Villa vista de San Martin, is a lovely Mediterranean style - 2 level house - totally secluded in the breezy Escaleras hills, within 2 Kms of Dirt road, from the Costa-Nera highway.
Total privacy is assured, and no noise of the trucks ...
The views are outstanding over the jungle towards the OSA Peninsula, the swimming beaches at Ballena " Whales tail" and, in the distance the tiny island of Isla del Caño, where you can take snorkelling boat trips.
In April and May, the jungle trees turn bright yellow with flowers.
On the entrance floor, there is a large Master bedroom with ensuite shower room, a living room bar-kitchen and a beautiful terrace, with a table for 8 persons and comfortable seating.
Ideal for chilling watching the monkeys jump from tree to tree, often with babies on their backs, noisy toucans and parrots, and colourful humming birds.
On the lower level, a twin bedded guest room next to a shower room, a very large TV den with 2 comfortable single beds. From here you can reach the pool, via the covered patio with BBQ, bar, a dining table and Sun-loungers.
The pool is reached by a few steps. The water rarely gets chilly. A pool shower is above the flower bed. Most of our flowers are local, attracting the giant blue butterfly, we also are growing a herb garden.
Most of the art work is either local or from Central America.
Interested in hiking, just outside our gate, we have 4 jungle can walk loops bringing to the coast and back up again to the house.
You could see Coatis, wild pigs, sloths, anteaters.
