VILLA LAS CLEMENTINAS - PRIVATE LUXURY VILLA, INFINTY POOL, CANYON EGDE FABULOUS

Alajuela House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Luxury Queen Sleeper in Den, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Impeccable, Romantic, Luxurious and Private Compound - Architectural Masterpiece, Exclusive Enclave in Costa Rica's Coffee Country - Located on the grounds of an old Coffee and Orange Plantation in the Central Valley, Perched high on the edge of one of the region's largest and most beautiful private canyons

'Villa Las Clementinas'

This 3 bedroom beautiful luxury villa is built on the edge of a huge canyon just 30 minutes outside of San Jose --- but a world away. Infinity pool with hot tub, chef's kitchen, indoor and outdoor showers - must see pictures to believe. Gated community with international residents. Close enough for day trips to beach, volcanoes, zip lining, white water rafting, hot air balloon trips, waterfall hikes, etc.

Private vacation retreat available for rent. Designed and custom built in 2007 by Edgar Brennis, the founder of the School of Architecture at the University of San Jose, this home was built to complement the natural beauty of the surroundings. This house is located on an old mountain coffee and orange plantation that has since been converted into a private luxury, preserved, guarded and gated community.

Our home sits on the edge of a very large and magnificent canyon, through which the Rio Grande River flows. The entire home is built to maximize the views of the canyon and magnificent vistas can be seen from each room. The house is centered around a gorgeous wood and stone back yard area with an infinity pool that features a river stone hot tub and views that are unmatched. Bird watching is one of our favorite pastimes here. (Binoculars, book library and an insane variety of birds included.)

Outdoor and indoor showers, beautiful furnishings, luxury linens are just some of the things that make our vacation home so special. It is a very comfortable and serene haven to relax and rejuvenate and enjoy the peace, quiet and beauty of Costa Rica.

We have a large family and we love to cook and entertain. Our gourmet kitchen that is well stocked with pans and utensils and whatever equipment you will need to make and enjoy a fabulous meal at home. Green markets, butchers and grocery stores are only a fifteen minute ride away into the town of Grecia.

Each bedroom features a private porch overlooking the canyon. You can arrange with a local day spa to make a house call to give you a massage, facial or other spa services. The cost for this is very inexpensive compared to the United States and is an affordable vacation indulgence like no other.

This is the ideal place to come and unwind. Whether you are looking to fly into San Jose and spend a few nights recalibrating before you venture out to explore the wonders this country has to offer, or you are just looking for the perfect place to completely relax, this gorgeous home will perfectly suit your needs.

The home is also an ideal place to use as a home base to take day trips to explore the rainforests, volcanoes, cloud forests and Pacific beaches for the day. All of these wonders are well within a day trip's reach from the house.

Our property manager Dan Schild, a lovely American gentleman and expat, will meet you at the property upon your arrival to orient you with the home, the security system, how to operate the pool and hot tub and to answer any questions that you may have. He can also give you some tips on day trips, where to go, etc.

One of our favorite ways to spend the day is relaxing, sunning and reading by the pool at the house, fixing lunch in the gourmet kitchen, and then to wrap up the afternoon with a spa house call in the afternoon. The hotel next door is always good for a canyon-side cocktail, a visit with the local kinkajou and even dinner if you wish.

On Sundays, the hotel hosts a terrific Sunday Brunch, complete with a live jazz quartet.

This hotel is 5 minutes by car from the house and their wonderful and helpful staff can also help you make arrangements for tours, drivers, day trips, etc...

Don't worry, you aren't completely off of the grid if you do not want to be. The home is equipped with wireless internet, US Cell Phone reception, TV with DVD player and satellite (SKY),(current) indie and Oscar award-winning movie library, stereo system and security system.

You can have the best of both worlds... come and relax in seclusion and, if you want, go off the grid for a while. Or, stay plugged in and connected with the outside world.

When you stay at Villa Las Clementinas, you will be in the exact locale that Travel and Leisure singled out as the 'best climate in the world'. You will rediscover what it means to be totally relaxed and rejuvenated.

