About the property

This studio unit can sleep up to 4 adults. Overlooks the valley and ocean

The property is located in the central Pacific area just up from the Puntarenas city area near the small town of San Miguel. We are approximately 1 hour from the San Jose airport or 2 hours from the Liberia airport.

It is about 15 minutes to the ocean and around 25 minutes to downtown Puntarenas.

There is an infinity pool which overlooks the valley and the ocean.

The room is fully furnished and includes a small kitchenette, bathroom with shower, 2 double beds, a small dining area, a television and sitting area outside the cabin.

There is WIFI internet and telephone available.

We have contacts with several local cabbies that speak English. They will pick you up and drop you off at the airport and will also provide tours of the local attractions for much less than the tour companies. Some of the attractions are canopy tour (zip lining), volcanoes, national parks, coffee plantations, orchid farms, fishing, boat tour to Tortuga Island and many more. We have been on most of the tours and they are good.

On any given day, from the cabin, you can see a large variety of birds with many different colors.

Taxis are relatively cheap and there is a local bus which can be flagged down in front of the property and take you down to the center of Puntarenas for less than $1. The bus lets you off at a good sized market, stores for shopping and is close to the banks with ATM’s.

Close to our property (15 minutes away) there is a farmers market open Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings where you can buy most of the groceries you will need at reasonable prices.

US dollars and the local currency (colones) are used through out the country. If you need any other information let us know and we will get it for you.

It was a wonderful stay here!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 6 nights. We rented out 2 units for our family. We kept very busy everyday. Ted brought us to a place to feed monkeys and set us up with a boat ride to Tortuga Island for snorkeling and lunch which was a lot of fun! We visited Jaco twice during our stay once for the beach and once to go on an ATV ride. We also went to Monteverde for zip lining and hiking. It was a great location for a "home base" The units were comfortable and the pool was beautiful...sunsets were amazing. We hope to be back again!

Great place, wonderful views, friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5

I spent 6 nights in this place in Dec 2016. The room was very well-lighted, spacious and clean, well-equipped, and having a fully functional kitchen. In the daytime, there was great views of the garden and the sea below. Ted and Irene were wonderful and helpful hosts. The location is suitable for day trips to either Monteverde or the beach. An ideal place for laying back and enjoying the sunshine and warmth of Costa Rica.

Great Hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

First off, I want to say thank you to Ted and Irene. You were both more than friendly to my girlfriend and I and you were incredibly helpful as well. That being said, onto the review we go. This place was amazing. The infinity pool overlooks what may be the best sunset in Central America. The grounds are very well kept and the condos are incredibly clean. As mentioned above, Ted and Irene were super helpful. They had great advice on what to see and where to go while we were there and Ted even woke up at the crack of dawn to take us to a local spot where you can go feed some monkeys. It made our trip. I would highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a place along the central pacific coast of Costa Rica. I know I'll be back if I'm ever in the area.
