Old monasteries and Latin estancias are the inspiration for the custom fountains, ironwork and lighting found throughout. Artfully integrating luxury with old-world romance, everywhere is a feast for the eyes—time-worn columns & pedestals, carved furnishings & artworks, antiques & hand-loomed textiles all give guests a sense of place in this colonial seaside town. Creative architectural elements were meticulously designed to display a curated selection of indigenous Mayan handiwork collected by the owner during her years of charity efforts benefiting the indigenous of Guatemala.

Cleverly designed to operate as an ultra-luxurious one bedroom villa or a home with 5 ensuite kings plus bunk room (or anything in between!) the San Rafael offers four different configurations providing the exact guest rooms needed for your perfect beachfront experience.

Villa San Rafael is filled with 5-star amenities including a housekeeper who will happily help with meals, refresh the suites & keep the villa swept free of sand. Full concierge services are available to help with reservations & excursions.A membership to the private oceanfront Beach Club is also part of the luxe package included with this villa.

When ready for adventure, Pura Vida Ride, 3 minutes down the beach, has all the water toys you could want for ocean fun and bikes to tackle the renowned trails. Las Catalinas is a growing community located at the end of a quiet beach road which now has several restaurants, a grocer and soon, a bakery! More fabulous restaurants and night life are 15 minutes from town. Our 5-star concierge can help you with reservations and planning excursions.
