PLAYA CONCHA, OCEAN VIEW CONDO IN BEAUTIFUL TROPICAL SETTINGIN GATED COMUNITY

Playa Conchal Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6, fully equipped kitchen, satellite tv

Paradise found! We live on site there are 18 gorgeous ocean view condos. The only thing we can offer more than anyone else is ourselves and the services we can provide. The fact that we have experience and knowledge of where to go and what to do as well as what not to do is important. The condo and location are perfect for vacationers that want peace and security where they live, but be within easy reach of Tamirindo or Flamingo, and Playa Grande. We have 5 of the most Beautiful Beaches in Costa Rica, for Swimming, Snorkeling, Surfing, Hijacking, Fishing, Horse Back Tours, ATV Tours, Jet Sky in the Ocean and much more. My wife and I walk the beach to Playa Conchal or one of the Trails that offer picturesque ocean views almost every day. This area is known as the Gold Coast because of the exceptional beaches and climate. In the mornings you drink the best coffee and be able to see humming birds doing aerobatics within as few feet. We have many write up on Trip Adviser under Condor Heigh

Golf courses are near by: Please check us out on Trip Adviser under Condor Heights to find out what other people have found here, and how they enjoyed their vacation. We have surf boards available and we offer a Kayak tour like no other for those who have that adventure spirit, and the ocean is calm. A cell phone is included with your condo rental. There is only one time of year that we think is not good for a vacation and that is late September through October or early November. The best time is Late November and December and June through August, although December through May is also excellent. We have found many wonderful and beautiful things here and are willing to share those adventures and places with you. There is so much more then the Hotel property to see and do. Costa Rica is a special place come and see for yourself.

Surfing: Most surfers go to Tamarindo or Playa Grande thinking it is the best place and sometimes the surf is good but there are many other not so well known breaks that offer exceptional surf with out the big crowds. With every break here the tide, wind and weather do effect the waves a great deal. If you are a new surfer there are places where the waves are gentler. The experience of surfing a great wave with no one else around for hours at a time because you have knowledge and access others do not.

Fishing: A all day fishing charter can be $700 to $1200 with no guarantee of catching a big fish. We will help you contact a guide for kayak fishing that is a fantastic experience. We catch hard fighting Rooster Fish, Jacks, Snook, and more and these can be as large as 50 pounds and more. Catching a large fighting fish in a Kayak is something special, and our guide is very professional providing all the equipment. If you like fishing this might be the way to go.

We moved to Costa Rica in 2005. We bought the condo because of the unique location and the wonderful view of the Pacific Ocean, Flamingo and the Bay. We spent seven wonderful years exploring and adventuring. We love the peace and tranquility we found where we lived. We were close enough to the cities of Tamarind and, Flamingo to be able to get there easily but we did also have the enjoyment of being able to find pristeen beaches without a crowd of people very close to our home. We seldom went out to eat since we had a great kitchen in the condo and we enjoyed cooking our own fresh fish. I lost weight and became very fit by surfing, walking the beaches and mountains around us every day. We see monkies and other wildlife as we went about our life. There is a saying that we found to be true, Pura Vida, the pure life.

John/Linda

Linda or John Gebauer purchased this condo in 2007

This was our home and it was and is special because of its location, not in the city but close. The Costa Rica we dream about not the all inclusive resorts, or the surfer towns. The view the wild life and the ability to get away from all the stress of work with the modern convienences we all need.

The uniqueness of this property is its beauity, closeness to the great beaches, and the privacy if you so desire. You can go anywhere or do anything without traveling very far. Nature abounds, we have seen foxes, several large cats, deer, monkies, turtles, pesoti, and whales, and much more right near our condo.

AMAZING VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We spent the week in this condo and from the moment we got there we knew it would be a great stay. John (the owner) greeted us in town and made sure we found our way. His wife Linda greeted us at the door armed with a warm smile and lots of information about what to do in the area. The condo itself is beautiful and cozy with a fantastic view of the beach. The kitchen is fully stocked, has clean drinking water, and Linda even provided us with organic costa rican coffee. There are at least 4 different beaches in the immediate vicintity each offering a unique experience. Great snorkeling, egg laying giant sea turtles, fishing (we caught so many we had to give some away), and horse back riding. We enjoyed all of these immensley. Most importantly, John and Linda were ever gracious hosts and available at any time to answer questions and give advice. They even gave us a cell phone to use! Overall it was a fantastic vacation and we can't recommend it enough. Much better than any hotel in the area!

GREAT CONDO, CLOSE TO GREAT BEACHES, GREAT HOSTS!

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed John and Linda's rental condo just last week.

