Overview

Puntarenas Villa Rental Photos and Description

Playa Mantas and Playa Blanca only 3.23 km away!

Welcome to paradise! Our family friendly homes boasts everything needed to experience Costa Rica as you have always dreamed. Enjoy the private, gated community and relax by the pool...our grounds are meticulously maintained, thanks to our wonderful staff.

The community is perfectly located close enough to shopping, dining, golf, world class fishing and enough eco-tourism to keep you busy for months. This 2 story, 2 BR/2BA allows for the ideal setting...children are able to sleep upstairs, while adults enjoy the living space downstairs.

An abundance of wildlife can be seen most days while sipping a cup of local coffee on the veranda. Some of our regular visitors are the White Face, Spider & Howler Monkeys. Scarlet macaws fly over head daily on their way to the beach to feed on almond trees. Toucans, sloths, blue morph butterflies and hummingbirds also pay regular visits.

Playa Mantas & Playa Blanca are two miles at the end of our road. Both of these amazing beaches have been awarded a 'blue flag' rating. This is the highest ranking award given by CR government for cleanliness, safety and beauty. From the southern most point of Playa Blanca, you can snorkel along the rocks and see beautiful marine life...or just relax on the beautiful white sand beach.

Do you surf? We are close to the world renowned Hermosa and Jaco Beaches that offer waves for beginner and expert surfers.

Do you like to Fish & Golf? Los Suenos Marriot Resort is a 4 mile drive and offers World Class Sport Fishing, golf, shopping, dining and all US commodities (groceries, medical, bank, etc.)

Manuel Antonio, the most traveled park in Costa Rica, is less than 1 hour away. This makes for an easy day trip to one of our favorite parks in the Central Pacific.

About Beth and Bob Maynard

Buenos!

Our names are Beth and Bob Maynard. We currently reside in St. Petersburg, Florida. Costa Rica has a special place in our hearts and we are always anxiously awaiting a return trip. Because of the tranquility, stunning beauty, friendly people, and the abundance of activities, it is an amazing place for us to get a renewed sense of ourselves....to get our batteries recharged!

We KNOW you will feel the same way and we welcome your questions to learn more about Villas De La Fountain!

Beth and Bob

Beth and Bob Maynard purchased this villa in 2014

Why Beth and Bob Maynard chose Costa Rica

This property was chosen as our ideal vacation destination due to it's close proximity to the International Airport, beautiful clean beaches and tourist attractions.

We intentionally chose this quiet area, to be slightly removed from the bustling town of Jaco to allow for a relaxing, private getaway and it's central to so many attractions!

What makes this villa unique

Our Villa is situated near numerous key attractions and restaurants. Two gorgeous beaches are located just down the road, (Playa Mantas and Blanca) and there is also a butterfly sanctuary you can visit on the way. Numerous sodas and fruit stands are close by where you can experience true, authentic Costa Rican cuisine! The grand resort of Villa Caletes is approximately 4 km from us and they offer delightful dining with with a stunning view and extend great happy hour specials..... let me suggest booking a massage as they have a great spa....I have all the details for that! A local grocery store is about 10 minutes away in Playa Herradura named Auto Mercado where you can stock the fridge. This is also home to the Los Suenos Resort and Marina which is globally known as the Fishing Capital of Costa Rica playing home to Costa Rica's only full service five star Marina and home to the largest fleet of the country's top Big Game Sport fishing Captains and boats. Here you can dine at The Hookup right at the Marina! Other quaint eateries are along the beach of Herradura as well. If you are interested in seeing some of the exuberant wild life and rainforest that Costa Rica offers, boy are you in the right place! For just about 3 km from the Villa is Carara National Park. Carara is home to one of the largest remaining populations of wild Scarlet Macaw in the country! If you came to surf, well that's covered as well because we are within very close proximity to Playa Jaco, known for it's world renown surfing! And I also must mention that Manuel Antonio National Park is just about an hour's drive away and Manuel Antonio is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Costa Rica with FOUR beaches! Adventure and fun is surrounding you here...Zip-Lining, rainforest tours via hike/bike/ATV/horse, crocodile tours via boat on the Tarcoles River, wildlife & bird spotting, volcano trips, souvenir shopping, world class fishing, surfing, golfing....what more can be said?

