Property management was awful
We were staying south in Diminical and left that property early trying to arrive by 5pm on check in day. Not being from this area we didn't realize that it was a holiday weeekend and that traffic was atrocious. I arrived at the wrong Special Places of Costa Rica as there were no addresses on the emails that I didn't recieve until I got internet at the De CoCo office. Kevin was very kind and informed us that we needed to go to the Potrero office. He even called the Potrero office to let them know of the mix up. Unfortunately, the contact person (Juan's manager) wasn't available and apparently had zero intention of checking us in even though we had already paid the entire balance. We arrived in {otrero at 10:30pm and called every phone number available to us while outside the SPoCR office. Even though the contract said we could check in as late as 11pm for an additional charge... We had to find other accomodations for the night. Thank goodness Margaritaville had one room available for emergencies and took pity on us. Other than not being granted a refund for the first night... the actual property was GREAT! Magnificent views and lovely, spacious, modern home. We loved the home. Unfortunately, check out instructions came late the evening before checkout and even though I emailed back with questions regarding garbage placement (no dumpster evident) and where to leave the keys... I didn't get a response until I was already out of the area. I dropped the keys back at the SPOCR office and placed the garbage neatly by front door. I apologize that the cleaning person had to deal with it since I wasn't aware of where to place it. Be warned... Home is FANTASTIC, management company was NOT.

Let’s do it again!
Property was perfect for our trip. Great views from this home. Close walk to playa Penca. Pool for the days when you want to stay close to the house. The management company was super responsive when our coffee maker broke, they had a new one for us by morning. Truly as advertised.

Ocean view! Spectular Sunsets! Great Pool!
Can't say enough. Every part of our 5 week stay was perfect.. Staff at Special Places very professional. They can take care of all needs and wants, just let them know. ( A special thank you to Phem. You took excellent care of us and met all our many questions with accurate assurances we needed to make this a special trip.) The condo is well kept, and the pictures on line of the condo were very accurate of the ammenities. This was our 1st time in Costa Rica and would love to return. We hosted our son-in-law and daughter and their 2 little boys. We had all we needed in house to meet all our needs. We were able to find what we needed at grocery stores in area. The Local farm market is a gem and fresh fish is available there too, and with the grill on the deck we ate very well..The pool was a very well used and enjoyed by our family. The hill climb a good work out! The area beaches are very nice and quite, we had time to visit all of them. A favorite was Conchal and Danta very close by and be sure and keep a close eye out for monkeys. We saw them finally at Playa Danta on 2 separate visits. The food in the area is also very good, and the people are wonderful. A rental car is a must, although some people rented golf carts to get around, and that worked for them. Gas carts worked best as battery carts can run out of power. The roads are good from airport to condo all paved, but many roads are dirt or gravel, off the main roads with potholes, but driveable. Be prepared for a dusty and sandy vehicle. We had a Nissan car and it got us around on all our adventures. We traveled to Monteverde Cloud forest by car. Beautiful! Take a guided tour to spot the animals. Plan an overnite trip as the road in is partially paved then gravel. Visit the artist of Guaitil and take the time to have them show off there skills of making Pottery in their open fire kilns. Take a trip to Lola's on Playa Avellanas for a real nice beach side stop off lunch as well as another Costa Rica Outstanding beach. In case you haven't figured it out we found this is truly a piece of Paradise. The Bradleys from Michigan....

Very nice. Absolutely worth the money.
One of the keys to a great villa rental is good beds! This condo had great beds for everyone; big rooms and plenty of space for two active kids and two adults. We needed a little help to get to Playa Penca but it is only a 5 minute walk (right out of the complex, down the dirt road, left at the "gate" in the fence). Whole place was very quiet; restaurants were super and the people very nice! Hint on driving from Liberia: If you don't get a 4x4 make sure you take the longer, fully paved, route to the condo. Especially if it's been raining! We truly enjoyed our time and the help of Special Places. Would use them again! Chris B.

