About this listing
Looking for the finer things? Can Shekinah holds wonderment from every corner of the world.
From the moment the guard swings the gates open to your private driveway, you know you have been set upon the lap of luxury. Manicured lawns trimmed in lush jungle lead the way to this stately haven. The rich, warm colors of Can Shekinah perfectly contrast the greens of tropical palms that shade the entry way. As you enter, take a moment to appreciate the details…. Windows perfectly trimmed, carved columns and massive front door. Old world charm greets you as walk through the door to find the fountain trickling a song that revives the body, mind and spirit. The sweeping staircase is adorned in forged iron that twists delicately into an ascending vine, bejeweled with stained glass windows and a glistening antique chandelier. Breeze passed the stairs to find a finely appointed chef's kitchen - laden with a stone facade and beamed ceilings - custom cabinetry and fine wood counters, and professional grade appliances. Steps away the formal dining room awaits, reminiscent of a European Manor. Large folding glass doors invite the sites and sound of the ocean and jungle to serenade your evening meal. If you prefer, dine “al fresco” in the more casual our door living space, still equally appointed in fineness. Sit at the centuries old wagon wheel table or under the thatched palapa supported by twisting columns that encircle a sacred space – tailor made for finding tranquility. Return indoors to find the living area with a copper hearth at its center trimmed in Thai and Indian accents. Entertainment center is easily tucked away, allowing conversation to prevail.

The only thing better than a great night’s sleep is welcoming the morning with a cup of Costa Rica’s fine coffee, provided for you in your welcome basket. Enjoy this with local, fresh, organic fruits (also part of your welcoming gift.) If you please, we can arrange breakfast to be prepared so that your morning is effortless. Sneak back upstairs to familiarize yourself again with the backs of your eyelids or curl up with your loved one. If morning is “your” time, find your spot next to the infinity pool as it spills over the meticulously landscaped grounds. Combine breath and movement on the yoga platform feet from the big blue pacific. Balinese furniture is perfectly placed whether it is sun or shade you desire. Meander the grounds and marvel the natural and man-made splendor that Can Shekinah offers.
Once you ready, the area is surrounded by as much or as little adventure as you desire. From bird-watching at the area wildlife refuge, to surf lessons at the local beach break, a relaxing massage on the pool deck or repelling down a spectacular waterfall, it´s all here in the Dominical area. You name it: horseback to the waterfalls or on the beach at sunset; boat tour to the mangroves, to Caño Island for snorkel or SCUBA, and fishing; canopy zip-lines and nature hikes; photographic safari; Yoga, Pilate's or Martial Arts; aerial, ATV or kayaking tours. Steps away, fine dining, full service spa, cosmetic medical and dental, and sport fishing.
