Hillside hacienda overlooking mountains and sea

8 guests · 4 bedrooms · 3 baths
Take a tropical vacation with hacienda flair at Villa Mariposa. Set on a hill outside Nosara and looking out to the forest and Pacific Ocean, this luxury Costa Rica vacation rental has beautiful views. Reserve the four-bedroom villa for a relaxed warm-weather holiday, or book it with the neighboring Casa Colibri to host a memorable family reunion or intimate destination wedding amid lush scenery.
The villa is surrounded by a covered porch with sitting and dining areas perfect for reading, napping or just sitting with a cocktail in the balmy breeze. There’s an infinity pool that seems to stretch into the treetops and a private garden for your exclusive use. Listen to birdsong along with your breath at the yoga platform between Villa Mariposa and the neighboring casa, or inquire about using the shared soccer field and tennis courts.
Traditional stucco walls and a tiled roof open to a gracious open-plan living area. Wrought-iron chandeliers and beamed ceilings have a bit of hacienda style, while streamlined banquette seating and wicker chairs are comfortable and modern. The spacious, fully equipped open kitchen pairs its own chandelier with rich-toned wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances and a convenient breakfast bar.
Villa Mariposa has four air-conditioned bedrooms one with a king bed, and three with queens; two have ensuite bathrooms and two share a bathroom. A daybed in the master bedroom, and another in a main room/hall means the property can accommodate up to ten guests, if necessary. With floral bedding, high ceilings, and charming mullioned windows, the bedrooms are cozy and cheerful.
A location just outside the town of Nosara puts Villa Mariposa within easy reach of beaches and restaurants where you can enjoy everything from a quick local snack to a honeymoon-worthy dinner. It’s a 10-minute drive into Nosara, a 15-minute drive to the nearest beach, Playa Pelada, a 20-minute drive to the famous surfing beach of Playa Guiones and a 35-minute drive to the turtle nesting sites on Playa Ostional. Plan to fly into the airports in San Juan, Liberia, or Nosara, or ask to land your helicopter right on the property’s shared soccer field.
