Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bathroom, Private Infinity Pool Overlooking Ocean Views

The Flying Monkey Villa is a villa nestled in the beautiful jungle as it meets the ocean, with stunning panoramic ocean/jungle views from all areas of this luxurious villa. Enjoy the private 'never-ending' infinity pool from the lower bedroom level. Walk straight out onto a large deck and enjoy margaritas you can make at the built-in custom outdoor wet bar. Enjoy the lush tropical landscaping while sitting in the patio furniture, or floating in your private one of a kind vanishing edge swimming pool. Enjoy dinner a level up on your private wrap around deck with pass-through bar seating area, which includes a beautiful thatched palapa, to allow you to dine and visit well into the evening.

The spectacular pool and terrace add an additional 800 square feet of outdoor living space to total over 2700 square feet of indoor/outdoor living space.

The views from every room in the villa allow you to become one with the wildlife of Costa Rica. The Costa Rican wildlife is abundant, especially in the morning when the birds are singing and the monkeys are 'flying' tree to tree across the jungle just below your pool. Toucans and Aracari come by for a visit and the local iguanas will be sure to greet you, while you are sitting under the palapa or relaxing around your private pool.

The lower level includes two bedrooms, each with their own private full bathroom, with his/her sinks. The laundry room and a small living area (that fits a inflatable bed) is also on the lower level. The upper level of the villa includes a spacious living room, dining area, powder room and fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops.

For dining enjoy a huge variety of cuisine at the local restaurants or create your own meals in your kitchen or barbeque on your deck.

The villa is located in a gated community with 24 hour guarded security, so you can rest at ease.

You will also have cable TV and a dock station for your Ipod or Iphone in the living room, as well as WiFi throughout the villa.

There is air conditioning throughout the villa, or you may wish to turn off the a/c and just open all of the screened doors and windows so the breezes and the sounds of the jungle are welcomed in.

Excluding the Holiday Season and Easter Week, your 7th night at the Flying Monkey villa is on us. Stay for a week and only pay for 6 nights.

Staying at the Flying Monkey will be a vacation to beat all.

About Ian & Phyllis

As parents and grandparents, we are excited to introduce our family - and yours - to our Costa Rican home and know that you will enjoy your time here .... the Pura Vida lifestyle.

Ian & Phyllis purchased this villa in 2012

Why Ian & Phyllis chose Dominical

We've traveled throughout several tropical countries before we experienced Costa Rica. We were mesmerized by the beauty of this lush destination on our first visit in 2007 and knew that we wanted to become part of this fabulous country. We have revisited Costa Rica on several occasions until we found the perfect home. We hope you love it as much as we do.

What makes this villa unique

Dominical is where the jungle meets the ocean. Having monkeys, toucans, aracari, iguanas, sloths and other wildlife in our backyard is amazing. We had the pool built in December 2012, which will make your experience at this villa one of a kind.... something to remember. Or adventure to one of the local unspoiled, secluded beaches - so rare in most parts of the world.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you So very much for sharing your Amazing villa with us. We had such an incredible time – definitely not long enough but a good taster for us to know we absolutely want to come back to only Villa #3 (the Flying Monkey). The weather during our stay was hot and humid so we got a lot of use of the pool…. Our concierge, Raul, couldn’t do enough for us from beginning to end …. we will always treasure being our first holiday away together – and one that we are already planning on returning to continue to build upon …

We went horseback riding to the Nauyaca Falls where we enjoyed a Costa Rican breakfast and lunch with some white faced (capuchin) monkeys, macaw, peacocks and a toucan. The waterfalls were breath-taking and the 4 km. ride was not rushed at all. … Our spa day was at our villa where two lovely ladies … an amazing massage and wonderful pedicure. … We also enjoyed a morning stroll down to the beach across the road from our villa. … We went ziplining at Hacienda Baru, which is only about 10 minutes from the villa. This was another great experience in a UNICEF nature reserve where we saw sloths, agoutis and a friendly iguana who walked right up to us ...

We also arranged for a private chef to come in for two nights to prepare us a yummy meal … it was so nice to have someone shop and cook for you … We rented a 4x4 car and took a drive down the coast … within a few minutes of driving we got to see those Howler monkeys everyone has been talking about! … We went kayaking through the mangroves. We saw lots of wildlife including 3 or 4 sloths, monkeys and an assortment of birds plus a boa constrictor … then we raced home to catch the sunset.

The weather during our entire stay was hot and humid so the pool was our point of refreshment coming home and then spending hours on end just soaking up the scenery and talking about our adventures that day…

We couldn’t have asked for more of our stay in your villa and we definitely plan to be back again real soon as we know there is so much more of this amazing place to explore.

Thanks again for sharing and we look forward to our return to Villa #3 (The Flying Monkey).

Beyond expectations

  • 5 of 5

If we could rate over 5 stars we would. This house is beautiful, clean and absolutely amazing. Everything you would want to be apart of an ultimate treehouse experience, enjoy being amongst indigenous wildlife and apart of the jungle, rainforest and beachfront all at once with a breathtaking view and private infinity pool. Owners are quick to respond , convieniet and easy to talk to. Raul the concierge was also the best! He made you feel right at home while making all vacation essentials easy to accommodate, from booking excursions to getting a driver and all in between! Could not have asked for a better experience and can not wait to book our next trip! Trust me you want to stay HERE!

