Beautiful 3 bedroom mountain house 10 min from the beach surrounded by rainforest, with a gorgeous view of the ocean and Whale's Tail formation. House has hot water throughout, Wifi, satellite cable, and washer/dryer! A lot of wildlife visit daily - toucans, monkeys, pizotes, and sometimes you can hear mountain pigs! Trails on site to see wildlife and a waterfall on the property. Secluded, private, very tranquil and serene location.
Our house has a spectacular view and is located in pristine rain forest with a variety of wildlife visiting daily. The house is in the mountains above Bahía Ballena with cool breezes off the Pacific that keep us a little cooler than lower altitudes but there are ceiling fans in every room for hotter days. There are 2 comfortable bedrooms in the main part of the house (all on the second story): one with a king bed, and another with a double bed, both with ample closet space. There is a beautiful bathroom with a spacious shower, large mirror, and generous lighting.
There is an optional 3rd bedroom with its own bathroom and a separate entrance on the first floor that is available for parties of more than 4. If you would like access to the 3rd bedroom and its bathroom for fewer than 5 people just send me a message and I will price it out for you.
The house has full size appliances including a washer and dryer. Kitchen is fully equipped - microwave, toaster, rice maker, blender, coffeemaker - (our oven for baking is not currently working but that should be fixed soon) the stovetop is working great . Indoor dining table for 4, outdoor table for 6 on the balcony porch, smaller table for 2 in the optional 3rd bedroom. Living area and Master bedroom have tv with satellite cable. 2 comfy hammocks to enjoy the serenity outside.
There are a couple of rough trails to explore - one leads to a waterfall on our property - recommended but the trail is narrow and steep in places so be careful and it is at your own risk!
It is very tranquil here and the house is tucked away from neighbors and busy roads. A 4x4 vehicle is required to get up the mountain road but the view and the seclusion is totally worth it. We miss the tranquility and the view (and I miss my toucan friends!) when we are away. You will not be disappointed.
Guests with less than 5 guests have access to the entire house on the second floor; guests with 5-6 guests have access to the entire house both floors except our secured storage room on the first floor. All guests have access to the laundry room!
Interaction with guests
We have a trusted maintenance worker and a caretaker/housekeeper that will facilitate your check-in and stay. When we are not at the house, we are in the USA - so we plan to stay out of your hair so you can relax and enjoy your vacation!
Other things to note
A 4x4 vehicle is required to reach the house - we recommend something with a decent motor because the last stretch is quite steep - do not recommend a Jimny or Bego which are popular budget 4x4 rentals. It is worth the $$ to go one level up if you plan to do any 4x4 driving in Costa Rica!
Please no smoking inside the house. No candles (a lot of wood flooring and walls), no pets. Children welcome - high chair/booster seat and crib available upon request!)
You will need a 4x4 vehicle.
Please ask if you have any doubts or questions. :)
