Todo estuvo muy bien. Ron siempre se mantuvo en contacto y envió toda la información necesaria durante nuestra estancia. El studio esta equipado con todo lo básico. Basado en el buen precio, definitivamente cumplió con mis expectativas.
Wow. Far exceeding expectations! Ron, his family, and Marty (lives in other guest house) were welcoming from the beginning. Ron picked us up from the airport and drove us the 1 1/2 to Orosi. It felt more like a guided tour as he stopped at look outs, took is down side streets to see churches, and answered all of our questions about the structure of Costa Rica. The cottage is clean and had all of the amenities we needed. We borrowed his bikes. A tire popped and he went out to get a brand new one. His son was having a go away party with his extended family, and he invited us! He gave us a delicious Costa Rican dinner with his family. We got a glimpse into the REAL Costa Rica (that is lost in much of the other touristy cities we have been to).
If you are looking for a welcoming home stay (who leaves you fresh fruit on your doorstep while you are away) stay here!
We spent a month in Ron's condo in Coco and had a great time. Although we didn't meet Ron in person, he was always accessible by email and attentive to our needs. Ariel, the building manager was also very helpful. The condo is very comfortable with plenty of hot water, a great AC and a kitchen with plenty of cooking utensils. Most importantly, it was a great value considering how overpriced everything is in Coco. We did a lot of cooking! Which kept us stay within budget. The pool was very relaxing and the beautiful beach is about a 30 min walk towards town. Thanks for everything, Ron!
Lovely place to stay. Full studio with everything you need. You need a car as walking is probably about 30 min. to get to the beach and the bikes are not really in good shape for using. For us it wasn't a problem. Did some scuba diving and there are plenty nice places to eat. Ron was very helpful if we had any questions. Although he was not physically there... He was quick on the email or airbnb app. Security took care of the rest. The bed in the studio seemed to be a little weak, but would definitely recommend the place to others.
Ron es un anfintrion y una persona excelente, la primera noche cuando llegamos un poco tarde, él personalmente nos llevó a comprar algo para nuestra cena. Al dia siguiente consiguió información sobre los volcanes de alrededor muy útil y para la salida el día siguiente incluso nos dió unos muffins caseros riquísimos.
El alojamiento es perfecto para relajarse, muy seguro, limpio y con facilidades para preparar comida.
Muchas Gracias Ron, Katie y familia corta estancia pero muy positiva
Ron was available to for questions and gave great guidance to get a local feel for the culture. It was a nice apartment that met all of our needs and provided a space to us to make snacks. I can recommend this place to anyone with confidence and that Ron is truly a great and available host. Wish we would have had more time to spend there.
Ron is a great landlord. I had special requirements regarding Internet speed for my mobile business, which he accommodated before my arrival. The condo I stayed at was on the 1st floor - #15 and was very clean. The place was fully stocked with pots, pans, plates, cups, silverware, knives. Ron even provided a few extras like bars of soap, dish soap, sponge, backup water, towels, bath mat, umbrella, boogie board, etc.
The condo complex has a shared washer/dryer (free) which was never occupied because the complex isn't fully occupied. Maybe some of the tenants are only there part of the year. I was there during the slow season.
The place is also secure. There's a 24 hour guard on duty which was nice to have when coming home late. Unit has an A/C which worked decently, but I didn't keep it on too much to save on electricity. A stand-up fan is also in the unit.
My favorite part was the pool. It was kept very clean and was ALWAYS warm. I had previously been staying in La Garita (near San Jose) and it's a much cooler temperature so the pools never got warm. I loved the pool here and got in every day.
I didn't have a car, and that made getting to town a little bit lengthy of a process sometimes on foot, which is my preferred mode of transportation. There are a few bikes that renters can use, which I started using almost every day because walking took a while and it was hot. I'd recommend this place most if you have a car or moto. Or just grab a few of the taxi drivers phone numbers to have in your condo so you can call and order a taxi when needed. It's a small town so you'll make friends with a few taxi drivers quick.
Thanks again Ron.
Here's a video I made for my friends and family who were curious where I was staying. If you'd like to see it too, here's the link:
Ron was very helpful and accommodating, and the apartment is very tidy, and lovely. I'm so happy I decided to travel to Orosi, it is such a hidden gem in Costa Rica. Ron and Katia are very warm people, he offered to help me remove a very large spider as well :)
Very happy with this airbnb!
Ron, his beautiful wife, Kattia, and their wonderful sons made us feel so welcome as if we were members of their family. Our two night stay was definitely the highlight of our trip and with Ron's help we found the area that we want to live when we relocate to Costa Rica. He helped us navigate the nearby towns, restaurants, and local views and showed us several different areas that he thought we might like. Ron helped me overcome my fear of taking public buses in a foreign country by riding with us to our stop. I cannot say enough kind things about Ron and his family. I really wished we were able to stay there longer. The casita was clean, comfortable and as described. The family cat, Ova, was friendly and loving and made it feel even more like home. Pura Vida personified.
Ron was a great host ! Communication was the best, he even went out of his way and sent me a map to get to the rental. I would recommend this rental to anyone staying in playas de coco in Costa Rica Beautiful place beautiful vibes !
Durante la estadia de Ron y su familia demostraron ser personas muy tranquilas y todos muy amables, se adaptan muy bien, espero haber cumplido con sus espectativas y volverlos a ver en el futuro.
Ron and his family stayed at our apartment for 5 days they were a really nice family, very friendly and proactive,my family told me how nice they were since I don't live near the apartment. We kept comunicación trough email. They got to the apartment in Baños-Cuenca without (email hidden)n told me that they like Baños and they had a nice family time. I definitely recommend Ron to any host,it was a pleasure hosting them I hope they choose us for accommodations in the future.

Aunque no logramos conocernos en persona, tuvimos muy buena conexión y comunicación...
considero que Ron y su esposa Kattia fueron muy respetuosos con el departamento durante su estadía.
Gracias Ron y Kattia..!!
Ron and his lovely family stayed at our apartment. What a pleasant family! Only have good things to say about them. The kids are very polite. The communication to make the reservation was very straight forward. The apartment was left very tidy.
Ron was a perfect guest. He was friendly and considerate. He was respectful of our home while fitting right in with our family. Ron was quiet and clean. I have only nice things to say. I hope he will stay with us again in the future. The stay was too short!
Ron is friendly, happy, easy and fun to talk with and a considerate guest. He came with chocolates in hand! Need I say more? :-) We would be very happy to host Ron anytime
