The house is located just 12 minute drive from the tranquil village of Playa Dominical, Once a small fishing village now a popular surf destination. Dominical is now home to a thriving and friendly community. The lush jungle plunges into the sea and the colors here are truly tropical. Nature preserves surround you and the wildlife here is abundant. With year-round consistent waves, Dominical is a must for surfers. And the area’s natural beauty, wealth of activities, kayaking, hiking, whitewater rafting and local amenities, make this a great destination. A visit to Playa Ventanas (Windows Beach) is a must! It get's it's name from the beautiful sea caves that line the north and south ends of the beach. The two caves on the northend extend from the beach out to the ocean, a distance of about 50 meters, and during certain tides create a sort of 'blowhole' effect. Pressure from each wave blows a large cloud of steam out onto the beach. The caves on the south end of the beach tunnel deeply into the rock, and inspire thoughts of hidden pirate treasure. Manual Antonio Park and beach is just 35 minutes away. We absolutely love everything about this special spot!!! No disappointments. Has awesome wifi. Has Sony TV in master bedroom that can be connected to your laptop/ipad to play movies. Make sure to bring connecting cables. Please send me a message anytime if you have a question or comment.

The SpaceVilla Mountain Serenity is a private villa in a secure, gated community near Dominical, Costa Rica. This three bedroom, two and a half bath home plus outdoor shower is perfectly situated within a tropical landscape, and offers a sweeping 180 degree mountain view, a serene valley view, and peaceful sunsets over the Pacific Ocean in the distance. Enjoy the tropical trees, plants and flowers and the toucans, parrots and butterflies that visit the grounds in the early morning and afternoons. The 900 ft elevation location provides a comfortable mountain breeze, even when it's steamy at the beach. The master bedroom and first floor guest room are air conditioned, but ceiling fans in every room allow a fresh breeze. The partially shaded terrace and cooking pergola offer the best of Costa Rican outdoor living. Patio sliders open directly from open plan kitchen/living room to the shaded veranda with outdoor granite table and seating for eight. Guests can relax between the pool and patio, or share a drink --or cooking advice-- at the BBQ island. Grill fresh catch of the day, outdoors, on the professional gas grill or make use of the fully-equipped indoor kitchen. Sleeping Accommodations The home sleeps six people comfortably. The upstairs master bedroom is equipped with a queen bed, and the next bedroom has two twin beds. The first floor guest room has a double futon bed, and its own private bathroom with shower. There is a sleeper sofa in the living room that can be configured as either a double bed, or two side-by-side twins. There is also a living room bench/sofa that could be used for extra single sleeper in a pinch. Well behaved children are always welcome, but house may be unsuitable for families with small toddlers or children who cannot swim, as pool in unfenced and only steps from your back door. VILLA MOUNTAIN SERENITY FAQs: Q. will I need a car? Yes, the home is in the gated community of Cascada Azul, situated approximately 3 miles (7km) from the beach --2.5 miles on a beautifully paved highway, and the last 1/2 mile on maintained gravel road into the coastal mountains. A car, preferably a 4WD, is recommended. There is a tiny convenience store or “soda,” as they are called in Costa Rica, in the hamlet of Baru, about a mile and a half away, but it would be a strenuous and long hike. For groceries, restaurants/bars, beaches, stores, etc. you would require transportation to the town of Dominical. Several taxi services are available. Q. is there someone in Costa Rica who can assist me while I am there? Yes, once you book the home, you will be put in touch with our local property managers, who can assist you with key handling, etc. Q. is there a beach nearby that will be easy to get to? The closest beach is Playa Dominical, approximately 3 miles away. This beach, however, has enormous waves (it is a world-class surfing destination) and also has a dangerous rip tide. Although the only beach in the area with life guards, I would not recommend it for casual swimming, especially for children. There are two other beaches we favor, down the coast near the next town of Uvita, Playas Ballena and Ventanas. Dominicalito, just adjacent Playa Dominical, is also generally calmer, but a bit rocky. Q. if we fly into the San Jose airport, how