“Bargain.”
Reviewed 2 January 2013 for a stay in December 2012

This vacation rental is a bargain, the property is located right on the beach. The beach is secluded, clean and beautiful. The apartment is clean, comfortable and well appointed. Gary, the owner, is very friendly and helpful. There's a well stocked mini market about a mile away where you'll find just about anything you might want in order to prepare your own meals. Great place to have a relaxing and inexpensive vacation.

“What more do you need?!”
Reviewed 28 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

We stayed two nights at Plumita Pacifica on our way further south. The rental units (there are two) are well-equipped, with a full kitchen, air conditioning, wifi and a separate bedroom...there is furniture for both inside and outside. The property is beachfront, with a dark sand beach and decent wave action for boogie boards, but surfing is about 200m to the north. There are several decent places to eat within walking distance, and a supermarket within 1km. The best part of Plumita is, however, the owner, who is both a wonderful guide to Costa Rica (and actually wrote one entitled "So You Want to Live in Costa Rica?") and a terrific story-teller...

“Relaxing and Laid Back”
Reviewed 21 November 2012 for a stay in January 2011

My wife and I have stayed at Plumita Pacifica for a month on three seperate occasions and have really enjoyed the excellent location and the comfort of our accommodation. The owner Gary and his staff create a very comfortable and tranquil environment. There are half a dozen restaurants within walking distance and the supermarket is only 2 kilometers away. The house is situated on a beautiful beach with wonderful sunsets and is an excellent place to walk on any time of the day.

“You will not be disappointed!”
Reviewed 21 September 2012 for a stay in November 2011

My wife and I stayed at this most beautiful place three times. The last time was in Nov/2011 for 10 days of pure bliss. The accommodations are very clean, as a care taker and his wife are on site 24/7 and security is not an issue. We leased a car from Liberia and parking is in a lighted area. There are two units and they are very modern. The beach is beautiful and you can walk to a restaurant in just about 10 minutes along the beach. There are many wonderful places to eat nearby. The road is not too bad, we did not have a 4x4 and there is no problem. The owner is very concerned about your well-being. We will return in a heart beat. The location on the beach is absolutely stunning. We either lounged under the palm trees or on the beach. It is so quiet and peaceful. We took a couple day trips, but for us we have been there before and now just wanted to relax and enjoy the local food in the towns nearby. Gary, the owner, will give you good advice if you ask. The caretaker does not speak much English. It gave us a chance to practice my Spanish. Again a great rate and you will not be disappointed.

“Omg. Secluded and on the beach! The best!”

Couldn't find better value for this great quiet beach location, known by surfers who come each end of day to practice. This beach is very quiet. Occasional local residents will stroll by, and they are friendly. We booked for two nights. It was the end of our holiday, coming from lots of hiking in the volcanic trails, etc...we wanted to just relax. The place is awesome. Gary is the owner and has two appartments available, so if you are traveling two couples, you can book both lower appartments. We could not believe the view and the sunsets. You can walk the beach for miles. The one bedroom apartment was great. The bed was comfortable and all amenities were just enough. You buy local groceries and drinks for your stay and can cook your meals in your little kitchen. There is air conditioning and fans too. There is no TV, but there is wifi available. Some awesome restaurants are very close by and offer delicious meals. At one of them, when you go around four thirty, you can see the howler monkeys in the trees. I recommend it. If I go back, I will definitively stay there. Oh, the roads to get to Playa Junquillial are one of the best ones in that region. It is newly paved uNlikeTamarindo road which is really bumpy.
