Mel Gibson: Playa Barrigona, Costa Rica

If you're looking for utter seclusion and privacy then you can't get much better than this slice of Costa Rican rainforest recently listed for sale by Hollywood actor Mel Gibson. Located in the Nicoya Peninsule, Playa Barrigona features three residences nestled among the hilltop rainforest overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Each of the generously sized villas has been fitted with Costa Rican woods and Spanish and Italian tiles with the largest, Casa Guanacaste, boasting seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms. The remaining villas each have two bedrooms with Casa Barrigona also offering a poolside cottage and Casa Dorada a loft space. Each villa also feature large living spaces with vaulted ceilings, a full kitchen, private pool, barbecue area and multiple verandahs and balconies with jungle and sea views.

Of particular interest to ocean lovers is the white sand beach which is just a moments walk from the residences. Rarely marked on maps, Playa Barrigona is often deserted and has thus become a favoured spot for the olive ridley sea turtles to lay their eggs. Should you wish to see a little more civilisation, the local villages of Samura and Nosara offer quaint restaurants and shops.

Playa Barrigona is listed for sale for $29.75 million with Christie's International Real Estate.
