House on the edge of the Rainforest Preserve with pool/spa, air conditioning in bedrooms and optional 2-room Luxury Tent on the adjacent viewing platform. Internet available at the house. Located within the Rain Forest Preserve on
a private 5 acres lot. Straight down Mango Manor road and across the Costanera highway you will find the famous Dominical surf beach. There is a waterfall within the Preserve and I will help you locate many hidden waterfall jewels in the area. GREAT house for one or two families with teenage kids to enjoy as there are 3 distinct living spaces: upstairs, downstairs & the tent platform. It is a small house, but packs a lot of privacy.
The ocean and great surf beach of Dominical are just a 15 minute walk down the hill.This amazing new house and tent platform has easy access to all of the amenities offered by the southern zone: great wildlife, the beach, fantastic restaurants, day excursions.
30 foot waterfall with pool below within walking distance. Special breakfast 'Mirador' overlooking the big Pacific just a 5 minute walk away.
A yoga retreat center is located within the Rainforest Preserve. Please check for retreat dates.
Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: I fell so in love with this country that I mortgaged my house here in Colorado to buy the land at the Rainforest Preserve in 2006, and then I also bought a reforestation farm about 30 min. from the Preserve. I built the house there in December 2011.
Why the Owner Chose Dominical: Awake to the sounds of the jungle and see the Tucans fly into 'Tucan tree' right in front of your eyes shortly after dawn. See the top of the canopy and animals like the Pizotes or white faced monkeys wondering around below.
Canopy Vista is up the mountain 6 switchbacks, and this affords greater safety away from the public beach, and is only a 15-20 minute walk or a 5 minute drive down to the famous Dominical surf beach.
There are lots of places to walk within the Preserve, including the big ocean overlook ('the Miradore'), and our community orchard, and a waterfall.
The house has incredible views of the Preserve on 3 sides and a small view of the ocean. The house is new as of 2011, has lots of windows and a great ocean breeze.
Bedrooms can be air conditioned individually. High speed internet available at the house, and IMAC computer may be checked out. The computer also has lots of movies and music. There is also a small TV monitor with Apple TV in the downstairs room.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Easy access to the beach, the town of Dominical, and all of the local attractions. Easy to bird-watch or see butterflies right from the house. Paraglide launchplace nearby. Big tent available for extra guests or teens 13 or above. Pool, Wifi, air conditioning.
