Guests often search for this popular amenity
This brand new minimal carbon footprint 3 bedroom villa with expansive infinity pool is situated 400 meters above sea level, offering enjoyably cooler temperatures over what you might find down by the beach (just a quick 15 minute drive away). Enjoy this ideal location where the mountains literally meet the vast Pacific Ocean, and the breezes are nearly infinite. The incredible lushness of this unique mountain coastline area is sometimes compared to Hawaii and other world famous natural meccas.

The space
Villa Saltamontes possesses all the features and charm one might expect.

The villa is located off the beaten track and is backed by a great second growth forest which hosts all kinds of wonderful flora and fauna for your enjoyment, yet is just a few minutes' drive to the warm waters of Dominical beach. The ever popular Tinamastes organic farmer's market is also just a couple of kilometers away (held every Tuesday morning).

Built to be thermally cooling, Villa Saltamontes boasts fresh Pacific breezes throughout the entire home, making it an extremely comfortable environment without the need of any air conditioning. To top it off, the solar panels located on the roof reduce the property's carbon footprint even further by providing all the hot water you might need.

One of the other great features is the wall to wall glass sliding doors that face the ocean, which retract completely into the walls on either side opening up the whole living area of the villa to the shimmering infinity pool and the gorgeous ocean and sunset views beyond.

The sleek modern architectural design offers functionality and privacy, and the solid concrete walls do a wonderful job of keeping the elements outdoors where they belong. To soften the overall feel of the place, the villa is accented by hardwoods and solid teak furniture throughout. Large glass windows are found in every room of the villa, offering guests views of the jungle forest and its inhabitants as well as gorgeous mountain and ocean views.

The kitchen with its array of premium appliances, has a full size breakfast bar, and is open to the dining and living areas making it wonderful for entertaining.

The three smartly spaced out bedrooms consist of one master bedroom with a king bed, en-suite bathroom which has two sinks, large closet with a work space, and private access to the pool area as well as ocean views. The second bedroom is made up of one queen bed, plenty of closet space, its own access to the pool area as well as ocean views. A shared bathroom is located between the second and third bedroom. You will find two twin beds and a large closet in the third bedroom, with windows that look into the jungle forest.

Luxury meets practical with extra amenities that include a premium water filtration system so you can enjoy the delicious drinking water without any worries, a covered car port right by the main entrance to the villa for extra convenience, a separate laundry room with top of the line washer and dryer for guests use, and a covered poolside patio with a stainless steel barbecue for those who like to cook outdoors.

Some extra perks Villa Saltamontes offers guests that make it even more unique include an outdoor herb and seasonal vegetable garden, as well as a chicken coop where the free ranging chickens provide you with deliciously fresh organic eggs for your enjoyment. To top it off, there are fruit trees and plants scattered throughout the property for anyone who wishes to forage for some ripe pineapple or bananas that might be present (many animals take advantage of this so its first come first serve and is season dependent).

The town of Platanillo which is just a couple minutes' drive away offers a supermarket, a small bar as well as a local Tico restaurant. The closest beach town is Dominical, which has a variety of stores, restaurants and boutiques (even a health food store similar to Whole Foods believe it or not). Whether you enjoy surfing or relaxing on the warm sands this town is a great place to hang out. A variety of waterfalls with great swimming holes are also found in the close vicinity to the villa so you will never run out of things to do here!

Where you’ll be

Platanillo, San José Province, Costa Rica

The best of both worlds can be found here, as guests will love to escape to the cool hills after hiking to incredible waterfalls or enjoying the warm waters of the many pristine beaches found nearby. Temperatures are cooler here than at the beach which is just 15 minutes away. Another great plus to this villa is that one of the country's prettiest and biggest waterfall is located nearby and can be accessed either by hiking to it from the waterfall parking area or by horseback for those with an appetite for adventure! Foodies will be able to enjoy organic local markets held in different towns nearby. The closest one is in Tinamastes just a 10 minute drive away (held every Tuesday starting at 8am.
