About the Owner
I purchased this wonderful condo as construction was just beginning. It was purchased primarily for my personal enjoyment and it is maintained and furnished to the standard of my own home . I love the time I spend there and I know anyone who stays there will have an outstanding vacation.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Syd your condo is absolutely beautiful with a great layout and we loved the quiet location in Langosta as compared to Tamarindo .The staff at the complex was friendly and dealt with any minor issues or questions we had immediately . When I met you at your house I mentioned that the idea was for my mother to sit on the balcony and have her tea and enjoy the view and that is exactly what she did and loved it .
On a side note when I dropped my mother off at the airport to return to B.C. she began to cry and thanked me for taking her as she thought she would never see that part of the world . In the days since my brother and aunt have and said she has not stopped talking about the trip and is showing everyone her pictures. My son was bugging us to return to Costa Rica again when we were only 8 days into the trip. He took up boogie boarding and now loves it.
I can answer your question with a simple "yes" , it was up to our expectations but I do not think that would truly show how we felt about the trip and the condo.
On behalf of myself and my family thanks for the rental and we will be back .

Great Spring Break Family Getaway
Great family Vacation
I will start out with a few minor negatives to set expectations.
The bathrooms are not air conditioned. The top floor bedroom air conditioning unit cant keep up with the hot weather outside (97degF) in the daytime. It is fine in the night. We had some small ants during the first few days. RPM maintenance came in when we were gone and took care of the issue. We had issues with the safe, some missing bulbs and a small stone blocking the kitchen cold water line. RPM maintenance took care of these issues. Some of the pots/pans need to be replaced. The phone works but has a broken display on it and needs to be replaced. There are 20 steps to climb between floors when you leave the unit. So, 40 steps or 2 flights of stairs gets you to the pool/beach level. If you're in OK shape, this is not an issue. As mentioned a few times, the beach in front of the unit is NOT swimmable. You need to walk 1/4 mile to the left AND make sure you go at a lower tide. That Langosta Playa beach is dangerous when the tide is high or coming in because of strong estuary currents. You cant walk along the beach when the tide is high and need to check the tide tables.
Positives: The view and sunsets are amazing. The furniture in the units are very nice and the beds are comfortable. The pool is wonderful. The beach tidepooling out front is fun (wear sandals.) The employees at the gatekeepers/cleaners were nice. RPM management was great with maintenance, questions and for all our tours. The kitchen worked well for our family to prepare meals. WiFi worked well.
I would say that you need a car to stay here comfortably. The walk to Tamarindo isn't pleasant because the road is un-paved, dusty and hot. The owner recommended Dollar rent-a-car. We got a 4-wheel drive 7 seater with a portable GPS (highly recommend) for $450/week. Remember that Costa Rica is a 3rd world/developing nation. There will be chickens and dogs in the road occasionally. The drivers will pass you on narrow roads. If you are used to driving in cities, you will be fine.
The supermarkets had everything we needed. The fruit, pineapples, mangoes, avocados were amazing. Try some experiments with the local food. We enjoyed Costa Rican plantain chips, a nut mix and their packaged OJ.
Overall, we had a great time and would return.
Yes there is a flight of stairs to the condo and if you walk down to the pools, yes there are 2 flights of stairs. Perhaps the next place you rent you should be certain there is an elevator. Personally I like a little exercise or my legs will atrophy.
The condo itself is very well maintained but does that mean things are perfect, no. From time to time any condo will require things to be fixed or something to be done. That's life.
In conclusion I have to say that I have not had this many comments from any guest. They have all loved the place.
Perfect Costa Rican Location
The condo is superb; clean, well equipped, ideally located overlooking the beach, with unbelievable sunset views. Our kids loved the nearby beach (including the free entertainment from the monkeys), the lagoon, and the pool in the complex (as well as the wifi!!). With a local supermarket and several restaurants within walking distance, yet far enough away from Tamarindo to escape the crowds, we found this to be an ideal location for a family vacation. Hope we are able to return sometime!
Great place for families during a busy holiday week
