This easygoing sociability continues into the home, where outdoor terraces, open concept living and dining, and diverse sleeping spaces make time inside the home lively and fun. This home is located in Las Catalinas, a car-free beach town surrounded by nature on land and at sea. Just a short walk from the home, you will find two beautiful beaches, 40 kilometers of world class hiking and mountain biking trails, six restaurants, a variety of other shops, and a full schedule of fun events, large and small. Everything you need for a great vacation is within a short walk through a town of extraordinary beauty. This makes for an experience that is lively and sociable, in touch with nature, and radically different than anything else you will find in Costa Rica. This home is on Calle La Ronda, just a short walk from Playa Danta in the heart of Las Catalinas. The beach, the trails, and all that town has to offer are only a few steps away along car-free streets, so kids and parents have the freedom to explore and spend time together. Inside the home, a ground floor courtyard unites the rooms on the first floor in the open air. Location right inside the front door makes this courtyard a naturally social transition space that facilitates moments together when entering or exiting the home. The next level up is an indoor-outdoor social floor that offers an open space with covered terrace, living room, and dining room. This open concept space features several smaller seating areas, creating intimate sociability even when the whole group is together. The home has master bedroom and guest bedroom on the ground floor, guest bedroom on the living floor, and finally a bunk room for six on the top floor. This bunk room is a particular highlight, featuring space for up to six on the top floor and connecting roof terrace. The result is a space that serves as a lookout tower and play room for the younger ones. Casa Pinita is a home with something for everyone to enjoy in a town full of experiences to share. More
