Our home is situated on 2 1/2 (1 hectare) acres of peaceful surroundings in the small mountain town of Birri. Only 7.5 miles from the San Jose International Airport.
The house is 3000 ft2 with 3 floors, which include 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths, and open kitchen living room floor plan. The style is a Louisiana French Acadian House.
Four of the bedrooms have double beds and one bedroom/playroom has a single bed. The master bedroom has a king size bed and master bath. There is custom wood cabinetry and beautiful wood detail throughout the whole house. The first floor has gorgeous wood flooring and the second and third have cozy carpet.
We also have 2 large porches. The back porch is screened in and has a hammock and table/benches so you can eat or relax outside without being bothered by the insects. The front porch has 2 porch swings and a teak bench to enjoy the view of the yard.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a gas stove/oven and all you need to prepare your meals(not including food). We have towels and bed linens available for your use too, as well as a washer and dryer.
Food and bathroom toiletries, are not included. Though we will try to keep cleaning supplies available for the house for short term stays.
There are several nearby convenience stores within walking distance, as well as a restaurant, pharmacy, fruit stand, and hardware store, all about 500 meters away.
We have a selection of English books for your reading pleasure available and toys for the kids. The house has Wi-Fi and cable TV.
**There is also a swing set and playhouse/sandbox in the yard.
The views from our house to the Central Valley and Barva Volcano are exquisite; and the yard has at least ten different types of fruit trees, including mango, banana, and guayaba/guava as well as other plants and trees that flower all year long. There is also a river at the bottom of the hill for you to explore. The yard is lined by a bamboo privacy fence.
Our town, Birri, is located in the Central Valley of the Province of Heredia, about 1 1/2 hours from some of the most beautiful beaches in the Americas on the Pacific Coast.
In fewer than 3 hours you can be on the Caribbean Coast or visit famous Arenal Volcano. Volcan Poas and several canopy tours are located about 45 minutes or less from our house. We actually live at the foot of Volcan Barva, which is an inactive volcano with a national park where you can hike and enjoy the cloud forest with all its strange and beautiful vegetation.
Café Britt offers an amazing coffee plantation tour and is only 15 minutes away. This is coffee plantation country due to the fertile volcanic soil and temperate climate.
The climate has spring-like temperatures all year long. You will only need a light sweater for some of the cool nights or after a nice rain; but shorts and tank tops are what you should pack.
We have our resident pets who are there to keep you company as well. Lucy and Blossom are our 2 cats who live on the front porch.
***Finally, we are strict about the amount of people not only staying in our house, but coming to visit. So if you are interested in having a party, get together, reunion, wedding, anniversary, or event of any kind, please communicate that to me, because we have a different rate for any events/get together that involves more than 10 people in the house. Thank you so much for understanding.
If you have any specific questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
***Our property manager is my sister in law, Teresa Lobo. She is there to help you with anything you need.
We are very excited about being able to offer our home to you and can’t wait to begin sharing our little bit of paradise with you this way, and hoping that you will be blessed!
