Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: After years of travel in international business development career and later, the intense work of commercial interior design and raising children, Pilar turned what had been a fantasy into a reality. Pilar Dalinger and Tim Davis fled the stress of L.A. for the jungle and sea on Costa Rica’s Pacific coast. “It took us nine months to get used to the laid back life,” which they call here Pura Vida or Pure Life. Tim and Pilar's bold move to build the ten-bedroom Villa Mareas. It was a project, she says, that though daunting at some junctures, turned out to be the creation of a personal paradise. We have enjoyed almost 8 years of rental to families, friend reunions, weddings, yoga and wellness retreats and T.V. shows. Driven by the principle of living sustainably within the jungle and wanting to be outdoors as much as possible, Tim and Pilar planned three distinct Mediterranean cum tropical style buildings integrated with one another by bridges and small paths. The structures would be made of concrete to prevent the decay caused by the jungle and insects. A terracotta colored metal, rather than clay, tile roof would keep the monkeys from pulling off the tiles. And each of the suites of the 18,000 square foot home would have a separate entrances and most, outdoor showers. Local artisans were hired to make almost everything by hand from mixing the cement to crafting furniture and posts and beams from nearby teak trees, Even a 15-foot long ornamentally carved bar was fashioned from a slab of one of the trees on the 36-acre property.

Why the Owner Chose Bahía Ballena, Costa Rica:
Very private and beautiful, the waterfalls on the 34 acre estate are stunning and so is the wild life that surrounds us. If you are looking to rent a Luxury and Unique villa this is it. Villa Mareas.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Our 1,700 sq ft swimming pool has been voted by Luxury Magazine as the 3rd in the world and 1st in Costa Rica. It is surfaced entirely in iridescent blue glass tile with a waterfall and a jacuzzi. We are very familiar with the area and can suggest tours and restaurants for you. We offer free concierge for your transportation, excursions and meals.
