Villa Antigua was built with materials of the highest quality and the result is pure tropical luxury. The magnificent workmanship and attention to detail is obvious at every turn and the space is appreciated more and more over time with the discovery of each well thought out idea. Villa Antigua is often called the “Best House in Jaco” by those familiar with the area. It is scheduled to be featured in upcoming design and architectural magazines such as Beach Home Magazine. A mere thirty-second walk takes you from the property to the beach and puts a final exclamation point on the list of features. Villa Antigua’s location on one of the best beaches in Costa Rica and central location making access to any of the countries offerings easy completes the unprecedented appeal of this one of a kind dream home.
All construction at Villa Antigua meets or exceeds current building codes. In Costa Rica, building codes have been getting tougher every year. Just do a search of the strict housing Costa Rica building codes to see for yourself. The difference in construction between new construction and construction even just five years ago can be significant. In an effort to minimize or eliminate the extreme wear and tear that beach living can cause we viewed and studied other Costa Rica beach villas. We took pictures of Costa Rica beach homes and discovered that homes even just 100 feet from the beach showed significantly less deterioration than beachfront homes. Maintaining a safe distance from the water results in the home requiring much less maintenance as time goes by. In designing Villa Antigua, we wanted to ensure that the home’s owners would be able to simply enjoy the home rather than having to worry about continued maintenance, upkeep, replacement and/or repair of inadequate construction.

Second Floor Plans
Arched windows/ doors
Design challenges and added costs did not prevent the designers/builders from employing arched doors and windows throughout. It was a necessary detail in accomplishing the designer’s vision of creating a true, authentic Antiguan/Mediterranean feel.
Although electric stoves are more common in Costa Rica, Villa Antigua’s kitchen is with top chefs’ top choice: GAS.
12” block walls
The majority of construction in Costa Rica is done with 8” concrete. Villa Antigua’s 12” block walls add both strength and visual impact. Raising the Villa 3.5 feet off of the ground eliminated any chance of flooding and created the added benefit of a Wow factor upon entry.
1256 sq. meters (13,400 sq. ft) The land of the Villa extends well beyond the river into the jungle. One idea was to design an arched walking bridge to the river island and install a garden and picnic area.
Secure from extreme neighbor construction
After extensive research of the neighboring areas, we chose this lot for the villa construction partially because it is secure from encroachment from any neighbor construction today or in the future.
- Glass/ iron doors and windows include three locking mechanisms
- Digital locks with changeable codes eliminates the need for keys if desired.

With the high levels of rain during the green season, Villa Antigua’s reliable roofing and oversized gutters provide worry-free living. An additional layer of rubberized coating was added to the aluminum sheeting beneath the clay roof tiles in order to guard against leakage.
An oversized garage provides for easy storage of two cars and other smaller vehicles like motorcycles, quads and/or athletic gear (surfboards, mountain bikes, etc.) There is ample room for the addition of more owner lock-offs or cabinets.
