Oceanfront Villa In A Beach-lover's And Surfer's Paradise

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Jul 20, 2016
4 Bedroom, 4.5 Bath Villa With 45' Infinity Pool, 100 Steps From The Pacific.

This amazing villa is just a few steps from the Pacific Ocean. Located in Playa Negra, one of the best surfing beaches in the world, Villa Floramar offers modern amenities in a magical tropical setting.

The villa was completely renovated in 2014 to a very high standard.

The villa is surrounded by a wall of local stone. On entry, you step into a lush tropical garden with a lovely fountain. As you enter the villa, you walk into an open plan kitchen, dining and living rooms. The living room has cable TV and a DVR. All of the appliances are brand new.

The front of the house is a wall of windows, which slide open to the terrace and the infinity pool beyond. It is indoor/outdoor living at its best. The 45' infinity pool is right off of the terrace.

Just off the terrace, there is an air-conditioned gym with a stationary bike, weights and yoga mats that has a full view of the ocean. Imagine exercising while watching the waves!

To the right of the terrace is a gazebo with a king-sized bed and couch.

One of the two master bedroom suites is located just off the terrace, with a full ocean view and a private outdoor shower made out of local stone.

There is a half-bath and outdoor shower on the ground floor.

The tiled staircase to the second floor leads to a balcony that extends the width of the house. From the balcony, you have nearly limitless views of the Playa Negra coast and beyond. It's a perfect place to nap on the 2 sofas or to watch 'surfer channel' -- nearly every day there are surfers just in front of the villa.

There are 3 bedrooms on the second floor. There is a second master bedroom suite with floor-to-ceiling windows with uninterrupted views of the Pacific, a walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom with shower.

The third bedroom, in the back of the house, has a garden and mountain view, with exclusive use of a hall bathroom. The fourth bedroom has a garden and mountain view, with an en-suite bathroom.

The bedrooms are luxuriously decorated, with local wood, art and decor.

On the second floor, in addition to the 3 bedrooms, there are 2 seating areas, 1 with cable TV, as well as a small refrigerator and coffee maker.

All of the bedrooms have king-sized beds, remote-controlled air conditioning, ceiling fans and coded safes for your valuables.

There is a 2 car garage, with an automatic garage door opener and storage for your surfboards. There is a laundry room attached to the garage, which our guests are welcome to use.

The entry to the property is gated, with an automatic (code needed) gate opener.

The villa has a full security system.

The villa comes with full concierge service. Our concierges will meet on your arrival to the villa and are there to accommodate your requests. They are full-service concierges and can make restaurant reservations, recommend and book local attractions, arrange for a private chef or massage.

There is daily maid service at the time you specify with our concierge. There is daily pool and garden service as well.

There are wonderful private chefs available for any event, be it a simple dinner in the villa or a cocktail party.

A gorgeous property perfect for adults looking to relax and disconnect from the real world

  • 5 of 5

The property and the views are stunning! Camille is an outstanding chef and made breakfast every morning, which was a wonderful treat! Fabrice is warm, friendly, and was extremely helpful in enhancing our stay. The beach is wonderful for morning strolls but not for swimming due to the strong waves and current. But it was so much fun to watch the surfers early in the morning from our terrace. We didn't realize that it was going to be so hot during our stay (high 90's) and the main level was at times very uncomfortable. We wish there could have been a few more fans or if the fans present could have had stronger/faster settings. But truly, our stay was pretty close to perfect and we would absolutely recommend this property to our friends.

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at Villa Floramar and had the time of our lives. The house is beautiful and location is spectacular offering great views of the ocean as well as amazing sunsets. Upon arrival we were greeted by Fabrice and Patie who did an unbelievable job coordinating our activities and meals for the week. In fact, some friends of ours who were staying in Tamarindo joined us for Easter and they put together an excellent 3 course dinner for all 20 of us with Patie serving as the head chef. The home is very well equipped and the wifi worked great all week. Most of our time was spent enjoying the beautiful views, watching the surfers on the adjacent beach (which is easily accessible from the property) and taking in spectacular sunsets while floating in the large infinity pool. We did venture out a couple of days to go fishing and hit up the adventure park in Rincon as well as enjoy a couple of dinners in Tamarindo (about 30 minutes away), but for the most part we were perfectly happy hanging around the house most days.

This was our first visit to Costa Rica but I can assure you it will not be our last. When we return, Villa Floramar will be a our first choice of places to stay!

