Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Casa Verde is a recently constructed three bedroom house located in Playa Junquillal, Costa Rica. The house is nestled within Tierra Pacifica, Costa Rica's premier environmental estate. Casa Verde offers you the unique opportunity to experience remarkable animals, flora and fauna of the dry tropical forest within close proximity to some of the most beautiful beaches you will ever see.

Casa Verde’s open design incorporates the natural surroundings of the forest, beautiful landscaping and comfortable amenities to allow you to get the most out of your visit to Costa Rica. Wake up to howler monkeys, watch the astounding array of birds and animals, enjoy the amazing plants and flowers, pick seasonal fruit from our many fruit trees or just relax in the upstairs terrazzo, living/dining room, or screened porch.

Tierra Pacifica, where Casa Verde is located, is a wonderful place to be. Enjoy the pool, lap pool, hot tub, exercise room and/or tennis court at Club Arbol. Walk the roads and nature trails within the estate. Take part in the yoga classes on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Feel secure and carefree knowing there 24 hour guards at Tierrra Pacifica.

Playas Junquillal and Blanca are only a few minutes away by car. You can also get to Playa Junquillal on foot via the beach trail. Eat at the local restaurants or buy food to cook at the nearby markets. Want to surf? Playas Negra and Avellanas are only about 15 - 20 minutes away and Tamarindo is about 40. We recommend Playa Avellanas if you are interested in surf lessons.

The downstairs layout of Casa Verde includes the master bedroom (king sized bed) with a full bathroom, the open dining room/living room area, a half bathroom, outdoor shower, screened porch, and fully equipped kitchen. The upstairs layout includes two bedrooms, each with a queen sized bed, a full bathroom, a half bathroom, a laundry area and outdoor terrazzo, half of which is covered. There is extensive tropical landscaping surrounding the house which includes many fruit trees.

When not in Costa Rica, Martha and Eric reside in another beautiful part of the world, Vermont. Martha is an artist and Eric is a musician.

Georgina Solorzano-Gordy purchased this house in 2010

Why Georgina Solorzano-Gordy chose Guanacaste

When we first came to Costa Rica we fell in love with the people and the land. After returning many times we started looking for a place to spend more time. When we came upon Tierra Pacifica, the beautiful environmental estate in Play Junquillal, we knew we had found our Costa Rican home.

What makes this house unique

We love being able to experience both the forest and the exquisite beaches of this beautiful area. There is nothing better than waking up to the howler monkeys that frequent the trees around our house. The town of Playa Junquillal is particularly wonderful because it is small, quiet, friendly and undeveloped. Club Arbol (part of Tierra Pacifica) with its beautiful pool and exercise room is state of the art and a wonderful place to hang out. Club Arbol also has a tennis court and a relaxing hot tub. We particularly enjoy walking the nature trails and roads within Tierra Pacifica and taking morning walks on the beach via the beach trail. We highly recommend the yoga classes which are held at the Club Arbol on Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Rosalia is an exceptional yoga instructor.

Awesome and Unique

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 (kids aged 9, 11, and 12) spent 7 nights at Casa Verde. It took a little adjusting to the open floor plan but we had it down after a couple of days. It was amazing to wake up early, sip coffee in a hammock, and watch the sunrise. We saw howler monkeys twice and several large iguanas either from the house or on the property. We enjoyed the nature trails. The pool is awesome!

Tierra Pacifica is a very quiet property. The gate was always guarded and we felt very safe. We dined at two of the nearby restaurants. Amigos was one. The other was at a hotel near the end of the road. Both had good food and helpful staff. The drives into Tamarindo and Santa Cruz were easy (if you stick to the main roads.)

I do recommend getting good driving instructions to find Tierra Pacific the first time. Our flight was delayed and we drove in the dark. It took us a while to find where we needed to be.

Beyond that, Georgina was very helpful and we enjoyed our stay.

