Location

Dominical, Puntarenas, Costa Rica

Short Description

Privacy and Seclusion and Perfectly located between Dominical and Uvita

Description

Casa de Lisa is perfectly located just 10 minutes south of Dominical and 10 minutes north of Uvita. It is nestled among the Costa Rican jungle so howler monkeys, toucans, scarlet macaws and countless other animals are routinely seen and heard.

The home itself has two bedrooms, each with their own en suite bathrooms so Guests can have privacy.

The home was completely remodeled with new furniture, paint, fixtures and upgrades in 2022.

Interaction

Osa Property Management’s Concierge and Vacation Planner team will contact you after you have made your reservation. We will assist with making any necessary transportation arrangements from Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose (SJO) to Uvta. We will also arrange all excursions/activities/tours with reputable companies in the area, provide a link for grocery delivery, and make reservations at any restaurant. Our goal is to make your trip to Costa Rica enjoyable and as relaxing as you want it to be.

Neighborhood

Dominical (about 10 minutes north of the house) is a fun, funky hippie and counterculturist enclave with great shops, dining, live music, candlelight yoga, spas, bars and one of the best surfing beaches in all of Costa Rica.


To the south of Casa de Lisa (10) is the town of Uvita. The beaches are beautiful, the hills are lush, wildlife is abundant and its the perfect place to surf, horseback ride or just relax. If you are looking for a beautiful beach destination that is far less developed than Manuel Antonio, Uvita is a fantastic alternative. The highlight is Marino Ballena National Park, featuring the famous sandy "Whale Tail" where migrating humpback whales can be seen just offshore. You can whale watch, dolphin watch or snorkel.

The growing town of Ojochal is approximately 20 minutes to the South and is known as one of the best foodie town in Costa Rica. Ojochal also offers easy access to Playa Ventanas, a small and beautiful beach famous for its sea caves.

For those who enjoy golfing, the southern pacific’s only golf course, Osa Golf Course, is an easy 40 minute drive south.

Un lugar increíble!!!
Casa de Lisa es el lugar perfecto para relajarse y descansar; una casa con todas las comodidades y un ambiente tranquilo. La piscina privada y la parrilla complementan perfectamente la estancia para quienes amamos el BBQ. Sin duda un lugar para volver una y otra vez!!

Mark Kornick (review from Revyoos)
Perfect in it's simplicity
Nicely situated near civilization, but off the main drag. Well appointed for the price point. Already booked another week!

Kevin (review from Airbnb)
Notre séjour s’est bien déroulé, la maison est grande et agréable.
Seul bémol pour nous, pas sécurisante avec un enfant de 3 ans. Une des vitrées ne ferme plus.
Mais dans l’ensemble, bonne adresse.

Mallory (review from Airbnb)
Unfortunately, the main living areas are not habitable and enjoyable due to the excessive heat/poor circulation. No wind and not far enough up in a mountain. Broken fans. baby was sweating profusely. People coming to CR for vacation want to relax and have certain amenities. Simply add A/C.
The Osa Property management failed to meet our expectations. Poor communication. Did not solve ANY problems and were dismissive.
-house not ready, waited over an hour
-never brought more fans. Sent tech but nothing improved
-asked for blankets. Never received.
-wifi not for working. Low mega
-5 min lukewarm shower don’t expect a romantic experience
-ripped screens along roofline
-kitchen cabinets and bathroom vanity damaged/in poor condition
Don’t really need 4x4, mostly paved and not too steep.
calculated turns to get in the driveway, weird angles. We backed in
Beautiful home in great location. Could be amazing with improvements and better company or simply a person without a brand to uphold.

