Property description

Welcome to Plumita Pacifica, on one of Costa Rica’s most beautiful and pristine beaches.

Can you beat this value? $85 PER NIGHT!!! (or less depending on length of stay) to be right on a secluded, romantic beach in paradise!!! Click on the video that is on my website and you’ll see what I mean.

In the following descriptions I’ll tell you, briefly, as much as I can but here’s the real secret… they say a picture is worth a thousand words… I believe a short video may be even better. To view my little piece of paradise visit my website and click on the video.
Peace and quiet, romance and solitude all just outside your door. Step outside your comfortably and completely furnished apartment right onto a beautiful, pristine and gentle beach. Look to your left, look to your right and you’ll see nothing but more pristine beach!
Relax under the coconut palms or play in the surf. The beach slopes so gently in front of your apartment you can walk out past the breakers and still touch sand while enjoying the calm and warmth of the water. Or, if you’re the adventuresome type, surf in one of Costa Rica’s prime surf locations about 200 yards up the beach.
For your enjoyment and comfort a complete one bedroom apartment was created for people who want more out of life than a whirlwind tour of Costa Rica. Stroll on the beach, play and swim in the warm water, pick a coconut, get a nice tan, watch the pelicans fishing in the surf (maybe try it yourself), or just sit on your patio in a beautiful setting and relax to the lulling sounds of the ocean and be delighted by beautiful sunsets, flowers, and scenery.
The apartment is air conditioned, has lots of light, a complete and fully equipped kitchen, queen bed with elegant linens to snuggle into, a nice modern bathroom with marble countertops and a big shower with a great shower head. Or use the outdoor shower after enjoying the beach.

But most importantly, a spectacular ocean view. Step outside and you are on the beach!

Activities abound in and around Playa Junquillal. You’ll have an activity guide in your apartment to reference which will tell you about activities and restaurants, all within an easy walk.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Having been raised in Alaska, I began to seek out a warmer paradise. After many trips to Hawaii and the Caribbean I thought I’d take a look at Costa Rica. Wow! It’s prettier than both and far more interesting with its incredible eco-diversity. The part of Costa Rica in which I chose to build Plumita Pacifica has the exact climate of Hawaii, same temperatures, humidity and breezes but more tranquility and natural beauty. The people are warm and friendly and the country has been a stable Democracy for 100 years and is in the “emerging country” phase of its transition to a developed nation. So considering all the positives I knew I had found my paradise and learning Spanish was a welcome challenge. So here I am, enjoying my little piece of paradise, with the opportunity to share it with those who would like to sample the “pura vida” lifestyle. When you visit my website you'll see everything you're looking for in terms of living accommodations in the video. What you won't see is the fact that everything else you need is a literal stones throw from Plumita Pacifica. Even though I have a very unique location in that it has all the romance that a secluded little paradise has to offer, I'm very close to a well stocked market and several nice restaurants as well as many different tour/tourist options, as you will see when you explore my website.

Why the Owner Chose Playa Junquillal:
I chose this part of Costa Rica in the province of Guanacaste because it’s the driest part of the country and in many ways reminded me of parts of California that I love. It’s not just all dense jungle. There are many open spaces with clumps of trees and jungle covered hills in the background. Guanacaste is cattle country. I frequently see a cowboy driving his cattle and in fact occasionally must proceed very slowly in my car while he moves them off the highway. I love the rural flavor of the place. Alaska is quite undeveloped and my childhood was spent in a remote location where there were very few people and Guanacaste often “takes me back” to those peaceful days. And yet from Plumita Pacifica I have access to a wide variety of vacation and entertainment attractions, as you will see when you visit my website.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Here’s what is so unique about the location of Plumita Pacifica. From the property you see no other structure. You step out onto the beach, look to your left, look to your right and you see nothing but more pristine beach… no houses, no condos, no structures of any kind and usually no people. And yet Plumita Pacifica is within a few minutes walk of restaurants, a market and tour facilities. So you get this feeling of being in this romantic little place in the middle of nowhere with a view of the beautiful Pacific through the coconut palms and yet you have everything you need nearby, just out of sight!
