This award-winning showcase property was prominently featured in "Conde Naste Johansens", "Estilos and Casas" (Central America's leading luxury home / architecture magazine) and "Passport Magazine". It was one of the first homes built inside of the ultra-exclusive Las Olas community of Dominical, Costa Rica. The estate features a premier location that is second to none – an unobstructed front-row location with a jaw-dropping whitewater ocean view that stretches for 30 miles, from Dominical Point at the picturesque Dominicalito Bay, all the way to Manuel Antonio National Park. Being this close to the ocean with the necessary elevation to create these awe-inspiring views, is truly a privilege. With fully titled property, this is a rock solid investment in a rising market that you can hold for as long as you want.
Visiting all of the main attractions in the area (shopping, dining, fishing, surfing, horseback riding, waterfall tours, etc.) is a walk in the park. Even though the property has quick and easy access, it is still far enough removed to enjoy complete relaxation and privacy when you are home. Directly from the property, you can take leisurely strolls through rainforest hiking trails that lead down to pristine tropical beaches. On your way, it is common to see colorful toucans, playful monkeys, sleepy sloths and scrappy scarlet macaws. Paradise found! This unique combination of elements is a prime factor as to why every vacation rental located inside of the upscale Las Olas community is booked solid – all at top dollar.
This 9,500 sq. ft. Spanish Colonial-inspired villa took 4 years to complete. A massive amount of concrete, stone and exotic hardwoods were utilized in the construction from top to bottom. The construction is so solid, and the walls are so thick, that wireless internet signals cannot penetrate throughout the house. This issue was addressed with a series of repeaters so high-speed WiFi is accessible from anywhere on the property. As you take a tour of the home, you will notice luxurious finishes everywhere: from mosaic tile artwork, gorgeous hardwood doors / ceilings / cabinetry, intricate ironwork, glass tile in the pool, granite & marble counters, carved fountains by skilled artisans, custom furnishings, locally commissioned paintings and much more.
The entrance of the home features an open courtyard that provides direct access to four climate-controlled guest suites with private bathrooms. All four suites are nicely separated to offer a sense of privacy for each of your guests. The two bedrooms on the southern wing have their own private garden verandas with an ocean view. A curved stairwell on the western side of the courtyard will take you upstairs to the private master suite. It is almost 2,000 sq. ft. and occupies the entire second floor. Here you will find an incredible wrap around balcony with comfortable sun lounges and a stone jacuzzi where you can soak in the unforgettable ocean view. The master bath includes a dual vanity, a giant stone shower, a large walk-in closet, and a lockdown storage room for your most precious valuables. This estate also features a separate butler's quarters located off of the gated entrance to the property.
If you love to entertain, this home is the crème de la crème! Highlights include a 1,000 bottle wine cellar, a 12 person movie theater with a surround sound system incorporated into the seats and walls, a gourmet kitchen with top of the line appliances, a spacious dining area that connects to the family room, a huge covered veranda with outdoor dining space, an impressive outdoor grill, an infinity edge pool with built in chaise lounges, a swim up bar, a poolside bathroom with outdoor rinsing shower and beautifully landscaped garden areas – all surrounded by lush rainforest topped off with that world class ocean view. Gourmet dinner parties here during sunset are unforgettable – that is unless your guests don't overindulge in the ample fruits available in the wine cellar!
This amazing home currently functions as a prime luxury vacation rental that has an impeccable 5-star reputation. Staff and services include a live-in housekeeper, a full-time gourmet chef, concierge service and a 24/7 management company to attend to all of your guests' needs. They can arrange local tours and "in-house" spa treatments that include relaxing poolside massages, facials, pedicures, manicures, and private yoga instruction.
Depending on the season, rental rates range from $7,000 to $14,000 per week. If you are looking to stay at this exclusive property, at the time of this writing there is only a brief window of opportunity during a few weeks in the "low season" from August & September 2015. All subsequent weeks are completely booked solid (at the highest rates) from October through the end of next Spring 2016. Demand is high from repeat customers and those "in the know" who expect only the "best of the best" for their friends and family during their next Costa Rican adventure.
This was our sixth trip to CR and have rented many exclusive homes. This one was EPIC. The pool and the private home theater was totally over the top.
Having grown up in Bermuda I have seen paradise first hand. I found paradise again during my visit. The villa is nothing short of spectacular.
We have been several times now and it only gets better. We recently had friends join us for my husband's 50th birthday. There was nowhere else he'd rather be.
I can honestly say that I cannot imagine a more beautiful place on earth. I didn't think any place could take away all of the stress of the world, but I can honestly say that all of my worries and cares melted away in this paradise!
This is one of the most amazing homes I have ever stayed in. The views were magnificent and the indoor-outdoor living allowed us to take in the true beauty of Costa Rica from every room in the house.
This house was the most amazing house I've ever stayed in!! Everything you would ever need is right there! I have traveled to many places and have never stayed in a place so beautiful.
I have stayed at this wonderful villa twice and will definitely be going back. The first time I went for a week with my girlfriends and we had such a fabulous time I booked it the next year!
This property certainly lives up to the hype. It is selling "turn-key" furnished with an excellent ROI and an extremely professional staff that can be kept in place. The cash flow will remain strong as upscale tourism continues to increase in the Southern Zone of Costa Rica. In particular, real estate in the Las Olas, Dominical community is a very hot commodity and this precious gem has arguably the best location in the area. With that said, the owner is in no rush to sell and will only entertain serious offers – we'll simply cut to the chase and tell you that no "low ball" offers will be accepted because this is truly a "one of a kind" real estate asset – and the current owner is fully aware of this. However, you have the opportunity to monopolize on a rock solid opportunity and take over the reigns.
This irreplaceable property meets the highest of standards and it is worth every dime and more. It has huge upside in the most desirable location in a very hot market that is rapidly on the rise. Park your money here and watch it grow on multiple levels – on the short term with steady rental income and on the long-term via land appreciation. This is "the place to be" if you are a sophisticated investor with the resources to purchase a showcase home in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. We encourage you to open up the dialogue about this fantastic opportunity. You will not be disappointed.
