At an elevation of 500m (1,500 ft.), there is a constant breeze that keeps the air fresh and the temperature pleasant.

Photos of the house and grounds can only begin to give you a glimpse of the wonders that await you here. Once you feel refreshed, adventure waits around every bend.
Try an exhilarating zip line tour at nearby Hacienda Baru or ride horses through primary rainforest at Nauyaca Falls. The beach town of Dominical, a world famous surf spot, and uniquely bohemian Costa Rica town lies just 10 miles south down the Coastal hwy.
Manuel Antonio National Park lies just to the north,and the amazing deserted beaches of Playa Matapalo are directly in front of the property. (2 kilometers)
There are countless tourist amenities within a short drive from the property, which affords visitors endless opportunities to enjoy a true Costa Rica experience.
The villa comfortably sleeps 8 people in 4 rooms. Completed in November, 2007 by Patrick Heinen of HEG Engineering, Costa Rica's premier home builder, Vista Del Sol provides over 2400 sq/ft of luxurious living on 2 levels and a brand new (2014) oasis-style swimming pool and 1000 sq/ft outdoor patio that accommodates spectacular sunset ocean views every day of the year.
This home is new on the market for rentals and has been used exclusively as a family vacation home until now 9/14. We have another home on the property that we have been renting for the last few seasons (VRBO 448824) so that you may see from our perfect 5 star rating that we are committed to making sure our guests have a memorable 1st class vacation.
4 wheel drive is an absolute must for any Costa Rica adventures. We have a very steep 200 meter approach on the dirt public road leading to our home that can be very intimidating to drivers with little off road experience. Most roads in the southern zone of Costa Rica are not paved, and conditions can change with the weather, so a 4 x 4 is the only way to ensure smooth travels. Experienced local taxi drivers and small shuttle buses (12 passengers) have no problems reaching our property. So please rent a 4 x 4, or hire a professional driver!
Vista Del Sol has almost every amenity you can think of, and if there is something else you require, our good friend and property concierge Marlon Rodriguez will arrange it for you; private chef, massage, tours, drivers, the sky is the limit.
Marlon will meet all guests upon arrival at the house for a welcoming introduction and walk through tour of the estate as well as answer any questions they may have about the area. Marlon is from the Dominical area, and has all the connections and contacts to arrange just about anything your heart desires....moreless
