Our Story

Luxury In The Jungle

The Villas at Punta Gabriela

As you’ve read, Punta Gabriela is a private resort home with a main house and four villas. Three of the villas are detached from the main house while Villa 4 (the Penthouse) is situated on the third floor of the main house.
The lower level of the house is where you will find the kitchen, dining room, common area, Toucan Chuey’s (our indoor/outdoor bar) and access to the main pool area.

The second level of the house is the owner’s private residence and is not available for rent, except on special occasions. (Please call for rates.)

Each of the villas, including the Penthouse, sleeps two people very comfortably. If your traveling party is two or four people, you may be sharing the resort with others. A group of four couples or two families of four can book the entire resort for themselves by taking all four villas. Families with children under 10 can have their children stay in the same villa for a nominal fee.

During the holidays (Christmas Week, New Year’s Week, Easter) we only accept 7 night, whole property reservations. For 2013 we are accepting whole house Christmas bookings through the morning of 12/26. New Year’s Eve week is already reserved. Please contact us to reserve the property for either of these dates.

Whole property bookings made outside of Christmas, New Year’s and Easter will receive a 20% discount off the individual villa nightly rates.
