Why Richard & Debby Hennessy chose Puntarenas

After owning several properties in the Zona Sur area, we were lucky enough to find this property in the exclusive Costa Verde Estates. We have seen no other property with views to match what you will find here in our home.

What makes this villa unique

Bomber view of the Whales Tale, Pacific Ocean, Osa Peninsula and Caño Island await you as you sit at the outdoor granite table to enjoy your breakfast. Toucans and parrots may come by to serenade and entertain you. The 1900' elevation insures comfortable temperatures virtually every day of the year.

We designed this house especially for this lot and to suit our comfortable lifestyle. It is a great house for entertaining and we've had more than 30 guests here comfortably.

Sunrise and sunset views not to be believed

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a very, very lovely week at this mountain getaway. The house was perfect - plenty of space for our family of five with room to spare. Our college-age son really appreciated having the private guest house all to himself. The pool is gorgeous -you could sit out there all day and just drink in the ocean views. The house was nicely furnished and very well-equipped for hanging out and cooking meals. We especially enjoyed working as a family on one of the many puzzles and playing Bananagrams - It was a great time for the kids to reconnect with each other. Each day we woke up to the sunrise view and a variety of birds including a toucan, a mot mot, crested guan, tanagers and so much more. Even a capuchin monkey visited one day as well. On our walks around the mountaintop we saw howler monkeys, a peccary and coati. It was a wonderful place to get in touch with nature. It felt very secure and peaceful. The owner was so easy to arrange things with and has a wonderful packet for renters with all of the information you would need.

Awesome Getaway/Adventure/Relaxation Spot- Would do it again!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here and just could not have been more impressed. As nice as the pictures are, they understate the beauty and serenity of this spot. We found the owner to be more helpful than an on site concierge could possible have been although he was a continent away. Any question was answered. All of his suggested sight seeing excursions were great. All restaurants that he recommended were exquisite and reasonable.

It could not have worked out better. We ate out only about half the time because, frankly, it was so pleasant to sit out on that veranda at night overlooking the ocean and do things at our own pace.

We were a group of 4 adults and 2 children (boy cousins 13 years old) and had so many things to do, it was

hard to choose what to do next, so sometimes we just sat by the pool and chilled. We took advantage of the local food and prepared it in the high end kitchen. Having a guest house on the property was great for 2 separate families such as ours that likes a little of our own space periodically too. The kids loved the outdoor showers and so did the adults. We were so impressed by the kitchenware that we came home and immediately ordered a set of the dishes that the owner has there. Just little touches like this make things very special. The locals were all extremely nice to us and we always felt safe in that area of Costa Rica. There was always something to do if you wanted. In short, it was an adventure none of us will ever forget.

I chose this Villa to experience the rainy season in Uvita. The drive up from the pavement is a 4x4 only route, especially after a shower. I did spend a few days at a time relaxing by the pool and cooking for myself so I did not need to drive to town every day. The Jolly Roger bar is just a couple km down the road and I had many excellent hamburgers there. This house is the best built that I have stayed at in Costa Rica. The privacy in the back is great and from the kitchen or front yard you can wave to neighbors as they pass by the gate. The security is very good due to the distance from town and the security gate for the community. With just the fan on in the bedroom it was very comfortable. The owners are taller than me as the master bath has tall amenities. However the main bathroom was just perfect! Even in the rainy season there were no biting insects to speak of. The house is well laid out and functional for an awesome retreat. Thanks Richard for letting me share your home.

Was perfect for our family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Great house, great location, very well appointed.

From the photos you can see that this is a beautiful home in paradise. What you can't see from the photos is the high quality of finishings and construction as well as the overall cleanliness of the property.

We stayed here with our 1.5 and 7 year old children. We had no concerns over security, the water was safe to drink and the home is very clean (we had to keep an eye on on our daughter around the pool of course).

As the owner will tell you, a four-wheel-drive vehicle is a must for the drive up the hill from highway to the house (not at all dangerous but takes some time and care).

The owner will recommend great restaurants and the local markets and stores will provide whatever you need.

We would return without hesitation.

Amazing Property with Insane Views!

  • 5 of 5

Went down to Dominical for our annual surf trip. Upon arrival at the villa we were pretty blown away by the house itself and spectacular views from on top of the mountain. Swimming in the infinity pool was an added bonus. This amazing house made it difficult to leave every day and it's open air layout made it perfect for enterataining. The house is nicely located between Uvita and Dominical with many accessible beaches for surfing. The owner and caretaker were very responsive and helpful in the event we had any questions. Overall we had an excellent vacation and would definitely go back. Thanks!

Owner's Response: We're thrilled you and your friends enjoyed our house so much. As you found, the pictures really cannot convey the incredible views, fabulous location and all that the Costa Rican Zona Sur has to offer. Please come back soon.

Pure Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Costa Rica has become my favorite destination for a tropical escape. This is the first time we rented a home and enjoyed the experience so much, we will be going back again next winter! The house is in a gated community and situated high on the pacific coastline, with 180 ocean views providing the most incredible sunsets every evening. The location is simple to get to and local to restaurants, beaches and the grocery stores. The home is beautifully appointed, with an open, airy living space and gorgeous views from every location. We loved the private outdoor showers off each bathroom. The house was designed with much thought towards visitors whether a few couples vacationing together or a family with young children.

We like to eat-in occasionally and prepare our meals rather than dining out every day. We found the kitchen had all the amenities we needed. On the nights we chose to go out, we found many wonderful restaurants very close by. If you wander a little south near the town of Ojochal we would recommend “Exotica” for a great dinner. The menu selections and ambiance are great, as is the owner Lucy!

Locally there are challenging hikes to take or just relaxing strolls near the house. The nearby beaches are beyond description and each has it’s own character whether a secluded cove with caves filled with rushing ocean water or more public ones with restaurants and vendor markets to stroll through while on the beach. Our favorite was Playa Hermosa, where we would buy the best cup of ceviche to eat while watching the surfers. Manuel Antonio National Park is less than an hour away and simply unbelievable; it was also just rated in the top 25 beaches in the world by Trip Advisor!
