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!

Amazing!!

Review submitted: July 18, 2014   Date of arrival: July 3, 2014

What a wonderful way to start off our vacation in Costa Rica! It's hard to know where to start. The view was incredible, the pool delightful, the house just beautiful! It had everything we needed. The washer and dryer were a major plus. We spent our days investigating the area - ATV ride, surf lessons, boat tour in Sierpe, and hanging on the beach. Coming back to the house to make home cooked meals and watch the sunset was one of the highlights of each day. The road up is an adventure, but after one or two times, we had it down! It was hard to leave, but we will be back. Tracy - thank you for sharing your beautiful house with us and the lovely welcome basket - our stay was definitely the highlight of our Costa Rican adventure!

Owners response: Thank you so much for your kind review, we are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Casa de los Sueños. We also enjoy watching the sunsets and making dinner at the house. The sunsets can be very beautiful, some of the best that we've ever seen! The road up to the house is an adventure, but that's one of the reasons we bought there, the view of the Pacific is amazing. We hope that you will return to Casa de los Sueños in the future. Thank you again for the kind review! All the best to you and your family.

Wonderful stay- amazing experiences!

Review submitted: July 7, 2014   Date of arrival: June 24, 2014

Amazing adventures! We selected this property because of the location, the setting in the rainforest, and the climbing tree. We were not disappointed! The house is beautiful and well furnished. Plenty of towels, cookware, snorkel gear, beach chairs, and more. We would go back to this house in a heart beat! The owners connected us with their rental management company (Massi) which included a concierge service (Sylvia). Massi and Sylvia were always immediately responsive to all of our questions. We did not have any difficulty with ants, other insects, or snakes in the house! Plenty of wildlife outside though. We heard howler monkeys daily, but they never kept us up. We saw toucans, a sloth, and a family of Jungle frogs (loud!) on the property. The pool was beautiful and well-maintained. WiFi spotty, but that was not unexpected for us, given where we were and that we were there in the Green season. Massi kept us up to date when the Wifi went out (local outage - not house related) and it was restored. Sylvia booked our tours and we were not disappointed by any of them. Upon recommendation of the owners, we had a tree climbing expert (Owen) come to the house and help us climb the huge tree - a wonderful experience and unique to this house! We also had a local chef come cook a meal for us- the best meal we had! We went white water rafting on the Coto Brus, arranged by the concierge. Our group was the only group on the river! Terrific Class III and IV rapids with great guides. Breakfast and lunch were served at a local open air restaurant near the river. We also took a book ride tour to Corcovado National Park. This tour was amazing! We also explored the town of Dominical, nearby beaches, ziplines, canopy tours, waterfalls, and more! Although we came during rainy season, the weather did not deter any of our plans. Rain tended to come later afternoons so mornings were great for touring and seeing wildlife. Bottom line- you can't do better than here!

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

Owners response: Rainy season is a great time to visit Costa Rica, it's our favorite time. The colorful birds, butterflies and flowers are out in abundance due to the rain allowing for the blooming of many fruit and flower trees. The landscape is very green and beautiful. We are glad that you could take advantage of the many tours that are offered in the area and that Silvia was very helpful. The waterfalls flows are very strong in rainy season and are fun to visit as well as the rivers for white water rafting. Not many of our renters choose to climb the Ceiba tree and we're happy that you enjoyed the experience! Owen is a very skilled climber and very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna of the forest. We're sorry that there was an internet issue during your stay. Services can be spotty at times in Costa Rica, especially during rainy season. It sounds like you had a wonderful adventure though and we hope you will some day return to Casa de los Sueños for another one. Thank you!
