vacation rental description

Vista Bahia Beach Resort condominium/hotel of Playa Panama is the one of the most serene beachfront communities on the north west coast of Costa Rica and combines the convenience of a full service resort with accommodations, services, and amenities guests have come to expect of condominium living. Just 20 to 25 minutes from the Liberia International Airport where non-stop flights arrive, it is most convenient. The condos are strategically located just 3 minutes walking distance from the healing waters of Papagayo Bay. The Gulf of Papogayo is considered the Gold Coast of Costa Rica because of its sun-drenched beaches, year-round surf, picturesque stretches of beaches and seaside communities. From booming resort towns to undeveloped white sand beaches, the Gold Coast is a Mecca for wave-riders, sun-lovers and adventure aficionados. Located at the resort there are beaches all around; to the left at low tide is a small private beach where you can be alone for hours. To the right, during high tide, you can walk the beach and circle all the way across to the far side of the bay where you will discover a reef and a great variety of coral and shells on the beach.

Our condominiums are located on the bottom floor of a two-story, four-unit building. There is security on the premises 24/7. The suites are situated close to the Pavilion where the pool, bar, lounge, Papillon Restaurant and more amenities are located. The entire community is surrounded by the natural landscape, it is one of the most beautiful places in the world, and has a unique flora and fauna. This is unlike most resorts where they often clear cut the natural foliage and then replant. Because of its undisturbed surroundings you will wake up to families of monkeys (even babies) in nearby trees and enjoy their frolicking as you enjoy your morning breakfast on the balcony along with all sorts of wildlife.

The Papillon Restaurant is located in a stunning rustic open rancho that has been upgraded and detailed to create an incredible ambiance. With a Mediterranean menu they offer variety filled with exquisite dishes to please the most demanding taste buds. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Room Service and Stacks at the Pool offered every day. Open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

This is a nature lover’s paradise. The abundant wildlife offers any avid photographer the opportunity to photograph a variety of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles and flora at close range. Take a trip to the Volcanoes and you could be on the top of world with amazing views. Imagine the pictures you will be able to take up there!

The condo has 800 sq feet of living space and sleeps four persons with one queen bedroom and a sleeper sofa in the living room. The bathroom has his and her sinks and the shower/bath tub is in a closed room along with the commode. The cozy kitchen is appointed with beautiful Granite counter tops, sink, dual electric burners, refrigerator/freezer, microwave oven, toaster, utensils, plates, glasses, pots and pans. Everything you need to prepare breakfast or lunch if you wish. It is not really set up to cook dinners but small dinners will work. Since we are in a Condo/Hotel Resort each condo is set up exactly the same. The management only allows a certain amount of kitchen utensils in each unit so it is not up to us to add more like I would like. There are limitations in utensils to use in the kitchen, I can explain more if you would like to discuss the kitchen.

My wife and I love to enjoy the mornings in the condo so we go to the local market which is minutes away and stock up on the copious amounts of fresh fruit, eggs, cheese and breads, not to mention the local beer (Imperial and Bavaria) for later that day!

If extra sleeping accommodations are desired for your kids or other guests there is a connecting door to our other condo unit. The connected condo can be part of your stay for a slight increase in the rate.

Before you go I would love to chat with you to let you know what I have experienced in the past 7 years of visiting this area. I never, I repeat never had a bad meal. The restaurants in that area are incredible. If you are a seafood lover you are in for a treat. If not, you still will have phenomenal meals. I have a list of restaurants we go to regularly and would recommend to anyone who stays here to patronize them for your own good! As far as beaches, ours (Playa Panama) is the most private as I mentioned earlier, 5 minutes away to the next town is Playa Hermosa, now this beach has beautiful sand and more waves for body surfing. There are also restaurants and bars on the beach for breathtaking sunset dinners and cocktails. Another 10 minutes away is Playa Coco where the tourist shops, restaurants and bars are. There you could find the nightlife area, should you feel the need to party! The beach there is also nice.

Please do not hesitate to ask any questions. I am always open to help out in any way possible.

Pura Vida!

