San Ramon cottage description

WELCOME
We invite you to discover our Casita. This is not a large commercial development. You’ll be our only guests. If you’re looking for a party atmosphere, this is definitely not for you.
This comfy 500 sq ft cottage is a fully furnished and appointed one bedroom guest house on our 4.5 acre gated mountain-top ocean view property. The main house is nearby and the casita is situated to afford complete privacy.
Our mountain setting affords pleasant temperatures year-round, typically mid 70s days, cooling to the 60s in the evening. No air conditioning necessary.

BEDROOM & BATH HIGHLIGHTS
The master bedroom features a Queen Size pillow top bed with 100% cotton sheets, down pillows, beautiful hardwood bureau, side tables, reading lamps, and an alarm clock. 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.

SPECIAL FEATURES
• Free Wi-Fi internet access in the casita
• Tropical wood ceilings
• Ceramic countertops
• All water to the house is filtered and safe to drink
• Lots of large windows to take advantage of the incredible view
• Private lanai overlooking coffee plantations and the Gulf of Nicoya in the distance

KITCHEN HIGHLIGHTS
Should you want to cook, the small kitchen is furnished with pots and pans, dishes, cutlery, and a few essential items and condiments like coffee, tea, sugar, salt & pepper to get you started. There’s a small refrigerator, gas range, microwave, coffee maker, and toaster.

SAFE
We've installed a small safe in the casita for your use.

LOCATION
With GPS COORDINATES of N10 01.703 W84 28.507, our 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.

*THIS IS A TRUE 'RENT BY OWNER' NO SURPRISES OR HIDDEN FEES AT CHECK-IN OR CHECK-OUT.

              Year Purchased: 2009

              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

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              The cottage, or casita is the guest quarters on the owner's property. This is not a large commercial development. You'll be the only guests on the 4 1/2 acre mountain top estate.
