OCEANFRONT ESTATE: EXPERIENCE THE PUERTOCITO POINT OF VIEW

Dominical House Rental Photos and Description

3 King Suites, 1 Queen Suite, 4 baths, sleeps 8-9

The DuPont Registry of Fine Homes describes Puertocito Point as, 'Undoubtedly one of Costa Rica's premier properties with an over the water feel unavailable virtually anywhere else in this beautiful and diverse country.'

Puertocito Point can be privately reserved as a 2 to 4 suite vacation rental with occupancy up to 9.

Perched on a bluff overlooking the Pacific, you will find the Main Villa with unobstructed 180 degree panoramic ocean views. The Villa has two King Suites and a private sun deck and pool. A stones throw away you will find two suites in the Guest Cottage with private ocean view decks and full baths.

This private Estate is set on 12 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, surrounded by lush rain forest and mountains. The property is bounded on all sides by protected nature reserves with abundant wildlife.

Freshly renovated from top to bottom and under new management, the Point is a special destination, one you won't forget.

More About the Property: Puertocito Point is built as close to the Pacific Ocean as allowed under Costa Rica's strict environmental laws: 50 meters from the high tide mark. From the Main Villa atop a cliff, you will find jaw-dropping unobstructed 180 degree Pacific Ocean views. The Villa's twelve acres are sandwiched between protected green zones to the north and south with a dramatic backdrop of first ridge mountains and a combination of primary and secondary rain forest. It's a unique setting that delivers the scenic beauty and wildlife you expect from Costa Rica. Geographically, we are located in Costa Rica's more tropical and much less developed Southern Zone, making this an ideal place to experience the country's natural splendor. Despite its privacy and tranquility, Puertocito Point is just a minute from the Coastal Highway and a few minutes drive from the towns of Dominical and Uvita with a variety of amenities, including restaurants, shops, groceries, banks, etc.

For swimming and boogie boarding or surfing we recommend a two minute drive to Puerto Nuevo, a virtually private beach. Two boogie boards are on the house!

The Main Villa is comprised of a Master Suite with a California King bed and a Junior Suite with a king bed, each with its own full bath. There is also a half bath off the Great Room. Bedrooms are air conditioned, common areas are not but have large ceiling fans.

The master suite also features a Tower Room up the stairs from the bedroom with great views of the pool and ocean below. A great place to do yoga, meditate, or just enjoy the view.

With a brand new (August 2014) NetSys dedicated high-speed internet service, our fast WiFi is great for those who need to stay connected to family, friends, and/or businesses during their stay. Those with GSM phones will also enjoy strong cell phone reception, including 3G data access for browsing and email.

The Point's abundant wildlife gives guests the real experience of being in a tropical rain forest without trekking all the way to Manuel Antonio. Birders and nature photographers will not be disappointed by the property's incredible biodiversity.

The property overall has benefited tremendously from a continuous capital improvement program started in 2010 and continuing through 2014 with $50,000 of renovations to the property in the past two years. The program has completed numerous upgrades to the villas, including new roof, new windows, new pool and sun decks, new electrical lines, new water lines, fresh paint, new lighting fixtures, new master shower, upgraded Internet service, new TV, and much more.

Guest Cottage: In The Guest Cottage there is an upper King Suite and a lower Queen Suite, both with a full private tiled bath and a private furnished deck with yet another lovely ocean view. All this less than a stones throw from the Main Villa. Bedrooms are air conditioned.

Puertocito Point is very close to a variety of restaurants, grocery stores, shopping, banking and any other services you may need. There is a doctor, a pharmacist and dentist located right in Dominical, all speak English.

Your local property managers are available during your stay to offer advice on various local activities and address any service needs at the property.

Your stay at Puertocito Point will be a once in a lifetime experience, unless, of course, you return next year!

About Fernando

The Point's owners believe that travel is one of life's great privileges, allowing us to experience new people and places to forge enduring memories. We share a love for the tropics, natural beauty, and adventure, so we could think of no better jumping off point than southern Pacific Costa Rica.

