Private secluded luxury at a gorgeous 2 story villa at Playa Tortuga (near Ojochal, south of Dominical and Uvita), with ocean and mountain views, balconies and terraces, and private luxurious swimming pool and patio, master bath with raised sunken whirlpool tub with ocean view.
This ocean-view villa has breathtaking views of the ocean to the front, and the lush rainforest to the rear and sides. Its name is Canto Del Mar (Song of the Sea, Ridge of the Sea) because you can hear the roar of the ocean every night as the waves rush in. It is located at the very end of a beautiful ridge jutting out into the sea, about 300 feet above the ocean, so the home is far cooler and breezier than anything below.
Just minutes from the beach! Less than five-minute drive from beach access points to about five beautiful unspoiled beaches, each with its unique character, some with sea caves.
This is a newly constructed, spacious two-story furnished home, where you and your friends/family can bask in the luxury of having your own PRIVATE swimming pool, large covered and uncovered patio areas, and covered balcony. No neighbors in sight!
Beautiful ocean views from top and bottom floors and from pool. (home is nearly 3000 square feet, plus 1000 sf patio space).
The home is finished throughout with beautiful tropical hardwoods. The master bedroom upstairs is enormous, with a huge king bed fashioned out of the local tropical woods, soaring vaulted ceilings, and French doors opening onto your own private balcony with ocean vista.
The upstairs rooms and balcony are of beautiful tropical hardwood. The master bedroom upstairs is enormous, with a king-size bed, and very high wooden cathedral ceiling culminating in a starpoint design, with five ceiling fans and chandeliers. This huge room has a separate sitting area with a convertible pull-out sofa bed and table, perfect for sleeping another two guests if you wish to sleep 8 rather than 6.
There is a long wraparound balcony wrapping completely around the house. The upstairs balcony features three ceiling fans, comfortable lounging chairs, a table, and a hammock, for your sunset viewing (or watching the toucans and monkeys).
The large master bath upstairs has an oversized glass-block shower, and a large whirlpool Jacuzzi bathtub set in tile, with a great view of the ocean from your bath! The open-style glass block shower also has a great ocean view while you shower.
The downstairs has an open layout, with breezes blowing straight through from the porch through the kitchen, dining area and sitting area, and is tiled throughout. There are two private bedrooms there, one on each wing of the house, each with its own private bath, separate entrance, and pool/patio access.
Each of the three bedrooms has a ceiling fan, a floor fan, tables, bedside lamps, and a tall cedar wardrobe with drawers and hangers. All of the beds are big king and queen beds, with new thick comfortable mattresses, lots of pillows, and extra sheets and blankets. The house is fully equipped with linens, towels and more.
The kitchen is fully equipped with new appliances: stove, spacious refrigerator, microwave oven, blender, coffee maker, toaster. It has everything that you need to cook your meals in every day if you choose: pots, pans, cooking utensils, cups, mugs, glasses, wine glasses, silverware, placemats. The laundry area has a full-sized new washer and dryer, open to the cooling breezes and lush foliage outdoors.
From your front door, you step right onto a covered, tiled front porch with a glass dining table and chairs, perfect for taking your meals in the outdoor breezes, with an ocean view. The patio roof makes this area perfect for enjoying the rains also; indoor-outdoor living at its best, regardless of the weather. From the porch, you step onto an enormous natural-slate patio, and an elegant fully-tiled kidney-shaped swimming pool, with lounge chairs. The pool features built in benches and a full-length sun lounger, all fully tiled in tones of green, with bronze glass mosaic tiles.
Other amenities include pool rafts, an iron, a hairdryer, lamps and in all rooms, about twenty ceiling fans throughout the house, and an elegant tropical decor.
High speed internet (512 mb) included. You must bring your own pc. Use of a 3G cell phone is also included in your rental!
As you watch the wildlife, and see and listen to the breaking surf, you will feel like you are hundreds of miles away from everything. However, this is a great, convenient location, less than one km off of Costanera highway, very near lots of great gourmet international restaurants.

I'm from New Orleans and started coming to Costa Rica about 10 years ago. The beaches are spectacular here, but I found that it was the diverse wildlife and the laid-back 'pura vida' lifestyle that kept bringing me back!
I completed the construction of this beautiful new home in 2009. I first started coming to this beautiful part of Costa Rica ten years ago, and fell in love with the natural secluded surroundings, the gorgeous beaches, and the teeming wildlife. I don't think that there is any part of Costa Rica that quite compares with the Southern Pacific.
