Tony Chinchilla, representing Plantation Properties, in turn representing Christie’s International Real Estate in Costa Rica, says the property is being offered for US$29.75 million dollars  ($33 million for Canadians paying in Canadian dollars), reduced from the original asking price of US$35 million dollars in 2010.

For that you get 500 acres of privately owned jungle, with three homes, each nestled on a hilltop overlooking the Pacific Ocean. “A secluded white-sand beach is just a short walk away, and the sights and sounds of the jungle envelop the grounds,” says Christies on its website.

“The largest of the villas, Casa Guanacaste, encompasses seven bedrooms and eight baths. Each of the two smaller villas feature two bedrooms and are enhanced with additional living spaces (a poolside cottage in Casa Barrigona and a loft in Casa Dorada),” according to Christie’s promo.

According to Chinchilla they have received six offers on the property in the last two years, three from Americans, and one each from a German, French and British.
