I (Vicki Skinner - aka "THE Sarong Goddess") created this blog in 2007 to share DETAILED Finds•Lists•Info•Events•Experiences to help bring more EASE to people living in, visiting or thinking of moving to Costa Rica since DETAILS are NOT easy to find!
I’m NOT an expert (an "expert" 2 ME knows 101%-NOT me). I believe in sharin info•helping where I can! And with over 2,200 entries, so some things might be out of date, so if you find old info PLEASE help each other by getting the updated info & sharing it with me to revise. At least you have some basic info to get you started.
Better yet - do you have extra time on your hands & looking for a volunteer project? Since this blog is a labor of love & RARELY does anyone share a donation (even though MANY have said how much it's helped them), I could REALLY use help updating info. Spanish speakers ESPECIALLY welcome since my VicLish can be somewhat limited at times!!

Has my blog helped in any way? Helped find something•brought more EASE? More exposure or business?
I welcome you to show YOUR appreciation for my efforts!
(see below other ways to show your appreciation)
The easiest way is with PAYPAL - Attn: LivingLifeInCostaRica@gmail.com

Spectacular 6 Bedroom Executive View Home for SALE in Escazu



This SPECTACULAR 6-Bedroom (4-bedrooms up and a full 2-bedroom apartment below), modern, VERY Upscale, Executive, Spanish Colonial-style home has INCREDIBLE panoramic views of the Central Valley below off the HUGE Living room (you MUST come back and see it at night!!  It looks like gold dust below).
If you were ever looking for the "WOW! FACTOR"  in a home - LOOK NO MORE!!!  This home has IT!!
Look at the view of the Central Valley below from every window in the Living/Dining Room!!  Doesn't it look like sparkling GOLD DUST?
You'll be the envy of ALL your friends! YOUR home will be where people want to be for high fireworks seasons like Christmas and New Years Eve and special events at the new stadium!!!
(you MUST come see the view at night!!)

BIG (3-1/2 stories) and BRIGHT (LOTS of windows throughout) is what this home is about!!!  The AIRFLOW in this home is also great!!  No need for an air-conditioner or even fans in most rooms!!!

I feel one of THE MOST AMAZING things about this house are the VIEWS!!!  Just look at them in these pictures!!  All rooms have some sort of view - most of the lights from the Central Valley below - or the nearby mountains!  
Day or Night - the view is SPECTACULAR!!  
The last tenants actually turned the Living•Dining space into their internet based businesses office for 4 people and used the Full 2-bedroom Apartment below as their personal living space.
(NOTE: the curtains in the Living Room and Kitchen are not included - but are available for $400 for all.  
The satellite dishes do not come with the house though they may still be available for sale/take over the contract [with LOTS of U.S. Sports channels] from the previous tenant)

This home is PERFECT for a large or extended family, those having lots of guests, or for someone having their business/workspace out of their home!

Another WOW room!!  This spacious Master Suite has views of BOTH the tranquil green mountains AND the city light below!!  PLUS it has 2 walls of windows so incredible air-flow and HIGH ceilings (plus there's a ceiling fan!).

Wouldn’t your life be easier if you worked from home?  You’d have more time to ENJOY the pleasures of life!!!   This house has a few areas that make it perfect!!  The last tenants took over the massive Living/Dining area for their Office. OR - the Full 2-bedroom Apartment below that opens onto a nice Patio and the yard could be a totally separate workspace with Kitchen/Livingroom!!  Don’t need a live-in housekeeper?  The detached Maid’s Room with bathroom off the carport might work for a small office.  Or at the bottom is a totally private “basement” with a nice size window that brings plenty of light in! 

Does your company have out of town guests?  Why spend the big $150-$250 a night (plus expensive/mediocre hotel food and transportation) to put them in a hotel – away from you - when they could have all the conveniences and you nearby?
Room #2 also has 2 walls of Windows with amazing air flow and take your breath away views!!!

