vacation rental description

Casa de los Sueños is a 3 bedroom/2 bath home on 13 very private, quiet and secluded acres nestled beside a rainforest reserve in the Escaleras Mountains. The property offers spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. View year round breath taking sunsets over the ocean from two of the three bedrooms, the great room and pool patio, since the back of the house faces due west. The house sits 1000 feet above sea level and is surrounded by lush rainforest and tropical gardens. Much of the terrain was reforested with native Costa Rican hardwoods, and fruit and flowering trees. There are ample opportunities to spot wildlife on the property such as toucans, white faced-monkeys, howler monkeys, coati, two- toed sloths, the rare ant-eater and the stunning morpho butterfly.

The property has its own private “above the rainforest canopy” observation platform 100 feet above the jungle floor in a majestic Ceiba tree with a girth of around 35 feet at its base and about 12 feet at the level of the platform. The ancient Maya of Central America believed that a great Ceiba tree stood at the center of the earth, connecting the terrestrial world to the spirit world above. The platform can be reached by single rope climbing technique with a hired professional guide. The guide will train you with the skills you will need for this amazing, rewarding and fun activity. Arrangements can be made at the time of reservation for your private platform climbing adventure tour.

The three bedrooms are air conditioned and will comfortably sleep six. The great room includes the dining room, living room, a fully equipped kitchen, and wet bar. A laundry room with washing machine and dryer is located off the kitchen. The house has all new furnishings, Satellite TV service, WiFi internet service, DVD and CD players. The master bedroom suite has a king size bed and sliding glass doors to the pool and patio. It also has a large bathroom with shower and a Jacuzzi bathtub. Another full bathroom is conveniently located between the other two bedrooms, one with queen bed and the other with two twin beds. Housekeeping service is provided once a week, as well as a full time caretaker/gardener six days a week. There is also a large gate at the entrance to the property.

The house is less than 4 kilometers south of the village of Dominical. Located in a very unique region of Costa Rica where the mountains meet the sea, Casa de los Sueños is about 2 kilometers up into the Escaleras Mountains. Therefore, a four-wheel drive vehicle is recommended.

Whether you choose to go tree climbing or enjoy the many activities available in the area, you will certainly not be disappointed with your stay at Casa de los Sueños.

Truly a "Dream House"

Review submitted: June 20, 2014   Date of arrival: June 8, 2014

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We have used VRBO many times and have always been satisfied, but your home was the most beautiful and well equipt home we have ever stayed in. It was sparkling clean and the welcome basket was an added treat. We have two older kids, 20 and 17, and there was more than enough room. We all enjoyed the pool and the spectacular sunsets from the patio. We enjoyed seeing countless birds daily-toucans, parrots, Cusingas,etc. And hearing the Howler monkeys every morning was a wonderful experience. Definately need a 4x4-but road is fine. Follow Massi's directions-no problemo!
Communication was answered promptly by Massi and Silvia via email. Gerrado, who is very kind and unobtrusive, even showed us to the Ceiba tree on the property.
In the area, we went to Dominical and shopped along the beach with the local venders. Ate at Tortilla Flats and La Parcela-both great. Also bought fresh Mahi and Tuna to cook from La Mancha-yummy! Rented kayaks and surf boards from Tito and Diego at Uvita 360 a couple of times-great guys. Did the Osa Canapy Tour, which Silvia set up for us. Great adventure and professional operation. On our way back we stopped by the Terraba River and saw 11 Scarlet Macaws! Hiked Hacienda Baru-saw a sloth! Very cool place and is close by. On the last day went down to Poza Azul waterfall and our son loved the rope swing.
Can't say enough positive things about the house, the owners, staff and the area...We hated to leave this paradise and want to come back soon!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with teenagers, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thank you for the kind review! It seems you were able to take in the many sights and tours that are available in the area. Also, the wildlife is amazing in Costa Rica, it is quite stunning to see the Scarlet Macaws in the wild too, free to fly wherever they choose. We are happy that you were very satisfied with the house, I've said this many times, we are blessed to have such wonderful staff to help us care for our home and make it the best that it can be. Thank you again!

