Modern hillside retreat near Playa Hermosa

8 guests · 3 bedrooms · 3.5 baths
Experience the wildness of Costa Rica and the peace of mind of a gated community at Villa 8: Terraces at San Martin. Perched above the Pacific in a quiet enclave, this private modern vacation rental offers stunning views over the rainforest to the jungle, not to mention a location close to beaches, national parks, waterfalls and more. Its setting in an exclusive residential area makes it ideal for a laid-back holiday with family or a getaway with friends.
Take in the ocean views from the villa's terrace, which has an infinity pool, plenty of loungers and a barbecue. If available, head to the Elan at Ballena Beach Club, where guests of the Terraces at San Martin are welcome. Inside the villa, a TV and Wi-Fi give you the option of staying connected-but you can always choose the luxury of being unplugged, too.
Watch the sun move across the water or see tropical rainshowers fly up the coast from the villa's L-shaped great room, which wraps around the terrace to offer its own panoramic views. Living and dining areas filled with chic modern pieces make up the legs of the L, and in the center is a fully equipped kitchen with a breakfast bar.
Villa 8 has two bedrooms with king beds, including one with ocean views, and one bedroom with two queen beds. All three bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms and, for the warmest nights, both air conditioning and ceiling fans.
Whether you're in Costa Rica to enjoy warm weather with friends, try activities as a family or have an adventurous honeymoon, Villa 8 puts you at the heart of the country's signature rainforest-meets-ocean landscape-the perfect place to experience everything from ziplining and whitewater rafting to hiking and snorkeling. It's a short drive from two beaches, Marino Ballena National Park and the Nauyaca waterfalls, plus, for dinners out or a little souvenir, it's an easy trip to restaurants and shops in the town of Dominical.
