Rent this beautiful 2011-built house with pool/spa, flower gardens, wifi and great cell phone reception. The house has air conditioning in the bedrooms.
It is located in the Rain Forest Preserve just above the town of Dominical. The house is just up the hillside from the famous Dominical surf beach and has easy access to shopping, restaurants, surfing and surf lessons. You may pre-arrange with the owner and caretaker for catered meals. Take the short hike to you very own private waterfall/pool within the Preserve.
This amazing house has huge views of the 1000-acre Rain Forrest canopy from either the wraparound deck or the adjacent large yoga deck. Tucans come to visit most mornings as you lounge in the pool. Have breakfast on the upper deck as you listen to the jungle awakening and see the butterflies and other wildlife come awake. Take a 5-minute walk from the house and you will arrive at the community-owned covered “mirador”. This beautiful covered deck has tables and chairs where you can sit and watch the sun go down, enjoy the big ocean views, and be on the lookout for migrating humpback wales.
It is simple to book tours and adventures. For example, you may wish to go horseback riding on the beach, try snorkeling at Canyo Island, do a zipline tour at Hacienda Baru, visit the big amazing Nayuaca Waterfalls, go scuba diving in the Osa, see live reptiles get fed at Reptilandia, try paragliding or do a bird watching tour. The owner is happy to send you a customized set of recommendations.
This house is perfect for 2 couples to share as the upper and lower levels have separate entrances and bathrooms. Families with teens may request set up of the luxury tent to provide a 3rd living space. Upper & lower levels have setups for movies songs in the IMAC computer and AppleTV
The house is generally not well suited for young children or toddlers due to the layout. The house has 1 master bedroom upstairs with bath, full kitchen, and deck. The downstairs is accessible by the outside staircase and has a bedroom with1 queen and 1 single bed, private bath and it’s own kitchenette area with microwave, 2-burner range-top & cooler.

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.
