Overview

Guanacaste Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 4, up to 6 with 2 small children on futons

Villas Venado is a newer condominium project a short 150 meters walk to two of the most spectacular beaches in all of Costa Rica, Playa Junquilla to the north and Playa Venado to the south. Junquillal (hoon-key-yell) is a small Tico village with several restaurants, grocery, liquor store, sport fishing, horse back riding, and plenty of sight seeing right out your door. You may want to play a round of golf, which is 30 minutes away at Hacienda Pinilla. Your day will start early, sunrise is around 6 a.m. daily. Take a quiet walk on the beach looking for shells or other sea life before you depart for your days excursion, or just relax at the condo utilizing our spacious pool. Enjoy your favorite beverage, as the sun sets about 6 p.m. daily. The remainder of the evening can be spent at one of the local dining establishments or prepare your meal in our modern kitchen at the condo. The catch of the day will undoubtedly be one of your favorites whether you catch it your self surf fishing, on one of the local off shore charters or purchase a nice fillet from the fish truck that makes stops in our area weekly.

Villas Venado is a locally owned condominium with 8 luxury homes. The owners/builder have been at Playa Junquillal for many years. We want to offer you the best vacation possible. Come and visit a piece of paradise! If your lucky, you may see a turtle hatch at the JUNQUILLAL TURTLE NURSERY. Thanks to our local education and awareness programs, the turtle population has started to rebound. Playa Junquillal and Playa Venado are both turtle laying beaches for both Ridley and Leatherback turtles. We are all excited to see the numbers of returning turtles to our beaches continue to increase annually. It is easy to relax and enjoy life in Junquillal, no wonder a large percentage of visitors return each year. If you need a lot of entertainment and night life, Junquillal is not for you. If golf is your game, Hacienda Pinilla is 20 minutes away. Green fees are reasonable with a 30 day membership.

Contact us for special long term rates. We believe the 2 bedrooms are nicely suited for 2 couples, or a family of 4. With additional sleeping on futons, a family of 5 or 6 can be accommodated. Contact us for any additional charge that may apply for parties of 5 or 6. We also have unsold furnished or unfurnished condos available for sale. Please contact us for further details. We do offer owner financing, and will entertain any reasonable offer. Come spend some time with us at Playa Junquillal. You will not regret your visit.More pictures upon request.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

We visited Costa Rica in March. We brought our daughter and met our son who is a Peace Corp Volunteer in LaFlorida. The condo was perfect for the four of us. We stayed in the second floor unit and loved the view. There was always shade on the veranda and the table and chairs are tucked back in a corner out of the wind. We went horseback riding with Erika at Paradise Riding and she did a great job of making us "green horns" feel comfortable on the horses. We will return.

excellent!

  • 5 of 5

condo was spacious and clean and tastefully decorated. pictures are exactly how condo and views are. the pool was one of the best i've seen and the water temp was perfect and refreshing. barbara was extremely informative and helpful and jesenia's massages were the best we've had. this was my husband and i's first time in costa rica and bud was very accessible and responses were immediate which was very helpful when planning the trip. we rented a 4x4 which was recommended and absolutely necessary for exploring the area. the beach was deserted and gorgeous. we released the baby turtles at sunset on the beach with the rescue center and it was heartwarming. thank you barbara for letting us know when they were doing it. the restaurants close by were extremely reasonable priced and delicious. fruit stands on side of road were plentiful and you are kind of forced to eat healthy while you're there. we did not see one fast food place or strip mall which was exactly why we went to this part of costa rica. trip was fabulous and we will be back. thank you for allowing us to stay at your beautiful condo.

Perfect Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend Villas Venado to anyone who is looking to visit the Guanacaste area. My mother, 2 kids (10 and 12) and I stayed here for three weeks during the "low season". It was the most perfect location for us, becuause we had our own private gated property, our own pool, 24 hour guards, and were not too close to the hustle and bustle of the more busy touristy areas. We were close enough, however, to go to the busier tourist areas by car, if we wanted to. This is the perfect place if you just want enjoy the beautiful scenery and beach all by yourself or with your friends, and also for those who want to go on adventures but then retreat back to the peace, quiet and safety of Villas Venado. We were minutes aways from several beautiful beaches (we discovered some safe and awesome snorkling at Playa Blanca) and 35 minutes away from some of the best surfing at Tamarindo. We've been all over Guanacaste: all of the playas that are as close as 2 minutes and as far as 2 hours away, Liberia (1.5 hours) Rincon de la Vieja (2 hours), Santa Cruz (35 min), Nosara (1-1.5 hours), Monte Verde (3-4 hours). The owner, Alice, and all of the support staff were the sweetest most accomodating people, who responded very quickly to all of our requests and needs. We will definitely be back to Villas Venado!

Fabulous accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Our experience of staying in this condo was very positive - we loved it!

To start with the owners, Bud and Lori, gave us great directions on how to find Junquillal and their manager, Barbara, was waiting to check us in when we arrived.

The property is accurately described and is beautifully furnished with new comfortable furniture and equipped with new stainless appliances. Everything we could need was there! There were just the two of us, but the condo is definitely large enough for another couple - there was a huge bedroom and bathroom that we never used. We enjoyed the fact that there was no phone, TV or stereo because we wanted to be away from everything for our stay. The grounds are lovely and we spent many hours around the pool.

The description is accurate that the condo has a sea view, but it is really just a glimse through the trees. The beach is a lazy 10 mins walk.

Junquillal is a small community of mostly ex-pats who are amazingly friendly. It has a tiny but surprisingly well-stocked store, a couple of beach bars, and some very good restaurants. We didn't find a 'village centre' like a plaza or soccer field, and did miss watching Costa Rican village life unfold. However, we did some good bird watching, and drove to other beautiful local beaches to snorkel, swim, collect shells, and watch the surfers. We definitely made good use of our rental vehicle.

We ate at Guacamaya and Hotel Villa Serena, and had excellent meals at both places. We saw sunset at Barnardo's beach bar and the bar at Hotel Iguanazul, which are both frindly and scenic places. The sunset from El Castillo is supposed to be good, but we never checked it out - too busy having other fun with new frineds,

Would we go back? Definitely. Would we take friends with us? Absolutely.

Junquillal is a quiet village in Guanacaste, Costa Rica on the Pacific Coast. Junquillal is located just prior to a dead end road, and is away from the typical tourist hustle and bustle. We are 35 minutes from Santa Cruz, which is the largest city in the area. Santa Cruz is a typical Costa Rican town. Most locals, and part-time residents do their weekly shopping in Santa Cruz.. We do have a well stocked local grocery store for most of your daily needs. Local tour guides offer tours to the mountains, rain forests, rivers, parks, and other beaches, etc. These tours are all able to be done on day trips from Junquillal. The area is also known as a surfers paradise!! We do have a locally known surf break 10 minutes from the condos
