This was my first time in Costa Rica and first Airbnb rental under my own account. I have used numerous other Airbnb rentals around the world through my partner’s account.
Curt was an attentive, informative, and responsive host!
The apartment was centrally located and close to the action but far enough to not be kept up at night. The neighborhood was along one of the main roads between the main highway and beachfront street.
The price was increased 33% shortly after my initial inquiry and down about 48% shortly after my departure, which appeared strange as there didn’t seem to be much going on in town.
The TV and kitchen were well equipped although we did not use them much. Parking was limited and fully occupied when we arrived but we soon learned there was a surf competition that was the cause for this. The next day there was ample space to park.
The wireless internet, while not a complete necessity for us, was intermittent and only worked in one corner of the apartment. Curt was aware of this and told us he was working to address it. Hopefully it’s all figured out by now!
Upon arrival, Curt graciously showed us to our unit even though it was after dark. He pointed out that we could not flush toilet paper down the toilet and needed to use the bathroom trash can instead. Based on your travelling expectations and experience, this could come as a shock or not. I just figured it was worth mentioning as the “trash” was not collected or dealt with until after we left. It wasn’t apparent that this would be changing or improving in the future.
While the AC units in the bedrooms worked, the AC unit in the common space did not. This ended up not being a huge issue as I indicated that we were outside as much as possible and if the bedrooms were left open while we were out, the two bedroom AC units were able to cool the entire place down.
Finally, while there was no noise from the nightlife, the listing does indicate that this is a “family oriented” complex. It was unclear whether they were guests or not but “family oriented” could refer to the family with two or three very young children that made their way to the pool every morning, unattended, around 7am and commenced with screaming and yelling at the top of their lungs for an hour or two. This would not have been an issue if the pool were at the other end of the complex but unfortunately the unit looked directly over the pool. The kids might as well have been standing inside the apartment screaming and yelling as closed windows and doors provided zero insulation from the noise. If you are a heavy sleeper or early riser (like we were), this may not be an issue!
Well I never want to write anything negative about anyone
You did not anything complaints while you where here I really want to know if anyone ever needs anything bring it to my attention I all ways will do everything I can to make you happy.
In Costa Rica you do not to put toilet paper in the toilet any where in this country this is a green country it's used for a fertilizer and they do not flush it any where in this Country (check into it)
The twin"s where 12 year old girls they did't get in the pool until 9:00 the sun is up at 5:00 am here. the family was just under you facing the pool they where being supervised at all times. On the extra charge you only said two on your reservations.
I don't mind If you go out party all night But sometimes there are family's in the complex and you need to respect them also.
So you should not mind when others are up in the morning on their vacation also.
This is a family orientated
I've never been in Costa Rica. But my stay there was great. Everyone was kind and helpful, everyone was like a family!
Doug who lives on the property took us on tours and showed us everything. When I injured my leg he was there to help me and get me around.
Thank you everyone for being there and making my my friend and me feel so welcomed.
Im only sorry I was not able to meet Curt.
Very central location, Curt is a great guy, really appreciated how he picked us up at the airport and arranged different outings for us during our trip. It really made the difference for a great trip.
The condo was comfortable and convenient to everything. For local things everything is within walking distance. Thanks!
Nice affordable 2 bed room condo! The host (Curt), local staff and neighbors were friendly and helpful. It was very easy to book, convenient location, safe and small gated community. You can walk to everything including the super market, hardware store, banks and pharmacy. The main strip, beach and restaurants are few blocks away. We enjoyed local food (cheap and tasty) at popular SODA next door with great breakfast and lunch menu. There is a Dental Care Clinic steps away which accommodated a walk-in appointment. The public bus (USD 5) leaves town every two hours that takes you right at the International Airport (San Jose) in 1 hour 30 minutes. Elencanto will be a place to call home in the next trip Jaco Beach!
Excelente la atención brindada, muy atentos a las necesidades y el lugar está muy bonito, aseado, grande, cerca de la playa, con una piscina pequeña pero apenas para lo que uno necesita, al final de cuentas uno va a la playa no a la piscina. Todo pura vida
