Location: Escaleras, Dominical, Costa Rica
Upon entering the 5-bedroom, 4.5 bathroom tropical home, the first thing you’ll notice is the exquisite 180-degree ocean views stretching out over Dominicalito. Gaze out at the coastline while watching the white water break on the beach below, or sit back and soak in the spectacular valley and mountain views while hawks and oropendolas soar gently overhead.
Come twilight, gather your friends and family for a show-stopping sunset as a kaleidoscope of colors explodes across the sky. Watch the changing light dancing across the valley and ocean, and you’ll quickly understand why this property boasts one of the best sunsets in all of Costa Rica.
Head to the expansive patio and pool to discover all the trappings of a first-rate Costa Rica vacation home. Take note of the impressive floor consisting of hand-cut stone, each piece carefully crafted to fit together. Dive into the refreshing, 12-foot deep pool, or head straight to the wet bar; it strategically opens directly to the pool and is perfect for lively happy hours on days filled with endless sunshine.
Continuing through the home, you’ll find a state-of-the-art kitchen with luxury appliances and a sweeping island, a dream for entertaining large groups with ease. The open-concept design flows into the living room, where a striking waterfall mural is impossible to miss. Take note—this incredible image was painted by a local artist and is a replica of the private waterfall on the property.
Teak floors and naturally harvested exotic woods from fallen trees decorate the home, creating a calming ambiance that feels at one with your natural surroundings. Additional amenities include a large screen TV, spacious seating area, and oversized ceiling fan—the foolproof conditions for relaxing in comfort from your tropical home.
The elegant master bedroom is located on the ground floor for ease and accessibility. The spacious room opens up to the pool and never-ending ocean and valley views. Start the day from the privacy of the master bedroom with fresh local coffee as the sun rises and the sounds of nature echo throughout the rainforest—the sparkling azure water is visible without even lifting your head from your pillow. Upstairs you’ll find the additional bedrooms, each unique in design, with ample space for guests or family members to find quiet moments to relax and rejuvenate. A detached one-bedroom, one-bathroom guest suite provides added privacy and convenience for those guests who prefer more solitude and space.
The home is also equipped with a yoga deck and outdoor gym area (complete with monkey bars!)
Exit the house to explore the rest of the property. A path will take you down to the fully-functioning tilapia farm and greenhouse, where there is an abundance of fruit trees and additional space for farming. Before long, you’ll arrive at the pièce de résistance: a cascading waterfall that plummets into a refreshing pool, excellent for cooling off on a sun-dappled day—or perhaps merely whiling away a secluded afternoon in this picture-perfect oasis.
As you venture through the property, you’ll notice numerous large, flat plots that would be fantastic for building guest casitas.
Not only does this expansive property promise future privacy and seclusion, but it also offers countless opportunities for future development—should you so desire.
Back at this amazing property, it’s now time to head across the iconic hanging bridge and over a trickling creek to the 7-bedroom, 5-bathroom Inn. This charming, fully-equipped Inn boasts a proven track record of rental success. The Inn could easily be converted into a guest house for larger family gatherings, used as accommodation for a retreat center, or continue operating as a quaint Inn or Bed and Breakfast. While it is within easy access of the main home, the Inn’s strategic location across the creek ensures privacy both for the main house and guests.
All of the bedrooms include ample closet space and have access to the covered balconies.
The property also includes a two-bedroom guest house that is currently being used to house the caretaker. There are flowering and fruiting trees throughout the compound, that keep the main home from being visible from the road and neighbors.
Between its marvelous ocean and valley views, expansive acreage for future development, the gorgeous main home, the charming Inn, massive private waterfall and additional build sites—this is genuinely a Costa Rica investment opportunity unlike any other.
