Make monkeys, sloths and toucans your closest neighbors at Casa Vista Paraiso. Nestled into the lush forest like a house in a fairy tale, this luxury Costa Rica vacation rental is the ultimate private retreat. But that doesn’t mean it’s isolated—it’s on the grounds of the Los Sueños Resort, so the fairways, beach club, marina and more are just a short golf-cart ride away from your haven.
This secluded villa opens to a spacious terrace with a sunny row of loungers, pool and hot tub, all with views of the jungle so you can listen to the birds call or spot colorful dragonflies and butterflies while relaxing. A covered outdoor kitchen has a sitting area where you can serve refreshments from the bar while waiting for the barbecue to heat up, and al-fresco dining for eight. For indoor entertaining, there’s a wine fridge, wet bar and sound system.
