A Winter vacation to escape the piles of snow can be just the cure for the February blues.  For those of us in the design world, it is practically mandatory and necessary to keep the creative juices flowing!  Costa Rica is a favorite winter [and summer] stop for Owner and Creative Director, Brian Kappra.  Here, the view from the small plane heading from the San Jose airport to Manuel Antonio and to the vacation house. 


The house is built onto the side of the hill and overlooks the Pacific Ocean. One day, a beautiful four-masted sailing ship appeared just after breakfast.  This is the view enjoyed from the private pool. 


The open-air dining table with incredible views provides a beautiful setting for dinner as the sun sets. 


The house is constantly filled with stunning tropical cut flower arrangements. The design in one bedroom, standing on the floor, reached a height of 9′ in it’s tall glass vase!   Inspirational and magnificent!


The infinity pool and cabana are tucked into the lush tropical foliage which is maintained on a daily basis by Julian.  Costa Rica is an amazing country with beautiful people, wonderful food and awe-inspiring natural beauty.  We can’t wait to go back…….perhaps April??
