Property description

NOTICE: If this listing is reserved during the time you would like to visit Costa Rica please take a look at it's sister property. (616352)

Located 20 minutes south of the Quepos airport in the exclusive Hills of Portalon Estates, Vista Del Fuego offers breathtaking views that are among the finest available anywhere in the world. At an elevation of 500m (1,500 ft.), there is a constant breeze that keeps the air fresh and the temperature pleasant. Views of Manuel Antonio Park in the North and Punta Dominical in the South encompass a sweeping 45 km. vista of rivers, tropical rainforest, palm trees and several of Costa Rica's premier beaches. Views from the estate include a dramatic panorama of the Savegre River. In the distance it is possible to see beaches at Parrita, the Nicoya Peninsula, the Osa Peninsula and even Caño Island. Visitors to the 4.9 hectare (12.1 acre) estate can spend days simply relaxing by the pool, drinking Costa Rica's finest coffee and watching spectacular sunsets. Once you feel refreshed, adventure waits around every bend. Try an exhilarating zip line tour at nearby Hacienda Baru or ride horses through primary rainforest, savanna and mile upon mile of empty beaches. The world class beaches of Playa Matapalo are only a few quick kilometers down the road. Photos of the house and grounds can only begin to give you a glimpse of the wonders that await you here. The villa comfortably sleeps 10 people in five rooms. Completed in November, 2007 by Patrick Heinen of HEG Engineering, Costa Rica's premier home builder, Vista Del Fuego provides 300m (3,300 ft) of luxurious living on three levels and an oasis-style swimming pool. Spectacular artwork, created especially for Vista Del Fuego by Paul and Susanne Leasure after a visit to this beautiful country, adorns the walls.

4 wheel drive is an absolute must for any Costa Rica adventures. We have a very steep 200 meter approach on the dirt public road leading to our home that can be very intimidating to drivers with little off road experience. Most roads in the southern zone of Costa Rica are not paved, and conditions can change with the weather, so a 4 x 4 is the only way to ensure smooth travels. Experienced local taxi drivers and small shuttle buses (12 passengers) have no problems reaching our property. So please rent a 4 x 4, or hire a professional driver!

Year Purchased: 2012

About: Hola, Costa Rica lovers! My name is Jesse Castro, I live in Boulder Colorado with my wife Ann and our 8 year old daughter Lennon. Originally from La Jolla, Ca and growing up in the ocean, Colorado after 6 years comes up a bit short on tropical sunsets! Pictured above is me and my mother Sharon who followed us to Colorado to be near her only granddaughter. Sharon is a true California girl and jumped at the chance to partner with her son on a vacation home in one of our favorite spots in the world. Sharon is an executive with a fortune 500 company, specializing in corporate education, while my wife and I have been in the high end salon business for many years. Her a top hairstylist and me well... serial entrepreneur, adventurer, and 'Chief Bottle Washer'. We currently own a successful salon in Boulder Colorado. Being able to experience the contrast between the Rocky Mountains and the amazing South Pacific region of Costa Rica has made us feel blessed beyond belief. It is our absolute pleasure to share our beautiful 3 home estate with friends and family in this magical region of the world. We invite you to feel welcome in our little slice of paradise!

Why Matapalo:
This property has the perfect combination of privacy, security, and accessibility to the regions best beaches and attractions of the Pacific region. Perched on a high lot (1500') above the Pacific Ocean, the breezes and sunset views combine into tropical nirvana. Ten degrees (F) cooler than the beach and yet just a few kilometers away with an eagle eye view of the breaking surf. 'The Hills of Portalon' is a private 350 acre Eco-development, with just 27 home sites and more than 150 acres dedicated to rainforest protect.

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Vista Del Fuego is positioned perfectly to act as a private and secluded home base to countless adventures in the 'Southern Zone' of Costa Rica. The estate is located just 20 minutes south of Manuel Antonio and 15 minutes north of Dominical. It sits on a west facing hillside inside a secure gated property and abuts primary rainforest. The property has a seasonal stream running through the center adding to the ambiance. On the 12 acre estate sits two exquisite homes with 9 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. This would make a tremendous spot for special events; such as weddings, yoga retreats, or just a big family get together. Come enjoy this magical property! Pura Vida!
