About Keith Clauson
We grew up in Chicago. Keith graduated from the University of Illinois in Engineering and Maggie from DePaul Univeristy Business and Northern Illinois University in Art/Design. We live in Chicago and love Costa Rica's weather, nature, watersports and the warmth and friendliness of its people. After visiting several times, we decided to have our wedding on the beach in Costa Rica surrounded by family, friends, beautiful flowers and even the monkeys in the trees. With weather that is sunny and 82-88 degrees year round, it is the greatest escape from Chicago winters. We love water sports of swimminig, snorkeling, sailing, and watching birds, ignanas, geckos and monkeys. The local people are very friendly and love to practice their English on visitors.
Keith Clauson purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Keith Clauson chose Coco
We chose to buy this condo after touriing more than 26 locations all over the country.We love its location in the beautiful eco Pacifico community, with its gorgeous green space, local flowers, trees, and beautiful swimming pools, and proximity to national parks. There are four pools just outside the condo unit, including a whirlpool, childrens pool, activity pool, and lazy river pool. While you are in the pools, you will see and hear wild canaries, and hummingbirds as they visit the flowers that surround you. Its location is just 25 minutes from the airport, and there are direct flights from many cities. The condo is five minutes from the beaches and watersports, and there are more than 40 restaurants in the area, many you can walk to, offering all types of cuisine. The condo is less than an hour from from three national wildlife reserves, Santa Rosa, Palo Verde and Rincon de la Viejo where there is abundant north and south american birds, monkeys, iguanas. Pacifico has five pools, including an infinity pool with ocean views, lazy river pools, whirlpool, activity pool. There is a health club and spa. It is secure and quiet. There is a gourmet grocery/wine store and coffee bar within Pacifico.
What makes this Condo unique
Our furniture is locally made and hand carved from many unusual hardwoods of Costa Rica. We have decorated the condo with artwork, pottery and wood carving by local artisans. Each bed and bath are separated by the open kitchen/dining/living space. Condo has a flat screen tv, wireless network, and a computer. Also central air conditioning, in-unit washer dryer, and balcony overlooking the pool.

Great spot for exploring
Great location and very clean unit with great views one of the 4 pools and hills. Check-in was a breeze. Centrally located to grocery stores, liquor stores, and a few great fish shops. Would definitely stay there again
A Week In Paradise
The Pacifico property was totally amazing. The condo is exactly as shown in the photos but the photos do not do it justice.It was within walking distance of a lot of very nice restaurant options. We rented a car from the airport and had no issues with driving using Waze app. Keith was great to work with as he made the time to answer any questions we had prior to our arrival and his management company (Corby) was also very good too deal with. I will warn future renters that it is 40 stairs up to the unit and while i looked at it as a way to get my exercise, some people may not be able to do it. I would stay at this location and in the condo again in a heartbeat.
We highly enjoyed our stay at this property. There were 4 adults in our group and plenty of space for all. The patio overlooks the pool and has beautiful morning sun for coffee. The master ensuite is massive, and the closet had room for all our suitcases plus clothes. The beds were very comfy as well.
We contacted the property manager about a couple of minor things and received prompt and efficient responses. The kitchen was outfitted with most everything we needed. A couple things I would suggest adding to freshen things up: some new frying pans, some plastic wine glasses for the patio, and some dish cloths. We had our guests bring some dishcloths as we arrived first....there were lots of tea towels but no dishcloths for wiping up/washing dishes. The dishwasher was not working properly but we passed on that feedback to the property manager as well.
As another suggestion, I would recommend adding extra towel hooks in the bathrooms, as there is really only room to dry one bath towel on a rack. A couple hooks on the backs of each door would be a great addition for drying towels and bathing suits.
We will happily stay here again. It has a great location, albeit on the third floor so a few stairs (which I didn't mind at all....exercise to burn off the margaritas!!), overlooking the smaller, quiet pool. The grounds of Pacifico are immaculate and it is a short walk to all necessary amenities. I highly recommend this property, and this owner was very lovely to deal with....thank you for sharing your home with us, Keith!

Great vacation condo!
The property was beautiful as was the condo. Will definitely return and recommend it to my friends.
Amazing! Highly recommend!
My husband and I spent 6 nights in this gorgeous condo and had a wonderful time. The condo’s location is perfect. You can walk to the stores, restaurants, and beach. We were expecting Playas del Coco to be really crowded with tourists but it wasn’t. July was a great month to visit. We didn’t bother with a rental car until the final days of our trip. We highly recommend Keith’s condo at Pacifico!
Playas del Coco offers eco tourism and water sports, many beaches, and over 40 local restaurants, from seafood to French cuisine to American, Italian, British and local fare. Easy access to scuba diving and snorkeling, zip lining/canopy tours, sailing, deep sea fishing, horseback riding, wildlife watching, rainforest hiking, float trips and whitewater rafting. Convenient to national parks of Santa Rosa, Palo Verde, Rincon de La Viejo, and Miravalles Volcano. Day trips to Monteverde, Palo Verde. Overnight trips to Arenal volcano and Manuel Antonio National Park.
Other Activities: canopy tours, zip lining, deep sea fishing.
