Dominical house description

Welcome to CASA DE LA SELVA 'The Jungle House'

If you are looking for an isolated, yet elegant rental for your perfect vacation away from home, this Jungle House in Costa Rica will be ideal. Located in Escaleras on the Pacific Coast between Dominical and Uvita, where the mountains meet the ocean, this upscale, private residence offers all the amenities of a luxurious get-away.

Only minutes from the nearest beach and one and a half kilometers off the paved Costanera Highway onto a private little road, you will likely see white-faced monkeys (mono cara blanca in Spanish), howler monkeys (mono congo), toucans, parrots, hummingbirds, and a variety of other unusual wildlife.

The house was built by an American designer and is carefully nestled in pristine primary rainforest, with a nice ocean view. The great room (as do most rooms) overlooks a pool and outdoor entertainment area. The large dining room area may be formally set for dinner or you may simply prefer to dine poolside surrounded by the jungle with a great view of the Pacific Ocean. All rooms in the Jungle House have sliding glass doors allowing sunlight to fill each space. The kitchen is modernly equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, large refrigerator, ice maker, gas range, as well as cookware and cutlery for all your culinary creations.

Comfortably sleeping eight people, The Jungle House has a master bedroom with vaulted ceiling, inlaid sustainable hardwood floor & air conditioning, walk-in closet and French doors to a private terrace. The second bedroom in the master suite doubles as an office/den (also air conditioned). In the 'green season,' the waterfall on this side of the property may be gently heard to put you to sleep.

The guest wing is spaciously separate with two bedrooms and bath, its own efficiency kitchen, sitting area, and private terrace as well. If you look carefully, you should see the resident sloth from here. All baths are tiled and elegantly appointed.

The property is only minutes to a good selection of restaurants ranging all the way from fine dining to laid back Costa Rican 'sodas' and there are several farmers markets which feature local grown organic produce, meats, cheeses, breads and of course seafood which take place on a weekly basis in the area.
As well, we are located just minutes from great activities like horse back waterfall tours, guided wildlife viewing, whale watching, inshore and deep sea fishing, diving, surf tours & lessons, zip lining and even hang gliding.

                      Why the Owner Chose Dominical:
                      We fell in love with the pristine primary rainforest setting and the stunning view of the pacific. We got a really good feeling about the property the first time we saw it and many of our friends, family and guests have said the same thing. The general area is also a great place to be with a friendly community feel and a lively cultural and culinary scene.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The fact that the property is a secluded retreat without another house in sight yet convenient to all the amenities makes it unique. The architectural design of the home is also rather unique, allowing great airflow and natural light throughout and the perfect use of space makes it an elegant and comfortable home to relax or entertain in. We are also the closest house to the beach on our part of the mountain.
