|Minimum Stay||1 - 3 nights|
This ocean-view villa has breathtaking views of the ocean to the front, and the lush rainforest to the rear and sides. Its name is Canto Del Mar (Song of the Sea, Ridge of the Sea) because you can hear the roar of the ocean every night as the waves rush in. It is located at the very end of a beautiful ridge jutting out into the sea, about 300 feet above the ocean, so the home is far cooler and breezier than anything below. Just minutes from the beach! Less than five-minute drive from beach access points to about five beautiful unspoiled beaches, each with its unique character, some with sea caves. This is a newly constructed, spacious two-story furnished home, where you and your friends/family can bask in the luxury of having your own PRIVATE swimming pool, large covered and uncovered patio areas, and covered balcony. No neighbors in sight! Beautiful ocean views from top and bottom floors and from pool. (home is nearly 3000 square feet, plus 1000 sf patio space).
Convenient and Secluded!: When you’re at the house, at the end of Los Loros ridge, surrounded by toucans, parrots, hawks, eagles and monkeys, you will be in the middle of secluded rainforest, with scarcely any civilization in view. As you watch the wildlife, and see and listen to the breaking surf, you will feel like you are hundreds of miles away from everything.
However, this is a great, convenient location, less than one km off of Costanera highway, very near lots of great gourmet international restaurants (French, Italian, German, Swiss, Indonesian, Estonian . . . ), just minutes from grocery stores and other shopping in Ojochal and Uvita, and a short drive away from the best surfing in Dominical, and many wildlife parks and attractions.
Local Property Manager Minutes From the House!: The local property manager, Moises Solano, is located just minutes away from the house. He will greet you, show you to the house, make sure that you are comfortable and familiar with your surroundings, then continue to do everything possible to make your stay a comfortable and enjoyable one. He can assist you with booking tours, rental cars, advance or forward travel arrangements, as well as handling any questions or problems that could arise during your stay.
This is sure to be an experience that you will never forget.
I built this beautiful home with a talented local architect and general contractor, completing it in 2009. I'm from New Orleans, and completely fell in love with this part of Costa Rica about twenty years ago.
Owner purchased this villa in 2009
This villa is surrounded by jungle and ocean, so it's entirely peaceful and secluded, but also incredibly close and convenient to everything. The jungle hides the few nearby homes from view, so you feel like you're in the middle of nowhere. But it's only a five minute drive from the main thoroughfare, and close and convenient to all restaurants, attractions, amenities. It also offers luxury at a bargain price. Why stay in a cramped hotel room or little cabina for the same price when you can have this entire villa with its crystal-clear swimming pool all to yourselves?
This is one of our favorite places to stay. It's close to everything but yet it is away from everything.. You get the best of both. Private - Fantastic View - Great Pool!!! You don't really need a 4x4 to get here but do get one for exploring. Great restaurants close by. A couple of our favorites are The Bamboo House & The Beach Club @ Villa Leonor.. It is always a pleasure to deal with Karen and Mo (The Property Manager). We will be going back again very soon and I hope that the property is open and ready for our next adventure.
Thank You Karen & Mo!! You guys are the best!!!! See you again SOON!!!

Overall, a nice rental. Loved the location - end of a dirt road, completely private. We didn't see or hear anyone while at the house for three days. Relatively close to Uvita for the essentials, and very close to ojochal which has some excellent restaurants. Some great beaches within minutes of the rental as well.
Nice pool and the home is clean with a good floor plan.
Had a great stay . The scenery was unbelievable. Would highly recommend this place . Thanks for booking me on such short notice ..
La Villa est située dans un endroit magnifique entourée d'une belle végétation luxuriante. La chambre principale est super grande et agréable et les enfants avaient chacun leurs chambres au rez-de-chaussée avec leur propre salle de bain avec douche. La piscine est très bien, l'eau est chaude et était très claire. La personne qui nous accueillit pour nous présenter la villa est très serviable et parle un excellent anglais. Les plages sont à 5 minutes en auto et il est préférable d'utiliser un 4X4 pour se rendre à la villa. Quelques cascades sont aussi à proximité pour s'y baigner. Nous avons adoré notre séjour à cette villa.
This was the 2nd time we had stayed at Karen's villa. In terms of privacy and space you can't beat it. It's a wonderful place to wake up and spend your mornings listening to the sounds of birds, monkeys and various other sounds of nature including the ocean. The temperature at that elevation in the evening is perfect. The private pool is what made it for us. We spent a lot of time on the front porch area, that is well equipped with a table and chairs along with various other patio furniture. The full kitchen is nice because we were able to cook our own breakfast and enjoy the mornings without having to get dressed and rush out. Karen is a pleasure to deal with and we will definitely be back.
Karen's home (Villa Canto del Mar) is where my husband and I stayed for 8 nights during our recent honeymoon in Costa Rica. The stay here was so memorable and beautiful. Mo the manager was so accommodating when we asked him if we could extend our stay a few extra nights, he was also so helpful and full of good ideas for us to do. When we left I nearly cried -- because the ocean views from our room and master bath were phenomenal, we could hear the sounds of the crashing waves whenever tide came in, there were toucans in a bunch of the trees right around the pool, and all the restaurants in the area were fun and memorable. There was even live music! When I have a bad day I think of this beautiful place and all the lovely people we met here. I hope we can return.
I first started coming to this beautiful part of Costa Rica ten years ago, and fell in love with the natural secluded surroundings, the gorgeous beaches, and the teeming wildlife. I don't think that there is any part of Costa Rica that quite compares with the Southern Pacific. Ojochal is a charming rustic village containing gourmet European restaurants in the jungle. Uvitia is the nearest larger town, containing banks, grocery store, bars, restaurants and entertainment. Dominical is a surfers' paradise. Fun Hip village for surfers and those who like to watch them, Great beach!
Other Activities: Kayaking, Boating, Wildlife Viewing, Health/Beauty Spa
