Contemporary villa in secluded hillside

9 guests · 4 bedrooms · 4 baths
Indulge in a luxury stay with eco-friendly cred at Villa Tropical. This Costa Rica vacation rental is stylishly appointed and sustainably designed, with contemporary open-plan rooms and features like solar-powered water heaters. Its location in the exclusive Mar Vista community puts you close to both the quiet white-sand beaches of Playa Flamingo and the lively surf scene in Tamarindo.
Villa Tropical is set on three lush private acres with mountain and ocean views. The house is laid out around an expansive terrace with a infinity pool, plenty of chaise longues, an outdoor kitchen with a barbecue, and shaded sitting and dining areas. There’s space for the whole family to play games on the lawn or the half basketball court.
The interiors of Villa Tropical are designed to allow cooling cross breezes to waft through the living spaces, lit by energy-saving LED bulbs and served by solar-heated water that’s then recycled for use in the gardens. But that doesn’t mean they sacrifice style or comfort. The heart of the home is a beautiful open-plan great room with a living area, dining area and fully equipped kitchen that can be opened to the terrace via sliding glass walls. Details like mod lounge chairs, natural-fiber rugs and stunning waterfall countertops feel both chic and inviting.
There are three bedrooms in the villa’s main house, and one in a guest house that could be used as a honeymoon or in-law suite. In the main house, you’ll find a master suite with a king bed, en-suite bathroom and ocean views, and two bedrooms that share a bath: one with a queen bed, the other with two twin beds. The guest-house suite features a king bed, en-suite bathroom, al-fresco shower and views stretching out over the pool, mountains and Pacific.
Designed as a sustainable community for families, retirees and everyone in between, Mar Vista is perfect for a holiday close to great golf, snorkeling, diving, fishing, stand-up paddleboarding and hiking trails. Villa Tropical is a 1-minute walk from the community clubhouse and a 3-mile drive or less from three different beaches. To see more of Costa Rica or enjoy a memorable night out, make the short drive to Tamarindo and sample its shopping, dining and entertainment.
