Drake Bay Cottage Rental Photos and Description
2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms sleeps 4+
La Cuesta Roja S.A.
If you have ever dreamed of being surrounded by flowering plants, smells that say fresh, oxygen filled air, hundreds of varieties of exotic birds, greenery, bright blue skies, gorgeous views in every direction all with the subtle sound of waves reaching the shores, this is the place for you. An extraordinary hide out where you and a loved one can immerse yourselves in the natural beauty of this unique paradise.
There are few places in the entire world that are as stunningly beautiful, private and safe as La Cuesta Roja, S.A., our home, available to you. If this, one of a kind, property was in California, it would be a 20 million dollar property and most likely, not available to rent. Ideally located near the renowned Corcovado National Park, Drake Bay where Sir Francis Drake hid from pirates, and the Terraba Sierpe National mangrove preserve. Tours of these and other local destinations available by pick up right in front of the house.
No matter what your pleasure is; fishing, swimming, whale watching, swimming with the dolphins, zip lining, horse back riding, kayaking and more, it is all available right from the very private beach in front of the house. This is truly a place you will think is only viewable in the movies and available to millionaires. Warning, you will want to pinch yourself when you look around and see where you are.
La Cuesta Roja is our private home perched on a hill overlooking the big blue and magnificent Pacific Ocean where you can watch whales pass by. Turn your head slightly and you are looking at a vast palm lined beach which is part of the island across the river. Turn again and you are looking up the incredibly beautiful and wild Sierpe River and the biggest mangrove reserve in Central America.
Looking up the river you can see two distinct mountain ranges in the distance. A slight turn again and you see where the river meets the magnificent and wild Rain forest.
You can literally see thousands and thousands of acres but miraculously, you cannot see another house. Sound like a movie setting? Wait until you see it.
Our home for rent is still our home where we spend nearly half the year. It needs to be said that this is a rental property for the healthy and adventurous and not a good place for those who are not in good physical condition or not seeking adventure. While it has most of the comforts; my wife always asks if you like camping as a prerequisite to enjoying this special place. Location, location, location our home is not fancy, new or in of its self fabulous but the location is.
When you arrive at our very private beach by boat (there is no other way to get here) there is a concrete walkway winding it's way up the slope to where the house is set. There are several places where you will want to stop on the assent just to absorb the beauty.
With any luck you will be met by our happy and smiling caretaker who will, with the help of our boat driver, help carry your luggage, groceries, water, beer etc up to the house.
Provided we supply the transportation you will be orientated by one of us and shown the ropes. The beds will have clean fresh linens; the towels will be clean and ready. The refrigerator will be on and cold and you will be ready to settle in. It may take a few minutes to come to realize you are actually seeing the views you will be seeing.
The boat captain will depart and you will be on your own. For your safety and convenience, our caretaker will remain there the entire time of your stay in his home below.
The home has two bedrooms each with private bathroom, flushing toilets, sinks and hot showers. The master bedroom has a king size bed the guest room has two wide twins that can be pushed together to make a king.
