About the property

- Minimum Stay3 nights
Secluded balinese style, tropical retreat on a private hilltop only minutes from Punta Dominical. Bordering a nature reserve the property is filled with a variety of Costa Rican wildlife, ranging from monkeys and toucans to wild piglets and armadillos.
This stunning ocean-view property includes 5 acres of manicured gardens and 11 acres of jungle, accessible by an extensive series of private hiking paths. The custom-designed balinese-style villas blend into the surrounding landscape beautifully and take full advantage of the cooling breeze from the ocean below.
A plunge pool with waterfall is built into the living space outside the kitchen and sitting room. A rancho at the top of the hill is perfect for morning yoga or sunset happy hour, whichever suits the mood.
Private meals, massages, and private yoga sessions all on the property can be arranged.
Refugio de La Reserva is perfect for those wanting the luxury of a hotel, but the privacy and seclusion of your own home within walking distance of the beach.

Gorgeous property! We saw more wildlife at Casa Reserva than anywhere. Two sloths, tons of different kinds of monkeys and lots of other wildlife. The bungalows were perfect for two couples that want privacy. Pool was very refreshing after a hot day in the sun. Recommend this amazing get away! The drive is very rough so will be 4 x 4 but it’s a fun adventure. Home is about 10 min from town.
Immaculate grounds with a beautiful view!
Wow!! What a special place! Perfect for 2 couples. Clean and modern rooms with a refreshing pool. Windows everywhere to view the rainforest and pristine landscaping. Loved having morning coffee and afternoon cocktails on the terrace overlooking the ocean. This is the spot we saw most of the wildlife during our entire stay. We saw huge electric blue butterflies, toucans, huge lizards, monkeys, various birds, etc from the terrace. The private trials were amazing and well kept and we managed to see a sloth sleeping in a tree during one of our many trail walks. We can't wait for our next trip to Costa Rica and plan on staying here again!! No need for an alarm clock as the Howler monkeys will wake you ;) Evelyn (the home caretaker) and Fernando (the groundskeeper) were two of the most wonderful people we have ever met. Evelyn made us a phenomenal Costa Rican dinner one night at the house that we will remember always. If you want a truly remarkable vacation, I would highly recommend staying here! It was perfect!
We had a fantastic week! The house and the views were AMAZING. The property mangers were super helpful and very kind! We can't wait to go back!
Photos Don't do this place justice!!
I cannot explain how beautiful this place is, you just have to see it for yourself. We travel in a group of 4, two couples and it was the perfect location for a a group of couples to travel together since the bedrooms are separated into two different houses (so to speak).
The house(s) are very well maintained and the landscaping is STUNNING! Laurie who greeted us was incredibly accommodating of our schedule and so helpful while we were there. We had absolutely no issues or complaints, nothing but positive feedback :)
If you are travelling to Dominical, this is THE PLACE to stay!
Thanks for everything!
A Piece of Paradise
My wife and I stayed 7 days there and it was fabulous. Every day was a new day with the wild life from the Capuchin monkeys every morning to the non stop sighting of Toucans. The home was simply beautiful. And loved having to forge a small stream to reach the home site. Also cannot forget Fernando and Evelyn who were always there if we needed something, two very nice people. Thanks again Zoe for sharing you beautiful home as it was one of our most memorable vacations.
Breathtaking and picture perfect!
This property couldn't have looked any more perfect and everyone was friendly we delt with.
The things I would say we're a little challenge was the drive to the property. It's all off road and can be steep so a larger suv would be recommended especially when it rains (every day). Also no land line so no way to keep in contact with property manager if your cell doesn't work. Otheir than that it was amazing and you couldn't have had better views!
