“Very hard to leave this place! The view, the pool, the wildlife!”
Reviewed 23 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Jaw dropping view! We were visited by a sloth the first day, monkeys the next and toucans after that! The hosts Darryl and Donna were incredibly helpful especially when our scheduled flight in was cancelled and we had to improvise our way to Dominical. There are lots of outdoor activities nearby and more beaches to visit than we had days in the area. But the place is so comfortable that we really could have just stayed put and been quite happy. The house was spotlessly clean and obviously well maintained. The garden and pool are very well cared for. While close to the newly paved main road, you feel completely secluded and can not see anything but trees , beaches and ocean. Watching the sunrise from the main bedroom every morning was amazing. Grocery shopping is only minutes away in Uvita. A 4x4 is not necessary to access this house but useful to have to visit the nearby wildlife sanctuary and other nearby locations. Highly recommended.

“Do not miss this experience!”
Reviewed 18 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

This is a "1 of a kind" property that puts you in a private, lush surounding that makes you feel a part of it. You can open the entire first floor, and all the house including private baths, to further the "at one" with nature experience. I will say no more so you can choose and then say " now we know what the Yaun Family was talking about". Everyone involved in this operation from Reillys the owners, to Donna the manager and last but not least Joiner the caretaker are wonderful human beings who made this the Yauns Dream Vacation. Thank you all so much! We Will Be Back! Oh, stay at least a week! We have a home on a beautiful white sand beach and still did not want to leave.
