NEW FACILITY, FAMILY & PET FRIENDLY QUIET LOCATON OVERLOOKING THE VALLEY & OCEAN

Puntarenas City Cabin Rental Photos and Description

This studio unit can sleep up to 4 adults. Overlooks the valley and ocean

The property is located in the central Pacific area just up from the Puntarenas city area near the small town of San Miguel. We are approximately 1 hour from the San Jose airport or 2 hours from the Liberia airport.

It is about 15 minutes to the ocean and around 35 minutes to downtown Puntarenas.

There is an infinity pool which overlooks the valley and the ocean.

The room is fully furnished and includes a small kitchenette, bathroom with shower, 2 double beds, a small dining area, a television and sitting area outside the cabin.

There is WIFI internet and telephone available.

We have contacts with several local cabbies that speak English. They will pick you up and drop you off at the airport and will also provide tours of the local attractions for much less than the tour companies. Some of the attractions are canopy tour (zip lining), volcanoes, national parks, coffee plantations, orchid farms, fishing, boat tour to Tortuga Island and many more. We have been on most of the tours and they are good.

On any given day, from the cabin, you can see a large variety of birds with many different colors.

Taxis are relatively cheap and there is a local bus which can be flagged down in front of the property and take you down to the center of Puntarenas for less than $1. The bus lets you off at a good sized market, stores for shopping and is close to the banks with ATM’s.

Close to our property (15 minutes away) there is a farmers market open Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings where you can buy most of the groceries you will need at reasonable prices.

US dollars and the local currency (colones) are used through out the country. If you need any other information let us know and we will get it for you.

Wonderful relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5
I stayed with my husband and 6 months old daughter in Iguana Negra for few days around new years. We had an amazing time. What you pay is very low price for what you get because the quality of the place and service goes beyond what you expect. Ted and Irene are great hosts and they provided us with more than just a business treatment. We got a playpan four our baby and special dinner. The place is very clean and they take care of daily cleaning. The view is spectacular. As a new mom, having the chance to relax around the pool with that view and such a safe, private and calm atmosphere, was a blessing. The place is very close to Puntarenas and just around 1 hour from San Jose. We had a great time and look forward our next visit.

A great property with wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5
As it's described, this studio is located on the top of the mountain in a safe and very quiet neighbourhood with a fantastic view of the valley, the city of Puntarenas, and the ocean. It's a gated property, which provides that little extra feeling of security. The property is clean and well manicured with loads of birds to see. Irene and Ted, the owners take great pride in their property and it shows. The infinity pool offers a great place to cool down and a fantastic view of the valley below. The sunsets really are as fantastic as the pictures show. The studio itself is new, and while modestly decorated, it includes all of the necessities such as a full-sized fridge, stove, microwave, TV, and free access to the wifi. The toilet, shower and sink are part of another room that is a large walk in closet with lots of place to store and hang clothes. Our price included daily cleaning, which we appreciated very much.

While there is bus service right out the door, we rented a car to get around. If you want to see the real Costa Rica the town of El Roble down the hill and Puntarenas are definitely it. We used this spot as a base of operation, and were able to travel to Manuel Antonio, Monteverde, and to many other places for day trips easily, but we like driving and seeing the countryside at our pace.

Ted and Irene live in Costa Rica part of the year and are extremely knowledgeable about places to see, how to get there, etc. They have some local contacts for tours also. We didn't use them, but might when we come back. They are very considerate owners that made sure we were comfortable and enjoying our visit. They can also point you to the best local restaurants, which are many! If you like seafood, you can get anything you want at the market in Puntarenas and at any of the restaurants.

We did not come for a beach vacation, but there are miles and miles of public beaches within 30 minutes, and we took advantage of them. Remember, this isn't the Caribbean - the sand is black - but still very soft.

We came during the dry season. We will definitely be back in November after the rainy season to see Costa Rica in its full splendor.

I would recommend this property to anyone looking to stay a few days or a few weeks. We stayed here a total of 14 days.

I'm writing this review as I sit drinking my fantastic Costa Rican coffee outside our room enjoying all of the birds the day before we leave.
