Sports & Adventure Activities
Perfect getaway spot
Amazing location just down the road from the main strip in Dominical. Spacious home with perfect sunset views. The caretakers are very attentive and are quick to answer any questions about the area or the home. Definitely would recommend a 4x4 to get up the driveway.
Unbelievable spot, private, awesome view, close walk to town and beaches
We were only looking for a basic place to lay our heads after exploring the area daily and avoiding the tourist areas at all costs, but we were very surprised, owner and property manager were very accessible if needed, but we didn’t.
Perfectly private, perfect distance to the most beautiful empty beach that we have ever seen, one mile from a very cool and non tourist town of Dominical, no pushy sales just very laid back.
I could write about this stay all day! The bottom line is greatest vacation ever, perfect house and location!
Thanks Allan and Misty for being available if needed.
Maurice, thank you for your review, please come back again. I will give you one free night.Bill

Best vacation ever
This vacation was amazing. Had the most fun in a long time. It has been 6 years since my last visit and this place is still the same piece of heaven I remember. The hospitality we received from Allan and Misty was very comforting. From the moment we got there till the day we had to leave Allan and Misty were there for us. I had the privilege to go on a fishing excursion with Allan for the day on his boat. Very beautiful scenery and and we caught several mackerel and even snagged a rooster fish. We had the luxury of attending the locals for there lifeguard fundraising event located in Dominical, it was an awesome event. The surf was awesome right out front of the house only 5 minute walk down the hill. I plan on returning next year with a few more people so they can have the true Costa Rican experience I did. Best trip I had in a long time.
Amazing time in an amazing house.
My girlfriend and I stayed at Casa de Sueno with two of our friends for 8 days and enjoyed every moment. Allen, the caretaker, greeted us upon arrival and made sure we had everything we needed. The house was clean and very comfortable. Most of our time was spent hanging out in hammocks and enjoying the beautiful ocean view from the deck. The iguanas would hang out sunning themselves every afternoon and beautiful birds flew from tree to tree around the property. Every evening we viewed gorgeous sunsets and listened to the sounds of crashing of waves The house is conveniently close to the town of Dominical and many of the other beautiful areas that Costa Rica has to offer.
A very negative experience....strongly not recommended.
We were robbed of $3,000 worth of possessions on our first full day in this home. The fact that the burglar(s) entered by means of a previously cut window grating, and that both the owner and caretaker knew of this lapse in security without doing anything about it, or notifying us, made them liable for this incident. The owner refused to enter into conversation about compensation for our losses and was in general a poor communicator. The owner and caretaker had differing stories about why the window grate had been previously removed which leads to increased suspicion about the incident.... To further point to the owners responsibility in the matter, both the owner and caretaker shared after this incident that the property has been subject to similar break-ins and robberies in the past.
If this is not enough to give you caution....
The cleaning of the home had not been completed when we arrived at the home at approximately 1pm despite their knowing our arrival date and the home not being rented for several months. There is no internet service as advertised. The washer was broken and the air conditioners did not work very well. The fridge does not keep food cold enough resulting in rapid spoilage and the toilet was leaking water, filling the bathroom when we arrived. In addition there were not adequate towels provided in the home as promised and the home was stripped bare of all basic amenities, i.e., toilet paper, coffee filters, and basic staples like spices, salt and sugar. As a word of caution, the drive up to the property is on an extemely steep dirt road which becomes muddy and very slick with rain. We slid out of control down the road following a rainstorm, with the antilock brake mechanism kicking in, fortunately coming to a stop just before sliding into the highway.
A final item of concern is that the owner asked us to make payments to him outside this site. With a deposit made by check and then carrying the remainder in cash to CR to pay the caretaker. We would never do that again since it put us at risk of robbery of that extra cash.
Sadly, this burglary did occur but not in the manner that was told by the renters. I was unaware of the bars not being welded in place on the window in question. This is was a miscommunication via email with the renters and myself. The property manager and I only became aware of the window after the burglary occurred and a police investigation. This window was welded shortly after the incident.
This home has been burglarized twice in 16 years prior to December 2016. The last burglary was 4.5 years ago, after that incident steel bars were welded to all windows and doors. There has not been a burglary since the bars were installed until now. Unfortunately, the welder had missed the window. In many conversations with renters I explained that neither myself or caretaker were aware of the bar not being welded in place.This window had NOT been previously cut in a burglary. NO burglary had occurred through this window after steel bars were placed until now.
The renters decided to vacate this property and I refunded their money minus the cleaning expenses ($75.00.)
Unfortunately, like many places in the world homeowners, renters and local police in Costa Rica have an issue with burglary. Valuables should be kept out of sight, especially when leaving the property.
Internet is available through ICE with a data card as explained in listing. There is no wifi on the property. There are two towels per person. It is up to renters to buy 'basic amenities.' As detailed on site a 4x4 is recommended, the driveway is steep.
The toilet was fixed within a few hours of arrival. The refrigerator has since been replaced. The property manager will demonstrate dial on washer to renters if needed, it is not broken. There are AC units in all three bedrooms, for bedroom use only, shut doors as these units are not meant to cool the entire house.
I have accepted payment via personal check for 16 years with no complaints for security deposit. The balance is given to property manager upon arrival. As with previous renters, I will email once check is received and deposited.
