Located in the sought-after district of Jan Thiel, this beautiful ground floor apartment comes complete with spectacular sea views of the blue Caribbean. You will also be treated to a bird's eye view of some of the most gorgeous sunsets you will ever see. The property is part of the popular Boca Gentil Resort with its magnificent landscaping and 24-hour security. The closest beach to the apartment is Jan Thiel beach which is about a 5 or 6 minute walk to the west of the apartment. The location is ideally suited for diving and snorkeling. There are also many restaurants and stores, two dive shops, a spa and a casino along this beach. Beach access is free for Boca Gentil guests but there is a small charge for renting the sun lounges. Of the restaurants there, the Zanzibar is the most reason...Located in the sought-after district of Jan Thiel, this beautiful ground floor apartment comes complete with spectacular sea views of the blue Caribbean. You will also be treated to a bird's eye view of some of the most gorgeous sunsets you will ever see. The property is part of the popular Boca Gentil Resort with its magnificent landscaping and 24-hour security. The closest beach to the apartment is Jan Thiel beach which is about a 5 or 6 minute walk to the west of the apartment. The location is ideally suited for diving and snorkeling. There are also many restaurants and stores, two dive shops, a spa and a casino along this beach. Beach access is free for Boca Gentil guests but there is a small charge for renting the sun lounges. Of the restaurants there, the Zanzibar is the most reasonably priced and has great food. Some of the other restaurants on Jan Thiel beach are a bit more pricey but provide a variety of culinary experiences. There is also a very casual and even more reasonaly priced restaurant called Pop's Place (good local fish dishes) which is on Caracasbaai beach, about a 7 minute drive (30 minute walk) east of Boca Gentil. There is a communal pool just steps from the apartment. This pool is shared among only 12 apartments. There is also a somewhat bigger pool located right at the ocean's edge directly in front of the Papagayo Beach Hotel - a complex of white buildings about a 5 or 6 minute walk west of the apartment. This pool, along with the sun lounges beside the pool, is for the use of the guests of Papagayo Beach Hotel and Boca Gentil Resort at no cost. However, make sure you bring your beach passes which the property managers will have given you upon check-in, as you may be asked to show these at this pool. For children there is also a large walk-in salt water swimming pool located on the beach, right beside the ocean, just a few steps farther west of the Papagayo Beach Hotel pool. However, there is a small charge for renting the sun lounges in this area. There is a modern, fully equipped gym and sauna about a 5 or 6 minute walk away. It is called The Challenge Sports & Health Club. There are usage charges for this facility. The gym offers daily, weekly, bi-weekly or monthly memberships. Near Jan Thiel there are also several bays, such as the Caracasbaai and Spanish Water. Here you will find activities such as sailing, windsurfing and kayaking, and for history buffs the enduring Fort Beekenburg (dating around 1703) and Quarantine Building (around 1883) representing the history of the area. In addition, Jan Thiel has a nature reserve with old salt pans. This area is a bird watcher's paradise, where you will regularly find flamingos, pelicans, parrots and many other species of tropical birds. The nature reserve is also ideally suited to running or mountain biking. Buggies and quads can also be rented for an adventurous trip. This luxury suite features 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a large living room with a flat-screen TV and a DVD player. Also included is free high-speed wireless (Wi-Fi) internet. The kitchen faces the terrace, and by opening the shutters you get a bar with stunning views of the sea, where you can see the local fishermen sailing by, or enjoy the many cruise ships that come along. The kitchen sports a spacious open layout and comes complete with all appliances, including a large fridge, oven, dishwasher, microwave, and washing machine. The master bedroom features an en-suite bathroom equipped with two sinks, a shower and toilet. The master bedroom has twin box springs and a walk-in closet. The two other bedrooms open onto the hallway. In each bedroom there are two single box springs and these rooms share the second bathroom. As such the apartment can comfortably accommodate 6 guests. Of course, all bedrooms are also equipped with air conditioning. On the spacious deck you'll find sunbeds and a large dining table. The deck is located higher than the road and is surrounded by gorgeous landscaping, giving you a great deal of privacy.More

About the neighbourhood
Check out the following YouTube link for an overview of the Jan Thiel area: http://youtu.be/fZA0pQEWoK0 (you may have to copy and paste this into your browser).
