About the home

In the world of luxury home rentals, this 10-bedroom, 10-full-baths villa in Costa Rica is a gem. Situated in a gorgeous part of the tropics that overlooks the Pacific Ocean and world renowned Manuel Antonio National Park, seclusion and complete privacy are yours. Some of the area’s best restaurants and white sand beaches are situated less than a mile away.

The Grand Entry Level

A 12,000 sq. ft., 4-level villa—appointed throughout with rarefied woods, travertine marble, limestone, glass, terrazzo, tile work, and copper—is divided into two wings. The entrance area sets the stage. A wall of water cascades next to the front door, providing a beach-rinsing foot bath. Just inside the almond wood front door, a papyrus water garden sits in an oval, glass-bottom pond which looks down into the game room.

Perfect for large parties, the entry level hosts a 1,000 sq. Ft. grand salon—complete with a faux crocodile-topped bar where you can mix up your preferred drinks and ample seating areas, flat screen TV, and stereo system—and two outdoor living rooms. There are indoor and outdoor dining rooms (each seating 12) as well. A completely equipped, stainless steel and granite, restaurant-quality gourmet kitchen is separated from the dining area by a cabinet wall and window, through which you can glimpse your private chef in action. The entry level also includes a BBQ, two half baths, a hotel-size infinity edge pool, and a huge, 20-person, solar-heated whirlpool.

This villa was designed to embrace an indoor outdoor lifestyle and to create a central living space that brings the outdoors inside. The layout and open air doors allows guests to enjoy the surrounding nature without the need for air conditioning.  

The Bedrooms

The upper level, with its covered balconies, has a large master suite and three more master bedrooms, all very private overlooking either ocean or jungle with their own bathrooms. The master suite, boasting peerless ocean and rain forest views, a luxury king-size bed (with 500-count Egyptian cotton bedding, feather and hypo-allergenic pillows), a bar and dressing area with a full vanity. The spa-like master bath features a platform shower with a rain shower head hanging from a 12-foot bamboo ceiling. The opposite is a huge, turquoise-glass bathtub, and a separate toilet and bidet. If that is not enough your suite also features a private balcony lounge area.

The two lower levels feature a second master suite and five additional guest suites—each with its own bath and all air-conditioned.  The second master suite boasts all of the same amenities as the first, though it is encased it lush tropical rain forest. Four of the guest suites have a king each and one has 2 twins and a twin day bed, the two twins can be converted to a king. All the bedrooms are custom decorated for luxury and relaxation, with tropical soaps and bathrobes, and steel safes for valuables.

The Spa

Our in-house spa offers three fully equipped treatment rooms in a nurturing tropical environment where you can relax your body, revitalize your mind, and renew your spirit! Schedule some private pampering, a couples massage, or let your troubles melt away with a bridal-party spa session. Available in-house spa services include deep-tissue, reflexology, and Thai massage, thermal mud wraps, chocolate/coffee body scrubs, and tropical enzyme polishes.

The Game Room, Gym and Cinema

Come on down to the lower level for some fun and fitness! The game room has a regulation-size pool table, Foosball, ping pong, darts, and is lined on one side with banquette seating and ocean views. The 500 sq. Ft. air-conditioned gym hosts two stationary bikes, an electronic treadmill, dial weights, a Universal machine, mats, ball, and space for private training, yoga, and Pilates classes. The air-conditioned cinema, with tiered sofa seating for 26, has a digital projector, and a large fridge and microwave for popcorn and snacks.

Flora and Fauna

Wildlife is abundant in Manuel Antonio and includes monkeys, sloths, kinkajou’s, butterflies, and several species of exotic birds. The grounds of Casa Fantastica are planted with tropical specimens which encourage wildlife visits, and the views from the entire house are designed to make the most of this fantastic setting. It is not uncommon to have monkeys swing down by the pool for a quick hello.  The grand salon features a wall of floor-to-ceiling windows, 30 feet up, overlooking this rain forest panorama.

Wedding Tent and Dance Floor

To create a party in paradise, our elegant wedding tent with wooden dance floor may be set up on the grass lawn. A brocade valance with silk tassels in ivory and natural linen will complement any color scheme. Two 42″ puka-shell chandeliers complement candlelight in the evening hours. With room for 70 diners and dancers, the tent can accommodate a live band, a DJ, or your own iPod/iPad music.

