Property description

Casa Mira Mar hovers over the breaking waves of Dominical Beach. It is perched on a hill 200 meters from the ocean on a secluded beach and is a perfect home base for beach and mountain adventures. This 3 bedroom, 3 bath, 2 kitchen home is perfectly located in one of Costa Rica's most wild and scenic areas, right between Playa Dominical and Playa Dominicalito. The National Wildlife Reserve, Hacienda Baru, is less then 5 minutes away and the "must see" Whale's Tail National Park is 20 minutes away. Also, the world famous Maunuel Antonio National Park is 45 minutes away and makes for a great day trip. Corcovado and the Osa Penninsula are right around the corner and would make for a great weekend trip.

The house itself is set up with an amazing covered deck that quickly becomes the hang out area for everyone. There is also an outdoor patio downstairs that is perched above the ocean. It is the perfect spot to watch the sun set into the pacific and enjoy a tasty beverage. Manuel Antonio can be seen clearly from this perch, as well as the waves crashing on dominical beach.

Both kitchens are set up with everything you need to make a healthy and delicious tropical meal.

The house is furnished with artistic and locally made tropical hard wood pieces that are a nice compliment to the clean/tiled feel of the place.

All 3 bedrooms have their own full bathroom. From the beds in each of the rooms, you can wake up and see and hear the ocean without lifting your head off the pillow. Then have a cup of coffee and walk 5 minutes down the hill for a quick dip in the pacific. That's how we like to start the day.

Our house works great for friends, couples, or families. The upstairs deck is completely baby proof with railings on all sides :-)
One things to note is that bedroom #3 downstairs (1 double bed) has a separate entrance and is, therefore, not the best room for children. It offers a little extra privacy for whoever stays in that room.

The yard has citrus trees, mango trees, coconuts palms, bamboo and many flowers. It slopes down towards the main road and ocean. Birds are bountiful (especially parakeets) and a monkey has been eating the papayas lately.

Its truly a sweet little spot for relaxing and makes for a great home base for your Costa Rican adventures.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I first came to Costa Rica as an English Teacher back in 1998. I was fresh out of college and was interested in exploring the planet and learning Spanish. Costa Rica proved to be the most ideal place on earth for me. Its the perfect nature lover's paradise. I love the biological diversity, tropical cuisine and most all i have come to love and respect the people of Costa Rica. I have traveled the country extensively and can give advice on all Costa Rican travel plans.

Why the Owner Chose Dominical, Costa Rica:
Although Costa Rica has many great beaches, we love Dominical the best. The town is very manageable and the house is a 5 minute drive to shopping, banks, tours, surfing restaurants, bars, night life and a national park. The house itself is not like other houses which are 15 minutes drive from the ocean. This casita is so close to everything and that just makes more beach time and less car time which I like on vacation. The mountains meet the ocean here like nowhere else in Costa Rica. You can be swimming in the ocean at Dominicalito beach and walk 5 minutes up the hill and be bathing under a 20 foot waterfall at posa azul. I also feel safe in Dominical. I like the eclectic crowd and the tranquillo vibe. Its a magical spot in the world and I feel good when I'm there drinking a pipa (coconut water) on the beach.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Being a two minute walk from a secluded beach is the most unique aspect of this home. The casita is so close to Playa Dominicalito, Playa Dominical, Hacienda Baru and Posa Azul Waterfall and swimming hole. Being so close to the ocean and having an ocean view are priceless. Also being so close to the great restaurants, grocery stores and tour operators of Dominical is very convenient. Its a superb house and location. Also, the house has a guest book that has descriptions of many activities to do in the area. That way each visitor can add his/her input and we can all learn from those experiences making our short time there more enjoyable. Its like a house journal that holds the memories and experiences of all who enjoy themselves there and want to share their stories.
