Description

The Space

Open Bali Style home that allows you to feel a part of the natural surroundings with all comforts of modern living.....except TV. You will be the ONLY guest in my home at the time of your stay. The seperate guest bedroom and bath are private from the main house, but join with a walkway to the pool, and open air gathering area that includes internet, kitchen, dinning, living room and laundry. Clothing optional in the pool, as you are the only guest. I have hammocks and books to share as well as a few DVD's but it is better to bring your own selection if you want to watch a movie. I can make arrangements if planned in advance for massage, Reiki, facials, tours, private chef. There are several good restaurants in the area and I am located about 1/2 way between the town of Uvita and Ojochal. My home sits overlooking the Ballena National Marine park and is backed up to Primary Rain Forest....full of birds, monkeys, slothes, butterflies and more....all right here to enjoy close up. There is air conditioning available for an extra fee, but most do not need it, the evenings have cool breeze from the mountains and a light blanket is usually needed long before morning. There are ceiling fans in all areas. I love to share the peaceful beauty I have found here and will do my best to provide you with a very memorable experience that you will want to repeat again. There is much to entertain yourself in our area if relaxation is not your goal. We have Snorkeling, Scuba, Zip Lines, Mountain Biking, Fishing, Bird Watching, Hiking in Jungles, Waterfalls, Quad Tours, Surfing and surfing lessons, Yoga classes , Horseback Riding on Beach or Mountain trails to waterfalls, Marine Park and not far is Corcovado National Park, and more(URL HIDDEN) My home is open for all couples or singles, and Alternative Lifes Styles Welcome. It is also a great Honey Moon or Aniversary stay(URL HIDDEN) My pets are in the main house and not permitted in your bedroom, they are all very friendly and non threatening and love having company. You will also see many different jungle animals and birds if you are patient and around the house at the right time. I am bordering the jungle rain forest and a path way for many is right next to my home! BE SURE TO RENT A 4x4 car for your travels in Costa Rica's southern zone and to my home, it is not far off the main road but it is a bit of a climb!

Guest Access

The gathering area, pool and all gardens...everything except the building with my sleeping quarters.

Interaction with Guests

As much or as little as they desire and time permits. I work off of the property in the mornings some of the time and am busy with errands, so there is plenty of time for privacy during the day and around the pool. All you have to do is let me know your wishes. I am available to book tours and make suggestions always and is available I can prepare a private dinner for you or arrange a private chef with advance notice for dinners.

Getting Around

I recommend renting a 4x4 car so you have freedom to explore and come and go as you please.

I am bless with living in one of the most diverse ecological parts of the world, surrounded by tropical rainforest, filled with wildlife and beauty. In front of me is the Ballena National Marine Park, so jungle, mountain and ocean abounds. The perfect place to get back in touch with yourself and nature. It is my joy to be able to share this with others. I have been living here around 11 years, love it and know how to enjoy it and appreciate being able to show others. I love making people feel welcome and special and enjoy meeting new friends that come my way. My motto is Love Life.
