Costa Rica luxury villa rentals on Langosta Beach

What does “luxury” mean to you? To us, it is unique and authentic – an emotional experience. And it often begins at one of our Costa Rica luxury villa rentals.

You’re a world traveler. You know what luxury entails. Or, at least, you think you do. But you’re a little unsure of what a Costa Rican luxury vacation could mean. After all, in a country known more for its pristine beaches and biodiverse forests – and not for its historical architecture or white-glove service – what does luxury mean?

In a word, Costa Rican luxury is understated. It’s access to some of the world’s most incredible nature experiences. It’s stepping out of your private villa and directly onto white sands, or onto an expansive pool terrace, or into some of the most incredible ocean views in the country. It’s modern architecture and best-in-class amenities. It’s unparalleled attention to detail and a healthy obsession with the guest experience. It’s top-of-the-line everything paired with access to the best of Costa Rica, for the best overall experience.

Costa Rican Luxury is an Emotional Experience

The dictionary links to define luxury as a concept linked to supreme comfort and elegance, often entailing a great expense and/or the quality of being difficult to acquire.

At Luxury Villas Costa Rica, we think they have it half right. In Costa Rica, luxury can, and should, be elegant and supremely comfortable. But we define luxury as more than material comforts: Our Costa Rican luxury villa rentals, and our entire service perspective, are focused on your emotional experience while here. We won’t go so far as to say that material comforts and your physical experience are secondary, but we will call them complementary: It’s not luxury unless you have both.

Here’s what luxury means to us at Luxury Villas Costa Rica:

  • Absolutely Custom: We start with no preconceived notions or one-size-fits-all boxes. You, and you alone, are our focus. We’ll get to know you before we do anything else. Every suggestion we make, every home we recommend, every experience we consider is an answer to one of your needs or wants.
  • Personal Relationships: From the moment you get in touch until you return home, you can consider us your confidantes and allies. Questions? We have answers. Concerns. We’ll address them. Along the way, we’re here to suggest, recommend, troubleshoot, and anything else you need, whenever you need it.
  • High Standards: We are incredibly exacting about the Costa Rica luxury villa rentals we represent. If we wouldn’t recommend it to our best friend and a VIP we were trying to impress, we won’t add it to our portfolio. (See for yourself! Peruse our full list of Costa Rica luxury villa rentals.) And, lest we sound biased, an international hospitality business has also approved our homes, to verify their quality and adherence to high international standards.
  • Best-in-Class Amenities: While your emotional experience doesn’t revolve around material comforts, we know that they’re a piece of it. That’s why our homes are equipped with Costa Rica’s top luxuries, from ocean-view infinity pools and chef’s kitchens to oceanfront locations and the best private views in the country.

A brief note on what luxury is not: It’s not scrubbed of reality or sealed off from nature. It rains in the rainforest, ants sometimes make their way indoors, and monkeys hoot in the distance. As we said, authentic. But in the best ways possible.

There’s a theme to all this, of course. And that is the key to your luxury vacation experience in Costa Rica.

The Key to a Costa Rica Luxury Vacation

You may not want to go the a resort, but we can bring the resort to you!

The truth is, Costa Rica is swathed in nature encounters and soft sands, biodiversity and spectacular views. So, what marks the difference between the everyman’s vacation and a luxury experience? In a concept, luxury boils down to service.

Luxury can be a dedicated staff and fresh breakfasts every morning, it can be a personal concierge on call and your wish list fully checked off.

But luxury is also peace of mind. It’s knowing that your needs and wants will be taken into account, from start to finish. It’s knowing there’s always someone on call, should you need to troubleshoot (or would just like a restaurant recommendation). And that’s where our guest management team and guest concierge come into play.

Because, most of all, the luxury experience in Costa Rica is all about you: What do you picture when you visualize your vacation? What is most important to you? What do you want to see out your windows? Where do you want to go? What must-see and must-do experiences absolutely must happen, for you to feel complete and fulfilled?

Your personal concierge’s job is to help you work through your checklist and build a luxury vacation experience that ticks all the boxes. Your boxes.

Because Costa Rica has it all, from traditional homes and Spanish Colonial architecture to clean lines and state-of-the-art modern design. Here, you’ll find everything from exquisite meals prepared by personal chefs to the freshest and juiciest fruits, plucked straight from the local farmers market. You’ll experience sun and sand and surf, rainforest and monkeys and whales. Because Costa Rican luxury is, above all, authentic. It’s real and it’s wonderful and it’s wild. And we think you’re going to love it.
