About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-6)

'Casa Gavilan' [hawk house] is located in the tropical rainforests of the OSA Peninsula which is surrounded on one side by the pristine Golfo Dulce [sweet gulf] and on the other side by the glorious expansive Pacific Ocean. The house lies 150 yds. from the beach which has views of the Costa Rican and Panamanian coastlines. The house is only 3 miles from Cabo Matapalo which is known for excellent surfing, yet good surfing is as close as 1/2 mile away.

This area of Costa Rica remains one of the most unspoiled and biodiverse places, not just in this friendly country, but in the world. Home to Corcovado National Park and more, this ecosystem supports wildlife that includes four species of monkeys, flocks of scarlet macaws, toucans, sloths, iguanas, anteaters and countless birds. The nearby gulf is a seasonal route for whales, but dolphins and whale sharks are regularly seen here. Butterfly species and exotic insects are of interest to the curious. The gorgeous blue morpho graces the shaded areas often. The flora is as varied as the fauna with smells and taste never before experienced.

'Casa Gavilan' is a simple, comfortable, tropical home powered by the sun via solar panels. It has the option to be a 'bug free haven' with screens thru out for those who prefer such an environment.
A small 'ranchito' [thatch covered structure] is available for comfy shaded hammock relaxation and picnic fun directly on the beach.

Be sure to check out the many options for adventure, exploration and peaceful serenity in this unique, remote jungle paradise.
