Location: Perez Zeledon, Costa Rica
Nestled in a paradise of tropical gardens, mountains and a rushing river, Cabana Verde is exquisite in detail both inside and out. Located in the Quebradas community, five minutes from San Isidro del General, in the canton of Perez Zeledon, where the climate has been rated one of the best in the world.
Quebradas is one of the most popular areas for expats due to its scenic and pristine mountain surroundings, its proximity to the city and to area beaches, and its altitude, which offers a near perfect climate.
As the automatic gate opens, revealing Cabana Verde’s magnificent grounds with tropical landscape and fauna, you’ll immediately feel the uniqueness of this luxury tropical estate.
The entire private 1.45 acre estate includes a 6,000 sq. ft. villa, which was originally constructed in 1993, but completely remodeled in 2007. There is also a guest house, with high end appliances and marble counter tops, and a small gym with exercise equipment.
Cabana Verde wouldn’t be complete without its Olympic-size swimming pool, featuring an in-water sitting bar area and a custom built oversized Jacuzzi spa overlooking the river, all surrounded by 4,500 sq. ft. of blue tiles that give the entire pool area a classic Mediterranean look.
As you walk past the tropical waterfall, and enter through the large double hand-carved Cristobal-wood doors, you will appreciate the creative style and design used, a combination of natural stone, exotic woods, and glass. The main villa with 24-ft. Cathedral ceilings has two large master bedroom suites with Jacuzzi spa tub & shower, as well as 2 additional bedrooms, each with their own shower.
Cabana Verde also boasts a formal dining room and adjoining tea room, with a fantastic view of the gardens, through large seamless windows, a fully equipped kitchen, as well as a formal living room, with balconies overlooking the pool and the rushing Quebradas river below. In addition there is a media room, complete with large screen Direct TV, DVD and sound system.
A special feature of this luxury villa is the massage room, with its custom-built bamboo massage table, where one can escape and relax, while receiving an incredible massage from a local masseuse.
The property is located at an altitude of around 900 meters (2,953 feet), offering as good of a micro-climate as you'll find. Temperatures during the days are in the low to mid 70's (F.) and at night can dip into the low 60's.
The property is only 5 minutes from San Isidro de El General, the second-largest city outside of the GAM of the central valley (the area that includes San Jose, Alajuela, Heredia, and Cartago). Here you can find anything you need, including great public and private medical care, numerous shopping and dining choices, and even a mall with cinema!
San Isidro has the largest farmer’s market in the region. Expats at the beach find it necessary to make frequent trips to San Isidro for provisions or services they cannot find at the beach. In short, living within minutes of San Isidro is simply more convenient.
If you want to eat, drink, shop, pay prices, immerse in authentic tico culture, and be surrounding by verdant green flora and diverse fauna, then the luxurious Cabana Verde of Quebradas could definitely be the right choice for you.
