The photos that are posted by the owners are fairly indicative of the ground floor apartment, but some details are missing.
Owners speak fluent English and are very helpful. They live upstairs and are friendly but don't intrude.
You are right across the road from restaurants and a lovely, well kept beach.
The kitchen is small but well set up with pots, pans, cuttlery, and dishes. It has a microwave and a decent 4 burner gas stove. And a good drip coffeemaker.
The bed was fairly comfortable, as were the livingroom furnishings.
The shower had unlimited hot water.
There was a table and chairs on the front porch as well as in the kitchen.
The place felt secure, with its locking gate.
There were adequate plugins
Internet was very good
The fridge was in good condition.
The Not So Good
Screens did not adequately seal the windows. We had a mosquito problem.
The screen door had large gaps under it, also a problem for mosquito entry.
With the mosquito problem, there was no provision for the insect nets we brought with us. We had to wear inect repellent to bed
The bathroom sink leaked across the floor for the duration of our 7 day stay. Hopefully that will soon be fixed.
Floor tiles need replacing and there seems to be a termite problem.
General maintenance needs to be improved somewhat.
Overall, we have seen worse but also better at that price point. The place has an excellent location and plenty of potential. And Olon is a clean little town with good food purchasing options. Although regular busses to larger Montanita are available for $0.25, and taxis were $2-3, we walked along the beautiful beach, and over a hill on a dirt path in a little over 1/2 hour.
