As in most places in Costa Rica my place would be better reached with a four wheel drive. I would be happy to introduce you to locals that can serve as a guide or driver. There are many local restaurants and a brewery within 20 minutes of the house. I live here throughout the year and feel very safe for myself and my family. Feel free to call me, Ed

I think I'll start this by saying this area is for those wanting to relax and enjoy what was. Personally its like going back 50 years in time from where the U.S. is today. No politics intended or wanted.

A place where you can enjoy nature, the local experience, or the Five Star Restaurants and bars in La Fortuna.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Actually, I had the house built for me with the help of some amazing people. I've been coming down now for about 8 years. We finished the house 4 years ago, although I look forward every time I'm down to do something new. Just did some mosaic work on the columns around the house. My experience with the local families and culture is why I am here as often as I can be.

Why the Owner Chose Saint Michaels:
First of all rain or shine this property works. 1000 sq. ft. covered porch lets you enjoy the winds and rain of November or the sunshine of March. 10 minutes from the main road, on a ICE (Costa Rica's Electric Company ) maintained rocked road you find yourself in rolling hills, overlooking the lake and mountains views. Close to a small town with a market that rivals Wal Mart inventory. A beautiful little church, and a soccer field.
