Property description

FROM OUR CASA...
New for 2016-2017 Season: Rent for as few as 14 days! We have noticed an increase in the number of vacationers looking for 2 - 3 week rental opportunities and we are happy to accept these requests. Please feel free to contact us for more information.

Hear the ocean roar! See the sun rise over the mountains and set over the Pacific sur! Enjoy the constant and varied bird chatter from the calls of Macaws flying overhead on their way to the beach to green parrots and Gray-headed Chachalacas partying in the trees. Wake up to the roar of a Howler monkey signaling the beginning of a new day.

Our property is a throughway sitting on the front mountain range here in the tropical Pacific lowlands. Enjoy and experience monkeys, seldom seen birds, fruit trees, coconuts and the evening fragrance of our Ylang Ylang tree. Every day a new discovery awaits you.

With windows on all sides, for unparalleled viewing, the casa remains private, nestled into the forest, but open to the sea. Our property is ideally located to get to regional attractions, with good roads destination roads. The casa is designed to fit into the natural flow of life in the jungle: see, listen and 'let yourself go with the flow.'

Casa de Teca, is 100% teak and has truly world class views. The cozy interior is warm and welcoming. The open plan dining and living area allows for comfortable family gatherings. The fully covered wrap around teak deck adds an inviting outdoor living space.

While not air-conditioned the house is fully ventilated, allowing both the mountain and ocean trade winds to provide cooling breezes throughout the home. The natural teak finishes create a true retreat setting ideal for contemplation, meditation and relaxation. This relaxed environment carries to the outside where one will find an observation lawn for yoga, tai chi and aerobic exercising while enjoying the 180-degree hilltop views. A 3-meter by 8-meter pool provides ample room for water activities including swimming, pool lounging and water walking.

Best of all there is the tropical setting and wildlife – monkeys, birds, flowers, jungle and mountains – that all quickly become part of your experience. On top of the fabulous haven provided at Casa de Teca, it is ideally located to experience many of the outdoor adventures that is Costa Rica. Your imagination is all that’s missing to make this retreat an unforgettable experience. WELCOME!
