A jewel in the crown of Costa Rica that is Monteverde. Hummingbird Heights is a one in a million property. Nestled atop a point that proudly juts out over a 400 foot deep valley, its surroundings include incredible views featuring a 270 degree, wrap-around drop-off. One of the most impressive features of the property is the waterfall flowing down the left side of it, providing a constant, soothing and inspiring soundtrack to your stay as the beautiful sound is easily heard throughout. Situated just minutes outside of town in one of Costa Rica's famous dairy farming areas, it is surrounded on all sides by pastures on steeply soaring mountains and a deep river valley featuring a Tree of Life accessible via a 20 minute trail. There are orange, banana, mango and other fruit trees on the prope...A jewel in the crown of Costa Rica that is Monteverde. Hummingbird Heights is a one in a million property. Nestled atop a point that proudly juts out over a 400 foot deep valley, its surroundings include incredible views featuring a 270 degree, wrap-around drop-off. One of the most impressive features of the property is the waterfall flowing down the left side of it, providing a constant, soothing and inspiring soundtrack to your stay as the beautiful sound is easily heard throughout. Situated just minutes outside of town in one of Costa Rica's famous dairy farming areas, it is surrounded on all sides by pastures on steeply soaring mountains and a deep river valley featuring a Tree of Life accessible via a 20 minute trail. There are orange, banana, mango and other fruit trees on the property as well as innumerable orchids and other rare flowers. There are countless birds including the Hummingbirds, wild turkeys, countless parrots and parakeets and of course toucans and oropendulas. The entire house has been thoroughly and completely renovated. There are 4 bedrooms and two full bathrooms with beds for up to 14 people. The kitchen was completely removed, redesigned and rebuilt from the ground up with proper layouts and enthusiastic chefs in mind. Comfortable seating and a handmade, cedar dining set designed by us and built from local wood make the most of a combined dining/living room and there are high speed WiFi and satellite TV throughout. One of the property's most impressive features however, is the solarium. Formally a fenced-in storage area, it has been glassed in and converted to an amazing, peaceful and truly inspirational hangout. Perfect for yoga, reading, relaxing, cards or boardgames or just sitting and staring at the wonderful views that drop off and open out over the valley right at your feet! (There's even a pass-through window from the kitchen... again for those of us who love to cook! ;-) The renovation has been am 8 month labour of love. We are super thrilled to offer this wonderful property to you, and we know that you will love it just as much as we do. See you soon, Pura Vida! :-)More
