Villa Mariposa – BB6 wows with views of both mountains and ocean. Set on a rise near the coast of Guanacaste and designed with floor-to-ceiling glass walls, the contemporary three-bedroom villa is perfectly positioned to let you wake up to the ocean breeze and watch the sun set over the sea. A secluded location gives you quiet and privacy, but it’s just a short drive into town or your choice of two beaches.
Take advantage of the tropical weather at Mariposa’s outdoor living spaces, from a covered deck with lounge furniture to a shaded al-fresco dining area. There’s a pool, hot tub, outdoor shower and even a separate water feature leading to the entrance. For entertainment, there’s a home theater, iPod dock and Wi-Fi access, and for comfort and convenience, there’s air conditioning, heating and an alarm system.
Floor-to-ceiling windows and white walls make the villa’s interiors bright and airy. The open-plan living room, dining room and kitchen have huge sliding glass doors that open to the deck, so you can feel the sea breeze as you cook. White sofas and black dining chairs are graphic and modern, while wooden tables and accents and orange throw cushions add texture and color. The well-equipped kitchen has a convenient breakfast bar and glossy cabinets that bounce the sunlight around.
Each of the three bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom, air conditioning, a ceiling fan, phone, TV and CD player. The bathrooms are stocked with toiletries and hairdryers. The master bedroom has a king bed, jetted tub and private bathroom, and there’s one bedroom with a queen bed and one bedroom with two double beds that share a bathroom. A queen sofa bed in the living room can accommodate larger parties.
If the ocean views at Mariposa make you want to feel the sand between your toes, make the 10-minute drive to San Juanillo Beach or the 15-minute drive to Playa Ostional. By car, it's 10 minutes to the grocery store, and 30 minutes to a gym, clinic, regional airport and more in the town of Nosara. The Hacienda Pinilla Golf Course and Santa Cruz Hospital are both a 60-minute drive away.
“Costa rica I will be back, the villa was fabulous”

The villa was just as beautiful in real life as the pictures. The roads are really bad and that\'s being kind. Johan are concierge was wonderful he made the trip stress free and was their for all of are needs. I was alittle disappointed the first day we got in to find the pool hadn\'t been cleaned but one phone call to Johan and that was taken care of. The chef service was like eating at a 5 star restaurant. The sunsets and views of the mountains and ocean were spectacular from the roof top deck (one of are favorite places to be at sunset). We did have the pleasure of feeling an earthquake that took place in Guatemale it was just alittle rubble. The electric went out one day but it was early in the day so it didn\'t stop us from going to the beach. The beach was fabulous it was in Nosara and was popular with the surfers , the waves were huge. We had so much fun. We went off one day really not knowing where we would end up to find our selfs in monkey heaven we have some great pictures. - Kathy J., Wisconsin, USA
