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.

Very relaxing, secure and beautiful.

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful place to relax and melt away stress! I followed the excellent directions completely in the dark on my arrival from the SJO airport. Our family was amazed at the beauty of the area and the home was equally fantastic. It was set up with everything and more that could be desired. I opened the balcony doors and could hear the ocean and was just able to make out the orientation in the darkness. I will never be able to describe, but will never forget the feeling I enjoyed when I awoke the following morning and looked out the balcony window. It was absolute paradise and I quickly woke up my sleeping family to experience it with me. We all sat shocked at the experience of beauty before us. I thought it would disappear, but of coarse it didn't and it seemed that this was heaven. Needless to say, nobody wanted to leave and to me, that says it all. Thanks again to Yvette and this unforgettable experience.

Golden Reef is in a remarkable setting. Our condo was exactly as described, clean and spacious, and the owner was exceptionally helpful. We were provided with a ton of information to help us discover the area. Thank you!

As beautiful as it looks online, the reality is even better. We enjoyed our stay thoroughly - grandparents, parents and small grandchilden. It was perfect - beaches weren't crowded, the pool was gorgeous, everything top notch.

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!
