Guanacaste Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10-11)

Hidden among the trees on a private piece of beach on Playa Negra is a luxurious house with five bedrooms with three king-size and two queen-size beds—Villa Caramar.

The living area is a twenty-two-foot high atrium with a stainless steel bridge linking the two sides of the second floor above. The first floor has two master suites with two bathrooms,inside and outside showers, and library with computer, Wi-Fi, and books. The media area has television and DVD player. The dining area features a long trestle table seating ten to twelve people. The kitchen offers Sub-Zero refrigerator, extra fridge, DCS stove, granite counters,dish washer, and wine cooler.

On the same level as the first floor is the pool deck which overlooks the ocean. It features a trapezoidal swimming pool with a double infinite edge plus deck chairs, loungers, table,and grill. Monkeys and birds visit the pool on a regular basis. On the lower level is a gym and ping pong room.

Ten to eleven people can enjoy Villa Caramar—there are five wonderfully-sized bedrooms. On the second level of the villa the bedrooms have spectacular views of the ocean and the surf break at Playa Negra from a wrap-around teak deck.

Villa Caramar is only thirty minutes from Tamarindo and an hour and ten minutes from the International Airport in Liberia.

Why Jon chose Guanacaste

Tranquil spot on one of Costa Rica's most famous beaches--you can relax in the infinite edge pool or walk out the house for a walk on the beach to great swimming and surfing. Always wonderful weather and spectacular sunsets

What makes this villa unique

Monkeys and birds visit the house virtually every day, but the foot traffic on the beach in front of the house is minimal--a few local fishermen, a couple of surfers or maybe some horseback riders. Yet we have a fantastic French restaurant right nearby and a couple of wonderful oceanfront bars and eating spots.

Perfect Rest and Relaxation Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation began the moment we entered the grand living room with ocean views through floor to ceiling glass with an amazing double infinity pool all on the same level. Most importantly, everything worked! WiFi enabled music and Internet and phone so everyone could chill out while being connected to the outside world when desirable. Beautiful grounds for a little walk by day and incredible stargazing from the pool at night. Our favorite times were in the dining room and outdoor grill area adjacent to pool enjoying great food in comfort. It was a quick ride into town for a day trip. We are looking forward to our trip back next year!

Quiet Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Villa Caramar has the most exquisite view. If you can't relax here, you can't relax anywhere. The home is spacious, well appointed and exceedingly comfortable. Surprisingly for such a remote location, we found amazing food, a fantastic massage therapist and yoga on the beach. We highly recommend a stay at Villa Caramar.

Dream Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this home immensely. The view was incredible, the location impeccable and the house felt like home. It has a casual, elegant feel with lots of room. My son commented that this home felt like it was "ours". Jon was easy to deal with and Gina was very helpful and friendly. The maid and gardner were also very nice and professional.

Short walk to the Playa Negra hotel to eat, and also highly recommend 1/4 mile drive to Villa DeVeena for dinner.

Playa Negra over New Years 2011

  • 5 of 5

Jon was very pleasant to deal with, each picture you see did not do any justice to his beautiful home. We stayed over New Years and had a truly marvelous time at this beach side villa. The surf was wonderful and views breath taking from each bedroom.

the villa was exactly as advertised, modern style with tasteful furnishings and amenities.

this was not your typical vacation spot, highly recommend for an adventurous family who enjoys the tranquility of ocean surf at night, unspoiled surroundings, and finer things.

Awesome home for family in Playa Negra

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here last spring break. It was our first time to Playa Negra but not Guanacaste. The home itself was spectacular. Amazing pool with a deck over looking the ocean, tons of privacy but a short walk to the hotel Playa Negra.

The home itself was large and modern with a nice garage, home gym and great room overlooking the pool. The town of PN is also very charming with many french proprietors operating cafes and restaurants.

The best part of this house however are the caretakers. Al and his girlfriend are in a guest house on the property and are very helpful with everything from showing the ins and outs of the house to suggesting spots in and around town for entertainment and eating.

Thanks again for sharing this great house!

My stay at Playa Negra was magnificant, Very luxurious, spacious, a perfect home in a perfect location. My wife and I loved all the amenities and surrounding area. The swimming pool is the nicest I have experienced, we spent many hours gazeing from the pool to the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The bedrooms, kitchen, and living areas are beautiful and luxurious. We plan to return, and we recommend it to our friends. Pure paradise.
