Beautiful property, lovely area, great house manager - Should be 5 stars
Two families stayed in the house for 6 days and we had a wonderful time. The house is beautifully decorated and has lots of space for everyone. The layout is perfect, the pool is fabulous, beds were comfortable, the little grocery store down the hill stocks everything you could possibly need. The community pool and restaurant was very nice. The view was amazing, the only downside to that was being on top of the very steep hill, it was not possible to walk to the beach, or anywhere. (Warning, steep hill is not an exaggeration - the hubs had to get used to maneuvering up the hill and into the driveway.)
Edgar, our house manager, was wonderful! He had great suggestions and was very responsive to every concern. We had a few glitches - dishwasher didn't work (they replaced it), Wasp nests in the pergola (Edgar removed them), Magic Jack phone wasn't correctly connected and didn't work when we needed it, grill igniter was out and needed to be lit with a lighter (we bought a battery and a lighter at the local store), no pool skimmer (bugs like to dive bomb into the pool), and there were nightly bat visitations that left droppings all over the patio furniture (we ran the outdoor fans at night to try to deter them, covered the furniture with sheets and wiped the tables down and swept every morning).
This is a 5-star property with an excellent house manager and it would be a 5 star review, except for the various little annoyances. Apparently the owner doesn't come to the house very often, so that would explain most of the little issues we had. Hopefully others won't have the same issues. I would also like to caution anyone who decides to have the house stocked prior to arrival - get a cost estimate beforehand. We ordered 2 cases of water and were shocked that the cost was over $60 - $1.30 per bottle! We bought a case at Walmart in Liberia for $7.
Overall, we had a fabulous time and would definitely come back.
Beautiful property! Gorgeous views! A great experience booking with Zindis group! Not much near. Impossible to walk to/from, so you need taxis which are very expensive. But, overall, a great experience and we loved the home.
The moment we pulled up to Casa Antonelli we were awe-struck by the beauty of the view. We literally felt like we were in paradise or at least a place that the rich and famous stay! The huge infinity pool was a place where we spent a lot of our time relaxing, having fun and simply staring at the spectacular sunsets. The rest of the outdoor are was pretty with the flowers, and there was plenty of space to eat and just enjoy the outdoors. Having the gas grill and outdoor shower were great.
The house itself was impeccable and had a lot of room. It had everything we needed in the full kitchen and we loved the large dining area. The master bedroom on the first floor was very spacious, but the best thing about it was waking up each morning and looking out the glass doors at the amazing ocean & landscape. Two other bedrooms on the second floor had the same view.
After a few hours we had already decided to add another two nights to our stay. Luckily the house was still available and Zindis was very accommodating. The whole Zindis team was helpful and friendly. Edgar showed us everything about the house and was available for us as needed. The office staff gave us tips about restaurants and beaches in the area. We did see monkeys each day at Playa Hermosa.
The location of the house was excellent. We had a car and were able to go to many nearby beaches, and it was only a 10 minute ride into Coco which has a greater variety of restaurants and shops. We liked it being a gated community as well as having the option of going to the community pool.
Overall, we LOVED, LOVED.LOVED this house & would go back in a heartbeat!
"I loved Casa Antonelli"
Playa Hermosa is fantastic and Casa antonelli was the icing on the cake. I was there with my son and some friends for a week. The house is elegant and beautifully appointed and magnificent. It is immaculately maintained. The breathtaking views and glorious sunsets, overlooking the infinity pool, were just priceless. I could not recommend a vacation property or a vacation that was as great as the time we had. It was the perfect place. Fishing, swimming, snorkeling, great (inexpensive to expensive) restaurants and friendly people. Birds, monkeys, side trip to Arenal -- the Costa Rica works! I felt like chucking everything and moving down there with my wife. The weather was perfect every moment of every day. Whoa!!!
Fabulous Place - Fabulous Vacation
Casa Antonelli is a fabulous vacation spot. The home is outstanding - beautiful decor, spacious interior, room for everyone (there were eight of us). Wonderful, well-appointed kitchen. The best part - you could be as active as you wanted (snorkeling, sailing, fishing, zip-lining) or just relax by the pool. The view is spectacular! Watching the sunset every night was very special. Terrific restaurants nearby. Great beaches. Convenient shopping. Definitely worth a return visit.
I had a great experience ...
I had a great experience at Casa Antonelli. The house was well-laid out, spacious, sunny, and with beautiful woodwork. The remote-controlled air conditioning in the bedrooms is an excellent touch. Built on a hill and facing west, the house offers a spectacular view of the ocean from a large patio and beautiful sunsets over an infinity pool. The gated community was safe as well. I highly recommend Casa Antonelli. I plan to return soon.
Explored by horseback, foot, kayak or SUP, all trails lead to waterfalls, misty crater lakes or jungle-fringed, deserted beaches… Try zip lining, canopy tours, hiking, and surfing. Costa Rica’s adventures are all top notch and are all waiting for you.
Playa Hermosa, Playa Panama, And Playas Del Coco are great places to be based out of. Playa Hermosa has one of the safest and calmest beaches in Costa Rica. In these beach towns, you will find and ample amount of restaurants and sodas plus grocery store’s and a few pharmacies. A soda is a small Costa Rican family run restaurant with fresh home cooked food at reasonable prices.
South of Playas Del Coco there are some wonderful beaches to explore for day trips. Playa Conchal, Playa Flamingo, Playa Portrero, and Playa Dante are favorites. Tamarindo and Playa Grand are about 1.5 hours south. These two beaches are wonderful for surfing.
A bit further afield is the Arenal La Fortuna area. It is about a three hour drive Playa Hermosa. At 5,437 feet, the Arenal Volcano looms large and ominous over the pastured green hillsides that surround its base. Although currently in a resting phase, Arenal remained the country’s most active volcano for the past 43 years.
Simply put, Arenal is striking. It is a picture-perfect volcano which dominates the horizon, while rivers and waterfalls tumble through the rainforest that spreads across its base. To the south, the massive Lake Arenal stands sentry to the Tilarán Mountain Range, whose jagged green spine extends along Costa Rica’s central highlands.
From Arenal you can travel to the cloud forest of Monteverde – a nature lover's paradise. The town of Monteverde is fairly small with shopping and some great restaurants Enjoy a nature hike in the Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserve then opt to visit a butterfly garden, zipline through the canopy, or go horseback riding.
Take advantage from our local concierge’s knowledge of the country and come soak up the sun. What are you waiting for?
