Villa Lagunas is a very private and spacious 2 bedroom / 1 bathroom home on the hills of Lagunas de Baru where the mountains meet the sea, overlooking stunning views Lagunas valleys, mountains and jungle.

Many first-time visitors to the area don't realize that beachfront property here is very hot and humid but up here it can be ten degrees cooler with wonderful breezes coming in off the ocean, yet only a 10-minute drive to the surf town of Playa Dominical and the deserted beaches of Guapil and Hatillo.

With gorgeous mountain views and a large yard teeming with birds & wildlife, colorful plants and flowers, you can lounge all day around the home with only nature as your company or head down the hill to enjoy our beautiful Costa Ballena and have plenty of tours, activities, beaches and restaurants to fill your days.

Beautiful views and basic conveniences in the house provide you with a very comfortable base while exploring all the wonders of the Southern Pacific Zone. If the cooling ocean breezes don't keep you quite cool enough please note the house is equipped with ceiling fans in all bedrooms and living areas.

Wifi Internet is provided, and a TV screen and DVD player are on site, as well as a selection of DVD's, books and Costa Rica reference material.

Bedrooms are furnished each with a queen-size bed, spacious closet and ceiling fans.
The bathroom has a shower with hot water.
There is a washing machine on site. And clothes lines to air-dry your laundry.

A book cabinet is set up in the living room and many reference books are provided.

Outside there is seating for 4 on the spacious patio and farther in the yard we have another table and chairs that seats 4.
There is space for 2 cars to park in the driveway.

4x4 vehicles are needed for your stay

In addition to info & materials within the home, Villa Lagunas also proudly uses Costa Concierge to provide local information & reservations of the amazing activities, tours, restaurants & spas right here in our area.

Guest access
** Please be aware that check in is no later than 6pm.
If your flight lands after 12:30pm then we advise against trying to get to us the same day you fly in. We are 3.5-4 hours from San Jose.  You need to also allow for an hour at customs and immigration, and an hour at the car rental agency, making for a long day. It does get dark at 6pm, and if it is your first time to Costa Rica it’s best to drive in daylight hours only. We will gladly recommend accommodations nearby the airport.**

A 4x4 vehicle is required for your stay. Our community roads are well maintained and easy to navigate, but they are dirt roads, and some parts are steep.

The pleasant town of Dominical is relatively small but offers the beach-lover a wide variety of nearby beaches to choose from. Playa Dominicalito is just south of Dominical and is a great spot for beginner surfers and swimmers. At Punta Dominical, on the southern end of Playa Dominicalito, you'll see the lush green land merge with the rich blue Ocean. It is a great spot to watch the ocean's waves crash onto the rocky shore below and see a near perfect sunset almost year round. Other activities include treks to nearby waterfalls including the Nauyaca Waterfalls (7.5 mi from Dominical on Hwy 243), canopy tours, horseback riding, deep sea fishing, sea kayaking, scuba diving and snorkeling.

Other things to note
Costa Concierge is our activity booking site that helps you find things to do in our direct area. From massages, restaurants, organic markets, hiking trips, surf lessons, zip lining car rental and horseback tours, we have it all in one spot. Look us up, Costa Concierge. It'll make your stay with us even better!

Lagunas de Baru is an exclusive community in Costa Ballena, overlooking Dominical - just minutes away from a beach known for surfing, dining and nightlife. The beauty of the home's location is it's elevation, allowing cool breezes and ocean views without the heat of the lower beach towns.

My husband Andrew and I are proud to be your hosts! We enjoy hiking, traveling , birding, photography, cooking and baking and all that is jungle life. The salt water on our skin, the sun rays that warm you and give you a healthy glow, the refreshing cool down afterwards at the waterfall, the birds that sing, the fresh fruits, the goodies from the local organic market, the friendly locals, and the comfort of our home definitely makes us feel like we are in paradise. Every day we still learn new things from the locals. About plants, which ones are good for you, and which to look out for. Same with the fauna, we get excited whenever we find a new species of insect or animal in our neighborhood. Trying all the local fruits, the ‘Tico’ cuisine, their customs. Their language. The Pura Vida life! And then to share the newfound knowledge and excitement with our guests. Star gazing is another hobby of ours. And the beauty is, all we have to do is pull our chairs out to the lawn and look up. Paired with a glass of wine and a tiki torch makes for a relaxing evening. What makes us happy, is making people happy. We love exploring, and have many more destinations on our travel bucket list. Hikes to Macchu Pichu, The Appalachian Trail. But for now we indulge in Costa Rica. The Costa Ballena in particular. And we love it, and love to share it! To help our guests understand our beautiful area that we are in, we have created a booking and info service named Costa Concierge. On our site you’ll find all there is to do, see, and eat in the Costa Ballena. To really feel at home can make memories that stay with you for a long time. We hope you feel at home at our place! We do what we love... and we love what we do!
