“Great place, very relaxing!”
Reviewed 15 July 2011

We had a wonderful trip and enjoyed our week in the condo very much. This is a copy of the long review I did on the Homeaway site. But one thing that I forgot to mention is that there was even a mid-stay cleaning included in our rental. This was a great benefit and not one I even expected.
REVIEW
Condo - The condo itself is extremely comfortable and I felt that it was a good value. The beds, the furnishings, the decor, all great. It was a nice treat to have AC at the beach too, not something that you find everywhere in Costa Rica. We prepared most of our meals at the condo and the kitchen had everything we needed and more. We found one item that we would have liked to have, asked John and Linda about it and the next day they brought it to us! There is cable TV, wireless internet, lovely patio furniture to enjoy the great view, even a grill, blankets, beach towels....The hosts were also very generous with toiletries, laundry soap, etc. They even supplied bottle water.

Area - The condos are a little off the beaten path and I can't imagine you could enjoy a stay here without a car. We didn't have a 4x4 though and managed fine. The condo is about a 10 min walk to playa conchal (lovely) but we drove anyway just to be able to take beach toys, mats, snacks, water, etc. We explored a different beach each day. Most were pretty much deserted and very lovely. You have a lot of beaches within 10 minutes. This is definitely not an area filled with parties, action and activity. But if you want to relax and enjoy rural Costa Rica, it's perfect! That said, there is a grocery store about 10-15 min from the condo and you can get what you need there or better, bring it from San Jose. We saw howler monkies along the road and heard them daily. We only went out to eat once so I can't really speak to the restaurants in the area.

Hosts - John and Linda really were kind and helpful. They can offer you as much or as little information about the area as needed. They have lived there for 6 years and really know a lot. They treated all of us very kindly and we truly appreciated it. We felt like guests more than customers. My only real suggestion is that leaving a book with some of their knowledge, maps, suggestions would be a great benefit to the condo.

I am happy to answer specific questions from a renter/tourist perspective if you have any: nicoleLcurtis@hotmail.com

We spent 10 days at Condor Heights Condos, We were travelling without a car and John and Linda were exceptionally good hosts. Helping us with grocery and bank runs. The area has exceptional beaches within walking distance. The condo itself, was comfortable and well equiped. Sitting on the veranda staring out at the view and listening to the howler monkeys at dusk is a memory I'll carry for a long time!

What a wonderful place in a paradaise. It is very peaceful and surrounded by beautiful nature. Our hosts John and Linda helped us with everything, which was very useful due to our lack of Spanish. One week was obviously not enough to enjoy every aspect of Costa Rica. We will most definetly return! Thank you John and Linda for a wonderful experience.

We spent a week at Condor Heights during our first trip to Costa Rica. The condo was spacious, clean, secure, well-equipped and very comfortable. The grounds were so pretty, lots of flowers blooming, parrots, and the sounds of howler monkeys.

We especially liked that the condo was so close to three great beaches, with a beautiful view of Playa Conchal from the balcony. We wanted to take part in the local community, and John and Linda were fantastic with recommendations...we got fresh caught fish delivered to the condo by the local fish supplier, great meals at their favorite sodas, where to catch soccer matches, shopping and more.

Although it is a little bit of a drive from the main road, Condor Heights is more than worth the time. The rooms were spacious, clean, and all the condo patios have beautiful, breathtaking views of playa conchal and several other beaches. And if you don't feel like going to the beach, relaxing by the pool is just as wonderfully aesthetic and right next to the restaurant!
In addition to the beautiful scenery and relaxing environment, the administrators, Jon and Linda, are equally accommodating, hospitable, and kind. It was a joy to stay at Condor Heights and I will definitely return!

This is a wonderful hilltop condo with a fantastic water view. It’s private with beautiful views and breezes and a short easy drive to beaches and restaurants. The condo is beautifully decorated, well outfitted and clean. We had 2 adults 1 child and there was plenty of room. We awoke to the sounds of the area: howler monkeys and roosters. The beds were nice and firm; satellite TV; and chilly air conditioning made the stay comfortable. Even in the rain, the pool was always refreshing. The directions the owner, provided were VERY helpful but required a pirate’s navigational skills.

We decided to stay in Playa Conchal because it was close to everything we wanted to do: snorkeling, hiking, secluded beaches, horseback riding, jet skiing and local activities (zip lines, zoo, and river tours). The location is also convenient to other beach towns, grocery stores and restaurants are within minutes away -and the complex safe and secure. Visit the Happy Snapper and get “the happy snapper”.

Thank you again John and Linda for everything. You were wonderful hosts, were incredibly welcoming and helpful. They checked with us to make sure everything was OK when we arrived and were always available for questions and recommendations.

We can't wait to visit again next summer. Stan, Maggie and Emma from Maryland
