Twenty years ago, we left intense careers in U.S. health care to develop this beautiful property in Lagunas. The transition was dramatic and challenging, but with a pioneer spirit, we made the uphill trek to our original wooden farm house. In those days, we threw a hose in the stream to collect water for drinking, bathing, and cooking. We went to bed with the sun, built new roads to the summit, and survived hurricane Caesar! Many years later, we have upgraded our housing and continue to enjoy the unspoiled spirit of the rain forest.

The Owner purchased this house in 1990

We originally chose Dominical as a vacation destination. On the plane from Minneapolis, we began to wonder why people bought property in Costa Rica. Just for fun, we started a list of what we might want in a parcel:

-sunsets

-running water

-ocean and mountain views, and

-about ten acres of land.

We found everything we wanted during the trip--but needed to purchase 110 acres to make it ours! Now we share the mountain with friends who visit and the international community that makes its home here.

This pristine parcel provides a quiet escape. It is a private place to rejuvenate and/or create. The property boasts on and off shore breezes that provide a tranquil cooling throughout the day.

The gardens surrounding the house contain several species of tropical trees and flowers along with the birds and butterflies that inhabit them.

A gardener is retained to do yard maintenance on a weekly basis.

Our water supply originates in a mountain spring and is monitored by community and national systems.

Breathtaking Views, Stunning Sunsets and the Magical Sights and Sounds of Nature.

A Truly magical experience in Paradise!! The views and sunsets are beyond words. To sit amongst butterflies and see the toucans perched in trees chatting away was just awesome. The property is beautifully designed and crafted. gorgeous gardens and the pool is wonderful. We loved the privacy and unique sounds of the surrounding rainforest. I got to see the stunning and giant Blue Morpho butterfly twice and it took my breath away. This home is perfect for a couple who want privacy but access to close by adventure. A trip to the waterfalls is an absolute must!! We felt like we were on top of the world! what a tremendous gift to be able to experience a week at this property. Thank You so much for making it available to us and others to experience. A 5 star time!!

ASTOUNDING!

Wow, we so enjoyed this beautiful hacienda with its superb views of the Pacific Ocean and great pool. We especially loved the privacy, and total ambiance of its gardens, location to the beach, etc. The home was beautifully decorated, and anything needed was at our fingertips. Temperatures there were perfect with a slight breeze all the time, and sleeping was heavenly with the wonderful nocturnal sounds around us!
