Beautiful home on the beach. This was the first house built in this community so it sets next to the 24 hour guard house and entry. Just out the door, across the private lawn with cool pool, lies the black sand beach. Depending on high or low tide, the waters edge is only steps away. Great snorkeling is just in your backyard. An early morning stroll on the intimate beach, coffee in hand, is a wonderful way to start ones day. This home is perfect for the seasoned traveler who is comfortable providing for themselves while traveling. And is an ideal location for a home base between excursions and exploring the country. It is also perfect for just getting away and relaxing in a quiet bay and beach community.
This rental property is a self sufficient open air home. All bedrooms have air-conditioning. The main living area and the Lanai have 3 ceiling fans each for pleasant air circulation. Also the bedrooms are equipped with ceiling fans. The kitchen is fully equipped with electric range, oven, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker and toaster. Internet service, television, CD and DVD players are available as well as clothes washer and dryer.

Our private cool pool, the size of a small hot tub, is located in the backyard, perfect for an afternoon cooling. Also, there are two community pools for your use. One is located across the street and the other one is a short walk away up the street. The house is located next door to the office as you enter the community. The office can answer any questions one may have while visiting here and also provides 24 hour security.

Year Purchased: 1994
About: Jerry & Kathy are retired and live in Palmer Lake, Colorado. They bought the Costa Rica beach house to enjoy summers, since Kathy had them off when she was working as a fourth grade school teacher. Their travels to the home over the past 20 years has allowed them to make many personal changes to the house, as Jerry enjoys utilizing his brick mason skills. They have many friends that have retired in the Ocotal area, so their activities include dinning out, card games, sunset happy hour, and other fun social events. Jerry enjoys golf and can be found every morning on the beach hitting golf balls. Kathy takes her morning beach walk, which is about 1/3 mile from end to end.
Why Guanacaste, Costa Rica:
My good friends, Kathy and Jerry Merrick, wanted to travel and live in Costa Rica so this home was purchased and built in 1994. It has been their vacation home on the beach for their family and friends to enjoy ever since. Now they would like to open their home to travelers to enjoy the beauty and benefits of Costa Rica. This home is one of 6 that were first built in this beach community and it resides right on the beach. It is only a matter of walking out the door, through the private yard and onto the black sand beach.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Benefits are too numerous to mention them all. But a few are; The quiet and intimate beach. The bird viewing and wildlife that pass through the area. The Lanai, anytime of day. Hiking around the small island when the tide is low. Snorkeling is wonderful just behind the house. Coco Beach is a fun beach community to enjoy shopping and dining and the entertainment. It is a wonderful place to relax after a day of sight seeing or after a short travel to the jungle.