Staff and Services

Casa Fantastica has two housekeepers on staff six days a week to take care of all of your cleaning needs. There is also a gardener and a pool man, and a handyman on 24-hour call. A private chef is included for two meals a day, though the cost of food and drinks is additional. We can also offer you meal plans to include the food and drinks; please ask us for details. Our concierge and host can arrange some of the best Costa Rican tours, transportation, and in-house spa services, and can answer any questions you may have about this beautiful part of the world.

Exceptional stay!

Stayed Oct 2023
I rented out Casa Fantastica for my 50th birthday celebration and brought 20 of my friends and family members. I have been to Manuel Antonio many times and have wanted to stay at Casa Fantastica for more than a decade. Our recent stay at your property was nothing short of magical, and I wanted to express my sincere appreciation for the outstanding experience you've created. Your villa seamlessly blends the natural beauty of Costa Rica with modern luxury, creating an atmosphere of sophistication and comfort that captivated me and all my guests from the moment we first arrived. Every day we saw monkeys, sloths, toucans, red macaws. We were all particularly fond of getting daily visits from the squirrel monkeys. What a treat! One of the standout elements of our visit was undoubtedly the exceptional chef services you provide at Casa Fantastica. Although I opted for the full meal plan, I expected that my friends would venture out on occasion to have dinner at one of the various wonderful restaurants in Manuel Antonio. Aside from one planned dinner out for the birthday celebration, I am happy to tell you that every member of our party ate every single meal at the house. Kim and Chef Jorge exceeded our highest expectations. Chef Jorge’s culinary creations were nothing short of spectacular, and each meal was a true masterpiece. From breakfasts featuring fresh tropical fruits and perfectly cooked eggs to dinners highlighting the vibrant flavors of Costa Rican cuisine, Kim and Jorge’s expertise was apparent in every bite. The dining experience on the terrace, with its breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, made every meal an unforgettable event. It is safe to say that we were all sad to say goodbye to Kim and Jorge. Not only was the food incredible, but their hospitality was sensational. The staff at Casa Fantastica are a credit to your commitment to excellence. From the host Ricky who assisted us with our various requests to the housekeeping team that maintained our villa in impeccable condition, we felt incredibly well cared for throughout our stay. Your villa's amenities, such as the infinity pool, hot tub, and outdoor lounging areas, offered unparalleled relaxation and enjoyment. The daily spectacle of the sunset over the ocean was truly a highlight, and it's a memory that me and my friends will forever cherish. Casa Fantastica provided an unforgettable vacation experience, and I wanted to express my gratitude for sharing your remarkable property with us. Your dedication to providing a luxurious and tranquil escape is apparent in every detail. The chef services added an extra layer of brilliance to our stay, making it truly exceptional. Thank you for providing such a magnificent haven in paradise.

My friends and I loved staying here so much! The view is breath taking. The entire house and surroundings are so beautiful you will not want to leave!

Great house for our family!

