About Villa Ventanas:

This brand new 6500 square foot luxury home in Dominical, Costa Rica is situated 200 meters from the beach in the tropical rain forest with dramatic ocean views and soft ocean sounds from every room. Just steps away from the beach, remarkable white water Pacific Ocean views can be seen from every room, and the relaxing sound of the surf gently permeates the environment, creating a very relaxing, natural atmosphere.

The Great Room is the hub of the house with two wings extending from opposite ends, and featuring 25 foot ceilings that make this room truly great. The Great Room is spacious and airy, adorned with over sized lounging sofas, perfect for kicking up your feet and relaxing. The 20' tall sliding glass patio doors connect the great room with the covered patio area next to the pool, which can be opened up, connecting the great room with the patio/pool area. In the Great Room is the state of the art kitchen, featuring an island design with bar stools and plenty of room for cooking, serving and dining on the island counter top. The kitchen features stainless-steel appliances, Viking range and convection oven, over sized refrigerator, ample counter space, walk-in pantry, microwave, blender, cutlery, cookware, and stylish settings for up to 15 people.

Extending from the Great Room is the spacious covered patio that seamlessly blends with the infinity edge pool, with the ocean waves just beyond. The patio has 25' ceilings with large fans, a cozy sitting area, dining table that seats 12, and an outdoor grill. The pool deck has chaise lounge chairs and abundant sunning space. The large 7' deep pool has an infinity edge melding the pool and sea into one continuous span of tropical blue.

Connected to the Great Room are the north and south wings of the house, each with a master bedroom and bath upstairs, and two bedrooms downstairs (total of 6 bedrooms). Each wing is a mirror image of the other. Both consist of two bedrooms down stairs that share a central full bath and a laundry facility (total of two washers and dryers), and a master suite upstairs, with two private decks for each master suite (one ocean view and one jungle). The master bedrooms have walk in closets, luxurious bathrooms and balconies. Every bedroom has its own air condition unit and ceiling fan, allowing each guest to adjust the temperature to their liking.

Concierge Services:

Upon arrival our guests will be personally greeted and receive a full house orientation from our Concierge, who will be available throughout the stay to help with arrangements for special activities/tours, or arrange services such as in-house yoga, in-house messages, cooking, restaurant recommendations/reservations, surfing lessons or private beach tours with certified lifeguards (and lots more!). Our concierge will provide personalized service designed to make our guests' Costa Rica vacation as fun filed, convenient and memorable as possible.

About Dominical:

Dominical is the kind of place that people picture when they think about Costa Rica--a small beach/surf town dramatically situated where the towering rain forest mountains meet the ocean. It is the perfect setting for adventure or tranquility, relaxing with a good book, a stroll along the deserted beaches, or just hanging out by the beach or the pool. For a bit more adventure: hike the neighboring waterfalls, venture sea or river kayaking, raft the white water rapids, explore rain forest canopy zip lines, cruise ATV mountain trails, ride horseback, boating, sport fishing, snorkeling, SCUBA diving, and, of course, what Dominical is most well known for …Surfing! Beach breaks and point breaks dot the cost line making the area a well know, but seldom crowded, surf destination.

Our tropical climate has two distinct seasons, wet and dry. The dry season is filled with cloudless bright sunshiny days and clear starry nights. The wet season has brilliant mornings with welcomed cloud coverage in the afternoons. The rolling thunderheads and afternoon shower generally yield to amazing sunsets with fiery oranges illuminating every cloud. During the heaviest of the rainy season, the forest provides the perfect milieu for solitude, silence and inward reflection, coercing any tension out of the mind and body.

Villa Ventanas is the perfect setting for a romantic get-away, fun filled family adventures, intimate weddings, destination gatherings, and reunions of any kind. Daily 24 hour security, concierge, and house cleaning are provided. Laundry service, personal chef, massage therapist, manicure, pedicures, facial treatments, private yoga and exercise classes can be arranged.

Though it's 2 1/2 hours away from the capital city of San Jose´, Dominical is only a short 45 minute drive from the regional airport in Palmar Sur and 1/2 hour from Quepos. While retaining its small town charm the area offers a variety of restaurants, shopping, car rental agencies, and other conveniences.

Fabulous experience in Dominical

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in Dominical and staying at this beautiful villa. It was the perfect home base for our active gang. Junior and Sarah took great care of our whole group (two families with 6 kids, ranging in age from 7-19). Surfing ever day with Junior and his friends was the #1 highlight, and we also enjoyed a was a visit to the nearby animal rescue, the horseback-to-waterfall, white water rafting, and zip lining. We also did a solo waterfall exploration and beach day in a remote, beautiful spot. While at the house, the kids loved the pool, the ping pong table, and the various board games. We had chefs prepare breakfast for us, but there are so many great spots in Dominical, you really need to explore the town as much as you can while you are here. We were super comfortable and happy here--there are great spaces to gather but plenty of space to go do your own thing, too.

