Ocean inspired top floor apartment surrounded by Tropical Landscape in a rural and safe neighborhood​. Easy access to El Rodeo & Peace University, with bus station, supermarket and restaurants (soda) across the street. Both the bedroom and living room are beautifully​ appointed to the East (wake up with the sunrise!), and overlook the lush green of Brasil. Great for birdwatching (toucans & parrots) from the balcony!

The space
I am temporarily working in a different country (with my dog!) and therefor am renting my entire apartment (but please consult the reviews for my private room announcement). The apartment is throughout decorated with unique items that resemble my passion (and profession) for ocean conservation and endangered species, with some related books to consult from. In the closet of the bedroom there is a small book-exchange, take one - leave one!

The kitchen is fully equipped with all appliances (toaster, fridge, cooking ware, cutlery, etc.) and a washing-dryer combo. The condominium hosts a 23m long lap and tanning pool, along with a well-equipped gym for the guest's use. The apartment is on the 5th and top floor of a well-maintained Condominium and boasts​ incredible views on the surrounding, lush green neighborhood​, especially on the large balcony. There is fantastic bird-watching (i.e. the keel-billed Toucan!) just from the balcony or in the property's​ gardens, with guides on birds, reptiles and marine life readily to consult.

Where you’ll be

Alajuela, San José, Costa Rica

Brasil de Mora is a tranquil neighborhood just before Cuidad Colon and basically composed of green hills with large mansions. Just in front is a small store ("pulpería"), which has almost everything you'd expect from a supermarket. Two typical Costa Rican restaurants ("sodas") are just steps away and further down the street (about 200m) there is a bakery and greengrocer.

Despite its quick access to Highway 27 (only 5min by car), which brings you in less than an hour to the Central Pacific Ocean (Jaco, Playa Hermosa, Carara National Park) and in about 35 minutes to San Jose Center, it is surrounded by lush tropical forests boasting an incredible biodiversity, especially of birds. Brasil de Mora and Cuidad Colon are characterized by a transitional climate, ranging from Tropical Rain Forest to Pre-Mountain Forests, that means that it is much warmer than San Jose, and less rainy than the Pacific, almost always maintaining a pleasant breeze. Toucans, parrots, parakeets, egrets, motmots, cuckoos, and many species of hummingbirds are easily observed from and around the building.
