The beach residence of your dreams… Villa Serena is an exclusive and classic Tuscan style oceanfront property on an intimate and exotic tropical beach in Costa Rica. Days will go by while you will capture the sounds and smells of the waves and the spectacular views over the Pacific Ocean.
On your terrace you will enjoy the swimming pool, the manicured gardens and the closeness to the ocean. Inside, the house offers an ample social area connected to the open custom designed Italian kitchen. The granite staircase takes you to the second floor offering a master bedroom, with walk-in dressing room, bathroom with Jacuzzi and shower, and a private terrace to admire the beach and ocean views. The house has three additional bedrooms, two of which having a full bathroom.

Villa Serena is less than 5 minutes away from Carrillo Beach, a pristine white-sand, palm-lined beach. Rolling hills and mountains covered with tropical forests surround the bay and protect the beach from strong winds and swells. A reef north of the bay acts as a natural barrier, providing calm waters ideal for water sports such as swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking or anchoring your boat.

Ten minutes to the south of Villa Serena, lies Playa Camaronal, a remote beach with greyish sand and blue waters, which is a popular nesting site for leatherback (Mar–Apr) and olive ridley turtles (year round). It was declared as a National Wildlife Refuge in 1994. Its moderate to strong waves make it an ideal spot for surfers.

Villa Serena has it all!
Welcome to your own place in paradise!

Location

Car: Recommended

Villa Serena counts with an excellent Gourmet Chef at your service, on request. Specialties: Mediterranean, Sushi and Fusion Cuisine.

Villa Serena also offers the ideal location for a wedding or important celebration. Stylish settings, fine cuisine and wines (on request), gracious hosting and luxurious accommodation, make Villa Serena a unique venue. Photographs in the gardens or with the backdrop of the ocean and a forested hillside, make your vacation or event-stay a truly memorable occasion.

Puerto Carrillo, situated along the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica's Guanacaste Province, is known for its jewel among Pacific beaches. The town itself is very small (less than 500 full-time residents) and is predominantly a sport-fishing village with a variety of nice hotels, restaurants and tour operators. The population in Carrillo is mainly local residents and still maintains an authentically Costa Rican atmosphere. Puerto Carrillo is a small unobtrusive community that has been playing host to some of the most well renown sport fishing boats in the world, since its discovery as a billfish destination over 15 years ago. The small town boasts several hotels, fine restaurants, stores, a small airstrip, and one of the most beautiful white sand beaches in Costa Rica. The tiny harbor affords protection to a small handful of charter and private boats that are here on permanent bases. The beautiful white sand beach is popular with swimmers and an ideal beach for your kids.

Playa Carrillo ranks among the Final Four for 25 Best Secret Beaches on Earth (Travel and Leisure March 2012). Just south of the popular surfer’s paradise of Samara Beach, Playa Carrillo is one of the least developed spots on the Nicoya Peninsula. Framed by mountains, the laid-back fishing village has a white-sand beach just off a palm-lined boulevard (there are no unsightly beachfront buildings). Known among divers for its excellent coral reef teeming with marine life, the beach is protected by rocky headlands, providing calm, warm water for swimmers. Don’t miss the La Selva Zoo and Bromeliad Gardens at the southern end of the bay.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Denisse and William lived in Switzerland for many years. Renovated and renewed several gentlemen farmhouses, and after extensively traveling around the globe, looking for the perfect place as part of living the happiest possible life, they chose the Pacific Ocean side of lovely Costa Rica.

Why the Owner Chose Guanacaste, Costa Rica:
Villa Serena is a unique oceanfront jewel. The Tuscan architecture has been deployed with solid bases and unparalleled attention to detail. The architect and builder is world-renowned (Philadelphia Airport, and several high-rises on the biggest cities around the globe).

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Splendid Pacific Ocean views and impeccable finishes. The previous owner of Villa Serena is a Canadian investor who built the villa as his private vacation home with no budget restrictions. Villa Serena was built by Italian developer Sam Alibrando with high attention to detail and the highest standards of quality of construction. The location of Villa Serena is a privileged one; anyone going there just falls in love immediately after stepping out of the car. The sounds of the waves crashing against the rocks and the peacefulness of its blue ocean, the magnificent sunsets and the marine breeze, makes days at Villa Serena a magic experience that people want to repeat over and over again. Villa Serena is located near Carrillo, in a very private setting, completely away from the noise and busy streets of towns. No one can predict there is such a beautiful villa there, when entering the gravel road for the first time. The new owners of Villa Serena just turned it into a very unique oceanfront vacation rental home. And Villa Serena has it all to guarantee the best vacations one can have in its lifetime. The danger of coming to Villa Serena... is not wanting to leave when the time is over! Villa Serena is a magical Tuscan Style villa with the benefits of the majestic Pacific Ocean right out the back door!
