Beautiful new furnished 3 bedroom home with great room, sitting area, full kitchen with all the dishes, pots and pans you will need. The master bedroom has a separate full bathroom. The two upstairs bedrooms share a full bathroom and each has a covered patio out sliding doors. There is also a guest bathroom on the first level. 2 Queen beds and a double are comfortable. All towels and linens provided and care-takers wash the linens after departure.

A covered patio off of the dining area is perfect for a barbeque dinner or just to sit and look at the beautiful view, sipping wine and watching the birds. The house is on a 2000 square meter property (1/2 acre) just down from the continental divide. Hear howler monkeys in the forests nearby. The temperature here in the mountains is a comfortable temperate climate year round.

The house is 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) from Santa Elena, which has grocery stores, restaurants and various shops and transportation access to all adventures and reserves.

Monteverde is a key destination because of the several cloud forest reserves where tourists can hike or take guided tours. There are numerous other attractions, including night hikes, birding tours, exciting zip lines through the forest canopy, canopy bridge hikes, coffee plantation tours, waterfalls, and animal reserves. Monteverde is one of the only places in the world to see the Resplendent Quetzel, perhaps the most beautiful bird in the world. There are numerous other species of birds to see, including a number of types of Tucans. Wild life abounds.

Caretakers can provide breakfast for $9/person; typical Costa Rica dinners for $12 per person.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: With our 5 children grown, we wanted a place in Costa Rica. Of all of the places that we have traveled, none have appealed to us as much as Costa Rica. When we come to Costa Rica, we sometimes stare at one another and declare, 'We just love it here.'

Why the Owner Chose Monteverde, Costa Rica:
We had traveled many places, but the beauty of this place and the warm friendly people drew us like a magnet. We went to spanish immersion school here and have developed our many 'Tico' friendhsips.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have caretakers who live in a casita on the property and who can direct you to the best attractions/restaurants/hikes in the area. Evelyn is a chef and can also make tipical Costa Rica breakfasts and dinners for you in the house. We have developed a number of friendships, some with other foreigners but mostly with Ticos. It is an easy country to travel in. Dollars are accepted everywhere and in most places English is spoken. The forest across from our property is known for the variety of birds.
