Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica Unveils Casa Del Mar, An Expansive New Residence Estate Inspired by the Coastal Beauty Around It
Resort’s largest residence a superb destination for family vacations and gatherings of friends, with amazing sea views from indoors and out
There are water views and then there are water views. But there is nothing else quite like the visions of surf and sand that await guests of Casa Del Mar, the new and expansive residence estate at Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo.
Like Casa De La Luna, the Resort’s other estate residence, Casa Del Mar is inspired by the lush coastal province of Guanacaste around it. Interiors bathed in natural light are watched over by artful animal carvings – one species per room – created by local wood craftsman Renan Calvo.
Linger over sea views from the entry foyer before stepping into the Great Room, where Calvo’s monkeys cling to a stone wall. Here the living room, dining room and kitchen conjoin before sliding glass doors, creating a smooth flow from interiors decked out in natural woods, limestone tiles and green accents to exterior living space. Guests will want to leave the doors open throughout their stay.
Exquisite furnishings and features abound in Casa Del Mar. In the dining room, a table of precious Cenizaro wood seats eight for food well-prepared and wine well-chilled with Viking kitchen appliances. Two entertainment centers offer endless possibilities with Bose Home Theater surround systems, 42-inch plasma TVs, and even queen-sized sleeper sofas for anyone whose eyes droop before a movie’s end.
Four bedrooms are designed for contented living and solid sleep. Custom headboards and handcrafted furniture have been created from exotic woods; full marble baths with deep soaking tubs and indoor and outdoor showers rinse off the day’s pursuits; in-room technologies include i-Home systems; and private gardens and balconies are sanctuaries. The master bedroom is watched over by a carved Great Egret. A second bedroom is home to turtle carvings. And the third and fourth bedrooms, reached through a breezeway, spread out before river alligators and armadillo, respectively.
It’s lavish living, all right – and just as impressive outside. Casa Del Mar lays out 4,000 square feet of exterior living space, with seating on designer Gloster furniture for up to 34 friends and well-wishers and a 2,500 square-foot deck set next to a covered Jacuzzi spa and lap-size infinity pool. Swing languidly in a locally made cage hammock. Fire up the Viking barbecue grill. Or spend time admiring the residence’s beautiful landscaped gardens, with more than 7,000 plants across the grounds.
Though ensconced on a private hillside with views of the north and south peninsulas, Casa Del Mar is nothing if not part of the resort. Estate guests enjoy the many pleasures of Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica, with minutes-away convenience to pools, beaches, tennis, restaurants and more.
With space for ten adults and four children as well as a nanny or one staff, Casa Del Mar is a superb setting for family reunions and gatherings of friends. Special kid-sized amenities and the Resort’s exciting Kids For All Seasons adventure program assure every generation will be enraptured by the remarkable beauty and possibility of Costa Rica.
