Property description

Our home was built in 2001 and is at the lower section of the property. You have a primary tropical forest behind the house full of all kinds local flor and fauna to observe. We have regular Toucan sightings as well as many other exotic birds that come up from the forest of the Grande River basin below the area. There are 2 bedrooms. 1 bathroom, and corridor downstairs and one large open room upstairs with full kitchen, living room and balcony that looks into the treetops of the forest behind the house. There is high speed internet and a land line telephone. There are many horse ranches here and with beautiful horses to ride. You can hike around the area and there is a little 'Pulperia' small store about 100 feet up the street for things you forgot to buy in town. It is very safe here, we have nice neighbors, the property is 1/4 acre. We have a couple in their own home who can help you with anything you might need while you stay with us. We are 900 feet above sea level, so the weather is really comfortable and the property is covered with trees which helps with the tropical sun. Marbelli and her husband Fabian live in a smaller house on the property and can help you with whatever you need during your stay. When you are ready to leave please let them know so they can receive the house, keys, and gate opener.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1978

About the owner: I bought the property while going to college here in Costa Rica. Built the two homes in 2001 and come down every 6 months from California to stay and work on other projects. I have been in Costa Rica since 1972 off and on and love the natural beauty, the people, and the climate.

Why the Owner Chose Turrucarres:
Villa Los Robles is like a 'Hub' for many travelers because it is so close to the largest cities, Alajuela, San Jose and close to all of the local tourist places to visit such as the Volcan Poas, our local Zoo, La Garita which has many delicious local eating spots to try Costa Rica food. Also, we are 2 miles from the new highway #27 so you can be down at the beach in 1 hour and some more beautiful beach resorts in 1.5 hours,, stay the day and zip back up the highway to stay here. There is golfing at the Cariari Country Club, and the international airport is 15 to 20 minutes away. Our little town of Turrucares has everything you need for food and beverage shopping.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Villa Los Robles is safe, we have cameras showing who comes in and out of our urbanization Villacares and you will receive a remote to open the electronic gate to get into the property with your car. We have a few books other guests have left behind, but bring some good books, your binoculars, and settle in for some rest and recuperation in our peaceful little piece of Costa Rican paradise!
