Puntarenas is a city that is full of life; a getaway for many that combines tropical magic with sun, sand, surf and a nightlife that continues till dawn. It is on an idyllic coastal strip of this city and overlooking the Pacific that is just a few steps away that the gorgeous and relaxing Villa Akoya designed by Studio Saxe sits. This beach house feels elegant, modern and is a low-maintenance escape that will leave you enchanted with breathtaking views of the ocean even as the sand and surf seems to become one with the entrance.

The design of the residence was specifically elevated above the ground level to provide better views of the ocean even as the marginal change in height offers a chance to create series of platforms and decks around the living areas. On the inside, it is wood and white that takeover as a color scheme with strong colors staying away. As is the norm, natural greenery provides necessary freshness both inside and outdoors with the covered walkways and decks flowing into the garden. The house feels like an organic extension of the beach, a feeling that is hard to replicate elsewhere.
