Villa in Herradura
Casa Vista Paraiso
Make monkeys, sloths and toucans your closest neighbors at Casa Vista Paraiso. Nestled into the lush forest like a house in a fairy tale, this luxury Costa Rica vacation rental is the ultimate private retreat. But that doesn’t mean it’s isolated—it’s on the grounds of the Los Sueños Resort, so the fairways, beach club, marina and more are just a short golf-cart ride away from your haven. This secluded villa opens to a spacious terrace with a sunny row of loungers, pool and hot tub, all with views of the jungle so you can listen to the birds call or spot colorful dragonflies and butterflies while relaxing. A covered outdoor kitchen has a sitting area where you can serve refreshments from the bar while waiting for the barbecue to heat up, and al-fresco dining for eight. For indoor entertaining, there’s a wine fridge, wet bar and sound system. One of the most spectacular homes on the resort, Casa Vista Paraiso takes its inspiration—and many of its materials—from grand Italian estates. The nearly 9,000 square feet of custom-designed living space boast gorgeous marble floors, leather sofas, wrought-iron chandeliers and a comfortable mix of wood and wicker furniture. The living room, formal dining room and fully equipped kitchen with breakfast bar wrap around the terrace and open to it through several sets of glass doors. Each of the villa’s five bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom, making the property a wonderful alternative to a resort for a family or group of friends traveling together. There are four bedrooms with king beds, including two master suites with balconies, and one with two queen beds. Your holiday includes access to the shared beach club, restaurants, bars and marina at Los Sueños Resort, as well as the golf course upon request. Nearby sights include Playa Herradura, where you can book a fishing expedition or surf lesson, and Playa Jaco, also home to great waves and plenty of scarlet macaws. Ask resort staff about activities like waterfall tours, ATV rides, ziplining and stand-up paddleboarding, which are popular with everyone from couples on honeymoon to families to retirees.

Villa in Potrero
Villa Vista Paraiso
The mountains’ emerald slopes and the sky’s brilliant blue are reflected in the pool at this contemporary home in the hills above Potrero Beach. The surrounding jungle gives the villa a treehouse-like feel, while paneling, tables and beds made of local wood bring the landscape inside. In 10 minutes or less, you can have your toes in the sand of Potrero Beach or pursue sailfish and marlin by boat.  Palm fronds wave over a terrace with an infinity pool, loungers, a gas barbecue, and al-fresco dining for six, while the sweep of the shoreline glitters in the distance. Spot constellations from the rooftop terrace or gather in the media room around the smart TV, integrated sound system, and Wi-Fi in the evenings.  Nearly wall-to-wall glass leads from the terrace into the open-concept great room of this vacation rental, where paneling and cabinetry made of Costa Rican wood warms up the sitting area, a dining area for eight, and a fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar. Bird-themed artwork and bright blue accents add touches of tropical color.  This luxury property has three bedrooms with king beds and one bedroom with a king bed and two twin beds that’s ideal for a family with younger children. All four bedrooms have a private en-suite bathroom and open to a balcony overlooking the mountains or the mountains and the bay.  It’s only a 10-minute drive from the villa to Potrero’s shops, restaurants, and sandy beach. But if you need help finding your way—or arranging a fishing excursion, surf lesson, zipline adventure, or tee time at one of the nearby golf courses—the villa’s concierge service can help you check off your holiday must-dos. Don’t miss the chance to watch the sunset on a honeymoon-worthy stroll along one of several beaches within a few minutes’ drive.  Copyright © Luxury Retreats. All rights reserved.

All about Costa Rica

Embrace la Pura Vida with a beach vacation in Costa Rica

Are you dreaming of pristine coastlines backed by lush rainforest, exotic wildlife and high-octane adventures? Then Costa Rica is the place for you! Home to some of the best beaches in the world and vast expanses of protected rainforest, Costa Rica is the perfect destination for nature lovers and beachgoers alike.

