General description

  • Secondary home
Beautiful, peaceful jungle retreat just minutes down an idyllic rural road to Caribbean beaches. Open air style home perfect for listening to the jungle and lazily absorbing the wonders of magical Costa Rica. Very rural authentic Costa Rica, a small village store is 500 m up the road, the beach 500m down the road. Very easily accessible with public transportation. Caribbean hot spots for delicious food, live music, and all kinds of adventure are between 15 minutes and an hour away.

Needs and Animals

  • My property
  • Fish
We are looking for a responsible trustworthy individual or couple to look after our home. We are located in rural Costa Rica and although the area is very safe and friendly, due to the design of our house it is important to maintain a presence and would be considered careless amoungst the community not to have the house occupied. We are in the process of selling the property and the house sitter may be asked to provide access with prior notice to our real estate agent. There are a few village dogs in the area that visit regularly for an afternoon snacks.

Pura Vida is in abundance here. This is the real Costa Rica. All of our neighbors are friendly and a stroll to the beach can lift any spirits. It's quite likely that you will be the only person on the beach once there, maybe a lone fisherman or some local kids building sand castles. The village of San Clemente is amoungst the banana plantains and the occasional truck is the only reminder of this at our home. The Congo monkeys can be heard day and night and often observed from a hammock on the upstairs deck. Morphos flit by constantly enjoying the excess of bananas and plantains available on the property. It's easy to disconnect here even tho we have wifi and the port city of Limon is only 17 km away. On occasion the electricity or water may go out of briefly. All the bedrooms are screened in and the beds all have mosquito nets, however this is the jungle and bugs and critters are ubiquitous. There is currently high speed wifi, the house sitter will be asked to cover both enet, and electricity payments for the time of their stay. Usually this equals about 60$ USD total per month.

Tourism and Leisure

  • Forest
  • Beach
Tourists flock to Costa Rica every year in the millions and few rarely get to experience the real Pura Vida. Although there are many, "not to be missed" experiences, the real beauty of this place can be found in simply enjoying the wonders of nature that are everywhere, or a caffecito with a friendly local.
