Gorda Vista has been built and furnished to high specifications. Construction was recently finished in August 2012. The villa has been designed to be the ideal vacation property, which makes the most of its beautiful location. It encompasses this with the concept of outdoor living.

The property is private and has a gated entrance. It is secluded and located on the mountainside surrounded by forested jungle and wildlife. It is at an altitude of 564ft above sea level with cooling breezes off the ocean and mountains. It is ideal for a family vacation, a couple for a honeymoon, romantic get away or an adventure vacation.

The entire ground floor has been cleverly designed to integrate the pool, deck, covered terrace, kitchen and lounge into one outdoor living space. It can be easily changed into separate outdoor and indoor spaces by simply closing the large glazed doors that are on two sides of the lounge wall.

The top floor has two bedrooms, both with air conditioning, ensuite bathrooms and ceiling fans. The master bedroom has a larger balcony with 2 deck chairs and a table to enjoy the best sunrise coffee you have ever experienced as you listen to the jungle “wake.” It also has 2 stand-up balconies offering mountain and ocean views. It has a kingsize bed, a large ensuite bathroom, sandstone shower for two, 2 sinks and a separate toilet room. The second bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and 2 stand-up balconies offering ocean views. It can be used for children or a couple. There is also a comfortable queen-size convertible bed in the lounge.

The 45-foot lap pool with infinity edge overlooks Dominicalito Beach. It has a wider area adjacent to the house with two tiled sunken chairs and a raised table to relax in the pool water whilst sipping your cocktails and watching the sunset into the ocean.

Gorda Vista stands on a 5 acres of private tiered estate with a lower landscaped area with walking paths winding round over 100 different varieties of well tendered tropical plants, herbs and fruit trees which include Papayas, Star Fruit, Mangos, Lemons, Avocados, Mandarins, Pineapples, Oranges, Bananas, Plantains, Cashews, etc. These trees and plants are presently still young and being nurtured but if you find any herbs or fruit ready you are welcome to eat them.

The location of the property will make your vacation easy as the local stores, banks, restaurants and amenities are only a 15-minute drive away. There are a great variety of tours, activities and adventures for all ages and levels of excitement. They are all just a short drive away and can be booked and arranged by us.

Bed linen and towels for both bathroom and pool provided.

The villa is easy to reach with only a scenic 125 miles or 201 km drive from San Jose international airport (Juan Santamaria) on the newly constructed highways.

• You will need to rent a 4x4 vehicle to access the property and to enjoy the southern Pacific zone of Costa Rica

Unforgettable family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house is well designed with the outdoors in mind. The landscaping and pool are phenomenal. The location was ideal for our daily adventures. From the beginning Josue and Stephen were very helpful and responded to our needs quickly and effectively. The staff at checkout arrived promptly and kindly assisted us with some suggestions for our return to San Jose. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Gorda Vista, would highly recommend the property and staff, and hope to return in the future.

Even better than I ever expected!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this property set my expectations pretty high. What a surprise when we pulled up to the house and it was even more spectacular. This was our first time to Cost Rica, and we are so thankful this was the place we chose to spend it. Why we loved it...

1. The house: Gorgeous view/amazing property/new, well-maintained house/the pool/comfortable stay/AC/Internet/washer and dryer/fully furnished with lots of extras

2. Location: Dominical ended up being a perfect home base. The small surf town had everything . The beaches - Dominical Beach or Dominicalito Beach - were right there. We had the best fish from the local guy around the corner. It's just a cool area....the people wonderful as well.

3. Property staff - Thank you Stephen and Josue! We were well cared for and they were the reason why.

4. Wildlife/jungle - We had the best of both worlds. The house was up the hill in the jungle but only 5 minutes from the main highway. We saw monkeys, sloths, toucans, tree frogs, etc.

We are going back!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My Wife, two teenage daughters and I recently had the pleasure of staying Gorda Vista. The place itself is just as the pictures appear, beautiful. For the purpose of out visit the location was ideal. Right across the street from Dominicalito beach and right down the road from Dominical. We also took a short drive to Playa Ventanas. The neat thing about this area is there are so many beaches, and each of them are unique in their own way. We also visited Nauyaca Waterfalls where we rode horses back into the jungle to the Falls and then climbed the falls and jumped into the cool clear water below.

Gorda Vista was a great base camp for all of our activities. After a full day of activity it was enjoyable to spend late afternoons in the pool and the open air living area. The grounds are very well maintained and the howler monkeys were active each morning and evening. One afternoon a troop of about 6 monkeys went swinging by having fun which made for an enjoyable experience.

Check in and out was seamless and very easy. I would recommend Gorda Vista for anybody staying in the Dominical area.

One word "AMAZING"

  • 5 of 5

This place is truly a dream, and is better than we ever imagined. The pool was to die for and we spent many hours in it. We saw monkeys, toucans frogs and lizards right at the house. Super private and quiet, well actually it's pretty noisy with the sounds of the jungle but that's one of the best parts. The road to the house is fun and an adventure itself. Everyone went out of their way to make this trip great. Stephen was great on the front end, and Doug and Janet the owners were super welcoming and have an amazing and super well equipped home. We hit a variety of beaches all great, hiked to Nauyaca (not a bad hike) went to Manuel Antonio which was the only busy place we saw. Parasailed, did a kayak tour through the mangroves with pineapple tours (highly recommend) went to hacienda baru and had a great time hanging out at the house. Our favorite time was at night walking around the property and the beautiful gardens finding frogs and toads and geckos and some amazingly large bugs. My wife loved the lounger couch on the veranda with a good book. It's a great place highly recommend

Best holiday ever!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best places we have ever stayed the staff,Stephen and his associates were most helpful. The people of Costa Rica are very friendly .The property is pristine you did not need to leave the accommodation as much of the wildlife surrounding the property make an appearance on a daily basis; sloths, monkeys ,toucans , variety of birds and butterflies.The kitchen is very well equipped , with supermarkets in Uvita ,Dominical and a fish monger at the bottom of the hill. The gardens are immaculate and the view fantastic. We had a peaceful ,chilled, wonderful holiday. Thank you.

My husband and 2 kids and I stayed at Gorda Vista for 6 nights over the holidays. We could not have picked a better place to stay. The drive up to the house is fun! The property itself is magnificent! I enjoyed a walk every day! The view cannot be beat. I enjoyed my coffee every morning watching the frogs and lizards and listening to the monkeys and birds before anyone else woke up. The house is so comfortable and well-appointed that my kids really didn't want to stay at the beach most days... they were ready to go back to the house to hang out at the pool by 2:00 every day! We enjoyed buying some fresh fish from the fish market and just cooking at the house.... it was just spectacular! Can't wait to return!
