About Judd Pilossof / Liz Duffy
LIZ AND JUDD ARE FREELANCE CREATIVES (FOOD STYLIST AND PHOTOGRAPHER) BASED OUT OF THE NEW YORK AREA WHO WORK FOR TV, FOOD MAGAZINES, COOKBOOKS AND ADVERTISING CLIENTS. WE CUSTOM BUILT OUR HOME IN ATENAS BECAUSE OF THE GLORIOUS VIEWS, THE WONDERFUL CLIMATE, AND CONVENIENCE TO THE SMALL NON TOURISTY TOWN THAT WE ENJOY. WE ARE LOCATED NEAR, BUT ALSO FAR ENOUGH FROM, MAJOR ROADWAYS AND THE AIRPORT SO TRAVELING TO SPOTS THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY IS RELATIVELY EASY. WE HAVE PUT OUR HEART AND SOUL IN MAKING THIS HOUSE OUR OWN STYLE AND WE HOPE AND THINK YOU WILL LOVE IT TOO.
Why Judd Pilossof / Liz Duffy chose Escobal
IN 2006 LIZ AND I WERE LOOKING FOR A SPECIAL PROPERTY FOR A SECOND HOME IN COSTA RICA. WE FOUND THAT PROPERTY IN PICAFLORA, THE NAME OF OUR SMALL COMMUNITY OF BALI STYLE HOMES. THE PROPERTY IS SET IN THE HILLS ABOVE ATENAS WITH SEVERAL 100 YEAR OLD TREES AND BREATH TAKING VIEWS. WE HAVE SPENT MANY YEARS CUSTOMIZING THE HOUSE WITH UNIQUE FURNITURE, ART WORK AND LANDSCAPING. WE ARE ALWAYS MAKING IMPROVEMENTS AND TAKE OUR GUEST’S SUGGESTIONS SERIOUSLY. MANY OF OUR GUESTS HAVE RETURNED TO RENT OUR HOME MANY TIMES AS THEIR EXPERIENCE AT OUR HOME WAS EXTREMELY SATISFYING. WE CERTAINLY THINK THAT YOU’LL LOVE THE EXPERIENCE AS WELL. ATENAS IS ALSO A GREAT PLACE TO RETIRE WITH A LARGE COMMUNITY OF ACTIVE EXPATS. ALTHOUGH SPANISH IS THE MAIN LANGUAGE ENGLISH IS SPOKEN BY MANY OF THE LOCALS AND ARE HAPPY TO HAVE YOU SPEND TIME IN THEIR WONDERFUL COUNTRY.
What makes this House unique
IN 2015 WE BUILT A THIRD BEDROOM ON TOP OF A DECK THAT OVERHANGS THE RIDGE MOUNTAIN WITH ITS OWN PRIVATE BALCONY LOOKING OUT AT THE SPECTACULAR VIEW WE LOVE SO MUCH. THE NEW BEDROOM HAS A PRIVATE INDOOR/OUTDOOR SHOWER THAT ENABLES YOU TO WATCH TOUCANS AND OTHER BIRDS IN THE TREES OUTSIDE. THERE IS A COVERED PERGOLA FOR DINING WITH A GAS BBQ ON THE DECK FOR OUTDOOR DINING UNDER THE STARS. THERE ARE MANY GARDENS INTER-TWINING THE VILLA, INCLUDING A CACTUS GARDEN, ORCHARDS , BANANA TREES AND MANY SPECIES OF BIRD ACTIVITY ALL YEAR ROUND. LIVING ON A RIDGE AFFORDS US THE COOL BREEZES UNIQUE TO THE ATENAS AREA OUR HOUSE UNIQUE IN DESIGN AND LOCATION.
