'Sails' is a spectacular 3 bed/3 bath villa, designed by Victor Canas, one of Costa Rica's most renowned modern architects. Each room offers exceptional ocean views over the Gulf of Papagayo and its islands and El Ocotal beach is just a 3 minute walk away.
The open floor plan gives a feeling of spaciousness, tranquility and privacy. The windows can be opened up to access the terrace so that it seems as if inside and outside merge together. The out-sized infinity pool is great for all ages; surrounded by lush vegetation, you feel as if you are swimming in the jungle. Our tropical gardens surround the terraces and are home to exotic birds and visiting howler monkeys.
Each bedroom has its own bathroom, a/c, fan and a private balcony/terrace. A tempered glass bridge gives access to the master bedroom which also has a large storage/dressing area.
The office offers high speed wi-fi, a selection of books and magazines and a wealth of information on Costa Rica.
El Ocotal is an exclusive and secure community with night-time guards at the entrance gate. The houses sit on the hillside, surrounding an award-winning crescent beach. Ocotal is just 1.5 miles from the bustling fishing village of Playas del Coco where you can find restaurants, shops, banks and supermarkets, as well as a lively night life! We are 30 minutes from Liberia International Airport and the capital city of Guanacaste.

Year Purchased: 2002
About the owner: We are a European couple (French and English) whose second home is in the United States. We bought the land about 20 years ago (it was much cheaper then) and finally built our dream house in 2002. We spend about half the year in Costa Rica, and enjoy being able to share our lovely home with visitors from around the world. It really is special and it's a delight to see people's faces when they arrive; really, my photos don't do it justice.
Why the Owner Chose Playa Ocotal: We love the contemporary, open feel of our house - it's unlike anything we've ever had before, and most of our guests feel the same. The open plan, flowing feel of the house is really special, so why not try something quite different?
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Privacy, spaciousness, beautiful views, calm; walk to the beach with your own guide (Tarzan); have a massage on the terrace; chill out in the pool; it's all yours. Come and enjoy it.
