San Jose Costa Rica


  • 5 of 5

We loved out stay at Tierra Verde! House and views are better than the pictures. Breathtaking views, wildlife, nice gardens and very private. The owner is very attentive and polite. He answers all your concerns and goes all the way to make sure you have what you need.

The house is clean, well taken care of, a fully equipped kitchen, clean pool, a very comfy ranch, wireless internet, and linens.

The open space kitchen allows you to be part of the fun while cooking.

Wildlife is all around, birds, sloths, monkeys. Amazing!

There’s a lot to do around like hiking, visiting the waterfalls, the beaches, surfing, take the tours to see whales or dolphin(Seasonal).

We are looking forward to our next visit!

Paradise in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

We had viewed the pictures of Tierra Verde quite a few times while surviving winter and waiting for our February getaway. The actual house and views exceeded our expectations. The house is large and spacious. The indoor/outdoor living areas blend seamlessly. It is tastefully decorated and the furniture is stylish AND comfortable. There are outstanding views from almost all rooms. Everything you need is provided.

The kitchen is modern and If you decide to do some cooking there some

spices and oils available.

The bedrooms are on the lower level and all have access to the outside living areas. They are bright and have views of the ocean or the pool.There are 3 bedrooms with queen beds and plenty of closet space. There are 2 bathrooms on this level. One is ensuite with the largest bedroom and the other is smaller and available to the other 2 bedrooms. The washer and dryer are on this level also.

The top floor has the kitchen , dining and living area. There is a half bath and another room with twin beds and a wonderful balcony with hammock.

There some neighbors but you see no one and a have a very private house and yard.

The pool area was wonderful. There is plenty of shade to get out of the hot Costa Rican sun. Lots of place to enjoy outdoor dining.

This was our 3rd trip to Costa Rica, but we had never been to Dominical before. It was a lush beautiful area without crowds. My grandchildren enjoyed surf lessons all week,( Dominicalito Beach with Sunset surf.) We did some other exploring( waterfalls, river rafting , and Hacienda Baru) but they( the grandchildren) were content just to enjoy the pool. Grammy's favorite spot was the couch on the upper outdoor balcony. The views and the breeze wonderful.

We did get to see toucans from our balcony, and of course the howlers seranaded us every morning.

I would recommend this house to any large groups. You will never feel crowded. Peter , the owner, has a nearby manager. Barbara is available if you have any problems. So you are not completely on your own.

We all can't live in paradise, but we can rent it.

Loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

We loved out stay at Terre Verde! We would return here for sure! The house is much better than the photos. Breathtaking views, very private, lots of space, wonderful pool, fully equipped kitchen, wireless internet access and wildlife all around you! We saw toucans and slothes almost every day right there from our balcony or by the pool. You will definitely need a four wheel drive to get up the steep, long dirt road but it’s well worth the drive.

We cooked most evenings since the kitchen was wonderful. We found a great local place to buy seafood right at someone’s home in town. Once you are in town follow the dirt road along the river, under the bridge and turn right after a hotel. You will see a sign for Pescatoria. The seafood was amazing, local, fresh and inexpensive. If you can’t find it ask at one of the small grocery stores in town because they are the ones that told us about it.

We went to three beautiful waterfalls which were all easy to get to without much hiking - Pozo Azul Waterfalls in Dominical, Uvita Waterfall and a private waterfalls on a farm near the Talapia farms in Ojochal.

Our favorite beach was Playa Ventanas, windows beach which gets its name from the sea caves that during high tide blow out gusts of air and water. It was amazing. I think at low tide you can even go into the caves.

The town of Dominical was very low key and fun. Don’t except anything fancy here it’s very beachy, hippy and relaxed just what we were looking for. We ate lunch at Tortilla Flats which is a must do.

Tried surfing but the waves were huge. It was fun to watch all the experiences surfers though. There was a nice open restaurant at the end of the strip on the beach that we had breakfast at which was very good.

In Uvita we found a wonderful bakery at the end of our trip. Wish we would have known about it earlier as the empanada were wonderful as well as the pastries and bread.

Loved Dominical but especially loved our stay at Terre Verde!

Great Experience at Tierre Verde

  • 5 of 5

The owner of this property had given us plenty of information prior to arriving in San Jose Costa Rica - many restaurant recommendations - things to do in the Dominical area, driving directions, and information about the house. We arrived in San Jose on April 8th but did not make it to the house until the evening of the 9th due to rental car issues. Once we arrived at the house we found it to be very nice. I have stayed in the same area on previous visits to Costa Rica and found this house to be very well suited for a week or longer stay. Great views inside and outside, the pool area is clean, the house has a great floor plan with 3 bedrooms down stairs and 1 bedroom up stairs. the kitchen is open to the dining area and the living area. Nice furniture around the pool with great views. I will definitely stay here again.

Beautiful place to be

  • 5 of 5

I love this place, the house and surroundings are so beautiful. It is located in the middle of nature with this view on the ocean and the amazing sunsets. I definitely would like to go there once more. The house is beautifully furnished and very clean. The swimming pool is very clean and you surely can do your exercise out there. Well as you can read I am enthousiastic and I hope will be so as well whenever you stay there.

Pura Vida

  • 5 of 5

The villa Tierra Vierde is a very nice house in the hills of Escalares. It is bigger then you can see on the photo's. It has 4 nice bedrooms with 3 toilets and 2 bathrooms, very large living with a nice terras overlooking the jungle and the ocean. The swimmingpool is lovely. And, very important: there is well equipped kitchen!!!! The whole place is good maintained. You can stay with your family or some couples and also having your privacy.

You can see the toucans, monkeys (They will wake you up in the morning) and a lot of other animals.

The villa is nearby Casi el Cielo (almost heaven) The owner (Barbara) is very nice and gives you good information. She can provide very nice meals (tried a few times and I loved it).

For shopping you can go to Uvita or for more things to San Isidro.

Beaches are very beautiful and romantic! There are also a lot of things to do in this area

Dominical is a nice little town where is no bad tourisme.

There are a lot of nice restaurants in the aera. I found Thai, Sushi, Indonesian, Iran, Italian and a lot of good CR-restaurants.



Muchas gracias Cora!