Wow! Wow! Wow!

  • 5 of 5

Wow is what you will be saying the entire time you are at the Flying Monkey! This wonderful vacation spot is too good for words! The location is great. Easy to find, gated, safe, with everything you may need is close. The views from every room and deck area of the villa are extraordinary, and even better from the beautiful private infinity pool. We spend a lot of time in there looking at the ocean, the jungle, the birds and wildlife. The most amazing sunsets happen right in front of you, and the pool and its deck are the perfect place to relax and watch the sun go down.

This villa is very well appointed, clean, well maintained, nicely decorated in tropical flair, and very comfortable. Lots of nice bedding and towels. The two bedrooms ( each with their own bathrooms) both face the view and are on the same level as the pool. There is even an outdoor bar on the pool deck with a sink, small fridge and a blender. Oh so handy for making those yummy dirty monkey drinks! We were not lacking for any amenities at the Flying Monkey villa. The washer and dryer are handy for those sandy towels. Be sure to take in the amazing beaches in the area ( if you can leave the pool that is!) You can walk to a great beach from the villa, and there are several more a quick car trip away. Pack a lunch, the boogey boards and enjoy a great day at these amazing, secluded beaches.

There is a store near by for food and drink supplies. Walk through the town of Dominicalito (very close) and up to the waterfall. Unfortunately, there wasn't much water when we were there, but understand that is it a great swimming spot when the water is running. Tons of great restaurants are close to the villa. A couple of our favourites were Fuego in Dominical and PorQuoNo (sp?) just down the road. For a 5 star dinner, be sure to try Exotica in Ojochal. A little bit of a drive, but sooooo worth it. A definite must do for a special dinner.

Ian and Phyliss, thank you so very much for sharing your beautiful home away from home with us. We would definitely recommend your property to anyone wanting a great vacation stay in the area. We will be back! Everything was perfect!

Oh Wow!

Pura Vida!

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family of 4 (2 university aged daughters) - great having essentially 2 master suites . The setting in the jungle within a gated community allowed us the sense of being away from it all but not too far away to be overly isolated. We could sit for hours either by the pool or on the balcony and enjoy the unobstructed majestic ocean views or the monkeys playing in the trees right outside the door. I would change absolutely nothing about the Flying Monkey. Perfect. The village of Dominical is a few km away and has some great places to eat. Do visit Nauyaca Falls - challenging hike but so worth it to swim in the pools at the base of the falls (you can also do a horseback riding tour to get there as well).

An unforgetably stunning tropical paradise

  • 5 of 5

I find it difficult to find words that will truly describe the incredible beauty and serenity of the Flying Monkey Villa in the middle of the jungle. It comes with a stunning vanishing edge pool and all the amenities and comforts of home complete with the plastic blender In the poolside bar. The house is beautifully appointed with everything you could possibly want.From the deck overlooking the jungle to the breathtaking ocean view, I saw monkeys and Tucans, lots of iguanas and a sloth. A quick walk to the beach provided the only exercise I was looking for. Although the horseback riding on the beach was a bonus and the amazing birdwatching kept me entertained while lounging by the pool. Groceries and other little necessities were easily accessible either in the local village, Domonicalito, or just down the road in Dominical. I found it really helpful to have had a four-wheel-drive for exploring the surrounding hills an incredible views, and for the ride up to the incredibly entertaining bar The Jolly Roger. I would recommend this to anybody looking to enjoy a tropical paradise in the middle of the jungle, with all the comforts of home. The Palapa off the kitchen, complete with a beautiful barbeque, provided incredible evening breezes and a perfect place for a breakfast with nature.My only regret is that my 10 days is over and I have to go back home. But I will return!! Mark my words. It's my delight to provide this recommendation whole heartedly and unreservedly. Thank you so much Ian and Phyllis for leaving such an amazingly clean, well appointed and welcoming home away from home. The quick 30 minute airplane to San Jose was really convenient! . Pura Vida all the way!!! Gracias y adios!

Unbelievable!!!

  • 5 of 5

As soon as you open the door to the Flying Monkey it takes your breath away! What a view! Everything you could ask for & more. You wake up every morning looking out onto the ocean & at night you have the waves lull you to sleep. Every evening we watched the red sun set while lounging in the infinity pool. And all the great little hideaways you can go to for a night of great food & entertainment. Having breakfast on the deck & watching the monkeys make their way through the trees or watch a toucan feed her young was awesome! It was a vacation to remember & hope to make it back again soon. Wonderful memories that will stay with us always.

Everything We Could have Imagined.....and MORE!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at the Flying Monkey was incredible. We were two couples traveling together and this villa has everything we could have wanted or needed. The concierge was so helpful setting up excursions and adventures. We enjoyed coming back to the villa at the end of the day to float in the vanishing edge pool while enjoying the incredible sunset.

We will definitely be back. Thanks for sharing your beautiful villa with us.
