This Spectacular Sunset Villa Is The Best Way To Make Costa Rica Your Permanent Destination

The spoils of Guanacaste can be enjoyed all the time from this architectural marvel.

Known for its amazing beaches and marvelous, lush forestry, Guanacaste is a favorite destination for travelers who love to seek adventure in Costa Rica. Between sandy spots like Tamarindo—home to exceptional surfing—and Playa Grande—a fantastic spot for sunsets—this region is already heaven to a beach bum, but the national parks are also an explorer's dream, as they are home to myriad animal species that turn an ordinary hike into a thrilling educational experience.

Now, imagine living here—or at least spending months at a time in the vacation home of your dreams. It's easy to close your eyes and picture such an idea after taking a good look at the amazing Sunset Villa currently for sale in the private community of Costa Elena. Priced at $2.85 million, this four-bedroom residence is located an hour from the Guanacaste Airport, which makes it an ideal choice for family gatherings, milestone celebrations, or just those moments when you want to be one with nature without the resort crowds.

With the treetop setting, it hardly needs to be mentioned that the views are downright epic, as the villa looks out at the Pacific Ocean, as well as Salinas Bay and the Orosi Volcano. Nearby Bolaños Island and Nicaragua might catch everyone's eyes as well since it'll be tough for residents and guests to leave the terraces and private balconies off every bedroom.

With space for as many as eight people, this Costa Elena Sunset Villa will certainly have the vibes and luxuries of miniature resorts, and the infinity pool will undoubtedly be the centerpiece of every visit. The sprawling dining area is also ideal for memorable family meals; perhaps after grilling the catch of the day from an awesome fishing charter.

The biggest perk of living in Costa Elena, though, is proximity to stunning Playa El Jobo for mornings spent lounging on the sand. That's not to say it isn't great to be located minutes from the Costa Elena Beach Club, where guests will also enjoy an even larger infinity pool and other, ever-expanding amenities that will eventually include retail stores, restaurants, fitness facilities, and trails for hiking and biking.

That is, of course, if anyone wants to give up their premium spots beneath the shady beach palapas.
