Overview

Overview

Dominical House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Panoramic Ocean/Mts views, high above all others.

Casa Panoramica provides a spectacular white water ocean view from a newly completed 3 bedroom home nestled privately in the jungle at the top of the mountain, at the end of the road, with no through traffic, a guard at the entry of our gated community and a 24/7 caretaker on the property. You’ll love exploring my 5 acre retreat with extensive and well kept hiking trails and lookouts starting at the doorstep and meandering into the depths of the jungle. Watch for toucans, parrots, white-faced monkeys, howler monkeys, jaguarundis, pizotes, peccaries, hummingbirds, morpho butterflies, sloths, and much more.

Casa Panoramica is situated atop a ridge in the beautiful Costa Verde Estates (CVE), where you will experience peace, quiet and nature at it’s finest. CVE is a gated community with security. This beautiful house was finished in Jan 2010 and offers you all the comforts of home. There are 2 kitchens and both are fully equipped with all the modern conveniences including a stove, microwave, toaster, cutlery, dishes and more... The three bedrooms can comfortably sleep 8 and have plenty of space for your personal belongings in the beautiful cedar closets. There are two bathrooms, one upstairs, and one down. Your own washer and dryer is located conveniently just outside the front entry. You can watch sunsets and sunrises from the spacious terrace that surrounds the house.

The views from this property are absolutely breathtaking. Located at 2100’ above sea level, Casa Panoramica is 1000’ higher than the closest development below, yet still close to the water. This extra “lift” offers spectacular 360 degree views. from the southern to the northernmost tip of Costa Rica. The views include the Osa Pennisula, Isla Cano, the Whale's Tail, Playa Hermosa, Punta Dominical, Manuel Antonio, and the Nicoya Peninsula. Add to that the back views of Costa Rica’s highest mountain peak, Chirripo (13’000’) and the beautiful Diamante Waterfalls. This is simply on of the most amazing view sites in the country or the world! It will take your breath away, guaranteed!

Because of the elevation, air conditioning is unnecessary. There are breezes from the ocean during the day and from the mountains during the night. The average nightly temperature is 72 and the daytime temperature hovers around 77. There are also ceiling fans in each room. The beach temperatures are typically at least 8-10 degrees warmer.

Perhaps you’d enjoy hitting the beach and then returning to Casa Panoramica for a snooze in one of the several hammocks situated around the terrace. You can watch and hear the waves roll in while enjoying the breezes and a good book. There’s also a BBQ for you use should you decide to grill up your own catch of the day or buy some fresh fish down the road.

Should you feel the need to be connected, try out the internet connection (512K down). (Please bring your router if you prefer wireless.) There’s also great cell phone reception so you can rent a cell phone and stay in contact with those you choose. Or just plug your iPod into my speakers and veg out.

The house will be nice and clean upon your arrival. But, if you’d like additional housekeeping during your stay, I can arrange that for $35 for each day you’d like the housekeeper to visit. I can also help with other information or arrangements you need to have a fantastic and memorable visit.

If you like sublime isolation, beautiful ocean views and want to feel like your living in your own private National Wildlife Park……you’ve found the place…..Casa Panoramica.

If you want more action, Manuel Antonio is just 1/2 hour away on the new highway ( and Jaco, 1 hour+). With hundreds of bars, restaurants and a beach all in walking distance and on paved roads with no 4 wheel drive necessary. It is everything that we don't have on our wilder coast line! So you can stay in the wild and dramatic Costa Rica with access to the developed tourism just down the road!

What makes this house unique

Just down the hill are plenty of beaches and restaurants to chose from. At the Costanera Highway 4 km down on a well maintained and partially paved road turn right to Dominical, an international surfing destination,10 minutes away or left 8 minutes to Playa Uvita with many restaurants and services. The Costanera Highway is one of the most beautiful drives anywhere with the jungle covered mountains coming right down to the beach. This is not a walk to beach property. We look down on everyone below who has to have A/C all night while we are 72 degrees every night all year! All that for 10-15 min drive up with great views along the way.

Amazing

  • 5 of 5
Words can't begin to describe how pleased we were with our stay. The house exceeded our expectations and as other people have stated, the pictures don't do it justice. Scott was easy to work with and Jose was there when we had questions. The drive up the mountain takes about 15 minutes and 4 wheel drive is a must but the view makes up for it. The kitchen was well equipped and there were plenty of towels and linens. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying at the house.

Amazing Spot

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here w/ my father, mother, brother and his girlfriend in July '12. The house was as decribed - clean and beautiful with an amazing view. Jose and was quick to help when we needed him, otherwise he was not intrusive in the least. Scott the owner was very patient and open about answering questions which was a huge help for first time visitors. The forests surrounding the house were loaded with trails and we took walks every morning to work off the meals from the night before! I'd say a legit 4WD truck is a must to get up the mountain. There are some pretty steep parts, but nothing scary. The ride up and down the mountain was part of the fun. There is no TV there, but we didn't mind and just watched movies on my laptop. The internet when we were there was spotty as well, but I think that comes with being on top of a mountain in a rainforest! Again, wasn't an issue.The house was really well located to hit Dominical, Uvita, or even Manuel Antonia. There are a couple of good markets down towards Uvita - short drive away. Toucans were a common site each morning which was pretty amazing! Also Aracaris, but these were more rare. All in all, an awesome place to stay and I would definitely go back.

