Casa Moreno has a unique blend of charm and comfort. It is convenient to shopping, tours, and beaches. The unique attributes of the Villa are the spectacular views, the comfort and convenience of both the house and the location, and the quality and functionally of the new and modern furnishings and appliances.
The views from Casa Moreno are magnificent. The ocean with the new Pez Vela marina is to the west and south and the endless rainforest mountains are to the east and north. The sun rises and illuminates the mountains in the morning and sets at the ocean in the evening.
Casa Moreno was built in 2015 with the goal of making the villa enjoyable, guest friendly, attractive, and comfortable. Everything is new including all the furnishings and utensils, towels linens, appliances etc. All the furniture was custom made in Sarchi, Costa Rica.
The design of the house is a blend of Mediterranean and Costa Rican architecture and decor. The house is large, with 280 square meters, 3000 square feet of inside living space and 2000 square feet of balcony, decks and patios for exterior enjoyment. Many large half oval windows accomodate the spectactular views from inside the house.
The villa can accommodate up to 10 guests with space and privacy for all.
There are four bedrooms and three full baths. The large Master bedroom has a king bed, a private bath and large closets.
Bedroom two is on the same level as the master and has an oversized bunk bed with a queen on the bottom and a double on the top. There is a full bath next to this bedroom.
Bedrooms 3 and 4 with queen beds are on the lower level. Both have doors which access the balcony at the pool level as well as the house interior. There is a large full bath located between these two bedrooms.
All the beds are new, custom made, with orthopedic mattresses, comfort toppers and protective covers for both beds and pillows.
All the bedrooms have large closets of cedar wood, custom made furniture, comfortable beds, and privacy from other areas.
All the bedrooms and the main living area are air conditioned with individual thermostats. There are ceiling fans in the upper bedrooms and living area as well as on the balcony.
All the bathrooms are large, all tile with good showers and fixtures. All are stocked daily with fresh towels and washcloths by the maid.
The main area is open and consists of the living, dining, and kitchen areas. All the ceilings are high and are teak wood. There are many large Mediterranean style windows to provide an indescribable view.
The living room is very homey and comfortable, good for conversation, playing games, or for watching satellite TV. There is a seven seat sectional sofa, a large recliner, one other cushioned chair, and a large coffee table.
The entertainment center has a large flat screen 50 inch LED TV which is connected for satellite reception. There are several HBO and Cinemax movie channels as well as NFL and sports. There are many stations in both spanish and english. There is also a stereo with bluetooth and a netflix and streaming compatable blueray DVD.

The spacious kitchen has a large island with six cushioned back stools. This area is a favorite gathering place for cocktails, and conversation while enjoying the views.
There is a large, double door refrigerator with icemaker, a large gas stove with oven, a dishwasher, a microwave and all of the small appliances one might need. The cedar cabinets are stocked with enough utensils for ten people.
The dining room has a large table with eight cushioned chairs. You can enjoy the view while you dine.
The panoramic views from the kitchen, dining and living areas are of the Pacific Ocean, mountains, and the town of Quepos. The fabulous views are a unique feature of Casa Moreno.
A door opens from the kitchen area onto a full length balcony on the side of the house. The view of the ocean and the marina are spectacular from there. The balcony furniture consists of a large table with eight cushioned chairs. Like all the furnishings, it is new and of good quality. The new six burner gas grill is located here. Oftentimes we do our cooking here, especially fresh fish.
The pool can be accessed from the balcony off the kitchen, from inside the house at the entry, or from either of the two lower bedrooms. The pool is private. There is a spacious lounging and seating area. There are areas of sun and areas of shade. There are two tables with six chairs and eight quality chaise loungers near the pool.
The pool has a view of the ocean, town, and mountains yet there is privacy. The depth is five feet throughout, good for swimming but requiring supervision of children who cannot swim. The pool is well lighted for evening swimming.
The walls around the pool were painted as a Costa Rican landscape mural by a local artist. Many of the local floral and fauna are depicted in the mural. It is fun to try to find all the different local species in the mural.
New, tropical landscaping for the property attracts many species of birds, butterflies and monkeys and provides privacy. We generally see more birds and butterflies at the villa than we do in the parks. The variety and colors are amazing.
