Are you looking to live a simpler life in the jungle while still enjoying the comforts of home? If so, we have the off-grid jungle home for you! This home is located near the end of the road in the jungles of Ojochal so you get the privacy you desire with minimal neighbors other than the monkeys and birds. This home gets electricity from a private hydro-electric generator and from a modest array of solar panels which both feed into the battery system that provides you with sufficient power to run your appliances and gadgets without a connection to the grid, and more importantly with a $0 electrical bill every month! Water is supplied by the local Ojochal ASADA or if you prefer you can also choose an existing spring-fed water source in order to keep your already-low water bill even lower – your choice!

The property includes two legal lots – a 2232 m2 lot with the home AND a 12,768 m2 jungle and waterfall lot. The house lot is surrounded by lush jungle and landscaping with easy gravel road access. The jungle and waterfall lot has over 3 acres of trees and wildlife with your own big waterfall with natural dipping pool at the bottom plus a couple of flat areas where you could plant your garden or keep chickens. Both pieces of land are included in the deal and complement each other to give you an incredible deal on a sizable chunk of land.

The home is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath 2-story jungle beauty with a bonus office space that could be used as an office or small bedroom. As mentioned, electricity is supplied by batteries that are fed by the personal hydro-electric generator plus a modest array of solar panels that provide free electricity without sacrificing the environment! The upstairs is the main living area and hosts the kitchen, living room, bathroom, two bedrooms (including master), and a gorgeous balcony. The downstairs has a spacious common area – perfect for living room and maybe to add a small kitchenette – plus a bedroom, bathroom, and the bonus office space. This could be a great setup for a multi-generation household or even a separate space to rent out with a little work.

The jungle lot encompasses many of the natural wonders that we moved to Costa Rica to enjoy. The area is fringed by rivers which means the area is protected from permanent building, so you feel like you are a million miles from anyone while you are walking your personal trails watching the wildlife and enjoying your own 20+ foot waterfall with dipping pool. Truly spectacular and private where you can bathe in the forest then bathe in the crisp waterfall dipping pool. There is also some clear level spots that could be used for gardening and perhaps for keeping chickens or other small livestock.

If you are ready to start your jungle adventure while making a smaller footprint, then let’s make an appointment to show you just how special this home is.
