This spectacular house takes advantage of the incredible south Pacific coast views of Ballena (the Whale’s Tail), the Osa Peninsula, surrounding mountains and jungle for a truly tropical indoor/outdoor luxury vacation experience. Set in a 60 acre private nature reserve teeming with wildlife, 3 minutes above a spectacular beach, tropical modern Lattice House enjoys ocean views from every room. The award-winning house was designed by Costa Rican architect Alvaro Rojas with design features added by Balinese architect Ketut Arthana. Custom designed finishes and furnishings--stone floors,windows and doors, lattice work, cabinets, furniture and accessories--were imported from Bali. The house was featured in the Feb. 2008 edition of the architectural and design magazine Su Casa and is included in the recently published 1000 X Architecture of the Americas. You will find no more convenient and beautiful beautiful setting from which to enjoy the beaches and jungle of Costa Rica.
The property comprises about 60 acres with only two houses, neither of which can be seen from the other. This area is entirely private. The road or driveway is an easy walk down (...and good exercise, up) to the coast road--cross it and you're on Playa Hermosa. The royal palm lined road passes through acres of park-like spaces (with scampering animals). Beyond the park you can walk into a very different world: tropical rain forest, virtually untouched, with only a few rough trails among huge primary and old secondary forest.
Playa Hermosa: This beach truly is 'beautiful beach'--palm lined, backed by rainforest covered mountains. When huge flocks of pelicans glide down the beach, you'll feel like you are in Jurassic Park. Most locals will tell you that this is the best swimming beach-- from Dominical to the 'whale's tail'. While the beach at Dominical, a few miles north, is the prime beach for surfers--known world-wide, it can be rough. Believe it or not, Playa Hermosa is almost always virtually deserted--you might see a few souls in the distance. Even on Costa Rican holidays you'll not feel like you are in a mob. And the water....! South Pacific blue, always the perfect temperature, Californians, leave your wetsuits at home.
