Sarah and Burt built this house in 2006. It is our second home. We love the house and Costa Rica. If you rent it I am sure you will too.

My wife, daughter and I had our dream vacation at this wonderfull property. The house far exceeded our expectations and the setting is spectacular. Private beaches, a great variety of restaurants and the Costa Rica Lifestyle resulted a relaxed fun filled get-away. The house is exquistely designed to take advatage of the sea breezes while provided awesome views and a background of crashing surf. If you are looking for shopping and nightlife you might look elsewhere, but if you want a true Costa Rica vacation this is the place. Thanks for sharing your home.
My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and could not have been happier. The house is huge and beautiful, and we could sit on the upstairs porch for hours on end, listening to the waves crash and enjoying panoramic views of the Pacific. The beach is a 5-10 min walk from your door, and you'll probably be the only people there! Finally, the world's coolest and happiest German Shepherd ("Raúl") will keep you safe and play fetch on the beach! If you're thinking of staying here, do it!!
Our overall experience was wonderful. Your descriptions of places to go, see and experience was right on. We particulary enjoyed Rincon and the Zip line at pura adventura.
Local area restaurants are good and very reasonably priced. Mary's, Villa Serena and Villa - my mind went blank but it's just across the road from Mary's. You highly recommended it and I concur - we went there a couple of times. Burgers at the beach bar at sunset aren't bad either.
As far as the house is concerned, it exceeded our expectations. Liset was very attentive and kept it clean which is a real task with the dust that blows during the dry season. Eduardo stayed after the property as well. We particularly enjoyed the view from the upstairs deck - accompanied by a good glass of wine of course. Some of the kitchen pans were a little beat up but that happens with a rental. Besides, I'm kind of a nut when it comes to cooking.
I would have no reservations about recommending your house to anyone. It provided serious comfort while we were vacationing in paradise.
This house is fantastic and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a vacation home in the area. A couple of things that I liked the most would be:
1} How spacious and open the house felt. We had 6-7 people staying there and space was never an issue.
2) The wrap around deck outside. Whether enjoying a book on the large deck chairs or lounging in the hammock, the deck area provided a great place for us to just hang out and take in the view.
3) The house overall. The house's design gave off a sense of authenticity and practicality. I thought the vents/windows above the living room were quite useful and provided just the right amount of airflow to keep it comfortable within the house.
In all honesty I could not say anything negative about this house. I am extremely pleased I was able to experience Playa Junquillal and I couldn't think of a better place to stay while doing so.
The house is absolutely incredible, with plenty of space for a big family or a group of friends. The kitchen has everything a great cook needs, and while the bathrooms are nice, everyone fought for the outdoor shower. We went with a group of friends for Spring Break. Our days consisted of waking up early with the howler monkeys, taking a bike to the mini super-mercado up the road to get fresh produce, then walking the short distance to one of two beaches in the area. We'd all meet up again for lunch, then take naps on the porch (the lucky ones score the hammock). We'd usually go exploring after that, taking the canoe out into the nearby fresh waterway, or going to the bar on one of the nearby beaches. There are restaurants and great surfing spots not too far from the house, too. The house is secluded enough to be a great getaway, but is close enough to attractions and town that a group of young people will have a blast too. Check it out!
I have nothing but great memories of my trip to Costa Rica, and it was largely due to the wonderful accommodations. First, I'll give you some tips on the house. If you want somewhere that is touristy and in the middle of the hustle and bustle, this house is probably not for you. But if you want somewhere that has an incredible view, a "homey" feel, and is within walking distance to a sparsely populated beach...this is the house for you. Although it's pretty low key, there are plenty of restaurants and bars nearby if you don't feel like cooking or want to get out of the house. But if you want to cook dinner and stay in, it's perfect for that too. The house is beautiful and sleeps a pretty big crowd comfortably. It's two stories, has huge walk-in showers, a wrap around porch with hammocks all around, and a modern, fully equipped kitchen, perfect for cooking for large groups. And I really cannot say enough about the views! The house is on the top of a hill, and the view, especially from the top floor master bedroom is incredible. As far as the beach goes, just a 5 minute walk, and you're basically on a private beach. A few people may walk by here and there, but not many! It's also fun to go down the road about 15 minutes to the beach where the bars/restaurants are and hang out there for the day. There, you can order your favorite blender beverage, have some nice lunch, take some surfing lessons, meet some locals and other vacationers, etc. And since it is in a smaller town, the local people are incredibly friendly. I really can't say enough great things about this house, and if you have the chance, I highly recommend it to anyone!
House is in a remote area-200 yds from the surf in an area of fantastic natural attractions...Zip Lines are nearby--horseback riding--all kinds of fishing and world class surf beaches--great for experts or toddlers to play in the wash--
