Discovery Beach House
The eclectic décor of this Villa is skillfully pulled together in a mixture of Latin, African and Asian themes based upon the owners’ intriguing travel experiences. “If only the walls had ears” is a familiar phrase. In this case the walls do have ears as the stories unfold through photos, hand painted tiles and within the pages of the Guide Book guests receive upon arrival.
You’ll appreciate the cozy living room after a day at the beach. Relax in the comfy window seat overlooking the tranquil Japanese Garden framed by giant traveler palms. Everything you need in home entertainment is here. We even supply the popcorn!
The Great Room has a stunning two story vaulted beamed ceiling and is surrounded by French doors that open onto a Spanish tile terrace and an emerald palm-lined garden. A gorgeous mission style two tier wrought iron chandelier is suspended over a hand crafted dining table with a carved monkey accent. It opens up to seat 12. This room was designed without walls for free flowing conversation between the kitchen, dining room and living room.
GE appliances, utensils, and custom designed cabinets are every cook’s dream. This room was inspired by artist Frida Kahlo’s own kitchen at her Blue House in Coyoacan, Mexico. Spectacular hand painted tile reproductions of her famous paintings are the focal point. Frida’s fruit themes grace the splash board behind the sink. “Roots” and “Frida & Diego” adorn large niches in the breakfast bar. Everyone tends to gather in the kitchen anyway, so the bright red, blue, green and gold colors make it especially inviting and festive. Why not take it a step further and pamper yourself by hiring the house chef?
Each suite is unique. The focal point of the romantic second story master suite is the hand carved African king sized four poster canopy bed draped with an amazing animal print designer fabric. A comfy window seat is lined with jungle print pillows that invite you to lean back and read a great book, watch the monkeys, or take a decadent afternoon nap.
The second suite is suspended over the living room, and boasts a 260° view overlooking the Greatroom and Japanese Entrance Garden. A welcoming window seat provides extra seating or can function as an extra bed. The two twin beds can be combined to make a king bed.
The third suite lets you enjoy the ultimate in privacy. This first floor bedroom has it’s own entrance, kitchenette, bathroom and coffeemaker. No need to disturb anyone if the call of howler monkeys wakes you up earlier. Take your morning cup of delicious Costa Rican coffee out onto your own private patio and appreciate the lovely tree garden and early rising monkeys from your own Moroccan tiled table.

Loved the location, the accommodations, the hospitality and the staff!! Surrounded by Mother Nature and her protected wildlife. Comfort beyond expectations!

I was invited to accompany my son and his family and friends. We all had a great time and enjoyed the jacuzzi, pool, and beach nearby. Some meals were catered by an excellent chef and her helpers. The manager was very attentive and planned and booked excursions to zip-line, white-water raft etc. In the evening we dined at superb restaurants nearby. The overall experience was extra-ordinary.
We just returned from a week at the Discovery Beach House and had an absolutely amazing time! Everything was perfect from the beautiful house, to the pool area and of course the beach location. The staff went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Having the monkeys come through the backyard every day was such a special treat. Would love to come back again!!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Discovery Beach House! The home and property are absolutely beautiful, clean, comfortable, and well-maintained. The staff is beyond friendly and helpful. Sabrina took care of every detail and made herself available any time we needed her. We saw plentiful Costa Rica wildlife without having to leave the property - even more so than we did in Manuel Antonio Park (3 types of monkeys, sloths, iguanas, birds, etc). The beach is immediately outside outside the property, yet it feels very private. I would highly recommend renting this gorgeous place. Wish we had more time to stay!

The arrival and orientation was very good. The lay out was perfect with the older guests on first floor and the kids in the sky with the monkeys and sloths. We did not get to use the kitchen but the cooks crew seemed to be right at home and needing nothing. Pool, patio, and beech access were over the top. The crew at the gate handled all the problems with ease and it did not effect us guests at all. Once we got used to the rain almost every evening it became something to look forward to and smile. If I were looking for some items to comment on it would be add a pillow or two to each bed, better instructions at hand on bedroom door locks, fan and light switch use instructions. I had to dig deep for those items.
