PARADISE FOUND-OCEAN VIEW-POOL-JUNGLE - WALK TO BEACH

Dominical Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath 4 Sleeps Canto Del Mar Villa #30

ASK FOR LAST MINUTE SPECIAL Look no further, you will love Villa Las Brisa. This elegant villa with two master bedrooms and an ocean view is perched above the Pacific Ocean with a jungle setting right off your patio. Perfect for a small family or two couples using the two identical bedrooms. Singles or a couple receive a ten percent reduction off the normal rates. Walk to the beach (or a two-minute drive where you can park under the palm trees). Or stay home and relax in the private pool. Enjoy all the tropical setting has to offer from this beautifully arranged two-level ocean view villa. For those looking to enjoy the water, the closeness of the sandy beach, Poza Azul waterfall, and your own private pool is a perfect match. Plus there are lots of nearby restaurants, some a short hike away, a grocery store, bank, and much more all within a couple of miles. Surfing, swimming, adventure tours or doing nothing are just a few of the choices you have. Nature enthusiasts will enjoy hiking in the pristine rain forest ridge trail just outside the door and it is a birders paradise. Observe the abundant wildlife while relaxing on the terrace or soak in the beautiful view from the comfort right inside your home. Monkey, toucan, and sloth sightings help pas the time. Our extra large elevated lot provides the most private setting overlooking the ocean. The patio, with its private pool, is bordered by the lush jungle, with resident wildlife including monkeys, sloths, lizards, toucans living in the corridor right next to the patio!! Relax in the pool or on the patio while watching and listening to the ocean waves crashing on the beach below.

Villa Las Brisa is located within the Canto del Mar development consisting of 34 almost identical mountain side villa’s. Each one is a little different due to location, pool or no pool and owner interior preferences. What makes Canto del Mar villa #30 so unique is having a location that takes advantage of the superior ocean view many of the villas share plus being next to a jungle corridor with lots of open space on the uphill side. The villa also enjoys one of the best sites for constant prevailing ocean breezes in the day and mountain breezes at night. The small dunk pool is a great advantage to take a dip right there on the patio. The patio and wrap around deck has bee outfitted with extra outdoor furniture to fit your mood and being able to entertain guests. The inside of the villa has many special touches including custom cabinets for entertainment equipment and storage space. The well-maintained villa has a queen bed on one of the master bedrooms and two twin beds in the other located downstairs. A common room connects the two along with a laundry. The fully functional kitchen is upstairs as you walk in through the front door with an open design which includes the dinning room, living area, kitchen bar with stools so socializing will cooking is easy. A pass through window to the patio makes serving meals outside a breeze. You will soon discover that spending time outside on the covered patio is going to be your favorite spot, day and night, enjoying the ocean and mountain breezes and waiting for the wildlife to show up at any given moment. Parking is convenient right outside the villa and 24 hour security adds to the peaceful and comfortable mood you will experience.

Villa Las Brisa is located a few steps away from the perimeter of the development with easy access to an abandoned 4WD road that goes along the ridge into the primary jungle. You can walk to your heart’s content into the inner valley or even make a large loop that ends up at the beach and circling back without backtracking along the beach and back to the villa. Leave early though so get a lot of shade and have better luck with early morning wildlife sightings.

Traveling to Dominical, the beaches and Uvita where you will find a commercial center of various type stores, is easy from this great location. When you are ready to go exploring the surrounding area, there is no shortage of adventures to do and places to go. A major advantage for selecting Villa Las Brisa and making this a special vacation is access to Dave, Deb and their staff who will be glad to share their knowledge of the area ensuring you have the best time ever.

All of this privacy, while in the comfort of a gated community of villas. The wildlife of Costa Rica awaits; enjoy a walk to our local waterfall and try the rope swing into the natural pool. Ride zip lines through the jungle and catch a glimpse of a sloth. Ride horses through a beautiful farm setting, along the beach at sunset or to one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the country. Travel through mangroves to a lovely island for snorkeling, hiking, swimming, relaxing. And, of course, Dominical has some of the most consistent surf in the world.

For reservations over 30 nights we have a 'Green + Power Option' for people that want to conserve usage of electricity (and save money for themselves and the owner). You can elect to pay an amount that is lowered by the average high bills when the property is occupied. This is a good option if you want to monitor your usage of A/C while you are inside (some people do not use it at all due to the breezes Villa Las Brisa enjoys). If you plan to have it on most of the time then this would end up being about the same either way.

Hope to come back and stay again

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in a different villa than this one in the same unit for 6 nights (we initially sent an inquiry about this one and the owner responded with info on other properties). It's a lovely, safe, quiet little community. The house was very comfortable, providing a barrier to the jungle wildlife, but still providing that indoor/outdoor living feel with lots of sliding doors and windows. The view is truly spectacular. The beds were super comfortable, and the a/c was nice to flip on for sleeping at night. The washer/dryer came in really handy after spending a week doing yoga in the jungle. Security guards were always on site, and when we left really early in the morning, one of them wandered by to check on the noises they were hearing (nice reassurance).

There were a few things I wish I'd known:

The unit was advertised as having two queen beds plus a futon. There was no futon, just a small sofa. I wish that had been communicated more clearly. I'll chalk it up to a miscommunication.

You NEED a 4-wheel drive car to get to this house. The road is steep and rocky. The house is a significant distance from any super markets/restaurants. Driving is not optional, it's a necessity. Another thing I wish had been communicated more clearly. That said, it was fun having a car to be able to explore up and down the coast and I would recommend it to anyone visiting.

The day we arrived, the community was on "river water," so there was no drinkable water. We had to go immediately to a grocery store and stock up on drinking water. They switched back to a drinkable water source within 24-hours, but again on the second to last day of our trip had to switch to river water for a few hours. Kind of an inconvenience, but hey, you're in the jungle. Gotta roll with the punches.

Our unit didn't have a swimming pool so I can't comment on that aspect.

That said, I would go back to stay in this house (or another unit in this development) again, and I hope to. Costa Rica is an amazingly beautiful place, and still so wild. I love the balance of modern comfort and unspoiled nature.

Promises, promises...

  • 3 of 5
This rental does not deliver on what it promises. It is, indeed, a lovely setup with good furnishings, a great view and it is fairly private but when we arrived for our stay one of the 3 air conditioners did not work. The dryer did not work, the TV in the Living Room did not work and the satellite in the two bedrooms did not work (one would assume it wouldn't have worked in the living room either, if the TV worked). Over the course of our 6 night stay the AC was fixed (with no one from the management company there so we felt we had to stay, ruining our plan to go out that morning) and the TV, satellite and dryer never were fixed. No one even came to look at the dryer – first we were told that the previous tenants never told the owner about it and then we were told it was probably the same problem that they had with another dryer so they were waiting on a part. Huh? The first few days the owner emailed us telling us things were going to get fixed and then he didn’t even bother to keep up with that sham. Also, your lease will tell you that every four days a housekeeper will come in to provide basic cleaning of the bathrooms and the floors – what that translates to is someone knocking at the door and handing you a garbage bag full of clean linen and a gallon of bleach. Finally, I have rented many, many houses through Homeaway, VBRO and other sites, and I have never encountered a place that was so cheap with what it provided – we had to buy salt, toilet paper, laundry soap and dish soap. I respect the owners trying to keep the cost to the renter down, but providing adequate supplies would be much appreciated.
