Experience this still pristine paradise of Southern Costa Rica rain forest, where horses still run the beaches and wild life abounds right to your deck.
Our home is nestled on 7 private acres purchased to preserve the ancient virgin rain forest surrounding it and elevated above the beach to capture the cool breezes of the afternoon and evenings and away from insects often found at beach level. Spectacular 180 degree view of the surf breaks (no surf report needed) and the entire Golfo Dulce. One of the most spectacular views in Costa Rica. Families of three different kinds of monkeys live around the home as well as many toucans, parrots and sloths. Enjoy all the sounds of the jungle as you awaken. Have your morning coffee on the deck while checking the surf breaks with all the little creatures abound and birds soaring. Soak in the beauty from the pool and watch the clouds in late afternoon gradually forming over the bay for an evening rain along with unparalleled sunsets. The surrounding deck borders the jungle a few feet away.

I am originally from California. After traveling around the world, I spent many years as an attorney while raising my children. Soon after retirement, my love of travel and adventure took me back to Hawaii and soon to Costa Rica. My partner and I explored many areas looking for the perfect place in paradise...a place that offered jungle, wild life, uncrowded SURFING, Fishing and privacy! That special place soon became Pilon Pnt. We bought the land near the ocean, brought in electric, and built a beautiful Octagon home, with 2 cabinas, cabana, pool, landscape, virgin rain forest and 180 degree view of the SURF BREAKS! We spend many months a year here and have the best memories!!
The Owner purchased this house in 2003
I wanted to build a home where I personally enjoy living. Where the people are friendly and there is so much surfing, fishing, beauty and wildlife!
The home does not only have a 180 degree view of the surf breaks.. it is surrounded by virgin rain forest with endless monkeys, parrots, toucans, sloths. I love taking outdoor showers and enjoy being part of the jungle yet near the beach. Nothing beats having a few cocktails on the deck while watching the waves and random thunder storms! Everyday is a new adventure that the whole family, including our newest additions can be a part of.
This was our second time to stay at Pt. pilon. We had parrot, toucan, and monkey parades in the trees to watch. Caretakers Scott and Maria suggested local food, transportation, and culture which greatly enriched our experiences during our 2 week stay. Maria is a great
cook! The property is perfect for small groups to gather in the main house while providing privacy when retiring at night in the main house and cabinas. The kitchen is well stocked with everything needed to prepare meals and drinks to enjoy while watching sunsets over the bay and waves rolling in the point. The pool is maintained daily and provides ample room for 6 people to enjoy. Ms. Molly is a sweet dog that stays on the property and is very loyal. If you are looking for pure relaxation-this is the place! Thanks for allowing us to rent again and we hope to return.
We were greeted in Golfito by an exceptionally accomodating and affable caretaker, Scott. The views from the house are spectacular. We wanted for absolutely nothing as Scott treated us like his own. If you are in the Pavones area and don't stay here, you are missing out. We are looking forward to getting back for more adventuring as soon as possible. Thank you again Scott!
We had an amazing time here. This was our first stop in Costa Rica and we didn't want to leave. Scott made this trip special. He answered all our questions, organized horse riding, surf board, talked about local culture etc! It would not have been the same without his help.
We loved the house, so private. Pool gorgeous and well maintained- Scott was there daily keeping everything perfect. We also used the 2 bedroom cabina for our 3 children which worked out perfectly for us.
We would recommend this highly to all our friends and hope to return one day- maybe leave our kids behind next time!
It was amazing! A little bit off the beaten path but sooooo worth it! Amazing views & cool interactions with monkeys.
The kitchen was top notch! It was clean, well equipped and well designed.
We loved it and can gaurentee we will return!
Ok, where should I begin: if you love nature, this is a parfect spot! Birds, monkeys, dolphins, whales (if you are lucky), frogs, cows, horses, dogs, pigs, insects, trees, flowers, OCEAN PERFECT VIEW OF THE GOLFO DULCE!!! Sports: the best surfing, hicking, fishing, kite surf, horsebackriding!!!
The house is comfortable with all appliances. Located up in a hill, so it is really fresh and windy. And bescause we are in the tropics, mosquitos will have a great time!!! Hahaha so bring a good repelent. I recommend to buy OFF wich you can buy local. Another HIGHLY RECOMMENDED PRODUCT FOR MOSQUITO BITTING: ALERGEL!!! Trust me: forget about itching. (I`m Tica, I know what i`m talking about)
Scott, the manager, is such a kind, friendly nice man, always looking for you to be comfortable and secure! He is really a good man!!!
Molly... oh Molly!!! We all got in love with this small dog!!! She is lovely and an excellent guard! Already missing her... She is friendly and funny, so treat her as she deserve!!!
In resume: PURA VIDA VACATION AND SURE WE WILL GET BACK SOMETIME!!!
I agree with a previous review that the photos don't do justice to the view. The house is on a hill, and the views of both sea and sky are stunning. I hardly wanted to leave the house and spent hours on the porch drawing and photographing the beautiful scenery. We saw and heard different species of monkeys, parrots, and other interesting creatures. The house was well stocked and cared for. The caretaker was super friendly and did a good job of keeping the place up, making recommendations for local activities, and even taking us through the markets at the Panama border. Great stay... hope to be back soon!
