About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Only 40 minutes from Liberia International Airport, La Carolina Condos are a fully gated newer 8 unit condo complex located just outside the culturally rich town of Brasilito, Costa Rica.

This Condo is 1000 SF 2 bed 2 bath with premium air conditioners in each room. The master bedroom has a king bed and the 2nd bedroom a queen, both are equipped with premium mattresses and bedding. The well appointed kitchen includes slab granite counter tops, a breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances (including dishwasher) and all necessary cook ware.

Located just over .5 miles from the beach and the town center of Brasilito, you can enjoy restaurants, souvenir shops, outdoor market and the quiet Brasilito beach. Just 5 minutes from Brasilito is Playa Conchal -- one of Costa Rica’s most beautiful beaches. A short 5 minute drive from La Carolina to Playa Flamingo where you can enjoy the beautiful pink beach as well as fine dining. Flamingo is also a marina where you can charter a boat for some of the best sport fishing in the world.

Tamarindo is just 20 minutes from La Carolina where you can find shopping, restaurants, beginner surf, and great night life. You can drive to the incredible, active Arenal Volcano which has some of the best zip line tours in the country in 3.5 hours. Also 2.5 hrs to Lake Nicaragua and the oldest town in the Americas, Granada Nicaragua! Playa Grande is only 15 minutes away and has the most consistent surf in the country. Playa Grande is also home to the protected Sea Turtle nesting site. See 6' leatherbacks laying eggs in the sand on the protected beaches of Playa Grande. Or journey north to the secluded beaches of Playa Danta, Playa Penca or Playa Azucar (sugar beach).

We searched all of Costa Rica looking for a home that had a quiet and relaxing Pura Vida (Pure Life) feeling but was close to all of the exciting things to experience in Costa Rica.

Enjoy all the comforts of modern living and the beauty of the country at your convenience.

About Roni Froelich

We purchased this condo in 2008 after traveling the world and falling in love with Costa Rica. We absolutely love the Pura Vida that encompasses Costa Rica. We have thoroughly enjoyed making Brasilito the second home for our family and hope you come to find the same joy we feel when we are here. We live in Northern Colorado and enjoy traveling, camping, fishing, hiking, snowboarding, & boating.

Why Roni Froelich chose Brasilito

Brasilito is a sleepy little beach town with a great atmosphere. Everyone is nice, and happy to be enjoying life. You hear the phrase "pura vida" (pure life) daily.

It is also very accessible, close to many world class beaches and resturants, and very safe.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is very quiet and the grounds are very nicely landscaped and maintained. We have a 24 hour on site care taker, Pedro and a fully fenced community. It feels like home.

Great vacation in Brasilito

  • 4 of 5

Two couples totally enjoyed our stay in Brasilito. Brasilito is a typical Costa Rican town on Brasilito/ Conchal beach. The people here are so friendly and helpful. Within walking distance of the condo were the super Conchal for groceries, the Aqua y Sal Bakery, the Italian Sodita, Lucy's, Brasilito and Conchal Beach and many other sodas and restaurants and small stores.

We loved this location as it was central to many beaches, restaurants, towns but then we could return to our condo to relax by the pool, barbecue and visit in the rancho. Internet at the condo was great and we were able to stay connected to our families. We did buy a Kolbi SIM card and found it invaluable for Waze for driving directions. Directions really are interesting. The condo is 150 metres from the old gas station!

Flamingo Beach became our favourite go to beach and is only 10 driving minutes. playa Potrero , Penca, Catalians are also close by. Within 30-45 minutes you can get to Tamarindo, Playa Avenillas, Playa Grande/Baulas, Minas, Real, Playa Coco, Liberia, and much more.

We did 2 tours. Loved the Palo Verde Boat tour. We were fortunate enough to have a white faced monkey visit looking over at us from the roof of the boat.Typical lunch at Coyote Ranchero was amazing also as well as pottery demonstration. Also did the day tour to Nicaragua. This is a long day but interesting to see another country.

One of our favourite activities was restaurants at sunset. Gracia at Mar Vista was our favourite. Just go up the Mar Vista Road, tell the guard at gate you are going to restaurant. Go early in your bathing suits to swim in the infinity pool, have a drink at swim up bar, change and eat fantastic food and watch the sunset. Thank you Frankie and Stephane fir treating us like friends and the fantastic times there. Another favourite was Coco Loco right on Flamingo Beach. Amazing ambiance and good food and drinks. Very popular so go early.

There are many many restaurants to enjoy in the area and we didn't have a bad experience anywhere .....

The condo itself was a great place to return to. Roni, the owner, is easy to communicate with and answers any concerns immediately. There are a couple of maintenance issues but Roni is aware and working on them. We couldn't believe how soundproof. You would never know there were people living in other units nor could you hear between bedrooms. There is pretty much everything you need to be able to cook, clean etc in the condo.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great location, just minutes from the beach, grocery store and town square. The condo is nicely equipped and comfortable for a family of 4. The pool and lounge area was perfect for the days we stayed home to relax. We will definitely be back.

Nice place but the house lacks maintenance

  • 3 of 5

The Condos have a very good location between Brasilito and Flamingo, Potrero and other beaches. The swimming pool area and surroundings are fine. The house is very well equipped, they have everything you could need, but the maintenance is not good. The doors of the bathroom are in bad condition but the worst part is that they are really dirty. They do not clean them at all! The hedredon of the king bed was really deteriorated, I could not believe it. The door of the room was difficult to close. It is a shame there is not a good administration by Tropical Homes, somebody to check upon cleanness of the place.

Owner's Response: Anabelle, I am so sorry to read this. I tried to be very accommodating to your stay, I went way above and beyond for your requests. You did not mention any of these maintenance items to me during your stay or I would have had them addressed immediately. I have let the management company know and they will be taken care of. I wish you well on your future travels.

Great Location!

We have been to Costa Rica several times and stayed in various places but La Carolina was perfect! It was clean and affordable but most of all it is a great location for all the prime beaches and restaurants. We will be back!
