This Costa Rican piece of paradise sits amongst tall shade trees, on a quiet paved road just 6 miles from Jaco, a gorgeous hideaway for active travelers and those seeking natural beauty. This stunning bungalow combines luxury and convenience, to create a true island getaway that is as peaceful and romantic as Costa Rica itself.
This gorgeous three-bedroom home comes completely furnished with high-end fixtures and furniture and is located on a large, completely fenced in private lot. As you pass through the iron gate, you will notice lush, green landscaping on either side of the private driveway, complete with a native cactus right up front! A stone front patio area is great for kids to ride bikes or play without being out in the street, and the covered front patio is a great place to sit with a cup of coffee in the morning.
As you enter the home, an open foyer greets you with high, vaulted ceilings, traditional Spanish tile, gorgeous wooden accents, a flat-screen TV and lounge. The back wall offers a bright pop of color to this space, and you’ll find hints of this color throughout the common areas to tie everything together. A high top bar with bar stools creates a unique place to unwind after a long day of exploring. Adults can relax here and treat themselves to a nice glass of wine, catch up on their favorite TV shows, or relax in the ultra-plush couches. This bar and lounge area flows effortlessly into the fully furnished kitchen, complete with stainless steel appliances, custom cabinets, high vaulted ceilings, large windows, and elegant décor. Your family can prepare, cook and clean up after family meals with ease in this spacious kitchen. A formal dining area with glass top wicker table and four chairs is set right off the kitchen and creates an intimate place to share a meal or play a game of cards. A wall made out of traditional Spanish stone adds authenticity and originality to the home and combined with the other traditional design and architectural elements of the home, truly give you the Costa Rica experience from the moment you walk in the door.
The Spanish tile, vaulted ceilings, and elegant fixtures and décor are a constant theme throughout the entire house. You’ll see these elegant accents in the first bedroom, along with a Queen size bed, flat screen TV mounted on the wall, built in Cedar dressers to hold all of your belongings, and a large window overlooking the backyard.
The second beautiful bedroom has the option to open up the large window to let the light and the ocean breeze flow through the room. If you’re lucky, you may spot Toucans, Scarlett Macaws, Red Lord, and Yellow Nape Parrots nearby! A soft and warm color palette and décor make this room feel welcoming and safe. This bedroom has its own private bathroom, complete with a walk-in shower accented with a gorgeous dark stone wall. The stone vanity and mirror add an element of elegance to this spacious bathroom, and there are plenty of plush towels for you to use during your stay.
One of the most unique features of this home is the third bedroom, which is set apart from the main house. From the back porch of the main home, follow a stone walkway to a charming guest suite, which features two twin size beds. This set-apart room is great for kids who are seeking adventure or grandparents who are looking for a little extra privacy away from the rest of the house to rest and relax.
From the backyard, guests can walk to the tropical rainforest, where, if you listen carefully, you can hear howler monkeys in the morning! This once in a lifetime opportunity is (almost) literally right in your backyard, and takes about 30 minutes to reach the top of the mountain.
The back patio of the home is one of the highlights of the home. This covered back patio features a handcrafted table and seating for four, a BBQ grill, elegant lighting and unobstructed views of the property. This is an excellent place to have dinner as a family under the stars, or for the adults to enjoy drinks and appetizers after the kids go to sleep. Early risers can make a cup of coffee in the mornings and sneak out to this private patio for a relaxing start to their morning.
This home offers two bikes for guests to use while on vacation. The street that runs in front of the home is very quiet and there is little traffic, so you can feel secure enjoying the bikes nearby. It is fun to ride to the beach, which is only 1.2 miles from the home. A casual ride to the beach should only take you about 15 minutes! The small village of Jaco is just 6 miles away and is a breathtaking combination of rainforest, sandy beaches, and mountains. This is a popular destination for surfers, but also for families who are looking for authentic restaurants and shops, outdoor adventure, and exciting nightlife. Whether you’re looking to zip line through the jungle, relax amongst the waterfalls, or explore the Pura Vida Gardens, everyone will fall in love with something in this romantic, tucked away and unique Costa Rican hideaway.
Whether you’re looking for a quiet and tranquil nature tour or something a little more fast-paced, there are many activities nearby to enjoy. For those who like the water, you can go sports fishing, surfing, scuba diving, and kayaking. For land adventures, try horseback riding, zip lining, ATV riding and hiking the Carara National Park. When you want to take it easy, try a round of golf, bird watching or take a crocodile tour. There is so much to do, it can be hard to decide what to do first!
After a day of exploring, you’ll probably want to relax at home and send pictures of your tropical vacation with friends and family back home. This home has high-speed internet and Wifi, so connecting your laptop or mobile device, enjoying a cool drink on the patio and checking emails and posting pictures is easy to do.
On the days you’re not exploring, take advantage of the cable TV package, complete with HBO and Cinemax. Host a family moving night in the living areas, or retreat to your bedroom to catch up on your favorite shows.
This gorgeous home is the perfect mix of the comforts and conveniences of home with a luxury getaway. Modern conveniences such as air conditioning, a washer and dryer, and updated kitchen appliances and utensils make every day living a breeze. Local grocery stores, pharmacies, restaurants, and hospitals are nearby as well, allowing you quick and easy access to the things and services that your family needs while on vacation.
This charming home is located in the heart of Costa Rica, so you and your family can experience this gorgeous area as the locals do. From authentic markets to “off the beaten path” hiking trails, local restaurants, volcano explorations and tiny, historic villages; you can experience the authentic culture, music, food, and nature of this beautiful place.
