About the Property

Casa Isabella: 2BR Jungle Home Near The Famous Dominical On The Pacific Coast

This is a centrally located home, affording you complete privacy in the Southern Zone of C.R. with fruit stands within walking distance, although, depending on the time of year, you can pick your own on the property. Supermarkets, restaurants, gift shops, swimming/surfing on the Pacific Coastline, ATM Is south on pacific coast hwy in Uvita.
Very close by is hiking or horseback riding to Nauyaca Waterfalls. The Nauyaca office is within walking distance from the house. In Dominical, which is a 15 - 20 minute drive away, is an Information Center that can direct you to any adventure in which you might be interested It is a 40-45 minute drive to Manuel Antonio, with many restaurants, swimming and it's famous National Park. The house is situated on 10-11 acres of land. In the back of the house is the valley and the jungle at its finest. 5 a.m is 'the time' to see animals: armadillos, capuchin monkeys, pizote (coati), wild pigs and others. One cannot guarantee you seeing these animals but when you do it will be the thrill of your life. I know it has been mine. You will also hear Howler monkeys every morning. Juan is our gardener and only speaks Spanish ebut definitely makes himself understood. Hand gestures are a great thing! Miriam is his wife and she is the manager of the property. She does speak English and will attend to your needs and answer any questions that might come up. The house is surrounded by a tiled patio with hammocks and a breakfast nook. There are many species of birds around the house, including Toucans. There are also oropendolas which are beautiful birds and make the funniest and strangest sounds. They are usually seen and heard early evening and the Toucans are around in both the mornings and evenings. The front of the house offers you mountain views and at 4:40 to 5:30 there is a flock of white birds that fly by religiously. The breakfast nook faces the butterfly garden and watching the hummingbirds in the mornings is also delightful.
Details about the house: the 2 bedrooms each have a double size bed with night stands with reading lamps on each side, a leather rocking chair in each. There are no closets but there are shelves and attached areas in which to hang your clothes. The larger bedroom has an open bamboo armoire for clothing and a sliding door that gives one access to the front patio. There is bamboo shelving in the bathroom for all of your toiletries and there is both a shower and bathtub. The kitchen has a full sized refrigerator and stove/oven. There is a toaster, a coffeemaker and a blender. All dishes and pots and pans, eating and cooking utensils are provided. The kitchen also has a washing machine and dryer for your use but they are getting old and will soon need to be replaced. But they are still usable. The living room has 2 sets of sliding doors leading out to the front and side patios. Internet/wireless are available. Housekeeping services are not included but if you wish someone to clean Miriam can arrange that for you. The cost will be $35 in cash.
With all this wonderfulness, I am obliged to let you know that there is one downside. The main road cannot be seen from the house and as I said previously there is total privacy but the noise from trucks can heard. Some guests are concerned and others are not. For those concerned I have suggested bringing earplugs so that your sleep is not disturbed.

Location

Car: Recommended

There is the Information Center in the town of Dominical.

They can essentially supply you with information about events in the area and activities in which you may be interested in doing. They also have local bus information, taxi info, restaurants, different beaches, gift shops, car rentals, where to rent bikes, scuba diving and snorkeling equipment, horseback riding, deep sea fishing, etc. Ventana beach is one of my favorites for swimming, as is Nauyaca Waterfalls for swimming, horseback riding and hiking.