AWESOME VACATION!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome time!! To start off, the owners were extremely responsive to our questions prior to our vacation. They answered all of our questions and ensured everything was in order when we arrived. We arrived to the gated community and were greeted by Lester, the onsite property caretaker. He showed us to our villa and made sure we had everything we needed. One of the neighbors approached us and was very welcoming. He told us about lots of restaurants and fun things to do in the area. The Welcome Pack, provided by the owners, was awesome! We checked off things as we did them throughout the week. We would have needed more time to get to everything, but the recommendations in the Welcome Pack were great suggestions. The location of the villa is private and quiet, about 2km from the main road. We really were able to take soak in the culture of Costa Rica. We were close enough to touristy things to do, but at the same time had the opportunity to visit local restaurants (soda's) or just lounge by the community pool. Each morning, we had coffee outside and listened to the sounds of the rain forest. The villa is within 20 minutes of Los Suenos Marriott and Jaco Beach. Just down the road are 2 beaches including Playa Blanca with it's pristine white sand. We absolutely had a great time! Would highly recommend this to anyone! Great vacation and great accommodations!

Great holiday in beautiful Costa Rica!

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay at this unit. It was very clean with good amenities, a nice shared pool in the complex, safe and located perfectly for me as I was joining friends who were staying in nearby Punta Leona. The beach at Playa Mantas was excellent. I didn't see monkeys at the unit sadly, but I did hear howlers occasionally in the distance somewhere. It's located on a secondary road and I would recommend you have a vehicle as you will need it to get around from here. Only a few of the other units seemed occupied during my stay, so I had lots of peace and tranquility while visiting. It's located in reasonable driving distance to Jaco, Los Suenos and other points of interest and with a car we were daytripping to see the sites and experience the culture. Pura vida all the way!

Would recommend this spot if you want to have a peaceful stay but also be not too far from "civilization" as well.

There were many restaurants and a local variety store nearby

Beach bum paradise

  • 5 of 5

Great location, with one the very best blue flag beaches, Playa Blanca, minutes away down the dirt road, playa Mantas is also nice but once you enter Mantas, just go left along the shore and climb a rocky incline and Playa Blanca awaits with pristine waters, spotlessly clean off white sand, a chorus of Scarlett macaws may serenade you, one day I counted 24. If your into surfing then about 20 minutes going towards Jaco, is Playa Hermosa, where just recently the world surfing competion was held. There are nature parks, zip lines and all kinds of water adventures for all ages just minutes away.

The villa was well maintained, clean, bug free, good layout, kitchen had all you needed to prepare meals, except a blender, ac worked great, and it was quite, except the hum of the ac inside and nature outside, no wifi, but I didn't care too much, since this trip was primarily to communicate with nature.

Lester the caretaker was very friendly and speaks a little English, which is a big plus.

I most certainly will come back to Beth and Bob place in the near future.

Pure Vida

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind review Ken! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at our villa! We look forward to having you as a guest again, and adding a blender is a great idea! We are working to add internet for future visitors and will hope to have that early 2017. In the meantime, we have used, and have recommended to others to use the GPS with wifi for excellent internet connection. Thanks again for being our guest! Beth and Bob

Memories Are Made Of This!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second trip to this beautiful country, and we could not have been more pleased to see what awaited us when we arrived at this villa in Punta Leona! We arrived just a few days after the owners had been here to do some updates, and WOW! The villa itself is beautifully set up, with all that you need to have a self contained vacation, with satellite TV, and internet availability through a wi-fi hotspot. Every morning we were treated to silly monkeys running around the trees and one day even looking in the back door! The grounds were beautifully kept, and the interior of the villa showed the owners commitment to a positive guest experience! With the most beautiful beaches down the end of the road, we were perfectly situated to everything, and no more than 15 minutes or so from restaurants, shopping and site seeing opportunities. Owners were fantastic to communicate with and very responsive from initial contact to follow up after our trip. This will be a place we do a repeat stay at for sure!

WOW! JUST WOW!

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Costa Rica after many years of wishing turned out to be a dream come true! This property is beautiful, secluded, quiet, yet full of life! Imagine seeing white faced monkeys visit us in the trees above our unit! The sights and sounds are just amazing! The unit is beautifully maintained and the grounds and pool are impeccably kept. A short 2 mile drive down the dirt road will take you to the most breathtaking of beaches, Playa Mantas, and from there you can walk over to Playa Blanca, for an even more incredible view! The information provided by the owners offered us an amazing opportunity to make the most of our visit. Away from the hustle and bustle, but oh so easy access to get to everywhere you want to go! We will definitely be coming back!
