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.

Fantastic vacation!

  • 5 of 5

After connecting from Juan Santamaria International Airport through to Quepos on a Sansa shuttle flight, we arrived to a warm breeze, the fading glow of the sunset over the infinity pool, and a dinner cooked in house (arranged with our property manager). And the vacation was only up from there!

Casa Serendipia provided easy access to a huge range of activities up and down the Pacific coast including an animal rehab/sanctuary (Alturas), wildlife hikes in national parks (Marino Ballena and Manuel Antonio), zip lining (Osa Canopy Tour), a horseback ride to Nauyaca waterfall, surfing lessons (Bob from Costa Rica Dive and Surf in Dominical and Uvita was awesome), and splendid beaches. Great restaurants abound within a 2-20 minute ride. We especially liked lunch at Alturas Sanctuary, Dominical Sushi, wings at Bar Jolly Roger, Por Que No?, La Parcella, and Sibu Cafe. The main highway up and down the coast is nicely paved and well marked, so getting places was easy. But be sure to rent a 4WD because virtually all side roads are still unpaved, and some of the best places to visit are up the steep hillsides that overlook the wonderful coastline. (We rented from Budget at Quepos Airport.)

The layout of the house provided perfect accommodations for our family (2 parents, 2 grandparents, 2 kids), and the kitchen, TV, internet, laundry and other amenities were great. Weather was quite warm (90-95F) so we really appreciated spending late afternoon in the pool and taking in the fantastic views. The cleaning staff came twice during the course of the week and the landscapers kept the pool and yard looking pristine. The property manager helped us with several dinner and excursion reservations and arranged a chef to cook 3 dinners at home for us. (Wilber's cooking was great!) We didn't expect to meet our neighbors, but the renters to our one side and the owner to the other were both super friendly and helped us try to jump start our rental car after I accidentally left the headlights on overnight. The small neighborhood only has some of the lots developed, but the location and homes are all beautiful and a friendly security guard was at the gate 24 hours a day.

Our only regret for the vacation was that we didn't plan on staying longer than a week. There is so much to see in the area and we barely scratched the surface. Beautiful country, friendly people, great weather, delicious food. We'll definitely be coming back soon.

Magical place to unplug!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented many homes throughout the world and this was the very best. Beautifully and comfortably furnished the house was warm and welcoming the minute we arrived. Spacious 3 master bedroom suites all with interesting bathrooms. THE VIEW WAS PERFECT....EVERY HOUR WAS DIFFERENT AND MAGICAL. INFINITI POOL = MAGNIFIQUE! We loved cooking some meals at home...especially with kitchen window view. The concierge made the trip easy and efficient....he was terrific. Plenty of great restaurants to choose from. Especially in the French area. Exotica was the very best. Ask for Lucy. We highly recommend....and we'll be back!

Amazing in every way possible!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I were down visiting family, and I being a DJ was in town to play some music festivals. We decided on this house for its location, as well as its views and beauty. We had a very nice and relaxing time by the pool, cooking food with friends, and one of the days having family over. The bedrooms are all AMAZING, but waking up to the view from the master bedroom was something else! Raoul was an amazing host and all of our needs were met very quickly. We hope to be back for sure!

We spent the last week of our two month stay in Costa Rica at Casa Serendipia with two other couples. We all absolutely loved the Villa! It is a beautiful home with all three master suites fabulous with comfortable beds, wonderful linens and incredible views. Each master suit bathrooms are beautiful with the highest quality towels. We never wanted to leave the property and found ourselves enjoying the outdoor living space all day long into the beautiful sunsets into night! The kitchen was fabulous for all your cooking needs, even offering the basics such as spices, etc. Floaties for the pool were provided. Even chairs for the beach and ice chest were provided for your day excursions on the beach. Movies and books were also provided, however, we never turned on the TV nor enjoyed the reading provided. We enjoyed the house, the pool, the views, the sun, the beach and each other!

Dominical is a fun, quaint little town and Uvita is nice for day excursions. Out of all the VRBOs we have ever stayed in this one is the absolute best! We didn't want to leave! Southern Costa Rica is my favorite area in Costa Rica! We have been traveling all over Costa Rica for the past two years to see what area we love the best. Every time I go to a new area I think it is my favorite, however, southern Costa Rica is so far my favorite! If you rent this vacation home you will not be sorry! The only problem is that you will have to leave!

We will be back!

Stunning Serendipia

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you pass through the gated entrance,with the kind guard and property manager, you know that you have arrived at some place special.Casa Serendipia has it all, barefoot elegance, comfort and absolutely breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and Coastline. With 3 magnificent suites there is room for all. Whether you like the cool ocean breezes, which we prefer, or air conditioning your total comfort is assured. The experience of enjoying the sunsetting viewed from the magnificent infinity pool is simply magical. The location cannot be more convenient. Close proximity to the beach, groceries and easy access to this home add to the overall enjoyment of staying here. We know that if you choose to stay at Casa Serendipia you will never want to leave this home or the country. Enjoy your stay. We absolutely loved ours at this impeccably kept home. Pura Vida.

A Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at some of the finest luxury hotels and resorts all over the world, but our week at Casa Serendipia was beyond compare. The villa was posh in every way. The rooms were lovely - spacious and elegantly appointed - with breathtaking views of the Pacific from each of the three master suites. And the rain forest as our backyard teeming with monkeys and beautiful birds made for invigorating morning hikes.

The kitchen had everything we needed from state-of-the-art stainless appliances to pots, pans, corkscrew, whisks etc. etc. If we needed it, it was there. Better than our kitchen at home in Boca.

We'd never been to Costa Rica before and had no idea what this area had to offer but Raul, our concierge (WOW) provided us with detailed recommendations about the best restaurants and attractions, the beaches, waterfalls, and charming little shops. And he hired a fabulous chef and tour guides for various trips (fishing and rafting). I've already recommended Casa Serendipia to a colleague at the office. I just hope that he doesn't get any ideas of using it the week or two that I hope to go back.

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.
