Property description

Located inside the tranquil Bahia Ballena (Bay of the Whales), this exclusive and exquisitely designed home is one of a kind in this region. Designed to take advantage of the year round ocean breezes this open air home has all of the amenities and upscale custom finishing's one could hope for in a vacation or full time residence. The synthetic palm roof adds to the home's tropical charm. The open floor plan lends to the kitchen, dining room and sitting area flowing out to an over sized outdoor covered living/terrace area, featuring an incredible view of the tropical gardens, the beach and the bay. The outdoor living area is the highlight of the home, spacious, and elegant, and providing refreshing breezes and magnificent views with a totally private courtyard/pool area for your enjoyment. This is a perfect honeymoon destination!

The home is situated on one of the few safe swimming beaches in this area and surfing is available at nearby Mal Pais/Santa Theresa. There are several wonderful restaurants, a grocery store and church within walking distance to the home. Walking on the beach and in the general area is safe. The home is equipped with an alarm for your piece of mind.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: My husband and I have been married for 31 years and are both retired (mobile electronics and RN respectively). We live 3 months in our home in Costa Rica and 9 month in Massachusetts, USA. We have three children and seven grandchildren. We enjoy the local culture and tranquility of Playa Tambor and love to watch the wildlife which includes many species of birds such as Scarlet Macaws and Tucans, as well as, iguanas, howler monkeys, and kuwati mundis. We get together with our other "beach friends" often enjoying bonfires on the beach.

Why Tambor Beach, Costa Rica:
We decided to build our home in Tambor because of the exquisite beauty and tranquility of the area. We were looking for a non-touristy setting where we could enjoy the local culture of the Costa Rican people while at the same time having the advantages of nearby touristy areas in terms of available activities.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Peaceful atmosphere; total privacy afforded by the property; friendships with native Costa Rican families and other friends who live part time in the area; awesome fishing; 5 mile walking beach; sandy beach immediately in front of the property with shade trees; 10 meter x 10 meter private swimming pool; boating, horseback riding and quadricycle rentals delivered to the property; local shopping, dining and clubs all in walking distance.
