About the Property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Batrhooms, Sleeps 6

'Casa de las Mariposas' is a stunning villa overlooking the southern Pacific coast of Costa Rica near Ojochal. The home features luxury amenities inside and out! The home has approximately 180 sq. meters of indoor living area and 180 sq. meters of terrace. Fully air conditioned, private pool and hot tub. Private staff on grounds provide daily breakfast, towel service and mid week linen service.

The spacious and airy great room, dining room, and bedrooms have doors that completely open allowing pacific breezes to cool the home. The tropical decor was custom made with the finest craftsmanship.

The kitchen has the most modern appliances and cookware. Granite counters throughout with high counter and bar stools. The indoor dining table seats eight.

Outside, you can relax around the pool, swim or, soak in the spa. The gazebo features a BBQ grill, sink, beverage refrigerator and a table for four.

One side of the great room features the master bedroom suite with queen bed, large walk-in shower, dual sinks and walk-in closet. The guest side of the home has two roomy bedrooms each with a queen bed. The guest bedrooms share a common bathroom with shower.

We are very proud of your two caretakers, Tono and his wife Flora. They do an amazing job keeping the villa in perfect condition as well as providing a great breakfast each morning. They only speak Spanish but if you do not, you can communicate with Google Translate via the computer in the kitchen.

The house is very secluded. We have our own small banana and coffee plantation as well as cocoa, coconut, mango, lemon, tangerine, orange and papaya and many other trees. Most of the trees are labeled.

We have tried to make your travel as easy as possible by providing a pack-n-play and high chair for young children and beach toys for the older ones including, boogie boards, beach chairs etc.

Some of the finest restaurants in southern Costa Rica can be found a short drive from the home.

Outdoor activities abound within a short distance from the house including beaches, surfing, sea kayaking, mangrove and ocean kayaking, zip lining, hiking, birding, waterfalls, ATV tours, and canyoning.

The villa sits 8.1 Km off the main highway up a gravel road that requires four wheel drive much of the year. It can be a very rugged drive depending on the season and the condition of the road. It takes about 20-30 minutes. It is a beautiful drive and is well worth it for the views, mountain breezes, wildlife and seclusion.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We live in Indiana, USA and have three grown boys. We began building this home in April of 2011 and complete the construction in May of 2014.

Why the Owner Chose Puntarenas, Costa Rica:
The views of the pacific ocean are truly special. The home is very secluded and surrounded by tropical forest and wildlife including monkeys, parrots, toucans, anteaters and the occasional sloth. The eight kilometer drive from the coastal highway takes about 20 minutes and requires four wheel drive most times of the year. Due to the amazingly scenic drive down the mountain, it requires about 30 minutes to get to the nearest beaches and restaurants.
