The Space

Perched high on a ridge overlooking Hermosa Beach and a private hidden valley, “Casa Infinito” is our vacation home and we have created the perfect luxury getaway for several couples, families with older children, or for mixed groups on a vacation retreat.

Absorb the panoramic ocean and mountain vistas, the lulling sound of the pacific surf and intimate jungle views from the many decks, or right from your bedroom each morning. In the evening, enjoy the constant cooling mountain breezes as they keep you comfortable and free of the evening bugs from the beach level.

At the same time, it is only 3-4 minutes' drive down the ridge from the world class surfing beach of Hermosa (that is often as quiet as a private beach) and another 5 minutes to the attractive beach town of Jacó offering all the North American style amenities you could want - “Casa Infinito” has it all.

Award-winning architect designed, 4,500 sq. ft, 3-level, ultimate modern luxury house with 4 bedrooms/3 full baths (2 with double sinks) and the expansive “Infinity Pool” from which the property takes its name. This 3 year old, immaculately maintained, property is now available.

ACCESS: Just over an hour from the Airport on a brand new highway. This is the fastest access from San Jose to the ocean of anywhere in Costa Rica. All-season, two-wheel drive, fully-paved and maintained access road into the property.

POOL & DECKS: Gorgeous, almost 40 ft. long “Infinity” pool blending endlessly into the ocean and valley vistas beyond. Frequent professional cleaning service. Pool shower.

Fully equipped large poolside patio with great loungers, chairs, table, hammock, overhead fans, towel rails and hi-end stainless steel gas BBQ.

Huge upper viewing deck overlooking the whole valley and ocean. Additional seating, footlights and exotic plants – perfect for elegant evening parties or quiet relaxing in the moonlight.

SECURITY: Valle Perdido is certainly one of the most secure places in Costa Rica. The only access to the valley is via the entry road, manned 24/7 by armed guards.

Wildlife sightings depend on the seasons.

  • Our group simply loved Casa Infinito. The house is huge, beautiful, clean and safe. The location is both secluded, but it's close enough to Jaco, San Jose, Manuel Antonio National Park and other Pacific spots, that you never feel isolated. The pool is simply awesome. Sheryl was quick to answer any and all questions we had. And, she helped us find a great driver for our trip -- Abner -- who we'd also highly recommend.

  • We just spent a week at Casa Infinito and highly recommend this house to anyone looking to get away from the world and relax in the complete peace of nature. The house is perched above a jungle canyon with breathtaking views of local wilds and gorgeous pink sunsets (seen best from the infinity pool's edge with a cocktail in hand.) The pool is certainly the crown jewel of this house.

    My partner and I usually stay at luxury resorts and this was our first stab at airbnb. I was thrilled and relieved to find the house well-appointed, spotless, and welcoming. Beds were immaculately made-up and so comfy, towels were clean and abundant, and the kitchen is outfitted for a chef... I would know as my partner is a chef and was very happy to cook (and grill) many lunches and dinners at home. The air-con, wireless internet, and cable tv worked without flaw... we even watched a few DVDs from the house movie and music library. We truly felt like we were staying at a good friend's home.

    The owner Sheryl communicated well with us at every step, answered our many questions, and even suggested a car rental agency (which came with a discount!), restaurants nearby, etc. She even called us mid-trip to make sure everything was comfortable and great.

    The best suggestion she gave to us is one that I HIGHLY recommend... She arranged for a wonderful driver to pick us up at the airport and drive us to the house (in our rental car). This was WELL worth the small fee as our driver was kind and informative with perfect english. He showed us a few favorite restaurants, places for beautiful sunset drinks, the best grocery stores for shopping and more. Best of all, he drove us to the front door and showed us around the house. This was important as I am not sure we could have found the house otherwise... it is hidden up a very steep and windy hill. Once you know the way, it's easy, but I strongly recommend you ask Sheryl about this add-on service when renting Casa Infinito.

    The only slight negative was the nearby beaches... and perhaps it's just a personal preference. We are big beach people and love white sandy beaches and clean, crystal-clear waters. The nearby beaches of Jaco and Playa Hermosa were ok, but looked much better in web images than in person. We found the beaches to be a little dirty and the surf was too rough to enjoy a good swim without extreme caution. These beaches were perfect for surfers... not for us. This was disappointing. We ended up spending a few days down near Manuel Antonio (approx. 40 minute drive south) and loved the beaches in and around the park. Nice sand and calm, beautiful waters! Highly recommend a trip down there, even if just for animal watching and jungle hiking.

    That said, we would DEFINITELY return to Casa Infinito. This house is a gem!

  • We spent a fun filled week in this lovely house with my sister-in-law's family and everyone had a great time. The adults loved the spacious fully-outfitted kitchen, comfortable beds and luxurious appointments (the showers are amazing). The kids loved the marvelous pool, huge collection of pool floats and extensive video library.

    The house is located close to Jaco so you can take advantage of the amenities in this bustling beach town and central location on the Pacific coast, but the house is in the hills above the town so you don't have to deal with noise or crowds. It's in the middle of a quiet forested area and the only noises we heard at night were birds, cicadas and frogs. Star viewing was great too.

    The house was well attended and cared for. The minor issues we encountered (like not having enough beach towels) were corrected within an hour of our phone call. I'd also strongly recommend the concierge service that comes with the house (Costa Rica Dream Makers). They steered us away from snorkeling in a red tide area that other groups were trying to sell us, and booked us a wonderful white water rafting trip through waterfalls and rainforest instead. They make their money on commissions, so it didn't cost us a thing to have them set up trips, and they were full of local advice. They even arranged a babysitter so us adults could have an evening out.

About
Both my husband Duncan and I are both busy health professionals living in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Although our home area is also very beautiful, like many Canadians we fell in love with the special feel of Costa Rica and hope to make it our retirement home in coming years as well as a fabulous holiday destination for our two sons. We purchased a vacation house in fall 2009 and have dedicated much effort to make it one of the most unique and best equipped properties available in this part of Costa Rica. It has become my hobby to be at least a small part of other people's vacation planning - when they are going to my favourite part of the world and staying in our house! And vacation planning is one third of the fun of a vacation. The next third is being on vacation, and the final third is all those great memories. I love it! Special care has gone into finding the right partnerships with our local property representatives (who will greet you, take you to the house and ensure that all your needs are met during your stay). Duncan and I welcome you to "Casa Infinito" and will do everything possible to make your stay trouble-free and highly enjoyable.
