About the Owner

Bonjour! My name is Fabrice Beaux. A French American, I moved to Hawaii and lived there for 25 years. I have been touring world wide as a pro windsurfer for the last 20 years and have finally settled down in Costa Rica. I want to share what I believe to be a one of a kind dwelling place & Nature's true Luxery. I look forward to accommodating you at my Villa.

Fabulously private luxe villa

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time at Villa de Shira. Here's what we really liked. One of the best things about this place is that Fabrice, the owner, is nearby, and wants to make your stay as comfortable as possible. At the same time, he is not intrusive, and understands that most people go to CR to chill and take advantage of activities at their own pace.

Pros:
-Daily maid service. This isn't included in most villas, and the person usually doesn't do dishes. And she came at 12. At other places, daily maid service means 8 am wakeup, which isn't very relaxing.
- Plenty of nice towels. This sounds small but isn't.
- Luxurious-feeling bath mats. Again, sounds small, but it's a nice touch.
- AMAZING views. Did I mention the views? Pics don't do it justice. AMAZING.
- The road was built low enough so that people driving by can't see the pool and deck area. That's a really big plus.
- Unlike many villas we've stayed, pool maintenance was regular, and the person (whether Fabrice or one of his employees) always rang the doorbell or knocked. We didn't worry that someone would appear around the corner at any time.
- Unlimited, fast and reliable wifi. Hugely helpful.
- Comfortable bed.
- Delightfully chilly air con in the bedrooms.
- Plenty of hot water available at all times. Hand shower in the tub made for easy hair-washing. The shower water pressure was not really enough, but this is true of every villa we've ever stayed in.
- Good tasting water and crushed ice from the very nice refrigerator. This is a rarity and makes cocktails easy and delicious. Not having to lug bottles of water from the store is a luxury.
- Great washer/dryer. I ended up using it several times during our stay.
- Fabrice really was helpful and welcoming. A terrific host!

Cons:
Honestly, not to many I can think of, and that says a lot :)
- No safe (yet). When we were there in Jan 2014, Fabrice had bought, but not yet installed, a safe. He did say we could use the safe in one of the other units, but we didn't bother.
- If you have a local phone with Kolbi service, don't plan to use it from the villa. My husband had to do a couple of work calls with our local cell phone, and the service was spotty at best.
- No boogie boards, pool floats, etc. to borrow.

Overall, we had an amazing time in a QUIET, private environment.

Room to Breathe

  • 5 of 5
A visit to this property will definitely not disappoint - it is exactly as advertised! The home is an architectural jewel, with beautiful finishes and six set of French doors that open on to the expansive terrace, infinity pool, and ocean view...spectacular! Lovely linens and towels, a well appointed kitchen, everything you need to settle in and hang out. We did not rent a car because we were happy to do just that, but most people should rent a car so that they can explore the fabulous beaches that are within a half hour drive. Our lovely hosts Fabrice and Miho took very good care of us, and as a special treat you can get a beautiful sushi dinner or yummy pizza prepared by Miho and delivered right to your terrace in time for sunset! We look forward to visiting this very special spot again.

Bonheur, Beauté et plus que promis

  • 5 of 5
4 nuits paisibles et 4 journées d'aventure très diversifiées. La maison est un bijou confortable, propre et fonctionnelle sur un site sécuritaire et d'une beauté exceptionnelle (encore plus que sur les photos). Le propriétaire est toujours disponible et fait tout pour nous conseiller et agrémenter notre séjour. Plusieures plages, visites et activités à proximité et retour au bercaille pour la paix, la relaxation et surtout une harmonie parfaite avec la nature. Imbattable!!!

Location

From the Owner

Stay home for the view! A non-commercial, fresh atmosphere. Villa de Shira is a new home! The villa sits on a hill with an outlook slightly above the surrounding nature. The view includes a 180 degree Pacific Ocean view with National Forest, local monkeies, parrots, butterfies (June-September), & local birds. Between December & April the sun literally sets directly in from of Villa de Shira.
