Property description

Are you looking for a place to get excited about? Welcome to Flying Toucans... where the sights and sounds of wildlife, open-air tropical living and unforgettable views have all been captured in one special place.
(visit flyingtoucans.com)

Enjoy reading the reviews about this luxurious Costa Rican Villa situated on a picturesque point on the southern Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. With lots of surrounding jungle, you have all the exclusive privacy needed to enjoy your home in peace...with the exception of some noisy visitors. Yes, the monkeys and the toucans can sound off at any time without first introducing themselves.
Superbly located in Costa Rica's Maritime Zone (within 200 meters of the shoreline), Flying Toucans is one of the very few luxury home rentals in the area that is on the ocean side of the main coastal road. This unique location combines breathtaking views of jungle-clad mountains, sandy beaches, and the tranquil Pacific Ocean with quick, level, convenient 2wd access all year long to shopping, activities and restaurants. If you like beaches, you are in luck as we have an abundance nearby. From the villa, take a short hike down to the point and discover two secluded beaches (one with its own 35' waterfall) or jump in your car and within two minutes be exploring miles of footstep-free sand.
The living and dining rooms offer the romance of open-air tropical living, blending the comforts of home with the nearness of wildlife. The living room or kitchen are great central locations to gather and enjoy all that Flying Toucans has to offer. Plenty of seating for everyone. Don't be surprised if a hummingbird or butterfly cruises through making a cameo appearance.
The large fully-equipped kitchen, with its' beautiful custom cabinetry, and casual eating area is integrated with the living room and the views beyond. Whip up a smoothie or a six course meal...your choice.
Did we mention the pool? Once in, you'll never want to get out of the infinity-edge pool. Just three steps from the villa, the turquoise tile blends into the dazzling coastline and the popular Uvita 'Whale's Tail', a unique place to walk and explore. It overlooks Ballena (which means 'whale') beach National Marine Park so keep your eyes open for Humpback whales and Bottle-Nosed dolphins.
There is a half bath downstairs as well as a laundry room with full-sized washer and dryer.
Two well-furnished air-conditioned master suites are located upstairs. (King bed in one, Queen and Double in other). Each of the suites incorporates the use of local precious hardwoods for the doors and vaulted ceilings. Relax in the comfort of air conditioning or open the windows and let the ocean breezes in. Too comfortable to get out of bed? Fine, enjoy the views from your pillow... now if you could just get someone to bring you breakfast!
Spacious bathrooms feature tumbled Colombian limestone showers and an openness that continues to let the outdoors in while providing all the privacy needed.
You will love taking advantage of the spacious terrace upstairs. It's perfect for wildlife viewing, whale watching, stargazing, photography, sunrises and sunsets, or just dozing off in the comfy hammock. Surrounding the villa are exotic heliconias, a variety of fragrant gingers, exotic palms, birds-of-paradise, fruit trees etc... not only for your enjoyment but to attract our fine feathered friends. Discover a flower you've never seen before or a flowery scent. Where is it coming from?
Been looking awhile for that perfect place for your special upcoming occasion? Eureka, you've found it! We look forward to hearing from you soon and having you as our guests at Flying Toucans. :) John and Mary

Car: Recommended

The area between Dominical and Uvita on the southern Pacific coast is famous for its striking landscape where the mountains come right down to the water. Not subject to the north's dry, dusty season during the months of December to April, visitors to the Dominical region will enjoy the year-round greenery and lushness of jungles and forests.

While the rural airport in Quepos (30 minutes north of Flying Toucans) may be used, many guests choose to begin their adventure from the main international airport in San Jose (SJO) thus allowing them to see the varied landscape on the way down. The drive down to the villa is 3 hours, not including how many times you stop to take in the awesome views en route. Flying Toucans is six miles south of Dominical on a perfect road. If you can ever pull yourself away from the villa and view you will find abundant choices of dining, shopping, and activities close by.

Other Activities: Ziplines, nature treks, kayaking tours, white water rafting, atv tours

Golf: Besides the new golf course there's LOTS to do around here: Bird and animal watching, surfing, swimming, beach-combing, hiking, horseback tours to beaches and waterfalls, zip lines, day trips to Quepos and Manuel Antonio National Park, butterfly farm, serpentaria (snake exhibition), ultra-light flightseeing tours, sport fishing.

About an hour north of us is Quepos (Manuel Antonio National Park). The casual village of Dominical offers international and local style dining, a bank/ATM, a bakery, small grocery stores, an English-speaking doctor and dentist, pharmacy, real estate offices, souvenir shops, internet cafe, surfboard rentals and visitor information and booking services for local activities. A 2-minute walk from the villa is a small and beautiful European hotel with fine dining and full spa services. The villages of Uvita and Bahia, 6 miles south, offer internet, shops, restaurants, beaches, boat tours, a butterfly farm and the lovely Ballena National Park, home of the 'Whale Tail' (as is seen from Flying Toucans). Obviously absent from our corner of the world are large numbers of tourists, suits/ties/pantyhose and traffic lights... come see for yourself!

 

Owner info

About the owner: Greetings from our villa called Flying Toucans! We first visited Costa Rica in November of 1998 on our honeymoon. Having both lived on Maui for many years and traveled extensively internationally, we were interested in a new adventure and a memorable challenge. We had read about the country for several years prior to our visit and it sounded as though Costa Rica fit all of our criteria. After exploring the various regions of the country, meeting the people and having a delightful time we knew we were destined to relocate. As it happened, on this first trip, we discovered this one-of-a-kind property and purchased it. This set in motion our plans of eventually relocating. After more preparation, we made the move and actually lived in a tent on the property for several months while designing Flying Toucans. This allowed us to understand how best to showcase the awesome views and the wildlife while combining luxury with tropical living. Now that Flying Toucans has become a reality, we offer to share it with you. With years of experience in the luxury tourism industry, we believe we have created a truly unique beautiful place for you to call home while you embark on your own adventures. If you have been looking and looking for that special destination you will never forget, you have found it! Hope to see you here soon, :) John and Mary Reilly

Why the Owner Chose Dominical:
Simple compare the view, the privacy, the pool, the open air living design, the wildlife, the proximity to the ocean, the easy access, read the reviews, but don't wait too long to decide as the calendar fills well in advance!