Condo - The condo itself is extremely comfortable and I felt that it was a good value. The beds, the furnishings, the decor, all great. It was a nice treat to have AC at the beach too, not something that you find everywhere in Costa Rica. We prepared most of our meals at the condo and the kitchen had everything we needed and more. We found one item that we would have liked to have, asked John and Linda about it and the next day they brought it to us! There is cable TV, wireless internet, lovely patio furniture to enjoy the great view, even a grill, blankets, beach towels....The hosts were also very generous with toiletries, laundry soap, etc. They even supplied bottle water,

Area - The condos are a little off the beaten path and I can't imagine you could enjoy a stay here without a car. We didn't have a 4x4 though and managed fine. The condo is about a 10 min walk to playa conchal (lovely) but we drove anyway just to be able to take beach toys, mats, snacks, water, etc. We explored a different beach each day. Most were pretty much deserted and very lovely. You have a lot of beaches within 10 minutes. This is definitely not an area filled with parties, action and activity. But if you want to relax and enjoy rural Costa Rica, it's perfect! That said, there is a grocery store about 10-15 min from the condo and you can get what you need there or better, bring it from San Jose. We saw howler monkies along the road and heard them daily. We only went out to eat once so I can't really speak to the restaurants in the area.

Hosts - John and Linda really were kind and helpful. They can offer you as much or as little information about the area as needed. They have lived there for 6 years and really know a lot. They treated all of us very kindly and we truly appreciated it. We felt like guests more than customers. My only real suggestion is that leaving a book with some of their knowledge, maps, suggestions would be a great benefit to the condo.

I am happy to answer specific questions from a renter/tourist perspective if you have any: nicoleLcurtis@hotmail.com

Owner's Response: We have been blessed with many great renters which makes our job so easy. We are glad to receive advice from our guests which help us make the condo more inviting for future renters. This is a place to decelerate from a busy lifestyle and we love to see the relaxed faces on our guests' faces after they are here a few days. Pura Vida, Linda/John Gebauer

THE PERFECT HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 5 of 5
Playa Conchal Vacation Rental is the perfect get away. There is plenty offered from hikes in the mountains to a multitude of beaches to lounge at. The only downfall of our trip is that John and Linda had to leave us early on. They are full of knowledge about what beaches to visit and where to hike to get the best views. They are extremely welcoming and maintain their rental condo as to keep it clean and beautifully furnished. There is a cleaning crew that comes in once a week but visitors should be prepared to buy a few necessities such as laundry detergent, garbage bags and the basic items found in ones cupboards. This condo is an excellent choice for young couples, families or retirees. Dont miss out on such a GREAT opportunity!

BEST PLACE WE EVER VISITED

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful place in a paradaise. It is very peaceful and surrounded by beautiful nature. Our hosts John and Linda helped us with everything, which was very useful due to our lack of Spanish. One week was obviously not enough to enjoy every aspect of Costa Rica. We will most definetly return! Thank you John and Linda for a wonderful experience.

GREAT FAMILY VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this property for 10 days (July/Aug 2010), and enjoyed every moment. John and Linda were excellent hosts, and were able to provide lots of great information on local tours, beaches, and sites. We wanted to take part in local life, so John and Linda directed us to their favorite sodas, shops, places to catch soccer, etc which really added to our experience. Since I love to cook, John even had the local fish truck stop by the condo so I could purchase incredibly fresh fish and shrimp to cook in our kitchen - a real treat for us!

The condo is very clean, well-equipped and comfortable. Comfortable beds, quiet and secure setting, stocked with plenty of linens and utensils. The grounds were very pretty, with lots of birds and flowers. The balcony had a great view of Playa Conchal, and great beaches were just minutes away, and we usually had them to ourselves. There is convenient shopping, restaraunts, fuel, ATMs nearby.

Notes:
Adventures, Family, Fishermen, and Surfers, living here for many years we have discovered the many pleasures of this location. The Condo and setting are beautiful, but the surrounding. We fish. walk beautiful beaches and mountain trails, I surf, we snorkel near by, and just swim in the warm Pacific all year long. The area and what you can do is so much more this unit is suitable for elderly, my 86 year old mother and her 2 sisters had a great time, and no problems. The water is drinkable and tested yearly. This is a great family vacation. This is a modern condo located between 2 big tourist destinations, Tamarindo and Flamingo and the next door property is Paridisus Conchal .The area is safe, without many tourists on the near by beaches. I have no allergies in Costa Rica, We live on-site and are available to help with the best places to go and the many adventures available, from seeing turtles, monkeys, surfing, snorkeling, fishing and other destinations. Smoking is OK outside.
