  • Great House

    "The house is beautiful in a quiet secluded area. Each room has it's own bathroom and the guesthouse is ideal for our teenage son."

  • Magical!

    "Stayed for two nights in January with husband and son. You DO need 4-wheel drive but the road isn't too bad - would recommend arriving in daylight if possible. Villa #8 was great- large comfortably furnished rooms with nice showers and well equipped kitchen. All very clean. The Villa would be great anywhere but the location makes it magical. The view across the valley to the sea and the silence broken by exotic bird calls during the day and animal calls in the distance at night. The night sky so clear star gazing at it's best. The pool is perfect and we were in it several times a day. Keison was our contact and was very pleasant and helpful. If you are lucky enough to get a chance to spend time here don't hesitate!"

  • Off the beaten path!

    "Pablo makes the place! He rescued us on the first night thanks to poor Google Maps directions. If you can get to the place, it's amazing! Paths that lead to waterfalls, pool and bar area. Our kids loved it. We loved it. Pablo and Jeffry and the staff made it perfect. Bring DVDs for the theater room. They have a bunch of books to read if that is your thing. Stop at Super-Elizabeth in the town just before the correct turn in order to get some supplies for drinking and eating at the place. Turn after Solo Bueno (a really good seafood place) Look for the Solo Bueno sign to know when to turn."

  • A Return to Our Happy Place

    "This was our second trip to Villa Temenos and we didn't make the mistake of staying anywhere else this time spending two weeks in this singularly spectacular sanctuary. I believe I was the very first person to review the property. Dean is a dream to work with. I love waking each morning to Henry keeping the grounds perfectly groomed. He is full of great information about the flora and fauna. I love that there is great wifi and tons of places to charge your electronics. Temenos is a magical place. It was designed with the utmost care and consideration. It's not trying to be in the South of France or Italy. It was designed to be right where it is at the very tip of the South Pacific 300 feet above the beach. You need to understand that you are in the jungle in a developing nation. This isn't a five star hotel. It's a five star home. There is a difference. Things happen in a jungle. It's constantly trying to take back the perfect grooming to the wild, but that's what makes Temenos so spectacular. I recommend this property to anyone who wants to experience complete beauty and serenity in nature. You absolutely need a four-wheel drive to get up the hill and the driveway. It's close to the cool little town of Domincal, but after dark we rarely left the property because the Bale was the place to be. This is my dream home. I recommend this property to everyone I can. It was great for the four of us. The lower palapa has its own fridge and coffee maker if your guests don't want to come up to the living room in the morning to make coffee. There's a new micro-brewery in town. Phat Noodle, the sushi bar and the fish and chips place were all new since when we were at Temenos in 2013. I've also determined that the best fried chicken in the world is in Costa Rica. I'm not sure why it's better than all other fried chicken, but if you see a fried pollo shop, get a piece. Yum! One cautionary note that doesn't deter us from returning. Shake out your clothes/shoes before packing them or putting them on wherever you stay in Costa Rica. We brought home a scorpion in our suitcase. But we had them in every home we stayed at in Costa Rica in the past four years. They aren't interested in harming you. Just don't shove your foot in a shoe they are sleeping in. I'll be back soon dear Villa Temenos. I can't live long without returning to my favorite place on earth."
