1 Villa Punto de Vista, Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica
This 10-bedroom villa offers incredible 270-degree panoramic ocean views, with a golden sand beach just footsteps away.
The property has been built up, rather than outwards, to reduce the villa’s footprint and boasts some impressive eco-credentials.
The roof tiles have been created using plastic bags and the large windows on the face of the building have been crafted using recycled glass.
Other notable initiatives include the use of solar panels to produce energy for the whole villa, including the rooftop jacuzzi, and the installation of monkey bridges which help the animals easily travel through the property’s private rainforest.
