About Ryan Lewis
Buenos Dias! We first began traveling to Costa Rica before we even met and have since visited for several vacations. Living abroad was always something we had wanted to experience as a family and we finally had the opportunity to move there in the summer of 2014. The more simple, slower and tropical lifestyle of Costa Rica is contagious. Our two boys quickly adapted and attended the bi-lingual school located in our community of Mar Vista. We spent an incredible year and a half there while building our villa in partnership with internationally recognized architect, Scott Woods and Mar Vista developer and builder, Aaron Berkowitz. We had such a wonderful family experience learning Spanish, surfing and appreciating the tranquil energy of the culture. You may hear "Pura Vida" used frequently when you visit. This phrase literally means "pure life" but we hope you will find the magic within this phrase first hand. It is our pleasure to share our dream villa with you and your family and friends, just completed summer of 2016. Respectfully, Cynthia and Ryan
Ryan Lewis purchased this Estate in 2016
Why Ryan Lewis chose Brasilito
Villa Tropical is located in the heart of Guanacaste! This is the center of Costa Rica's most pristine white sand beaches and also referred to as the "Gold Coast" as it gets the least amount of rain. It is less than an hour drive from Liberia International Airport and located within the safe and secured development of Mar Vista. With 24 hour security, you can relax into your private paradise with ease.
What makes this Estate unique
The community has 2 clay tennis courts and a clubhouse that includes an additional infinity pool, bar, restaurant and children’s play area. Maid service is included and there is a gardener and service person that lives on the property in a separated lower room for your convenience.

One Item to Note:
We traveled with 4 adults and 6 kids. The home was listed properly for sleeping arrangements. The master is Amazing. The second bed and bath with the most privacy was the bedroom that is separate from the home. The bathroom and bedroom in this location has an outdoor feel and we experienced ants and bugs. Which the caretaker did try to spray for and the owner was more then responsive. This did not bother our crew. However, feel important to note if you are looking for two equivalent masters in a home. The two other bedrooms are upstairs with a shared bathroom and are very nice.
This house was wonderful and is exactly as the pictures display. We were two families for a total of 9 people and it never felt crowded. Unlike a lot of vacation homes, the kitchen is extremely well appointed and has everything you need for cooking, coffee, homemade ice cream, margaritas, etc. etc.. The beds are extremely comfortable, a must if you really want a relaxing vacation. Lazy mornings by the pool, afternoons spent at 6 different beaches for swimming/surfing and we always made it back to MarVista and the house for sunsets....each one better than the one before. The whole house Sonos allowed us to relax the night away as we sipped on cold Imperials and margaritas while pointing out constellations over the Pacific. The concierge, house keeper, etc. were all top-notch, and helped us with our Spanish. On our last day we spotted a crew of howler monkeys in a tree not far from the house, a real treat for our family! We found all the local "Ticos" to be very welcoming everywhere we went. Would recommend this house and MarVista without hesitation!! Pura Vida!!
Thank you so much for your review and glad you and your group had a wonderful time!
Ver nice, well stocked kitchen, wonderful showers, great pool, amazing view. Great retreat.
Enjoyed the house immensely. Close to a variety of a activities, local towns, beaches and grocery stores. You can choose to stay back and enjoy the pool, basketball court and view or venture out to see what Costa Rica has to offer.
Overall very nice property. Newer, clean.
Would be 5 star except a few items didn't work. Lights burned out in master bath (told cleaning staff but did not get fixed during stay) and also has a great kitchen but the ovens did not work. Too nice a place to have these problems not attended to. Concierge service from Tropical was superb!
Thank you for your review! We have been in touch with our property manager to ensure extra lights are always on site for a quick change. Regarding the ovens, we had the manufacturer's recommended part shipped to Costa Rica ahead of your stay, but it turned out to be the incorrect part. We are sorry for this inconvenience, but please know we put forth our best possible effort. Thanks again for your feedback and we hope to see you again soon!
You often see a beautiful house online and when you show up they're a bit disappointing. Pictures online aren't what reality is, amenities aren't what was promised. In the case of this Costa Rica villa nothing could be further from the truth.
This home is pristine in every aspect. Upon walking in you are swept away by the breathtaking views from the open concept kitchen and living room that open into the pool, yard and ultimately a beautiful water view. Sunsets are absolutely phenomenal here - sure to be your most liked Instagram image!
You can explore the culture around the home in Costa Rica or just stay in the house for the duration and either way you're sure to have one of the best trips of you life.
I'd recommend this place to anyone and can't wait to get back! Pura Vida!
Why don't I live here?
Have you ever been on vacation where you never wanted to leave the property? This house was very serene and perfectly situated for a large group. Amazing views of the pool and the ocean from every room. Everything you need, they had. The community had great amenities and the property was still very convenient to nearby beaches, grocery stores, and restaurants. This trip had my friends questioning whether we all needed to own a place like this together. For now I think we'll just come back here as often as we can!
