Twelve years ago we visited tico friends who invited us to what the NY Times called the “untamed coast” of Costa Rica. We fell in love with this eclectic Caribbean coast, with its blend of tourists, expats, and long-term resident indigenous and Afro-Caribbean folks. The Caribbean Coast is different from the rest of Costa Rica. It is an area endowed with a bounty of unspoiled natural and cultural resources, and recognized for its extraordinary bio-diversity and beautiful beaches.
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.
