Dominical house description

Panoramic Ocean/Mts views, high above all others.

Casa Panoramica provides a spectacular white water ocean view from a newly completed 3 bedroom home nestled privately in the jungle at the top of the mountain, at the end of the road, with no through traffic, a guard at the entry of our gated community and a 24/7 caretaker on the property. You’ll love exploring my 5 acre retreat with extensive and well kept hiking trails and lookouts starting at the doorstep and meandering into the depths of the jungle. Watch for toucans, parrots, white-faced monkeys, howler monkeys, jaguarundis, pizotes, peccaries, hummingbirds, morpho butterflies, sloths, and much more.

Casa Panoramica is situated atop a ridge in the beautiful Costa Verde Estates (CVE), where you will experience peace, quiet and nature at it’s finest. CVE is a gated community with security. This beautiful house was finished in Jan 2010 and offers you all the comforts of home. There are 2 kitchens and both are fully equipped with all the modern conveniences including a stove, microwave, toaster, cutlery, dishes and more... The three bedrooms can comfortably sleep 8 and have plenty of space for your personal belongings in the beautiful cedar closets. There are two bathrooms, one upstairs, and one down. Your own washer and dryer is located conveniently just outside the front entry. You can watch sunsets and sunrises from the spacious terrace that surrounds the house.

The views from this property are absolutely breathtaking. Located at 2100’ above sea level, Casa Panoramica is 1000’ higher than the closest development below, yet still close to the water. This extra “lift” offers spectacular 360 degree views. from the southern to the northernmost tip of Costa Rica. The views include the Osa Pennisula, Isla Cano, the Whale's Tail, Playa Hermosa, Punta Dominical, Manuel Antonio, and the Nicoya Peninsula. Add to that the back views of Costa Rica’s highest mountain peak, Chirripo (13’000’) and the beautiful Diamante Waterfalls. This is simply on of the most amazing view sites in the country or the world! It will take your breath away, guaranteed!

Because of the elevation, air conditioning is unnecessary. There are breezes from the ocean during the day and from the mountains during the night. The average nightly temperature is 72 and the daytime temperature hovers around 77. There are also ceiling fans in each room. The beach temperatures are typically at least 8-10 degrees warmer.



Perhaps you’d enjoy hitting the beach and then returning to Casa Panoramica for a snooze in one of the several hammocks situated around the terrace. You can watch and hear the waves roll in while enjoying the breezes and a good book. There’s also a BBQ for you use should you decide to grill up your own catch of the day or buy some fresh fish down the road.

Should you feel the need to be connected, try out the internet connection (512K down). (Please bring your router if you prefer wireless.) There’s also great cell phone reception so you can rent a cell phone and stay in contact with those you choose. Or just plug your iPod into my speakers and veg out.

The house will be nice and clean upon your arrival. But, if you’d like additional housekeeping during your stay, I can arrange that for $35 for each day you’d like the housekeeper to visit. I can also help with other information or arrangements you need to have a fantastic and memorable visit.

If you like sublime isolation, beautiful ocean views and want to feel like your living in your own private National Wildlife Park……you’ve found the place…..Casa Panoramica.


If you want more action, Manuel Antonio is just 1/2 hour away on the new highway ( and Jaco, 1 hour+). With hundreds of bars, restaurants and a beach all in walking distance and on paved roads with no 4 wheel drive necessary. It is everything that we don't have on our wilder coast line! So you can stay in the wild and dramatic Costa Rica with access to the developed tourism just down the road!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Just down the hill are plenty of beaches and restaurants to chose from. At the Costanera Highway 4 km down on a well maintained and partially paved road turn right to Dominical, an international surfing destination,10 minutes away or left 8 minutes to Playa Uvita with many restaurants and services. The Costanera Highway is one of the most beautiful drives anywhere with the jungle covered mountains coming right down to the beach. This is not a walk to beach property. We look down on everyone below who has to have A/C all night while we are 72 degrees every night all year! All that for 10-15 min drive up with great views along the way.
