Perks for the Parents

This contemporary villa on Costa Rica’s beautiful Gold Coast offers all the convenience and luxury of a hotel, with the privacy and peace of a family home. It sleeps 13. The home is one of the few 6-bedrooms in its exclusive luxury development on the Peninsula. A stay here includes an in-house chef (and restaurants nearby), airport transfers, a boat and captain, and an in-home spa. Everything is taken care of, with a friendly team of helpful staff on site at all times, including an English-speaking host and cleaning staff, so you can truly relax and get away from the stress of managing your family life. Parents will love the stunning infinity pool for morning swims, and there’s a spa and gym just a few steps away. For energetic families, there are water-sports and tennis courts within the development, too. When you’re ready to explore, ask the concierge to arrange excursions to see the natural beauty and wildlife of this exotic region.

Why Kids Love it

This house has an open plan layout and has been designed with family groups in mind. The infinity pool is so close to the villa, and can be seen from each level of the house to keep an eye on little ones. The nearby Prieta Beach Club has an Adventure Kids’ Club with CPR-certified teachers and nannies, and there are daily kids’ classes including paddle boarding, surfing, yoga, chocolate-making, and much more (at an additional fee). For family days out there are canopy tours and horseback riding around 20 minutes away. For kids who want serious adventure, you’ll find volcanoes, national parks and white-water rafting around 40 minutes away. For indoor days, the cozy media room includes a TV with Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, plus a PS4 console. Hosts also provide 1 travel crib for babies or toddlers.

Style Notes

Contemporary Luxe. This exclusive villa has a relaxing, spacious feel, with lots of areas to relax and play, both inside and out. The open plan living room is finished with floor-to-ceiling windows, making the most of the exotics views over the jungle, lush gardens, pool, or golf course. The interiors blend natural textures with teak furniture, and walls and floors made with local stone and marble. The bedrooms are opulent, furnished with high quality linens and linking to stunning contemporary bathrooms. We love the chic muted colors used (which create a relaxing, comforting atmosphere) the exposed stone wall detailing in the dining room, and the minimalist floating staircase in the living area.
