About Randoloh Duke

Designer Randolph Duke has long been associated with bringing his indelible imprimatur

to some if the most iconic red carpet fashions the world has seen. In 2007 Mr. Duke created an equally iconic design with his AIA (Architecture Institute of America) award winning 'Openhouse' residence.... Created in the Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles.

Casa Eclipso in Nosara, Costa Rica is Mr. Duke's latest masterpiece! The spectacular results speak for themselves! This inspired project allowed Mr. Duke to expand his celebrated design repertoire with sustainable and green concerns and working with only natural indigenous resources while developing this nature eco-estate and resort! This factor is perhaps what makes Casa ECLIPSO singular amongst so many stunning properties in the Nosara region of Costa Rica. It is decidedly the most inherently respectful of the glorious natural surroundings and the breath taking, uniquely lofty perch high above the pastoral mango groves, sprawling cattle ranches, and undulating coastline that lies below! Casa ECLIPSO... Like other Randolph Duke designs simply re-defines iconic design!

And next, Randolph Duke turns his highly sensitive eye and uniquely distilled aesthetic to another iconic location..........New Mexico, and the magical setting and luminous light of Santa Fe! Mr.Duke begins the next chapter of his 'life adventure in design and beauty' with the launching of his latest passion projects........ A collection of native cotton from Peru that redefines organic luxury with the miracle of nature's evolution and mystery with natural organic pima cotton that is also naturally pigmented in 5 decidedly soon to be iconic colors.

Randoloh Duke purchased this estate in 2009

Why Randoloh Duke chose Nosara

CASA ECLIPSO , like all projects Randolph Duke undertakes, was a passion project! One born out of the deep respect of Costa Rica's natural beauty... and inspired by a uniquely spectacular setting and surrounding environment!

To experience CASA ECLIPSO, is a privilege, and profound luxury of the most Natural and Environmentally respectful sort!

What makes this estate unique

Remote beauty

  • 4 of 5

This is a great, very private house in a beautiful location. The views are just amazing and the sunsets over the sea are just great.

Casa Eclipso was the perfect spot for our family of 6. The long farm house table is just wonderful and there are several fountains to enjoy nature. You will definitely need a 4 wheeler to drive up the steep dirt road. We enjoyed the outdoor shower and watching the birds and monkeys. The detail and the work it must have taken to build this place on top of the hill is just astonishing.

Be aware however, that the casa doesn't fully live up to its description any longer. There certainly never was AC and the WiFi is not working. As much as we understood with our limited Spanish, I would not expect it to be working for the foreseeable future. There is no dishwasher soap (and you can't buy any in the area) and the stove has only two working burners. There is no Toaster... So if you plan on cooking your own elaborate meals or to do entertaining this might not be the right place for you. Plenty of light bulbs were burnt out and the pool was more cloudy than clear.

This place worked great for us and is very private, but it doesn't fully live up to the flowery description any longer.

This place is amazing! A lovely, eclectic mix of spaces with an amazing view.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Eclipso was the perfect spot for our family vacation. Close, but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Nosara area, the home and property were well laid out and appropriately furnished. The house is situated a top a hill with an exhilarating drive up but well worth it. As mentioned the view and especially the sunsets were insane!

Randolph was very easy to communicate with and Arturio the caretaker was pleasant and easy going, kind of like everyone else.

Its about a 20 minute drive to the popular surf beach and about 40 to the most amazing beach in the world, in my humble opinion, but I will let others decide if they can find it! Pura Vida indeed!

If there is a piece of heaven on Earth, this is it!

  • 5 of 5

This place is breathtaking! The pictures on the site do not really do it justice. Casa Eclipso is up on a hill and there are NO neighbors. The view...WOW!! You are secluded in a magical environment. Its close enough to the town activities. We actually ended up spending most of our time in the house because we only had 2 days and wanted to soak in as much of it as possible.

The place is very well stocked and Owner was very quick to respond to questions/concerns.

We met the housekeeper of the property at the main (and only) gas station in town and we followed him to the the property as this property does not have an address, therefore cannot be put in a GPS. Since the housekeeper did not speak English we did most of our communication with him through the owner.

This place even has an outdoor shower which we used because there is no one around to see you! So happy we made the decision to add Nosara to our itinerary.

BEYOND EXPECTATIONS! Casa ECLIPSO delivered evverything we coud dreamed of.....AND MORE!

  • 5 of 5

Rarely can one boast about a dream vacation where everything exceeds expectations. Our time in Costa Rica was highlighted by our wonderful stay at Casa ECLIPSO. We couldn't wait to return to our paradise-like retreat each day after our adventures and activities which Nosara provided. Just entering Casa ECLIPSO instantly welcomes and relaxes you in such a magical way. The setting is unparalleled! Truly breathtaking views, that change daily with even the most subtle of weather changes, are virtually cinematic! I think we took more pictures on our trip than any other. It's that inspirational! The accommodations were a perfect blend of indigenous to the region, and very integrated with the spectacular surroundings. We experienced friendly visits from monkeys in the trees, many exotic birds, and butterflies of astounding color that all frequented the surroundings. Our daily morning hikes in the hilltop setting provided even more abundances of the natural beauty that make Casa ECLIPSO so unique!

I would have given Casa ECLIPSO 6 stars if! We can't wait to return and bring our friends whom have viewed our numerous pictures and video diary of our "once in a lifetime" vacation. Or perhaps 'DREAM VACATION' is a more suitable phrase! Everything you could dream of.....and then some!
