The condo has an amazing view. That said, it was not enough to overcome the rude property manager and the ant infestation in the master bed/bathroom. When we notified the property manager of the problem she said that it was Costa Rica, get used to bugs. Then I showed her the video of the ant infestation and she sent us a can of raid for my husband to spray on the walls and floors where the ants were then I showed her the video of the ant infestation and she sent us a can of raid for my husband to spray on the walls and floors where the ants were crawling. We sprayed every day that we were there! The second bedroom was missing sleeping pillows and pillow cases. Also, we asked for napkins/paper towels, toilet paper, garbage bags. She told us that the first one was included and we would need to go to the store and buy more for our five-day stay. Another issue, check out is set at 11 AM. We asked to check out between 1130 and noon, but the property manager told us she would charge us for another full day rental if we stayed over because she had other guests coming at 4:30 PM. Unfortunate for the owner of this condo, because we would’ve loved to have come back for the amazing view, but the property manager was so difficult to deal with that I would not recommend this condo rental to others.
Manager response:
We are sorry to read you did not have a better stay here. We had sprayed the home recently and were surprised to hear the bugs had come back. Due to the time of night, and the home being occupied, the best we could offer was the spray. We do only provide a starting amount of supplies and apologize if this was upsetting. We also apologize we were unable to offer a late check-out due to incoming guests; there is a small fee associated with late check-outs, but you would not have been charged since late check-out was not an option. Thank you!

We had a great stay! The view is worth it all! The space is very modern and well-kept. We had a hard time finding where to place the trash, but after searching around, we found it at the bottom of the driveway. We thought the middle parking area worked best for our unit. The town is a short drive, plenty of grocery stores around. Locals were wonderful and so accommodating. We will definitely stay again!

I love the view and the close proximity to the beach. I loved the amenities such as the plunge pool on the balcony, the upgraded kitchen appliances, and the decor was very modern.

Upon first entering this house you are very impressed with it's clean state and breathtaking view. The master bed was firm but quite comfortable. The kitchen appliances were modern and of nice quality. Also, Carolina, the rental manager was very nice and quick to respond to my texts. Now for the bad: The front door wouldn't stay closed without engaging the lock, which was a nuisance when we wanted to go in and out quickly to tend to the grill. After a couple days of use, the master bathroom sink started emitting a horrible, unbearable smell. It appears the bathroom sinks have no P-traps in their design. The balconies have an incredible, beautiful view but there was only one, metal outdoor chair to sit on and it wasn't very comfortable. We stayed during a high wind season and it sounded like the roof was going to come off. With every gust of wind we heard loud metal crashing sounds all through each night. A lot of loud, relentless barking dogs our first night too. While the place was furnished, it lacked warmth and personality. It felt like a staged home that no one has ever lived in. Also, there weren't really any kitchen staples to cook with - like salt or cooking oil. I don't like to complain but I wish someone had told me these things before renting this place.
Manager response:
Thank you for your review. The arquitect design of this house is minimalistic. The emphasis of the design to showcase the incredible ocean view and nature of Costa Rica. We will consider your comment and add more details.

Very nice location on the top of the hill, good space enough for 6 maybe 8 people, the photos show exactly what you get. The only problem is to get to the parking lot on a small car, but you can use a public space on the side, which get that problem solved. I can really recommend to everybody.
