About the property

4 Bedroom, 4.5 Bath Villa With 45' Infinity Pool, 100 Steps From The Pacific.

This amazing villa is just a few steps from the Pacific Ocean. Located in Playa Negra, one of the best surfing beaches in the world, Villa Floramar offers modern amenities in a magical tropical setting.

The villa was completely renovated in 2014 to a very high standard.

The villa is surrounded by a wall of local stone. On entry, you step into a lush tropical garden with a lovely fountain. As you enter the villa, you walk into an open plan kitchen, dining and living rooms. The living room has cable TV and a DVR. All of the appliances are brand new.

The front of the house is a wall of windows, which slide open to the terrace and the infinity pool beyond. It is indoor/outdoor living at its best. The 45' infinity pool is right off of the terrace.

Just off the terrace, there is an air-conditioned gym with a stationary bike, weights and yoga mats that has a full view of the ocean. Imagine exercising while watching the waves!

To the right of the terrace is a gazebo with a king-sized bed and couch.

One of the two master bedroom suites is located just off the terrace, with a full ocean view and a private outdoor shower made out of local stone.

There is a half-bath and outdoor shower on the ground floor.

The tiled staircase to the second floor leads to a balcony that extends the width of the house. From the balcony, you have nearly limitless views of the Playa Negra coast and beyond. It's a perfect place to nap on the 2 sofas or to watch 'surfer channel' -- nearly every day there are surfers just in front of the villa.

There are 3 bedrooms on the second floor. There is a second master bedroom suite with floor-to-ceiling windows with uninterrupted views of the Pacific, a walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom with shower.

The third bedroom, in the back of the house, has a garden and mountain view, with exclusive use of a hall bathroom. The fourth bedroom has a garden and mountain view, with an en-suite bathroom.

The bedrooms are luxuriously decorated, with local wood, art and decor.

On the second floor, in addition to the 3 bedrooms, there are 2 seating areas, 1 with cable TV, as well as a small refrigerator and coffee maker.

All of the bedrooms have king-sized beds, remote-controlled air conditioning, ceiling fans and coded safes for your valuables.

There is a 2 car garage, with an automatic garage door opener and storage for your surfboards. There is a laundry room attached to the garage, which our guests are welcome to use.

The entry to the property is gated, with an automatic (code needed) gate opener.

The villa has a full security system.

The villa comes with full concierge service. Our concierges will meet on your arrival to the villa and are there to accommodate your requests. They are full-service concierges and can make restaurant reservations, recommend and book local attractions, arrange for a private chef or massage.

There is daily maid service at the time you specify with our concierge. There is daily pool and garden service as well.

There are wonderful private chefs available for any event, be it a simple dinner in the villa or a cocktail party.

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Floramar and we love it. The house is truly amazing and the location does not get any better. I am reluctant to write this review because part of me want to keep Floramar and Playa Negra a secret. It is that special of a place! Denice and the staff accommodated our every need and we had an amazing time. We will be back. Pura Vida!!

Second time at Villa Floramar!

  • 5 of 5

Our return trip to Villa Floramar was as great as our first time visiting about 2 years ago. The house is perfectly located on the beach which gives you front row seating in a large infinity pool to some pretty amazing surfers and some of the most incredible sunsets! Fabrice did an excellent job as always coordinating all of our activities as well as transportation and dinner reservations. Camille and Pascal provided all of our breakfasts and several lunches during the week which were delicious and cooked up an amazing New Years Eve dinner! We will definitely be back!!!

The most amazing trip we have been on. It was truly a vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This house delivers everything and more. We celebrated my husbands 60th Birthday at Villa Floramar. There were 7 adults and this place was perfect. Plenty of room and plenty of places to sit and nap! The view of the infinity pool, ocean, and surfers was mesmerizing.

I would also, recommend hiring chefs Pascal and Camille. Their food is outstanding! My husband is a little picky, but after the second meal he had completele trust in them. They aim to please.

Fabrice, house manger will line you up with the best fishing trip, boat tour, massage therapist or anything you are wanting to do in Costa Rica. He is also available for you at anytime! Having 4 hours of maid service a day is the best! The garden and pool guy was like clock work. He was always on time and kept everything beautiful and working!

My husbad is already planning our next trip. You will not be disappointed!

Everything and so much more! Stay here!!

  • 5 of 5

Where to start?- First of all, this lovely home is everything you see online and so much more. You truly get what you see in these beautiful pictures and the video.

The infinity pool is absolutely stunning and we lived in it when we were at the home and not out on our adventures.

We took to heart others reviews here when they said they wished they had used the chefs, Camille and Pascal, more- we did!!! These amazing chefs cooked all of our breakfasts and almost all of our dinners during our eight day stay. You cannot go wrong. Not only are the two off the chart chefs, they are SO nice and SO creative in their services. Always a unique table setting using local nature finds such as shells and flowers, beautiful table cloths and napkins just always took the experience to the next level. The food was impeccable and they catered very well to dietary restrictions.

The rooms were beautiful and the home has so much space to spread out or be together.

Our daily maid was very nice and always did a wonderful job, as did the pool boy who cleaned the pool daily and kept the gardens beautiful.

Access to the beach was right there, we enjoyed many sunsets on the beach or from our balcony each day. The walk up to the Playa Negra hotel was merely minutes- our children took surf lessons there and enjoyed it greatly.

The small town outside of the closed community was very inviting, we spent time at the local bar and pizza spot ( Buena) - good food and cool drinks and super friendly.

Stay at this amazing home! Hire the fabulous chefs! You cannot go wrong at Floramar!

My own personal slightly negative was the concierge, his level of service wasn't on par to this home or the chefs, so my only advise here would be not to rely too heavily on his services. - but do not let that distract from this home and all that it has to offer.

Where do you live?

No words to describe how amazing this house was

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival we were anxious to see if the house lived up to their pictures. In the past we had been disappointed. Not the case with Villa Floramar. This house far exceeded our expectations.

The accommodations were perfect. The attention to detail shows the owners love for their beautiful home. We spent most of our time in the gorgeous outdoor space. Breakfast, lunch and dinner, relaxing, swimming and just hanging out. Pascal and Camille cooked divine breakfasts and dinners, best meals we had all week. We were sorry we didn't book them for more. This home was by far the best we've rented thru VRBO!
