COOL, CUTE, COSY ! UNIQUE HOUSE AND LOCATION.

Dominical House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

THE PLACE - It has everything you want from Costa Rica: plus peace, coolness during the nights, intimacy, sense of space and security, breathtaking landscape all around the property.

THE HOUSE: Charming, seated on a hilltop in a beautiful mountainous area, in a very private and quiet property. In the distance, you can admire the splendid sunsets on the Pacific ocean. Il is furnished and fully equipped with everything needed for a perfect stay. It can accommodate a couple or two, or a family with two children.

The kitchen-living room area is very spacious and has large door and window openings on all sides. It is also appropriate for a wheelchair.

The bedroom on the first floor is connected to the bathroom, the other bedroom is in the mezzanine, both have a queen bed. The sofa can be used as extra bed. There is a safe closet space for your passports and other valuables.

IMPORTANT : At that elevation (2000 feet), there is always a soft breeze so it is never too hot during the day. Nights are cool which makes sleeping easy and restfull. That is why we do not have air conditioning, we simply do not need it. There are hardly any insects around in the dry season, except for butterflies, but you are in nature, so everything is alive around you. You will probably see exotic birds such as toucans, eagles and parrots in the backyard, to name a few. And you could hear howling monkeys at night, a few meters from the house.

DRIVING TO THE PROPERTY - San Isidro is the largest city in southern Costa Rica; it is 3 hours away from San José and its airport. The road is paved all the way to the house except for the last 2 miles.

SECURITY, MAINTENANCE - You will be greeted at the property by Jose and Maria who live close by all year long. They will show you around and give you the keys to the house.

BATHING, SWIMMING - The house is 20 minutes away from Dominical, i.e. from the Pacific Ocean (and surf). Driving South or North along the coastline, you will find empty and semi-empty beaches and bay areas with fine beige sand and very civilized waves. From one of the streams of cascading water on the property line, a pool was dug in a natural basin; its water is always fresh and rejuvenating. It is a very intimate and safe place.

FOOD, SHOPPING, MARKETS - A 20 minutes drive will take you to San Isidro where you will find everything, from attractive restaurants to food and clothing stores. On Thursdays and Fridays, there is a « feria » (an outdoor market) where you can buy locally grown fruits and vegetables, even organic ones. Also in San Isidro is “Lufercz”, a supermarket where you can find Costarican beer and coffee, and other exotic products such as sushi rice and nori sheets. And along the road between San Isidro and La Alfombra, there is a number of vegetable stands and restaurants with good food at very reasonable prices.

OTHER RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES - You will not have to go very far from the property to practice your favorite sport. You can take a horse ride to the spectacular Nuyaca Falls, or drive to Dominical, small town which is paradise for surfers. And you may want to visit the natural reserves in the area, go to a farm renowed for growing different spices, or on an excursion to the tree tops of the forest.

Keywords: High ceiling, open space, comfortable, original.

I am a writer, my husband is a stage hand. As such, I usually have the ideas, and he make them happen in reality. A perfect match to build a house, and make it comfortable and original. An example? Look at the lamp over the dinner table...

The Owner purchased this house in 2008

Because it combined the presence of sea, rivers, waterfalls and mountains at the horizon. We built the house exactly as we like it, open to space and nature around. It is like living outdoors, but protected from the sun & rain.

Calm, beauty, nice breeze, odors, clouds and birds entering through the front doors and going out through the back doors, fruits abundant, juicy and fresh, vegetables crispy and colored... The whole place has a feeling of what Eden was like, before the sin. Plus possibilities of surfing and horse riding a few km.from the location.

Car: necessary

Located at the junction of sky and sea, the property sits on a hilltop, and is surrounded by mounts of various sizes. The area hesitates between forest and agriculture, and lets cows and veals graze on vast pastures in the meantime. Bird songs are the main noises throuhout the days, and shades of green and colours expose their multiple variations all around.
