Secluded Jungle Getaway In Portalon With Guest House And Private Nature Reserve
Hidden away in the jungles of Portalon, just 5 minutes off the Costanera Highway, you will find this one-of-a-kind conservation property that has been meticulously planned to be in harmony with nature since it was founded 50 years ago. Minimal deforestation over the years has given rise to a majestic jungle that is teeming with plant and animal life. A quebrada naturally divides the 25-acre property into two almost identically shaped and sized land parcels, one of which has been entirely dedicated to conservation. The property is completely fenced and posted with multiple gated access points.
Enjoy quick access to the expansive beaches of Playa Linda and Playa Matapalo with just a short 10-minute drive, or test yourself in the world-class surf on the shores of Dominical 10 minutes further south. Manuel Antonio National Park and the town of Quepos are approximately 30 minutes north. There is outstanding fishing and diving from Marina Pez Vela. Small domestic flights are offered from La Managua Airport just south of Quepos providing convenient travel options for you and your guests.
Conservation Property with Natural Water Sources
The main house is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath 1700 sq ft structure made of solid concrete block construction and was built in 1974. It is in excellent condition. Colonial style clay tiling in the living and dining areas gives a classic and elegant feel that flows seamlessly with tropical hardwood accents and vaulted ceilings. The kitchen has custom teak cabinetry and transitions to the outdoor covered patio and pool area with a wood top bar for entertaining al fresco. The master bedroom has an en suite bath and a walk in closet. Behind the pool are a series of wooden decks that overlook the expansive jungle panorama, a perfect place for a yoga or a meditation platform.
The guest casita was built in the early 2000’s and is a 250 sq ft, 1 bed, 1 bath, studio with a deck that overlooks the jungle. A small teak orchard and assorted fruit trees adorn the landscape throughout. Both houses are supplied with water from a spring with legal concession on the property.
Private Setting with Jungle Views and Room to Expand
This offering consists of two mirror image, titled properties on each side of the quebrada. On the main property there is plenty of space to expand, if you would like to add additional gardens or casitas. The other titled parcel is on the other side of the quebrada and is untouched jungle that provides refuge and water for the local wildlife.
Wether you would like to establish a nature retreat or just have a sustainable place to live with an off-the grid feel, this unique property is a perfect fit for someone who is willing to be hands on with their surroundings and live immersed in nature.
