Spacious home w/ ocean views & a private pool - near beaches, wildlife, & dining

Amazing views and sandy beaches await at this charming home with three to four master bedrooms on Costa Rica’s southern Pacific Coast. Multiple families or large groups of friends can enjoy hammocks and ocean views off the patio, as well as perks like a private pool, granite countertops, tile floors, high ceilings, and total privacy (from fellow humans, but expect to be visited by howler monkeys, white-faced capuchin monkeys, toucans, coatis, and other native wildlife).

One master bedroom has a small balcony overlooking the ocean and a walk-in closet. Another opens out to the pool and includes a semi-outdoor shower. The third bedroom has views of the jungle, including flora in which the monkeys and coatis love to feed. Lastly, the fourth "room" is actually a small guest house on-site that features another master bedroom, a full bath, a compact kitchen, and a separate patio.

Most homes in this area are on the mountainside of the coastal highway, and many have long drives up very steep roads. This home is a rare find on the ocean side of the highway, with relatively easy access. Nestled on a half-acre at the end of a private road, guests can be assured of privacy, yet the home is an easy walk to Hotel Cuna del Angel, which features a spa and a top-notch restaurant.

Before settling on this home, the owners traveled widely and know that sometimes it’s the little things that make a stay more enjoyable. Chef-quality knives, a Vitamix blender, reverse osmosis drinking system, portable bluetooth speaker and printer (ideal for small jobs like printing boarding passes or receipts), beach bag, free WiFi, and a USB multi-charger are all provided for the enjoyment and convenience of guests.

What's nearby:
If you can possibly drag yourself away from the view, there is more to do in the area than you will have time for. This rental sits between Dominical, just five-and-a-half miles up the coast, and Uvita, less than seven miles south. Uvita hosts sandy beaches at Marino Ballena National Park and also has grocery stores, a gas station, and many good restaurants. Two miles north is the Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary, with lush foliage and exotic wildlife. The Nauyaca Waterfalls are just 10 miles farther. In Dominical, watch the sunset, surf, or try one of several local restaurants. Small, quiet beaches dot the coast between Dominical and Uvita. Dominical and Uvita host farmers' markets each week. And be sure to stop by and pick up some local fruits and veggies (some of which you’ve probably never heard of, but need to try) in the farmers's markets of both Uvita and Dominical.

Watch for whales in September on their annual migration, try world-class fishing just off-shore, or travel to Isla Cana for the second-best dive spot in Costa Rica (snorkeling is also available). More adventure awaits with ziplining and boat tours via Xploratura. Nearby restaurants include dining at Hotel Cuna del Angel, the Talanguera Bar & Restaurant, and the Bar Jolly Roger. All of which are within a mile of this home.

If you enjoy sitting in an infinity pool looking at gorgeous views, this house is a great place to do it. The house itself is beautiful, and the views that go with it are incredible. The house is at the end of a private lane, so it is completely secluded. There is a good restaurant in the hotel at the top of the private lane, and the house is halfway between Dominical and Uvita, so there are plenty of other restaurant options. We loved it!
This was an excellent home for us. The landscaping, the wildlife (three kinds of monkeys), the birds and butterflies. The house has a beautiful pool and air conditioning in the bedrooms and a fully equipped kitchen including a Vitamix blender (we missed a kettle though). View of the ocean and mountains....the best!!

This house is definitely off the beaten path but it’s totally worth it! The moneys made for the best morning alarm clock! The pool overlooks the beautiful garden along with the ocean in the background. This house was perfect for our group vacation!

We are 2 expat couples, residing in the Caribbean. We were looking for some adventure, education and relaxation from our visit to the Southern Pacific. The casa surely helped us achieve our goals. Great location, spacious, beautiful, we definitely will be back.

The home is very cute, has beautiful views & grounds, and is well appointed and arranged. During our stay we saw lots of capuchins and howlers, some lizards, and a toucan. We & our sons (10 & 12) thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend the property!

Our only caution is that the driving directions & GPS (as provided in April 2019) are not quite sufficient. Here's how to reach the house: turn at Hotel Cuna de Angel. At the 1st fork, just past the hotel, bear right. You'll encounter another fork; bear left. You'll see a 3rd fork (with a sign that says "FT"), bear left. You'll pass Flying Toucans house, stay left to continue down the hill. Casa Rose is on the right.

Nous avons ADORÉ notre séjour! la villa est spacieuse et magnifique! Les lits sont confortables, la villa et la piscine sont propres. Près de la mer mais entouré d'animaux dans la jungle! Nous avons vu des singes, des iguanes, des toucans etc, etc...
La cuisine est bien équipée, quoi qu'il manquait un peu de vaisselle, le four ne fonctionnait pas (les ronds de poele oui mais pas le four...) mais il faisait tellement chaud que ça ne nous a pas dérangé! Nous avons manqué d'eau une soirée mais Vacasa a tout de suite envoyé quelque pour réparer le problème!
Merci pour ce magnifique voyage!

We absolutely loved the view at Casa Rose! The home was amazing and we loved every second. We did not want to leave. The view of the ocean and the sunrise from the master bedroom is absolutely gorgeous. It was like no other home we had ever experienced. It was easily accessible to Uvita, which has tons of delicious restaurants. The sights and sounds alone are worth the stay at this home!
We saw armadillos, coatis and even a couple toucans!
We hope to stay again!

La casa toda. Su comodidad, su ubicación, lo bien dispuesto de cada detalle para disfrutar la estadía. Una vista espectacular, que además se disfruta desde la piscina.

We stayed at Casa Rose with our three young children for 11 days and really really enjoyed it. The location was perfect for us- sandwiched right in between Uvita and Dominical, two very charming low-key surf towns with great options for restaurants (Pizza Time: the BEST pizza I’ve had outside New York City!), cafes (mono Congo) and craft beer (Fuego)
The house is well layer out for either a family or three couples with each room having an en-suite bath. The house had a few glitches with a few minor plumbing issues and the wifi a bit patchy but certainly nothing urgent and anything that went a little sideways (the hot water wasn’t coming on when we arrived)was addressed really quickly by our appointed concierge whom I communicated with via WhatsApp.
The kitchen was sufficiently outfitted for our family (although a larger group may require some more plates and things) and the towels and sheets were all lovely.
The hotel at the end of the road is lovely and we had a gorgeous meal there and I took advantage of the spa as well.
All in all this place was FANTASTIC and suited us perfectly. Pro Tip: when you arrive make sure you stay to the LEFT when the private road forks- things got tricky when we went right!
I’ve already recommended this house to a friend! A beautiful spot!!

El lugar es hermoso. La vista. La privacidad. La casa muy bien equipada.

"The moment we walked into this property, we couldn't believe how beautiful it was. The house was just what you would expect in the jungle of Costa Rica. The view of the Pacific was breathtaking, and the vegetation was a plethora of spectacular colors. The infinity pool was perfect for cooling off, enjoying a drink, and watching the different color changes of the pacific. The house had everything we needed. There was a coffee pot (with coffee for us to use), a VitaMix blender, toaster, dishwasher---everything you need for a nice stay. They even had an essential oil diffuser and essential oils!! I love that each bedroom had it's own on suite bath. There were monkeys in the trees right outside the house every day, which was very exciting. We even woke up each morning to the sound of Howler monkeys!! We loved driving in to the small towns of Domincal and Uvita. Very quaint. If you want to really immerse yourself in the culture of Costa Rica, forego the resorts and visit Casa Rose."
