Dominical villa description
BRAND NEW LISTING – Rates are quoted as a three bedroom, however, you can rent it as a 1 bedroom (23% discount) or 2 bedroom (13% discount). Last minute specials too when arrival is less than 20 days. Send inquiry for discounted rates. Great value for one or two couples or a small family not needing all three bedrooms. Has a queen in one room and (2) twins in the other two bedrooms.
In addition to being the only Canto del Mar villa with three full-sized bedrooms, Villa Casa Cresta Selva (#35) also has the largest covered patio in the gated community, twice as large as all others. There is plenty of room to entertain and great for a small wedding ceremony with a jungle/ocean background. The private pool is one of the larger ones in the development with lots of room for relaxing. The villa is located on the perimeter of the development and borders the primary jungle ridge taking advantage of jungle canopy while looking at the ocean. You will enjoy the best of both worlds - views and wildlife. Canto del Mar Casa Cresta Selva is the closest villa to the abandoned 4WD road / hiking trail that follows the ridge top and then drops down into the first inland valley, a great route for your morning walks or runs. The early risers usually are the ones that get to see the monkeys first. If you are up to it, you can do a complete circle hike/run that takes you to the beach and back up to the villa so you do not have to back track, but be sure to have some hill workouts before you arrive. Once you are back home you can lay around all day long with the resident iguana and chill for hours.
One of the best features of Canto del Mar Villas is the location being close to beaches and mountains, close but not to close to Dominical and Uvita plus high enough to catch the gentle breezes from the ocean and high mountains directly inland.
The three identically sized maser bedrooms each have their own private bathrooms plus there is a common area downstairs that could be used for an air mattress bed if required. Each bedroom also has it’s own private balcony looking into the gardens that provide up close encounters of the passing wildlife including hummingbirds and butterflies that are attracted to specially planted bushes that they love.
The rates are established based on the number of bedrooms required so if you are single or a couple, you will receive a 23% discount off the normal three-bedroom weekly rate when using just one of the bedrooms. Two couples or a small family using the two wo equally-sized bedrooms with private bathrooms each, will receive a 13% discount off the three bedroom rate. The rates are automatically discounted for longer stays so the daily rate is reduced the longer you stay. If you arriving within 20 days, then ask about our “procrastinators discount” and if within a week then the even better “spur of the moment” discount. And be sure when you are comparing rates of other places in the area that it is mangos to mangos – these rates include the tax and post cleaning. For visits of 7 nights or more, a mid-visit tidy-up cleaning is provided as part of the rate. Plus you will have access to our concierge service to ensure you are directed to the right places and that your questions are answered accurately and timely.
Casa Cresta Selva is located overlooking the mile-long Playa Dominicalito in Dominical, Costa Rica, noted for being one of the calmest beaches in the area but lose to several experienced surfers destination beaches. From the patio and all rooms, there are spectacular ocean and white water views plus opportunities for wildlife viewing as close as the patio rails where monkeys have been reported showing off. It is unique from the other 33 vacation villas in this secure gated community due to location and size. Villa #35 is very private because it is located at the edge of the rainforest at the top of the ridge.
You will have the opportunity to see monkeys, toucans, the occasional sloth and many varieties of birds, plus iguanas just to name a few of our local residents. You could not ask for a better location as home base for all the activities there are to play and natural places to visit from Ojochal and Sirpe to the south (really more to the east) and Manuel Antonio NP / Quepos to the north, not to mention inland to San Isidro. Within this area of easily reachable day-trips or even half-day trips are three popular National Parks (technically four if you count the boat tours to the northern edge of Corcovado). Chirrpo National Park has a trail that reaches to the top of the highest point of Costa Rica not too far away. Reservations are required. Additionally, we have had guests drive the 90 minutes to the Los Suenos Marriott to play a round of golf for the day but if that is too far there is a 9-hole golf course about 25 minutes to the south. Ask me for my vacation planning information that will make your trip planning much more easier, plus you will not miss any of the “must do’’s” while you are here. Trip Advisor’s “Dominical Dave” will be available to answer all you questions about the local area and beyond.
The community of Canto del Mar, offers close access to a chain of unspoiled individually unique beaches (and a couple secret ones we share with our guests), some with miles of sand and even one with caves that go into the surf. You can walk to the one below the villa if you don’t mind the walk back up. There is 24-hour security with a guarded entrance and additional coverage at night. At 300 feet above sea level, you will be looking almost straight down on the surf below, and a bay with small fishing boats and beginner to intermediate surfers showing up a few hours before high tide every day. The villa is enjoys a nice sea breeze throughout the day and cool mountain breeze throughout the night filtered by the surrounding trees in the jungle. When you need a break from the pool, head down to Posa Azul about 1 km away, the local waterfall with a natural swimming pool complete with a rope swing. Swim under the falls for a free water massage.Many times you will have the place to yourself. The villa is located just 3 Km (1.8 miles) from the town of Dominical with its grocery stores, restaurants, bars, a bank and places to buy souvenirs, including the vendors under the palm-lined beach that you go to them (and they do not go to you pura vida style). For larger supermarkets, a few more banks and additional restaurants, plus Ballena National Park you only need to go about 12 Km south to Uvita. On Saturday morning the Farmer’s Market is open until noon and Thursday you can go to San Isidro to visit the largest covered Farmer’s market in the country. Talk about fresh and ready to cook – you will not find fruit and vegetables fresher anywhere else in the world.
The fully furnished vacation home has gardens surrounding it with planters placed in some of the trees to allow our guests to enjoy the fauna that is so abundant in this part of Costa Rica, known as the gateway to the Osa Peninsula. Don’t be fooled by the “rainy season” between May and November because you will most likely wake up to blue skies and have clear sunny weather until about 3 pm when the tropical rains come to bring its life-given moisture to the jungle. After a while the stars appear and it starts all over the next day like clockwork. It is the time of year many of the locals enjoy more than the December to April period when hardly a drop of rain falls. Fortunately, unlike the northern part of the country, we remain green due to the moisture received the other part of the year.
A land line phone is available to guests to order a pizza or some authentic Italian food prepared by a culinary school trained Italian cook that you can bring your meal home or have them come to the villa to cook a private dinner for you and your friends or family. The third bedroom has it’s own private entrance near the pool. A washer and dryer, dishwasher, ice maker in the frig and A/C, and a fully equipped kitchen allow you to enjoy all the comforts of home in the middle of the rainforest/jungle.
If Casa Cresta Selva (#35) is not large enough for your group, I can arrange to accommodate parties up to 42 or more all located within Canto del Mar with the villas I manage, but you will need to book early. So reserve Casa Cresta Selva for you and make arrangements for your extended family or friends to be close by. I will be glad assist in the planning of reunions, weddings and large family get togethers. Some have pools and some do not.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Great escape from the hectic life in the city with all the attributes of everything Costa Rica has to offer except a nearby volcano which is better to visit and not be in your backyard.
