Dominical, Costa Rica
Water Villa Dominical, Costa Rica 12 voyageurs5 chambres6 salles de bain (5 salle de bain attenante)Piscine The styles of two iconic destinations combine to create an unforgettable retreat at Water Villa. Set in the lush rainforest of Costa Rica’s Pacific coast with views of the rolling hills and sea, this luxury five-bedroom Dominical vacation rental invites you to experience the country’s famous “pura vida”—in a villa filled with traditional Balinese art and architecture. Bring up to ten family members or friends to this lush Central American locale, and let the property transport you even farther from your cares. The scene is set from the moment you enter the private walled compound of Water Villa and pass the traditional statues and koi ponds. Open-air lounging and dining pavilions surround sunny terraces and two infinity pools looking out to the ocean. Host a family gathering or intimate tropical wedding by setting the mood with the sound system and serving guests from the barbecue at the outdoor kitchenette, or take a moment to yourself and arrange a treatment on the massage table or a soak in the hot tub. Vaulted ceilings, ornately carved wooden trim and traditional Balinese masks and reliefs are a stunning backdrop to the villa’s open-plan living spaces. No detail is without ornament, from the door frames to the brackets holding up shelves. But the ample supply of wicker sofas and chairs means the spaces are inviting, too, with a large sitting area, dining area with room for eighteen, and even a breakfast bar in the fully equipped kitchen awaiting guests. There are four bedrooms in the main house at Water Villa and one in the separate Water Cottage; all have king beds and en-suite bathrooms, and the cottage bedroom has a sofa bed as well. The layout means that five couples can stay in equal comfort, or the cottage can be used as its own honeymoon-style retreat within the villa. Begin your holiday with a flight to Costa Rica’s Juan Santamaria International Airport, or to local Quepos Airport, just 18 miles from the villa. When you’re not spending the day by the pools, make the 3-minute drive to the nearest beach, Dominicalito, or the 3-mile drive to the beach town of Dominical. See the incredible coral reef at Marino Ballena National Park and the thundering waterfalls of Cataratas de Nauyaca, both 8 miles away, encounter local flora and fauna at Manuel Antonio National Park, 18 miles away, or find restaurants and nightlife in the town of Quepos, also 18 miles away.
