YOUR PRIVATE PARADISE IN THE RAIN FOREST

Tambor House Rental Photos and Description

Custom Home and Swimming Pool,4 BR + Sofa bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-12)

One of a kind custom home set in a private 100 acre dry tropical rain forest high above Playa Tambor. You will wake up to the sound of howler monkeys and the 'dawn chorus! This is a birdwatcher's paradise and this forest edge property is unique in the variety and number of birds seen. Great hiking and walking trails along with a secluded waterfall within walking distance from our home.

A fully equipped kitchen opens to a spacious dining and living area. A large tiled and covered deck has an outdoor seating area and large dining area for enjoying the outdoors. The swimming pool is surrounded by beautiful tropical floral gardens that attract humming birds and friendly toucans; and trees that attract families of howler monkeys. Breathtaking views surround our home. There are four spacious bedrooms-the master has its own bathroom. The living room has two futons which can be used for additional sleeping spaces. All linens and towels are provided. If desired, a cook and maid service can be provided.

Playa Tambor is a small village with a 'local' feeling. There are good restaurants, fishing, and many touring opportunities. We have on-site staff to answer any questions. Please view more photos on Instagram @casatoucan.

Come enjoy our tropical paradise.

We sailed into Bahia Ballena in 1989, met the mayor of Tambor who took us on horseback to see the property. We fell in love with the views, the privacy, and especially, the 'Ticos.' This is a very special place to recharge your batteries. No TV necessary- it is the real 'nature channel.'

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

We had this home built as a family retreat. It is unique in that each generation that visits loves the house and setting without the distractions of modern life- there is real communication between everyone.

Amazing!

This was the most relaxing vacation we have ever been on. Waking up to the howler monkeys and birds chirping. Having our morning tea amongst the wildlife on the porch overlooking the bay was priceless. We loved our daily walks up the hill from the house, spotting the birds, flowers and butterflies. The house was so spacious and cool, situated with the most amazing view of the bay even from the swimming pool!
We enjoyed cooking fresh fish on the BBQ from the wharf and visiting the farmers market on Mondays for the most amazing fresh produce. The locals were really friendly and helpful.
We plan on returning again and again.

This was my second time staying at this house and it was even more enjoyable than the first. The house is very comfortable and fully equipped for a small group or family. We made daily use of the pool which has a great view of Bahia Balena. I noticed the landscaping had been improved all around the house . Many new colorful plants. We stayed a week but wish we could have stayed longer.

Amazing Vacation Home

This house is a perfect place to escape from the normal day to day. Tambor is a quiet town away from the crazy tourist areas, but there are a lot of activities to do within a 30-40 minute drive, so definitely rent a 4WD car. The location is also very convenient because it is close to the Tambor airport, which you can fly directly to from the capital, San Jose. The house was very well maintained and clean and my favorite place to spend time was the patio (fully furnished) where you could watch the sun rise and just soak in the incredible view. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone interested in a relaxing vacation. I have been here 3 times with family and friends and will definitely be returning!

Off the beaten path with a view you can't believe! That said, you're minutes from the beach and great places to get and drink. Only

Not to be missed

P.S. The monkeys are amazing!
