About the Property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Set in the jungle, above the village and beautiful beach of Matapalo on the Pacific Coast, this house invites you to have a true Costa Rican experience! Even the 4X4 road to the house is fun! Just minutes from the beach, there is an amazing 180 degree view of the ocean. Enjoy the local sightings of toucans, parrots, soaring hawks, several kinds of monkeys, coatis, blue morpho butterflies and many other wildlife visitors from the patio deck, while still being close to lots of activities and unique adventures. Have an action-packed vacation or just lie in the hammock by the pool and read.

The house has an open, comfortable feeling with tile floors and beautiful wood ceilings and doors. The kitchen, dining room and living room all open to each other and the outdoors. Ceiling fans throughout the house keep the cooler mountain air moving. Downstairs there is a master bedroom (queen bed) and connected bathroom, a single bed tucked under the stairway and another full bathroom. Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms (1 w/double bed and single bed and 1 w/double bed only) and 1 full bathroom with a covered deck for bird watching and sunset cocktails.
