About the Property
Large Deck, 2 Bedrooms--full size 4-poster netted beds, etc. 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
After bringing university students down for a course in sustainability we bought a piece of this paradise in a Wildlife Refuge and built our house 7 years ago. We enjoy excellent international restaurants, and a culture that is friendly and laid back.
We built the house that would be perfect for us and after 3 years decided to rent it when we are not in Costa Rica. The house has a lovely large master bedroom, high ceiling, large screened windows, two ceiling fans--a lovely place to sit and read/work and sleep. The deck, where we spend most of our time is open to the ocean--it breezes, sounds, etc. but also it is an oasis/opening in the jungle that looks out over the ocean.
We now relish this special place, the privacy, where we can walk through our own rainforest jungle, take our path to the sandy beach and walk for miles along this almost deserted, palm-tree-lined shore of the Caribbean, observe the wildlife (sloths, howler monkeys, toucans, orapendulas, and more) from our large deck, and relax in the hammock feeling the cool ocean breezes and listening to the pounding of the surf. The house has a master bedroom, a second/smaller bedroom, shower, toilet, kitchen, and a large covered deck, all on the upper level, with great views of surrounding canopy. There is high-speed internet, WiFi and ceiling fans in each room. Need something just ask Henry, our care taker in the lower level unit.
Keywords: Upper-level private five-room suite, with private path to beach and path through private rainforest, WiFi, walk to village and restaurants by beach or road. In Wildlife Refuge, with outstanding bio-diversity and excellent beaches.
We can help make your travel from SJO airport to our house easy, pleasant, and quite inexpensive.

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: We are retired professors with a passion for nature and local ethnic cultures. We enjoy physical activity such as hiking and biking. We built the house as a special place for us to be in the jungle next to the ocean and be connected to the local community. This area, in particular Manzanillo, is a friendly place where interesting conversations take place at the local cafes and hangouts. It’s a welcoming place where anyone can join the daily community volleyball and/or soccer game on the beach.
Why the Owner Chose Limón Province, Costa Rica:
The magnificent, unspoiled, wildlife refuge. The Afro-Caribbean culture. The international character of the population, many of whom have come here to live and start small businesses. The wonderful climate (daytime highs in the low 80’s and nighttime lows in the low 70’s). The miles of sandy beaches and clear turquoise waters. Our place is unique. The openness to the ocean--second level--(viewing jungle from a 20 ft. height); the simple, spacious design, )large rooms, high ceilings on 2 1/2 acres).
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walking to restaurants on the beach and biking to more distant restaurants on the road. English is widely spoken. Variety of services, e.g., home delivery of organic produce and pizza. Car rental and public transportation.
