  • Awesome Place!

    "This was my family's fourth time in the Dominical area and we found this place to be very well suited to our needs. We chose this place over others we had previously rented mainly due to the outstanding view. It lived up to the pictures. The house is exactly as pictured and during our time there the temperature was very comfortable. We had a great time and I would highly recommend this rental."

  • Amazing big family trip!

    "It may be hard to imagine 11 family members in the same house for 10 days having a wonderful time. Yet the Rain Forest Lodge made that possible. We took advantage of the newly completed tent platform that includes its own private shower and toilet so that each of the four family units had their own sleeping space and privacy. It was absolutely perfect! Each morning we had coffee on the upper deck, watching and listening to the abundance of wildlife while enjoying a spectacular view overlooking the rain forest and the Pacific Ocean. Howler and Capuchin monkeys, toucans, vultures, iguanas and more were present every day. The pool (the best babysitter ever) was wonderful and especially enjoyed by the grandkids! The lodge was great for cooking for a large group with two kitchens, one at ground level and one on the upper level, and a dining area with a large table that seated all of us. The caretaker and his family live 3 minutes away and were extremely helpful in answering questions and maintaining the pool and lodge. When we could tear ourselves away from the lodge and our relaxing mornings, we ventured out to discover fabulous beaches, national parks, a wildlife sanctuary, restaurants, waterfalls, zip lines, a snorkel tour, surfing lessons and more. We plan to return again and can’t recommend the Rain Forest Preserve Lodge more highly."

  • Vistas Infinitas . . . Say's it All!

    "Upon our late arrival, we were greeted with a big smiling welcome from Nickie (house manager), who showed us around your beautiful home! It was more magnificent than depicted on the website, extremely well appointed, kitchen fully equipped and comfortable beds! Every detail thought of, the fans, lighting, books, etc. The landscaping around the home was full of tropical foliage with landscape lighting at night actuating the lipstick palms to bougainvillea framing in the view of the Pacific Ocean from the porch! My wife and I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary with another couple and your home provided the perfect setting! Each morning began with gazing at the ocean as the sun rose revealing the colors of the flora of the surrounding mountains . . . after breakfast we explored the country, Quepos Fiera (Saturday), Hacienda Baru (nature trail and zip line), Manuel Antonio, the Organic Fiera in San Isidro (Tuesday's), and afternoon's in the pool (very private), until the rains refreshed earth, then the sunsets, what more can I say! We had visits from Toucan's, Humming Bird's and the resident frogs, a real treat! Showering using the outdoor shower, before dinner each night was Pura Vita with orchids peeping over the rail and the mountain side was the shower curtain! The broad selection of reference books gave insight to the birds, animals and culture of Costa Rica! We were so into the outside world that we didn't turn on the satellite TV at all. WiFi handled data transfer with no problem, and annoying bugs were virtually non existent at that altitude. 4x4 recommended, drive slow and look for wildlife! Nickie was a great help and wonderful to share when, where and what about Costa Rica . . . Perfect pick for us, thank you for sharing your home!"

  • Magical and Serene Vacation!

    "Wow. Wow. Wow. What an amazing place!!! If you are looking for a serenity spot in Southern Costa Rica...this is paradise. Our family of 3 (mid 40-something's and our 10 year old daughter) had an amazing time @ Villa Baha. From the moment we approached the gate until the moment we left we felt so safe, comfortable and spoiled... we almost felt like owners... (or maybe that is wishful thinking). The house was perfect for a small family. We cooked in nightly and found the kitchen to be well equipped. We ate in the dining room... doors open, candles lit. We never used the upstairs tv room as we spent most of our time outside. Although our daughter was on her ipad often. The grounds are just beautiful. Each day brought newness to our adventure - new birds, animals, flowers, fruit. Such a variety of plants, flowers, trees... My day would start early at sunrise and I would open the house... Coffee in hand, you just sit outside and watch the world wake up. Perfect. Evenings were the same - sunsets spectacular. We stayed in the pool most days. Found the yellow chairs a perfect spot for evening cocktails and conversation. We left the property a few times (as the drive up and down the mountain was rougher than normal due to dry weather) and we needed to be committed to it.. We went zip lining @ Hacienda Baru and to the Osa Mountain Animal Sanctuary. We at @ the Beach in Dominical... but honestly - if you have groceries, you don't want or need to leave. Amy was a terrific hostess from afar. From the initial booking of the Villa, she provided us with tons of information regarding our trip and I asked A LOT of questions. She graciously assisted and went above and beyond. As someone who has rented 10+ homes a year for 5+ years on VRBO, I would rate this as our best experience to date. Pura Vida."
