About the Property
Stunning Oceanview, 2 Bedroom, 2.5 Bath One Of A Kind Getaway! (sleeps 4)
The compound consists of 2 tropical modern style thatched roof Palapas with Balinese flare. Each Thatched roof palapa is designed to accommodate 2 in a luxurious bedroom, with king bed, and bath opening to ocean views and nature on all sides. The woods have been hand selected down to picking the trees to bring in rich native woods while
keeping clean, contemporary lines. Cool Columbian limestone floor tiles and Sandstone carvings brought in from Bali add elegant but tropical accents to each palapa.
The upper palapa is two stories with an open living room on the first floor and bedroom on the second. Also here are is powder room and full size laundry. A wall of rich wood louvers doors slide away to provide you with a small kitchen comprised of a refrigerator, two burner stove microwave and sink. It's a casual setting to prepare breakfast and lunch or evening cocktails before heading out to one of our local eateries for dinner.
Leading out from the outdoor living area is a spectacular 40’ infinity swimming pool with 8’ waterfall. The pool provides several different areas with-in it to swim or relax on one of the benches or shallow lounge areas. Multiple terraces provide different areas to sun and dine all while overlooking the beautiful ocean below and jungle above. Step through the pool across a sandstone walkway to the Indonesian Pavilion or 'Bale'. A perfect place to read, relax or meditate...and that’s just what we want you to do!
As the house is perched on a hill, there is a series of stairs and bridges to lead you up to the main living and pool area, 50 steps in all. Along the way you get views of the magnificent gardens, full of tropical plants, as well as the great oceans views. One of the first focal points you see is the base of the bale adorned in river rock with a beautiful sandstone carving of Heliconias and Plumerias brought from Bali. Then, placed in the middle of the
garden, you enter through a set of antique Indonesian doors which gives you the first real views of the palapas.
Once up at the house you can enjoy the tranquility of the surroundings and spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. It's not unheard of to see migrating whales, dolphins, and the birds and butterflies are amazing! Toucans pass through routinely. If it’s not the birds chattering you hear, it's the ocean waves providing a constant concert of sounds.
Located in the South Central Pacific region of Costa Rice this home is easily accessible from San Jose via a 3 hour drive and ½ hour from the regional airport just outside of Manual Antonia/Quepos. A 2 kilometer drive south of the small surfing town of Dominical. An important feature of the home is its premier location. Unlike many vacation homes in this area this home is conveniently located a short drive to stores, restaurants and services. You do not have to drive up or down long, high mountain roads to get to the main highway.
The area is rich with activities from zip-lining, river rafting, snorkeling, fishing and horseback riding just to name a few! It is also a great place to escape to and just watch the incredible bird and wildlife or walk the beach below.
We invite you experience our “Temenos” a uniquely styled Costa Rica vacation home

Why the Owner Chose Dominical, Costa Rica:
We fell in love with Costa Rica the first trip there and bought this brought right then. This has been our 'dream' to create Villa Temenos. From the first moments standing on the raw land we started creating the vision that is now the reality of our home. We have more visions to come, but glad to start sharing Villa Temenos with others
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is our bit of 'heaven on earth' as they say. It is a unique getaway to unwind, recharge and refresh one's self and soul. It's very easy to not want to leave.