Trip of a Lifetime!!

Review submitted: August 12, 2014   Date of arrival: July 25, 2014

We had a wonderful time visiting the beautiful country of Costa Rica. Casa de los Suenos was such a nice retreat to enjoy the wildlife and just relax. The home was very well maintained and equipped with everything we needed. Silvia was very helpful in helping us book a fishing trip, canyon ziplining at night, white water rafting on the Savegre River and a snorkeling trip to Cano Island. The sunsets were amazing relaxing in the pool after our adventure of the day. Tracy was most helpful in the booking of our reservation and the followup with suggestions of places to eat, shop and area beaches.

Tracy, thank you for sharing your lovely home with us. The welcome basket was such an added touch to make us feel so very welcome! We can't wait to return and bring others to share our experience.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Costa Rica is a great place to relax and enjoy the wildlife or enjoy many of the great tours that are offered in the area. We're happy that Silvia was able to arrange so many great tours for you and your family. We like to help guests with information about local restaurants, grocery stores and beaches since many are unfamiliar with the area. Thank you for choosing Casa de los Sueños and we hope you will return to visit Costa Rica and our home again. Thank you!

Better than advertised!!!

Review submitted: August 2, 2014   Date of arrival: July 14, 2014

Casa de los Suenos was by far the nicest, best equipped and well maintained home we have ever booked through VRBO! I would expect that there are few if any homes with as much to offer in the Domincal area. The layout of the home is perfect for a family with children of any age and very comfortable all around. The house was spotless inside and out. Really quite impressive given that's it's in the middle of the jungle! We've shown many friends and family the hundreds of pictures of our trip and the pictures of the house get as many positive comments as the pictures of the animals, sunsets, waterfalls etc. We are nature lovers and in addition to the birds, bugs and animals that we saw every day, everywhere we went, we were especially thrilled to see the pair of toucans that were at the house each day as well as the Howler monkey family that would sit in the trees over the house watching us watch them from the pool. The house was just perfect and in the perfect location to explore anywhere from Quepos to the Osa peninsula. We had a few questions and needed the kitchen light fixed while we were there and Massi (at the mgmnt company) answered my emails within minutes each time and he took care of everything as promised. We only got to visit with Gerardo (gardener) two or three times during our time at the house, we speak little or no Spanish but his big smile made the whole interaction a lot of fun each time even though we didn't really understand a word of it. We did get out of it that he wanted to be sure there were no problems and something about not trying to pick up los aranas....no problem there! We didn't have a bad meal at any restaurant we went to during our stay and would recommend, Jolly Roger, Tortilla Flats, El Avion, Roadshack Deli, Dominical Sushi, La Fogata, La Macha, Tiki Bar, Happy Lobster, Porque No & Soda y Nanyoa. July is a great time to visit and most places only had two or three other tables with customers during the peak of lunch or dinner. For the adventurous....Costa Canyoning has a day trip you'll never forget. A hike down/through the river and rappeling down six waterfalls (25 to 85 feet high) along the way. It was a great time for all of us ages 10 to 50! Also don't miss the horseback ride and swimming at Nauyaca falls if you have the time. We were sad to go at the end of our nine days, everyone in the small towns of Dominical and Uvita were very friendly and we never felt unsafe. We can't wait to return!

Owners response: It sounds like you had a very nice vacation and we are very grateful for the nice review! It sounds like you were able to take in a lot of the sights that the area offers and enjoy many of the wonderful restaurants in the vicinity of Casa de los Suenos. Howler monkeys and toucans are very good sightings and are usually nearby if not on the property. We have many of the flowering and fruiting trees that draw them to our property when in abundance. We can't say enough about how happy we are with the company that manages our home and how quickly Massi or Adriano respond to any issues that may arise with our home or property. We are also very pleased with Gerardo and his family for keeping the house and property tidy. Thank you and we do hope that you will one day return to Casa de los Suenos!
