BEACH AND OCEAN FRONT CONDO CLEAN! UPDATED UPSCALE

Playa Junquillal Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

SUN, SAND & SURF

The unit is located on Playa Venado, within 50m (150ft)of the high water mark. Playa Venado is one of a handfull of beaches that has received for the past 7 years the coveted 'Blue Flag' designation, the highest standard for quality achievable as determined by the Costa Rican authorities.

Relax in the comfort of the large well appointed lanai overlooking the beach and watch the constantly changing seascape with a 120 deg vista. Bask in the gentle, warm, dry breezes as you watch pelicans soaring in formation over the beach then diving for lunch. The secluded 1 1/2 km Playa Venado beach calls out to be walked at low tide to search for sand dollars and seashells during the day.

If the timing is right at night, you might happen upon a giant Leatherback or Olive Ridley sea turtles coming on shore to nest. Sixty - ninety days later you might come upon and help the baby turtles out of their sand nest and help them dash to the relative safety of the sea. If there are no turtles, stop and gaze at the canopy of stars, the Milky Way, Big Dipper, Little Dipper, Southern Cross, Cassiopeia, and thousands more as they twinkle over head while your feet are caressed by the warm ocean waters below. Bonfires at night, sand castles during the day, snorkeling on the black lava reef just in front...lots to do on and around the beautiful beach.

Inside, enjoy the well appointed modern, fully equipped, kitchen with big island, great for gourmet entertaining or prepping an intimate dinner for two. Large wrap around windows bring the sea to you as you linger inside.

The newly renovated decor features rich Cristobal a local wood, in the kitchen and all the baseboards, marble on the floors, comfortable rattan furniture, modern window treatments and lovely local art pieces. Each bedroom has it its own air conditioner and ceiling fan to ensure your sleep is comfortable regardless of what it is like outside. High quality linens add to the enjoyment. Both bathrooms have been renovated in the same style as above.

Unit #3, is part of a small 18 unit condo complex that has a large 25 m pool and tastefully landscaped inner court yard with a variety of palms and flowers which attract a number of colorful birds. Comfortable chaise lounges and chairs make for great sun worshipping space or even more decadent, lay about in the pool in our floatees. A built in pool bar is great to sit at to watch the magnificent sunsets and even,if you’re lucky,catch a fleeting glimpse of the elusive 'green flash'.

There is a full time English speaking caretaker to help in emergencies and the English, Spanish, German speaking property manager for unit #3 lives a few minutes away. It is a safe, gated community with 24 hour guard coverage.

Why John Latham chose Playa Junquillal

Sun, sea and golf in a quiet, laid back, rustic, eco-friendly environment, in a very stable country with a great climate, is what attracted us to Las Brisas, Playa Junquillal, Guanacaste, and Costa Rica. Playa Junquillal, a small, laid back, tranquil commmunity of only 100 full time residents that swells to 200 during their summer...Dec to March. Although off the tourist trail, it is just over an hour away from the closest international airport, Liberia, with lots of airlines arriving from multiple US, Canadian and European destinations. You can keep yourself busy every day or just soak up the sun and read that pile of books that have been calling to you for months. The weather is ideal 85 degs F +- 5 degs, /29 deg C +- 2 deg, with no rain from mid Dec to mid April. Typically, the humidity is around 40-50%, with warm, dry, winds blowing offshore during the early part of the day ...very pleasant and it helps set up the waves right off shore for surfers. In the late afternoon, the cooler breezes blow on shore.

The abundance of flora and fauna makes this a bird watchers haven. Zip lining; rafting; kayaking; mud baths; thermal pools; volcanoes dormant and safely active; trekking by horseback; mountain biking; history and culture tours; river expeditions; sunset cruises on catamarans; golf; tennis; offshore fishing for tuna, snapper, and sail; night life and shopping; are available for 1/2 or full day trips. If golf attracts you, a challenging Mike Young designed course at Hacienda Pinilla, is 30 min away with special pricing for unlimited family weekly play.

