The Community & Neighbors

And yet … we realize that Casa Bambu & the Arbol Viejo Community may not be for everyone.
Why four master bedroom suites?
Maturity and wisdom teach us that the most beautiful experiences in life are the ones we share with those we love – that’s why Casa Bambu features four unforgettable master bedroom suites.
It’s inevitable – you will want to share the incredible magic with your family and friends. And you’ll want each of them to awaken to the majesty of the breath-taking view, experience the comfort of exquisite appointments, and drink in the tranquility of special private spaces.
Casa Bambu is designed so that each of the four master suites offers its own unique charms and secrets. When your guests come to stay, you’ll never need to apologize for someone getting the “not quite as good” bed & bath.
The two lower suites overlook the infinity edge pool. Each has its own private “secret garden,” one with loungers for gazing up into the towering bamboo, the other with a carved boulder outdoor soaking tub.
The two upper suites each have private balconies, bringing the spectacular Pacific Ocean vistas to an even “higher level.”
It’s not enough to simply “look good” – it’s just as important that a house “lives good,” and stays that way! Casa Bambu offers the perfect harmony of form and function.
With ten years of travels throughout Costa Rica, the builders have gleaned invaluable insights into what does (and doesn’t) contribute to an ideal home in this part of the world.
Seemingly mundane things like airflow and directional aspect contribute immensely to comfort and ease of living, and yet often seem overlooked.
With rigorous standards of US Professional Civil Engineering, great care has been taken in all areas, including durability of construction, the stability of land, and management of high volume rainfall.
A combination of “deco-metal” screened windows, plus operable screened doors & windows, are strategically placed on both the mountain and ocean sides of the great room.
Perfectly positioned from floor to vaulted ceiling, these allow for constant airflow throughout the day and night – eliminating the need for large-scale and expensive air-conditioning.
Ceiling fans in all indoor and outdoor living spaces augment the continual air movement.
The bedrooms are designed to flex either way – enjoy the natural airflow, or choose air-conditioned sleeping comfort.
Screened openings in the connecting master bathrooms provide flow-through breezes when desired.
An ingenious “louver” system in the upper bedrooms can be opened to capture the natural currents, or closed to seal for AC use.
The large 2-car entry portico provides dry cover for unloading passengers and groceries no matter what the weather.
Generous 1.5 meter roof overhangs and over-size gutters assure interior dryness and enjoyable outdoor living, even in the heaviest of downpours.
Roof-top solar water heaters provide eco-friendly hot water for shower and bathing comfort.
