Indoor Luxury

The "bow and arrow" design of the house -- with the bow as the house and the arrow as the entry ramp and bridge -- affords complete privacy to the large sunken courtyard terrace with pool and all rooms.  Air-conditioned interior spaces open to the ocean views, as well as a large exterior covered loggia that functions as an outdoor living room, to enjoy Costa Rica’s famous warm and mild weather while being protected from the equatorial sun.

The villa provides views for all primary spaces: a salon large enough for a dining table and a bar; three family bedrooms; three guest bedrooms; two private studies; and the kitchen.  This was achieved by curving the house in a semi-circle around a radial point in front of the bridge, so that each room has a slightly shifted view of the ocean to the west and headlands visible to the north and south.  Media room/home theater; the gym; laundry room; and a two-bedroom caretaker apartment with separate entrance and mechanical systems, located beneath the two garages.

The master bedroom suite is entered from the main terrace, the loggia, or through one of the master studies via a private reading room. A unique feature of the master suite is a completely private, sunken Zen garden with an outdoor shower, which opens off the master bathroom. This creates an exotic retreat in which to bathe and relax.
