Property description

Mango Vista is located on a private 17 acre, gated property surrounded by natural vegetation, cane and coffee fields in the community of Rincon de Salas de Grecia. The property overlooks the Central Valley, mountains and volcanoes. There are 4 other private residences on the property. The 2,500 ft elevation provides lovely breezes for daytime and night-time comfort without the need for air conditioning or heating. It's a bird-lover's paradise - most recent count of 100 species on our property alone. Relax on the large covered patio surrounded by flowers, mango trees, and palms in a comfortable rocking chair, a hammock chair or just sit at the patio table and experience Pura Vida!

Mango Vista is a semi-detached casita. The rental unit is small (770 sq. ft.) but has a well equipped eat-in kitchen, utensils, flatware, dishes, cookware, automatic coffee maker, toaster, food processor, blender, microwave, three-burner electric stove with oven, and large refrigerator. There are 2 bedrooms, one with twin beds (which can be converted into a king size bed), the second bedroom has 1 double bed. There are 2 bathrooms with showers. A small sitting room with flat screen TV offering Apple TV, Netflix and antenna for local service. Free local calling, free incoming local/international calls, Wi-Fi, and propane BBQ. Printer, iron, hair dryer, telescope are available. Linens, bath towels, paper products and liquid hand soaps are provided. Covered parking is located beside the bodega which houses the washing machine. Garbage/recycling pick-up once per week, maid service 3 days per week (schedules vary at Christmas and Easter).

The nearest town is Grecia, population around 25,000, a 10 minute drive by car, 20 by bus. The shops, supermarkets, banks and restaurants of Grecia offer everything you need. The Friday night/Saturday morning Farmers Market is not to be missed! A further 10 minute drive takes you to Sarchi, a tourist town known for its painted ox carts and souvenirs. Poás Volcano is less than an hour's drive. Day or overnight excursions can be made to rain forest preserves, botanical gardens, butterfly gardens, bird zoo, a serpentarium, coffee tours, Arenal Volcano or eco-challenges of bungee jumping, white-water rafting and canopy zip-line tours to name a few. The beautiful beaches of the central Pacific coast are 60 minutes away. Downtown San Jose, a 45 minute drive, offers theatres and galleries and an amazing variety of international cuisine in fine restaurants. It is a 20 minute drive to the San Jose International airport.
