Casa de Luz strives to be the Tamarindo area’s most eco-friendly villa rental and estate. We believe Casa de Luz is the only beach villa rental in the area that delivers ANY of the following, much less all of them:
Massive energy efficiency & demand reduction to minimize energy footprint with a high-tech insulated roof, LED lighting, double-pane coated windows and distributed inverter ACs.
The Tamarindo area’s first large-scale solar array, to provide most of our electrical needs on-site and bank excess power for later use (25kW from 80 panels on 13 roof planes).
Commitment to using/providing biodegradable household and personal cleaning products for every purpose possible instead of much cheaper harsh chemicals.
The first ozone laundry system in Guanacaste, which reduces laundry chemicals reaching our septic by 50% while sanitizing hundreds of times better, eliminates the need for hot water, and eliminates fabric softener and its unhealthy residues while leaving laundry much cleaner, healthier, and fluffier.
The first ozone swimming pool system in Guanacaste to ensure the cleanest, healthiest, least polluting pool on the coast, using the method preferred by bottled water companies. Ozone reduces chemical use over 90% while sanitizing up to 3,000 times better, and eliminates cloudiness, bloodshot eyes, skin irritation, damaged bathing suits and bleached or green hair.
Excess septic tank capacity and separate tanks for kitchen, laundry, and baths to optimize each waste stream’s processing before release to the environment.
Casa de Luz has the first and only large-scale solar installation of any villa in the area. This combined with demand reduction investments, like a high-tech roof and all-LED lighting, allowed us to remove over half our former energy use from the grid, and we offset the equivalent carbon of 56 trees in our first month!
A state-of-the-art solar array covers 13 different roof planes on the main mansion which delivers 25kW from 80 solar cells and uses 80 micro-inverters to avoid shading issues – that’s commercial scale. In Costa Rica, we “bank” solar power by selling energy to the grid when the estate is vacant and we get it back when a large event turns on all the air conditioners.
Under the solar array is a very different roof than 99.99% of Costa Rican homes. Only two homes in all of Guanacaste have it.
First, it is insulated under the corrugated metal, which is very rare in Costa Rica, but it increases your comfort and cuts AC costs.
Second, the roof is fully-encapsulated with a high-tech polymer on the exterior. The clay tiles are glued on instead of nailed, so there are zero roof penetrations that can leak. Thousands of potential leak points are on the typical roof of even the nicest home in Costa Rica, because they do not use this system. In addition to increased comfort,
no leaks, no critter entries and slashing air conditioning costs by 20% plus.
