This house is located in an absolutely beautiful setting, surrounded by nature. It is slightly off the beaten path, a bit of a drive to most restaurants, groceries, etc. We really enjoyed the short hike down to the waterfall. Even though it is very open, there were very few bugs.
Paradise in the Hills
Oh man, this place is amazing! We truly felt like we were staying at a spa or eco retreat. It's a gnarly drive to reach it, but so worth it. OUTSIDE: The property is gorgeous, with a nice balance of flowers, trees, shrubs and lawn. The view is amazing, whether it's of clouds settling into the hills below or the actual ocean in the distance. You're largely above it all. The trail to the waterfalls is a great little nature walk (a family of coati crossed our path) and the falls are beautiful. There's also a nice pool if you don't want to deal with the wild. We loved waking up with the birds and we easily spotted over 20 species during our stay. Toucans were regulars, but we also spied a Laughing Falcon and a Trogon among many others. INSIDE: The home is larger and more spacious than I expected. It's loft-like and a great example of rustic/modern fusion. The kitchen was open and perfect for cooking for the 4 of us. The beds were comfortable and extra secure with high-quality mosquito nets (though we didn't really need them, we see more mosquitos at home in Denver). THE EXTRAS: Maria welcomed us and provided fantastic on-site assistance. She did a small load of laundry for us and also gave us some fresh jackfruit to enjoy. We enjoyed going down to Domenical for breakfast at Cafe Mono Congo and dinner at Phat Noodle, and the beach a little further away at Domenicalito was perfect for the kids to explore and play. We spent 4 weeks in Costa Rica and this was our favorite place. When we come back, this place is first on our list.
Beautiful bird watching
I miss sitting on the porch and watching the toucans fly by. We had a great time and found it to be a peaceful respite with beautiful views. The yard is amazing with beautiful flowers abound. We didn't miss the AC as the cool mountain air with the windows open was sufficient. We did not have any issues with mosquitos. Great place.
Thanks Shannon. It is a pleasure to have people enjoying the place and what we have put around it. Really. You can come back any time!
A piece of Paradise!
If you are looking for an off the beaten path piece of paradise this is the place. This stunning home has been designed and decorated to bring the outside in so that you can take advantage of every view. The kitchen is equipped with everything you need and there are many thoughtful touches through out including binoculars, Spanish dictionaries, flora/fauna books, candles and candle sticks. The herb and vegetable garden is another added bonus. The arugula was the best we've ever eaten.
The waterfall is a must do, you could spend all day down there!! On our final morning two toucans were in a nearby a tree eating berries, such a treat for us. Thank you to Maria and Jose so taking care of everything for us while respecting our privacy. We have vowed to come back to this magnetic place.
We got to really experience Costa Rica here. It was nice to be surrounded by locals rather than tourist. It wasn’t too long of a drive to get to waterfalls or beaches. The house had everything we needed and the views were amazing. As other comments have said the pictures of the jungle pool do not do it justice. We love this place.
Jose and Maria were delightful and so very helpful. We will be back.
Perfect getaway close to Dominical & Manuel Antonio
My fiance and I recently stayed at Maryse's wonderful home located in Perez Zeledon. This was our first stay in Costa Rica so booking a house without being able to visit before was a bit nerve wracking. All in all we are so glad we chose to go with this home. Maria and Jose, the caretakers of the property are so wonderful (as well as their daughters and dogs). We had an incredible time staying in the home, waking up to the rainforest and sunny mornings, being able to open up all of the doors for the fresh air and truly get to experience Costa Rica away from everything else. This house is in a great location, 20-25 mins from the nice beach town of Dominical, 30 mins to Quepos/Manuel Antonio, and close to shopping in San Isidro. The waterfall (jungle pool) on the property was absolutely incredible, one of those things that you cant believe it until you see it. I was able to get a lot of great photos of flowers, toucans and sunsets while at this property. I would recommend staying at this home to anyone who has either visited Costa Rica already or for their first stay.
An der Kreuzung von Himmel und Meer, befindet sich das Hotel auf einem Hügel und ist von Halterungen in verschiedenen Größen umgeben. Das Gebiet schwankt zwischen Wald und in der Landwirtschaft, und lässt Kühe und Veals grasen auf den ausgedehnten Weiden in der Zwischenzeit. Vogelstimmen sind die wichtigsten Geräusche throuhout den Tagen und Grüntönen und Farben ihren vielfältigen Variationen aussetzen all around.
