Overview

About the property

Newly renovated 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath vacation home sleeps 8-10

A newly renovated house located above a very private beach, Coco Flotante offers comfortable, elegant indoor and outdoor living spaces and magnificent ocean views.

Ocean breezes and the sound of surf fills a house that offers spectacular sunset views from every room. Eight to ten people can stay here very comfortably, but smaller groups will also find the home's intimate spaces welcoming and well-proportioned. The first floor offers two private master suites with king beds and en suite baths, plus a living room with TV, a well equipped kitchen, and a laundry room. On the second floor, a beautifully appointed bedroom with queen bed enjoys its own private floor-to-ceiling ocean views and shares a double vanity bath with the spacious twin bedroom down the hall. The bar and spacious lounge is ideal for watching sunsets.

The heart of the house is its beautifully landscaped outdoor living space, with large open air dining table, hammocks, ranchero, and intimate sitting areas just outside both of the two first-floor master suites. Relax in the infinity pool, nap in a lounge chair with palms rustling overhead, or retreat with drink in hand to a comfortable chair under the shade of the ranchero when the sun is strong.

The location is nothing short of spectacular, with unimpeded views of the Pacific and direct access to two beautiful beaches, which offer sand, surf, snorkeling, and a distinct lack of crowds.

Located little more than an hour from the airport in Liberia, or forty-five minutes from either Tamarindo or Santa Cruz, the village of Junquillal is easily accessible but not overly developed. You won’t find nightclubs and streets lined with shopping here, but if you’re looking for a laid-back, quiet, authentic setting with easy access to all kinds of options, you’ll love it. There are several excellent restaurants in the immediate area. Local tour guides can arrange horseback, zip line, or jungle river tours; and hiking, caving, birding, mountain biking, scuba diving, or deep sea fishing adventures. Just two miles to the north (a half hour walk on the beach) is the world class surf of Playa Negra. Surfing and stand-up paddleboarding lessons and estuary tours are readily available.

A five minute walk brings you to the long, flat expanse of Playa Junquillal and its Turtle Nesting Sanctuary, which has received global recognition. From the lawn of Coco Flotante watch for low tide at Playa Blanca and you’re only two minutes away from fantastic snorkeling. Palo Verde National Park is one hour from the house and Rincon National Park is two. One of Costa Rica’s finest golf courses is located a half-hour away at the luxurious Hacienda Pinilla.

The Spanish-speaking caretakers who live on the premises are friendly and attentive. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.

True paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just had the most wonderful five days as a family at Coco Flotante. The pictures don't do the house or property justice, and we were just floored when we arrived. The house was incredibly spacious and private for three couples, although we spent the majority of our time on the patio and in the pool. Maria and Gama were the house caretakers and were incredibly friendly and helpful, and Georgina was available to help us with questions about the area and food. This property is incredibly special, and we feel so grateful to have spent five days there. Would recommend this to anyone, and we hope to return as soon as possible!

Voted by our friends as "Our Best Vacation Ever"!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on VRBO are beautiful but this place is even more beautiful in person! We absolutely enjoyed every minute. Georgina and the grounds keepers were absolutely fantastic! The owner has kept this home in amazing condition. We felt right at home and comfortable. We liked the very large refrigerator and freezer, washer and dryer. This house is in a great location. Nothing is too close and nothing is too far away. Transportation is readily available. We are so happy that we didn't rent a car/van. The 10 of us made some wonderful memories.

The house was magnificent and the view was breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been more pleased with the home and the location. It is a great layout to take a family or group of friends with outdoor living space and a lot of personal space. We would walk down the beach to snorkel and explore. We made a drive to the mountains which took about two hours but the relaxation the home provides is worth is all! Highly recommend!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't lie. This is an incredible home to stay in during your visit. We had two families in our group and the set up was very conducive to allow for separate space for each family. The entrance to the upper level is by an outdoor staircase. There is a living, dining and bar area upstairs, with a coffee maker, mini fridge and glassware. The views are incredible from here with large windows that open up , but no screens. There is plenty of outdoor and indoor places to hang out and relax. We had some rain during our stay and were still able to hang out outside under the covered porch without getting wet. Our children were in the pool everyday. As well as the hammocks. The beach is very quiet and a fun place to look for shells and explore the tide pools. We went snorkeling and boogie boarding just off our shore line. Although just 10/15 min walk down the beach makes for better surfing waves and the sand is perfect for sand castle building. Easy enough location to get to and from the surrounding areas. Local eateries are close by and delicious. We did stop for groceries further north closer to Tamarindo, 25min. A great breakfast lunch spot just up the way 20 min on dirt road is the Beach Box. Adjacent is Lolas, which is a great beach area for surf and boogie board. They also have a Coconut drink guy. The other direction is the turtle beach viewing. Highly recommend if it is the right time of year. Make a day of it and visit Nosara during the day and stay for the night nesting tour. There are 3 canopy tour groups within a 1/2 hour. On site care taker was very nice and helpful when needed. (there is a small dog named Cheetah that hangs out- he was friendly and wasn't an issue with our group) House cleaner was also very nice. Both spoke minimal english. An incredible stay overall. Not sure how you would be disappointed if you stay here.

Just returned from a stay in June 2016 .

  • 5 of 5

I have traveled to Costa Rica many times and this home is the nicest one I have stayed in by far.The house and the view is spectacular and every bedroom in the home is like a master suite. The view from the second floor is incredible and we saw many beautiful sunsets every night. We had howler monkeys visit the property and there were hundreds of butterflies of all different colors. The house is very well kept up and was cleaned everyday to perfection. There are wonderful beaches and restaurant's near by but we were also happy to have pizza delivered and just stay at the house because it is so fabulous. Georgina was a pleasure to work with and was available anytime I called to answer questions about the area. There are caretakers who have a home and live on the property but they really come around just when things need to be done and it was very private. The only bummer I can honestly say about this house was having to leave. If you want oceanfront this is your place to stay!!
