Treetop Condo Steps To The Beach
average rating of 4.0 based on 1 reviews

Open-air condo, hot jungle and close to beach

  • 4 of 5

We visited Costa Rica for two weeks in August 2015 as a family of four, with a 4 year-old and a 1 year-old. Overall a great trip and the Nosara area is awesome.

The location of the condo was great for us with the beach just a few minute walk and a few GOOD restaurant options also within an easy walk. The condo itself was a nice open layout, just as seen in the photos and it was well-appointed with pots, pans, coffee maker, etc. so that we were able to cook most of our meals - a few with fresh fish we bought from the fishermen on the beach.

Playa Pelada was an ideal location with kids as the tidal pools at low tide were playgrounds for our kids to swim, discover shells, chase fish, etc. Pelada seems mellower and less crowded than Guiones, which has the surf and is a 15 minute walk to the first breaks.

The other condo guests were families like ours, though mostly European, and we enjoyed meeting and spending time with them. The pool on the upper level was where we spent most afternoons to escape the heat, and it is very quiet and peaceful up by the pool.

We went during August, which is typically the rainy season, but the rains did not come when we were there, so the open-air condo was very hot during the majority of the day (this is coming from a Texan family, we know humid heat). This made naps for the kids challenging, and we basically spent the whole day in our swimsuits, wet, either from the shower or swimming pool. We were told, this weather was atypical, but we want future families to have that on the radar. The fans weren't great, but the owner did supply a floor fan a few days into the stay to help with the heat. We never used the nice furniture inside because it was too hot.

Keep in mind, the entire complex is open air so you hear everything around you (Howler monkeys, cars, music, birds, etc.). This makes for a very Costa Rican experience.

The condo's internet was down while we were there, which made working remotely much more challenging that I had planned. I ended up hunting for a reliable wifi source throughout Nosara's coffee shops and found the best to be Cafe Paris, FYI. The condo owner apologized and mentioned looking into a dedicated internet service for the condo in the near future.

Angela, the property manager, was available and helpful during our stay. There is constant property surveillance, so we felt totally safe.

Overall, a great trip and we do plan to return to Nosara in the future.
