About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 3-1/2 Bathrooms, sleeps 6-8, swimming pool.

Authentic Costa Rican experience in the small town of Quebrada Ganado. The town has mostly local people, with the popular tourist destination of Jaco only 15 minutes away. The beautiful Macaws can often be seen - and definitely heard - flying over the house and surrounding neighborhood in the mornings, and again in the afternoon. They often land in the almond tree in the front yard. The property consists of two buildings with living quarters. The main house has 2 bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, and a third bathroom. Open concept living room, dining room & kitchen. TV/DVD so you can bring your favorite movies. Internet (just bring your device) and telephone available for local calls. Kitchen has all appliances except a dishwasher. Laundry room with stackable washer/dryer, AC throughout the home. It has been remodeled recently, and has hot water throughout (except bathroom sinks). New kitchen and living room furniture, newer beds. Separate, recenty converted room behind the main house is a large bedroom with half bath and A/C. There are 2 twin beds, with linens to convert to a king bed, and room for blow up air mattress (provided). Access into main home is just steps away.
Wonderful newly installed in ground swimming pool - photos don't do it justice! It is much bigger than it looks (11'wx23'lx 4-1/2' d), with patio all around and new landscaping. Entire property is completely fenced, gated and secure. Back yard/pool area is completely private.
Outdoor shower/changing area just completed.
Large lot with grass, trees, a rancho (covered patio) and BBQ area. Property manager only a few minutes away, for all of your needs. They can also set up trips and tours for you, as well as rental car info and/or transport to/from airport. Buses stop just around the corner, main bus from airport & city is less than 1/2 mile away. Community pool and activity area (basketball, etc) are one block over. Grocery stores and souvenier shops are in town, and several restaurants within 1 mile. Playa Agujas is 1 mile away and several other beaches are within 2 miles. 15 minutes away in Jaco and Playa Herradura there are many restaurants, bars, souvenir shops, stores and fitness facilities. Virtually every activity that you can think of is nearby, or a tour is accessible from Jaco or Playa Herradura. Carara National Park is less than 5 miles away. The famous "crocodile bridge" is 6 miles. Kayak tours are 1 mile at Playa Agujas, and the Los Suenos Golf facilities are 10 minutes away. Manual Antonio National Park is just 1 1/2 hours away, easily done as a day trip. Arenal & Monteverde area's approx. 2-1/2 hours away. Other activities include surfing, snorkeling, deep sea fishing, horseback riding, sailing/whale watching tours, turtle tours. Rainforest, suspended canopy walks, ziplines, river rafting, and many more activities.
Located on the Pacific Ocean side of the country, the home is just 1 hour away from the capital of San Jose, and the international airport at Alajuela.
*Costa Rica's weather is very diverse. In our location, the rainy season typically starts in mid-May and runs through November. There is usually an 'Indian Summer' end of July/August, with a break in the steady rain. December to May are usually hot and humid with little or no rain. Rainy or not, the temperatures will usually be at least in the high 70's, with temps well into the 90's during the dry season.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: We live in the western US, and come down to enjoy our property several times a year.

Why the Owner Chose Puntarenas, Costa Rica:
We looked at several different countries and decided that Costa Rica had a lot going for it. We visited the country a couple of times before we purchased, and really loved this small, local town. We didn't want to be only in an "expat" community or a tourist town. We love the people, the quietness and the availability of everything we need.