Go off the beaten path on the Nicoya Peninsula

If you’re looking to combine tropical tranquility with beachside living, you’ll find your perfect beachfront villa getaway along Costa Rica’s stunning Pacific coast. Boasting near-perfect weather year round, gorgeous strips of white sand and some of the best surfing spots in Central America, the Nicoya Peninsula is something of a beach lover’s paradise. From the peaceful car-free community of Las Catalinas to the tranquil fishing village of Tambor on the southern tip of the peninsula, Luxury Retreats’ beachfront vacation rentals invite you to disconnect from your daily routine and relax amid idyllic views of unspoiled nature (you might even catch sight of migrating whales from your villa!). The only thing standing between you and the ocean will be your terrace and your private infinity pool...

Spend your days soaking up some rays on a secluded beach just steps from your home, or go explore the natural wonders of the peninsula. Whether it is riding the waves, sailing the ocean, snorkeling, stand-up paddleboarding, catching big fish off the coast, horseback riding or hiking the forested trails, the Nicoya Peninsula promises a host of memorable sights and exhilarating experiences. Your personal concierge will be happy to arrange any activity you wish.

Get your surf on in Tamarindo

If you like the buzz of a busy beach town, head to the lively town of Tamarindo on Costa Rica’s Gold Coast! Known as an international surf mecca, this is the perfect destination for anyone seeking a picturesque beach getaway with exciting nightlife options and a bustling food scene. Explore our curated collection of Tamarindo vacation rentals to find the villa of your dreams! Hand-picked for their exquisite style and outstanding amenities, these contemporary homes offer a haven of serenity and privacy, steps to all Tamarindo has to offer. Take a short walk to Tamarindo Beach or Langosta Beach from your villa, or a quick boat ride to the unspoiled shores of Playa Grande in the protected area of Las Baulas National Marine Park, a major nesting site for leatherback turtles.

Nature lovers will have a wonderful time exploring the maze of estuary waterways that make up the landscape between Tamarindo Beach and Playa Grande on a guided kayak tour. Spanning 1,200 acres, the Tamarindo National Wildlife Refuge is home to ospreys, herons, kingfishers, as well as howler monkeys and coatimundis. Look out for crocodiles sunbathing on the river bank!

Looking for thrills? Grab your surfboard and hit the waters at Tamarindo Beach, where you’ll find great conditions no matter your skill level. When you’ve had your fill of beach time, take a leisurely stroll around town to browse the vibrant shops and artsy boutiques, and dine at one of Tamarindo’s many restaurants, which offer everything from traditional Costa Rican to Japanese fusion. Alternatively, relax in the peaceful ambience of your own alfresco dining room, and have your personal chef cook up delicious meals featuring the flavors you love best. After sunset, put your dancing shoes on, and dance the night away at a salsa club!

Experience unique tropical rainforest vacations

With nearly half a million species on record, Costa Rica plays host to approximately 5% of the Earth’s biodiversity! On the forefront of sustainable tourism, the country allows you to experience nature like never before. Discover untouched rainforests teeming with wildlife on a villa getaway in the lush Costa Rican jungle. Plan your trip during the “green season” (or rainy season) when rivers swell up and the rainforest comes alive to fully experience the thrills and beauty of Costa Rica. From May to mid-December, you can expect the mornings to be bright and sunny, followed by an hour or two of rain in the afternoon, if it rains at all. So reserve your mornings and early afternoons for outdoor adventures, and take advantage of the afternoon showers to relax in a hammock and enjoy a delicious cup of Costa Rican coffee.

From canopy tours to golfing: adventure vacations with something for everyone

Canopied by lush rainforest vegetation, the exclusive Papagayo Peninsula in northwestern Costa Rica is the ideal destination for those looking for a lush jungle setting with pristine beaches nearby. Surrounded by vibrant tropical flora, our luxurious Papagayo villas offer incredible indoor and outdoor living spaces, along with an amazing panorama of the jungle and mesmerizing ocean views. Listen out for howler monkeys hollering from the tree-tops as you relax poolside! When you’re ready to explore, take a day trip to surrounding national parks and attractions, such as Rincon de la Vieja National Park, where you will be able to zipline through the trees, rappel down waterfalls, experience the thrills of whitewater rafting, ride on horseback along forest trails or laze the day away in volcano-fueled hot springs.

The Papagayo peninsula is also home to a private 18-hole signature designed Arnold Palmer golf course, offering all golf enthusiasts the opportunity to keep their game on point in between beach time and jungle adventures!
