Cahuita, Costa Rica
Luxury Villa Overlooking Ocean with Private Golf Course
“Pura Vida,” translates to “pure life,” and that is exactly what you are going to experience at Joya de Costa Rica, a 6 bedroom, 8 bath, 6,000 sq. ft. villa that offers a piece of heaven on Earth. This gateway tropical paradise is surrounded by the magic of its unsurpassed, natural beauty of the jungle, crystal-blue, tranquil waters and its wondrous wild life.
Joya de Costa Rica has six luxurious suites. There are two master suites overlooking dramatic ocean views, as well four junior suites. All bedrooms have en suite bathrooms, separate entrances, cloud-soft beds, and floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking unbelievable views of the jungle and ocean.
The villa offers two large dining areas, one indoor, and the other under a hand carved gazebo made out of exotic local wood. This indulgent retreat offers a personalized service creating the ultimate experience of luxury. You can also enjoy a dip in our pristine saltwater pool while being surrounded with exotic views of the jungle, or be completely at peace lounging in our outdoor living area while soaking in the astonishing views of the ocean.
Joy de Costa Rica is located about half way between the traditional Caribbean flavored fishing villages of Cahuita (6 Km north) and Puerto Viejo (8 Km south) and 2 Km south of the southern exit to Cahuita National Park.
Puerto Viejo sits on a picturesque cove where sailors moor and local fisherman park their boats on the sand. Puerto has retained much of its rustic charm and resisted the mass development that has turned so many once charming destinations into cookie cutter resorts with no real soul.
The first car was not seen in Puerto Viejo until approximately 1990 when the first dirt road (now paved) was completed into the town. It has a relaxed Caribbean flavor with numerous restaurants, a quaint harbor and beautiful sunsets. The road continues south about 15 Km to Manzanillo where it ends at the beach close to the boarder of Panama. Along the way are the villages of Cocles and Punta Uva. Numerous un-crowded and picturesque beaches are minutes away, easily accessible by car.
Breakfast is complimentary every day and includes a choice of: eggs, toast, cereal, oatmeal, fresh fruit, coffee and juice.
Chef services for lunch and dinner are available, at an additional cost and they need to be reserved prior to your arrival. Stocking your refrigerator prior to your arrival is also available as an option.
Maid service is provided and is complimentary on a daily basis. We kindly ask that you are environmentally conscious, and the towels you wish changed please place them on the floor, the ones you are still using leave them hanging up. The bed linens will be changed every other day.
Laundry service is available. Price upon Request.

This home is even more spectacular in real life....every detail has been thought out meticulously. We received a warm welcome and and given a tour of the home and grounds, including the golf course upon our arrival. The chefs had a delicious lunch prepared for us as well! The rooms were spacious and had spectacular views of the jungle and ocean. When we were not retreating in our rooms, we enjoyed the different lounging areas around the home as well as used the perfect temperature pool everyday. We actually stayed at the property everyday but one simple because it was exactly what our group needed. The owner, Mihaela was a tremendous help and gave us lots of information prior to our arrival. Once we were there, Emilio was just as helpful. All of the staff that worked at the house, were so delightful and did an amazing job making us feel comfortable, cooking our meals, cleaning our rooms and shopping for our groceries. Although we were there at the time of the US outbreak of Covid-19, we managed to still relax and rest before heading home to our country. We definitely recommend this property if you want to experience a true jungle home on the Caribbean side of CR. ”
Great home with private golf!
This home is beautiful. The owner gave us great advise in advance to prepare and make our trip special. The home is about four hours from the airport, but worth the drive. The staff did an excellent job! A hearty breakfast every morning and lunch/dinner when requested. Highly recommend this property.”
Unforgettable, that's for sure
A well designed jungle villa, using at least six native woods that accentuate this unique layout. You'll have to be there to see what I mean! Comfortable spacing for a group of your best friends or families with small children. There were two children ages 9 and 5 that spent every afternoon in the pool after a morning of activities, giving them play and educational time, and for the parents, a place to enjoy the views of the surrounding jungle. What makes Joya so unique is you really see howler monkeys every day, hear them every morning, enjoy toucans and parrots (and a variety of other gorgeous birds) in the trees around the villa, and hear the sound of the jungle every night! Bring binoculars to help your viewing while getting some rest by the pool...oh, and do shop for your favorite food and Amapara will cook you amazing meals. (her crepes are the best) You will have a great week at Joya! ”
Exceptional Property - One of a kind on the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica
The location of this property is identified within the listing so I will not address except by providing a little more detail. From the main highway, its about 1/4 miles before the you go up a steep grade another 1/4 mile or so to the compound (A compliment), not just a house or villa. The property consists of multiple buildings, for guests the building with the living quarters (which are on two separate floors; two of which I refer to as very large masters overlooking the jungle and in the distance the sea) and the building which has the kitchen, dining room and social area. All the bedrooms are very nice. The masters are exceptionally large. I'm relatively certain this is the nicest property on the Caribbean Coast of Costa Rica. All the buildings on this property were constructed with considerable attention to detail; beautiful local hardwoods pretty much throughout. Ampara woods and takes care to insure the property is always cleaned. Wilbur is always checking to see that everything is working properly, changing a light that is out, etc. Rafael is the night guard. Emilio is the property manager. I had this property to myself and it was very relaxing. My son couldn't make it and a friend of mine cancelled last minute due to a family illness. You will need a 4 wheel drive for access. I needed a vehicle anyway as I visited a great many beaches north and south of the property, snorkeling and paddle boarding. The golf course is very interesting, tight shots. Play in the morning; it warms up quickly and the course layout requires that you walk down then up. I would highly recommend this property for multiple couples or a family/group larger than mine. It was certainly more than I required. I dealt with Mrs. Mahaela Varga. Prior to the trip, she provided me information as requested. During the trip, she inquired as to whether I was satisfied with my accommodations. The property manager, Emilio, was also on site numerous times to insure that the staff was taking care of me.
