COSTA RICA PARADISE RIGHT ON THE BEACH!!!

Playa Junquillal Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Welcome to Plumita Pacifica, on one of Costa Rica’s most beautiful and pristine beaches.

Can you beat this value? $85 PER NIGHT!!! (or less depending on length of stay) to be right on a secluded, romantic beach in paradise!!! Click on the video that is on my website and you’ll see what I mean.

In the following descriptions I’ll tell you, briefly, as much as I can but here’s the real secret… they say a picture is worth a thousand words… I believe a short video may be even better. To view my little piece of paradise visit my website and click on the video.

Peace and quiet, romance and solitude all just outside your door. Step outside your comfortably and completely furnished apartment right onto a beautiful, pristine and gentle beach. Look to your left, look to your right and you’ll see nothing but more pristine beach!

Relax under the coconut palms or play in the surf. The beach slopes so gently in front of your apartment you can walk out past the breakers and still touch sand while enjoying the calm and warmth of the water. Or, if you’re the adventuresome type, surf in one of Costa Rica’s prime surf locations about 200 yards up the beach.

For your enjoyment and comfort a complete one bedroom apartment was created for people who want more out of life than a whirlwind tour of Costa Rica. Stroll on the beach, play and swim in the warm water, pick a coconut, get a nice tan, watch the pelicans fishing in the surf (maybe try it yourself), or just sit on your patio in a beautiful setting and relax to the lulling sounds of the ocean and be delighted by beautiful sunsets, flowers, and scenery.

The apartment is air conditioned, has lots of light, a complete and fully equipped kitchen, queen bed with elegant linens to snuggle into, a nice modern bathroom with marble countertops and a big shower with a great shower head. Or use the outdoor shower after enjoying the beach.

But most importantly, a spectacular ocean view. Step outside and you are on the beach!

Activities abound in and around Playa Junquillal. You’ll have an activity guide in your apartment to reference which will tell you about activities and restaurants, all within an easy walk.

Having been raised in Alaska, I began to seek out a warmer paradise. After many trips to Hawaii and the Caribbean I thought I’d take a look at Costa Rica. Wow! It’s prettier than both and far more interesting with its incredible eco-diversity. The part of Costa Rica in which I chose to build Plumita Pacifica has the exact climate of Hawaii, same temperatures, humidity and breezes but more tranquility and natural beauty. The people are warm and friendly and the country has been a stable Democracy for 100 years and is in the “emerging country” phase of its transition to a developed nation. So considering all the positives I knew I had found my paradise and learning Spanish was a welcome challenge. So here I am, enjoying my little piece of paradise, with the opportunity to share it with those who would like to sample the “pura vida” lifestyle. When you visit my website you'll see everything you're looking for in terms of living accommodations in the video. What you won't see is the fact that everything else you need is a literal stones throw from Plumita Pacifica. Even though I have a very unique location in that it has all the romance that a secluded little paradise has to offer, I'm very close to a well stocked market and several nice restaurants as well as many different tour/tourist options, as you will see when you explore my website.

Gary Davis purchased this apartment in 2007

I chose this part of Costa Rica in the province of Guanacaste because it’s the driest part of the country and in many ways reminded me of parts of California that I love. It’s not just all dense jungle. There are many open spaces with clumps of trees and jungle covered hills in the background. Guanacaste is cattle country. I frequently see a cowboy driving his cattle and in fact occasionally must proceed very slowly in my car while he moves them off the highway. I love the rural flavor of the place. Alaska is quite undeveloped and my childhood was spent in a remote location where there were very few people and Guanacaste often “takes me back” to those peaceful days. And yet from Plumita Pacifica I have access to a wide variety of vacation and entertainment attractions, as you will see when you visit my website.

Here’s what is so unique about the location of Plumita Pacifica. From the property you see no other structure. You step out onto the beach, look to your left, look to your right and you see nothing but more pristine beach… no houses, no condos, no structures of any kind and usually no people. And yet Plumita Pacifica is within a few minutes walk of restaurants, a market and tour facilities. So you get this feeling of being in this romantic little place in the middle of nowhere with a view of the beautiful Pacific through the coconut palms and yet you have everything you need nearby, just out of sight!

