About Mitch Goodman

Hola!

In 2001, we traveled to the Guanacaste Coast of Costa Rica for our honeymoon. Three years later we returned and purchased property. For the last 12 years we've traveled to Costa Rica for family vacations. We were finally ready to start building our home in December of 2013 and after an exciting, rewarding journey, we enjoyed our first vacation in our new home in December of 2014. We designed the home and it was built by Aaron Berkowitz, an exceptional builder. and our good friend. Please contact us if you would like contact information for our builder.

We love music, adventure and spending time with family and friends. The name of our home, Casa Symbiótica, represents the symbiotic relationship to music, family, friends and our homes beautiful natural environment.

We put our hearts and souls into the design and build of our home and until we can move to Costa Rica permanently, we are excited and proud to share it with you.

We wish you the same love of Costa Rica that we discovered 14 years ago!

Pura Vida!

Mitch Goodman purchased this house in 2015

The Guanacaste Region is one of the most visited and spectacular regions of Costa Rica. It's temperate climate is the most comfortable in the country year round. It's rural feel provides the peace and quiet for relaxing and rejuvenating getaways yet there is an abundance of things to do if you so desire.

There are great golf courses and fishing just a couple miles from our home. You can hike and bike right on the property in Mar Vista and there are also organized trails just a short distance away. Numerous beaches line the coast surrounding our property. Some are very private while others cater to locals and tourists. Both Canopy Zip Line and Adventure tours abound in the area. We often take 1 or 2 day trips (approximately 3-4 hour drive) to the central part of the country where the Volcano Arenal is located. It is located in the rainforest and is a very beautiful area. Another very popular sport in the area is fishing. There are many charters in several locations in the area.

Watching the many different views of the sunset is a local attraction each and every day. There are no better views of the sunsets than from the back of our home. Of course, surfing and paddle boarding is what brings many people to Costa Rica and you won't be disappointed.

Unbelievable Home with Unbelievable Views

  • 5 of 5

Wow. We have stayed at many places before but this by far has been the most incredible place we have ever stayed with our family. 3 couples and 2 boys 8 and 11.

The whole place has the "Wow" factor but opening up the door to enter the place was overwhelming with the infinity pool viewing out into the Pacific. Immediately we were wondering if we should cancel some of our excursions to stay more at the home. Every room had an awesome view to the Pacific so there are no bad rooms to stay in.

This home was extremely well thought out at every angle wasting no space on the wall to incorporate a window for more spectacular views. The two separate buildings (one with bedrooms and media room the other was kitchen living room and work out gym) was nice to have. When others wanted to sleep in you are able to go into the kitchen and living room building and cook, workout, etc without worrying about waking anyone up. Also the media room with automatic reclining chairs were put into action with the excellent media sound and theatre like experience. Our boys loved watching movies before bed.

The pool with diving board was a ton of fun and our boys enjoyed playing basketball and the corn hole game. Having a private chef come in to cook for your family is a must in our opinion as I don't think you will be able to have a better view for dinner anywhere else in the Playa Flamingo area.

The pictures on the web site are great but being there in person is indescribable. Worth every penny by far to rent this place. Our entire family can't stop thinking of the trip.

Thanks to the homeowners for allow us to rent because this place will never be topped in our opinion!

Fantastic Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was amazing! We stayed with 2 other families and had tons of room. The kids all slept in the bunk room and the adults each had their own room. The pool was incredible and there were gorgeous sunsets every night. Roxana at Tropical Homes arranged everything for us - pick-up and drop off from the airport, rental cars delivered to the property, restaurant reservations and beach recommendations. We were so sad to leave!

Travelers from midwest USA

  • 5 of 5

Our arrival at Casa Symbiotica was in the evening. We opened the imposing front door to a lovely courtyard, more like a tranquil zen garden with subtle lighting. Beyond was the blue glow of the large infinity pool, and above the twinkling stars of many galaxies. To our right the outdoor extended living space and behind huge glass doors/walls the beautiful indoor/outdoor living space beckoned,, fully appointed kitchen, two lovely seating areas, dining room and incredible workout room. To the left of the courtyard was the opulent master suite and movie theater and a sweeping staircase to the two king suites and the unique and very comfortable bunk room (if I dare call it that).

We slept fabulously on our primo mattress and woke to the incredible unobstructed view of the Pacific Ocean, Brasilito, Playa Conchal and Playa Flamingo a quick ride down the hill.

Everything in this beautiful home is set up for the comfort and ease of the occupants, and Frances the housekeeper couldn't have been more accommodating, keeping the house immaculately clean, having clean towels readily available and even washing our dirty clothes.

We had been tempted to stay right on the beach but we are so glad that we didn't. Casa Symbiotica is just a 5 minutes drive from the beach and being above the ocean afforded the best of both worlds, an incredible view, peaceful tranquility and privacy.

What a lovely lovely place.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

This home was more beautiful than I could have imagined! When I walked into the front door, the view was breathtaking. I was welcomed by the ocean and a beautiful infinity pool. The house was beautifully appointed with a gourmet kitchen perfect for our private Chef to prepare meals which was organized for us. We started our morning with a workout in their fully equipped gym with beautiful views. After lounging at the pool all day we went for a walk over to the tennis courts where we saw monkeys in the trees! It was an amazing experience. We can't wait to go back!

Why stay in a hotel, when you can live in a PRIVATE LUXURY HOME with all the amenities of a hotel?

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Costa Rica a few times over the years and always stayed at a 5 star hotel. This time we stayed at a 10 STAR HOME! This home is wonderfully situated on top of a mountain affording you the most dramatic, breathtaking views of both mountain, and ocean. The finished are top notch, the home was immaculate, and the attention to detail was never spared. The infinity pool was amazing, we could walk out from the Master suite and dive right in. While we certainly joined in the touristy activities, my favorite part of the trip were our times spent at the house. There is a great work out room, and wonderful theater room, but I could not imagine looking a screen in lieu of our beautiful view! I would highly recommend this home to you. This home is private and luxurious!

High End Custom Home with Amazing Pool and Views

  • 5 of 5

Check out the pictures -- even more amazing in person!! A vacation we will always remember -- it doesn't even seem real now that we are back. The house is terrific as you can tell a lot of thought (and expense) went into every detail. The only hard decision we had was leaving to do an amazing activity (e.g., golf, mountain biking, hiking, swimming, dinner) because we didn't want to leave the house. The pool and view are two of the best parts.
