Authentic Costa Rican experience in this small town of 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'x23'x 4-1/2' deep), 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.

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.
