How many places can say they have 2 sloths living on their property year round? Well we do! One sloth is visible from the balcony or shower in a tree next to the house on most days.

Other than the sloths, we're also visited regularly by toucans, aracaris, anteaters, coatis, monkeys, hummingbirds, iguanas, etc etc.

Nevermind the 0 reviews on homeaway because we're new to this site, House of Jupiter has 40 different 5 star reviews on airb&b.

House of Jupiter is a beautiful spacious home in the jungle covered mountains above Dominical. We pride ourselves on being eco friendly and carbon neutral. The house is solar powered (but also still tied to the grid so we never run out of electricity), we receive our water from a nearby spring and the majority of the furniture was made from locally and sustainably havested bamboo. The house has a very fresh and open feel with 14 foot cathedral ceilings covered in bamboo and large windows everywhere with lots of new screens to keep the bugs out and let in the breeze off of the pacific ocean. We're located at a perfect 1000 feet elevation and in pure jungle so the temperatures are much cooler (in the shade) than if at sea level so there is no need for airconditioning, although we do have airconditioning in the downstairs. But go out in the sun by the pool and it's plenty hot for swimming. You're free to use the A/C but in 3 years it's been used 2 times. But every room does have a high output ceiling fan and a oscillating pedestal fan for the days it gets warm.

5 bedrooms with a total of 7 beds, all have memory foam. The main bathroom has a giant concrete bathtub and shower that has a jungle view and sometimes you can see toucans, a sloth, or monkeys while bathing. Fully furnished kitchen and dining area. Giant terrace/balcony that is a great place to relax or do yoga (3 yoga matts included) with lots of seating and 2 oversized hammocks. A sitting area. Living room with 50" tv, satellite tv, blueray player and the ever important WIFI.

The house sits on 6 acres which is a combination of jungle and bananas and fruit trees. The closest neighbor is seperated by several acres of jungle and you cannot see them or hear them. We also have an organic vegetable garden, pineapples, avacados, coffee, and many types of fruit for you to enjoy when they're in season.


5 bedrooms with linens, 2 Fully furnished kitchens, (dishes, coffee, fridge, stove, pans, cooking oil and spices, microwave, blender, toaster, etc etc), 2 full bathrooms with towels, 2 half baths giant terrace, infared barbecue grill, pool and patio, many types of fruit grown on the property.

Interaction with guests:

I can arrange rental cars, tours/activities, surf lessons, etc and do not need a credit card. If you need anything, I am more than happy to help with any planning. There are several beautiful well known waterfalls in the area but I also know of several that are still secret and private to the rest of the world. I can set up surf lessons or tours. Suggest best places to go. If you like, I can pick you up at the airport (4 passenger maximum in my 5 seater), and drive you to the house.

The neighborhood:

A private community up in the jungle covered mountains near Dominical with incredible mountain and ocean views. At over 1000 ft elevation so the temperatures are more comfortable and fresh feeling than the beach. Just a short drive from 2 different beaches. One, a famous touristy surfing beach and the other a completely natural deserted beach where you can walk for miles sometimes and not see people. Our little piece of paradise is surrounded by national forest preserve so we are visited by many animals. You will feel like you are a million miles from the rest of the world but the beach town of Dominical and many activities are only a 12 to 15 minute drive away.

Getting around:

I am more that willing to meet our guest in Dominical and give them a ride (free of charge) to the house or if you're in a car you can follow me to the house. Also, I can pick you up at the airport and/or take you to the airport. Then you can rent a car just for the days you are in the area or I can take you places. Just ask me about it and we can agree on a price in advance.

As with most places in Costa Rica that aren't on a paved highway, 4x4 is highly suggested mainly because of the ground clearance but it isn't absolutely necessary during the dry season. Front wheel drive car can manage just fine but I would not recommend a rear wheel drive car because of the lack of traction on the hills. Rainy season I only suggest 4x4's because rental companies use poor quality tires that are not all-terrain.

The town of Dominical and the little pueblo of Baru at the entrance to our community has bus stops and a regular and dependable bus system that can take you all over costa rica for a couple dollars. Taxis are also availabe to and from the house.
