PRIVATE WITH LUSH SURROUNDINGS. Hacienda Vivace and this rental, Vista Vivace, are located on the outskirts of San Ramón in the quaint and secure area called Magallanes, a mix of Costa Rican and expat residents. It sits at the end of a private, quiet country lane on 5 private acres of lush gardens and semi-tropical landscape, rolling mountains and coffee fields, overlooking the Pacific Ocean's Bay of Nicoya. The Hacienda is a spectacular, newly completed contemporary Spanish main home with the Vista Vivace apartment at its side.
This NEW, beautiful and spacious, luxury 2-story apartment has a view from every room. It is custom-designed with 1500 square feet that includes second story patio, living room, dining room, full kitchen, and ground floor master queen bedroom, full bathroom, laundry and covered car port. The house is fully furnished inside and outside and all utilities, high-speed 6G internet, and covered private parking are included. Breakfast is offered upon request at an additional cost. Please reference the detailed reviews for Vista Vivace's sister property, Casita Vivace VRBO #991709, to get an idea of the beauty, quality, and management style of the Hacienda's rental properties.
STUNNING VIEWS, WORKING COFFEE PLANTATION, PERFECT CENTRAL LOCATION. The Pacific Highlands where we live is the heartland of Costa Rica with truly awe-inspiring coastal and mountain views, stunning sunsets, year-around weather in the seventies, historic culture, and wonderfully warm people. And San Ramón is the ideal central location to easily go to the airport, beaches, volcanoes, rainforests, and hot springs as well as cultural attractions like San Jose's Little Theater Group and the infamous Teatro Nacional.
Vista Vivace will give you the chance to experience the real Costa Rica and ‘Pura Vida’ lifestyle, while enjoying the modern luxuries of a beautiful North American style home. We're located at the end of a private country lane on a working plantation that overlooks the Bay of Nicoya. You can bask in the early morning sunshine with your coffee or enjoy evening cocktails and sunset right from your private patio.
Pick up fresh fruit and vegetables at the weekly outdoor market in historic San Ramon just 5 minutes away, drive to one of the local waterfalls and splash in the pools, visit an orchid garden or sugar cane factory, or launch a day of site seeing to volcanoes, the beaches, zoo, animal rescue center, one of many hot springs, canopy tour, or an evening at Teatro Nacional for symphony or ballet.
PERFECT DRIVING DISTANCE TO COSTA RICA SITES. The Hacienda is 45 minutes from the San Jose International Airport and central driving distance to the most memorable experiences of Costa Rica. Within 90 minutes are attractions such as Poas Volcano, La Paz Waterfalls and Gardens, La Fortuna hot springs, Lake Arenal, Carrera National Rainforest, Sarchi, Puntarenas, Zip-Lining, Butterfly Farms, Animal Rescue Centers, Manual Antonio Biological Reserve, and much more. The nearest beach is just a 30 minute drive away and part of a national rainforest, where capuchin monkeys come down from the trees to join you for lunch. We can help you with arrangements to ensure you experience the best of Costa Rica.
QUAINT VILLAGE OF SAN RAMON. The Hacienda is 5 minutes by car from San Ramon, a 'muy tranquilo' provincial town of 20,000 that welcomes travelers with a graceful sense of pride and slow pace of life. Known as the City of Presidents and Poets, San Ramon has been home to four Presidents and many of the literary leaders of Costa Rica. The town itself offers it all -- from restaurants and cafes, to museums and art studios, a 3-cinema theater, supermarkets and shops, a major hospital and the University of Cost Rica.
A HEARTY BREAKFAST TO START YOUR DAY. Breakfast can be served at an additional cost, with fresh local fruit, homemade pastry, granola and local coffee, followed by a main breakfast dish.
