Owner Testimonials

Pure Surf Costa Rica

Casa Azur

We have had the PSM Team manage our house since last August. On the very first day, the refrigerator broke and they had a repairman there in no time at all and it was fixed the same day. A good thing too since we had renters arriving.

Their cleaning and landscape crews are outstanding and photo document their work.

Just last month the pool guy spotted a leak and the PSM team got it repaired, the pool regrouted and all at a surprisingly reasonable price.

We have consistently been pleased with the level of service and responsiveness we receive. Far and away the best management we have ever had in Costa Rica.

~Lloyd & Greg

Pure Surf Costa Rica

Villa del Mar

PS Management is always "on it" and available. They are so well connected that whatever you need (service or product) from the mundane to the obscure, they can find. They are a pleasure to work with, easy going, prompt and professional. Most importantly, our guests love them. We could not be happier with their service.

~Eric

Buena Vista Villa

PS Management solves and fixes any problem very fast. Picks up the contact fast, as well as helps the guests in every possible way. I am so far from Costa Rica, so your company is a big help, helping to pay everything, payments of the house and care of the house. Your company is really flexible.
