Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 4 Sleeps
Only 25 minutes from Liberia Airport, this Tucanes condo is a peaceful haven from the chaotic 'outside' world. Close enough to civilization yet surrounded by paradise, this is a serene vacation spot you'll want to book again and again. Built in 2007, this two bedroom, one and a half bath condo is about 900 square feet, plus a large covered balcony looking out over Coco Bay.This unit is the closest to the pool and the only one with a private back door that leads out to the staircase up to the pool. In the early mornings, you'll want to have breakfast at the table and chairs on the balcony or just rest and rejuvenate over a steaming cup of gourmet Costa Rican coffee. We have the best view on the 4th floor, but there are 4 flights of outside stairs. The guards are friendly and willing to help carry groceries and suitcases for a tip.Minimum rental 5 nights. If you would like to stay less than 5 nights you can, but the price will be for 5 nights minimum at the rate in place for that season.

Beautiful views, very nice condo, great location!!
I stayed at this property 3/8/16-3/15/16. From the moment I messaged Susan to inquire about her property, she immediately emailed me back and was very quick to respond to all of my questions up until I departed for my first trip to costa rica.
When I arrived, I was greeted by Amy, who helps maintain & rent out the condo on behalf of Susan. Amy was great!! She was so helpful. She provided us with keys to the condo & upon entering the condo, it was spotless/very clean! 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms & a washer and dryer. The kitchen is fully stocked & has several dishes. Amy even got us a few fruits, vegetables, eggs, milk, a bag of costa rican coffee prior to our arrival (Very thoughtful!).
The condo has a large balcony with a nice table & chairs. It was nice sitting out there at night and early mornings just to listen to the monkeys & watch the sunrise. There is wifi, several cable channels but only 2 were in english. The locals and neighbors of Tucanes are sooo friendly!
The first day I was there, one of the toilets stopped working and wouldn't flush. Amy was very apologetic and had it fixed the next day. (Fortunately, wasn't a huge deal since we had a 2nd bathroom ).
I only have 1 complaint, which is that the condo had a bit of a ant problem. I killed several ants throughout my week there. They were mainly in the bathroom & kitchen. I was killing ants before I could even unpack my things. (But this was minor to me, it is costa rica & there are bugs just about anywhere you choose to stay).
There is a door in one of the bedrooms that leads to a staircase which goes to the pool. The view from the pool is absolutely beautiful. It overlooks co co beach. We were at the pool every day, it was very relaxing, it was never busy. We even seen iguanas often in the pool area.
The condo is less than a 10 min. Walk to the beach & the main street where all the restaurants & bars are. It was fun being able to walk every where we wanted to go! Also, Amy suggested to us fun activities to do and cities to visit. Amy was an amazing host!!
Overall, my experience was great and I would def. Come back & rent from Susan/Amy again. I highly recommend this place!! Thanks again Susan & Amy!!!
We just loved this place!! The view from the deck and the pool were awesome!! The condo had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Everytime we were at the condo we stayed on the deck or at the pool. We loved the wifi and the easy access to the pool. Even though the kitchen was well stocked I didn't cook. Everyone was so helpful with getting us into the condo and helping us plan our activites. We would definitely stay here again and hope to do it soon!
The condo was out of the main area of Playa del Coco, which was was nice. The view was incredible even better than the pictures. The pool was wonderful and private. We went on the sunset cruise and had a wonderful evening. We were able to easily get to Cortez falls and a couple of National Parks. Very peaceful setting. I enjoyed getting fresh squeezed orange juice from a very friendly man on a truck in town. There is a good nightlife in town but the condo is far enough away that it won't effect your sleep. Great location.
Relaxation in Paradise
Friends had told us what a fabulous time they had in Costa Rica so we decided to go for our 20th anniversary. What a beautiful country. This condo had everything we could want: ocean view, quiet and peaceful, close to the beach, clean and comfortable with all the comforts of home. That pool is the jewel of this whole area. We were up there for an early morning swim and to watch the breathtaking sunset over the ocean. My huband took a 1/2 day fishing boat and caught a 20 pound rooster fish. We highly recommend this area and this condo. It was the best anniversary ever!
From the Owner
“This condo is the only one with a back door that opens directly onto the path to the staircase up to the pool.”
