Beautiful Views from Casa Lapas

We recently improved the pool area of Casa Lapas (check out more photos and information here) enhancing the Casa lapa costa rica villa sunsetexperience of our owners and guests here.

We have several homes available for rent, but Casa Lapas is our largest and has ocean view lots. It’s beauty and views has enticed us to host weddings, parties and events here.

The private outdoor shower has incredible views of the Pacific Ocean, Cano Island and the mountains with their ever changing clounds and shadows.

The deck provides private sun bathing for our guests at Casa Lapas

Casa Lapas is completely private and has its own swimming pool, outdoor Jacuzzi, deck and outdoor shower.

The Quebrada Walk in Las Villas de San Buenas

Las Villas de San Buenas has two quebradas that cut through the development. Since all waterways in Costa Rica are open to the public any of our residents are free to enter into them from their lot or from the bridge that crosses it. 

The first obvious question, is “What is a quebrada?” 

Answer: A quebrada is a creek

I’ll be posting more photos in the next couple of days from my walk but I thought you would all enjoy this one. Atlas held the world on his shoulders – this tree is heavy enough. 🙂

The quebradas have some amazing wildlife and plant life. If you want a perfect blend of Costa Rica nature and easy access to civilized life, please be sure to consider Las Villas de San BuenasImage

Que tengas un buen dia! (have a great day!)

Bienvenidos a Pepe

Costa Rica dog

Pepe is my dog here.

As some of you know my last dog past away a couple of months ago. In the meantime I’ve visited one of the animal rescue centers in San Isidro del General several times and I finally decided on my new dog. Please welcome “Pepe” to Las Villas de San Buenas.

When you come to visit you will see him by my side.

We’re also going to finish construction on our next house in the next four weeks – I’ll upload more photos later this week. If you’re interested in renting it out for Xmas, New Year’s or any other time please let me know.

Pura vida!

Update on our newest home

Our newest home in Las Villas de San Buenas is in the last 60 days of construction. This week we will be painting the interior walls. What do you think of the colors we’ve chosen?

 

External construction is almost complete.

Costa Rica Pejibayes

There is a great fruit stand near the entrance to San Buenaventura, at KM 187 from the Costanera Highway. It is where all sorts of great fruit that is grown in the nearby region. When you buy a villa in the area you will be able to get all kinds of locally grown food. We envision having a local farmers market weekly on the property in the not to distant future. We believe sustainability comes from working together and want to work with local farmers in trading for things they grow with things we grow as well as eating much of what we grow in the community.

The fruit pictured below is a bunch of pejibayes. Pejibayes are boiled and then eaten. They are starchy and similar to a potato. Ticos eat them with mayonnaise flavoured with lemon or plain mayonnaise. When they come into season they are at stands everywhere. You will even see them sold in local sodas ready to eat.

There is a town called Pejibaye not too far from Las Villas De San Buenas where they grow a lot of Pejibayes and ship them around the local region. The homes at Las Villas will be surrounded by fruit trees and other edible landscapes and ornamentals chosen by each individual owner. Park areas will also have various fruit trees and Pejibayes will most likely be one of the fruits grown on the property.

Costa Rica Earthquake – felt here but no problems

Yesterday a 7.6 earthquake shook northern Costa Rica (Guanacaste), about a 7 hour drive from Las Villas de San Buenas. Although the earthquake was felt here in San Buenaventura there was no damage to any structures.

Everything is moving forward as planned here at Las Villas de San Buenas. Pura Vida!!

Here’s a link to an article explaining that strict building codes in Costa Rica are one reason why there was such little damage.
