Casa de Luz strives to be the Tamarindo area’s most environmentally-friendly villa rental and estate and is the only beach villa rental in the area that delivers any of the following:
Massive energy efficiency & demand reduction to minimise 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 which provides most electrical needs on-site and banks 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 using much cheaper and harsh chemicals.
The first ozone laundry system in Guanacaste, which reduces laundry chemicals reaching the septic system by 50%, while sanitising hundreds of times better, eliminates the need for hot water, and the need for fabric softener and its unhealthy residues all the while leaving one's 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 very same method preferred by bottled water companies. Ozone reduces chemical use by over 90% while sanitising up to 3,000 times better, eliminating 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 optimise each waste stream’s processing.
SOLAR POWER SYSTEM:
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, allows Casa de Luz to remove over half its former energy use from the grid, offsetting the equivalent carbon of 56 trees in its very first month of operation!
This state-of-the-art solar array covers 13 different roof planes on the main house which delivers 25kW from 80 solar cells and uses 80 micro-inverters to avoid shading issues – that’s basically commercial scale. Casa de Luz “banks” its solar power by selling energy to the grid when the estate is vacant and getting it back when a large event turns on all the air conditioners and lighting.
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, the roof features veritable insulation sandwiched between its corrugated metal section and the home's ceiling, very rare in Costa Rica, which increases your comfort while significantly lowering electricity costs.
Second, the roof is fully-encapsulated with a high-tech polymer on the exterior. The clay tiles are glued on instead of nailed, thus there are zero roof penetrations or leaks, even under torrid tropical downpours. Thousands of potential leak points are found in the typical roof of even the finest Costa Rican homes given they do not use this type of system. In addition to the much increased comfort and energy savings, there are zero critter entries so common in these parts (IE; Iguanas, Bats, Insects etc).
To sum it all up, Casa de Luz, is a one-of-a- kind property whose equity appreciation shall continue to compound year after year, not to mention its excellent income stream of rental income, both facts worthy of catching the attention of any investor.
