What makes this condo unique

It's just like our home in the USA my wife has furnished with everything to create a great home feeling for us and our visitors. It's very relaxing and peaceful close to town and stores.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The Villa really surprised me! From the featherbed to thick bath towels. It was just like being at home. Nice and relaxing with the pools and hot tub, even a hammock out back! Everything was close by, the beach, restaurants(check out the Four Seasons pizza at La Dolce Vita), internet cafe and Italian ice cream!Great bargains on gifts downtown and a bakery! Plan to come back soon!

super location, fully equiped

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Playa deL Coco! The condo was very well equipped, like if you were home. Great kitchen with everything you need to cook if you feel like it. Otherwise, it is close to town, a mere 2$ for taxi. The beach is a 5 min walk, groceries, stores likewise.

Nice pools, we were facing one of the two pools, very refreshing after a long day at the beach! No hesitation to recommend this place at all

Great Vacation

  • 4 of 5

The weather was perfect, the place was great, the neighbors were wonderful, the dining table by the pool made every meal enjoyable. The only thing that left a bad feeling was the person in charge of watching over the place. Every day he entered the property for some reason, went over a long list of rules to obey and when we were leaving blamed us for things that were like that when we arrived. Felt like our mother was watching all the time.

Owner's Response: Thank you John for your comments I was unaware that my property manager was being so vigilant, I will speak to him about this because that's not how I want any of my guests to feel my sincere apologies. Kip

One Month Stay was Glorious!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was colorful, beautifully furnished with numerous kitchen gadgets, auto ice dispenser, air conditioner in each room, plenty of beach towels, a helpful property manager and friendly neighbors!

The walk is more than 4 minutes but is pleasant. Coco tours is a 4 minute walk down the street to arrange excursions and arrange pick up to and from the airport for $35.00 in a van! On site gym was fabulous. Must stay more than a week to savor the country. We stayed the month! Owner was extremely helpful to supply info prior to visit. The two on site pools are immaculate and the grounds pristine with daily attendants and a pleasant night guard. I would highly recommend this condo but try to stay more than a week. It was 83 degrees at 8 AM reaching the 90's by 11:00 am each day. Always a breeze from the ocean. Never had the need to use AC in bedroom with the large screen window and ceiling fan. Waking to the sound of the howler monkey at 5:15 ish am and the tropical birds was appealing at best.

Be sure to bring your bug spray, sun screen, debit card and lots of cash. Plan to walk to the farmers market to purchase fresh fruits an vegetables on Ocotel Road: fabulous prices and variety. Sun dresses are a must and can be bought in town for $15-20. Nights are warm in feb. so bring light clothing. We went fishing for the day and I caught a 30 pound maui Maui and 25 pound jack revel. One man reeled in a 250 pound blue marlin.

Tropical paradise with all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a condo community with a great international mix of residents. We got to know a few of the neighbors who were helpful and kind when we had a bit of health trouble. The condo itself is lovely, the rooms are comfortable and nicely decorated, and the ceiling fans and AC make the outside heat a non-issue when indoors. The kitchen has everything a person could need.

We contributed to the beach chair collection at the end of our stay; you'll also find fishing rods and snorkeling gear.

We hope to return here often!
