AMAZING 12 ACRE PRIVATE ESTATE CLOSE TO MANUEL ANTONIO AND DOMINCAL.

Playa Matapalo Estate Rental Photos and Description

5 Bed, 3.5 Bath, Ocean View, Infinity Pool, 2 Master Suits, Close To All

Located 20 minutes south of the Quepos airport in the exclusive Hills of Portalon Estates, Vista Del Fuego offers breathtaking views that are among the finest available anywhere in the world. At an elevation of 500m (1,500 ft.), there is a constant breeze that keeps the air fresh and the temperature pleasant. Views of Manuel Antonio Park in the North and Punta Dominical in the South encompass a sweeping 45 km. vista of rivers, tropical rainforest, palm trees and several of Costa Rica's premier beaches. Views from the estate include a dramatic panorama of the Savegre River. In the distance it is possible to see beaches at Parrita, the Nicoya Peninsula, the Osa Peninsula and even Caño Island. Visitors to the 4.9 hectare (12.1 acre) estate can spend days simply relaxing by the pool, drinking Costa Rica's finest coffee and watching spectacular sunsets. Once you feel refreshed, adventure waits around every bend. Try an exhilarating zip line tour at nearby Hacienda Baru or ride horses through primary rainforest, savanna and mile upon mile of empty beaches. The world class beaches of Playa Matapalo are only a few quick kilometers down the road. Photos of the house and grounds can only begin to give you a glimpse of the wonders that await you here. The villa comfortably sleeps 10 people in five rooms. Completed in November, 2007 by Patrick Heinen of HEG Engineering, Costa Rica's premier home builder, Vista Del Fuego provides 300m (3,300 ft) of luxurious living on three levels and an oasis-style swimming pool. Spectacular artwork, created especially for Vista Del Fuego by Paul and Susanne Leasure after a visit to this beautiful country, adorns the walls.

4 wheel drive is an absolute must for any Costa Rica adventures. We have a very steep 200 meter approach on the dirt public road leading to our home that can be very intimidating to drivers with little off road experience. Most roads in the southern zone of Costa Rica are not paved, and conditions can change with the weather, so a 4 x 4 is the only way to ensure smooth travels. Experienced local taxi drivers and small shuttle buses (12 passengers) have no problems reaching our property. So please rent a 4 x 4, or hire a professional driver!

About Jesse Castro

Hola, Costa Rica lovers!

My name is Jesse Castro, I live in Boulder Colorado with my wife Ann and our 8 year old daughter Lennon. Originally from La Jolla, Ca and growing up in the ocean, Colorado after 6 years comes up a bit short on tropical sunsets! Pictured above is me and my mother Sharon who followed us to Colorado to be near her only granddaughter. Sharon is a true California girl and jumped at the chance to partner with her son on a vacation home in one of our favorite spots in the world.

Sharon is an executive with a fortune 500 company, specializing in corporate education, while my wife and I have been in the high end salon business for many years. Her a top hairstylist and me well... serial entrepreneur, adventurer, and 'Chief Bottle Washer'. We currently own a successful salon in Boulder Colorado.

Being able to experience the contrast between the Rocky Mountains and the amazing South Pacific region of Costa Rica has made us feel blessed beyond belief. It is our absolute pleasure to share our beautiful 3 home estate with friends and family in this magical region of the world. We invite you to feel welcome in our little slice of paradise!

Jesse Castro purchased this estate in 2012

Why Jesse Castro chose Playa Matapalo

This property has the perfect combination of privacy, security, and accessibility to the regions best beaches and attractions of the Pacific region. Perched on a high lot (1500') above the Pacific Ocean, the breezes and sunset views combine into tropical nirvana. Ten degrees (F) cooler than the beach and yet just a few kilometers away with an eagle eye view of the breaking surf. 'The Hills of Portalon' is a private 350 acre Eco-development, with just 27 home sites and more than 150 acres dedicated to rainforest protect.

What makes this estate unique

Vista Del Fuego is positioned perfectly to act as a private and secluded home base to countless adventures in the 'Southern Zone' of Costa Rica. The estate is located just 20 minutes south of Manuel Antonio and 15 minutes north of Dominical. It sits on a west facing hillside inside a secure gated property and abuts primary rainforest. The property has a seasonal stream running through the center adding to the ambiance.

On the 12 acre estate sits two exquisite homes with 9 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms. This would make a tremendous spot for special events; such as weddings, yoga retreats, or just a big family get together.

Come enjoy this magical property! Pura Vida!

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Thank you for sharing your beautiful house with us! Unbelievable view...Plenty to do here! We saw monkeys, sloths, iguanas, parrots, toucans, snakes and [more]... We would love to return to this paradise with our young daughter next time...We did and saw more than I can write here. Costa Rica is a beautiful country & the 'Ticos' are warm and friendly. Thanks again for a lovely stay..."

NEVER WANT TO LEAVE

This was a great place.
Loved every second of this house. Best sunsets in CR seen here. Not one bad part of this place, but having to leave. Dirt road was fun (make sure you rent or have a 4x4).

Beautiful and Private

  • 5 of 5
A wonderful home in a private setting with amazing views! Easy location for going to Quepos/Manuel Antonio or south to Dominical and Uvita. Immaculate home with space for everyone! We loved watching the sunset each evening from the pool and listening to the toucans every morning. Need 4wheel drive for the road back in, but well worth it!

Remote luxury, private, comfortable way to experience the CR jungle!

  • 5 of 5
A fabulous luxury house in a remote jungle setting gives the visitor a comfortable way to immerse themselves in the natural beauty that is Costa Rica. On property we say a sloth, several monkeys, tucans, parrots and more butterflies than in the butterfly farm. Mornings on this hill were paradisiacal with a blissful bird symphony. Centrally located between Quepos and Dominical you have your choice of all the best beaches in the southern region. Our favorite for a family was Playa Hermosa. Afternoon swims in the pool provided the perfect way to cool down and entertain the 2 year old. Elvis and Marlon were available whenever we needed them for help around the house. Marlon made the best tour suggestions and reservations too. Don't miss the boat tour and the nature walk and zip line at Baru.

Pura Vida in green jungle

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from twoo weeks in this beautiful home. We had some amazing adventures in Costa Rica. There were seven of us and we did it ALL, rafting, waterfalls, horseback riding, hot springs, zip lining, beach, Man Ant Park and it was all within easy driving distance of this locale. The pictures due it justice well and everything was represented well.
The view was great, the birds and animals were plentiful, especially the frogs. The few little problems we had were taken care of by the owner Jesse and his team. We do suggest a 4 wheel drive for the long dirt driveway. The cost was very fair and the experiences priceless. Highly recommend for adventurous adults and teens.
