Description of the property:

From the main gate a 300m right of way leads to the property that is surrounded by three creeks. High trees and the lush tropical vegetation along these creeks guarantee unspoilt views and total privacy. In addition the property is an unspoilt habitat for all kinds of wildlife including agoutis, kinkajous, armadillos, iguanas, and coatis. Howler monkeys and white-faced monkeys are daily guests.
The huge variety of fruit trees and plants attracts all kinds of tropical birds – more than 40 species have been counted so far – and butterflies. Among the fruit trees are mango, papaya, starfruit, banana, plantain, coconut, water apple, cashew, lemon, orange, avocado and jackfruit. The large garden contains both formal and naturalistic plantings and is equipped with a drip irrigation system.
The property includes an excellent registered well (1,5 hp well pump) that provides 4l of clear water per second (average: 2l/sec) and guarantees an independent water supply even in the dry season.
The brand-new solar system provides 24/7 ecologically friendly electricity. Excess energy is fed into the grid in exchange for energy credit.
