Very comfortable and clean. Quiet with a nice upper patio space for sitting out at night. Well stocked kitchen and great amenities that you are welcome to take to the beach but you need a car to enjoy the beach amenities. It's a 5 minute drive to nearby restaurants and stores as well as beaches. Cynthia was a great host and very easy to communicate with, she got back to me within 10 minutes of each message I sent.

Had a great stay at Cynthia's. We found the place to be very comfortable. The A/C worked great, no issues sleeping in the hot climate. The provided cooler and ice packs were well used keeping us fed on our daily outings. My kids loved to pool!

Our stay in Cynthia's apartment was great, it was clean, close to Potrero, Penca and Prieta beaches. The pool is pretty nice, the condo is quiet and safe and the kitchen is well equipped. Cynthia was available all the time to answer questions so we could prepare appropiately and make sure we took everything we needed with us to the trip. We certainly consider going back sometime. We recommed it.

We loved our stay! The condo is great, but what really makes this listing worth while is the owner. Cynthia is among the best hosts we have stayed with, she is very responsive and helpful. She'll even recommend places to go and things to see if you ask. Our stay was not perfect but that is because Otto was going through at the time. 2 days prior Cynthia emailed me and offered to cancel the reservation because of Otto. We chose to still go and other than loosing power the first night do to a tree being blown over onto the power lines, we had a great time and many fantastic experiences. Some of them include seeing a newly hatched Sea turtle travel the distance from its nest to the ocean (its quite far when your that small). Another is seeing Llanos de Cortez Waterfall, just south of Liberia about 15 minutes.

Cynthia's appartement is very nice and located in a safe vacation village. We didn't meet Cynthia in person but it was easy to communicate with her and she was helpful. We enjoyed the pool, the beaches, and the Italian restaurant a few steps away. The apartment itself is providing quality equipment, has a nice decor and a comfy bed, towels and bed sheets. It also has nice curtains and air conditioning allowing you to rest well, anytime of the day. For further visitors, I would recommend to rent a car, even though we could walk and use the public bus, it is quite tiring to walk in this tropical heat and it can be tricky in the dark since roads are not paved and narrow. The security staff was always courteous and helpful, which was appreciated especially on arrival to Villagio Claudia. I would recommend this rental to anyone wanting a relaxing time near the beach.