A Wonderful House and Renting Experience

  • 5 of 5

The caretaker of this absolutely gorgeous house and property made our stay comfortable, peaceful and pleasant. Our favorite part about the layout of the house is that the main living space (with hammocks) opens up to the seemingly endless backyard, filled with birds and butterflies. When you are standing in the backyard you cannot see any other houses and have a fabulous sense of privacy and comfort. In the front yard, you can see the resident howler monkey that lives between Casa Verde and the neighbor's house. The fully-equipped kitchen, master bedroom (with AC), and one of the porches (all downstairs) are completely screened in to keep the bugs out. A 4X4 vehicle is a must if you want to have access to travel to the nearby beaches during the rainy season. The guards at the front gate of the community are very friendly as well. We had the best stay imaginable at this beautiful house and cannot wait to return to Costa Rica and Casa Verde very soon!

Un año nuevo muy relajado!

  • 5 of 5

Una casa muy linda, la encontramos super limpia, todo muy ordenado y equipada con todo! Las áreas sociales del condominio son espectaculares, la piscina una belleza. Tuvimos una situación con unos tubos e inmediatamente llegaron a arreglarlo, y era 1 de enero! Georgina nos dio un excelente servicio, informándonos de todo, sugerencias de restaurantes. Pasamos un excelente año nuevo en esta casa.

Bird lady

  • 5 of 5

This is hands down the best rental we have ever had. You will love the Casa verde. It is charming, comfortable and extremely well-equipped. If you like to cook while on vacation, this kitchen is well planned and easy to cook in. The owner must be an excellent designer and has painted charming plant scenes on the walls. The living/dining space is open on two sides and there are no bugs. The beds are excellent. The house is in a community that is committed to reforestation so there are a lot of tropical birds to hear and see. I have seen at least 20 species of birds from the house. There are nature paths and an organic farm in the community. There is also a club with lovely swimming pools and a jacuzzi. There are excellent restaurants nearby and the beaches are delightful whether you like surf or calm. I will definitely return.

Didn't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

I just returned from an amazing vacation in Costa Rica at Casa Verde! Where to start? The house is stunning. Between the openness of the main room to the 2nd floor patio, I always felt like I was in paradise. Although there are houses around, I could not see them and never heard anything but the crashing waves in the distance, the birds surrounding the forest around the house, and the howler monkeys making there way through the trees.

The house is fully functional with A/C in the bedrooms, a great kitchen and all the little things that make it feel like a home. My favorite is the hammocks that hang and offer a perfect place to soak it all in. I can't think of anything I else I wanted besides a few more weeks at Casa Verde.

One of the big things I wanted to mention was how friendly everyone was at Tierra Pacifica. The guards at the front gate were incredibly nice and always made me feel safe at night knowing there was someone watching out for us. The property manager was extremely helpful and bent over backwards to make sure our stay was just how we wanted it. It was like a house within a resort. We had privacy and everything we could have wanted. The pool at Club Arbol was a favorite afternoon hangout for us and being the slow season it was mostly empty. We did laps in the morning in the lap pool and even braved a yoga class right there next to the pool. It cost a whopping 8$ and kicked my butt.

As for things to do close by, if you like beautiful beaches and world class surf, this is the place to find it. We visited Avellanas and Playa Negra mostly which are only a 15 minute drive on really bumpy dirt roads. Loved Lola's at Avellanas. Great food and great beach hangout. Next trip we plan to do some more exploring but the truth is we loved being close at the beaches and just wanted to relax.

I could write a thousand more things I loved about this vacation but hopefully I've said enough to convey just what a great time we had here. We will most definitely be back next year. We are booked back here at Casa Verde for spring break and already can't wait.

Map

Local tour guides can arrange horseback, zip line, or jungle river tours and hiking, caving, birding, mountain biking, scuba diving or deep sea fishing adventures. Just two miles north is the world class surf of Playa Negra. A five minute drive brings you to the long, flat expanse of Playa Junquillal and it's turtle nesting sanctuary, which has received global recognition. Palo Verde National Park is one hour from the house and Rincon de la Vieja is two hours away. If you are passionate about golfing, one of Costa Rica's finest golf courses is located half and hour away at the luxurious Hacienda Pinilla.
