Gorgeous Home offers peace and privacy

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights in the amazing Casa Cielo. To get there, you need a 4-wheel drive vehicle, as it's up (about a mile) relatively rugged terrain; what this actually means, though, is that you feel like you are in a completely secluded place (despite the fact that there are, in fact, other vacation properties around you.) The infinity pool is unbelievable. The home is beautiful. And the serenity is unmatched. You are less than 10 min from Dominicalito's (surfing) beach, and 15(ish) minutes from the adorable town of Dominical. The home's location would you allow you to just escape the world and stay in the entire trip, with a beautiful view and total peace, OR, it can be a great jumping off place to go explore the sights, hikes and beaches of Costa Rica; and it has the best sunsets I've ever, ever seen.

Gorgeous views

  • 4 of 5

The house is situated a perfect distance from town for just the right amount of privacy and connection to services/fun. Our first morning there we were greeted by white-faced monkeys doing their morning feeding. They trounced through the trees that line the property. Every morning we delighted in watching toucans feed and fly between two nearby trees. We had Marlena, one of the caretakers, cook a wonderful meal for us. We hit the beach and took a tour to Corcovado--a must! This is a great place and great location.

Amazingly beautiful home and view

We went in October for a few days with a group and we had the most incredible time. The house is comfortable, gorgeous, modern and has everything necessary for a relaxing and enjoyable time. The views are out of this world as well!

A view you will never forget

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a week there for relaxing and exploring. We really enjoyed the home and its setting in the mountain canopy. Its a nice drive up the mountain side but close enough to dining activities and shopping. Very quiet as it is up from the surf and the road.

The home is very high quality and the patio overlooking the ocean was our main hangout. The pool was perfect for the hot parts of the day.

25th Wedding Anniversary Adventure

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights at the beautiful Casa Cielo as part of our 25th wedding anniversary trip. We arrived at sunset and the views of the ocean and surrounding rain forest are phenomenal! The house is modern and well appointed with either ocean or rain forest views from every room. We had the opportunity to see many birds (toucans, hawks, humming birds, etc) and other wildlife. The howler monkeys were our morning alarm clock. The infinity pool was the perfect place to start the morning and to cool off after the days' adventures. The home is located conveniently enough to allow easy access to the beaches, wildlife sanctuary, whale watching tours, horseback tours and many hikes. The caretaker provided a lot of good ideas for activities and we were able to order a "Tiko" dinner from the housekeeper that was brought right to the house. The meal was delicious and enjoyed on the patio at sunset. The close town of Dominical has multiple restaurants and we especially enjoyed our dinner at Patron's. Definitely a trip to remember!

My family and I were blown away by the incredible views from the deck and the beautiful sunsets every night. This beautiful well maintained home is located in a secluded location but still close to a village with plenty of places to eat and an amazing beach with surf lessons and deep sea fishing available. The beaches in this area are pristine with hardly any people on them and we were there during the dry season. I would recommend staying here to anyone who enjoys getting away from the masses and embraces peace, beauty and tranquility. I have rented many places around the world and this is one of my all time favorites. Waking up to the sounds of howler monkeys, birds - amazing!!!
