The Property

Anchored in 2.2Has of botanical gardens with over 500 different tropical plant varieties, a swimming pool (50x13 ft/16x4m) with a comfortable deck, a child or round-bar swimming pool, a dining cottage with BBQ and a 2-story, 3-bedroom luxury house only steps away from diverse and beautiful beaches.

The 2-story house has recently been rebuilt, carefully respecting its spirit as the first ever house to be built in the area, now forming part of the municipal patrimony. It boasts extremely comfortable social areas as well as ample rooms.

On the top floor the large kitchen is fully equipped, the dining room seats 12 and an adjoining, relaxing living room is fully equipped with television and a top-of-the-range music stereo system. There is also a guest bathroom and a balcony with a view to the tropical garden beneath.

On the ground floor are two air-conditioned King-sized bedrooms with 5* sheets and towels, desks, closets, safety boxes, private bathrooms and small refrigerators in every room, as well as one air-conditioned, 4 single-bed, smaller room also with its private bathroom. All rooms are at garden level, and all have access to different areas of the garden.

The second floor is the favorite area for guests as its makes you feel as if you are floating above the garden! This means it is also a beautiful nature observatory: an ideal place from which to observe and enjoy all nature has to offer, from toucans and howler monkeys to sloths, colored butterflies and parakeets singing to the setting sun. The front of the property is the ideal place to sit with a glass of wine and watch the mesmerizing sea.....

You will also enjoy the totally new large swimming pool, or you can sunbathe on the deck while the kids or your friends splash in the round bar/kids' pool. You can also have a delicious barbecue in the outdoor cottage dining area next to the pool. Just a few steps in the opposite direction and you reach the beaches. 'Playa Chiquita' is literally on your doorstep, just 80 steps from the master bedroom - trust us, we've counted!

Our long-standing, friendly and professional staff will take care of you and your family or friends. Combined with the magic of the place, we are sure you will have an unforgettable vacation!

About the Neighborhood

The property is extremely well located, in the heart of Playa Chiquita, a quiet and very familiar neighborhood. Located right on the beautiful beaches of Playa Chiquita (50m) with a private access from the house, between Cocles and Punta Uva (1 km). At walking distance you will find a well-stocked mini-market, some nice restaurants and bars. In Puerto Viejo (3,5 miles/6 Kms away) you will find many more restaurants, ATMs, pharmacies, nice boutiques, bars, nightlife etc. The whole village has a very special charm to it, very influenced by a relaxed “Bob Marley” vibe that gives it a vibrant, special personality.
