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).

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5
My partner and I stayed at the condo for 10 days. We loved the accommodations. The kitchen had everything we needed, the bedrooms were spacious, the living room was comfortable. We lived in the infinity pool (or the ocean), which was always clean. The on site security was a plus, seeing that we had a rental car. The beaches and shopping were minutes away by car. We had never stayed off resort before, but this location made it easy. We were able to visit many beaches, take day trips, and come back to "home base". The freedom was great. Residents of the local town were very friendly, knowing more Spanish would've been useful, but we got by. We met great people at the condo. Costa Rica is so beautiful it's breathtaking. We saw howler monkeys, iguana, various birds and geckos - and this was all at the condo. We felt safe here (always at the top of my list when I travel), in the condo, the community and the country in general. Dealing with Steven was very easy. He responded quickly to our emails and provided us with everything we needed to know about the condo and the area we were in. It really is ideal for a vacation spot, you can stay in the area and visit the local beaches and restaurants, or travel on day trips to other destinations. There was so much to do and see, we didn't get it all in this one trip. We did shop for groceries as well and cook our own food, the local grocery stores have everything you need. We would indeed like to return to this condo and continue our Costa Rican adventure! Thank you Steven for the opportunity.

repeat renter

  • 5 of 5
I'm a repeat renter and plan on spending at least two months there every winter. It's close to many Nat'l Parks and beaches and there are plenty of restaurants to choose from. Having a car is an advantage if you like to tour around the area. The condo is very comfortable with all the essential appliances. The grounds are kept very well, as is the infinity pool - a real delight on a hot day. The gazebo is a favourite spot during the hottest hours. I love the howler monkeys and the variety of birds around the property. It's lovely to stay and enjoy the property or venture off to different attractions in the area. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone wishing a lovely quiet holiday.

Amazing time!

  • 5 of 5
My family, 2 adults and 2 children, thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay. Steven was amazing to deal with and quick to respond to any questions we had. The unit was clean and stocked with everything we needed. The onsite security was fantastic and the grounds were kept extremely clean. The pool and its view were incredible! The atmosphere within the complex was peaceful and relaxing-perfect for families and couples. Our girls loved the howler monkeys that we often saw in the trees near the condo. We did not rent a car and did not seem to find this to be a problem at all. We walked many times to Ocotal which was a short, although hilly, walk. We also walked many times to Coco beach which is a longer, but flatter walk. It was very easy to get a taxi back to the condo from Coco beach. We enjoyed many excursions such as zip-lining, horseback riding, mud baths, beach & snorkelling tours and a Palo Verde river boat tour. There is so much to do in Costa Rica the problem is choosing from the so many companies and different types of excursions. We really enjoyed the restaurants in Coco beach and the variety of food available. Our last night there we discovered a wonderful Costa Rican restaurant called Las Olas Lounge in Coco beach. The seafood was amazing! We hope to make it back again soon!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had such an amazing time... and that the monkeys showed up for your kids! You are truly one with nature when they show up.

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!!

Homey place, view

  • 4 of 5
Our kids loved the pool even though it is not that big. I also love that it's overlooking the mountains. The unit is homey though tap water needs to be used sparingly because it is a commodity in Costa Rica. You have to let the condo property manager know right away so they can truck in water right away. Overall it made for a good stay.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a great time!

We are aware of the potential water issues during the dry season - although it doesn't happen often there is always that possibility and as you said... water is a commodity and must be used sparingly (we aren't in North America after all!!)

Having an on-site property manager is certainly a bonus for us and our guests. He is quick to respond and will provide whatever assistance he can.

We hope you will consider staying with us again in the future.

Thanks for the review and all the best!

Idyllic winter getaway!

  • 5 of 5
An excellent central location from which to explore day trips to National Parks (Rincon, Santa Rosa, Guanacaste, etc.) and different towns of interest - Tamarindo & Coco for shopping, Guaitil for pottery, Hermosa for beaches, etc. We even took a day trip to Grenada, Nicaragua and thoroughly enjoyed it and would highly recommend this tour with Swiss Travel.

The accommodation was clean and perfect for our purposes - excellent beds, air conditioning, fully-equipped kitchen, wonderful infinity pool and fabulous panorama of mountain range. It was a thrill so see so many colourful birds and enjoy the howler monkeys.

The nearby towns of Coco & Ocotal had a plethora of restaurants to choose from, our favourites being "Papagallo" & "Tica Thai" in Coco and "Father Rooster" on Ocotal Beach. For a really special dinner, try "Gingers" at Playa Hermosa.

We will definitely return next year, the only difference will be to stay for a longer period of time. Even though we were out exploring every day, there are still so many more areas of interest. It's a fabulous spot to just relax and enjoy the view or branch out to different areas. It's not possible to get bored here!

Your review will provide our future guests with some good ideas for food and entertainment (myself included as I've never been to Gingers but will certainly go next time I am south!)

Thanks again for the kind words and we look forward to seeing you again next year!

Great condo with super pool and views

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in Stephen's condo for a month. No disappointments. Clean and well maintained. The place was stocked with all the little things to make you feel at home, such as 4 big beach towels, beach mats, toaster oven, blender, rice cooker, all kinds of cutlery, pots, pans, even wine glasses and a corkscrew. Most of our neighbors complained they had little or no cooking utensils, glasses, etc. There are 3 AC units in the condo, all work well, and you need them in the Costa Rica heat (over 30C every day). Stephen contacted us soon after arrival to ensure we were okay. The pool is outstanding, cleaned every day early, and has the best views in the area. The only thing to bear in mind with living on the upper level of the complex is that there is a very steep hill you have to climb to get to your unit. Also, the walk to the nearest beach, Ocotal, is 15 minutes and it goes up and down hills. The walk to town, Coco, is 45 minutes on a narrow winding road with considerable traffic. As Stephen's web ad says, "car recommended". We walked into town many times and took a taxi back (5 bucks each way), but you can't walk after say 10 am because it is just too hot. Look into car rentals unless you love challenging walks. Overall, the best unit in the complex I'd say.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your time and found our unit comfortable. We wanted to keep it like home so esnured it was fully stocked with everything you need.

The view is amazing, I agree, especially first thing in the morning with your coffee and the monkeys and birds in the trees next to the Rancho.

A car is definately recommended as it is a very hot climate (but a great escape from our northern winters)!!

Thanks again for the great review and hope to see you again sometime!
