Welcome to Casa Rector Beach House. This house is located one and a half hours west of San Jose (the Pacific side of the country). The house is approximately seven miles away from Puntarenas, a popular city in Costa Rica. The family-owned house is on a lot of property about two plus acres in size. The house includes six bedrooms: five of which contain their own bathrooms and one which connects. The rooms combined can accommodate twelve. The home is perfect for a group or for multi-families. The bedding and linens are supplied. The top floor of the house included the eating area and a full kitchen, stove, refrigerator, microwave, and utensils. Located on the property you can find six different types of fruit growing and many exotic flowers. The property also has a large, freshwater, ceramic tiled, in ground pool which is lighted by Sam Lighting.

I hope you read the comments that were left from past guests because it tells you much about our house

More Details: The pool is 3 ½ feet deep on the shallow end and 6 ½ feet in the deep end. Picnic tables and a barbecue hut are located around the pool. The beach is located at the edge of the property, we consider it our backyard. Once at the beach you can walk several miles in each direction. A gardener/guard is on the property at all times to ensure a clean and safe time. A cook or babysitter can be provided for an extra charge. The way the house is rented: we rent the whole house to the same renter whether it is a group or just a single family. December through April is the prime season.

Great Pool

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at the house. The best part about the place was the pool. It was clean, beautiful and right outside your bedroom door! They had pool toys and towels to use.
The listing was quite accurate. The pictures were very helpful. I was impressed with the fact that the house had a crib and a highchair for our kids. The house keeper and cook were very kind and made us feel right at home. We had a large group and the house fit us perfectly. With all the seperate rooms, each couple had their own room for privacy.
The lot was right on the beach, which was beautiful at night. The waves turned up the sand a little but it was still great.
The location was a little difficult to get to places but only because of the traffic around the country.
My only suggestion would be to have a list of local restuarants and good tours. It would be helpful to have a pitcure to send to people for the last turn to the house.
The house was perfect but the location was not ideal for our travel desires.
We had a great time. I would definately tell others to go, escpecially if they have a big group.
Thanks for everything!

Awesome Great place for the money

  • 5 of 5
This was an amazing place to stay. The beach was outside the back yard. We had a group of 11. There was lots of space for all of us. Maribel & Arturo took wonderful care of us. they kept the house and pool immaculate, shopped for us, did our laundry etc We wanted for nothing. Maribel is a wonderful cook we had planned on going out for a few meals we never did. Defiantly worth the extra money!! The house is in a residential neighborhood but we had no trouble getting a cab to go where ever we wanted. Varso travel picked us up/dropped us off at the airport and handled all our tours they are amazing. We saw a lot of the country. Michael, his Dad & Myron took wonderful care of us and I highly recommend them. Rich, the owner, was extremely helpful and answered all of our many questions. Coco, the dog, is wonderful. I also recommend going down the road to the Doubletree Resort for a massage. One of the best massages ever. When you can finally walk, you will be very relaxed, go across the street to the bar A great place to have a drink and a snack!

The pictures don't do this place justice. It looks way better in person. I went with a group of 9 for a 25th Birthday, and we had an amazing time. Maribel was great she cooked everything and even went shopping for the groceries. Vicinity to the beach is great since it's in the backyard. The house was clean spacious and perfect for a group. The pool was a nice size again extremely clean. The place is in a smaller town but it still was close enough to tourists attractions. Best to practice basic Spanish before going, but we all definitely got by. . We fed monkeys, which was maybe 10mjn away, ziplining was roughly 45min away, city if jaco more tourist-like was an hour. It was an amazing experience and I'd definitely go again!!

Heaven in Puntarenas

  • 5 of 5
I arrived to the property with a group of ten including myself. Everyone in the groups age ranged from 21-25. As soon as we arrived it was love at first sight! The provided pictures could be updated but it was even better than the pictures. From the excursions provided by Michael, to the hospitality of Alturo, to the amazing food cooked my Maribel, to the best dog ever Coco. Not the mention the beautiful pool! If you're more into open water the beach is literally in your backyard. It was a pleasure to stay in this location and I would recommend it for both families and younger groups.

I loved the house. The pool was refreshing. All the bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and well kept. I loved Coco the dog . The keepers of the house Arturo and Maribel were great. They made sure we were good at all times. I would highly recommend this villa to any group or family.

Wait, what!?

  • 5 of 5
This was by far one of the most memorable vacations I have had. Upon arrival to the home we were greeted by the man of the house, Authoro (forgive me if I misspelled). He greeted all of us en Español of course then showed us inside.

As soon as those big blue doors opened I saw that gorgeous pool with the colorful lights beaming from underneath. I dropped my bags in my AIR CONDITIONED room and jumped into the cool pool (which complimented the extreme heat).

When I got hungry for a snack I found some pretty awesome sandwiches and sliced fruit in the fridge. Days following, each time I got in the pool there was a fresh towel waiting for me.

Now, Maribel... She is the woman of the house. She took care of all of us; breakfast and phenomenal dinners (I got the recipe to that shrimp). This beautiful woman also went shopping for us on top of cooking.

We had a stereo upstairs and downstairs which made every day feel like a party. The huge net which replaced glasses windows kept all the bugs out.

Oh and before I forget... The best part is the PRIVATE beach in the back. Jesus Christ... Private entrance, clean sand and water... I WAS IN LOVE.

Like I said, a wonderful vacation.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Ferry : Puntarenas at 7 Miles Nearest Motorway : cr1 at 2 Miles Nearest Beach : behind the house Car: recommended

From the house it is very easy to make plans for sightseeing, fishing, rafting, and viewing the rain forest and volcanoes. A major hotel with a casino is located one mile from the house where all tourism plans can be made. The town of Jaco is a half hour by car south. It attracts many surfers for the beach's large waves and also tourists for its excellent restaurants and shops.
