The community is made mostly of million dollar homes, and its strategic location right off Route 27, takes you to the beach in less than one hour and to the Multiplaza Mall, banks, Hospital Cima, the best stores and restaurants in town, within minutes.

From the two levels you can admire the spectacular views of the property over the Valley of Santa Ana and its mountain range.
The orientation of the home offers complete privacy and year-round sunlight through walls of glass – the owners picked this lot specifically for privacy and its spectacular views - very often you can see the Nicoya Peninsula from the top deck. You cannot see this house from the street thanks to its very discreet and private location.
A gigantic formal dining room is also part of the social areas and strategically located next to the kitchen. The kitchen is a cook's kitchen and there is ample room for help if desired that is out of the way. The kitchen also has a family dining area.
All bedrooms are oversized and the house has plenty of bathrooms for maximum convenience when entertaining large groups.
Anyone interested in this property should see it at night time when it is at its most incredible and dramatic with all the city lights, plus the jungle and pool lighting!
Villa Real is a life style also with lots of trails in the green areas (access right from this house to terrific hiking) plus tennis, swimming, at Casa Club (also important to see). There is also a social committee here so it is easy to meet neighbors if you want that or have complete privacy if not. The HOA is very good and the Villa Real staff/guards, etc.. is very responsive and professional as well. It is an extremely well managed community.
The house was designed for maximum family enjoyment and it is ideal for entertaining of large groups.

This is what one of the owners of Villa Real has to say about living in Eco-Residential Villa Real.
“I can tell you that Villa Real is really a life style choice for privacy, and many of us also socialize frequently with friends who are neighbors here. It is a very friendly and international neighborhood. Many people walk in Villa Real and there are also fantastic trails in the undeveloped areas which will always be there. In addition, tennis, swim program, dance and Pilates classes at the Casa Club- and there is a soccer field for residents use. Casa Club is also a great place to host a party if you don't want to have it at home. There is a social committee that plans holiday and other get together so neighbors can meet each other. It is very international but there are also a lot of local families. Our board is well run and participation is welcome or you don't have to if not desired. The staff at Villa Real is very well managed and helpful- it is very safe – in fact security was heightened and is constantly being evaluated. Villa Real is a great place for families; kids are safe and it’s easy to carpool to events- There are many families from CDS Country Day School, which soon will move closer to Villa Real, Lincoln School, Pan American and AIS as well- probably others as well so it is easy for kids to find neighborhood friends from their school.”
