About the property

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

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 home base 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.

Feel free to call or WhatsApp: 1-865-314-9905

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

I can't say enough about the owner,Yvette. She helped me coordinate one of our best vacations ever with her vast knowledge and insights of Costa Rica. Her condo is one of the best that we have stayed in. Starting from the spacious interior which includes a large open concept entertaining area and an amazing outside living space which has the best views of one of the best beaches in Costa Rica. Also the condo is very clean and well taken care of. You won't be disappointed with your choice to stay here. Thanks again Yvette.

This property and the unit itself were absolutely a dream, the area is quiet and very relaxing with nature all around it. Although we traveled with a big group we all had plenty of space to find our quiet zone and share meals and time together as a family as well. The owners were always extremely helpful and detail oriented about the property and things to see and do in the area. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in Playa Blanca. Thank you Yevette and Herve!!!
