Holiday Rental House
'Your house is phenomenal- the layout works for privacy and the common room brings all together . We did the horseback falls, rain forest zip lines, swam in the Pacific, skinny dipped in your jungle pool, drank much too much, ate like royalty and read 12 books collectively. Absolutely wonderful. For sure a return trip in the future.' B. Given 'We had an awesome time. Your place is beautiful (jungle pools are my new favorite) and we found all to be in good order. If any problems arose, M and J were quick to fix and very pleasant. We would love to have them here on a daily basis! ' M. Lotte 'We cannot possibly describe the magnificent time we had at your home. We were completely spellbound by its beauty and by your touch and details. I hope to bring my brother, the real birder of the two ...'Your house is phenomenal- the layout works for privacy and the common room brings all together .

We were completely spellbound by its beauty and by your touch and details. I hope to bring my brother, the real birder of the two of us next year for his 50th birthday. I know I will never see him as he will be up at dawn and not back till dusk.(I spent hours birding myself!) We saw and confirmed 42 bird species from your deck including a pair of laughing falcons. WOW!' S. Mooney 'We have been travelling for quite a few months and have stayed in many beautiful places all over the world but this is hands down the most amazing spot of all of the places we have stayed - it is absolute perfection' Anna-Lisa UK Very private, exotic house with spectacular view over valley to the sea. Very romantic. Unbelievable sunsets. The house is a labor of love, but the spot alone makes living here delicious. Perched on the edge of a 50-acre tree farm, the deck is a great place to watch falcons, kites, toucans and chattering flocks of parrots. Hummingbirds visit nearby flowers (arbors and pergolas make plants part of the architecture), and butterflies occasionally fly through the house. Because of the elevation, biting insects are almost nil. Days are hot but there's always a breeze; nights are fresher and good for sleeping. Unlike lower elevations, the area stays lush and green all year. Bougainvillea, palms and other tropicals share the stage w/ azaleas, tree ferns, and jasmine, which rambles up the outdoor showers. The gardens have been planted with perfume in mind. Mornings ring with birdsong and are a good time for a hike. Afternoon heat is beat by a 5 min ramble to the waterfalls- great for rainforest exploring and skinny dipping. A little dam creates a 30x40 ' jungle pool. The water is clean and cool, the site wild and beautiful. Or you can go to the beach. .. Well-situated between Dominical, one of CR's premium surf havens, and San Isidro, a bustling little inland city. We're 30 min from each.On the way to Dominical, reserve for a 1-day horseback trip to Nuayuca Falls, a spectacular cataract and swimming hole. You stop halfway there for breakfast and halfway back for lunch at the family ranch w/ resident toucans and scarlet macaws. Dominical is a bit of a scene; you'll find several restaurants and nice surfer atmosphere. There are nature reserves w/ wildlife tours, zip-lines through the canopy, deep-sea fishing packages (some of the best in the world), and tennis at Rio Mar. 15 min south is Ballena National Pk, a gorgeous string of beaches. San Isidro is the place to shop for food and anything else you might need. We try to time our errands for Thursdays & the huge open-air market where you find everything from organic arugula to sugarcane. At the farm , be greeted by a lovely Tico couple who caretake; their home is a sort of gate house. Jose is very responsible and handy, Maria can be hired by the hour ($3) to babysit, housekeep or do laundry. Both are wonderful and trustworthy. About 1/4 mile past their house and into the farm is our home. The floor plan consists of 4 separate structures to provide maximum privacy: The main house is open on 2 sides (unless you prefer to close the accordion wood doors), and has a beautiful hardwood ceiling. A kitchen with every possible accessory (we love to cook!) gives onto the dining area, where a hardwood table seats eight, ten in a pinch. The LR boasts a bamboo daybed, coffee table, and 4 teak lounge chairs, Flat panel TV with DVD player and collection of movies, Ipod dock stereo player. All water in the house is filtered and bacteria free with Ultra-Violet sanitizing system. Finally, there's a pantry, and a BR with toilet + Mexican ceramic sink/vanity. A ladder climbs to the top of this module, where a loft sleeps to 4 kids . Right of the main house, separated by a flower-decked wall, is the master cabina. holds a queen bed w/ lge custom mosquito net, bamboo armoire, and closet. An outdoor shower and sink framed by jasmine and orchids + a small private garden and seating area provide charm and intimacy. A second cabina is perched above-right from the first, screened by a garden. It has its own deck and outdoor shower with great view, The 3rd cabina is left of the main house, down the deck through a pergola. It has an italian tiled floor. There a 2 bathrooms and 3 showersMore

We arrived to the brilliant glow of the sun setting over the hills and across the Pacific ocean in the distance. I was supposed to be getting a house familiarization tour and all I wanted to do was sit and watch the setting sun, the...More
