About Gwen Morris

We are from Alberta Canada and since owning our condo, we spend three months each winter and escape the cold. It was new construction and was completed in 2008. We would like to welcome you to our home in this tropical paradise!

Gwen Morris purchased this condo in 2007

Why Gwen Morris chose Cantón Carrillo

We love the relaxing atmosphere away from the fast pace of the more busy tourist locations. Looking for the night life? Playa Del Coco is only a few minutes away with numerous resturants and bars with live entertainment or visit the casino.

Playa Ocotal is our favourite beach but there are oh so many beaches all waiting to be explored. Father Roosters restaurant is located on the beach and offers great food and drinks.

Playa Del Coco is the Hub for your shopping, entertainment and services and Playa Ocotal lets you unwind and relax. Sit back with a cool one at the pool or dance the night away! The best of both worlds!

What makes this condo unique

Worry free airport pickup and delivery is offered, for a much smaller fee than taxi service. Includes stop to pick up a few groceries to get you stay started,

Located in the first circle of the condo complex, it is easy to walk to town or the beach with no worries of climbing up to the higher levels of the complex upon your return.

Our unit has some of the best front and back views in the complex. From the front windows and balcony enjoy the mountain, pool, tropical plants, and birds. From the kitchen Dining bedroom windows, a pretty back yard with daily visits of tropical birds, iguanas, and occasional howler monkeys. Howler monkeys are regular visitors to the Dolce Vita Villa La Colina complex in the trees leading back to the dry forest.

Because this is our home 3 months of the year, you will find all you need for your day to day use in the kitchen, barbecue, laundry, bath and beach. The washer/dryer in our unit means you will not have to worry about the availability of use in the shared laundry facility.

All shopping, service and entertainment amenities are located only a few minutes away by car, cab, golf cart, bike or a slightly longer walk.

comfortable well maintained

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights in this condo which had all the amenities we required - cooking facilities, washer/dryer, air conditioning, nearby gym, comfortable bed and pool. Gwen gave great instructions to get to it and was super accommodating wrt check-in and check-out time. One note of caution - the road from CoCo to Ocotal is like an obstacle course - narrow with many pedestrians, bicycles, scooters and cars weaving in and out - drive carefully!

Great Condo in a convenient location

  • 4 of 5

The condo had everything that we needed for our stay. It is located in a well maintained beautiful complex and we spent a lot of time around the pool, just outside our door. The complex is located between Playa Coco and Playa Ocotal and we walked between both locations. We loved Father Roosters and the beach at Playa Ocotal. We did the Congo Trail ziplining, a sunset sailing tour and a day trip to Nicaragua, all arranged through Plus Papagayo tours. Gwen was great to deal with and we would highly recommend this condo and this area for a vacation. Costa Rica is a beautiful country and we will be back for a longer period next time.
