Vacation Rental Description
This brand new 6-bedroom, 6500 square foot luxury home in Dominical, Costa Rica is situated 100 feet above the surf on the coast of Costa Rica's world famous tropical rain forest with dramatic ocean views and soft ocean sounds from every room. This architectural masterpiece is steps from the beach or moments from dinner and dancing in town. Sights and sounds of flora and fauna encase this house set above the white water surf of Dominical beach. The remarkable white water Pacific Ocean views can be seen from every room, and the relaxing sound of the surf gently permeates the environment, creating a very relaxing, natural atmosphere.
The Great Room is the hub of the house with two wings extending from opposite ends, and featuring 25 foot ceilings that make this room truly great. The Great Room is spacious and airy, adorned with over sized lounging sofas, perfect for kicking up your feet and relaxing. The 20' tall sliding glass patio doors connect the great room with the covered patio area next to the pool, which can be opened up, connecting the great room with the patio/pool area. In the Great Room is the state of the art kitchen, featuring an island design with bar stools and plenty of room for cooking, serving and dining on the island counter top. The kitchen features stainless-steel appliances, Viking range and convection oven, over sized refrigerator, ample counter space, walk-in pantry, microwave, blender, cutlery, cookware, and stylish settings for up to 14 people.
Extending from the Great Room is the spacious covered patio that seamlessly blends with the infinity edge pool, with the ocean waves just beyond. The patio has 25' ceilings with large fans, a cozy sitting area, dining table that seats 12, and an outdoor grill. The pool deck has chaise lounge chairs and abundant sunning space. The large 7' deep pool has an infinity edge melding the pool and sea into one continuous span of tropical blue, and is treated with Eco-friendly salts rather than chemicals, which makes it easy on the skin and easy on the eyes.
Connected to the Great Room are the north and south wings of the house, each with a master bedroom and bath upstairs, and two bedrooms downstairs (total of 6 bedrooms). Each wing is a mirror image of the other. Both consist of two bedrooms down stairs that share a central full bath and a laundry facility (total of two washers and dryers), and a master suite upstairs, with two private decks for each master suite (one ocean view and one jungle). The master bedrooms have walk in closets, luxurious bathrooms and balconies. Every bedroom has its own air condition unit and ceiling fan, allowing each guest to adjust the temperature to their liking.
The grounds are landscaped with indigenous flowering tropical plants and trees which attract several species of brightly colored hummingbirds, toucans, fire-billed aracaris, scarlet macaws, and countless other species of birds; butterflies including the majestic iridescent blue Morphos; white-faced monkeys... and more. The span of ocean seen from the house is used by the humpback whale in their annual migration. During several months of the year, families of whales can be seen breaching and playing in the warm salty waters.

Dominical - where the rainforest mountains meet the ocean...
Dominical is the kind of place that people picture when they think about Costa Rica--a small beach/surf town dramatically situated where the towering rain forest mountains meet the ocean. It is the perfect setting for adventure or tranquility, relaxing with a good book, a stroll along the deserted beaches, or just hanging out by the beach or the pool. For a bit more adventure: hike the neighboring waterfalls, venture sea or river kayaking, raft the white water rapids, explore rain forest canopy zip lines, cruise ATV mountain trails, ride horseback, boating, sport fishing, snorkeling, SCUBA diving, and, of course, what Dominical is most well known for …Surfing! Beach breaks and point breaks dot the cost line making the area a well know, but seldom crowded, surf destination.
Our tropical climate has two distinct seasons, wet and dry. The dry season is filled with cloudless bright sunshiny days and clear starry nights. The wet season has brilliant mornings with welcomed cloud coverage in the afternoons. The rolling thunderheads and afternoon shower generally yield to amazing sunsets with fiery oranges illuminating every cloud. During the heaviest of the rainy season, the forest provides the perfect milieu for solitude, silence and inward reflection, coercing any tension out of the mind and body.
Villa Ventanas is the perfect setting for a romantic get-away, fun filled family adventures, intimate weddings, destination gatherings, and reunions of any kind. Daily 24 hour security, concierge, and house cleaning are provided. Laundry service, personal chef, massage therapist, manicure, pedicures, facial treatments, private yoga and exercise classes can be arranged.
Though it's 3 hours away from the capital city of San Jose.
Dominical is only a short 30 minute drive from the regional airport in Palmar Sur and 30 minutes from Quepos. While retaining its small town charm the area offers a variety of restaurants, shopping, car rental agencies, and other conveniences.
