DON'T MISS THIS OCEANFRONT LUXURY VILLA WOW..WHAT A VIEW!

Dominical House Rental Photos and Description

2 master suites, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 6

The sights and sounds of wildlife, open-air tropical living and unforgettable views have all been captured in one special place...Flying Toucans.

(visit flyingtoucans.com)

This luxurious Costa Rican Villa is situated on a picturesque point on the southern Pacific Coast. With lots of surrounding jungle, you have all the privacy needed to enjoy your home in peace...with the exception of some noisy visitors. Yes, the Howler monkeys and the toucans can sound off at any time without first introducing themselves.

Superbly located in Costa Rica's Maritime Zone (within 200 meters of the shore), Flying Toucans is one of the very few luxury home rentals in the area that is on the ocean side of the main coastal road. This unique location combines breathtaking views of jungle-clad mountains, palm tree-studded beaches, and the tranquil Pacific Ocean with quick and convenient access all year long.

Additional Information : If you like beaches, you are in luck as we have an abundance nearby. From the villa, take a short hike down to the point and discover two secluded beaches (one with its own 35' waterfall) or jump in your car and within two minutes be exploring miles of footstep-free sand.

The living and dining rooms offer the romance of open-air tropical living, blending the comforts of home with the nearness of wildlife. The living room is a great central location to gather and enjoy all that Flying Toucans has to offer. Plenty of seating for everyone. Don't be surprised if a hummingbird or butterfly cruises through making a cameo appearance. The 'formal' dining area, adjoining the living room, accommodates six.

The large fully-equipped kitchen, with its' beautiful custom cabinetry, and casual eating area for up to six is integrated with the living room and the views beyond. Whip up a smoothie or a six course meal...your choice.

Additional Information : Once in, you'll never want to get out of the infinity-edge pool. Just three steps from the villa, it blends into the dazzling coastline and the popular Uvita 'Whale's Tail', a unique place to walk and explore. It overlooks Ballena (which means 'whale') beach National Marine Park so keep your eyes open for Humpback whales and Bottle-Nosed dolphins.

There is a half bath downstairs as well as a laundry room with full-sized washer and dryer.

Two well-furnished master suites are located upstairs. (King bed in one, Queen and Double in other). Each of the suites incorporates the use of precious hardwoods for the doors and vaulted ceilings. Relax in the comfort of air conditioning or open the windows and let the ocean breezes in. Too comfortable to get out of bed? Fine, enjoy the views from your pillow... now if you could just get someone to bring you breakfast!

Spacious bathrooms feature tumbled Colombian limestone showers and an openness that continues to let the outdoors in while providing all the privacy needed.

Additional : You will love taking advantage of the spacious terrace upstairs. It's perfect for wildlife viewing, whale watching, stargazing, photography, sunrises and sunsets, or just dozing off in the comfy hammock. Surrounding the villa are exotic heliconias, a variety of fragrant gingers, exotic palms, birds-of-paradise, fruit trees etc... not only for your enjoyment but to attract our fine feathered friends. Been looking a long time for something really special? Eureka, you've found it. We look forward to having you as guest at....Flying Toucans... it's unforgettable!

Greetings from our villa called Flying Toucans! We first visited Costa Rica in November of 1998 on our honeymoon. Having both lived on Maui for many years and traveled extensively internationally, we were interested in a new adventure and a memorable challenge. We had read about the country for several years prior to our visit and it sounded as though Costa Rica fit all of our criteria. After exploring the various regions of the country, meeting the people and having a delightful time we knew we were destined to relocate. As it happened, on this first trip, we discovered this one-of-a-kind property and purchased it. This set in motion our plans of eventually relocating. After more preparation, we made the move and actually lived in a tent on the property for several months while designing Flying Toucans. This allowed us to understand how best to showcase the awesome views and the wildlife while combining luxury with tropical living. Now that Flying Toucans has become a reality, we offer to share it with you. With years of experience in the luxury tourism industry, we believe we have created a truly unique beautiful for you to call home while you embark on your own adventures. If you have been looking and looking for that special destination you will never forget, you have found it! Hope to see you here soon, :) John and Mary Reilly

Simple compare the view, the privacy, the pool, the open air living design, the wildlife, the proximity to the ocean, the easy access, read the reviews, but don't wait too long to decide as the calendar fills well in advance!

Yes, it's exactly how it looks in the pictures. Wonderful, private,immaculate home. John and Mary have dedicated a lot of thought and pride into this home and it shows.Sometimes descriptions seem too good to be true. Not the case here. My family thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I've rented in Central America for over 10 years and this home is a gem. Go ahead, book it!

It is really hard to write yet another review without repeating what other reviewers have said.

The property itself is immaculate, way above anything we have ever rented (we almost always rent a house on our vacation). As many have already stated, you could just stay there for the entire week, without going to the beach or taking trips and your vacation would be wonderful. Sipping cocktails by the pool while watching monkeys and listening to the ocean, all in absolute privacy (jungle is literally all around you) was fantastic. That said, we did the obligatory horse riding, zip line, beaches and restaurants - it was all very nice, but we were always so glad to come back to the house and jump into the pool.

We can't wait to come back

Flying Toucans has so many positive reviews; I feel I would be beating a dead horse to simply list what everyone else has already written. Especially when you consider they are all true. Yes, Flying Toucans lives up to the hype. Rarely do you find a place that does, but everything there was amazing. My wife, sister, brother-in-law and I went February 1 – 8, 2014.

