Enjoy paradise and its wildlife up close in an untouched part of Costa Rica four hours south of San Jose, a tranquil mountain setting. Secluded acreage with home, creek, and views - within walking distance to a friendly village and public transport. Situated in the cloud forest of the beautiful south Pacific coastal range - stunning views of Mt. Chirrippo, Talamanca Mountains and nearby waterfalls, rivers, scenic roads. Beaches, organic markets, and other city amenities an hour or less away.
Two large patios with beautiful views for dining, relaxing, and enjoying the colorful birds that will delight you all day long. Fully equipped kitchen has everything you need. Linens/bedding supplied. Full bathroom has hot water in the shower. Bed for two in the bedroom and couch opens to sleep two more. Take a nap in the hammock or pick fresh fruit from our 20+ fruit trees! Ceiling fan, jalousie windows. Our Tico-style stucco home is cozy and comfortable, temperatures 80+ degrees F in day and 60+ at night with soft breezes and the music of the mountain.
The entire casa is yours, as are the four acres. Mostly pasture planted over with trees, our shaded and sunny fields on gentle slopes are fun to explore - as is the dense jungle growth of vines and ancient trees along our creek. Our finca is secluded; no close neighbors other than toucans in nearby trees, colorful songbirds and parrots, and the occasional cow heard in the distance. Drive your vehicle down the winding driveway to park close to the house for convenience.
We are available at all times by phone and email and will provide guests with detailed information including access to the house, nearby fun activities, shopping, village amenities, bus service, and much more. Our house manager Damaris lives in the village and is available 24/7, as is our caretaker Carlos, her brother-in-law. Both are cheerful and helpful, fully living up to Costa Rica's reputation of friendliness. Damaris is available to cook a homemade, authentic Costa Rican dinner at a reasonable price, and also offers laundry services and house-cleaning for extended stays.
The 3 km road up the mountain to Aguas Buenas is paved in some places, and graveled in others. Leaving the village to travel one kilometre to La Musica de la Montana, you turn on a rustic, grassy, stony road that is remote and rugged. 4-wheel drive is recommended, especially for the short cut 40 minutes straight down to the beach and waterfalls. Not planning to rent a vehicle? No problem, the bus to San Isidro departs from the village twice per day, returning again mid-day and early evening. The village store is fully stocked with groceries, sundries, and fresh vegetables, dairy, and local meat and eggs.
