John and Sandy were the most accomodating and outgoing condo owners we have ever rented from. The condo was spacious, clean, gorgeous views, wonderful pools( the beach, black sandy, was jusy ok)- we felt safe in CR compared with Belize the year before. Need a car to get to restaurants but we had a driver take us to Montervede for an exciting overnight experience. I'm sure that we could have done more in the area but we had terrific sunny days and all we wanted to do was read and relax by the pool. Seranaded by monkeys which was fun. We were a family of 5 with all grown kids. Everyone had an amazing time.
