Overview

About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, optional detached unit (Sleeps 8)

Casa Infinity is a new construction 3 bedroom 3.5 bathroom house built from local teak wood and Bamboo. Less than 5 minutes from the ocean, see and hear the surf break below your tropical paradise home. Surrounded by the lush flora of Costa Rica, enjoy both indoor and outdoor lounge and dining areas, a breakfast bar, and a huge covered poolside living area with sectional sofa, futon, lounges, hammock, large BBQ, and an outdoor shower. On the second floor there is a large observation deck with 360 degree views of the pacific ocean and the jungle, also known as Monkey Trails. And rightfully so, as you will surely see our Howler monkey friends, and the incredibly acrobatic White-faced capuchins! One of the only houses in the region where you will see these amazing animals so frequently and so closely. The birds and wildlife are amazing up on the mountain with us. Feel free to feed the iguanas, they love fruit! There is an infinity pool with a swim up bar, a bench featuring aquatic massage jets, and a kiddy “playa” that begins at zero depth. Relax in it while watching the sun set into the sea from our westward vantage point. Casa Infinity has a laundry room with washer and dryer. Every bedroom has its own AC unit and en suite bathroom. There is a queen sized pullout sofa in the living room. There is also a detached loft unit on the property that can be made available to help accomodate large parties or members of your party that would like additional privacy from the main house. It has its a queenn sized bed, patio with ocean views, bathroom, and kitchenette. We can accommodate any special needs, just ask! Please contact us with any questions or information requests!

About Hanit Selekter

My name is Shmulik Selekter. I custom built Casa Infinity in 2011 for my friend Mike Kren to use as his vacation paradise. Mike wanted to make this amazing home available for others to enjoy when he cannot be here, so my wife Hanit is managing the property and taking care of our amazing guests. We have lived in Santa Teresa for the last 10 years we are in love with this place!! Please come celebrate 'Pura Vida' with us.

Hanit Selekter purchased this villa in 2011

Why Hanit Selekter chose Puntarenas

It has everything....the ocean, the jungle, the wildlife, the sunset, the sounds of serenity. The feeling that you get when you are here, you cannot duplicate it.

What makes this villa unique

Casa Infinity has the rare benefit of being SO close to the ocean that you can see and hear the surf break below.....all while enjoying the lush surroundings of the mountainside. The variety of birds, the monkeys, the iguanas, the fruit trees, the flowers. No sand in your bed. So much oxygen and fresh air. Breezes that keep the air refreshing and noticeably cooler than just a few hundred feet below on the beach! This is the best of every world!

Thick Slice of Heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this is the most beautiful house my family and I have ever slept in. The view is spectacular, the pool is perfect, and the amenities are top-notch. As we traversed the difficult terrain of the Nicoya Peninsula (it had rained very hard the night before our arrival), we questioned if the house was going to be worth the arduous trip--it was! Hanit was super hospitable and Gretel was very attentive to our needs. My family (wife and three children) would absolutely stay at Casa Infinity again. The only thing we would do differently is stay longer than three nights. I yearn for just one more shower in the master bedroom garden shower!

Just Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best (if not THE BEST) house ever rented. Perfect for families looking for adventure and fun! As some other guests commented, it's much much more than the wonderful pictures say. Outside you will enjoy the pool, ping pong table, grill, hammocks and much much more. You will see the animals from your patio! (birds, iguanas, monkeys...) The whole house has air conditioners so, you don't have to worry about the high temperatures. Just be aware that you will really need a 4x4 vehicle, believe me...Grettel is a wonderful lady that comes every single day as your housekeeper, she's amazing. And Gloriana will take care of your stay from minute one until you leave. She knows everything you may need from Santa Teresa and more. She is phenomenal...! Will be back soon!

Even More Beautiful Than the Photos

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't even come close to how beautiful this house is in-person! Even though you are up a hill, you have a full view of the ocean and can hear the waves. The views are spectacular from all rooms in the house. Glori (the concierge) was very responsive, super-accommodating and overall, just a wonderful person. As this was my 7th trip to Costa Rica and 3rd to the Nicoya Peninsula, we just wanted to relax. Restaurants we enjoyed included: Cafe Social, Product C, Koji, Shambala, Katana, Fishbar, Tapas restaurant (ask Glori for exact name/location) to name a few. Our morning routine included getting up around 7:30am, heading over to Cafe Social via ATV for breakfast, then to Playa Hermosa to surf/walk the beach, then back to Casa Infinity for a dip in the amazing infinity pool, relax in the shade and feed one of the resident iguanas we named, 'Jimmy Talons'. Wake up and repeat. The only thing we wished we had was more time to stay.

Lovely views and pool, but be aware of the transportation costs

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the beautiful views and lovely deck and pool at this property, as well as the helpful host. A couple of notes of import to future guests. First and foremost, the property is at the top of a steep and treacherous unpaved hill, requiring a four-wheel drive car or all terrain vehicle. While the later are readily available for rent, as we were a group the cost of renting ATVs for a week ran in the thousands of dollars. Guest should be aware of this considerable additional cost, which caught us be surprise and was disappointing. In addition, the quality of the road may dissuade some drivers from attempting it, though we did not have any problems. Finally, proficiency in Spanish is required to communicate with the household cleaner, who is very nice.

This place is Amazing!!!! We will definitely be back. Just a beautiful house. With the most beautiful views and sunsets. All wrapped up with first class hospitality and just really nice and accommodating people. Words just can't say enough and describe how much we loved this place. The only thing we wished we had was more time to stay.

Beautiful home, beautiful views, best sunsets

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of two families, 4 adults and 5 children, looking to escape the cold and craziness that ensues at the holidays and we certainly did in Santa Teresa. One of our favorite features of Casa Infinity is the outdoor living space. It has an oversized porch that allows for dining for up to 12 as well as cozy couches and hammocks. The infinity pool is the perfect size and the kids certainly got a lot of use of it. Everyone enjoyed the ping pong table.

The first day we arrived we were greeted by Glori (house manager) and Gretel (housekeeper). We can't say enough about their sincerity and attentiveness to anything we needed. Glori took care of arranging excursions as well as excellent recommendations on restaurants (the food down here is amazing by the way) and Gretel was there every morning with a smile.

We were originally concerned that we would miss being right on the beach, but found the location up in the hills to be perfect! The wild life (howler monkeys, iguanas and aardvarks to name a few) kept us engaged in the jungle around us. The sunsets were absolutely amazing and the short drive down to the beach was just that, short. It was a nice escape to return to our "treehouse" each day.

We highly recommend the horseback riding in Hermosa, Canopy Tours in Mal Pais, Day Charter with Miquele to go snorkeling and exploring around Tortuga and of course surfing. The two older boys enjoyed the challenge of the waves and seemed to enjoy Banana Beach best.

Pura Vida!
