Year Purchased: 2013

About: Casa Carmel is managed and represented by Jaguar Property Management, owners Tom and Christine. Casa Carmel is a brand new, lovely home owned by one of our clients, located in the Southern Zone, where the rainforest mountains kiss the sea. Guests can't help but fall in love with this stretch of Pacific coastline, the unspoiled beauty of our local beaches, and the little villages of Dominical, Uvita and Ojochal. Casa Carmel is located 9km south of the surfer village of Dominical, and 9km north of family oriented Uvita.

Why Dominical, Costa Rica:
A message from the owners of Casa Carmel - We have been visiting Costa Rica since we were married over fifteen years ago. We’ve been fortunate to travel to many wonderful places but we keep finding ourselves back in Costa Rica. We simply fell in love with the natural beauty, the wonderful people and it has become our special place to recharge from our hectic lives. During our trips, we have enjoyed exploring new areas but we have always been drawn to the southern pacific coast (often called the Southern Zone, located between Dominical and Ojochal).

The Unique Benefits at this House:
For years, it was our dream to find a “little piece of heaven” that we could call our own in Costa Rica! We’ve looked at several communities but we finally found our beautiful, gated community...and that was it! We found this sanctuary on the last day of our visit two years ago and fell in love with our lot because we have beautiful views of both the mountains and the pacific coast. Having lived in Florida and Colorado, it’s the best of both worlds! We love the privacy of our home, coffee by the pool as we watch amazing sunrises, our morning walks and we’re also close to numerous beaches, horse riding, surfing, restaurants, local shopping and all sorts of activities. We’ve had a wonderful experience building our home this year and we are delighted to share our special place with you!
