The beach residence of your dreams… Villa Serena is an exclusive and classic Tuscan style oceanfront property on an intimate and exotic tropical beach in Costa Rica. Days will go by while you will capture the sounds and smells of the waves and the spectacular views over the Pacific Ocean.

On your terrace you will enjoy the swimming pool, the manicured gardens and the closeness to the ocean. Inside, the house offers an ample social area connected to the open custom designed Italian kitchen. The granite staircase takes you to the second floor offering a master bedroom, with walk-in dressing room, bathroom with Jacuzzi and shower, and a private terrace to admire the beach and ocean views. The house has three additional bedrooms, two of which having a full bathroom.

Some technical data:

• Villa Serena’s ceramic tiles, Aran kitchen cabinets and its aluminum railings are all imported from Italy. High-end Kitchen Aid appliances.

Packages of one, two and three sessions per week are available.

Villa Serena is less than 5 minutes away from Carrillo Beach, a pristine white-sand, palm-lined beach. Rolling hills and mountains covered with tropical forests surround the bay and protect the beach from strong winds and swells. A reef north of the bay acts as a natural barrier, providing calm waters ideal for water sports such as swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking or anchoring your boat.

Ten minutes to the south of Villa Serena, lies Playa Camaronal, a remote beach with greyish sand and blue waters, which is a popular nesting site for leatherback (Mar–Apr) and olive ridley turtles (year round). It was declared as a National Wildlife Refuge in 1994. Its moderate to strong waves make it an ideal spot for surfers.

Villa Serena has it all!

Welcome to your own place in paradise!

Denisse and William lived in Switzerland for many years. Renovated and renewed several gentlemen farmhouses, and after extensively traveling around the globe, looking for the perfect place as part of living the happiest possible life, they chose the Pacific Ocean side of lovely Costa Rica.

Denisse Cobert purchased this villa in 2012

Villa Serena is a unique oceanfront jewel. The Tuscan architecture has been deployed with solid bases and unparalleled attention to detail. The architect and builder is world-renowned (Philadelphia Airport, and several high-rises on the biggest cities around the globe).

Splendid Pacific Ocean views and impeccable finishes.

The previous owner of Villa Serena is a Canadian investor who built the villa as his private vacation home with no budget restrictions. Villa Serena was built by Italian developer Sam Alibrando with high attention to detail and the highest standards of quality of construction. The location of Villa Serena is a privileged one; anyone going there just falls in love immediately after stepping out of the car. The sounds of the waves crashing against the rocks and the peacefulness of its blue ocean, the magnificent sunsets and the marine breeze, makes days at Villa Serena a magic experience that people want to repeat over and over again. Villa Serena is located near Carrillo, in a very private setting, completely away from the noise and busy streets of towns. No one can predict there is such a beautiful villa there, when entering the gravel road for the first time.

The new owners of Villa Serena just turned it into a very unique oceanfront vacation rental home. And Villa Serena has it all to guarantee the best vacations one can have in its lifetime. The danger of coming to Villa Serena... is not wanting to leave when the time is over!

Villa Serena is a magical Tuscan Style villa with the benefits of the majestic Pacific Ocean right out the back door!

OFF THE BEATEN PATH

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Villa Serena for a week at the beginning of May. It is about an hour and a half from Liberia airport at the end of the road going through Playa Carilllo. I drank water out of the taps and had no issues but there are plenty of small stores in the area to purchase food, drinks and alcohol. Hint: Purchase your hard liquor at the airport. Cheaper for some reason, I think taxes.

The home itself is sitting on a cliff about 50 feet above a small beach. Every now and then locals would use it and go sit on the rocks to watch the waves crash, but most of the time, you have it to yourself. The beach is a short walk down a moderate pathway and if you ventured out onto the rocks you get to view some wonderful sunsets. The waves crashing on the rocks was constant and the sound carried throughout the home. All the amenities in the home were high end and in very good working order including the pool.

Three of the four bedrooms were nice size with their own bathrooms, one was much smaller and would have to use one of the other baths.

We have been to CR several times and I must say that Denisse provided the most information about the surrounding area and things to do of all the VRBO homes that we have rented. This home also had the best views of our stays and the best feeling of seclusion.

Modesto and Marcia were wonderful and attentive without being intrusive.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Spent a great week at this home. The place is every bit as nice as the pictures and more. There are so many places to relax and enjoy the weather, but my favorite was morning coffe on the upstairs terrace.
Can't go wrong. And Marcia is a great cook!

Puerto Carrillo, situated along the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica's Guanacaste Province, is known for its jewel among Pacific beaches. The town itself is very small (less than 500 full-time residents) and is predominantly a sport-fishing village with a variety of nice hotels, restaurants and tour operators. The population in Carrillo is mainly local residents and still maintains an authentically Costa Rican atmosphere. Puerto Carrillo is a small unobtrusive community that has been playing host to some of the most well renown sport fishing boats in the world, since its discovery as a billfish destination over 15 years ago. The small town boasts several hotels, fine restaurants, stores, a small airstrip, and one of the most beautiful white sand beaches in Costa Rica. The tiny harbor affords protection to a small handful of charter and private boats that are here on permanent bases. The beautiful white sand beach is popular with swimmers and an ideal beach for your kids.

Playa Carrillo ranks among the Final Four for 25 Best Secret Beaches on Earth (Travel and Leisure March 2012). Just south of the popular surfer’s paradise of Samara Beach, Playa Carrillo is one of the least developed spots on the Nicoya Peninsula. Framed by mountains, the laid-back fishing village has a white-sand beach just off a palm-lined boulevard (there are no unsightly beachfront buildings). Known among divers for its excellent coral reef teeming with marine life, the beach is protected by rocky headlands, providing calm, warm water for swimmers. Don’t miss the La Selva Zoo and Bromeliad Gardens at the southern end of the bay.
