  • Like an upscale resort, all to yourself!

    "We just spent 2 weeks at this fabulous property and I would happily give it 10 stars if I could! Inside, there's everything you need to complete your stay from a fully stocked kitchen to loads of pillows, sheets, towels and all the comforts of home. It's beautifully decorated and squeaky clean. Gorgeous! The photos truly don't do it justice! Outside, the photos tell you everything you need to know! Immaculately landscaped, large pool and spa, plenty of seats, and a great tiki hut with large BBQ for cooking. There's 2 hammocks in the palm trees just outside the fence, and an endless beach where you will only see one or two people each day. Picture perfect sunsets are a bonus! As others have mentioned, do rent a 4x4. The roads around the property and about 30-45min in each direction are challenging gravel roads, but totally worth the drive. About 10min away is the little town of Playa de Coyote, where you'll find 2 grocery stores with everything you might need, though stopping in Nicoya on the way to the property will save you some money. We went to the Pizza Tree about 10min away in Playa San Miguel and that was a real treat. Worth a try! We saw iguanas, gorgeous birds, and even a couple howler monkeys while there. Joe is so responsive and helpful. He was quick to answer all emails and provide us with any information we needed both before and during our stay. Of all the places we've rented, Joe was by far the most helpful and gracious host! Pilo, the innkeeper, was also very helpful. He doesn't speak much English (and we spoke no Spanish!) but we found that using a phone app that does translations was a very effective way to communicate! He seemed to enjoy that! Thank you Joe for making this wonderful property available. We're already planning our next trip!"

  • Amazingly Beautiful Costa Rican Getaway

    "We visited Punta Dakota in January of 2015 with friends (there were 9 of us total). The property was beautiful and the weather was amazing! Online pictures of this property do not do it justice! The villa had all of the amenities that we could have possibly needed and the pool/bar area was breathtaking. It was so nice not to have to fight for a chair by the pool like you would have to at a hotel/resort! The staff at Punta Dakota would get a 5+ star rating if it would let me. We did hire Wilberth while we were there and he should really be charging more! He was amazing!! He did everything; he was our personal chef (the food was mouth watering), our bartender (made from scratch pina coladas to die for), and our local tour guide (we did an offsite excursion almost everyday that we were there). He knows everyone around the area of San Francisco and beyond so everyone was always very friendly. Great experience! We will definitely be repeat visitors of Punta Dakota!!"

  • Great stay in Costa Rica!

    "The property was top notch and a great location. It was very clean and well maintained. I would rate this trip among the best family vacations we have ever taken. The service was great all around including the service at the Beach Club. Working with Maria at PEXS and her team was a delight. We would definitely go back!"
