Description from owner

Description

Casa Roja is one of three fully-equipped holiday homes set in the idyllic Finca Estrella. The living area and main bedroom are set amongst the tree canopy - perfect for bird, sloth and monkey watching. A second downstairs bedroom is ideal for accommodating a second couple or older children. Spend your evenings marvelling at the fairytale sunset or star-gaze from either the roof terrace or the balcony that overlooks the gulf.

The 18m pool is a two minute walk away or the more adventurous can surf. paddle-board or kite-surf.

Further details indoors

Casa Roja was finished in May 2007 and is a beautiful modern holiday home.

The first (ground) level comprises the pretty blue bedroom, a practical laundry/storage area and an outdoor shower. The blue bedroom has a toucan hand-carved in the wooden door, queen-size bed with orthopaedic mattress, closet, fan and funky triangular sink. The laundry has a washer, dryer, toilet and sink with a lockable storage area.

The laundry has a washer, dryer, toilet and sink with a lockable storage area. There is a hammock area outside for you to relax in and keep an eye out for the local sloth.

The second (upper) level is reached via the spiral staircase. It is air-conditioned and has a well-equipped kitchen/dining/lounge area with granite countertops, fridge, gas stove, granite breakfast bar, dining chairs and sofas. The balcony is perfect for relaxing and gives great views of the Gulf and Osa Peninsula and the surrounding rainforest, home to hundreds of birds, sloths, toucans, scarlet macaws and squirrel, white-faced & howler monkeys. The second bedroom has a closet , queen-size bed with orthopaedic mattress and is separated from the lounge by a glass block half-wall. There is a shower room off the bedroom and this has fish hand-carved in its wooden door.

The spiral staircase leads up to the third level roof terrace which again gives great views of the Gulf and the rainforest. It is wonderful to sit up there and gaze at the stars at night.

Further details outdoors

Ride or walk the finca trails looking for bird and wildlife, relax in a hammock, barbecue in the rancho at the pool, surf the world-class breaks, kite-surf, fish or go sports-fishing, take a lazy boat ride down the Rio Coto or watch for whales and dolphins on a boat trip over to the Osa Peninsula where Corcovado National Park is located.

The beach and local surf break/kite-surf spot at Pilon is 10 minutes away where you can buy the fishermen's fresh catch. Pavones with its touristy restaurants, a surf shop and yoga studio is 20-25 minutes away depending on the time of year.

Location description from owner

The Province of Puntarenas region

Puntarenas is the southernmost province of Costa Rica with a climate that is hot and humid. The dry season runs from December to April then the rains start again, they reach a peak in October and then start to fade.

In the green season, the rains normally occur for an hour or so in the afternoon and then the sun comes out again.

Pavones

For surfers, the surf can be up at any time of the year although the rainy season - August to December - is usually best. Kite-surfing is at its best between December and April. The nearest beach, Pilon, has a great break - usually quiet - and the famous world-class Pavones break is a 20 minute drive away. You can see the lines on the water from Finca Estrella.

To boost your spirit and fitness level, yoga classes in Pavones- 20 minutes away - run all year round. Turtles nest on the local beaches, hike past the giant bamboos to our waterfall, take a cooling swim in the refreshing Cuervito river, a lazy boat trip down the Rio Coto from Zancudo or dolphin and whale spotting as you zip across to the Osa Peninsula, to where Corcovado National Park is located, is unforgettable or boogie board at the shallow sandy waters of Zancudo beach.

If fishing is your thing then take a trip with one of the local fishermen or go sportfishing from Zancudo or Golfito, making sure to sample the quesadillas at Banana Bay Marina when you get back! If you want to eat it but don't want to catch it yourself then a visit to the fishermen at local Pilon beach, 10 minutes away, is a must.

For wildlife, take a walk/ride early in the morning or late afternoon to spot monkeys, or sit on the terrace/balcony following the mournful cry of the toucan at sunrise and sunset. Watch for the giant blue Morpho Azul butterfly flap past, or the myriad of smaller colourful varieties crossing your path. A squawk overhead will be a scarlet macaw, look out for them on the wild almond tree above the pool. Sloths are spotted often, munching away on their favourite leaves.

The local bull fiestas at Conte and Naranjo are worth a visit as are the cabalgatas where locals show off their prowess on horseback. Eat churros (stick donuts) and sample local fayre from the buzzing stalls.
