Overview

Dominical Villa Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bathroom, Private Infinity Pool Overlooking Ocean Views

The Flying Monkey Villa is a villa nestled in the beautiful jungle as it meets the ocean, with stunning panoramic ocean/jungle views from all areas of this luxurious villa. Enjoy the private 'never-ending' infinity pool from the lower bedroom level. Walk straight out onto a large deck and enjoy margaritas you can make at the built-in custom outdoor wet bar. Enjoy the lush tropical landscaping while sitting in the patio furniture, or floating in your private one of a kind vanishing edge swimming pool. Enjoy dinner a level up on your private wrap around deck with pass-through bar seating area, which includes a beautiful thatched palapa, to allow you to dine and visit well into the evening.

The spectacular pool and terrace add an additional 800 square feet of outdoor living space to total over 2700 square feet of indoor/outdoor living space.

The views from every room in the villa allow you to become one with the wildlife of Costa Rica. The Costa Rican wildlife is abundant, especially in the morning when the birds are singing and the monkeys are 'flying' tree to tree across the jungle just below your pool. Toucans and Aracari come by for a visit and the local iguanas will be sure to greet you, while you are sitting under the palapa or relaxing around your private pool.

The lower level includes two bedrooms, each with their own private full bathroom, with his/her sinks. The laundry room and a small living area (that fits a inflatable bed) is also on the lower level. The upper level of the villa includes a spacious living room, dining area, powder room and fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops.

For dining enjoy a huge variety of cuisine at the local restaurants or create your own meals in your kitchen or barbeque on your deck.

The villa is located in a gated community with 24 hour guarded security, so you can rest at ease.

You will also have cable TV and a dock station for your Ipod or Iphone in the living room, as well as WiFi throughout the villa.

There is air conditioning throughout the villa, or you may wish to turn off the a/c and just open all of the screened doors and windows so the breezes and the sounds of the jungle are welcomed in.

Your 7th night at the Flying Monkey villa is on us. Stay for a week and only pay for 6 nights.

Staying at the Flying Monkey will be a vacation to beat all.

About Ian & Phyllis

As parents and grandparents, we are excited to introduce our family - and yours - to our new Costa Rican home and know that you will enjoy your time here .... the Pura Vida lifestyle.

Ian & Phyllis purchased this villa in 2012

Why Ian & Phyllis chose Puntarenas

We've traveled throughout several tropical countries before we experienced Costa Rica. We were mesmerized by the beauty of this lush destination on our first visit in 2007 and knew that we wanted to become part of this fabulous country. We have revisited Costa Rica on several occasions until we found the perfect home. We hope you love it as much as we do.

What makes this villa unique

Dominical is where the jungle meets the ocean. Having monkeys, toucans, aracari, sloths and other wildlife in our backyard is amazing. We had the pool built in December 2012, which will make your experience at this villa one of a kind.... something to remember. Or adventure to one of the local unspoiled, secluded beaches - so rare in most parts of the world.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This house and our stay at the Flying Monkey has been thoroughly amazing!



We spent almost every morning and evening on the deck watching all of the animals play!



Thank you for letting us share this magical place.



Pura Vida :)

A week in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you walk into this villa you are greeted by a view of the ocean and jungle. The upstairs has numerous outdoor spaces to sit and enjoy the serenity and peacefulness that you feel immediately upon arriving. The two large bedrooms have the same view as the upstairs but also lead to the infinity pool with another large outdoor space to relax. Sit in the pool and look at the ocean and the jungle which can provide views of monkeys, iguanas a variety of birds and even a sloth if you are lucky! This home is spotless and every detail has been thought out carefully to provide comfort for guests. This is by far the most beautiful place I have ever stayed. I can honestly say I spent a week in paradise!

Owner's Response: We are happy that you enjoyed your time at the Flying Monkey villa. Connecting your flights from Canada through San Jose and then on to Quepos reduced your drive to less than an hour. It's a great alternative.

Fantastic house, tons to do nearby

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house in December and had a fantastic week with our three kids - we loved the pool and the many balconies and the house was very well equipped and extremely comfortable. The concierge service was terrific - we had a full fridge upon arrival and the nearby grocery store was well stocked. We enjoyed walking to the nearby beach, which was great for exploring but not that great for swimming, and we also visited several other nearby beaches along the coast, as well as the many towns and restaurants. The location was also great for adventure activities - we took surf lessons, went horseback riding to a waterfall, zip lining and hiking. An added bonus is that the wifi worked very well, all the time - which is really important when you're travelling with teens! Would definitely return!

