This is the perfect location for an exotic honeymoon, a bird watching tour, a yoga retreat or a playful base for an unforgettable family vacation. Leave the real world behind and let your inner child emerge. The home is in Cabo Matapalo, on the Osa Peninsula in Costa Rica. With continuous rainforest connecting to the famous Corcovado National Park, the wildlife viewing is unrivalled. Monkeys and macaws are daily visitors. The home is open plan with only walls where necessary to provide privacy. The main platform comprises the kitchen, dining area, relaxing areas and two en-suite bedrooms. The upper level comprises the master suite and en-suite shower room. In the garden there are two connected dipping pools and up behind the house in the primary forest there is a private yoga deck with a view over to the ocean. Choose your favourite corner and catch up with a good book, interrupted only by passing monkeys, macaws and butterflies.
The kitchen is designed with cooks in mind but space for helpers too! The kitchenware is of good quality and is regularly updated. The custom storage rack reduces the chore of washing up, just place items in their rack and they will dry for next time, minimum hassle. The gas stove has 6 large burners and a large oven. There are 3 sinks, 2 together and 1 on the island bar where smoothie or cocktail preparation is a breeze with a blender all set to go. The upper master has a king bed and large shower room and a private toilet. The junior suite on the main floor has a private deck, king bed and shower room and private toilet. The family suite has screened windows with a shower room and private toilet. This can be set up as a third king bedroom or a king with 2 additional beds, or can be a bunk room with beds for 6. All the beds have cotton sheets and high quality mosquito nets. Fall asleep to the sound of the surf knowing you are in the most comfortable beds in the area!
At Casa Vida Verde it is hard to know where the interior ends and the exterior begins! The viewing deck is the perfect spot to watch the jungle wake up each morning and birds and butterflies starting their day in the golden dawn light. Steps take you down through the grounds which gently transition from the forest to garden and lead to the pool area. The organic design of the house is evident here too with a fun, funky combination of two dipping pools connected by a channel and a small waterfall surrounded by lush tropical foliage and flowers. Relax here in the shade or sun, or this private setting is also a serene setting for yoga. Poolside, you will find a bistro table and chairs, a BBQ and an outdoor shower. Much of our property is actually primary forest behind the house. Explore this area using the well-tended trail of steps and spend some time up at the large platform with a view to the ocean. This is the perfect spot for yoga, massage or bird and wildlife watching.TripAdvisor property ID 2309652...Read more
