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!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please contact us directly regarding availability. We maintain a separate reservation calendar from this site.

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.

Fernando purchased this house in 2007

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

  • 5 of 5

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!

Excellent House!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic home and everything was as advertised...Most importantly, the view cannot be replicated anywhere we've been. Perfect for our family of four or for a larger group. The entire rental team and concierge group was there for any need we had! Hoping we can be there again next year!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the great review and for spending your vacation with us. As owners we have traveled the world, and we agree the view and location are hard to match. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Great house, wonderful vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of nine adults for a nine day stay. The house was beautiful and very comfortable...loved the full fold-back doors to completely open the living area to the outdoors. Great views from both the main house and the guest cottage. There were a few aspects of the house that were a little tired, but certainly not to the point of being an issue. Not sure when the house was built but there have been some updates I think to the deck and pool area. We certainly enjoyed the pool as it was quite warm. Although with the ceiling fans in the bedrooms most of us did not use the A/C in the bedrooms. Did not miss A/C in the main area as there were two large ceiling fans and you wouldn't want to have to close the doors.

The layout of the house allowed separation of the sleeping areas and living room/kitchen area to permit late night or early morning activity in the kitchen & not disturb those sleeping . We all had our privacy.

There are several beaches within a short driving distance, so easy to go to for even a short time. Also there are adequate grocery stores and a fresh fish market very near by. We ate in most every night and found the kitchen and BBQ adequately supplied. The dining table is great and easily accommodated all of us.

We would definitely recommend this house for a family or several couples. I'm not sure how well it would work with toddlers, but it was great for our family! We have great memories of our stay there.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for the great review. Indeed the pool decks and many other areas of the property have been rebuilt/replaced over the past few years, including water/electrical systems, windows, paint, fridge, BBQ, high speed internet, concrete stairs, bedding, towels, lights, sound system, and more. We are constantly upgrading the property to make guests more comfortable, and it's nice to hear that a very large party of 9 can stay comfortably. We hope to see you again soon.

Incredible View, none compare we have seen

  • 4 of 5

The view and property is incredible and the house is older but very nice and has more than everything you need and will enjoy. The view will steal your heart away and keep you coming back again every night to the back deck for sunsets and the monkeys in the trees (even on the roof sometimes) and the toucans as well. What a beautiful place to relax and spend time doing absolutely nothing but looking, highly recommend!!!

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!

Puertocito Point is located just 9 Km south of Dominical on the most dramatic coastal shoreline in Southern Costa Rica.

There are many ways to get to Puertocito. Take a short hop on a domestic airline from San Jose airport to Quepos or Palmar domestic airports, drive your own rental car, or hire a private taxi service to pick you up at the airport. When you book we will be happy to assist you in making your chosen travel arrangements.

Other Activities: Boating, wildlife viewing, rock climbing, shopping, kayaking, health/beauty spa.

Golf: A new 9 hole golf course is just 25 minutes south of Puertocito! There is also an 18 hole course 1:45 north in Jaco.
