Description from owner

Pura Vida!

This is the Costa Rican expression for everything that is good. It translates as pure life and is used as a greeting and a salutation. It is always spoken with a smile. Costa Rica is rated as one of the happiest places on earth. You can discover why.

Does secluded beaches where the jungle meets the sand, monkeys and toucans greet you each morning, and swimming under warm waterfalls strike your fancy?

Our rental home is situated in an old growth jungle minutes from the beach on the Pacific coast at Marino Bellena National Park, the only national marine park in Costa Rica. Bellena translates to whale. Humpbacks from the southern and northern hemisphere travel thousands of miles to have their babies in the park. Excellent whale watching, snorkeling and diving! We are halfway between Manual Antonio, the most popular park in Costa Rica, and the famous Osa Penninsula. National Geographic named our area one of the most bio-diverse areas on the planet. From the house and pool you can see the ever changing pacific ocean, local islands, incredible wildlife, rainforest, and beautiful sunsets.

The food in the area is the best in Costa Rica and maybe some of the best we have ever had - think Napa in the South Pacific. Expats from around the world have created amazing culinary delights. We can recommend at least 10 restaurants in the area. You can drink the water and eat the food and not worry.

The home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, a full gourmet kitchen, laundry room, two outside patio areas, infinity pool, and a stone BBQ (boogie boards and monkey-finding rubber boots are in the garage:-).

The house is an extremely easy drive to the highway with a wide short road leading to the house. This should not be underestimated. Most homes in the area take a long time to drive up steep, single lane windy roads; Especially difficult at night. This may be the best feature:-)

This is not a resort town. It is an agrarian area with beautiful farms and unspoiled beaches and jungle. It is a place to explore and discover. It will excite your inner adventurer.
