A Little Piece of Heaven at Casa Celestial

Bedrooms 4
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

Located in a gated community, Casa Celestial is a secluded home perched atop a small mountain peak, allowing for a magnificent 360° view of the ocean and surrounding mountain tops.

This open concept two-level home features 2 Master and 2 Junior suites, all featuring luxurious King & Queen Sheraton Sweet Sleeper Beds.

Walk out to the infinity pool hanging over the edge of the mountain top to sunbathe, take a swim or enjoy a drink. Take in the beautiful ocean views and the most spectacular sunsets you will ever see anywhere in the world! If you need shade and a little bit of peace and quiet, you can also relax on the covered patio with a gorgeous mountain view.

On the open concept main floor you are surrounded by the beauty of nature. In addition to the modern kitchen, dining room, and living room, there is a Junior Suite (with Queen-size bed) with a full bathroom.

On the second floor you will find a TV room (ocean view), 2 Master Suites (King-size beds, ocean/mountain views) with private en suites and a second Junior Suite (Queen-size bed) with private bathroom.

During your stay you may encounter some of the many species of wildlife Costa Rica has to offer. Iguanas, Sloths, White-Tailed Deer, and Armadillos are just some of the animals that have been seen on or around the property. You will also be treated daily to the sight of a wide variety of birds and butterflies, including Macaws feeding off the Casa's almond tree.

Speaking of which, feel free to indulge in all the fresh fruit available to be picked from the trees right on the property, including - among others - Oranges, Limes, Papaya, Chili Peppers, Bananas, Passionfruit, Mandarins, and Plantains.

However, in the interest of full disclosure, we must note the property's single significant issue...

When you stay at Casa Celestial - you will NEVER want to leave!

Amazing property!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful views from the much needed pool when in Costa Rica. The house and ground are well kept and the beds comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with quality dishes and cookware expected of this caliber of home. We ate in most nights and enjoyed our quite time in Tarcoles, for our last week of a four week trip in Costa Rica. This place did not disappoint, comfortable loungers for reading by the pool and comfortable home to sneak off for a nap. Jaco close by for those wanting all the tourist activities. For us just having a peaceful comfortable home to rest and get a sense of what it would be like to live in Costa Rica this is the place. Steep drive so if you have nervous travelers this road may challenge them. For myself once I drove it a piece a cake afterwards. Would have liked to see how they managed this drive during construction must have been a challenge to build in such steep terrain. Beautiful house Chris thankyou for letting our group experience. BEAUTIFUL!! Pura Vida 🇨?🇦? ❤️,s 🇨?🇷?

Simply amazing

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this house justice! It is so amazing and there is no better view in all of Costa Rica. Take Chris's advice and have someone pick you up at the airport and take you to the casa. We would of never found it! :) Or our way back! Maria and her family are amazing and Chris really goes over the top to make sure your trip is perfect! By far the best place we have ever stayed!

Amazing vacation property and destination!

  • 5 of 5

Hello Chris, We all had an amazing time in Costa Rica , and really appreciated the use of your "other home". You were right, no matter what beautiful pictures we took of the house and the view, none of the pictures do them justice (although we were lucky enough to get some amazing sunsets that were identical to the picture you have posted). Everyone there was very helpful and accommodating, you have made yourself some amazing friends there. Pedro was very friendly and helpful (guiding us to and from San Jose) and Maria the same. If you could thank them again when you see them, from us, it would be appreciated. Edguardo was exceptionally helpful and went out of his way to make our trip the best we’ve ever been on. He helped us go on all the excursions we wanted and hooked us up with some amazing people. We had Valentines dinner at Lanterna and requested him as our waiter. The food was excellent and the extra attention was very much appreciated. We spent the last full day with him and his son at Tortuga Island and had a great time! So again, if you could pass along the many thanks to him also for helping make our vacation a wonderful success.

Thanks Again!

Yours Truly, Curt, Kim, Joe, Gwen Tony and Julie

Great place to relax and watch a beautiful sunset.

  • 5 of 5

What a great stay. Maria and her family was the best. House is beautiful and so prefectures situated in the mountains overlooking the pacific.

The driveway is a bit scary at night but who doesn’t love a little adventure. It’s just a hop skip and a jump from fresh fruit markets to the north and Jaco to the south.

If you can’t enjoy yourself here there’s something wrong with you. Chris and his staff are top notch.
