Costa Rica Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

RESERVATION REQUIREMENT: Please contact us 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.

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!!!

Muchas gracias por permitirnos usar su apartamento, lo pasamos muy bien, el apartamento súper acogedor. Lo único como lo convérsanos fue lo del aire acondionado, pero sin mayor problema. Y lo de la trampa de grasa. De nuevo gracias, esto no se me puede pasar la vista es espectacular.
