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 as well as a futon style bed for an additional guest or two small children. 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 recent upgrades, WiFi Internet service in the house 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. 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 2013 with $35,000 of renovations to the property in the past six months alone. The program has completed numerous upgrades to the villas, including new roof, 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!

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

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.

-- 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

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!

Great sunsets and location on the Pacific Coast

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

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..
Recommended for:  Age 55+, Adventure Seekers, Tourists without a Car, Sightseeing
Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay at the Point! New decking and great room floors are in the works for the coming year, and we appreciate the constructive feedback. We always want to do what we can to improve the guest experience at this amazing estate.

Really enjoyed our stay in this fascinating house.

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 14, 2014
  • Stayed: Jan 2014
My wife and I stayed here for about a week. We were extremely pleased and plan to return. The pictures provide a good overview of the property, but they don't really show the vastness of the property or the dramatic setting. The architectural features, including a courtyard, covered corridors, hardware, lighting fixtures, furnishings seem quite authentic and are reminiscent of another time and place—heavy on the Spanish colonial. This house could be the home of a noble family or perhaps the film set of a telenovela. I spent one morning just photographing hinges, doorknobs, downspouts, lighting fixtures, ironwork, door and cabinet carvings, doorknockers, etc.,-- just to record the detail that someone worked into the design. The house is simply fascinating.

There are ceiling fans in the great room, a pair of Bose, powered speakers that will plug into an mp3 player, perimeter lighting for the entire house, a good shower by the pool, large fridge with an ice maker, good lighting and comfortable seating in the great room and air-conditioning in the two bedrooms.

As a guest, you will have to open and close the large glass folding doors, but this is easy to master. The westerly side of the house abuts thick forest (jungle is accurate) and critters will probably visit while you are in bed if these doors are not closed and locked.

The pool is a delight, and you can watch birds and monkeys almost overhead. The lower sun deck is a perfect shady place in the morning from which to observe or photograph birds in the sunlit trees near the main deck. We saw a number of very colorful tanagers as well as the visiting Baltimore Orioles. Howler monkeys greet you from the jungle, and capuchins put on a great show before sundown in the palm trees around the pool. Then they race over the roof of the house and head into the jungle for the night.

The house was spotless when we arrived. On the down side, the master suite would benefit from redecoration, and the great room floors and decking need attention. It would be nice to be greeted by more welcoming amenities in the kitchen. However, this is a stunning property, and we found it perfectly easy to make it the means for enjoying the things we come to Costa Rica for each year. We recommend the house for anyone who wants to enjoy the tropics in comfort.
Owner's Response: Thanks very much for the thoughtful review. Pictures rarely do justice to that special feeling of being nestled within a private estate property with such dense and abundant wildlife in all directions. We're glad you were able to enjoy the experience.

During the past two years, we have been making constant capital improvements to the estate from top to bottom to deliver a superior guest experience. You can see the point last year in our reviews when these improvements coupled with a new property management and reservations team began to transform the estate. Our reviews have been consistently positive since then, but there is always more work to do.

We recently took advantage of a short gap between reservations to work on many of the suggestions made by this guest, including some deck work, a brand new broadband router, restocking kitchen supplies, refreshing towels and bedding, and more. We will continue with more updates over the coming months, including the decks and great room flooring. We are committed to delivering a first-class vacation experience in one of the most scenic and memorable spots in the world.

Great place to relax and use as a base to explore!

My wife and I stayed here for nine nights, 5 with another two couples. The house has breath taking jungle and ocean views. We saw more wildlife in a morning around the house than we did at Manuel Antonio! The house has a nice kitchen and dining area; the bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds. We loved being able to slide away the glass doors so were able to live inside out. the one potential improvement here would be to have one set of windows / doors with screens so we could let the breeze in at night and keep the bugs out. Massi and Charlie were very helpful before we arrived and we didn't need to contact them while we were there. We're planning our next trip back here already.
Owner's Response: We are thrilled that you enjoyed the full Puertocito experience in August. Wildlife is incredibly abundant on the property and with fewer crowds than Manuel Antonio to be sure! We appreciate the feedback on the big sliding glass doors. Those floor-to-ceiling monsters slide on tracks in the floor, and they are great for enjoying an open air experience. But finding screens that are compatible with the tracks AND are user friendly for guests has proven challenging. We are exploring some ideas, including installing standard sliders and/or french doors with screens but only in parts of the great room that wouldn't block those killer ocean views.

We thank you again for staying with us and look forward to seeing you here again.

Puertocito Point is located just 9 Km south of Dominical on the most dramatic coastal shoreline in Southern Costa Rica. Located directly on the ocean, access to Puertocito Point is effortless with only a 2-wheel drive vehicle. The property is a short drive to over 10 popular surfing breaks. Just minutes from both Uvita and Dominical, shopping and banking are always nearby.

Puertocito Point is very private and exclusive, nestled on 12 acres of jungle and reserve, perched over the Pacific on a dramatic bluff. However, you can walk just a short distance to a luxury Spa and Restaurant where all your pampering needs can be met!

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.
