Puntarenas House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Most unique in Pavones Rainforest Area – Real Costa Rica – A Magical Place! Girls of ESPN'S "FISH ON" and "TOTALLY HOOKED" enjoyed their stay here, more then once!

Location: Pilon Pt. near Pavones, South Puntarenas, Costa Rica, Central America (10 min,. north of Pavones- a world famous pt. break, one of the longest in the world!) (See map in linked website) Pilon Pt. is a break almost as long but few people. Very private estate visible only from the water.

Accommodations: Main House, Huge Master Bedroom Suite Upstairs w deck, l King, 2 full baths. Cabina #1 – 2 Bedrooms, l Queen, l twin, l full bath. Cabina #2 1 Queen, 1 Full Bath. All are beautifully crafted Octagons designed by a Hawaiian architect.

Escape from the cities to the beautiful 180 degree ocean, beaches and breathtaking sunsets of “Real Costa Rica”, often referred to as the end of the road. Experience this still pristine paradise of Southern Costa Rica rain forest, where horses still run the beaches and wild life abounds right to your deck.

Our home is nestled on 7 private acres purchased to preserve the ancient virgin rain forest surrounding it and elevated above the beach to capture the cool breezes of the afternoon and evenings and away from insects often found at beach level. Spectacular 180 degree view of the surf breaks (no surf report needed) and the entire Golfo Dulce. One of the most spectacular views in Costa Rica. Families of three different kinds of monkeys live around the home as well as many toucans, parrots and sloths. Enjoy all the sounds of the jungle as you awaken. Have your morning coffee on the deck while checking the surf breaks with all the little creatures abound and birds soaring. Soak in the beauty from the pool and watch the clouds in late afternoon gradually forming over the bay for an evening rain along with unparalleled sunsets. The surrounding deck borders the jungle a few feet away.

This Octagon home offers hot outdoor showers by the pool and cabana, stone floors, huge 16’ granite island separating the open kitchen and living room, marble & glass baths, custom cabinetry, mostly stainless steel appliances, dishwasher, microwave, gas stove & oven, two large crispers in addition to the refrigerator, blender, toaster and all you need for home cooking! Satellite TV, A/C, vaulted ceilings in all buildings - beautifully finished! There are five glass sliding doors in the main room alone bringing in the feel of the jungle next to you, elevated decking everywhere and off the bedroom upstairs, underground utilities, washer/dryer, gas BBQ, finished off with painted murals and gorgeous art work. Hammocks and deck furniture are by the pool. A large covered deck is overlooking the ocean. A mature orchard and new caretaker’s home are on the estate. True peaceful enjoyment without resort crowds!

Our local agent Scott is bilingual ENGLISH/SPANISH and his wife speaks SPANISH. They will meet you for check in and take you to the property and meet you at check out. They personally arrange horseback riding, offer meals, and assist you in securing other activities. Stand Up Paddling, Kite Surfing and Surfing Lessons and Tours; Sport Fishing, and Waterfall Trips. Cleaning available on request.

About The Owner

I am originally from California. After traveling around the world, I spent many years as an attorney while raising my children. Soon after retirement, my love of travel and adventure took me back to Hawaii and soon to Costa Rica. My partner and I explored many areas looking for the perfect place in paradise...a place that offered jungle, wild life, uncrowded SURFING, Fishing and privacy! That special place soon became Pilon Pnt. We bought the land near the ocean, brought in electric, and built a beautiful Octagon home, with 2 cabinas, cabana, pool, landscape, virgin rain forest and 180 degree view of the SURF BREAKS! We spend many months a year here and have the best memories!!

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Costa Rica

I wanted to build a home where I personally enjoy living. Where the people are friendly and there is so much surfing, fishing, beauty and wildlife!

What makes this house unique

The home does not only have a 180 degree view of the surf breaks.. it is surrounded by virgin rain forest with endless monkeys, parrots, toucans, sloths. I love taking outdoor showers and enjoy being part of the jungle yet near the beach. Nothing beats having a few cocktails on the deck while watching the waves and random thunder storms! Everyday is a new adventure that the whole family, including our newest additions can be a part of.

Fantastic Home, GREAT for a Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to find a place that accommodates a large family (we're a family of 7). This home was more than enough space! Scott and Maria took great care of us! Wildlife was amazing, got a daily show, compliments of the Macaws and several types of monkeys. Very comfortable and a quick 15 minute drive to the surf. Lots of 'stuff' to make your stay easy and good cell reception (for better of worse!!).

Overall fantastic stay, looking forward to our return!

Casa Pilon Rental Review - We liked it.

  • 4 of 5

I just wanted you to know that Dan and I had a lovely time at

your mother's house in Pavones.

3 best things:

1. The view

2. Scott's care of us

3. Titi monkeys looking on at us

We loved it. Scott was so helpful in many ways and we really enjoyed the horse back trip. The internet "stick" did not work for my macBook Pro but because of Maria's generosity, it was not a problem at all.

I liked the kitchen - great refrigerator - that's more granite than i've ever seen before in a kitchen!

Thank you!

Two Timer

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay at Pt. pilon. We had parrot, toucan, and monkey parades in the trees to watch. Caretakers Scott and Maria suggested local food, transportation, and culture which greatly enriched our experiences during our 2 week stay. Maria is a great

cook! The property is perfect for small groups to gather in the main house while providing privacy when retiring at night in the main house and cabinas. The kitchen is well stocked with everything needed to prepare meals and drinks to enjoy while watching sunsets over the bay and waves rolling in the point. The pool is maintained daily and provides ample room for 6 people to enjoy. Ms. Molly is a sweet dog that stays on the property and is very loyal. If you are looking for pure relaxation-this is the place! Thanks for allowing us to rent again and we hope to return.

Pilon Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We were greeted in Golfito by an exceptionally accomodating and affable caretaker, Scott. The views from the house are spectacular. We wanted for absolutely nothing as Scott treated us like his own. If you are in the Pavones area and don't stay here, you are missing out. We are looking forward to getting back for more adventuring as soon as possible. Thank you again Scott!

Kindest Regards,

Thomas Berry

We had an amazing time here. This was our first stop in Costa Rica and we didn't want to leave. Scott made this trip special. He answered all our questions, organized horse riding, surf board, talked about local culture etc! It would not have been the same without his help.

We loved the house, so private. Pool gorgeous and well maintained- Scott was there daily keeping everything perfect. We also used the 2 bedroom cabina for our 3 children which worked out perfectly for us.

We would recommend this highly to all our friends and hope to return one day- maybe leave our kids behind next time!
