Beautiful and well maintained!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family of 7 stay at Casablanca on June 11-18, 2016. The property grounds were lovely and very clean. It was comforting to have a security guard on the grounds. Upon entering the villa it was quite impressive, with beautiful amenities and fully equipped! Although we did not have a view of the beach, it was right across the street! The iguanas, crabs, howler monkeys, and birds on and around the property was an added delight! Walking to town was a daily short venture with cute little shops and great restaurants. We would definitely recommend staying at this villa. Also the property management group was very helpful. Thank you, Syd and Lynn!

Wonderful family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this wonderful unit in mid-April. It was perfect for the six of us (two little ones, in-laws and us)! The views couldn't be more lovely, the monkeys more awesome and the beach any closer. I would go back and stay here in a heartbeat. Syd and Lynn were absolutely wonderful to deal with - very accommodating (much appreciated) and provided helpful advice and tips. Everyone we met in the other villas were wonderful and we had a great time catching up with people around the pool. Thank you for this special trip!

Awesome Holiday!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 spent 10 days at Casablanca recently. I would like to thank Syd for being such an amazing host! We had never visited Costa Rica before and his suggestions on everything from places to shop for groceries, local restaurants, tours to take, local out of the way places to get fresh fish and necessary items to bring made our trip extremely enjoyable. The accommodations were perfect for our family and the A/C was much needed on the hot days. We used the BBQ on site 3 times to cook the fresh tuna steaks we bought from a vendor Syd suggested. They were FANTASTIC Syd!! The RPM staff was excellent and we booked all our tours through their office. Thank you again Syd! We will be back.

Clean and convenient relaxed location

  • 5 of 5

My family visited Syd and Lynne's villa in April. The air-conditioning certainly was a great relief for some ill-prepared Canadians. The villa was clean and comfortable with spacious rooms and our favourite large kitchen bar.

Security guards were very helpful and very discreet.

Other than the dishwasher going on the fritz and the BBQ tank being empty on the one day everything went swimmingly.

Thank you for our time at your villa.

Everything you need in a quiet location

  • 5 of 5

Located in a quiet location across the street of the very short path to Tamarindo beach. The inside accommodations are best described as large open space, great sized kitchen, a large bar counter with very nice appliances, sitting area has a large couch and table, TV, two lounge chairs and small table with 2 or 3 chairs for game playing, the bathrooms are spacious, very clean and modern. This place easily accommodated four adults and one 11 year old with room to spare. Everything in this place was clean, pretty modern and plenty of closet/storage space. Outside accommodations include a large patio table which seated 6 but you could easily bring out another couple of chairs while overlooking the condo grounds, listening to the howler monkeys and spotting an iguana climbing the trees. Every morning we enjoyed having our breakfast on the patio and relaxing while discussing our daily activity plans. Free Wi-fi is available with great connection. This place is within a 10 minute walking distance from really tasty restaurants, shops and bars but it may be a good idea to bring a flashlight for late returns. We walked to beach everyday and were pleasantly surprised to see monkeys relaxing above us in the trees. Both Syd and RPM were a pleasure to deal with and very accommodating to inquiries and needs. RPM employees were fantastic, from the cleaning service to the shuttle and tour driver, especially our driver Ronnie-whom we now consider a friend. We drank water straight from the faucets and enjoyed the quaint condo community swimming pool which was very well kept and always clean. Having security guards on site made my family feel safer in a new area, even though we never experienced anything to give us cause.

Very Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for a week at the beginning of March 2016. We shared the condo with another couple. We were quite satisfied with our stay. The condo itself is lovely. The kitchen is large, clean and stocked with all the utensils, small appliances, pots, pans and dishware you could need. There are two smaller bedrooms with comfortable queen beds. The third bedroom is much larger with a desk area and ensuite bathroom. All bedrooms were in good shape and the linens were clean. There were also plenty of towels in the closets. Our favorite part of the condo was the covered patio. We enjoyed drinking our coffee there every morning overlooking the grounds and the pool. The pool was okay, it seemed smaller than what we expected from the photographs but we enjoyed it regardless. The Wi-Fi was good both in the condo and down at the pool. There is plenty of wildlife right in and around the villa - we saw iguanas, parrots, other exotic birds and howler monkeys. The beach access was basically across the road down a short path. It was easy to go back and forth throughout the day. The walk to town is about half a mile - the road was dusty at times with quite a bit of traffic. The entire booking process went smoothly and any questions I had were promptly answered by Syd or by RPM -the Property Management Company. We had no issues with the rental and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. We enjoyed our time.

Owner's Response: Thanks Suzanne for your comments . We actually think the pool is terrific compared to other condos . It is 9 feet deep at the one end which allows one to dive into the pool compared to so many other places where there are shallow pools. Given the fact that there are only 5 villas that share the pool we think it is very generous in size. We hope to see you again. Syd
