Puntarenas House Rental Photos and Description

Beach House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

*** Voted 'Best Ocean Front House on Jaco Beach' ***

The 3500 sq. feet beachfront luxury house has 5 luxurious bedrooms, balconies, swimming pool with outdoor shower, built in barbeque and a tropical garden. Most furniture and fabrics are bought locally and design is inspired by this country's charm and culture. The holiday villa for rent is equipped with all amenities you need for a pleasant and comfortable stay.

One of the best fishing spots worldwide is 400 yards away and great surfing is available right in front of the house. Marlin, Sails, Dorado, Wahoo, and Tuna are some of the fish that can be taken year round. The charters offered in Los Suenos Resort and Jaco Beach are top of the line and will help you enjoy the wonderful fishing this beautiful country has to offer.

Many Jaco vacation rentals claim that they are on or in Jaco Beach. What they mean is they are in Jaco Beach area, like South Beach in Miami is an area but you may not be on the beach. Casa Rio Mar Jaco Beach House is on the beach. There are great sunsets every night as the beach is facing south west. Sand is light brown and the beach is very gradual to the ocean.

Excellent property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Cass Rio Mar with 3 multi-generation families. The property was beautiful and the location on the beach was exactly as advertised - literally right on the beach! The pool was a highlight for the kids and adults. The beds were comfortable and showers were hot with good water pressure. We enjoyed the large kitchen and common dining/family area. Really conducive for large groups to hang out together comfortably. The property manager was so helpful - almost our personal concierge! The property is very close to town so easy to get taxis in for dinner. Really a wonderful experience!

Best house on Jaco Beach

  • 5 of 5

This is literally the best house on Jaco. You walk out back and are on the beach. Susan takes great care of you. You will not be disappointed. Susan was completely honest and refunded deposits promptly. Thank you so much for managing stay! We can't wait to come back.

“Ultralight beams” + “Awesomeness” = Casa Rio Mar

  • 5 of 5

You can see clearly from the backyard all the way through the house to the beach and ocean. I was using the grill in the backyard, but I could still see my friends cooking in the kitchen, another group of friends watching tv, and third set of friends hanging out at the pool listening to music in the front of the house. The layout of the house created the perfect atmosphere for catching up with friends and family.

Speaking of the backyard, fresh fruit trees are available for you to pick (mango was my favorite) and iguanas frequently “play” in the backyard. There is also a river in the back beyond the fence that you can observe from the back balcony. Lots of wildlife activity to observe without even leaving the property.

I frequently used the front balcony to have happy hour and watch the sunset. Jaco, Hermosa, and Los Suenos all had amazing places to grab a drink, but after a few days of exploring, I realized the villa provided the best backdrop for our group to unwind in the afternoon and early evening.

I was a little skeptical of this place before renting it. You will see the internet littered with 5-star, perfect reviews of this place. You will also see everyone raving about the beauty of the villa and professionalism of the property staff. All I can say is that it is better than advertise. The property manager, Susan, and I are basically like family now. I emailed and/or called Susan at least weekly for 5 months leading up to our vacation and she graciously accepted and responded to all my questions. I am litigation consultant so I ask a TON of questions. LOL! Susan coordinated airport transfers for our group, privates chefs, and activities for our group. She even has the villa phone programmed with Taxi numbers and her cell phone. She pretty much made it dummy proof.

The onsite staff is amazing. They will help you with anything you ask (i.e. moving a big grill from the back of the house to the front). LOL. On a personal level, every morning I talked to our security guard about life in Costa Rica. Just positive vibes. Awesome folks that work onsite.

I’m not big fan of writing notes or reviews, but I wanted to say “thank you” to Jim and Susan for making this the best vacation ever.

Thank you and Pura Vida!

We literally had 5 star service from the moment we booked throughout our entire stay. Absolutely the most pleasant people to work with, very accommodating, excellent communication. Their focus is 110% on the guest and doing everything they can for you to have an awesome vacation. We were provided with options for chef, maid service, tours, extras and transportation prior to leaving, we made selections and everything was arranged by the time we arrived. The chef we had was phenomenal and well worth it! The guards were very pleasant and helpful. The concierge was incredible and so sweet. She told us to call anytime if we needed something. We had a couple of small issues come up, one with a tour and one with transportation back to the airport. They were immediately resolved! As to the is literally the most beautiful home we have ever stayed in! We had 8 people, 4 adults and 4 kids. There was plenty of room and then some. The view is incredible, the sunsets are so beautiful, the beach is amazing and it's right there in front of the home! The pool was nice and well kept. The house has pool/beach toys, plenty of towels, the kitchen has everything...there was even coffee to get us started!! There is a surf shop next door, there is a tiki bar/restaurant just down the beach. All of us had such an amazing time!! This home is simply the BEST on Jaco Beach. The only thing we regret is not having been able to stay longer!!! We highly recommend this home and will definitely be back!!

Excellent vacation. The residence was very good. A few older elements in kitchen whichninam sure will be addressed. Staff and management as well as all the people we met were sensational. The most helpful place I have been in years. Loved it. I will return and possibly become a "tica".

We definitely stayed at the best place in Jaco!!, Right on the beach, we even walked to the clubs and restaurants any time we wanted to, private pool, surf shop next door, weather was perfect and lots of fun tours to do!

We were 15 people, some stayed at the house and the other stayed in a Condo very close to the house, the property manager helped us booking the condo and all we needed while we were there!

It is just the perfect and best place in Jaco, we have been in town many times before, and we will pick up this house next time we come!
