vacation rental description

'Your house is phenomenal- the layout works for privacy and the common room brings all together . We did the horseback falls, rain forest zip lines, swam in the Pacific, skinny dipped in your jungle pool, drank much too much, ate like royalty and read 12 books collectively. Absolutely wonderful. For sure a return trip in the future.' B. Given

'We had a wonderful week: your house is delightful... This was one of a few vacations that I was not looking forward to going back home.' D. Sidney

'We had an awesome time. Your place is beautiful (jungle pools are my new favorite) and we found all to be in good order. If any problems arose, M and J were quick to fix and very pleasant. We would love to have them here on a daily basis! ' M. Lotte

'We cannot possibly describe the magnificent time we had at your home. We were completely spellbound by its beauty and by your touch and details. I hope to bring my brother, the real birder of the two of us next year for his 50th birthday. I know I will never see him as he will be up at dawn and not back till dusk.(I spent hours birding myself!) We saw and confirmed 42 bird species from your deck including a pair of laughing falcons. WOW!' S. Mooney

***

Very private, exotic house with spectacular view over valley to the sea. Very romantic. Unbelievable sunsets. The house is a labor of love, but the spot alone makes living here delicious.

Perched on the edge of a 50-acre tree farm, the deck is a great place to watch falcons, kites, toucans and chattering flocks of parrots. Hummingbirds visit nearby flowers (arbors and pergolas make plants part of the architecture), and butterflies occasionally fly through the house.

Because of the elevation, biting insects are almost nil. Days are hot but there's always a breeze; nights are fresher and good for sleeping. Unlike lower elevations, the area stays lush and green all year.

Bougainvillea, palms and other tropicals share the stage w/ azaleas, tree ferns, and jasmine, which rambles up the outdoor showers. The gardens have been planted with perfume in mind. Mornings ring with birdsong and are a good time for a hike. Afternoon heat is beat by a 5 min ramble to the waterfalls- great for rainforest exploring and skinny dipping. A little dam creates a 30x40 ' jungle pool. The water is clean and cool, the site wild and beautiful. Or you can go to the beach. ..

Well-situated between Dominical, one of CR's premium surf havens, and San Isidro, a bustling little inland city. We're 30 min from each.On the way to Dominical, reserve for a 1-day horseback trip to Nuayuca Falls, a spectacular cataract and swimming hole. You stop halfway there for breakfast and halfway back for lunch at the family ranch w/ resident toucans and scarlet macaws. Dominical is a bit of a scene; you'll find several restaurants and nice surfer atmosphere. There are nature reserves w/ wildlife tours, zip-lines through the canopy, deep-sea fishing packages (some of the best in the world), and tennis at Rio Mar. 15 min south is Ballena National Pk, a gorgeous string of beaches.

San Isidro is the place to shop for food and anything else you might need. We try to time our errands for Thursdays & the huge open-air market where you find everything from organic arugula to sugarcane.

At the farm , be greeted by a lovely Tico couple who caretake; their home is a sort of gate house. Jose is very responsible and handy, Maria can be hired by the hour ($3) to babysit, housekeep or do laundry. Both are wonderful and trustworthy. About 1/4 mile past their house and into the farm is our home. The floor plan consists of 4 separate structures to provide maximum privacy:

The main house is open on 2 sides (unless you prefer to close the accordion wood doors), and has a beautiful hardwood ceiling. A kitchen with every possible accessory (we love to cook!) gives onto the dining area, where a hardwood table seats eight, ten in a pinch. The LR boasts a bamboo daybed, coffee table, and 4 teak lounge chairs, Flat panel TV with DVD player and collection of movies, Ipod dock stereo player. All water in the house is filtered and bacteria free with Ultra-Violet sanitizing system. Finally, there's a pantry, and a BR with toilet + Mexican ceramic sink/vanity. A ladder climbs to the top of this module, where a loft sleeps to 4 kids

.

Right of the main house, separated by a flower-decked wall, is the master cabina. A smaller version of the main house w/ hardwood ceiling and accordion doors framing a similarly gorgeous view, it holds a queen bed w/ lge custom mosquito net, bamboo armoire, and closet. An outdoor shower and sink framed by jasmine and orchids + a small private garden and seating area provide charm and intimacy.

A second cabina is perched above-right from the first, screened by a garden. It has its own deck and outdoor shower with great view, hardwood ceiling, screened windows. Inside is a queen bed, closet, and small bath with toilet + Mexican sink.

The 3rd cabina is left of the main house, down the deck through a pergola. It has an italian tiled floor and hardwood ceiling set upon four white columns. Locally-made bamboo blinds shield morning breezes. A fragrant hedge provides intimacy and frames a private garden with a table + 4 chairs in teak. Dble bed with generous net, armoire and chairs are all locally-made of bamboo, and a hammoc is slung between 2 columns. It too has a sink/vanity + shower and is very romantic!

traveler reviews for this dominical villa rental

LOVED OUR STAY!!

Review submitted: February 4, 2014   Date of arrival: January 5, 2014

Las Siete Cascadas was just what we needed - 10 days of bliss and relaxation. The house is beautifully situated high up in the mountain with cool breezes, so no need for a/c's. We were mesmerized by the gorgeous views across the valley with the Pacific Ocean in the background, the beautiful grounds with lots of trees and flowers, numerous birds, and the sounds of the jungle, including the sound of the waterfall. All this made us lounge around the house without wanting to leave the property. We'll always remember the two afternoons of torrential rains and watch the fog roll in, while sitting in the living room with all doors wide open to the outside. Totally private and tranquil, we were able to open the two walls to blend the indoors with the beautiful outdoors. It felt like we were living with nature at our foot steps - Pura Vida. The owners, who live on the 50 acres property in their separate house for part of the year, were wonderful from the first time we inquired throughout our stay and their suggestions of places to visit and restaurants to eat were spot on. You do need a 4x4 to drive the 10 minutes to the house on the unpaved road, but it is all worth it when arriving at the property and all its beauty.

Stunning views, magical waterfalls and deep jungle sleeps

Review submitted: January 6, 2014   Date of arrival: December 24, 2013

After one night, I was relaxed, refreshed, and dare say... rejuvenated!!! The cabina is luxuriously and tastefully designed to maximize the experience with nature... in all it's glory. From expansive, panoramic views of the sea (sunset is an event unto itself!!!)... to discovering magical waterfalls and swimming in jungle pools... while in the background there is the steady, nurturing sound of nature (jungle and waterfall!!). The experience is good for the body, mind and soul!
Situated just 30 minutes from the beach, it is very accessible but extremely private. The hosts were incredible and helped us with our every need. Highly recommended for every type of traveller.... and thoroughly enjoyed by this one!!!! A veritable Garden of Eden in the sky!!
