Pura Vida! This Bamboo structure of a Tree House sits on the rolling hills of the Monte Grande Finca. The property brings the classic film 'Swiss Family Robinson' to life with monkeys swinging from treetops, lush green rainforests & of course.. The Beach! Casa Bambu is a three-story property that allows all sorts of travelers to enjoy their Tico/Tica Time! The first floor consists of an open aired garage & the Full Bathroom. The shower has nice water pressure which is always nice after a good hike. The second floor consists of one enclosed/open-aired bedroom with a unique picnic table on the porch. Very conducive for book reading, taking in the moment, playing card games with friends & enjoying Imperial Beer & Tapas! The third floor would be considered the Master that's connected to the kitchen, a sitting area, small table, an open aired bar & an additional half bath. Coffee in the mornings while watching the fuchsia sunrise is something that will enlighten your soul ! Lets not forget the pool. Guests will enjoy their private pool that consists of a small pool house & a storage unit. The pool house however Is not available for renting. After a breathless hike, catching some waves and eating local ceviche... The pool hits the money spot! Casa Bambu is an experience that brings travelers back to their roots with mother nature at her best! Guest Access: Once you have booked. We will provide a map & driving directions to the property. Each guest will be greeted in person & we can assist with any questions. The property has a private fence plus at least one of our property managers will be staying at Casa Monte Grande which is 100 meters away... Personal Concierge - Done! We know the best local spots to see the Costa Rican life that proves its the Happiest Country in the world! Interaction with Guests: This is up to the guest. We understand wanting to read a book in solitude with a quick hi & bye... But of course if you want to dance till the sun comes up, we can assist :) The Neighborhood: This is the best part! Yes your in a secluded rain-forest... But access to over six nearby beaches such as Playa Grande, Tamarindo, Conchal, Brasilitio, Playa Protrero & Playa Flamingo. Playa Grande is the closest at 8 miles away (roughly 5-7 min drive)... This down to earth beach consists of good people, a hole in the wall beach bar that serves drinks & whatever mamasita has cooked up for the day... The waves are notorious here! A quick walk more into Playa Grande 'city' from the beach has boutique hotels with restaurants/bars. Surf camps are within Playa Grande & of course Spanish/International classes are very close. Playa Grande looks like a town where Hollywood would create surf films, just has that vibe. Tamarindo is a definite must see town roughly 15 min drive away. This hipster beach town has your typical Tico restaurants all the way to high-end hotel lounges.. Tamarindo has a great Spanish/International school that actually my husband attended.. Let me know if you want the name of the facility. Nice variety of shopping, dancing & dining consist within Tamarindo. Playa Flamingo is again roughly a 15 min drive away. I would say this town has a more family/high-end feel. Beautiful views with Isla Plata (small island) off the coast which some Ticos paddle board to for exercise & fun. Couple of high rises & nice hotels lie on the beach with of course some finer restaurants/bars.. There is a super fun beach bar thats a must - I can provide ya the name! Enjoying your 4x4 rental car making your way to the house, is all part of the fun!! Stay away from tourist traps and experience real Costa Rica paradise living!!! Contact owner for discounts on rental cars - this is a MUST ! This new rustic, ecological custom home is a 100% bamboo structure with Teak wood floors, full kitchen, with a total of 3 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms. The pool is pristine, there is a laundry room & over 3,000 sqft of construction. Very clean, open air space. There is a local phone provided for wifi only - but lets be honest were out in the jungle - So lets cross our fingers it works ! Very safe and secure property with security cameras, caretaker & trusty guard dog onsite. This is a country retreat in the hills with a lot to see and do in the surrounding areas, so unless time is not an issue, a rental car is recommend to see, and experience the most you can during your vacation. This Oasis is in the heart of hundreds of acres of ranch land, on the rural outskirts of the sleepy little town of Matapalo... This little reserve known as Monte Grande (Name of Finca/Ranch) is where the monkey's, exotic birds, iguanas and other animals live freely. There are private hiking trails throughout the property that leads to a breath taking ocean viewpoint ideal for watching the sunsets. More
