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.  

Description

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.     

This home is also FOR SALE on Boutique Homes

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Concierge services and full staff with optional private chef, yoga, spa and massage services available. Wifi throughout with Plasma TV and DVD home entertainment and Air+Play iPod audio system, land line telephone. Daily housekeeping with laundry facilities, parking. Airport transfers available. The home is totally solar powered.

AROUND

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.

    My wife and I spent a week here in early 2016.

    We both work in design, and she comes from a family of architects… I don’t know if that makes us any more qualified than your average person to judge how liveable a space is but I will say that your place is very cool and very impressive. I’ve made it my little hobby these past years tracking architecturally interesting spaces around the world where we can go on vacation, and we’ve stayed in some pretty cool spots across Spain, Germany, Scandinavia… of all those, Lunatica is my favorite by far. It’s a really special place and some of the details are just incredibly smart and well picked. Also, Belen and the staff were great.

    For fans of white minimalism, the house is an exciting and audacious execution of the style. The views, especially from the pool, are sweeping, ambitious, exciting. The interior spaces are grand and high, featuring beautifully executed geometric designs. What makes the place special though is that design never overwhelms the fact it must become a home, a nice place to be. The texture of the materials is tactile and nice to the touch, the spaces are playful and inviting, the use of light is well thought out and makes the everyday experience of being there easy and pleasurable.

    Massive congratulations to the architect, it’s a very special place, we’re already planning a return visit

    Oh my, this place is P-A-R-A-D-I-S-E! I don’t think there are words to describe the glory of this home. Certainly the pictures are nice but you have to experience it to know how fabulous Lunatica Lounge is. When greeted by Belen, Giovanni and Sucretia you know from the start anything you need, if available, will be there soon.. Need some quality beef? Belen is on it. Want a red snapper caught that morning but don’t want to go get it at dawn – Belen is on it. Dinner reservations, ideas for activities? All was readily available. Fresh chocolate croissants with breakfast, Giovanni is happy to go pick them up; clothes cleaned, Sucretia does it effortlessly so you have no idea it is being done. Our family was extremely comfortable, sated and we spent a week luxuriating at this classy and casual villa. WI-fi worked flawlessly. Music on ‘air’ devices worked flawlessly. The A/C, pool, and kitchen worked flawlessly. The view is phenomenal. The areas for massage, yoga, reading and relaxing were all private when needed, cozy when wanted and with a view we have never before experienced. If I had one complaint, it was at some point we had to leave and that was a drag. I have rented places all over the world, none have gone as well and exceeded my expectations as Ralf has in handling our reservation, delivering a luxurious vacation rental, staffed appropriately! Thanks, we hope to be back!!

    Superb house in a superb setting. Lunaticalounge is elegant and chill at the same time. Gorgeous inside and out. We’ve rented villas all over the world and can say definitively that this lovely spot ranks among the highest. Not to mention the superb infinity pool. If you’re heading for Nicoya – this is THE place to go. It’s close to Montezuma’s funky center but when you cross the ravine and head up the hill, you feel a million miles away. Lovely cove beaches lure you down to the water, but the house pulls you back up. PERFECT vacation.

    We are experienced Costa Rican travelers and have been to Montezuma probably a half dozen times over the years. We love the funky town, great restaurants and amazing beaches. Upon arriving to Luna Tica Lounge, our group was so amazed with the property, setting and views that we actually decided to trim back our plans and just spend as much time as could at the villa. The property has so many design details and clever touches that you’d think you entered the featured property at an architectural expo. At the same time, the breezes, views and privacy were so impressive and everyone in our commented that the place made our Montezuma experience the best yet. Highly recommendable rental!

    Travel for me these days means renting beautiful houses around the world. I do this a few times a year and, by far, Lunatica Lounge is the most beautiful that I have come across. The pictures reflect the stunning architecture but it doesn’t show how at peace the grounds and the surrounding area will make you feel. It doesn’t show the wide variety of wild life that you might catch a glimpse of as you sit and look out at the rain forest.

    I highly recommend having Chef James prepare his amazing gourmet meals. The managers, Lisavette and Billy were more than helpful in making sure that we completely enjoyed our stay. This was the perfect vacation!

    The only way I was able to come to grips with leaving this wonderful place was to plan a return visit as soon as possible.

    Just a short note to let you know how much we loved our vacation at Lunatica Lounge. The house is magnificent, actually better than the pictures we saw, and the place is great for a fun vacation. We all want to thank you for sharing it with us. We loved the setting, the views, the town on Montezuma. Your concierge was most helpful with all of our requests. We hope to come back some time in the future.

    LUNATICAlounge is an amazing vacation rental. Set in beautiful Costa Rica, with the jungle all around. Monkeys visiting at 4:00 pm every day. Iguanas walking around all over. Sunrises that won’t allow anyone to “wake up on the wrong side of bed”. Add the beautiful bird sounds and espresso to those sunrises for the ingredients of a wonderful day. The house, the pool, and the jungle setting is absolutely lovely and rejuvenating. It’s in a great location for exploring as well. You’re 5 minutes from the Butterfly Gardens, where some waterfalls are. You’re only 10 minutes from Montezuma and 30 minutes from Mal Pais and Santa Theresa. We had a wonderful time, thank you.

    Think of those glossy magazine articles with impossibly beautiful people in impossibly beautiful places…in Lunatica Lounge, that’s you! The grand scale, the style; you’re almost thankful for the semi-challenging drive from town because it keeps out the papparazi. This was a perfect space to chill with friends, spend hours in and around the sparkling pool, read a book, tease the monkeys or turn up the music and dance. The lovely folk who took care of all the household stuff were cheerful, unobtrusive and faultless. In a way, Lunatica Lounge is too nice. Almost everything else you’ll experience in Costa Rica will be, at best, at least one notch down.
