About Gerald Faldyn

Jacob visited Costa Rica in 2013 and fell in love with the beautiful country, beaches and tropical forest and the friendly people and decided to purchase the apartment complex with hopes of eventually living in Costa Rica.

Gerald Faldyn purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Gerald Faldyn chose Puntarenas

Palmas Suenos is small and quaint and offered a good starting point to learn the rental business and customer support that goes with it.

What makes this apartment unique

Palmas Suenos is located just outside of Quepos and Manuel Antonio. It offers a very quiet tropical forest setting at a very reasonable price. Elias Chinchilla, a Costa Rica born Tico, is the Apartment Manager and lives with his wife and daughter in one of the apartment units and provides a personal greeting to each guest. His presence also offers a level of security since he is there every night. Wireless internet, cable TV and hot shower water are all included at no additional cost.

Great place. The location is fantastic because of the sorrounding nature.

  • 4 of 5

We loved the apartment, simple and super clean, with everything that we could need: air conditioner (it was very hot when we were there), towels, good WiFi, fridge... It's very quiet and close to a hiking path that we loved.

It's important to know that it's 10 minutes far from Quepos by car (500 colones for a taxi or 300 ish for a bus) and 30 minutes from Manuel Antonio (300 ish colones by bus). So unless you have your own car, remember to add 1600 colones per day in transportation if you want to move around. We didn't mind at all because we chose a quiet beautiful location but not everyone has the same preferences.

The hosts were also great. The communication prior arrival worked very efficiently.

Nice size but needs a lot of repair

  • 2 of 5

Elias is great and location apartment size huge but the photos must be really really old. All windows are covered in cob webbs, restroom door has to close with a table or swings open, cracks in every wall and don't expect full bedding. Could be a beautiful property with some work! For the cost nightly its a deal but you can get a nicer place for a bit more.
