Playa Bejuco townhome description

CASA ROWE - SHORT WALK TO THE BEACH!

LOW SUMMER AND FALL 'GREEN SEASON' RATE - $500 weekly.

Casa Rowe is a relatively new (2007) 2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath Townhome located in the Gardens of the Pacific, a small community in the rural beach hamlet of Playa Bejuco on Costa Rica's central Pacific coast. The Gardens is a quiet and safe residential community of a few dozen homes designed to blend in with the natural environment.

Playa Bejuco is a 2 hour drive from the San Jose airport and 25 minutes south of the tourist mecca of Jaco, through bucolic countryside with cattle grazing in lush green pastures framed by mountains and ocean. The scenic drive south on the Costanera (coast highway) leading to our townhome is enchanting, and the idyllic beauty of the region quite breathtaking.

Playa Bejuco is centrally located on the Pacific coast, an ideal home base for those wishing to explore the ecodiversity of Costa Rica, including beaches, rainforests, mountains, volcanoes, rivers, estuaries and waterfalls.

TOWNHOME DESCRIPTION:

Casa Rowe is a spacious and relaxing 2 story townhome that can comfortably sleep 5-6 persons. The home is newly furnished throughout with dark and rich Costa Rican wood furniture, and includes the following:

- A large upstairs master bedroom with vaulted ceilings, queen size wood bed with carved design, nicely tiled master bath with wood cabinets, and private outside balcony with decorative iron railings.

PLAYA BEJUCO/ GARDENS OF THE PACIFIC:

Casa Rowe is a short 5-8 minute walk to quiet and secluded Playa Bejuco, a Blue Flag beach (highest ecological rating) known for its clean water and quality surfing waves. The ocean water is warm - around 80 degrees - year round. The lengthy and wide (especially at low tide) dark sand, palm tree-lined beach stretches for miles and is usually empty, perfect for extended beach walks, bicycle rides and/or collecting shells and driftwood, especially at sunrise or sunset.

The outside of our Gardens of the Pacific townhome is nicely landscaped and kept beautiful by the friendly community gardeners. Yard foliage includes a large and shady jacaranda tree, palms, crotons, allamandas, heliconias, hibiscus and other flowering plants. The yard and adjacent green space attract a variety of birds (including hummingbirds) and butterflies, and you awaken each morning to the sounds of exotic birdsong. The trees in the community are frequented regularly by large multicolored parrots (scarlet macaws) and, occasionally, troupes of monkeys.

Gardens of the Pacific has a large tropically landscaped green space/ BBQ/ pool area in the quiet rear portion of the community. The space includes a covered entertainment area, BBQ grill, community pool (w/ child pool), bathroom and outdoor shower. It is an ideal setting for family/group gatherings.

Playa Bejuco is a tiny rural coastal village. There is a bodega (mini-mart) located steps from our townhome, and two beach hotel/restaurants a short walking distance down a road leading to the ocean. The restaurants offer excellent food at reasonable prices and are nice places to enjoy drinks at sunset.

Playa Bejuco offers vacationers to Costa Rica the best of both worlds, a beautiful rural setting located a bit off the conventional tourist track, yet with easy access to a variety of attractions and activities. For example, the lively town of Jaco, with its nightlife, shops and restaurants, is located less than 1/2 hour from our townhome, yet seems worlds removed. At the end of the day, it is a pleasure to retreat to the solace and quietude of Playa Bejuco.

ACTIVITIES:

Costa Rica offers much in the way of adventure and ecotourism, with opportunities for surfing, fishing, ziplining, rainforest canopy tours, ATV rentals, horseback riding, golfing, whitewater rafting, mountain biking, scuba diving, birdwatching, hiking to waterfalls, and wildlife viewing.

Costa Rica is a wonderful place to visit and explore. We hope you choose our comfortable and affordably priced family vacation townhome as a home base to experience some of the wonders this unique country has to offer.

Please visit our Casa Rowe website for more information, including additional photos.

PURA VIDA!

The Rowe Family

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: Our family, including three children, is from Florida. I am a college professor and my wife is a high school counselor. Once retired, we plan to spend more time in our Costa Rican townhome. In the meantime, we would like to share our home with others.

                      Why the Owner Chose Playa Bejuco:
                      We first visited Costa Rica in the early 2000s on a surfing trip, and fell in love with the country. Soon thereafter, we began searching for a family vacation home near the Pacific ocean. After researching the real estate market, and making a few more trips to Costa Rica, we settled on the Playa Bejuco/Esterillos area, located between Jaco and Manuel Antonio on the central Pacific coast. Playa Bejuco provides us the best of both worlds, a beautiful and tranquil rural setting near the ocean, yet close enough to 'civilization' to suit our needs.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                      The main attraction of our property is its close proximity to the Pacific Ocean, a short 5-8 minute walk down the road in front of our townhome. Our family loves to surf, and some of the most consistent waves in Costa Rica are found nearby. Playa Bejuco is a bit off the conventional tourist track and, as a result, is quiet, peaceful and uncrowded. However, there are larger towns like Jaco and Parrita nearby, as well as a beautiful national park in Manuel Antonio. In addition to the natural beauty of the area and its nice waves, it is the gentle laid back vibe of the Costa Rican culture and people that attracts us to the country. PURA VIDA!
