  • Paradise As Promised!

    "This house truly was Paradise As Promised! It was everything and more that you see in the photos and read about in the rave reviews. We were an extended family of 5 vacationing in Claire's home away from home, which became our home away from home. Beautiful indoor and outdoor space - comfortable - very nicely furnished with all the amenities you need (small stuff like: plenty of beach towels, dishwashing soap, laundry soap, hand soap, shampoo, etc... items that we have had to purchase in the past at other VRBO properties.). The house was so clean and neat upon arrival that we felt compelled to leave it just as nice the morning we left. Having 2 master bedrooms and the 2 additional bedrooms and bathrooms was very nice for a larger group. Pool and gardens were lovely. Fun to sit on deck and watch the monkeys and toucans in the trees! Heard the Howler Monkeys in the mornings but never got a look. The view is spectacular - over the rainforest tree tops to the ocean. If you are into fitness, a morning walk up the driveway and on the road will really get your heart going! And yes, the road up and the driveway do require a steady driver and a 4 wheel drive - no drinking and driving up this road at night! We would venture out for daytime activities, return home and then out to dinner at night - many great restaurants within 10 - 15 minutes after you got to the main road (driveway averaged about 15 minutes). Having access to Claire's beach club came in handy a couple times - Uvita Beach was close and very nice. Didn't use the beach club facilities though as they seemed to cater to a local, regular clientele. In conclusion, we recommend this property and the owner - Claire was wonderful to work with and gave great directions and instructions for our arrival. Hint: We used a local tour company for some great day trips to the best nature sites: Bahia Adventuras - we highly recommend them - great tours and the best guides! Thanks Claire for letting us enjoy your home and enjoy Pura Vida!"

  • Awesome Location!

    "This was our first time staying at Casa Antigua and we are hoping to be back. We have experience staying in VRBO's all around the world and we can truly say this was one of the best ever. If you are staying in the Dominical area then Clinton's house is perfect, because it's just a short drive up from the coastal highway and you are in paradise. The 24/7 security guard lets you into the gated community with a warm and welcoming smile. The house has everything you could ever need and truly felt like a home for the duration of our stay. Some of our favourite activities included surfing with Sunset Surf Company and SUP through the mangroves with Pineapple Tours. The spectacular, panoramic sunsets took our breath away night after night. After the sun went down, the sound system was the perfect way to enjoy your music while cooking dinner on the charcoal barbecue with the family. The hardest part of the stay had to be saying goodbye :( Thank you Clinton for sharing your paradise with us. Pura Vida"

  • Caught a TON of Sailfish with Diablo Sportfishing while Staying at Jungle Mountain Bungalow

    "My 6 day visit (2/18 - 2/23) was set up to assess Costa Rica as a final destination for this retired marine biologist and especially its offshore big game fishing situation. As someone who has fished all over the world (see www.BigMarineFish.com), I had selected CR as the best potential spot for my retirement and I was not disappointed! I also chose to stay at the Jungle Mountain Bungalows, owned by Capt. Kevin Malone and his wonderful wife, Alyson, to see what living up high in that less developed part of CR might be like. You can see from their website’s photos that the bungalows are really nice, stocked with everything you might need, bathed by cool breezes each evening (no AC needed up there on the mountain), surrounded by virtually pristine tropical rainforest (CR has the greatest biodiversity of any place in the world), unspoiled yet largely un-populated beaches along the beautiful coast, with dramatic sunset views of the Pacific from the bungalows’ porches. Idyllic. Driving up and down the mountain (4x4 required) was an adventure in itself. Kevin Malone is a top notch charter captain, extremely skilled in all the little details of big game fishing (such as rigging ballyhoo baits to look to a sailfish as if it were a real swimming baitfish) that make all the difference between just a nice boat ride vs. a day filled with the best fishing one could possibly enjoy (as I experienced with him, twice). The night before, we had decided to target sailfish offshore on my two days, so we got up early and Kevin drove his center console about 25 miles across a choppy Pacific to an underwater mountain known as the Furuno Bank where we fished both days. On day 1 we raised 9 sailfish and brought 7 to the boat to be fully revived prior to their release – which I viewed as an extremely good day’s outing. But he topped that performance the following day, going 9 for 11. These sailfish are big, 7 to 8 feet long and ours were about 90 to 125 lbs – more than twice as large as those I’ve caught in the Florida Keys – and since they spend a lot of energy jumping, sailfish are spectacular to fight. Ours usually took about 20-25 minutes to finally bring close enough for Kevin to grab their bill and remove the circle hook before release. On day 2, I had 30 minutes left on my charter “clock” but told Kevin to just “head for the barn” as I was exhausted and had had enough. All told, our sailfish would have added up to about 2,000 lbs! Can’t imagine better fishing."
