Make sure you check out the video in the photo section to see why we love this place!!.....

We purchased this quaint 2 bedroom 15 years ago and developed it into a beautiful breathtaking slice of paradise with an incredible ocean view.

Main house is 2 bedrooms 1 bath. Master has a queen bed and other bedroom has 2 bunk beds with double mattress on bottom and twin on top. Full kitchen ready for the serious cook with all utensils needed, including a Vita Mix blender, and a DCS Outdoor Grill/BBQ. Almost everything in our home was shipped from the USA. Our beds and linens are really nice too.

Guest house has 3 beds, 1 queen and 2 twins with bathroom/shower. Sleeps 3-7 if we toss a couple of air-mattresses down. Also has kitchen, fridge, coffee maker, stove top, microwave and all utensils for cooking meals.

Our property managers Alex and his wife Rosa resides below the property and speak Spanish. Rosa does speak a very little bit of English. She is also an excellent cook and if you desire she can accommodate your needs. Our close friends are internationally certified life guards, pro surfers, unbelievable guides and lots of fun. They are perfect example of what makes Costa Rica such a fun destination to travel because you will have the inside scoop on what to do and where to go. They can arrange the following:


Surfing and lessons



ATV Tours


Horseback Riding

Rafting and/or Kayaking

Rainforest Activities

Scuba & Skin Diving

Sport Fishing

Stand Up Paddle Boarding

Waterfall tours

Whale Watching



In home meals prepared by Rosa if desired.

Our house is snuggled in the mountains in an international community but with lots of privacy. Enjoy the beautiful ocean/valley view from the 30-foot front porch with hammocks, chairs and lots more seating. You will see many animals and birds right from the porch. Costa Rica cooking can be arranged for your breakfast and or dinner. The house is located just 12 minute drive from the tranquil village of Playa Dominical, Once a small fishing village now a popular surf destination. Dominical is now home to a thriving and friendly community. The lush jungle plunges into the sea and the colors here are truly tropical. Nature preserves surround you and the wildlife here is abundant. With year-round consistent waves, Dominical is a must for surfers. And the area’s natural beauty, wealth of activities, kayaking, hiking, whitewater rafting and local amenities, make this a great destination. A visit to Playa Ventanas (Windows Beach) is a must! It get's it's name from the beautiful sea caves that line the north and south ends of the beach. The two caves on the northend extend from the beach out to the ocean, a distance of about 50 meters, and during certain tides create a sort of 'blowhole' effect. Pressure from each wave blows a large cloud of steam out onto the beach. The caves on the south end of the beach tunnel deeply into the rock, and inspire thoughts of hidden pirate treasure.

Manual Antonio Park and beach is just 35 minutes away.

We absolutely love everything about this special spot!!! No disappointments.

The internet and cell service can be spotty at times but we are almost always able to send and receive our emails.

Please send me a message anytime if you have a question or comment. We would love to hear from you!

About Property Manager/Owner

We are a family of four from Houston, TX. Our family is very active, our hobbies are as follows:

Mountain Biking, surfing, hiking, repealing, cooking, ocean swimming, beach volleyball, entertaining, dancing, exploring and so much more. You name it, we've done it all.

Property Manager/Owner purchased this house in 2000

Why Property Manager/Owner chose Puntarenas

We traveled to Costa Rica for the first time in 2000 and returned 3 weeks later to purchase our house. My wife had never seen it because she was hanging out on the beach playing with our 8 month old Isabelle. We were just looking for land to invest in but realized we wanted something already built. Our house was not completed and we spent about 7 months building out the kitchen, water system, landscaping, large porch and a guest house. We absolutely fell in love with Dominical which has so much to offer. The beauty we see every morning when we wake up is indescribable, which you need to experience because words cannot describe.

Pura Vida!

What makes this house unique

Our home is very comfortable, it has a large 8 person dining table out on the front porch over looking the ocean. The two swinging daybeds on both ends of the porch are everybody's favorite. There is an outdoor shower behind the house that has hot water and a jungle view.

The kitchen has everything you need to cook. Counter top 2 place gas burners, 2 small ovens- one is a convection, microwave and a 36' DSC outdoor grill, numerous chefs knives and all cooking utensils are included including a powerful VitaMix blender for smoothies or margaritas. Our linens and bed spreads are really nice and comfortable.

Our house is very secure, built with beautiful solid steel doors and high security screens and alarm system allows the house to remain 'open' to the outside year around.

The birds are your alarm clock especially when the parrots are in their mating season. Toucans will call out morning and evening and the bird watching is incredible while hanging out on the front porch. It's really a nice way to start your day.

Immaculate Paradise will definitely stay again

  • 5 of 5

Wow, the pictures cannot capture truly how beautiful this home & lush paradise is around it!

The view from the back deck to the ocean is something out of a dream, plus the entire land around the place is groomed so nicely with abundant flowers growing everywhere.

My Fiance and I stayed for one month and everything was over the top! It is hard to put into words really how amazing this place is, we will definitely be coming back.

Imagine staying at a place that has everything and anything you could ever think of and its all the best of the best!

The host is over the top incredibly hospitable and nice! Incredibly grateful to have found this gem

Great stay at a lovely house!

  • 4 of 5

This house was everything described and more! The kitchen had literally every tool you could imagine. The home and grounds were maintained exceptionally! I spent most mornings and early evenings on the large porch overlooking the ocean watching so many beautiful birds. This is a perfect place for friends and families to gather! The owner and staff were so helpful, suggesting the right beaches, perfect restaurants and activities! You will definitely need a 4x4 to get there, but it is so worth it!! Perfectly peaceful!!
