About the Owner
Guestbook comments from the manager
We stayed at Casa Bambu for 2 weeks in April 2014.
The property was clean, modern and well equipped.
We swam in the pool daily, extremely hard to resist. The outdoor kitchen and stainless steel BBQ allowed us to really enjoy the pool area.
View, nothing short of spectacular.
We had a daily dose of wildlife as free entertainment. Toucans, Iguanas, Tree Frogs, Tapirs (or some kind of wild pig, not sure what it was), Preying mantis, Butterflies, Amevias, Geckos & monkeys off in the distance.
Would we recommend Casa Bambu to others? Without doubt!
Would we recommend the Dominical area to others? Without hesitation!
In fact, we fell in love with the area. We have already acquired property nearby and plan to build ourselves a home soon.

We had a group of five friends staying at Casa Bambu in June 2016 and had a spectacular time! The house is as beautiful as the photos and everything was exactly as described. There was more than enough room for the five of us, and the outdoor kitchen/pool/patio area was so great we hardly wanted to leave the house. Neil, Stephen & crew were very helpful, communicative, and friendly leading up to the trip and throughout. We had absolutely no complaints and would definitely rent here again!
Casa Bambu, Escalares, Costa Rica
My wife & I have been renting villas from this manager for some time and have always found them to be accessible, reasonable, knowledgeable and very proactive in making sure to address any issues or concerns that one might have. Such was again the case when we stayed in Casa Bambu, a beautiful modern designed villa up above the beaches in Escalares (halfway between Dominical & Uvita). The house was in immaculate condition. It is quite spacious and would easily and comfortably accommodate all of the people it says it advertises that it can sleep. The view is wonderful and the pool/outdoor kitchen area make this the place to be. Beds were all comfortable, clean and well maintained. It is well outfitted for cooking and has an excellent BBQ. It also has gas ranges, something great to have but unusual in Costa Rican rentals IMO. All management employees were friendly, good at their jobs and quick to respond if needed. This is a special place and you're treated as special by this manager and the comforts of this house. I would recommend it without hesitation, as I would recommend the management firm handling the property.
My family and I recently took a trip to Costa Rica and spent a week at Casa Bambu (March 15-23 2016). Wow! This house is exactly how it is described, and shown, on the internet. It is absolutely beautiful, peaceful, serene, tropical, and simply gorgeous. The house is well equipped and Neil the property manager and his staff were incredibly helpful. We were provided with full instructions -from renting a 4x4, arrival times, location and specific directions. We arranged a Chef (Stuart and Ross) for a night and they were spectacular! We also arranged surfing lessons and an ATV mountain tour through Stephen and this was well worth it. We were met by Stephen in Dominical and he led us to the house and went over every detail. The staff was always accessible to us whenever we needed anything. I would highly recommend a trip to Costa Rica and a stay at Casa Bambu. This is our second time renting a house in Costa Rica and we would highly recommend it! We will be back again to rent another spectacular property from Homeaway. Thanks again Neil, Steve, Stuart and Ross for making our stay a very memorable one. Mucho gusto!
Experience of a lifetime
We stayed at cash Bambu from Oct 11-Oct 18 during Costa Rica's supposed rainy season. We expected tons of rain but we were blessed with sunny Bright days for MOSt of our trip. You must rent a 4x4 to navigate the short 10 minute drive up a bumpy road up to this hillside home. Please take it slow because it took us a couple to days to get used to it because it's rather intimidating if you're not used to driving up or down mountains. Once we reached the house, WOW! The pics really don't do the house justice. Well equipped, well appointed, the views cannot be explained. We had all appliances needed. The beds are super comfy. Close to a bank, grocery stores, restaurants, and beaches.. The wildlife is awesome to see. Steve and Neil were only a phone call away. Zip lining and horseback riding were a must do!! We are coming back to Costa Rica with our whole family this time ( we only took two of our sons this time). This house can easily sleep 6 people. Pure Vida!
We stayed at Casa Bambu 24-29 of July 2015 and had a wonderful time! This property is breathtaking from the beautiful greenery to the spotless pool and house-looks EXACTLY as the pictures! The house was fully furnished with nothing overlooked-all the utensils and cooking wear to dishes to the most comfortable beds! Neil, the property manager, met us en route and answered all our questions and made us feel totally at home! The property was close to all our excursions from Horseback, to white water rafting to Dominical and Uvita towns....waking up to the tropical birds and monkeys was a dream! we highly recommend Stewart too! Just ask Neil to set you up! Thanks for at the wonderful memories in beautiful Cost Rica Purda Vida!! (P.S. definitely need 4X4 vehicle to access this property)
Sounds of the jungle
Once you have made it up the steep rocky road, you have arrived in paradise. We arrived to the sounds of howler monkeys and busy insects at sunset. Looking out at the view you didn't know where the ocean stopped and the sky began. Casa Bambu is a private oasis of luxury, from the house to the pool to the view and sounds. My parents stayed upstairs while my husband and I and our 2 girls stayed downstairs near the pool. Outdoor kitchen with barbeque made for lovely evening meals while the plethora of wildlife surrounding us added so much to our stay. This is Costa Rica at its best.
