Additional amenities & feature info
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. 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.

About the neighbourhood
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 bo...