Response:
Mallory, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback about your recent stay at our Airbnb home. We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences and disappointments you experienced during your stay. We take guest feedback seriously as it helps us improve and provide a better experience for future guests. Regarding the communication and problem-solving issues with our property management team: You notified us of 2 issues at 11:17 pm on the first night of your stay. At 8:11 am the following morning (our offices open at 8 am) we responded and notified you that maintenance would be there later that morning, and maintenance did arrive and address the 2 issues you notified us about. No other requests, complaints or issues were brought to our attention during your stay. Regarding the air conditioners: the listing information is clear that only the bedrooms have A/C. Regarding the access to our property, we understand that the driveway's turns and angles might have posed a challenge. We will make sure to provide clearer instructions and guidance for guests in the future to alleviate any difficulties in reaching the property. We sincerely regret that your overall experience did not meet your expectations, and we understand your decision not to return. Per our review of you that was written prior to reading your review, we have recommended other Hosts not to Host you due to your behavior, treatment of the house and treatment to our employees. We genuinely value your input and thank you for pointing out the potential this beautiful home and great location have for providing an amazing vacation experience. Once again, we apologize for the inconveniences you encountered and appreciate your understanding. If you have any further concerns or questions, please feel free to reach out to us directly. Warm regards, Osa Property Management / Costa Rica Las Villas

Howler monkeys
Pros: private road, house was clean, fun decor, well kept pool.

Cons: located by the main road so traffic noise & make sure you have a 4x4 and can drive tricky turns getting in and out of the property.

Could be a pro or a con: howler monkeys WE ❤️ed them

Ricardo (review from Airbnb)
La casa está genial, con detalles muy bonitos, es más amplia de lo que se puede apreciar en las fotos. La ubicación es un entorno natural con un paisaje increible, al fondo el mar, rodeado de naturaleza y a los que les gusta el birdwatching, es una gran opción por la variedad de aves.
Excelente lugar y atención

Mauricio (review from Airbnb)
La casa de Lisa es un sueño. Metida en el medio de la selva. Iluminada. Ventilada. No se necesita aire acondicionado en la casa. El a/c de los cuartos funciona perfecto.
Si bien es cierto se necesita un 4x4 para acceder. Es solo para un tramo muy pequeño que se podría caminar en caso de ser necesario
La decoración de la casa es perfecta. Y su equipamiento también. Tiene todo lo necesario para sentirse en casa.
Es el lugar perfecto para descansar y pasarla bien. Situada entre Uvita y Dominical

Elisa (review from Airbnb)
Lugar acogedor, rodeado de naturaleza, súper lindo y limpio. Recomedadisimo.

Lee Saahlati (review from Revyoos)
A Must Stay! We LOVE this place!
I've stayed at CasaLisa twice & both visits were wonderful. Like all jungle homes, once you open up all the windows & doors, there's plenty of cross ventilation breezes. The private bedroom suites are massive, air conditioned (of course!), & each bedroom suite opens up to the pool. Right off the deck & roof top deck, we'd see (& hear!!!) the howler & capuchin monkey families. There is actually a resident sloth that is mostly hidden just feet away in the tree off the deck. We LOVE the views from roof top deck & went up there often to relax! Critters are everywhere. The decor is fun and my kids loved it. If someone in your group needs privacy or you have an extra guest, there's a huge queen portable air mattress (plug in & inflates in minutes). Private location, beaches & whale tail are literally MINUTES away. Great locale between Dominical & Uvita! You'll just LOVE your stay! https://share.icloud.com/photos/02bSBL9fx57fXtIpLxwO-HCLA https://share.icloud.com/photos/09biU-uNMDwH2zar4nqKB7Dvw

Decepcionante
Privacidad

La casa no tiene televisor con cable o señal satelital, presentaba varias goteras en el techo que caían sobre la sala de manera abundante, los lavatorios estaban taqueados, el agua baja muy lentamente aparte de que el mueble de los lavatorios estaban muy deteriorados, los cuartos tienen espacio para closets pero están vacíos, sin repisas, ni ganchos ni nada es un espacio perdidoLa casa carece de un adecuado mantenimiento, esas cosas son básicas. No volvería a esa casa ni la recomendaría.
