Gorgeous oceanfront home, offering 30,000 square feet of private living with sweeping sunset views.

Within the lush grounds of the Peninsula Papagayo in Costa Rica, Villa Manzu is a completely private sanctuary of its own. This eight-bedroom estate sits on five acres in an isolated peninsula and offers plenty of room to spread out, from the two swimming pools and spa to the theater room and expansive bar/party room. The grounds are dotted with hammocks, chairs and restful areas, perfect for quiet moments taking in 180-degree sea views and watching monkeys cavort in the trees.

Each of the bedrooms is an oversized suite, with mesmerizing ocean views. A full staff of chefs, butlers, waiters, drivers and adventure specialists will customize your stay; guests are offered use of surfboards, paddle-boards, kayaks, bikes, fishing equipment and the like and have access to the full line-up of Four Seasons activities. Our specialists will ensure that you live the Costa Rican adventure and immerse you in the Costa Rican culture. Walking trails crisscross the estate, leading to stunning viewpoints. Fruit and flowering trees attract monkeys of three species, hummingbirds, butterflies and colorful tropical birds, making for a harmonious setting where the best of Mother Nature meets creature comforts for the 21st century.

Villa Manzu is located on its own private peninsula and is only a short golf cart ride to the Golf & Tennis Clubhouse, residents’ Prieta Beach Club, Marina and separately located Four Seasons Hotel, which operates all of the facilities on Peninsula Papagayo.
