Welcome to Aracari....Located at a cool comfortable 400 meters above the dazzling coastline with Panoramic Ocean views including the Whale's Tail. The home is located in the perfect spot where the constant gentle ocean breezes keep it cool and nestled in the jungle on a private acre of Paradise. The surrounding jungle promises an abundance of tropical sights and sounds that will delight you by day and night.... You will experience the best of Nature!
Monkeys, Toucans, Parrots, Coatimundi, and other Animals can be seen daily.... Be sure to have your camera ready! Our home is located on a very private acre in the middle of the beautiful Rainforest region of Costa Rica. Its unique architecture and original design by Eva Powers offers a spacious open-air indoor/outdoor floor plan. Walk in and pinch yourself to make sure you are not dreaming!!!
Relax under the covered deck in a hammock or lounge chair, go for a swim in the beautiful infinity pool, or enjoy an ice cold drink made from the delicious fruits of the area while sitting on one of the four bar stools at the table shaded by the palapya covered umbrella in the pool. This the rhythm of your daily life at Casa Aracari.
The fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and beautiful custom wood counters is the social center of the home. For an extra special treat, create your own gourmet dinner and serve it in the dining room while enjoying the sunset views over the ocean. Sit in the living room, open the tall folding glass doors, and create a large indoor/outdoor living space with panoramic views of the pool, surrounding jungle covered mountains, ocean, Bahia Ballena, and Bird life.
So many beautiful scenes will delight you as you sit on the upstairs balcony and watch in awe as the sunrise and sunset transform the sky! Watch from the balcony for the many varieties of wildlife in the area.
We take pleasure in sharing the beauty of Costa Rica by using materials manufactured locally and incorporated in the design throughout the house. Construction was done by local craftsmen/artists Wilberth Acuna and Dagoberto Mora. The spiral teak staircase at the heart of the home, wraps itself around a locally grown Guanacaste tree. The railings are artistically handcrafted with local Mangrove roots and Bejuco vine. The ceiling is lined with grass mats made by skilled Mayan Indians especially for Casa Aracari.
The casita on the property is not available for rent as it is storage for the owner's items. Guests who rent our home will always have the use of our entire property to themselves for total peace and tranquility.
