                          About: At Elite Destination Homes we bring family & friends together in some of the world’s most inspiring vacation homes. Our luxury rental villas are stunning, comfortable properties located in highly sought after destinations across the globe. We handpick our homes based on their distinctive features and the care given to them by their owners.

                          Why Dominical:
                          I don’t think life could have been more perfect during our stay in Costa Rica. Casa La Big Sur is just so private and secluded. It’s easy to get lost in the beauty around you. Everyday I walked out from the living room onto the patio to see literally miles of mesmerizing coastline views. I even enjoyed my morning workout as the fitness area is located outside on the upper terrace.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          * Extraordinary indoor/outdoor living experience * Views of 60 miles of coastline * Lofty spaciousness of 30' ceilings in central great room * Total privacy and security in a privileged enclave
