Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I spent the last two weeks of May at the Nicholson's gorgeous condo. The condo was not only beautiful, but very comfortable and well equipped. Reserva Conchal and The Westin share this resort property and provide numerous options for pools and restaurants as well as a fantastic golf course which my husband loved! We especially enjoyed spending time at Conchal Beach. Daphne's recommendations for local restaurants and excursions were excellent and definitely made our trip extra special! We had an amazing trip and hope to return!

We spent two wonderful weeks in August 2006 at the Nicholson's condo in Playa Conchal, Costa Rica. The condo is wonderfully appointed and easily accommodated the five of us. We enjoyed watching the golfers, wildlife and fabulous sunsets from the front patio. Nature's light and sound shows were particularly vibrant at this time of the year, and we thoroughly enjoyed the displays! The amenities offered at the Paradisus Playa Conchal Resort were most accessible and enjoyable. A great time was had by all!

Excellent Value and a Wonderful Host

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I - along with two other couples - traveled to Costa Rica to attend a wedding. The wedding was actually at the Westin (in Reserva Conchal), but due to the high expense of the Westin, we rented this condo through Daphne as a more economical solution. The condo was absolutely perfect for what we needed! Reserva Conchal is located around 1 hour from the Liberia airport, and we had no problems whatsoever getting into the condo. The condo itself was great: 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a lovely patio, and a well sized kitchen. We were able to go to a supermarket in Brasilito to pick up some groceries and cooked for ourselves a few nights. We also went to Playa Flamingo for dinner one night, which was a quick cab ride away. Daphne's excellent binder of information provided us the number of a few cab companies that were dramatically cheaper than the Reserva Conchal shuttles. Because it was the off season we had the condo pool all to ourselves. Maybe one day we overlapped with a group by 10 minutes, but the infinity pool was incredible, and we constantly saw iguanas and other lizards sunning nearby. Prior to our trip I must have asked Daphne 20 different questions, and every time she was helpful in her response, providing us with many different documents explaining nearby attractions, restaurants, etc. If we were ever to return, I would highly recommend!

We will come back!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very clean and comfortable, the resort was secure and beautiful --everything as represented. The owners (the Nicholsons) were delightful to deal with, attentive, responsive, and genuinely interested that my family enjoyed our trip and had all the resources and contacts we desired to experience Costa Rica. Each referral/recommendation from the owner was top notch, gave great service, and was reasonably priced. When Daphne tells you not to miss Loco Coco for sunset dinner -- believe her! (and don't leave without ordering their homemade coconut ice-cream ... to die for).

We crammed all we could into 9 days (two volanoes/rain forests, swam in cool volcanic blue waters as well as natural hot springs, learned to surf, went fishing (you HAVE too see the coast line from the sea -- get on ANY boat -- so beautiful), snorkeled, ate at many of the local sodas (small open-air restaurants) -- and threw in a couple lazy beach/pool days to recharge in between). The Costa Rican people are warm and friendly. The country is so unique in so many ways. We spent most of our time exploring that which was uniquely Costa Rican, and we've determined that 9 days and one visit just isn't enough. We will be back --and next time with friends!

I've never met the Nicholsons, but their constant communication, attention to detail, and genuine interest in my family's experience makes them feel like old friends. We will refer our friends, family and neighbors to them without reservation; it is refreshing to deal with such good-hearted and honorable people. Pura Vida! ;-)

Great condo on a wonderful property.

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at this condo! Very clean and well maintained. Lots of room and well equipped. Great location on the grounds of the Westin complex. We especially enjoyed the beach club facilities and the close proximity to the beautiful Playa Conchal beach! Daphne was great to work with because she was very responsive and followed up on everything. She gave us great references for our stay in Costa Rico. I would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful, Safe and Clean Condo

  • 5 of 5

A great condo affording the security and amenities of the Royal Conchal Resort, but with the freedom and privacy of having your own place. The condo is very well equipped, very clean and very comfortable. A great location (close to the airport) and not far from many amazing beaches, restaurants and local attractions. We'd return in a heartbeat!

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights at Jim and Daphne's condo. The condo was beautiful and perfect for our family. Very spacious, clean and beautifuly decorated. The beds were so comfortable. Amazing view. We loved spending time at the infinity pool. The beach club was gorgeous and we also spent time over at the Westin pool playing water volleyball. We enjoyed seeing the howler monkeys everyday. Everyone was so friendly. We rented ATV's outside of the Westin with Erik. We went to Palo Verde National Park. We saw macaws, crocs, herons, tons of wildlife and the white faced monkeys ate out of our hands. We did spend 2 days at Arenal. We did Sky Trek (zip lining) and it was amazing!!! Also, did the Hanging Bridges. We ate at Carlos y Carlos, Happy Snapper, IL Forno and El Coconut. Happy with every meal. Enjoyed having lunch at the "sodas'. It was a great vacation and thank you Daphne!!! Our boys enjoyed every minute of Costa Rica.