Villa is beautiful! Ocean view is breathtaking!
Villa is beautiful! Ocean view is breathtaking! Bedrooms are large and comfortable, plenty of towels available. Short walk from 2 best beaches of Costa Rica. The area is very safe, and property owners were very helpful. We got excellent customer service.

The Perfect Vacation!!
This was my first time to Costa Rica and we had a trip of a lifetime! The villa was so nice, spacious and breathtaking views! Every morning we woke up to the sounds of howler monkeys and birds, made breakfast and enjoyed it out on the porch over looking the ocean. Nothing is more spectacular and peaceful! The villa is so close to several amazing beaches- it was hard to choose which beach to go to for the day!! We met up with Walter Marchani to do a morning of SUP (stand up paddle boarding) and snorkeling. He brought the boards/paddles and the snorkels and showed us a great time! The villa is also close to several great restaurants- The Beach House, Coco Loco and The Shack, to name a few. It was easy to get food from local food markets if you wanted to cook in. The kitchen is stocked with everything you can imagine + a grill. Can't wait to go back!!!

An Slice of Coastal Paradise
We loved every minute of our stay at this wonderful spacious villa on the Gunacaste coast. It was very comfortable and secure. Waking up to the spectacular views and the sound of the local wildlife was simply paradise. Our three older teenagers loved having their own space and hanging out at the infinity pool. The location was ideal for exploring the many beaches along the coast with easy access to a variety of restaurants and local stores. This was our first time to Costa Rica and we loved it!

VERY NICE PROPERTY
PROPERTY WELL MAINTAINED AND NICELY FURNISHED. BEAUTIFUL VIEW OF BEACH AND BAY FROM ALL ROOMS. LOVELY DECK WITH GAS BARBQ - NO LIGHTER TO LIGHT IT THOUGH POOL WAS CLEAN AND REFRESHING AND ALTHOUGH ON SMALL SIDE WAS ADEQUATE.PROPERTY WAS VERY QUIET AND PEACEFUL PLACE - BUT SOME ISSUES WITH BARKING DOGS AND ROOSTERS AT NIGHT AND WEE HOURS OF MORNING THAT IS WHY I GAVE IT A 4/5 . LOCATION WAS CONVENIENT TO FOOD STORES AND OTHER BEACHES AND RESTAURANTS. RENTAL CAR IS A MUST. NOTE: BE CAREFUL WITH RENTAL CAR AGENCY AND FEES FOR INSURANCE- WE GOT TAKEN - THRIFTY RENTAL FRANCHISE. APPARANTLY ONLY BASIC INSURANCE IS REQUIRED AND REST IS COVERED BY CREDIT CARD COMPANY - AMERICAN EXPRESS. AREA IS GREAT FOR LOCATION TO BEACHES AND PROXIMITY TO AIRPORT. MANAGEMENT VERY RESPONSIVE TO SMALL ISSUE WE HAD. WE ENJOYED - COCO LOCO ON PLAYA FLAMENGO EXCELLENT FOOD ON THE BEACH. WE KAYAKED WITH WALTER MORENO AND ALTHOUGH OUR TOUR WAS SHORT HE WAS AN EXCELLENT GUIDE AND WE ENJOYED IT. BEACHES ARE CLEAN AND SWIMMABLE - PLAYA CONCHAL AND PLAYA FLAMENGO WERE OUR FAVORITES WITH PLAYA PENCA IN 3RD. WAVES COULD BE ROUGH BUT STILL ABLE TO SWIM AND ENJOY WITH SMALL CHILDREN. SAW LOTS OF JELLY FISH OFF PELICAN ISLAND AND SAW SOME WASH UP IN WATER IN CONCHAL BEACH TOO. DID NOT SEE WILDLIFE- WENT TO THE MONKEY FARM JUST OUTSIDE TOWN AND IT WAS GREAT FOR KIDS TO SEE RESCUE ANIMALS.
