What can I say … the place is absolutely stunning! Looks exactly like the pictures and possibly even more beautiful . It was spotless. You must go to the pool - the view is breathless. Hosts were very attentive and always responded in a timely manner.

The condo was beautiful - just like in the pictures - clean, very comfortable beds, spacious, well equipped. It had amazing views and we enjoyed beautiful sunsets from the deck each night. You can hear the ocean from the bedrooms and decks! The pool was so nice with comfortable lounge chairs, sunshades, the grill and bathrooms and also fantastic views. Within walking distance to two great beaches - long beaches, not crowded, excellent waves - we never wanted to leave the beach! If you're renting a car and driving around, we found WAZE worked best for directions. It's hard to find the condo complex you're first time - it has a small sign and there is a guardhouse and gate across the entrance. We missed it and later realized WAZE would have probably gotten us there. Juan Diego and Marisol from Special Places were extremely helpful both before our arrival and during our stay. If you're arriving later in the day/evening, I recommend having Special Places stock the kitchen with some staples. Juan Diego had many great recommendations of activities and restaurants that we truly enjoyed! We will definitely return!

Amazing place. Great and modernly equipped interior. Slow internet and problem with the electronic lock when closing the door. These are the only details of this wonderful apartment.
