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!!!
