Property description

Dominical is the Real Costa Rica, the Costa Rica the discerning traveler is looking for: away from the crowd; lush and tranquil, spectacularly beautiful and filled with an incredible variety of nature and adventure activities.

And Casa Mar y Luna is quite simply the best, most spectacular villa available to rent in Southern Costa Rica… we call it Barefoot Elegance at its best.

Introducing Casa Mar y Luna

As seen in the LA Times, California Home and Design and Unique Homes magazines, Casa May y Luna is a rare, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to stay in one of the most breathtaking homes on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica.

Casa Mar y Luna was designed from the ground up to enable guests to enjoy and experience the stunning beauty of it surroundings in comfort and offers a multi-sensory experience for a memorable Costa Rican vacation. Its location is unmatched in the area: panoramic ocean and mountain views, private, but only two minutes from the Coastal Highway and less than five minutes to the nearest beach. The owner’s assistants are available to offer local travel advice and handle any concierge service you may require so that you can focus on your travel experience and enjoy the house.

Drawing on the original owner's travels to over 50 countries, the house incorporates unique design features in an elegant yet minimalistic approach we call Tropical Elegance. The house was designed to provide a luxurious and comfortable vacation experience. There are 4 bedrooms, 3 large and one smaller, each with its own distinct personality and view. With the open air living room as the focal point along with the adjacent wrap-around infinity pool, our guests often find it difficult to leave to go enjoy the beaches and the rain forests and their abundant activities. You can literally lounge from sunrise until a starry or moonlit night in the outdoor living area, family room, or any of the bedrooms and adjoining decks and never tire of the views and tranquility. You can see an amazing variety of birds, including toucans and parrots, monkeys, sloths and coatamundis in the surrounding trees and of course, enjoy the ocean view where you can see almost the entire southern Costa Rican coastline. And the fabled Costa Rican sunsets are indescribable.

Ideal for couples or families traveling together, the house sleeps between 7-10 people in 4 bedrooms (with 4 ensuite bathrooms). The pictures offer a glimpse of the aesthetic beauty that the area and the house itself offer for discerning travelers.

We especially take pride in our personalized, attentive service...we can help you craft a unique, memorable, and authentic travel experience making you feel like an 'insider' during your stay in beautiful Costa Rica.

Casa Mar y Luna will be the foundation of the most amazing and luxurious visit possible to Costa Rica.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are an American corporate lawyer and Australian sailor/surfer/entrepreneur who now run a solar power system design and installation business in the area. We fell in love with Costa Rica over many years and the Costa Ballena and Casa Mar y Luna in particular on a trip in October 2011. We looked at many properties on that trip and as soon as we saw Casa Mar y Luna we knew we had found our place--nothing else compared. We're pretty sure you'll agree!

Why the Owner Chose Dominical:
Why Casa Mar y Luna? California Home + Design article 2007: A long exterior walkway,connecting the master bedroom and children’s rooms with the open-air living room, offers sweeping views and the exhilarating sensation of walking on treetops. The open kitchen, which Torres calls “command central,” looks out onto the formal dining room, living room and family room, which seem to almost float over the ocean. An inviting infinity pool, its curves echoing the contours of the shoreline below, is visible from all the common areas.' Why Dominical? Frommer's 2008: 'With a stunning setting, and miles of nearly deserted beaches backed by rainforest covered mountains, Dominical and the coastline south of it are excellent places to find uncrowded stretches of sand, spectacular views, [and] remote jungle waterfalls….' LA Times 2007. “You’re in Dominical, a tiny village nestled between the verdant rainforest and the Pacific on Costa Rica’s spectacular central coast. Minimally developed and staggeringly lush, Dominical is an unspoiled paradise, adopted home of surfers from all over the world, who come seeking epic barrels and a stress-free way of life.” Dominical is the 'real Costa Rica'. Plain and simple. We loved the amazing combination of lush, magical rainforest with the drama and energy of the ocean. In fact, we have traveled all over Costa Rica and this area is environmentally and topographically special. Some people says its' 'Where the Mountains meet the Sea'. Others call it 'Big Sur (California) in the Tropics'. Whatever you call it, it is simply unparalled anywhere in the world. We also like the fact that the area is not built up and still naturally beautiful. At the same time, there is every activity, tour, and excursion imaginable. Whether you stay with us or with someone else, come to Dominical.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our Chef, can pamper you an authentic, lovingly prepared Costa Rican meals or any other fare exceeding anything you can possibly get at a restaurant. Our guests have commented that our local cooking was one of the highlights of their stay...a real opportunity to enjoy real, local food. Meanwhile, the owner's assistants are available to offer local travel advice and handle any concierge service you may require so that you can focus on your travel experience and enjoy the house. Our objective is to guide you so that you travel like a local, experience the best of what our rich environment offers, and weave together a special story about your Dominical experience. Based on our extensive experience in Costa Rica and Dominical, we can customize every visit for your group. Whether you want to find the best surfing instructor, the best 'fine dining' or hole in the wall restaurant, or the 'can't miss' tour, we'll make it easy for you. A last minute couples massage? Done. Whipping up a Costa Rican style happy hour platter for the new friends you met on the beach? The point is we know the best places, the best services, and we provide you with authentic, warm Costa Rican hospitality to ensure you travel like an insider. The possibilities are endless, but here are a few. • In-villa massage. We have 2 or 3 favorite masseuses in the area who will come to the villa…enjoy a sunset massage right on the terrace while you listen to the birds and the waves in the background. • Personalized or group yoga. There is arguably no better place to learn or improve yoga than in the midst of the rainforest or on an idyllic beach. We can arrange yoga instruction right in our villa…or you can join group classes nearby. • Beach excursions to tranquil beaches. Karen can pack a lunch and a cooler full of drinks. There are countless out of the way beaches in the area, and we’ll point you in the right direction.
