Casa Arbol

Located in the community of Balcones de Majagual this unique  2-story home overlooks the Pacific Ocean and one of Central America's largest private wildlife corridors, making incredible wildlife sightings an almost daily occurrence. A five-minute drive down the communities private road will take you to three of the world’s most beautiful beaches, Playa Maderas, Playa Playones and Playa Majagual.  Casa Arbol was built to be the perfect balance of tropical open-air living and modern comfort. High ceilings provide extraordinary views through our state-of-the-art screen system. This unique amenity brings you the fresh air, the crashing of waves, and the calls of exotic birds -- all while making sure nothing but the fresh air actually comes inside. The home overlooks a low valley and its position is perfect for some extraordinary bird and monkey watching from inside the house or on our two decks. The house is supported by massive eucalyptus trunks and curved wood ceilings built from sustainable timber. Wi-Fi internet is available throughout the house and grounds. The living room features a new large flat screen TV, a Sony audio system, DVD library, art collection, and leather and wood furniture and furnishings by the architect who designed the home.The master and guest bedrooms both have forest and ocean views, custom lighting, and their own bathrooms with beautiful stonework throughout. In keeping with the eco-conscious nature of the house, piping hot water is provided by our solar hot water heater. There is a fully equipped kitchen, a new refrigerator, a microwave, gas oven/stove, and purified water available for your convenience. Bird and wildlife watching from the house or on the many hiking and nature trails, is incomparable. Howler monkeys live in the trees around the house in large numbers – and you will hear them each day around sundown as they prepare for the night. November thru April is Ocelot and Margay cat season – all seen on many occasions. Kinkajou will likely visit at night next to the porch in the canopy, where the fruits they loves grow and ripen in the green months, May through November. Sloth, Coatimudi and a multitude of other animals will all visit at various times.  Enjoy the custom stonework, stone showers and countertops, outdoor shower and the hammock on the pool deck An additional sunset deck in the very tops of the trees above the house provides the perfect place to enjoy your morning coffee or watch the sun set in the evenings over the Pacific below. The Master bedroom is an incredible space, all stone, wood, custom lighting and furniture. The vista of the ocean below or the night sky surrounding you -- after lights out it is difficult to tell whether you are indoors or outdoors. Magical. A gorgeous shared plunge pool set on the edge of the hill allows for incredible view of the Pacific- particularly at sunset!  Whether watching a Kinkajou eat from the trees in front of you while relaxing in the pool, learning to howl like a Howler monkey out on the observation deck, or eating your first homemade bowl of gallo pinto, Casa Arbol is guaranteed to give you a vacation you will never forget.

"Casa Arbol is amazing! The house is surrounded in screen, so you can see the out of doors from nearly every location inside the house. Having exclusive access to and parking at the beach was a bonus. The staff was very helpful and security visible doing their rounds in the evening. Sharing the pool works if you have quiet neighbors, which we did for three out of the four nights. Our faves: my teenagers loved the pool and hammocks, my husband enjoyed eating sunset meals outside, and I did a little birdwatching from the deck"  Susan, April 2017
