PRIVATE TROPICAL PARADISE- CASA TANGLEWOOD

Dominical House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms main house + Detached 2 bedroom Villa, 4 Baths (Sleeps 8-13)

Enjoy some of the most amazing sunsets that Costa Rica has to offer from the pool deck. The breathtaking ocean view and surrounding rain forest make this the perfect place to “just be” and take in the beauty and tranquility of this incredible country. The main house features 3500 square feet with all the modern amenities along with the privacy of a gated private residence. To put the icing on the cake there is also an 1100 square foot guest house fully self contained.

At an elevation of 950 feet, it receives a constant ocean breeze. Casa Tanglewood has daily visits from toucans, colorful parrots and a myriad of other birds. You can enjoy their song while you sit under the palapas enjoying a glass of wine while you wait for dinner.

Looking out to the ocean from the kitchen are double patio doors leading to the large infinity edge swimming pool. Under the palapas is a large informal sitting area with a dining table for 8. Around the large infinity pool there are chaise lounges and sun tanning area. This offers the ideal location... the Pacific Ocean straight in front of you with year around sunsets and on either side the seclusion of the rain forest. One of my favorite things to do is have an early morning coffee in the courtyard next to the pepper bush, cinnamon tree and the orchids.

This beautiful Spanish style house is also accompanied by a quaint Villa with king size bed, single pull out sofa, living area, kitchen, outdoor seating area overlooking the valley, the lower floor has a queen sized pull out hideaway bed and two twin beds. Each floor has a washroom and there is even an outdoor shower on the lower floor.

Casa Tanglewood was purchased by myself and a couple of friends in 2010 to fulfill a lifelong dream of providing an amazing home for travellers to enjoy.

Welcome and please enjoy my home!

With the help of some good friends I purchased Casa Tanglewood in January of 2010.

A successful rancher, published children’s author, speaker and businesswoman, I like to bring unique ideas, perspectives and humour on everything from ranching, women in business, running a successful Service Organization, to how to run a successful vacation property.

My interests do not stop there. As president and CEO of Tierra Diosa Consulting I believe that it is important to contribute to society and give back. Working with Habitat for Humanity, myself and my team donate our time to model and label energy efficient Habitat homes in Calgary, Alberta Canada.

I am also involved through Samaritans Purse with Casa Luz, a home in San Jose, Costa Rica, for girls that have been exploited and abused by providing an educational fund for them. Gael believes that education for women and girls is the key to successful and thriving communities and families.

The first time I saw Casa Tanglewood, I knew it was a special and magical place. From the view of the ocean, mountains and jungle to the beautiful pool and 2 homes. As I sat with my feet in the pool watching a toucan and the dragonflies that were on my arm, I knew this place was “the one”. A place where you could “just be”. A place to rejuvenate the spirit and rest a busy mind. Casa Tanglewood is a place of calm and peace in a noisy and hectic world.

Welcome to my home and “just be”!

Gael Cooper!!

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

This property is outstanding in every aspect. The individual photos do not do justice to the synergy of the whole. The listing description was accurate. The property was very well maintained and the furniture is very comfotable. The manager/concierge was very accommodating and helpful. I would highly recommend this property to friends and family as well as return there myself. Because it is so private, the road to the property, which requires 4-wheel drive, was a bit intimidating the first couple of days. After that it was no problem. It is a 15 - 20 minute drive to the beach in Dominical yet don't let that sway you not to stay there. It is well worth the drive for the privacy, view and sheer beauty of the natural surroundings. The only item the house did not have that we picked up was a cooler. I would recommend Osa Canopy Tours Tours and Don Lulo's Nauyaca waterfalls tours on horseback. Wishing you a wonderful vacation.

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with my family. It was very comfortable and met our needs well. We were able to relax out on the patio and look at the amazing sunset in the evenings and watch the Toucan's in the tree just past the swimming pool. In the early mornings our daughter went bird watching and found many of the Costa RIcan birds along the road. The house was equipped with a very nice kitchen in which we were able to cook several of our meals at the house. We also had a great time visiting other local restaurants as well. I would recommend this home to anyone looking to get away from it all, relax, swim or just read a good book. With three bedrooms and separate bathrooms it was easy for our entire family to feel comfortable. Daveed and his staff at Caldwell Banker were also very helpful in setting up some excursions for us through-out the week as well as dinner reservations and great recommendation in the area. Gael Cooper the owner also took time to call and set-up a spa afternoon for my daughter and I in Manuel Antonio. Thank you for sharing your home with my family.
Take care Gael. Thanks again for the lovely visit to Costa Rica.

A Wonderful Weekend at Casa Tanglewood

  • Submitted: Jun 20, 2012

We spent a wonderful weekend at Casa Tanglewood. Nestled in the forest with its fantastic views over the beautiful Costa Rican beach we sat in the infinity pool sipping cocktails and barbecuing fresh fish bought from local fisherman whilst soaking up the view and the sun. What a spectacular holiday! The house was wonderfully spacious with a great view from the upstairs porch over the mountains and the sea. A beautiful stroll through the forest on a well maintained trail leads to the guest quarters en route we saw toucans and picked lemons from the trees. Thank you Casa Tanglewood for some great memories and we would love to come again!!!!

I love this house!

  • Submitted: Jun 12, 2012

Casa Tanglewood is a great spot. I have stayed there several times- once on a girls weekend, once with my kids and once with an extended family group. Each and every time, we end up spending more time at the house that we expect because once you are in it, you never want to leave! The views are spectacular, and the house is very well laid out.I love the rancho area. We cooked a lot of meals and enjoyed them in the rancho at the huge dining table. The kids LOVED the pool area ( as did the adults!) and spent the whole time outside running around. I highly recommend this property for every type of group.Dominical is only a 10-15 minute drive away, so there is easy access to beaches and restaurants. There is a corner store right at the entrance to the neighborhood, which was very convenient for picking last minute items. The house layout was great for my older parents- the master is on the main floor, very easy for them. I look forward to staying at Tanglewood many more times in the future!

I cannot recommend this house enough!

  • Submitted: May 29, 2012

I have just had the pleasure of staying at Casa Tanglewood. The house is
incredible, and the setting is breathtaking. I have never stayed in such an
elegant yet welcoming house. It really is a very special place and makes me
smile just thinking about it. The initial plan was to go to the nearby
beaches, waterfalls, and national parks, but we found that we were just so
relaxed and happy in the house that we stayed there most of the time. Our
days started by eating breakfast outside enjoying a dramatic view of the
ocean and mountains, joined by a few little friends...humming birds and
colourful frogs! Afternoons were spent in the infinity pool enjoying the
sun and the tranquility. Evenings were spent preparing dinner in the
spacious, fully equipped kitchen, followed by cocktails made with fruit
picked from the trees in the garden. All family and friends comfortably
enjoyed films in the living room with surround sound. All details of the
house have been thoroughly thought through; everything you could want is
there. The gardens are beautifully landscaped. Upon arriving at the
property we spent a lot of time gasping at its beauty. I can't do the
house justice with words, seeing is believing!

My daughter who is not even one year old knew she was somewhere special, she
was ecstatic from the moment we arrived to the moment we left.

I cannot recommend this house enough!

Thank you for an amazing holiday Casa Tanglewood!

Kind Regards,
Emer Harkin
