This individual private home with two-bedrooms, two and one half bath overlooks the Pacific Ocean at a unique location where you can watch the surf all day long and listen to it all night long. The beach directly below Villa Playa Vista is noted as one of the most picturesque in the area due to the cove created by the peninsula of land that juts into the ocean and the adjoining Tree Island†that is accessible at low tide. Further along the uninterrupted 1.7 mile palm-lined beach you see the anchorage where the local fishermen keep their boats and the rock outcroppings that give the beach its unique character. A fully equipped kitchen will allow you to prepare some of your favorite meals using the local fresh produce and fruits. Your private pool beckons to be enjoyed and the covered terrace will provide hours of outside living, the way most of the locals spend their time with great opportunities for wildlife viewing - especially early in the morning. Villa Playa Vista was the model for this gated community with 24 hour security so it sits on one of the best view spots in the development. Plenty of parking too. The unit is perfect for 2 couples when the two identical master bedrooms are set up with king beds. Two twin-sized beds can be requested to be set up in one the rooms or each room can have a twin set up in addition to the king to increase the sleeping capacity. This makes for close quarters but can work well depending on family needs. Rates are set for four people with a $10 per day per person for more than four people. Internet connectivity is available for your laptop or you can use our equipment at our office just 1 Km. In addition to the amenities that are listed, there are a couple beach chairs you can use for your fun in the sun, the DVD player with a few movies and TV shows is available. Located only 3 Km south of Dominical you are in the heart of all the activities that there are to enjoy in the vicinity including surfing the very popular beach right in Dominical or enjoying the more gentle waves at many of the close-by beaches. Arrangements have been made with the neighbors next door for groups that are as large as 4 couples or more if the dates of occupancy work out. Villa Playa Vista sits on a jungle ridge and so to the rear are views of the primary jungle with roads for your morning walks just outside your front door. There is even a local swimming hole with a gorgeous waterfall just a short distance away. There are beach chairs and a soft cooler you can take to the beach. We have two boogie boards you can rent for your entire visit for $10 each and also a cell phone for calls within Costa Rica at our cost. The owners of the property also own a local real estate company and provide wireless connectivity for your use at their office only 1 Km away or you can use our PC's to catch up on your e-mail (although you may not want to). They can also arrange for reservations at many of the local activities, popular restaurants and provide directions to the beaches the locals think are the best. Car rental and San Jose lodging discounts can also be arranged. A discount for return visitors is offered for those that will want to make this their Dominical tropical home away from home. The owners welcome your inquires and are glad to answer any questions you may have regarding their property, the surrounding area and any aspect of your visit. Things to do include: * Horseback trips through mountains, ocean, and waterfalls. * World class surfing, surf lessons, boogie boarding, yoga. * Snorkeling or diving off Isla de Caños * Hiking, bird watching, whale watching, tide pools, biking. * Local shopping, churches, boutiques, supermarkets, farmers market, restaurants. * Ultra light, ATV adventures, canopy tours. * Nights in the jungle at Hacienda Baru´, Cinema in the Jungle. * River rafting, boating, sea and river kayaking. * World class sport fishing,(reservations weeks in advance recommended), in-shore fishing, river fishing, mangrove tours. * Updated Local Tour Information / Restaurants booklet on-hand. * Doing absolutely nothing Other than one hour each side of high tide you can walk most of the way on the beach to Dominical. We can help you with suggestions for the best restaurants, our favorite local beaches or any other general information about the area. We also own a private studio that is the only rental on that property 1 Km away and if both units are available at the same time, you can receive discounts on both of them and accommodate up to about 10 people with both places (6 adults comfortably and 4 kids) . As the owner of RE/MAX Costa del Sol Properties, I know the area well so check us out WE HAVE HAD GUESTS FROM 49 STATES & ALL CANADIAN PROVINCES. We are trying to have at least one guest from every US state and Canadian Provinces and are offering a 5% discount if you stay at one of our properties and are currently living in Mississippi. For Canada we are still looking for guests from two of the Territories (not Yukon, guests from Whitehorse were here)More
