ABOUT

LOCATION:
Exquisitely positioned in the exclusive northern beach cove of  Santa Teresa, Costa Rica is the Villa MAISON MARAZUL.  This oceanfront “jewel box” location in the heart of nature is sited along a small stretch of beach shared by luxury boutique hotels such as Florblanca, with on-site bar/restaurant.  Our adjacent access to neighboring amenities requires only a barefoot stroll down the beach to enjoy yoga,  spa services, cocktails, sushi or dinner.  This affords our guests the opportunity to experience the Pura Vida lifestyle as locals do.

BEACHES:
The white sand beach directly in front of the property is protected by reef.  Low tide presents the opportunity to explore the tide pools or take an ocean dip. For surfers, the world famous Suck Rock point break is a short stroll up the beach, and beyond lies an endless stretch of surf breaks and swimmers beaches.  The five mile length of Santa Teresa beach is ideal for a sunset walk, run or horseback ride.  Beyond the pinion to the north are abundant tide pools and the gentle breaking surf of Playa Hermosa.

DESIGN:
MAISON MARAZUL’S modern Moorish architecture features hand applied plaster walls and smooth concrete floors rendered in a serene alabaster hue.  Soaring ceilings meet crowning windows to provide natural light, magnifying the mood of translucence and tranquility. All interior doors reveal to the outdoor decks and expand the open air living space.  Throughout the house, the distinctively curated decor and artisan details embellish the warm and personal nature of the rooms.  Exclusive to MAISON MARAZUL, all of the furnishings were designed by the owners, and actualized by local craftsmen in sustainable fine hardwoods.  Although air conditioning is provided in all rooms, the architectural design of the clerestory windows allows the trade winds to cool and vent the house naturally.  Incorporating green technology, the home has a state of the art water treatment plant.

VISION:
MAISON MARAZUL represents the efforts of seven years of planning and dreaming about creating a special retreat that would be worth the effort it takes to get there and leave the world behind.  Originally conceived as a courtyard home, the house was carefully sited to preserve the natural beauty of the surrounding jungle, and was designed around the existing trees, for the benefit of the original locals- monkeys, iguanas and birds.
