About the Owner
We are from Canada and fell in love with Costa Rica on our first visit. Buying property here was an easy decision for us and we enjoy every minute of our time there. We hope you'll consider our unit to sit back and relax.
Guestbook comments from the manager
We had a wonderful time at the condo! We were there for a month in January of 2014. Everything was as advertised and the pool was especially nice. The neighbors were very friendly and gave us lots of insights into places to go and things to see in the area. There is 24-hour security staff that are very helpful in providing info as well. When we had a problem with the air-conditioner, the manager had a guy there to look at it the next day.
The manager picked us up at the airport (Liberia) for a nominal fee. This was great as we flew in at midnight. The condo has a deal with ADOBE rent-a-car that will deliver a car to the condo for a better price then you can get at the airport. We rented a cheap car and then used tours to take us to places that required 4-wheel drive. There are ADOBE office all over Costa Rica so if you have a problem they are just a few minutes away.
The condo is located between Playa Del Coco and Play Del Ocotal. You can easily walk to each beach; however if you do it midday its going to be hot. Many folks rent bikes or golf carts to get around town. There are lots of tours that you can take. Everything from sailing to turtle watching. The condo is located such that we rented a car for the entire month and drove all over Costa Rica. While folks will tell you a place is a long way away…everything of interest is within 100 miles or so on good roads. We ventured all the way down to Jaco, Arenal and Quepos for overnight trips.
Steven (the owner) was great to work with! We exchanged checks and deposits via mail with no problems. He responded quickly to any questions we had etc. We would definitely come back here again.
We would recommend it for couples, children and seniors (get a car or golf cart).

breathtaking view, quiet, secure PERFECT accommodation
We had a rental car but there are lots of taxis in Coco. Without a car, you can walk to playa Ocotal in 10 min but Coco a little further. My sister and her kids often biked to visit from Coco. There were also bike rentals in town.
The condo at La Colina is located in the hills, with the most spectacular view. For this reason, it is peaceful and quiet. My sister lives closer to town and has to put up with constant noise (roosters, dogs, firecrackers). Not so with this property. We enjoyed quiet nights and peaceful mornings watching the sun rise. With 2 kids, we also appreciated having a pool on site, with beautifully landscaped gardens and plenty of lounge chairs.
Inside the condo it was meticulously clean and tastefully decorated with all the amenities you would require. We especially appreciated the washing machine as we have a baby. Sleeping is comfortable. We didn't use the air conditioning at night but nice to know it's there if you need it...I think it gets much hotter in March, April. We had the good fortune of having perfect weather so we rarely stayed in, but the television, DVD player, and WiFi are big bonuses.
Lastly, the condo had a friendly and amenable staff who make guests feel safe and secure. There is always someone on duty. We had the misfortune of losing luggage, and they were very helpful coordinating the delivery of our bag from the airport.
A big thank you to our host, Steven. Everything was perfect. Great communication and we felt well prepared without the least apprehension. Can't wait for next year!
The information about the bicycle rentals is of great help to future renters - I know there are a couple of companies that rent them and at least one company that rents scooters.
Coco is a great spot to hang out but I agree, returning to the quietness of the condo is the best. Especially lounging by the infinity pool with a cold drink.
We look forward to having your again next year and again thank you for renting our condo.
Make sure you get some fresh coffee beans (there is a grinder in the kitchen) and watch the sunrise with your fresh coffee at least once. Highly recommend the sunset cruise we booked in Coco, very enjoyable.
Lastly, cannot say enough about how easy Steven was to work with. He always checked in on you and responded very quickly when you emailed. Thank you for the amazing vacation, we will be back!
Thanks for the amazing review - many renters ask about car rentals, etc so thank you for speaking to that. The bonus is that the roads in this part of the country are well maintained and easy to travel on.
The pool is a great way to cool off from the HOT Costa Rican sun that's for sure.
Thanks again for staying and come back any time!!
I'm glad all worked out for you without the use of a car for your stay - we've had a few renters stay with us without a car and seem to manage fine. It's a hot climate but walking really is the best way to see the true culture.
We've tried to keep the unit fully stocked as we would at home - it just makes the stay that much easier and comfortable.
What we love about Costa Rica (and this area) is the fact there is SO MUCH to do - which it looks like you did!!! Great!
Thanks so much for your positive review and again we are glad you enjoyed yourselves.
Please keep us in mind for a future trip and we hope to see you again!!
From the Owner
“Ocotal and surrounding area have beautiful views, a multitude of beaches and plenty of hiking. Close to Liberia, it's an easy drive from the International Airport with a fantastic coffee factory enroute. A short 10-15 minute walk to Playa Ocotal - one of the cleanest beaches in the country - rated 'blue-flag'. A short distance to Playas Del Coco for great seafood dining, shopping and strolling along the beach. Bicycle rentals are available in town and for those gym enthusiasts, there are 2 gyms in town (daily rates range $5-6). We have great internet and cable with many channels. In addition, we supply a DVD player with several movies to choose from.”

From the Owner
“Equipped with a stunning Infinity Pool and magnificent views, our unit is only a short walk to the beach. A short drive into Playas Del Coco and you'll enjoy fresh seafood every night along with some entertaining night life. A fish market is enroute to our unit as is a great outdoor fruit and vegetable market located next to the school in town. Amenities include 4 grocery stores, pharmacies and many tourist boutiques. And of course, who could resist watching the spectacular sunsets at one of the great beach bars located along the brand new promenade.”
