Tropical Villa Overlooking the Bay of Dominicalito

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Aug 24, 2016
Two luxury bedrooms with full baths, 1 half bath, and pull out couch.

Canto del Mar, the Song of the Sea, is set on landscaped terraces right in the middle of the Costa Ballena, one of the most beautiful places on earth. Behind you the forested Talamanca mountains rise like a backdrop and in front of you the Pacific Ocean’s constantly changing colors and patterns settle your soul.

This condo is within a 10 minute walk downhill to Dominicalito beach. The slight altitude of your tranquil vacation spot is what gives it beautiful views and an ideal setting to catch refreshing breezes off the ocean and the mountains. Just minutes from the coastal highway, it’s a world apart.

To provide luxurious privacy, you will have two bedrooms, each with full baths, plus another half bath. A pull out couch provides room for more guests or the children. Throughout the residence you have beautiful views and a relaxed sense of indoor/outdoor living. Previous guests always comment on the time they spend on the patio inhaling the fresh air and watching toucans, listening to howler monkeys, and calmly enjoying a favorite drink.

A fully equipped kitchen with all of the modern conveniences allows you to be as creative as you want with fresh local ingredients. When you prefer to eat out, there is a variety of restaurants close by with food to savor and settings to remember.

When you’re ready for a bit of adventure, there are many activities to choose from within an hour’s drive: horseback on the beach or to waterfalls, snorkeling, Manual Antonio National Park, SCUBA, fishing, zip lines, nature hikes, yoga classes, ATV and kayak tours, waterfall rapelling – you name it and our manager will help you arrange it.

Dominicalito is just a 3 hour drive on good roads from San Jose. When you book your reservation, we will give you clear directions for getting here. Many visitors rent a car and drive themselves, but your manager/personal concerige will be happy to arrange for a courteous, safe, private driver if you prefer. Either way the variety of landscapes you drive through will make the drive go quickly.

Awe Inspiring Views Appear as You Open The Door

  • 5 of 5

Canto del Mar offers the unique opportunity to experience a more authentic Costa Rica. Though all of your basic amenities are provided, some rather luxurious, the carefully maintained landscape holds the essence of the Jungle.

The sights and sounds you experience are magical, particularly in this villa which captures the sunrise & sunset with perfect unobscured views and is surrounded by Ylang Ylang Trees, the most celebrated flowering trees in the world, take advantage of its intoxicatingly rich floral fragrance at sunset with a glass of organic wine from local growers. A short walk down the hill leads you back to the main road and access to the Dominical Beaches. This in and of itself is an adventure in true "Tico" living. A quant beach/surf town, these beaches offer unforgettable scenery and unique treasure hunting! Tiny huts, merchants and local food & drink options run the length of the beach flanking a charming cobblestone walkway. Try the ceviche at Tortilla Flats and the Monkey Balls at Mongo Congo. Wifi can easily be found in town and works quite efficiently in the Canto Villa as well. I spent 2 months in the Dominical area and plan to return to Canto on my next visit. Truly an extraordinary property.

Breath taking views, close to shopping, beach and activities. Nestled in a paradise, where monkeys parrots and tocans frequented daily. The best spot on earth.

Elegance in the jungle

  • 5 of 5

With a Spectacular view of Dominicalito Bay, this 2-story villa sits in a gated complex just 4km from Dominical. Luxurious, spotless, secure and comfortable. Private terrace. Poza Azul is just a 10 minute walk, as is the beach. 4x4 is recommended to access the villa.

Relaxing week in Dominical, Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for my husband and I and our friends. Everything we hoped for and more. Walk to the beach. A few minutes by car to restaurants and grocery store. We cooked our own dinner a couple of nights in the great kitchen and just drank wine and listened to waves crashing below. Saw Toucans every morning before we took off on one of our many excursions all within an hour of this wonderful villa. Will be back as soon as possible. Plan to stay at least two weeks next time!

Owner's Response: It was our pleasure having you experience what it is like to be wearing our shoes, or going barefoot on the beach! Been living here for the past 15 years, and really seems like a dream that just keeps getting better! I am glad you enjoyed your stay, and we look forward to your next vist! Pura Vida!

Wonderful Villa with Spectacular views.

  • 5 of 5

Amazing Villa, Well Appointed with Spectacular views. Very conveniently located, close to town. Easy drive to villa. Property was very clean. Management was extremely nice and helped us get settled in. Spent a lot of time on the patio enjoying the view and watching the wildlife. If you want a slice of paradise with the amenities of the Ritz, stay here. You won't be disappointed.

Location

Activity and Interests

Car: recommended

The Villa is uniquely positioned on a lush jungle mountainside (4x4 recommended) directly above the bay, and the surrounding area is undeveloped, and pristine. An over abundance of natural attractions like the Nauyaca waterfall, the Diamante Falls, and Hacienda Baru wildlife refuge, and Manuel Antonio National park are a few that you do not want to miss!
