As you pass through the private, gated entrance you are surrounded by lush jungle canopies brimming with birds, monkeys, iguanas and tons of other wildlife. As you step through the glass doors to Gema Escondida, youâll be greeted by an absolutely breathtaking ocean view.
NOTE: WE DO NOT ACCEPT CHILDREN UNDER 13 YEARS OLD AT THIS PROPERTY.
Set more than 1,100 feet above sea level, the villa features one of the most sought-after sightlines around, that of the spectacular natural formation known as the Whale's Tail. This rocky reef, which was naturally formed by the ocean waves into the shape of a whaleâs tail, can be viewed from multiple spots in the villa during low tide.
In fact, at no point will you go without this spectacular ocean view as the kitchen, dining room, living room and bedrooms have all been designed to maximize the feel of being perched high above the beautiful blue pacific. From your spot on the living room sofa, which is the shade of the sea, gaze out over a bubbling jacuzzi and refreshing infinity pool, out into the ocean and experience the full relaxation of a luxury beach vacation in tropical paradise.
Gema Escondida offers guests a one-of-a-kind luxury experience, capturing the essence of indoor-outdoor living perfectly, and can sleep 6 people in beds and room for 2 more on inflatable bed. Due to its design, the house isnât suited for children under 13 years of age. Construction of this premier villa, which features two bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms in the main villa, plus a guest house, was completed in mid 2017 and no detail has been overlooked.
With state-of-the-art Whirlpool amenities, marble counters and some fancy lighting fixtures, this luxe all-white ocean-view kitchen will please the chef in your group. Pull up a stool at the breakfast bar while the Costa Rican coffee is brewing. And the top-of-the-line built-in BBQ with outdoor fridge, counter and sink make it a cinch to grill up fresh local fish poolside.
Beside the kitchen is a dining area with a full ocean view and seating for eight. And in the living area are two sofas, a television and coffee table. The sliders fully open to blend the outdoor and indoor spaces. The patio outside offers plenty of lounge chairs and seating near the pool.
