WHAT WE LIKE ABOUT THIS PROPERTY
We love the avant-garde geometric minimalism here that’s sleek and modern but laid back and very playful. From the massive scale of the interiors and clever design details, to the angular wrap pool with stunning views, this is a dramatic and atmospheric architectural achievement that’s as exciting as it is relaxing.
Perched within the jungle with stunning treetop views on over three acres overlooking Montezuma’s Playa de Las Manchas, this bold and modern villa is located in the ultimate top-of-the-world location. Designed in two separate wings, the property is an eye catching architectural statement placed within a peaceful tropical habitat where you’ll share the treetop location with the monkeys, birds and jungle wildlife and magical views from throughout the property. With loads of surprising and fun detail and atmospheric elements, the two structures are a beautifully realized pastiche of interconnecting geometric angles and spaces that don’t play by the rules. The main wing features a massive open air living space with slide away glass and dramatic structural angles that are powerful without being overwhelming. Vast and open to the environment, the great room with lounge and dining areas is ideal for entertaining with a chefs kitchen and intimate areas for relaxing. There are two en suite bedrooms upstairs each with eye catching and imaginative bath options including an enclosed glass tube rain shower and one of a kind fixtures, finishes and detail. The side wing shares the wrap around pool edge and is a spacious open air environment that includes an en-suite bedroom with bold and colorful underlit bath and lounge area downstairs and an additional en-suite bedroom upstairs with breathtaking views.
The grounds are punctuated by colorful sculptural accents and the arc of the infinity pool that connects and communicates with the two structures and lit with dramatic accent lighting that casts light and shadows.
Exciting and original, this property is a wholly unique and stylish modern escape in the wild beauty of Costa Rica.

The house is a ten minute ride to the funky and picturesque coastal town of Montezuma and just north of famous Manuel Antonio National Park renown for its offshore islands, abundant wildlife and stunning white sand beaches. Laid back and very informal, it’s an artsy boho kind of place to slow your pace. Located along the Nicoya Peninsula’s eastern coast it’s just a half hour from the Pacific coast surfing towns of Mal Pais and Santa Theresa, and part of the southern peninsula’s ‘triangle of fun.’ The southern Nicoya Peninsula is a particularly blessed corner of Costa Rica. Due to its relative remoteness it has retained the vibrant beauty of nature unspoiled by over-development with world class surf breaks and beaches and the protected Cabo Blanco Reserve at the tip. Tortuga Island makes for a great day trip and is under an hour north to the ferry.
