This African-inspired designer villa, aptly named Residencia Kenia, has been crafted with a meticulous attention to detail. Masterfully incorporated into the surrounding jungle, Residencia Kenia boasts a private pool inspired by the dark sands of Playa Negra, luxuriant designer landscaping, an open-air design including a lounge for relaxing, entertaining or dining, 3 bedroom suites, a massage/hammock platform adjacent to the pool, an office, and a gourmet kitchen.

Two bedrooms privately located in separate wings of the main house offer en-suite bathrooms, walk in closets, and king-sized beds. The master bathroom adds a large double vanity, dressing area, separate shower, and an in-ground outdoor Jacuzzi for unwinding in style or relaxing to the jungle sounds by candlelight. For guests wanting a bit more privacy, the third en-suite king-sized bedroom is located in a poolside bungalow. All the beds are equipped with mosquito nets.

The center of the house is a massive open-air dining and entertaining area, including a comfortable lounge, full-size billiards table, and dining for 8. The lounge and dining room communicate with a fully equipped gourmet kitchen offering a four-burner commercial grade gas range oven, Kitchen Aid mixer, large refrigerator and freezer, blender, toaster, and coffee pot.

Amenities include Wi-Fi Internet, a safe, and a washer & dryer. For active guests, the rental includes 6 beach bikes, 2 boogie boards, and a sea kayak. Live-in staff housed in a separate caretakers quarters provides security, housekeeping, landscaping.

Residencia Kenia was designed for style, comfort, convenience, and privacy. The temperature inside stays comfortable day and night as it was specially designed to stay cool using concrete construction and an open-air design to catch the Caribbean breezes.

Details about the house and the area :

Costa Rica has a tropical climate and is known for its biodiversity. The main characteristics of a tropical area are high humidity throughout the year, lush vegetation and tropical insects. Please be aware that you will probably encounter some of those during your stay!

High humidity makes moisture an issue. We opted for an open-air built house allowing a constant ventilation avoiding moisture and bringing a cool temperature inside the house. Consequently, the house does not have glass windows, and no front door.

About security :

Security might be an issue in the area.

The house is surrounded by a full perimeter fence and access is made through an electric wooden gate. There is a full time guard living in a caretaker house inside the perimeter. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood, so is not totally isolated. The 3 bedrooms can be locked with keys, and the office has a safe, to which you will get keys and code.

Please do not hesitate to ask any more questions, we will be happy to answer!

A wonderful place to take the family!

  • 5 of 5
Our family, six adults and two children under three years, welcomed the New Year in one of the most glorious accommodations in Costa Rica! From the moment we arrived, we felt comfortable, safe and happy! Amalie welcomed us with warmth and gave us many suggestions for activities, restaurants and general information about the area. We were able to easily walk to the beach every day. We can't say enough about the beautiful, African-themed accommodations!! The youngest was still crawling, and he had plenty of room to practice! The open construction allowed us to feel as if we were living in one of the rain forests of CR. We all enjoyed the pool at the end of each day. The caretakers were on the grounds to assist us in ALL matters and even prepared us a wonderful breakfast. We would HIGHLY recommend Casa Kenia to all ages.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5
We stayed a week at Casa Kenya, and it was absolutely perfect in every way. The pictures do not do the house justice at all. The moment you walk in the door, you are blown away by how unbelievable the place is, way beyond expectations. Amalie, the agent, was extremely attentive, and upon arrival she acted as a tremendous guide to all worth doing in the area. The caretaker and his wife were amazing, and took beautiful care of us, cleaning up, problem solving and always leaving the house lights on for us in the evening. The surrounding towns are small and rustic, but very friendly and easily navigated. The food fabulous! The wildlife incredible! The pool, perfect! Felt safe and carefree being there. Would definitely go back. Slept four adults and one child in absolute luxury. We don't usually go on vacations and only stay in one place, but the house is so great, you almost don't want to leave.

Wonderful tropical house with an African touch and fantastic atmosphere

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in Residencia Kenya for 4 days in January this year. I saw the house last year when I was travelling in Costa Rica for the first time and I already decided then I would come back and stay in Residencia Kenya. I fell in love with Puerto Viejo and with the house.

The house is big and spacious, wonderfully designed, with lots of open space and perfect natural ventilation. The finishing is really up scale and luxurious. A big terrace stretching out to the garden is a wonderful place to party, relax or have meals and BBQs. I also loved the garden and the swimming pool with salt water, not chemically treated.

The location is perfect as well. Not too far from the town of Puerto Viejo but in a quiet area, just a short walk away from my favorite beach. But apart from walking on the beach I spent most of my time in the house and felt no need to go out ! I just enjoyed being there so much.

The place is very safe. There is a caretaker and his family on the spot, who by the way are very discreet and quiet. You will have as much privacy as you like but the property is secured.

The property manager Amelie is fantastic. She picked me up and drove to the place, helped me with my shopping, provided advice on other activities. And you must not miss a horseback ride on the beach with her ! I went on a wonderful, full day trip through the jungle with Amelie, which was definitely the highlight of my stay.


I have already booked the house for two more weeks in June. Definitely a place you will want to come back to. Fabulous !

Private Paradise

  • 4 of 5
Stayed for 3 weeks. The Carribean side is so laid back and peaceful. We had one week of rain, but because of the spaciousness of the house we weren't uncomfortable or crowded (4 of us). The pictures of the house are bang on and Arlin, the caretaker, was exceptionally attentive and helpful with everything. We would definitely recommend this house because of the location, cleanliness, and quality of everything from linens to kitchen utensils. Close to beach, close to town and restaurants, and plenty of privacy.

Dream honeymoon destination

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I recently spent our honeymoon at Residencia Kenia and it was a dream come true. The house is gorgeous, luxurious, and unique. The caretaker, Arlin, was terrific-- we were well cared for and still had tons of privacy. The property manager helped us to arrange in-house massages, a fancy gourmet dinner prepared by a Cordon-Bleu chef, and delicious daily breakfasts. The house is close enough to town to bike there easily, but far enough away to feel secluded and quiet. We walked down to the Banana Azul hotel frequently to hang out on the beach, and the hotel staff were all very accommodating and friendly (they even let us open a tab since we were staying at Casa Kenia). Overall, we recommend the place very highly and we hope very much to return one day!

Absolutely Awesome Girlfriend Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Three girlfriends in this absolutely beautiful house doesn't get any better! We each had our own bedroom which was perfect. Arling, the caretaker is truly awesome. Wanted to pack him in a bag and take him home with us. Landscaping is beautiful. Got a lot of great pictures right in the yard. Very private and secure. Lovely areas to congregate in at the end of the day. Took a little getting used to all the geckos in the house because of the open concept, but they don't bother you. Very close to the beach, and a bike ride to town only takes about 20 minutes! I will have long lasting and fond memories of our stay there.
