  • Awesome people, awesome property, perfect location....

    "This is a perfect base for an adventurous visit to Costa Rica! Elizabeth and Eduardo, the owners, live just below the rental. They were absolutely wonderful to work with. They helped us before the trip with everything from making sure our cell phones would work, to sorting out and making reservations for activities, to providing perfect directions for finding the place in the dark. Once we were there, Elizabeth and her family (including three very friendly loving dogs) very much embraced us at the level we wanted. When we needed help finding something in the house, they were there, but they were never intruding. Elizabeth was wonderful at being available by email whenever we had a question. Eduardo and Elizabeth invited us to join them for a bonfire for New Year's Eve, which was a great time. They are lovely people, and we enjoyed their children Cooper and Shane a lot too! The home itself was great! It has four very separate bedrooms, and one huge great room/kitchen area joining all of them. We were two couple and two single people, and we all had plenty of space and privacy; while at the same time there was plenty of room to work as a group in the kitchen, and hang out on the deck together. The house is only a few years old, and is in great shape. There is plenty of everything in the kitchen for you to use, and everything works. Because the home is on the edge of the jungle, you will definitely see lots of birds, butterflys, flowers, and the corresponding insects. This is not a sterile inclusive resort, but a very clean and tidy home on the edge of the jungle. Expect the howler monkeys to wake you most mornings, which we all thought was very cool! The driveway is steep and exciting as you come up the hill from Dominicalita. If you are from the country, it's no big deal. If you aren't used to challenging dirt roads, well, you will be fine but don't be surprised. Both for easy access to this place and for getting around, it is nice to have a roomy 4 wheel drive vehicle. The local people are also wonderful. Dominicalita, a couple km away, is a sweet little very local town where you can get basic groceries and lots of smiles. Basic Spanish knowledge is helpful, but not required. You can get to tons of activities within a half hour drive. We are all happy to endorse Elizabeth and this rental...we give it 5 stars. Mike from Michigan"

  • Super fun

    "Gorgeous grounds, away from everything, and so much character. We loved it here. Also, having our first breakfast groceries taken care of, umbrellas, a bag of charcoal, and a full box of dry wood for the fire pit were very nice touches. Don't miss Nauyaca waterfalls nearby! They're truly truly amazing. Before booking , you MUST know this is not going to be a luxury resort experience. There are no glass windows, only wooden panels that completely open, you pretty much live outside, in the heart of the jungle. One of the casitas has no walls at all, you're sleeping outside, with a roof over your head. It's very fun and romantic, but just to give you a sense of what it;s like, the swimming pool 8 feet away is the night home of 6 to 10 green frogs, 1 huge toad, and the cutest little baby boa (about 18 inches long). You can find them in and around the pool most nights. We found the boa chilling on the outdoor shower floor one evening. So if this doesn't sound like a fun adventure to you, you will not be happy here. A couple little things you might also know beforehand: - The beach is about 25 - 30 minutes from the house by car. - You MUST have a 4x4 to get through the 2km of rocky paths of the main road. - Wifi is slow. It works, but if you need to get work done, I found my cell phone 3G connection to be faster, so plan accordingly. - It's very difficult to get anything to dry because of humidity. One towel per guest was provided, but I wish we had a few more. - We discovered that what looked like a bookshelf between 2 doors in the main house was actually a ladder to a loft with 2 twin mattresses. Maria hadn't show that to us, or maybe I just misunderstood since I don't speak Spanish, but this was very useful since we only had one couple in our group of 6. I would definitely come back. Amazing jungle home."

  • Beautiful View and Great Location/Needs Maintenance

    "The view from this villa is incredible!! It is conveniently located within walking distance to the beach and short drive to several restaurants in Dominical. Wildlife is abundant as we saw several howler monkeys, white faced monkeys, and toucans in the area. The drive to the villa is steep but on a very well maintained road. The villa needs some minor maintenance. The garbage disposal wasn't working, locks on the sliding glass doors didn't lock, several light bulbs blown inside and outside, dishwasher leaked, and the sink leaked when trying to drain a full sink of water. Overall, a great stay."
