Very Good

“Wonderful Condo!”

Reviewed 24 Aug 2013

We had a wonderful time at your condo. From the moment we opened the front door, we were in awe. The place smelled so good and it was spotless. The color scheme was beautiful, as well as all the decorations throughout the place. It was very cozy and it felt a lot like home. The beds were so comfortable (even the sofabed) -the most comfortable beds we had during our stay in Costa Rica ;-D. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need. The swimming pool was a very popular place with our kids, and the jacuzzi in the pool was amazing. The location within walking distance of La Penca and local supermarkets and restaurants was so convenient. We felt safe at all times and enjoyed having the condo -and the beach!- pretty much to ourselves. We are already set on going back next summer. You'll be hearing from us next year! Thank you for your patience answering our never ending questions. Your condo was much more than what we were expecting. You have a very beautiful place. Take care and we'll contact you sometime next year.

“Costa Rican Paradise”

Reviewed 18 May 2013

We stayed here for 8 nights to attend a friend's wedding at the nearby Westin resort. We are so glad we chose this route instead of staying in one of the bigger hotels. It was peaceful, accommodating, clean and gave us a real taste of Costa Rica. The locals were wonderful and the nearby beach and few restaurants in the area, is all you need to enjoy your own piece of paradise.

“An Exceptional Costan Rican Experience”

Reviewed 7 Feb 2013

Two couples made our first visit to Costa Rica and to Casa del Sol and, after two weeks, we left agreeing that the entire experience was outstanding. The accommodation is tucked away in a corner of the complex with lovely shade for the patio and much needed fans and air conditioning for the brief time spent indoors. The condo was so pleasantly decorated and entirely comfortable for the four of us. Everything we needed was available including staff who were so friendly and accommodating. We rented a car but also took the bus and realized it too was a pretty good way to move around. An aspect to highlight is how the condo complex is set in the midst of a village so we not only had excellent and secure accommodation but also had the experience of village life. There are a number of restaurants in the area but none better than the one across the street which became our favorite place to dine. There is a short walk to Playa Penca, a spectacular beach, where every morning and evening we enjoyed wonderful swims and incredible sunsets. Come prepared for hot afternoons but with the great pool and shade, come prepared to have a truly fine Costan Rican holiday such as four of us had at Casa del Sol.

“Pretty much perfect for our family holiday”

Reviewed 27 Jan 2013

We loved staying at Casa del Sol with our 2 young grandsons and their parents. The master bedroom was actually big enough for the four of them; we slept in the second bedroom. We could happily cook our own meals, or eat out: the best restaurant in that region, Sol y Mar, is just outside the gates. As is a grocery store with helpful staff. It's in a village; most days, our kids had a little soccer in the late afternoon with dad, grandad, and a couple of local kids. The swimming pool is meant for having a dip at all times of the day, and just a few steps from the patio. Penca beach is just a pleasant 3-minute walk away, and great for swimming, cavorting in the waves, discovering beach wildlife and birds, playing in the sand. Best of all, kind of a family beach, never crowded. The management/security staff are pleasant and helpful, yet never interfering. Yes, there's air conditioning; parking inside the gates; a washer, dryer, TV, VCR, reading lights; linens; and everything is clean and bright and feels safe. Yet you are in a different land: easy access to tropical beaches; to flora and fauna right next to you; and to more dramatic wildlife within 2 or 3 hours' drive. The only thing we disliked was the noise everybody's air conditioning made outside; a small price to pay for comfort! A word about suitability for disabled: great for seniors in general; probably great for those with mobility issues: all one level, just one step up from ground level, showers with a 5" rim, and spacious. But probably not suitable for wheelchair-bound folks. And very kid-friendly!

I loved the place, pretty close to La Penca Beach (one of my favorites in Costa Rica).

“The Most Perfect Place for a Memorable Visit to Paradise”

Reviewed 26 Aug 2012

We were very fortunate to stay at Casa Del Sol for an extended stay ~ and wish we could have stayed longer. Having travelled every corner of this wonderful country of Costa Rica ~ we can honestly say this is one of the best places to spend your holiday. Daphne and her husband have thoughtfully brought together everything you'll need for the perfect vacation experience. Casa Del Sol is hidden away in the delightful town of Portrero. The locals are friendly and will make you feel welcome immediately. The area is safe, quaint and beautiful. Some of the best beaches in the entire country are within walking distance ~ including Playa Penca, Azucar and Danta. The condo is stunning ~ absolutely everything you'll need to feel right at home and even more... We were delighted to find everything we needed to make meals, to relax and to enjoy. We have so many fond memories and they include the very friendly staff, Cindy & Pablo. Thank you Daphne ~ you are truly one of the best to rent from ~ we are blessed to have found your little piece of paradise... we'll be back soon!

“Lazy Lizard on a private beach, a Tico adventure”

Reviewed 5 Jun 2012

We spent 5 days in Santa Cruz and loved the authentic Costa Rican experience it provided. We were able to enjoy the best of both worlds, one experiencing all the attractions in the area within a 45 min drive but then coming back to relax in an authentic Tico community. One of the greatest experiences was watching the sunset on the beautiful Playa Penca beach just a 5min walk from the door of the condo to the sand on the beach. A must for any adventure seekers is the Lazy Lizard tours, the hospitality and experience with them is amazing. We loved and enjoyed our time in Santa Cruz and would recommend it to anyone traveling to Costa Rica, it is an easy drive from the Libera airport and central to any adventure you want to partake in.

Response from the owner We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Casa del Sol. Thanks for the lovely review. We look forward to having you back next time you're in Costa Rica!

We had a wonderful time!! The condo was perfect for my family.

“Wonderful experience”

Reviewed 19 Jan 2012

Great property located in the small town of Potrero steps from beautiful Playa Penca and minutes from Brasilito and Playa Conchal. The condo has everything you need. The people are wonderful. Car (four-wheel-drive) is a must to get around in dirt roads. Many activities and great restaurants in the area. Unforgettable experience.

“A beautiful, comfortable condo nestled within a small Costa Rica”

Reviewed 2 Jan 2012

We enjoyed the comfort and luxury of this well appointed condo, while being able to experience a sense of the everyday lives of the very friendly neighbouring people. The nearby beach is perfect for swimming - warm water, sandy, safe. We also loved being able to walk out of the condo and have the beautiful pool right there. The restaurant right across the street from the condo has delicious, inexpensive food.
