Our home is situated on 12+ acres of stunning view property in one of the most beautiful valleys in the entire country.
Ask the neighbors: the energy around here is infectious!
Upon entering the private gate, you'll probably notice the massive retaining wall to your right, which is known to many in the area as the "Great Wall". It eventually opens up to show the rest of our land, most of which sits above the driveway and extends to the top of the small mountain behind the house.
Ample parking is provided under a covered structure, which also includes a secured smaller area in case you've arrived via motorcycle or moped and would like to lock it inside.
As you approach the front door, you'll be welcomed by the lush, green lawn and vibrant native flora. My mother has planted various fruit trees around the house, which, of course, will provide fresh offerings for your enjoyment during your stay. The local mangos are my personal favorite.
The house itself includes a large, open common area with a dining table and living room. We really enjoy the high ceilings and open airflow, which is helped by the several sets of double doors that together can create a very outdoorsy feel, even while inside.
The furniture is all quite new and tailored to be in Costa Rican style with a modern, comfortable twist. The flat screen TV has a DVD player for evening movie nights, and there is WiFi access throughout the house.
The kitchen is more than suitable if you'd like to cook during your stay, and the fridge is a newer addition. The electric range, while entirely usable, is something that we will probably be replacing soon, as we would prefer a larger, gas version. Cookware, a blender, a microwave, a coffee maker, and utensils will be ready for your use.
Each of the bedrooms has a queen sized bed and vast floor space. Really though; this house is very, very open! You'll notice as soon as you step in.
The bathroom is accessible via each bedroom on either side, and the shower, which is probably as large as most bathrooms in the country, is a walk-in type with tile all around. Washer and dryer are in the back also, and certainly available for your use.
The bus stops right outside of the driveway, which can take you all the way to the beaches (roughly 2 -3 hours), including Manuel Antonio and Jaco, which is the closest. Or, if you're headed back to the city, Puriscal is just 15 mins away and San Jose approximately an hour.
A short walk (2 min drive) down the hill takes you to a natural spring pool and cute local restaurant. For a fraction of the cost of the same experience in the US, you can enjoy a relaxing day by the pool and a great meal prepared just for you.
We have a great network of friends in the area, and upon booking, we'd be happy to connect you with them. Some examples include: yoga instructors (who may be able to offer private classes), coffee growers, adventure tour operators, eco-resort managers, and even the owner of one of the best cigar plantations/factories in the country.. all just a few minutes away :)
We prefer longer stays, as it is easier to coordinate, and may be able to offer discounts and/or shorter stays depending on the schedule. There is also a chance that we can arrange an airport pickup/dropoff, but it depends on the time of year and our availability.
We truly look forward to making your trip to this wonderful place as enjoyable as possible, so if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask!

Additional Location Information
Perhaps one of the best views in the country... You can see all the way down to Manuel Antonio national park, and plenty of hills along the way. Our home is located between Santa Marta and La Legua in the countryside outside of the small town of Puriscal.
There is a pool a mile or so down the road from us and several restaurants within a 10 min drive.
