A three minute walk to the beautiful beach of Punta Islita. 2008/2009 "Worlds Best" Central American spot.
My family has been coming to Punta Islita for 15 years! We now own a few properties there and spend over three months of the year in our villa. It is a truly special place that we love dearly.
Ideal for families, Casa Luna (house of the moon), is just a few minute stroll on a private beach path. Designed by award winning architect Ronald Zucher (The Four Seasons Costa Rica), the house is a blend of beautiful comfort and natural beauty. It sits on acre of wonderfully landscaped property (papaya and banana tress abound) and looks out on a majestic mountain and a natural growth forest that borders a small river. Hopefully while you're there you will witness, from the huge private outside deck, the moon rise over the mountain hence the name of the house.
The bathrooms have fabulous outdoor showers that everyone loves. The villa furnishings are very unique and truly costa rican made from bamboo and fallen guanacaste trees. There is a queen blow up mattress and two futons in the living room to add more sleeping capacity.
Enjoy gourmet meals, a world class spa, fishing, kayaking, tennis (all available for a fee by guests staying at casa luna) and some of the best uncrowded surfing spots in Costa Rica. Camaronal (an amazing beach break) is just a ten min drive away!) Average water temp is 84 degrees Fahrenheit. average air temp is 85F day and 68F night. Par 3 golf course, in the pristine beauty of hanging orchids, howler monkeys, parrots, toucans, wild macaws (a new addition) all around. Please see the hotel Punta Islita website. Truly amazing place!
This is one of only four recognized sites in the entire world noted as a "Blue Zone" by National Geographic- One of the most healthful places on the globe to live a long happy ilfe. After a week here you will not want to leave. The slow paced stress free environment will keep you coming back.

Fifteen years ago my father and mother arrived in Punta Islita and fell in love with its charm and beauty. Five months later they had purchased a house. Now they own a few properties in Punta Islita, one of which is their private villa. The people who work in the small town of Islita and the hotel are some of the kindest people you will ever meet. The pace of life is slow and stress free. It takes only but a moment to feel like you are on a truly special vacation. We have made life long friends there. And of course there is the natural beauty of the valley and the animals that live there. It is all owned by the hotel so development is limited which is great and a rare thing to find these days. The ocean cove and beach are safe and special.
Wildlife abounds, quiet and peaceful location. ocean breeze and sounds of waves while sleeping.
"Zip" line and forest canopy tour are located at hotel, about 4 minutes away by car or golf cart. Or a 10 to 15 min walk.
