PRIVATE WITH LUSH SURROUNDINGS. Casita Vivace is located on the outskirts of San Ramón in the quaint area of Magallanes, a mix of Tico and expat residents. Hacienda Vivace and the Casita Vivace sit at the end of a country lane on 5 private acres of lush gardens and semi-tropical landscape, rolling mountains and coffee fields, overlooking the Pacific Ocean’s Bay of Nicoya. The views are stunning. The Hacienda is a spectacular, newly completed contemporary Spanish main home with the stand-alone Casita Vivace rental nearby on the property. The area is quiet, safe and private, yet 5 minutes to downtown San Ramon.
Casita Vivace is a separate 2-story, custom-designed house with 2000 square feet, plus front and rear patios and second story balcony, all with fabulous views. The impressive custom iron work surrounds the balcony and interior loft. Custom woodwork is throughout the ground floor and master queen bedroom, loft area with family room plus queen bed and sofa bed, bath with both outdoor and indoor showers, kitchen, dining/living room, and laundry. The spacious gourmet kitchen is a delight to anyone who enjoys cooking. The bathroom is unique with stonework bathtub and shower, and a second beautiful outdoor shower. The house is fully furnished inside and out, and all utilities, reliable high-speed internet, and private parking are included. A hearty breakfast can be served at the main Hacienda at an additional cost, with fresh local fruit and juices, homemade pastry, granola and local coffee, followed by a main breakfast dish.
STUNNING VIEWS AND WORKING COFFEE PLANTATION. The property has spectacular views all around. At 3700 feet and a constant temperature in the mid-70’s, the Hacienda and Casita Vivace overlook the Pacific Ocean and the Bay of Nicoya with its many islands. Visitors watch the cruise ships enter the port of Puntarenas, and enjoy phenomenal sunsets and dazzling evening lights. The surrounding mountains display lush semi-tropical vegetation. The working coffee plantation is flocked with the dramatic white coffee flowers in May and the cherry red coffee berries in November through January. The Hacienda gardens are tenderly cared for by the owners and provide an ambiance of beauty and tranquility.
PERFECT DRIVING DISTANCE TO COSTA RICA SITES. The Hacienda is 45 minutes from the San Jose International Airport and central driving distance to the most memorable experiences of Costa Rica. Within 90 minutes are attractions such as Poas Volcano, La Paz Waterfalls and Gardens, La Fortuna hot springs, Lake Arenal, Carrera National Rainforest, Sarchi, Puntarenas, Zip-Lining, Butterfly Farms, Animal Rescue Centers, Manual Antonio Biological Reserve, and much more. The nearest beach is just a 30 minute drive away and part of a national rainforest, where capuchin monkeys come down from the trees to join you for lunch. We can help you with arrangements to ensure you experience the best of Costa Rica.
QUAINT VILLAGE OF SAN RAMON. The Hacienda is 5 minutes by car from San Ramon, a ‘muy tranquilo’ provincial town of 20,000 that welcomes travelers with a graceful sense of pride and slow pace of life. Known as the City of Presidents and Poets, San Ramon has been home to four Presidents and many of the literary leaders of Costa Rica. The town itself offers it all — from restaurants and cafes, to museums and art studios, a 3-cinema theater, supermarkets and shops, a major hospital and the University of Cost Rica.
PRIVATE CHEF AND COOKING LESSONS. If you are interested in experiencing local cuisine, you can take advantage of the Hacienda’s private chef. Whether you are looking for typical Tico fare or a gourmet dinner, the Hacienda’s experienced chef comes highly recommended. The Hacienda also offers cooking classes for Costa Rican and other cuisines.
