Escaleras villa description
Many people coming to Dominical think that the best rental would be on the beach. Fact is that it is hot and the mosquito and sand fleas are abundant, no breeze and the smell of the diesel trucks will surely wake you up in the morning. Up in the mountain there is a nice breeze, bugs are at a minimum and it will be the howler monkeys that wake you up in the morning. CASA DE CINEMA. Located 1000' in the Escaleras Mountains is this lovely private house overlooking the Pacific Ocean. One bedroom has a king size water bed and ceiling fan. The other bedroom has a single bed and a double bed with air conditioning. A 32 inch TV with a huge library of DVD's is available for those rainy days. And there is a very comfortable porch with eating area, couch and hammock. A 1/3 mile cement trail goes thru the rainforest. Close by is Dominical's only movie theater showing classic films every Friday night during the dry season (December thru April) Free admission for guests. Just a few blocks up the road is the Belle Vista Riding stable for a fun adventure in the mountains and a gallop on the beach. Down the road is the famous Pozo Azul waterfall and swimming hole. A delight for gringos and Ticos. The secluded beach at Playa Dominicalito is only 1.2 miles from the house and we're 3 miles from the center of Dominical.

Cinema Paradisimo in the rain forest jungle
Travel companion called it paradise, beautiful setting a thousand feet above the Pacific. Tremendous hospitality while completely respectful of privacy. Two bedroom, two baths. wrap around veranda/casita with well placed hammock. private adult pool, perfect for frequent refreshers. Beautiful beaches nearby. Great food @ local restaurants. All services and shopping within 15-30 minutes. Parks, with hiking, light climbing, swimming (ocean & fresh water waterfall) and zip-lining nearby. History, wildlife, flora & fauna, geography information in fun environments. activities at all levels. Very media rich environment with full cinema at top professional standards, as well as dvds systems in guest house. Exceptional media/film library with great sound systems. Diverse library. Relaxing, refreshing, informal, accessible. You do want a 4x4 for the final ascent,especially in the rainy season when we visited. Thanks Toby & Kim,.

??Outstanding Reviewed on: 03/07/2013 for their stay in 02/2013 274486 - CASA DE CINEMA - overlooking Pacific Ocean Casa De Cinema was absolutely wonderful and inexpensive. This was the first time we had rented a house so I was a little unsure, it turned out to be much more than we expected. It was very private, yet close to Dominical, beaches and many activities. The owners were very nice, and were closely available if needed. Watching the sunsets from the Cinema was breathtaking. This was our third trip to Costa Rica and Casa De Cinema was by far the best lodging we have had. I have told many of our friends that this is the place to stay!?

?Secluded Honeymoon Reviewed by: Sun Seekers from Ketchikan, Alaska Reviewed on: 03/07/2013 for their stay in 01/2013 274486 - CASA DE CINEMA - overlooking Pacific Ocean My husband & I spent 3 w?eeks in January at Casa de Cinema and it was the best vacation we ever had. Everything we could possibly need was supplied with the house, which was decorated in warm colors and had the feeling of being in your own home. The pool was wonderful. One of the best parts was the privacy, making our stay feel like a 3 week honeymoon. I rose every morning to watch the sky lighten and the birds and monkeys of the jungle awaken and start their day. The gardens and jungle abound in beauty. The road up to the Casa was in good shape for our visit although a 4-wheel drive is needed for the steep inclines. But it's less than a 10 minute drive down to the highway. The pool, altho wonderful for us is an ad?ult pool, over 4' deep through out so it may not be appropriate for small kids. This was our 4th trip to Costa Rica and the first time we rented a house for our stay. We enjoyed this casita so much, that we had days when we never left. We will definitely plan our next visit with the availability of this rental. ?????

4 stars Private Jungle Paradise. Reviewed by: Paul & Melody. from Calgary, Canada. Reviewed on: 03/23/2013 for their stay in 02/2013 274486 - CASA DE CINEMA - overlooking Pacific Ocean My girlfriend and I stayed at this property for two weeks in March 2013. The house itself was wonderful; lots of space, well-furnished, and even better looking than in the photos. There is an expansive view of the ocean and the countryside from the deck and the sunsets are breathtaking. Toby and Kim were always present when we needed advice or information and were a pleasure to deal with. The location of the house is very close to Dominical and a short drive to Uvita. We found numerous amazing restaurants in the area and were spoiled for choice. To get to the property you will have to drive about 10 minutes up a steep dirt road, but the view and seclusion are well worth it. We would definitely stay here again.

What a bargain this was! A very private location up in the mountain but only 1.5 miles from the most secluded beach we ever saw. Also a nice 1/3 mile cement walking trail in the rainforest. And just a few blocks from a riding stable. The owners put on a pot luck dinner and show movies in the nearby theater on Friday nights for the town during the dry season. We had the best time staying here!!.
