"Our family absolutely loved the Rainforest Preserve house in Dominical! There were seven of us and we had plenty of room and more for all of us. We especially loved the outdoor kitchen, outdoor shower, and the pool. We discovered the sunset platform the last night we were there and wished we had found it earlier. The sights, sounds, and activities were amazing. I could have stayed another week. Everything was clean and if we ever needed anything, it was taken care of right away. Dahlip and Cindy were great about answering any questions and giving us suggestions on what to do. We enjoyed several different beaches, Manuel Antonio park, Osa Zipline, Nayuka Waterfall and a few local "soda's". I would recommend this to anyone that wants a secluded place, away from the hustle and bustle of resorts. I would stay here again if I could. Thank you for helping us have an amazing week in Dominical."

"We spent a week at Casa Mar Y Luna in late August and had a fantastic time. The house is perfectly located on a hill with spectacular views of the breaking waves along the coastline below. The house had lots of space for the 7 people in our group, with the outside deck being our favorite spot to hang out. Watching the sunset while sipping a cold drink as you cool off in the vanishing edge pool was the best way to end the day. Being surrounded by trees brought all of the wildlife right up to the house, with howler monkeys, sloths, toucans and vultures making daily visits.
The house location was close to beaches, waterfalls, restaurants, sightseeing, and anything else you'd want to do in Costa Rica.
The hostess, Tiffany, made the whole place even more spectacular. Her joyful personality and fantastic knowledge of all things Costa Rica were a real benefit to the property. And she knows her way around a kitchen, too. She cooked us a few delicious local meals as part of our reservation.
We would definitely recommend this as an awesome rental property."

"This was our first time visiting Costa Rica and from the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were in paradise. Casa Las Terrazas is stunning - clean and comfortable with everything one could need to have a relaxing vacation (including a blender for frozen rum drinks!). The house was workable for 3 couples, including 4 children - the 2 boys slept on an air mattress on the second level landing floor. The property is very private and extremely well kept - and the views are so much more impressive than the pictures capture. Our favorite place to hang out was the gazebo overlooking the Whale's Tail. Even in the hot weather, there was always a comfortable breeze under the shady canopy - a perfect place to enjoy a slushy rum punch and a good book.
A couple points worth mentioning... 1. A 4X4 is a MUST. While most of the roads are paved, the road up to house is packed dirt with lots of bumps and steep inclines. One couple had arranged for a 4X4 and when they arrived to pick up the car they were told there were no 4X4s available. They were given a Toyota Corolla. While they did make it up the hill - an adventure in the best circumstances - it was a close thing. They ended up not using the car at all until they were able to exchange it for a 4X4 half way through our vacation. 2. There is a fabulous pub less than a half mile from the house - "The Jolly Roger". We were there regularly for their AMAZING wings (over 20 different flavors) and storm fries. DO NOT MISS THIS!
Prior to our arrival I worked with Stephen to schedule all our tours, no mean feat when you have 3 families to plan around. He was most helpful, extremely responsive, and patient with all my questions and and various needs to accommodate 10 people. When we arrived in Dominical he was waiting for us at his shop and personally escorted us up to the property. He gave us a brief tour, efficiently worked through the administrative stuff, and recommended some local places for food and souvenirs, including the Jolly Roger (THANK YOU STEPHEN!). We had a few issues during our stay, but they were handled promptly and courteously - Stephen was immediately responsive to all our needs.
We've all unanimously agreed that we would return to both Dominical and Casa Las Terrazas. Thank you for a wonderful vacation... Pura Vida!"
