Sporting spectacular sightlines along Costa Rica’s incredible southern Pacific coastline, Villa la Luna is the ultimate tropical getaway destination.
This fantastic 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom villa wrapped up construction in October 2015, and the results are nothing short of breathtaking. From ultramodern amenities to 180-degree ocean views from all over the house, a Costa Rican vacation at Villa la Luna is paradise personified.
Located on the mountainside community of Escaleras, approximately 1,250 feet above sea level and just 20 minutes from the beaches of Dominical, Villa la Luna features sweeping views of the world famous “Whale’s Tail” reef at Bahia Ballena National Park, fresh fruit trees dotting the property that are ripe for the picking, a 30-foot Balinese-inspired swimming pool, and intimate privacy for you and all of your guests.
As you enter the villa’s electronic gate, a manicured driveway leads to the home and its spacious 2-car garage. Walk through the handcrafted wooden doors and be prepared to be blown away by the villa’s completely modern feel and cool ocean breezes.
The kitchen is spacious and fully equipped to prepare meals for friends and family, with all types of cooking utensils, a large counter top and sitting area, stove, microwave and dishwasher for easy cleanup. A large, gas barbecue is stationed next to an outdoor wooden table near the pool, and serves as an ideal location to grill fresh fish and sip on cold drinks while catching up on all those conversations that may have slipped by with the passage of time.
With a shallow lounge section for young children or water chairs, as well as a deeper area for swimming laps, this swimming pool is one of the most user-friendly you’ll find in the region.
Each of the three bedrooms features an on-suite bathroom and shower, air conditioning unit and teak flooring. The master bedroom has a king bed, walk-in shower with full ocean view, a walk-in closet and flat-screen television. The second bedroom features a pair of double beds, TV with DVD player and pool access. Bedroom 3 has a double bed with an ocean view, too.
There is wireless internet throughout Villa la Luna, and a 60-inch flat-screen beams sports, news and entertainment programs via SKY satellite television. The home also has a washer and dryer unit and a large sofa lounger in the front room.
One of the best things about Villa la Luna — besides the incredible sightlines and abundant wildlife, from white-faced monkeys to tucans — is its proximity to the towns of Dominical and Uvita, both of which are less than a 20-minute drive from the front door. In those towns you’ll find grocery stores, souvenir shops, pharmacies, restaurants, beaches with lifeguards and much more. And, of course, there’s also Bar Jolly Roger just 3 minutes down the dirt road, where you can purchase great food, cold libations and hear live music.
If the sounds of howler monkeys in the morning and taking in rainbow sunsets in the evening seem like the perfect itinerary for your next vacation, consider a stay at Villa la Luna. You’ve worked hard for it, so you might as well shoot for the moon.
