AGUA DE LECHUGA A 103
First and foremost the best thing about this condo is Elizabeth! Despite this being the first time my wife and I traveled to Central America she made us feel at home. Prior to our arrival she discovered that the A/C wasn’t working and just minutes after we arrived at the condo she had a technician on the problem and 30 minutes later it was fixed! She greeted us with a nice bottle of wine and freshly cut flowers in the condo which was a nice touch and then went over stuff we needed to know about the condo (WIFI, Laundry, Pool hours). Because she had my phone number and new I would be using it while on vacation several times during the week she checked in with us via text to make sure we had no further questions. As far as a property manager Elizabeth is a Rock Star!
The condo itself was clean and very cozy. Overall it is not much bigger than a hotel suite. All the furniture was comfortable and clean. There were ample clean fluffy towels and extra bedding. In the bathroom there was a nicely tiled shower, sink and cabinet. The only blemish was that there was an extra curtain rod along with a mop inside the shower that we had to move when using the shower. The kitchen area was clean and had a microwave coffee maker, and electric stove with enough pots, pans, dishes cups, glasses and utensils for the stay. Be sure to check out some leftover supplies before going shopping, we ended up buying coffee filters then discovering a batch of them in the cabinet. Just off the kitchen is a 4 seat dinette and a “breakfast bar style” counter. The living room area has a couch and a wall mounted flat screen. Basically everything you need for a short or long stay.
Although there was a private patio area off the slider to the bedroom that area seemed a bit “municipal” because there was a direct view of the of the trash dumpsters . Although the patio was gated from the street it lacked a sense of privacy- so we didn’t use it at all.
Elizabeth had placed the patio furniture pool side. Now the pool was a treat! Long enough to swim morning laps, with an infinity pool design that made it very high class. There was a shallow wading pool area and then a deeper pool with a swim up bar with underwater barstools. My wife and I enjoyed having a beverage or two (self-supplied –there isn’t an actual staffed bar there) in the evening while we swam and floated in the pool before bedtime. This was an excellent way to cool down before bedtime. The pool was our favorite and only needs to have some exterior tile work to be completed to make it perfect!
The condo was located about a 5 minute walk from downtown and 5 minute walk from the beach. Because the condo complex is located in what appears to be a residential community mixed with some villa type rental properties the streets leading to the beach and to town have a rural feel. You can get to the beach without having to walk by any touristy shops and you can get downtown similarly. Once the main drag you’ll have the full tourist experience if you want it!
The one thing we missed out on was locating the beach club associated with the condo. We were never able to find it! But that fact did not lessen our enjoyment of the condo or our vacation!
If you are looking for a non-touristy getaway where you and your partner can just chill and relax this condo is definitely the place to stay. The condo was quiet, secure (gate access with code) and clean! And the only thing better than the pool was Elizabeth the property manager! Pura Vida!

Eli Rentals have been looking after our property in Playa Hermosa for the past 18 months and we could not ask for a more reliable and efficient manger. The owner, Elizabeth Teran, is extremely
professional in all matters and looks after our best interests at all times: she goes above and beyond! However, she not only looks after us as property owners, but she responds to any problems or complaints regarding renters with speed and honesty. We can not recommend Elite Rentals highly enough, thank you Elizabeth.
I am Mario Corzo an owner of a condo in “Agua de Lechuga” Guanacaste, Costa Rica.
When it comes to property managers there is no one better than Elisabeth and Lucrecia.
The Elite Rentals team are the best, they are professional, prompt, honest,efficient
and must of all they produce results. I purchase my condo two years ago, the prior manager
of my condo did not get me not even one rentals in 18 months,
Elite has rented my condo almost every week since they began managing my condo,
my rental/customers have great comments about there services,
Cocomarindo #37 (February 15th to March 4th, 2016)
I had to leave the hotel where I had reserved because it ws so noisy late into the night. I contacted Elizabeth and she offered me #37. It made such a difference to be able to sleep in a closed bedroom in this quiet little complex. I enjoyed the friendliness of the tourists, the tropical layout, the size and design of the pool, the cleanliness and high maintenance standards and the closeness to the beach ( a 5-minute walk) and to Coco, a 10 – minute walk to the restaurants, supermarkets, banks, bus stops and souvenir shops with various local markets on the way.
24 hour guard , decent price considering I was in a bind. It was a jewel!
This is the fourth year I have used elite rentals and specifically dealt with Elizabeth Teran and I can’t say enough of how wonderful she has been.She always stays in touch making sure everything is going well.Over the years any problems that have arisen have been promptly addressed and resolved.I would highly recommend Elite Rentals to anyone looking to enjoy their Costa Rican adventure.Five Stars in my book.
In the 20 months that my property has been managed by Elite Management @ Rentals, I could not ask for a more reliable and competent agent to take care of my condo in Pacifico. The owner, Elizabeth Teran, is a woman of integrity, and that is important in this profession. I truly believe she looks after my best interests, and goes above and beyond what any property owner could expect. No one works as hard, not just for me but the tenant as well. Elizabeth is smart, honest, and well…..just the best !
We are condo owners in Coco Beach. We had others looking after our condo at one time with some not so good experiences. We turned to Elite Rentals with Elizabeth. We find her very efficient, honest and very helpful. She looks after renters and will respond timely to any complaints or problems. She is able to book anything you want, transportation to and from airport including any tours. She is helpful and kind. She not only looks after our condo but our renters in a professional manner. Booking with Elite will insure you have a great time in Costa Rica.

My own experience since some years now, in which I gave the management of my apartment in
Cocomarindo,Playas del Coco, Costa Rica to Eliterental Services has been very positive and
satisfactory. They always keep me updated on all the things regarding the management of the
unit. Reporting occurs every end of month. In particular I deal with Elisabeth Teran who is
always so kind and responsive on any questions I ask. I definitely recommend Eliterental.
After purchasing property in Playa del Coco we
Were fortunate to meet both Elizabeth and Lucrecia
From Elite Property Management. Elizabeth has demonstrated her abilities to look after all of the tasks related to managing our condo, and to provide advice as we are learning our way around wonderful Costa Rica. We feel confident that our property is in good hands when we are gone and have gained a friend as well

Elizabeth was very helpful from our first contact. Prior to my arrival she was in touch with useful information, answering all of my questions and offering assistance. On arrival at the condo she greeted and helped me get settled. During our stay she was always accessible and responsive any time we had a question and even after my departure was in touch. She is high energy, professional and completely trustworthy and I would welcome the opportunity to stay in one of her condos in the future.
CHello Elizabeth,We were very pleased with the service offered during our stay at our condo AGUA DE LECHUGA A 307, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. We really appreciated your presence when we arrived at the condo and explained the operation of everything. Throughout our stay, you knew how to answer our requests, our needs. Afterwards, Catharina was very kind and helpful in bringing us what we could miss. Upon arrival, we had everything we needed in terms of bedding, sheets, towels, two beach towels. The only thing we would have liked was two beach chairs.We would not hesitate to return so much we had a good service.Thank you Elizabeth!