Stayed Jul 2023
My family stayed at the property for a week in late July. There were 12 of us, ranging in age from 11 to 75. The house was perfect for us! We used 7 bedrooms, of which our host Ricky let us pick which ones we wanted to use when he met us for the walkthrough. All of the rooms are en suite and nicely furnished, though some are more simple than others. All have king beds with the exception of one room with 3 twin beds. The pictures made this room look pretty small but it was spacious enough for 2 tween boys and I think 3 would have been fine in there as well. We also ended up using one of the futons from under the bed in another room, which was basically a mattress on a pallet on the floor, and this worked well for my 11 year old. All of the rooms have good air conditioning. The water temperature can be a little finicky but we didn't have a major issue with this. Overall everyone was very happy with their rooms.
The house in general is spectacular. The pool is one of the biggest I've seen, and only about 4.5 feet throughout, which was perfect for all we wanted it for. It is also warm but still refreshing. The "hot tub" tends to be warmer than the pool, but not a true hot tub, which was really fine for our purposes. It is very large and probably would have fit our whole group if we wanted. The areas around the pool were perfect for lounging, and there were plenty of spaces around the property for people to find spots of privacy or to do the things they wanted without disturbing others. We used the gaming tables and the movie room, and they were all awesome!
The wildlife around the house was stunning. Honestly, we went to Manuel Antonio and experienced nothing that we didn't experience better at the house! The official end count was 2 sloths, countless monkeys of all 3 types, iguanas, geckos, toucans, parrots, macaws, a daily hawk visit, and even a kinkajou. The monkeys came by everyday, and while the howlers weren't as visible as the other 2, we heard them every night! The squirrel monkeys would play on the deck for close to an hour at times. And we didn't feed them (though I suspect others do), it seemed to be a place they would stop to play and drink some pool water on their way home each night. Between the wildlife and the lush surroundings, we really knew that we were in the rain forest, and felt like we got to experience a true side of Costa Rica.
The location of the house is very good. It is about halfway up the hill in the area, so has a good view. We didn't try to walk to the beach, but a few did walk back, which took about 45 minutes. There may have been a better way than the way they took though. Rides are easy to come by and reasonably priced. The beach is about a 7 minute drive maybe. We did walk to/from the stores/restaurants on the top of the hill once. The driveway is quite steep, but it is only about 60 yards long, and the rest of the incline is pretty mild. So there are bars/restaurants/some shops to walk to, but it's about a 20-30 minute walk, depending on fitness and where you want to go.
Ricky was very responsive to several of our questions/requests. We felt like we could always ask for (and get!) whatever we wanted. Natalia did a great job of taking care of us during our pool time happy hour, which was an extra cost but fun to do a few nights. Chef Junior and his sous chef David were a treat! It didn't take long for us to realize we were in good hands and just pretty much let him come up with the menus for what he thought was good to make. They did not let us down! We did BBQ, taco nights, ceviche, burgers, lots of fish, steak, and of course gallo pinto. He has an extensive menu and hit everything out of the park, especially desserts!
A special shout out to Valerie, our concierge, who was very patient with me over months of planning, answering all of my questions in a timely and efficient manner. She put together a great experience for us, and helped plan everything we asked for. We LOVED the ATV tour, that is a day I think we will all always remember. The catamaran charter was fun but felt a little rushed, and had the worst snorkeling I've ever seen. Our MA guide had a major issue getting us into the park but once in he did a great job. The chocolate tour was a highlight for us, we all learned a lot and enjoyed the tastings. The beach in the area is pretty nice, soft, clean sand and very warm water, though the rip tide means there is not much to do in the water. The waverunners were fun though. The beach concierge was invaluable, not only having shade and chaise lounges set up, but also having a trustworthy person there to keep scammers away and organize the activities we wanted to do. Like most beaches of this type, there are locals selling their wares, but they take a "no thank you" easily and do not bother you. We felt very safe our whole time in MA, whether at the house, on the excursions, or at the beach.
I really think if you are looking for a place in MA, your search ends here. I looked at many places, and not only was this house a great value, but having experienced it I feel confident in saying you will have an amazing experience here!

I highly recommend Casa Fantastica!

The reviews do not give justice to this Villa. Casa Fantastica was ideal for our two families of 23 people ranging in ages from 5-75. The pool, the rooms, the views, the frequent visits by the local monkies and sloths, were a delight to everyone. Chef Junior provided us with a gourmet meal each and every breakfast and dinner. Everyone was welcoming and were there to make our short visit a special one. My family will have lasting memories for the rest of their lives. It was truly FANTASTIC!

Aptly Named

Our family of twelve had the most amazing vacation at Casa Fantistico! We were greeted by Marjorie and she couldn’t have been more welcoming.
The house had more than enough room for all of us. The pool and hot tub were used all day every day! The kids loved when the monkeys visited.
Ricky was great arranging all of transportation needs and hiring a guide for Manuel Antonio National Park…it’s a must see!
The country is beautiful and the people are so kind.
We loved Chef Junior and David!! They are the best. Every meal was wonderful. Even the picky eaters were happy!
I can’t wait to return to beautiful Costa Rica and the wonderful people of Casa Fantistico!