long is the drive to the house? About 3 to 3.5 hours, depending upon traffic and stops, via the new Caldera highway, or 4+ hours on the older Rt. 2 through San Isidro El General. You can also fly into Quepos via regional air, and it's a 30 minute drive down the coast. Q. would it be difficult to find?? We will provide clear directions, and the home is just off a major highway, and just a few kilometers off the Costañera Highway (34). Q. are there restaurants and shopping close by? Dominical is a rustic surfer town about 7km (3+ miles) away from the Cascada Azul community, and has a nice selection for casual dining. You can find Mexican, Thai, Italian, “Typical Costa Rican,” even a deli/bakery that serves awesome smoothies and great lunchtime sanwiches. Nearby hotels, such as Roca Verde and Rio Mar offer dining and bars. For shopping, you may wish to visit the bustling tourist town of Manuel Antonio (30 minutes drive north) which has souvenir, jewelry, and art/craft shops and many lively restaurants (I recommend a trip to Manuel Antonio, anyway, for the national park). Q. are there excursions and activities close by? Yes, yes, yes! Again, you can find many detailed on the house's web site, but there are spectacular waterfalls, including one right on the common property which is an adventure to hike to, the famous Nauyaca Falls only a few kilometers down the road, horseback tours, zip lining, and nature centers all within 10 miles. There are dozens of picturesque, quiet beaches all the way up and down the Southern Pacific coast near Dominical. You could easily go to a different one each day for more than a week! Q. What are 10 cool things to do in Dominical? This is a particularly great blog post of great things to do in the Dominical area: (URL HIDDEN) For surfers, Playa Dominical has a famous left and right beach surf break, and waves 95% of the year. The same conditions attractive for surfers, however, can make it treacherous for swimmers. Playa Dominical can have dangerous rip tides. There are lifeguards present, but for calmer waters, Playa Ballena, and Playa Ventanas are preferable. Playa Dominicalito, next to Dominical, is also known for less intense waves and currents, but is rockier. Q. is it in a quiet neighborhood? Yes, Villa Mountain Serenity is in a gated community with other homes, but it is on a very private plantel. It is the best of both worlds, because while there are people nearby, the property, pool, and home are quite private. Q. is there a grocery store close by? A small market in Dominical, about 3.5 miles away has almost everything you would need. For larger shopping, there is a bigger supermarket in Uvita, about 20 minutes down the coast, or there is a large MegaSuper in San Isidro El General, the largest nearby city about 35 minutes up into the Talamanca mountain range. Q. does the house have internet? Yes, the house is equipped with WiFi for internet connection. Q. what is the weather like? You can expect about 85+ degrees at the beach year round. The only difference in climate year round is that April/May-November is the "green," or rainy season, and December through March/April is the dry season. The temperature at the house is always a few degrees cooler because it is around 1000ft. elevation, and you get mountain breezes. Likewise, because of its proximity to the equator, the sunrise sunset are constant year-round at approximately 6am/6pm. Q. which rooms have air conditioning? There are two bedrooms with a/c: the master bedroom on the second floor, and the bedroom on the first floor with a double bed. There is not a/c throughout the rest of the home, but there are ceiling fans in each room and generally there is a mountain breeze. Q. will I need to bring anything with me? You need not bring any household items -- all bedding, tableware, towels, cookware etc., are all provided. Bring only your personal items, and a sense of adventure and/or relaxation! Q. what are the rental terms? The rates depend upon the season and are roughly as follows: Green Season May 01-Jun 30 and Aug 16-Nov 15: $900/week High Season Dec 01-Apr 30 and Jul 01-Aug 15: $1,095/week Peak Season Dec 20-Jan 10: $1,795/week PLEASE NOTE: A 10% rental tax will apply to all reservations. This will be the only extra cost at time of booking. Please note our cancellation policy prior to booking, and we also require a $300 security deposit, in case things are damaged or stolen. For people bringing pets, the security deposit may be greater, depending upon the circumstances. Other Things to NotePLEASE NOTE: A 10% rental tax will apply to all reservations. This will be added via a "Special Offer" after booking request is made.

