This condo was everything we looked for, exactly like the photos and more! We visited at least 7 different beaches during our 1 week first visit to Costa Rica and THIS was the Best location, Best services, Best views, Best pools, Best most beautiful condo we could have secured. I couldnt give a higher recommendation-thank you for letting us enjoy such an incredible place in paradise!

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our second February visit in two years. We loved it so much the first time, we couldn't wait to come back. Guy is a fantastic host and gives wonderful recommendations- everything from where to grocery shop, buy the best fruit and watch the sunset. He is so prompt in his responses.

The condo is exceptional- even more beautiful than the pictures. Immaculate, wide comfy balcony on which we ate every meal, quiet, well equipped, beautiful bathrooms, great washer/ dryer etc. Warm pool with super fun slide.

We are wildlife fans and this resort is exceptional. The condo looks out on the pool and a fruit tree which is an "airport for the birds". There is a huge variety all day long including a spectacular pair of macaws eating in the morning.. We saw many iguanas, two types of monkeys at the small park attached to Carabella's restaurant ( go around 8-9 when they put out fruit after breakfast) sea turtles and many types of fish on the perfect beach 3 minutes from the condo. Monkeys and macaws on the beach also.

I snorkeled every day and found it to be very calm. The ocean is the ideal temperature and watching the sun set every night from the beach is a delightful ritual we would never miss. Wonderful star gazing from the beach as well.

If you are a birder make sure to sign up to do any bird walks with Alex, the naturalist for the resort. You can hire him to do private boat or walking tours in addition to the free 6 AM tours. He is phenomenal. His days off are M and T. Last year he hopped on the boat tour at the Tarcoles River and was the private naturalist for 7 of us from the resort.

I can't rave enough about this place. If you can rent a car it is helpful if only for stocking up at the great grocery store in Herradura. Other than that and a trip to Carrara, we didn't really need it. Thanks Guy for renting out a piece of paradise!

The Good, the Bad and the Beautiful

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from 3 great days at Punta Leona - Golden Reef. Guy's place is wonderful - extremely well equipped and very inviting. Once you get through a tired resort, the Golden Reef complex and the beach are fantastic. Would recommend arriving as well stocked as possible, the traffic getting in and out of the resort can be frustrating. Guy was great to deal with from start to finish, thank you.

2 night getaway at the beach

  • 5 of 5

Views were outstanding, the condo was immaculate. The large patio overlooking the ocean was our favorite space. A fruiting tree at eye level attracted many beautiful birds; as avid birdwatchers we were delighted. Johann was at the door when we arrived and was gracious and helpful in every way. Guy answered emails promptly and made sure our stay was troublefree. We would go back in a heartbeat.

Great location and well kept apartment

  • 5 of 5

My 5 friends and I loved this apartment. There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms so perfect size for 6 people. The pool is a little small but the slide makes for fun times! The power went out for the entire Punta Leona resort for about 12 hours which made us a little nervous because we just got groceries but apparently is normal. The beach is very close! The nearest grocery story is about 1.5 mile walk and the supermarket is outside of the resort. I recommend having a car if you want to go grocery shopping.

A/Cs kept the house cool the entire time, the main A/C was leaking but it still worked.

Balcony was so lovely with the best view

Enough towels for the group

Stove/Dishwasher/washing machine/dryer are all in great condition and we used often

Overall- the trip was fabulous and I can see myself renting this place again!

Amazing Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is absolutely amazing!! The view is breathtaking. We enjoyed seeing the Scarlet McCaw's fly all around. We also enjoyed seeing iguanas on the property. We had everything that we needed for our stay. The beds were comfortable. there was lots of space in the condo to enjoy. The balcony was our families favorite place as we could sit and watch and listen to the ocean for hours. This is a great place to just relax and enjoy!!! It was peaceful and beautiful. Guy was absolutely great with all of the questions I had. He responded immediately. We rented golf carts for our stay which were great for our visit. We would definitely go back to Guy's Condo again with our family. Thanks
