Spyglass House is unquestionably nice but . . . : . . . you will BRAG about the never-to-be-forgotten sunsets paraded before you every night on a private balcony and Infinity pool. Okay, Okay, Okay . . . you have the same view from three balcony's, the two bedrooms, living room, kitchen and dining room. As I had said before, like the Kohler faucet ad on TV, Spyglass House is designed around the breathtaking vistas presented from its location high on a hillside ridge with an unobstructed view of Ocotal Bay



Things to see, Places to go, Time to Enjoy . . .: Playa Ocotal is located 3 kilometers south of the popular beach town of Playas del Coco for shopping, bars, taverns and restaurants serving fresh seafood and night-life options. You can even have the fish you caught prepared for you at local restaurants. Playa Coco is the jumping-off point for ziplines, rafting, volcano tours, waterfalls, coffee plantations, horseback riding, surfing, deep sea fishing, diving, snorkeling, golfing, beach volleyball, beach basketball, nightlife, dancing, yoga, spas and massages,

The owner has been personally involved in the construction of this property requiring many years of patience and attention to details.   Built on a seemingly impossibly steep slope near the ridge line, using 62 concrete pylons going 10 meters into the rock, this house isn't going anywhere.  The 'broken tile' walking steps show a lot of patience in arraigning the pieces by hand.  The balcony hand rails are teak wood requiring a weekly application of treatment to maintain their rich look.  there is no walls facing the view instead there are floor to ceiling, wall-to-wall plate glass windows so as to not obstruct the view in any way.  The cabinets through out the home are crafted of teak also with attention given to clean lines and symmetry.   The finishing touch of carefully selected pieces finish the home nicely.

Note: Until confirmed, rates are subject to change without notice.
