Charming 1 BR villa for sale in Osa Mountain Village/Toucan Valley, an organic farm in the jungle of Costa Rica. Listed at $99,000!
Tucked into the mountains, just above the entrance to the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica, lies a quaint, peaceful community that goes by the name of Toucan Valley, also known as Osa Mountain Village.
Located in an extremely biologically diverse section of the Earth, this jungle paradise is packed full of abundant wildlife, vibrant flora and fauna, dense jungle, serene waterfalls, friendly faces and overflowing fruit and vegetable gardens.
Ten months ago my husband and I found ourselves at Osa Mountain Village/Toucan Valley, about 30 minutes south of Uvita, along the Pacific Coast. We were planning to rent a villa for one month, and then continue our travels around Costa Rica.
But once you step foot onto these inviting grounds, you never want to leave. So we didn't.
Osa Mountain Village/Toucan Valley is a special place. A charming, organic farm surrounding a village of happy, laid-back people, that feels like home the instant you arrive. Immersed in nature, surrounded by lush jungle, fruit trees and waterfalls, the high elevation of 1800 feet provides comfortable temperatures year-round, while creating expansive ocean views.
Our friend and neighbors Arne and Monica are selling their charming villa, unit 17A, as they are moving to a larger house down the street.
Located in an ideal section of the village, right next to the pool and bar, as well as the laundry facilities, their villa is listed for sale at $99,000. While conveniently located in a prized spot with easy access to everything, you still have privacy and seclusion from the expansive, over-sized porch.
Toucan Valley is an American-built community, with all the comforts and modern conveniences you could imagine. Villa 17A is 900 square feet, with many beautiful upgrades.
Villa 17A is a 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom unit. Spacious and comfortable, with large rooms and lots of natural light, it is the perfect size with a flowing, breezy layout.
The inviting pool and community center are right outside your door, featuring a restaurant, bar and 3 solar heated pools, with salt water filtering system and no chemicals.
With numerous refreshing waterfalls surrounding these lush grounds, there are plenty of hiking trails of varied difficulty, for you to choose from each day you spend in paradise.
Also surrounded by diverse and expansive organic fruit and vegetable gardens, you can make farm-to-table a part of every meal, as you pick fresh produce directly from the well-maintained gardens. Help yourself to the resident banana box, or take a walk through the fruit orchard, or pinch some fresh herbs to make a special garden dinner.
And don't forget to leave your veggie basket out every Sunday and Wednesday evening, so you can wake up to farm-fresh eggs and your bi-weekly surprise from the garden fairy.
When you're feeling adventurous there is a canopy zipline tour that goes through the village, which includes 18 stations, an extension bridge, ending with a Tarzan swing out over the jungle valley.
And Toucan Valley earns it's name, as numerous families of toucans bounce amongst the trees, playing follow-the-leader, calling to each other across the jungle.
Not only is OMV/Toucan Valley a bird-watcher's dream, and one of the few places in the world where you can witness scarlet macaws in the wild, it is also one of the only places in Costa Rica where you can witness all 4 monkey species in their natural habitat.
This extremely biologically diverse section of jungle will leave you speechless as you are gifted animal encounter after animal encounter.
Just a 20-minute drive from some of the most beautiful beaches across the land of "rich coasts, you can choose to spend your day at one spectacular beach, or beach-hop your way up the desered, breath-taking coastline.
OMV/Toucan Valley is a place that feels like home the second you step foot onto the colorful, peaceful grounds. The laid-back vibe oozes into your soul within seconds. It is a place your feet may leave, but never your heart.

It would be a tragedy to die, having never really lived. Which is why my husband Andy and I quit our jobs, sold our house and decided to chase our dreams. We moved to Costa Rica without a plan, and this is the story of our adventure.