Keywords: Condominium property, Resort, Restaurant & Bar, Pool, Hiking Trails, Tours, Wildlife, Birds, Fishing, on Pacific Ocean beach in Playa Panama, Guanacaste province, 20 minutes from Liberia Airport. Perfect for romantic get aways and families. Children friendly. The resort owner has decided to close the restaurant and bar down during the slow season this year. It should be up for the high season but I just want you to be aware. The good news is the $25 per day fee is no longer in effect plus you will be in an upgraded condo with unobstructed views. Below is what you will expect to get when you arrive.

The units will have all the same amenities in terms of towels soaps coffee, etc (just like a hotel). The Kayaks, snorkel gear, pool will be available as well as chairs. We are working on getting SKY TV to set up cable/Internet since the resort owner shut down the cable/internet for the slow season. As well there will be people on the resort 24/7. The only main change is that the restaurant and front desk won't be operating but James the manager of the resort will be down at the office most of the time so if you need anything he can assist you with that.

So the biggest change is no restaurant/bar and possibly no cable/internet (to be determined if installed in time for your arrival) But the good news is the $25 per day fee is waived plus you will be in an upgraded condo with unobstructed views. Everything else around the grounds will be exactly the same, walkways and trails with overlooks to the beach, wildlife all around.

traveler reviews for this playa hermosa (guanacaste) condo rental

Great location and quiet time in Playa Panama

Review submitted: March 30, 2014   Date of arrival: February 26, 2014

We had a great stay in Vista Bahia. The condo was confortable, although not new. The kitchen was useful to prepare simple meals, like breakfast and lunch, which we would bring with us on day trips. The location was perfect, near stores, beaches and highway, which was great to travel around. The owner was very helpful before and during the trip. He provided us with useful information like restaurants, supermarkets, excursions, etc. And he very eager to make sure we have what we needed. If we return in Guanacaste, we will definitely go back to Playa Panama and this condo. We were in the middle of the nature, we say monkeys, birds, and it was very quiet and relaxing.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: I am happy you had a great stay at our Condo/Resort. You did exactly what we do as far as breakfast and lunch, which is what it is set up for. Even the small dinner will work too. I love the location that is why we purchased in this area, so close to everything but yet in a very tranquil location away from the crowds. Being set inside a natural forest habitat keeps the wildlife all around us. I am always trying to make my guest vacations the best they can be because I know this is for some once in a lifetime experience. Whatever I can do I will try for you to make it a relaxing or adventurous vacation, all depends on what you want. If there is anything I can do for you in the future just let me know.

DO NOT pass on this gem!

Review submitted: November 25, 2013   Date of arrival: November 11, 2013

This place was amazing. The condo was beautiful, roomy, and just perfect for what we needed. We got to see a family of monkeys first thing when we woke up, right out the balcony! There are two totally different styles of beaches here, and the walk to the one on the left, is breathtaking. The dark sand beach was perfect for my two year old and six year old, no huge waves, just calm water and tons of sand for them to play in! They also loved the tide pools and rocks to the left. We had to walk a ways to find the rocks, but it was worth it, the view from the point was spectacular. Don't stop at the first point, go beyond it and see the beauty of this place. We were the only people on both beaches for the majority of the day, there was only one other couple, so it was great to not be surrounded by a hundred people. When it says private, its true. The restaurant was also delicious. We only had breakfast, but it was great food, the staff was super nice and helpful. I would definitely stay here again in a heartbeat! We only stayed at this condo one night, but it was truly amazing. All the things we got to see in one day was spectacular.

Owners response: We are so happy you thought your stay was amazing at our Condo/Resort. The way they developed the condos without clear-cutting the bluff inside a natural forest habitat keeps the wildlife all around us, none of the native animals left the area. The beaches are gorgeous, peaceful and breathtaking. We could sometimes walk the bigger beach for 45 minutes and not see 1 person, which is just amazing. Our restaurant is delicious, I always make it a point to eat there ate least 2 time while we are there. The food is always fresh and the atmosphere is very romantic with few around. Our resort staff always tries to do their best to help all guests, they are great people. If there is anything I can do for you in the future just let me know.
