"Desiderata" (Latin word for : "those things worthy of desire ") The luxurious home is located in the tropical southern zone jungle of Costa Rica , aptly referred to as “ where the mountains meet the sea ” and situated 750 feet above sea level thrusting 150’ forward from the mountainside like the prow of a ship . The site boasts a 270 degree cinemascope view of prime rainforest and fertile valleys. Villa Desiderata might poetically be viewed as a ” a penthouse apartment floating above the jungle canopy”
