Casa Kingfisher

Location

San Buenas, Puntarenas, Costa Rica

Short Description

Newly Remodeled with great location close to golf, beaches and Ojochal

Description

This home is perfectly located in San Buenaventura and only 2 km (1mile) from the Costanera Highway, with paved roads except the last 200 meters. No 4x4 vehicles needed to get here - which is rare in this area.

Casa Kingfisher was newly renovated with a new couch (ignore the comments on the old reviews), a work desk, outdoor table in the backyard near the pool, new dishes, cookware, beach towels, etc.

Only 15 minutes to some of Costa Rica's most beautiful beaches (including Playa Ventanas), Playa Tortuga and the famous turtle sanctuary/learning center, private hiking on-site, 3km walk to nearby waterfall.

Casa Kingfisher has two (2) Smart TV's. One in the living room/sala and one in the master suite. They have access to Netflix and YouTube and other applications (each renter must use their own personal login credentials).

Home is located inside Villas San Buenas, which is located next door to Osa Golf Course. Osa Golf Course has clubs and carts for rent and is an enjoyable and challenging golf course.

Neighborhood

San Buenaventura de Osa is quaint, friendly and safe neighborhood. As one of our guests once told us, "This is the authentic Costa Rica experience." There is a convenience store in San Buenas (called 'pulparias') where guests can buy any essential item (soda, juice, milk, bread, razors, toothpaste, toothbrush, napkins, etc), a Catholic Church and several schools.

Please drive slowly as there are many children in the community. Also, don't be surprised to see a cow or a horse in the road, or a monkey or toucan in the trees.

San Buenaventura is located 10 minutes south of Ojochal (and all of their amazing restaurants) and approximately 15 minutes south of Uvita.

It is also located 15 minutes north of Palmar Norte/Palmar Sur. Palmar Norte has several large supermarkets, pharmacies and shopping. Palmar Sur has daily flights to/from San Jose

My two months at King Fisher
I love the community and always felt incredibly safe. I think we had a little difficulty getting the cable hooked up properly but I really did not watch TV. Everyone including pool service and yard service workers were tip top. I only had two issues. One was the couch which I stopped using because it hurt my back and second was the refrigerator . Some of my food would freeze and at time some of the food got wet. Not sure why this happened so I was careful to bag up or put food in plastic containers. Every thing else was great and I can’t wait to get back there.

Casa King Fisher
Nos gustó mucho el lugar, La Paz y tranquilidad que se respira. La casa está bonita. El aire acondicionado no funcionó o no nos explicaron como funcionaba, es un detalle, solo en las noches hacia falta. Algunos detalles menores, pero el lugar vale la pena.

Dominic
Un gran fin de semana
Mi familia se relajó durante el fin de semana en Casa Kingfisher. Fue un gran lugar para disfrutar del aire libre y escuchar la increíble vida salvaje.

Ronny
Loved it!
We stayed at Casa Kingfisher recently and love it! I would enjoy my morning coffee on the balcony and watch the sun rise up over the mountains behind the home. We toured Pavon waterfall (there's a big rock stuck in the middle of the waterfall), Playa Ventanas and other tours.

Jacqui
Relaxing. Great location.
Wonderful location for exploring the southern pacific area. We were close enough to get to our day tours, but far enough away from the hustle of the highway.

Jill R
Atmosphere, views and experiences were amazing!
Osa Property Management was super helpful in narrowing down our interests to fit our time frame. They had great ideas and organized super cool excursions for us. They really cared about what would be a good fit for our group. The atmosphere, views and experiences were amazing!
