Tropical Paradise

Punta Gabriela

J

esse and I are native Floridians, introduced by mutual friends in April 2003, and, hand-in-hand, we fell in love on the dark, sandy shores of Costa Rica. Within two years, we married at sunset under the famous Almendro Tree in Playa Hermosa.

One day, while traveling in Dominical, we came across a challenging piece of land: it was slightly unkempt, and the grass was to our knees, but the views captured our souls. That’s where we built Punta Gabriela.

To the North, the coastline stretches to Quepos/Manuel Antonio. To the South are Dominicalito Bay and the Osa Peninsula. Behind us lies the jungle; in front of us, 180 degrees of ocean and horizon.

Be our guest and share our piece of heaven. May it captivate you as it did us. We look forward to welcoming you: your private villa awaits.”

Sincerely,

Karen M.

Run, don't walk! If you're on the fence about visiting, don't think twice and just go. You won't be sorry. This is quite honestly one of the most beautiful properties I've ever stayed at. The views are second to none. The amenities are spectacular. I promise you won't regret it!

It can’t get any better This was our best vacation ever. We decided to get out of the cold weather and lockdowns in NY and boy am Im glad we did. From the moment we were picked up at the airport in what I must say was the most awesome 4X4 12 passenger Mercedes van I’ve ever seen, all black and was like being picked up in a deluxe limo. Jesse the driver and Arthur his sidekick were the best, from the Yeti cooler filled with beer, water and fruit and the site seeing we did it made the trip most enjoyable. When we finally arrived we couldn’t believe the views, ocean in the front and lush tropical jungle in the back. Their motto luxury in the jungle is no understatement. They even arranged a chef to prepare appetizers and dinner which was waiting for us when we arrived. The staff was waiting for us to take down our luggage and show us our private villas and all they had to offer. Throughout the rest of our week we were driven to all the area had to offer, waterfalls , quad tours, surfing, restaurants, beaches and the list goes on and on. Jesse his wife Karen, Arthur, Karina, Minor, Liz, Andre and Laura spared no expense in making sure we were taken care of. All I can say is leave your worries behind pack light and show up at the airport and the rest is taken care of. We will definitely be back and sooner than later. Pura Vida Oren and family

Costa Rica Fun! This was my first time to Costa Rica. The property is amazing and Jesse and Karen are wonderful hosts. The views are spectacular! If you like to watch the sunset, this is a great place to enjoy them. This is a very unique experience. I saw the pictures of the property and expected it to be beautiful and we weren't disappointed. Jesse and team keep the place in looking great. The biggest reason I say this is a unique experience is because of Jesse and team. They genuinely care that the guest have a great time. They serve you a great breakfast every morning and help to plan and book all the excursions. It's like having a personal travel agent on premises. They recommended great activities - ATV, horse-back riding, and snorkeling excursion that everyone enjoyed. They will take you to and from each of the excursion locations. Had great diners in and out. Jesse arranged to have a chef come in to prepare a nice steak and seafood dinner for us after a day on the run. They also had great suggestions for lunch and dinner restaurants and they transported us to and from. No car needed.

Like coming home We visited Costa Rica, but what made the vacation so wonderful was staying at Punta Gabriela, where we experienced a wonderful family atmosphere with caring hosts and all our needs met with a smile. Punta Gabriela is not simply a luxurious accommodation with dazzling sunsets and stunning views of the ocean below, but a place where we came to better know Costa Rica, its culture and people, through our hosts. Plus we were driven to local shops, restaurants, beaches and towns by the owners and advised on the best activities available to enhance our visit. Punta Gabriela can be whatever Costa Rican vacation you'd like it to be; from relaxing to adventuresome. We made friends there and would return in a heartbeat. Great memories, fantastic place!

Best Vacation We Have Ever Had! We arrived to Costa Rica and were greeted by Edwin from Punta Gabriela on time. He drove our family to Punta Gabriela which has to be one of the most stunning vacation homes we have ever stayed at and "we travel alot". The service provided by Edwin and his staff during that week made us feel like family. He took care of every detail of our trip to Costa Rica. During our stay we had Edwin cook for the family and although he does not call himself a chef, every meal cooked by him was incredibly delicious and I would be safe to put him up against any chef in that area! He helped us arrange our tours and took us to every destination we wanted to visit while we were there. The house is equipped with everything a family needs to have a great stay. It is extremely clean and well maintained and just plain beautiful! It is nestled on a hill and the views of the Pacific ocean are breathtaking. I highly recommend Punta Gabriela to anyone looking to experience Costa Rica. Our experience was second to none. Edwin and his staff are truly professional in every way and they make sure you have everything you need while you're there and most importantly that you are having the vacation of a lifetime. We plan to go back very soon to visit our new friends at Punta Gabriela! I cannot say enough about our great experience, the beautiful house or Edwin and his staff! My wife celebrated her 51st birthday at Punta Gabriela and Edwin planned a surprise party for her that we will never forget!

