Welcome to Plumita Pacifica, on one of Costa Rica’s most beautiful and pristine beaches.
Can you beat this value? $95 PER NIGHT!!! (or less depending on length of stay) to be right on a secluded, romantic beach in paradise!!! Click on the video that is on my website and you’ll see what I mean.
VRBO may have calculated the rates differently than I do, in the area where rates are shown for your stay, because my RATES ARE LOWER if you stay 8 or more nights. PLEASE BE SURE TO READ THE PRICE/RESERVATIONS INFORMATION in the email I have or will reply to you in to avoid the confusion that may be caused by their calculations. The VRBO system only calculates rates on a weekly (7 days) or monthly basis whereas mine gives you a lower rate for 8 more nights. For example, if you want 8 nights they will charge you $95 for all 8 whereas my actual charge would be $90 per night for all 8 nights. Please see the rates schedule posted below.
And don't be confused by the calendar you see because... I have two identical apartments, as you'll see in the video. So if the calendar shows your dates as reserved just ask me if the other apartment is available.
In the following descriptions I’ll tell you, briefly, as much as I can but here’s the real secret… they say a picture is worth a thousand words… I believe a short video may be even better. To view my little piece of paradise visit my website and click on the video.
Peace and quiet, romance and solitude all just outside your door. Step outside your comfortably and completely furnished apartment right onto a beautiful, pristine and gentle beach. Look to your left, look to your right and you’ll see nothing but more pristine beach!
Relax under the coconut palms or play in the surf. The beach slopes so gently in front of your apartment you can walk out past the breakers and still touch sand while enjoying the calm and warmth of the water. Or, if you’re the adventuresome type, surf in one of Costa Rica’s prime surf locations about 200 yards up the beach.
For your enjoyment and comfort a complete one bedroom apartment was created for people who want more out of life than a whirlwind tour of Costa Rica. Stroll on the beach, play and swim in the warm water, pick a coconut, get a nice tan, watch the pelicans fishing in the surf (maybe try it yourself), or just sit on your patio in a beautiful setting and relax to the lulling sounds of the ocean and be delighted by beautiful sunsets, flowers, and scenery.
The apartment is air conditioned, has lots of light, a complete and fully equipped kitchen, queen bed with elegant linens to snuggle into, a nice modern bathroom with marble countertops and a big shower with a great shower head. Or use the outdoor shower after enjoying the beach.
But most importantly, a spectacular ocean view. Step outside and you are on the beach!
Activities abound in and around Playa Junquillal. You’ll have an activity guide in your apartment to reference which will tell you about activities and restaurants, all within an easy walk.

About Gary Davis
Having been raised in Alaska, I began to seek out a warmer paradise. After many trips to Hawaii and the Caribbean I thought I’d take a look at Costa Rica. Wow! It’s prettier than both and far more interesting with its incredible eco-diversity. The part of Costa Rica in which I chose to build Plumita Pacifica has the exact climate of Hawaii, same temperatures, humidity and breezes but more tranquility and natural beauty. The people are warm and friendly and the country has been a stable Democracy for 100 years and is in the “emerging country” phase of its transition to a developed nation. So considering all the positives I knew I had found my paradise and learning Spanish was a welcome challenge. So here I am, enjoying my little piece of paradise, with the opportunity to share it with those who would like to sample the “pura vida” lifestyle. When you visit my website you'll see everything you're looking for in terms of living accommodations in the video. What you won't see is the fact that everything else you need is a literal stone's throw from Plumita Pacifica. Even though I have a very unique location in that it has all the romance that a secluded little paradise has to offer, I'm very close to a well stocked market and several nice restaurants as well as many different tour/tourist options, as you will see when you explore my website.
Gary Davis purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Gary Davis chose Junquillal
I chose this part of Costa Rica in the province of Guanacaste because it’s the driest part of the country and in many ways reminded me of parts of California that I love. It’s not just all dense jungle. There are many open spaces with clumps of trees and jungle covered hills in the background. Guanacaste is cattle country. I frequently see a cowboy driving his cattle and in fact occasionally must proceed very slowly in my car while he moves them off the highway. I love the rural flavor of the place. And the "rainy season" is my favorite part of the year. It's not all monsoon as the term implies... it starts around May 15 and ends around November 1 with the average day starting out with blue skies, fluffy white clouds and 3 or 4 days out of the week, in the afternoon, it will cloud over, maybe rain a little, then the next day starts out with blue skies again. Alaska is quite undeveloped and my childhood was spent in a remote location where there were very few people and Guanacaste often “takes me back” to those peaceful days. And yet from Plumita Pacifica I have access to a wide variety of vacation and entertainment attractions, as you will see when you visit my website.
What makes this Apartment unique
Here’s what is so unique about the location of Plumita Pacifica. From the property you see no other structure. You step out onto the beach, look to your left, look to your right and you see nothing but more pristine beach… no houses, no condos, no structures of any kind and usually no people. And yet Plumita Pacifica is within a few minutes walk of restaurants, a market and tour facilities. So you get this feeling of being in this romantic little place in the middle of nowhere with a view of the beautiful Pacific through the coconut palms and yet you have everything you need nearby, just out of sight!

We stayed at Plumita Pacifica the last week of Sept/17.
We came well prepared as Gary was most accommodating with answering any questions/concerns.
The condo was fully equipped with all necessities and very clean. Perfect for 2 people.
We cannot say enough about the surroundings and stunning beach,beautiful sunsets, and lush vegetation.
We rented a car and did many day trips , always looking forward to our return to our pristine and private beach. Playa Junquillal is the cleanest, most private and serene beach out of the six beaches we visited. It truly is a piece of paradise where we were able to do lots of exploring,relaxing,and making great memories.
Definitely looking forward to coming back. Thank you Gary

HI Pat & Scott... Thanks for the review! :-)
Couldn't have been a better location!
Very comfortable accommodations! Loved the quiet and virtually private beach. Gary couldn't be a nicer, friendlier guy. Thoroughly enjoyed our chats and learning about the area. We can't wait to go back to Costa Rica!
Hi Steve & Ava... thanks for the nice review and I'm looking forward to your return visit! :-)
On a beautiful deserted beach, comfy little condo, delightful host
Gary is a great host, friendly and full of information. The condo is small but has all the space and equipment two people need, very clean and neat, comfortable queen bed, big shower with rainfall head, efficient kitchen with spices and olive oil and coffee, cool a/c, big windows with a view of the beach, outdoor shower, chairs for the beach and front porch, beach front right out the door, lots of palm trees, hammock, surfing a short walk down the beach, lava tidal pools and tiny mangrove swamp a little further down the beach, lots of crabs and shells, warm ocean water, basically a slice of heaven. A grocery store and several nice little restaurants are a short drive or 10 minute walk away. Make sure you eat at the Eco Lodge at least once - dine on a balcony with a view of the surf and fantastic fish and chicken dishes at reasonable prices, great smoothies too.
Hi Steve & Ava... Thanks for the great review!... I look forward to your next visit.
Great location to the beach
Such a great place to spend the last few days of our honeymoon. Thank you Gary for being such a wonderful host. Your recommendations for food were spot on and we could not have been happier staying at your property. Location to the beach is incredible and I hope my husband and I can make it back to Costa Rica to spend even more time there!
Hi Sara & Ryan... Thanks for the great review! I hope to see you maybe when you celebrate an anniversary! :-)
Eco-tourism opportunities abound
