About this listing
Welcome to villa Bella Vista where the sky meets the ocean! Enjoy the view of the Pacific with its gorgeous sunset and our private virgin jungle with monkeys, variety of birds and other wildlife. It is an ideal spot for those who are looking for tranquil vacation in a beautiful nature setting. Our villa is a perfect place for the honeymoon or any other romantic vacation.
The villa is surrounded by 2 acres of gorgeous tropical garden. The 670 meter elevation assures warm days and comfortable nights without the need for air conditioning. We sleep with open windows and doors, inviting fresh mountain air to freely enter our rooms.The house has a large number of spacious social areas, both inside and outside, and allows privacy for people who require it. Exercise room with the fitness equipment is also available.
Unfortunately, house is not suitable for the children under the age of 10.
We have two friendly dogs and three cats living at the property. You are welcome to play with them (and if you don't - the villa is big enough and they won't bother you :)
To the West, the nearby coastal town of Dominical is a 20 minute drive down the mountain. It is a surfer's paradise with rustic charm, offering world-class surfing great for both advanced and beginner surfers alike, Spanish and yoga classes as well as shopping and restaurants. Up and down the coastline there are many other beautiful, secluded beaches.
And to the East, the regional capital of San Isidro Del General is a 20 minute drive further up the mountain, a major city with shopping, restaurants, medical/dental facilities, Spanish and Latin Dance schools with very affordable prices, and the largest farmers market in Costa Rica offering organic produce, fish, meat etc.
Nearby: less then 5 min by car there is a cute little restaurant with the fresh local food and friendly people. Beautiful waterfall is accessible by horseback riding – really fun day adventure. From Dominical you can go on rafting trips, kayak, boat and canopy tours and offshore fishing. Boat trip to Caño Island is wonderful if you like snorkeling or scuba diving.

About the Host, Natalya
We are Natalya and Victor. Two retired Canadians who built their dream home in Costa Rica. We have been living in Costa Rica for the past 7 years, loving and appreciating every day spent in this amazing place. It is a gorgeous country with friendly people, moderate climate and great opportunities for both relaxation and adventure. We have four grown children living in Canada, US and Argentina and we built a house where everyone can come together and enjoy themselves. When the kids are too busy to visit we are happy to share this beautiful place with you .
Here in Costa Rica we have 3 cats and 2 dogs. They live in the house but do not enter bedrooms. However, if you have a strong cat allergy this is something to consider.
Our dogs are very big but very friendly. They will bark and protect the house, but are not in any-way aggressive to our house-guests. They would like nothing more than another human friend to play with and to tag-along with on the jungle hike behind our villa.
