Take in gorgeous views in every direction at Villa Estrella. Set on a hilltop in the beachside community of Ocotal in Guanacaste, the seven-bedroom villa looks out over volcanic mountains, jungle and the island-dotted waters of the Gulf of Papagayo and the Pacific. With the beach a short walk away and meals and transport included, all you have to do is relax and enjoy.
Your stay at Villa Estrella includes meals and snacks, a private beach club and gym membership and a van and driver for local transportation, so you’re free to enjoy the beautiful infinity pool with ocean views. There’s room to lounge, read and dine on the covered terrace, and a barbecue is available if you wish to cook. Gather in the home theater to watch a movie or play pool, or stay connected via the computer, iPod dock and DSL internet. Baby equipment is available for the youngest guests.
The villa’s airy, welcoming living spaces blur the line between indoors and out. In the open-plan living room, a wicker sofa and palm-print upholstery are nods to the jungle surroundings, while a glass wall folds back to open the space to the outdoor terrace. Lush potted plants tucked throughout the living areas make them feel nearly as vibrant as the landscape. The spacious kitchen features a center island with a breakfast bar.
There are three bedrooms on the ground floor of Villa Estrella and four on the second floor; all have en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning and ceiling fans. The ground-floor master suite has a king bed and is handicap-accessible; on the same floor you’ll find another bedroom with a king bed and one bedroom with two twin beds. Upstairs, there’s one bedroom with a king bed, two bedrooms with queen beds and one bedroom with four bunks on two bunk beds.
From the villa, the nearest beach is a 15-minute walk or a 5-minute drive. It’s also a 5-minute drive to a tennis court and a 10-minute drive to the closest town and grocery store. A 45-minute drive will bring you to a hospital, and a 60-minute drive will bring you to a golf course. An airport transfer is included in your stay, and the international airport in Liberia is about 45 minutes away.

*ADDITIONAL INFORMATION The views from
Villa Estrella are absolutely breathtaking. From its premier hilltop position, guests look out westerly over the warm blue waters of the Gulf of Papagayo, Monkey Rock and Witches Rock, Catalina and Bat Islands, and the coastal peninsula on which the Four Seasons Resort is located. Look directly down at the Beach of Ocotal and you'll see the fishing and scuba charters pick up their passengers in the early morning and return in the mid-afternoon. To the north, east and south, enjoy the incredible views of volcanic mountains and nearby jungles.
Villa Estrella is perfectly situated for guests to enjoy swimming, scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, and sailing in the pristine waters of the Gulf of Papagayo. Centrally located in the Guanacaste region, guests can also easily venture out each day in different directions to experience the various pleasures of jungle canopy tours, mud baths, horseback riding, white water river rafting, pristine surfing beaches, and nearby local villages. The Village of Coco, for example, is just five minutes away and it boasts a variety of restaurants and local shops. After sunset, Coco's nightlife comes alive with vibrant bars, discos, and even a casino.

My family recently stayed at Villa Estrella for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. We have been lucky enough to have taken some fabulous vacations but this one topped them all. From the gorgeous house & the stunning views to the fabulous food & amazing staff everything was perfect.
The staff was a huge part of what made our trip so memorable. They were attentive & available without being on top of us & fulfilled every need & wish. Even a last minute flavor change on a birthday cake! The food was wonderful & they went above & beyond to make sure all our requests were met &, in most cases, exceeded.
I own a catering company so I am very aware of service. If I could have taken the staff back to Austin to work with us I would have. They were absolutely superb & a huge part of why our trip was so flawless. If you have a chance to book this villa do it, you'll be in for an incredible vacation!
The vacation was exactly what we were hoping it would be. The house was beautiful and the staff was 5 star. Every detail was planned perfectly!
The Villa Estrella was even more impressive being there,the staff was so friendly and more than eager to cater to any whim we may have had and usually anticipated what we would want before we did. The setting was exceptional, the country was beautiful, friendly, clean and grateful that we spent our vacation getting to know Costa Rica. There were eleven of us at the Villa and each of us felt that the staff was catering to our special wants.
We had a wondefull time during our stay at Villa Estrella. The house was very comfortable, food consisted mostly of local dishes prepared very nicely but far from Gourmet. Staff was acommodating to an extent (Mitchel, Eduardo, Victor and Eliezer particularly nice people)but they had a difficult time acommodating to our request particularly of late dinners. We also did not appreciate the fact that bed linens where never changed during our 7 night stay. View from the house was spectacular but location is a bit removed from most area attractions, therefore we ended up doing a lot of driving to get to attractions such as surfing, zip lining, etc..It is ideal though for rest and relaxation!
This was a total positive family experience. It was the ultimate of professionalism from the initial inquiry about the rental to our return trip to the airport.
Everyone was dedicated to make it the trip of a lifetime and could not have been more accommodating and interested in fulfilling our every wish.
The Villa was perfect for the twelve of us. The entire staff, from the driver, housemaids, cooks, bartender and managers were totally committed to make sure the Gauthier family was totally satisfied with each and every moment of our stay.
It will be something that all of us will never forget and relive everytime we get together. I can highly recommend each and every person envolved with the venture.
