Property description

Rancho Tambor (Drum Ranch) is equipped with two completely separate living areas. Come with family and friends while maintaining your privacy. At no time will the house be rented to another party at the time of your rental. This guarantees complete privacy.

We are located on 14 acres in the rarest of tropical forests, the deciduous tropical forest. Horseback riding is available for our guests. We have a guard who will watch your belongings while you trek off to the isolated beaches of Playa Venado. There is a nearby estuary teaming with wildlife. There is a small river for kayaking.

The private pool overlooks the forest where you can view wild parrots racing across the horizon. Each morning and evening the howler monkeys talk away! Enjoy changing sunsets that reflect magnificently off the pool from the covered porch.

The entire house is equipped with glass doors that fold back to bring the outside in, giving the open-air feeling that is typical of Costa Rican living.

There is a general manager, housekeeper, and security. Breakfast, lunch,dinner and laundry service are also, available. Guided horseback tours may be arranged.

About the owner: Will help you finance this beautiful vacation home/retirement home. Whether you wish to go into partial ownership with a family member, or, buy this property for yourself, we can help with the financing. The staff is known to us for many years and are reliable, dependable and if you choose, will remain a part of a vacation rental service should you choose to continue using Rancho Tambor as a rental property.

Why the Owner Chose Playa Junquillal:
The property is utterly quiet with exception of the distant ocean waves and the wildlife. The tranquility is unsurpassed! The creature comforts are all set up in this luxury property. Guests return because they feel at home. The horses are a part of the allure and by the end of your vacation, you will feel they are yours! Freddy is the biggest part of the experience. He too will stay on with a new owner. However, if you are chosing to rent, he will be someone who will provide you with local flavor and service. He is a real Tico with a Pura Vida attitude towards life.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sale price is negotiable. Start your own business if you live here. Two separate living quarters each with complete kithchens and outdoor areas. Satellite TV, 3 jacuzzi tubs, 2 outdoor showers, isolated yet within reach of grocery stores and medical services. The entire buisness is set up, a turnkey business if you want to buy and rent out this beautiful home. OR if you simply want to live there yourself with endless opportunities to have your family stay with you while they stay on the other side of the house. There is 14 acres on which to build. The horses, furniture, water permits, cable, land-line phone, all come with the property. Cell service and phone are included with the sale and these numbers can be transfered to your name.