Why Fernando chose Dominical

We come from a long history of adventure and outdoor travel, and we have seen tropical real estate the world over. When one of our friends introduced us to the Point, we knew it was a special destination. The views, the wildlife, and the privacy sold us immediately on this spot, not to mention the convenient location relative to the highway, airports, and local communities. We maintain that this property is without equal in the southern zone.

What makes this house unique

-- Panoramic ocean views perched atop a cliff

-- Lush tropical setting

-- Total privacy

-- Rich wildlife

-- Proximity to area amenities and transportation

-- Professional reservations and property management

-- Unique and attractive home decor

-- Beautifully landscaped courtyard and grounds

The Ocean Front Villa inn Dominical,

  • 5 of 5
John & Barbara, Folsom, NJ

An absolutely private piece of paradise! It takes your breath away and at the same time is pleasantly overwhelming your senses of sight, sound and smell.

Enjoy the comforts of "home" away from home. Lounge on the large, comfortable deck that wraps 180 degrees around the house, while lulled by the gentle sound of the ocean waves. Awaken to spectacular sunrises and experience unrivaled sunsets. Watch the monkeys swing in the nearby trees, the tucans, parrots and pelicans flying overhead and be dazzled by the brillant colors and smells of the native flora. Take a dip in the privacy of your own pool, as you look out at the Pacific ocean.

Our first and lasting impression was "what else could be better than this" ? However, we did find fabulous restaurants, spa treatments, beaches, waterfalls, hiking and zip-lining through the lush jungles close by.

We found our Xanadu at the Edge and have returned 5 times since!

Paradise at Puertocito Point

  • 5 of 5
My family of 7 spent a week at Puertocito Point in mid-August. It was our first visit to Costa Rica and we couldn't have chosen a more perfect spot! The house was lovely, clean and spacious. The surrounding property was beautifully tended, with wonderful flowers and vegetation. The pool was very inviting and kept clean by a crew of men who came twice while we were there. The view of the ocean from the various decks and porches was amazing. There were lots of lounge chairs and even a hammock to relax in. The kitchen was well stocked and all appliances worked well. The washer and dryer came in very handy. We had plenty of towels and linens. The property manager was available to assist us when we had an electrical problem, otherwise we were left undisturbed.I
The week went by too quickly and we were sorry to leave. Comments from various family members were:
"Lets come back for 2 weeks next time!"
"5 stars and 2 thumbs up!"
"Better than I could have imagined!"
We do hope we can return to this lovely house overlooking the Pacific.
Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: We are always humbled when we receive reviews like this. We are of course thrilled that your family had such a nice week at the Point, and we appreciate your choosing to stay with us given the plethora of options in Costa Rica. We hope to welcome you back to Puertocito in the near future.

We have made continuous improvements to the property this year, including new sun decks, windows, and upgraded high-speed Internet. Our unique setting and amazing views set us apart from other destinations, so we want to be sure the property measures up.

Pura Vida from Puertocito Point

Absolutely wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
We are very late in this review, but our experience in Costa Rica and Casa Puertocito Point is forever in our minds and hearts! The home was spectacular, the property beautiful, the views unmatched! We had everything we needed for our 10 day vacation. Separate bedrooms for everyone, large open space for gathering, and the kids had so much fun on the decks and pool area. The management was very attentive during our stay. We will never forget this vacation, and hope to return someday!

