SUN LOVERS DESTINATION | YEAR ROUND SUNSETS | INFINITY EDGE POOL

Overview

Property Details

Updated: May 18, 2015
Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

CASA ANTIGUA is a 3000 square foot fully air-conditioned, luxury villa with two master suites and 2.5 bathrooms.

Rustic, wooden, double doors open to a domed ceiling foyer, which is finished with antique brick. From the foyer, the first glimpse of the ocean is seen, along with panoramic views through the living area, kitchen, and covered terraces. The water of the infinity-style pool appears to spill into the ocean in the distance.

High ceilings and open spaces bring the outside in and take the inside out throughout the living areas and both master suites. Doors, windows, and cabinets hand-crafted from native woods add richness to the vibrant color scheme.

The living area has a bar and built in entertainment center with flat screen television, stereo sound, and DVD player. A U-shaped, gourmet kitchen features an island, breakfast bar, and pass-through window to the patio bar.

The two master bedroom suites include private water closets, double vanities, over sized tiled showers, built-in armoires, and walk-in closets.

From the terraces the infinity pool seemingly appears to spill into the ocean. From here views prominently feature Punta Dominical, which is distinguished by a small island approximately 300 meters from the shore. To the north are views of whitewater beaches and Manuel Antonio National Park. The sounds of waves from Dominicalitio Beach, birds, and monkeys also fill the terrace as you sit and relax in the harmony that is Dominical.

10 minutes from Casa Antigua is the Hacienda Baru Biological Reserve where you can Canopy Tour by zip line. 15 minutes from the house is Don Lulo's horseback water fall tour. The great surf break of Dominical Beach is a short 5 minutes drive from Casa Antigua.

A 4 wheel drive vehicle is a must for the Dominical area.

About the Owner

I have been working and living in Costa Rica for more than eight years. This is home. Dominical is by far the 'Real Costa Rica'! Come and experience it for yourself.

Paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5
Everything all of the other reviews say, is absolutely accurate.

We traveled to CR to celebrate our 35th Wedding Anniversary. Clinton arranged for a driver to greet us at the Airport and drive us to his home. We also used this service on the way back. It was so nice to just sit back and enjoy the beautiful views. The drivers provided us some history of the area as well as taking time to show us a few special things about the area.

When we arrived at Casa Antigua there were fresh flowers from the gardens on Clinton's property in the bathrooms and main living area. It is the little touches like this that make Casa Antigua so special. Clinton has thought of EVERYTHING you could possibly need for your stay. We love to cook and the kitchen was great!! You certainly cannot beat the views if you want to make some meals!! Clinton arranged for a cook, Yeda, to prepare a true Costa Rican meal and Civeche on the evening we arrived. It was so nice to be able to stay there once we arrived after a very long day of travel. The cost was very appropriate and we were able to get about 4 meals out it!! We recommend this service.

Our favorite things about this property were the amazing views of the ocean, gardens, birds, and the seclusion you feel. We also loved the music selections that were available for our listening pleasure in and out of doors.
Clinton's personal attention to detail in his home and in setting up excursions was awesome. Staying at Casa Antigua was like staying in a 5 star hotel, without anyone else being around!! The location of Casa Antigua is perfect. In the mountain, but close enough for quick trips to Dominical, Uvita, the smoothie shop, and Ceviche stands!! It was also very comforting to have a gated community with 24/7 guard on duty.

We could not have picked a better place to make memories of our special anniversary vacation. The home, Clinton, and Costa Rica far exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend Casa Antigua!
Thank you Clinton for everything. We will be back!!

An incredible place to vacation

  • 5 of 5
Best trip of a lifetime! Your house could not have been more perfect. What a great way to wake up to that beautiful sunrise from your house. You are a great host and you thought of everything to make our stay perfect. Zip lining was fun and the horseback ride to the waterfalls was great. The restaurant that you recommended was wonderful, although we got groceries and really enjoyed just lounging at the pool and relaxing in your beautiful house. Your pool was perfect. I would recommend your house to anyone and I have been using Home Away for 10 years. Great vacation home and also a wonderful place to retire. We loved it! Great home, great host!

Best. Week. Ever.