This home is located on the end of the cul-de-sac making it a perfect safe space for children playing!  Have grown kids that would like to be living with you but prefer some privacy – the 2-bedroom apartment is perfect for them!  Have a teen that wants lots more privacy – the room at the bottom gives them that. The property has a Gate around it.
Here's your GOURMET KITCHEN!!  
Everything was thought of here!  You have a wall of beautiful cabinets, a island for eating, working and lots of cupboards for storage (and the shelves even pull out!!) plus this is where the trash receptacle is discretely hidden!).  There are plenty of granite counter tops giving you all the space you could need, plenty of outlets, bright, a big picture window looks out onto the beautiful green mountains - making doing dishes more enjoyable!  There's space for you to add a dishwasher.  Plus you have a nice large deep double sink and a Water Filtration system (your buy the filters).  A kitchen to move about freely - or have others join in helping you!  The kitchen opens onto the Living/Dining Room!!!

Throughout this large Custom Built Home you’ll see the consciousness put into it (refreshing as it's so rare in Costa Rica)!  No attention to detail was spared in building this !  I haven’t seen as many details in places in Costa Rica!  Everything from High-end Spanish porcelain floors throughout, Beautiful custom built wood cabinetry,
Beautiful wood CLOSETS with built-in Drawers!  

KITCHENS:  The 2 Kitchens have plenty beautiful green/gray/black tone 
Granite Kitchen Counter Tops - 
possibly more cupboard and drawer space and large deep double sinks.  

BATHROOMS:  Each Bathroom has equal DOUBLE SINKS and plenty of Counter Space (plus there's a little shelf at the bottom of the mirror!), a big mirror, plenty of light, as well as Rain shower heads (this is the sink in the Master Bathroom.  See the gold colored faucets?  They even swivel to the position YOU need them in at that time!)
How's this for "Touches"???!!!  This is a little window cut out of the glass (which is beautifully custom sandblasted) so you can just reach in and turn the water on and test it - vs getting in and being in the middle of cold or hot water!!!

There are more than enough grounded electrical outlets throughout the house (and even many outside!) plus they were installed consciously so you can even have 2 larger power sources/cords next to each other!

All rooms have recessed lighting (which can add to the ambiance if you want to put dimmer switches in) and a ceiling light, and the top floor spaces all have Vaulted ceilings.   

Even (even in many closets) plus all Bedrooms are wired for Ethernet hard cable connection, cable tv and phone – and more!  

The owners live nearby and are VERY conscious about fixing things!

There’s even a BASEMENT (or use it as an Office, Kids Playroom, Craft Room, adult "child's" more private room, or your Hideout space.  It even has a big window) and LOTS more!

All of these services are available for you to just turn on (and pay for yourself).  Internet is via Amnet or a Kolbi Datacard (like WiFi for individual Laptops).
There will be an additional Utility Deposit if you would like to have the phone turned on (phone bills often don't come for a couple months - long after previous tenants have left), there will be an additional deposit.  You will also only have access to making calls WITHIN Costa Rica (Skype and MagicJack can give you easy and way cheaper international calls!)

(please tell them that Vicki Connected you)

The Family • TV Room in the middle of all the bedrooms is a great way to bring everyone together! 
Look at those Vaulted Ceilings with great lighting plus 2 windows bringing in lots of natural light & breeze!

The Master Suite in the 2-bedroom Apartment is where I stayed!  Again - 2 walls of windows/doors gives for plenty of light and great air-flow!  What a beautiful space with a nice lawn for the kids and pets to play in, a beautiful long covered patio (which even has plenty of electrical outlets out here AND a cable tv outlet!).
Won't your big barbeque would be perfect here??!!   And there's plenty of space for Lawn Parties or a Playground!

The Living • Dining • Kitchen Space in the 2-bedroom Apartment is spacious and gives you an open feel!  Beyond the first open door is the Laundry Room & through that is the Hot Water Tank and Extra Water Tank!  
To the right - the glass door - is the Entrance from inside the house.  
Next is a Storage area.

Isn't this house MAGESTIC against the blue sky??!  That's Bismar your personal Guard, Gardner, Helper and sometimes Fix-it guy!  The former tenants really loved him (fyi - the former tenants ONLY moved because their time was up in Costa Rica)

The back side of the house - you can see how HUGE it is and ALL the windows!
There's also a side entrance to the bottom apartment from it's own private open Parking Space (for 2 cars depending on their size) - BUT, the doors only lock from inside so for security sake, people will want to enter from inside.
