Good value, great beach access
Overall, very enjoyable visit, and would consider staying at Condor Lodge property again. Mark (owner) met with us during our first hours to welcome us to the property and offered advice on beach access and routes. Very pleasant and responsive to questions had prior to the visit. Here are pros and cons for future visitors to help make an informed decision:
Pros: Unit as described; I felt beach access was terrific (either a ten minute walk down a "private" gravel road, or a two minute car drive (will need to pay $4 to park at the beach)); restaurant on-site was good and fairly priced; pool area was good (but I wasn't comfortable staying there as there was a significant bee hive in the ground of the pool peninsula...didn't get stung, but hundreds of bees flew past us while we were sitting there. If we had kids, we wouldn't have let them play anywhere close to that); unit/complex was quiet; good view of the ocean/hills (but if you want a sunset view, I don't think you'll get it (certainly not in April); Mark has items for your use (beach towels/chairs, snorkel gear, coolers, kayak, surf board)...those are all great touches; good wi-fi, but hopefully you're not using it much.
Possible cons (not much for us, but for some I'm sure): Rough ride in on gravel road (about 10-12 minutes your first trip in, then we got it down to about six once we were comfortable with where we were going); unit is a little dated, but still in good condition; a $100 investment into new towels could go a long way; the bees at the pool as noted above; if you're in poor physical health, maybe not the best unit (3rd level) and beach access you'd need a car for sure; if you're expecting on-site security or gated access, don't expect it. We never saw a guard, and while there was a gate, it was always in the up positition. That being said, we always felt safe/secure.
Overall, a very good experience. If you're looking for high-end, maybe not the unit for you. We're always grateful for our yearly visit to Costa Rica, and this experience/rental was supportive of that notion. Thank you Mark for allowing us to rent your condo and for being a responsive host.
Thank you for your kind review and suggestion.
I replaced some of the older towels with new ones.
The property was exactly as described by the owner
The location and view were perfect. Beautifully quiet and close to amazing beaches. Great place to relax and unwind! Comfortable apartment with all the conveniences of home.
Our first visit
Everything was great, landlord came over and welcomed us once we arrived. Went to Adventure Park for a day. zip line, rafting, horseback riding, and hot springs.Went to 4 different beaches. A bad 4 1/2 kilometer gravel and rocky road from main artery every day in and out. Restaurant and food was great. Had a flat tire and maintenance man changed tire for me. Made back to Alamo and they repaired tire.
So glad everything was great!
There are a lot of dirt roads in C.R.
Most renters don't mind the 10 minute - 4.4 k dirt road drive to be away from the crowded areas and enjoy the great nu-crowed beaches.
The 10 minute nature drive has many animals to view on the side or crossing the road. You'll see something new every day.
We spent our 2 week Costa Rican vacation here, and loved every minute of it. The place is well located, just a short drive to many beaches, and is very comfortable with a full kitchen, and even a washer/dryer! Pretty much whatever you need to feel like you are at home. Beautiful views, comfortable furnishings, a wonderful balcony, and plenty of space.
The owner is very accommodating, quick to respond, and sounds like a nice , and caring person.
Thanks Mark, you are a great host. If we are in this area of Costa Rica, we knew where to stay!
Thank you for the great review!
Construction was in progress the entire 3 and 1/2 weeks we were there.
Construction was in progress the entire 3 and 1/2 weeks we were there. The unit next to us was completed replaced from floor to ceiling - the noise was awful. To rent this villa out was disgraceful. The owner had an agent on the property, Jolly Harbour. When we moved in we were not told that the unit adjacent was under construction. We were reassured by the owner and the agent that the remainder of the work would be completed within a few days. 24 days later it is nosier than it was when we moved in. The marble tile cutting, electric sawing was done mostly on the deck that was separated from our unit by a short 5 foot wall that only extended out a few feet. I could go on and on about the lack of privacy and the debris from the work on our deck etc. I only wish that I had a recorder that could be used by the owner when he takes his wife on a special vacation.
This renter had reserved the condo for over one month and made up this false review to try and get a refund toward the end of the month rental.
There is no agent or person here in Costa Rica named Jolly Harbour, no marble tiles and there was no construction next door. It is very quiet here. Most of my reviews are 5 star reviews.
Nice Place and wonderful view
Nice place in the near of the beach. Enough place for 4 people. The view from the balcony was wonderful.
