This home is located in Lagunas de Baru where the mountains meet the sea, overlooking stunning views of Pacific Ocean, 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 surfer town of Playa Dominical and the deserted beaches of Guapil and Hatillo.
Beautifully furnished, the home has a fully-equipped kitchen. Modern 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 air conditioning and ceiling fans in all living areas and A/C in all bedrooms. Halogen lighting is placed on dimmers, Wireless Internet provided, and you can also enjoy movies & music on the complete entertainment center.
Bedrooms are furnished each with a king-size bed that will be prepared by our crew with deluxe bed linens. Bathrooms are modern and furnished with wall-mounted hair dryers and deluxe bath linens.
Enjoy the outdoor living of Costa Rica while relaxing on the loungers on the veranda as the ceiling fans provide a gentle breeze. The pool is literally only steps away from the living room. You'll soon find yourself scouring the reference books provided to identify butterflies, hummingbirds, toucans, and numerous exotic birds and wildlife that visit the property. A gas grill is provided for preparation of meals from your finds at the local markets. And before long you'll be using one of the favorite expressions of the Ticos (Costa Ricans)...PURA VIDA!
In addition to the managers providing area & home information, Casa de Laurel also proudly uses Costa Concierge to provide local information & reservations of the amazing activities, tours, restaurants & spas right here in our area.

Other things to note
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.

My husband Andrew and I are proud to share our home with you.
We enjoy hikes and camping.
Waterfalls and biking.
Beachcombing and kayaking.
Photography, painting, and laughing are daily recurring events.
Andrew loves bird-watching, and Kaitlin loves cooking.
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, and Santiago de Compostela are on top. 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!
