Just got back from staying in this apartment and I couldn't be happier with the entire process. Right after I booked Carlos messaged me and was very prompt with answers. Once I arrived at the airport he met me there super early in the morning to give me the keys and to give me directions on how to get to the apartment. We arrived with no problem and the apartment was larger than I expected, which is always good, extremely clean and I can honestly say pictures do no justice to how beautiful it is. After our first night he checked up on us and made suggestions as to what we could do and where to find information about places.
We had some issues in the building but as soon as I informed Carlos he took care of it. I felt safe and had an amazing time.
I would definitely recommend staying here, if you're looking for a place to relax you won't be disappointed. Beach is very clean and private, and the few other people I met there were super friendly.
Thank you Carlos for helping make this trip a memorable one. Hope to stay here again soon.
We really enjoyed our time at Carlos beach front apartment. Carlos and his wife were very friendly and responsive and answered all of our questions. They met us promptly and told us about some cool local events to check out. The location is great for walking on the beach and swimming in the ocean. Every morning, I'd wake up, jump in the ocean, go for a walk, then take a dip in the pool. The apartment has everything you could need for a vacation. Upgrading the fixtures and furniture would take it up a notch.
The place is roomy and has a beautiful view of the ocean. The kitchen is huge and has a washer and dryer in the pantry area. The bathroom was roomy. The master bedroom (the only one we used) has a great corner window that looks out over the ocean. The sound of the waves crashing outside makes it a great experience.
We loved staying at Carlos' condo unit. It was exactly as described, perfect for a family of four or five. Carlos was easy to communicate with via phone, email and text. He met us and led us to the unit which was most appreciated since we got there after dark. Carlos gave us local recommendations and went out of his way to make it a perfect vacation. We loved having the option of swimming in the pool or sea, being in a residential neighborhood, having easy access to wonderful casual restaurants and varied beaches and the lighthouse. The breeze off the water was fantastic and we miss it already as we returned to a world of white snow!
Nos encantó el apto de Carlos! Bien tranquilo, frente a la playa, cerca de todo y con todo lo que pudiésemos necesitar. Definitivamente volveremos! Gracias Carlos por tu hospitalidad y confianza!
Nice place! A good apartment just in front of a calm beach..
Fully supplied, we found everything we needed and the best thing was sleep listening the waves ! You feel like u r into the ocean!
The only thing for people like us who like to surf is that there are no waves closer than 10min by car !
The reservation was canceled 12 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Carlos' place was a perfect place for our family. We had views of the ocean and we spotted whales twice! At night, the sound of the waves were relaxing for sleeping and in the morning we heard a rooster (not too close to be disturbing). No earplugs needed! Neighbors were quite and people at the pool were nice. We planned on swimming in the pool but didn't since the ocean was perfect!
The layout of the condo was great, easy to keep clean.
The kitchen had everything we needed for making quick meals. The only negative thing, and it is soooo minor, is that the knives could have been shaper. There were plenty of clean linens, paper towels and toilet paper.
Carlos place is right on the ocean, just like the photos. We found his place clean and very comfortable.
Running along the shore was excellent! The sunsets were stunning. During the day, the waves were calm, great for swimming and playing. We plan to return!
In this condo, we could not have been any closer to the beach without getting wet. The view was amazing. The condo was very welcoming in its décor and comfortable for our week long visit. Carlos was prompt in meeting us to obtain the keys and provided several good suggestions for nearby restaurants. He was also very responsive in replacing 2 light bulbs for lamps that were not working properly. The location of the condo allowed for easy access to Puntos which we enjoyed as well as several other beaches.
My husband, toddler and myself stayed here and were a little disappointed after reading all the great reviews of the place.
I will start with the positive things:
Carlos himself was friendly and communicated well. The beach and pool area are fantastic and exactly as pictured. The ocean was perfect for stand up paddle boarding and having a toddler. It was secluded enough but close enough to get to surf breaks and downtown Rincon. The farmers market on Sundays in the city square was great!
Negative things: Please keep in mind, I am NOT an overly cleanly person. All of the dishes were dirty when we arrived. They were put away with old, hard food stuck on them. The pots and pans were oily and looked like they were only rinsed off, if that. There was 1 roll of toilet paper and 1 roll of paper towels. The rest were locked in a closet that we could not get to. My husband needed to work remotely and the wifi was down or barely working the majority of the time, so he was unable to work. There were bugs and spiders everywhere. I'm talking from the chairs to the lamps, as if no one had cleaned in a pretty long time.
Overall, we were expecting something different and what we encountered was what felt like we were couchsurfing in someone's place that they are currently living in. It would have been great if the place was clean :/
