Casa Dolce Vita

This first-class resort home is situated on the highest hill in Manuel Antonio. Its 270° panoramic vista allows direct views from every room to the world-famous National Park, Pacific Ocean, and white sand beaches. Sit back and relax on the balcony, drinking some genuine Costa Rican Coffee while monkeys play in the trees nearby. Native crafted mats and bamboo create a magnificent 15-foot ceiling supported by hardwood columns and hand-carved stone supports.

The six ceiling fans in this lofty, airy space create a gentle breeze day and night. The room is open on the sides and affords the spectacular views that make this house so unique.Each bedroom at the Casa Dolce Vita is air-conditioned for your comfort and also comes with amazing views from the windows.

There are two master suites in this 3,900-square foot vacation house. Both have king-sized beds, large terraces, and baths with Jacuzzi tub and stone showers with multiple jets.

The other two bedrooms have queen beds and equally beautiful views. All of the bathrooms feature hand-carved stone or glazed earthenware bowl sinks.

Details include custom tiles and stonework, exotic woods, tropical landscaped gardens, and fountains. The art has been carefully chosen from around the world to create this unique blend of luxury with a tropical ambiance.

A large balcony surrounds the 25-foot private pool overlooking the ocean. Two tile chaise lounges are submerged in shallow water to enjoy while gazing at the condors soaring below you.

The sounds of the birds, the trickling fountain and the surf crashing on the beach will soothe you as you enjoy this beautiful home.

Designed by an award-winning decorator, this beautiful home is located in a gated community near the famous Mariposa and Si Como No hotels. It is just a 20-minute flight from San Jose.

The many adventures here make Manuel Antonio one of the most popular destinations in Costa Rica. These include world-class sportfishing, canopy tours, surfing, horseback riding, and whitewater rafting.

Exploring the area is an absolute must if you want to see local wildlife and plants. Our full-time property manager will arrange tours or anything else you may need.

    We had 8 guests at Casa Dolce Vita for a week in February. The house was exactly as described - with amazing views of the Pacific Ocean. Our host Ricky was accessible as needed and let us in the house as soon as we arrived to town. Valerie was amazing in the pre-planning process and helping to arrange all our excursions (everything was well executed). We greatly enjoyed the maid service + our chef Stephane, which added to our relaxation and overall vacation. We would love to return to Casa Dolce Vita. Manuel Antonio is a beautiful location.

    First, what a fabulous home! The Casa Dolce Vita is perfect! I did not see, nor could I imagine a nicer spot to stay! Second, the Costa Rican people are so nice and so helpful! Third the jungle is such an amazing place-so incredibly alive and active! I can only add that the monkeys stole our hearts-they seemed to know how much we loved them and responded by allowing us to be very close to them-they fed out of our hands! We leave with our hearts full of the spirit of Costa Rica and we hope to return one day!"
