|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Experience Costa Rica in contemporary style at the brand-new Casa Del Mar. Set right on Playa Hermosa in the gated community of Hermosa Palms in Puntarenas, the six-bedroom villa offers dramatic ocean views from its interiors and has outdoor living spaces just steps from the sand. A separate guest house offers plenty of space for large groups, or a private retreat for couples.
Casa Del Mar opens to a covered terrace with loungers and a sunny al-fresco dining area. Descend the steps to the pool and continue on to the beach, where youll find more chaise longues ready for sunbathing. A covered rooftop deck is an ideal spot for reading or enjoying the breeze off the water. Theres an outdoor shower for post-beach rinsing, a gas grill for cooking local fare and an iPod dock and Wi-Fi for entertainment. In the evenings, gather in the home theater or challenge each other at the pool and ping-pong tables or in the recreation room.
The villas interiors are sleek and modern, with floor-to-ceiling windows and minimalist furnishings that emphasize the ocean views. In the living room, a white leather sectional is perfectly positioned to look out the two-story pane of glass to the waves and palm trees. The open-plan living area has two dining areas with clean-lined tables and chairs: one closer to the water for more formal dinners, and one nearer the kitchen for casual breakfasts. A second sitting area with another sectional is adjacent to the fully equipped island kitchen.
There are four bedrooms in the main house at Casa Del Mar, and two in the guest house. All bedrooms have air conditioning, ceiling fans and TVs, and each bedroom in the main house has an en-suite bathroom. In the main house, youll find one bedroom with a king bed, pool access and an ocean view, and three bedrooms with queen beds, two with mountain views and one with a garden view. In the guest house, one bedroom has a king bed and ocean view and the other has a queen bed and garden view. The two bedrooms share a bathroom.
From Casa Del Mar, its a 1.5-mile drive to the nearest restaurant, and a 4.5-mile drive to a grocery store, fitness and healthcare facilities and the town of Jaco. Bring your clubs and racquets to the golf course and tennis courts at Los Suenos Resort, 9.5 miles away, and make your connection at the Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose, 58 miles away.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
The villa is located along a stretch of Hermosa Beach that is only recommended for advanced surfers.
Guests should be aware that roads in Costa Rica are often unpaved and a four-wheel drive vehicle is recommended for getting from place to place.
This homeuses solar panels to heat the water. As a result, hot water is delayed and limited.
The infrastructure of Costa Rica is less developed than in many countries. Despite being well equipped, there can sometimes be water and power outages at the villa.

The trip was a surprise for my partner's 40th birthday. He knew neither where we were going nor that we would be met by 10 of our closest friends. The trip was a wonderful success -- an extraordinary getaway from the cold weather to the tropical paradise of Costa Rica. The weather was perfect, the ocean was so accessible, the house spectacular, our chef was extraordinary, and the support staff helpful. We loved it.
Casa Del Mar is truly breathtaking! The stunning views from the house match the stunning decor and architecture of the home. When you approach the home and start to tour the property, it is overwhelmingly stunning with floor to ceiling windows and huge bedrooms and bathrooms throughout the home. The home has modern decor and fixtures, while nestled perfectly on the beach. The staff is amazing and very accommodating to the needs of the house guests.
We had a couple of snafu's during our stay (busted pipe, sewage smell in one bedroom and a few areas of the home need to be updated) but the staff quickly fixed our plumbing and sewage issues while we were out exploring Costa Rica. I would absolutely return to Casa Del Mar; this property is truly a piece of paradise!
We had a fantastic time. The staff/concierge were so attentive - and I had many questions! Every part of the trip was memorable. Thanks so much!
It was a relaxing and wonderful vacation. The people at Luxury retreats were very helpful from booking of the house to making excursion reservations. They even helped cancel one of the excursions and got 2/3 our money back. Which we didn't expect since we canceled the evening before.
The only thing to keep in mind, your neighbors are very close, But all in all a very nice vacation. the beach is amazing.
First, but definitely not the last time to Costa Rica! The country is absolutely beautiful and to have the opportunity to stay at Casa Del Mar cemented the trip! The home and location was top notch. There were a few snafus, but every home has them and certainly not enough to complain about. I would do it again and again!!!!
