Elite Destination Homes purchased this villa in 2010

I don’t think life could have been more perfect during our stay in Costa Rica. Casa La Big Sur is just so private and secluded. It’s easy to get lost in the beauty around you. Everyday I walked out from the living room onto the patio to see literally miles of mesmerizing coastline views. I even enjoyed my morning workout as the fitness area is located outside on the upper terrace.

* Extraordinary indoor/outdoor living experience

* Views of 60 miles of coastline

* Lofty spaciousness of 30' ceilings in central great room

* Total privacy and security in a privileged enclave

The ultimate in Luxury!

This place has it all. Beautiful surroundings, impeccable decor, panoramic views. Didier and Carolina are wonderful and their help in keeping the grounds spic and span is appreciated. The doors are all hardwood, so even if you are staying with other families it is quiet and private. The road up there is steep but well-maintained. There is a great bar/restaurant a short walk away with great burgers, wings, and drinks. Only 45 minutes to Manuel Antonio. Wildlife in the trees. We loved it! Great for kids!

Paradise in the Sky!!

  • Submitted: Mar 19, 2013
  • Stayed: Feb 2013
What can I really say!! The pictures are amazing but they don't even begin to give you the real sense of what this place is all about. Casa Big Sur sits on the side of rolling hills and overlooks one of the best ocean views I have ever seen. If you like laid back and peaceful or if you are looking for adventure Casa Big Sur and Dominical offer more than enough to satisfy. The house is better than any 5-satr accommodation a hotel could offer. Casa Big Sur, the staff, and Ben Morris see to it that every detail is covered and if you need something they will get it for you. We spent 8 days in CR and it went by way too fast. I can't wait to make my way back to Casa Big Sur and Dominical again real soon!! James - Cleveland, oh

This is house is better than the pictures. The wildlife that seems to live on the property make you feel as if your all alone in nature. As far as the house is concerned it exceeded all the expectations. The master suites are humungous with huge showers and a jacuzzi tub with a view that was still private. The pool is incredible, Im not a big swimmwer but I found myself floating on the provided pool rafts every afternoon while watching the toucans and macaws flying over head. The only negative thing about house is that the two downstairs rooms as well as the bathroom are only accessible by going outside. This wouldnt be a problem except there are some pretty Ginormous bugs in CR, so if you have someone afraid of bugs put them upstairs. As far as getting to the house, they are not kidding about having four wheel drive. Its was pretty unbelievable the first time up but after that It was actually pretty fun. The service was great and I would definitely go back
Owner's Response: Thank you for your wonderful feedback! We are delighted that you enjoyed the pool and the toucans!

Our Trip to Paradise

  • Submitted: Dec 1, 2011
  • Stayed: Mar 2011
“Life doesn’t get any better than this”, we thought to ourselves as a toucan flew overhead and shrieks of excitement could be heard as a double rainbow formed in front of the kids. Costa Rica is full of incredible sights and sounds and hands down, was the best destination we could have chosen for our family vacation. Not only was it a haven to escape the rush of daily life, but it was an adventure that our children will never forget. Days could be filled with lounging lazily by the pool or being pampered with a massage to hiking through the rainforest or surfing at one of the local beaches. Our options and activities were endless, and we didn’t let the fact that we were traveling with 4 children (including a toddler and an infant) stop us! In fact, it made for a great fieldtrip for the older kids who learned all about the characteristics and animals of the rainforest.

Our accommodations were Grade A. Casa Big Sur proved to be everything and more than we anticipated. Nestled atop the rainforest, the sunrise vistas were breathtaking and having a howler monkey as our wakeup call was a pretty cool experience. Upon our arrival, the house was open and inviting, the kitchen already stocked with food, the pool ready to be jumped in, and a beautiful mahogany crib was awaiting our littlest weary traveler. The house staff was incredibly friendly and attentive to our every need. Our hosts Ben and Sidia, made us feel right at home in addition to making us feel like family. Our time in Costa Rica and especially at Casa Big Sur is something we’ll never forget. We intend to be back soon, ready for another adventure and ready to settle into Pura Vida!

Don't Hesitate- Rent it! - TripAdvisor Review
  • Submitted: Dec 1, 2011

My extended family/ friends (10 of us)rented Casa Big Sur the first week of November. We have occupied a number of properties on the pacific coast of Costa Rica over the past two years and Casa Big Sur is at the very top. The house is gorgeous, with privacy and breathtaking views. The drive up can seem daunting at first, but becomes routine by weeks end. The towns of Uvita and Dominical are wonderful places to explore, small and friendly. The house staff was excellent, and communicating with the owner was always a pleasure. He was always available and ready to aid us or answer questions. We did utilize a chef, and I will review that separately. I would recommend a 4x4, and don't miss whitewater rafting, canyoning , and beer/wings at the Jolly Roger (walking distance)while in the area. Finally, we saw more wildlife at other sites, but if you are going primarily for wildlife hit the Osa! This is a very beautiful home, in a lovely and tranquil setting. Go!
