                              About the owner: A native Chicagoan, retired from the corporate world, and after visiting Costa Rica on vacations, I decided it would be my retirement paradise

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              What makes this property so unique is it's magic! Sometimes I never left for days just enjoying the privacy, peace and the wildlife. You can be outside in the nude. 8 ft. fence all around camoflauged by trees and bushes. The garden faires and frogs greet you every morning; if you put out papaya or bananas on the perch, you will be visited by birds and blue morphos in the afternoon. Be mesmerized by the moonlight and starlight that embrace the master bedroom.
