Overview

Puntarenas House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom at pool

VRBO, HomeAway, and FlipKey now charge guests a high service fee, in addition to the high fee that I already pay for being included on their website. This is new, as Expedia is running things. I deal directly with my guests and am able to avoid this fee. I encourage you to check out a new vacation home rental website called HomeEscape (property # 72424). They get all money through advertising; they are friendly to the owner and the guest.

Our Costa Rica home has a 40ft Waterfall located just below the property (a 5 minute walk) , 2 rivers surround the property, there are huge mountain views, including Mount Chiripo (the highest peak in Costa Rica). There is a private pool, & only a 15 min drive to the beach!

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered
  • suitable for elderly or infirm

About Judith Adams

I love the outdoors and traveling! Costa is our go-to country, as the nature is profoundly beautiful, the people are gracious and greet you with an open heart, and the food is delicious and nutritious! Great place, great friends, great food = great memories!!

Judith Adams purchased this house in 2009

Why Judith Adams chose Puntarenas

Los Sueños Dorados is high enough to not only be surrounded by gorgeous moutain views, but able to benefit from the cooler mountains Air that descends at night. This property is bordered by a crystal clear river, with a 40 foot waterfall a short walk downstream. It is an incredible piece of nature.

What makes this house unique

The property is at the end of the road! It is private, but not isolated. You can get there in two wheel drive. The river is beautiful and makes a wonderful and relaxing place to be. The mountain views and surrounding nature will nourish your soul. It is a 15 minute drive to the beach for surfing enthusiasts. There is something for everyone!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello from gray and overcast Washington DC!



We had a lovely stay at your place. What a location! Such a view! The toucans made regular appearances and were well photographed. We had a good rainstorm one evening and lost electricity, but the power was back on by the time we got back from the beach in the afternoon.



We had dinner twice at the local restaurant you recommended -- very pleasant indeed. We also went to PorQueNo, just south of Dominical, and had a fabulous meal (suitable for foodies) with an incredible view of the sunset.



We were regular visitors to the falls below the house. Water levels were low, but still plenty of cool clear water to splash around in. Did a hike up to Nauyaca Waterfall on a hot day - glad we had plenty of water to drink.

Never going home.

  • 5 of 5

Love love love this Casa. It's at the end of a gravel road and surround by the cloud forest. Privacy is without a doubt here. It's just lovely. Judith has gone above and beyond to make sure our stay here is perfect. And it is!

I could go on about the wonderful pool with a deep end and loungers. Or the hummingbirds galore. The birds singing all day. But it's the little things that make this place great too - a gas stove, high end cookware, a perfect coffee pot for Costa Rican coffee, and the people who add to the charm. The neighbors are all friendly and gracious. Not one person hasn't waved or said hola!

The cloud forest is changing from minute to minute so if your driving down the mountain or over the mountain the vista is stunning. A sight to behold from the backyard patio and ranchero.

Thank you for making our stay here so memorable.

Beautiful location with stunning views of the hills. Sloths, Toucans, Hawks etc. all seen in the grounds. Short 15 min drive to Dominical, lots to see and do close by. My kids had a great time. Perfect stay!

Beautiful Setting and a Great layout

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this brautiful home with my 8 and 15 year old children and we all absolutely loved our stay. The house is well layed out with a great sized kitchen, 3 bedrooms and fast wifi (important with a teenager!). The yard and pool overlooking the jungle are absolutely stunning. Hands down the best place we stayed while in Costa Rica. Carlos was there every day to make sure we had everything we needed and Judy has notes and tips on everything you need to fully enjoy and relax during your stay. Highly recommended!!

Incredibly beautiful gardens and pool area, peaceful, convienent, and a great value!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of five people and three dogs had a wonderful three-day stay here in Dominical. We loved the outdoor spaces and were all astonished by how beautiful and well-maintained the gardens and pool area (beautiful views!) were. The house is simple but very clean and properly appointed with everything you will need. We had some lovely hikes from the house to the river and waterfalls as well as day trips to the beaches. At night, we enjoyed cooking at the house and eating outside in the lovely pool-side rancho. Judith, the owner, was very pleasant, responsive, helpful, and easy to deal with. Overall, a fantastic value and great rental experience!

Wondeful place plenty of peace

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property. House very clean and confortable ideal for a party up to 6.

The path to the house it's a little hard because there is no concrete in the final part but if you rent a 4x4 or a SUV you won't have any problem. The right part of the location is that the only thing you will hear is nature ... crickets, frogs, birds, the rain, a wonderful orquestra for a relaxing sleep.

The pool is perfect for swimming after a day visiting the area. You can buy some pinnapple and mango in a stall in the way to the house (good price and the best flavor ever tasted)

I want to return soon !!!!!!

Peaceful Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our visit to this lovely place and wanted to express our appreciation to Judith for opening her wonderful home to visitors. Such views! What a garden!

This place is about 3 1/2 hours from the airport, so folks planning a short visit should keep that in mind. Please DO plan your arrival so you get to the house during daylight hours for first arrival.

Very isolated, but completely secure. The only sound we heard was the gurgling of the stream below and the songs of the many, many birds who visited.

Lots to do in the area. Our teenage boys were down at the stream every day, but we also went to the beach at Dominical and Uvita, did a zip-lining tour and trekked up to Nauyaca Waterfall. But the best times we spent were quiet mornings and evenings at the house, drinking in the views and enjoying the BBQ by the pool.

Spotlessly clean, WiFi worked great, mosquitoes not an issue at all.

Recommend bringing a comfier chair for sitting outside -- since that's where you'll want to spend all your time!

Hope we get to go back!!
