Beautiful new house at the Rain Forest Preserve just above Dominical, walking distance beach, surfing, tours, Dominical.
Perfect for 2 couples to share as the upper and lower levels have separate entrances, bathrooms, etc and the luxury tent platform provides a 3rd living space. Upper & lower levels have setups for over 100 free movies & 5000 songs in the IMAC and AppleTVs.
House is close to paragliding, waterfalls birdwatching, lot's of wildlife in the Preserve. GREAT For one or two families with kids to enjoy! House has 1 master bedroom upstairs with bath, full kitchen, incredible views; separate downstairs bedroom with 1 queen and 1 single bed, bath and kitchenette area with microwave, 2-burner range-top & cooler.
Private location nestled in 5 acres of jungle, with huge views of the 200-acre Rain Forrest canopy and a peek of the ocean beyond. Three-sided wrap-around deck lets you walk from your view of the jungle canopy and ocean to the mountain view on the other side.
Enjoy bird-watching, the beach, fantastic restaurants, day excursions. Because it is private, we offer on-site amenities like catered meals, massage (when masseuse is in residence, or check in with Julie Smith down at the beach for a great private massage), and short jungle tours
With luggage, you will need a 4wd to access the property or use 4wd taxi. There is not a traditional swimming pool next to the house, but you can take a short hike within the preserve and enjoy a natural shower beneath our 30 foot waterfall.
Do you love Waterfalls? Horseback riding?: One of the biggest waterfalls in the southern zone is located just up the highway and has an amazing horseback/hiking tour for only $60. Also, horseback riding along the beach is just down the road off the Costanera highway at Mercedes.

We have great 3G cell reception at the house, and provide a backup cell phone for use at the house only. Currently, high speed internet access is only available down the hill at the Coldwell Banker across the street or in town. Working on getting more internet access. Ask us for details.
I fell so in love with this country that I mortgaged my house here in Colorado to buy the land at the Rainforest Preserve in 2006, and then I also bought a reforestation farm about 30 min. from the Preserve. I built the house there in December 2011.
Canopy Vista is up the mountain 6 switchbacks, and this affords greater safety away from the public beach, but is still only a 15-20 minute walk down to the famous Dominical surf beach.(It's also cooler with a nice breeze a few hundred feet up.) There are lots of places to walk within the Preserve, including the big ocean overlook ('the Miradore'), and our community orchard. The house has incredible views of the Preserve on 3 sides and a small view of the ocean. The house is new as of 2011, has lots of windows and a great ocean breeze.
Easy access to the beach, the town of Dominical, and all of the local attractions. Easy to bird-watch or see butterflies right from the house. Paraglide launchplace nearby. Big tent available for extra guests or kids.
