Our Potoo Villa is an extraordinarily historic and majestic overnight experience. The 1,000 square foot home is 160-years-old & a traditional farmhouse found in and shipped from the Java Islands. The home is secured into the side of the mountain on 20 acres, complete with a spa and wrapped with a 700 sq ft wrap around porch. Featuring calm easy days, surreal sunsets and perfect weather for nightly rest. Better yet, we have in villa 5 star chef services and spa services if you request.

El espacio
Imagine ... staying in a 160 year old home from Bali 1900 feet above the jungle surrounded by ancient carvings and greeted by monkeys, toucans, sloths and forest filled with life and wonder.

The Potoo Tree House is located on a 20 acre property surrounded by 1000 acres of lush jungle with great 180 degree ocean views from Manuel Antonio to the Osa peninsula in the South.

It’s decor is simple so as to feature the historic aspects of the farm house, the luxurious bed with impressive thread count and easy open doors that blend indoor and outdoor living.

Bugs are rare due to high elevation, allowing easy access into nature. Watch monkeys and toucans daily as you enjoy this 5+ star Costa Rica experience unlike any other.

Otros aspectos a destacar
Please bring a good flash light, binoculars and a good camera since the wildlife in our area is second to none since we are situated in one of the most biodiverse areas on the plant. 850 different birds where counted on our neighbors property - Wildlife Reserve - alone during a bird count!

Frequently asked questions:

How far is it to the beach, town or groceries: We are located on the first hill from the ocean for the cooler nights, bug free life and the amazing sunsets and views. There are no nicer villas in Dominical on the beach or within "walkable distance"" even though some people advertise it. We are about 10-15 minutes from town, surf, beach and groceries and we like it that way. Its great to go back to the privacy of your villa after a hot day at the beach!

Cash or credit cards: Most of the activities in the area are accept credit cards but usually they have to be paid 1 day before making the trip. Restaurants and shops will take credit cards. Plus we have ATM in town but especially in the high season it can run out of money. Also US$ are accepted everywhere. Do not change at the Airport it is a complete rip off!

Travel Insurance: Travel insurance is highly suggested. Purchase your travel insurance within a week of purchasing your plane flight. We highly recommend that you add, “cancel for any reason” to your policy. Although normal trip cancellation will cover you for illness or injury, or for a travel companions illness, injury or death, it is limited to these. With “cancel for any reason” you will receive a percentage (usually 75%-100%) of all pre-paid costs. With this coverage if something comes up, a wedding, a new job opportunity, injury or illness or other unforeseen reasons, you will be also covered.

How is the weather in the rainy season: Costa Rica has a lot of different climate zones and they are all very different. So it can or almost will rain at Arenal and it can be stormy in the Caribbean and in Dominical we have sunshine. The rainy season in our area usually starts around April and goes until December so pretty much the whole year. It's for us the preferred time of the year with rain starting in the afternoon 3-4 pm which refreshes everything. Next morning sunshine guaranteed! The dry season especially March can be very hot and dry! By the way the internet weather for our area is complete nonsense and has nothing to do with reality on the ground!

How to arrive in Dominical: In general 2 main ways. You rent a car in San Jose and drive down 3 hours. You fly to Quepos with Sansa or Nature Air for about 20min and then rent a car in Quepos. Off cause there are busses taxis and but that's for the more adventure traveler. Most schedules you can find online!

What can I do in the area: Our caretaker can make reservations for tours like zip lining, diving, snorkeling, waterfalls, ... plus he can organize a massage in our Spa or in your room with Yerlin.

The incredible balance of sand, sea and mountains makes Dominical a destination worth traveling to. It has clockwork sunsets with a fiery glaze, and dark volcanic sands that warm the ocean to balmy temperatures. Moments away from the beach are pools of fresh water and natural waterfalls that cascade down the mountainside.

Dominical lays on the Southern Pacific Ocean and is bordered to the north by the Río Barú, a freshwater river that runs from the mountains into the ocean. creating a rushing current that you can find and track as you walk along the beach. To the east 3000-foot mountains create a cloud forest, and to the south dark volcanic ash creates coffee colored beaches and coves.

Since the main part of the town of Dominical is set slightly back from the beach, it seems to magically disappear as you drift into the water, leaving only the tall beach palms and mangroves surrounded by fertile green hills to guide you along the coastline.

The international surfing community has known Dominical Costa Rica for many years. It became a destination in the early seventies by a group of spirited and dedicated surfers, and because of its consistently good waves Dominical has steadily gained in popularity over the last 30 years. The town has become a haven for surfers, with local restaurants offering “Starving Surfer” specials and nonstop surf videos. The unusual conditions of the beach give the surf its size, dependability and the gentle run off and white water splash that also make it perfect for learning. The wave is a beach break with a twist that originates from the mouth of the Río Barú to the north. The river empties out of the mountains to the east and deposits sediments that form into a sand bar that spreads like a pair of sleepy rabbit ears north and south of the mouth.

Only recently have people discovered and been attracted by its natural beauty. Not more than fifteen years ago the only buildings to be found were a few dilapidated fishing huts built by local fishermen. Since then the town has grown to over 700 permanent residents with a number of small beachfront restaurants, bars and cabins. Even with the emergence and growth of the town, it is possible to walk from one end of Dominical to the other in less than ten minutes.

The area surrounding Dominical, especially to the south, is almost completely unpopulated. Because of this, the area is full of hundreds of different species of exotic animals including; three different types of toucans, giant green and red iguanas, all four types of native monkeys, parrots of all sizes and hues, three toed sloths and various small cats such as jaguarondis and montegordos.

There are two national reserves (Hacienda Baru) in the immediate area, and three more only an additional hour and a half away (Manuel Antonio National Park, Corcovado National Park and Caño Island National Preserve) . To the south is the country’s underwater national park, Marino Ballena. Here it is possible to see a pristine underwater world with scores of multi-colorful marine creatures, coral reefs and jagged, ash black, volcanic rocks and tide pools. In a country full of beautiful views, lush landscapes, tropical attractions, and cloud forests, Dominical has the perfect balance between walking on soft sand or hiking along fresh water streams.
