About This Listing
This two bedroom condo in Costa Rica is a five minute walk to the beach and a ten minute walk to town. No need for a car! The safe, small and private community has the best pool around; you have a panoramic view of the sea from your lounge chair.
The Green Leaf Galeria is exactly that- it's own little world of revolving artwork amid lush plants. All of the wooden furniture is hand-made in Sarchi, the town that specializes in carpentry here in the central part of Costa Rica. Currently, a local artist fills the walls with his world-renowned work.
If you listen, you can hear the rush of the waves that are just a short walk away as you lounge on the plant-filled patio in a rocking chair.
The complex has regular iguana visitors, and a myriad of birdlife, palms and other flora. It is not uncommon to see howler monkeys in the area- you can certainly hear them!
Know that there are stairs. To get to the pool there are many stairs (perhaps 100) since it is so high. Once you get there, you'll see why it's worth the trip.
Guests who are checked in with us have unrestricted access to the shared pool, however, there are limits to the number of friends you can bring to the pool if they are not staying with us.
Interaction with Guests
Your manager is within shouting distance though you might not hear from him unless you need something.
Playas del Coco is a place you will visit more than once because you will love it. A five minute walk will get you to the beach and you can walk along the boardwalk until you reach, perhaps, Cafe de Playa, where you can sit and have a cold beer while you people watch and feel the ocean on your face. The nights are alive with bars and restaurants in Coco Beach! Pura Vida!
It is easy to walk but if you are coming back after dark then you will want to grab a taxi for $2. You can rent a golf cart or a bike too, if you wish.
Be considerate of your neighbors. If you want to party, please go to town. Please smoke outside only. No pets, sorry. Enjoy yourself to the max.
Our stay at the condo was lovely. Playa del Coco was a great introduction to Costa Rica; with the beach just a few minutes walk down the road, and shopping and restaurants nearby as well. The pool, and the views from the pool were amazing.
Aexis was such a great host; answering my enquiries promptly.
We just got back from a two week stay in this beautiful condo in Tucanes. We had begun planning months before arriving, and Aexis was always so quick to reply to any message I sent her way. Once in CR it was just a dream. The condo was perfect for what we needed it for, the kitchen is very well equipped, and we had some awesome welcoming items already in the fridge and cabinets. There was a little hitch with the wifi, but that was fixed very quickly (and who needs wifi when you have the beach anyway?!). The Tucanes condo is a five-minute walk from the ocean, a ten-minute walk from the heart of the main strip of stores, bars, and restaurants, and the rooftop pool shared among the Tucanes condominiums is, in itself, worth the entire rental cost. Ocean view, equipped with BBQ and outdoor kitchenette/bar, it's perfect for sunsets, and so refreshing when you need a cool down in the middle of the day. I would highly recommend this place if you're in the Coco area. You will NOT be disappointed! Thanks again, Aexis!
Mon épouse et moi avons loué le condo de Aexis pour un mois. Nous avons beaucoup aimé notre expérience. Aexis a été très aimable. Le condo est bien équipé et sans reproche. La piscine et sa vue sur la baie est formidable. En plus, il fait toujours beau à Playa Del Coco. Chaud et beau.
Aexis, a été d'une gentilesse incroyable. Elle a répondu à mes multiples questions dans un temps record.
What a lovely home. Very small but built with love. The kitchen was tiny but packed with everything you needed so no need to go shopping for napkins, plastic wrap etc. It was all there along with a lovely bowl of fruit and a few goodies to get started with. Her relative Eddie was quickly there when we asked another tenant how to get into our temporary home with needed information such as web access and the best shopping. The view from the pool was as nice as described and the pool clean. The only real problem we had was with the door but my husband got it to work a bit better but it does need work.
The reservation was canceled 7 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
From start to finish my experience booking with Aexis was great and easy. The condo was even more beautiful than the pictures show. We visited for New Year's Eve and the view of the city and fireworks from the rooftop pool was AMAZING and unforgettable. When I return to Costa Rica I'll definitely stay at Tucanes. Thanks so much Aexis for making us feel at home.
