Casa del Bella is a dream come true for us after many years visiting and surfing Costa Rica. We designed the villa specifically to keep in pace with the simple CR lifestyle, yet tastefully furnished and accessorized to accommodate all. The house has an open floor plan with many windows accentuating an indoor/outdoor experience. The sleeping loft has 2 pillow top queen size beds to accommodate 4 guests. A fifth adventurous guest could sleep on the cozy couch downstairs. The full bathroom boasts a large stone hot shower with linens provided. Kitchen is fully equipped with all the necessities for the guest chef. (Recommendations can be made for fresh fruit and vegetable markets and supermarkets in the local area) Cable TV & DVD player, wireless internet and I-pod/CD player are supplied to enhance your stay. AC is remote controlled and, combined with the ceiling fans, make for a great night sleep during the hot season. A separate bodega houses the full size washer and dryer for your convenience day or night.
Moving outside, our lot sits near the end of guarded neighborhood. The house and pool are nestled into the back portion of the lot, which provides privacy during your stay. The landscape surrounding the pool area is a designated green zone and seems to be a meeting place for all the local animals. We have spotted white face monkeys, macaws, toucans, parrots and sloths many times before a second cup of coffee. Your private pool is the perfect size to relax and enjoy the sun or afternoon shade. The covered patio offers relief from the sun or shelter from tropical rainstorms, complete with hammocks and outdoor dining furniture. Behind the bodega you will find an outdoor shower which is a perfect 'clean up' solution when returning from the nearby beach or a hike on the local trails.
