Property description

Experience eco-jungle living in style at Casa Arenosa. This private, ocean-front home was created with all the love of Matapalo. It is located on the secluded beach of Backwash (best swimming beach in the area) Bay on an acre and a half of lushly landscaped gardens.

The Osa Peninsula is paradise for nature lovers who thrive on adventure. It is as pristine and off the beaten-road as it gets! There are no big hotels, or discos on the beach. It’s raw, beautiful and brimming with life. National Geographic calls it the most bio-diverse place on the planet!

Wake up to the sounds of the howler monkeys, take a swim in the ocean, then stroll along a secluded beach and watch Scarlet McCaws soar overhead. Afterwards, take a dip in the refreshing plunge pool and relax in a hammock while watching four different kinds of endangered monkeys play in the bamboo gardens off the deck. At night, sleep in a comfy bed under a mosquito net canopy while being lulled to sleep by the rhythmic sound of the waves.

This is the life...Pura Vida.

Casa Arenosa is a fully functioning home off the grid. It is entirely powered by solar energy and has a rainwater catchment system as well as fresh spring water. Here, you can experience off the grid living in jungle luxury. Casa Arenosa is a two-story, open-air home, with a plunge pool and plenty of decks and areas to relax and lounge. It has with three bedrooms, two bathrooms with indoor/outdoor showers, a separate kitchen palapa and a dining room palapa all connected with an open thatch-roof breezeway.

Our wonderful caretakers, Mike and Cecily (who is a yoga instructor and massage therapist), are English speaking and live on site.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

Why the Owner Chose Puntarenas, Costa Rica:
My husband and I traveled the world looking for a place to grow roots. When we came to Matapalo, we found our paradise. It is the most beautiful and alive place we have ever been. The wildlife, jungle, beaches and ocean are pristine. Matapalo makes you feel alive! It's a place to connect with nature, each other and yourself. You can also choose to either relax and lounge, or have a fun filled action packed adventure. In the area, there is abundant bird watching, exotic animals, beautiful jungle, river walking, waterfall repelling, tree climbing zip lines, swimming with dolphins, yoga, massage, facials, and the close by Corcovado National Park. Also, the community of people who live in Matapalo are equally amazing. They are genuine, engaging and uplifting. We feel blessed to be a part of life there, and are happy to share our paradise with those who can also fully appreciate it!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our piece of paradise is especially unique because it lies where the rain forest meets the ocean. You can walk out one side of the house and take a dip in the ocean or stroll along the beach - or walk out the other side into the jungle!