Heaven on Earth!!! Wow, wow!! Where do I start. My family and I stayed there for a week and we did not want to leave. We rented the whole property for ourselves. The property in itself is beautiful, the views are spectacular , rooms are very spacious and super clean. The zip line on the property is great way to see a beautiful sunset or see whales. The caretaker of the property is Edwin. He will spoil you and makes you feel like family. He cooked all of our meals and we loved ALL of them. Edwin and his staff take pride in everything they do. Our meals and our excursions were all taken care of by Edwin. We had no complaints! I can say it is our best vacation we have ever taken as a family. We celebrated my birthday there and Edwin and staff threw a small surprise party for me. A beautiful dinner, delicious cake, balloons, streamers, and a guitar player!! I was so touched by this, i will never forget that birthday celebration. I can go on and on. The views from the property, the villas, the pool, the service is beyond words. Thank you! Thank you, Edwin for treating us like family. We will never forget you or the beautiful property. We will definitely be back again and I would recommend this property 100%.

Trip of a Lifetime! I do not even know where to start. This trip was absolutely AMAZING from start to finish. I went with a group of friends to celebrate a birthday. Edwin picked us up from the airport and we began the 3 hour drive to paradise. TIP: buy your liquor at the airport as the stores charge quite a bit closer to the property. The property and the views it offers is breathtaking. I stayed in one of the villas. All the sleeping quarters are comfortable and peaceful. All villas had a coffee maker in the room and a fridge. Not all villas have a tv, but in a world full of technology it was nice to disconnect. In the mainhouse there are 2 other bedrooms and a beautiful penthouse with its own private jacuzzi over looking the ocean. We enjoyed coffee every morning by Villa #1 in the jacuzzi and infinity pool over looking the ocean. Our days were spent by the main pool where the drinks flowed, music played, and good company was shared. We enjoyed sunsets from the roof , which is also a Helipad, and from their own private treehouse. We went on a few excursions such as white water rafting and an all day ATV trip to a waterfall. They also have their own zipline on property. We walked on Dominical beach and shopped the local shops and ate at a brewing company. All of these things were located close to the property. Now on to the man of the house, Edwin. By the time we left we felt like family. Edwin was AMAZING! The first day we were there we went over our menu for the week and went shopping. Every meal was cooked for us and the food was amazing. I am missing his fantastic breakfast. You must request the fruit pancakes (pineapple, watermelon, mango). They even have a brick oven for pizza. Our homemade pineapple and chorizo pizza was perfect. Many times we needed to run out to the store and either Edwin would drive us or he would make the run for us. The rest of the staff was friendly and kind. Liz was very sweet and helped with breakfast every morning. On the way to the airport back we opted to fly out of Quepos on a smaller plane that took about 20 mins. This was a trip of a lifetime and if you have a chance to visit Costa Rica Punta Gabriela is the way to go. I cant wait to visit again.

Excellent Stay! The property itself is beautiful and has an excellent view of the surrounding area. There are plenty of things to do on the property as well as many excursions to take in the immediate area. On property staff are extremely kind and helpful to whatever you need. The rooms are excellent and very comfortable. I would highly recommend visiting for a few nights.

BEST VACATION EVER!!!!! Punta Gabriela was the best vacation ever! The staff and the amenities that it brings to its guest are 10/10. I had so much fun every single day on this trip and would recommend it to any one that wants to get away or has never been to Costa Rica before. Edwin, who is the caretaker on the property, was amazing. He cooked us breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and let me tell you, it was amazing every single time. He took care of us and made sure we always were having the time of our lives. The property is stunning and the rooms are so amazing and comfortable! The views are to die for, with 180 degree views of the ocean and the jungle surrounding you, I mean how much better could it be! Will definitely be coming back! We love Punta Gabriela!
