Ideal for nature lovers, mountain bikers, birders or family reunions.
At a height of about 600 meters above sea level, Casa Altamar enjoys a pleasant climate, beautiful sweeping views of the valley, sea and forest. Many times you will be above the clouds!
Take a dip in the infinity pool, or in the stream that runs through the property with more than a dozen natural pools.
Explore the surroundings and the beautiful beaches nearby such as Palo Seco, a thirty minute drive. The road along the way to Casa Altamar is dotted with picturesque communities and landscapes.
Designed in a modern architectural style with large expanses of glass, filling living areas with natural light is split into two units that are connected by a breezeway. When rented together, there are a total of 4 bedrooms, 2 living rooms and 3.5 baths to accommodate 10 guests.

Interaction with Guests
The owners are not always present but there will be a person in charge of welcoming our guests and to attend their needs.
Parrita is the closest town, Palo Seco is the closest beach, both Palo Seco and Parrita are about ½ hour away.
On the off road (19 km) to Casa Altamar, at Las Vagas, a village on the way (15 minutes) you will find a Soda (restaurant) and a basic grocery store.
There is an other Village near by but everything is very basic and people close early.
At Parrit you will have more selection.
I recommend to get there by car.

What about our stay at Casa Altamar?
First, it's a dream home! You will find the comfort and privacy that we dream of when we plan a holiday in a house that is not ours. And then you will find the scenery, enchantment and wonder of a truly original house, in a unique setting. Head in the clouds, you will gasp when you realize that you have the view of the ocean and the greenery of the area. Every morning, it is a joy that is renewed! The pool, the rooms, the windows, the space, and the hiking to the falls is absolutely amazing!
Everything is in place so that you spend an unforgettable stay.
How-to: the guidance and advice from the owners on the way to get there is really clear, and you'll have the other details you want answers by writing to the owner.
I will return gladly!
Casa muito tranquila, espaçosa, com inúmeros cômodos e ambientes confortáveis, e uma vista maravilhosa.
Ela é muito bem (email hidden) churrasqueira e pebolim. Nela conseguimos nos isolar do resto do mundo, ao mesmo tempo que temos acesso a internet e tv a cabo.
O isolamento tem um preço, que é encarar 19 Km de estradas de terra e muitas ladeiras, a cada chegada ou saída da casa, mas a casa vale cada metro desse caminho.
O tempo que passamos foi muito agradável, e se possível voltaremos a ela. E se você procura tranquilidade, com certeza vai encontrá-la aqui!
O caseiro Cristian é bastante atencioso e cuidadoso, estando sempre à disposição, o dono é prestativo e responde prontamente quaisquer dúvidas, e Sam é uma cachorra linda e muito bem educada.
This house is breathe taking!!! I have never been in a more peaceful and beautiful place.
It is off the beaten track and worth the drive. This place is heaven on earth! Stunning views. #grateful to have had this experience. Clean and Christian was wonderful and helpful!!!
The reservation was canceled 107 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
It was pretty remote. It took 30 mins to get anywhere because you have to drive through a palm tree farm. It was really relaxing and nice. I would come back if I had a party of 10 or multiple families because it was A LOT of space. Overall we had a good experience. Bring all your own toiletries.
The house is very nice, clean and the view is incredible. Georg is a great host. Great experience. Definitly recommand it!
We loved it!! Thank you Georg and Christian. We had such a great time and really had a chance to relax!!! We made it down the mountain Sun and Tuesday and enjoyed Manuel Antonio and the beach.
We are so glad we had a four wheel drive vehicle. With 5 people in the car not sure a regular car would have made it up the hills. It is a 30-35 minute drive on a 20 mile an hour dirt road which is steep in some places but it is so worth it when you get to this beautiful home! We highly recommend it for folks who want to rest and enjoy the environment. We loved the sunrises and sunsets overlooking the beautiful landscape. Christian speaks some English and is very helpful with things in the area.
I'm from Switzerland and before I came to Costa Rica I used to travel all around the globe.
Now I live in this beautiful country for about 20 years.
On the beginning I was running a hotel with my wife in Manuel Antonio after that we found this lovely place where we built Casa Altamar. We live in San Jose and are always grateful to have a place were we can escape from the stress, pollution and noise of the big city.
