About Lila

Growing up in Africa and living in Belgium for 17 years, I then traveled to Costa Rica in 2009 and fell in love with this country's enchanting nature, it's kind and welcoming friendly people, and most of all I succumbed to the enticing ocean and joy of surfing it's precious waves. My heart and mind were set on creating a new life for myself... I moved here in 2009, and a couple years later I bought this property and built a beautiful home that I now rent to travelers from around the world. I hope to be able to host you one day and share this spot in paradise with you. Pura vida!

Lila purchased this villa in 2011

Why Lila chose Puntarenas

This property was amongst the first I visited in my search for the land to build my future home and vacation rental. Every other property paled in comparison to the epic views and amazing location.

What makes this villa unique

The panoramic ocean view ranges from the point break of Mar Azul to the beaches of Playa Carmen and Banana beach. You can watch the surf from every room or deck in the house or while taking a dip in our spectacular coralina infinity pool.

We are a 3 minute drive to the beach and town center with it's restaurants, bank and supermarkets but just far enough up the hill to benefit from the peace and quiet of the pristine surrounding nature and it's enchanting sounds and sights.

Unforgettable.

  • 5 of 5

Having been all over Costa Rica and loving every bit of its natural and native beauty, I was elated to find my then boyfriend had booked a Valentine's get-away to Malpais. I prefer rainforests and mountain tops to beaches so though I was looking forward to getting away with the man of my dreams, I really wasn't expecting much more than a few days of lounging on the beach with a cocktail in each hand. Let's just say my expectations were blown out of the water when my boyfriend proposed to me on Valentine's Day with a culinary chef, professional photographer and a lovely singer on hand to help create the most unforgettably romantic backdrop that included our dearest friends. And who helped orchestrate this incredible feat? Lila. And it didn't end there. She helped us make the most of our stay by recommending the best restaurants and off-shore diversions such as deep sea fishing and scuba diving. Loved it ,and best of all, I'm now engaged to my best friend. Did I mention the natural alarm clock called Howler Monkeys that would visit us every morning right outside our window? You'll see :D

Fabulous all the way around!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Costa Rica. It was an amazing home! The view is unbeatable! I asked my fiancé to marry me in this home and actually was able to hire a chef to come cook a gourmet dinner for eight people because the kitchen and sitting areas are so big and open. The infinity pool is a plus. I have to say every thing was perfect and unforgettable. Lila, the owner to the home is super human. She helped me organize the entire trip! Any thing I needed she found and helped me put it together! If you do decide to rent this home, don't hesitate to ask her for help with any part of your vacation! She is awesome! It made the trip that much more special! Thanks Lila

WOW!!

  • 5 of 5

I really have a hard time describing just how wonderful the house and property were. We had our entire family of 5 and my parents with us and there is plenty of room. The view from the bedrooms and showers is fantastic. The pool is relaxing and there is nothing like lounging in the pool with a cold drink and listening to the waves crashing on the beach. If you are looking for a laid back community that opens it's arms to welcome guests and has many places to relax and several very secluded beaches, this is it.

I am already planning our next trip, but with three other couples to share this awesome house with. Lila was great and had lots to offer as far as what to do and where to go in the area.

Thanks for a GREAYT time!!

The perfect spot in mal pais / santa Teresa

  • 5 of 5

This house really made our trip.

The views while having breakfast in the living room or during sunset while sipping a cocktail in the pool just made our trip! We hosted a big dinner after the owner arranged a fishing trip for us which topped any expectations. The kitchen is very well equiped and the house keepers are on it! We will be back next year!

Perfect Place in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time here. The house is amazing, the views from anywhere are spectacular. You are in the middle of the rain forrest with panoramic views of the water, you can hear the waves and even the monkeys. This place is magical and I would recommend it to anyone, couples, families, group of friends or a small business retreat.

The owner is so helpful and friendly, she set up massages at the house for us, recommended great places to eat, visit, surf.
