Guestbook comments from the owner

This clean and comfortable condo is close to restaurants and activities, including snorkeling, scuba diving and fishing. It's perfect for a family or two couples, with two bedrooms with private bathrooms, and a full kitchen. The resort has several swimming pools and it's just a short walk to a beautiful beach for wandering and beach-combing. On our lazy days, we enjoyed the colorful birds all around the resort and walked on trails in the nearby area. Beautiful countryside nearby, which is fun to explore if you rent a car. We even went to the arenal Volcano, where we stayed overnight and soaked in the hot springs. Our stay was a retirement gift for my husband, so I can't speak knowledgeably about the "value," but the vacation was wonderful.

An Oasis in the dusty flatlands of Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5
The grounds are beautifully kept. There was plenty of sunshine and the pools are the perfect temperature. If you like isolation, peace and quiet, this is your vacation.

Fantastic vacation in Guanacaste

  • 5 of 5
It was an amazing vacation. The condo is simply fantastic, with great ocean views and incredible sound of waves just from the beds. The staff at the Sanctuary were very friendly, they helped us in every detail we ask for, they were always available. We visited about 10 spectacular beaches, and there are a lot more to visit next time. We had the luck to view the turtles laying eggs and accompanied them in their way back to the sea, we also met fantastic people from Canada and Costa Rica. We also enjoyed the installations of the Hotel witch is right next to the condos. There are so many restaurants in the area, and with a 4x4 you can go trough some rivers in the way to other beaches. In summary, my family and I recommend this place.

Chillaxing in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5
The condo had everything one might want for a serene tropical vacation. Located a short distance from the ocean it was located on a well groomed property including 2 swimming pools and a myriad of colorful butterflies. We found the condo both well maintained and clean with a delightful outdoor balcony. The condo staff Jen and Leah were friendly and most helpful.
Nearby on sporty dirt roads were all sorts of attractions for the active vacationer including surfing, SCUBA, snorkeling, swimming and fishing.. plus wonderful beaches with refreshments of all kinds. A wellness theme infused many of the destinations including some remarkable restaurants run by entrepreneurial foodies There were plenty of tranquil experiences available for the less aerobic.
This is not Cancun..Its appeal is to the tropical adventurer eager to find a spot unspoiled by overbuilding and commercialism. For those seeking that type of experience comparisons to the Garden of Eden are not out of order..

Relaxing, beautiful, exciting -- truly Pura Vida!

  • 5 of 5
Amazing stay, wish we'd stayed the whole week! Condo was larger than expected, plenty space for my husband, me (33 wks pregnant), mom-in-law & 2 active boys (7 & 8). Kitchen has essential dishes/appliances, we stopped at grocery in Santa Cruz to stock up on drinks, snacks, breakfast/lunch food; later we went to a more local grocery. Sipping coffee on the condo porch to the view and sound of the ocean & birds and walking along the beach was simply relaxing, my boys enjoyed the two pristine condo pools & playing in the waves/rocks at Playa Azul-waves too strong for swimming, we stayed at knee depth (waist depth with wave), but warm waves perfect for playing & body surfing in the morning before hide tide & with morning shade from a hill (the dark sand beach heats up). We explored 2 beaches in San Juanillo, beautiful white sand and more tranquil water at 1. The solitude was a treat, we often had the beach/pool to ourselves, or maybe shared with 1 or 2 people. Easy walk to both from condo. One morning, we saw dolphins/sea life playing in the distance. On a night beach stroll, my husband & I saw delightful hermit crabs skittering in beautiful shells; smaller ones poked in & out of holes by day. The boys enjoyed watching iguanas wander around the grounds & monkeys playing in the trees. The highlight was a boat tour with Paski's Adventures -- Mike took us on a fishing boat to see turtles, swim with a turtle and then to spot wild life. We saw a couple mantas jump out of the water & enjoyed a beautiful cruise along the coast. A simple but very informative tour, not commercialized, perfect. Carol (owner) and Jennifer & Leah (property managers) sent us great, detailed instructions from the airport in Liberia & prepped us for the last stretch (~25 km of unpaved road). Our larger 4x4 SUV rental made for a smoother ride, though still pretty bumpy. Bridges over all rivers/creeks. We checked the route via Google maps (satellite view) beforehand, helpful to know lay of land, signs mark direction to towns & beaches, not road names. Car was handy for local trips to restaurants & beaches, and drive ok once we got used to road signs/markings. Property managers gave us sketched maps with local venues of interest; their suggestions for restaurants were spot on, we had enjoyable, delicious dinners at Tiki Hut-Marbella (on beach at sunset) & place in San Juanillo. A++ for customer service, very accommodating! I highly recommend for raw nature, tranquility, relaxation, PURA VIDA!

Surfers Paradise

  • 5 of 5
There is really nothing to dislike about The Sanctuary condos. They are spacious, luxurious, have satellite tv, full kitchen, two full baths, swimming pool, and are beyond comfortable. We have stayed in them for our winter getaways from New Jersey for years now. From a surfers standpoint they are probably way above what most surfers are used to. There has been four of us in the condo every year. My wife, son, brother and myself, and we have always been really happy. The surfing area is only 10 mins away and there are also numerous other breaks within a one or two hour drive making it nice variety wise.

Was the listing description accurate regarding the location, layout, amenities, etc?
Absolutely! Exactly as described.

Was the property clean, was it well-maintained, etc?
These units are IMMACULATE! The cleaning staff and maintenance crew are really meticulous!

Did the owner provide good customer service?
No doubt. They were really nice and answered all our questions quickly.

Would you recommend this property to a friend or relative?
Would and did!

What activities, attractions and restaurants did you like or dislike?
There are numerous tours, activities, and restaurants to check out in the Guanacaste region of Costa Rica. The office at the condos have great staff to help w/whatever you are interested in doing. We've done sooo much over the years. Volcano tours, sunset cruises, zip lines, monkey park zoo, river tours, quad rentals, scooter rentals, horseback riding, turtle watching, surfboard and SUP rentals, and great restaurants have all been enjoyed.

Playa Azul get way

  • 4 of 5
The condo met all of our expectations. The product managers Leiha and Jen were fabulous. Our evening trip to the trip to the Tree Top was the highlight of our trip. While there we also went fishing with Captain Mike as well as the swimming with the sea turtles evening cruise. The only negative are the roads. It can be a little nerve racking to get to some of the locations we visited. 4 wheel drive is a must. Next December the adjoining resort is scheduled to re-open and that will be an added bonus although the two pools near the condo were well maintained and provided us with a nice un-crowded place to relax.
