Let your spirit fly at Casa Aracari, located at a comfortable 500 meters above the dazzling coastline of Punta de Ballena. Nestled in the jungle on one acre of paradise, the house is truly a work of art designed by Eva Powers. Completed in December 2010, this ideal tropical vacation home offers a spacious open-air indoor/outdoor floor plan. Its unique architecture and original design capture Costa Rica in a way not seen anywhere else. Walk in and pinch yourself to make sure you are not dreaming!
We take pride in having incorporated materials sourced and manufactured in beautiful Costa Rica. The spiral teak stairway is the heart of the... home and wraps itself around a locally grown Guanacaste tree. The railings are artistically handcrafted with local Mangrove roots and Bejuco vine. The ceiling is lined with grass mats made by skilled Mayan Indians especially for Casa Aracari. The fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and beautiful custom wood counters is the social center of the home. Create your own gourmet dinner and serve it in the dining room while enjoying the sunset views. Tall folding glass doors in the living room open up to one side, creating a large indoor/outdoor living space with panoramic views of the pool, jungle covered canyons, the ocean, Punta de Ballena and the rich birdlife. The cool ocean breeze is felt throughout the home.
The infinity pool with its palapa covered table and four bar stools will be your ultimate hang out. Hammocks and lounge chairs are provided for your comfort in both sun and shade throughout the gardens.
The surrounding jungle promises an abundance of tropical sights and sounds that will delight you daily. Be sure to have your camera ready! Howler Monkeys, Toucans, Parrots and Dart frogs are daily visitors.
Listen to the waves breaking along the coastline and the bird song of the Toucans, with a chilled drink in hand and cooling of in the infinity pool. It is the rhythm of your daily life at Casa Aracari. Grill up some meals on the BBQ, and cozy up around the fire pit while watching the magical fireflies buzz the toads on the lawn.
Since the house is in the tropical rain forest, rain will fall heavy at times. It is the perfect time to walk upstairs to the spacious loft where you will find plenty to do. Pick up a book or round up your traveling company and play board games. Choose a DVD and enjoy a movie. Listen to your favorite music on the I-home station (using your own I-Pod) or catch up with the outside world with the house Wi-Fi (using your own laptop).
Relax on the balcony and watch in awe as the sunrise and sunset transform the sky. Have your camera ready as this is also the place for bird watching. Or enjoy the views from your pillow in the well-furnished and romantic master suite. A spacious and private bathroom with custom wood counters, stone tile and walk-in shower is there for your every need. A second bedroom with attached full bath, beautiful teak floors, vaulted ceilings, mangrove railings, large windows and glass doors are part of the amazing architecture upstairs. Ceiling fans and open screened ventilation allow the breeze to cool the house to comfortable temperatures.
The private casita offers a charming bedroom for two with its own outdoor patio, jungle views, kitchenette, dining table, queen size bed and full bathroom. Aracaris, Parrots, Toucans and Monkeys can easily be enjoyed from the covered porch.
The road to Casa Aracari (4x4 vehicle is required) will take you past waterfalls, tree ferns, beautiful jungle, tropical flowers and ocean views that will take your breath away.
