Welcome to Casa La Luna, a lovely two bedroom home on 8 acres in the mountain community of Platanillo! This well maintained home is the perfect mountain getaway for anyone looking to live at a higher altitude, where you will enjoy constant breezes and cooler temperatures, while still having easy access to the towns amenities and only a 20 minute drive to the beaches of Dominical. The artistic touches throughout the home create a welcoming atmosphere, where one feels connected to the natural beauty of Costa Rica.
Through the gated entrance you are welcomed by the blooming bougainvillea over the lattice entry way and garden filled with flowering plants and herbs. Greeted by La Luna, featuring the eye of Horus for well being, protection and healing, you find the living area to the right, offering a lovely multifunctional space, as well as a large storage bodega and owners closet. In the main part of the home you find the kitchen, with beautiful mango wood island and breakfast bar. Down the hall is the full bathroom leading to the primary bedroom. The main bedroom is spacious and comfortable, featuring a hand painted purple orchid Guaria Morada, the national flower of Costa Rica, adorning the wall, as well as a built in closet space. Through the sliding glass door of the kitchen, one accesses the separate studio bedroom. This newly added bedroom is spacious and enjoys a handprinted mural of a Corteza Amarilla tree to follow suit with the artistic touches in the home. The private balcony overlooks the rolling land of the property below, an ideal space for watching the birds and wildlife that pass through the surrounding forest.
Found down a secondary driveway from the home is a plantel which would be perfect for the addition of a second home, or a couple of studio units. Approximately 3 acres of the land is rolling and maintained, with mature fruit trees such as starfruit, banana, plantain, pejibaje, mandarinas, oranges, lemons, mangosteen, mango, water apple, mamochinos and coconuts. Towering Ceiba, mature African Palms and Jacaranda trees are dotted around the land, while the lower 5 acres holds a reforestation section of Amarillon trees. The owner of this property has worked closely with Community Carbon Trees and Jennifer Smith to maintain the reforested land and add fruiting trees for wildlife. There is a creek found at the bottom of the land, which holds a lovely waterfall during the rainy season.
Located only a short distance from the highway, 4×4 is not necessary to access the property and the home is walking distance to local stores and public transport. The city of San Isidro is only a 25 minute drive, beautiful attractions such as Nauyaca and Eco Chontales Waterfalls are close by, and the beaches of Dominical are only a 20 minute drive away.
It is evident that Casa La Luna is a special property, attuned to someone who values the protection of the rainforest and the honoring of nature. The lovely home provides the perfect abode for one to live and enjoy the beauty of Costa Rica, while being a steward of the land.
