vacation rental description

Very private, exotic house with spectacular view over valley to the sea. Truly romantic, unbelievable
sunsets! The house is a labor of love, but the spot alone makes living here delicious.

Perched on the edge of a 50-acre tree farm, standing on the deck will make you feel you could take
flight and join the falcons, kites, toucans and flocks of chattering parrots that abound.
Hummingbirds visit nearby flowers (arbors and pergolas make plants part of the architecture), and
butterflies occasionally fly through the house!

Delicious climate. Because of the elevation, biting insects are almost nil. Days are hot but there's
always a breeze--no need for air conditioning; nights are fresher and good for sleeping. Unlike lower
elevations, the area stays lush and green even during the dry season. (Dec-April)

Bougainvillea, palms and other tropicals share the stage w/ azaleas, tree ferns, and jasmine, which
rambles up the outdoor showers. The gardens have been planted with perfume in mind. Mornings ring
with birdsong and are a good time for a hike. Afternoon heat is beat by a 5 min ramble to the
waterfalls- great for rainforest exploring and skinny dipping. A little dam creates a 30x40 ' jungle
pool. The water is clean and cool, the site wild and beautiful. Or you can go to the beach. ..

The house is well-situated right between Dominical, one of CR's premium surf havens, and San Isidro,
a bustling little inland city. We're 30 min from each.On the way to Dominical, reserve for a 1-day
horseback trip to Nuayuca Falls, a spectacular cataract and swimming hole. You stop halfway there for
breakfast and halfway back for lunch at the family ranch w/ resident toucans and scarlet macaws.
Dominical is a bit of a scene; you'll find several restaurants and nice surfer atmosphere. There are
several nature reserves w/ wildlife tours, zip-lines through the canopy, deep-sea fishing packages
(some of the best in the world), and tennis at Rio Mar. 15 min south is Ballena National Pk, a
gorgeous string of beaches.

San Isidro is the place to shop for food and anything else you might need. We try to time our errands
for Thursdays & the huge open-air market where you find everything from organic arugula to sugarcane.
The well-stocked supermarket La Corona has good wines and delicious CR beer.

Back at the farm , be greeted by a wonderful Tico couple who caretake; their home is a sort of gate
house. Jose is cheerful, responsible and handy, the lovely Maria can be hired by the hour ($3) to
babysit, housekeep or do laundry. Both are smart and trustworthy. About 1/4 mile past their house and
into the farm is our home. The floor plan consists of 4 separate structures to provide maximum
privacy:

The main house is open on 2 sides (unless you prefer to close the accordion wood doors), and has a
terracotta tiled floor and beautiful hardwood cathedral ceiling. It has been the scene of many
parties! A kitchen with every possible accessory (we love to cook!) gives onto the dining area, where
a hardwood table seats eight, ten in a pinch. The LR boasts a bamboo daybed, coffee table, and 4 teak
lounge chairs. Finally, there's a module housing a fortified storage room, pantry, and a BR with
toilet + Mexican ceramic sink/vanity. A ladder climbs to the top of this module, where a loft can
sleep up to 4 kids
.
Right of the main house, separated by a flower-decked mortar wall, is the master cabina. A smaller
version of the main house w/ hardwood ceiling and accordion doors framing a similarly gorgeous view,
it holds a queen bed w/ lge custom mosquito net, bamboo armoire, and built-in closet. Italianate
tiled floors and outdoor shower; shower and sink screened by jasmine and orchids + a small private
garden and seating area provide charm and intimacy.

A second cabina is perched above-right from the first, screened by a garden. It has its own tiled
deck and outdoor shower with great view, hardwood ceiling, screened windows. Inside is a queen
bed,closet, and small bath with toilet with funky Mexican sink.

The 3rd cabina is left of the main house, down the deck through a pergola. It has an italianate tiled
floor and hardwood ceiling set upon four white columns. Locally-made bamboo blinds shield morning
breezes. A fragrant hedge provides intimacy and frames a private garden with a table + 4 chairs in
teak. Dble bed with generous net, armoire and chairs are all locally-made of bamboo, and a hammoc is
slung between 2 columns. It too has a sink/vanity + shower and is very romantic!

Teenagers often stay under a huge canvas roof structure with a tiled floor over by the vegetable
garden/nursery (fresh herbs, etc) It has electricity and water, dble & single bamboo beds/ custom
netting, but is definitely more funky, which has its charm. Solar garden lights show the way at
night.

One of the owners is an artist, and the handmade details and gardens reflect this; her husband is an
MD, and so water quality systems and building materials were carefully chosen. Our guests have all
loved staying in this house!