The house is as described. It is beautiful and is perfect for two couples (or one couple). It is very private and secure. There is covered parking and a lockable entry gate. You cannot see another neighbor, and you feel like you have the jungle to yourself. We saw amazing wildlife while lounging around the villa, from monkeys to toucans to a million butterflies. Though we did not get to see a sloth, there was always a parade of wildlife to keep us entertained.

The layout of the house works very well. The kitchen, outdoor living area and pool are seamlessly integrated. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking and preparing cocktails of choice. The bedrooms are upstairs and each is large with an amazing bathroom. There was no need for us to “flip” for the best bedroom, as both were great.

The view is unbelievable from anywhere. Yes, you will find yourself staring at it, completely lost in your own world.

Darryl and Donna were great. They helped us with everything we asked for and provided us with great tips on what to do, see and eat.

We didn’t venture out much, so I am really not one to comment about excursions and such. We just hung around the villa and enjoyed the view, each other’s company and the wildlife. That being said, Café Exotica was great, and Road Shack has amazing sandwiches.

We will definitely return.
Owner's Response: Thanks Eric and Stephanie for choosing Flying Toucans. We are always excited for our guests when they book knowing what they will find and then hearing that they found it even better than they thought!
Hope you can visit again some day,
:) John and Mary

Best vacation ever

My wife and I typically stay at luxury all-inclusive resorts in Mexico. After much research we decided to stay at Flying Toucans, everything looked perfect and it was! All the photo's, guest comments could not have prepared us once we were there in person, my wife cried as we entered the gate and saw the pool, ocean views and the villa. We were greeted by a Sloth hanging from the same tree that the toucans like to visit and eat berries from. The entire week the monkeys just hung out and swung and jumped across one side of the jungle (house in the middle) to the other. This was a regular daily show in the afternoon. We named the home "flying monkeys" but there were also plenty of toucans, pizotes, butterflies, colorful birds, humming birds and some very unusual critters that you have to see to believe. Really hard to believe that someplace like this exists anywhere in the world...WOW. The villa was designed perfectly, totally private from all neighbors, open aired, great weather and climate, and views from every room. One thing we noticed right away was that there were not any bugs or mosquitoes. The views of both the sunrise and sunsets were spectacular, we have never been anywhere in the world that had both. The pool was just the right size with beautiful turquoise tile that blended with the ocean below and the jungle, the infinity edge accentuated the endless ocean views. We as well did not want to ever leave the villa nor the pool, perfect temperature night and day with the best views of everything. The weather was great even though we stayed in November, a few downpours but sunny every day as well. We loved exploring the local beaches to many to mention, but especially enjoyed the Whale's Tail. The managers Daryl and Donna were very helpful with activities, restaurant recommendations etc. and they are very close by which was comforting. could go on and on (you say I have!) but we will be back. thanks John and Mary for the best vacation ever.

The first thing you see is the view...Breathe taking. Pictures just don't compare to the real thing. The house is very private, other than the monkeys, toucans, parrots that make regular visits to the feeder. We enjoyed and saw more wildlife at the house than at the national parks. Very peaceful at the house, a great place to relax! We could have stayed at the house every day and had a wonderful time!
Great location, 10 minutes from a town (food, banks, places to eat) also near several waterfalls, lush jungle, and many beaches.
The house is very well maintained, very clean, the grounds are beautiful and the pool is amazing.
People ask me if I would stay there again...Yes!
Loved every minute of the trip and house just made it all that much better!
We actually had the privilege of meeting John (the owner) wonderful man with great advice about things to do and places go.

The area between Dominical and Uvita on the southern Pacific coast is famous for its striking landscape where the mountains come right down to the water. Not subject to the north's dry, dusty season during the months of December to April, visitors to the Dominical region will enjoy the year-round greenery and lushness of jungles and forests.

While the rural airport in Quepos (30 minutes north of Flying Toucans) may be used, many guests choose to begin their adventure from the main international airport in San Jose (SJO) thus allowing them to see the varied landscape on the way down. The drive down to the villa is 3 hours, not including how many times you stop to take in the awesome views en route. Flying Toucans is six miles south of Dominical on a perfect road. If you can ever pull yourself away from the villa and view you will find abundant choices of dining, shopping, and activities close by.

Other Activities: Ziplines, nature treks, kayaking tours

Golf: Besides the new golf course there's LOTS to do around here: Bird and animal watching, surfing, swimming, beach-combing, hiking, horseback tours to beaches and waterfalls, zip lines, day trips to Quepos and Manuel Antonio National Park, butterfly farm, serpentaria (snake exhibition), ultra-light flightseeing tours, fishing.

About an hour north of us is Quepos (Manuel Antonio National Park). The casual village of Dominical offers international and local style dining, a bank/ATM, a bakery, small grocery stores, an English-speaking doctor and dentist, pharmacy, real estate offices, souvenir shops, internet cafe, surfboard rentals and visitor information and booking services for local activities. A 2-minute walk from the villa is a small and beautiful European hotel with fine dining and full spa services. The villages of Uvita and Bahia, 6 miles south, offer internet, shops, restaurants, beaches, boat tours, a butterfly farm and the lovely Ballena National Park, home of the 'Whale Tail' (as is seen from Flying Toucans). Obviously absent from our corner of the world are large numbers of tourists, suits/ties/pantyhose and traffic lights... come see for yourself!
