More about this property

What’s more, this home enjoys some of the best, unobstructed ocean views that Mar

Vista has to offer, making this a one-of-a kind opportunity for those looking to buy


Lovingly named for the fact that this home is nestled in the hillside and surrounded

by nature, Casa Cocoon greets its visitors with a lovely paved driveway and

blooming bougainvillea flowers. As you enter the home, you will immediately

notice the home’s open concept--with vaulted ceilings, where the dining area, living

room and kitchen unite--to make entertaining fun and easy.

The kitchen is wonderfully unique in that it has an oversized island with plenty of

room for family and friends to gather together; a stove with retractable vent; and

sleek, hardware free cabinets for that clean, sophisticated look.

This space opens through large sliding glass doors to the impressive outdoor area,

complete with coralina tile, an extended covered area to lounge and use rain or

shine, a beautiful infinity edge pool, and one of the absolute best ocean views that

are available in this community. The privacy and views from this space are simply


The space also has a yard, perfect for young children or pets, with a producing coconut

tree, a grill station, and pendent lighting that creates a wonderful atmosphere in

the evenings.

The principal bedroom features beautiful accents of Costa Rican hardwood, teak

coffered ceilings, and sliding glass doors that open to its own outside lounge area,

and views of the ocean. The principal bathroom has dual sinks, striking tile, and

both indoor and outdoor showers.

A tribute to this home’s excellent design, each of the three bedrooms in this home

have amazing ocean views, sliding glass doors leading out to nature, and their own

en-suite baths, for maximum comfort and privacy. In fact, for those looking for a home

that would also service as a significant income producer when not used personally,

this home’s layout, style and location in a gated community make it an excellent candidate

for use as a lucrative vacation rental.

There is also a half bath that is smartly accessible from inside the home or from the

pool area, a laundry room, and an office perfect for those who want to work from


The home has many extras that other homes simply cannot offer. In addition to the

ample privacy and stunning ocean views, there are abundant grounds with a variety

of fruit trees and flowering plants, making it fun to simply meander through the

garden. There is ample space here to build a guesthouse, which would have the

same ocean views as the main home. There is also a covered 2-car carport, and a

bodega that would serve perfectly as a workshop if desired.

The Mar Vista Development is well known for its luxurious, single family homes

with stunning ocean views and the fact that it is only a seven-minute drive to seven

gorgeous beaches. Mar Vista offers ample amenities including tennis courts, newly

constructed pickleball courts, a gym, a yoga palapa, and miles of hiking trails.

Mar Vista is also home to the famous Gracia Restaurant, which offers exceptional

dining, dramatic ocean views, sunsets, and a pool and bar for lounging and relaxing. 

The La Paz Community School rests in the valley of this development, and many

families are buying and building homes in this community as a result. There is also

another great educational option, The Costa Rica International Academy, located

less than 10 minutes away.

This home is located within a 7-minute drive to the new Flamingo Marina, which is

now accepting its first boats into the harbor and offers high-end dining and retail to

its visitors.

Finally, this home is located within a 50-minute drive of the Liberia International

Airport (LIR), making is extremely convenient for international homeowners.