Paradise worth pursuing

  • 5 of 5

Well, if you are really in need of being treated like you are at a Ritz Carlton in Costa Rica, then this is your place. I will tell you that the photos are exactly the same, but way better in person. Denice, the home owner, had a call with me at first to see if this was a good fit for both of us. The beach directly in front of the house is dark lava rock....not good for sun bathing but Denice explained that. And why hang out there when you can be in the amazing pool! We had 4 little ones with us ages 4-7, and the favorite sunset activity was searching for hermit crabs at sunset. they are everywhere!

The house manager Fabrice is amazing- both very tentative and on top of things, but by no means invasive. He recommended Lola's to us- a super cool local bar/surfer spot/ fun hangout, as well as a boat tour to see Howler monkeys, crocodiles, birds and other fun wildlife. I could have watched the howler monkeys for hours!

Camille made breakfast for us every day, and dinner one night. I HIGHLY recommend both- but she made this salted caramel chocolate dessert that is about the best dessert I think I have ever tasted in YEARS!

I can go on and on- I got engaged at sunset on the balcony, and have to say that this experience just meant the world to me. But back to the important things you may want to know...

Everything is top notch. Towels are from Restoration Hardware. The wine glasses are very nice if you prefer wine- they have a wine fridge if you want to keep your red wine at the right temp.

Every small detail is considered, and you just cannot expect to find this all around ***** 5 star treatment just anywhere. We will be back, and I hope this review is helpful for you as you pick. We are so so so thankful for our amazing time. Thank you!

superbes vacances en famille

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé deux semaines dans cette superbe maison parfaitement aménagée et décorée, rien ne manque. Les chambres et les salles de bains sont parfaites. Ce furent des vacances de rêve pour toute la famille, nous étions 9. Patie et Fabrice nous ont accueilli dès notre arrivée et ont été très professionnels tout le séjour et les petits déjeuners et repas réalisés par Camille et Pascal, un enchantement pour nos papilles.

Le Costa Rica est une merveilleuse destination, la nature est belle, les gens sont adorables, la plage et la mer sont sauvages et très propres.

La vue sur la mer qu'offre la villa, ses terrasses, sa piscine transparente, son jardin, sa petite descente à la plage bien entretenue est exceptionnelle.

Tout a été parfait tout le long du séjour qui nous a paru trop court, mais nous reviendrons, nous l'espérons.

Fantastic beach front home with excellent service

  • 5 of 5

I took my family - wife, 4 kids and son-in-law - to the home for a Christmas week vacation this year. It was my first time to Costa Rica and also my first time renting a home via online booking/listing. I was somewhat nervous about what I would experience. Was the home as nice as it appeared online? Would the beach turn out to be as good as it appeared? How about the area and activities? The whole experience turned out to be beyond my expectations. The owner of the property was very easy to contact/friendly during the initial phases (payments,etc.). The home was exactly as depicted and is really gorgeous. It is well finished and well stocked with everything you could need (from towels and boogie boards to floating pads for the pool, dishes in the kitchen, board games, poker chips, etc.). The home has quite good internet (3-5 mpbs) so my family of social media addicts were able to get their fixes. The beach is really nice. It is quite rocky right in front of the home but this provides a lot of tide pools which my daughters enjoyed exploring. One of the best surf breaks is just 100 meters down the beach and we enjoyed watching expert surfers all day. Another 200 meters down the beach is a wide, sandy beach where we spent a lot of time and boogie boarded, took surfing lessons, etc. I like that the sandy beach is down a ways as the crowds are non-existent right behind the house. But you only have to walk 2-3 minutes to get to the beach. The home came with a complimentary concierge service - Patie and Fabrice. They were wonderful both before and during our stay. They were very helpful in booking us day trips to zipline, snorkel and deep sea fishing. The are both extremely attentive but not overbearing - only a phone call away. They stopped by multiple times during the trip to check in and were also available when I had questions about the property, a light bulb went out, etc. The home came with daily maid and yard service which was fantastic. Finally, Fabrice and Patie made us aware of an in-home catering service - PASCAM (stands for Pascal and Camille the French owners of the service). We scheduled 3 dinners and two lunches and to be honest I wish we had scheduled them for virtually all of the meals. The prices were reasonable compared to restaurants in Tamarindo and the food was far, far superior. It was a fantastic week, fantastic owner, wonderful concierge, great house. We hope to be back!
