Our family of 4 (including two teens) stayed at Pura Vida during the green season and we all agreed that it was the single best vacation we've ever taken as a family. What we loved about this villa: The location (Dominical isn't touristy at all...yet the restaurants and attractions were top-rate.) The pool (and having it partly covered meant that we could swim even at mid-day). The wildlife (we saw more monkeys and toucans in our yard than we did on our tour of the national parks :) The price (we looked at many choices and I'm convinced this is the best-value villa on the southern pacific coast.) Couple this with the smart & considerate British owner (who's available to help but also allows his guests complete privacy) and we are ready to return.

Become best friends with nature at Casa Amigo.

This incredible 3-bedroom, 3-bath villa is the essence of Costa Rica jungle living. Situated in the splendid mountainside community of Escaleras along the country’s emerald green southern Pacific coastline, Casa Amigo combines picture-perfect location, out-of-this world landscaping and modern conveniences to form a first-rate vacation rental property.

The villa’s exterior landscaping has been professionally designed and maintained to allow guests to experience the intricate beauty of the surrounding tropical jungle and its wonderful flora and fauna. From parrot flowers to bamboo orchids and coconut palms to wild bananas, the eye-popping colors and therapeutic scents that encircle this villa are something out of a storybook.

And did we mention the monkeys? Because they tend to swing by the area from time to time, too. The parrots and toucans don’t really swing through, though; they just fly by while you’re sipping coffee or an adult beverage.

With capacity to sleep up to six people in beds and an air-mattress can be supplied for a additional couple if required. Casa Amigo features two well designed and spacious floors; a 12-meter swimming pool with patio seating; an outdoor shower and barbeque; a security safe and enough parking space for multiple rental vehicles. Furthermore, there is fantastic woodwork and artwork decorating the entire villa, with the bamboo closet doors being particularly impressive and unique.

As for design, the master bedroom is located upstairs. It includes a comfortable king bed with a separate bathroom and shower area. The other two bedrooms are downstairs, and both have on-suite bathrooms and offer easy access to the pool area. One of the downstairs bedrooms has a twin bed, while the other features a pair of single beds.

The kitchen and living area are upstairs. All of the kitchen appliances – dishwasher, oven and stove, microwave, cutlery – are modern. There is also a granite-top island in the kitchen to prepare meals on, and a dining table with capacity to seat six.

A wrap-around outdoor patio offers great sightlines to the nearby Pacific Ocean. At night, the pool and surrounding plants are illuminated with a variety of fantastic colors and shades of out lighting, bringing nature to life – even after dark. And as you stroll through the property, stop and check out the small creek and lily pond. A goldfish or two has been known to frequent these waters.

Casa Amigo provides maid service every day of the week except on Sundays. The housekeeper will also wash your laundry every other day during your stay.

With one of the hippest local restaurants and live music venues – Bar Jolly Roger – just a short drive away, gorgeous beaches to the north and south, super-friendly locals always willing to point you in the right direction and a vacation rental that looks like this, Casa Amigo is a perfect choice for an absolutely authentic Costa Rican getaway.



Great locations to spend a week!
We recently stayed for a week in Casa Amigos. Stephen our host met us on time, introduced us to the on premises caretakers and showed us around the house. He also arranged 2 trips for us during our stay and was very helpful to rebook when one of there trips was cancelled. The house is set in a lush setting, surrounded by exotic plants, trees and occasionally wildlife. Right down the road you have bar jolly roger which is a great place for dinner or drinks. Great views all around! The house is an 8 minute road to the highway, we went to 6 different beaches over the course of the week, it was our 7th time in CR and third time in the area. We plan to come back next year as well. This is a great house to rent and the whole process was very well managed.

Amazing villa in Dominical.
Casa Amigos est une superbe villa! L'aménagement paysager est incroyable. La maison est très bien équipée. La vue sur l'océan est magnifique. À tous les jours vous entendrez tous les bruits tropicaux, tels les toucans, les singes et plusieurs autres oiseaux et insectes!! La villa est proche de plusieurs plages. Les villages de Dominical et Uvita sont à 10 minutes de la maison. On retrouve une belle épicerie à Uvita, avec tout ce dont vous avez besoin. Il y a plusieurs activités dans la région. Le personnel, Carolina et Daniel sont très gentils et serviables. Je vous recommende fortement la Casa Amigos! Pura Vida!!

Perfect romantic retreat in Dominical
We loved every minute of our stay at the beautifully landscaped Casa Amigos villa….a week just was not enough time at this magnificent place! The location is wonderful, perched high above the jungle with breathtaking ocean views and amazing sunsets. The large wrap around terrace has commanding views with lots of comfy sitting and eating areas where we enjoyed many meals listening to all the wildlife as well as visits from the monkeys. The villa is beautifully decorated with colorful Costa Rican themed art. We especially loved the large private pool and daily hikes around the mountain. We also enjoyed practicing yoga on the terrace with the spectacular views. Carolina and Daniel are friendly, attentive and accommodating. They made us feel beyond welcome and at home. The villa offers all the amenities you could need and you are only a short drive away from local beaches, waterfalls, local grocery stores and restaurants. We really never really wanted to leave as it is better than being at an all-inclusive 5 star resort as you have the utmost privacy of a perfect villa all to yourselves! It was hard to leave and we only hope to return one day soon!

Picture perfect vacation!
My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Amigos! Everything from the location to the beautifully landscaped property was more than we expected. The staff is friendly, attentive and accommodating. The house offers all the amenities you could need and you are only a short drive away from local beaches, waterfalls, souvenirs, local restaurants and grocery stores. Highlights of our trip included rafting with Dominical Surf Adventures, eating delicious food and fruits, and relaxing at the pool. The drive up the mountain side is rewarded with a spectacular view from the wrap around deck where we also enjoyed listening to the evening rain and sounds of the nearby rain forest. We had an amazing week at Casa Amigos and can’t wait to return!

True paradise!
Words cannot do justice in explaining our stay at Casa Amigos! The house and property are beautiful and very well kept. The views over the rainforest and out to the ocean are amazing and are well worth the drive up the mountain! The house has all the amenities that you need and is furnished very nicely. The pool is great for cooling off and relaxing with all the sounds of the jungle around you. The house is close to both Dominical and Uvita which have everything you need from food to souvenirs. Highly recommend!
