You’ll enjoy the ambiance and the privacy of the farm setting . The Tropical House has large view windows to the tree canopy and beyond to the valley. On the second floor are 3 bedrooms and two baths. On the first floor is the kitchen, dining room, living room, laundry and a full bathroom. Below, at ground level is the terrace, pool, shower and recreation area. To our knowledge, this Tropical House is a unique construction in Costa Rica.
The facilities have been established on the ruins of an old gravel operation.The landscape although treed now was originally leveled by heavy machinery. We therefore have a flat top mesa in the center of the property where we have built a cottage for ourselves. The bench below the mesa was carved out of the mountain leaving a large level field stretching north south. The Tropical House / Treehouse was built there in 2000 and the Summer House / Treehouse 200 M Northeast was built in 2010.

Guests have the entire house and the use of all the surrounding natural landscape.
The Tropical House is suitable for intimate family reunions as there are sufficient spaces for cots with adjoining washroom facilities to accomodate as many as 10 adults. Meal preparations are carried out in a fully equipped kitchen . Children love the opportunity to interact with the goats, chickens and dogs.
Finally, there are nooks and crannies everywhere to relax and enjoy the farm scene. We have built a swing, a nature trail, a campfire cookout area and the adjoining field is suitable for volleyball or scrub soccer. We invite you to plan family gatherings or business meetings in order to make use of the facilities.

The property is private with steep natural boundaries that enhance security. 250 species of birds have been noted . You will have keys to two gates and the house.
The Pool in the terrace below the Tropical House is a favorite meeting place for everyone. We find 10 PM is a reasonable time to conclude activities there.
I am retired from my profession as a helicopter pilot , but I continue to be engaged in an entrepreneurial project in aviation. Our home for 16 years has been an exercise in making a unique place that maximizes the special topographical features left over from the gravel operation. Goats, chickens and two dogs are our pets ; I have a special interest in amateur engineering and two of the three houses on the property exhibit some of those skills.
I am not fond of traveling but I enjoy offering hospitality to those who do travel. Good conversation around a campfire, performing some music, making something work better are some of my pleasures. My wife and I have been happily married for 47 years and we have 3 grown children, one of whom lives here in Costa Rica with her husband and my two grand-children. Our goal for hosting is to expand our circle of friends by sharing what we have and what we are.
