Casa Madera, Finca Estrella, Pavones

Cabin -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Pavones, Province of Puntarenas
Finca Estrella (Star Farm) is a 150 acre paradise snuggled in the hills of Pavones with spectacular views of the rainforest, Osa Peninsula and the Gulfo Dulce (Sweet Gulf). Troops of endangered monkeys swing in the trees, sloths are often spotted munching away and scarlet macaws squawk overhead. The stunning beaches are a short drive away.

Casa Madera (Wooden House), Finca Estrella's brand new two bedroomed holiday home, is perched above the 18m swimming pool. The eco-cabina sleeps 5 and comes with a fully equipped kitchen, outdoor shower and has hammocks strung on the large terrace for admiring the stunning views, star gazing or simply wildlife/bird spotting. Come and relax in paradise - perfect for everyone from honeymooners to families.

About the neighbourhood
If you head south down the 'new beach road' past the high rises of Jaco, turning right when you reach Rio Claro de Golfito you will eventually reach Pavones Bay (Bahia Pavon) , the sleepy little untouched region hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the more touristy spots where Finca Estrella and its rental houses are located.
