OCEAN VIEW, JUNGLE RIDGE IN HIDDEN VALLEY, INFINITY POOL, NEAR BEACH

Jaco House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 9)

Perched high on a ridge overlooking Hermosa Beach Jaco, nestled within a private hidden valley and natural wildlife corridor, “Casa Infinito” is the perfect luxury getaway for several couples, families, or for group retreats and receptions.

Absorb the panoramic ocean and mountain vistas, the lulling sound of the pacific surf and intimate jungle views from the many decks, or right from your bedroom each morning. In the evening, enjoy the constant cooling mountain breezes as they keep you comfortable and free of the night bugs from the beach.

At the same time, it is only 4 minutes drive from the world class surfing beach of Hermosa (that is often as quiet as a private beach) and another 5 minutes to the attractive beach town of Jacó offering all the North American style amenities you could want - “Casa Infinito” has it all.

CASA INFINITO : Award-winning architect designed, 4,500 sq. ft, 3-level, ultimate modern luxury villa with 5 bedrooms / 3 full baths (2 with double sinks) and the expansive “Infinity Pool” from which the property takes its name. This 5 year old, immaculately maintained, property is now available.

Duncan and Sheryl Stewart welcome you to 'Casa Infinito' and will do everything possible to make your stay trouble-free and highly enjoyable. We are both busy health professionals located in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Although our home area is also very beautiful, like many Canadians we fell in love with the special feel of Costa Rica and hope to make it our retirement home in coming years as well as a fabulous holiday destination for our two sons. We purchased the house in fall 2009 and have dedicated much effort to make it one of the most beautiful, unique and best equipped properties available in Costa Rica (just check out our all 5 star reviews and you will see that our guests agree). Special care has gone into finding the right partnerships with our local property representatives (who will greet you, take you to the house and ensure that all your needs are met during your stay). In particular, we hope you will have our professional driver and special friend, Abner Arias, meet you at the Airport and also take you on fabulous custom tours throughout your stay. We are confident you will agree that all our support staff are wonderful people who will make your stay very special.

Have a Great Stay at Casa Infinito

Duncan & Sheryl

Sheryl & Duncan purchased this house in 2009

This location represents probably the best combination of amenities in Costa Rica. It is very private with fabulous ocean and jungle views, yet only 4 minutes drive to the beach. It has cooling breezes all the time (which is also great for keeping bugs away). It is not dried out and intensely hot like Guanacaste. It is the closest coastal location from the Airport, only about an hour away on the brand new very scenic highway The house is extremely spacious and private unlike most properties in places like Manuel Antonio (under an hour away) which have very little land space and are highly over-developed. Jaco is also a much prettier beach town with much better services.

Oh -and did we mention the gorgeous 40ft Infinity Pool and the white-faced monkeys tapping on your bedroom window in the morning.

At the end of a beautiful tropical day, we love nothing more than to just marvel at yet another spectacular sunset, surrounded by all the live sounds of the rainforest and the lulling background ocean surf. Nothing beats that moment of complete relaxation floating in our private Infinity pool, cool drink in hand, gazing out over the expanse of jungle and onwards to the blue blue ocean filling the whole skyline... ahhhhh. Sound like you could use some of this too?

This property is everything it claims to be and more. We had a fabulous 10 day stay over Christmas and New Year, and miss Costa Rica and beautiful Casa Infinito a lot! Right from the start Sheryl and Duncan were helpful and easy to deal with. We arranged for Abner to do our transfers to and from SJO and he was also a huge asset during our stay. He is very knowledgeable and helpful with arranging things and just being at the end of the phone if we had a question.
The house itself was perfection - spotless, stunningly well-equipped (and I do vacation rentals quite a bit) very comfortable and the pool/grounds were beautiful. I really can't say enough good things about the house and the property. There were 8 adults in our party, but we had lots of space and privacy if we wanted it. Playa Hermosa is great for swimming and has plenty of little restaurants and shops. Jaco is a mere 15 minutes away and also has everything you need. The young members of the group did surf lessons there, and also went zip lining. Thanks to Abner's contacts they were whisked safely to and from Jaco for New Years Eve which was a great relief for us, and fun for them. We ate at Wishbone and Lemon Zest in Jaco and at the Backyard Bar in PH. Also Pizza delivery from Pizza Pata (?) was fast and good.
We did rent a car while we there and it is good to have just for short trips and excursions. The road up to the Casa is steep and a bit of a challenge but our little Toyota managed it admirably. We saw monkeys, iguanas, parrots and the resident frogs, and loved the scenery and beautiful weather. Our day trip to Parc Manuel Antonio with Abner was also an experience.
I wholeheartedly recommend this property, Sheryl and Duncan, Abner, Elena, the friendly guards at the gate and all of Costa Rica. We had an absolutely perfect stay and hope to return when we can.

