Property description

Located along one of the stunning ridgelines soaring over Costa Rica’s southern Pacific coastline, 180 del Mar delivers commanding 180° ocean views stretching thirty miles on a clear day. The ocean provides only one stunning feature of the property. The pristine jungle ridge of Escaleras offers our guests a unique backdrop of lush tropical vegetation and close encounters with the wildlife it supports. The sound of monkeys makes for an interesting wakeup call, and there is never a shortage of tropical birds brandishing dramatic colors. Guests can anticipate a distinctive and spectacular sunset every evening no matter what time of year they chose to visit, and when the sun dips down below the horizon a new stage of stars is set.

Your stay at 180 del Mar will be one of the most memorable of a lifetime. The house was designed, built and finished all by the owner, whose unique vision resulted in three octagonal towers that provide the feeling of a never ending perspective.

Two towers house the bedrooms, purposely detached from the main living space to instill a feeling of privacy even when travelling with close family. Each spacious suite offers a distinct and impressive view, with privet terrace, bathrooms feature relaxing hot water showers, double sink vanities, and ample closet space. Of the four rooms, two contain king sized mattresses, while the others come equipped with queen sized beds, but upon request could be outfitted with additional mattresses to accommodate different sleeping situations (i.e. children).

The main tower of the house will provide everything for your home away from home. The enormity of the living room is only amplified when the accordion doors open expanding the room to the outside veranda and the ever present jungle breezes. Comfortable furnishings and handcrafted wood work give a warm and relaxing feeling as you enjoy the scenery. The kitchen was outfitted by a professional chef, so if you fancy yourself a galloping gourmet or just want to surprise everyone with breakfast, you will find everything you need; large two door refrigerator, professional gas range, dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, blender, coffee maker, full set of dinner ware for up to 15 including crystal stem ware, as well as its plastic equivalent. The dinning space features a beautiful handcrafted table that seats eight comfortably. Facing the ocean, read a book, take a nap, sip a cocktail from the wraparound porch, or take an invigorating dip in the infinity edge Jacuzzi. A fully equipped laundry room and powder room round out the features of the home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: My name is Eduardo Avancini, together with my mom, Noemi, we purchased property in Dominical in 2002 and I moved from Southampton, New York to break ground here in the hills of Escaleras. Warm water and good waves may have enticed me initially, but after 13 years this is my home. My family has grown from my daughter who came with me from New York, to include my wife and two sons who were born here. My mom recently retired and joined us in April. Being a carpenter, I designed and finished the house along with my crew.

Why the Owner Chose Las Olas (Dominical, Costa Rica):
The southern Pacific zone is the most magical in the entire country of Costa Rica. Lush tropical jungle kisses the sea, with dramatic rock points and expansive stretches of pristine beach. Fantastic surf, incredible snorkeling and diving, impressive fishing make this area a water lovers paradise. The area around 180 del Mar remains largely unspoiled by large developments and resorts, therefore wildlife abounds. Monkeys, sloths, birds, reptiles, even elusive cats such as jaguars can be seen in the hills of Escaleras.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
In the morning, peer over your outstretched feet to view the magnificent Pacific Ocean as the sun makes its way over the ridge illuminating the Marina below. Step out on your privet porch and be greeted by the gentle morning jungle breeze and perhaps a humming bird or two. Enjoy your Costa Rican coffee on the veranda as you try to decide what your agenda is for the day, either choosing one of the various activities or tours or simply staying put with a good book, inspiration is in the view! Wind down the day in the reverse. Enjoy a cool beverage in the Jacuzzi breathing as the sun makes its final descent and dips into the sea. Watch as the sky unfolds with stars or the moon makes her appearance. Sleep with dreams of another day just like this one for tomorrow.
