Be as active as you can imagine on a Costa Rica vacation, or relax thoroughly by the pool or ocean in a setting you'll never forget
Casa Antonelli is a fabulous vacation spot. The home is outstanding - beautiful decor, spacious interior, room for everyone (there were eight of us). Wonderful, well-appointed kitchen. The best part - you could be as active as you wanted (snorkeling, sailing, fishing, zip-lining) or just relax by the pool. The view is spectacular! Watching the sunset every night was very special. Terrific restaurants nearby. Great beaches. Convenient shopping. Definitely worth a return visit.
Playa Hermosa is fantastic and Casa antonelli was the icing on the cake. I was there with my son and some friends for a week. The house is elegant and beautifully appointed and magnificent. It is immaculately maintained. The breathtaking views and glorious sunsets, overlooking the infinity pool, were just priceless. I could not recommend a vacation property or a vacation that was as great as the time we had. It was the perfect place. Fishing, swimming, snorkeling, great (inexpensive to expensive) restaurants and friendly people. Birds, monkeys, side trip to Arenal -- the Costa Rica works! I felt like chucking everything and moving down there with my wife. The weather was perfect every moment of every day. Whoa!!!
I had a great experience at Casa Antonelli. The house was well-laid out, spacious, sunny, and with beautiful woodwork. The remote-controlled air conditioning in the bedrooms is an excellent touch. Built on a hill and facing west, the house offers a spectacular view of the ocean from a large patio and beautiful sunsets over an infinity pool. The gated community was safe as well. I highly recommend Casa Antonelli. I plan to return soon.
I recently stayed at Casa Antonelli with my family. The brochure comment
on this is home is understated. It is a truly gorgeous place,
magnificently situated and in a protected and safe community. It has
easy access to everything the beach has to offer, as well as restaurants
and other activities that make Costa Rica so special. Waking up to that
expansive view was memorable. The sunsets alone were worth the price of
admission. I have already reserved another week.
Holy Cow is all I can say. Casa Antonelli is truly stupendous. If not for the adventure activities nearby, and buying food, there's simply no reason to leave. I spent endless hours reading (and cocktailing) in the shade while my kids played in the pool, all the while over-looking a stunning view of tree tops and the Pacific. Sunsets were like nothing I've ever seen. We had fantastic family adventures zip-lining at Witch's Rock (30 minutes away) and boating in the largest estuary on the American West Coast (at Playa Grande), where we saw mangroves, baby crocodiles and monkeys. During many months, you can also see Leatherback Turtles hatching on the beach there. We also snorkeled and fished, and visited uninhabited coves. My small children were perfectly comfortable playing the mild and predictable waves at the closest, gorgeous beach (right down the hill)-- Playa Hermosa. The most incredible thing of all, though, was coming back to Casa Antonelli each afternoon and lounging in paradise. It was strikingly beautiful every time we returned, day after day. We grilled on the deck and ate outside with the frogs. THANK YOU for a truly exceptional, family-friendly, adventure AND leisure vacation. We will most definitely return.
