About The Owner

Patti and I live in Santa Cruz California.

I am a custom home builder and Patti is a baker/landscaper/interior decorator

We had a dream....to build a house in Costa Rica. The home just completed in 2011!!!! After many years of construction......you are staying in our dream/reality house Enjoy!!!

The Owner purchased this house in 2005

Why The Owner chose Dominical

Jim , I and one of our sons, Dane took a road trip down the coast... looking for the perfect spot the buy our home.Starting @ Puntarenas... stopping at all the well know surf towns .....We just weren't feeling it!!!.....when we got to Dominical.... we fell in love with the lush tropical feel, not yet developed town... beautiful beaches and of course we had to have great surf close by!!! We made our final decision when we found this great piece of property that was out of town yet close to surf, great beaches and resaurants.The property is on the ocean side of the highway ,a great road with year round access was a must. We had struck gold!!! 6 years later ,our home is complete!!!

What makes this house unique

One of our favorite things, is when the howler monkeys come to visit...It can be while you are in the pool on a raft (in the tree just above the pool, to eat the pods) or they may come while you still sleeping in the very early morning .You will know this, because you will hear them!! The white- face monkey are very quite...you will only know they are in the area, when you notice the branches moving and see there little faces.

The sights and sounds of the jungle are amazing...we hear and see new things with the differnet times of year that we are at the house. Keep your eyes open for the big blue butterflies. One flys through almost every morning, they are beautiful!

Fabulous Private Home In the Costa Rican jungle but still close to Town & Beach

Fabulous Private Home In the Costa Rican jungle but still close to Town & Beach
  • 5 of 5
We are a family of 4 with two daughters (age 15 and 10) and this was our first trip to Costa Rica. Casa de Carroll is AMAZING and was the perfect choice for our family vacation. This was the first time I ever used VRBO. Dealing with Patti (the owner) was very easy and their concierge, Silvia, set up numerous activities for us that went off without a hitch. The house is beautiful and very private. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and the house was very clean and "like new". The kitchen is nice with granite countertops and most of the ammenities you will need (bring paper towels with you as the management company doesn't provide any). The pool is amazing. We were in the pool every morning before heading out to white water raft, zip line, surf or hike. I highly recommend Dominical Surf Adventures for surf lessons and a white water raft tour. I reccommend the zipline at Titi Canopy Tours where we saw tons of monkeys. The house looks much better than the pictures in the listing and is truly first rate all the way. The house is about 7 miles south of the downtown area of Dominical so you need a vehicle and 4 wheel drive is what I would recommend even though the driveway into the house is not that bad, you will need 4 wheel drive to explore the other areas around Dominical. We saw a ton of wildlife in our time in Costa Rica. We saw a Scarlet McCaw, Toucans, Monkeys, Iguanas, Turtles, crazy looking bugs, Egrets, etc.. The beaches are incredible and virtually empty. We hiked down to a few beaches (one right in front of the house) and we were literally the only people on the beach. The trail down to the beach is steep but not that bad since we are used ot steep mountains in Park City, UT. The ocean water is really warm and the jungle goes right down to the beach with coconut, banana, and mango trees all around. The Costa Rican people are so nice and accomodating and the town of Dominical, with its unpaved streets, is very cool and fun and has some good restaurants - we liked Maracatu and Tortilla Flats the best.

Patti and Jim - Thank you so much for sharing your Costa Rican paradise with us. It was truly the best vacation we have ever had and now my 15 year old daughter wants to move to Costa Rica!! It was a vacation that our kids will remember forever. Being in a house like yours made it so much more relaxing and special than staying in a hotel. I don't think I can ever go back to a hotel now!! Thanks again!

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this house for 9 days and words don't do it justice! We absolutely loved staying here! It was everything we expected and much more. We had Howler and white faced monkeys hanging in the tree above the beautiful infinity pool as well as toucans almost every day we were there. We almost didn't want to leave the house in case we missed something! The house was beautiful, clean and new. It is situated in a great location overlooking the ocean and right in the jungle with no other houses in sight. It was only a short road off the highway and only 7-10 minutes from either Dominical or Uvita for groceries. The owners, Patti and Jim, were very helpful and friendly. Silvia, who help set up tours and answered general questions was great too. I would recommend though doing a little research on tours to make sure you are getting what you are expecting for a good price. Our deep sea fishing trip she booked was on the pricy side and the boat didn't go out far enough for the sport fish like Sailfish. We found there was lots to do in this area including a day trip to Corcovado but not as touristy as Quepos one hour to the north. The beach just south of Uvita called Colonial beach was awesome for beginner surfers and in two days we might have seen 10 people there! Ventanas beach was fun too with caves to walk through. I've already recommended this property to many friends and relatives. I have not been able to stop talking about it since I came home!