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This place rocks. Honestly, I felt that anyone staying in any other of the villas got slightly short changed. The Flying Monkey is perfectly situated with a stunning view overlooking Playa Dominicalito. The decor is well thought out, with lighting choices throughout, so that you can have a softly lit room, or brightly lit when working in the kitchen. The views out absolutely every window are stunning. I knew that there must be neighbours close by before I even saw the place, and there are, but they are hidden well with the trees and shrubs and the whole place feels very private. The pool is spectacular, the beds comfortable, the bathrooms luxurious, the kitchen well equipped. My son watched Netflix as he was able to hook up to the TV with his Smart Phone. We saw so much wildlife and the place came alive at night. We spotted toucans, white faced monkeys, huge grasshopper, stick insect, big and even bigger iguanas, and every bird you could imagine. Our outings were to the many beaches nearby, Marino Ballena National Park where we asked to have a guide (they aren't readily available and the man at the gate contacted one for us and luckily he showed up) and got a tour of the Mangroves, saw crocodile tracks in the sand, spotted not one, but five macaws. Incredible. We took the safari jeep tour which we arranged through Alexandre (conceirge) and it was fantastic (visited 2 waterfalls and small hike that lead us past some poisonous frogs). Manual Antonio National Park allowed us to see sloths (two and three-toed), monkeys, poisonous grasshopper, raccoons, crabs, and swim in turquoise blue water on a most excellent beach. Again, we took a guided tour here, but haggled for the price, getting it down by half. PorQueNo? and Tortilla Flats in Domincal delicious restaurant choices. The Baker Bean in Uvita is fabulous with the most excellent home made baked goods, pasta, and pizza. Visited the Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary -- what a treat -- so nice to see these animals being rescued, and if possible, released back into the wild (well worth visiting, even if just for the steep drive up the mountain!). I would go back to the Flying Monkey in a heat beat. Rent an SUV (we had a RAV4) through the villa's conceirge (better price). I'm probably leaving tons of stuff out, as there was just so much to inspire. The ambiance in this villa is super and is nothing like I've ever experienced. I loved Costa Rica and the Flying Monkey just made it all the more to love.

Beautiful home, excellent location, great owners and concierge

  • 5 of 5

The villa is new, fresh, and had a beautiful view of the ocean, nestled under a jungle canopy among lush vegetation. We enjoyed the abundance of wildlife, including a dozen toucans in the morning hoping thru the jungle canopy, hummingbirds, an agouti, and a few howler monkeys in the evening. The kitchen, living room, and dining room are on the upper level and have very nice diffused light coming in thru the jungle, and off of the Pacific. The bedrooms and the infinity pool are located on the lower level - the pool is so refreshing and comfortable that I spent half the day in it hanging on the edge gazing at the ocean and the studying the animal activity in the trees. Overall, the villa is very clean, very comfortable, relaxing and exceeded our expectations. The owners were very responsive to email and genuinely concerned that we enjoyed our stay; Alex was very polite, helpful and a pleasure to deal with. I only wish we had been able to stay longer!

Wow

  • 5 of 5

Alex with amazing! The concierge did everything from doing our shopping, to booking every single activity possible. The view was spectacular, and to be honest the Villa was amazing, but no comparison to what the locals had to offer. their hospitality, was just truly unbelievable. Stop and ask, and you will be answered. If you only speak English, stop at one of the many bars or shops on the side of the road. GPS can be a bit tricky, if you are shy, don't go to Costa Rica!! lol Or just go with someone who is willing to ask questions.

Beautiful home with a perfect view!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to Costa Rica was the best 7 days of our lives and The Flying Monkey the perfect home away from home. The home is beautiful and comfortable and I cannot imagine where you could find a more perfect view. While inside the house is beautiful, we spent most of our time on the patio or pool side. There was a television inside which was never turned on. There is so much to see outside. We spent most afternoons staring at the ocean view, watching the iguanas sunning in the trees and had a capuchin monkey show one afternoon. We also saw toucans and a number of other birds. Alex was a great help in planning activities and making recommendations. We went canyoning, on the jungle ATV tour and a hike in Marino Balleno Park with a guide. All of the guides were amazing and taught us so much about our surroundings. It is clear that everyone who lives here loves it and they are all so excited about sharing it with you. We did not have a meal that was not delicious. We tried Porqueno?, the restaurant at Villas Alturas (also the wildlife sanctuary witch was awesome), Dominical Sushi, El Pescado Loco and Tortilla Flats. We would absolutely choose The Flying Monkey when we return to Cost Rica and will absolutely be returning to Costa Rica. Thank you for allowing us to have this magnificent experience in your beautiful home!