Amazing 30th Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

I decided to celebrate my 30th birthday in Costa Rica and in this AMAZING house. There was a total of 10 of us that all came and stayed in this amazing villa. The pictures of this house do not do it justice. Everything about this experience was way far beyond anything I could have ever imagined. Since my initial inquiry about booking this villa, Flora has been MORE than helpful with everything about anything I needed to know. From transportation to food to tours, Flora gave us details about everything and helped us book whatever we needed. Every single person that had a part in tending to the house was absolutely amazing. The cooks gave us exactly what we wanted and asked for, and wow was their cooking on point! The rooms of the house were amazing and very comfortable, that view overlooking the ocean was breathtaking, everything was seriously just so amazing. Dominical was also so lovely, not super touristy, but definitely a lot to do. All it was just such an amazing experience, one that I definitely will never forget. On top of it all what an amazing way to bring in the new year and celebrate another year of life! I would LOVE to come back and stay in this same villa.

A really neat house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We have visited Costa Rica five times, with our kids and grand kids, during the last eleven years. We have seen a lot of changes. Each time we have rented a house on VRBO. Two houses in Tambor, the same house in Manual Antonio twice, and now Flora's house in Dominical. Each has been fantastic, but this time might have been the best location. Dominical is what Manual Antonio was 11 years ago (although the roads are much better). Pull the cars up under the trees on any of the nine or ten great beaches that are with in ten km of the house and swim. Really good restaurants along the same stretch of road. As for the house everything was up to the highest standards. The design, the layout, and the staff are top notch. Sara the housekeeper/ manager is as they say never seen but always there when you need her. We want our trips to be a complete vacation for everybody, so Sara did our laundry for a very nominal charge. Kelly, the concierge,was out of town the first night, but we got to meet Jr her husband. If any of your group takes surfing lessens, talk to Jr. All of our guy and girls got up by the second time, and Jr's brothers, giving the lessens, entertained them for the full two hours. I think that was a major high light of the trip. Kelly for her part made every excursion a pleasure. If you want the full vacation experience get Kelly to line up Chef Tutu, and Chef Flora. We had them cook five dinners and five breakfasts for us. We had enough food for all the other meals. The charge was in line with the other houses we stayed in that included the cooks. A vacation for all. One last thing, make sure you visit Tortilla Flats and get Jr's other brother (he has six) to make the best Margarita you have ever had. All in all a great experience.

The Perfect House for the Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family of five and another family of 3 stayed at Flora's house over a school vacation. It was like a fantasy: the house is so beautiful in an unimaginably special and beautiful place. Dominical is totally unspoiled, not touristy, with beautiful places to discover and lovely people to meet. Our children (ages from 7 - 15) all had a blast - we spent the days in town, ziplining, horseback riding to the waterfalls, at the local beaches, swimming at the hidden waterholes, finding amazing restaurants We ended each afternoon in the pool, watching the spectacular sunsets, and enjoying having a chef come to cook for us. (Best salsa and guacamole ever!) Flora was lovely and so helpful, Kelley, the concierge was great, the chefs were fantastic. All in all it was the perfect vacation -- the perfect combination of adventure, relaxing, exploring. Great family time! We'd love to come back!

Location, Location, Location!

  • 5 of 5

As reflected in the title of my review, you cannot beat the location of this villa. Nestled in rainforest with panoramic views overlooking the pacific ocean. You can sit at the pool and watch the waves crash and white water rumble to shore while watching amazing sunsets, iguanas sunning in the trees, and toucans flying from branch to branch. The location for exploring all the best of southern Costa Rica has to offer is unbeatable too. Dominical is such a happening quaint surfer beach town with enough going on to keep anyone happy. There is a grocery store in Dominical but also a much bigger one in Uvita just 15min south. To the north is Manuel Antonio Park where we headed early one morning for a jungle hike along maintained trails. Saw 3 kinds of monkeys, 5 sloths, dear, raccoons with red tails, huge bugs ext.... then stopped at one of the beaches/lagoon areas in the park, swam and snorkeled the rest of the day. Just to the south of the home, Kelley the homes concierge, set us up with a snorkeling, dolphin and sea cave excursion out of Marino Ballena National Park. A different view of this beautiful country from the ocean looking inland, gorgeous! A great excursion that grandparents enjoyed too. Another excursion to the south Kelley set up for us that our teens and I loved was the zip lining through pristine rain forest of the Osa Peninsula. The longest line we zipped on through the forest trees was 1600ft long, exhilarating! Loved this vacation! We celebrated one evening by having the chef come cook dinner for us. They must have someone new because these two ladies knocked out a surf and turf menu to die for. Appetizers, main coarse, and desert were excellent. Sara was great keeping the house fresh each day. We had a little trouble with a problem but it was handled by Flora so adequately its not worth going into. Flora was great to work with. Have no fears while booking this home. Thank you for the memories!

better than the photos!!!

  • 5 of 5

The photos of this house does not do it justice! We were so happy with this beautiful home! Flora (the home owner) was beyond helpful in planning our trip prior to going on vacation. Sara (housekeeper) is incredible and cleans the house almost daily. She was so helpful in so many ways and took care of us when we needed any additional help!! She is a real plus for the house! The activities are close to the house (zip lining, horseback riding to the falls, surfing, ..... all a must). We tried to have the chef cook for us but unfortunately both nights we hired him he either didnt show up or came late with the wrong food that we ordered). So after that we either ate out or cooked in ourselves. Tortilla Flats is a must and the fresh fish is incredible. The house is JUST PERFECT for lounging sitting by the pool or playing ping pong. Our days consisted of activities in the morning and spending afternoons poolside enjoying this incredible home! Sunset here are to die for!!! Cant wait to return.
