This lovely three-story hardwood house is surrounded by tropical beauty, in the midst of what could be called a nature park. Monkeys, coatimundis, agoutis and anteaters often scamper through the 2 acre grounds, while toucans, parrots and eagles glide by overhead. Amazing butterflies feed on the exotic flora. All this, yet only 300m from the beach!
The outstanding architectural design offers two stories of living space and an observation deck on the third level. The observation deck is the place to enjoy your morning coffee as you watch the tropical animals and birds in the surrounding tree canopy.
The house sleeps up to six adults quite comfortably, with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. There is an outside shower for rinsing off after the beach as well as an inside shower with hot water. Each floor has an open area to sit and enjoy the tropical trees and flowers. You'll feel the stress melt away as you listen to the peaceful sound of the stream that runs by the house.
The wonderful layout of windows and doors offer great views and all are screened to invite in the fresh ocean breeze. Water is provided by a spring-fed well: pure enough to bottle and sell! A storeroom (bodega) offers a place to keep things locked up.
