About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
The property has its own private “above the rainforest canopy” observation platform 100 feet above the jungle floor in a majestic Ceiba tree with a girth of around 35 feet at its base and about 12 feet at the level of the platform. The ancient Maya of Central America believed that a great Ceiba tree stood at the center of the earth, connecting the terrestrial world to the spirit world above. The platform can be reached by single rope climbing technique with a hired professional guide. The guide will train you with the skills you will need for this amazing, rewarding and fun activity. Arrangements can be made at the time of reservation for your private platform climbing adventure tour.
The three bedrooms are air conditioned and will comfortably sleep six. The great room includes the dining room, living room, a fully equipped kitchen, and wet bar. A laundry room with washing machine and dryer is located off the kitchen. The house has all new furnishings, Satellite TV service, WiFi internet service, DVD and CD players. The master bedroom suite has a king size bed and sliding glass doors to the pool and patio. It also has a large bathroom with shower and a Jacuzzi bathtub. Another full bathroom is conveniently located between the other two bedrooms, one with queen bed and the other with two twin beds. Housekeeping service is provided once a week, as well as a full time caretaker/gardener six days a week. There is also a large gate at the entrance to the property.
The house is less than 4 kilometers south of the village of Dominical. Located in a very unique region of Costa Rica where the mountains meet the sea, Casa de los Sueños is about 2 kilometers up into the Escaleras Mountains. Therefore, a four-wheel drive vehicle is recommended.
Whether you choose to go tree climbing or enjoy the many activities available in the area, you will certainly not be disappointed with your stay at Casa de los Sueños.

Tree climbing tours 100 feet up to one of the very few above the rainforest canopy observation platforms in the Southern Pacific Zone can be arranged for an additional fee at the time of reservation. The platform is located high up in a majestic Ceiba tree, also known as the 'Mayan Tree of Life'. At 100 feet the diameter of the tree is still over 3 feet! The breeze across the top of the canopy is cool, and the views are simply spectacular. Binoculars and cameras are a must. There is a table and 4 chairs up in the platform making it a perfect place for a once in a lifetime picnic lunch. A professional climbing guide and single rope climbing technique trainer can accommodate groups up to 4 for a flat daily rate. All climbing gear required will be provided for this exclusive and very unique Costa Rican adventure tour.
