Casa De Cinema: Villa with Pool Overlooking the Pacific Ocean

Casa De Cinema: Villa with Pool Overlooking the Pacific Ocean


Property Details

Updated: Aug 11, 2014
Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Many people coming to Dominical think that the best rental would be on the beach. Fact is that it is hot and the mosquito and sand fleas are abundant, no breeze and the smell of the diesel trucks will surely wake you up in the morning. Up in the mountain there is a nice breeze, bugs are at a minimum and it will be the howler monkeys that wake you up in the morning. CASA DE CINEMA. Located 1000' in the Escaleras Mountains is this lovely house overlooking the Pacific Ocean. This is one of the very few private houses with a private pool in this area. One bedroom has a king size water bed and ceiling fan. The other bedroom has a single bed and a double bed with air conditioning. A 32 inch TV with a huge library of DVD's is available for those rainy days. And there is a very comfortable porch with eating area, couch and hammock. A 1/3 mile cement trail goes thru the rainforest. Down the road is the famous Pozo Azul waterfall and swimming hole. A delight for gringos and Ticos. The secluded beach at Playa Dominicalito is only 1.2 miles from the house and we're 3 miles from the center of Dominical.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Travel companion called it paradise, beautiful setting a thousand feet above the Pacific. Tremendous hospitality while completely respectful of privacy. Two bedroom, two baths. wrap around veranda/casita with well placed hammock. private adult pool, perfect for frequent refreshers. Beautiful beaches nearby. Great food @ local restaurants. All services and shopping within 15-30 minutes. Parks, with hiking, light climbing, swimming (ocean & fresh water waterfall) and zip-lining nearby. History, wildlife, flora & fauna, geography information in fun environments. activities at all levels. Very media rich environment with full cinema at top professional standards, as well as dvds systems in guest house. Exceptional media/film library with great sound systems. Diverse library. Relaxing, refreshing, informal, accessible. You do want a 4x4 for the final ascent,especially in the rainy season when we visited.

Thanks Toby & Kim,.

We stayed with Toby & Kim for 3 months in early 2014 while we looked to purchase property in Costa Rica. We found the house to be very comfortable. Great pool & porch overlooking the pool. Toby & Kim were great hosts! Toby is a movie buff so we were well supplied with old movies & TV series from the 50’s & 60's which was a great bonus! Our adult girls came to visit during the holidays & were also well impressed. We spent many evenings in the old open air movie theatre above our house watching spectacular sunsets. They're also located on the road where there is a waterfall which is good for swimming! Also close to Dominical for groceries, restaurants, beaches, etc. This is a great place to stay!

What a bargain this was! A very private location up in the mountain but only 1.5 miles from the most secluded beach we ever saw. Also a nice 1/3 mile cement walking trail in the rainforest. And just a few blocks from a riding stable. The owners put on a pot luck dinner and show movies in the nearby theater on Friday nights for the town during the dry season. We had the best time staying here!!.
