Description

Casa Bella Donna delivers the ultimate in tropical elegance. This custom-built home offers a luxury experience within the pristine natural beauty of southern Costa Rica.

Situated in a private gated community, the spacious open floor plan set at approximately 1,000 above sea level offers pleasantly cool year-round ocean and mountain breezes. Hand-crafted custom teak furniture and finishes throughout, including the elegant floating staircase and sophisticated hovering bar, offer a highly appointed experience of modern luxury. Open the huge living room doors upon awakening – which you likely would have to the sounds of tucans and howler monkeys - and experience the best in indoor/outdoor living, where butterflies float by and the sights and sounds of nature will captivate you all day long.

On the ground level are two bedrooms, each with pillow-topped queen beds, custom teak furnishings, ample closets and full ocean views. They share a full bathroom, although there is also a third half bath available, where you can also enjoy a unique and memorable experience in the outdoor bamboo shower. While you likely won’t need it because of the natural breezes and ceiling fans, air conditioning is provided in each bedroom.

The generous upstairs master suite features a pillow-topped king bed and over eighteen feet of sliding glass doors with strategically positioned windows offering supreme views of the ocean and jungle canopy. Relax with a morning coffee on the huge balcony as you commune with nature, or unroll a yoga mat for some gentle stretching. The adjoining master bath features onyx crystal sinks and his/hers dual showers that look out onto both the ocean and the mist enshrouded jungle peaks. If you look closely you can spot the waterfall after the rains. The California-style closets provide ample spaciousness for long-term stays. You probably won’t get any work done with the distraction of so much natural beauty, but a large teak desk with hard-wired internet connection is here if you need it.

The salt-water pool with ocean, mountain and jungle views enhances the luxury that awaits you. Enjoy an afternoon smoothie from the Vitamix on the patio as you sip from a frosted mug you discovered in the freezer. Take a dip at the same time as the sun and feel every cell in your body relax, unfold and rejuvenate. From the in-pool seating you could spend hours looking out onto Playa Tortuga, the Terraba-Sierpe Wetlands, and the distant Osa Peninsula, one of the most biologically diverse places on the planet. With strong binoculars or a scope you might even glimpse the spout of a humpback whale, which migrate here twice per year.

The home is positioned under the equatorial Milky Way and with no competing lights, on clear nights you will experience the crystalline bejeweled skies as you might never have before. Take a bean bag chair and perch yourself on the poolside deck for this sublime night time show. And from the master bedroom, which we affectionately refer to as “The Observatory”, you will drift away to sleep under these magical stars!

A short walk from the home is a secluded fifty-foot waterfall, as well as a natural swimming hole in the river just below, where you might catch sight of the elusive morpho butterfly. Just a ten-minute drive is the town of Ojochal which boasts first class restaurants, live entertainment, shops, and day-spa options. Just across the coastal highway is Playa Tortuga (our favorite beach), one of the best kept secrets of Costa Rica, where scarlet macaws squawk and play in the trees and sea turtles swim just offshore. And beyond this are more beautiful beaches, national parks and adventures galore for many day-trip options.

Fast fiber optic wifi internet is available for all your online needs, and the large screen Apple TV, DVD movies, books, games and Sonos soundbar complete the after-hours entertainment options.

Casa Bella Donna combines vacation luxury with modern-day convenience in one of Costa Rica’s most beautiful settings. Let your system unwind as your energy lands in what feels like The Ritz in the middle of a nature preserve. You’ll have a hard time wanting to leave.

Casa Bella Donna
We stayed for a month at Casa Bella Donna in March/ April 2021 and we had a terrific experience. The house is brand new and is beautifully done. The view was remarkable and made relaxing by the pool unforgettable. The Osa property management team was excellent to deal with...super responsive and addressed all our needs promptly. I would highly recommend working with Osa property management as well as booking a stay at Casa Bella Donna.
