The villa was great and complex was great as well.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was in great shape - well equipped and AC worked. We only used the 2 bedrooms, not the sofa bed, and they were both comfortable. We enjoyed the mini-golf and went to a movie. The pool was not huge, but large enough. Though the complex is not new we found it to be well kept. Balcony had beautiful views. We were very comfortable and felt very safe. It is only a few minutes away from restaurants & a good supermarket.

The owners responded very quickly to all our questions and we definitely enjoyed our stay and will go back.

Outstanding Home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Costa Rica was outstanding. A huge part of our enjoyment was knowing we were returning to a well-kept private home to relax and unwind. The Villa met our expectations from cleanliness to furniture comfort. We would definitely stay here again and have already told friends to inquire if they plan to visit the area. Thank you Russell for providing a home away from home.

Very happy to have view of the ocean from the deck

  • 5 of 5

This was a great location for a first trip to Costa Rica. We were happy to have the use of a pool in the complex. We were very glad to be in walking distance of a store and the beach with varied restaurants closeby so we did not have to rent a car-used taxi's for longer distances. Would recommend a stay here. Russ was easy to work with and answered all our questions ahead of time. This villa met our needs well.

Owner's Response: Sandy: I am very glad that your group enjoyed your visit to my community and that my villa satisfied your expectations. My property manager and I do our best to ensure that your needs and expectations are met. The view from our deck is nice and it is a convenience to have a grocery store just down the street that provides what is needed during a visit. Thanks for visiting. Regards, Russ

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I am so grateful to Russell and his beautiful Villa - it was the ideal spot for my family's first visit to Costa Rica and we would stay there again in a second. From our initial contact it was obvious that Russell cares about his property, the experiences of his guests and is a person of high integrity.

The Villa far surpassed our expectations in terms of convenience, comfort, location and beauty. Russ has stocked the villa with everything you could possibly need (we especially appreciated the beach chairs and cooler for longer drives). He is so open to feedback and with the help of Corby ensure your stay is wonderful. Although we do recommend renting a car everything is nearby (15min walk to beach, 10min walk to excellent little store and meat market, 10min to excellent tour company, 10 min to Coco).

Some our favourite hours were spent on the beautiful deck drinking in the gorgeous view, admiring the wildlife and just hanging out.

Thank you Russ and Corby!

Russ is very prompt in returning emails. He even called us to talk to us about his condo. I would highly recommend renting this condo. You could stay hear without a car but a car would be very useful for families with young children, little legs get tired quick. The condo has an awsome view of the ocean. I miss sitting on the deck in the morning drinking a cup of Costa Rican coffee. The furniture and beds are all very comfortable and the condo is fully equipped with everything a person needs. We rented a car as paying for transportation can get pricey and you get to see more of Costa Rica this way. When we come back to Costa Rica we will be in touch with Russ. Russ's property manager Corby is great. She got us into the condo quickly and gave us a information package which is very helpful.

Thanks Russ

Everyone misses your condo and Costa Rica
