holiday fireworks in Costa Rica

Have you ever spent a holiday abroad? If not, our Costa Rica all-inclusive villas and luxury homes are an invitation to escape the traditional and swap winter landscapes for tropical sands. Exchange snow angels and hot chocolate for infinity pools and afternoon drinks.

You can even level-up the luxury and reserve on of our Costa Rica villas with chef, for the lowest stress, gourmet holiday meal you can dream up. So, whether it’s this year or next, consider a new take on your holiday festivities: From Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s to any other holiday you celebrate, Costa Rica is delighted to help you celebrate in style.

For a True Tropical Holiday: Ocean Frontage and/or Ocean Views

When does location become the epitome of luxury? When it comes with a slice of the Pacific!

Throughout Costa Rica, oceanfront homes are exceptionally rare. (However, we proudly offer several oceanfront villas! Discover yours through our property search by utilizing the Refine Filters button and selecting “Ocean Front.”) When oceanfront is not available, awe-inspiring ocean views step in.

These aren’t your average or fleeting glimpses; Costa Rica’s rugged coastline and meandering landscapes provide the backdrop for extraordinary, 180º, panoramic vistas that stretch across the glistening Pacific Ocean and vibrant sunsets. And some of our Costa Rica all-inclusive villas have a front-row seat.

What’s more, many of these villas are so close to the coast that you can peek in on the day’s surf conditions and even hear the rhythmic crash of waves from your private pool terrace. (Remember, explore our ocean-view luxury villas in Costa Rica through our property search, employing the Refine Filters button and selecting “Ocean View.”)

For Low-Stress Holiday Meals: Meal Prep at our Costa Rica Villas with Chef

Costa Rica luxury vacation service private chef

When your culinary aspirations are as simple as brewing a morning coffee and popping some popcorn at night but your heart wishes for elaborate holiday feasts – grilling up the day’s catch or orchestrating an entire holiday-in-paradise menu – a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen, included meal prep, and the skills of a private chef hold the key to transforming your getaway.

Drawing from personal experience, we can attest that, especially when accompanied by early-rising little ones, a well-equipped kitchen, a brimming box of cereal, and the luxury of sleeping in while the kids prepare their own bowls create an unparalleled experience. If you can sleep in a bit, you’ll enjoy our daily breakfast service, plus snack and beverage prep, at select Elite Service and Costa Rica all-inclusive villas.

For those moments when you prefer to let someone else take the culinary reins (or create a holiday feast), a luxury chef’s kitchen seamlessly complements private chef services. We are delighted to assist you in arranging anything from a single special meal to daily meal preparations, whether it’s a laid-back, family-style dinner or an exquisite tropical-fusion gourmet experience.

For Chill Afternoons: Private Pool

Casa Bonita Beach

Fancy a waterslide? Ask us about Casa Bonita Beach!

Sometimes, all you need to complete your holiday is an invitation to relax and enjoy the view. And because Costa Rica is dedicated to fulfilling your vacation dreams – to inviting you to experience your leisure time a little differently – we’re happy to comply. Let time slow down. Watch the sun hang high a little longer. And, lean in. Life is good.

Because, you’ve rented one of these vacation homes, equipped with private swimming pools – from ocean views and waterslides to infinity edges and private enclaves. You’ll spend time on your private terrace, in these cozy sun loungers. You’ll floated the afternoon away, suspended between sky and sea.

And then, you’ll pour you and your family an ice-cold drink in preparation for one of the world’s best sunsets. This is the life. The life you for you, at least while you’re here. Enjoy!

For Sunsets & Fireworks: Hot Tub

There is nothing, and we do mean nothing, like lounging in a bubbling hot tub and watching a dazzling sunset, holiday fireworks, or simply the night stars as they wink on.

For Your Holiday Photos: Tropical-Modern Architecture

If your heart resonates with high-end design, then immersing yourself in one of Costa Rica’s most luxurious villas will be an experience to cherish – and an incredible holiday photo opportunity.

Crafted by renowned international architects and adorned with professional decor, these homes boast an array of features, from expansive natural stone accents and lofty ceilings framing picturesque views to oversized windows and retractable glass walls that seamlessly merge indoor and outdoor realms.

Embodying a unique blend of tropical allure and modern aesthetics, the tropical-modern architecture of Costa Rica’s luxury villas is unparalleled. Nestled within ultra-private settings amidst lush landscapes, these residences showcase clean lines, contemporary color palettes, soaring interiors, expansive outdoor spaces, and a harmonious fusion of natural elements with sleek steel.

Adding to the allure are distinctive, exceptional details: picture a home with an island pool and a central floating outdoor living area, or a mini-resort comprising seven independent structures housing six villa-style suites, each featuring spacious bedrooms, bathrooms, private porches, and sitting areas with jungle or ocean vistas. Perhaps a “perfect 10” koi pond, Balinese-style architecture, cascading decks, and extensive glass elements that dissolve the boundaries between inside and outside.
