La Guanacaste is El Encanto’s most spacious custom home with an ample great room opening onto an outdoor living room. In order to maximize privacy for residents and their guests, the two ocean-view bedrooms are positioned on opposite sides of the villa. Dramatic, Asian-inspired rooflines allow hot air to escape out wooden grilles, creating a thermal-chimney effect that keeps the living spaces cool during tropical summers. Other passive cooling strategies include wide eaves, high ceilings, and cross ventilation.

Standard amenities include spacious bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms with outdoor showers, ceiling fans in bedrooms and in indoor/outdoor living areas, a built-in barbecue grill, and air-conditioning in bedrooms.

Why choose El Encanto?

El Encanto del Sur was founded with two guiding principles: embrace sustainability and support diversity. This philosophy becomes apparent as soon as you visit. To start, acres of untouched forest provide green corridors between lots. These corridors account for nearly 40% of the land in El Encanto. Additionally, we are nearing the completion of our solar grid, which will provide clean energy to our residents.

El Encanto welcomes anyone who seeks to energize our community and grow with us. As a result, our residents include an emergent mix of families and individuals both young and old, local and international. To accommodate the needs of a diverse community, we offer a variety of lot types and custom home designs. If our custom home options don’t meet your needs, we welcome you to design your own home and select your own builder.

If you’re interested in building a future with El Encanto or have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out! We are always growing and excited to talk to anyone and everyone about our community.
