Property description

These properties are magnificent tropical paradises surrounded by modern convenience. These Ocean View duplex Villas sit 400 feet above the Golfo Dulce. The back and side yards offer 270-degree views of the ocean and mountains, which are accented by the lush jungle surroundings. The mountains of the Osa peninsula drape the crystal blue waters of the gulf creating a tropical collage. This is truly a place where nature meets its origin.

When not being entertained by the view or exotic wild life, play a game of darts, horse shoes or stroll the properties gardens and orchard. You can also visit one of the many neighborhood waterfalls, one of which is a 10 minute walk from the house. The nearest beach and surf break is 2 km from the house with the world renown Pavones wave just 4 miles away.

The property is quietly situated just a few minutes outside of the main town of Pavones and is easily accessible from the main service road (no off road trekking required to arrive safely at this property). It is secured by a full time caretaker, offering peace of mind, privacy and security, so you may relax and enjoy your ultimate adventure vacation

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I am originally from the San Diego area of Southern California. I grew up by the beach and have always enjoyed the life style and abundance of outdoor activities that ocean living provides. In 1978, just 6 months out of high school, I embarked on a 6 month surf adventure, traveling throughout most of the countries in Central America. I was immediately drawn to the people, culture and raw beauty of the land. It was an experience that changed my life. After returning to the states, I dreamed of some day owning a home in the tropics of Latin America. In 2004, I realized my dream by purchasing this magnificent property in the Pavones area of Costa Rica. So far ownership in the tropics has been an incredible experience, an experience I hope everyone has the opportunity to enjoy. Life in Pavones is 'Pura Vida'.

Why the Owner Chose Puntarenas, Costa Rica:
The area of Pavones and the Osa peninsula have been relatively untouched by development. It is a place where you can go to experience world class surfing and fishing, while being surrounded by broad variety of plants, animals, birds and marine life. It's like being in a zoo without cages. I love the rugged beauty of the area, culture and beautiful nature of the people.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The view of the ocean and mountains is incredible! I really enjoy being able to view a variety of wild life from the house or while wandering the property. The house is easily accessable from the main road and is in the safe and secure neighborhood of Cuervito de Pavones. The property is loaded with fruit trees which make great morning, afternoon or evening snacks. You may be in the jungle, but you won't miss the modern conveniences of home when staying at Paraiso de Miguel.
