Overview

Dominical Villa Rental Photos and Description

5 bedroom

At Los Portales, life gets a little easier the second you walk through the front door.

This stunning, five-bedroom vacation rental home is quietly nestled in the lavish green hills of Escaleras, one of the most breathtaking locations in the entire southern Pacific zone of Costa Rica and a favorite destination of many travelers to the Dominical and Uvita areas.

With massive jungle-to-ocean views on both the top and bottom floors, an infinity pool ripped right out of the pages of “House Beautiful Magazine” and enough space to accommodate large families or groups, Los Portales is a perfect choice for an unforgettable vacation in paradise.

Located less than a 10-minute drive off the Pan-American Highway and sitting at an elevation of 335 meters (1,100 feet), Los Portales faces due west – directly at the Pacific Ocean below – and is subject to brilliant breezes all day long, from the crisp morning offshore winds filtering through the eastern hills to the afternoon sea breeze that’ll keep you feeling refreshed and relaxed from sun up to sun down.

The home’s top floor features two bedrooms, including an elegant master bedroom, large kitchen and living room areas, as well as a wrap-around patio deck with marvelous ocean views to the north and south, including a direct shot at the famous “Whale’s Tail” of Uvita.

The kitchen area is fully stocked with all modern appliances (dishwasher, stove, oven, microwave and refrigerator), while the living room contains multiple couches, chairs and a large flat-screen television. A bedroom adjacent to the living room has a king bed and an attached bathroom. There is also a washer-dryer unit upstairs. The ceiling on the top floor is more than eight meters high, giving off a charming, airy feel from the moment you step inside.

For sheer luxury, the master bedroom can’t be beat. There are full ocean sightlines from its comfortable king bed and some excellent local artwork on the walls. Furthermore, there’s a jet-powered spa tub in the bathroom with a complete jungle view through glass panels. The master bedroom also features European and American toilets and a private shower.

On the bottom floor, where the 11-meter infinity pool sits, are three additional bedrooms as well as a large, open-air living area with an absolutely gorgeous wood bar that’s perfect for hosting big events or small gatherings.

One of the downstairs bedrooms has its own bathroom and king bed. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom. Of those two rooms, one has a king bed and the other a pair of twin beds. There’s an additional outdoor bathroom near the pool and a shower for rinsing off.

Speaking of the pool, plan to spend a lot of time there. The views are magical and there’s enough space to swim laps for extended exercise. In addition, there are barstools under water so you and your guests can belly up and enjoy a few cocktails when you’re tired from all that swimming.

Los Portales also has a secret wooden patio perched in the trees on its south end. Here, you can sneak into the hammock with a book, escaping the sun and all of life’s little issues, too. Before settling in, it might be best to grab some passion fruit from the trees below and call it an afternoon.

In addition to all the aforementioned amenities, the property features 24-hour live-in security. Driving to the surf in Dominical or shopping stores in Uvita will take less than 20 minutes from the driveway to your final destination.

Trust us, there are many spectacular vacation rentals in the area and Los Portales, in terms of comfort, charm, local flair and versatility stands as one of the premier properties available to tourists from all over the world.

Tranquility and fun in the jungle

  • 5 of 5
Los Portales is an amazingly spacious, comfortable villa with truly stunning ocean views. A peaceful oasis in the middle of the jungle!
We stayed in Los Portales for the first week in December, still officially the rainy season, but were bathed in hot sunshine for most of the time.
This is our third trip to Central America and definitely our most comfortable. The villa catered for all our needs and was very clean and well managed. A fantastically well equipped kitchen (even the kitchen had ocean views) with great communal eating areas, on both terraces - plenty of room for our whole party to eat together. My husband especially loved the smaller tables and chairs all around the property, enabling him to watch the wildlife from all angles whilst enjoying a coffee or drink. Its a fabulous spot for seeing monkeys and birdwatching, especially the toucans and hummingbirds.
We found it a convenient base to go off and explore from, and thanks to the guidance of the Manager, Neil, we had lots of adventures we might not have had otherwise!
We were especially excited about the number of rooms with great views, not only bedrooms but the bathrooms and jacuzzi too. Well thought out accommodation.
The gardens are very well maintained and the pool big enough to have a proper swim.
Thanks for a great stay, we'll be back!

We found Paradise

  • 5 of 5
My family had the pleasure to stay 10 nights at this house and all had a great vacation. The views and surroundings of this villa are jaw dropping and beautiful.
Wildlife around the property is awesome and to wake uo to seeing monkeys and all types of birds was just incredible.
Everyone loved the infinity pool, bar and large lounging areas around it - with ample space to relax, lounge and read a book for everyone.
The property is very private, clean, well maintained and very comfortable. The kitchen is large and has everything you need to make family meals.
The house is in a great location, very close to a vast amount of activities - just ten minutes away. The many amazing local beaches are very close.
We loved to come back o the house and relax around the pool and watch the spectacular sunsets, we even saw some whales one afternoon.
The gardens around the house are well manicured and have all types of tropical flowers, plants and trees.
We had a great experience and highly recommend this property to our family and friends - we will be back next year.
