Brand-new one of a kind luxurious estate located only 300 meters from the palm-fringed Caribbean.

This African-inspired designer villa, aptly named Residencia Kenia, has been crafted with a meticulous attention to detail.

Two bedrooms privately located in separate wings of the main house offer en-suite bathrooms, walk in closets, and king-sized beds. The master bathroom adds a large double vanity, dressing area, separate shower, and an in-ground outdoor Jacuzzi for unwinding in style or relaxing to the jungle sounds by candlelight. For guests wanting a bit more privacy, the third en-suite king-sized bedroom is located in a poolside bungalow. All the beds are equipped with mosquito nets.

The center of the house is a massive open-air dining and entertaining area, including a comfortable lounge, full-size billiards table, and dining for 8. The lounge and dining room communicate with a fully equipped gourmet kitchen offering a four-burner commercial grade gas range oven, blender, large refrigerator and freezer, blender, toaster, and coffee pot.

Amenities include Wi-Fi Internet, a safe, and a washer & dryer. For active guests, the rental includes 6 beach bikes. Live-in staff housed in a separate caretakers quarters provides security, housekeeping, landscaping.

A full perimeter fence ensures privacy and security though it's camouflaged by lush landscaping. Private parking is accessed by a remote-controlled electric gate.

Residencia Kenia was designed for style, comfort, convenience, and privacy. The temperature inside stays comfortable day and night as it was specially designed to stay cool using concrete construction and an open-air design to catch the Caribbean breezes. You have to see the house to appreciate the quality textiles, artistic design, and luxurious simplicity incorporated throughout the property.

Details about the house and the area :

Costa Rica has a tropical climate and is known for its biodiversity. The main characteristics of a tropical area are high humidity throughout the year, lush vegetation and tropical insects. Please be aware that you will probably encounter some of those during your stay!

High humidity makes moisture an issue. We opted for an open-air built house allowing a constant ventilation avoiding moisture and bringing a cool temperature inside the house. Consequently, the house does not have glass windows, and no front door.

About security :

The house is surrounded by a full perimeter fence and access is made through an electric wooden gate. There is a full time guard living in a caretaker house inside the perimeter. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood, so is not totally isolated. The 3 bedrooms can be locked with keys, and the office has a safe, to which you will get keys and code.

Please do not hesitate to ask any more questions, we will be happy to answer!

Wonderful house, very private

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house last month with just one other couple for a week and were extremely satisfied with it. We could have easily housed 6 people but we had 2 back out last minute.

The house and landscaping were beautiful and actually exceeded our expectations based on the photos. We spent every morning and every night in the private pool. We were told by people from the area that it is the nicest house in the area. Very secure and safe. All the bedrooms provided ample privacy when with a group.

The cleaning service they had came in every other day to change linens. The caretaker Clementino was there to take care of everything we needed and Amelie and Claudine handled some special requests we had to add to our experience. They helped arrange to have a private chef come to the house to prepare a meal (as a surprise to me) for my birthday while we were there. Junior was definitely a character and cooked one great meal.

We spent time a lot of time in town and went to Punta Uva and Manzanillo as well. There are some very good restaurants in town, we went to Bread and Chocolate twice for breakfast and Cafe Rico as well.

The Banana Azul is walking distance and allowed us to use their beach facilities and restaurant also. They have great 2 for one drink specials every day.

We have only been back home for 4 days but I would pack up and go back in an instant if i could.

Casa Kenia we truly enjoyed our stay

  • 5 of 5

This house is everything that we expected. Amelie was a wonderful host and very accommodating for our needs for the four days we stayed in Puerto Viejo. We arrived in Puerto Viejo late on our arrival date, but she stayed at the house till we arrived and provided us a warm greeting and a tour of the house and grounds, More than enough space for two couples and could have had a third stay there as well with the extra room by the pool.

Yes, the pictures do justice for this property . . . it was exactly what I had imagined before our arrival. Beautifully appointed home and the extra amenities (especially the washer and dryer) was very helpful, as well as the on site caretaker.

We were a little disappointed by the lack of use of the ceiling fan in the master suite, but Amelie provide an extra fan from her home which was helpful. Bikes were provided to ride into town (about a 10 minute ride), but I would recommend walking to Banana Azul (about a 5 minute walk from the house) to get a taxi at night.

We could have explored Puerto Viejo more, but had a wonderful time during our stay, and look forward to the day that we return again. Thank you Amelie for such a great property.

A Memorable Experience

  • 5 of 5

Truly an experience to stay in this home. Many locals consider it the most beautiful home you can rent in Puerto Viejo. Care takers are onsite and provide an immaculate home to come home to, meals and always a friendly smile. Security was never an issue in this gated property. Everything is a short drive and I would highly recommend this home to anyone wanting to visit Puerto Viejo. My teenager even loved having his own pad by the pool. Flip Flop & Mopri are great places to eat. Hanging out at Casa Kenia, Zip-lining, Jaguar Rescue Center and Punta Uva beach are great activities. Carmon Air is also an excellent charter service and can accommodate any schedule. Ameile and Claudine were amazing and can arrange for anything you desire. Pictures do not do this place justice.

Romantic Honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

Wow. The pictures don't do this place justice. My wife and I were awestruck when we entered. The house was exactly what we were looking for. It was private, luxurious, relaxing, & close to the town of Puerto Viejo. Our care taker was awesome. After a long day at the beach or seeing the town, we'd come back to a clean house with fresh fruit.

Amelie was also amazing. Make sure to check out her horse tour on the beach. Definitely our favorite part of the trip.

We would highly recommend this place to anyone. Next time, we'll come with two other couples. Plenty of space, great price. Would make for a good time.

Thanks for having us Amelie! See you next time.

Simply Amazing Villa in Puerto Viejo

  • 5 of 5

We chose Residencia Kenia to celebrate our honeymoon and were delighted with our stay. It is an exceptional property in the area and expertly decorated and maintained. We were treated to an open air villa, private pool, jacuzzi, game room, etc. The caretakers keep the property immaculately maintained each day. They also offer a breakfast service which is very nice. The property is gated and very secure. We had access to a private stretch of beach as well. Puerto Viejo is a very short drive or bike away. And yes, there are bicycles to use free of charge at the property as well as boogie boards and other fun stuff. The property manager and caretakers were very friendly, professional, and knowledgeable of the area. I highly recommend Residencia Kenia if you are looking for an exceptional stay in Puerto Viejo.

A wonderful place to take the family!

  • 5 of 5

Our family, six adults and two children under three years, welcomed the New Year in one of the most glorious accommodations in Costa Rica! From the moment we arrived, we felt comfortable, safe and happy! Amalie welcomed us with warmth and gave us many suggestions for activities, restaurants and general information about the area. We were able to easily walk to the beach every day. We can't say enough about the beautiful, African-themed accommodations!! The youngest was still crawling, and he had plenty of room to practice! The open construction allowed us to feel as if we were living in one of the rain forests of CR. We all enjoyed the pool at the end of each day. The caretakers were on the grounds to assist us in ALL matters and even prepared us a wonderful breakfast. We would HIGHLY recommend Casa Kenia to all ages.
