About Frank Evans
A husband and wife combo Canadian entrepreneurs fell in love with Costa Rica upon our first holiday here. The laid back atmosphere as well as the exceptionally friendly people and good food were the decision makers for us. In addition we found the wildlife and greenery abundant and easily accessible within many national parks. Our activities included a 2 minute drive to a blue flag snorkeling beach at Ocotal, a volcano tour including zip lining, water slide, horseback riding, hot springs and typical Costa Rican lunch. Our family and friends who have visited us rave about the scenery, the food, and the variety of activities available to them locally. We return as often as possible and have found many friends from all over the world that now reside here as well.
Frank Evans purchased this Condo in 2008

Fantastic location nice condo well worth the trip!
Nice condo perfect location. We usually walked to Ocotal beach and drove to Coco beach (windy narrow road was safer but can walk to both). Harvey met us and took care of any needs we had with the condo. Need a better cleaning service and exterminator for the ants. Talked to Frank and he appreciated our reports and took care of them. Beds were super comfy, pool very nice, need more lounge chairs for pool. They have 2 washers and 1 dryer for your usage free. This is a great price would like to return and rent for a longer period of time. They are 45 minutes from the airport roads are nice. Prefer this area of Costa Rica wasn’t as humid and they have nice ocean breezes. Snorkeling on Ocotal was nice if the jellyfish weren’t around. Depending on the wind is how you determine where to snorkel. Husband fished off the rocky point at low tide. Just need smaller Meps spinners, or bait. Many tourists from Toronto and locals very nice. Lots of grocery stores and a wonderful open fruit market down the road. Worth the long journey from Alaska to thaw out. There is a Club Coco where you can play tennis use the pool, weight room, take yoga classes and eat at the best restaurant called Santorini. Only costs $75 for 1 week family membership. So this condo had everything even affordable golf $65/person for clubs, cart, green fees at Vista Ridge golf and country club. I contacted the manager and he gave us a deal. Loved it was hard to come back to below zero temps. Thanks Frank and Harvey for being there for us. Susan
Thank you Susan for the lovely review. You were our first guests during high season and we had just hired a new cleaning service and we are just getting used to each other's programs. I refunded the security deposit and the cleaning fee and apologize for the mix up. I will have the condo sprayed for bugs and ants. Thank you for being so understanding Re the cleaning. If you do want to return we would love to be your hosts again. You are lovely people.
Great Property, Not the Best Location
To start off on a positive note, the condo and grounds were quite nice. The landscaping was beautiful, the grounds and pools were clean and tidy, the neighbors were awesome, there were several pools to choose from, and there was plenty of free parking.
However, the location of this condo is not ideal. Especially if you don't have a car. Playa Ocotal is within walking distance, but the walk involves several steep hills that would not be great for anyone with mobility issues. Ocotal is a nice enough beach, but small, and the only facility is Father Rooster's, which is not a bad little spot, but I'm not a fan of hanging out at the same place every day.
Playas del Coco is larger, and has a small 'town' beside it, but doesn't offer much in the way of nightlife. It is not walking distance from this condo; it is about a 10 minute drive.
If you have a car, and prefer the very relaxed vacation style rather than adventure and exploring, this place could work for you.
Hello Jess : I am glad that your overall experience here was a positive one. The location is 1.7 KM's from the center of Playa Del Coco so it is a short drive. Some people walk it as there form of morning exercise. Thanks to my wonderful neighbors who are often mentioned in the reviews. I trust that all the other things were working properly and that you were satisfied with the condo and its comfort. I thank you for your review and comments so people with limited mobility will be made more aware. The small town has three locations that have live music and dancing each night, all you can eat pizza and pasta and movie night for $9. Happy hour from 3 to 7 with $2 drinks. A beach side bar/restaurant with music and dancing, the boardwalk, the casino, The Hard Rock Cafe and several excellent restaurants to choose from. I hope you return to enjoy all the adventures that Costa Rica has to offer. Frank
Great Condo and Area!
We stayed at this condo for 10 nights and enjoyed every minute. The condo itself has everything needed for an independent vacation where you can cook when you want and just relax by the pool. The neighbours were terrific and very helpful in activities and events happening. Frank was very accommodating and available when needed. The area is super for walking daily either to the beach or to Playa Coco. No rental car is needed which we loved. The local beaches along with eateries were all great. Food is terrific and the locals are very friendly. Wonderful vacation and definitely planning to return next year.
I am pleased that you found everything you wanted in your vacation here in Coco.
Please come back when you need more of the rest and relaxation that only Costa Rica can offer.
During our 9 night stay we found everything perfect, just as described. Pool area beautiful, condo well equipped, friendly neighbours, we walked daily to either Ocotal beach or Playa del Coco. Taxi from Coco $2. Weather was fantastic. Frank provided airport pick up and drop off for a reasonable price and took us for a tour and grocery shopping when we arrived.
Thanks for your generous review. I am pleased you both enjoyed the condo and the grounds to say nothing of the people there. I do have some items you left behind. What do you want to do with them?
Great winter get away.
During our 3 week stay we found everything as described and better. Mature tropical landscaping around pool, condo well equipped, friendly owners, could walk to both Ocotal beach and Playa del Coco (no vehicle required). Weather was perfect. Frank provided airport pick up and drop off, groceries requested and great advise on local sites.
Thanks for the great review Larry. We as so glad you enjoyed our condo and found everything you wanted and needed. We would love to have you as guests again. Lucia the cleaning lady was overwhelmed with your generous tip.
Frank & Linda.
A great spot to visit and return to.
We had a great stay! The weather was perfect. The condo great! Slept incredibly well!
Playas Del Coco had lots of variety in restaurants. $5.00 cab ride to town inc. tip. We used trip advisor as a guide to choose restaurants and it was right on. Beaches were convenient. Pool right outside the door. Frank and Linda were great hosts. They pre stocked the fridge upon request and assisted with a grocery trip. We took two tours and the tour company picked up at the condo.
We will be back and highly recommend it.
