  • Seclusion, privacy, comfort, and an adventure of a lifetime

    "Waking up in the middle of the rainforest in your own private villa is one of those experiences I'll never forget. The sounds of exotic birds calling and the cool morning mountain breezes brought a stillness and sense of calm to my soul. The sheer beauty of this estate is breathtaking. There are picturesque views from the road leading to the estate, from your balconies and all over the grounds which you have all to yourself. To be able explore the famous Manuel Antonio ran forest at your leisure, enjoy the many jaw dropping waterfalls with swimming pools and roaring Naranjo river is an experience of a lifetime. The villa is beautiful and comfortable. We never needed for anything. Definitely set up dinner with Chef Edgar, you will not be disappointed! I've worked in high end restaurants for over a decade and Edgar blew our minds! Our stay was geared towards a romantic getaway, which Deborah flawlessly executed by setting the tone with fresh exotic flowers, luxurious linens and bedspreads. Honeymooning here would be amazing! That being said, it would also be a great place for a family as it is a nice sized villa with acres upon acres to explore and get some space. There is a perfect mix of untouched forest and landscaped grounds that are easy to navigate. I would definitely stay here again!"

  • Perfect Getaway!

    "My husband and I went to Costa Rica for our Honeymoon. We had the pleasure of staying in Casa Escondida for a whole week. I can not say enough wonderful things about this beautiful home. It was exactly as described. We loved how open the house was with all the windows and doors. We stayed here for a week and then decided to travel for another week. I wish we stayed here the whole time instead. We met Ricardo(the caretaker) and spent a lot of time with him. He made our stay such a great experience. He took us to do so many things. We barely understood him and he barely understood us but it didn't matter....we made it work. It was nice to just lay in the hammocks outside with a couple of beers and just watch the Tucans and listen to all the sounds of wildlife all around. My husband and I aren't really in to doing a lot of Touristy stuff and this was the place to just sit back, relax, surf etc.... I highly recommend staying here if you're looking for a home away from home! :)"

  • Costa Rica - Paradise

    "Casa de Carroll was great. We stayed for one week and would definitely go back. The home is exactly as shown in the pictures and was a great base for our adventures. Our party included 2 adults and 4 kids (18, 18, 16, 12). The owner and local manager were always responsive to our questions before and during our stay. We saw monkeys, birds and a horse (in the pasture below the house) on a daily basis. The location was perfect and made excursions to Ojochal, Uvita, Dominical and other areas within easy driving distance. The home is very private....you don't see another house or person while on property. Most evenings were spent in the pool after a long day at the beach or exploring. The house was well equipped and had almost everything we needed (cooking utensils, pool towels, hammocks, hair dryer, etc.). A couple of maintenance issues were addressed quickly by the local manager. I highly recommend Tito at Uvita360 if you want to rent surf boards. We rented the boards and took them to Playa Hermosa, our favorite beach. Whitewater rafting with Karlos and his son, Ernesto, from Autentico Adventures was a fun day. Osa Canopy Tour was exhilarating. The ATV tour with Diamante Tours was cool. We saw waterfalls and panoramic views that we probably would have missed otherwise. The waterfall at El Pavon is not to be missed (not part of the ATV tour). Be advised that eating out in Costa Rica is not cheap. I highly recommend eating at the local sodas and buying fruit at the roadside stands ...it will save you A LOT OF MONEY. The local grocery stores were well stocked, too. Exchange your currency for Costa Rican Colones. For the best exchange rate go to a bank, not the airport currency exchange. Bank = 528 Colones per $1USD v Airport Currency Exchange = 460 Colones per $1USD (13% difference!!). Most local businesses give you 500 Colones....not bad, but exchanging cash currency for Colones at a bank is easy (btw...there is a bank on the top concourse at the SJO airport, don't use the current exchange near baggage claim). My last piece of advice is be sure to have very detailed driving directions from SJO to Casa de Carroll (GPS even better). We got lost in San Jose and on the way to Jaco. You will need about 1,000 Colones for tolls on Route 27. However, once at Casa de Carroll, you will relax and enjoy. Thank you Jim and Patti for sharing your piece of paradise with us."

    "We loved our stay at the villa. We felt safe and enjoyed the beautiful views and sounds every day of our week stay. Early each morning, the birds awake and sing their song of the day which we recorded. We planned to compose music to their songs when we returned but their songs are so beautiful on their own. Staying at this villa, you do not feel like a tourist. The people of Dominical are friendly and accommodating. I purchased a new guitar in San Jose, played it for our stay and left it at the villa for future guests to strum. It is now the Serenity guitar of the villa. Enjoy as I did!"
