Situated on a hilltop, with 360 degree views of the ocean, mountains and 40 km across the Terraba valley, this brand new villa is jaw-dropping.
In the South West corner of Costa Rica, where the mountains meet the sea, at an altitude of 1,400 feet, this area is considered the best combination of scenic beauty, with convenience and facilities.
The villa has a large living area, with huge windows showing off the amazing panoramic views. There is a large patio separating the living area from the pool, and it is here that you will spend your time. There is a large outside dining area. The kitchen is large and modern, and there is a second outside kitchen with barbecue.
The altitude means that it is cooler, there is always a breeze, yet in 15 minutes you can be on a secluded beach.
There are walks in the rain forest, mountains hikes, rappelling down waterfalls, zip lining, or just plain sitting with a drink in hand, in awe
Nearby facilities.: There is a very scenic 7 km. drive to the main road. The road is sometimes steep, and 4 wheel drive is a must. It passes a waterfall, and a few other houses. Once down to the main road, there are many fine restaurants, several beaches, a brand new hospital, a small airport, several supermarkets, drug stores, hardware stores, doctors office, beauty salon and other facilities
Nigel gives us a great review, and he describes all the activities that are available - rather better that I did. Most of our guests enjoy the tranquility, and the remoteness balanced with the wildlife, and the proximity to civilization - restaurants and stores.
Running South from Dominical, the coastal road is very scenic offering views of sea and beaches on one side, and towering mountains on the other. This is the area where the mountains meet the sea.
Passing through Uvita (where we grocery shop), then past Ojochal, another 5 Km and you come to the tiny hamlet of Coronado. Here you turn Eastward, and start the 7 km road to Crow`s Nest. This is where you engage your 4 wheel drive, and follow the road. There are not any real turnings, just a few driveways, and you climb up and up, eventually coming to `Crow`s Nest`on the left. The winding driveway will bring you to the villa, and the view is then jaw-dropping.
Other Activities: Rappelling, Hiking, Bird watching, horse back riding, kayaking, Rain forest hike, zip lining., kayaking.
Golf: There is a new golf course, currently 9 holes, soon to be 18.. There is a charge per round.
