Located 950' above the Pacific Ocean, this amazing, comfortable home has one of the best ocean views you will ever encounter. You'll have a commanding view of 5 offshore islands (Cano Island, Tres Hermanas and Isla Ballena), and the Osa Peninsula. Costa Ballena is world renowned for the ballenas (whales) that congregate offshore at certain times of year.
You'll find yourself spending all your time on the expansive 54' long ocean view deck, watching agouti, sleepy Howlers, chattering White Faced Monkeys swinging through the trees, coati and hundreds of species of birds such as hummingbirds, hawks, Toucans and Cusingas.
This “organic contemporary” home is incredibly comfortable and serene, surrounded by extensive tropical flower gardens and landscaping, with banana, citrus, mango, papaya and yucca trees. Broad winding steps lead you into the courtyard and front entry, filled with flowering plants that attract butterflies and hummingbirds of every species. As you enter the home, you can help but say out loud "WOW!" upon sight of the jaw-dropping ocean view, visible from every room in the home. Walk through the spacious great room and large open modern fully stocked kitchen, out to the ocean deck. The gathering place is on the ocean deck, crafted from rich-toned Brazilian cherry hardwood.
Wake up at sunrise, enjoy a great cup of Costa Rican coffee, with the only thing breaking the peace and quiet of the rain forest is the sound of the ocean waves, monkeys chattering and howling, and hundreds of varieties of exotic bird species singing in the morning air. You have no neighbors, except for the toucans, cusingas, macaws, parrots, and monkeys!
You won't need a/c as this home is perfectly designed for life in the tropics, and ideally suited to make the most of the on-shore ocean breezes in the daytime, and chilly mountain breezes at night. There's even a fireplace in the living room and master bedroom! Ceiling fans are located in every room. Lounge in the shaded deck hammock for two, or feast on dinner prepared using the chef's grade professional BBQ grill. A huge custom designed table made from a Pocorra hardwood tree slab seats up to 11 guests. There are two bedrooms - a master with king sized bed and hand painted mural, and a guest bedroom with queen sized bed and generous storage closet and plenty of drawer space. There is also a rustic, detached "casita" that sleeps two! The two full baths have soaring river rock walls and showers and contemporary trough sinks. There is a huge garden tub for soaking in by candlelight. Everything, including the fully equipped office with printer and internet, is located on a single story. Indigenous cedar plank vaulted ceilings soar to a height of 16 feet. This lovely home is filled with organic design elements; a dining light made from driftwood, fireplace mantels and shelving crafted from exotic hardwood logs, beach pebble walkways and floor to ceiling river rock accent walls.
It's simply Paradise here, and you won't want to leave!!
