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.

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, five additional bedrooms—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. 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.

Beyond Our Expectations

Stayed Feb 2022

Our group of 11 had the privilege of staying at Casa Fantastica for a week in February 2022. We had an incredible experience that we will never forget. The location of the house has amazing views and allows for repeated visits from some incredible native species – iguanas, squirrel monkeys, capuchin and howler monkeys, toucans and Scarlet macaws. The monkeys were very entertaining and were a highlight of our trip.

Another highlight was the amazing service that was provided by the chef and assistant that we hired for the week – Chef Jorge and Nain. The meals and the service that these two incredible individuals provided was beyond anything we could have imagined. Chef Jorge prepared delicious meals that included tastes of Costa Rica. We were so impressed, we thoroughly enjoyed everything that was prepared for us. Nain is a wonderful assistant, friendly, sincere, kind and thoughtful. We appreciated Nain’s thorough understanding of the English language as that allowed us to communicate seamlessly with both Nain and Jorge. They were accommodating and flexible with our schedules as some ventured out on excursions, hikes and sightseeing. Jorge and Nain were extremely attentive. Their service and professionalism was outstanding and it was an absolute pleasure to get to know them both.

We loved the layout of the house – a unique, open concept style with amazing views in every direction. The pool has a spectacular view overlooking the ocean. The rooms were beautifully laid out and there were a variety of sitting areas where you could socialize, relax or reflect. We had the pleasure of meeting the lovely housekeeping staff, Marjorie, Cynthia and Kimberly. Their professionalism and attention to detail ensures this beautiful house maintains its pristine condition. Every day they greeted us with their smiling faces.

Although this was our first visit to beautiful Costa Rica, it won’t be our last. We look forward to our return to Manual Antonio, to this amazing house and to reconnect with the incredible staff we had the pleasure of meeting. We highly recommend Casa Fantastica, as well as the services provided by Chef Jorge, Nain, Marjorie, Cynthia and Kimberly. Although I didn’t deal directly with Valerie and Fernando, others in our group did and they have nothing but great things to say about the professionalism and the level of service they provided as concierge and contacts for all things local.

Casa Fantastica is without a doubt appropriately named! Thank you for an amazing week. Until we meet again…

Very aptly named-the house was absolutely Fantastic!

Our group enjoyed a wonderful week at Casa Fantastica and felt truly pampered all week. From the beautiful views, to the daily visits of monkeys, birds and more, every day was a wonderful adventure even just laying around the pool.

The house is immaculately kept by Marjorie and the housekeeping staff. The open concept allowed us to experience the beautiful views from every area of the home and the house is well laid out and very spacious.

We opted for the meal plan and I would highly recommend it. Chef Jorge and Nain were extremely friendly and professional and provided us with mouth-watering meals and drinks daily as well as a beautiful presentation at every meal setting. We enjoyed some local Costa Rican favorites as well as other items selected from their extensive menu. They accommodated all of our requests and easily surpassed our expectations with every meal.

There is no question that Chef Jorge and Nain's services made our week stand out in comparison to other vacations we have collectively experienced. Their professionalism and hospitality was top notch and truly made our week on-par with a 5 star resort. They consistently were extremely friendly and went above and beyond. We felt like we were at our very own private all-inclusive!

We highly recommend Casa Fantastica and the services of Jorge, Nain and Marjorie and her staff (as well as Valerie and Fernando with their professional & helpful assistance with the trip planning and excursion bookings).

This was our first time visiting Costa Rica and we fell in love with the country (the rainforest, the wildlife and beautiful beaches) and the people, and we very much look forward to returning.

Beautiful home and amazing experience!

I cannot say enough good things about Casa Fantastica. The house did not disappoint and actually was even more lovely than the pictures showed. The open concept living space was so much fun and so flexible for anything we wanted to do. The pool was beautiful with lots of options for sun or shade and was kept clean all week. And the view… my gosh, we never tired of it. You could hardly tear your eyes away from it. This was our first trip to this area of Costa Rica and it was quite fun to have so much wild life to see just from our seats by the pool… monkeys, macaws, toucans, and other beautiful birds. We did some tours and beach trips, but also spent a great deal of time just relaxing at the beautiful house. It was a very special week and the house was simply lovely.

Marjorie, Cynthia and Kimberly were the cleaning staff and they did a fabulous job keeping the house spotless. It was great to have that service each day and they really did work so hard to keep everything looking like first moment we had walked into the house. They always greeted us with a smile and a hello as they discretely worked away.

I have to say the most special part of the week for us had to be the chef services and specifically Chef Jorge and Nain. They were absolutely fantastic. Our whole group was just thrilled with every meal that was prepared. They worked together as a great team. Everything was done so professionally and made us feel so incredibly special. Chef Jorge made the most fabulous meals. We made some selections of meals choices ourselves and sometimes we just let Chef Jorge make the choices for us. We were always so impressed. We had requested some pre-dinner bartending services and Nain was an awesome bartender making us lovely local specialty drinks. Both Chef Jorge and Nain were always so willing to work with our schedule each day and always came so prepared and organized. They responded to every need we had throughout the week. Our communication with both Chef Jorge and Nain was easy, pleasant and professional. Honestly can’t say enough good things about their services and the delicious food. Highly recommend them!

I would recommend Casa Fantastica to anyone looking for a fabulous and relaxing vacation in a very special place. I have to also mention Valerie who was our concierge prior to the trip and was also available to us while we were down there. She was so helpful at getting us organized before hand and helping us know what to expect upon arrival. She was very responsive each time we reached out, both prior to the trip and during it. We ended up making some last minute plans for excursions and the spa, and she was efficient and organized in making those things happen for us. Valerie was so pleasant and competent to deal with.

If you are thinking of renting a house in Manuel Antonio, I recommend you find a way to get yourself to Casa Fantastica! It is an incredibly special place to be… the location, the house, the view and the staff. Loved it!

Best house and staff in the area.

Casa fantastica was amazing!! We had a group of 11 staying at the house but it could easily have held 20 people. There were lots of spaces available for seating options both indoor and outdoor. The back of the house opens completely with sliding glass doors so there is an open air feel to the house. The location at the top of the jungle made for amazing visits from all three species of monkeys, iguanas and lots of birds including Scarlett macaws and toucans. We even saw an anteater! The best part of this house was the staff. Marjorie and the house cleaning staff were amazing and very friendly. We had the all inclusive plan which I would highly recommend. Jorge was our chef and Niam was his assistant. They both made our vacation extra special! The food they made was amazing and they made us feel like we were family, we felt very spoiled!!! Our stay here was very special and we would recommend this house and Jorge and Niam to everyone!!!! They not only provided us with amazing meals but also were friendly and accommodated my vegan diet at every meal. We loved them and hope to be able to come back again soon!!! (This is my second trip to this area and casa fantastica exceeded all expectations).
