Gorda Vista has been built and furnished to high specifications. Construction was recently finished in August 2012. The villa has been designed to be the ideal vacation property, which makes the most of its beautiful location. It encompasses this with the concept of outdoor living.

The property is private and has a gated entrance. It is secluded and located on the mountainside surrounded by forested jungle and wildlife. It is at an altitude of 564ft above sea level with cooling breezes off the ocean and mountains. It is ideal for a family vacation, a couple for a honeymoon, romantic get away or an adventure vacation.

The entire ground floor has been cleverly designed to integrate the pool, deck, covered terrace, kitchen and lounge into one outdoor living space. It can be easily changed into separate outdoor and indoor spaces by simply closing the large glazed doors that are on two sides of the lounge wall.

The top floor has two bedrooms, both with air conditioning, ensuite bathrooms and ceiling fans. The master bedroom has a larger balcony with 2 deck chairs and a table to enjoy the best sunrise coffee you have ever experienced as you listen to the jungle “wake.” It also has 2 stand-up balconies offering mountain and ocean views. It has a kingsize bed, a large ensuite bathroom, sandstone shower for two, 2 sinks and a separate toilet room. The second bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and 2 stand-up balconies offering ocean views. It can be used for children or a couple. There is also a comfortable queen-size convertible bed in the lounge.

The 45-foot lap pool with infinity edge overlooks Dominicalito Beach. It has a wider area adjacent to the house with two tiled sunken chairs and a raised table to relax in the pool water whilst sipping your cocktails and watching the sunset into the ocean.

Gorda Vista stands on a 5 acres of private tiered estate with a lower landscaped area with walking paths winding round over 100 different varieties of well tendered tropical plants, herbs and fruit trees which include Papayas, Star Fruit, Mangos, Lemons, Avocados, Mandarins, Pineapples, Oranges, Bananas, Plantains, Cashews, etc. These trees and plants are presently still young and being nurtured but if you find any herbs or fruit ready you are welcome to eat them.

The location of the property will make your vacation easy as the local stores, banks, restaurants and amenities are only a 15-minute drive away. There are a great variety of tours, activities and adventures for all ages and levels of excitement. They are all just a short drive away and can be booked and arranged by us.

Bed linen and towels for both bathroom and pool provided.

The villa is easy to reach with only a scenic 125 miles or 201 km drive from San Jose international airport (Juan Santamaria) on the newly constructed highways.

• You will need to rent a 4x4 vehicle to access the property and to enjoy the southern Pacific zone of Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

Overall experience was amazing!!! The pictures don't do the villa justice, it's breathtaking. Staff was extremely helpful and made our stay stress free! Everything you need is at the Villa, no need to buy anything for the pool or to cook with. Villa came fully accommodated as if it were your own house. Definitely made the stay feel like home.

Great house, pool, and beautiful views!

  • 4 of 5

Overall, our stay at Gordo Vista was great. The house and grounds are wonderful. The living room furniture is pretty uncomfortable and not really conducive to gathering in that space. Also, the safes for valuables weren't available, apparently because they had been switched out and the keys weren't provided to us. Other than these issues, great place to stay. You should know that to access the house, you have to cross a stream that always has running water. Depending on the amount of rain, you may not be able to cross. We didn't have problems the week we stayed. And, you will need 4WD vehicle to get up the mountain road. Pura Vida!

Unforgettable family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house is well designed with the outdoors in mind. The landscaping and pool are phenomenal. The location was ideal for our daily adventures. From the beginning Josue and Stephen were very helpful and responded to our needs quickly and effectively. The staff at checkout arrived promptly and kindly assisted us with some suggestions for our return to San Jose. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Gorda Vista, would highly recommend the property and staff, and hope to return in the future.

Even better than I ever expected!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this property set my expectations pretty high. What a surprise when we pulled up to the house and it was even more spectacular. This was our first time to Cost Rica, and we are so thankful this was the place we chose to spend it. Why we loved it...

1. The house: Gorgeous view/amazing property/new, well-maintained house/the pool/comfortable stay/AC/Internet/washer and dryer/fully furnished with lots of extras

2. Location: Dominical ended up being a perfect home base. The small surf town had everything . The beaches - Dominical Beach or Dominicalito Beach - were right there. We had the best fish from the local guy around the corner. It's just a cool area....the people wonderful as well.

3. Property staff - Thank you Stephen and Josue! We were well cared for and they were the reason why.

4. Wildlife/jungle - We had the best of both worlds. The house was up the hill in the jungle but only 5 minutes from the main highway. We saw monkeys, sloths, toucans, tree frogs, etc.

We are going back!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My Wife, two teenage daughters and I recently had the pleasure of staying Gorda Vista. The place itself is just as the pictures appear, beautiful. For the purpose of out visit the location was ideal. Right across the street from Dominicalito beach and right down the road from Dominical. We also took a short drive to Playa Ventanas. The neat thing about this area is there are so many beaches, and each of them are unique in their own way. We also visited Nauyaca Waterfalls where we rode horses back into the jungle to the Falls and then climbed the falls and jumped into the cool clear water below.

Gorda Vista was a great base camp for all of our activities. After a full day of activity it was enjoyable to spend late afternoons in the pool and the open air living area. The grounds are very well maintained and the howler monkeys were active each morning and evening. One afternoon a troop of about 6 monkeys went swinging by having fun which made for an enjoyable experience.

Check in and out was seamless and very easy. I would recommend Gorda Vista for anybody staying in the Dominical area.

One word "AMAZING"

  • 5 of 5

This place is truly a dream, and is better than we ever imagined. The pool was to die for and we spent many hours in it. We saw monkeys, toucans frogs and lizards right at the house. Super private and quiet, well actually it's pretty noisy with the sounds of the jungle but that's one of the best parts. The road to the house is fun and an adventure itself. Everyone went out of their way to make this trip great. Stephen was great on the front end, and Doug and Janet the owners were super welcoming and have an amazing and super well equipped home. We hit a variety of beaches all great, hiked to Nauyaca (not a bad hike) went to Manuel Antonio which was the only busy place we saw. Parasailed, did a kayak tour through the mangroves with pineapple tours (highly recommend) went to hacienda baru and had a great time hanging out at the house. Our favorite time was at night walking around the property and the beautiful gardens finding frogs and toads and geckos and some amazingly large bugs. My wife loved the lounger couch on the veranda with a good book. It's a great place highly recommend
