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 Costa Rica

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 whirlpoos, childrens pool, activity pool, and lazy river poo. 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.

Everything was just the way it is shown and explained here. the condo was in excellent shape and close to town and where we needed to go--diving. Thanks to Alex for greeting us and helping out. My family loved the inside and also the layout of the condos. Everything needed was furnished. This place was true to form. We are already planning on coming back about the same time next summer and we will definitely contact Keith. Again thank you for letting us enjoy such a wonderful place. Next time we will utilize the club more often.

Return to paradise to share with two more of our friends from Alabama

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed at several condo's at Pacifico and have loved it each time, however, I must say this was the best one because of the little things. The check in and out was easy and the managers were extremely pleasant to work with. The extra little things were having salt, pepper, garlic and foil and plastic wrap in the cabinets and available. It was like being at home. I came prepared with those items because we do not usually find them so it was a pleasant surprise. The condo was clean and comfortable. While we do not watch a lot of TV, the TV in the living room is small for a large room. I would recommend this condo but more importantly we will be back to this condo.

The condo is well maintained and has all the comforts of home.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a very relaxing 7 nights in this 2 bedroom condo. Be prepared to be woken up by the birds or possible monkeys in the morning, this was a constant reminder that we were in a tropical environment. I felt very safe within the confines of the property. Although we didn't use the club house or swim while on the property all these amenities were accessible. We enjoyed local restaurants as well as prepared food in the well equipped kitchen. The grocery stores near Pacifio are comparable to US prices, sometimes it was cheaper to eat out than cook. Overall I give my experience at Pacifio a 4.5/5!

Keith Clauson’s Playa del Coco vacation home

  • 4 of 5

It is a great property well maintained, clean and a good location. It has a local phone available for locals calls.

We went to the "Beach club" for one day and it was not worth it. They charged 25.00 per person just to get in. After we spent old day and had lunch and drinks they still charged extra for the beach chairs. We decided not to go back to the "Beach Club" and we went to Conchal and Hermosa Beach. There is a lot of good beaches in the Guanacoste Area.

Pacifico Beach Condo is one of the nicest properties in Playas del Coco.

  • 5 of 5

The listing was as it said it would be. The property was clean and well taken care of. There is security at the gate. Although, we never felt unsafe in and around this town. The owner provided excellent service. There was someone to meet us with the keys, instructions, and a phone number in case there was a problem. I would highly recommend this property for anyone wanting to stay in Playas Del Coco. The restaurants have fresh seafood everyday at reasonable costs. There is a terrific Dive Center for SCUBA and snorkeling enthusiasts. Rocket Frog Divers. There are tours available to the mountain regions, zip lining, white water rafting, beaches, ATVs and much more.

Great facility, would definitely return for future vacation, condominium was excellent!

  • 5 of 5

The condominium complex was well maintained, beautifully manicured grounds, pools were equipped with comfortable loungers. The pool snack bar served excellent food and drinks, reasonably priced. The Clauson's condo was spacious and had everything you might need. Kitchen had all amenities. Beautiful balcony overlooking pool and grounds. Condo is on third floor but this meant no condo above so no sounds of people walking on ceramic. Also important for keeping fit to be able to walk up stairs. Other owners and renters around pool very friendly and welcoming. Overall this is a first class, five star facility. Playa Del Cico is a delightful small town. Discovered fresh fish market in town, enjoyed tuna, red snapper and mahi mahi. Restaurants and bars are excellent. Great live music. The Beach Club is excellent as is the restaurant. Spent a number of very relaxing days there. There is much to do in the area, beaches, river expeditions, Arenal Volcano and Monteverde. The roads are much improved from our previous trip 6 years ago. We will definitely be returning to Costa Rica and Pacifico in the future. Keith Clauson is a true gentleman and he ensured through his management company everything was perfect for our stay.
