Puntarenas house description

Villa Cabomar is located steps from the beach in Costa Rica's cruise ship port and offers a luxurious base for exploring Costa Rica's natural wonders or a place for relaxing in the Villa's private pool or on Costa Rica's longest beach. Restaurants featuring fresh seafood as well as steaks and continental cuisine are within short walking distance. Downtown Puntarenas, with more restaurants, banks and ATMs, the central market, and modern, well-stocked supermarkets, is a comfortable walk or a short cab ride. Villa Cabomar features high-level security measures, including gated parking. Native woods, original art and custom made furniture are found throughout the villa. Guests also have access to a fully equipped kitchen and washer and dryer.

The heart of the house is the open-air atrium between the kitchen and the computer area/laundry. A custom designed spa with water jets and falling water along with a wet bar, and half bath makes the back patio a private respite for relaxing.


Easy access to world famous beaches: Some of Costa Rica's most spectacular beaches are within easy reach of Villa Cabomar. Ferries to beaches in the southern region of the Nicoya Peninsula - Montezuma, Mal Pais, Tambor - and to beaches in the northern region of the peninsula - Samara, Nicoya, Nosara - leave from the docks one half mile from Villa Cabomar. The ferry is a scenic, relaxing alternative to the long, overland drive on rough roads to these stunning beaches. Arrive at Villa Cabomar in the afternoon following your flight to Costa Rica. Enjoy a stroll on Paseo de los Turistas to experience the amazing sunset over the mountains on the Nicoya Peninsula. Linger over a dinner of Costa Rican seafood specialties at a nearby restaurant. Spend the next day exploring Puntarenas and relaxing on its endless beach. Awake refreshed and ready for your adventure on the Nicoya Peninsula starting with the scenic ferry ride (including your car).

Spend a day at Isla Tortuga accessible by luxury catamaran (lunch included).

Villa Cabomar is conveniently located: Puntarenas is approximately a ninety minute drive from Costa Rica's Juan Santamaria International Airport (SJO) located in San Jose, the capital city. Most US air carriers provide frequent and convenient service to San Jose from the US. All major car rental companies are located at the airport or we can arrange transportation from the airport and car rental in Puntarenas.

Airfares to Costa Rica drop dramatically during the spring and fall months. Take advantage of these fares and have a relaxing tropical vacation at Villa Cabomar for a reasonable cost.

Puntarenas - Pacific Port: The Central Pacific's largest city, Puntarenas sits on a long, narrow peninsula in the Gulf of Nicoya. For years, it was the country's principal port, and although a newer port in nearby Caldera handles cargo, Puntarenas now hosts cruise ships and a large fishing fleet anchors in the estuary behind town. Being the country’s most important fishing port, Puntarenas is the perfect place to enjoy fresh seafood (at surprisingly reasonable prices), such as camarones al ajillo (shrimp scampi), pescado entero (whole fried fish), or ceviche de mariscos (bits of fresh seafood marinated in lime juice with onions, peppers and spices).

Puntarenas is a lively town on weekends, when people from San José fill its waterfront restaurants and bars. A series of open-air 'kioskos' specializing in ice cream and fresh tropical fruit drinks line the beach and is the perfect place to head for dessert or refreshment.

                  Have you already experienced an all-inclusive resort? Or, you´re not really the resort type?

                  Villa Cabomar offers a casually sophisticated alternative to the resort experience.

                  Many of Costa Rica´s most famous attractions are easy day-trips from Villa Cabomar including Monteverde Rain Forest; Jaco Beach, the surfing beach that put Costa Rica on the map; deep-sea sport fishing at Herradura Beach; rain forest canopy (zip line) tours; catamaran tour to white sand beaches on a tropical island; dozens of Pacific coast beaches; the town of Sarchi, the origin of Costa Rica´s famous wood crafts; as well as San Jose, the Costa Rican capital, famous for its National Theater, modeled on the Paris Opera, the Museum of Gold and world-class shopping and dining.

                  You can book tours to many of Costa Rica's attractions with agencies in Puntarenas. These tours can last from a couple of hours to a full day. Dozens of beaches are accessible within 30 minutes to two hours from Puntarenas.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: We built Villa Cabomar as our retirement home and are happy to make it available for your vacation in Costa Rica. We have lived in Northern Virginia for almost 30 years. Martha is a Puntarenas native and a talented artist. Her taste and attention to details can be seen throughout the house - from the original art on the walls, to the custom designed dining room table, and the handcrafted cabinetry made of native renewable wood. Our adult children consider Villa Cabomar and Puntarenas their second home and visit at least once a year.

                  Why the Owner Chose Puntarenas:
                  Villa Cabomar is uniquely private but provides many options for your vacation. Our housekeeper considers guests as family members and goes the extra mile to make your stay in Villa Cabomar relaxing and enjoyable. She prepares and serves a complete breakfast everyday (except Sunday) and provides hotel-style housekeeping so that you always have a clean and orderly place to come back to from your adventures. Puntarenas, the town, is home to numerous moderately priced restaurants, a lively downtown, and a wide, gentle beach that stretches for several kilometers. It is the perfect starting point for tours to the interior of the country, the Nicoya Peninsula with its quirky beach towns and nature preserves, as well as other Pacific Coast beaches. Puntarenas is only 90 minutes from the international airport in San Jose.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Villa Cabomar is unique in that you feel as if you have a home in Costa Rica. You are not sharing its amenities with anyone else. Housekeeping and breakfast are provided so that you can spend your time by the pool, exploring Puntarenas, lying on the beach or seeing the natural beauty of Costa Rica. Having our roots in Puntarenas gives us access to resources that can make your vacation even more enjoyable. We can help you plan tours and ground transportation to and from the airport with a reliable bi-lingual guide with a well-maintained air-conditioned van. We can provide suggestions for destinations that are 'off the beaten path' and transportation alternatives to rental cars. Puntarenas, the major city on the Pacific Coast, provides a taste of the true 'pura vida' (Costa Rican expression for 'good life'). It welcomes visitors from around the world, but remains a city of friendly people who love to share their beach and lifestyle. Villa Cabomar with its inviting interior atrium and cool spa pool in the patio is a welcome respite from the bustle of the town and sightseeing. It is your private oasis.
