About Steven Latanville

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.

Steven Latanville purchased this condo in 2010

Why Steven Latanville chose Guanacaste

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks so much for everything! We had a very memorable, adventurous (hiking, beaches, scary driving..), and enjoyable vacation. We will refer others to you and if we do come back some day, we will come to your comfortable, spacious, well-equipped condo, with the nice staff and neighbors, and a wonderful 'landlord'.

You will love it!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and quiet, kept up place with breathtaking views! 24 hour security. My kids love the infinity pool, they started and ended the day with the pool. I was looking for something under a $100 and with a great view and a nice pool and I got it! Hermosa Beach is only 10-15 min away and is the nicest beach around. At Playa del Coco we did Marlin del Rey catamaran tour which was $85 pp for a 5 hour tour, totally worth it. Also we went to El Viejo Wetlands by ourselves (it's cheaper this way), had a Tempisque river boat tour with a nice lunch and wine at their beautiful restaurant. Try gelato at Playa del Coco, it's soooo good! also, Flamingo Beach is a must see!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed yourselves and that the condo was as expected. We also start and end our day in the pool - it is so refreshing and relaxing. It's nice to see that you explored the area as there is so much to see. The river cruise is something I didn't know about so will have to explore ourselves in November. Thank you again for the great review and we are glad you enjoyed yourselves. We hope to host you again in the future!

Beautiful property!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the the condo, the pool, and the security was wonderful.

The only draw back was the property manager Roberto was awful. He didn't seem welcoming. He was making comments that made us uncomfortable. And when we asked for another key so we could split up into groups he admitted that while we were asleep he tried to unlock the door with another set of keys. We were unhappy that he practically tried to come into our house without permission.

Also, while we were trying to receive the extra key that he offered when we arrived he said in an email that he'd meet me the following day at noon and then never showed up. And after that he ignored my emails for 4 days.

Although there were a few problems the vacation was wonderful, we loved Costa Rica, and would recommend the property to anyone.

Thank you.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed your time at our condo and that the condo met all of your needs. I wad quite surprised about your experience with our property manager. Usually all the feedback is extremely positive. I wish you had contacted me earlier as I could have looked into your issues. That being said I will speak with him to see what happened. I'd like to also thank you for your understanding that I was not able to provide you with a full security/damage deposit refund. Thank you again for your feedback.

We enjoyed our stay at Steven's condo very much! We were greeted by Robert (Tito) warmly and he made sure we had everything we needed throughout our week there. The accommodations were comfortable, clean and quaint, and the view was absolutely breathtaking! The photos are true-to-life. We had a little trouble finding it, so be sure to have a contact number handy, especially if arriving after dark. (No street names in CR and a few detours for bridge/road closures.) All in all, it was a great adventure and we'd definitely stay here again!

Thanks much! Kate, Jim, Emily and Madison

An automatic 5 star vote

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent the month of April 2016 in this condo. Absolutely everything was as good or better than advertised. Perfect size for a couple or a family of four. The unit is equipped with everything we could possibly need or want. The condo sits at the top of the complex with great views of the valley below. Because its higher on the hill and open all around you get some nice breezes to keep things cooler. It's a ground floor unit, so open the patio door and 10 steps later your in the infinity pool or under the gazebo. Loved the birds and monkeys. Every 6-7 days a troop of howler monkeys came by and hung out for a couple of days right behind the gazebo and cleaned off the new growth on the trees. And if you like parrots, pairs and flocks of small green parrots flew by mornings and evenings. The weather was in the 90s so we didn't do much walking but if you're so inclined it's about a 10-15 min walk over to Ocotal beach or into town. Will not hesitate to stay here again on our next trip to Costa Rica.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and had so many opportunities to view the wildlife (Howler's). We've always tried to make the unit as comfortable as we can so are glad that you were happy with everything. We hope you 'll consider renting from us again soon! All the best

A Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I returned to Costa Rica to travel throughout the northern and central parts of the country. Steven's condo became our home away from home. We stayed for over 2 months and enjoyed every day. The unit is comfortable and extremely well equipped. It's location provides stunning views out over the infinity pool that you never tire of. Jorge not only did an amazing job of taking care of the condo's grounds and the pool, but he became a personal friend. We will miss him until we return. The hill up to the condo's parking lot is steep but we used it daily in our walks to keep ourselves in shape. There are a number of great restaurants in the Coco/Ocotal area but don't miss the Garden 248 Gastro Pub, a new restaurant in Playa del Coco, it's great. From this condo's location there is always something to do from visiting the numerous beaches in the area, snorkeling, standup paddle boarding, surfing or just watching a great sunset. Venture out to watch a local rodeo, visit the monkey farm or to the Blue River to do some white water tubing and some zip lining. Visit Guaiitil for true native pottery or drive to Ostional for some turtle watching. Great location and a great owner. Steven was fantastic to work with. Without a doubt we'll be back.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you both enjoyed your time at our condo and certainly look forward to your return. The tips you provided will certainly help others determine what do to each day. I had recently heard about the new Gastro Pub and look forward to trying it out upon our return. Thank you for the great review and please do come back. Costa roca will miss you.

Fantastic rental in Coco/Ocotal area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 8 days. It is an amazing 2 bedroom rental. Beautiful scenery right from your apartment with the pool mingling to the mountains around. 3 min drive to Ocotal beach and 7 min drive to Coco beach. Many other beautiful beaches close-by. The maintenance of the complex is great: they clean the pool everyday, there is a guard at night every day. Steven is great to work with and so is the person on site- Tito. Everything they say was done and delivered as promised. You can believe the pictures you see this is exactly how the apartment and the complex look like. I would highly recommend this unit for anyone looking for a nice, calm stay in northern Guanacaste beach area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. We are glad you and your family had such a great time. From the pictures you shared it certainly seems like you also enjoyed visiting The Monkey Farm just down the road! We hope you will consider renting from us again for a future vacation. Our property manager Tito said your family were exceptional guests. You are welcome back at any time. Thank you again for staying and for the amazing review..
