About Judith Adams

I love the outdoors and traveling! Costa is our go-to country, as the nature is profoundly beautiful, the people are gracious and greet you with an open heart, and the food is delicious and nutritious! Great place, great friends, great food = great memories!!

Judith Adams purchased this house in 2009

Why Judith Adams chose San Jose

Los Sueños Dorados is high enough to not only be surrounded by gorgeous moutain views, but able to benefit from the cooler mountains Air that descends at night. This property is bordered by a crystal clear river, with a 40 foot waterfall a short walk downstream. It is an incredible piece of nature.

What makes this house unique

The property is at the end of the road! It is private, but not isolated. You can get there in two wheel drive. The river is beautiful and makes a wonderful and relaxing place to be. The mountain views and surrounding nature will nourish your soul. It is a 15 minute drive to the beach for surfing enthusiasts. There is something for everyone!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello from gray and overcast Washington DC!



We had a lovely stay at your place. What a location! Such a view! The toucans made regular appearances and were well photographed. We had a good rainstorm one evening and lost electricity, but the power was back on by the time we got back from the beach in the afternoon.



We had dinner twice at the local restaurant you recommended -- very pleasant indeed. We also went to PorQueNo, just south of Dominical, and had a fabulous meal (suitable for foodies) with an incredible view of the sunset.



We were regular visitors to the falls below the house. Water levels were low, but still plenty of cool clear water to splash around in. Did a hike up to Nauyaca Waterfall on a hot day - glad we had plenty of water to drink.

Oasis in the Jungle

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful few days. The pool is AMAZING. The house was clean, well stocked (except toilet paper!) and the property immaculate. You can't see any neighbours from the house so you feel very secluded. At dusk the jungle came alive and the sounds of insects was deafening; It was a very cool experience. We stayed with two toddlers; 1 & 3, and the house was completely child friendly. We had to do very minimal child proofing which was a nice change from other rentals that had 'stuff' everywhere. AND IT HAS HOT WATER! Hallelujah! haha

oh, and ALL of the windows are screened. That was a very important thing for us. We would definitely stay again.

Beautiful

Can't wait to come back! Judy's home is wonderfully located close enough to enjoy the local sites but far enough away to kick back and soak up the raw beauty of Costa Rica.

Wonderful quiet seclusion in the "real" Costa Rica jungle..

  • 5 of 5

We had a great trip to Costa Rica and it was due in part to the relaxation we got being on the property. We were close enough to the beach to get that in the mornings and or afternoons along with hours of amazing surfing. We would siesta back at house and explore property and waterfalls late morning and early afternoon and cook up great tico dishes from the local produce stands. When your at the house you cant help but admire all the local flaral and fauna set in the peaceful rain Forrest mountains and just relax. The house was clean, not too hard to access and had everything you need to enjoy your stay. A must for those that want to experience the beach scene yet be able to get away from the tourist and live in the Costa Rica pura vida.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your visit. So glad you were able to enjoy the local area and appreciate the beautiful nature surrounding the house. The surfing is great; those waves call to many who love the ocean and riding its waves. Know it's a great change from Alaska!! Hope you can come back soon...especially in the winter (-;

Wow! Real Costa Rica!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, daughter and I spent two nights in this remote house. The grounds were spectacular. The pool was awesome. We walked to a waterfall from the property. So relaxing. And easy to get to playa Dominical. Don't miss Nuayaca Falks. An incredible hike just down the road. Pura Vida😎✌🏻✌🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻😎

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

Property was clean. A bit challanging to find (only for the first time) when dark so I suggest you try to arrive before sun down. 15min drive to Dominical. Property has no AC but none is required as the climate cools down in the mountains and there are plenty of fans. WIFI works great. Pool is amazing. Lots of spices and utensiles if you plan to buy groceries.
