Tropical elegance on the edge of a nature reserve

10 guests · 5 bedrooms · 5 baths
Malpais is an exclusive coastal town in the Puntarenas Province of Costa Rica. Well known for its white sandy coves, jungle covered hills, and gorgeous climate, this area’s beaches have been ranked “One of the ten most beautiful in the world” by Forbes Magazine. Located on one of those lush hillsides is Villa Nimbu, an amazing five-bedroom private luxury rental, the perfect home for an unforgettable Costa Rican vacation.
Built in harmony with its natural surroundings, Villa Nimbu is tropical elegance at its finest. Seamlessly merging indoor and outdoor spaces, and fully capitalizing on the amazing ocean view, this hillside property has all the comforts of home, and all the treasures of Costa Rica. Rustic wood furniture, exposed beams, and comfortable seating decorate the covered portion of the terrace. Numerous dining and social areas are found throughout the villa, providing ample space for entertaining. The formal dining room features a beautiful “c” shaped table with serving space in the middle and a spectacular ocean view.
Out on the many terrace and balcony spaces you’ll find sun loungers, living and dining areas, and a beautifully designed swimming pool and hot tub overlooking the ocean. Inside, you’ll enjoy satellite television, Wi-Fi, a sound system, media room, and air conditioning. Also, should the mood hit, there are hammocks positioned throughout the interior and exterior of Villa Nimbu's lush property.
With luxurious accommodations for ten, Villa Nimbu has five bedrooms three of which are considered masters. Every bedroom has an ensuite bathroom.
Small traditional fishing towns, Carmen and Santa Teresa, have morphed over the years into picturesque tourist destinations. Both are well known for their pristine beachfronts, something they possess in abundance. They are just a short drive from the villa and definitely worth exploring.
