Have your morning coffee on the deck while checking the surf breaks with all the little creatures abound and birds soaring.

About The Owner
I am originally from California. After traveling around the world, I spent many years as an attorney while raising my children. Soon after retirement, my love of travel and adventure took me back to Hawaii and soon to Costa Rica. My partner and I explored many areas looking for the perfect place in paradise...a place that offered jungle, wild life, uncrowded SURFING, Fishing and privacy! That special place soon became Pilon Pnt. We bought the land near the ocean, brought in electric, and built a beautiful Octagon home, with 2 cabinas, cabana, pool, landscape, virgin rain forest and 180 degree view of the SURF BREAKS! We spend many months a year here and have the best memories!!
The Owner purchased this house in 2003
Why The Owner chose Playa Zancudo
I wanted to build a home where I personally enjoy living. Where the people are friendly and there is so much surfing, fishing, beauty and wildlife!
What makes this house unique
The home does not only have a 180 degree view of the surf breaks.. it is surrounded by virgin rain forest with endless monkeys, parrots, toucans, sloths. I love taking outdoor showers and enjoy being part of the jungle yet near the beach. Nothing beats having a few cocktails on the deck while watching the waves and random thunder storms! Everyday is a new adventure that the whole family, including our newest additions can be a part of.
