Overview

Puntarenas House Rental Photos and Description

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

Are you ready for an escape to paradise? Look no further than this 3 bedroom, 3 bath vacation rental in the gated community of Costa Del Sol. Whether you enjoy waterfalls, zip lining, hikes, surfing, long walks on the beach, awe inspiring sunsets, or simply relaxing pool side, you are sure to enjoy this vacation oasis.

Playa Bejuco is a quiet and relaxed community nestled between two popular tourist areas: Jaco and Playa Hermosa 25 minutes to the north provide easy access to shops, restaurants, bars and world class surfing, while Quepos and Manuel Antonio 30 minutes to the south provides ample opportunity to view Costa Rican wildlife such as sloths, howler monkeys, white faced monkeys and an abundance of other species. Great restaurants, bars and additional surfing options can be found 1 kilometer north on the beach in Esterillos Este (a great walk or easy drive), or 15 kilometers north in Esterillos Oeste, a small village with groceries, great restaurants and less technical surfing options. 10 kilometers to the south is Parrita, a very typical, less tourist / surfing focused town, with banking, hospital, and grocery shopping, as well as local fruit / vegetable stands, bakeries and butcher shops.

Playa Bejuco is designated a Blue Flag beach, the highest designation provided by the Costa Rican government for its sheer beauty. Whether you are one for an early morning stroll or like to take in the sunset, you are likely to have the beach all to yourself save for a few surfers.

The house is fully equipped, including; private backyard pool, covered palapa, sun deck with umbrella, BBQ grill, new energy efficient AC and fans in every room, washer/dryer and dishwasher. There is also a communal pool and covered BBQ area which is great for meeting others within the community. The house is perfect for family and friends, accommodating 6 people, with overflow for up to 8.

We look forward to your visit!

Pura Vida!

What makes this house unique

The property abuts an open area with a creek, attracting a large variety of birds to the nearby trees, including scarlet Macaws, as well as white face monkeys.

Morning walks on the beach, surfers at sunset, relaxation and time with friends. The local activities and festivals are always fun.

It is so easy to fall into the spirit of Costa Rica, making this country truly unique.

Lovely 3-Bedroom Home Close to the Beach!

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely and comfortable in a secure neighborhood within walking distance to the beach. The owners took great care in the decor and provisions

to insure a quality experience for vacationers. The pool was a great plus - the kids spent the hot middle of the day in the pool while the adults rested and read inside! We loved being able to have friends and family over for home-cooked meals - the open kitchen/living/dinning space was perfect for our gatherings.

The bedrooms were quiet and private with separate baths - kids could get up early and adults could sleep in!

The owners provided ample household instructions and area suggestions & tips in a big packet before our arrival.

A real Paradise -Tropical Oasis

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this home last December and enjoyed very much this Tropical Oasis. It is a beautiful comfortable house located in a secure gated community. We were in walking distance to a wonderful beach and great central location for traveling about & seeing the sights. The house was very clean and comfortable, we enjoyed it very much. We found this house through HomeAway and the communication with Shawn (the owner) via email was efficient, she answered all our questions quickly and we booked right away. Marvin was very helpful. The listing description and the pictures accurately depict the setting of the home and its facilities. I would recommend bringing or renting boogie boards. Very relaxing, a lot to see and to do! I would refer this house to anyone that wants a perfect location to towns and the beach!! Thanks again for a great vacation.

An Oasis in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an absolutely wonderful time staying in this lovely home. It truly exceeded every expectation. The house is in a gated community only 400 meters walk to the beach down a quiet dirt road. There is a community pool close by as well as your own private pool in the backyard.There are a few restaurants within walking distance and a small market for necessities. Otherwise this area is blissfully free of any tourist traps. The beach itself is palm tree lined, goes on for miles in either direction, gently sloping and has the warmest dark sand great for shelling and sand dollar hunting (not to mention gorgeous sunsets) with hardly another person in sight. Now the house- wow! Beautifully decorated and fully stocked with everything you could need in the kitchen and throughout. So handy having a locking safe to store items and feel fully safe, as well as the decorative iron on the doors and windows for added security. Although I must say we felt completely safe in the community and every neighbor we met was so welcoming. The backyard oasis had several areas for relaxing by the pool and enjoying morning coffee or evening cocktails. If I have any complaints it's that the backyard is so comfortable we had a hard time leaving it to head to the beach! And an even harder time heading home. We'd definitely rent this home again, the owner was always available by email to answer any questions, but otherwise left us alone to enjoy paradise!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented this home for ten days and loved every minute of it. It is a beautiful comfortable house located in a secure gated community where the locals are extremely friendly and helpful. We were in walking distance to the beach and great central location for traveling about & seeing the sights. The pictures for the home accurately depict the setting of the home. It is an added bonus to have full access to a local US phone in the house & the wireless Internet. The local beach is wonderful!

I would recommend bringing or renting boogie boards & having Daniel hook you up with Safari Canopy Tours (lots of fun). Sooo much to see, sooo much to do, and sooo relaxing!!!

Daniel(property manager) was more then helpful and getting water and other amenities we needed. I would refer this house to anyone that wants a perfect location to towns and the beach!!

Two Weeks in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this property for two weeks in May 2013. We were 2 adults, a 4 year old & a 9 month old. The house was exactly as the photos displayed, and we were greeted by a property manager who walked us through the features. The appliances were up to date and worked great, and there was even a washer & dryer. Each room had an A/C unit and ceiling fans.

The yard was enclosed with a shrub fence for privacy, and an additional chain link fence (hidden by the shrubbery) for added security. The swimming pool was a comfortable size, and the smaller hot tub (without the additional heat) was perfect for the kids. The water was warm enough even for the baby.

This was our first time renting a house, and the entire process was quite simple. The owners answered all my questions before booking, and sent me an info package that they also made available at the house. There was WIFI (which was fast) and a phone in the home, as well as satellite TV. The house was well stocked, a maid came and cleaned once a week, and there was a guy who took care of the pool.

The community is gated, and the fantastic communal facilities were well maintained. The beach is an easy walk, located just outside of the main gates, although with the baby, we drove. The beach was clean and often abandoned except for a few surfers. It was calm enough close to shore that the kids could go in. There is a hotel just down the road, and the food was excellent. They were even able to accommodate my gluten free 4 year old.

It is possible to get a shuttle to the community, but if you're planning on seeing some of the country, I would recommend renting a car. The owners can recommend a few companies, and I think it was worth it. It's a drive on highways for the most part, on paved roads. There is a small store in the community, but to get groceries, or go anywhere to sightsee, a car is highly recommended. There are small communities nearby, but bigger towns are at least a 10-15 min. drive.

There are great beaches, National Parks, surfing, and other activities a short drive away. We visited Jaco, Manuel Antonio, Quepos, Dominical, Tarcoles, San Jose, & more, making day trips from the house with two little kids in tow. The location is quiet, but close enough to amenities with a car. There is also a bus just down the road.

I will have photos & reviews of local amenities on Celiac Baby! if you want more info. coulditbeceliac (dot) com.

Highly recommended.
