Description from the owner
Many people coming to Dominical think that the best rental would be on the beach. Fact is that it is hot and the mosquito and sand fleas are abundant, no breeze and the smell of the diesel trucks will surely wake you up in the morning. Up in the mountain there is a nice breeze, bugs are at a minimum and it will be the howler monkeys that wake you up in the morning. CASA DE CINEMA. Located 1000' in the Escaleras Mountains is this lovely private house overlooking the Pacific Ocean. One bedroom has a king size water bed and ceiling fan. The other bedroom has a single bed and a double bed with air conditioning. A 32 inch TV with a huge library of...Read more

Private Jungle Paradise.
My girlfriend and I stayed at this property for two weeks in March 2013. The house itself was wonderful; lots of space, well-furnished, and even better looking than in the photos. There is an expansive view of the ocean and the countryside from the deck and the sunsets are breathtaking. Toby and Kim were always present when we needed advice or information and were a pleasure to deal with. The location of the house is very close to Dominical and a short drive to Uvita. We found numerous amazing restaurants in the area and were spoiled for choice. To get to the property you will have to drive about 10 minutes up a steep dirt road, but the view and seclusion are well worth it. We would definitely stay here again.
My husband & I spent 3 weeks in January at Casa de Cinema and it was the best vacation we ever had. Everything we could possibly need was supplied with the house, which was decorated in warm colors and had the feeling of being in your own home. The pool was wonderful. One of the best parts was the privacy, making our stay feel like a 3 week honeymoon.
I rose every morning to watch the sky lighten and the birds and monkeys of the jungle awaken and start their day. The gardens and jungle abound in beauty.
The road up to the Casa was in good shape for our visit although a 4-wheel drive is needed for the steep inclines. But it's less than a 10 minute drive down to the highway. The pool, altho wonderful for us is an adult pool, over 4' deep through out so it may not be appropriate for small kids.
This was our 4th trip to Costa Rica and the first time we rented a house for our stay. We enjoyed this casita so much, that we had days when we never left. We will definitely plan our next visit with the availability of this rental.
Casa De Cinema was absolutely wonderful and inexpensive. This was the first time we had rented a house so I was a little unsure, it turned out to be much more than we expected. It was very private, yet close to Dominical, beaches and many activities. The owners were very nice, and were closely available if needed. Watching the sunsets from the Cinema was breathtaking. This was our third trip to Costa Rica and Casa De Cinema was by far the best lodging we have had. I have told many of our friends that this is the place to stay!

My home away from home in Costa Rica.
I've stayed in Casa de Cinema on all five of my trips to Costa Rica. I would never look any further than this for the best travel experience in my life. As a writer and film maker, I've actually done some of my best work here, writing scripts, blogs, and even songs! The views are outstanding, the pool totally relaxing, and our hosts the most generous and congenial people I've ever known. If you like movies, the cinema just up the hill (39 steps...just like Hitchcock!) is a true blessing.
When I die, I hope to have some of my ashes scattered on Escaleras Mountain. Then I can be there...forever!
