Welcome To Your Own Slice Of Paradise
Nestled in the jungle, this stunning, open-concept home is perfectly situated on a 5-acre tropical estate with a gorgeous, white water ocean view, and absolute privacy. Located in the mountains of Escaleras in the secure, gated community of Marina Vista II, you are about a mile from the ocean, at an 850 ft (259 m) elevation, and overlooking the quaint fishing village of Dominicalito Bay and Tree Island. You’ll be within minutes of world-class waterfalls, both surfing and swimming beaches, and all manner of tropical amenities and adventures.
This 4-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom home has 3500 ft2 inside space and 6800 sq. ft of indoor/outdoor living space. Constructed in 2016 and meticulously maintained, each part of this house prioritizes not only efficiency and security, but comfort, beauty, and Costa Rica’s unique aesthetic. A water concession is approved for the property! While it has been family-owned and never rented, it represents a fantastic rental opportunity. It has been optimized for efficiency, comfort, and utility but remains in every sense luxurious.
In addition to the value of a spectacular home in the exclusive Marina Vista community, the property includes a private and separate building lot that could be segregated or built on in order to create another tropical estate with beautiful ocean views (water and electricity onsite).

The open-concept great room includes the atrium, kitchen, and living room which open through a wide sliding glass doorway to the front porch.

Marble-accented #1 porcelain tiles from Spain span the floors of the main living area, while the tropical hardwood ceiling is created from Pochote wood and includes 8 ceiling fans and lights that brighten every corner of your home. The living room and kitchen cabinetry have been handcrafted with extremely rare Cristobol hardwood. The massive kitchen island constructed from one giant piece of Cenizero serves as a captivating centerpiece for the kitchen. The kitchen’s pearl blue granite countertops and Samsung and Frigidaire brand-name appliances make preparing meals for you and your family a pleasure.

Each room has its own en-suite bathroom and outdoor shower that exits to the pool.

The rear atrium leads to a home within a home. This suite offers a king-sized bedroom, laundry room, full kitchen, living room, bathroom (complete with matching natural stone shower), and hidden safe.

Master Bedroom and Bathroom – 586 sq. ft (54.4 m2)
The master bedroom is truly the soul of this paradise casa.

Watch sunset in the elevated king-sized bed with its heart-shaped purple heart tropical hardwood headboard.
The Master Bathroom gives the atmosphere of rinsing clean under a fresh tropical waterfall in the comfort of your own home.

If the Master Bedroom is the casa’s soul, then the Infinity Pool is its heart. This crystal blue pool will likely be where you entertain many of your guests while they cool off and breathe in the fresh ocean air.
The pool is a comfortable 4 ft 7 in (1.4 m) deep with 8 underwater bar stools to provide plenty of lounge seating for guests. Whether it be a late-night party or a midnight dip, luminescent glow in the dark tiles and programable Savi pool light provide the pool with a positively ethereal radiance.
The infinity pool has an energy efficient eco pump and filtration system with ultra-violet purification system. All cleaning and testing equipment included. NO heating costs, as mother nature keeps it a perfect 82-92° F (29-33° C) year-round.
Rancho – 86 sq. ft (8 m2)
BBQ for your guests in the built-in outdoor kitchen (complete with sink and storage cabinets). Sturdily built with three exotic wooden Tigre posts and an Palmex roof, this rancho is sunken down to pool level so you can stay social with your pool-going guests while you grill for them.
