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

Nestled in the rainforest with beautiful views of Dominicalito Beach

  • 5 of 5

It’s like visiting the zoo expect you’re the one on display for all the wildlife that surrounds you. The house was fantastic with all the amenities you’d want. The views of Dominicalito Beach from the pool were gorgeous. We went in late July and although we were expecting it would rain a lot we had great weather. The team from YouGetHere was very helpful and check in/out was a breeze. Alonso gave us a lot of great tips on where to go and what to do while in Dominical. We also visited the Rainmaker Conservation Project and Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary which were both very cool. If you want to try your hand at surfing we highly recommend Ezekiel and the folks at Costa Rica Surf Camp in Dominical.

Great week Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect for us. We are a family of four and our stay turned out wonderful. We have an 11 year old and 14 year old. We loved the privacy, being surrounded by nature. The howler monkeys visited us for a few days, iguanas and Tucans. The response and customer service from the team (Claudia, Alfonso and Steve) was superb and much appreciated being our first time in Costa Rica. Ensure you do have a 4x4 to cross the river/creek. The water fall at the bottom past the football field and school is well worth the visit.

Private jungle home with spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this home with another couple in May. It is exactly as described and more. It was nice not to see any homes and gave the feeling of being in the jungle. Most people go to Costa Rica to experience nature and beautiful views and you will not be disappointed. Also, the location is perfect, very close to restaurants and stores. Make sure you rent a 4 wheel drive vehicle to drive across a river on road up to home. We are not complaining, it was part of the experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Gorda Vista.

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations were perfect for our family of four. Both Gina and Claudia were extremely helpful! Our first morning we were fortunate to witness several white face monkeys playing in the trees right outside our bedroom window. We also saw toucans, geckos and a poisonous dart frog on the property. The gradens were very well manicured and added to the beauty of the property. The view of the ocean was exquisite. We took advantage of the pool floats and boogie boards during our ocean excursions. I highly recommend Gorda Vista for anyone staying in the Dominical area.

Property was exactly as displayed in the pictures.

  • 4 of 5

Upon arrival Gina greeted us warmly and gave us a very thorough orientation. The house performed well.

I was very disappointed that the main living area was not air conditioned. In this tropical climate at night when you can’t keep the doors open the living room, eating area and kitchen were extremely hot.

Again upon our departure Gina was very professional in the process.