  • 5 of 5
We just got home this morning at 3 am from our trip and it is with pleasure that I heartily recommend this villa, Casa Antigua, in Dominical, Costa Rica. The owner, Clinton, is a class act kind of guy, no drama, just a nice guy with good taste who designed and built this beautiful villa. We are a family of three, and my thirteen year old daughter basically spent the week getting in and out of the spectacular infinity pool. (We live in Portland, Maine, and it snowed here again three days ago. So.) The hubs and I have self catered all over the world and this villa we have ranked among the best after 25 years. Last year we rented a different villa in CR, it was okay, but not up this standard. Here's why: Clinton has taken the time to focus on not just the incredible landscaping, the location of the lot and the view, but the little things as well. The kitchen has virtually everything you can hope for. Heck, his blender puts mine to shame. Made a smoothie for the kid and it pulverized in an instant. The knives were sharp! Yay! We cook a lot and these things we notice. We bought HUGE prawns from the fish man just down the hill grilled them with pineapple on the Weber grill. And there was charcoal! ("Carbon", i learned in Spanish) There is literally everything you need. Clinton is right, just bring food and yourselves. All of the linens and towels were of very high quality. The house is decorated beautifully and we loved the high ceilings and fans, (but there is central air, as well) and filled with cds, dvds, various books, and my favorite, some excellent reference books on CR. Very nice perk having a dedicated garage so you don't have to get into your car after its been sitting in the sun. And a celestial telescope! We were able to see the meteor showers perfectly! Do I gush? Yes, I do. Perfect location, perfect house, perfect host. Clinton was available for any question I may have had, no matter how silly. The villa is in a very small area with a gated entry and 24 hour guard. Although we saw some other villas, this villa is extremely private and very quiet. On Thursday we were just sitting on the patio enjoying the view and reading, and a toucan parked himself 50 feet away and began to preen himself. The morning we left a pair of scarlett macaws flew right over our heads. Love it! If you are considering Casa Antigua, consider your considering done. GO!

Perfection in Dominical

  • 5 of 5
My family and I literally just returned from Casa Antigua, and believe me, here in Maine it is 46 F; we already miss Clinton's gorgeous home. But not just because of the weather. Clinton is great, but I suspect he has very little control over that. I found Casa Antigua on this site, just as I've found homes for rent in Italy, Scotland, Ireland, Antigua, st. Kitts, st. Lucia, Jamaica, and here where we live now, maine. We rented last year in CR, but Casa Antigua so far surpassed that rental that we found ourselves comparing the two on a daily basis.

If you've read all the other glowing reviews, then you probably know the basics: the incredible view. The spectacular location for doing anything you may want to do in the south western coast of Costa Rica, including, but not limited to, animal sanctuaries, horseback Riding on the beach, zip line tours, hanging out in the funky town of dominical (del mar taco shop all the way, man!) buying fresh fish and fruit from the stands along the roads, grilling those items on the great weber grill on the patio (hint: get that chimney hot, baby for those giant prawns you'll want to smother in fresh lime butter) and simply just sitting on the patio at the fabulous infinity pool. Wg did a lot of that, myself especially because I burnt myself wicked first day, think I'd learn by now. But there is plenty of shade and great places to hang out at Casa Antigua; on Thursday we were just sitting and reading by the pool and I looked up to see a beautiful toucan had landed in a tree and was preening. We watched him for 20 minutes! Then on Saturday am, we were treated to a fly by of a pair of scarlet macaws. Now, that's nothing if you've been to cr before, maybe you've seen that wildlife. But at Casa Antigua you have the treat of all the other bird life and the incredible landscaping.

I have got to wrap this up or I'll be typing all night. If you love to self cater like we have over the last twenty years, I'll simply tell you what we specifically thought stood out in this rental: the towels were nice. Not crappy, thin, towels. And there were a lot of them. The knives were SHARP! YAY! As I mentioned, we love to cook local where we go, and that kitchen was kitted out perfect. We had our privacy because of the great way the house is laid out, and it was QUIET. Great satellite tv, nice selections of DVDs (waking Ned Devine! One of our all time favorites we were able to introduce to our dau

Suggestivo

  • 5 of 5
Abbiamo avuto il piacere di soggiornare a Villa Antigua per una settimana con una coppia di amici. La casa è splendida situata in posizione panoramica con vista sull'oceano spettacolare e con tramonti da cartolina. Casa super accessoriata, non manca nulla. Piscina a sfioro da set cinematografico. Giardino incantevole. La consigliamo a tutti per una vacanza superlativa. Un ringraziamento a Clinton per il caffè che ci ha fatto trovare.

Simply the best vacation EVER!!!

  • 5 of 5
Clinton, you are the best host ever also. We loved every minute in your home & didn't really even need to go anywhere to have the best vacation. It was ALL right there at our fingertips! The coffee you so generously provided was amazing as well. When we did venture out we began to fall in live with ALL of Costa Rica but were always so excited to come back to Casa Antigua. Anyone looking for the most incredible place to stay should look no further than this house. This was a girlfriend trip & we try to go somewhere new every year, but Costa Rica & Casa Antigua is a pace we will come back to within 2 years...no doubt. Thanks again Clinton for all the extras you did to make this the perfect trip. Trish & Deb

Location

From the Owner

I chose Dominical because of its upside. The area is up and coming and the new infrastructure leading to it is getting better and better. This house is unlike any of the other 2 bedroom options in the area. The pool is bigger, the rooms and common areas are more spacious and the house is more private than other options you might consider. Furthermore, I live in Costa Rica and I am very involved with the community so I am able to better tend to your vacation needs.