The SpaceYellow bedroom with queen bed in House of Jupiter, a house up in the jungle covered mountains near Dominical. This room has a private half bath with patio doors that open to the pool and patio area. If you have more than 2 people, they can use the green bunkbed room that is next to this room and is in the photos. We never rent both rooms at the same time to different people. We also have a beautiful and private villa upstairs but we always avoid renting to seperate groups. We're located in the jungle covered mountains near Dominical with incredible views less people and lots of animals. Very secluded house but only a short drive to the beach. Guest AccessAccess to shared living room, full bath with incredible shower, full kitchen (dishes, coffee, fridge, stove, microwave, blender, toaster, etc etc), patio with dining table, swimming pool with incredible view, and a washer and dryer. Breakfast cereals are included but we can also cook you a typical costa rican breakfast. Interaction with GuestsBasically anything you need I am available to help you with. I can take you to waterfalls or give you directions. there are several beautiful well known waterfalls in the area but i also know of several that are still secret and private to the rest of the world. we can set up surf lessons or tours. Suggest best places to go. If you like, I can pick you up at the airport (4 passenger maximum in my 5 seater), and drive you around and be your tour guide. We can cook for you also if you desire. The NeighborhoodA private community up in the jungle covered mountains near Dominical with incredible mountain and ocean views. Just a short drive from 2 different beaches. One, a famous touristy surfing beach and the other a completely natural deserted beach where you can walk for miles sometimes and not see people. Our little piece of paradise is surrounded by national forest preserve so we are visited by many animals. You will feel like you are a million miles from the rest of the world but the beach town of Dominical and many activities are only a short 15 minute drive away. Getting AroundI am more that willing to meet our guest in Dominical and give them a ride (free of charge) to the house or if you're in a car you can follow me to the house. Also, I can pick you up at the airport and/or take you to the airport. Then you can rent a car just for the days you are in the area. Just ask me about it and we can agree on a price in advance. As with most places in Costa Rica that aren't on a paved highway, 4x4 is highly recommended, mostly for the ground clearance but it isn't absolutely necessary. It's possible in a front wheel drive car with good ground clearance but I would not recommend a rear wheel drive car because of the lack of traction on the hills. In the rainy season I only suggest 4x4's because rental companies use poor quality tires that are not all-terrain and that's when the roads are at their worst. The town of Dominical and the little pueblo of Baru at the entrance to our community has bus stops and a regular and dependable bus system that can take you all over costa rica for a couple dollars. Taxis are also availabe to and from the house.

If you travel light and have limited time, this might be the way to go. Check out TACA or Nature Air for more information.

More information is available at the house. Some things to expect : You are in the Rain forest / jungle, so expect to see insects and some animals in and around the area, and to get rain daily for 15-20 minutes. The rain is usually very short lived and is welcomed to cool things off, and keep everything lush and beautiful.

