                          Year Purchased: 1989

                          Why the Owner Chose Golfito:
                          If you want to spend a few days on the ocean in a tropical environment far off the beaten tourist track, the beach cottage is just right. An open hut with a spectacular view of the Golfo Dulce, accessible only by boat and surrounded by tropical rainforest. Don't expect a luxurious, sterile vacation home like in the Caribbean or Florida, but rather a simple typical Costa Rican country house. But nevertheless, electricity, a nice kitchen and even WLAN are there.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                          The beach cottage is the last house before miles of untouched rainforest begin. Thanks to it's isolated location, you can see parrots, monkeys, coatis, raccoons and many other animals. The beach is not private but is never used by people other than the house guests. The pleasant breeze, the view over the gulf, the sounds of the birds and frogs, the beautiful plants: you feel like being in paradise!
