Modern Rainforest Casa Bambu
Casa Bambu is a luxurious oasis, a relaxing retreat for your mind, body, and soul. Located at 1000 feet above sea level, this five-bedroom, five-bath luxury home features year-round panoramic sunset views of the Pacific Ocean and Dominicalito Beach. Casa Bambu features unique architectural designs, four master bedroom suites, locally crafted custom furniture, and artistic delights throughout. It features many luxurious amenities: access to a nearby beach, a lush private rainforest reserve, 100-ft. waterfall, abundant wildlife and exotic birds, and an infinity pool & a ten-person hot-tub. Casa Bambu is the perfect location whether you’re looking for a vacation home or contemplating moving to Southern Costa Rica.
A talented husband and wife duo worked together to design Casa Bambu, and they were inspired by the endless sea, vaulted sky, and giant towering bamboo. From the moment you enter this stunning home, you’ll be amazed by how in sync the infinity pool is with skyline and the ocean. Giant bamboo surrounds the exterior of the house, and tastefully accents the 2-story open great room. The entire house features exquisite details, including solid cedar doors and cabinetry throughout, as well as indoor and outdoor solid wood ceilings. Each bathroom features an exotic granite or onyx counter and carved stone sink, as well as accent lighting behind the mirrors. Custom ceramic wall sconces illuminate the evenings with the subtle tranquility of “butterfly” patterns.
With four separate master suites, Casa Bambu provides a private and luxurious experience for each of your guests. The first floor suites overlook the infinity pool, while the second-floor suites feature ocean-view balconies. Each suite possesses its own charms and amenities.
The Café Azul suite is decorated in a light “café au lait” palette, accented with sea blue and white. The basket weave headboard and cabinetry were custom designed. This master bathroom uses lighting underneath its granite countertops for a muted blue-green glow. The bathroom also features a large rain shower and a soaking tub. Your private garden is the perfect place to relax and drink coffee while the giant bamboo sways back and forth.
The Madera y Roca suite features décor in natural greens and beautiful wood and stones, including a dramatic wooden headboard. The master bathroom features beautiful stonework, including a carved granite sink and a spacious 2-person boulder-style tub in your private garden.
Located on the second floor, the Pajora Elegante suite features a private balcony facing the lava rock peninsula of Punta Dominicalito. It exudes elegance with its touches of red and gold. The master bath continues this theme with dark chocolate shower tiles and with gold glass accenting the rain shower and soaking tub. An onyx bowl sink sits on top of the under-lit onyx countertop for an elegant evening glow.
The Hojas Verdes suite is also on the second floor and offers you a stunning view of Manuel Antonio from your private terrace. It’s decorated in different shades of tropical green, using intricate leaf designs on the bedding and green stone accents around the soaking tub and rain shower in the master bath. This room is accented by beautiful cedar wood custom furniture, including the bed frame.
The gourmet kitchen and indoor dining area provide enough room and seating for large dinner parties, yet remains casual-chic enough for everyday comfort. The kitchen features exotic swirling granite countertops and an island with bar stools for casual seating. Stainless steel appliances, including a gas range, complete the clean modern touch. The dining table is a breathtaking one-piece tree slab, surrounded by stylish upholstered chairs. Elegant pendant and chandelier fixtures offer ambient lighting. The great room includes 24-ft high ceilings with stunning giant bamboo beam accents. Rare wood-based coffee and side tables with tempered glass tops accent the room. Comfortable microfiber brown couches make it easy for you and your guests to relax and watch your favorite shows on the 65” Sony Smart HDTV.
Glass accordion doors grant a seamless 14 foot opening to the generous outdoor living area. You can relax or entertain, bask in the sun, float in the marble-tile infinity pool, and marvel in the magnificent view. Furnishings include a solid teak dining table, cushioned couch seating, comfortable deck loungers, and an outdoor bar area. The outdoor areas are landscaped with six species of bamboo, Ylang-Ylang trees, and a myriad of lush tropical plants. A semi-private lower terrace features a 10-person hot tub. The solar-powered outdoor rain shower near the giant bamboo provides ambiance and functionality.
Casa Bambu abounds in comfort and functionality. Multiple “deco-metal” screened windows, transoms, and doors are positioned throughout the house, on both the ocean and mountain sides, to allow continual airflow. The spacious 2-car front-entry portico gives shelter from the rain making it easier to bring groceries indoors. The spacious 2-car garage provides security and storage.
Casa Bambu is part of Arbol Viejo, a private boutique gated community, where you’ll share exclusive amenities with your neighbors. It’s located only eight minutes from the main highway to Dominicalito Beach and only a few more minutes from shopping and restaurants in Dominical, Uvita, and Ojochal.
