A guest favorite for many reasons...but mainly because of its close proximity to the car park. This beautiful two-story cabina is the first rental nestled on the Finca Bellavista red trail making it a 10 - 15 min hike at most. Features include a king-sized bedroom with 360-degree views, kitchenette, hot water shower, and balcony. Given the surrounding young forest, this home shares it space with local favorite animals such as Coatis, Toucans and the occasional sloth. Enjoy countless hours of birdwatching and reading from the generously sized front balcony. An occasional 3g connection is present at this home.
The home offers a private main bedroom with a king sized bed.
Additional sleeping space with queen size futon can be found in the living space.
The home does NOT have electricity and NO refrigeration.
The property is a 10 min - 15 min walk from basecamp. This is a pedestrian community only - please pack light.
Casa Perezosa is situated on the red trail (FBV's internal road). The road is made up of loose rock - please remember boots.
The home has 1.5 bathrooms with shower and toilet downstairs and toilet upstairs - it has hot water.
The kitchen has a gas stovetop with oven.
Given Casa Perezosa's proximity to the car park, you should be able to carry a cooler box 😉.
MEET AND GREET
There is no office on the property or onsite staff. The community is made up of private home owners, residents, work exchange applicants and guests.
There is also no phone signal coming up the road to Finca Bellavista or at the car park so a time to meet with a member of the community needs to be prearranged. Once a booking is confirmed, you will be able to share your arrival day through the Fusion Forum where a member of the community will make themselves available to meet you.
Once you have been introduced to an available community member, you will be able to update them directly should your travel day or arrival time change. Once onsite, they will escort you to my home and ensure everything is operational and comfortable before leaving you to enjoy Perezosa.
You are welcome to sign up to the Fusion Forum before making a booking, it's free to do so and you can ask questions directly to the community.
Additionally, you can find information on living off-grid, property for sale and general information about the Finca Bellavista community and surrounding area.
