The SpaceThis estate is ideal for large families, girlfriend getaways, company retreats, etc... This is a very spacious estate with lots of privacy. While this listing doesn't allow us a "drop down" option for this, several of the bunk beds are "triples" meaning there are 3 beds instead of 2. The property can accommodate 31 guests on their own beds, making it ideal for large groups, families, girlfriend getaways, etc. The bunk beds are unusual in that they have curtains around them (as in train travel), with shelves, staircases, etc. Small stores are less than a mile, larger grocery stores are located about 15 minutes away in Paraiso, while mega style stores like Walmart are located about 20 minutes away in Cartago, which you pass on the way from the airport to the property. Here is a 2 minute video (URL HIDDEN) Guest AccessThere is TV with a DVD player, and hook up for iPod stereo music. Local Costa Rican art is on display throughout the home and within the gardens. Note the hand carved columns at the gazebo, the benches, the stone carvings, etc. The home is handsomely and solidly built with hardwoods, glass brick, tile, concrete and stucco. The blue exterior paint on the lower portion of the house is one of the famous traditional ways of building a Costa Rican homes.
