The bath has ceramic tile floors and walls, hair dryer and an over-size glass enclosed shower. The light fixture, towel bars, mirror, and shelving are custom wrought iron, crafted by a local San Ramon Ironworker.

LOCATION
ur property is located in the mountains 15 minutes from downtown San Ramon on an excellent two lane paved road. We're at an altitude of 4850ft with breathtaking views of the city of Puntarenas 30 miles away on the Gulf Nicoya, the Nicoya Peninsula, and Pacific Ocean beyond.

San Ramon is a medium size city with all services including an excellent hospital, universities, service stations, several supermarkets, many small restaurants and sodas(small restaurants serving typical Costa Rican food, and a small modern mall with a three screen multiplex.

Our central location is perfect for day trips to explore the area. We’re 45 minutes from the airport (SJO), and less than an hour to Pacific beaches, Sarchi, or Zarcero. Poas and Arenal volcanos, cloud forests,zip lines, hanging bridges, and bungee jumping are all within an hour or two away.

About the owner: Your hosts, Norm & Collie came to Costa Rica from the Seattle area in 2008. Collie retired from a nursing career, and Norm was, most recently, a computer network engineer, and prior to that owned and operated a custom cabinet shop in Seattle. While planning their retirement home, they decided on a separate cottage for visiting friends and relatives. As construction progressed, they decided to share their corner of paradise. This is not a large commercial development. You'll be the only guests on the 4 1/2 acre mountain top estate. Je parle français
