With all of the adverse publicity he’s received over the past few years, a jungle hideaway in Costa Rica would seem like the perfect respite for Mel Gibson. As it turns out, maybe not so much.
The actor continues to look for a buyer for Playa Barrigona, the stunning property that gives way to 500 acres of privately owned jungle in a remote area of Costa Rica’s lush Nicoya Peninsula, along country’s northern Pacific coast. The price tag?
$29.75 million dollars through Christie’s International Real Estate.
Here’s a look at why…
The largest of the three villas, Casa Guanacaste, encompasses seven bedrooms and eight baths.
Custom-fitted with native Costa Rican woods and Spanish and Italian tiles, each villa claims a generous layout, including a living room with vaulted ceilings…
…multiple verandas looking out over jungle and ocean vistas…
The region is known for its spectacular white sand beaches and its remote location.
Rarely marked on maps, Playa Barrigona is such a haven of solitude and serenity that olive ridley sea turtles travel thousands of miles across the Pacific each year to lay their eggs on this beach.
One of the two smaller villas features a poolside cottage in Casa Barrigona.
Each of the two smaller villas feature two bedrooms and are enhanced with additional living spaces.
A private pool, full air conditioning, and barbecue areas complete the amenities at each residence.
Each of the three homes is nestled on a hilltop overlooking the Pacific Ocean. A secluded white-sand beach is just a short walk away.
