Our best vacation!

  • 5 of 5
The pictures can't fully illustrate the beauty and spaciousness of this condo. The size and layout easily accommodated our family of 4 (with room to spare) and the decor was elegant and tasteful. The condo was equip with more than just the necessities - full size washer & dryer, first aid kit, board games, DVD's, beach towels and beach toys. In addition to the beautiful pool on site, we had access to the hotel's concierge services, butterfly pavilion, and other amenities.

The views from the large balcony of the ocean, beach and wildlife were truly amazing. Every day we were dazzled by the macaws, monkeys, birds and reptiles that lingered naturally in full view of our outdoor dining table and lounge areas. Watching the sun set with a glass of wine topped each day of adventure.

The beach itself is gorgeous and the surrounding area has a lot to offer such as a full restaurant, clean bathrooms and activities such as snorkeling, paddle boarding and boogie board rentals. 2 lifeguards keep a watchful eye.

The weather was perfect most of the week. It was warm and on the humid side and since this is considered the "Green Season" we were not surprised when we had rain in the afternoon on one day and a quick shower on another. Don't believe the forecast online before you go! It's sunny and beautiful in June!

We did many of the activities recommended by Guy: Carara National Park, viewed crocodiles at the Tarcoles Bridge, Vista Los Suenos zip line tour and watched the sun set from Villa Caletas. In addition, we took an ATV tour, a Waterfall tour and spent time at the beach. So much to do!!

The owner, Guy, was fantastic. He kept in contact before, during and after our stay. Prior to our arrival, he provided us with an information packet and all the necessary details we needed to get to the condo (rental car info, currency, location of grocery store, etc). Once we arrived, he had someone there to greet us who provide us with a cell phone for our use during our stay. Guy called the first night to check in and then emailed us the next day with additional advice on where to dine within 30 minutes, great places to see the sunset and the location of the large grocery store. He was so accommodating and has thought of everything!

This was by far our best vacation - full of wonder and adventure. We will definitely come again!

Great experience

  • 5 of 5
Had a great time. Condo was excellent, very spacious with plenty of room for 6 adults and children. Views from balcony were fantastic. Costa Rica is a beautiful country. Playa Blanca beach with it's white sand was absolutely amazing. The outdoor bar and restaurant was a bonus. Guy was extremely helpful prior to arriving and also left a cell phone for us to use to book excursions etc. The list of restaurants Guy had sent us was also very helpful. We had a fantastic time and would most definitely visit again.

Great Experience and Perfect location!!!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this beautiful condo for 5 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The pictures do not do it justice at all. I did research on places to stay for months before my family traveled and this was the absolute best value for what you get bar none. Perfect view, perfect amount of space for 6 of us, easy access to pool below, access to the resort, Playa Blanca is an awesome beach, kitchen had everything! Right down to a garlic press and lemon juicer. We cooked several meals right at our condo and ate meals out on the giant balcony overlooking the ocean. Guy the owner was extremely easy to work with and very repsonsive. Check in was simple. He keeps a cell phone at the condo for any need to communicate. This beautiful spot is located less than 90 minutes from the airport and San Jose. Great large flat screen TV with drawers full of DVD movies. Our kids enjoyed movie nights when the sun went down often.
If you are looking for a VRBO, this is the one.
Only negative was that the hot water flowing into the giant spa tub runs a little slow. Took a long time to fill. AND, do NOT go to Manuel Antonio. There are Monkeys right down by the picnic area as you enter Playa Blanca beach. 100 yards from the condo. We drove 1.5 hours to Manuel Antonio and did see Sloth and Monkeys, but was not worth burning a day to go to that beach in our opinion. Playa Blanca was a better beach!
Thanks Guy for opening up your place for us to rent. If we come back to Costa Rica (which we would love), we will look you up again for sure.

Great vacation nice apartment amazing surrounding

  • 5 of 5
We are a family of four, first time we all went there, 2nd time only 3 of us were able to make it. You can bet we will return next year around the same dates as we did this one. Your condo is clean, well furnished and well stocked and Johan, your man there, is really ready at any request or question.
Playa blanca is amazing and really at a short distance, however I'll recommend to rent a golf cart for maximum convenience getting around the whole place cause is large enough.
The view from the balcony is beautiful at any time, the weather is as you would expect, perfect!.
What else can I say, read the reviews they are all saying the same and it's true.

Thank you so much Guy!

We had a great vacation at the Golden Reef! We are a Family of 4 with 2 kids.
The condo was in great conditions, beautiful apartment, neat, fully equipped, spacious and furnished with great taste. The view from the terrace is breathtaking. Easy access to beaches and the resort amenities. Playa blanca only 5 minutes walking distance, gorgeous beach surrounded by a reach forest. Strongly recommended. We will for sure return for an other vacation!
