You'll fall in love with Costa Rica when you wake up to the sight of verdant trees and turquoise waters outside your windows every morning! This dog-friendly two-bedroom condo in the treetops offers lovely ocean views from the balcony and accommodations for up to six guests to have the perfect vacation.



Located in Dominical on Costa Rica's west coast, this condo is tucked away on a hill to provide a welcome feeling of seclusion. It's not far from conveniences, though, and a golden stretch of beach is about a third of a mile downhill.



The condo itself has a sunny atmosphere with plenty of windows and stylish modern decor to make you feel comfortable right away. Open up the patio doors to let the ocean breeze flow in while you kick up your feet and relax with a book or conversation. When the air is especially humid outside, keep the doors closed in favor of the A/C - you'll still have an amazing view!



A fully equipped kitchen with stainless appliances and all the essentials makes it easy to cook all your favorite meals. Extras like a blender, coffeemaker, and dishwasher even help save time. There are two seats for anyone who likes to keep the chef company at the breakfast bar, while four will fit around the dining table. Take your meal outside to enjoy on the balcony come evening time and catch the sunset over the water.



Between a guide book and free WiFi, you'll be able to plan your vacation days to fit in all the activities you hope to do. After a long day, you might appreciate relaxing in front of the flatscreen cable TV or enjoying a cocktail while listening to the waves crash on shore down below.



Two bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms allow this condo to sleep up to six travelers (four adults maximum). In one bedroom, you'll find a king bed while the other offers a queen bed. Both bedrooms feature a small A/C unit, private access to the patio, and a full private bathroom. Up to two children may sleep comfortably on the sofabed, and a private washer/dryer lets you take care of any laundry you may have. You can even bring one dog under 25 pounds with you,.



This condo is perfect for a family or a group of friends looking for somewhere quiet and scenic to stay and enjoy the beauty of Costa Rica. Experienced surfers might head to the beach just down the road to catch one of the largest waves in the country, while others in the group may prefer to just watch the magic happen while working on their tan. Once you've worked up an appetite, grab a bite to eat at Cafe Mono Congo for Costa Rican cuisine or Phat Noodle for Thai.



With so many sights to see, you're bound to take some day excursions. Book a tour or travel by yourself to explore the thriving jungles, waterfalls, and caves that abound not far away. If you're craving more adventure, why not try zip lining through the canopy? Kids and adults alike will enjoy a visit to the Reptile Park or taking a seafaring tour to spot some humpback whales.



Take a vacation to Costa Rica that will leave you with lasting memories - book today!

    Beautiful 😍

    This place was clean, accommodating, and affordable. Spent most the time outside on the balcony with coffee in the morning watching the waves and looking at the birds, iguanas, and other wildlife. Very nice little town about 3km away that has everything you need. Sunsets were amazing as well. Would not hesitate booking again

    This house had a fantastic view and was set up to handle at least 6 people, although there were only 2 of us. Everything was very modern and we thoroughly enjoyed the birds that visited us each day. I highly recommend this house. Just make sure you have 4 wheel drive. Also, double-check that you have the correct codes. The first codes they send you are outdated, or at least they were for us.”

    Perfect

    If you’re staying in Dominical and don’t need a large house or pool, this is definitely the place to rent. Great location, incredible views and super clean.
