Peaceful, Relaxing, Comfortable, Safe - A beautiful quality upscale condo in the green belt, on the western edge of the city, with second-to-none customer attention, just 15 minutes from downtown San Jose, and 45 minutes from Pacific Beaches. Alegro Premium Vacation Condo welcomes and offers you everything you need for your stay, short, or long, whether for vacation, medical/dental, visiting family, or business. If we don't have the dates, still ask, since we have other condos available. We are travel planning professionals and are well connected with other condos, hotels and tours all over the country.

Alegro Premium Vacation Condo is conveniently located away from pool noise. Our swimming pools are a just quick one minute walk, but they are far enough removed to avoid the annoying noise and loud conversations that poolside condos suffer!

Start your Costa Rican day with a great coffee or juice under the umbrella on your large private terrace with a view of the gardens. With the morning sunshine, walk in the green zones, later, relax in the swimming pools, grab a game of tennis, freshen up, and head out for some shopping 6 minutes away, then head home, call in local grilled chicken, or pizza, light the candles, pour the wine, and just sit back, snuggle between the big cushions and enjoy a great movie or mini series on the huge flat-panel plasma TV, before relaxing in a wonderful bed with a great book, and then getting a fantastic night's rest.

Alegro Premium Vacation Condo is located in the fast-growing south-west of San Jose, with direct easy access to Prospero Fernandez Expressway and Caldera Highway (Route 27) - the fastest highway in Costa Rica. The condo is just 6 minutes west from the Forum in Lindora/Santa Ana, 10 minutes west from Multiplaza Escazu Mall, and 15 minutes west from Parque Sabana Sur, downtown San Jose. You will also be about 14 minutes south from SJO - San Jose Airport, and less than 45 minutes from the Pacific Coast. Alegro Premium Vacation Condo has a unique location, with amazing (can't get lost) fast expressway access via the new 27 highway. With your rental car or by taxi, you feel so close to the most modern zones of San Jose, but then you realize just how close you are to the volcanos and the Pacific beaches for day trips, too.

Alegro Premium Vacation Condo is ideal for singles, couples and families or groups of friends...with two full bedrooms (one ensuite), and two areas of couches that can be converted into sleeping space. Sleeps 1 to 5, or even 8, very comfortably (and could sleep up to 11 for a small group short-stay for debrief before heading to the airport or for the first night to recover and brief after arriving in Costa Rica).

This beautiful two bedroom, two bathroom, garden-view condo is fully furnished and comes with a full kitchen and 3 sofas in two living areas, as well as a beautiful terraza complete with outdoor tables, umbrella, and plants. There's international cable TV, wireless broadband internet, free secure parking for your rental car, and even a washing machine. Guests can also enjoy a complimentary porto-crib for one infant to sleep in, as well as child booster car seats. As a Parkland's guest, you will enjoy complimentary access to the beautiful swimming pools (kids and adults), kids play ground, tennis courts, park lands and lagoon (feed the ducks!), running trail as well as to the BBQ areas (with advance reservation). Complimentary housekeeping is included twice a week, and daily housekeeping can be also arranged. We also offer great value rentals of a Costa Rican cell phone and well programmed and easy to use Costa Rican GPS units. It's all part of meeting your needs, and the excellent service we love to offer our guests at Parklands Vacation Condo.

Parklands Group's upscale premium condo rates are hard to beat when it comes to our amazing facilities, comfort, security and free recreational activities that are all included. We sometimes have simple budget condos we can make available for those not needing so much comfort and amenities and full customer service, so please write! Feel free to check our rates and geographical area by clicking 'Check Rates'.

Reservations will also only be processed by email and your down payment is the first step to guarantee your dates. We want the chance to better the price of similar accommodation quotes and services you might be considering. So eMail us ASAP and let's talk! :-)

We want to always offer the best value and the best condo stay in Costa Rica!

About the Owner

We started by buying a condo and creating and designing a beautiful living area inside, to match the beauty of the landscaped park lands outside. As more and more folk chose to stay, we created more great options. We are professional travel planners for anyone needing authentic honest help in Costa Rica, Panama, or Peru.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We very much appreciated how the condo felt like our home during our stay. It made our trip a lot more authentic than if we had stayed at a hotel. We explored almost all the Central Valley and we absolutely loved the beauty, tranquility and great vibe of Costa Rica. The Poas waterfall (and butterflies) was a great activity and the cultural night a very entertaining and cute experience. Pura Vida!