It is hard to write a review on perfection. Everything indicating on the listing was provided and more. Customer service was excellent. Upon arrival in San Jose Abner, I recommend he be asked to provide assistance, was at the airport to meet us and transport us to Casa Infinito. Our two week vacation was scheduled during the raining season however our night arrival turned out to be the only stormy day. After that day any inclement weather that occurred during our stay was when we were already in bed, or in route to many of the diverse parks/sites Costa Rica has to offer. If I did not know better I would say that the owners, Sheryl and Duncan, made special arrangements for us to have perfect weather. As for the view from the house we could not have asked for anything better. Again Sheryl and Duncan must have made special arrangements for monos (monkies) to make their presences during our stay at the house as well as the daily Tucan visits out the back porch, and the fly bys by other exotic birds. The property was impeccable and fit all our special needs our family required. I would highly recommend this property to anyone. Thank you Sheryl, Duncan, Abner and Elena the property manager for all the help and in making our stay in Casa Infinito such a memorable one. like I initially said perfect

Perfect

The accommodations were beyond our expectations, which helped make for a relaxing and eventful trip. Be it days beside the pool, delicious meals inside, or visiting with the wildlife that would stop by, we now have memories that we will brag about for years.

I am also very grateful for the time the owners took to answer my questions, and for their suggestions; we used pretty much every recommendation they had.

• Elena was extremely helpful in having the house stocked with food for our arrival and in dealing with any issues that arose during our stay
• Tom and his family was extremely pleasant and prepared food to match. We would recommend their services to anyone staying, at least once (we regretted not calling him more than twice ?)
o Extra thanks to Justin, and Tortuga Surf. Great people and great recommendations all around.
• Abner was not just our driver and guide, but our friend while we were in Costa Rica. His services and charm helped make our vacation go from awesome, to perfect.

We tend to change up our vacation plans year to year, but our experience with everyone involved and our stay at Casa Infinito, has us talking about a return & repeat trip sometime in the future. I would most certainly point anyone looking to vacation in Costa Rica in this direction.

Casa Infinito is a fantastic rental The owners Sheryl and Duncan are immediately responsive to any questions and proved very helpful. The casa sits high on a ridge and we daily saw parrots, toucans and monkeys from the pool. There were 4 couples staying at the Casa and there was still plenty of room. The drive from the main road is harrowing the first time but became old hat by the 3rd or 4th trip. Several local restaurants are 5 minutes away. We also had a local restaurant cater for us twice and it was great. Pizza delivery is also available for late night snacks. The managers Elena and Christine were top notch and serious about providing the very best experience for us. We LOVED it! You don't need to look any further.

Amazing Experience

  • Stayed: Dec 2012
During my group (of 9)'s travel in Costa Rica, Casa Infinito was unquestionably the best experience we had. Would strongly recommend it for anyone planning a several day stay in the Jaco region.

Virtually everything about Casa Infinito is wonderful.Here is a short list of the 10 best features:

1. Beautiful infinity pool overlooking the forest
2. State of the art washing and drying machines, detergent included.
3. Grill + full set of grilling tools to make that mean delicious steak
4. Fast and reliable internet service
5. Luxurious rooms, each with their own name and specialized decor
6. Villa all by itself, perfect for playing music or partying late into the evening
7. 24 hour security and house alarm feature for added feeling of safety
8. A selection of umbrellas for rainy days
9. 3 binders of DVDs with an array of movies from romantic comedies to action to horror films.
10. 24 hour security and an alarm system for added safety.

There are a few minor inconveniences such as the necessity of having a rental car and it being a 15 minute drive from Casa Infinito to Jaco. But all things considered, we had an amazing time and would elect to return to Casa Infinito in a heart beat if we ever came back to the area.
