Playa Junquillal House Rental Photos and Description
Newly renovated 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath vacation home sleeps 8-10
A newly renovated house located above a very private beach, Coco Flotante offers comfortable, elegant indoor and outdoor living spaces and magnificent ocean views.
Ocean breezes and the sound of surf fills the house, which offers spectacular sunset views from every room. Eight to ten people can stay here very comfortably, but smaller groups will also find that the home's intimate spaces welcoming and well-proportioned. The first floor offers two private master suites with king beds and en suite baths, plus a living room with TV, full kitchen and laundry. On the second floor, the beautifully appointed bedroom with queen bed enjoys its own private floor-to-ceiling ocean views and shares a double vanity bath with a spacious twin bedroom down the hall. The bar and lounge is ideal for watching sunsets.
The heart of the house is its beautifully landscaped outdoor living space, with large open air dining table, hammocks, ranchero, and intimate sitting areas just outside both of the two first-floor master suites. Relax in the infinity pool, nap in a lounge chair with palms rustling overhead, or retreat with drink in hand to a comfortable chair under the shade of the ranchero when the sun is strong.
The location is nothing short of spectacular, with unimpeded views of the Pacific and direct access to two beautiful beaches, which offer sand, surf, snorkeling, and a distinct lack of crowds.
Located little more than an hour from the airport in Liberia, or forty-five minutes from either Tamarindo or Santa Cruz, the village of Junquillal is easily accessible but not overly developed. You won’t find nightclubs and streets lined with shopping here, but if you’re looking for a laid-back, quiet, authentic setting with easy access to all kinds of options, you’ll love it. There are several excellent restaurants in the immediate area. Local tour guides can arrange horseback, zip line, or jungle river tours; and hiking, caving, birding, mountain biking, scuba diving, or deep sea fishing adventures. Just two miles to the north (a half hour walk on the beach) is the world class surf of Playa Negra. Surfing and stand-up paddleboarding lessons and estuary tours are readily available.
A five minute walk brings you to the long, flat expanse of Playa Junquillal and its Turtle Nesting Sanctuary, which has received global recognition. From the lawn of Coco Flotante watch for low tide at Playa Blanca and you’re only two minutes away from fantastic snorkeling. Palo Verde National Park is one hour from the house and Rincon National Park is two. One of Costa Rica’s finest golf courses is located a half-hour away at the luxurious Hacienda Pinilla.
