About the Property
Cottage, Studio + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)
The villa is removed from the hustle and bustle, not only of 'back home', but the feeling of being removed from the world is palpable. Numerous guests have commented on the 'therapeutic affect' of Casa Selva. You truly unwind here. You can enjoy solitude on your balcony or visit our porch/pool area to exchange adventure stories. Because there is only one other rental casa on our property it is always an intimate gathering! When we are not available, and the guests ask for a referral to something similar, we are hard-pressed to come up with the answer. There simply isn't one.
From Casa Selva you can drive 15 minutes to either the world famous surf town of Dominical, or the thriving community of Uvita, complete with grocery stores, banks, ATMs, pharmacies, etc. Numerous sites and activities are all around: horseback waterfall tours, whale and dolphin tours, sport fishing, turtle vigilance, diving, surfing, ATV tours, the list goes on. Or, how about some quiet time in a hammock with a good book? A stay at Casa Selva includes access to the pool, which overlooks the entire southern coastline.
Keywords: honeymoon, romantic getaway, jungle hideaway, additional jungle villas available if needed. Secluded in nature for privacy, but close enough to beaches, surfing, waterfalls, horseback riding, zip-lining, nature reserves, fabulous restaurants and spas, snorkeling and scuba, etc...

Why the Owner Chose Dominical, Costa Rica:
We did one long trip thru Costa Rica & fell in love with this area in particular & thought it would appeal to other travelers like us so, here we are! We really love and enjoy, the hospitality biz so now we live and work at what we love to do. Peter spends hours in the gardens, he loves to plant things that grow unbelievably quickly! We're here to help with what ever the guests may need & yet give you total privacy at your casita.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This is a place to let your hair down, relax and enjoy nature. Because we are so close to the jungle (indeed we have a large amount on our property), you will see more wildlife here than in other rentals. Both howler & white faced monkeys frequently use our trees as a path from one valley to another. You can conveniently do as much or as little as you like while you're here. It's a very central location for the area.
