Fall under Costa Ricas spell at the enchanting Diosa del Mar. Owned by two world-renowned artists, the five-bedroom oceanfront villa in Guanacaste features both beautiful sunset views over the Pacific and magazine-worthy interiors. The white sands of Playa Blanca are just steps away, and the surf of Playa Negra is a short drive from the villa.
The heart of Diosa del Mar is a showstopping sixty-foot infinity pool overlooking the ocean. Relax by the pool in one of the lounge chairs, hammocks or on the daybed, or explore the sea with flotation devices and snorkeling equipment. Theres an outdoor shower for rinsing off and a gas grill for prepping dinner. In the evening, gather around thefireplace and browse via Wi-Fi, and stay comfortable thanks to air conditioned bedroomsand ceiling fans.
Gingerbread trim, beamed ceilings, white beadboard walls and dark wood floors give the villa charm and character, while floor-to-ceiling windows offer gorgeous ocean views. Low white leather sectionals provide plenty of seating in the living room, while brilliantly colored artwork is a unique, tropical touch. The dining rooms carved white chairs and striped cushions have a similarly relaxed, beachy feel, and a glass wall can be opened to let in the sea breeze. The modern kitchen pairs wood cabinets and counters with stainless steel appliances and beadboard ceilings.
The five bedrooms at Diosa del Mar have king beds, en-suite bathrooms, air conditioning and ceiling fans, as well as the same whitewashed walls, high ceilings and charming detail as the rest of the house. Striped bedding is a crisp nod to the seaside setting, while upholstered headboards in painterly fabrics inspire sweet dreams.
From the villa, its a short walk to either the white sands of Playa Blanca or a local restaurant. Its a 5-minute drive to Playa Negra or the Junquillal grocery store, a 10-minute drive to church and a 30-minute drive to the Pinilla golf course. A 40-minute drive brings you to the tennis club or airport in Tamarindo, a 45-minute drive brings you to the town of Santa Cruz, and downtown Liberia and its hospital are a 75-minute drive from the property.

We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay in CR. The view was absolutely spectacular, the villa is gorgeous and nicely layed out, and the beds were so comfortable. Our concierge was always available and so accommodating to all our needs. She helped us book our adventures and worked out any nuances as needed. We would love to come back and stay on our next visit. Thank you!
The five days were way too short! Beautiful property with personalized service, at a prime location. We enjoyed every minute staying at Diosa del Mar. Special thanks to on-site concierge Petra Willems, who assisted with Laura made our stay truly relaxing.
A group of myself and 10 other girls booked our Costa Rica vacation through Luxury Retreats and while organizing a trip with such a large party of girls is challenging in itself, Luxury Retreats left no detail overlooked. From the moment we arrived at the airport, all of our travel arrangements, excursions, and special requests were fulfilled and on time with precise accuracy. The moment we pulled up to our Villa at Diosa del Mar we felt like we were in paradise. Every room was beautiful, clean and even more spectacular in person than in the photos. We even requested a blender for the Villa that was sure enough on the counter for our arrival. From the surfing lessons to our action packed day of zip lining, water sliding, horseback riding, hiking and hot springs to our chef, yoga instructor and bar tender - everyone that we interacted with exceeded our expectations. In fact, we've already begun our search for our next vacation with Luxury Retreats!
Diosa del Mar is an experience that I would recommend to any friend.
The experience from the very beginning was delightful. From Michael Rassy right down to our concierge Claire. The transportation provided by our new friend Allen, and the dinners prepared by our French chef/housekeeper Lola (in American) were fantastic. Every aspect of the trip exceeded our expectations! We had one incident that put a damper on things for one person in our party, and minimally impacted a few others, but for the most part the trip was outstanding!
Dioso Del Mar, is a great place to stay, plenty of privacy, swimming within walking distance. Numerous beaches and small towns within 30 minute drive. The assistant on the property (Claire) will assure you have everything you need during your stay. Must visit towns such as Tamarindo and Flamingo.