What makes this condo unique

The new Supermarcado in Junquillal has most food stuffs, but if you need some harder to get NA/European foods, Tamarindo or Santa Cruz, both only 40 minutes away, have bigger stores with greater variety.

There is an array of great restaurants within 45 minutes of the condo...local Tico and upscale foreign run places cater to most palates at reasonable prices. The local watering hole, Adrianna's, is great beach bar to stop at sunset to have a cold Pilsen or Imperial. Meet the locals, Ticos and snowbirds, and find out more about the attractions of Playa Junquillal, new restaurants, or new spots to visit.

Unique, Private Oasis

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this beautiful condo on our honeymoon. The condo is an end unit and practically on the beach. We really enjoyed walking on the beach, it was so private, the only life form we saw was a dog and small sea creatures, it was like our own private beach. The balcony was so relaxing with the roaring waves and sounds of nature. We would go back and stay here in a heartbeat...

Spring getaway

  • 5 of 5
We recently returned from a wonderful week. The condo was very nice with all the amenities needed for self sufficency. The grounds are well maintained and the pool quite large with warm water. Great proximity to the beach and a good view from the balcony. All the furniture and appliances were top notch. The road into the condo is quite bumpy and I would recommend renting a ATV to better get around. We went on a day trip to the rain forest and I would suggest making this an overnight excursion. It was too far and the roads very rough for one day only. Lots of good restaurants a short drive from the condo. Anyone looking for a quiet getaway, beautiful beaches, perfect weather and 1st class accommodations I would strongly recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: We are very happy that you had a great time in our piece of paradise. Yes we agree with you that an SUV is the better vehicle to travel in Costa Rica.

Paradise

We stayed 18 nights & thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it. The beach was amazing, the view from the lanai was breathtaking & the condo was fabulous. The condo was equipped with everything you could ask for, and decorated beautifully. The location was perfect for a relaxing & secluded holiday. Long walks on the beach & quiet dinners on the lanai with options of nearby restaurants. Would definately recommend this unit to anyone.

Pure Paradise

  • 5 of 5
The ultimate vacation spot if you are looking for true relaxation on your vacation.
We have traveled Mexico (both ocean sides), Cuba, and St Lucia and this has to be the best vacation spot we have found. This Las Brisa condo is in such a secluded private secure location you can walk to the pool or out to the ocean in your bare feet. There was so much to do there that we did not wander far from the complex. All the people @ the condo are very friendly and welcoming to make suggestions or recommendations if you need anything, along with John & Sue (owners) that offered to pick us up some groceries at the condo for when we arrived...nice touch. They also phoned to see how we were doing. Loved the fact that a Fish Truck and a Baker truck comes by the complex so you can have fresh amazing goodies and seafood. It felt like we were the only ones in this complex, very private. The condo was amazing, everything said in previous reviews in so true. Thanks again John & Sue for sharing your paradise with us.
We will definitely be back to experience more of lovely Costa Rica.

Paradise on earth!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a true getaway, here it is. A perfect combination of luxury and peace. The location is absolutely stunning. Sun, sand, and surf, fantastic for swimming and waves enough for boogie boarding, or surfing. We had the entire beach to ourselves, loved it. The kids found shells, crabs, and we saw a baby leather back sea turtle making its way to the ocean. If you've had enough ocean there is plenty of shade by the pool. At night, it gets so beautifully dark, it is easy to spot the constellations.
The condo itself is very clean and comfortable with all the amenities for a couple or family. Beds are comfortable. The eat-in kitchen is well laid out with every appliance and gadget one would need to cook a great meal. Large patio with comfortable furniture in full view of the ocean. Comes with laundry room which is really great for families, nice to arrive home with clean clothes. Master has a large bathroom with fantastic shower and walk-in closet.
A well laid out guide book has been put together by the owners giving an outline of the condo itself and an overview of the nearby restaurants, grocery stores, and activities.
If you like to go out for lunch or dinner there are many options. Great vacation, I'd rent this unit again in a blink. Highly Recommended.
