Overview

Puntarenas Villa Rental Photos and Description

One bedroom-one bathroom villa overlooking Ocean (sleep 4)

You can see the Pacific Ocean and the Manuel Antonio National Park from every room of this recently remodeled Ocean-view villa.

Updated in November 2015, this villa is approximately 750 sq.ft, which includes a very large balcony, 9ft x 30ft, with a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean, beach, and the Manuel Antonio National Park. The villa sleeps UP to 4 people if privacy is not an issue. There is a new king size bed and a new small full size sofa bed. The sofa bed is great for one or two children or one adult. Two petite adults might be able to sleep on it but only if traveling on a budget and sleeping is secondary to price.

There is also a hammock in the balcony, which is perfect for napping during the day.

There is complimentary wireless internet, 2 flat screen cable tvs, one of them is a wifi smart TV. Other amenities include: hair dryer, digital safe, 2 ceiling fans, NEW air conditioning, local art, full size kitchen with new fridge, coffee maker, microwave, stove, blender, deep fryer, pots and pans, utencils and dishes, large private balcony with seating for 9, shared pool, hot water, cable, laundry service available for $10/large bag payable directly to the maid. You will be provided with plenty of towels and toiletries for your entire stay. I will also provide you with soap and shampoo. My maid's name is Candy. You will see her at the complex. She is a very nice lady and won't mind providing you with anything that you may need during your stay.

Check in is at 3pm -or earlier depending on whether or not the property was rented the night before. Check out is at 12 noon.

There is a super market immediately adjacent to the villa where you can buy most anything you might have forgotten to bring.

There are two cupboards which I keep locked. It is here where I store my personal belongings. There is plenty of additional storage for you; including a closet with multiple hangers.

Complimentary secured parking, beach towels, bedding, bath robes, and bath towels are included. As I mentioned earlier, If you have any dirty laundry, we'll do it for $10 a large bag payable directly to the maid.

Our condominium complex has its own restaurant on premises. Its name is Agua Azul (very popular among tourists and locals alike) with great views of the Ocean. The restaurant serves lunch and dinner.

There are at least 10 good restaurants within walking distance. For breakfast, you will definitely must try Cafe Milagros, located about 200 ft from the condo. You would probably end up eating breakfast here every morning. The food is great and so is the ambience, location and crowd. They have free wifi. Cool place, indeed.

For dinner, try Barba Roja, located just passed Cafe Milagros, across the street. They have excellent food, view and probably the best Sunset around.

There are many other restaurants, which you will inevitably find out once you are here. This is a very happy town and people (tourists and locals alike) like to talk to you and socialize.

There are also 2 banks within walking distance, both with atm machine, where you can get either colones or dollars out of it. One of the banks is immediately next door.

We also have a Spa, Yoga studio, souvenir shop right next door.

The condominium complex is located at one on the highest elevations in the area. Without a doubt, It is the best location in all of Manuel Antonio, adjacent to the most expensive hotels in the entire area, including Hotel Mariposa, Issimo suites, and La Plantacion.This particular villa is located at the highest elevation within the condominium complex.

I am the owner and live in Florida. This is my second home. I don't visit it as regularly so I'm renting it now very inexpensively because, even though small, it is still extra income for me. This is not your typical rental unit. It is very well taken care of.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or comments. I am available via email and phone, 7 days a week.

Please check out the video links I have posted with this ad.

NOTE: I have another property (smaller) on the same complex in Manuel Antonio. It is a small penthouse and it is also listed on this site. It sleeps 2 people.

About Marc Gomez

I am an attorney from Florida. I bought this property 13 years ago. I have enjoyed it very much. Currently, I don't stay at the property as often; hence, my decision to rent it and benefit from the extra income.

Marc Gomez purchased this villa in 2004

Why Marc Gomez chose Puntarenas

Second home, beach retreat, in touch with local nature and culture

What makes this villa unique

You will feel like you are part of nature. Monkies can be seen and heard from your large balconies. Happy hour on the porch, overlooking the blue Pacific Ocean, is very relaxing. I am a frequent world traveler and have rarely seen a place with as much natural beauty in the world.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was an absolutely ideal spot for our second Manuel Antonio experience. Location was perfect: a quick 20-minute walk to a peaceful private beach, 1 block to ATM and rental car, 3 blocks to a local supermarket, and a block away to several great restaurants. Property was spotless and neat when we arrived, complete with plenty of clean towels, paper goods, and various other items like soap and shampoo. Plenty of room for us to unpack and spread out. Ample kitchen area with all appliances; refrigerator was spotless, as was stove and sink. Owner was helpful and friendly. Many monkeys could be seen in the afternoon hours right from our own very large porch. The view of the Ocean was spectacular. The hammock on the porch made for a relaxing afternoon siesta. I would highly recommend this for anyone wanting an ideal location, more than reasonably priced, neat, clean accommodations.

