Property description

Enjoy Casa Cacao your jungle Shangri-La for a true Nature Experience!
This is a spacious, new 2 bedroom, one bath home in a 6 acre gated neighborhood of 5 beautiful homes. The property is lushly landscaped with mature trees and plantings. A few hundred feet up, the gravel road leads into a 40,000 acres of virgin rain forest.
Designer decorated and with a fully equipped kitchen, washer/ dryer, top of the line appliances this vacation home is built to accommodate the Caribbean breezes, with a central cupola, 20 ft ceilings, huge front porch , and ceiling fans in every room. All the windows are screened. The living room and kitchen were designed with a great room concept. so you can enjoy your company while preparing dinner. Stylish new furnishings create a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere for everyone to enjoy. Three sets of over-sized cedar doors open the house up to the porch and the experience of the luxuriant tropical landscape. The spacious front porch provides a dining area with seating for 6 and a lounge area with comfortable seating and hammocks. , great for entertaining, having a drink or watching the birds and other wildlife.The kitchen is equipped with a large, new gas stove and a conveniently placed island, and a blender for your smoothies and cocktails..
Just a short walk to the beach, a great gourmet grocery store and several restaurants, this house is in a really choice location, close enough to the village of Cocles so that everything is accessible but far enough so you can enjoy the forest tranquility. We have built with comfort in mind, properties located right on the beach, are hot, swampy and quite buggy in most seasons, our home is located 300yds from the beach, on a slight incline to catch the breeze.
Ask about our Welcome fruit basket and flowers as well as our spa treatment package. ,WI-FI, SATELLITE TV AND ADT SECURITY! Please take a close and careful look at other homes being offered in our area and I'm sure you will see that this home's location and amenities are above the norm.. This is the vacation home of some finicky people who have lived in the tropics for years and have done everything to make themselves and you comfy.

Location

Car: Recommended

We are a short walk or bike ride from a variety of awesome beaches, surf beaches, snorkeling, you name it. In the other direction are 40,000 acres of virgin rainforest, abundant with wildlife, toucans, monkeys, jungle cats. This is a great place to swim or hike and just enjoy the marvels of nature.

 

Owner info

About the owner: Friends brought me to this part of Costa Rica in 2003 and I fell in love with the friendly community of Cocles. From the first night listening to the frogs, birds and monkeys, I was hooked and decided I had to find a way to return.

Why the Owner Chose Puerto Viejo:
I purchased the Cocoa Hill property in 2006, and completed the first home the following year, I have built 4 others at Cocoa Hill and have maintained the Caribbean architectural style. I wanted a property that was close enough to the beach, the grocery store and restaurants to walk or ride my bike.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Cocoa Hill was a former cacao plantation, and there are still many cacao trees on the property along with many other massive grand-father hardwoods.
