The Space

Brand-new one of a kind luxurious estate located only 300 meters from the palm-fringed Caribbean.

This African-inspired designer villa, aptly named Residencia Kenia, has been crafted with a meticulous attention to detail. Masterfully incorporated into the surrounding jungle, Residencia Kenia boasts a private pool inspired by the dark sands of Playa Negra, luxuriant designer landscaping, an open-air design including a lounge for relaxing, entertaining or dining, 3 bedroom suites, a massage/hammock platform adjacent to the pool, an office, and a gourmet kitchen.

Two bedrooms privately located in separate wings of the main house offer en-suite bathrooms, walk in closets, and king-sized beds. The master bathroom adds a large double vanity, dressing area, separate shower, and an in-ground outdoor Jacuzzi for unwinding in style or relaxing to the jungle sounds by candlelight. For guests wanting a bit more privacy, the third en-suite king-sized bedroom is located in a poolside bungalow. All the beds are equipped with mosquito nets.

The center of the house is a massive open-air dining and entertaining area, including a comfortable lounge, full-size billiards table, and dining for 8. The lounge and dining room communicate with a fully equipped gourmet kitchen offering a four-burner commercial grade gas range oven, Kitchen Aid mixer, large refrigerator and freezer, blender, toaster, and coffee pot.

Amenities include Wi-Fi Internet, a safe, and a washer & dryer. For active guests, the rental includes 4 beach bikes ($100 security deposit for each bicycle), 2 boogie boards, and a sea kayak. Live-in staff housed in a separate caretakers quarters provides security, housekeeping, landscaping.

A full perimeter fence ensures privacy and security though it's camouflaged by lush landscaping. Private parking is accessed by a remote-controlled electric gate.

Residencia Kenia was designed for style, comfort, convenience, and privacy. The temperature inside stays comfortable day and night as it was specially designed to stay cool using concrete construction and an open-air design to catch the Caribbean breezes.

Details about the house and the area :

Costa Rica has a tropical climate and is known for its biodiversity. The main characteristics of a tropical area are high humidity throughout the year, lush vegetation and tropical insects. Please be aware that you will probably encounter some of those during your stay!

High humidity makes moisture an issue. We opted for an open-air built house allowing a constant ventilation avoiding moisture and bringing a cool temperature inside the house. Consequently, the house does not have glass windows, and no front door.

About security :

Security might be an issue in the area.
The house is surrounded by a full perimeter fence and access is made through an electric wooden gate. There is a full time guard living in a caretaker house inside the perimeter. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood, so is not totally isolated. The 3 bedrooms can be locked with keys, and the office has a safe, to which you will get keys and code.

Please do not hesitate to ask any more questions, we will be happy to answer!

Originally from France I have been living in Costa Rica since 2010. I came across this area while traveling and I ended up staying here... I love this place so much for its laid back atmosphere and beautiful surroundings. I very much enjoy sharing tips and recommendations about things to do and places to visit as well as my favorites restaurants! I am also the owner of Caribe Horse riding club, a well known horse stable in the area.