A RETURN TO LOVE

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I planned a short trip to Costa Rica and this was the perfect place for us. I wanted to spend time walking on the beach and holding hands. We walked a 2 mile section of the beach and never saw more than 6 people. I have some wonderful sunset photos that I will treasure forever. Gary and his staff were so helpful during our stay and when I left behind my cash and driver's license he sent an email to inform me. THANK YOU We had a wonderful time!

BEACH PARADISE IS RIGHT!

  • 5 of 5
Awesome vacation and excellent location, the beach is literally right out your front door! Great restaurants within walking distance. Gary and his staff are superb and very helpful. Plus great surf spots like Playa Negra and Lola's are a short drive away! This is a bargain, you will not be disappointed!!

GOING BACK AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!

  • 5 of 5
We were only there for a quick stay, and our first trip to Costa Rica, and we definitely fell in love. This place is worth much more than the great rates, and the people we connected with through Gary and those he referred us to was priceless. We are planning our return trip for this year we loved it so much, and that says a lot as we have so many places we want to see, but we need more pura vida before we go anywhere else! It may sound cliche but it is totally true, the vibe, the people, etc in this area are so laid back and friendly, it honestly felt like another planet!! In our short trip we got in surf lessons and a trip to the arenal volcano for some zip-lining and horseback riding and Gary's friends he referred us to were so nice and helped plan everything for us...it was a breeze!

BEST VACATION EVER - PARADISE ON THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
Gary calls his rental, Plumita Pacifica, a slice of paradise. He's spot on. We thoroughly enjoyed our eight nights of paradise at Plumita Pacifica. The room is very comfortable, with a fully equipped kitchen where we made our breakfasts and lunches. The bedroom is nice and the bathroom has a spacious shower. But what makes this place so wonderful is the view - and what a view!! From our room, which had wall-to-wall glass windows and sliding doors, we could the rolling surf and the bright blue sky. Just a few steps from our door we could take long walks on the perfect beach. During the day the palm grove provided welcome shade from the sun, and at night we had the perfect view for watching the sunsets. We even saw the elusive "green flash"!

Plumita Pacifica is a great place to see local wildlife. We saw pelicans, egrets, hawks, magpies, squirrels, lizards, jumping marlin, devil rays, hermit crabs, and land crabs. We also had a surprise visitor - a young howler monkey came within 10 feet of our door one morning! My husband saw manta rays while swimming (but don't try that if you're not an experienced ocean swimmer). We also saw a large group of howler monkeys crossing the road just behind the rental. In fact, we got better monkey photos at Plumita Pacifica than we did on the wildlife tour we took!

We were looking for the perfect place to kick back and relax and we definitely found it. We chose not to rent a car and we didn't regret it. There are a few great restaurants within easy walking distance. There's also a little grocery store where you can get basics for breakfast and lunch just down the road. A larger store is only a mile away (be sure to make that walk in the morning as it gets hot in the afternoon). Local, "tico" restaurants are only a short drive away. If you don't have a car, a local company will drive you for a small fee.

Our stay at Plumita Pacifica was one of our best vacations ever! We highly recommend it.

OH HOW I MISS PLUMITA PACIFICA

  • 5 of 5
I spent a LOT of time choosing a place to spend a few days and I do not regret my choice to go to Plumita Pacifica. The instant we pulled into the driveway we felt jubilation. The sun was just setting and every night afterwards the sunset was STUNNING.

The beach was practically deserted, which suited us. We wanted somewhere away from the party scene of Tamarindo. I am so thankful that we found this perfect place and that it was in our budget!!

The apartment was 100% perfect. It had every single thing we needed and it was clean and comfortable. It was nice to have the option of A/C during the mid-day heat. The convertible bed is nice and has a stellar view from its nook in the living room. Loved the outdoor shower and map of Costa Rica, too!

We rented surfboards nearby in Los Pargos (about 8km) and went to the Tierra Pacifica (about 1km) for groceries. There are numerous little restaurants and things to walk to, but we chose to stay in our oasis each night to eat. Gary is such a friendly and welcoming man and the care-taking family is simply wonderful...always there to help. The only thing I have to say is beware of falling coconuts!!

Thank you Gary. We'll be back as soon as we can.
