Santiago de Puriscal house description

Stellar Heights, Cima Estelar, is strategically perched 4000 feet above sea level in the mountain town of Puriscal, Costa Rica. Views of the Gulf of Nicoya (Pacific Ocean) are as common as commanding views of the entire Central Valley of Costa Rica from your mountain perch. Median temperature is 75 Fahrenheit or 24 Celsius year round.  Night views are just as spectacular as the stunning sunsets which enable one to see the sun sink into the Pacific as it performs its kaleidoscopic magic in the sky.

Set in the mountains of Costa Rica enjoy watching toucans from your balcony and watching the clouds roll up the mountain. This house has some of the best views in all of Costa Rica because of the altitude and views of the Ocean and Central Valley from one spot.

              Owner info

              About the owner: The quest for tranquility is one we all strive for. Having devoted 25 years running my own business and yet another 10 working for a Fortune 500 company, I opted for early retirement to continue my search. My previous life afforded me the opportunity to travel the world; China, Russia, the Baltic, Europe, Africa, South Africa, Australia, Greece and Portugal to name a few. Each time I visited a foreign country I tried to picture myself retiring in its midst with its specific climate, traditions and way of life. Portugal was on the verge of getting the nod until I discovered healthcare and taxes on foreigners were not conducive to my parameters I had established for myself. My first visit to Costa Rica was perpetrated by a business associate who indicated his parents had retired here several years prior. He arranged for my visit to see them and the rest is history. It is here that I find the tranquility that I’ve never lost nor ever will. It is here that I found a mountaintop that can now be shared for others to enjoy the views of the Pacific, and the Central Valley. It is here at Cima Estelar (Stellar Heights) that one can find a glimpse into the secrecy of nature; Toucans, parrots, sloths, iguana, giant woodpeckers and flora comparable to the Garden of Eden.

              Why the Owner Chose Santiago de Puriscal:
              It's an hour drive from San José International airport. Solitude, quiet and safety with phenomenal views.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Watch the sunset over the Gulf of Nicoya on your balcony set 4,000 feet above sea level.
