                                                                      Lisa A.

                                                                      My family and I stayed at Gary's condo on Potrero beach and we all enjoyed the stay. The views are wonderful, the pool and garden areas are just what we needed and the location is perfect to not have the tourist feel, yet have nearby conveniences.

                                                                      The condo is well equipped with bath towels, blankets, sheets and beach towels. The condo is ideal for 4 people but we had 6 comfortably (a child on the sofa bed and an adult on an inflatable full mattress).

                                                                      The best: views, wonderful balcony, AC when needed (although the breeze is great), great grill, pool and garden area.

                                                                      Could be better: the cooking supplies in the kitchen could be improved. The lighting in the second bedroom needs improvement as well.

                                                                      Overall, we loved our stay and will definitely look forward to staying here again.

                                                                      Bonus: Gary was available if needed and all the other renters during our stay were extremely enjoyable.

                                                                      Thank you Gary and Endless Beach Condo!

                                                                      Kim C.Bolivar, OH

                                                                      We loved our stay at Endless Beach Condo. The location allows you to walk to several restaurants and the grocery store. So nice to be able to do that in the evening instead of driving. The fruit market is directly behind the condo for easy fruit and veggie shopping. If internet service is important, make sure you check to see how it is working. When we were there it didn't always work and when it did, it was slow. Along with the internet, a couple of minor things that keep this condo from being a solid 5 star rating, were the lack of some general maintenance. The safe and the fans in the main room didn't work and the air conditioning in the main room barely blew out any cool air. We didn't know about the air until the last day when we turned it on while we were packing. A lot of the people that were staying at the condo complex were return visitors for the past several years. They were all welcoming and a good source of information. Everything was clean and the kitchen was supplied with an ample variety of pans, dishes and glassware. Overall a nice spot to spend vacation time. Costa Rica is amazing and we will be back!

                                                                      Thank you, Kim, for your helpful feedback. I am now in Surfside and I have already remedied most of the deficiencies you pointed out.

                                                                      I inspected the condo personally in early December and everything worked.normally.

                                                                      Unfortunately, the guests we had in the post-Christmas week left a number of things in poor condition, including the fans, which have now been repaired. The AC also works normally.

                                                                      The internet is more difficult, as we are at the mercy of the providers. Our routers are quite robust, but there are occasional dropouts from the provider. A fact of life here, which we hope will improve in time.

                                                                      I hope that you can come back soon, and when you do, you will see that the deficencies you pointed out have all been addressed.

                                                                      Condo

                                                                      Darrell C.

                                                                      The location on the beach was wonderful as was the yard. spa and pool.

                                                                      The maintenance of the inside of condo is lacking, needs a complete refurbishing,

                                                                      from formica, drapes,bedspreads, towels, large cooking pans, fans. dresser.

                                                                      {only one house cleaning in two weeks} chairs on patio need to be replaced.

                                                                      Laundry room needs a good cleaning.

                                                                      At our age we won't be returning to Costa Rica, but recommend this location, as it was the best walking beach we have ever been on. Darrell & Dona

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Dear Darrell:

                                                                      Thank you very much for your helpful feedback.

                                                                      I am very pleased that you and Dona enjoyed your time in Costa Rica on our beautiful Potrero beach. Our location is indeed wonderful.

                                                                      I apologize that not everything was to your liking in the condo. I am aware already of some of the points you raise, and I thank you for pointing out others. I will be remedying them when I come there in a couple of weeks. I will report back on this later this month.

                                                                      Our cleaning regimen is normally twice a week. Our regular lady has been in poor health and unavailable for a couple of months now, and we have had to find substitutes at short notice. Happily, I learned yesterday that our regular lady, who is excellent, will be rejoining the team again right away, so this will no longer be an issue.

                                                                      The laundry room, which is part of the common area, is scheduled for paint and revamp shortly. Of course it is cleaned regularly as part of the normal regimen, which will be starting again right away.

                                                                      Again, thank you for your constructive comments. I am very glad you could share and enjoy our lovely place for a couple of weeks.

                                                                      March 11: I have been in Surfside for several days and I have already remedied much of what you found lacking. We now nave new bed linens and towels and all the fans and AC work properly. Our regular maid is back and will be resuming her twice-weekly schedule.

                                                                      Relaxing setting

                                                                      Stephen K.

                                                                      Had a wonderfully relaxing time enjoying listening to the waves and watching the sunset each day of our stay.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Thanks very much, Stephen and Elizabeth. I hope you can return soon!

                                                                      Queit and pristine beach, a lot of good restaurants around

                                                                      Petr I.Cambridge, MA, USA

                                                                      Nice condo in the middle of Potrero beach. Great owner, whcih can give you a good advice about all the neighborhood joints. Very peaceful. We enjoyed it a lot

                                                                      Great location, clean and spacious condo.

                                                                      Edward S.

                                                                      The condo is clean and very convenient. The property is very quiet, and the other condo guests were all pleasant. The staff keep the grounds and building clean. Nice restaurants are within walking distance, and the next door fruit market is great.

                                                                      The master bedroom was very comfortable. The ceiling fans and ventilation were good enough that we did not need the air conditioner in the mornings and evening.

                                                                      The HomeAway description says "newly updated" but that is not the case. We found the full couch to be too uncomfortable to sit in. The love seat was OK. The kitchen supplies are adequate for a couple, but a larger group might have trouble with plates and glasses. There are signs of wear: the formica in the kitchen and baseboards in the bathroom are in need of updating.

                                                                      Gary is a very helpful owner, his directions and web site were very useful as we planned. We did not find the on-site manager to that helpful. Be sure you ask about the wifi password and cleaning days when you checkin.

                                                                      We liked the sailing center nearby for hanging out and we took a sailing lesson. As Gary's directions state, do not take the monkey trail unless you have a 4 wheel drive! Google directions want to take you there from the Liberia airport. There is a newish gas station between Huecas and Tamarindo which was not on Gary's notes.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      Thanks for your helpful comments, Edward.

                                                                      The problem with the couch, a convertible sofa bed, turned out to be that someone (a previous guest?) had very helpfully stolen the mattress! Without it folded inside, there was no seat support. Of course we have replaced it and the couch is now fine.

                                                                      The dishes and cutlery had also been subject to "shrinkage", and have been fully replenished.
