About The Owner

We appreciate natural beauty, privacy and modernity.

The Owner purchased this house in 2013

Why The Owner chose Puntarenas

We discovered Costa Rica's Southern Pacific coast years back and fell in love with the Country, the people, the food and especially their 'Pura Vida' approach to life. After searching for the perfect location and home we found Dominicalito and the Las Olas development.

What makes this house unique

Our views are spectacular, and the home 'Modern/Rustic'. We've central air (rarely found), 3 master bedroom suites 2 KING, 1 QUEEN, each with magnificent views, a gated and secure community, and we own sunsets you will never find anywhere else in the world.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

My 2 friends and I went on a girls vacation. This house was perfect, beautiful and the view just can't be any better! We spent time hiking, hanging out on the patio and in the pool marveling at the AMAZING view. The concierge, was very helpful and the owners were very speedy responding to emails. The house has DVD's and we also had relaxing evenings having "happy hour" and watching "chick flicks". We will definitely be back. Did I mention the amazing view?!

Great time at Casa Serendipia

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed by almost everything at Casa Serendipia. The house is very nice, as advertised. The bedrooms are all high quality and spacious, but the upstairs is the best. The views are great, and the living areas and kitchen are very nice. The infinity pool is a great place to relax and enjoy the sunset. Our concierge, Raul, did a great job arranging activities, at our request, including pre-purchasing some groceries. He also arranged flowers delivered to a restaurant for an anniversary dinner. Great service.

Here are some recommendations for future travelers: for groceries go to the BM store on the South side of Uvita, not the one a few blocks closer on the North side. Much bigger and better. For beaches, Ventanas and Uvita were our faves. I recommend hiring a boat to take you to Playa Arco for a totally private beach day. For restaurants, Exotica had excellent food and amazing service. Ask for off-the-menu wine selections. La Parcela and Azul (in the El Castillo hotel) have amazing views and good food. Citrus is a bit overrated. Jolly Roger is a fun, ultra-casual wing bar with nice views, close to the house. For excursions, Nauyaca Falls is amazingly beautiful and a great place to swim. Whitewater rafting was a blast and not dangerous. The ATV tour was very nice, but a bit hot and tiring. Don't snorkel or fish in the afternoon. Go in the morning. More fish. Some excursions don't accept credit cards and ATMs are finicky, so bring plenty of cash for excursions and miscellaneous.

The drive from San Jose to Dominical is pretty, but 3 hours long. If I come back, I will connect to Quepos, which is only about 30 minutes from Dominical. The highways are modern, but many of the side roads are steep and very bumpy. Rent a four-wheel drive.

All in all, very enjoyable vacation in a great house.

Doesn't get any better!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Serendipia and its concierge services truly meet and exceed expectations. This beautiful home is wonderfully well laid out and appointed, with master suites all privately separated throughout the house and ALL with ocean great views!! Three couples and we all felt we had our own private space all week. A perfect kitchen for cooking in or bringing a private chef (did this twice while visiting and WELL worth it!!!) Outdoors and the pool/deck area reflect the quality of this home, even a pass-through window from the kitchen to the outdoor bar and grill area! Coastal and sunset views are spectacular! Easy access to grocery stores, great local restaurants, and 5-10 minutes from perfect beaches - door to feet in the sand. Visit again? Recommend highly? You bet!!!! Love this place! Lee & Cheryl

Great family trip at Casa Serendipia!

  • 5 of 5

Every morning our family awoke to a glorious 180 deg view of the blue Pacific ocean. The home was very well equipped, comfortable and had pretty much every amenity you could ask for. The infinity pool provided a wonderful respite at the end of the day to relax and watch the sunsets - which were fabulous every day we were there. Casa Serendipia works with a local rental management company to provide a concierge for your stay. We worked with Raul, who pre-shopped for us allowing us to arrive with provisions already in the refrigerator and cocktails ready to be made! He also introduced us to a local chef who prepared 2 wonderful meals during our stay - truly magnificent and well recommended. Dominical has a lot to offer and the home is centrally located to get wherever you need to go - Uvita is a short 15 mins south and Manuel Antonio about 40 mins north. Do not miss Nauayaca waterfall on your trip to Dominical........unbelievable.

Heaven! (almost!)

  • 5 of 5

Serendipia is a beautiful, 5 star villa in every way! It is a beautiful home as nice as any 5 star hotel, but has the added feature of privacy along with it. The villa has a beautiful infinity pool that has views overlooking the ocean with incredible sunsets every evening. Nothing better than swimming looking at an unobstructed view of the ocean! The interior is beautifully decorated with extremely comfortable furniture and all modern amenities such as wifi, flat screen tv's and a modern, well equiped granite counter kitchen. All the bedrooms have modern, ensuite bathrooms and comfortable bed linens. Lastly, having the air conditioning in all bedrooms, as well as the living area was very helpful on the hot, humid days. Thank you to the owner, Howard and concierge, Alex who were most attentive and helpful to all of our needs and requests at any time during our stay (even in the late evenings if we had questions!).

amazing views and property

  • 5 of 5

when you walk through the door the first thing you see is the pool but a few more steps in you see the real view of the Ocean. This morning we spotted whales migrating a few miles off the coast.The homeowner gave some great suggestions of local restaurants and were terrific. The House has everything you need for a short or long stay. It's Definitely worth the ride down to see the Little tree Island and la Perla restaurant. Will be back again and again. Great time in the Southern Zone.

Playa Dominical located in the Southern zone of Costa Rica has been recognized to be the most Bio-Diverse and beautiful place on the planet. One of the largest unspoiled primary rain forests in Central America. Dramatic coastlines combined with abundant aquatic life, scenic cascading rivers and waterfalls, the highest mountain peak in Central America, its no secret that this is the 'hottest Spot' in Costa Rica.

National Geographic called Corcovado National Park the most 'biologically intense place on the planet'
