AN AFFORDABLE PRIVATE VILLA!! POOL - CLOSE TO BEACHES!

Dominical Villa Rental Photos and Description

PERFECT FOR COUPLES, FRIENDS & FAMILIES!

You will absolutely love the PRIVATE location of CASA COCO nestled at the edge of the jungle with an awesome mountain backdrop, filtered ocean views, and only 500 meters from the Pacific Ocean. Situated on just over 2 acres your villa is completely private without being isolated and only a short 2 minute drive to two beaches, Playa Puerto Nuevo and Playa Hermosa, and a few minutes to all amenities.

The 1.5 story, 2 BR/2.5 BA Bali inspired contemporary designed house has all the features of home. The main entrance leads to the great room featuring 20 ft (6 m) vaulted ceilings surrounded by 3 walls of picture windows allowing for incredible panoramic jungle and mountain views. While encompassing the living, dining, and kitchen areas, the great room space allows you to cook in your FULLY EQUIPPED kitchen, entertain and spend time together all at once. The villa has a 32' flat screen TV, Satellite TV, and DVD. A guest bath is located on the first floor along with your master bedroom with en suite bath and queen bed. Both the great room and master bedroom lead to the spacious covered terrace with lots of seating areas and surrounded by beautifully manicured gardens - a perfect place to relax and enjoy a swim in the pool.

The guest bedroom with en suite bath is located below the main floor and features its own private entrance, a king bed that can be converted 2 single beds; and a private covered patio. Each of the bedrooms include a pillow top mattress; quality bedding; air conditioning; ceiling fan; IPOD docking system; safe and wireless internet.

Enjoy a cup of Costa Rican coffee poolside under the covered terrace, or kick back in the late afternoon with a margarita while listening to the sounds of the ocean surf and watching toucans and parrots fly over CASA COCO. Keep your eyes open and camera ready for a troop of howler monkeys, or white-faced capuchins, making their appearance known in the nearby tree canopy.

The Dominical - Uvita - Ojochal area is known as the ''COSTA BALLENA' (Whale Coast) of the Southern Pacific Zone and offers an abundance of tours and activities from the eco minded to the adrenalin adventurer to the laid-back beachcomber. There really is something for everyone to enjoy from zip lining above the jungle canopy; ATV tours high in the mountains of Uvita; repelling waterfalls; surf lessons, sport fishing; whale watching; bird watching; walking one of the many beautiful beaches; and guided or self-guided tours through the nature trails at Hacienda Baru National Wildlife Refugee.

The area has a great selection of restaurants ranging from inexpensive local sodas to fine dining and everything in-between. Don't forget to stop by the local fishmonger for a great selection of sea bass, red snapper, shrimp or tuna. Several grocery stores and banks are located nearby.

Your private villa - CASA COCO is perfectly located mid-way between the popular surfing destination of Playa Dominical and our small commercial center of Uvita, home to the popular Ballena National Marine Park named after the Humpback Whales that migrate there each year between December and April.

We have lived in Dominical for 12 years and manage our own vacation rental ensuring you peace of mind during your stay at CASA COCO. We will be happy to assist you in setting up any activities or tours during your stay, or help you in any way to make your vacation at CASA COCO a memorable one!

Hasta Pronto!

Serenity in the jungle

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Casa Coco for nine days in which time we fell in love with it.Beautiful
Clean functional home with everything we could need.The toucans were a treat with
Their comical beaks and their conversations with each other.The capuchin monkeys
Made an appearance one day nearby in the forest.At night the stars and constellations
Covered every inch of sky.Breathtaking!
Our luggage did not appear for two days and Claire and Leo were in touch with the
Delivery people and made sure we knew where to pick it up in town.They could't have
Been more pleasant and helpful.I miss the house already!I would go back tomorrow.

Perfection at Casa Coco!

  • 5 of 5
My husband & I just returned from an 8 day stay at Casa Coco & can't wait to go back! Everything about the place is amazing, from the house itself to the location (near so many amazing things) to the warmth & hospitality of the owners Claire & Leo. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation.

The house is a very easy drive from San Jose (about 3 hours). Even though we chose to get a GPS for the drive, we really didn't need it thanks to Claire's point by point directions to the house. The house is located near a main access road that you can take to get to most places in the Dominical-Uvita area, so a GPS really isn't necessary if you are staying in the area. We also took Claire's recommendation to stop for groceries along the way to the house (about halfway from the airport to the house), which was great because we arrived with some basic items to get us started. And we couldn't believe all of the kitchen appliances that were at the house (blenders, pots, pans, grill etc, etc). The house really had everything you could need to cook at home for every meal while you're there.

The house is close to many beautiful beaches. And you can find out about all of them in the detailed book that they have at the house. It lists beaches, area activities, restaurants, etc. All you need to know for a great vacation can be found in the book.

The house itself is amazing. One of the most beautiful we've ever stayed. It's well decorated, comfortable and has the most incredible view. The pool is AMAZING! Claire & Leo have clearly gone to great lengths to build and maintain a comfortable, beautiful and functional home.

