There are two enchanted areas nearby the Costa Ballena, but far enough away to make one feel that they are a bit off-the-beaten-path. Once is the Tinamastes Valley and the other is the valley of San Juan de Dios. There you will find a gorgeous landscape adorned with rolling hills, pristine rivers, waterfalls and a degree of flora and fauna that you would think only existed in surreal paintings.
Nevertheless, this place is real and offers the opportunity to own your own piece of Costa Rica Southern zone paradise.
The location is less than a half-hour from the coast and popular beaches like Playa Dominical. Just minutes away is the quaint village of Platanillo, which has most of the provisions you will need on a day-to-day basis. And the "big city" of San Isidro de El General, second largest in Costa Rica outside of the metropolitan area of San Jose, is also a short half-hour drive.
The property features 12 sprawling hectares with a creek and thick jungle area, pastureland, with ample areas for additional building.
The home is well built solid concrete block and as you walk in you are greeted by an open floor plan with dining and living room that flows to the back of the home, with the kitchen is off to your right.
The main home has 2 large identical master bedrooms, both with en-suite bathrooms, and a small office, entertainment center, or additional bedroom. There is a large and very open living room and ample kitchen. The home has a wrap around deck under cover. There is an also a gorgeous pool area with 2 small "rancho-style" huts allowing you to lounge in the shade.
There is also a two bedroom and one bath guest-house. This home currently has a live-in caretaker that can continue on with the new owner, as desired.
If you like horses this property has you covered completely with stables and plenty of room for grazing. The stables could also be converted into a second guest-house.
There are various trails throughout the property, both up along the ridge and down along the year-round creek, with waterfall, that borders the property. All main points are accessed via a private road lined with majestic palm trees.
This property is perfect for someone wanting to get away from it all, but still enjoy a luxurious setting that\'s close enough to all the popular destinations so that you will never get bored.
But, then again, who could get bored living in a place like this?
