We called our house Villa Serena as it seemed to capture the peace and tranquility of everything about it: Costa Rica, Guanacaste, Playa Conchal, the golf course, the beach, the trees, and of course the house itself.
Located in the exclusive Conchal Beach resort 'La Reserva Conchal', one of the most prestigious resorts in the Americas, it can be the base for truly great vacation.
With its beach club, spa, golf, tennis, horse riding, restaurants, concierge and travel services, and of course 24 hour security, La Reserva is the ultimate escape. It is also a perfect base for those wishing to explore Guanacaste. The amenities and services in the resort are second to none and welcoming staff will help make your vacation all you want it to be.
ACCOMMODATION FOR 12
With 4 Bedrooms and 5 Bathrooms (the master ensuite is quite fabulous with walled garden, overflow tub, inside and outside showers, and garden fountain) the house is perfect for a couple of families. It is large enough to accommodate most needs, with 2 king beds, 2 queen beds, additional sofa beds in two of the bedrooms, and a sofa bed in the media room.
ALL YOUR DINING NEEDS
There is a fully equipped kitchen with a double oven, a large island with a 5 burner range, second sink and breakfast seating, a double fridge, beverage/wine cooler, and plenty of exquisite granite tops to prepare all your culinary delights. There is a 8-12 person extendable dining table indoors and a 10 person dining table outdoors under the terrace roofing. There is also a dishwasher to help with the clean up. If you don't fancy any of that effort, our concierge services can arrange for a chef to do the cooking and cleaning staff to take care of the dishes. Or of course you can just order in!
The main terrace area features a full outdoor kitchen for all those BBQ lovers. There is large 4 burner gas grill, sideburner, fridge, and sink, and again plenty of granite space for all the preparation.
PRIVATE POOLS AND TERRACING
There is a large infinity edge swimming pool, a kids pool, and a Jacuzzi, all with perfect views down onto the golf course.
The extensive covered and uncovered terracing has plenty of seating and lounging options for those not quite ready to jump in the pools.
ALL YOUR NEEDS CATERED FOR
The house has a double height great room, family room, and media room, for those keen on home entertainment. It has wired and wireless internet access throughout, TV's in all bedrooms, a stereo system running through the whole house, and a computer for those who forgot their laptops. It has a fully equipped laundry room. The house has air conditioning, but there are ceiling fans throughout for those who wish a break from the AC units.
COSTA RICA AND GUANACASTE
Situated on the north west Pacific coast of Costa Rica, the area around Conchal epitomizes the heart of the Guanacaste region. With a drier climate than most of the country, the region retains much of its ranching culture. The coastal waters include some of the best surfing breaks in the country as well as world class fishing. Day trips to the national parks, cloud forests and volcanoes can round off a spectacular vacation with natures splendor, and some pretty outrageous zip-lining.

From a tripadvisor review:
The home itself is nothing short of spectacular...they truly thought of everything...The wood was beautiful and the furniture and finishing were top of the line...The pools were perfect for the 6 children ages 4-15 and it was tough to get them out to take in the other sites...Each morning we were greeted by local iguanas, anteaters, and birds...
Best: The house itself was so well laid
out and had everything imaginable to make the vacation perfect. Liled least: nothing
