Cahuita tower description

'La Casa del Mango' is constructed of wood, metal and glass which is striking in its award-winning architectural design and provides unique accommodation for the discerning guest. Whether you decide to rent one of the rooms or the entire house; its facilities are open to you.

The swimming pool is the perfect place to cool off or top up your tan, on one of the pool side sun loungers. Surrounded by the meticulously maintained tropical garden; the scents and sounds of nature are all around you - smell those ilang ilang blooms! To see the iguanas and sloths that frequently visit the namesake mango tree, head up to the sundeck on the third floor. It is the perfect place to enjoy views of Cahuita's Black Beach, the mist-topped Talamanca Mountains and the green foliage that is abundant in this rain forested part of the country.

Sip your morning coffee at one of the stylishly-designed iron wrought tables on the roofed patio or in the garden or in the privacy of your own balcony off your bedroom. The hammocks on the private balconies are a favourite spot for an afternoon siesta!

The well-equipped kitchen is ready for the preparation of a quick snack to a dinner party with quality kitchenware and appliances to ensure that your meal preparation is pleasure and not a chore.

Relax or catch up on news with cable television and DVD player in the comfortable lounge area.

'La Casa del Mango' is a minute's walk from Cahuita's Black Beach, named for its shining volcanic sand. This long stretch of beach is shaded by almond and sea grape trees and is a popular place for swimmers and surfers.

The town center with its laid back vibe, offers a selection of restaurants, bars and stores and is only a fifteen minutes stroll away or 5 minutes on one of the provided bicycles. The stunning National Park, Cahuita's jewel, is just beyond the center and is a wildlife spotter's dream! The white beaches and clear waters are just as inviting as the jungle footpaths.
‘La Casa del Mango’s on site manager will ensure that your every need is met, so come and unwind in this home away from home.

                      Turtle-watching is an incredible experience and is a vacation must if you visit during the laying and hatching season. Imagine watching the huge females drag themselves up the beach to dig their nest and lay about 80 eggs, before lumbering back tot the ocean. To see the hatchlings emerge and struggle down to the waves is amazing too!

                      The Sloth Sanctury is a 10 minute drive away and allows the visitor to see rescued sloths, both adults and babies, cared for by the dedicated workers of the center. My children love to see the babies being bottle fed!

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About: The owners of `La Casa del Mango`are French Canadians who are busy running their massuer training center and printing company, but love Costa Rica and come whenever they can escape from the demands of life in Canada! Claude, Michel and Louise have been friends for many years and `La Casa del Mango`is their shared dream of an oasis of calm and beauty away from the stresses of daily life. The Property Managers, Nando and Sara, are a Costa Rican-British partnership, who have lived in Cahuita with their family for the last seven years. They have managed other properties in Cahuita and are eager to provide an outstanding service and friendly customer care. Oscar, the night watchman and Don Feliciano, the gardener, complete `La Casa del Mango`s dedicated and hard working team.

                      Why Cahuita:
                      After visiting Costa Rica a number of times, the friends chose to find a property to buy in the relaxed beach town of Cahuita. Finding nothing that was quite what they wanted, they invested in a piece of land and built their dream home themselves. With the aim of having nature all around them and views to the mountains and the ocean, their tower emerged as a way of meeting all their desires for the perfect place.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Tower:
                      Now that the pool is in place and the garden has been established around it, the house really is complete. The tower reaches up past the mango tree which gives the house its name and stretches up into the sky, for the visitor to have a 360 degree panorama of the surrounding mountains, beach, ocean and foliage. Finally, that haven of peace and tranquility can be savoured and enjoyed.
