DISCRIPTION

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

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.

Superbe villa dans la jungle avec vue paradisiaque

  • 5 of 5

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 !

Still Primo

  • 5 of 5

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.

Costa Rica at its finest

  • 5 of 5

This was out 5th visit to the South Pacific region and will not our last. The house, its location, the services, everything surpassed our expectations. What a great way to start you day by taking in the breathtaking views, walking those wonderfull gardens, listening to howlers while having your coffee . Pura Vida at it's best. Thank you !

If you are hesitating don't . The road leading to the house is safe and easy. It' s Proximity to Domincal village, the best beaches in Costa Rica and more sightseen on site than in a natural park makes this home the perfect vacation home.

Paradies

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary at Gorda Vista, and we still talk about it almost every day. The house is perfect, the grounds are impeccably landscaped and Steven and Neil were so helpful with any request. There is plenty to do but it's also a guilt-free way to just lounge around the pool, go to town for groceries and then come home to watch the sun set. We have spent the last several years renting homes in various locations through VRBO but this is honestly the most lovely and most memorable.

Our first night was a comedy of errors due to travel and weather but Steven and Neil took care of us and made sure we were settled even though it was quite a late evening by that point. We are forever grateful for their empathy and concern for our safety.

We hope to come back in 2016- it is a truly magical place to spend 2 weeks.

Perfect Vacation at Gorda Vista

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (including two young teenage sons) stayed at Gorda Vista for a glorious week in July. My late post in no way reflects how we felt about the home. The house was perfect for us --- so perfect that I hate the fact that we have to share it with others. We would return to Gorda Vista in a heartbeat if we're ever lucky enough to go back to Costa Rica.

We were able to have many adventures in Dominical and near Manual Antonio as well as further south. We recommend Dominical Surf Adventures (Savegre River white water rafting), El Santuario Canopy Tours (zip lining), and horseback riding to Nauyaca Waterfalls. We visited several beaches in the area. Our favorite beach was Playa Ventanas and a close second was Marina Ballena (where you can see the Whale's Tail formation at low tide.)

Neil and Stephen were very helpful and answered all of our questions before and during our stay. The house itself has a well-stocked kitchen and very comfortable beds. We didn't see a single rental we would have preferred to stay in. Once we made it to the house every afternoon, we were completely alone. You can't see any neighbors. All we could see and hear were howler and capuchin monkeys, toucans and all sorts of other wildlife. It was as close to paradise as we could have asked for. It's a great place for bonding with your family and/or friends.

Many thanks to the owners for creating a luxurious retreat in the middle of the jungle.
