Hacienda Santa Inés, Cartago, Costa Rica
For Rural Romance in Ultimate Luxury
Somewhere between peeling the potatoes and putting laundry in the dryer, have you ever wished you could spend a week in the lap of luxury, be waited on hand and foot—and maybe throw a few couples massages into the equation? There is a solution, though it may involve winning the lottery. The exquisite Hacienda Santa Inés, on 300 acres in the mountains above San José, Costa Rica is available for rent, for just one couple; a group of friends; Hollywood celebrities, drawn by the promise of supreme privacy; or destination weddings. This vast private home, complete with a movie theater, a spa, a kitchen that Martha Stewart might covet, and more staff than you could possibly keep busy, will let you feel like you are starring in Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous. Outdoors, you will have 300 acres to roam, gallop around on horseback, or zoom over on an ATV. Indoors, meals are prepared to order and such niceties as aperitifs and champagne enrich your time in the spacious hot tub. Off-property tours are arranged.
