  • Awesome people, awesome property, perfect location....

    "This is a perfect base for an adventurous visit to Costa Rica! Elizabeth and Eduardo, the owners, live just below the rental. They were absolutely wonderful to work with. They helped us before the trip with everything from making sure our cell phones would work, to sorting out and making reservations for activities, to providing perfect directions for finding the place in the dark. Once we were there, Elizabeth and her family (including three very friendly loving dogs) very much embraced us at the level we wanted. When we needed help finding something in the house, they were there, but they were never intruding. Elizabeth was wonderful at being available by email whenever we had a question. Eduardo and Elizabeth invited us to join them for a bonfire for New Year's Eve, which was a great time. They are lovely people, and we enjoyed their children Cooper and Shane a lot too! The home itself was great! It has four very separate bedrooms, and one huge great room/kitchen area joining all of them. We were two couple and two single people, and we all had plenty of space and privacy; while at the same time there was plenty of room to work as a group in the kitchen, and hang out on the deck together. The house is only a few years old, and is in great shape. There is plenty of everything in the kitchen for you to use, and everything works. Because the home is on the edge of the jungle, you will definitely see lots of birds, butterflys, flowers, and the corresponding insects. This is not a sterile inclusive resort, but a very clean and tidy home on the edge of the jungle. Expect the howler monkeys to wake you most mornings, which we all thought was very cool! The driveway is steep and exciting as you come up the hill from Dominicalita. If you are from the country, it's no big deal. If you aren't used to challenging dirt roads, well, you will be fine but don't be surprised. Both for easy access to this place and for getting around, it is nice to have a roomy 4 wheel drive vehicle. The local people are also wonderful. Dominicalita, a couple km away, is a sweet little very local town where you can get basic groceries and lots of smiles. Basic Spanish knowledge is helpful, but not required. You can get to tons of activities within a half hour drive. We are all happy to endorse Elizabeth and this rental...we give it 5 stars. Mike from Michigan"

  • Ideal location...great people

    "Just returned from 12 absolutely wonderful days at this condo. It was a perfect fit for us and we loved how close the beach is (only steps) and the access to the pool is ideal (even less steps). We had family, with several young adults, staying right next door and they were always on the go: goofing around on the beach, boogie boarding, walking to town (short walk or a $2 cab ride), or planning excursions (which can be set up through either Celine, the people at the gatehouse, online or while walking around downtown). When we arrived, Celine met us at the condo with a welcome package including milk, eggs, avocado, mango, beer and wine which was awesome after an exhausting day of travel. Celine was always available to tend to our needs and offer suggestions for activities. Attention to detail or what? Lovely units...very lovely people. Always enjoyed chatting with Celine and Anne Catherine (who just happened to be there...lucky us!) There is NO hustle and bustle at this complex but a casino next door which can provide some of this and Clarita's which is entertaining in itself (Bucket of beer for $10 and too many interesting signs to keep you chuckling). Quite a variety of entertainment (all kinds...stories from the kids) can be found downtown though. We met some great people around the pool where most gathered "sometime during the day" to share stories of their adventures and give ideas for new ones. Walked the beach every morning for sunrise and enjoyed amazing sunsets from the beach or even the patio (yes the patio!) every evening. Photo ops everywhere...iguanas poolside, macaws in the trees, toads on the patio...on and on! Taco Bar was a favourite for the kids, Morales for ribs, great food at the Wishbone...too many options...even cooked at home a few times. Thank you sooo much for everything! We will be back!"

  • Loved it!!

    "This condo was perfect for my husband and I and our two college-age kids, but it would be perfect for just about any family. We were on the go a lot of the time but the time spent at the condo was just great. The amenities are terrific. There is a lot to enjoy at the resort. The pools were sparkling clean and the beach club access pass was clutch. We felt so at home at the condo; the furnishings were great and everything you need is right there! A golf cart is a must - a quick trip to the grocery store and you are set to eat at home, even cook out...(and there are even fairies who come in and clean up after you while you are out the next day). But if you are truly on vacation, mom might prefer to eat out, and there are many options for casual dining just a golf cart or taxi ride away. The condo option was truly preferable to the Marriott option for the same total cost. DelMar 4K is the way to go!"
