Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Dominical - Costa Amor Villas

Luxury Private Mountain Top Villa With 2 Pools & Stunning 360 Degree Views!

Immersed in stunning nature with sweeping views of the hills surrounding Dominical, Costa Amor is a tropical oasis for those seeking an unforgettable vacation. With numerous outdoor attractions and the laid-back surf town Dominical just minutes away, you can find quiet and seclusion as easily as excitement and adventure. Couples seeking a getaway, families in search of relaxation and fun, and friends throwing festive gatherings or retreats will all feel at home in Costa Amor.

Wake up to see the sunrise over the mountains from your bedroom as tucans and scarlet macaws fly by. Spend the day exploring one of the nearby national parks, snorkeling live coral reef, surfing world-class breaks, swimming in crystal pools beneath gushing waterfalls, or simply relaxing in Costa Amor’s pools and raging down the waterslide. Nearby Dominical has a variety of world class local and international restaurants or you can prepare a feast in the fully equipped gourmet kitchen and dine on the wrap around deck with gorgeous sunset views.

The Beautiful Property and Luxurious House

This 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom fully furnished luxury home sits on five acres of gorgeous Costa Rican hillside with cool, refreshing air and plenty of trails to explore. The property attracts incredible birds and wildlife thanks to the abundance of fruit trees, tropical plants, and flowers. From the garden you can see the stunning Diamante Waterfall, one of the tallest waterfalls in Costa Rica.

The main level of the home has cathedral ceilings and an open, spacious layout with large windows throughout. Thanks to the higher altitude temperatures are always comfortable and moderate and the ceiling fans in every room keep the air even cooler. A large deck wraps around the west side of the home overlooking the jungle canopy. Beside the deck is a large, shallow pool with a swim up bar and stools for sitting on, with a waterslide that plunges down into the deep pool below.

Cooks will adore the enormous, fully equipped kitchen with a social breakfast bar beside the open dining room. The cozy living room has plenty of seating and an entertainment center with a 60” flat screen television, DVD player, large selection of DVDs, and a top of the line sound system.

On the east side of the house is a large master bedroom with a king size bed and bathroom with full size shower and an entrance leading out to the pool. On the west side is a double bedroom overlooking both the jungle and the pool, with two twin beds and plenty of dresser drawers, perfect for kids or friends.

The downstairs feels like its own apartment with a large, fully equipped kitchen, living area, two bathrooms, and a bedroom that opens out to the lower pool.

The Nearby Attractions and Activities

Costa Amor lies within minutes of numerous natural attractions and plenty of fun, cultural activities. Nauyaca Falls is considered the most beautiful waterfall in Costa Rica ,the trailhead is just across the street! We can arrange all sorts of tours including ziplining in the jungle canopy, horseback riding, surf lessons, and Boat Tours.

Dominical

The laid back surf town of Dominical has a beautiful, long jungle backed beach, world famous surf breaks, and town treasures like artisanal shops, a yoga studio, and restaurants serving anything from organic salads to Italian pastries to fresh sushi rolls. Surf shops offer board rentals and lessons, and nearby Dominicalito is a great place for those looking to learn. In Dominical you can stock up on groceries, use the ATM, and listen to some live music while enjoying a cold beer from a beach bar.

Nauyaca and Diamante Waterfalls

Just beyond the property is the road that leads to the stunning Nauyaca Falls. A short hike or a guided horseback ride leads to the two falls, with a crystal clear pool surrounded by rocks for swimming and sunbathing. The famous Diamante Falls, with a series of seven falls accessed through a steep hike through the jungle-covered mountains, is a twenty-minute drive away. The falls can be explored through a guided tour booked through us or entirely on your own.

National Parks

Two of the most famous national parks in Costa Rica for spotting animals are less than an hour from the property, including the Manuel Antonio National Park known for its gorgeous beaches and large quantities of white face monkeys and the Marino Ballena National Park in Uvita.

At the right time of year you can see whales and dolphins migrating across the Pacific ocean from the beaches that front the Marino Ballena National Park. During low tide a large sandbar emerges that stretches for miles out into the ocean in the shape of a whale’s tail. Behind the national park in Uvita lies the Uvita waterfall, which makes for another great day trip in nature.

