  • Great Apartment, Great Location - Worked perfectly for us

    "We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a great place to stay on a beautiful yet quiet beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will no doubt return in the future. The owner Keith could not have been more helpful and was very responsive to our emails. We really enjoyed the Palms resort, it's beautifully laid out and the sunsets were amazing! We found the staff went out of their way to be welcoming and did an excellent job of keeping the grounds, the pools and the beach in excellent condition. The pool has a nice bar at where you can order food & drinks during the day. FYI, we also had some very good meals at Coco Loco - the beachfront restaurant adjacent to the Palms."

  • Casa Del Mono Perezoso - what a wonderful experience

    "Arrived yesterday afternoon after a wonderful time in Guanacaste - thank you for sharing your home It was beautiful, very comfortable and we always looked forward to getting "home" after a long day of activities. Your Manager was great and was always available even for our late evening phone calls. The gate guards at the Preserve were super and helped us with our daily taxi needs. They were very courteous and always welcomed us with a smile - we will miss them!! The Beach Club was great - very hospitable and helpful with our tour/activities. Had to go back to the Beach Club before we left for the "crepe suzette". Our son and his family will be doing a similar trip and we will make sure they at Casa Del Mono Perezoso. 'Til our next visit. evelyn"

  • Family with young kids

    "Two families met at this house with 2 toddlers and a baby. House is just as pictured. Very clean. Has all the appliances/amenities one would need. However it does NOT come with AC throughout (only in the bedrooms) which is fine but just different from what the website says. Also does have a washing machine but NOT a dryer (although there are clothes lines outside). Pool is lovely, kept clean daily by groundskeeper who lives right next door. This guy is also available for any other concerns or questions, although we had none. Property manager, Randy, was friendly and met us at the house upon arrival. Seems like a good guy. We were concerned about having to pay with cash only (does not take credit cards except for deposit) but it was all legit. Property is located directly on the beach and along a strip of homes. Next door neighbors are visible from yard but with landscape still have a fair amount of privacy. It was perfect for us: we like our privacy but also good to not be too secluded when in a foreign country. We felt very safe in this area. Locks on house are appropriate. Beach is clean and no rocks, but unfortunately is a little steep and also small during high tide, so not a great beach for kids to play on. Beach not too crowded. Good for sitting to watch the sunset, taking walks and playing in the water. Water was clean (no seaweed) and fairly warm, but was not the crystal blue waters like we've seen on other beaches (not sure if that's due to location or timing). Grassy part of yard in January was completely burnt yellow and dry, unlike the nice green lush grass seen in the pics, so again not great for kids to play on. No crib available but we made do making bumpers around a bed for the baby. Huge roosters were in our yard each morning and a family of monkeys came to visit us one afternoon-- fun for the kids!"

  • Perfect Adventure

    "The place is gorgeous! Exactly like the photos. The entrance is grand and the house is huge!! It was so comfortable. I'm going to break this review down into as many sub-sections as I can so that reviewers can have an overall perspective of the property. I stayed for a week with 8 other adults. All 5 bedrooms were utilized. There are 4 in the main home, and 1 little casita (think guest house) behind the home on the property. PROS: The grandeur and the beauty was a huge plus for our group. Location was great close to beaches, on a golf course, centrally located to other towns. HOWEVER, rent a car or golf carts - depending on what you plan to do on vacation. The compund/reserve that the golf course is located on is huge, so going to the beach house, etc can be a long walk. Going off the reserve is not possible without a car. The home is in Tamrindo beach but closer to Playa Avellana, which is gorgeous and known for its surfs! Another bonus pro, the house is technically not handicap accessible; however, my friend who has limited mobility and uses a wheel chair was able to stay in one of the bedrooms on the lower level of the home, with entrance through the garage with no problems. He was able to comfortable get around the interior and exterior of the home in his chair. Royce was so easy to work with! Totally accommodating and very responsive to any questions or needs we had! CONS: It is a Caribbean location be prepared for things outside of your control, like random losses of water or power. (We can be so spoiled with life's luxuries) The home advertises as coming with house keeping everyday, but be flexible in your interpretation of that. Remember, you're in a villa, a private home, not a hotel! Keeping that theme in mind, pack all toiletries and other necessities you may need. The home had very limited selection of seasonings and condiments for food. We had to buy everything, food in Costa Rica is not cheap. But with these as the only cons, I'll take it! Already planning a return trip :)"
