Between the lively town, the vibrant and diverse social space, and personal spaces to get away, Villa del Sol is ideal for stays with family and friends in town. This home is located in Las Catalinas, a car-free beach town surrounded by nature on land and at sea. Just a short walk from the home, you will find two beautiful beaches, 40 kilometers of world class hiking and mountain biking trails, six restaurants, a variety of other shops, and a full schedule of fun events, large and small. Everything you need for a great vacation is within a short walk through a town of extraordinary beauty. This makes for an experience that is lively and sociable, in touch with nature, and radically different than anything else you will find in Costa Rica. Villa del Sol is on Paseo Punta Penca, a hillside street looking west across the rooftops of Las Catalinas towards the Pacifc Ocean. Ocean views are present on all four floors of the home, including from an infinity edge pool on the indoor-outdoor social floor as well as oceanview balconies on each of the home’s three upper floors. Nearly the entire ground floor of Villa del Sol is an indoor-outdoor living area. There is a large infinity pool terrace, a jacuzzi, a covered barbecue terrace, living room, and dining room which are all connected by large windowed doors designed to be left open. The result is a richly colored social space filled with natural light, fresh air, and views over town any time of day. An oceanview rooftop terrace on the top floor of the home has lounge seating and a panoramic view, and the space as a whole offers a smaller social format to balance the downstairs areas filled with life and energy. Separated a level above the social floor, the master and secondary master both have ocean view balconies. The home also has a full guest bedroom and bunk room for six, offering a versatile sleeping arrangement for large groups. Complete with full kitchen, barbecue grill, washer and dryer, as well as a House Mom who will help prepare breakfast and snacks throughout the day, Villa del Sol is suited to social occasions and lively times together on a stay in Las Catalinas.

Getting around
The majority of streets in Las Catalinas are pedestrian only, and you can walk from one side of town to the other in about 10 minutes, meaning that restaurants, shops, trails, and the beach are never far away.
