FABULOUS STAY!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from an amazing 6 night stay at Casa Serendipia & wished we had another week! The only difficulty we had was deciding which of the 3 great bedrooms to stay in! All had amazing views and perfect baths (only one has a king though).The kitchen has been completely redone and was beautiful - photos below are outdated. The living area was very comfortable and we watched movies on the big screen TV. They have a great DVD collection there.

We had a problem with an A/C leak and both Howard (long distance) and our house concierge, Alex, responded immediately and fixed the problem.

Prior to arrival, Alex planned wonderful activities for us. My husband and I took our 18 & 19 year old boys to Dominical for an adventure & we had one every day! Surfing and class 4 rafting on the Cotobrus River with Dominical Surf Adventures, ATV with Karl @ Diamante and horse back riding to the Nauyaca waterfalls.

Loved coming back everyday to the villa to sit by the infinity pool and watch the brilliant sunsets. The property is beautifully landscaped - filled with butterflies and birds!

Ten amazing days at Casa Serendipia

  • 5 of 5
The last part of drive from San Jose as you reach the Dominical area is simply the most beautiful region we have visited. Getting to the house was no problem and meeting their concierge upon our arrival was a nice way to get settled in and introduce us to the many activities in the area that Alex can help arrange.
The house is absolutely gorgeous as is the view of the beach from the pool deck. What we really liked about the house is that each of the three master suites was large and had separate bath and walk-in closets. We have stayed at other houses that had undersized rooms but this was not the case here. Each bedroom also had an outstanding view of the beach/ocean. No “garden view” rooms here. Only postcard pretty views every morning that you wake up.
The view from the kitchen was the same outstanding postcard. The appliances were all newer and met all our needs. They have an outdoor gas grill that we used to make shish kabobs one evening (kabob sticks were in the kitchen drawer). We picked up steaks from the Uvita store and vegetables from the market. There is something very special about enjoying an amazing meal while sitting on your own private pool deck watching a Pacific sunset.
We spent a lot of time by the pool enjoying the view and a few rum drinks. The house had a nice i-pod dock for use by the pool and the wireless was fast and reliable. When we didn’t play our own playlist we streamed music from the internet.
The house is only a few minutes from the beach whether you walk or go by car. We walked early and late but took the car during the mid-day heat. The community is gated and has a guard on duty at all times. Although we have never heard of any problems when we have been in this part of Costa Rica it is still nice knowing there is a guard at the gate to assure your safety and privacy.
We have been in the area before but took advantage of Alex to help arrange some of our activities. We drove to Serpia and took a boat to tour the Osa from the Sirena Biological Station. Saw all four types of monkeys, tons of birds, a tapir, as well as many other land animals. We also did the horseback ride to the beautiful Nauyaca Waterfalls and took some great pictures of the kids jumping off the falls. The kids did the kayak trip to Ventanas Beach where we drove to meet them during their stop at that beach and explored the caves at low tide.
We highly recommend staying in Casa Serendipity. 2 adults + 2 kids in 20's.
