Puntarenas Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 BR, 3 BA Sleeps 8 MAX (We will NOT exceed 8)

RESERVATION REQUIREMENT: We require that you contact us (call: 1-865-314-9905 USA or email - click Send a Message) prior to booking for additional information to help you make your decision.

Golden Reef Condominium is located within Punta Leona Hotel & Club, a 750-acre reserve in a rain forest home to iguanas, scarlet macaws, toucans, white faced monkeys, spider monkeys, sloths, coatis and more. At only an hour and a half drive, it is the closest beach to Costa Rica's capital, San José. The perfect starting point for any number of tours in the area. Most notably, Punta Leona is home to Playa Blanca, a white sand beach which has year after year won the highly sought after Eco Blue Flag (Bandera Azúl Ecológica) with a 5 out of 5 star rating – one of only 2 beaches in all of Costa Rica to garner that rating. And it's a 5-minute walk from the condo!

The condo has all the comforts of a modern home with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, washer/dryer, central air-conditioning, cable TV, internet and a very large terrace. As our condo is located on the 4th floor of the building, you will enjoy incredible panoramic views of the Pacific ocean, the landmark rock of La Leona, Playa Blanca, as well as the flight of scarlet macaws, pelicans, and numerous other wildlife. The unit has two private parking spaces located within the Golden Reef complex. Families with children will love the pool area with slide. Beach toys are also provided in the unit.

In the nearby towns of Jacó and Herradura, you will find a variety of grocery and souvenir stores as well as plenty of restaurant choices. The Los Sueños Marriott is another good choice with several different restaurants. In town there are also many places to book canopy, horseback riding and deep sea fishing tours.

NOTE: We will NOT exceed 8 guests. We can help you find an additional condo to accommodate a large group.

About Hervé and Yvette

Second generation members of the Club. Always loved the combination of lush rainforest, exotic animals, and beaches.

Why Hervé and Yvette chose Costa Rica

Beautiful views (we're THE ONLY rentable condo on the 4th floor with unobstructed views), pristine beach, interesting wild life, and only 1-1/2 hours from downtown San Jose.

Beautiful, relaxing property & launch to adventure

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Costa Rica, and this condo was an excellent place to rest, relax, and kick off our excursions. The accommodations were comfortable and peaceful with a very nice overall property and access to a beautiful beach. Flora, fauna, and surf right outside the door and off the balcony were lovely. We also were near enough to take an amazing El Santuario zip line tour in the canopy, a great hike in Manuel Antonio National Park, and to go to tasty restaurants at the main road and nearby towns. Would love to return!

The condo is beautiful. The views from the balcony are incredible. We spent a lot of time at the pool. The walk to Playa Blanca is fairly steep and difficult for my 70 year old mother and they do not allow non-club members to use the bathrooms at the beach. We saw macaws, an owl, iguanas, and coatis.

This condo was very clean and neat and new. We found the owner to be accessible and quick to respond via email and telephone. The terrace facing the Pacific was exceptional with nice furniture and fans. The Air conditioner worked well and you can leave the bathroom doors open to air condition the bathrooms. Great wifi. The kitchen had equipment to cook your food if you decide not to drive. The Pool was beautiful. Elevator worked well. You are definitely secure in this facility. The people working around the condo and manning the gates on the lane are very friendly and speak Spanish.

Twin beds were found throughout the condo and were pushed together in the master to form a large bed.

Water for showers was always warm.

The television was approximately 15 inches without any style of input ports.

The exquisite beach was accessed down the steep paved road (probably a 250 meter walk; perhaps 400 meter altitude change) with a well kept restroom and a tree shaded patio with tables and benches. There are lounge chairs on the beach. The eating grill and bar require the purchase of a pass (I don't know the cost). The beach and ocean were grand in my 60 yr old opinion (my reference is the Gulf of Mexico :-(). We snorkeled near the rocks, body-surfed and watched a turtle graze the sea-grass.

Excellent attention, wonderful condo

  • 5 of 5

The communication with the owner (Yvette) was from the beginning very smooth, she responded very quickly to all my e-mails and gave us very useful advices.

The condo has a beautiful view and is just few minutes away from Playa Blanca. It was clean, well maintained and nicely furnished. It had all we needed to enjoy our family vacation. The lift was very helpful as we were travelling with older people. Only critical point was the noisy AC in the master bedroom, but it really didn't bother us much to sleep.

We enjoyed our meals in the big terrace and experienced there the most amazing sunsets.

Would absolutely go back and recommend it to others!!!
