About the Property

Playa Mantas and Playa Blanca minutes away!

Welcome to paradise! Our family friendly homes boasts everything needed to experience Costa Rica as you have always dreamed. Enjoy the private, gated community and relax by the pool...our grounds are meticulously maintained, thanks to our wonderful staff.

The community is perfectly located close enough to Jaco shopping, dining, Los Suenos golf and world class fishing and enough eco-tourism to keep you busy for months. This 2 story, 2 BR/2BA allows for the ideal setting...children are able to sleep upstairs, while adults enjoy the living space downstairs.

An abundance of wildlife can be seen most days while sipping a cup of local coffee on the veranda. Some of our regular visitors are the White Face, Spider & Howler Monkeys. Scarlet macaws fly over head daily on their way to the beach to feed on almond trees. Toucans, sloths, blue morph butterflies and hummingbirds also pay regular visits.

Playa Mantas & Playa Blanca are two miles at the end of our road. Both of these amazing beaches have been awarded a 'blue flag' rating. This is the highest ranking award given by CR government for cleanliness, safety and beauty. From the southern most point of Playa Blanca, you can snorkel along the rocks and see beautiful marine life...or just relax on the beautiful white sand beach.


Do you surf? We are close to the world renowned Hermosa and Jaco Beaches that offer waves for beginner and expert surfers.

Do you like to Fish & Golf? Los Suenos Marriot Resort is a 4 mile drive and offers World Class Sport Fishing, golf, shopping, dining and all US commodities (groceries, medical, bank, etc.)

Manuel Antonio, the most traveled park in Costa Rica, is less than 1 hour away. This makes for an easy day trip to one of our favorite parks in the Central Pacific.

Car: Necessary

Our Villa is situated near numerous key attractions and restaurants. Two gorgeous beaches are located just down the road, (Playa Mantas and Playa Blanca) and there is also a butterfly sanctuary you can visit on the way. Numerous sodas and fruit stands are close by where you can experience true, authentic Costa Rican cuisine! The grand resort of Villa Caletes is approximately 4 km from us and they offer delightful dining with a stunning view and extend great happy hour specials..... let me suggest booking a massage as they have a great spa....I have all the details for that! A local grocery store is about 10 minutes away in Playa Herradura named Auto Mercado where you can stock the fridge. This is also home to the Los Suenos Resort and Marina which is globally known as the Fishing Capital of Costa Rica playing home to Costa Rica's only full service five star Marina and home to the largest fleet of the country's top Big Game Sport fishing Captains and boats. Here you can dine at The Hookup right at the Marina! Other quaint eateries are along the beach of Herradura as well. If you are interested in seeing some of the exuberant wild life and rainforest that Costa Rica offers, boy are you in the right place! For just about 3 km from the Villa is Carara National Park. Carara is home to one of the largest remaining populations of wild Scarlet Macaw in the country! If you came to surf, well that's covered as well because we are within very close proximity to Playa Jaco, known for it's world renown surfing! And I also must mention that Manuel Antonio National Park is just about an hour's drive away and Manuel Antonio is one of the most famous tourist destinations in Costa Rica with FOUR beaches! Adventure and fun is surrounding you here...Zip-Lining, rainforest tours via hike/bike/ATV/horse, crocodile tours via boat on the Tarcoles River, wildlife & bird spotting, volcano trips, souvenir shopping, world class fishing, surfing, golfing....what more can be said, you've chosen a wonderful place to stay!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Buenos! Our names are Beth and Bob Maynard. We currently reside in St. Petersburg, Florida. Costa Rica has a special place in our hearts and we are always anxiously awaiting a return trip. Because of the tranquility, stunning beauty, friendly people, and the abundance of activities, it is an amazing place for us to get a renewed sense of ourselves....to get our batteries recharged! We KNOW you will feel the same way and we welcome your questions to learn more about Villas De La Fountain! Beth and Bob

Why the Owner Chose Puntarenas, Costa Rica:
This property was chosen as our ideal vacation destination due to it's close proximity to the International Airport, beautiful clean beaches and tourist attractions. We intentionally chose this quiet area, to be slightly removed from the bustling town of Jaco to allow for a relaxing, private getaway and it's central to so many attractions!
