About This Listing
This is a private house that is great for large groups. A five minute drive from the beach and the town of Dominical. It has two kitchens, four bedrooms, plenty of indoor/outdoor spaces, and a nice swimming pool.
Well off the beaten path, our home offers a private and intimate experience connecting you with the wonders of the rainforest. Perched in the foothills, and backed by a mountain range, the home overlooks the canopy of our private wildlife reserve project and beyond to the ocean. The home's focus is open air living and features outdoor dining and living areas, as well as an outdoor, screened in bedroom - a favorite of many guests. With three other bedrooms and two full baths, the home sleeps seven in beds, with spare mattresses available for additional guests as needed. The pool, which adjoins the master bedroom patio, has a walkway cantilevered over the rainforest.
A true nature lover's paradise, the Rainforest Preserve Lodge and the surrounding Preserve offer many ways to enjoy a wide variety of wildlife. You will hear toucans crooning to each other and can watch coatimundis and monkeys playing in the trees, without leaving your breakfast perch on the balcony. You never know what you'll see next!
Our land is in the midst of the "Path of the Tapir" biological corridor, and we are developing a system of trails through the Preserve to enhance the opportunities to view wildlife and witness the exceptional natural beauty of the property. A morning walk with our caretaker (and nature guide extraordinaire!) to Hummingbird Falls or into the mountains is always a magical learning experience.
Our sunset platform, which overlooks 40 miles of coastline, is a great place to enjoy a picnic supper at sunset and look for whales below. The seven or eight beaches within a half-hour up and down the coast each offer a different ocean experience. Swimming, surfing, snorkeling, kayaking to sea caves, boating, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, rappelling down waterfalls or just relaxing are all available close by. Whatever level of adventure you enjoy is waiting for you.
So come and relax in the pool and watch the rainforest unfold around you, or explore the many areas of Rainforest Preserve, Dominical.
Above all, feel welcome!
I went with my family and spent 4 nights in the house, we had a great time really enjoy our vacations here. The only problem you might find is that you truly need a 4 wheel drive car to get into the house, the road is crazy uphill, but once you get into the house and see all the nature and the view nothing else matters.
Love the place and beaches, 100% recommended, and definitely will try to go back.
We could not have asked for a better vacation spot. The house is in the middle of a rainforest reserve. We were taken back by how beautiful it was. This is a hidden gem. We are so grateful to have stayed here. Dalip could not been a more gracious host. My grandparents loved watching the monkeys and tucans in the mornings. We never wanted to leave the pool that overlooks an incredible view of the forest. This house is great for everyone. There is hiking, the beach not far by with great surfing, and hours of pure relaxation. I highly recommend staying here!

About the Host, Satbir
Born in the Boston area, I grew up in northern India where I attended boarding school. I love to travel and shoot film. Most of my friends are from all over the world- Air bnb seemed like a good fit for me to continue to meet world travelers. I hope we can connect along the way.
