Casa Dare to Dream is a stunning vacation rental located in the Hermosa Heights gated community of Costa Rica. Perched – almost magically – on a hillside with lush views down to the oceanfront, here is a villa that has really earned its name. Casa Dare to Dream has been designed and decorated to meet every holiday need while satisfying your senses. If you are a fan of HGTV, you may already be familiar with this dream property that was featured on House Hunters International as an exemplary model of architecture and vision.
The exteriors at this luxury villa feature a contoured infinity-edge swimming pool with saltwater filtration and a tanning shelf. Enjoy the panoramic views from the comfort of the poolside bar, the covered outdoor lounge with ceiling fans or the alfresco dining set next to the summer kitchen and barbeque. Sun seekers will simply adore the rooftop deck with padded lounge chairs – also a great spot for stargazing! With an alfresco shower and heat lamps, the deck is ready for use day or night.
The interiors are elegant and modern, with an eye for stately decor. The main open plan space includes a massive kitchen with a breakfast bar, an exquisite dining area with seating for ten and plush white couches in the interior lounge area right next to the deck. The great room’s arched wooden ceiling with dazzling lighting fixtures over marble and leather surfaces creates an epic scene with an hourglass placed just so and pink flamingoes on the wall of the study nook. Perks include television, DVD player, Wi-Fi and Xbox. There’s also an exercise room with a sparkling ocean view.
Five immaculate bedrooms accommodate up to ten guests at this non-smoking villa. Four bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms are located in the main house, and the fifth is situated in separate guest house with a kitchenette – ideal for extra privacy. The villa is wheelchair accessible and makes a great bet for a multigenerational family or a social event like a wedding or anniversary.
While at Playa Hermosa, feel free to adventure! Costa Rica is known for its boundless natural habitats that contain five percent of the entire Earth’s biodiversity. Zip-line through the jungle, scale a dormant volcano or go horseback riding while pausing to shoot breathtaking vistas. It’s also just a twenty minute drive to Papagayo Golf and Country Club. Or kick back on the sand and soak in the sun. You’ll find plenty of water sports on the beach including Jet Skis and wave riding. Have your vacation, your way with Luxury Retreats!
