First of all - it's a great place and Mauricio is a great host, who met us in the airport, and we didn't see him since for we had no problems at all. I'm glad I found this place.
Pros: Spacious apartment with living room and balcony facing north (you can keep ac out most of the time or seat outside any time of the day), quiet ac, comfy beds, full kitchen. Territory around is guarded, unbelievably clean, green and shaded with tropical plants, has enough parking spots. Pool in the middle of the complex is just gorgeous. Gates are 20 meters from a bus stop and taxi stall, it takes 10-15 min on the bus to downtown or Walmart, lots of other supermarkets and eateries nearby, including great liquor warehouse (La Playa) with better selection and prices then any supermarket around .
Concerns: According to the map, property is very close to the street and fairly close to the beach. Although, you have to be prepared to walk. There is only one entrance and apartment is in the far corner, so add 200+ meter *2 to every trip (and back, if you want to go to restaurants or Costco on the noisy street just off your balcony). There are two public walkways to the beach, but it takes at least 1 km to get to the ocean. We are used to better cookware (bought a new pot and a knife) and shower, I also couldn't find a good chair/table combo to sit with my laptop, but again, I don't think I could have better deal. Nothing is perfect.
