Rainy Season in Paradise
My wife and two teenage sons stayed here for five nights in May/June 2019 and we loved it! If you want a beautiful view, this is the place! I loved being surrounded by the rainforest with all its comforting sounds. The pool and patio is so very relaxing. The A/C units work very well. Even though the drive up to the house was scary on the first night in the dark and pouring rain, it became a fun journey each time out because of the views. As the owners say, 4x4 REQUIRED! We spent time in Dominical, but enjoyed Quepos and Manuel Antonio beach more. Thanks to DeeDee for the excursion recommendations.
This is the place.
The house is beautiful,everything is perfect. love the master bath shower.and the beds are so comfortable.
The large patio is fantastic. Pool is the perfect temperature, and to beable to be in the pool and overlook the valleys amazing veiws and just listen to all the birds and animals.We had 2 toucans that came to visit morning and evening.
Alex and Deedee are great. gave us all kinds of recommendations on where to go to eat and things to do.
My favorite resturant for breakfast was porque no?. And favorite dinner was at the very top of the hill Rancho Los Compaires.Went snorkeling with Bahia adventuras great company.
But my favorite was the Mangrove Monkey Tour.
You will not be disappointed if you book this house. Cant wait to go back.
Mid to late March vacation
Even though everyone in Costa Rica says it is the driest it’s ever been here in the last ten years, it is still greener and warmer than the snow and cold we left behind in Colorado. Casa Kendall Baru, in the Cascada Azul gated community, is a beautiful place to stay. It is a recent construction and only a few people have stayed here before us. The Kendall family did an exceptional job with the layout of the three bedroom two bathrooms home. There is a free standing enclosed bathroom as well (outside) along with an outdoor shower. The pool is situated in a way to get full sun to heat it from mid morning to mid afternoon (this time of year) and the water stays warm all day; so, a person can take a refreshing plunge at any time.
A person does need four wheel drive to get to the property. We found out we needed four wheel drive to get around a lot of roads in the Costa Rica Dominical region because a lot of the roads are unpaved and at steep inclines.
There are trees, hibiscus, jasmine and butterfly plants on the property.
We have seen toucans, vultures, red-winged black bird, several smaller birds, as well as a jagaurundi, armadillo, pesotes, and a sloth. Other people living in the area have seen monkeys as well.
We look forward to returning during the rainy season to see the differences in the terrain and foliage.
We absolutely loved everything about our stay. The home itself had plenty of space and was clean and very comfortable. The outdoor patio and pool with the magnificent view couldn’t have offered more. We loved getting up early and watching the wildlife then grilling and swimming in the evenings as the sun went down. It was the perfect place to stay and the perfect vacation. We can’t wait to come back!
We really enjoyed our stay here. If you need to get away, this is the place. Nothing but breathtaking views, very peaceful and beautiful sunsets. The house had everything we needed and very clean. We will definitely be returning in the future.
Thank you for oppening your doors to us!
This tranquil hideaway has spectacular views and extremely comfortable beds.
We were very impressed that the property is close enough to main roads to feel very connected to the surrounding communities of Dominical, Platanillo, and Uvita, yet far enough away to provide us tranquil repose from the crowded and more touristy accomodations. The pool and rancho-style kitchen are situated atop a picturesque landscape which never failed to provide us with the perfect sunset. The home is spacious enough for two families to have plenty of privacy, yet also share communal meals and conversations. All the modern aminities are provided and we especially appreciated the spacious beds, hot water, washer/dryer, pool, and the beautiful kitchens (both indoors and out). Alex and Deedee are superb hosts giving us all the inside tips on where to go and what to do. We will definitely be returning!
