Nothing short of amazing
It's been a month since I stayed at Casa Fantastica and for a month, I along with all my friends have been depressed. My group of 19 was able to stay here for a week and we were spoiled the entire time. The place is known locally throughout Manuel antonio as one top houses in the area. The view of the pacific ocean from the infinity pool is surreal and as all the other reviewers have said before, the pictures online can't truly do it justice. All the bedrooms were spacious, well kept and well air-conditioned. Except for Sunday, the rooms and the house were cleaned every morning and the maids did everything to keep the house spotless, they even brought in fresh flowers daily. From the bar to the game room to the kitchen, the house had everything we needed to relax all day and party all night. Ricky, our host, was always just a phone call away and helped with everything. From getting taxis to unlocking safes that we accidentally locked ourselves out of to organizing buses to and from the airport, Ricky and his team were there. However, the true star of the house was Stephan, our cook. We foolishly did dinner in Quepos for a night and quickly realized that nothing matched the quality, cost and convenience of having him make amazing feasts in our own kitchen. He is extremely talented and has cooked all over the world at some of the finest restaurants. Even with all his talent, we only had to pay for the cost of food, so it never cost more than 15 dollars per day for both breakfast and dinner. From his shrimp to mahi-mahi to his chicken, each meal was simply delicious. Stephan was even able to get us the exact birthday cakes we wanted, one peanut butter and one red-velvet. Not enough can be said about how the house, the staff and the view. I spent over a year and a half planning for this trip and everything about this house has exceeded my expectations. If you are looking for the very best place in manuel antonio, honestly look no further...it's Casa Fantastica.

Amazing! Highly recommend this home, it is gorgeou
Wow -- this villa is just spectacular! I traveled with a group of 19 and we stayed at this home the second week of May 2013. When we arrived at the home, we were speechless.. it's literally breathtaking, the views, bedrooms, kitchen, bathrooms - everything. When we arrived, we were greeted by Ricky, the house manager, who was just absolutely so friendly and helpful. Stephan our chef was amazing!!! I can't even tell you how wonderful he and his sous chef were, the food was spectacular! We hired him for breakfast and dinner nearly every night. His quality, professionalism and skill is unmatched, we ate so incredibly well, it was unbelievable! I highly recommend his banana pancakes and seafood dishes. The cleaning ladies were so sweet, friendly and trustworthy. Multiple times I left valuables out (sometimes forgetting to put them in the safe -iphone, ipad, etc) and nothing was ever touched. They made us feel incredibly safe! The house is sooo beautiful, I've never seen any view so spectacular, it's a hidden gem.

We had a BALL!
The house is spectacular and the pictures don't even do it justice. The support system there is A-1, our Chef Chris was tremendous, the cleaning girls, Valerie, all of our activities were top notch and the best part is that the family unit got along super. Thank you so much for all your help in the planning. We had the trip of a lifetime and you helped make it happen.

Thank YouGuest comment entered by owner
Just wanted to thank you for everything you set up to make our stay enjoyable at Casa Fantastica last week. Everyone had a great time. I must also tell you that, for the first time, we had a smooth, problem-free pick up from San Jose airport. It was nice to arrive and have everyone be where they were supposed to be for our pickup. Thank you so much, again,
