About the property

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.

Beautiful home in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Costa Amor delivers on all levels. The views are amazing, you can walk the property and see mountains and valleys all around you. There are fruit trees all over the property, we had plantains, star fruits, oranges and pineapples to eat that we could pick ourselves and tasted wonderful. The pools are bigger than I expected and are a refreshing start and finish to each day. Our 3 children were constantly in them. The privacy of the lower floor was perfect for my husband and I to retreat to at the end of the day.

The caretaker has a sweet small dog, Luna, that my kids loved to play with. Kathy, the owner, was really good at answering our questions and making recommendations.

We loved the place, one of our best vacations ever.

Bird lovers Paradise!

  • 4 of 5

This house is located 20 minutes up a winding road from Dominical in the hills. The house is just beautiful and The Caretaker Whrner is wonderful! He was such a big help and of course we fell in love with his dogs, Luna and Marshmella both were very sweet and we loved having them around the house. The pools were great fun we had a blast on the slide. The property has lots of pineapples, limes, papaya, and fresh herbs. Just ask Whrner and he will show you the grounds.

We rented a car in San Jose and drove to Dominical. Next time I would take a shuttle then rent a car locally. The roads can be very hard to navigate without local knowledge in San Jose. There are a number of good restaurants close to the house but you will need a car. 4 wheel drive will be a big help in this area. But not necessary.

We were a group of 6 older, young at heart people who had a blast! We didn't want to leave this beautiful place.

The 4 star rating is for the lack of air conditioning. We were there in summer (February)

and it was super hot to sleep in. It was fine during the day. Just wish we had a/c in the bedrooms. It did cool down in the middle of the night so it was cool when we woke at 5am to watch the toucans flying around the yard and all the other beautiful birds. I would go back in a minute even without air conditioning.

Awesome!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was fantastic for my retreat group.. Any need that came up was addressed promptly by Lisa or by Warner on site (who went above and beyond), who also gave us a tour of all the fruits and herbs growing on the extensive grounds. The view was spectacular and the sound system and Incredible bi-level pool with slide turned all the adventurous adults into teenagers again...

The rooms were nicely appointed too. Thanks Lisa and Warner!!!

REALLY GREAT PLACE

  • 5 of 5

There were 5 adults on our stay, and it was a great place that everyone had their own space and bathrooms. Like everyone else it was hard to get us out of the pool. Lights in pool so we even swam at night! Everyone we came across was very friendly. Beaches are amazing! The caretaker took care of what ever needs we had. Would definitely go back.

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.
