Costa Rica: Houses & Villas

Houses & Villas

Punto de Vista

With sweeping ocean views and situated on two and a half acres of tropical rain forest, Punto de Vista, a luxury vacation rental, offers world class accommodations to discerning private groups. The villa additionally offers event-sized spaces ideal for destination weddings, corporate meetings, yoga retreats, culinary retreats, or any other special occasion.

This Costa Rica villa, only a short walk to a golden sand beach, is a unique ten bedroom, twelve bath, iconic architectural design adjacent to world-renowned Manuel Antonio National Park and unlike any other of the Costa Rica vacation rentals in Manuel Antonio. The full-service, private luxury villa offers guests an intimate barefoot luxury setting more like a private yacht than a hotel. Services include a dedicated butler/concierge, twice-daily maid service, 24 hour security, maintenance and more. Costa Rican chefs prepare breakfast daily at the villa (breakfast included!) and the villa chef (as well as other and even celebrity chefs) can be arranged for exquisite lunches and dinners as desired.

Punto de Vista, “Point of View”, relates to the pointed, ship-like design of the villa as well as the spectacular views from this one-of-a-kind villa. The villa’s distinctive design is the work of the United States and European-trained architect, David Konwiser.
