Property description

Se habla Espanol We speak English

Relaxed Comfort A tropical paradise in the Caribbean. A retreat designed for two families to vacation together. This home was built in 1965 and designed for the tropics. Wide roof overhangs provide shade and screens with wooden bars allow the ocean breezes to pass through the house, naturally keeping it comfortable. We do not have air conditioning. There aren't any glass windows either. The previous owner planted or kept as many trees as possible. Today there are 33 palm trees, plus others, which keep the grounds and house shaded.

100' of private beach frontage. At least 3 miles of beach to walk.

Designed for two families. Two master bedrooms each with master bathroom. Both are ocean front and each as a Queen bed. Two additional bedrooms with twin beds and bunk beds. One is ocean front. Full bathroom is off hall. Additional bathroom is for the maid, cook and cuidandero.
Daily maid service is provided. A cook is provided, but you are to supply the food. A cuidandero is on site and responsible for exterior maintenance and repairs. He also takes care of the two adjacent houses.
Normal temperature is 80 - 83 degrees but will range from 74 - 90 degrees. Water temperature is 75 - 83 degrees. They get 36' - 48' of rain annually. From December - March, less than 2' and less the 5' the other months. Usually, it comes as an afternoon downpour. The Golfo de Morrosquillo has very calm waves, like a lake. It has a sandy bottom and you can walk out for at least 100'.
Besides the absolutely beautiful ocean and beach, there are day trips and activities. Scuba, snorkeling, water skiing, Jet Ski, kayak, stand up paddle boats, Eco tours through the manglares (Mangrove forest), Caving and rapelling, Mud bath in the the mud volcano. Bring binoculars to watch the birds.
Tolu is off the gringo trail. I think that makes it nicer. You can get everything you need in town, and the experience is more authentic. The future of this region is tourism. The town of 30000 was founded in 1535. There has never been a hurricane here.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: In 1980 I was a Rotary Exchange Student in Bogota Colombia. 32 years later while surfing the internet I met my wife there. She lived two blocks from my old high school. We reside in Pittsburgh, but return to visit Colombia whenever possible.

Why the Owner Chose Tolú, Santiago de Tolú, Sucre, Colombia:
The perfect home on the perfect beach. Perfect design for the tropics. The sea water is warm and the waves gentle. We can walk 100' or more out into the sea. In the early morning the sea is smooth as glass. I'm looking forward to kayaking and stand up paddling and to going out with the local fishermen who fish daily.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is relaxing and we get to escape the winters of Pittsburgh every February and March. I'm not used to having 3 people take care of things, but in Colombia we have a maid, a cook and a gardener. The minimum wage in Colombia is $300/month. Please tip them.
