Casa Tranquila is a Tropical Oasis with Security and Full Amenities in a perfect location on the Pacific Coast! Our Costa Rican getaway is a privately-owned, beautifully unique home (approx. 2,000 s.f.) within a luxurious tropical garden estate setting. This secluded house is located on a private street in an upscale, guarded community with friendly & outgoing American and European neighbors. The home is perfectly located in the area's most impressive premier upscale community, as voted on by real estate agents in 2009.
The home is situated in a perfect location, with an easy 15-minute walk to the 2.5 mile long Jaco Beach. This spectacular property contains native fruit trees, an abundance of gorgeous tropical plants, and water features. Daily visitors stop by in the form of Scarlet Macaws and Toucans. The relaxing swimming pool is just 5 steps from a same level, huge tiled furnished patio area (approx. 300 s.f.) complete with ceiling fans, lighting and a dining area.
Located perfectly for an effortless 15-minute walk to the relaxed beach town of Jaco, you will find restaurants (100+), boutiques, bistros, ice cream stores, grocery stores, Farmer's Market, fresh seafood stores, yoga and fitness centers, music venues, bakeries, banks and casinos abound. Roads are paved and with sidewalks from the house to to town. First class medical facilities are within walking distance, along with pharmacies and rental companies for bicycles, cars, scooters, motorcycles, surfboards, scuba/snorkel equipment, ATV and 4-wheelers, etc.
It's only a 10-minute drive to the glorious Five Star Marriott Los Suenos Resort - which includes Restaurants, Casino, Marina and Yacht Club, and Golf.
The Jaco area is known for its pristine beaches, great surfing, and is also one of the greatest salt water game fishing locations (Dorado, Sailfish, Marlin, etc.) in the world.
Our paradise home that we offer to responsible parties is located a short 55 minutes from Manuel Antonio Park, which is Costa Rica's largest and most famous park, featuring monkeys and every type of wildlife imaginable available in Costa Rica. We can arrange for a privately guided tour of the park for you, if desired. Crocodile tours, zip lines, and horseback riding are close by, as are hiking trails where the waterfalls and views will amaze you.
Less than a 1-hour drive from the bustling international city of San Jose and the International Airport via the new Caldera Highway, this Pacific oasis is the closest beach community from the capital, and is perfect for couples or small families. It's completely secure, with Israeli-installed security system and electronic entrance gate.
Casa Tranquila contains cordless telephones, American channels on cable television, music system, wireless high speed internet, and air conditioning in the bedrooms.

In addition, the home offers filtered water and ice from the huge refrigerator, a dishwasher so you don't have to wash dishes on your vacation, a bar area, and 25' vaulted teak wood ceilings, with ample room for car or storage in the large garage.
Designer-furnished in Costa Rican style, our house is spacious with many windows and emphasis on openness and outdoor living. Each bedroom features huge windows that look out upon the tropical oasis in the backyard and pool area. Maid service is provided weekly and the Gardener/Pool custodian visits 2x per week.
