Playa Junquillal condo description

SUN, SAND & SURF

The unit is located on Playa Venado, within 50m (150ft)of the high water mark. Playa Venado is one of a handfull of beaches that has received for the past 7 years the coveted 'Blue Flag' designation, the highest standard for quality achievable as determined by the Costa Rican authorities.
Relax in the comfort of the large well appointed lanai overlooking the beach and watch the constantly changing seascape with a 120 deg vista. Bask in the gentle, warm, dry breezes as you watch pelicans soaring in formation over the beach then diving for lunch. The secluded 1 1/2 km Playa Venado beach calls out to be walked at low tide to search for sand dollars and seashells during the day.

If the timing is right at night, you might happen upon a giant Leatherback or Olive Ridley sea turtles coming on shore to nest. Sixty - ninety days later you might come upon and help the baby turtles out of their sand nest and help them dash to the relative safety of the sea. If there are no turtles, stop and gaze at the canopy of stars, the Milky Way, Big Dipper, Little Dipper, Southern Cross, Cassiopeia, and thousands more as they twinkle over head while your feet are caressed by the warm ocean waters below. Bonfires at night, sand castles during the day, snorkeling on the black lava reef just in front...lots to do on and around the beautiful beach.

Inside, enjoy the well appointed modern, fully equipped, kitchen with big island, great for gourmet entertaining or prepping an intimate dinner for two. Large wrap around windows bring the sea to you as you linger inside.

The newly renovated decor features rich Cristobal a local wood, in the kitchen and all the baseboards, marble on the floors, comfortable rattan furniture, modern window treatments and lovely local art pieces. Each bedroom has it its own air conditioner and ceiling fan to ensure your sleep is comfortable regardless of what it is like outside. High quality linens add to the enjoyment. Both bathrooms have been renovated in the same style as above.

Unit #3, is part of a small 18 unit condo complex that has a large 25 m pool and tastefully landscaped inner court yard with a variety of palms and flowers which attract a number of colorful birds. Comfortable chaise lounges and chairs make for great sun worshipping space or even more decadent, lay about in the pool in our floatees. A built in pool bar is great to sit at to watch the magnificent sunsets and even,if you’re lucky,catch a fleeting glimpse of the elusive 'green flash'.

There is a full time English speaking caretaker to help in emergencies and the English, Spanish, German speaking property manager for unit #3 lives a few minutes away. It is a safe, gated community with 24 hour guard coverage.

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  Why Playa Junquillal:
                  Sun, sea and golf in a quiet, laid back, rustic, eco-friendly environment, in a very stable country with a great climate, is what attracted us to Las Brisas, Playa Junquillal, Guanacaste, and Costa Rica. Playa Junquillal, a small, laid back, tranquil commmunity of only 100 full time residents that swells to 200 during their summer...Dec to March. Although off the tourist trail, it is just over an hour away from the closest international airport, Liberia, with lots of airlines arriving from multiple US, Canadian and European destinations. You can keep yourself busy every day or just soak up the sun and read that pile of books that have been calling to you for months. The weather is ideal 85 degs F +- 5 degs, /29 deg C +- 2 deg, with no rain from mid Dec to mid April. Typically, the humidity is around 40-50%, with warm, dry, winds blowing offshore during the early part of the day ...very pleasant and it helps set up the waves right off shore for surfers. In the late afternoon, the cooler breezes blow on shore. The abundance of flora and fauna makes this a bird watchers haven. Zip lining; rafting; kayaking; mud baths; thermal pools; volcanoes dormant and safely active; trekking by horseback; mountain biking; history and culture tours; river expeditions; sunset cruises on catamarans; golf; tennis; offshore fishing for tuna, snapper, and sail; night life and shopping; are available for 1/2 or full day trips. If golf attracts you, a challenging Mike Young designed course at Hacienda Pinilla, is 30 min away with special pricing for unlimited family weekly play.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  The new Supermarcado in Junquillal has most food stuffs, but if you need some harder to get NA/European foods, Tamarindo or Santa Cruz, both only 40 minutes away, have bigger stores with greater variety. There is an array of great restaurants within 45 minutes of the condo...local Tico and upscale foreign run places cater to most palates at reasonable prices. The local watering hole, Adrianna's, is great beach bar to stop at sunset to have a cold Pilsen or Imperial. Meet the locals, Ticos and snowbirds, and find out more about the attractions of Playa Junquillal, new restaurants, or new spots to visit.
