The Fishack is a three-story home, situated on the edge of the Puerto Jimenez harbor and while less than a one kilometer walk away from the center of town, it is separated from the Puerto Jimenez center by the mangrove estuary of Quebrada Cacao, which runs through town. As such, despite the proximity to town, from the third floor pool deck the only thing visible on the western horizon are the tops of the mangroves bounding the swamp; to the east, Golfo Dulce presents itself!

Description

The Fishack is a three-story home, situated on the edge of the Puerto Jimenez harbor and while less than a one kilometer walk away from the center of town, it is separated from the Puerto Jimenez center by the mangrove estuary of Quebrada Cacao, which runs through town. As such, despite the proximity to town, from the third floor pool deck the only thing visible on the western horizon are the tops of the mangroves bounding the swamp; to the east, Golfo Dulce presents itself!

The home is separated from the harborfront road by a tangle of tropical ornamental vegetation and a gated stone fence. The back of the property overlooks the mangrove swamp and from the balconies, caymans and crocodiles can frequently be observed sunning themselves in the shallows. A profusion of water birds call the estuary home as well as a flock of thousands of orange-cheeked parrots!

The second floor main living space is bounded by a verandah that wraps around the entire home for lounging areas with easy chairs. The third floor is the party deck and includes a roof top pool, living room set, dining table, swim up bar, stereo system, and both roofed and open air terraces, all bounded with a columned handrail and sporting superlative 360 degree views of the harbor and Golfo Dulce and the mangrove estuary behind the home. Wireless broadband Internet is provided.

Because the Fishack is a short walk or taxi ride from the center of Puerto Jimenez, the air strip, grocery stores, and restaurants, a rental car is not necessary, although it is always nice to have at one's disposal, for exploration of the Osa Peninsula's vast wealth of natural splendor.

The watchman lives on the property and provides 24-hour security. Catering is available on request
