traveler reviews for this dominical house rental

The Perfect Getaway!

Review submitted: January 23, 2013   Date of arrival: January 5, 2013

Our stay here was absolutely lovely! The house is right in the middle of the jungle which makes you feel like you're in a tropical paradise. The views are stunningly beautiful and the house itself is very nice. The location is great because you're tucked away in the jungle, which gives you a great sense of privacy. At the same time, you're minutes away from the beach, as well as the town, so you don't have to go out of your way to get anywhere. There's a great kitchen area that was a lot of fun to cook in and the wrap around balcony is incredible! I think the balcony and views were two of our most favorite things about staying here. We saw so many colorful birds and butterflies outside in the front yard which was awesome. We even saw a sloth down the road on one of our walks to a nearby waterfall. There's a tent platform on the property that you can camp out in which was really cool and there's a downstairs room with two beds that makes it really easy to travel with friends and family. It was so nice to be able to just walk outside and have so many great trails for walking and hiking. It was also nice to be conveniently near the beach and all of the town's restaurants and stores. This was honestly the best vacation I have ever had. Costa Rica is a beautiful place and this house was the perfect home during our stay. If I ever get another chance to visit Costa Rica, I will definitely choose to stay at this wonderful vacation rental again.

Pura Vida! :)

Owners response: Thank you Brittany! I love sharing my Costa Rica home with people such as yourself who really appreciate the many wonderful aspects of this house and location.

Couldn't ask for a better place to stay in dominical. The drive up definitely needs a 4x4 and is a little daunting the first time but that's the fun of Costa Rica! I absolutely loved this place, along with everyone in my group.

Owners response: Very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay!

Beautiful new house; brilliant location

Review submitted: March 27, 2014   Date of arrival: March 6, 2014

The vacation was great! You have a beautiful house. The upstairs/downstairs configuration suited us perfectly with our two older teenagers. We really enjoyed the pool -- very glad you put it in before we got there! We also appreciated the air conditioning in the bedrooms; it helped us get a restful sleep each night.

The caretaker was very helpful and came right away when we had a little trouble with our door lock. His wife did our laundry for a small fee while we were away at the park for the day. Although they don't speak much English (and we don't speak much Spanish), they are very nice people, and we managed with text messaging and our translation app on our phone. It was an adventure in communication!

It was lovely to just sit and listen to the jungle noises, watch the toucans fly by, and eat some fruit while reading our books. On several occasions we walked to the sunset platform; it's a beautiful view over the ocean with amazing sunsets.

I don't know if we'll get back to Costa Rica, but if we do, we would definitely consider staying at your house again. And if anyone we know is headed to Costa Rica, we'll recommend your house as a great place to stay. It was a wonderful experience for all of us!

Owners response: Christina,
Thank you very much for your feedback on the house. I hope you'll be able to come visit again soon!
