Guestbook comments from the manager

Beautiful house hidden up in the hills, surrounded by jungle. Lots of birds and amazing sounds. The house is very nicely designed, modern and stylish. Very clean. Outside space is really great, immersed in the tropical foliage, hummingbirds would join us whilst sun bathing. The pool is lovely too. The house has big windows that open the whole side so great indoor out door living. No mosquitos which was amazing ! Good location especially if you like surfing. Overall very very lovely.

Gorgeous secluded home in the jungle

  • 5 of 5

Amazing! We loved our week here. The home is lovely and private, and is nestled right in the jungle at the end of a long and steep ( in parts) driveway. We enjoyed watching the birds in the morning, and relaxing in the hammocks or on the covered deck in the afternoon. The house opens right up, bringing the outdoors in. Dominical is only 4 k away and Uvita is about 20 k away so the access to groceries and activities is great. We were sad to leave!

Many pros and cons and needs maintenance

  • 3 of 5

M Rance: Needs attention and Maintenance!

Cons: Broken screens, several stains on couch, (not sure how this is considered a 5th place to sleep in the write up!!) toilet didn't flush most of the time, no BBQ as advertised, plumber was allowed into our place unsupervised by property manager without us being told he was coming so our money and passports etc were not secure...very upset about that!! Did not receive a response when we told the manager that the toilet did not work at all after the plumber was there. Had to re-wash dishes in cabinets as they were not clean. Was left a used dish sponge. Constant issue with ants, bugs and creatures crawling everywhere due to broken screens and huge gaps under doors. Had to shake off lizard poop from our bed cover every night, outlets upstairs were crumbling, pool is just a broken hot tub. Several things like fountains and docking station for music didn't work. Broken lawn chairs they tried to fix with duct tape!! Upstairs room hot and humid!!!

Pros: Area is beautiful, lots of spices in kitchen, hammocks were nice. Loved the outdoor shower! Enjoyed the deck.

C Schick: Although this is a very nice property with a awesome view, there is no air conditioning, just fans and the option of opening the sliding glass doors for a breeze. The temperature in the house was always manageable, at least for February. However, even if you keep the glass doors shut shut, there are open spaces (3/4 of an inch?) under the doors and in the bedrooms as well. There were many windows openings that never had anything other than a screen put in them and several of those were torn and hanging down.

Right outside a huge tear in the screen in our bathroom window was a huge golden orb spider, and another huge spider outside our bedroom.

We enjoyed the amazing scenery and the adventure in the area, but felt the house could have used some maintenance. The jets and lights did not work in the "private pool" (aka hot tub). The deck lawn chairs were broken. Our bathroom taps leaked soaking everything on the counter (we had to keep a towel under it all week), and the toilets at times would not flush properly. There are many awesome things to say about the house, the kitchen was well equipped, nice decorating and furniture, nice yard and location! ( You need a four wheel drive vehicle!) For some it would be the perfect holiday. We enjoyed our week there, but would probably not return without maintenance.

In the jungle of Dominical, Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home and property! Open, airy for the adventurous, outdoor, privacy a must guests. As JoAnn our host said, this is a really, really, excellent version of outdoor camping with all the bells and whistles. You must be okay away from all the action, with Mother Nature and all her animals (bugs, birds, monkeys, rodents). The view is gorgeous and location peaceful! Dominical beach is suited for the surfing crowd as the water has a strong current and the waves are bigger than in Manuel Antonio. Michael is an excellent owner, on the ball and great communicator, and efficient!! The property is as described and the amenities plentiful!

Great jungle getaway close to Dominical.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 5 night stay. It was in a secluded jungle location, but not far off the main road. And just a few minutes away from Dominical Beach. Be ready to awake with the birds.

Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Michael and Dawn. We have stayed in several homes in and around Dominical. Your home has some of the best views of any we have stayed in. Not only is the view of the ocean and rainforest beautiful but watching the hummingbirds, Toucans, Parrots and local animals was amazing. The kitchen is well equipped as we prepared several meals ourselves. The beds were very comfortable. When we arrived JoAnn met us at the house, helped us get in and showed us everything we needed to know about the house and helped us throughout our stay. JoAnn was great! We thoroughly enjoyed staying in your house!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Location to Dominical was excellent. Have several comments: home does have 2 master suites; but are located at same end of house. One on the first floor and the next directly over on the second floor. Not much privacy as windows are screened and sound travels easily. Exterior small pool we did not use. Manager stated only use is a "still" pool, but actually is equipped with jets and maybe a heater. Should be operational! Would have added to the home experience. Home does not have a dishwasher- not a huge negative but again questionable of the cleanliness of dishes.

Additional paper towel and new sponge per guest would be nice!

Summary: great location, view, needs some TLC.
