About this home

Our goal is to rent this amazing house and property. If you feel the price does not work for you and your family make us an offer and will see if we can make it work.


The sunset isn’t the only enchanting thing about this luxurious villa. Built in 2013, the whole property is designed for you to experience the best that Costa Rica has to offer, getting away from it all while relaxing in supreme comfort and close to all the adventure you’re looking for.



On the outside, you will never tire of breathing in huge views of the Pacific Ocean and the Talamanca Mountains. This is the magic of our rare setting, tucked between mountains and the coast, and is why visitors find this to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. Frequent visits by exotic birds and animals leave you feeling as though you are staying in a wildlife sanctuary while you sun bathe, watch gorgeous sunsets, or just chill with a favorite drink. From the balconies, you feel suspended above the canopy while from the dipping pool, surrounded by jungle.



Inside, the 3-story, 3500 square foot villa includes three master suites that comfortably sleep six guests, each with their own stunning view of the ocean. The fully equipped kitchen has modern granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and the utensils you need to either prepare your own dishes or hire a private chef to create some of them for you. Enjoy your meals in either indoor or outdoor living and dining areas.



When you’re ready for more exploring and adventure, there is a full menu of things to do within an hour’s drive, including farmer’s markets, fresh fish vendors, canopy tours, ziplines, waterfall rappelling, sport fishing, horseback riding along the beach or to waterfalls, walking alone on beautiful beaches, seasonal whale watching, surfing, diving, ATV tours, yoga classes, spas and so much more. Follow your interests on your own or contact the house manager, your personal concierge during your stay, for information or for help with tours and travel arrangements.



4x4 vehicle is required for this property.

    Fabulous but remote getaway

    This is a beautiful house with spectacular views from nearly every window of the rainforest and Pacific Ocean beyond. The sunsets are amazing from the house's decks. It is a very peaceful and quiet place to relax on vacation. The house itself is well-appointed and comfortable. There is an open plan kitchen, dining, living area on the main floor. The bedrooms are very large, each with it's own bath, and well spread out affording privacy. The pool area is delightful with a great deck to hang out. Surrounded by rainforest, we were able to see numerous tropical birds quite closeup. Other reviews have noted that access to the house can be complicated. We agree that 4WD is VERY DESIRABLE. It is 2km from the main paved highway to the house, and for the most part the dirt road is steep and rocky. We arrived at dusk and tried to find our way to the house, but finally had to call the caretaker, Vanessa, who lead us to the house. It is also noteworthy that Dominicalito is some distance from the larger towns of Uvita and Domenical where you will have to go to shop for groceries, if you plan to cook at the house, or grab a meal out. It's also some distance to any of the attractions that you might want to visit (15km to Uvita where you can go whale and dolphin watching; 50km to Manuel Antonio and the National Park there).

    Dominicilta Stay

    Beautifully sited on ridge overlooking the ocean. Had toucans near the plunge pool daily. Had 3 grandchildren and the pool was great for them. A little hard to find initially but worth the effort. Better road than many we have encountered in CV. Comfortable beds with air conditioning. Terrific after a four day stay in a tree house. Would come again.

    Wild and Wonderfull

    Could do with a little touch up , needs new sun loungers at the pool, dish washer not fitted correctly , otherwise lovely house with fantastic views, will need 4x4 to get up to the villa from the main road, plenty of restaurants at Dominical beach, only 20 minutes by car, or 30 minutes to Uvita for more restaurants, ATM , sumermarket and Uvita tourist office to book Zip lining and Whale watching , which were really fun, around the corner from the tourist office is Jungle ATV Tours which was also great fun, overall great placae and lovely area.

    LOVED IT

    The house was very clean. I will say there are some repairs that need to be made (tape and float) as with most coastal homes they have this issue. But do not let that stop you from staying here! Plenty of room. We have a family of 4 (two teens) and everyone loved having their own room. Plenty of room for more guest as well. The pool is small but great to cool off in in the evenings. We loved that the Toucans were in the tree right next to the house. The views were amazing. Wishing I was back there right now! Loved my coffee on the patio every morning! Next time staying longer! Yes you will need a 4X4 vehicle. Do not let that scare you it is not that bad and very worth it. Quick drive to beach. Kids learned to surf and several really nice beaches in driving distance from house. A few great restaurants as well. Stop at the bigger grocery store on the way (the BM) and get your fruit from the roadside. Our kids wished we had another week there and a few days to just stay at the house. I would Love to go back. I must say they are starting to develop this area. I am so sad as the views will be gone. Right now nothing around but jungle and beach view.

    What a view!

    Great location, spectacular view! But the ants... the kitchen was infested with them. Home was clean & beds were comfortable, however it is in need of an exterminator. Couldn’t run the clothes dryer & the AC, the breaker would go off every time. The surrounding scenery was breath-taking!
