About Tom and Christine

Casa Carmel is managed and represented by Jaguar Property Management, owners Tom and Christine. Casa Carmel is a brand new, lovely home owned by one of our clients, located in the Southern Zone, where the rainforest mountains kiss the sea. Guests can't help but fall in love with this stretch of Pacific coastline, the unspoiled beauty of our local beaches, and the little villages of Dominical, Uvita and Ojochal. Casa Carmel is located 9km south of the surfer village of Dominical, and 9km north of family oriented Uvita.

Tom and Christine purchased this house in 2013

Why Tom and Christine chose Dominical

A message from the owners of Casa Carmel - We have been visiting Costa Rica since we were married over fifteen years ago. We’ve been fortunate to travel to many wonderful places but we keep finding ourselves back in Costa Rica. We simply fell in love with the natural beauty, the wonderful people and it has become our special place to recharge from our hectic lives. During our trips, we have enjoyed exploring new areas but we have always been drawn to the southern pacific coast (often called the Southern Zone, located between Dominical and Ojochal).

What makes this house unique

For years, it was our dream to find a “little piece of heaven” that we could call our own in Costa Rica! We’ve looked at several communities but we finally found our beautiful, gated community...and that was it! We found this sanctuary on the last day of our visit two years ago and fell in love with our lot because we have beautiful views of both the mountains and the pacific coast. Having lived in Florida and Colorado, it’s the best of both worlds! We love the privacy of our home, coffee by the pool as we watch amazing sunrises, our morning walks and we’re also close to numerous beaches, horse riding, surfing, restaurants, local shopping and all sorts of activities. We’ve had a wonderful experience building our home this year and we are delighted to share our special place with you!

We stayed here for 10 days and found the house to be very well equipped with everything we needed. Chris and Tom were great as far as responding to any & all requests that we had while we were there. We've stayed in several of the houses in this area and for the value, this house was the best. We would definitely stay here again.

Welcome to a slice of paradise

  • 5 of 5
An absolutely lovely property, at a great elevation for comfort. Fabulous views and private estate seclusion. The home was as nice as pictured if not more, immaculate and well appointed. This area offers great beaches, and any other vacation amenities you might desire. 4X4 is necessary , but worth it to access the private gated community. Christine, the property manager guided us to the home and made us feel very welcome. She is extremely helpful and efficient at handling any questions or concerns. We spent a week here and couldn't have wished for a nicer retreat.

PERFECT !!!!

  • 5 of 5
A beautiful house ...
a stay of pure happiness
We enjoyed the amazing view, the pool is a plus especially at night (watch the sunset glass in hand and foot in the water)
The beds are super comfortable, the kitchen is perfect
the house was much bigger than the pictures suggest


Get ready ... the road to the house is difficult must be a great 4x4 and an excellent driver!

Chistine is welcoming helpful a wonderful person! It was a privilege to deal with it.
She will advise you excellent restaurant, beach .....


We loved our stay and hope to return very soon!

Casa Carmel is breathtaking, even better in person!

  • 5 of 5
Set on a private hilltop plateau with 180 degree views of ocean, tropical rainforest, valley or mountains from every room. Huge great room, high eucalyptus-paneled cathedral ceilings, wall of windows, and a seamless flow of tiled floor throughout this 1-level home make for a spacious, airy feel. Lying in the master bed you look across forested hills to the coastline and ocean—if you wake up early you can watch a fantastic sunrise from your bed, and at night the sparkling lights of small towns lie below you in the distance and the stars above—just magical! The large master suite is on one side of the house and the 2nd guest room and bath on the other side making for nice separation. We didn’t use the 3rd bedroom, but it would be good for children or adults and has easy access to either bathroom. We loved the outdoor shower and sitting out on the patio whether in the evening to watch the sunset or lounging by the pool during the day. From the house you can take walks along the dirt roads of Costa Verde Estates over what was once farmland (we saw at most 6 cars/day, so the roads act more like hiking trails) or down to the fitness room & tennis court. The setting is so relaxing that we were happy to stay at the house a couple of days rather than go out. Kids would be happy here with plenty of room to play outside—there’s a flat grassy area on one side of the house and a large flat gravel area and patio in front of the house, but bring a few toys—jump rope, ball, etc. as the house is new and not fully supplied yet. Beach towels are provided. We had temperatures in mid-80’s, but were fine without AC. The high ceilings make all the difference, and we slept with the windows open at night to let the cool night air in. The drive up to the house from the main road (Costanera Highway) takes 15 minutes. It’s a fairly steep and windy ride on hard-packed mix of dirt and gravel with some paved sections too. Although slow, it’s a pretty drive as you’re surrounded by lush vegetation and not dangerous at all (no drop-offs). It’s well maintained and has drainage ditches, so seems fine for rainy season too. The wifi worked best late at night or early morning. We brought a Bluetooth speaker with us which came in handy as music/TV was not yet set up. Christine was a pleasure to work with, as was Andres who met us on time exactly as promised to take us up to the house. We recommend Playa Hermosa, horseback ride @ Rancho Merced, and Osa Mtn. canopy tour & animal sanctuary.
