The house is a retreat away from the fast past lives we live. The ocean views are endless. The green trees and wildlife are beautiful. The people are friendly and well educated. Most locals speak a little English. The surf is fun an uncrowded. Our home is on a bluff. We are a 5 minute walk to a white sand beach. The walk back is very steep up the hill. We drive to the parking lot for the beach. It is a two minute drive. The house is located in a very safe resort of Punta Leona. Inside the resort, there are 3 restaurants, a small convenience store, and other activities. We are about 20 minutes from Jaco.

I bought this vacation home because I wanted a place that was safe, fun for my family, and most important I wanted an ocean view home near the beach. I grew up by the beach and I will always live near the beach.
My favorite part of the house is sitting on the deck staring at the ocean. It is so peaceful and relaxing. I enjoy watching the birds flying by and sometimes the monkeys come by to visit. The house is only a few minutes walk to a beautiful white sand beach. I recommend to drive because the walk back up the hill is steep. It will take about 2 minutes to get to the beach by car. If you like the outdoors and adventure, this home is centrally located. When you are out and about, keep your eyes peeled because you never know what you might see like rare birds, monkeys, racoons, etc...
