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 (website hidden) in someone's place that they are currently living in. It would have been great if the place was clean :/
It was a great weekend with the family. I had to go to work but having some days off and having the beach right in front made it all worth it. We will definitely consider renting it again in the future.
We really loved this place, although we have a bit of a funny story! Within 20 minutes of arriving, the toilet flooded (I'm talking GEYSER-status here!), and we were wading through inch-deep water. Carlos' plumber had neglected something on an earlier repair and within an hour he was at the house with Carlos--we went out to dinner and when we returned the place was SPOTLESS again. It was hilarious and we were not at all upset about it--it's a great story we'll be telling for years to come.
The condo is right on the beach, which is just gorgeous! The house was stocked with lots of products, towels, and fruit (though you can pick mangos a block or so away, and there's a coco frio stand not too far as well) and the beds and A/Cs made us feel very comfortable. The pool was a nice reprieve, though we only used it once or twice. The patio overlooks the ocean and you can hear the waves roaring all night/ It's a gorgeous place and we would definitely stay here again. It's five minute drive to Rincon center, and maybe 10-15 farther toward Calypso and Tamboo, but there are decent restaurants nearby (Lucky 13 BBQ comes to mind). Carlos was super nice, attentive and communicative. We loved our trip!! Thank you, Carlos!!
