The open air design blends luxury, tropical hardwoods, a Polynesian style, and dominant ocean views that make the unbelievable, believable.
The views are the heart of La Veranda, and the sights and sounds of nature are its soul. This amazing 5-acre property sits above the Golfo Dulce (Sweet Gulf) and the tropical rainforest in Pavones, The five independent structures are perfectly connected to the gentle tropical slope, with an intimate blend of luxury and nature. Scarlet Macaws soar overhead, toucans hop from tree to tree, sloths laze unobserved, while troops of monkeys roam the periphery, attracted by the diversity of fruit trees. Mangoes, avocados, citrus, bananas, mangosteens, star fruit and water apples populate the grounds
Situated beside a biological corridor on a natural ridge with 300 meters of lowland rainforest. This rainforest ends abruptly on the secluded black sand beaches that define the beautiful Southern Pacific coastline of Costa Rica. La Veranda is surrounded in a primary rainforest in which you can see and hear numerous types of exotic wildlife such as monkeys, sloths, iguanas, birds, and butterflies.
Lulled by the sounds of surf and over 50 species of birds, La Veranda is nirvana for those that love to immerse themselves in nature and be refreshed by ocean breezes. One can enjoy panoramic views of the Pacific to the south, the Osa Peninsula to the west, and to the north, the 40-mile length of the Gulf of Dulce. Clear Costa Rican light magnifies the ever-changing grandeur of the vistas, and in the night you will be amazed by the clarity of your view of a startlingly bright moon or a star-filled sky. In addition to the rainforest, you can observe many different types of flowers, plants, and fruit trees in the professionally landscaped gardens.
La Veranda’s Polynesian style architecture contains over 200 feet of wood decks and covered wooden walkways. The master bedroom suite has a very comfortable king-size bed, large walk-in closet, and spacious bathroom. In addition, there are two large en-suites that have their own private bathroom. Each bedroom holds amazing views of the ocean and rain forests. These views are accented by the surrounding wooden terraces and walkways. Each bedroom has large sliding glass windows, and doors to maximize the views. But there are also curtains and shades to enjoy your own personal privacy.

From the front gate of the property, a quick 5-minute walk will get you to one of the many secluded palm tree-lined black sand beaches. The property is situated less than one mile from the town of Pavones and its famous world-class wave.
There are many other activities around town such as world-class fishing, hiking, biking, stand up paddle-boarding, kayaking, yoga, and much more. Pavones still benefits from being at the “end of the road”. Wildlife on land and sea is thriving and the atmosphere among the visitors and resident Europeans, North Americans and Latin Americans is friendly and laid back. Pavones is one of the last Costa Rican beach destinations not spoiled by major development.
