Private, wild, tropical, steep, open ocean views.
Quarter mile downhill to the beach bar/restaurant, and 1 kilometer to downtown Dominical.
What you get is literally a treehouse (pictured) that is light on amenities.
Pacific oceanfront treehouse/cabin suitable for adventure campers. 2.4 acres of private elevated front row oceanfront rainforest above a top 10 surfing beach. Secured entrance to acreage, covered fantastic wildlife viewing balcony, secure luggage storage, campers kitchen (hot plate and minifridge).
The neighborhood entrance is on the Pacific Coast Highway directly across the street from the Roca Verde Restaurant/Hotel/Bar which is 1 km South of Dominical town center. The lot is a steep quarter mile climb up to the left about 300 feet to the gated lot entrance. I recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle for the short climb.
The caretaker Julio only speaks Spanish. He is extremely helpful and can provide a ride to town, deliver fresh seafood, or run errands.
Please understand, this rental is best suited for guests who can live out of a backpack, like sleeping in hammocks (balcony is covered), are OK with open air showers. There are 2 folding futon/sleepers available.
If you are bringing high heels, blow dryers, or crispy clothes, I can recommend wonderful places nearby. In the treehouse, you really live amongst the monkeys and other jungle creatures while taking in the most incredible ocean view over a top ten surfing beach.
There are construction projects in progress nearby. As a result, my place is not suitable for young children who need to be kept from balconies without railings.
Owner will not be there. Caretaker speaks Spanish (Julio) and can be there for problems / questions. My place is best suited for travelers who enjoy roughing it a little, comfortable traveling overseas, and are self-reliant. If so, you get incredible privacy with the most amazing views in a truly tropical location.
From the treehouse the entrance gate is not easily visible, as a result, I recommend keeping the wrought iron gate to the property closed, even when you are in.
From the Pacific Coast Highway, the short climb to the lot is steep. I recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle. Yes, you can walk it, but it is a workout, especially with gear.
Interaction with Guests
I am available by text from the States, and Julio by phone (in Spanish, local).
Other listings claim to be real close - I know them personally and many are not. The provided map is deceiving.
My neighborhood is literally 1 kilometer south of downtown Dominical, and a quarter mile climb up from there. That means the view is beyond compare and it is conveniently close with a 4 wheel drive. The neighborhood consists of much nicer homes that rent out for high dollar. Please respect other owners/guests.
A 4 wheel drive is necessary for independent travel - without it, about half the country back roads are off limits. From Dominical, there are regular buses (schedules change and more keep getting added) to all major destinations.
No open fires please.
Only take from the garden fruit you will eat and leave the rest for the animals. They will do the same.
No immaturity or loud music please.
I love this place, please treat it like your own.
