About the Property
3BR Luxury Vacation Home close to the beach!
It is located within walking distance of Playa Junquillal and is near the end of a paved road providing quick access to Santa Cruz or the international airport in Liberia.
The home sits on an oversized lot surrounded by green areas. Trails from two corners of the property will lead you to the beach access or to the extensive club house which has cascading pools, a modern fitness facility, tennis court and hot tub. Morning Yoga and Zumba are offered twice a week in the club yoga room. Mile of trails will thrill even the most avid hiker. In fact, one third of the community is designated as green zones which provide an unparalleled experience with nature. Coffee with Monkeys is almost a daily occurrence.
There is a beach nearby for every occasion. Playa Junquillal, a blue flag beach, is a few minutes away and is one of the longest volcanic sand beaches in Costa Rica. It is incredible for walks, and has a coveted surf break at high tide. Playa Avellenas and the famous Playa Negra, featured in endless summer II, are ten minutes up the road. Playa Blanca, a quintessential white sandy beach, is moments away for snorkeling.
Our home is newly constructed with 3 bedrooms, 2 (1/2) baths, and an artistically tiled outside shower for after the beach. The large cooks’ kitchen has custom teak cabinets complimented by Italian granite counter tops, an island, 2 sinks, and stainless steel appliances and is the hub of the home. The main terrace, dining room, and screened living room radiate out from the kitchen. Upstairs is the owner’s suite with a bedroom(a/c), screened yoga room, full bath, and the “get away” room, a smaller room with a day bed and flat screen TV(a/c) for a cool afternoon movie.
The guest suite is off the main 30 foot terrace and includes a/c, teak bed, and luxury bathroom.
All beds and mattresses are of the highest quality providing the best possible sleep after your day in paradise. An ample laundry room with washer and dryer and ½ bath is just inside from the outdoor shower and gardens.
The home was designed to integrate with the outside environment and the natural surroundings. Windows and doors were designed to capture sight lines and cross breezes. Consequently the home remains cool and comfortable throughout the year.
A short walk from the home you can be at the Tierra Pacifica commercial center where you will find a grocery store, Amigo’s restaurant, a doctor, and the local veterinary clinic. There are many amazing restaurants nearby ranging from typical Costa Rican dishes to French cuisine. Please respect and enjoy Costa Rica’s natural resources and radiant people!

Year Purchased: 2011
About: We have been exploring Costa Rica for the past fifteen years and we always returned to Junquillal for the quiet beaches, interaction with nature and the local smiling faces. We owned a ranch in a town called Venado just south of Junquillal with horses and cattle but when the opportunity presented itself we jumped at being a part of Tierra Pacifica Estates. We divide our time between working the summers in Vermont as Park Rangers and relaxing and enjoying the beautiful Casa del Bosque.
Why Junquillal, Costa Rica:
Being from the forest we felt most comfortable in the incredible and diverse dry tropical forest of Guanacaste. Casa del Bosque literally means house of the forest. The trees that surround our home are majestic primary growth that supports an incredible amount of wildlife. In the dry season the trees blossom with intense colors of yellow, orange and reds that always make me pause. The community Green Zone virtually surrounds this property which insures privacy and an unparalleled experience with nature. You will not find a better place to view monkeys as we continue to support their corridor with special plantings. Just about every morning we wake, up brew some quality coffee, and sit on the terrace and watch the monkeys and diverse bird population begin their day.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Upon arriving you will immediately notice how open and cool our home is. Each area of our home takes advantage of cross breezes and sight lines. Staying in the tropics is about integrating with the outside environment so there is plenty of outside space both open and screened. Casa del Bosque is centrally located in the community so it is an easy 5 minute walk down a trail from the corner of our lot to the really amazing Club Arbol which has cascading pools, a lap pool, a complete fitness facility, yoga room, hot tub, Wi Fi, and tennis court. Down another path you will be on the beach trail and in fifteen minutes walking on one of the most serene beaches in Costa Rica. Most nights the sound of the surf will gently lull you to sleep. The kitchen was designed for multiple chefs with long granite counter tops, a large island and two sink areas. Buen Provecho! You will love this house!
