House of Jupiter is a beautiful spacious home in the jungle covered mountains above Dominical. We pride ourselves on being eco friendly and carbon neutral. The house is solar powered, but also still tied to the grid so we never run out of electricity. We also have the best potable water in Costa Rica which we receive from a nearby spring, then it goes through the filtering process and it's ready to drink. The majority of the furniture was made locally from sustainably havested bamboo. The house has a very fresh and open feel with 14 foot cathedral ceilings covered in bamboo and large windows everywhere with lots of new screens to keep the bugs out and let in the breeze off of the pacific ocean. We're located at a perfect 1000 feet elevation with incredible views and in pure jungle so the temperatures aren't as hot than if at sea level. 4 bedrooms with 5 memory foam beds. The main bathroom has a giant concrete bathtub and shower that has a jungle view and sometimes you can see toucans, a sloth, or monkeys while bathing. Fully furnished kitchen and dining area. Giant terrace/balcony that is a great place to relax or do yoga (3 yoga matts included) with lots of seating and 2 oversized hammocks. A sitting area. Living room with 50' tv, satellite tv, blueray player and the ever important WIFI. Guest access: This listing is for a very large villa which is the entire upstairs of the house and is larger than most homes. It sleeps 9 comfortably in 5 beds with a maximum occupancy of 11. It is everything that you see in the photos including swimming pool, patio, bbq grill, 4 bedrooms, kitchen and dining area, living room, 1.5 bathrooms, sitting area, and a massive balcony with lots of seating and large hammocks. We created this listing to make a more affordable option for small groups where you are renting the entire top half of the home and paying per guest. Prices are calculated similar to a hotel (seasonal base price for 2 people and only $25 for each additional guest). It's a much cheaper option instead of paying for an entire 6 bedroom home. But if you have a group that needs more than 5 beds you will need to rent the entire home which we have a separate listing for. Renting the entire home adds the smaller and more basic downstairs to your accommodations, including another kitchen, 1.5 bathrooms, 2 bedrooms and airconditioning. Interaction with guest: I can arrange rental cars, tours/activities, surf lessons, etc and do not need a credit card. Just give me a full name and the dates you want and I'll make reservations for you. If you need anything, I am more than happy to help with any planning. There are several beautiful well known waterfalls in the area but I also know of several that are still secret and private to the rest of the world that I can give you a map to. If you don't want to drive I can arrange a shuttle to the house. The neighborhood overview: A private community up in the jungle covered mountains near Dominical with incredible mountain and ocean views. Only 5.2 miles from the beach but at over 1000 ft elevation so the temperatures are more comfortable and fresh feeling than the beach. Just a short drive from 2 different beaches. One, a famous touristy surfing beach and the other a completely natural deserted beach where you can walk for miles sometimes and not see people. Our little piece of paradise is surrounded by national forest preserve so we are visited by many animals. You will feel like you are a million miles from the rest of the world but the beach town of Dominical and many activities are only a 12 to 15 minute drive away. Getting around: I am more that willing to meet our guest in Dominical and give them a ride (free of charge) to the house or if you're in a car you can follow me to the house. If you don't want to drive I can arrange a shuttle to the house. Then you can rent a car just for the days you are in the area. Just ask me about it and we can agree on a price in advance. As with most places in Costa Rica that aren't on a paved highway, 4x4 is highly suggested mainly because of the ground clearance but it isn't absolutely necessary during the dry season. Front wheel drive car can manage just fine but I would not recommend a rear wheel drive car because of the lack of traction on the hills. Rainy season I only suggest 4x4's because rental companies use poor quality tires that are not all-terrain. The town of Dominical and the little pueblo of Baru at the entrance to our community has bus stops and a regular and dependable bus system that can take you all over costa rica for a couple dollars. Taxis are also availabe to and from the house.More

Getting around
As with most places in Costa Rica that aren't on a paved highway, 4x4 is highly recommended. It's possible in a front wheel drive car with good tires and with good ground clearance during the dry season or when the road is in good condition. But even visiting Dominical, beaches, waterfalls, any anywhere that isn't paved could be difficult without the ground clearance of a SUV. Thats why I only suggest 4x4's because rental companies use poor quality tires that are not all-terrain and road conditions change with the seasons.
