The Floating House offers a unique living experience floating above the canopy of the Costa Rica jungle, totally surrounded by nature. It combines expansive ocean views towards the Playa Hermosa surf break, luxury interiors, and an infinity swimming pool - all within walking distance to the beach. The 1.5 acre property exemplifies sustainable tropical luxury design.
The Floating House incorporates sustainable features that reduce headaches and allow for a more natural feel, including raised construction to reduce impact on forest undergrowth, passive solar design, UV water filtration systems, and natural ventilation for efficient heating and cooling without depending on mechanical fixes, though all the bedrooms offer A/C and ceiling fans.
Natural teak wood flooring, integrated social areas and the bamboo shafts along the main corridor combine to create fresh and inviting spaces that are both sustainable and beautiful with an unexpected feeling of scale.
The Ultimate Surf Home. The Floating House has also been called the Ultimate Surf Home for it’s laid back feel among the treetops and direct views to the renowned Santa Teresa beaches. With a short 5-minute walk to the beach and quick access to the break, The Floating House offers two good surfing spots right on Playa Hermosa: one is a wide beach break on a flat beach and the other a point break to the north. No need to go far, the exclusive location means it’s all part of the same experience.
At The Floating House, the jungle backdrop eases into rhythm with the waves. Your soul is enriched in and out of the water. The infinity swimming pool, which sits below house, allows you to enjoy the sunset, watch the waves and listen to the chorus of parrots and monkeys which live alongside in the tree canopy.
A Tropical Family Treehouse. The Floating House floats above the canopy of the jungle and feels nestled among the treetops, a privileged spot for the family. Though technically not a treehouse, the combination of bamboo shafts, open design and the use of wood throughout the home help blur the line between inside and out. The natural material elements throughout the home help to tie it in with its surroundings, including a the hillside-facing bathroom and an outdoor bamboo shower. The natural flow and distribution with an integrated social area bring the family closer to nature without leaving home.
It’s a slice of paradise when you get to wake up in the trees and feel inspired by your home.
