Puntarenas Bungalow Rental Photos and Description

Bungalow, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Enjoy the simple pleasures of this Pacific view setting where visitors can devote the entire day to doing nothing. Sleep to the sounds of ocean waves or cool yourself in the Balinese style master bedroom with super AC and/or ceiling fans. Stroll in the daytime to view the abundant wildlife near the property full of birds, monkeys iguanas and butterflies.

If more activity is your pleasure, you can surf just steps away, swim in the pool or take a canopy tour just 1 K from the bungalow. Provisions and shopping are a scenic 15 minute drive away in Jaco where you will find restaurants to suit any taste, bars and casinos.

Bungalow #19 has every comfort including a 4 poster queen bed with down pillows. The second bedroom has a double bed and 2 twins and each bedroom has a full bath. A comfy full length sofa can make a great bed for a single sleeper.The kitchen has whatever you need for gourmet cooking or preparing tropical drinks to be enjoyed on the large upper lanai while you watch the sunset.In addition to the amenities listed there are also tv's in each bedroom where you will also find a lockbox and telephone for local calls. Ceiling fans and Acs are throughout the bungalow and porch for comfort.

The upper screened balcony has hand crafted tables, chairs and chaise just waiting for a party. If you prefer to dine on the lower patio you will find a rustic dining set,double hammoch and barbeque next to the 2 car carport under the bungalow. The rancho is always available next to the pool for meeting and sipping with the visitors from the other 25 bungalows who may be in residence while you are there.

Security should not be a worry with 24 hour management and security guards at night. The managers can give you advice about tours to Manuel Antonio or Carara National Parks, deep sea fishing, golfing and other areas nearby to visit. A rainwater capture system insures sparkling, clear water in the bungalow even during the rainy (green) season.

About Elizabeth Wright

I visit the bungalow 2-3 times each year to assure that the bungalow is kept in tip top condition. I formerly lived in Costa Rica and have many friends here. I love meeting with old friends at the pool and making new friends with the bungalow visitors.

Elizabeth Wright purchased this bungalow in 2003

Why Elizabeth Wright chose Puntarenas

I love this beautiful country. This bungalow has the feeling of being in a tropical jungle with it's miles of remote beaches yet civilization is just a scenic 10 minute drive away.

What makes this bungalow unique

This bungalow is situated on one of the best surfing beaches in the world. Eco- friendly Costa Rica has the beauty and contented people to give it a #1 rating in a recent survey of the best places in the world to live.

Perfect beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

The pictures and description do not do the place justice. The bunglow is a minute from a perfect, quiet, black sand beach, an amazing spot to enjoy the water and watch the sunset over the Pacific. The bungalow itself is beautifully furnished and just perfect as a base for exploring the Pacific coast -- just 10 minutes to Jaco, an hour to Manuel Antonio, and less than two hours from the San Jose airport. My girls didn't want to leave and can't wait to come back. And thanks so much for introducing us to Ronald, who was a wonderful tour guide for our day at Manuel Antonio.

Excelent Bungalow

  • 5 of 5

The property was cleaned and well-maintained. It had very cool decorations. The beach is about a two minute walk, though there are many others nearby. There are great restaurants I've enjoyed not ten minutes away. Going in Jaco is a must (and about an hour out). The people in neighboring bungalows were all very nice. Overall, I would recommend this to anyone looking to come visit Costa Rica.

The deep sea turtle sancturary is located at the end of the beach road past the bungalows. Interesting methods shown to conserve these endangered turtles.
