“Paradise!”
Reviewed 21 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

person found this review helpful

This April three generations of our family spent a glorious week at the The Lattice House in Dominical.
We travel extensively throughout Europe, Asia, Latin America and the United States, and we all felt this was one of the most spectacular vacations we have ever taken. The Lattice House was an amazing accommodation with which we fell in love. Our oldest granddaughter expressed all of our feelings when she exclaimed upon entering the living room with views out the infinity pool; "I never want to leave."
The beautifully designed house is sited ion a hill n the middle of a large private rainforest preserve with extraordinary vistas down the coast of Playa Hermosa, Playa Ballena and beyond. Toucans, howler monkeys, butterflies and numerous birds inhabit the preserve. Every afternoon a pair of toucans regaled us from the trees next to the pool. The sound of the surf - just a few minutes down the hill- combined with the sounds of the forest to animate the very air surrounding us. The furnishings throughout were tasteful and comfortable (even better than the photos.) The rooms are spacious and well-ventilated. When we arrived, the house was filled with fragrant, fresh floral arrangements gathered from our own preserve. A bowl of tropical fruits was on the counter.There were a host of dining opportunities that we enjoyed in Dominical and Uvitas, but the kitchen functioned perfectly for breakfasts and a dinner. Ana, our capable hostess, was friendly, informative and available. She enthusiastically explained the opportunities of the region. We loved her favorite beach, Playa Ventanas.
The location of the house is perfect - close to Manuel Antonio for great day trips: close to the beaches from Dominical to Uvitas: close to adventures! We all loved our first zipline adventure. Our first canyoneering venture down four waterfalls (some 100' high) in a magnificent, remote rainforest canyon was a highlight of the trip. From 7 to 69, we did it with expert guides.
This was my husband and my third trip to Costa Rico. We enjoyed our first two, but this is where we all yearn to return now. We fell in love with the Lattice House, palm-lined beaches with warm surf, the lush forests with exotic flora and fauna, the opportunities to explore without hordes of tourists and without mosquitos!!! No ugly resorts, casual living, beauty everywhere.
It is paradise.

“Relaxing and Serene”
Reviewed 5 May 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We had a fantastic stay and can't wait to go back!

The house, the infinity pool, the view, the property & grounds, all spectacular. It was so tranquil, peaceful, relaxing. A fabulous place to unwind, stop the world and experience nature.

Service and maintenance support team were excellent. Ana, did a terrific job arranging trips, cars, restaurants, she made everything easy.

“Heaven in a house in Costa Rica”
Reviewed 13 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We had a perfectly wonderful stay at Lattice House. We all hated to leave, it seemed so perfect for us, so well equipped, and so beautiful. The pool turned out to be perfect for our 4 ½ year old – and the rest of us too. The staff was really great. Ana was there for us at the drop of a hat, and very helpful. It was remarkable how Alexandria and her helper could come in and serve our great meal and be almost invisible! The grounds and pool people were hard workers and friendly while staying in the background. We felt very well cared for and yet in our own private paradise. Some of us took surfing lessons, others rode horses, we did some bird watching tours as well as bird watching off the deck, we went snorkeling, and we spent a lot of time in the warm ocean waters. The fun local beach towns with great restaurants drew us in a lot. But the best was the time on the deck, in the pool, relaxing with the great view and enjoying being together.

We hope to return - this was too fun to do only once!

“Paradise at your finger tips”
Reviewed 29 January 2015 for a stay in November 2014

I stay at Lattice House in early November of 2014 with my girlfriend and two other couples to celebrate my 40th birthday. The House and property were amazing. We enjoyed everything about the Lattice House and what it had to offer. There are tons of things to see within close proximity of the house. Hacienda Baru, Mariana Bellena, Playa Hermosa Beach.

We really enjoyed the infinity pool, relaxing in it and around it and watching all the birds. The wild life on the property was fantastic. We saw more than 25 species of birds from the deck. The hike to the waterfall on the property. I could never get sick of that amazing view. Waking up every day to the birds and howler monkeys and the waves crashing on the shore below was completely therapeutic.

Ana and the rest of the staff are tremendous and take care of your every need.

I would recommend Lattice House to anyone!!

“We wish we were still at the Lattice House!”
Reviewed 30 September 2014 for a stay in July 2014

person found this review helpful

This was our first visit to Costa Rica and the Lattice House was the perfect place to stay. The house is everything you see on the website and more! The house has a great layout - 9 of us (5 were teenagers) stayed there and we never felt like we were walking on top of each other. The pool and views are absolutely beautiful!! The property is so peaceful and the hike to the waterfall was a good workout, but also lots of fun! We did a lot of stuff, but I would have been happy just hanging out at the Lattice House all day. Pat, the owner, sent us a ton of useful information before we arrived. Ana was there whenever we needed her. She answered my many questions before we got there, as well. Alexandra made dinner for us twice - it was delicious. So far, the Lattice House is the best vacation rental we've ever had. We loved it and definitely want to come back again!

We highly recommend - Osa Canopy Tour, Bahia Aventuras whale watching, La Parcela, Goathouse 169, Las Esteras, Road Shack, coconut almond bread from the Uvita market, Guava marmalade

“This was a perfect setting for our family vacation”
Reviewed 30 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

person found this review helpful

In the 35 years my husband and I have been renting vacation homes, this is the first house that is even more beautiful than the photos indicate. The only other home that was comparable was a gorgeous villa in Tuscany that included a de-sanctified church which had been previously owned by the Dutch artist Karl Appel. Usually I feel vaguely disappointed when I see the homes we have rented and wonder how the photos make them appear so nice. This was a perfect setting for our children and grandchildren who explored the area daily and had all the adventures and excursions they had hoped for. While they were 'back at the house' the little girls spent time in the pool and we could see the improvement in their confidence and skills over the two week stay. We also loved the flora and fauna in the area and I learned how to let the silence, sitting in the garden or on the deck, reveal its treasures. But for me, what I appreciated the most was the kitchen and the organization of the drawers and utensils including the knives and pots and pans. We all love to cook and took advantage of the local produce which we assembled into delicious evening meals. We also found your advice and suggestions very helpful. Ana is also a great help and resource as well as a very pleasant person. So two thumbs up from our family!
