Property description

From the moment you enter Casa Fantastica you walk into tropical luxury. Boasting one of the best and secluded views in Manuel Antonio it is a rare gem in the world of luxury homes. Casa Fantastica, completed in 2009, is a “Tropical Modern” style resort home that was built by owners that have designed, constructed, and managed the premier rental homes in Manuel Antonio. After 8 years of catering to their customer’s needs, they built the best, and most desirable vacation home in the area; one that would meet all their customer’s expectations, and a little more. Private Chef services are included with the cost of food being additional.

Location:
The villa is located in one of the most exclusive, private, residential areas of Manuel Antonio. Some of the best restaurants and hotels are located less than a mile away. The town of Quepos is 3 miles to the north, and is home to a beautiful new marina.

View:
The view that surrounds this setting is nothing less than spectacular. The rainforest is below, stretching to the beach and the Pacific Ocean, which is decorated with the Manuel Antonio National Park Islands and Cathedral Point Peninsula.

The House
The 10,000 square foot, 3 level, 7 bedroom home is divided into two wings. The materials used are glass, rare woods, travertine marble, limestone, terrazzo, custom ceramic tiles, stucco, stainless steel, and copper.

The entry level features a waterfall entrance, a glass bottom papyrus pond, a Grand Salon with large wet bar, flat screen TV, sound system, 2 outdoor living rooms, 12 seat dining room, outdoor dining area for an additional 12, 2 half baths, BBQ, a gourmet kitchen with granite, stainless steel and wood counters, custom cabinets, 3 sinks, 2 refrigerators, a restaurant quality oven and 6 burner stove.

Outside there is a hotel size pool with beach entry and infinity edge with ocean view, and a 20 person warm water Whirlpool. Very large parties can be hosted in this spectacular yet comfortable entry level.

Bedrooms
The upper level houses the master suite, three master bedrooms, and two, covered balconies with generous seating. The lower level has 2 deluxe bedrooms and additional Master Suite with full baths, a game room, a cinema, and a gym.

There are seven king size bedrooms. All the beds are dressed in 500 count Egyptian cotton sheets with both feather and hypo-allergenic pillows. Every bedroom is air conditioned, and has a steel safe for valuables. The baths have tropical soaps, bathrobes and plenty of towels. Three bedrooms have ocean views, four look into the rainforest.

Game room, gym, cinema
The game room entertains with a regulation size pool table, Foosball, ping pong and darts. Large, ocean view, banquette seating lines one wall.

There is also an air conditioned, 500 sq. foot gym with 2 exercycles, an electronic treadmill, universal machine, dial weights, and space for private classes. The theater is air conditioned, and has a digital projector, sound system, deep sofa seating for 30 and wet bar with fridge and microwave for popcorn and other snacks.

Wedding Tent and Dance Floor
Outfitted with decorative valance and ivory linens this is not your average event tent. Brocade tiebacks, sheer curtains and puka shell chandeliers give this outdoor space a grand feel for up to 80 seated dinner guests or up to 100 dancing party goers. Setup in the grassy tropical garden on the main level it is only steps from the infinity pool, bar, living room, and kitchen. Hire a band, DJ or bring your own iPad/iPod music to have a jungle party.

Spa
The lux spa is conveniently located right in your private villa. Just walk a few steps to the lower level and you’ll find this full service spa abutting the jungle, tucked away from the common areas of the home where you can relax to the sounds of the rainforest. The trellised walls allow the ocean air and your wildlife neighbors to be the only sounds in the secluded space. It’s perfect for individuals or groups with three fully quipped treatment rooms and the option to create a fourth with sliding screens. Our concierge can arrange for manicures, pedicures, massages, facials and other full body treatments for you, couples or spa bridal parties.

Wildlife and Fauna
The wildlife here is abundant. Monkeys are almost daily visitors, and you can count on seeing at least one of the three local species, be it the Titis, Howlers, or White Faced. Small mammals such as sloth and kinkachoos, multitudes of butterflies, and exotic birds to thrill an ornithologist are all included.

The owner of Casa Fantastica also owns an acre of the undeveloped and developed land that surrounds most of the villa. They entire area is planted with species that encourage wildlife visits. Gardens are planted with exotic, tropical specimens and line the public ways.

Staff
Casa Fantastica has two housekeepers who care for the home 6 days a week and will see to all of your cleaning needs. Laundry service is provided bi -weekly for sheets and daily for towels that are left on the floor. Personal items will only be laundered in emergencies. Should you require this service please speak directly to your host. There is a gardener, a pool man, and a maintenance man who is always on call. A private chef is available.

The dedicated staff of Escape Villas is at your disposal 24 hours a day during your vacation. Our concierge and host are available to help make your dream vacation come true. Not only can they arrange tours, transportation, chef, and in-house spa services, but they are also very knowledgeable of the Manuel Antonio area and can answer any questions you may have.
