House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Southern Costa Rica is a special place and San Vito is unique. The journey from San Jose is well worth it. Our house sits on 7 acres and has an unobstructed view of Volcan Baru in Panama. This is bird watching territory. Our house is tiled throughout and fully equipped for the visitor. We have a full time caretaker and an English speaking property manager to assist you in anything you may need. There is a grammar school nearby if you would like to observe or donate some school supplies. A short walk will take you to the famous Wilson Botanical Gardens.

The sun rises are so incredible that you will want to get up, grab your coffee (grown locally) and sit on the veranda each morning. A trip to Panama is a mere 30 minute drive.

If it is chilly at night, start a fire and enjoy the Spanish tiled fireplaces. Need TV, we have satellite SkyTV with many music channels as well.

Drive here, take a bus directly from San Jose into the center of San Vito or fly to Golfito or Coto 47 and cab it up to San Vito. Car rentals are available in Golfito.

                                                        We have done a fair share of traveling and I can honestly say this was beyond compare in every aspect-gorgeous, spotless home, heavenly vistas, and supportive and helpful host, caretaker and property manager!

                                                        House in the clouds, paradise!

                                                        Jodi M.

                                                        This home and the views are so incredible!

                                                        And the people in San Vito are the nicest!

                                                        I can't wait to visit again!

                                                        Special Place On Earth


                                                        This is the second time I have stayed at this residence. It has the most incredible sunrises imaginable. The vistas to the mountains are second to none. The grounds are maintained like a botanical garden.

                                                        The climate is perfect. The home is constructed of the finest materials and the exterior deck space is ample.

                                                        I have made friends with the neighbors and they bring a constant supply of fresh milk, fruit and eggs from their fincas to share.