Just as described

I stayed at this Condo with my younger kids and my grandkids. They had a ball, the pool was wonderful and so was the play ground, they even had a see-saw haven't seen one of those in years. The owner was very attentive to power needs, everything we needed was provided, it was home away from home.

Owner's Response: As we processed your booking, we wondered how a large family group with many kids and grandkids like yours, a total of 13, would fit in Alegro Premium Condo (a condo that is spacious but for two guests, maybe five). We certainly had to have prepared a lot of sheets and fresh white towels for you all! And two of our drivers and two vans from the airport at midnight on your arrival. While we asked for a damage deposit of you, it turned out to be perfect. You had beautiful attitudes and embraced the space and green landscaping and pools and security with gusto. Karla, you really cared for this Parklands marketed condo with love and care. It really was a pleasure to welcome you all, and help you with a good deal to rent the vehicles so you could explore Costa Rica, and we hope to do it again! You are welcome home anytime! :-) Thanks for choosing to trust Parklands!

Positive intro to Costa Rica:Wonderful Clean Oasis

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five stayed for almost a week. While on the outside of San Jose, the condo serves as an absolute oasis! It's incredibly well-equipped, clean & in a great, little, condo neighborhood. Paolo provided fantastic suggestions, service & support. We never would have experienced the rafting, coffee tour, water falls & city destinations without his advice & attentiveness. This is a such a great location for families because you can serve yourself in a great kitchen with comfortable spaces throughout, and you easily can access activities that make Costa Rica a great, energetic destination!

Fantastic condo, fantastic service

  • 5 of 5
My family of five (two adults, three teenagers) stayed in this condo managed by Paolo & Sara Wright. The condo is exactly as presented on the site and very, very well equipped. We had all the supplies we needed and all questions answered within minutes of phone or email contact. Paolo & Sara went above and beyond to help us get setup with great activities, including river rafting, a coffee tour and a trip to the La Paz waterfall gardens. Paolo also sent us to a fantastic little wood factory where they hand-make all the beautiful Costa Rican wood jewelry, place mats, wood chimes, etc. that you will find at souvenier shops throughout the country--and for much, much cheaper. We loved seeing how things were made and talking with the staff who make the products. The grounds of the complex are beautiful, the pool tranquil and the tennis courts just a short walk. Paolo provided directions anywhere we needed, and he even set us up with some DVDs for late evenings in. We had a great stay just outside San Jose easily accessing the amazing activities in the area. We also had a great time cooking some meals in because the kitchen and house have everything we needed. Lastly, we had great instructions on everything related to the condo because of a well-organized binder (this is not the case with some home-stay rentals). Thanks so much to Paolo & Sara for a great stay. We definitely will recommend this apartment to anyone--for so many reasons!

First class stay!

  • 5 of 5
Anyone who stays in this condo with Paolo and Sara as their guides will just enjoy it to the ultimate experience of Costa Rica! The condo was fabulous and comfortable. It was a great place to stay that seemed like home. We (my husband, 8 month old son, 9 yr old daughter and myself) stayed 30 days and not only did they have adventures for us to experience, we also had the luxury of rest at the condo. The condo has everything you need and more.. It is definitely the place for a family getaway!! Our daughter so enjoyed the atmosphere. Paolo and Sara are the best!!!

great Times in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Parklands for the entire month of Feb. and had a great time. The owners of the condo, Paolo and Sara, were very accommodating and helpful. They live on site and are also travel agents, so were able to book all our tours and anything else we needed. The condo is very comfortable and we felt like it was our home away from home. The condo has good security and is in a great location. I would highly recommend this condo and Parkland services, to make your vacation fun and stress free!

Amenities

From the Owner

We love the close-ness to everything. A day trip to the Pacific beaches, just minutes from the coolest mall in the country, and all the other modern amenities of the capital and airport. We love the safety, the green spaces, the clean air, and the weather. Close to San Jose (and with fast access) but not right in the city.
