Location: Playa Lagarto, Costa Rica
The peace and tranquility you feel upon arriving at this home is breathtaking. Nestled among the rolling hills of Costa Rica’s Guanacaste province and close to the world-famous surf break at Playa Marbella, thisproperty represents the epitome of what many people dream of for the perfect Costa Rican home.
This is a secluded, ultra private spot among beautiful Costa Rican dry tropical forest. Views from the home extend over pristine forests and valleys to the Pacific ocean. There will never be traffic noise past the home as it is tucked at the end of a road where there is only one other homesite.
Abundant wildlife inhabits the surrounding jungle – this is a birdwatching paradise, with frequent visits from monkeys, armadillos, iguanas and more.
Yet the home is no rustic jungle retreat – it is nearly brand-new construction – completed in 2018 – with a
comfortable, modern aesthetic. Its pitched roof fills the main living and kitchen space with light and air. It is part of the Eco Lagarto residential community – you have the support of communal security, plus there are dozens of homes throughout the hillside so you can find plenty of human neighbors to socialize with as well.
Guanacaste’s spectacular beaches are only a few minutes’ drive from this home. Playa Marbella is a quick trip down the road and represents the absolute best surfing nearby. Playa Boca del Venado is the absolute closest option, which is an undiscovered, idyllic beach with a river mouth that feels like a place from a lost time.
Those looking for a truly Costa Rican experience, surrounded by forest in a serene oasis, should look no