The most famous, albeit challenging, place to hike in all of Costa Rica, Mount Chirripo, is less than an hour’s drive from the house where you can see both the Atlantic and Pacific from the summit.

Farmer’s Markets and Groceries

The valleys surrounding Costa Amor are home to small farming communities growing organic tropical fruit and all sorts of vegetables. Just a few minutes from Costa Amor are two fruit stands selling mangos, avocados, fresh young coconuts, and other basics and further up the road are two small grocery stores. Every Tuesday the nearby community of Tinamastes has a wonderful organic Farmer’s Market with homemade baked goods, healthy superfoods, nuts, spices, fruit, fresh greens, local farm eggs, homemade cheese, and handmade arts and crafts. Wednesday through Saturday San Isidro, a small city twenty minutes away, has a huge fruit and vegetable market with a selection of organic stalls selling bulk nuts, dried fruit, organic raw treats, coconut oil, and more. In San Isidro there are several supermarkets and shops for pretty much anything you might need.

Wonderfully appointed luxury villa

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 1 adult and 2 kids and stayed at Costa Amor for 10 days. Just an absolutely beautiful place, well appointed and super comfortable. Lisa and Warner made us feel very welcome. The added bonus of Luna, the house dog, was great and my kids really bonded with her!

To sit out on the balcony with a coffee in the morning, watch the toucans fly from one tree to another, hear the birds and insects all going about their day and be surrounded by gorgeous flowers and plants...well....pure heaven!

The only problem was the house, pool and gardens were TOO nice - it was a wrench to drag the kids (and me!) away to go explore the beauty of Costa Rica!! Glad we stayed 10 days as it gave us time to do both. If you want to relax and also do some hiking and exploring, this is the place to be.

Amazing vibrant property!

  • 5 of 5

The property was a little hard to find, and a little further up the mountain than we expected, but once we arrived it blew out expectations away. The entire property was full of color with vibrant flowers all around and the landscaping was immaculate. The views of the surrounding mountains were amazing and you literally felt like you were at the top of the world.

Inside the house was very clean and the entertainment center in the living room was a bonus, but rarely used since right out of the back patio was like looking at a postcard all day 360 degrees. I will say there were a lot more bugs and insects being further out in the country but it wasn't bad, some of which were like the size of my hand...scared the wife a bit lol!

Last but not least, the pool! We have a 5 year old daughter who loved the pool and would not get out! She still can't stop talking about it even after we got back from our vacation. At night, the pool lights up with multi color led lights which was a pretty cool sight to look at. The gazebo and outdoor bar made it fun to hang out drink and swim all at the same time. Overall, this house exceeded our expectations and would definitely recommend this house to others.

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for five nights and actually booked an extra night while there since we loved it so much. It's a perfect set up for a family, two families, a couple or a group. The house was completely stocked with essentials with even a mini-fridge in the bbq area (they do charge of course) but that was nice for when we checked in and just wanted a good cold drink! Kaitlyn is the point of contact for the home and is a wealth of knowledge for the area. She's like your personal concierge and is very pleasant.

I highly recommend the home.

Costa Amor to the rescue!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been living in Costa Rica for almost two years and my family was coming to visit. Months ago, I had made reservations at a house on the Caribbean coast. My dismay at having to cancel those plans due to landslides and floods, was tempered greatly by finding Costa Amor. Lisa was so accommodating of our last minute needs and the house turned out to be perfect. With seven adults and one twelve year old, it was the perfect mix of sophisticated and fun. The pools and rancho were wonderful and there was plenty of good gathering space for playing cards and generally hanging out. My oldest nephew in studying ornithology at university and this was the perfect setting for excellent bird watching. Toucans, parrots, aracaris, hummingbirds, hawks, puff birds... and on and on... right off the patio. I also highly recommend a hike or horseback ride to Nauyaca Falls as it is only about 15 kilometers from the house. All in all, I highly recommend Costa Amor and am deeply grateful that they were able to help us with our last minute needs. Thank you so much Lisa, Kaitlyn and Warner!

Great Property and Pools!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Costa Amor. The pools, slide, and swim up bar are amazing. The layout is great for two or more families. Jungle feel, but close to it all. Would definitely recommend this place and hope to return in the near future.
