Each a short walk to white sand beaches below, the villas are nestled on a hilltop among 403 acres. Custom-fitted with wood native to Costa Rica, as well as Spanish and Italian tiles, they all have vaulted ceilings, fully-equipped kitchens, outdoor barbecue areas, private pools, and verandahs overlooking the jungle and Pacific Ocean.

The largest villa, “Casa Guanacaste,” has seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms; while the smaller two consist of two bedrooms, with enhanced living spaces, including a poolside cottage in “Casa Barrigona” and a loft in “Casa Dorada.”
