Casa Fantastica

 Exclusive Private and Secluded Luxury Vacation Home in Manuel Antonio / Costa Rica

Casa Fantastica is one of the most beautiful homes in all of Costa Rica. There are 10 bedrooms: three master suites, plus seven comfortable bedrooms with 10 full- and three half-bathrooms. The ocean views from the pool and balconies are nothing short of spectacular. The atmosphere of “modern tropical luxury” envelops you as you enter the home. Private chef services are included with the cost of food, with drinks being additional. Ask us about meal plans that include food and beverages. Constructed in 2009, the owners of this resort-style home have designed and built some of the finest and most luxurious homes in the area.

Location: This very private neighborhood is all residential. The villa is specially located in the green forests of Manuel Antonio, secluded from other houses. Being so close to the beach, you can hear the comforting sounds of the Pacific. Not far from the center of Manuel Antonio, you will have all kinds of small restaurants and shops to choose from. Not far is Quepos, a coastal town featuring the recently built Pez Vela Marina.

View:  To state it simply, the view here is breathtaking, with the Pacific coastline stretching out before you. Since the home is so secluded, there are no other buildings or homes obstructing your view – nothing but the beauty of nature laid out before you.

Wildlife: There is a large variety of wildlife that shows up at Fantastica’s doorstep. The Titi and White-faced monkeys will entertain you, and the Howler monkeys will serenade you. Exotic butterflies and tropical birds spread their wings in the lush foliage and gardens that were created with wildlife habitats in mind. Other small mammals such as kinkachoos and sloths can also be spotted in the acre of land that is maintained by Casa Fantastica’s owner.

This spacious 12,000-square foot house features two wings with a total of 10 bedrooms on four levels. The home is constructed using the best natural materials, including exotic woods, limestone, custom tiles, and terrazzo, as well as many functional and artful uses of glass. The Grand Salon is at the entry level. This expansive space is perfect for large parties, yet is very comfortable and welcoming. It features a gourmet kitchen, indoor and outdoor dining for 12, two outdoor living rooms, a BBQ, a large bar and two half-baths. The large infinity-edge pool features a 20-person solar heated whirlpool. The upper level has several covered balconies, a spectacular master suite, and three master bedrooms. The game room, gym, and cinema are on the game room level, along with three luxury bedrooms and 3.5 baths. On the lower level is the spa, with two master suites and a luxury bedroom.

The Kitchen: The kitchen features restaurant-quality appliances such as a six-burner stove, large microwave and oven, dishwasher, three sinks, additional drink fridge, and 20-bottle wine chiller. Beautiful woodwork frames the granite countertops. From the large sinks, you can see the pool and double-size BBQ as well as the green valley and ocean beyond. The kitchen has a full complement of dishes, flatware, and glasses, making it perfect for catering to large parties. Chef service is included for two meals a day; the cost of food is additional.

The Pool: At 18 meters long and 10 meters wide, it is one of the largest in the country for a private home. The shallow water of the pool forms a “beach” that allows easy entry into the pool. Comfortable lounge chairs ring the pool beneath the cooling fronds of a 30-foot palm tree. The warm-water whirlpool seats 20 and flows into the adjacent pool. Relax and enjoy the magnificent view of Manuel Antonio National Park and the small Pacific islands dotting the bay.

The Dining Room: The dining room has spectacular glass walls that seem to disappear, allowing the views of the pool, ocean, and garden to flow into the room. The elegant granite dining table seats 12 in luxurious leather and wood chairs. There are two rectangular granite tables near the pool. These tables seat an additional twelve guests and can be relocated to accommodate large groups.

Outdoor Living Rooms: The most welcoming rooms in the house are the two covered outdoor living areas, situated to enjoy the cool ocean breezes with the soothing motion of ceiling fans. Just outside the grand salon with its expansive wall of windows, the oversized sofa and comfortable lounge chairs look out over the crystal-clear pool and are shaded by the high bamboo ceiling. Crossing to the western side of the home, the other shaded living room is between the “beach” and the grand salon.

The spacious 1,000-square foot room has dramatic window walls that slide away to reveal the gorgeous view and allow the cool ocean breezes to flow throughout the area. It provides ample space to host a large group with its 4-person marble table, seven club chairs, four sofas, and 15-foot bar with beverage fridge and seating for eight. For entertainment, the area features a flat-screen TV, stereo with iPod dock and DVD. In the front of the room, 25-feet wide windows open up to the pool and the Pacific. Another side is high above the jungle floor and looks out through the windows into the lush forest.

