A naturalist paradise and a surfer's dreamland, the South Pacific is preserved by its remoteness, with its secluded beaches, pristine waters and lush Pacific rain forest. This region creates a natural heaven and the ultimate escape or vacation.

A NOTE FROM US TO OUR POTENTIAL RENTERS: Building this home was a dream come true for us. A four year process, from design to finish, has us beaming with pride.

It is truly rewarding to receive all the positive feedback from our rental clients. So many clients have made comments such as: 'Thank you for letting us use your home!' or 'Your house was beyond our greatest expectations!'

We are thankful for the respect that our clients show to this home by leaving it in a condition that makes it hard to believe someone stayed there.

We are also pleased with our staff that prepares the home with floral greetings and maintains the 5 star accommodation standards.

It is not an easy choice to rent a luxury property sight unseen. Each one of our feedback letters represent just that decision. In fact, every rental client since the inception of our rental program has been totally pleased with their decision to rent with us.

We will continue to make this the best rental choice in the area!

Best Regards, Bob

Outstanding Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

I have been traveling to Costa Rica for more than 12 years and have rented many homes and villas that would cover over 80% of the Pacific coast and I must say this rental is very near the top of the list.

In terms of general location, this rental is situated very nicely just outside of Dominical - just 2 minutes from the coastal highway - which if you've ever rented homes in C.R before you already know what a benefit that is. There are several good restaurants to choose from, many within 10 to 15 minutes away and no less than 7 spectacular beaches with the furthest being 30 minutes away and the closest maybe 3 minutes.

In terms of views, this rental will leave you speechless - just an amazing view of the coast. The pictures you see don't come close to the real thing - my son and I fell asleep twice by the pool under the stars after the family enjoyed beautiful sunsets at happy hour. You close enough to hear the waves.

In terms of the house itself, this is one of the cleanest, nicely appointed homes I have ever rented. This is not a typical rental that is has furniture, beds, linens and kitchen appointments for "renters" - this is truly how you would make your own home. The beds are very comfortable, all the bathrooms are first class and the kitchen really does have "everything" you will ever need including a built-in gas grill outside. The layout of the home was done in a thoughtful manner that takes advantage of the incredible views and the attention to details in the design and construction is noticeable throughout.

We found Bob to be the most accommodating host, he is very honest and helpful with area suggestions. I believe he is particular with whom he allows to rent his home, and it shows - I would be too. If your lucky enough to work out some vacation time that works with Bob's schedule - you will not be disappointed. We look forward to a return trip.

Perfect.

  • 5 of 5

The view is breathtaking. The house perfectly designed. We loved the house and pool. What you see on the website is what you get. Plus the kitchen is great, aircon throughout, wifi etc. 24 security an added bonus. Birdlife something else. Toucans in the tree at the pool everyday. We found 2 sloths on the property and heard howlers each morning. 4x4 is essential. We went to several beaches - all easy driving distance. Alex was very helpful. If you want river trip (Macaws, crocs, snakes, monkeys etc , ask Alex).

Worth paying $6/person and park at Playa Ballena. At low tide walk north about 2km and there is a pathway to a perfect unspoilt beach. Playa Tortugo also unspoilt if you want a long peaceful walk (starts as a lagoon so waves too far out for surfing). The Nauyaca waterfalls are worth going to. All adverts are for a breakfast/lunch/ride a horse combo yet we simply drove up the road, paid entrance and hiked up there. If you get to the falls around midday the tour will be there which was helpful as they have guys helping people swim to the falls, climb up and jump in. We had picnic lunch at the upper falls. (Don't go to the local waterfall in Dominicalita - the only place where car security is an issue and there are better things to do.

Restaurant La Parcela below the house has great views plus a nice viewpoint over Playa Dominicalita and their Tuna Tartare is superb. Good coffee at Mono Congo. We bought fresh fish just below the house and BBQ in the evenings - pargo, snapper and mahimahi (Turn south on highway and its a few 100m on left). Shopped mostly at supermarkets in Uvita.

We will come again. Thanks again. Guy, Robyn and family

Amazing girls trip in an amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

This property was even more spectacular than the photos. The home is comfortable and extremely well appointed with any and all equipment you could need for a vacation home. We planned this trip as a celebration of turning 40 for several lifelong friends and it couldn't have been more perfect!

The location of the home while a little hard to get to at first (definitely need 4x4) is perfect. It is enough off the beaten path (highway) to feel secluded with plenty of peace and quiet but close enough to easily get to surrounding areas for activities and very safe. We went on an ATV tour, a river site seeing tour, spent time at the beach and went paragliding off the mountain near by all within an hour or less from the home.

The time we spent at the home was dominated by the amazing pool. We were in it or next to it as much as possible. The view from the pool is breathtaking.

The only thing I would do differently next time (and we do plan to go back!) is take more advantage of the services Alex can provide as the concierge. We rented and drove 2 vehicles from San Jose, this was stressful and time consuming. Alex could have arranged for a transfer flights to Manuel Antonio and a local rental car which would have saved us hours on the road. He also has lots of ideas and contacts for activities and restaurants so take the time to plan ahead and benefit from his knowledge.

I highly recommend this property, you will not be disappointed.

BEYOND our wildest DREAMS

  • 5 of 5

The absolutely stunning view in the listing first captured our attention and then our imagination.

Once there, the early morning mist rising from the waves, the clouds coming down from the mountains and the fragrant aroma of the Ylang-Ylang blossoms in late afternoon all contributed towards an amazing, almost dreamlike, tropical respite. We were absolutely captivated.

Read the reviews, we found them true. The villa is well designed and maintained with great attention to detail. One of my favorite rooms was the large kitchen; located in a two-story atrium filled with natural light, it also benefits from the gorgeous “where the mountains meet the sea” view.

We turned off the A.C. and opened up the villa during the day to enjoy the ocean breezes, tropical bird songs and sounds of the waves below.

When we did venture out, we enjoyed horseback riding to beautiful water falls, searching for our perfect beach and watching the paragliders catch the thermals above the mountains. We also experienced outstanding Costa Rica deep sea fishing and only wished we had done this earlier in our trip so we could enjoy more of our fresh catch!

Professional concierge services and housekeeping were included. Quite honestly, the level of accommodations and services often caused us to forget beautiful Costa Rica is still considered a third world country.

We’ve enjoyed travels to French Polynesia, Maui, Kauai and the Fiji islands in the past few years, but Suenos Pacificos, Spanish for Pacific Dreams, is the place we most hope to visit again. Sigh…did we mention the view?

Absolutely STUNNING!!

  • 5 of 5

I could not be more pleased with my stay at Suenos Pacificos!!! Aside from the natural and breathtaking views from sun up to sun down, every detail of the home and aid to our stay was meticulously thought out. The owner was more than helpful in every aspect; we had planned an assortment of adventures based on his recommendations and not one failed to exceed our expectations! The town of Dominical has something for everyone and the people are extremely friendly. You will not want to leave this place, it is hands down the most wonderful time I have ever had on a vacation and I cannot wait to go back!!

This home is even more beautiful than we expected!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience at this home in Domincal was phenomenal, we cannot wait to go back! Not only is the home, property, and view absolutely breathtaking, the service and hospitality was exceptional. We had just one issue of the a/c going out in one bedroom, but the owner and concierge took immediate action and had the unit replaced within the next day.

The house is perfectly located, easy to access off the main highway and a short drive to many restaurants and beaches.

Our only regret was not staying longer!
