Dominical villa description

Villa Bahá is 4,000 square feet of contemporary Mexican Country-style living space thoughtfully integrated into the rugged jungle of Costa Rica. Exuberant tropical gardens enhance the dramatic white water views of the Pacific Ocean and the serene valley vistas.

Immediately upon entering the gated driveway of this 11-acre property, situated 1,000 feet above sea level, you know that you have arrived at an exceptional destination. The scent of ylang ylang and the sounds of nature welcome you to your home away from home. Bougainvillea, helaconia, and ginger provide tropical color and graceful palms and bamboo sway in the breezes.

Built in 2001 and recently updated inside and out, the main house at Villa Bahá is entered though a colorful butterfly and hummingbird garden featuring a Mexican-wall fountain. The interior is dominated by a dramatic, curved staircase which leads to the upper floors. The first floor rooms flow in an open, airy manner and are decorated with an eclectic mix of classic, Mexican and antique furnishings enhanced with dramatic lighting and architectural details. The living room comfortably seats six and is suitable for reading, family games or surfing the internet. An entertainment armoire contains a TV with satellite Sky TV and DVD/CD/MP3 player. Beyond the living room, the kitchen and dining room share the captivating view of the Pacific Ocean. The large, cook-friendly kitchen is playfully decorated with colorful, hand-painted Mexican talavera tiles on the countertops and cooking island and equipped with all that you might require to prepare and serve anything from salsa and chips to a full holiday meal. The dining room features a soaring, 20-foot beamed ceiling and French doors which open to the ocean view veranda beyond.

The lushly landscaped outdoor spaces are the true focal points of daily life at Villa Bahá. The swimming pool features both a 40-foot swim lane for exercise and graceful, wide steps for fun and relaxation. Swimmers will appreciate the gentle, eco-friendly salt chlorination system. Although it is possible to spend the entire day either dining in the shade while enjoying the expansive Pacific Ocean view or watching the peaceful and inspiring parade of wildlife from the pool area in its comfortable chaises and lounge chairs, just around the corner is an equally delightful outdoor space. On the kitchen veranda and its adjacent stone patio, guests can sip coffee while listening to the hypnotic sounds of the nearby cascading, hand-carved Mexican fountain and enjoy its peaceful tropical garden backdrop. A colorful mural painted by a local artist enlivens this space, which is also used for ping pong and grilling.

The private and serene, ocean and garden view master suite, furnished with a king size bed, is also situated on the first floor. A screened door allows nighttime breezes in and also gives private access to the rear veranda and pool area, perfect for late night swims under star-filled skies. The modern, spa-styled master bathroom features travertine tile, dual vessel sinks and an ocean and garden-view shower.

The entire second floor easily serves as an additional master suite for a second couple. The bedroom contains a queen size bed, writing desk, and built-in closets. French doors lead to a private veranda and terrace with views of the surrounding mountain ridges and valleys. Within the sounds of both of Villa Bahá’s Mexican fountains, outdoor furnishings and potted plants make this area a charming, romantic spot for quiet morning coffee or evening drinks. The full bathroom features more Mexican tile and a rainforest mural. The second floor media room has comfortable lounge seating for viewing TV and movies (with Satellite SkyTV and DVD/VCR). Sliding doors provide access to another rooftop terrace with oceans views, ideal for private sunning. Stairs from this terrace lead to the upper roof which contains the villa's solar panels and a terrace, for a 360 degree, bird's-eye view of this glorious property and its surroundings.

For groups requiring more than two bedrooms, Villa Bahá can be expanded to suit your needs. The 2nd-floor media room can be reconfigured to serve as a third bedroom with two twin beds or a queen size Aerobed.

Villa Baha’s gardens have been designed to attract and support a large variety of wildlife. Colorful toucans and blue morpho butterflies are among our daily visitors. Dozens of species of birds, white-faced monkeys, pizotes, iguanas and fascinating insects are regulars. Villa Bahá is located in the safe and friendly, residential area of Lagunas de Barú, just outside of Dominical. Houses dot the finger ridges of Lagunas, providing a sense of community while still maintaining total privacy. Our bi-lingual property manager is very close by, ready to greet you and assist you as necessary during your stay.

Villa Bahá and its tranquil interrelationship with the ocean and rainforest can be the focal point of your visit with short trips to Dominical and surrounding towns for supplies, or it can serve as your base of operations for an active, adventure-filled exploration of the South Pacific coast of Costa Rica. The choice is yours. Please visit our website for more information about Villa Bahá and begin planning your adventure in Costa Rica today.
