A gem, a hidden treasure, an escape to nature. A place where you can stay for a little or stay for a lifetime. All you have to do is imagine… then wake up and relax, because this dream villa has it all. Built to fulfill all the needs and desires of a high-end vacation home, in a very private setting, away from the public eye and from the noisy roads. Location is the added value. Only five minutes away from downtown Uvita and all of its gourmet restaurants, banks, stores and supermarkets and some of the most magical beaches of Costa Rica.
Villa de Ensueño is a refugee from an otherwise high-speed life. Your day can start with a super fresh organic orange juice, a Costa Rica style breakfast with “gallo pinto”, and then a walk with the dogs around the organic gardens to collect some veggies for lunch. Then another walk all the way down until you reach the whale tail at low tide. From there you can view the house on the hill, surrounded by the magical evergreen forest of the Dominical mountain range. Take a deep breath, feel the breeze, hear the waves crashing against the rocks, walk the soft sands of the beaches of the National Park Marino Ballena, and then go back home, to continue the adventure of another day in paradise, and find out it wasn’t a dream, and after all, you are home!
Built as a home to create experiences and memories, an expression of the owners love for nature, without interrupting what was already there. The house sits on a hill above the canopy, overlooking the beautiful the evergreen mountain range, and the Pacific Ocean with its spectacular sunsets, the National Park Marino Ballena and its famous whale tail as part of the magnificent views.
For a private, independent and adventurous lifestyle, the home comes full of spaces for collecting exciting life experiences. A five-minute drive from the Costanera highway, on a well-maintained gravel road, takes you to a private first class concrete road with underground electricity, and natural tropical gardens on the side, leading you to the main gate with full security features and intercom, which can be opened from your cellular. Near the main gate, there is a 140 m2 caretaker´s house with two bedrooms, living room, kitchen, bathroom, laundry room, storage room and garage.
A nice concrete bridge separates the main entrance from the rest of the property, giving an added sense of privacy and security. The main house is located on the hill and the construction was adapted to the shape of the terrain. Generous parking facilities and a garage for three cars welcome you to the main house with 1,100 m2 of under-roof construction area. The house opens to the terraces, decks, and balconies, in the best expression of indoor/outdoor living.
The house is anything but ordinary. Its first-class quality of construction is an anchor attached to the hill. Every space was designed for maximum use of the space, the views and the connection with nature. The beautiful outdoor areas are complemented by a salt water infinity swimming pool overlooking Shaman Beach and the top of the trees. Monkeys, toucans, butterflies and all kinds of birds come as frequent visitors, as the house was built without interrupting their natural habitat.
The gigantic deck area is made of Manu wood, one of the hardest woods on earth. An outside Jacuzzi area is suspended on a Mirador ranch including its own hot water system, a balcony underneath and a small gym with air conditioning system.
The deck holds the infinity salt water swimming pool area surrounded by a terrace, the outside shower, and a large open-air social area ideal for large entertainment, including a full outdoor kitchen with cabinets, refrigerator and a grill with the hood extractor.
