Guestbook comments from the owner

If you’re looking for the real Costa Rica experience then you have picked the right place. The neighborhood of Escaleras will give you a very good feel for the country. It has a good variety of native and English specking community to give you a clear idea of day-to-day life in this part of world.



This is a home away from home in Costa Rica. Well located just above the town of Dominical and close enough to all the recreational things one would like to do when on vacation.



There was plenty of room for our family of five to each have their own bedroom and a well-equipped kitchen that any chef would find convenient.



The large pool kept us all cool and entertained on the days where we just wanted to lounge around.



Don’t speak Spanish, no problem. The manager of the home is only a phone call away. He has a great relationship with most of the local businesses and can direct you to the best places for local activities and entertainment.



We had a great time all day long and had a true home to retire to at night to review our day and plan the next.



We would rent this home again without hesitation. We can’t wait for our next holiday to Costa Rica.

Perfect spot to relax

  • 5 of 5
A photo of the view from the pool is on the front of my phone & keeping me going back in the cool of a late London summer… It's simply breathtaking, especially early in the morning and at sunset. Sitting there watching the Toucans, hummingbirds and many butterflies was a highlight of our trip. The pool is also great to swim in & for the kids to play, and the garden is beautiful. The house was really spacious for the four of us and had everything we needed, including good wifi (pre-requisite for teens…). Neil is really helpful, and a source of tons of information about the area. Dominical itself is very laid-back and low key, and there are lots of places to eat & drink, as well as to learn surfing/kayak/stand-up paddle etc. We had a great afternoon walking & zip-lining at Hacienda Baru where the guides are brilliant at spotting wildlife and telling you all about the rainforest (they also do night tours and overnight camping trips), and the walk out to the whale tail at low tide to snorkel is also well worth doing. Travelling in the rainy season was good for us, we had sun for most of the day, then some spectacular rain (warm!) & lightning shows. It's also much less busy than I'd imagine it is in low season. All in all it was a perfect place to relax before heading down to Corcovado

A very special place

  • 5 of 5
Casa Las Terrazas is a very special place. I had spoken to others who had gone to visit before us (and seen the pictures) but nothing is as spectacularly breathtaking as experiencing it first hand. Neil worked with us in advance of our stay to help us set up activities we were interested in: zip lining (Hacienda Baru), white water rafting and horse back riding to the water falls (Don Lulo's/Nauyaca Waterfalls) - all of these were great experiences and happy memories were made. Our motley crew of 8 (four adults and four children) were met and welcomed by Neil in Dominical and then shown to the home. We did go grocery shopping and prepare a few meals in-home while staying at Casa Las Terrazas (which had everything we needed in the kitchen.) There were a lot of great restaurants in the area too! We loved the Jolly Roger which is super close to the house - we even went there twice during our stay. We also tried and enjoyed Tortilla Flats (Dominical), El Avion (Manuel Antonio near the National Park), & La Parcela (Dominical) just to name a few. Staying in Costa Rica/Dominical was a very refreshing vacation. Casa Las Terrazas provided the perfect place for our two families to "unplug" from our busy and stressful lives and to spend some quality time making memories. Just lounging in and around the pool and taking in the beach views while enjoying the lush greenery and beautiful birds at Casa Las Terrazas would have been enough for us..... but Dominical and the surrounding areas have so many things to offer so that you can experience Costa Rica. We would definitely return and would definitely recommend this fabulous home to friends and family alike.

Perfect Costa Rican Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
First time in Costa Rica with my girlfriend and some friends. Casa Las Terrazas was the perfect place to stay. The views were amazing and the house was great. It was the perfect amount of space for the six of us. Awesome kitchen and grill to cook with and a very well maintained property inside and out. Neil was very helpful in giving us recommendations for activities and food in area. Even for the start of the rainy season, the weather was perfect. Dominical is a lazy coastal town perfect for all ages, especially for us (mid 20s). It was hard to leave Casa Las Terrazas but we will definitely be back!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5
This property is a dream. It was in pristine condition- clearly maintained at the highest standards. The layout was perfect: the bedrooms, the bathrooms, the porch, the pool area, the kitchen, is laid out for maximum comfort but also to highlight in every possible way the amazing view the property boasts. Everything points to that view, which was a highlight- waking up every morning to see the beauty of the countryside and beach was priceless! I can't recommend this place more- we felt like VIPs, and made us really fall in love with Costa Rica. We'll be back!

Pacifica...

  • 5 of 5
I have traveled to Costa Rica for over 15 years and never stayed in Dominical - I can't believe I waited so long. The jungle is lush (even in the dry season), the Pacific is mesmerizing, and Casa Las Terrazas captures both. The house, and surrounding, beautifully maintained grounds, were very tranquillizing, and it was a pleasure to listen to the jungle life wake up each morning, and begin to bed-in at sunset - pura vida. I especially enjoyed sleeping in the Crow's Nest and listening to the howler monkeys each morning. The infinity pool cannot be described - I spent hours at the end of the infinity staring at the panoramic Pacific and the Whale's Tail - thinking about very little, I am proud to admit. Neil was the quintessential host - he was a wealth of information and a genuine pleasure. If the description and pictures of Casa Las Terrazas interest you, then commit, because no description or photographs could adequately describe this piece of paradise. Your stay will be memorable, relaxing, and you will leave refreshed and rejuvenated. Thank you Jerry and Neil.

Absolutely Amazing!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for an amazing house with breath taking views and tons of character them look no further. This was my first trip to Costa Rica and it definitely will not be my last. This house is close to anything there is to do in Costa Rica. As soon as I walked in the front door I immediately felt like I was at not in someone else's house but in my own home. I can't describe how wonderful this property is so you are going to have to see it for yourself.