House is in great proximity to many of Costa Rica's finest and funnest activities.... close enough for day trips to the beach, zip lining, bird watching excursions (and also at the house), multiple farmer's markets, white water rafting, waterfall hikes ... and many other fabulous things!

Nearby hotel concierge can help arrange day trips, car and driver, massages and spa services (at house or hotel) etc. House manager can help arrange for private chef (local and also Canadian chefs available), daily house cleaning, etc. .....

Richard and Anne-Caroline.... we live in Atlanta and built this home as our personal hideaway in Costa Rica. We love to visit the house by ourselves to enjoy quiet time together and also love to visit the house with large groups of family and friends. We have found Costa Rica to be our own little Shangri-La and we have so enjoyed getting to know this beautiful country and its people. We have purchased land on the Caribbean side of Costa Rica (in Cahuita) and have fallen in love with the bohemian hamlets of Puerto Viejo and Cahuita. We hope to build a beach house in Cahuita sometime soon.

Anne-Caroline Brown Taylor purchased this house in 2007

Paradise found, perfect location, the good life. We built this home on a lot we purchased on an old coffee and orange plantation that is now a gated luxury community.

Relaxation, Relaxation, Relaxation and more Relaxation. Great for entertaining, great central location for exploring Costa Rica....close to the airport in San Jose but a world apart from the city.

PARADISE FOUND

  • 5 of 5
This house is magnificent. We were there for a week with a group of friends (40somethings) and several children and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. We saw sloths and a monkey at the house, along with several birds and other wildlife species. The house was within easy day trip to the beach, zip lining, hiking, great restaurants, etc. All in all, it was perhaps my favorite vacation we have taken and I cannot wait to go back next year. The house itself is gorgeous and 5 Star nice. The view is breathtaking. A wonderful, wonderful place to have a vacation.

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
This house is incredible. Its features with the pool/ jacuzzi overlooking the canyon are amazing. The interior is simple and tasteful. The beds are beyond comfortable and the outdoor showers are to die for. I love this place and we all talked about returning to this house and lovely country again. The Vista de Valle Plantstion Inn is a great little resource as well.

GREAT HOUSE, GREAT VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
This place is amazing. Cannot say enough how much we enjoyed our stay. The views were breathtaking, This place is amazing. Cannot say enough how much we enjoyed our stay. The views were breathtaking, house was beautiful and every room had a view. Location was perfect! Each day we had a new adventure. Arenal, La Fortuna, Waterfall Gardens, Poas and Jaco just to name a few. Everyday after an adventure the pool and hot tub is just what we needed/wanted! The homeowner was very helpful in recommending excursions and restaurants. Everything she suggested was perfect. I miss this place already and cannot wait to go back and explore more. - A

A LITTLE SLICE OF HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5
We could not have asked for more! Villa Las Clementinas offers the perfect blend of comfort with luxury & a view to live for! We took day trips to Jaco, Manuel Antonia, Poas Volcano, La Paz Waterfall Gardens but were always anxious to get back "home". Anne-Caroline provided fabulous recommendations on everything from favorite restaurants & spas to where to get the best deals on souvenirs! We would have missed one of our favorite stops-Villa Celetas without her guidance.Thank you to Villa Las Clementinas & Anne-Caroline! We will DEFINITELY be back soon!

BY FAR THE BEST RENTAL IN THE CENTRAL VALLEY

  • 5 of 5
We love this home and its amenities. Beautiful and comfortable beds and linens, stunning canyon views, lovely kitchen. The house is maintained very well and an architectural gem. I have highly recommended this property to friends and family. Our son's wedding party hated to leave to go to the beach! Pool, hot tub, hikes, waterfalls and birds galore.

BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
Costa Rica was a great place to visit and we couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay! The grounds and home were beautiful and well maintained. The owner was very helpful in answering all our questions. The Villa Vista Inn nearby was a great place to have cocktails and dinner. So much to do nearby, we went white water rafting, ziplining, to the vocanos, La Paz waterfalls, and to the Beach!
A great time:)
