Turrialba house description

Volare seems perched to fly - city lights and rainforest below. This area is the original adventure capital of Costa Rica, and the crown jewel -- the Pacuare River, is accessed from here. World Class adventure (National Geographic lists the Pacuare as one of the top 10 white water rivers of the world). Pristine nature. Costa Rica's only pre Colombian ruins. Cloud forest and exotic birding. Active Turrialba volcano - (much more active than Arenal, in the tourism center of Fortuna), Hiking in Indigenous territories, where you encounter people who speak only their native Cabecar language Immaculately clean waterfalls.
Volare is high above the city, and cool air makes Volare pure pleasure day and night.
Yet Volare is on a good quality paved road only 45 minutes from TerraMall, the country's second largest shopping center on the east sie of San Jose.
We offer a full service option, with daily cleaning and meal preparation from a menu both eclectic and interesting that accommodates dietary restrictions or your personal favorites.
3 bedrooms 2 bathrooms, well equipped kitchen, office in house. Very private but not isolated. Can be serviced daily by our employees.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2001

                  About the owner: I founded Serendipity Adventures, Costa Rica's most respected adventure operating company, in 1991, and I designed and built Volare on the most beautiful piece of land I had encountered in all of Cost Rica (but I admit I am very partial to grand vistas, clouds, and cooler temperatures - I suffer at the beach). When I sold Serendipity in 2011 I thought I would retire gracefully in Volare -- but all great plans somehow get sidetracked. I fell in love. And now I live with my partner on a ranch in the northern part of Costa Rica. But Volare is too much a part of my passion to just sell it, so I thought sharing it through rental would be a good compromise. And besides, the staff at Volare love the way we entertain guests and friends, ith dinners on the terrace under the giant roof, overlooking the city below.

                  Why the Owner Chose Turrialba:
                  This small part of Costa Rica is pretty untouched by commercial tourism, by big industry, by noisy traffic and crime. Volare has an even greater advantage - not on the road, but tucked behind a hill, so someone on the paved road in front won't even know we are here.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The openness of the house -- walls won't block you in. The deck is integrated into the interior space, and the doors are rarely shut during the day. The clouds. You can sit on the deck all day and watch the changing scenery. You can watch clouds form and ascend, or roll over the mountain behind the house and fall like thistledown into the valley. Only 50 minutes from world class shopping, only 40 minutes from primitive Indigenous villages, only 10 minutes from the departure for the Pacuare. Loads of private adventure and nature opportunities. An active volcano. Pristine waterfall. We in Volare are here for your benefit, to book tours or arrange meals or design your whole vacation (we have lots of experience with that).
