The Floating House is a unique modern house above the canopy of the jungle, with breathtaking ocean and jungle valley views with a 4min walk to the beach.

3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, open plan kitchen/living space with flying walkways between them. Private pool, housekeeping, security, A/C and parking included. We have harnessed mother nature to create a very natural , cool, luxury modern tropical tree house. This is truly a unique and unforgettable vacation experience.

The space
This award winning house was designed by Benjamin Garcia Saxe and interiors by Dante Medri. Designed to be earth friendly, there are 3 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with flying walkways between them connecting to a professionally designed kitchen space for a chef. Our main living space consists of 3 separate lounges/relaxation areas and a 10 seat teak dining table, all with views of this stunning coast. The entire house with pool, is yours so you have absolute privacy and housekeeping, security, private parking included. There is A/C in the bedrooms should you need it but otherwise we have harnessed mother nature to create a very natural , cool, modern tropical house tree house.

We have beautiful views of the waves and gentle breezes as well as being less than a 4 min walk to the ocean and incredible surf. We picked the location and designed the house with my five years of knowledge working with several luxury rental homes and what guests are looking for a high end Costa Rican escape. Being able to see the epic views and waves as well as walking distance to them is key. We also designed the house with our kids(now 12 and 9) who love it.

We have daily housekeeping, conceirge team and a night guard as well as AC in all bedrooms, wifi and an infinity pool where you can sit and enjoy the passing monkeys and the breaking waves. All bedrooms have floor to ceiling concertina hand made doors that allow you to watch the waves from your king size bed and these can also be completely closed  up.

The Floating House has won multiple architectural awards both in Costa Rican and internationally and if you go on to google or Twitter and search 'CASa Flotanta' you will see where we have been featured.

Our rate for 2019 Jan will be $575 a night plus 13% sales tax and we would love to have you come and stay

Guest access
The entire house is yours to enjoy.

Other things to note
Bring cash, a lot of places in town do not take credit cards. You can, however, go into the bank and withdraw larger sums if you have a passport with you. The machines limit the amount you can take when it's high season.

Location

Santa Teresa Beach, Puntarenas, Costa Rica

Hermosa is the more chilled out part of this coast, we have a couple of world class restaurants but without the craziness of Santa Teresa, which is only 10 mins away by car.
We also have the best surf beach in the area for all levels- voted top 5 beach in the world by Conde Naste traveller, its a 4 min walk from the house. We have a local super market 100m from the house for basic needs.