Casa De Carrol is By far the best accomadation in the area

  • 5 of 5
This was by far the best rental we have found in 16 some years of traveling to Southern Pacific Costa Rica. The location of the house is trully amazing. It is very private, which if you have spent much time in Costa Rica you will know this is hard to find. When at the house you have a feeling of being very secluded but within a short drive you have great restaurants, grocery stores and fantastic beaches. The house was more than we expected. Beautiful views with an abundance of wildlife right in our yard. We had White faced and howler monkeys come through everyday we were there. Tucans and green parrots were perched out by the deck every morning. The house itself was very well maintained with all amenities provided. We were traveling with three couples and the house was perfect for our group. Three master beadrooms each with their own ensuite. There is a large covered deck by the pool that is a fantastic place to have a morning coffee and watch the sunrise. The rental agent was a great help, from booking private in house massages to setting up tours and rental cars. She even provided a concierge sevice that fully stocked the house from a grocery list we emailed down before arrival. All in all I cannot say enough about Casa De Carrol. It trully is Costa Rica at it finest. Many thanks to the owners and I am looking forward to next year booking another stay at your amazing house.

great spot for an adventure filled vacation

  • 5 of 5
We planned a last minute vacation over Christmas with our four sons, ages 17-23. Casa de Carroll was fortunately available and it turned out Dominical was the perfect location for touring the area. We were able to surf in the morning and head out for hiking, canyoning etc in the afternoon. The house was a great spot to unwind and regroup, soaking in the infinity pool or relaxing in the hammocks under the covered porch with the ceiling fans creating the perfect breeze. The area abounds with things to do: waterfalls with natural slides into deep pools, beaches with caves carved into the rocky coast to explore, Manuel Antonio National Park to hike to scenic overlooks reminiscent of the Mediterranean coast. surfing in Dominical.........The house had everything you could want. The only exceptions: each bedroom has only one king or queen bed, more suited to couples than for large families but we made it work with the boys reluctantly sharing beds. We were so tired at the end of the day it didn't matter since sleep came so quickly! The other is the wifi- very spotty and unreliable. We were planning on using it to plan our activities each day but it was so difficult to get a good connection. Luckily there were some guidebooks at the house which gave great information about the area. Wildlife is plentiful- we only saw monkeys once but could hear the howlers every morning calling to each other. We spotted a sloth while walking to the little Puertocito beach and a toucan made a brief appearance by the pool. Although we managed with a front wheel drive vehicle (no 4WD available that could seat the 6 of us), I would definitely rent 4WD if you can. The Jolly Roger sports bar across the street is an amazingly steep climb for burgers and wings- can't imagine how you would get there in the rainy season without (or even with!) 4WD. Fun place to go. Also recommend PorQueNo for dinner and for lunch The Road Shack in Uvita has amazing sandwiches. Ojochal is the high end restaurant district - we were unable to get reservations anywhere on such short notice so if you want to try anywhere, call in advance. I would highly recommend Casa de Carroll for families with older children or couples.

Perfect location, private and luxurious

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I, with another couple spent a week here in November 2013. We loved the house and the area. The house is perfectly set up to enjoy the outdoors, but yet be luxurious.

The beds are extremely comfortable. The place was immaculate. We really enjoyed the pool and it was a very nice comfortable temperature, not at all cold like the place we stayed in last Feb.

We appreciated the basket of food and drinks that greeted us on arrival. We had toucans, scarlet bill maacaws, howler monkeys and capuchin monkeys and gecko's all performing for us when we were in the pool - amazing.

We even saw a sloth one night coming down a tree on the way up to the Jolly Roger for chicken wings (not to be missed). Go up that hill during the day and drive the road up there, its really nice, lots of nice homes being built.

The drive here from San Jose isn't bad at all. The road is new and an easy drive.

This is a really nice spot, don't hesitate. The outdoor furniture is great too.

I recommend Costa Canyon Adventures too for rapelling down the water falls. Its not for the shaky or unsure of foot though, but its amazing.

Thanks for sharing your vacation home with us.

AMAZING OCEAN VIEW!! Just lovely...

  • 5 of 5
Wow! is what we said when we walked through the door...The view and the home are beautiful, much more than we ever expected!!
What we really enjoyed with our group, was the separation of the suites... All ,very private and well appointed....It was hard to choose which one we wanted!!
The outside living spaces is where we spent much of our time...again many different areas that we all felt we had space to enjoy with out having to all be in the same spot.....the lower "Hammock Palapa"
is a must...you've gotta try that!!
Sitting on the bench in the Infinity edge pool is just perfect for having that afternoon cocktail....or Imperial...... joined by the Howler monkey's on some of the days was pretty entertaining !!
We enjoyed the home so much, we rarely left the property.. It was just the vacation we all needed.
Thank you Casa de Carroll
