AFFORDABLE CONDO! MINUTES FROM BEACH, RESTURANTS, GOLF ETC

Papagayo Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Only 40 minutes from Liberia International Airport, La Carolina Condos are a fully gated new 8 unit condo complex located just outside the culturally rich town of Brasilito, Costa Rica.

This Condo is 1000 SF 2 bed 2 bath with premium air conditioners in each room. The master bedroom has a king bed and the 2nd bedroom a queen, both are equipped with premium mattresses and bedding. The well appointed kitchen includes slab granite counter tops, a breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances (including dishwasher) and all necessary cook ware.

Located just .5 miles from the beach and the town center of Brasilito, you can enjoy restaurants, souvenir shops, outdoor market and the quiet Brasilito beach. Just 5 minutes from Brasilito is Playa Conchal -- one of Costa Rica’s most beautiful beaches. A short 5 minute drive from La Carolina to Playa Flamingo where you can enjoy the beautiful beach as well as fine dining. Flamingo is also a marina where you can charter a boat for some of the best sport fishing in the world.

Tamarindo is just 20 minutes from La Carolina where you can find shopping, restaurants, beginner surf, and great night life. You can be to the incredible, active Arenal Volcano which has some of the best zip line tours in the country in 3.5 hours. Also 2.5 hrs to Lake Nicaragua and the oldest town in the Americas, Granada Nicaragua! Playa Grande is only 15 minutes away and has the most consistent surf in the country. Playa Grande is also home to the protected Sea Turtle nesting site. See 6' leatherbacks laying eggs in the sand on the protected beaches of Playa Grande. Or journey north to the secluded beaches of Playa Danta, Playa Penca or Playa Azucar (sugar beach).

We searched all of Costa Rica looking for a home that had a quiet and relaxing Pura Vida (Pure Life) feeling but was close to all of the exciting things to experience in Costa Rica.

Enjoy all the comforts of modern living and the beauty of the country at your convenience.

Brasilito is a sleepy little beach town with a great atmosphere. Everyone is nice, and happy to be enjoying life. You hear the phrase "pura vida" (pure life) daily.

It is also very accessible, close to many world class beaches and resturants, and very safe.

The condo is very quiet and the grounds are very nicely landscaped and maintained. It feels like home.

GREAT GET AWAY

  • 5 of 5
We found this to be just what we were looking for. We found the accommodations great- well stocked kitchen so we could dine here when wanted. We walked to the fish store and grilled our fish - or enjoy some of the fun restaurants close by.

Or a short walk to the bakery for fresh bread or sweet treats or smoothies was also a nice option for some. Having the local fresh fruit was also a highlight.

We love having the pool - a place to relax-cool off-and read our books. The beaches with the sunsets-- of course spectacular. The club at Mar Vista which is close and beautiful view- and also offering Gluten Free options.

Love it- and hope to be back to enjoy it again. Thanks for providing us a nice option- affordably and with a very pleasant place to stay!

QUIET AND PEACEFULL COMPLEX

  • 5 of 5
Stayed 2 months and loved it. You need a car for grocery shopping but the walk to the beach is not too bad. We would rent from Adobe Car rental about every 10 days for 2 or 3 days to stock up. They deliver car to you free of charge. Can not say enough good things about Elsie at Tropical Homes property management. She looked after tour bookings an everything else for us. Lacarolina is the ideal complex to relax and enjoy Costa Rica's fabulous weather.
The condo itself has pretty well everything you would want for your stay. Bed was comfortable and bathrooms were great. Kitchen could use more lighting but still very good. TV reception was blurry but mostly Spanish, so we did not watch it much. hope to stay next year again.

NOT A BAD PLACE, BUT LACKING AMENITIES, VIEW AND PRIVACY.

  • 3 of 5
My husband and I visited Costa Rica for the first time and decided to rent a private condo or villa instead of a busy hotel with tons of people around.
We searched through VRBO and found this place. The pictures looked good and there are many great reviews, so we spoke to the owner and decided to stay at this condo.

Firstly, the property management company is good at communicating via email to provide assistance. We arranged for private transfer through them from the airport, but unfortunately did not get to stop at the supermarket which was requested ahead, and paid extra for. Not the end of the world.
Upon arriving at the condo, everything was as the pictures showed, if not better. The grounds were in nice condition and the pool area, albeit small, was very nice as well.

Our internet went out two nights after we arrived, leaving us in a great lurch, as there is no phone book for local numbers of restaurants, tours, etc., and the concierge service that helps with these things are not available at all times. We were told the internet would be back up and running and it was not repaired until the day we were leaving.

The housekeeping/maid showed up and walked into our condo, waking us up - we had no idea that anyone would be coming to clean while we were there. The door lock needed fixing and after we were told that we would have notice of this repair, once again someone showed up at an inopportune time without notice, to fix our lock. Very poor communication from the property management company. The owner did as much as she could considering she is in the U.S. - which, I believe, is basically nothing.

The pool area is great as long as there are only a few people there, otherwise it is busy and not comfortable for relaxing and sunbathing. Additionally there is no view to speak of from anywhere on the condo property. If you want howler monkeys, they are not here.

We knew we were renting something that is a little out of the way, but were a little disappointed when told it was a short walk to the beach and town, because it's not really short (especially in the heat of the day) and at night it's dangerous since there are no sidewalks, only ditches, that you have to move into to avoid traffic. Not a tremendous walk, but not really close either. It was recommended to rent a car for sightseeing and checking stuff out, etc. but it was not really stated as a necessity. I would tell anyone renting here that it is absolutely a necessity shoul

GREAT PLACE AND GREAT LOCATION.

  • 4 of 5
This condo has it all. Close to great beaches, not to far from the airport, wonderful pool,secured parking, comfortable beds, washer & dryer, nice kitchen, and a wonderful maintenace man near the condos.The location was really good, but I would recommend renting a car, because there are so many places to see. There is a maid service that comes in once a week which is really nice to come home to. I loved the pool, it is small, but very clean and comfortable. There are only 8 units so the pool patio was a nice area to meet other people and just relax. In the morning you can hear the howler monkeys and in the afternoon parakeets chase each other over the pool.
Wonderful people to rent from!

GOOD VALUE

  • 4 of 5
Our stay was nice. The condo is set up with everything you need to cook and have a great stay near the beaches. The pool is a bit small however there is a nice ranch area to hang out right next to it.
Upon arrival we had to wash all of the sheets since we found them no to be up to standards (my wife found a few too many hairs while making the beds at night)
Overall the grounds and condo are well kept and we would stay here again!

Owner's Response: It was so nice to work with Jorge and his wife. We are so grateful for his feedback and have taken it very seriously. We have found a new property management company and housekeeping service. Cleanliness is a top priority for us and we do not anticipate a problem with this in the future.

YOU'LL NEVER WANT TO LEAVE...

We had an amazing vacation and stay at La Carolina. The property is very well maintained and the condo is private and nicely furnished. The wonderful owners were very accommodating to any questions we had and their description of the property is accurate. The property is very comfortable and one of the nicer places we have stayed on vacation. My wife and I greatly enjoyed the close proximity to many beaches for a day in the water or to view the beautiful sunset each night. We took advantage of snorkeling and scuba diving as much as possible. This area has some exceptional restaurants, including Mar y Sol (Flamingo Beach) a must for sunset! We look forward to bringing our friends and family to La Carolina and highly recommend this place to travelers that like to relax and enjoy la pura vida. The owners of this condo have created a very comfortable setting and they have furnished and care for the place like it is their own home. Thank you!
