Cartago Villa Rental Photos and Description

Two luxury bedrooms with full baths, 1 half bath, and pull out couch.

Canto del Mar, the Song of the Sea, is set on landscaped terraces right in the middle of the Costa Ballena, one of the most beautiful places on earth. Behind you the forested Talamanca mountains rise like a backdrop and in front of you the Pacific Ocean’s constantly changing colors and patterns settle your soul.

This condo is within a 10 minute walk downhill to Dominicalito beach. The slight altitude of your tranquil vacation spot is what gives it beautiful views and an ideal setting to catch refreshing breezes off the ocean and the mountains. Just minutes from the coastal highway, it’s a world apart.

To provide luxurious privacy, you will have two bedrooms, each with full baths, plus another half bath. A pull out couch provides room for more guests or the children. Throughout the residence you have beautiful views and a relaxed sense of indoor/outdoor living. Previous guests always comment on the time they spend on the patio inhaling the fresh air and watching toucans, listening to howler monkeys, and calmly enjoying a favorite drink.

A fully equipped kitchen with all of the modern conveniences allows you to be as creative as you want with fresh local ingredients. When you prefer to eat out, there is a variety of restaurants close by with food to savor and settings to remember.

When you’re ready for a bit of adventure, there are many activities to choose from within an hour’s drive: horseback on the beach or to waterfalls, snorkeling, Manual Antonio National Park, SCUBA, fishing, zip lines, nature hikes, yoga classes, ATV and kayak tours, waterfall rapelling – you name it and our manager will help you arrange it.

Dominicalito is just a 3 hour drive on good roads from San Jose. When you book your reservation, we will give you clear directions for getting here. Many visitors rent a car and drive themselves, but your manager/personal concerige will be happy to arrange for a courteous, safe, private driver if you prefer. Either way the variety of landscapes you drive through will make the drive go quickly.

An amazing location ! Spectacular sunsets every night and a beautiful beach view. Close to great beaches. This house was perfect. Clean, well organized, professionally managed. Kelley was very helpful. We loved hanging out on the outdoor patio. The bedrooms were comfortable. Excellent amenities. We’d come back.

Breath taking views, close to shopping, beach and activities. Nestled in a paradise, where monkeys parrots and tocans frequented daily. The best spot on earth.

Elegance in the jungle

  • 5 of 5

With a Spectacular view of Dominicalito Bay, this 2-story villa sits in a gated complex just 4km from Dominical. Luxurious, spotless, secure and comfortable. Private terrace. Poza Azul is just a 10 minute walk, as is the beach. 4x4 is recommended to access the villa.

Relaxing week in Dominical, Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for my husband and I and our friends. Everything we hoped for and more. Walk to the beach. A few minutes by car to restaurants and grocery store. We cooked our own dinner a couple of nights in the great kitchen and just drank wine and listened to waves crashing below. Saw Toucans every morning before we took off on one of our many excursions all within an hour of this wonderful villa. Will be back as soon as possible. Plan to stay at least two weeks next time!

A Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa for our week-long vacation in Costa Rica. The villa was even better than the description and even the pictures. It was very well maintained and appointed. The location was close to all our activities, the beach, and restaurants.

Our communications were clear, concise, and timely. We were provided with great recommendations for tours, restaurants, even yoga. Everyone we met was so friendly and helpful. I could tell they had a good reputation in the community.

I highly recommend staying in this villa. You will not be disappointed.

Car: recommended

The Villa is uniquely positioned on a lush jungle mountainside (4x4 recommended) directly above the bay, and the surrounding area is undeveloped, and pristine. An over abundance of natural attractions like the Nauyaca waterfall, the Diamante Falls, and Hacienda Baru wildlife refuge, and Manuel Antonio National park are a few that you do not want to miss!