Great experience at Casa Panoramica

  • 5 of 5
My family and I stayed 3 nights here at the end of our trip to Costa Rica, and we EASILY could have stayed longer. The view was absolutely AMAZING! My husband and I have done a lot of traveling and sight seeing in Costa Rica, and the view from this property is among the best. This house far exceeded our expectations. It is very well kept and is equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. Four wheel drive is definitely a must. It's a long way up to the house, but the view and the accommodations make it all worth while. Jose, the grounds keeper, was very helpful when we needed him. He and his family are WONDERFUL. The owner was very easy to work with, and he answered any questions or concerns very promptly. Next time I am in the Dominical area, I will DEFINITELY be staying at Casa Panoramica!!

Simply amazing

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week in July and had a great time. A killer view and cooler weather than at sea level make the drive up the hill worth it; just make sure you have a 4WD (which I would recommend of Costa Rica in general). I doubt I will every stay at a place with a better view. The house was very upscale, cozy and well appointed. I spent quite a bit of time lying in the hammock and taking in the view. Scott, the owner, was extremely helpful and responsive. Jose, the caretaker, took good care of us. I highly recommend Casa Panoramica.

One note, my guess is that most that come here may spend a lot of time in the house, but when they go out they will head down the hill. You would be missing out if you did not walk around Costa Verda Estates.The views are amazing and you will see tons of birds. Flocks of parrots, parakeets, toucans. Many others whose names I have forgotten. Early morning or late afternoon seemed to be the best time. Scott's property also has trails through the jungle which we were remiss in not exploring.

Casa Panoramica

  • 5 of 5
As the locals say...Pura Vida! That explains our stay at Casa Panoramica. We traveled with a family of 5 to Costa Rica this past July. As we arrived at the property, we were excited to get out and explore. The home is spacious and open with all the comforts of home. It had everything we needed from towels, to kitchen appliances, speakers (for our iPOD) and washer and dryer. It was easy for us to get in a vacation state of mind. Not to mention the views, which were AMAZING!! The home is nestled on the side of the mountain with views of the ocean and mountains at every angle. The pictures shared on the site do not do this property justice. Nature all around, so don't be surprised if you wake up early in the morning to a song from the birds. The home does not have AC, but I promise it's not needed. The breeze that flows through the house provides enough airflow. You might even need a blanket.
The adventure begins as you begin your trek up the road to the drive way. You will definitely need a 4x4 and we found a GPS helpful. Many of the roads in Costa Rica do not have names and directions are generally provided by landmarks. So, having turn by turn directions as you venture out to activities is helpful. There is a small town about 10 minutes away (Uvita) that has a supermercado (supermarket), visitors center and a bakery (panaderia). All of them come highly recommended. Some of the activities we participated in were Horseback Riding (Don Lulu's Naucaya Waterfalls), ZipLine Canopy Tour, ATV Tour and White Water rafting. We are a pretty active bunch! Our favorite spot... the local waterfalls. There a few near Dominacalito and Uvita, which are about 10 km from Casa Panoramica.

The owner Scott was great to work with and set our expectations accordingly. The groundskeeper Jose was a friendly face and was very helpful in providing needed directions and recommendations. To share the sentiments of some of the previous house guests - we enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay at Casa Panoramica again. We stayed for 8 days and it was too short! We all had wished that we could stay a little longer. This is a property that you don't want to over look, it surrounded by the best of everything. You can relax and enjoy the serenity at home, venture out to hang with the loca

Great time!!

  • 5 of 5
Scott, the owner was great to work with and answered probably a million questions for me. We traveled as a family of four - the kids are 8 and 6. The place was perfect for us. I'll admit we were apprehensive of the "driveway" at first, but we sucked it up and considered it part of the adventure. The new pool was a great size and stayed very cool. It was a good way to relax after a sweaty day of adventure.

Jose and Cecilia are very nice. We do not speak Spanish, but we got by just fine.

Restaurants, grocery stores, and activities were all very close, but we still felt secluded. We wanted to be on adventure, do some touristy things, and relax too. We were able to go at our own pace and not have to be in a big group. We were able to go zip lining, horseback riding, whale/dolphin touring, and mangrove touring all within the vicinity of the house. We also spent time at the national park beaches. The one at Playa Penuela was gorgeous. We had originally planned on going to Manuel Antonio, but we didn't feel like we needed to with all that was available locally.

The views were simply stunning. Don't miss the moon setting! It woke me up at about 3:00 am shining in my eyes. Unbelievable until you see it!

We'd love to go back again! Don't miss this opportunity!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! March is the height of the dry season and you made the most of it. The gravel and concrete road up the mountain is kept up very well by local standards. Four wheel drive is a must for all the best views. The last section that is my personal driveway is due to be relocated to a much easier and level access in the next year or so. The final touches on such a big building project can take a little time.

Please come visit again any time!