Master Suites: There are three master suites, one on the upper level and two on the lower level. The master suite on the top level of the eastern wing has a leather-backed king-size bed, a large bar with mini-kitchen, vanity, dressing area and security safe. While relaxing in lounge chairs on its large private balcony, you can take in the panoramic view of the beach, ocean, and rainforest. Exotic details of the room include large bamboo double doors, frosted glass walls, and travertine marble accents. The spa-style master bathroom is quite spectacular. The view of the ocean and beach is welcomed into the room through a large glass wall on the western side. Hanging from the bamboo ceiling, the platform shower has a large rain showerhead. The base of the shower is smooth green glass, edged with pebbles, allowing the water to flow gently downward. Turquoise glass tiles form the sides of the large bathtub. The first master suite on the lower level features a private balcony, pedestal king-size bed, vanity, wet bar, and a large bathroom with multiple shower heads. The second master on the lower level also features a king-size bed, sitting area, desk, and large bathroom with whirlpool tub. All bedrooms have the finest luxurious 500-count cotton sheets. Luxurious bathrobes and fragrant tropical soaps are also supplied.

Upper-Level Luxury Bedrooms: Three large bedrooms on the top level in the western wing have large closets, king-size beds, marble and limestone baths with jacuzzi tubs and showers. They share lovely outdoor terraces with ocean or jungle views.

Middle and Lower-Level Luxury Bedrooms: There are four more spacious jungle-view bedrooms on the middle and lower levels on the western side. These rooms, 10 to 20 feet above the jungle floor, are perfect for spotting the visiting monkeys, birds, and butterflies. Three of these bedrooms have king beds. The other have two twin beds and a twin day bed; two of the twins can be combined into a king bed. Each has its bathroom with beautifully tiled showers, and two have unique waterfall sinks. All bedrooms feature quality linens and amenities.

Game Room: Everyone will find something to enjoy in the large game room. The play area includes a regulation-size pool table, ping pong table, darts, and foosball table. A long bench seat is framed by the view of the ocean and jungle. The glass-bottomed pond above the pool enhances the atmosphere of the room with its soft light.

Gym: The 500-square foot gym has large windows and two mirrored walls. Equipment includes two stationary bikes, a universal machine, weights, a massage table and open space for yoga, Pilates or private training.

Cinema: The cinema has comfortable seating for 30, a digital projector and sound system, large fridge and microwave oven. Movies can be borrowed from the Escape Villas office, or rented in Quepos. This room can also sleep up to five additional guests.

Wedding Tent and Dance Floor: Dance the night away in this elegant tent with a wooden dance floor. Outfitted with brocade valance and flowing ivory curtains, it is set up in the tropical entrance garden at the front of the villa. Two 42” shell chandeliers provide romantic evening light for seated dinners up to 80 people, and cocktail or dance parties up to 100 guests.

Spa: Plan a day of indulgence in your private spa without even leaving the villa. Three treatment rooms are located on the lower level of the home. Sliding walls can be adjusted to accommodate complete privacy or a more open, party arrangement of up to four tables. The spa has been designed so that the jungle fauna just outside of the trellised walls may be enjoyed. Sounds of wildlife and rustling palms will relax the senses while you treat yourself to a massage, manicure, pedicure, facial or full body treatment.

Staff: Let our dedicated staff pamper you beyond belief; including two housekeepers six days a week, a chef for two meals a day, gardener, pool man and handyman on call at all times. The Escape Villas staff can arrange local transportation, tours, and spa treatments. They will be happy to share their knowledge of Manuel Antonio and assist you in any way they can to make your vacation at Casa Fantastica genuinely memorable.

    Our entire group cannot say enough about our stay at Casa Fantastica!! Our son chose Costa Rica as his "graduation destination", and working with everyone at Escape Villas was so easy! The property itself was breathtaking, and Esteban, Memo, and the entire staff were UNBELIEVABLE!!! Each meal was more glorious than the next, everyone went above and beyond to accommodate whatever we requested! We cannot wait to book a return trip for sure!!

    Amazing Home!!!

    We stayed here for a week in November for my brother and sister in law's wedding and what an experience!!!
    From the moment we arrived to the moment we sadly had to leave, we enjoyed our time. The home is huge with beautiful rooms with views of the Pacific, the jungle or a little of both. Ricky our concierge was fabulous at booking excursions and spa treatments (at the private spa rooms in the home)!!!
    Our private chef and his team whipped up delicious food all week and especially for the wedding ceremony. I would absolutely recommend this home!!!

    Pictures just don’t do this place justice!! Words can’t explain how absolutely fantastic this home truly is! We just had the pleasure of staying at Casa Fantastica for 4 nights and we were blown away! Valerie and Fernando who helped us set up everything were amazing and such a pleasure to deal with. Once we checked in we were greeted by Ricky who gave us a tour of the whole house and made sure we had everything we needed. He was available to us the whole time and answered every question or any issue we had immediately. Our chefs Esteban and Carlos were fantastic!! The food was five star and always prepared perfect! The table was always beautifully set up and they went out of their way to get us things we requested! The house keepers are hands down the best I’ve ever seen! They clean every inch of this extremely large house and everything was so perfectly maintained and just absolutely beautiful! We didn’t even want to leave the house we spent all of ate nights there and most of our days. We were visited daily by monkeys, birds, a sloth and many more exotic animals. Which made us never want to leave! Can’t wait to go back! We will see you next year Casa Fantastica!
