About Judith Adams

I love the outdoors and traveling! Costa is our go-to country, as the nature is profoundly beautiful, the people are gracious and greet you with an open heart, and the food is delicious and nutritious! Great place, great friends, great food = great memories!!

Judith Adams purchased this house in 2009

Why Judith Adams chose Puntarenas

Los Sueños Dorados is high enough to not only be surrounded by gorgeous moutain views, but able to benefit from the cooler mountains Air that descends at night. This property is bordered by a crystal clear river, with a 40 foot waterfall a short walk downstream. It is an incredible piece of nature.

What makes this house unique

The property is at the end of the road! It is private, but not isolated. You can get there in two wheel drive. The river is beautiful and makes a wonderful and relaxing place to be. The mountain views and surrounding nature will nourish your soul. It is a 15 minute drive to the beach for surfing enthusiasts. There is something for everyone!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello from gray and overcast Washington DC!

We had a lovely stay at your place. What a location! Such a view! The toucans made regular appearances and were well photographed. We had a good rainstorm one evening and lost electricity, but the power was back on by the time we got back from the beach in the afternoon.

We had dinner twice at the local restaurant you recommended -- very pleasant indeed. We also went to PorQueNo, just south of Dominical, and had a fabulous meal (suitable for foodies) with an incredible view of the sunset.

We were regular visitors to the falls below the house. Water levels were low, but still plenty of cool clear water to splash around in. Did a hike up to Nauyaca Waterfall on a hot day - glad we had plenty of water to drink.

We absolutely loved our stay at Judith's house. It is very secure, beautifully landscaped, with a cristal clear pool and amazing views. The kitchen is fun to cook in since it is so well stocked with everything new and in such great condition. She provided detail instructions and responded quickly to any questions. The location, being about 15 minutes away from Dominical was better than I expected. 15 minutes up the hill means cooler temperatures. We slept peacefully with out a need for air condition. I will absolutely be recommending this house to our friends.

Beautiful! Pure Costa Rica!!!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful family home! Enjoyed our stay. The views amazing! The nature amazing! The house very comfortable for our family. Must must must take the hike to the waterfall. Gorgeous! Spent a morning in Dominicaliti and then came back to the house to enjoy the pool and surroundings.

Definitely recommend arriving at daylight if you can avoid traffic as the entry is hard to do in the dark.

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home. We loved every moment of it.

Never going home.

  • 5 of 5

Love love love this Casa. It's at the end of a gravel road and surround by the cloud forest. Privacy is without a doubt here. It's just lovely. Judith has gone above and beyond to make sure our stay here is perfect. And it is!

I could go on about the wonderful pool with a deep end and loungers. Or the hummingbirds galore. The birds singing all day. But it's the little things that make this place great too - a gas stove, high end cookware, a perfect coffee pot for Costa Rican coffee, and the people who add to the charm. The neighbors are all friendly and gracious. Not one person hasn't waved or said hola!

The cloud forest is changing from minute to minute so if your driving down the mountain or over the mountain the vista is stunning. A sight to behold from the backyard patio and ranchero.

Thank you for making our stay here so memorable.

Owner's Response: Hi Jarede, Thanks for your review and highlighting the beauty of Costa Rica and the friendly 'Ticos' that live there. I'm delighted that you are enjoying the house, it's natural setting, and the pool. It takes you away from the 'rush' of home and work. It does spoil you and make it difficult to get back on that plane Pura is!

Beautiful location with stunning views of the hills. Sloths, Toucans, Hawks etc. all seen in the grounds. Short 15 min drive to Dominical, lots to see and do close by. My kids had a great time. Perfect stay!

Beautiful Setting and a Great layout

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this brautiful home with my 8 and 15 year old children and we all absolutely loved our stay. The house is well layed out with a great sized kitchen, 3 bedrooms and fast wifi (important with a teenager!). The yard and pool overlooking the jungle are absolutely stunning. Hands down the best place we stayed while in Costa Rica. Carlos was there every day to make sure we had everything we needed and Judy has notes and tips on everything you need to fully enjoy and relax during your stay. Highly recommended!!
