This beautiful designer home in the hills of the Malpais/Santa Teresa area has a truly spectacular ocean view, and is one of the most secluded homes in the area.

The Balinese/Moroccan design has two bedrooms, 2 1/2 bathrooms, a large gourmet kitchen, a salt water swimming pool, and a large covered deck / patio from which to appreciate the epic vistas.

Located within the “Hacienda Okhra” mountain village, it’s one of only three houses on a very large finca, measuring more than 80 acres, and surrounded by jungle.

This house is very popular because of the great price, so it’s a good idea to inquire early about it.
