Property description

This completely furnished house has a beautiful view of the mountains of Escazu and overlooks the San Jose valley. There are porches on three sides where you can sit and enjoy the well-kept gardens filled with tropical plants, butterflies, and birds. Newly renovated with updated bathrooms and kitchen. New second floor with study and TV room with stunning views of the mountains. Very peaceful, secure home 20 minutes from airport and just 15 minutes from downtown San Jose. Many restaurants and grocery stores are just down the hill. Hop on a bus outside the property and you will be there in 5 minutes or less. Taxis are also available.

The house has an electric gate so it is very secure. You can park your rental car inside the property with no worries. Wifi is also available.

Stay here while you enjoy the many beautiful natural resources that Costa Rica offers. Take day trips from here to see the volcanoes, go white-water rafting, walk in the cloud forest, visit coffee plantations, visit the ancient and beautiful colonial town of Orosi, among many other wonderful activities. The closest beach is only one-and-one-half hours away. If you are lucky you will see traditionally painted oxcarts still being used to haul wood or milk. Or walk up the street, past the little colonial church, and visit a "trapiche" (sugar mill) where sugar cane is still being processed into sugar in the traditional way. The house gets its name from the cane flower.

Escazu offers a variety of excellent restaurants, shopping malls, banks, and supermarkets. This is an excellent location to make your vacation the most enjoyable one yet!

Car: Recommended

The house is located down the hill a bit from the quaint town of San Antonio de Escazu with its beautiful church overlooking the valley and across from a park. Alongside the park are bakeries and restaurants, providing an authentic experience of Costa Rica, often not felt in the major tourist areas. There are still sugar mills that are oxen-operated so if you are lucky you will catch one at work. Hanging out in the little town of San Antonio you may also see people on horseback and an oxcart or two. And the backdrop of the gorgeous mountains is worth the walk up the hill from the house (10 minutes at most).

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2004

About: I grew up in Costa Rica and most of my family lives in the Escazu area. My husband and I are both professors in California and we enjoy the beauty and peacefulness of our house in Costa Rica to read, write, and visit with friends. We travel down to Costa Rica about 3 times a year. We like it to be comfortable and hospitable to all those who enter our house.

Why San José, Costa Rica:
The location was a principal reason that I bought this property. It is in Escazu which has so many amenities, but it is far enough up the hill to feel more country-like and walking distance to the colonial church of San Antonio. It is next door to the house of my brother and my sister-in-law can watch over the property and see that it remains in excellent condition.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The gardens are beautiful with a variety of tropical flowers, brilliant butterflies, and even some fruit trees: bananas, orange/lemon, and avocado. The views of the mountain and the cool weather make it a perfect place to relax.
