Villa Details
Spanish Version (Espaņol)

Villa Encantada, just completed in 1996 has many of the amenities that one would expect with a luxury home.

Photo of Dining Room Villa Encantada's main level has vaulted ceilings (28 ft. high) and two stories of floor to ceiling glass give a feeling of total immersion in the lush tropical surroundings and manicured gardens with a majestic view of Lake Arenal (just a short walk away) to the front of the home and the rain forest with its natural ponds, ornamental plants and waterfalls at your back door. The sunken living room has a pueblo style fireplace and is a focal point of the house. It's a perfect place to relax or entertain. The full kitchen has everything you'll need for your stay. The dining room is ideally located and glassed in from floor to ceiling to overlook the ponds, waterfalls and lush landscape of the property.

The master bedroom is very spacious (550 sq.ft.) and features a queen size bed, pueblo style fireplace, walk-in closet, full bath, imported Italian tile floors and hand carved private entry doors. The full picture window gives a postcard perfect view of Lake Arenal just a short walk away. Once down on the lake you can try your luck fishing for "guapote" (rainbow bass) or talapia. On your way back to the villa help yourself to some fresh fruit right off the trees- papaya, mango, oranges,tangerines grapefruit or macadamia to go with your fish dinner. If you like, take the jungle route down to the lake. It meanders through the rain forest on a manicured trail overlooking the stream and waterfalls beneath a canopy of trees teeming with life. You're likely to see howler and whitefaced monkeys almost close enough to touch. Toucans, parrots and many other colorful feathered friends will be there too, so don't forget your binoculars.

View from the VerandaThe upper level master loft is approx. 600 sq.ft. and will give you the feeling of being in Noah's Ark. This area sleeps up to 6 persons. The hardwood cathedral ceiling, curved walls and surrounding glass are truly an impressive architectural marvel. The views from here are breathtaking and unforgettable. Walk out onto the wraparound veranda to catch the sunset and you will have a new perspective of this paradise right at your fingertips.

The two additional guest bedrooms are very comfortable, large and have excellent views of the rain forest, pond and waterfalls. These rooms are furnished with wood from the guanacaste tree, hand carved doors, and tiled floors which add a warmth that you will seldom find elsewhere. Each has their own private entry access to the garden area.

Villa Encantada is so comfortable and visually rewarding that you may find yourself not wanting to leave. However, we do understand that you are on holiday, and that you may want to experience some of the other treasures that Costa Rica has to offer.
