Welcome to Cielomar, a peaceful haven in Papagayo Costa Rica.
The "bow and arrow" design of the house -- with the bow as the house and the arrow as the entry ramp and bridge -- affords complete privacy to the large sunken courtyard terrace with pool and all rooms. Air-conditioned interior spaces open to the ocean views, as well as a large exterior covered loggia that functions as an outdoor living room, to enjoy Costa Rica's famous warm and mild weather while being protected from the equatorial sun.
The villa provides views for all primary spaces: a salon large enough for a dining table and a bar; three family bedrooms; three guest bedrooms; two private studies; and the kitchen. This was achieved by curving the house in a semi-circle around a radial point in front of the bridge, so that each room has a slightly shifted view of the ocean to the west and headlands visible to the north and south. Media room/home theater; the gym; laundry room; and a two-bedroom caretaker apartment with separate entrance and mechanical systems, located beneath the two garages.
The master bedroom suite is entered from the main terrace, the loggia, or through one of the master studies via a private reading room. A unique feature of the master suite is a completely private, sunken Zen garden with an outdoor shower, which opens off the master bathroom. This creates an exotic retreat in which to bathe and relax.
Placing the 90 foot long pool cantilevered at the edge of the terrace satisfies the need for a barrier, with the ocean view unencumbered by a guardrail. The pool is lined with charcoal-black volcanic lava stone, imparting a deep blue color to the water. At times it is difficult to distinguish the edge of the pool from the blue Pacific Ocean beyond. The days seem to begin and end by the pool as the circumstances will change and it is so easy to get caught up in an emotional experience as life proceeds at a more relaxed pace.
Spaces not needing a view include the Zen Garden off the master bathroom, media room/home theater, the gym, laundry room, and two bedroom caretaker apartment with separate entrance, and mechanical systems located beneath the two garages.
CieloMar is a place of refuge, stimulation, and exploration. It is at once the repository and fulfillment of dreams. With the help of many, it has become the crystallization of a great idea that was the innovation that flowed from ambition pursued with passion.
There is a live-in couple at the Villa that does House Keeping, Cooking, Property Maintenance, as well as meet guests at the airport.
Guests of CieloMar have full access to the Four Seasons Golf Course, Tennis Courts, Beach Club, Restaurants, and Spa. The 13th tee is directly across the street and in the garage are two golf carts which can be used for playing golf or getting around the 2,300 acre resort.
