Villa set on 250-Acre Private Jungle Reserve with Ocean Views

Bedrooms 8
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

Main house with 2 guest houses, 8 Bedrooms, 8 Baths (12 beds , Sleeps 16)

This unique property has plenty of privacy, wildlife, fruit orchards, waterfalls and streams set on 250 acres. Villa Chill's main house includes a swimming pool, open kitchen, 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. The 2 adjacent guest houses each have 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

Located 800 ft in elevation & a mile from the ocean, Villa Chill has a regular breeze and inspiring ocean views all year around, all day long.

The environment feels less like a salty beach & more like a refreshing rain forest. Yet there are excellent beaches for family walks, horseback riding and others for surfing - all within 10-20 minutes from our doorstep.

Toucans live in the trees around Villa Chill. It is not uncommon to see toucans and parrots daily. A wide array of wildlife lives in the property including howler monkeys, parrots, 3-toe sloth and many other species. During the rainy season eagles perch nearby.

This property has many types of fruit trees including an orchard located in the valley below the villa and depending on when you're visiting, various fruits from the property are provided for your sampling.

If you're ready for serious hiking and bring the appropriate gear, we can arrange a guide to take you through our pristine jungle to see what few people have the opportunity to see.

About Annick & Jason

We've traveled the world, and have spent a lot of time in Southeast Asia, Brazil and Southern Europe. Our place will compete with any of these locales.

Annick & Jason purchased this villa in 2009

Why Annick & Jason chose Dominical

The southern part of Costa Rica is ideal for our children to experience nature and explore the abundance of wildlife, trees, flowers and birds of the area. We fell in love right away when we came to visit this farm for the first time in 2006. As soon as we learned that this property was for sale, we bought it right away as we knew that this will be rare gem that our children and their families could enjoy for years to come.

What makes this villa unique

The privacy is unparalleled. Nowhere else will you find a house for rent that is surrounded by the rain forest, yet with killer ocean views and restaurants a short drive away.

Amazing Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days at Villa Chill, and everything about it was outstanding. The owners were fast and thorough in responses to my questions. The rave reviews about the house proved true, and I think it's impossible to state how beautiful the home, views, and property truly are. The main house has a panoramic view to the west and south, with the whale's tail being the main feature. This is our third trip to the area, and this house definitely had the best views.

Huge flocks of parrots live in the palm trees nearby, and oropendolas nest there too. Toucans were common visitors, and we also saw an aracari, and many other small birds. We heard monkeys every morning, rarely saw them. We saw a large troop of coatis a few times on the trail up to the mirador, and bats put on a nightly show.

The property could easily occupy you for a week or more, and we enjoyed daily hikes on the trails that only scratched the surface of what we could have explored. There are fruit trees, a teak forest, and streams running along the property and below the yoga platform (which was a great place to go and get some solitude).

The elevation made nights cool, and seems to keep mosquitos away.

The caretaker, Vin, is friendly and helpful, always be around but never intrusive and I enjoyed practicing my awful spanish with him. Daisy cooked dinner for us three nights, she is fantastic and cooked immense quantities of authentic Tico fare.

The home is in a great location between Dominical and Uvita, each about 15 minutes away by car. We visited most of the beaches between Dominical and Ventanas, and I think Playa Hermosa was the best overall, and is the closest. We enjoyed Costa Canyoning, Jungle ATV, and a boat tour with Bahia Aventuras (all in Uvita), and surf lessons with Dominical Waverider. And the Jolly Roger Bar so close made dinners easy when evening rainstorms made travel difficult.

There is not much I can add to the many great reviews about the house itself, but it does have all modern amenities, kitchen is well-equipped, beds are comfortable, and the guest houses themselves would make excellent main homes on their own.

The road to the house is going to be an adventure for first-timers, but you will get used to it. If you are looking for an adventure without sacrificing comfort or safety, this is the place!

Great stay for the family

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a great visit to Costa Rica. There were 15 of us in the house which still had plenty more room. The main house is a great open space for everyone to interact. The two side houses are great for spreading out for sleep or just to get space. The water pressure was awesome. There is a comfortable couch and wonderful views of the ocean. The pool is great for families with young children. The grounds are beautiful and provide hikes ranging from moderate to extreme difficulty. The caretaker (Vin) was very kind and responsive as was the owner (Annick) to any questions or issues we had.

The location of the house is both incredible and limiting depending on your mindset. It's relatively near a lot of things (parks, waterfalls, good restaurants), but it'll take at least 10-15 minutes to go anywhere.

The house is not baby proofed. We had to keep our eyes on our 1 year old pretty much the whole trip. The fence around the balcony was just large enough for him to climb through if he wanted to fall 20 ft. :) Fortunately, that never happened.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your feedback Jonathon. We want people to have a good time at Villa Chill, and feedback like yours helps set the right expectations while staying there. We've been lucky enough to spend time at Villa Chill with babies of all ages. We've seen happy children crawl, walk and swim for the first time, commune with nature along with grandparents. By necessity, our property has become a prefect place for family with young children and grandparents. Yet, as you point out, there is an age where a child could slip through the railings.We recommend bringing a Pack 'n Play for children below 18 months.

The home is located near the beach (you will need a car to come in and out), the views are amazing, the hosts are great. It is fully equipped with everything you you may needs for a nice time out.

We got married in this little piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

As the title suggests we recently got married at the beautiful property. It really is a special place. Annick and Jason were so helpful and full of advise while we were at home planning our wedding. When we arrived Vin and his wife Jeanneth went above and beyond to help us in every way that they could. Jeanneth and her sister Daisy even cooked for us on our wedding day and the food was just delicious. We could not have asked for a more helpful and friendly group of people, who really made our day special and stress free.

As for the is beautiful and private. The view is absolute breath taking, and we never got tired of staring out over the rainforest to the ocean. I don't think we have ever stayed anywhere with a more spectacular view. There is also a wealth of wildlife on the property, we were lucky enough to see a sloth, monkeys, agoutis, coatis, toucans, frogs and many other weird and wonderful creatures all literally on our doorstep!

The main house and two smaller houses were perfect for our group of 18 people, including two kids under the age of five. The swimming pool has a great shallow section for the kids to play in and a deep part for adults. The kitchen was very well stocked and we were able to cook for our party without an issue. The BBQ also worked well.

All in all we could not have asked for more and we are so happy that we chose this property as our wedding venue. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to really is special and we will never forget it.

Thank you so much, Annick, Jason, Vin, Jeanneth and Daisy x