Comfy and cozy

  • 5 of 5

Overall we loved the apartment. It had all the necessities and the aircon worked well. Wifi was in and out but hey you are in CR to disconnect! We didn't realize how much road noise we would hear...probably my bad. However, the road was quiet in the morning and evening so only impacted us while we enjoyed the fantastic view. Not bad enough to stop us, just saying it so people know! Really great value for your money! Location for walking to the beach and visiting local restaurants is superb. We even saw monkeys on our walk one morning!! Would definitely recommend. Wish we were still there!

Amazing view! And the full kitchen was great!

  • 5 of 5

It's all about the view! We made terrific breakfasts to eat on the porch every morning (coffee maker, espresso maker, oven, toaster, etc) with supplies from the market that is practically next door and played cards every evening while watching the sunset. The hammock is also removable to maximize the porch space. The bed was large and comfortable and air conditioning worked fine. We loved the little family of geckos that would visit us on the porch at night ...their voices sounded like they were laughing at us :) Thank You Marc!

Incredible view, safe & convenient location, furnished

  • 5 of 5

This view of the Pacific from the front porch is lovely, an evening with wine in hand relaxing with the music from the restaurant above is wonderful. The accommodations are nice with plenty of sitting space and a furnished kitchen. Excellent restaurants within easy walking distance. Our stay was during the transition from high to wet season, so we did have a problem with ants, but the grocery store ajacent to the complex had ant killer we were able to get and help. We saw multiple monkeys each walk to the beach & once a sloth crossing the road!!! The walk back from the beach is a nice 20 minute cardio workout, but taxis are plentiful & cheap if you are too tired from swimming to walk back.

The owner makes communication with his renters a priority before and during the vacation. He takes great pride in assuring you have all the information you need to have whatever type of vacation you are interested in, relaxing or adventurous. We were so impressed with his quick response to questions. The wifi in the villa was spotty, but from the porch we had some success in connecting.

This villa comes highly recommended and we want to stay again if we returned to Manuel Antonio.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the 5-star review. I mean it!!! I'm so happy to hear that you enjoyed the property. I appreciate your positive words in regards to my costumer service. I do make that a priority. I'm a world traveler and I use Homeaway when I travel, so I know how important it is to have someone tell you exactly how to make the most out of your vacation, specially when the vacation property is located internationally. Thanks again!!!

Stunning

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was a perfect location for us. Close to restaurants, shops, convenience store right beside villa for everyday items. Villa was clean with basic kitchen essentials. Bright open room with a nice king size bed. The sofa folded down into a small bed which was average but more for a smaller person. We booked all excursions through front desk. Michael was very friendly and helpful with our bookings as well as all of the staff. The view was exactly what I wanted first thing in the morning with my coffee. The outdoor deck was awesome as well as the tunes from from Auga Azul restaurant next door which has a great view and great food. The pool was bigger than expected which was great. We would catch a bus to the beach instead of driving, it was more fun. Fantastic beach, more good eats. We really enjoyed the outdoor deck the most. Thanks Marc.

Prime condo in Quepos/Manuel Antonio

  • 5 of 5

This is a delightful, clean, and well-appointed one bedroom, one bath, kitchen, living room and deck condo in the vibrant Quepos/Manuel Antonio area. The on-site pool is refreshing and clean. Great food nearby whether at restaurants such as the adjacent Cafe Agua Azul or short taxi ride to Ronnie's Place, or purchase from small yet well-provisioned store next door. The view of the ocean is quite spectacular and the breezes through the condo are refreshing. The air conditioned bedroom with comfortable bed made for comfortable sleeping.

Nearby nature attractions include Manuel Antonio beach, the Manuel Antonio National Park (in which we enjoyed a 3-hour guided tour with expert naturalist Jason Solano) and the El Santuario Canopy Adventure tour that has ten zip lines totaling 3.8Km in length as you skim over jungle tree tops.

The owner Marc has been a joy to work with! He was patient with our several requests, including prompt text responses while we were at his condo with questions.

Michael and Kevin in the condo office were extremely helpful with recommendations and reservations for activities/tours.

Staying at Marc's place was a refreshing treat.

Very nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This home sits on the side of a hill overlooking the beautiful ocean. The view is quite spectacular. The home was very clean & well equipped for cooking. It looks exactly as it is depicted in the pictures. The king size bed is very comfortable & many pillows were provided. There are a couple of sets of stairs to climb but they were well lit at night & not at all slippery when we were wet. The building has a gate with a lock on it, so it feels very secure.