Incredible location with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5
The house and property were exactly as we would have imagined--everything was very well cared for, property meticulously manicured, and the house was spotless when we arrived. It might have been helpful prior to arriving to have a floor plan so that we could think about where the children might sleep, etc. but we managed just fine. We are a family of five (children ages 8,10,11) and fit in the house comfortably. We had access to the guest house, but did not need it or use it. The main house has a very large open central living space--kitchen, dining room, living room and small media/study alcove--w/ screened windows (and not air conditioned, but comfortable when the sliding doors are open). The two bedrooms are on either side of the main living space. The master bedroom is very spacious, has a king size bed, with its own sliding door to a small deck, and the master bathroom is very large with open air (screened) windows and a bidet. The second bedroom is a little smaller, with its own bathroom. Both of the bedrooms are air conditioned & cool off very quickly when turned on at bedtime. Adjacent to the master bedroom (you have to walk through the master BR to get there) there is a small loft in a turret with screened windows all around, but no A/C--this would have been a great spot for one or two of the kids if it was air conditioned! The pool was well cared for and clean, a good size and we spent most of our down time at the house swimming in the pool. The guest house has 2 separate apartments which do not connect, each have their own balcony that faces the ocean. The upstairs unit has a sitting area with TV, A/C and kitchen, bedroom separate w/ its own A/C & bathroom; the downstairs unit is a bedroom w/ bathroom & balcony. All of the furnishings & decor were appropriate to the house's style and we loved it. The only aspects of the house that might need some attention were a few loose boards on the deck and some loose tiles in the main house--which were mentioned to the house manager, and they plan address these issues. The house is right near the Hotel del Angel, which has a wonderful restaurant (serving all gluten free organic food) and spa services. Quick drive into Dominical (~7-10 min?), even though it looks far away on a map. The rental service was ok, not as helpful as concierge services offered to friends of ours renting a house down the street. Would definitely recommend this house to families or groups of friends!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind review, and we are always happy to hear that families have enjoyed their stay at the Point. We had a busy high season (as usual) this year, so there was not enough time between rentals to do major projects, such as certain sections of wood decks and portions of the great room floors. Now that things are a little quieter, we are doing renovations. We appreciate your referrals and look forward to seeing you again before long.

Indeed having Cuna del Angel right behind us is very convenient for our guests since Cuna offers a variety of services as well as a great bar/restaurant just steps from our front door. I will mention your concierge feedback to our property/rental managers - usually our people get high marks for offering a variety of extra services requested by guests, including excursions, an on-site chef, and orientation to the area.

Keep the feedback coming - it's helps us to constantly improve the guest experience.

Great sunsets and location on the Pacific Coast

  • 5 of 5
3 couples enjoyed a great 8 days at PuertoCito Point. The listing of this property was accurate. It had a great location sitting high up to catch the breezes off the Pacific and provided spectacular sunsets every evening. It would be hard to find a better ocean view rental in Costa Rica. The house is well located being close to both Dominical and Uvita which has many good restaurants and a number of terrific beaches withihn easy driving distance. Also having the Cuna De Angel Hotel a 2 minute walk provided addtional amenities including one of the best restaurants in the Domincal area.
The house was clean and well maintained and the pool was terrific. The management company was very helpful.
The house opens up with moveable glass walls to provide a spectacular view from the house and wrap around deck of the Pacific.
We found almost as much wildlife on the property as in the national parks and thoroughly enjoyed the monkeys swinging in the trees as we floated in the pool.
If you are looking for a home rental on the Pacific coast that can comfortably house up to four couples I would highly recommend this property. It was convenient to get to with a short plane ride into Quepos and a 35 minute drive on well paved rode to the property. A number of the national parks that appear in the guide books are easy drives from the house.

Owner's Response: We are very happy you enjoyed your stay in our little piece of paradise. People often comment that the wildlife rivals that of Manuel Antonio and other nearby preserves. We have much less traffic than the parks, so wildlife runs throughout our estate for all to see. Thank you for the kind review and for staying with us. We hope to see you again.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a group of three couples stay here for a week. The home has one of the best views in Costa Rica, you can't help but feel as one with the environment. To wake up every morning to the sounds of the toucans, monkeys and waves is just fantastic. You truly do feel like your staying in an grand old estate . The only negative is that the home can use a few upgrades with respect to the decking and floors in the main room. However this should not discourage you from staying at this home. Sit back, fix a drink and take in some of the best panoramic sunsets to be found anywhere..
