Casa Estrella - Star House
4180m2 property & 185m2 House
This house was built with much love by Fabrice in January 2013 to host his family, who at the time were living in New York, Eva and Omram (at the time 6 month old).
He built it with a team of 9 persons, all locals, during 4 months in a collaborative and inclusive effort translating his vision into reality.
The main purpose of the house, at the time was a healing retreat centre, to host up to 10 people.
With time, though, and having another baby boy, Fabrice and Eva realised that while their vision for a retreat house in the jungle is great and is manifesting as forseen, the lack of other families with kids for their daily life was challenging for the boys who were seeking interaction with other kids and not only adults.
Omram started school last month and is enjoying it very much and the family is finding it hard to find a balance between being united in the retreat house or in their house next to the school.
Hence the decision to sell the house.
The house is perfect for a family, group of friends, or just one person who would like to retreat, rest and disconnect to reconnect with nature and their own.
It can host up to 10 people, it has 3 separate bedrooms (one master bedroom with bathtub, shower, double sinks and 2 guest room with a shared bathroom) and an elevated office, healing room, which could be divided into two rooms.
The House is 2000 square feet and the Land 5000 square yard

Pristine water coming from the mountain, 2 natural pools with 2 rivers that join on property; there is another natural pool in the river by the rock bridge , a very colorful tropical flower and vegetable garden as well as many fruit trees.
