Terming the phrase “Responsible Luxury” at Villa Mareas:
Villa Mareas is an idealistic corporate or private retreat property, boasting luxurious accommodations which are renowned for its luxury, both in design and function. Situated on 36 acres of primary and secondary rainforests, this iconic property is the ideal location for those who wish to preserve the rare and at-risk trees that are established on the estate, and those who wish to protect the vast wildlife that is flourishing and thriving in this location.
Carefully constructed at the end of the road in one of the most sought after locations in the Southern Pacific region of Costa Rica, Villa Mareas has done a remarkable and admirable job of protecting the primary rainforest that survived the clear cutting of 1970’s, and replanting countless indigenous hardwood trees, and thousands of fruit and flowering trees. A recent forestry study and wildlife survey has confirmed that Villa Mareas is a capsule in time of lush, rich rainforest and birds and animals that are in danger of losing their natural environment in neighboring communities.
Villa Mareas is bordered by a 200 acre preserve on its northern border which reaches much higher altitudes than this amazing estate property does. The preservation work and the commitment of the owners to ensure responsible management of this natural treasure has created a corridor for several bird and animal species, as well as a safe haven for the numerous species of birds, cats, and monkeys who thrive at this slightly lower altitude than the bordering 200 acre preserve.
The Main Villa rules over the estate with the class of an exotic country club. You are greeted by the vaulted mosaic barrel ceiling of the entryway, which leads you to the great room with its vaulted teak wood beam ceiling with chandelier. On the ground floor sits a sunken lounge area with handcrafted wooden bar, quiet reading nook, as well as indoor and outdoor dining areas. The professional kitchen is fully equipped with all appliances, granite countertops and dehumidified pantry. A covered BBQ grill area is connected to the outdoor dining area. The second floor holds two rooms, currently used as a spa room and office, as well as a yoga pavilion and ocean view area.
Extending out the sliding glass patio doors sits the mosaic tiled patio with loungers and sitting area, this is the optimal area to enjoy the sunset views. The 1,700 sq. ft. award winning infinity pool finished with glistening imported blue glass tiles features shallow “beach” sections, a calming waterfall, a Jacuzzi and an outdoor shower. The ocean view framed by the surrounding rainforest, which extends off the infinity pool, will make your heart skip a beat.
To the South of the Main Villa you discover the two Guest Villas. Each Villa has four bedrooms, two 700 sq ft junior suites on the ground level and two 1,400 sq ft master suites with balconies on the second level. The Ocean view Guest Villa rests at the front of the property overlooking the pool area, with views of the ocean sunsets and rainforest views from all rooms, it is easily accessed from the Main Villa. The jungle view Guest Villa rests back from the Main Villa, privately surrounded by the manicured gardens and primary rainforest. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning and ceiling fans, finished with porcelain tile, stone sinks, glass tiled showers and tropical detailing.
The surrounding property features 4 miles of hiking trails and 3 private waterfalls, including one with a 30 foot drop. There is ample land for further building of additional small villas or jungalows.
