Spyglass House offers a spectacular view of the captivating charcoal powder and white sands of Ocotal Beach. A 10 minute walk to the ocean or just step into your own private secluded infinity pool, where bathing suits are not required.

Out on the deck you'll see the fishing boats or whales with your morning coffee.

No sharing your space as you do with others in this price range. The entire house is yours!

30 mins from Liberia airport.

The space
Down the palm lined driveway as you pass through the gated entrance, there is a rock garden and more palm trees.

Enter the main house through the beaded doorway directly into the living area, where the warm ocean breezes blow through. The deck overlooks Ocotal Bay and you can see clear cross to Roca Bruha, where there is some of the best surfing in Central America. You may also spot the whales coming in the bay to feed.

If you are into indoor views, there is a giant plasma screen TV for your entertainment and a Firestick to access your Netflix account.

This house is perfect for a family or 2 couples. Bedrooms at each end, with king size beds in both. The west wing provides an office desk and access to the deck. You may well be visited by the howler mono's (monkeys).

There is an outdoor kitchen with running water and propane BBQ next to the patio and infinity pool. Dip your feet in while waiting to turn the fresh fish on the BBQ.

The indoor kitchen and eating area look out to the ocean where you take in each evenings spectacular sunsets.

Each room has its own air conditioning unit, for your individual comfort.

Because you drive down an incline to the house, you enjoy the morning sun, without it beating down till midday.

When you compare this to other listings in the area, no sharing, COMPLETE PRIVACY, making this the best value in Ocotal, Coco and Hermosa beaches.

So private that Nicolas & Maria decided they would get married here!

Guest access
The entire house and property is for your use while staying here.

If you require help or insights I will be 2 minutes away and accessible by email, so you can enjoy your privacy.

Other things to note
You can take tours from here on a catamaran to secluded beaches, go with certified Scuba divers or sport fishing and over to Diamante to zip line.

The snorkeling in the bay is outstanding. I have seen rays and schools of fish 10' deep and 3 football fields long.

Location

Ocotal Beach, Costa Rica, Costa Rica

Ocotal Beach and the gated community we live in is 10 minutes down the Gold Coast from Coco Beach, a hopping town, but even more so during the high season.

There is great and affordable food stores, bakeries and financial institutions. However, as you drive beyond Coco to Ocotal, you enter your own little bit of heaven. As you come through the gates you can see the ocean, just minutes away. Take a u-turn up the hill and you climb, and climb and climb, until you are almost at the top and you are at your house.

I oversaw construction and paid attention to the details, which is why I have the Million Dollar view! Walk around the total Ocotal Beach estate 3km takes about an hour to soak in all of the views, while getting in a workout.

I head down to the beach in the afternoon for a swim and a run.

Just a 30-minute drive from the Liberia International Airport (LIR). There are direct flights from several Canadian cities.

We are close to the Congo Trail for "in the trees" zip lining, 4 wheeling and another spectacular beach. Or try the craziest and highest zip line, like jumping off a mountain, at Diamante Eco Park.

Head north and you can enjoy the 4 Seasons Hotel 18 hole golf course. I can recommend a pro to join if you like.

Do not misconstrue the rainy season at Ocotal Beach. For 98% of the year what you see on weather sites only means that you have blazing sun through the early afternoon and it often comes back before the sun sets. You will actually appreciate the break from the sun.

May to September you do not have to contend with the huge influx of winter tourists, so you can call the place your own! I had one tenant in 2014 from August to December and they had only 3 days where the sun did not come out at all. Since then only 1 day through August 2016 where you did not see the sun for the entire day! We are in our own little eco zone for weather.

As I was approaching retirement, I decided that Ocotal was a little piece of heaven, where I intended to spend the rest of my life. As a building contractor myself I worked with the designer on the location and optimal view of the ocean for both the main house and the guest house over the much needed carport. I love gardening, as you can see from the pictures of the house. I completed the house in 2003 and have been living in the guest house with the sliding doors open to hear the soothing ocean at night. I scooter into town in the morning to the Panaderia (bakery) to grab a coffee and people watch. In the afternoon I tend to my gardens
