About the property

2,676 sq. ft. home features 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a Lap Pool

Casa Orquidea features spacious indoor spaces with an open floor plan, an outdoor shower, a 45 ft. lap pool and a huge tropical garden. This recently remodeled home has three bedrooms and three full bathrooms.

The Space

The house has two bedrooms and an office with pull out sofa, each with air conditioning and en suite, spacious bathrooms. The living room and kitchen are air conditioned, and there are ceiling fans throughout the home. Please Note: Electricity is not included in the rate; it will be due upon departure.

The master suite includes a king size bed, large built-in closet, dresser, a Jacuzzi bathtub, onyx lighting and marble countertops. Outside the master suite, there is an outdoor bamboo shower with hot/cold water. This is the best of tropical living!

The second bedroom features a king size bed, closet and dresser, and the bathroom has a shower.

The third room (used as an office) has a desk, a storage hutch for linens, and pull out Mexican sofa cama (43" wide x 73" long). This pull out is best suited for 1. There is a seam in the middle of the sofa cama (as it folds up to a couch); please see photo. Adjacent, there is a full bathroom with shower.

The fully equipped kitchen, which is open to the dining and living area, features air conditioning, quartz countertops, a six burner gas stove, two sinks, a dishwasher, a microwave, reverse osmosis filtered water and ample cookware, dishes and appliances to make your stay enjoyable. An outdoor portable charcoal grill is available.

The house has tile floors, sliding doors with screens and ceiling fans throughout. The swimming pool is 45 feet long, making it perfect for laps. The rock waterfall provides peaceful water sounds throughout the house and garden.

Tropical breezes waft through the indoor spaces, connecting you to the outdoors. On the patio, you can relax in complete comfort in the shade, swim in the filtered lap pool with rock waterfall or enjoy the large garden with lush landscaping of bamboo, ginger, heliconia, orchids, fruit trees and other tropical delights.

If you are driving, there is also a garage... a welcome asset for a rental in the city!

Weekly maid and pool service included.
