We felt like we found a piece of heaven on Earth! The views and wildlife were incredible!
The minute we walked up to the house and turned and looked across the infinity pool with Pacific Ocean in the background we knew we picked the right property for our vacation! The open living area makes it so easy to relax and just sit and wait for the wildlife to present itself and believe me the wildlife here is plentiful! We saw Capuchin monkeys, howler monkeys, toucans, fiery billed Aracari, Agouti and Coati! We did not see any sloths on the property but did see them at the Manuel Antonio National Park. Our bedrooms were very comfortable and the air conditioners kept the room nice a cool for a great nights sleep! The bathrooms upstairs are large with wooden doors that open to the outdoors that allows for the ultimate experience of showering out in the jungle feel! The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed so we didn’t feel like we had to go out for every meal! We enjoyed the charcoal grill for pool side meals! There is a Big grocery in Uvita about 10 minutes away the property and many road side fruit stands, Daryl (the property manager) was very helpful and gave us many tips for shopping and adventures and even made dinner reservations for us one night! Our stay was just the right amount of relaxation mixed with adventure!
Perfect! Thank you for staying in our piece of heaven, looking forward to your return.
Amazing place with amazing views
We cannot say enough about how fabulous this place is. It was immaculate and everything was neat as a pin. It had all of the amenities of home, but in paradise! The views were spectacular we would have been happy just staying at the house, but we did venture out for some surf lessons and a horseback tour of Nauyaca falls. The property manager Daryl arranged everything for us and was available with any issue or question we had. The locals were very friendly and helpful as well. We already booked our next trip! Pura Vida❤
Great to have you guys as guests, we are excited for your return visit next year!
A action in paradise!!!
Our family travels a lot, and so far it was the best place we’ve ever stayed!!! The views from the house are stunning, pool is so good, feels good to chill out there after hiking! Daryl was a big help telling us about good places to eat and activities to do! The most fun for us was watching wild life around us, we were feeding capuci monkeys, coatis, agoutis, toucans, watching birds, lizards, butterflies! Beaches around the plays are so nice, our favorite was Vetanas and Whale’s Tail. Food was good everywhere, we didn’t go to one place twice just because we liked to try as many new places as possible!
Thank you to John and Mary for such a beautiful house, Daryl and Donna for keeping it running so well!!!
Hi Teresa, We are touched you would consider FT the best place you have ever stayed. we would love to have you come back again and will keep your vacation home in great shape until you return. :) John and Mary
Amazing location, views, and property!
Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Flying Toucans! Some of the positives included:
- amazing views and pool
- cleanliness of all the rooms
- awesome master bathroom decorated in jungle theme and feel
- helpful property manager Daryl in booking an adventure snorkeling Cano Island with mangrove tour
- kitchen stocked with essentials upon arrival like coffee and spices
- private parking and really at the whole property...you never have to close the curtains in the rooms, unless you mind monkeys seeing ya :)
- outdoor living space is large and comfortable to lounge around in
- great outdoor speaker for playing tunes while you enjoy the amazing view (and did I mention the pool and view???)
We had a fabulous time and loved being in the middle of Dominical and Uvita!
Thanks Jen for reviewing our property and spending your family summer vacation with us. Come back soon!
Gorgeous home with spectacular views, exciting wildlife and great management
Thanks Sudi, brief and to the point!
Where to begin?! Absolutely incredible!
This was our first visit to Costa Rica as a family. We spent months before our trip researching specific areas and decided on Dominical. When we found Flying Toucans, we knew this was the place! Words cannot begin to describe the breathtaking view you will witness upon arrival to the house. I am pretty certain this is heaven on earth. Daryl was so helpful and arranged all of our excursions for us. We went horseback riding to Nauyaca Falls, had surfing lessons at Playa Dominical, and went fishing with Isidro. What adventures we had! The rest of the time was spent exploring Uvita and Dominical or hanging out at the house. We ate at several sodas and enjoyed them all. Our favorite was actually a little soda in Uvita called Soda ranchito Dona Maria. Highly recommend this excellent little place for great local food! The Baker Bean in Uvita was very good as well. The remainder of the time was spent at beautiful Flying Toucans. It was so difficult to leave this place! The house was clean and beautifully decorated. The beds were super comfortable. Wi-Fi was great! The infinity pool? Oh my word! Our kids rarely got out of it. We saw toucans, coatis, capuchin and howler monkeys, lizards, and even got to meet Tarzan the sloth. I took so many pictures of these guys. I'd also like to add that we were hesitant to come in the rainy season, but I don't think we'll come during any other time in the future. The mornings were nice and breezy. The entire week, it didn't rain until late afternoon/evenings (so the rain never prevented us from doing anything at all). We would spend our evenings playing cards, drinking wine, cooking, and looking out over that stunning ocean--watching the rain fall and listening to the thunder roll past us. John and Mary, thank you so much for sharing your beautiful house with us. Thanks for everything, Daryl! We will be counting down the days until we get to return to Flying Toucans! Kelly Baugher
Ahhh, you guys are the best! We feel the same about FT and love sharing the amazing experience felt there with our guests. Come back soon, John and Mary
The area between Dominical and Uvita on the southern Pacific coast is famous for its striking landscape where the mountains come right down to the water. Not subject to the north's dry, dusty season during the months of December to April, visitors to the Dominical region will enjoy the year-round greenery and lushness of jungles and forests.
While the rural airport in Quepos (30 minutes north of Flying Toucans) may be used, many guests choose to begin their adventure from the main international airport in San Jose (SJO) thus allowing them to see the varied landscape on the way down. The drive down to the villa is 3 hours, not including how many times you stop to take in the awesome views en route. Flying Toucans is six miles south of Dominical on a perfect road. If you can ever pull yourself away from the villa and view you will find abundant choices of dining, shopping, and activities close by.
Other Activities: Ziplines, nature treks, kayaking tours, white water rafting, atv tours
Golf: Besides the new golf course there's LOTS to do around here: Bird and animal watching, surfing, swimming, beach-combing, hiking, horseback tours to beaches and waterfalls, zip lines, day trips to Quepos and Manuel Antonio National Park, butterfly farm, serpentaria (snake exhibition), ultra-light flightseeing tours, sport fishing.
About an hour north of us is Quepos (Manuel Antonio National Park). The casual village of Dominical offers international and local style dining, a bank/ATM, a bakery, small grocery stores, an English-speaking doctor and dentist, pharmacy, real estate offices, souvenir shops, internet cafe, surfboard rentals and visitor information and booking services for local activities. A 2-minute walk from the villa is a small and beautiful European hotel with fine dining and full spa services. The villages of Uvita and Bahia, 6 miles south, offer internet, shops, restaurants, beaches, boat tours, a butterfly farm and the lovely Ballena National Park, home of the 'Whale Tail' (as is seen from Flying Toucans). Obviously absent from our corner of the world are large numbers of tourists, suits/ties/pantyhose and traffic lights... come see for yourself!
