I was very impressed with Robert. The apartment was excellent - very clean, well kept, a good location and nice pool. He also picked me up from the airport and even though I got delayed getting through an hour because AA lost my bag he waited AND then was kind enough to take a detour through a Liberia superstore so I could pick up some basics - way above and beyond what was needed. Also gave some good advice on local restaurants, etc. and rented my a good bike for a good price.
I would highly recommend using him for bookings
i found Rober to be disorganised and misleading. The unit was dirty and the bedding hadn't been changed. When we checked in he told us the maids had just left. The next day he brought the maids over to clean & launder the linens. He then told us the owner was supposed to have cleaned the unit. Basic items like toilet paper, garbage bags, dish soap and dishcloths were not inclued. It would have been preferable to know this ahead of time so we could have been prepared. He advertised wifi, there was none. He told us he would come by with a modem but in the meantime since he was good friends with the neighbours we could get their password. The neighbours were adamant that they were not friends of his and couldn't believe his audacity. He never showed with a modem. My friend had to walk 15 minutes into town each time she needed the net to check on work A few days later a couple of city workers came by and turned off the water. The bill hadn't been paid. Robert assured us that he gave them some money that morning. We went a day and a half with no water for cooking, showers, toilets etc. It became apparent that it wasn't getting turned back on so we packed up, rented a car and found other accomodations. There were some other issues but these were the main ones.
Unfortunately I cannot recommend Robert or his company.
I have read this review in it's entirety and am appreciative of being able to respond .
In response to myself being disorganised and misleading I must say that when a guest or a host tries to make another look bad it does not make either look good .
The busiest time of the year in Costa Rica is the holiday season and our staff painstakingly does not scrimp on cleaning .
The maids and the owner had both cleaned and laundered all items in this unit , AND THE MAIDS WERE THERE AT MY REQUEST TO CHECK THE COMPLAINT PROMPTLY .
I personally checked the condominium for cleanliness and ALL LINENS WERE LAUNDERED AND THIS COMPLAINT HAD MINIMAL IF NOT AT ALL ANY MERIT .
The complaint regarding supplies has some merit and is addressed here , all condominiums are supplied with toilet paper and soap . We do not supply the following garbage bags , dish soap , dish cloths ,AND PERSONAL WASH CLOTHS .I consider these items disposable and guests must supply these items .
There is wi fi available at this unit and these guests had problems connecting .. All guests must specify if they need a direct connection especially if it is work related .
These guests mentioned neighbors not being friends or being allowed the internet password . Due to these guests demanding ,unfriendly nature , and upsetting the peacefulness of the complex by throwing cigarette butts in the gardens , they were unwelcome .
In response to the water being shut off , this is true and it had been accidently cut off and was restored within hours . The guests were credited for two full days and stayed FREE 1 night due to being inconvenenienced . The guestsa were reimbursed for the two nights by credit card . We do strive to make all guests as comfortable as possible and we are always trying to correct our mistakes . Thank you for your concerns and your time . Kind Regards Robert Holtman
Robert took good care of us and showed a genuine concern for our comfort and welfare.

I live in Costa Rica and like to visit other hosts in different countries . I meet with my family who take cruise ships to large ports . When my family arrives at any port I will be contacting other Airbnb hosts to enjoy your area a day or two ..
I love watching wildlife , everything from birds to seals , to whales and otters .
I travel the world to see the earth's
beautiful scenery and uninhabited areas . My favorite place in Costa Rica is Drakes Bay . Sir Francis Drake said Florida is the fountain of youth but Drake's Bay is the pearl of the world .
I enjoy hosting guests and introducing them to the fun things to do here in Costa Rica .
