About the property

House, 8 Bedrooms, 8 Baths, (Sleeps 16)

This unique property has plenty of privacy, wildlife, fruit orchards, waterfalls and streams set on 250 acres. There is a Main House with a swimming pool, open kitchen, 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. There are two adjacent Guest House each with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

Located 800 ft in elevation & a mile from the ocean, the property has a regular breeze and inspiring views all year around, all day long.

The environment feels less like a salty beach & more like a refreshing rain forest. Yet there are excellent beaches for family walks, horseback riding and others for surfing - all within 10-20 minutes from our doorstep.

Toucans live in the trees around the house. It is not uncommon to see toucans daily. A wide array of wildlife lives in the property including howler monkeys, parrots, 3-toe sloth and many other species. During the rainy season eagles perch nearby.

This property has many types of fruit trees including an orchard and depending on when you're visiting, various fruits from the property are provided for your sampling.

If you're ready for serious hiking and bring the appropriate gear, we can arrange a guide to take you through our pristine jungle to see what few people have the opportunity to see.

About Annick and Jason

We've traveled the world, and have spent a lot of time in Southeast Asia, Brazil and Southern Europe. Our place will compete with any of these locales.

Annick and Jason purchased this villa in 2009

Why Annick and Jason chose Puntarenas

The southern part of Costa Rica is ideal for our children to experience nature and explore the abundance of wildlife, trees, flowers and birds of the area. We fell in love right away when we came to visit this farm for the first time in 2006. As soon as we learned that this property was for sale, we bought it right away as we knew that this will be rare gem that our children and their families could enjoy for years to come.

What makes this villa unique

The privacy is unparalleled. Nowhere else will you find a house for rent that is surrounded by the rain forest, yet with killer ocean views and restaurants a short drive away.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of most memorable vacations we have ever taken. The hosts were helpful, generous and eager to accommodate our group. It's really hard to describe this home and our experience because it is so unique. The home sits on 250 acres in the middle of the rainforest. We were often serenaded by monkeys in the morning right outside our window! The wildlife viewing was spectacular.

The home itself sits on a cliff with amazing panoramic views of the ocean with a 180 degree views. Sunsets were by far our favorite time of day. The pool was great for our kids and the jungle hikes were challenging, unique and adventurous.

I highly recommend this property!

Perfect group getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

Recently returned from an incredible spring break trip with a big group of friends and couldn't be happier! There was a ton of room in both the huge main house and the two guest-houses for everyone to retreat and relax at the end of the day - yet lots of places (on the deck, in the main house, by the pool) for everyone to hang out together as well. The kitchen had a great set-up for staying in and cooking meals - but there were also a ton of delicious restaurants in Dominical. Also, if you are into great Costa Rican wildlife you will not be disappointed - the orchestra of birds and monkeys, particularly in the morning, will take your breath away. If you're looking for a mix of privacy, lots of space, gorgeous scenery and close access to town - this is it!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This house was just perfect, great place to wake up with amazing views and jungle noises. The main house has a big opening plan and a great huge kitchen that's very well equipped. Since there was 10 of us it was great we could all help cook amazing meals. Beside the main house, there are two guests houses both of them have a living room and kitchen and a room with extra beds/bunkbeds for kids so great for multiple families to stay there or just a group of adults. Each bedroom has their own private bathroom so that's very nice too. We would hang out by the pool every day after all our adventures. You can even walk to this restaurant/bar that has live music. You can go on amazing hikes on the property guided by the person in charge of the house. I would highly recommend it and I'm looking forward to go back.!

Adventures and Seclusion in one

  • 5 of 5

Great place to wake up at, hang out at all day, and return home after a day of adventures. Lots of space for large groups to be at the house without being on top of each other and still all able to eat meals together inside or outside. The kitchen has enough space for a couple people to cook while others are able to help or socialize at the breakfast bar.

The dirt road drive up to the house is worth it for the views and being surrounded by the jungle. Walking the property on the paved roadways was a great way to start the day. Able to see some wildlife on the walks.

With a number of activities available within a 20 minute drive those seeking adventures are able to easily get to them and home each day to enjoy the house. Close activities include surfing, a couple beaches for swimming, shopping, restaurants, and canyoning. The pool at the house was perfect for cooling down after an adventure or to hang around for the day, with a section you could sit in to help keep you cool or deeper section for those who wanted swim to meet everyone’s needs.

If you are looking for a secluded place to stay either to get away from it all or one to come home to each night this house offers privacy with easy access to fun and food.

Amazing House with Unbelieveable Views

  • 5 of 5

If you're looking for a great house for a large group, this is it! The house is absolutely amazing with a great layout for group activities while allowing for a little private time when you need it. Every bedroom has its own bathroom, the common areas are comfortable and accommodating, but the best feature is the beautiful deck/pool with stunning views from every angle. Beautiful, tropical birds reside in every tree, and the monkeys also make their presence known. The property is a secluded sanctuary with easy access to Dominical for dinner out, surf lessons, spa treatments and a day at the beach. A short drive to anything you could hope to experience in Costa Rica.

A perfect week in a perfect house

  • 5 of 5

I have rented large houses for large groups on many occasions- family reunions, friend trips, big ski trips, and I have to say, this house is absolutely the best set up for a big group. Every bedroom has privacy and it's own bathroom, not to mention the fact that there are three entirely separate houses, spaced right next to each other. Oh wait, did I mention that it also happens to be located on 250 acres in paradise? It's absolutely perfect, if you stumbled across this listing and are looking for a spot to fit in a larger group or a few families- seriously you found your spot! One of the best, most fun restaurants in the area is down just a few hundred yards from the end of the private driveway. There are monkeys, crazy amounts of birds, frogs, all right there to watch from the expansive decks!

The town of Dominical is small, laid back and great for learning surfing. Ask the hosts for info on who to contact for surf lessons, I ended up liking it so much I went every day for a lesson.
