Perfection

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!

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!

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.

Awesome Vacation

We have traveled quite a bit but this was one of our best vacations ever. The house was amazing and it was just like how it was described in the website. The kitchen had all the amenities that we needed. We all loved the infinity pool and of course that amazing view of the Pacific Ocean. Seeing Whale's Tail from the house provoked our need to go see it in person. It took us a time or two to find it but when we did it was worth the time. We saw toucan's everyday flying around the area of the house and even a couple very up close by the pool. We did not see any howler monkeys but we did hear them.
We had a varying range of ages and interests in our group of seven but we all found many things that we wanted to do and accomplished them. I would strongly suggest the waterfall tour, it was amazing but the water was freezing but definelty worth it. I am recovering from back surgery and did not want to risk the horse ride but they offered a pick up ride instead. That worked out great for all of us, it had padded benches in the bed so it was comfortable. This tour comes with breakfast and lunch, both of the meals were really good. For the price it was a real deal. Of course some of our group did the zip line through the rain forest and they all came back with many stories. Everyone enjoyed that but they did say if you are afraid of heights it may not be for you. We loved all the mom & pop restaurants along the road sides, we never had a bad meal. We did go into Dominical one evening and had tapas at Confusione Tapas Restaurant, it was wonderful.

We all agreed when we return to this amazing area and property we need to plan a two week vacation, one week was not enough.

Neil was great with arranging all the tours we wanted and helping us navigate the area. He even helped to arrange a wedding for us at the house. We have the most wonderful pictures from the wedding. The ceremony was held under the tiki hut and our bouquets were made by a local woman from flowers and greenery on the property.

This definelty will not be a trip any one of us will ever forget. Thanks so much to Jerry, Theresa and Neil for a perfect vacation.

What a beautiful place to spend seven wonderful, peaceful, and relaxing, days! The views were incaparable, the house was so comfortable, and the sunsets, sunrises, and stars of night were all breathtaking! If I ever imagined what heaven could be like, I now have a distinct, and visual, idea! I loved gettiing up in the early morning, watching the colors of the sunrise flood the skies, and feeling the clean and fragranced breeze. As the day brightened, waiting for the toucans to come for their breakfast in the palm trees behind the house was pure relaxation! Sunsets are equally beautiful, whether they are viewed from the Playa Domenical, or from the comfort of the house! Our family of six adults enjoyed going to Playa Uvita and Marino Balleno Park; to Hacienda Baru where some of us enjoyed zip-lining; to Manuel Antonio Natural Park to view sloths, local birds and monkeys, Costa Rican frogs, and huge blue morpho butterflies; and to Isla de Cano where we scuba dived, hiked, and even got some deep sea fishing in! We loved eating at the local restaurants, and every meal was good! Just remember, when you are in Costa Rica, time is suspended, and eating a lunch or dinner can take several hours! "Pura Vita" suggests that to savor every day, you must take your time! Most of all, we enjoyed interacting with the people of Costa Rica who are generous, helpful, lovely, and always friendly! Neil was invaluable in making recommendations from eateries to the different types of tours available in the area. Coming to Costa Rica, and to Casa las Terraza, will always be a memory that we will cherish, and will remain with us for a long, long time! Thank you, Jerry and Theresa, for allowing us to share your wonderful home!
