Dominical house description

The DuPont Registry of Fine Homes describes Puertocito Point as, 'Undoubtedly one of Costa Rica's premier properties with an over the water feel unavailable virtually anywhere else in this beautiful and diverse country.'

Puertocito Point can be privately reserved as a 2 to 4 suite vacation rental with occupancy up to 9.

Perched on a bluff overlooking the Pacific, you will find the Main Villa with unobstructed 180 degree panoramic ocean views. The Villa has two King Suites and a private sun deck and pool. A stones throw away you will find two suites in the Guest Cottage with private ocean view decks and full baths.

This private Estate is set on 12 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, surrounded by lush rain forest and mountains. The property is bounded on all sides by protected nature reserves with abundant wildlife.

Freshly renovated from top to bottom and under new management, the Point is a special destination, one you won't forget.


More About the Property: Puertocito Point is built as close to the Pacific Ocean as allowed under Costa Rica's strict environmental laws: 50 meters from the high tide mark. From the Main Villa atop a cliff, you will find jaw-dropping unobstructed 180 degree Pacific Ocean views. The Villa's twelve acres are sandwiched between protected green zones to the north and south with a dramatic backdrop of first ridge mountains and a combination of primary and secondary rain forest. It's a unique setting that delivers the scenic beauty and wildlife you expect from Costa Rica. Geographically, we are located in Costa Rica's more tropical and much less developed Southern Zone, making this an ideal place to experience the country's natural splendor. Despite its privacy and tranquility, Puertocito Point is just a minute from the Coastal Highway and a few minutes drive from the towns of Dominical and Uvita with a variety of amenities, including restaurants, shops, groceries, banks, etc.

For swimming and boogie boarding or surfing we recommend a two minute drive to Puerto Nuevo, a virtually private beach. Two boogie boards are on the house!

The Main Villa is comprised of a Master Suite with a California King bed and a Junior Suite with a king bed, each with its own full bath. There is also a half bath off the Great Room. Bedrooms are air conditioned, common areas are not but have large ceiling fans.

The master suite also features a Tower Room up the stairs from the bedroom with great views of the pool and ocean below. A great place to do yoga, meditate, or just enjoy the view.


With a brand new (August 2014) NetSys dedicated high-speed internet service, our fast WiFi is great for those who need to stay connected to family, friends, and/or businesses during their stay. Those with GSM phones will also enjoy strong cell phone reception, including 3G data access for browsing and email.

The Point's abundant wildlife gives guests the real experience of being in a tropical rain forest without trekking all the way to Manuel Antonio. Birders and nature photographers will not be disappointed by the property's incredible biodiversity.

The property overall has benefited tremendously from a continuous capital improvement program started in 2010 and continuing through 2014 with $50,000 of renovations to the property in the past two years. The program has completed numerous upgrades to the villas, including new roof, new windows, new pool and sun decks, new electrical lines, new water lines, fresh paint, new lighting fixtures, new master shower, upgraded Internet service, new TV, and much more.

Guest Cottage: In The Guest Cottage there is an upper King Suite and a lower Queen Suite, both with a full private tiled bath and a private furnished deck with yet another lovely ocean view. All this less than a stones throw from the Main Villa. Bedrooms are air conditioned.

Puertocito Point is very close to a variety of restaurants, grocery stores, shopping, banking and any other services you may need. There is a doctor, a pharmacist and dentist located right in Dominical, all speak English.

Your local property managers are available during your stay to offer advice on various local activities and address any service needs at the property.

Your stay at Puertocito Point will be a once in a lifetime experience, unless, of course, you return next year!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please contact us directly regarding availability. We maintain a separate reservation calendar from this site.

Car: Recommended

Puertocito Point is located just 9 Km south of Dominical on the most dramatic coastal shoreline in Southern Costa Rica. Located directly on the ocean, access to Puertocito Point is effortless with only a 2-wheel drive vehicle. The property is a short drive to over 10 popular surfing breaks. Just minutes from both Uvita and Dominical, shopping and banking are always nearby.

Puertocito Point is very private and exclusive, nestled on 12 acres of jungle and reserve, perched over the Pacific on a dramatic bluff. However, you can walk just a short distance to a luxury Spa and Restaurant where all your pampering needs can be met!

There are many ways to get to Puertocito. Take a short hop on a domestic airline from San Jose airport to Quepos or Palmar domestic airports, drive your own rental car, or hire a private taxi service to pick you up at the airport. When you book we will be happy to assist you in making your chosen travel arrangements.

Other Activities: Boating, wildlife viewing, rock climbing, shopping, kayaking, health/beauty spa.

Golf: A new 9 hole golf course is just 25 minutes south of Puertocito! There is also an 18 hole course 1:45 north in Jaco.

Year Purchased: 2007

About: The Point's owners believe that travel is one of life's great privileges, allowing us to experience new people and places to forge enduring memories. We share a love for the tropics, natural beauty, and adventure, so we could think of no better jumping off point than southern Pacific Costa Rica.

Why Dominical:
We come from a long history of adventure and outdoor travel, and we have seen tropical real estate the world over. When one of our friends introduced us to the Point, we knew it was a special destination. The views, the wildlife, and the privacy sold us immediately on this spot, not to mention the convenient location relative to the highway, airports, and local communities. We maintain that this property is without equal in the southern zone.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
-- Panoramic ocean views perched atop a cliff -- Lush tropical setting -- Total privacy -- Rich wildlife -- Proximity to area amenities and transportation -- Professional reservations and property management -- Unique and attractive home decor -- Beautifully landscaped courtyard and grounds
