Cabo Matapalo tower description

Combine equal parts adventure and tranquility and you’ve got the punta jaguar experience. Lovingly hand-crafted by the lovelies—eva and brian lovely-- and local artisans, the accommodations are luxurious but simple, artfully crafted from a mix of local woods—purple heart, teak, manu—and local materials. The hand built spiral staircase, hand crafted furnishings and cabinetry and artful windows to the outside world reflect the lovelys’ deep sense of respect and love for this amazing location.

And the location… beautiful water views of cabo matapalo will inspire you to catch a wave from one of the many local point breaks—suitable for any experience level. Saying that you can “see wildlife” here doesn’t do it justice. Capuchin monkeys, scarlet macaws, sloths, humpback whales, eagles, hummingbirds, titis, howler monkeys… these are the neighbors, and make regular appearances. The protected corcovado national park next door shares its incredibly wealth of bird, animal and plant life with us.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: Eva Fleischauer and Brian met on a fashion shoot in the early 90s; reconnecting years later. After sharing his secret place with Eva on several trips, he also shared his dream to live there fulltime. The two decided to go off the fashion and production grid and throw themselves into the jungle for real. They traded cameras and slates for hammers and a DIY treehouse in the jungle. Now a married couple, the Lovelys camped out in the jungle for two and a half years with no electricity, using ice blocks to keep food cold and a camp stove to cook as they handcrafted their dream home. Their efforts resulted in a beautiful three story treehouse in the jungle canopy, which they now lovingly share.

                      Why the Owner Chose Cabo Matapalo:
                      Punta Jaguar and the surrounding area offer something for everyone. From world class surfing to world class birding. Hiking, fishing, horseback riding, exploring the multiple diverse biospheres, or just relaxing in one of the most beautiful spots on Earth, your adventure here begins and ends with the natural world at our doorstep.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Tower:
                      Combine equal parts adventure and tranquility and you’ve got the Punta Jaguar experience. Lovingly hand-crafted by the Lovelies—Eva and Brian Lovely-- and local artisans, the accommodations are luxurious but simple, artfully crafted from a mix of local woods—purple heart, teak, manu—and local materials. The hand built spiral staircase, hand crafted furnishings and cabinetry and artful windows to the outside world reflect the Lovelys’ deep sense of respect and love for this amazing location.
