This unique Balinese-style estate, an oasis away from the noise and bustle of tourism, lies at an elevation of 1600m (5300 ft) just above Boquete on the eastern slopes of Volcán Barú, overlooking the mountain hills down to the Pacific Ocean.
The house has been built with high-quality materials throughout, including a variety of different tropical hardwoods. Due to its unusual layout it can be used as a perfect home to live in; as a family home where the parents, in-laws and/or children have their own pod, or, as a small bed and breakfast.
The main 900 sq.ft (83.6 m2) pod consists of a beautiful large open plan kitchen, dining and living room, all looking out through floor-to-ceiling picture windows framing the incredible view.
The neighbouring 489 sq.ft (45.5 m2) pod is the master bedroom with en-suite shower and a huge walk-in closet. Imagine showering while enjoying the magnificent panorama over the mountains all the way down to the Gulf of Chiriqui.
The third 489 sq.ft (45.5 m2) pod on the opposite side of the main pod is a mirror image of the master bedroom, but with sliding doors opening onto the large covered entertainment terrace. This pod, while originally built as a master bedroom with shower and walk-in closet, is currently being used as an office and library.
The recently added fourth pod is a stand-alone 681 sq,ft (63.3 m2) casita, with a large en-suite bedroom, fully equipped kitchen and an airy dining and living room, built in the same style as the original 3 pods. The casita has arguably the best panoramic view of the entire property, sweeping from the Continental Divide down to the islands in the Gulf of Chiriqui.
A large double carport, incorporating separate workshop and tool storage rooms, provides ample covered parking for two cars. There is sufficient outside parking for at least two further cars.
The fully fenced garden is designed to provide both pleasure and attract the abundant birdlife the Chiriquí Highlands are so famous for. The beautiful palm fringed flower gardens around the homestead look out over the fruit-tree orchards where lemons and oranges, as well as avocado trees from Costa Rica grow in the rich black soil. A small coffee plantation growing amongst mature indigenous trees below the main bedroom window provides privacy in addition to the fantastic jasmine-citrus aroma during the flowering season.
