On the gulf side of the Nicoya Peninsula sits a precious parcel with a rustic 3 bedroom 1 bathroom house, a gorgeous vista of the Gulf of Nicoya, dozens of fruit trees, and its own water source.
The lot is half lawn and fruits trees, half cool, refreshing forest. The home sits with a view overlooking the gulf and the shrimp ponds in the far distance. Built in the traditional way with cement block, this casa has a remodeled kitchen, a full bathroom, a large bedroom at the back and two smaller bedrooms adjacent to the living and dining area. There’s a porch at the front large enough to entertain.
50 meters beyond is a large patio adjacent to the a workshop complete with a lumber storage area, a tiled floor, and a secure cement block room for secure storage of tools and equipment. In front of the patio is a cabína with a loft sleeping space and French doors that fully open to reveal the view. Steps away is an organic, composting, outhouse toilet and outdoor shower.
A few steps further down the hill is a natural plunge pool, set within the forest for a magical swimming experience that also includes a view of the gulf beyond.
This area of Guanacaste is rural, full of cattle pastures as far as the eye can see. Livestock and fishing are the two traditional activities of Copal de Quebrada Honda.
Yet the real treasure of this property is the water source. In a province plagued with drought, this well never runs dry. A new pump was purchased in 2017. As a result of the water on the property, we have begun to see crab and langostino in the creek at the bottom of the lot.
This is a real paradise for anyone wanting to get away from the city for a truly peaceful country experience. For those looking to have a hobby farm, the water is a blessing. There are some animal enclosures below the house, in need of some love, but sturdy and adaptable. The property has been operated organically for 8 years, using no pesticides and only natural fertilizer; as a result more and more birds and animals have come reside there. The fruit produced here are carambola, coconut, 2 types of bananas, plantain, jocote, naranja agria, naranja dulce, limon dulce, limon criollo, limon mandarina, mango y manga, noni, cas, guanabana, y acuacate.
