'Sails' is a spectacular 3 bed/3 bath villa, designed by Victor Canas, one of Costa Rica's most renowned modern architects. Each room offers exceptional ocean views over the Gulf of Papagayo and its islands and El Ocotal beach is a 3 minute walk away.
The open floor plan gives a feeling of spaciousness, tranquility and privacy. The whole glass front can be opened up to access the terrace and the fabulous out-sized infinity pool. Lush tropical gardens surround the terraces and are home to exotic birds and visiting howler monkeys.
Each bedroom has its own bathroom, a/c, fan and a private balcony/terrace. A tempered glass bridge gives access to the master bedroom. High speed internet access is available.
El Ocotal is an exclusive and secure gated community surrounding an award-winning crescent beach. It is just 1.5 miles from the bustling fishing village of Playas del Coco and 30 minutes from Liberia International Airport and capital city of Guanacaste.
The Main House or the Guest House?: The house is a wonderful place to spend a few days, but if you would prefer something smaller, or less costly, then the Guest House could be for you. It has its own separate entrance and three bedrooms. There is a fully equipped kitchen with two burner stove, toaster oven, microwave and refrigerator. Each of the rooms opens onto a private deck and all have views on the ocean, which is just a three minute walk away.
As a visitor in the Guest House, you have full access to the swimming pool, where beach towels, loungers and a shower are provided.
The rooms can be rented separately or in any combination. Please email for availability.
