Overview

Dominical Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Many people coming to Dominical think that the best rental would be on the beach. Fact is that it is hot and the mosquito and sand fleas are abundant, no breeze and the smell of the diesel trucks will surely wake you up in the morning. Up in the mountain there is a nice breeze, bugs are at a minimum and it will be the howler monkeys that wake you up in the morning. CASA DE CINEMA. Located 1000' in the Escaleras Mountains is this lovely house overlooking the Pacific Ocean. This is one of the very few private houses with a private pool in this area. One bedroom has a king size water bed and ceiling fan. The other bedroom has a single bed and a double bed with air conditioning. A 32 inch TV with a huge library of DVD's is available for those rainy days. And there is a very comfortable porch with eating area, couch and hammock.Above the guest house is a large pavilion perfect for watching the sunsets. A 1/3 mile cement trail goes thru the rainforest. Down the road is the famous Pozo Azul waterfall and swimming hole. A delight for gringos and Ticos. The secluded beach at Playa Dominicalito is only 1.2 miles from the house and we're 3 miles from the center of Dominical.

About Toby

My wife and I moved to Costa Rica in 1999 and have lived here since.

Toby purchased this villa in 1999

Why Toby chose Dominical

We lived in this house for 5 years and then built another house so we could rent out this house.

What makes this villa unique

Very private. Peaceful and quiet with mountain breezes and beautiful sunsets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This casa was perfect for us. There was plenty of room for the three of us (and would have been enough room for more), and the pool was a welcome respite every afternoon and early evening. Plenty of hot water for showers, and the sink water was safe to drink. The location in the middle of the forest was exceptional. We treasured the chorus of fascinating noises from birds, insects, and howler monkeys that changed throughout the day. We saw howler monkeys, a coati (we think), lizards, toucans, hummingbirds, and many other birds . . . the place is a marvel. And the owners were exceptionally kind. Their lives and property are inspiring!

3 month stay/adult couple

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with Toby & Kim for 3 months in early 2014 while we looked to purchase property in Costa Rica. We found the house to be very comfortable. Great pool & porch overlooking the pool. Toby & Kim were great hosts! Toby is a movie buff so we were well supplied with old movies & TV series from the 50’s & 60's which was a great bonus! Our adult girls came to visit during the holidays & were also well impressed. We spent many evenings in the old open air movie theatre above our house watching spectacular sunsets. They're also located on the road where there is a waterfall which is good for swimming! Also close to Dominical for groceries, restaurants, beaches, etc. This is a great place to stay!

What a bargain this was! A very private location up in the mountain but only 1.5 miles from the most secluded beach we ever saw. Also a nice 1/3 mile cement walking trail in the rainforest. And just a few blocks from a riding stable. The owners put on a pot luck dinner and show movies in the nearby theater on Friday nights for the town during the dry season. We had the best time staying here!!.
