Property description

....... this beachfront paradise is all you need!
Enter through the secured gate and follow the royal palm lined drive to your Costa Rican oasis!
This quaint beachfront bungalow sits amongst nature in this tranquil setting with miles of beach to roam, at times seeing no one. Located in the Blue Zone and the Gold Coast of Costa Rica, Punta Paraiso is sure to please all of your senses.

Hear the sounds abound of the sea and wildlife, all while sipping drinks under the covered table IN the pool. Recline on the pool deck while watching the many native bird species, including hummingbirds, butterflies and nightly fireflies traveling to and from the nearby estuary.
Walk a few steps out the front door and you will find the landscaped path to the awaiting Pacific Ocean. Jump on your surfboard and take a ride, or stick your toes in the black sand beach while listening to the waves crash upon the shore...... just 55ft from your front door!!

Main House: Two floors separate the master bedroom and master bath from the kitchen, second bath and bedroom. The large master bedroom up the spiral staircase is bright and airy with ensuite 3 piece bath. You can wash away the cares of the day while observing the estuary from the master bath window or you may opt for the breathtaking ocean and estuary views from the second story veranda just off the master bedroom.
Have dinner by the pool or just sit and relax on the screened in porch on the first floor.

***Guest House: The property also has a private 1 bed (full), 1 bath, 550sf guesthouse located 20yds down the palm lined driveway from the house. The guest house includes a large kitchen (cooktop, microwave, refrigerator, dishes and kitchen essentials) spacious living area and can accommodate up to 3 people. (full size pull out futon in living room). This can be rented in addition to the main house, but also may be rented alone by a separate party. Please contact to see if property in available or rented during your requested stay.***For additional details and information VRBO # 791799***

The village of Junquillal (Hoon-key-all) remains unspoiled, a haven for those looking to spend their precious leisure time on the road less traveled. The village is home to only about 200 residents. Local Costa Ricans (Ticos) as well as international ex-patriots call this area home. If you’re looking for a laid-back, quiet and authentic setting with easy access to all kinds of options, you’ll love it here. However, Playa Junquillal is conveniently located 36 km (30 minutes) from Tamarindo if you are seeking nightlife and a lot of action. There are a few other beach towns sprinkled along the way that brings about more entertainment such as Lola’s in Playa Avellenas and Playa Negra, just a short drive up the coast.

Tierra Pacifica commercial center is where you will find a grocery store carrying local and organic fruits and vegetables. In the same plaza you'll find Amigo’s restaurant, the Surf Cafe for breakfast options and a morning latte, and a surf shop just 5 minutes (drive)down the road from Punta Paraiso. Our local supermarket can provide just what you need, or for a wider variety you can drive to Tamarindo or Santa Cruz. ( all along paved roads )

Several restaurants are available in the area ranging from typical Costa Rican dishes to French cuisine or take out pizza.

There are many activities that Costa Rica has to offer. Our property manager can arrange horseback, zip line, jungle river tours, hiking, caving, birding, mountain biking, scuba diving, deep sea fishing adventures or turtle nesting tours, or just a relaxing day at the spa.

Or for the golf enthusiast you will also find Hacienda Pinalla Golf Course (an 18 hole championship course - 7, 296 yard design set on the Gold Coast of Costa Rica) just 15 km-20 minutes from Junquillal.

Junquillal is also home to a communal effort to preserve the Leatherback Turtle and other marine turtles of the Pacific. You can take a walk out front of the house at night and with a bit of luck you may witness the miracle of turtle nesting. From Sept.-March, sea turtles dig their nests into the sand of Junquillal to lay their eggs. Four different species of turtles are present, including the large and severely endangered Leatherback and Ridley sea turtles.

The ocean water/beach quality in Junquillal is excellent. It is so good, in fact, that year after year, the area wins the coveted “Blue Flag” award.
The beaches in Junquillal offer some of the best surf casting fishing experiences that can be had anywhere in the world. There are great surf breaks that encompass the needs of the beginner to the adventurous expert, long board or short board, paddleboard or kayak. If you hike around low tide from Junquillal village to the north along the beach you get to Playa Blanca, a delightful white sand swimming beach bordered by a rocky outcrop with many tide pools, great for playing or snorkeling. A little bit further on comes Playa Callejones, and after 3.5 km you arrive at the world-class surf of Playa Negra. Surfing and stand-up paddle boarding lessons are readily available they Pargos Adventures in Playa Negra.

South of Junquillal the road ends at the estuary of the Rio Nandamojo. A lagoon has formed behind the beach and a protected mangrove forests extends inland. Area kayak tours and paddle boarding are offered so you can venture up the river to admire the intriguing water jungle with its flora and fauna, monkeys, birds and maybe a possible crocodile on a riverbank. Around low tide - 3 hours before and after - you can cross the Rio Nandamojo by foot to the south of Punta Paraiso. A hike along the coast yields a fantasyland of beach wilderness where you can get lost in time collecting shells and taking in the views. The estuary is a favorite place for locals who fish with hand lines. On some weekends you see families having a picnic and enjoying Costa Rican 'Pura vida' with a barbecue of freshly caught fish, while children frolic in the waters.

Our location and weather makes for a perfect fit as a winter get-a-way whether for a week or several months, all year round.

No matter how you choose to spend your time here, we know your stay at Punta Paraiso will be exactly what you need!! Enjoy your stay! Pura Vida!!
