Casa Big Sur

Property Description

5 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Casa Big Sur is your own private paradise located near Dominical in the Southern Zone of Costa Rica on the Pacific Ocean. This 9,000 square foot home (including covered patios and decks) is a one-of-a-kind tropical masterpiece, designed so every room enjoys the impressive ocean and rainforest views, including over 60 miles of coastline, the Cano and Three Sister Islands, the Whale’s Tail National Marine Park, and winding rivers with whitewater and undulating mountains that stretch as far as the eye can see. All of this without another home or structure in sight.

Designed and built with native hardwoods, exposed beams, natural stone, and local tile work, this stunning home offers an extraordinary indoor/outdoor living experience with a central great room that boasts 30-foot ceilings, spacious balcony to enjoy with family and friends, fully equipped gourmet kitchen, and outdoor living room with wet bar that extends to the pool deck. Relax in the large infinity pool or oversized hot tub to enjoy the magnificent views while watching nature move all around you!

The home resides on 9 acres in a gated, private enclave providing total privacy and security. Well-structured walking trails give you access to the estate, including a seasonal river, and will enable you and your guests to enjoy this vibrant nature corridor which includes several kinds of monkeys, sloths, toucans, a broad range of birds, along with primary trees hundreds of years old, tropical plants and fruit trees only found in Costa Rica. It’s only a short walk to a local restaurant featuring delicious burgers and the best wings in the area.

Within 10 minutes you will find world class beaches and ample amenities, including grocery stores, restaurants, shops and bank. The advantage of staying in the Southern Zone, beyond its natural beauty, is the broad spectrum of activities it affords. Whether its diving into a waterfall, horseback riding, ATV riding, rappelling, hiking, canoeing, fishing, or zip-lining, there are no doubt more things to do than you will have days. This is the ideal home base for nature lovers and adrenaline seekers alike.

Casa La Big Sur is nestled in a gated enclave containing just three homes, ensuring your privacy and security. This land of “pura vida,” or the pure life, is near a multitude of incredible beaches. Various restaurants, shopping destinations, golf and a spa are a short drive away, too.

Whether you’re in the mood to get in touch with nature or lose touch, if only for a while, with your hectic everyday life, you’ll feel at home here.

My friends and I had a wonderful time staying at this villa! It was so beautiful and it looked even better in person! The staff was wonderful and the chef, Roger, was AMAZING! The only issue that we had was with the power. Upon arrival, the power was out and that caused the water to be out as well. After a long trip, that was kind of annoying to not have lights or water. Luxury Retreats was there every step to make sure we felt better about not having lights and water. Overall we had a blast and the home was beautiful!!!! We would recommend this home to anyone that wants to visit Dominical!

Very nice villa. Was completely as advertised.

My wife and I had an amazing time with our 3 daughters (7, 7 & 9). The location felt very remote but in actuality it was close to all tours we were interested in and everything else we needed. The house staff and chef services were excellent. My wife and I have been to Costa Rica several times before but this was our first time with the kids. As we sit on the flight getting ready to fly back to Florida, we have all agreed…. best family vacation ever!!
