This 3 bedroom condo was featured as a sales model for the high quality Robb & stucky furnishing package and has provided it's first owners a USA winter season escape for past three seasons. It's preferred second floor location provides a swimming pool overlook from both the living room and master bedroom deck(s). This nearest, typically adults only, classical swimming pool is separate from two other available activity pools that feature 25m lap lanes, 10 person whirlpool and children's wading area.
The open condo floor plan has a large living area perfect for family and friends to gather. Surrounded by large palm trees, the balcony has dual 10 foot koolaroo, full coverage, shades making a private outside haven. The master suite king bed has it's own large flat screen tv. The in suite master bath has two sinks and a large shower. The second and third bedrooms both have a queen bed, generous closet space and the living room sofa can be folded out to a queen size bed.
Can you suggest a car service to pick us up and drive us back from Liberia airport 15 miles (25 kilometers) away? Taxi service is available door to door to and from condo to airport for approximately $50 one way. The taxi stand is right in front of AutoMercado grocery store outside the main gate of property that someone can easily walk to and have them direct the driver to condo entry to load luggage.
Is the condo walking distance to the beach, supermarket and restaurants or should we rent a car for the week?The one of the many resort wide free parking area is directly adjoining the base of the entry stairwell. During our previous three consecutive years 2010-2012 staying in condo Nov-April we rented a car on average one weekend a month and all other times just walked, biked or took taxi (1,000 colones or two (2) Dollars between any two points in town) to all daily activities including grocery shopping, ocean beach swimming, etc.. You'll find driving in Costa Rica similar to country, rural driving in USA ... not a lot of traffic and mostly two lane roads mostly well paved, but occasionally gravel, hilly back roads will be used if your tours include Costa Rica's rich outdoor attractions. Bottom line is you can have a great one week visit with or without a car, but with a car your options are significantly expanded for touring many nearby scenic attractions. If you rent a car (available at Liberia airport , not in the town of Coco) definitely include use of rental car GPS, Costa Rica is notorious for not having streets marked with any signs.
You have several washrooms in the condo, is there only one shower? Two full baths, both with large showers. One is private off of master bedroom, 2nd one is shared via hall access back close to 2nd & 3rd bedrooms.
Is Wifi included?Yes, attached is our 'Key's to Condo' that includes the WiFi access code
Are there free gym facilities in the condo? Yes there is a local Gym right in Pacifico Retail shops by Resort front gate. No it is not free, the owner has provided discounted weekly rates to guests staying at Pacifico. Their Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/CrossfitCocoBeach
Do the pools get crowded this time of the year? There are three large swimming pools next to condo on property, pools are never crowded, but depending on time of day the resort provided free pool side lounge chairs can be in limited supply. If you pay the minimal one time $50 Pacifico Beach Club fee that covers ALL condo guests for entire week, you'll have full access to the two additional infinity swimming pools overlooking the ocean. Beach Club lounge chairs also have cabana's for sun protection. Pool side service is always available at the Beach Club for drinks and food.
Can you suggest some zip line, bike rentals, tourist attractions we can book when we arrive?Yes, after receiving your reservation to know exact dates of stay & hearing if you'll have rental car for entire stay. Even after staying in Costa Rica for over 12 months during our 3 years of winter snowbirding there we still have a list of new 'to-do's' on our next visit. Never an idle moment in this country, unless that's what your objective is while enjoying the panoramic environment.
