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, on suite bathrooms and ocean view verandas. The master bedroom has a king size bed and large on suite bathroom with a sandstone walk in shower big enough for two. The second bedroom can be used for children or a couple, as it has two single beds that can be pushed together to make one king-size bed. 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
My husband and 2 kids and I stayed at Gorda Vista for 6 nights over the holidays. We could not have picked a better place to stay. The drive up to the house is fun! The property itself is magnificent! I enjoyed a walk every day! The view cannot be beat. I enjoyed my coffee every morning watching the frogs and lizards and listening to the monkeys and birds before anyone else woke up. The house is so comfortable and well-appointed that my kids really didn't want to stay at the beach most days... they were ready to go back to the house to hang out at the pool by 2:00 every day! We enjoyed buying some fresh fish from the fish market and just cooking at the house.... it was just spectacular! Can't wait to return!
We spent a week in this house and enjoyed every minute. We were met by Stephen who we followed to the house along a dirt road in the rain. We crossed a small river along the way and climbed up through lush tropical foliage to the gate of the house. The house is better than the pictures show. The garden pathway down to the bottom of the property is beautiful. While taking a shower in the master bedroom I spotted a sloth. Howler monkeys put on a show and woke us up a few times. Hanging out in the veranda, jumping in the pool and soaking up some rays while gazing out to Dominicalita beach. WOW!! is all I can say. The house was clean and had everything we needed. I do want to thank Stephen and the staff for helping us out with a few minor things. They were very professional and went out of their way to make our stay comfortable.
Gorgeous house and pool. Beautiful garden with lots of wildlife, and the ocean view is spectacular as well. You can't go wrong here.
Very beautiful well maintained home located on a pristine property near Domincal. We stayed for a week and enjoyed all the home and surrounding area had to offer included offshore fishing and river rafting. Some days we simply enjoyed the pool and comfort of the villa. Great location for adults or families with kids. Lots to see and do with gorgeous beaches located nearby and plenty of local restaurants to enjoy some of the delicious local flavors of Costa Rica. There were white faced monkeys and toucans on the property although most were a bit photo shy.
Neil and his staff were great and always available if needed.
Nous avons passé une semaine fantastique à la villa Gorda Vista. Nous étions 4, 2 adultes et 2 enfants (9 et 5 ans).
La maison est très belle et très confortable, la vue sur l'océan et la nature est absolument paradisiaque, singes, toucans, ananas, papaye...
La piscine à débordement est magnifique. La villa dispose de toutes les commodités et est impeccable..
Vous êtes au milieu de la jungle mais tout en étant à quelques minutes de Dominical..
bref, le plus dur a été de partir !
Encore merci pour cette villa aux services irréprochables !
Just returned from our second stay at Gorda Vista. Our first stay was just a couple of months after the house was built. We were pleased to see that the property has been maintained very well. The landscaping has matured and grown quite a bit, but is still kept up nicely. Renters tend to be very hard on properties, so it was really cool to see that Gorda Vista is still just as nice as when it was new. Doug and Janet have added a carport and BBQ palapa, as well as a roof over the stairs, since our first visit, which all enhance the property. If you've never stayed here and are looking for the perfect place to headquarter from, rest assured that Gorda Vista will not disappoint.It's secluded and private, has a killer view, is close to anything you want to do, and Neil and Stephen are helpful and easy to work with.
