The 10,000 square foot villa has a Mexican inspired facade with touches of Balinese design. The floor plan is open, light and breezy. Rooms are situated to maximize the stunning ocean views. We worked for months with our architect to reverse-engineer our favorite rental properties in Costa Rica, combining top designs into The Villa.
We selected materials that integrate and stress the incredible views. Subdued earth tones calm the spirit. We did our best to weave elements of earth and water throughout the home, including river rock floor inlays, exotic woods and Nicaraguan hand-made roof tiles.
In all, seven private bedrooms are generously situated in the two story structure. Even at maximum capacity, guests will still find plenty of space to roam.
Villa Guest Rooms
We have seven spacious guest suites in the villa, each one named after a tree species native to the region. There are three on the 1st floor and four on the 2nd floor, each with an en suite bathroom, fine linens, full closets, surround sound, original paintings and 10 ft. ceilings.
All rooms enjoy ocean views from a private patio or balcony except our garden view Guanacaste Suite. The two corner suites on the 2nd floor have over-sized bathrooms with semi-open-air showers, while the downstairs Poro Poro Suite is handicap accessible. Max occupancy is 23 guests.

Villa Pool & Sundeck
We went over-the-top with our swimming pool. We hired local pool legend Joan Roca, who has designed luxury swimming areas for many celebrity pleasure homes in Costa Rica, including supermodel Gisele and Mel Gibson.
The result was a gigantic infinity pool, generous for most small hotels. An upper sitting pool with Jacuzzi jets gently cascades into a lower, larger pool. A small ledge behind the waterfall provides a grotto area where guests can let the water rush over them.
The swim up bar is an excellent place to sip a tropical cocktail while enjoying the stunning ocean views. The same bar is also accessible from a dry sitting area with a rustic rancho roof that offers shade on a typical sunny Guanacaste day.