We haven't been to other parts of Costa Rica, so we don't have a good comparison, but I can't imagine a better place to stay than in the area where we were. Gorgeous weather every day, amazing beaches that were never very crowded, a very laid back vibe and lots to do, without feeling overwhelmed by must-do activities.

A special note about the owners of the house, Claire and Leo. This was our first time using VRBO for a vacation rental, and we could only be so lucky to have a repeat of this experience. From the beginning, Claire was very responsive, answering our calls & emails quickly and thoroughly. She offered a car rental recommendation that turned out to be fantastic. They were there to greet us when we arrived and answered all of our questions during the week. You can't go wrong with Casa Coco! Thanks Claire & Leo for an amazing week!!

Amazing Piece of Paradise

  • 5 of 5
This was the most memorable vacation we have ever experienced as a family. We were awe-struck when we walked in the door. Sensory overload comes to mind. The walls of windows bring the vibrant jungle feel inside while the interior decor is cool and soothing.

We were thoughtfully welcomed with a bowl of fresh fruit, popcorn, wine, and coffee. The house is located in a private jungle setting with glimpses of the ocean. There is not another house in sight. If you want a relaxing private vacation then Casa De Coco is for you. Leo and Claire perfectly designed a contemporary home with durability and functionality. They also provided a guidebook of local attractions and restaurants. We especially enjoyed dining at La Percela which offers stunning sunset views and excellent food.

We couldn't have been more pleased with this rental. The entire experience far exceeded our expectations.

On a side note, if you spend time near San Jose I would highly recommend going to La Paz Waterfall. It is worth the drive and the buffet was phenomenal.

Immaculate Modern Home

  • 5 of 5
When we stepped into Casa Coco we were amazed by the huge open space with windows on three sides. The foyer, living room, dining room and kitchen flow into each other, so that it's bright and airy in feeling. The kitchen is well equipped and even has a little ocean view. Plus, there's the added bonus of a large laundry room.

There is a comfortable desk area for computer work and the internet speed is excellent.

We really enjoyed the warm pool several times a day and used the floats for sunbathing. The garden area surrounding the pool is beautifully landscaped with different sizes, textures, and colors of plants and palms.

One day while by the pool we were entertained by a troop of capuchin monkeys with several babies. They moved around the property in the tree canopy for over two hours. Plus we saw a pair of toucans that same afternoon!

The property is private, immaculate, and has everything you need for an enjoyable stay.

truly amazing... way beyond our expectations!

  • 5 of 5
I researched Costa Rica for over 3 months before deciding on where to stay! (yes I was a little compulsive...) This was our favorite private home rental. Claire and Leo you really made it a wonderful experience for us: 1) beautiful home 2) great pool 3) great recommendations of restaurants and what to do 4) strong wi-fi connection even up in rain-forest 5) everything we would EVER need in kitchen - cooking was a JOY!! 6) comfortable bed 7) great location 8) surround sound stereo!?! :) ...and the list goes on. Its always great to go somewhere that far exceeds your expectations...the pictures don't do it justice! We can't wait to come back. Best Nancy & Mike

It really was PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
I know it is hard to decide on places in Costa Rica because so many places have good reviews. We looked for weeks and when we finally chose Casa Coco, we felt as if we were gambling. When we arrived, it was truly an amazing experience. It wasn't a gamble at all.

LOCATION: The three hour drive from the airport was like being on an episode of the Amazing Race. Don't worry. Claire's step by step directions were excellent. The roads were smooth and easily travelled. Claire provides excellent information on local hot spots and activities in the area. There were too many to do in five days. There are four different types of beaches and eateries within 5-10 minutes drive. We usually don't like to drive on our trips, but it is necessary since there are no buildings allowed near the beach. When you see it, you will be very appreciative of this law. We did hike down to the closest beach. It was rocky and more of an ecological treasure than a swimming hole. The area is very quiet. It's not built up and nowhere in our experience did it feel like a resort land or tourist area. The locals were very friendly and kind to us.

QUALITY: When we arrived, Claire and Leo greeted us with warmth and excitement. The house was better than the pictures. It was the highest quality of a new home with incredible views of the ocean and the mountains. Every night we watched the family of toucans sit (and talk) on the tree overlooking the ocean. We saw and heard howler monkeys and ghost face monkeys our last two days. A lot of our trip was spent just sitting in and by the pool enjoying the view. The kitchen allowed us to cook whatever we wanted. We made the pact to only eat out once a day. My husband who is usually pretty picky looked at me and said, "You did good, babe! This place is gorgeous!"

OVERALL: Claire and Leo are good people. They offer their assistance a phone call away and they give you privacy. I believed that they were very honest, kind and generous. Make sure you follow their advice.(get the 4 wheel drive rent-a-car) They are speaking from experience.

If you are looking for a resort, hotel or tourist location, this is not the place for you. If you want to feel like a local in an amazing tropical getaway, this is it! Cool local bars too!

P.S. I'm doing this out of huge respect for the owners. I really don't want to tell everyone because we feel like we found something amazing and we want to have it available for us in the future.
