Pura Vida. This is a bird watchers paradise. Wildlife is why we chose this spot. Guided walks by a trained botanist & nature guide publisher are available upon request.
You will need a 4WD car to reach the house due to the steep mountain road. We are about 15 minutes from the Tambor Airport. You can arrange for the rental car company to meet you there.
Tambor: Small grocery stores, local restaurants, golf course, and a Saturday farmers market at the pier for organic produce and fresh seafood.
Cóbano (20 min drive): Major grocery stores, pharmacy, bank, and gas stations.
Montezuma (35 min drive): Zip lining, horseback riding, ATV rentals, and beachside dining.
We welcome families and travelers who will respect the house. It has taken a lot of time & energy to create this magical spot, high in the clouds, and abundant with the best of Costa Rica's natural beauty.
I have lived in Carmel Valley more than 30 years. It is Paradise. I'm a winemaker and CPA and it is a good balance of my favorite people & things. Love all food & wine events here like Pebble Beach & Big Sur Food & Wine. Come & enjoy a great place to visit.