      The SpacePerfectly located up in the jungle covered mountains above the layed back surf town of Dominical. 5 miles (8 km) from Dominical beach which has good surfing all year round and every kind of tour you can imagine. Whale watching, horseback riding to waterfalls, ziplining, whitewater rafting, kayaking, etc etc. 17 miles (27 km) from Marino Ballena national park, "the whale's tail beach", which is a great place for free snorkeling or you can pay for whale and dolphin watching tours. 34 miles (54 km) from world famous Manuel Antonio national park which is packed full of multiple species of monkeys and sloths and home to one of Costa Rica's top 5 beaches. 33 miles (53 km) from Chirripó national park which encompasses 125,000 acres and home to the tallest mountains in Central America including the 12530 feet tall Cerro Chirripó. Our property borders the biological corridor Paso de la Danta so we're regularly visited by lots of wildlife, including monkeys, sloths, toucans, aracaris, anteaters, coatis, hummingbirds, iguanas, etc etc. Nevermind the fact that we have 4 reviews for the entire house because its a new listing, the private villa which is the upper half of the house has 40 different 5 star reviews on airb&b. House of Jupiter is a beautiful spacious home in the jungle covered mountains above Dominical. We pride ourselves on being eco friendly and carbon neutral. We are solar powered, very energy efficient, receive our water from a nearby spring and the majority of the furniture was made from locally and sustainably havested bamboo. The house has a very fresh and open feel with 14 foot cathedral ceilings covered in bamboo and large windows everywhere with lots of new screens to keep the bugs out and let in the breeze off of the pacific ocean. We're located at a perfect 1000 feet elevation and in pure jungle so the temperatures are much cooler (in the shade) than if at sea level so there is no need for airconditioning, although we do have airconditioning in the downstairs. For those warmer days there are many cieling fans and pedestal fans. 6 bedrooms with a total of 8 beds, all have memory foam. The main bathroom has a giant concrete bathtub and shower that has a jungle view and sometimes you can see toucans, a sloth, or monkeys while bathing. Fully furnished kitchen and dining area. Giant terrace/balcony that is a great place to relax or do yoga (3 yoga matts included) with lots of seating and 2 oversized hammocks. A sitting area. Living room with 50" tv, satellite tv, blueray player and the ever important WIFI. The house sits on 6 acres which is a combination of jungle, bananas and fruit trees. The closest neighbor is seperated by several acres of jungle and you cannot see them or hear them. We will not rent to 2 different groups at the same time. Guest AccessFully furnished kitchens (dishes, coffee, fridge, stove, pans, cooking oil and spices, microwave, blender, toaster, etc etc) giant terrace, infared barbecue grill, pool and patio, many types of fruit grown on the property. Interaction with GuestsI can arrange a private shuttle from the airport to the house, rental cars delivered to the house or at the airport, tours/activities, surf lessons, etc etc and I do not need a credit card to do so. I, the homeowner and host, stay nearby and will come by in the mornings to keep up with the high amount of maintenance of the pool and property. I always respect the guest's privacy and usually do not see them again after check-in. But if you need anything, I am a quick phone call or message away and I am more than happy to help with anything you need. The NeighborhoodA private community in the jungle covered mountains near Dominical with incredible mountain and ocean views. At over 1000 ft elevation so the temperatures are more comfortable and fresh feeling. Our little piece of paradise is surrounded by national forest preserve so we are visited by all kinds of furry critters. You will feel like you are a million miles from the rest of the world while at the house but the beach town of Dominical and many activities are only a short drive away. Getting AroundAs with most places in Costa Rica that aren't on a paved highway, 4x4 is highly recommended. It's possible in a front wheel drive car with good tires and with good ground clearance during the dry season or when the road is in good condition. But really, I only suggest 4x4's because rental companies use poor quality tires that are not all-terrain. The town of Dominical and the little pueblo of Baru at the entrance to our community has bus stops and a regular and dependable bus system that can take you all over costa rica for a couple dollars. Taxis are also availabe to and from the house.

The lush jungle plunges into the sea and the colors here are truly tropical. Nature preserves surround you and the wildlife here is abundant. With year-round consistent waves, Dominical is a must for surfers. And the area's natural beauty, wealth of activities, kyaking, hiking, whitewater rafting and local amenities, make this a great destination. A visit to Playa Ventanas (Windows Beach)is a must! It get's it's name from the beautiful sea caves that line the north and south ends of the beach. The two caves on the northend extend from the beach out to the ocean, a distance of about 50 meters, and during certain tides create a sort of "blowhole" effect. Pressure from each wave blows a large cloud of steam out onto the beach. The caves on the south end of the beach tunnel deeply into the rock, and inspire thoughts of hidden pirate treasure. Horses can be delivered to the house with a guide to take you on a trip to the nearby waterfall.
