Property Description
The sights and sounds of wildlife, open-air tropical living and unforgettable views have all been
captured in one special place... Flying Toucans .

Completed in 2005, this luxurious Costa Rican Villa is situated on a picturesque point on the
southern Pacific coast. With almost three acres and lots of surrounding jungle, you have
all the privacy needed to enjoy your home in peace... with the exception of some noisy
visitors. Yes, the Howler monkeys and the toucans can sound off at any time without first
introducing themselves.

Superbly located in Costa Rica's Maritime Zone (within 200 meters of the shore), Flying Toucans is
one of just a few private luxury home rentals in the area that is on the ocean side of the main coastal road. This unique location combines breathtaking views of jungle-clad mountains, palmtree-studded beaches, and the tranquil Pacific ocean with quick and convenient access all year long. If you like beaches, you are in luck as we have an abundance nearby. From your villa, take a short hike down to the point and discover two secluded beaches (one with its own 35' waterfall) or jump in your car and within minutes be exploring miles of footstep-free sand.

The living and dining rooms offer the romance of open-air tropical living, blending the comforts of home with the nearness of wildlife. The living room is a great central location to gather and enjoy all that Flying Toucans has to offer. Plenty of seating for everyone. Don't be surprised if a hummingbird or butterfly cruises through making a cameo appearance. The "formal" dining area, adjoining the living room, accommodates six.

The large fully-equipped kitchen, with its' beautiful custom cabinetry, and casual eating area for up to six is integrated with the living room and the views beyond. Whip up a smoothie or a six course meal...your choice. There is a half bath downstairs as well as a laundry room with full-sized washer and dryer.

Once in, you'll never want to get out of the infinity-edge pool. Within steps of the villa, it blends into the dazzling coastline and the popular Uvita "Whale's Tail", a unique place to walk and explore. It overlooks Ballena (which means "whale") National Marine Park so keep your eyes open for Humpback whales and Bottle-nosed dolphins.

Two well-furnished master suites are located upstairs. Each of the suites incorporates the use of precious hardwoods for the doors and vaulted ceilings. Relax in the comfort of a/c or open the windows and let the ocean breezes in. Too comfortable to get out of bed? Fine, enjoy the views from your pillow... now if you could just get someone to bring you breakfast!

Spacious bathrooms feature tumbled Columbian limestone showers and an openness that continues to let the outdoors in while providing all the privacy needed. (It is not unusual to have toucans or monkeys just a stone's throw away while you are in the shower.)

You will love taking advantage of the large terrace upstairs. It's perfect for wildlife viewing,
whale watching, stargazing, photograghy, sunrises and sunsets, or just dozing off in the
comfy hammock. Surrounding the villa are exotic heliconias, a variety of fragrant gingers,
exotic palms, birds-of-paradise, cola de lion, etc... not only for your enjoyment but to
attract our fine feathered friends.

Hope to see you here soon. Flying Toucans ... it's unforgettable!
