About the Property

4 bedroom, 3 bathroom with breathtaking view of valleys, mountains and ocean

Take advantage of all that Costa Rica has to offer! Stay at Casa Peñasco, only minutes from Playa Grande, Tamarindo, Conchal, Brasilito, Playa Potrero, Flamingo, La Paz Community school and Huacas. Enjoy the convenience of the proximity to the area's best attractions combined with the tranquility of Costa Rica's natural landscape. As your mountain retreat, escape the busy tourist areas and experience true Costa Rican living. Pura Vida!

Casa Peñasco sits atop a mountain just northeast of Tamarindo, slightly east of Playa Grande and is an impressive structure of modern concrete and glass embedded into hard rock, much like homes in Malibu, Hollywood, and Laguna Beach California.

The top floor is the rooftop terrace, the main entrance to the house. It features an automatic gate and space to park your car. The terrace's wrap around balcony is great for relaxing in the morning to catch the sunrise or in the evening to see the sunset and the stars. Alternatively, it is a great space for parties and other festivities!

Casa Peñasco affords its guests a great view from all floors. From the terrace, descend into the first floor living room and the large granite kitchen. Down the hallway are the three guest bedrooms and their two full bathrooms with two adjacent private view decks. All rooms are surrounded by nature with a view of the ocean and surrounding valley. The next level hosts a full-floor master bedroom with a large shower, sitting area, and private deck. The master bedroom has direct access to the full-sized swimming pool with a large cantilevered deck.

Casa Peñasco sleeps 8, with 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Three bedrooms with Queen-sized beds can be found on the floor below the terrace. The master bedroom has a King-sized bed and is comprised of the entire floor beneath them. The spacious lounge includes a flat screen TV with a DVD player and movies for your enjoyment. AC throughout (7 split type units in all).

Additional amenities include: coffee maker, dishwasher, toasters, toaster oven, microwave, dvd player, large selection of dvds, washer & dryer, nearby bank and atm, nearby grocery, nearby medical services, local fiestas, close to town, nearby restaurants,near beaches.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are a family of five who fell in love with the natural beauty of Costa Rica's parks, wildlife, and beaches!

Why the Owner Chose Huacas, Costa Rica:
We specifically chose this property within the gated community of Acacia Del Norte for the blissful quiet and closeness to Costa Rican rainforest and wildlife. The location of Casa Penasco on a mountain cliff grants visitors an amazing view of the surrounding valley and ocean. Despite its seeming remoteness, Casa Penasco is just a short drive from many resort towns including Tamarindo, Flamingo, Conchal, and Brasilito! Even closer is the quiet town of Huacas which is steeped in true Costa Rican culture, where the locals are friendly and the food is amazing.
