All new kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and the most fabulous kitchen view of the Pacific Ocean! New, luxury bathrooms as of October 2012!
As seen on the Today Show (Matt Lauer gushed; you will, too!); and in Conde Nast Traveler magazine: Casa Mono Loco is located within the Los Suenos Resort and Marina--specifically within the exclusive, gated Los Suenos Resort community of Vista Tres Bahias with its multi-million dollar villas and mansions (no condos in the mix here; only private, detached homes)--yet it offers secluded splendor within the resort. With dramatic, spectacular vistas of Bahia Herradura, the resort and the surrounding rain forest and nature preserve, Casa Mono Loco also affords maximum privacy. It is Costa Rica's most famous villa vacation rental.
The open and clever design of Casa Mono Loco allows one to experience the monkeys, toucans, scarlet macaws, other sights and the sounds of the surrounding lush, tropical rain forest from the comfort of your private Shangri La. The villa was designed by Ronald Zurcher, Costa Rica's most renowned architect. His other celebrated projects include the Four Seasons Papagayo, and the Marriott San Jose. Casa Mono Loco is one of the country's architectural treasures, and you can experience it yourself--a privilege afforded to few
Amenities of the casa include: Sonos music system (access millions of recordings in all genres of music), wifi, satellite TV, VOIP (Vonage) with free telephone calls to the U.S. and Canada, outdoor gas grill, washer and dryer (we even supply your laundry detergent).
Three air-conditioned bedrooms and three bathrooms; every bedroom has a flat panel television. But who wants to watch TV when the stunning view of the rain forest, Bahia Herradura, and the Pacific Ocean captivates ones imagination?! Every bedroom is privileged with this incomparable, magnificent view. The master with king-sized bed is a detached pavilion, providing maximum privacy. Beds are dressed with 500-thread count Egyptian cotton sheets. The Dome Room bedroom has two full beds and a domed ceiling. The Coral Room bedroom has two double beds. Did we mention that every room has a spectacular ocean view? The living area is an open air rancho (pavilion with thatched roof) with ceiling fans and speakers for the Sonos music system, or plug in your own iPod or iPad or other device. Beyond the fabulous indoor-outdoor living space is the pool with an infinity edge that melds into the blues of Herradura Bay.
Casa Mono Loco is the only house on the very quiet road! If you seek tranquility and to be at one with nature but desire the luxurious comforts of fine linens, fixtures, finishes and aesthetic beauty in both the built and natural environments, then this is the home for you. Yet you'll have access to all the amenities of the Los Suenos Resort, including the two spas, marina, shops, restaurants, championship golf course, room service from the Marriott Hotel, casino and more just two minutes away by car.
The maximum occupancy is strictly enforced. If you anticipate the possibility of having a group that exceeds the occupancy stated for this accommodation, then you should either book different accommodations that allow for a higher occupancy, or book additional accommodations (such as a second condo or villa). Guests who exceed the stated occupancy will be evicted with no refund for the unused portion of their stay.
To be clear, Casa Mono Loco is located within the resort (don't be misled by those whose villas are merely NEAR the resort or are accessed by driving THROUGH the resort. Casa Mono Loco is INSIDE Los Suenos Resort.
Due to the steepness of the Vista Tres Bahias road, a car is recommended.
