Ocean Front property, 2 bedroom, 2 bath, private setting, gated secure property, seconds to beach, and SPECTACULAR SUNSETS. If your looking for all of the above and MORE, you will be pleased with your choice of staying in our beach home at Playa Venado. Accommodations are nicely suited for a small family, 2 couples, honeymoon, anniversary, or a much needed romantic get away.
We are about an hour and 1/2 from LIR (Liberia, Costa Rica) with great connections from Atlanta, Houston, Miami, Charlotte, Denver, L.A. Dallas, etc. Most major carriers have LIR as a destination. Good connections from Europe as well, with flights into LIR and SJO (San Jose, Costa Rica).
Your day will start early, sunrise and sunset are about 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. annually. We are located about 8 degrees North latitude, which makes for the minimal sunrise/sunset deviations. Our weather makes for a perfect fit as a winter get-a-way whether a week or several months. It's our summer when it's winter in North America and Europe. We typically have a mini summer in June and July.
If you like to fish, bring a surf rod and reel for an enjoyable morning of fishing in front of the house. You can also charter one of the local off shore fishing vessels and try your luck at catching Marlin, Sails, Tuna, Dorado, Wahoo and many other game fish that migrate thru our Costa Rician waters.
Spend your day on the beach, at the pool, or do some exploring on a day trip from the house. There's plenty to do if your so inclined, or just relax at the house for that much needed break from stress, and that same old routine.
There are many restaurants only minutes away if the chef in your group or family requests a morning, afternoon or evening off. If your looking for nightlife, Junquillal is not for you. Our community is laid back, we do not look for nor see disco lights among the stars. Our sunsets are looked forward to each evening, for socializing and talking about your days experiences and activities. Most locals, and tourists a like watch the sunset with a favorite beverage at Adriana's, the sunset bar. You may prefer to watch the sunset from our veranda, enjoying a quiet evening, pool side with your family, friends, or your newly acquainted evening guests. What a perfect time to prepare the 'catch of the day'.
Our grounds keeper, Felix, arrives each Wednesday and works from 6-11 a.m. making sure the grounds are meticulously kept. Our pool is cleaned and treated Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays each week by Osvaldo.
We limit the number of occupants in the house to 4. If you are a larger group, we do have condos for rent, and have 2 available (side by side) for larger parties. Our condos are about a 10 minute walk form the beach house. Please bring your own pool/beach towels, we request the house towels be left in the house. We have a WiFi connection for your internet convenience. The phone will work for all incoming calls, local and from abroad. However, our out going calls are limited to calls inside Costa Rica. If you need, or have the possibility of needing to call out of Costa Rica, bring an international calling card.
Due to the uniqueness of the property, we require a 5 night minimum stay, 50% of the rental amount as a deposit to hold your reservation in advance of your stay. If we are notified that you wish to cancel your reservation not less than 90 days prior to your arrival date, we will gladly refund 50% of your deposit and will refund 100% of your deposit if the house is re-rented. If a cancellation request is received inside of your 90 day arrival date, we will make every attempt to re-rent the property, and if so, will refund 100% of your reservation deposit. We require a cash $300.00 key, damage, and excessive cleaning deposit at check in. The cash deposit will be refunded to you back in cash at check out after a brief inspection, providing there is no damage to the home, it's furnishings, and is left in a reasonable 'lived in condition'. Our property manager, Barbara will advise you as to how she requests the home to be returned. Check out is 10 a.m., allowing our maid service ample time to prepare the home for our next guests. Barbara is minutes away, and will assist you with any questions or needs. Due to some flight schedules with late evening arrivals into LIR (+/- 8:00 p.m.) and early morning departures from LIR (+/- 8:00 a.m.) we request your check in to be no later that 7:00 p.m. and your check out to be no earlier that 7:00 a.m. We recommend your arrivals and departures, from LIR, to be early afternoon. The afternoon arrival and departure times are the most convenient for you and our property manager, Barbara. If your scheduling require late evening arrivals and early morning departures from LIR, special arrangements will have to be made with Barbara.
I've had several questions regarding the property. The house and pool are private. Our pool is NOT shared with any other property or residence.
We hope our Beach Home is everything you expect it to be, and are sure you will enjoy your stay at our little piece of paradise. Hopefully we have a chance to meet you at sunset!!

Lori and I have been coming to Costa Rica since 1998. We return annually for several months at a time, and enjoy the company of our many local friends as well as friends that visit, as we do, each and every year.
We purchased our beach lot a few years after our first vacation to Costa Rica, specifically, Playa Junquillal. As the years went by, and our flexability to stay several months at a time increased, we built our beach home. To this day, it has a very special spot in our hearts, and has given us an uncountable number of unforgetable memories of our years at Junquillal. We hope you have an opportunity to visit and enjoy thei 'special' location as well.
Our lives have truely taken a 180 degree turn since we started visiting Costa Rica. The ability to relax, enjoy 'our' beach, lounge in and by the pool, read the books we never seemed to find time for, watch the spectacular sunsets and enjoy our 'Old and New' friends each day, has added many years to our lives. You will enjoy the same, and wish your stay had been longer.
