Sunset ocean views, refreshing breezes, and lush mountains wrap this charming hideaway in one of the most desirable areas on the Costa Ballena, Playa Hermosa. This two bed/1 bath renovated home is approx. 1,100 sq. ft. It sits on 1,355m2 (1/3 of an acre) of verdant land. After a quick 5-minute drive up the mountain (4WD required), you enter this home through a private electric gate. The extra large carport and graveled parking area offers ample room for your cars, ATVs, and other toys.
Passing through the front door, you are immediately struck with the warmth of the natural hardwoods and Pacific Ocean in the distance. The remodel in 2019 focused on opening up the approx. 1,100 sq. ft. floor plan, enhancing the kitchen/living room area, and the bathroom/shower. In the kitchen, wood-trimmed countertops and stainless-steel appliances (including a gas stove) were installed. The hardwood island offers additional prep space and storage for the chef. Entertain your guests at the integrated bar, then watch the toucans while you wash dishes. This house has a very practical and inviting feel. And for those who work from home, the owner recently installed high speed, fiber optic for all your online needs.
When you wake up in the master bedroom, you are greeted by the Pacific Ocean and the colorful jungle canopy. The abundant monkey and bird life (toucans, parrots, scarlet macaws, among others), the waves crashing on the beach, and the creek in the valley below… it is a soundtrack that you will enjoy for years. The sliding doors lead you out to the side yard and covered terrace. The second bedroom has the same jungle and ocean views from the window. It, too, comes with a custom-made hardwood closet.
One of the highlight of the house is the covered terrace. Costa Rica is famous for outdoor living, and the expansive views of the Pacific (including the Osa Peninsula and Caño Island) enhance any moment. The ocean breeze arrives around 9am, and the mountain breeze descends after sunset. Whether dining or working at the table or reading and napping on the large daybed, the wonderment of Playa Hermosa is ever-present from the terrace.
Below the house, you will find a variety of fruit trees and flowering bushes. Behind the house, there is a large carport, parking area and secure storage bodega. And, there’s room on the side yard to add a bedroom or swimming pool. In addition, the owner installed escape-proof fencing around the entire property, so your dogs will be safe.
The community of Playa Hermosa is a friendly mix of Ticos and expats living the pura vida. There is a WhatsApp group, a road committee, and a water committee. ”Your Playa Hermosa Hideaway” is 5 minutes to the beach, 10 minutes to the many services of Uvita, and 15 minutes to Dominical. There aren’t many houses available with these characteristics, in this location. Come take a look today!
