Property description

This private home on the coast of the Pacific Ocean (2 Minutes Directly Across from the Beach) is 2 stories, offering privacy between levels, spectacular ocean views, 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, full kitchen downstairs with granite countertops and bar, kitchenette upstairs with granite countertop, refrigerator, sink, coffee maker, microwave and breakfast table, living room, custom swimming pool and full laundry room. Located on almost an acre, with a private driveway and surrounded by a lush rainforest with no neighboring homes close enough to disturb your privacy, you'll enjoy the spacious patio and 'botanical gardens' in peace and privacy. You'll thrill in the native trees and plants (pick your own bananas when in season) and wildlife that visit regularly, including toucans, macaws, parrots, colorful iguanas (harmless) and, occasionally, monkeys. A custom pool (December 2006) affords a luxury retreat from the day's activities.

Casa De Mariposas sits on almost an acre, has no contact with the street or public and is completely private and secure. We have a 24 hour Security/Manager who lives in a 'guest house' separate and down the hill from the main house and at the driveway entrance. This makes concern for the security of children a non issue as they 'roam' the patio and grounds.

Because Casa De Mariposas is isolated slightly off the coastal road with no other homes to see you, you feel you're in the middle of a rain forest completely isolated and very private yet the beach is just across the coastal road. You are ten minutes from the town of Jaco by walking along the beach or three minutes by vehicle.

The main house is completely protected by walls, terraces, artistic wrought iron fencing and gates. When you enter the front gate you are on a spacious patio that surrounds the front and sides of the house with separate patio tables, pool, glass blocked outdoor shower and plants and trees.

An added bonus as guests of Casa De Mariposas is the full use of The Club Del Mar across the street including their large pool and Spa. It is a private resort and can arrange all the activities you may want such as fishing, ATV's, zip lines, surfing (lessons, rentals etc.) etc. Their dining and lounge are 5 star and the staff will treat you like Kings and Queens as guests of Casa De Mariposas.

Casa De Mariposas has WiFi, Internet service and phone service to the USA. The entire house has 'state of the art' air conditioning and is completely furnished with all linens etc.

First floor -
Living room with large TV, Stereo, DVD and surround sound
Open granite bar to kitchen
Full kitchen with refrigerator, cook top (gas), microwave, coffee maker, toaster and blender. All granite counter tops
Bedroom with Queen bed and sliding closet; pull out twin mattresses
Full bath

Second floor -
Master bedroom with King, flat screen TV with DVD, walk in closet; pull out twin mattress
Bedroom with Queen and sliding closet; pull out twin mattress
Kitchenette with table for six, refrigerator, toaster oven, blender, coffee maker and Espresso maker
Full bath
Full wrap around balcony with Ocean views and sounds of the waves

The house is mainly all custom native wood inside with a spectacular ceiling upstairs.

You can choose from the many adventures that await you, including the thrill of a canopy tour or zip line, ATV adventures into the rainforest with waterfalls, rivers and wildlife, world class fishing, beaches - including some of the best surfing available in the world, snorkeling, hiking, golf, horseback riding (beach or rainforest), motorcycle rental, and, of course, the best places to eat!

A must on your schedule is a visit to Quepos and the World Famous Manuel Antonio National Park, less than 45 minutes from Casa De Mariposas. You don't have to choose between the rainforest and the beach because the park offers both. Packed with the most unbelievable animals, birds and flora, you'll walk the well maintained trails and come face to face with several species of monkeys, sloths, iguanas, toucans, parrots, macaws and dozens of other animal life, all in their unrestricted and natural habitat. Walk to any of the four white sand beaches and explore the tide pools or relax on the beach when not enjoying the blue ocean waters (85 degrees).

Don't be surprised if a family of friendly squirrel monkeys with a baby or two come and visit while you lay on the beach! For the coffee lover, don't forget on the way back to stop at Cafe Milagro located on the front street as you enter Quepos for steaming hot fresh coffee beans made the old fashion way. (Beware! Once you have Cafe Milagro coffee you will be hooked for life.) We are happy to assist you in planning your itinerary and booking your adventures. Our goal is for you to create lasting memories of your visit to Costa Rica.

Thank you for visiting Casa De Mariposas!

Maid and chef service available on request.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My husband, Les, went with some buddies to Jaco Beach, and they fell in love with this property. I grew up in Florida, and I used to feel sorry for the people who saved up all year to spend their Christmas vacation in Florida and there would be a cold snap. I've been to the property during December and the ocean water is 85 degrees! You never have to worry when you book in Jaco Beach. It is so unique and gives you the complete experience of the rainforest and the ocean. The home has magnificent native wood features, port holes throughout, - it's just so charming.

Why the Owner Chose Jaco:
It is so unique and gives you the complete experience of the rainforest and the ocean. The home has magnificent native wood features, port holes throughout, - it's just so charming. And the location is fantastic, just across from the beach and a short walk or drive into the town of Jaco, with all its fantastic restaurants, night life, grocery store and shops.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The views are spectacular, the location is the best, and the house is totally unique. What could be better?
