This spectacular Ocean view home is located in the mountains above the coastal town of Hatillo and is at 1,200 ft. elevation giving it great ocean breezes and unbelievable views. The property is very private and has a long gated driveway. The property has a creek that you can hear from the house. The jungle surrounding the house is amazing and all of the local wildlife comes to visit including toucans, monkeys, sloths, and parrots.
The owner is a wildlife photographer and he has captured some fabulous photos which you can see here on this listing as well as hanging on the walls of the home. The home comes furnished and also includes the canvas prints!!
The kitchen features granite countertops and high-end stainless steel appliances. The living room has 2-story vaulted tongue and groove wooden ceilings!! Outside there is a large covered dining area, a BBQ area, and a nice sitting area all under the roof. There is also a large pool deck and a beautiful pool. Everywhere you go in the house you are focused on the ocean view. You can see the waves breaking up the coast for miles all the way to Manuel Antonio and you get sunsets all year long!!!
The first floor has a master bedroom with an en suite bathroom that opens up to the pool deck. In addition, there is the laundry room, and a large (120 sq. ft.) dehumidified walk-in pantry/storage room. There are two staircases to access the second floor. The one on the left takes you to a second master bedroom above the downstairs master. The staircase on the right takes you to two more bedrooms that share a full bathroom. This is perfect for guests because they have their own wing of the house.
It is a 5-minute drive down the mountain on partially paved roads to get to the town of Hatillo. Then, it is just a few more minutes to the nearest beaches and the town of Playa Dominical. It is only 20 minutes north on the paved coastal highway to the nearest local airport and 30 minutes to the City of Quepos and Manuel Antonio!!!! The Town of Uvita is 25 minutes to the south.
