Why Margot Mellett chose Puerto Viejo de Talamanca

Our home is gorgeous! Private and in a quiet safe nieghborhood surrounded by nature! In the jungle by the sea! But close walking distance to restaurants, beaches, and available tours.

What makes this house unique

We are at the end of the driveway creating a private garden oasis. Also, there is a stream running along the back of the property with a small waterfall and natural pool. Our house floor plan is unique. The bedroom ensuite casitas surround the central living room area. The house is gated, gorgeous, private, and immersed in nature. The Artisan Tile center piece of our house on the floor of our Living room/porch is a handcrafted tiled compass rose, sometimes called a windrose, or Rose of the Winds. This is a figure on a compass, map, nautical chart, or monument used to display the orientation of the cardinal directions: North, East, South, and West—and their intermediate points. This is why we call our home Compass Rose. Welcome!
