Property description

At Los Portales, life gets a little easier the second you walk through the front door.
This stunning, five-bedroom vacation rental home is quietly nestled in the lavish green hills of Escaleras, one of the most breathtaking locations in the entire southern Pacific zone of Costa Rica and a favorite destination of many travelers to the Dominical and Uvita areas.
With massive jungle-to-ocean views on both the top and bottom floors, an infinity pool ripped right out of the pages of “House Beautiful Magazine” and enough space to accommodate large families or groups, Los Portales is a perfect choice for an unforgettable vacation in paradise.
Located less than a 10-minute drive off the Pan-American Highway and sitting at an elevation of 335 meters (1,100 feet), Los Portales faces due west – directly at the Pacific Ocean below – and is subject to brilliant breezes all day long, from the crisp morning offshore winds filtering through the eastern hills to the afternoon sea breeze that’ll keep you feeling refreshed and relaxed from sun up to sun down.
The home’s top floor features two bedrooms, including an elegant master bedroom, large kitchen and living room areas, as well as a wrap-around patio deck with marvelous ocean views to the north and south, including a direct shot at the famous “Whale’s Tail” of Uvita.
The kitchen area is fully stocked with all modern appliances (dishwasher, stove, oven, microwave and refrigerator), while the living room contains multiple couches, chairs and a large flat-screen television. A bedroom adjacent to the living room has a king bed and an attached bathroom. There is also a washer-dryer unit upstairs. The ceiling on the top floor is more than eight meters high, giving off a charming, airy feel from the moment you step inside.
For sheer luxury, the master bedroom can’t be beat. There are full ocean sightlines from its comfortable king bed and some excellent local artwork on the walls. Furthermore, there’s a jet-powered spa tub in the bathroom with a complete jungle view through glass panels. The master bedroom also features European and American toilets and a private shower.
On the bottom floor, where the 11-meter infinity pool sits, are three additional bedrooms as well as a large, open-air living area with an absolutely gorgeous wood bar that’s perfect for hosting big events or small gatherings.
One of the downstairs bedrooms has its own bathroom and king bed. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom. Of those two rooms, one has a king bed and the other a pair of twin beds. There’s an additional outdoor bathroom near the pool and a shower for rinsing off.
Speaking of the pool, plan to spend a lot of time there. The views are magical and there’s enough space to swim laps for extended exercise. In addition, there are barstools under water so you and your guests can belly up and enjoy a few cocktails when you’re tired from all that swimming.
Los Portales also has a secret wooden patio perched in the trees on its south end. Here, you can sneak into the hammock with a book, escaping the sun and all of life’s little issues, too. Before settling in, it might be best to grab some passion fruit from the trees below and call it an afternoon.
In addition to all the aforementioned amenities, the property features 24-hour live-in security. Driving to the surf in Dominical or shopping stores in Uvita will take less than 20 minutes from the driveway to your final destination.
Trust us, there are many spectacular vacation rentals in the area and Los Portales, in terms of comfort, charm, local flair and versatility stands as one of the premier properties available to tourists from all over the world.
No air conditioning required! Along with the amazing Pacific coast views, this property affords an elevation of 1,100 feet above sea level. The altitude allows for a cooler climate (day and night temps) with great breezes off the ocean during the day and even cooler mountain breezes at night. The house has been architecturally designed for cross ventilation, and the surrounding mature jungle also helps to shade the house and outdoor living spaces.
