We arrived at the VRBO property late on April 9 and were impressed upon opening the front door. The size of the condo was perfect for our family and the simple yet attractive decor made it feel comfy immediately. The only thing that would have been appreciated was if the AC had been on for our arrival as the temperature was 89 degrees in the condo when we got there. We quickly turned it on and went for dinner hoping that it would be cooled down enough to sleep. It was much cooler by the time we got back.
The location of this condo is perfect in our opinion. It has a wonderful patio that is very comfortable to watch the sun set, the pool and to simply enjoy a glass of wine and enjoy the warmth of Costa Rica! The condo boasts very comfortable beds with decent linens. The Beach towels are in desperate need of replacement but the bathroom linens are of good quality.
There are a few things to note for others who wish to rent this condo, be prepared to buy many simple household items such as hand soap (there were none upon our arrival), simply cleaning items (I needed to buy a large container of Lysol wipes as the entire kitchen needed wiping down including all the cabinets and the kitchen floors needed wiping), dish soap, toilet paper (two rolls are provided). We had no broom or mop to to keep the floors clean but once I asked the wonderful facility manager for these two items he promptly brought me a broom and mop to clean the floors with. As well there were no garbage bags and he quickly brought me those as well. Also as previously noted from other reviews, there is a potent smell that does assault your senses in the kitchen and washer/dryer area throughtout the day but it does disipate over time.
The layout of the condo is very comfortable and the air conditioning works great! I would not hesitate to rent this VRBO again but would request some of the above mentioned items to be in the condo so that I could keep the condo in good shape for the owners. We have loved our stay here and will hold nothing but fond memories of this beautiful location!
