Las Villas De San Buenas Project Overview

Mary Duane Halverson Costa RicaLas Villas De San Buenas is the perfect, affordable, Costa Rica real estate development to kick back, relax and live the Costa Rican lifestyle of “Pura vida!” (pure life). Las Villas De San Buenas is 150 acres of beautiful Costa Rica real estate nestled in the foothills of the Osa Peninsula. Add a stream running through the middle, and almost 20 acres of primary jungle with hiking trails, and you can start to understand why we feel this is paradise. Daily sightings, and singing from, toucans and howler monkeys add to the natural ambiance found only in the Osa region of Costa Rica.

Our lots start at $20,500 which have beautiful 180 degree mountain views and prices and views are enhanced from there. Whether you are interested in mountain views, wooded lots or ocean views, each lot can be purchased with our easy financing option with as little as $5,000 down. We also work with Latin America Title Co. for more financing and title insurance options if you prefer.

Las Villas de San Buenas was designed by an award winning planner to ensure almost every lot was next to or near to a park, green space or common area. The entire area of mountain view lots have over 1.5 miles of walking trails connecting all of the parks and providing easy and enjoyable passage to other parts of the development.

Location. Location. Location.Location Las Villas San Buenas Map

Located only one mile from the Costanera Highway (Highway 34), in the quaint and friendly town of San Buenaventura (population 400), Las Villas de San Buenas offers clients the charm, beauty and safety of a small town, with the amenities of a much larger town. It is rare in Osa not to need a large 4×4 SUV or pick up, but with many of our lots, any vehicle can easily arrive, in any weather which makes it perfect if you are offering your villa for rent when you are not around.

  • San Buenas Golf Resort: Costa Rica’s only golf course in the southern pacific zone is next door. We have 27 discounted memberships available at 60% off regular membership price.
  • Healthcare: One of Costa Rica’s newest hospitals is 5 minutes away (more info)
  • Beaches: When you visit or live here, you are only 20 minutes from five beautiful beaches.


Costa Rica security house

Guard house at entrance

Costa Rica is an extremely safe country with crimes rates below many US Cities (including Lincoln, Nebraska!) and San Buenaventura has minimal to no serious crime. However, we also offer an extra level of personal and property safety in Las Villas De San Buenas. Starting in August 2014, we will have 24-hour security with gated entrance. To the left is a picture of our guard house located at the entrance to Las Villas De San Buenas. All residents who build in Las Villas De San Buenas will have property management for their rental home to ensure that only those you want in the home are there.

Turn Key Construction.

We oversee and manage all of the construction on your lot. Work with our team in choosing one of our home designs, make any requested changes, and we will do the rest. We will provide weekly photo-recaps so you will see the progress from the comfort of your home. When it is complete, we will hand you the keys and you can enjoy your home immediately (we will even purchase furniture and appliances for you if you want).

The process starts with choosing a home design from our available designs or work with our architect and design your own dream home. (we do not currently have a mandatory build time so you can take your time and build when it fits your schedule).

Once you choose your design, the finishes (granite counters or ceramic?) and paint colors, we will handle everything. We file all the necessary permits, schedule all inspections, and make it very Costa Rica home buildingeasy for our clients. We provide weekly recaps with photos and descriptions of the week’s progress on your home.

We have select home models available to choose from, in addition to custom design and build the house of your dreams. Also, there is no mandatory timeline to construct your home in paradise. Our base home cost approximately $86 per square foot. Learn more about our construction process and options

Once your home is built, our property management program ensures that your asset is protected and well kept – whether or not you choose to have us offer your villa for rent to make additional income or not.

We have sold over 25% of our home sites to date (out of over 200) on the 150 acre development. Our lots vary in size from about 1/8 of an acre (500 sq meters) to 1 1/2 acres (6,100 sq meters) and vary in price from $19,900 to $139,500.

Estate Lots

Our estate lots are ideal for clients looking to build a large home with more security and privacy in a beautiful surrounding. Our estate lots offer more space and larger sweeping views than our Residential Mountain View lots. Each lot in Phase One is truly unique. Every one of these beautiful Costa Rica lots offers a different view, a different size and different landscape than any other lot in the development. Some with ocean views and some embedded in the wilderness. In Phase Two we offer custom home sites, that are adjacent to the quebrada (creek) that runs through the property with beautiful mountain views.

About Las Villas de San Buenas

We have slightly modified the masterplan from this 3D model (fewer homes in mountains, larger parks, etc), but this provides a great perspective about the topography found here.
