Overview

About the property

You need more than a getaway. You need a place to refresh your soul. A place conducive not only to rest and relaxation but an environment that tempts your sense of adventure and enables you to participate in all that is good and exciting about Costa Rica. Toucan's Perch is nestled 4000 feet above sea level with views of the Pacific and the entire Central Valley. For a unique experience, get up at 5:30 a.m. and watch your own volcano (Volcan Turrialba) smoldering into the skyline as the sunrise pierces through onto your perch above the universe. Toucans are your only visitors as they call to one another while you enjoy the calm of a hammock and possibly a cup of the world’s finest coffee to keep you company. The temperate climate at this elevation never exceeds 85 F and only stoops to 65 F in the middle of the night. All the while you enjoy clean air and fresh water from the neighboring mountain spring; pure and simple. Just an hour West and you’re on the beach

. This breathtaking home is located on top of a mountain in Central Valley, Costa Rica. Experience rural Costa Rica landscape, amazing lightning shows, toucans, buzzards, cows! We have a few dogs as well. Mountain top views of the Ocean with amazing sunsets and perfect climate year round.

*Pick fruit from our fruit trees around the house. Oranges, Limes, Sweet Lime, Starfruit, Avocados, Bananas..

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our recent two week stay at The Outpost exceeded all of our expectations. We came to Costa Rica to unwind while exploring a new country for us. Our accommodations were impeccably clean and the views are truly incomparable. Our evening ritual of watching the sun sink into the Pacific Ocean is just one of the many highlights of our visit. We came to eliminate the stress of our jobs and were rewarded with quiet and an occasional visit by Thor and Cyclops the two great dogs on the property that we wanted to bring home with us. Our hosts, Alan and Skeeter, provided us with easy and affordable transportation and kept us away from the hesitancy associated with driving in a foreign country. We took the bus to a number of locations as well as it passes right in front of the property. We left 20 degree weather to enjoy the perfect climate of 75 degree Fahrenheit temps. Oh to be back in flip flops and shorts! Thank you again for a memorable stay. We will return.

Incredible Property!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay at Alan's villa. The views are spectacular from sunrise to sunset.

The grounds are expertly maintained featuring beautiful landscaping with a wide variety of plants, flowers and trees.

The villa is well equipped with all the essentials and the wifi reception was very good.

Overall, a great place to relax and rewind.

Highly Recommended!!

Muchos Gracias for Pura Vida!

  • 5 of 5

Erik and I could not have picked a better home away from home in the county of Puriscal! Alan, Yame & Zeke, Demo & Ganesha were wonderful hosts with the most, and we are so happy to have made new friends in a beautiful country. We hope to share just as much of a wonderful experience in our own cottage in Algonquin!

Thank you for opening your home to us, we will never forget the great memories.

Solo Yogourt!!! =D

Love,

Erik & Grace Hughes

Best Vacation ever.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and i arrived in CR for our honeymoon in SJO at 5:30a.m. Skeeter met us at the airport and took care of us every step of the way. We immediately felt cared for and safe with his guidance. I was so glad he was driving because traffic and the drivers are nuts and their are no signs once you leave the city.

He took us to a few sites and then we had a fantastic Tico breakfast. The food in CR is amazing. don't listen to anyone who says otherwise. Upon arriving at the house, we were amazed at how beautiful the property and the house was. Breathtaking views and everything was extremely clean. The gardener/maintenance man Abel, left us freshly picked flowers when he heard it was our honeymoon. He also left us some fresh fruit picked on the property.

We had complete privacy and the weather was perfect. 75 in the day and 65 at night. cloudy and stormy some of the time and a little sunny other times. Sunrises and sunsets that never get old and far surpass any tv show or movie that could be on.

Whenever we need or wanted to go somewhere, Skeeter took us. Zip lining, the beach, the store, even Wal-mart for some comfort foods.

If we ever return to CR (and i'm sure we will) will wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else.

Skeeter, thank you for making our Honeymoon the best it could possibly be.

Beautiful Views and Relaxation !!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent two months at this location and could have stayed two more . We found the accommodations to be just as pictured on web sight . Skeeter and his son Alan were great hosts and very willing to help in anyway they could . The landscaping was beautiful . We watched and listened to the birds morning and night . Breath taking sunsets . We fell in love with Demo the dog . We will return in the near future .
