Seamless indoor-outdoor living is the theme of the property. Along one side of the pool is the main terrace with lots of single and double sun loungers for relaxing in comfort. At one end of the terrace there is an outdoor couch seating area under a double height pergola, with a big fan to keep you cool. At the other end of the terrace there is a BBQ with a food preparation area.
The main open plan living/dining/kitchen area has glass sliding doors that can be opened all the way back to create a feeling of indoor-outdoor space to the terrace on one side and to the back garden on the other. The kitchen has black granite countertops and is fully-equipped with stainless steel appliances, as well as a wine fridge and a teppanyaki plate. The dining table is made locally from a beautifulpiece of Guanacaste wood. The sitting area has two large couches and a flat screen TV. There is a further separate TV/movie room with a large couch. Both living areas have state-of-the-art TV and media systems. There is Wifi throughout the house.
All five bedrooms are upstairs and lead off beautiful galleries which look out over the central courtyard and pool.
