About the Property

White-water beach view, breathtaking view of ocean, jungle, blue sky, wildlife

Peaceful, quiet and private, Villa HighPalms is an ideal getaway for a week or a month. The 2-storey stand-alone condo-villa is located directly above a beautiful one-kilometer long beach in Dominical, Costa Rica, with stunning ocean and white water views. As one of the 35 vacation villas in a secure gated community, Villa HighPalms is the most private due to its position at the end of a closed road on a corner lot by the edge of the rainforest. Sightings of toucans, raccoons, iguanas and monkeys are common.

The community of Canto del Mar, where Villa HighPalms is located, offers convenient access to a string of pristine beaches, being only 150 meters from the coastal highway turnoff. It offers 24-hour security with a gated entrance and hourly foot-patrol.

At about 250 feet above sea level, Villa HighPalms offers a totally unobstructed view of the Pacific Ocean, the sandy beach below, a picturesque headland, and a cove that welcomes fishing boats, swimmers and surfers. The villa is caressed by warm sea breeze throughout the day and cool mountain breeze throughout the night. Furniture on the veranda and lighting in the garden make outdoor dining and entertaining a way of life.

The stroll from the villa to Playa Dominicalito (Little Dominical Beach) takes 5 minutes down a gentle slope, alongside a football field, and across a low traffic road. The beach has a beautiful backdrop of emerald rainforest, light brown sand and rocky outcrops at both ends. Sunsets on the beach are fabulous. There is a popular waterfall with a natural swimming pool less than 1 km away.

The town of Dominical (3 hours from the international airport in San Jose and 30 minutes from the regional airport in Quepos) and the surfing actions on the main Dominical Beach are 4 km away, where you will find souvenir and grocery stores, restaurants and bars, internet cafes and tours offices. Uvita, which is 12 km further south, has large supermarkets, banks and more restaurants.

This fully furnished 1500-sq.ft.vacation home is surrounded by majestic palm trees, a profusion of tropical fruit trees and flowering plants. The corner position of the villa ensures tranquility and total privacy. One of the 3 bedrooms is furnished as a home office and TV room. Quality ceramics, hard wood poles and beams are used in constructing the villa and the design is overall airy, modern and tropical. There is plenty of space for car park directly in front of the villa. Two cable TVs come with a DVD player and a home theater system. Internet connection is available.

The rates shown here are for couples. Extra person please add $20/night. Monthly rentals are only available to couples.

A short stroll from the villa down a gentle slope leads to a football field, then onto Dominicalito (little Dominical) Beach across the road. The beach has a beautiful backdrop of emerald hills and more than a kilometer of fine sand, with rocky outcrops at both ends and fabulous sunset evening after evening. From the villa you will also be able to walk or hike for miles into the rainforest behind and above. Chances are you will come across families of monkeys, raccoons, squirrels and a great variety of birds.

Dominical town and the surfing actions on the main Dominical Beach are 2.5 miles away, where you will find grocery stores, restaurants, bars and internet cafes. Within 40 minutes to the north and south are a dozen beaches or more, including the world-famous beaches of Manuel Antonio National Park. Corcovado National Park, the world's most biologically diverse spot, is 2 hours away by car and boat. You can take yoga or surfing lessons, join a horseback-riding tour to the waterfalls, watch whales and dolphins in the Ballena Marine National Park, hike or take a guided walk in the Hacienda Baru Wildlife Refuge, visit the bustling town of San Isidro and the farmers market in Uvita, which is also well known for its 'Whale's Tail' formation, made up of coral rocks and a 1-km sandbar between two beaches. We look forward to sharing with you some of our secret undiscovered spots!


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We work and live around the world for the last thirty years. In 2005 we came to Dominical to work on a business project and came across this development overlooking the beach. We fell in love with the view and the natural environment.

Why the Owner Chose Dominical, Costa Rica:
It has the best of the both worlds, the beaches and the rainforests. One day we can stroll on a deserted beach for miles, and another we can spend hours on a nature trail, being mesmerized by giant or ancient plant species or dazzled by birds and small wildlife.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The locals here are very friendly and welcoming and almost everyone you meet will greet you or smile. It's not yet as developed as other more famous destinations in the north, so you can still get that 'wild west' authentic feel around the place.
