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.

Casa de Laurel, we can only think that Laurel, whom we have never met, must be stunning in mind, body and spirit, because to have this beautiful home named after you would be quite something. It is a very comfy home that will leave you wanting for nothing. The vibe of the house is very soothing, set above a primary jungle and overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It is incredibly well laid out, not a large house, but it sure feels like it. The kitchen and living area upstairs and bedrooms down. Great decks up and down, wonderful for bird watching, we saw Kites, Tanningers, Toucans, King Vultures and many more in our short stay. The kitchen was great for cooking our dinners and the Weber Grill was a great surprise, geez, people and their gas grill! The pool was a great as well, a cool dip in the afternoon was very refreshing. We enjoyed the outdoor shower so much, we never used the showers in the elegant bathrooms. Really, this is such a warm and special place, the kind you would love to live in and call home. The location is 15 minute drive to Dominical, 20 minutes to an excellent organic farmers market in Tinamaste and less than a half hour to many beaches, waterfalls and so much more that Costa Rica has to offer. Really, seriously, press the book it button, you won't be sorry. Andrew and Kaitlin, your hosts, will meet you, have a nice gift basket waiting for you, you'll appreciate that wine after your drive down from San Jose! They'll even help you arrange anything you need or would like to do. Hey, we loved the whale watching tour, by the way guys, thanks!! If you're stir reading, push the dog gone book it button!!! Pura Vida

We traveled to 5 different areas in CR. Casa Laurel, by far was the most comfortable accommodations for our family of 4 during our 2 week visit. Our hosts, Andrew and Kaitlin were also incredible. Their attention to detail was demonstrated by the awesome welcome basket they provided to us at check-in. They really focused on the little things such as making sure we had plenty of candles and flashlights during a brief power outage (which can be common in CR). They also took the time to give us the grand tour of the home upon check-in which was very much appreciated given that the home has so much to offer. From the multiple French doors that open up to the 2-stories of beautiful outdoor patio space to all of the various bells and whistles the home boasts. There is a small pool with night-time lighting, pool accessories, and beach gear available for beach outings. The home has 2 side-by-side king-size masters downstairs with beautiful en-suites attached as well as comfortable beds, flat screen TV's and A/C units. There is a laundry room with detergent provided. Kitchen is very well-stocked with plenty of cooking supplies and basic spices as well as the convenience of getting to use anything that happens to be left in the home such as coffee filters, cooking oils, etc. Binoculars are provided so that you can take in nature up close which we did every day. We saw plenty of wild-life and enjoyed the feeling of getting up close. The home is very secluded and off the beaten path, which we loved. The road the home is on is mostly dirt and a bit rocky, but perfectly fine with a 4X4, especially during the rain we experienced most afternoon's. We felt secure in the home since the home is completely gated and surrounded by nature and not much else. We knew Andrew and Kaitlin were a phone call or text away if we needed them for anything. The location was within a 10 min drive of the main drag in Dominical. We loved that we were not right in the middle of the touristy area and that if we wanted to, we were a short drive away. There were plenty of tours and services we could pick from if we chose to do so with Andrew and Kaitlin. We took advantage of massages and had some unique requests which Andrew was so very kind to assist us with by coordinating with the spa. Our hosts were very accommodating and had many suggestions and recommendations if we had any questions, while also respecting our privacy. This home and its hosts made our vacation absolutely perfect.

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!
