Views of the Gulf of Nicoya (Pacific Ocean) are as common as commanding views of the entire Central Valley from this mountain top heaven.

-Mountaintop Escape on 30 acres of reforested property filled with a huge variety of flora and fauna

Owner info

About the owner: The quest for tranquility is one we all strive for. Having devoted 25 years running my own business and yet another 10 working for a Fortune 500 company, I opted for early retirement to continue my search. My previous life afforded me the opportunity to travel the world; China, Russia, the Baltic, Europe, Africa, South Africa, Australia, Greece and Portugal to name a few. Each time I visited a foreign country I tried to picture myself retiring in its midst with its specific climate, traditions and way of life. Portugal was on the verge of getting the nod until I discovered healthcare and taxes on foreigners were not conducive to my parameters I had established for myself. My first visit to Costa Rica was perpetrated by a business associate who indicated his parents had retired here several years prior. He arranged for my visit to see them and the rest is history. It is here that I find the tranquility that I’ve never lost nor ever will. It is here that I found a mountaintop that can now be shared for others to enjoy the views of the Pacific, and the Central Valley. It is here at Cima Estelar (Stellar Heights) that one can find a glimpse into the secrecy of nature; Toucans, parrots, sloths, iguana, giant woodpeckers and flora comparable to the Garden of Eden.

Why the Owner Chose Santiago de Puriscal, Costa Rica:
This breathtaking home is located on top of a mountain in Central Valley, Costa Rica. Experience rural Costa Rica landscape, amazing lightning shows, toucans, buzzards, cows! We have a few dogs as well. Mountain top views of the Ocean with amazing sunsets and perfect climate year round. *Pick fruit from our fruit trees around the house. Oranges, Limes, Sweet Lime, Starfruit, Avocados, Bananas..

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Watch the sunset over the Gulf of Nicoya on your balcony set 4,000 feet above sea level.
