Our Top Picks for Festive Villa Availability 

Imagine a scene of turquoise waters framed by swaying palm trees. You sip Costa Rican coffee while sizing up the waves from a private balcony, before grabbing a board and hitting the surf just steps away. The afternoon boasts endless sunshine and play for the kids in a private infinity pool, then you gather with loved ones under a rainbow sunset to share the delights whipped up by a private chef. We love how togetherness is at the heart of the festive season, and we’ve seen how a great villa gifts the space and privacy to make forever memories.
