Very Good

“Great time in Costa Rica, memories to last a lifetime.”

Reviewed 21 Jul 2015

Condo was perfectly appointed. Comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, plenty of towels. Million dollar views. Air conditioner worked like a charm. Great pool and workout facility. Restaurant served wonderful breakfast. Grocery shopping, restaurants and bars nearby. We would definitely stay here again.

“Absolutely amazing!”

There was nothing we didn't love about this vacation! The condo was spacious, clean and had all the creature comforts of home. Wifi is always a huge plus when traveling out of the states and makes things so much easier for us to keep up with. The view is absolutely breathtaking. We enjoyed massages on the patio not once but twice as it was so beautiful and the massage was so fantastic that we couldn't help ourselves! It is conveniently located and we easily traveled around to different beaches. We saw monkey's everyday on the way in to the complex, such a neat experience. The beach club is conveniently located right next to Father Roosters which quickly became our favorite hang out spot (Try a mint margarita! it's a must!) I would recommend this vacation rental for anyone looking to relax and enjoy the view or head out for adventures and come home to a safe, secure and clean place.

During a recent stay at Playas del Coco, Costa Rica, we had the priviliege of staying at at this lovely condominium at Cocoa Bay Estates owned by Stephanie Lord and Becky Richards. The condo is located on a hill overlooking the bay and the view is fabulous. The condo is so nicely furnished and comfortable, it was like home only better. Our stay in Coca Bay is one we will remember always. Pura Vida!

The views from this condo are amazing. The photographs accurately depict the property. The condo has everything you need to prepare meals. Furnishings are first class and the beds are super comfortable. The 3 ensuite bathrooms are a nice touch. We made daily use of the pool & fitness areas and spent a couple afternoons off site at the Ocotal Beach Club. The on-site restaurant has excellent food. There are also great local restaurants. The owners were extremely helpful during the booking of the condo and promptly answered all of our E-mail inquiries. We were well aware of it's location and proximity to the town site and this was one of the reasons we chose this location. We rented a car for the two weeks as there was so much to see and do in the area. It is about a 5 minute drive to the town site of Coco Bay. It is about a 5 minute walk to the resort pool, fitness centre and restaurant. Our party of 5 arrived at 11:00 p.m. and we were met by Nicki the property manager. She was very knowledgeable of the area, suggested things to do & see and even arranged a tour for us. She was easy to contact throughout our stay. Some highlights of our trip were the arenal Volcano, Tamarindo Beach, zip lining, sunset cruise and Palo Verde National Park boat tour. Plus the town & beach of Coco Bay is a great place to spend some time. We would definitely stay here again. It is a beautiful home and we appreciate the Richards / Lords for allowing us the opportunity to stay there.

My finance and I stayed here for one full week and had an absolutely amazing time!! The condo is decorated beautifully and the master bath was definitely my favorite room of the house...huge! The view from the patio is stunning and because there is awesome lounge furniture out there, we spent so much time outside just reading and relaxing. The drive into town was only 5 minutes, and there were 3 grocery stores close by. So we just stalked up on food and prepared everything back at the condo. The pool and restaurant are only a minute drive...literally, and very beautiful. We went swimming and met some amazing people down by the pool whom we hung out with all week long. The beach is only a short drive as well and while it could be walked too, we recommend driving, as the condo sits atop a steep hillside (which is why the views are so amazing) so walking down in a breeze, but walking back up is not fun, haha. We also recommend renting a car!!! Yes, everything is very close by, but if you are wanting to do any of the day trips, jungle tours, or even just get groceries to and from the super market, you will need a car. We were Sooo grateful that Becky suggested we do this, as we were not planning on it. Looking back, I have no idea how in the world we would have done without one! We drove all over for volcanic hot springs, zip lining, and other day tours. The only issue we had was that our guide was extremely sick and could not help up plan anything. Luckily, another concierge took care of everything for us, but we suggest having an idea of what you would like to do while in Costa Rica, so you are able to plan things yourself and not rely on someone else. We've already talked to Tom and Becky about returning to stay at their home away from home, and cant wait for our next trip!Stay here, you wont regret it!!!

I had a great time when I went to Costa Rica. My fiancé and I loved all the activities, walking around the town, trying to talk to the locals, as well as enjoying a glass (bottle) of wine relaxing on the balcony back at the condo. You really can be as active or as lazy as you want, both options or fabulous. Can't wait to be back. The price was great I asked a few friends and another property owner in Costa Rica what their prices were and I was amazed. Take advantage!!!

I found this condo to be perfect and very comfortable!! I never wanted to leave!!! It captures the true character of the town along with the feeling of being in a "high end" resort. I can't wait to return!

I highly suggest spending your Costa Rican vacation enjoying scenic ocean views in this peaceful private condo. This condo is located off the tourist track but close to shopping, activities, restaurants, and the airport. Each room was tastefully decorated and fully stocked with all the comforts of home. The best part of my vacation was lounging on the spaceous patio overlooking the breathtaking views. The property management staff was knowledgeable and always helpful. The amenities offered are everything you would expect from a top rated resort including: Tennis, beach club access, community pool, and gym. I recommend for family trips or groups of friends looking for a high end destination.

“What a view and fabulous location!!”

Reviewed 25 Sep 2011

When we walked into the condo I could not believe the view and also the large covered patio! Everything was perfect, from the recommended excursions, to the warm welcome and being close to the town of Playas Del Coco. We had a great time at a very reasonable price. I was very impressed with all of the amenities, tennis, pool, beach club, and of course the people were so friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend this condo and location.

“Fantastic Costa Rica Experience!!”

Reviewed 15 Sep 2011

I could not have been happier with our Costa Rica accomodations! Typically when traveling to places of this nature the beds are very uncomfortable, not the case here! Clearly the beds were imported! The views are absolutely amazing and the location was perfect. I didn't realize before going how few rentals have great views of the ocean being up on the hill we could see everything in all directions. The condo was extremely clean and well kept and accomodated me and my 7 girlfriends very comfortably. We had everything we needed to make some amazing meals that we enjoyed on the spacious patio. Minutes away from the beach and downtown and secluded enough to feel very safe and secure. The monkeys swinging from the trees upon entrance was an especially nice touch. The club house is beautiful and the staff were amazing they accomodated all of our needs including making a run to the grocery store for us before we got there to stock us up on dinner and breakfast items and scheduling massages for us in the condo. Wow!! It was very easy to get information on things to do in the area and there was never a dull moment. I will definitely return to this wonderful retreat! Thank you for such a memorable experience!
