    Villa HighPalms is a 2-storey stand-alone condo-villa located directly above a beautiful one-kilometer long beach in Dominical, Costa Rica, with stunning ocean and white water views. As one of the 35 vacation villas in a secure gated community, Villa HighPalms is the most private due to its position at the end of a closed road on a corner lot by the edge of the rainforest. Sightings of tucans, raccoons, iguanas and monkeys are common.

    The community of Canto del Mar, where Villa HighPalms is located, offers convenient access to a string of pristine beaches, being only 150 meters from the coastal highway turnoff. It offers 24-hour security with a manned entrance and hourly foot-patrol.

    At about 250 feet above sea level, Villa HighPalms offers a totally unobstructed view of the Pacific Ocean, the sandy beach below, a picturesque headland, and a cove that welcomes fishing boats, swimmers and student surfers. The villa is caressed by warm sea breeze throughout the day and cool mountain breeze throughout the night. Furniture on the veranda and lighting in the garden make outdoor dining and entertaining a way of life.

    The stroll from the villa to Playa Dominicalito (Little Dominical Beach) takes 5 minutes down a gentle slope, alongside a football field, and across a low traffic road. The beach has a beautiful backdrop of emerald rainforest, light brown sand and rocky outcrops at both ends. Sunsets on the beach are fabulous. There is a popular waterfall with a natural swimming pool less than 1 km away.

    The town of Dominical (3 hours from the international airport in San Jose and 30 minutes from the regional airport in Quepos) and the surfing actions on the main Dominical Beach are 4 km away, where you will find souvenir and grocery stores, restaurants and bars, internet cafes and tours offices. Uvita, which is 12 km further south, has large supermarkets, banks and more restaurants.

    This fully furnished 1500-sq.ft.vacation home is surrounded by majestic palm trees, a profusion of tropical fruit trees and flowering plants. The corner position of the villa ensures tranquility and total privacy.

    The villa sleeps 4 guests comfortably. Please note that one of the 3 bedrooms is furnished as a home office and TV room and does not have a bed. There are 3 AC units to keep the villa cool during the day while ceiling fans suffice during the night. Quality ceramics, hard wood poles and beams are used in constructing the villa and the design is overall airy, modern and tropical. There is plenty of space for car park directly in front of the villa.

    6. This was such an easy and fully relaxing trip and the stay at Elaine's ocean view home is the reason for it all! It was super smooth getting the keys and the person who took us to the house was a really sweety, pleasure to encounter! I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

    5. The villa is amazing! It's located at the end of the road so it's a corner unit, the view is the most amazing you can get. Alex, the concierge, was extremely helpful and nice. The house has anything you could possibly need. The nearby beach (Dominicalito-walking distance) is absolutely empty, beautiful and private (except for the wonderful fisherman which will sell you the freshest fish you can get). The supermarkets are close by and offer anything you want to fill the fridge. Alex can help you with any activities/attractions you may be interested in. The villa was clean, check in/out was quick and easy, deposit was returned almost immediately and everyone was extremely helpful and pleasant! This is the place to be if you want a private, romantic, quiet, comfortable and beautiful stay in Costa Rica.

    4. Enjoyed Villa High Palms very much. First time in Costa Rica so appreciated all the help along the way when making our booking before actually arriving. Accommodation was excellent, very spacious for 2, quiet and private, the pictures on the rental listing tell the story and we where not disappointed. A leaking dishwashing machine was fixed quickly, other than that no issues. For those wishing for " rain forest meets Ocean" experience, as the area is promoted as, you will not be disappointed. Wow factor for views, birdlife at eye level from the veranda, enjoyed the daily monkey parade which passed by. Great place to explore from. Would return, that's a lot said from us.
