Casa Elsa is an open concept house. There are very few walls or doors in the house itself, except for the 4 bedrooms and ensuite baths. The house sports several floors, each offering a unique view of the Costa Rican jungle. Casa Elsa's design also exposes one to the elements. Visitors will feel the cool coastal breeze blow into every room of this luxury home. During the day, Casa Elsa is brightly illuminated by indirect sunlight which compliments the artistic elements of the house such as the acid-etched concrete floors and brightly decorated walls.

The natural experience is furthered from visits from local wildlife. Casa Elsa is often visisted by birds, lazy sloths and wild monkeys (such as the ones pictured above). The monkeys in particular provide good company. They will typically walk around the railings and pool areas. Their visits provide good entertainment for Casa Elsa visitors.

The jungle is not the only natural wonder Casa Elsa has to offer. The villa also offers a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean. Visitors are within walking distance of the local beaches. Those interested in swimming and sunbathing will enjoy the warm climate all year long.
