La Casita is the original house on the 2,550 sq. m (2/3 acre) property, acquired on a whim in 1998 by the late Annabella Proudlock, and her husband Peter. She was charmed by the setting, and its beauty and atmosphere is still enchanting.

Life at La Casita is centred on the large 5m x 7m (16' x 23') veranda, with 2 hammocks, sofa, dining table for eight, a day bed, and a soaring thatched cathedral ceiling. The downstairs bedroom has a queen-size bed, while the upstairs has a king and a half bathroom. Both have writing desks, fans and mosquito nets, not that bugs are a major problem.

There is a fully equipped kitchen and the mosaic bathroom is housed in a separate building under a covered walkway, in the Talamanca tradition. Every corner of La Casita contains treasures such as wooden parrots, naive art and fanciful but practical lampshades.

Perfect for writers, painters, families, or a romantic getaway, La Casita is an idyllic spot to appreciate nature, enjoy the surroundings, and relax.

STOP PRESS: After many years of trying, we have finally got ADSL WI-FI that covers the entire property.
