Cabin Holiday Rental
The Howler Monkey Hideaway is a cozy wooden cabina located in the mountains above Dominical. It is conveniently close to both the beaches and many local attractions, yet is a tranquil, safe and natural environment on our community-owned organic farm. It's the perfect place to unplug from the modern world and immerse yourself in nature. The walls are more than half screen, so you can see outside from anywhere in the cabina. You're surrounded by the jungle, yet with the simple comforts of home. The Cabina is mostly made of local cedar with a rare purple heart hardwood floor. It has a main living/dining/kitchen space with 2 couch platforms that can also serve as an extra bed for a child, plus a dining table with chairs, equipped kitchen with stove, oven and regular size refrigerator.

It's the perfect place to unplug from the modern world and immerse yourself in nature. The walls are more than half screen, so you can see outside from anywhere in the cabina. You're surrounded by the jungle, yet with the simple comforts of home. The Cabina is mostly made of local cedar with a rare purple heart hardwood floor. It has a main living/dining/kitchen space with 2 couch platforms that can also serve as an extra bed for a child, plus a dining table with chairs, equipped kitchen with stove, oven and regular size refrigerator. Screen doors lead onto an open roofed deck that is perfect for yoga, meditation, bird-watching or swinging in the hammocks (provided). There is a small separate bedroom with queen size bed (orthopedic pillow top mattress). The toilet and sink are indoors, and there is an outdoor hot shower surrounded by flowers that dance with hummingbirds and butterflies! The Howler Monkey cabina is perfect for a single person, couple, or family with a child over 5 years of age. The space isn't suitable for young children - the deck has no railing and there are palm trees with spines in the gardens nearby, so they would need to be supervised outside. The cabina is fully screened and has curtains in the bedroom. There is no Internet at the cabina itself. There is WiFi available a pleasant 5 minute walk from the cabina, at a nearby hostel for a slight additional charge. The next closest public internet is in a local restaurant in the village of Tinamastes, about 2 km away. Where is it? The Howler Monkey Hideaway is located on Fuente Verde, our 50-acre community-owned organic farm, which provides safe and tranquil surroundings. It is a very clean environment, and perfect for those with environmental, chemical or EMF sensitivities. You are free to hike the trails into the protected primary rainforest that begins less than a hundred yards from your door. Listen to howler monkeys serenading the sunrises and sunsets! Go for a dip in our swimming hole and enjoy hiking up the river. Our farm has water from its own springs and abundant fruit trees. In rainy season waterfalls pour off the face of the ridge next to us, and just a bit further down the valley is Diamante Falls, one of Costa Rica's tallest waterfalls at 600 feet. Another spectacular waterfalls nearby are the Cataratas Nauyaca in Baru (horseback and walking tours available). There is excellent bird watching on the farm: our gardens, trees, ponds & rivers provide food and shelter for many of the 860 bird species that live in or pass through Costa Rica. Our Fuente Verde bird count is close to 200 species! Best times for bird watching are from December to April, when the North American migrant species are overwintering here. There is a bird feeder in the garden off the deck that attracts tons of birds and you are welcome to take a plastic chair, park it by a pond and bird watch to your heart's content! Fuente Verde is perfectly located in the magical Diamante Valley, midway between the bustling surf town of Dominical on the southern Pacific Coast, and the city of San Isidro de El General, gateway to Chirripo Mountain. So within a 30 minute drive you have access to endless beaches, world class surf, or Costa Rica's tallest mountain. There are many things to do in the area; local tour companies offer zip-lining, whitewater kayaking, surf lessons, mangrove tours, sport fishing, whale-watching, waterfall hikes & rappelling, plus so much more! The Howler Monkey Hideaway makes an excellent home base for exploring, and a quiet sanctuary to return to at the end of the day. There are simple grocery stores and restaurants in the nearby village of Tinamastes, about 2 km away. You can get all your basic supplies in Elizabeth's grocery store and if you don't have a vehicle they will deliver your shopping to the cabina by motorcycle for $2. Tuesday mornings there is a lively organic Farmer's Market in Tinamastes with locally grown organic fruits & veggies, home baked bread and pastries, goat & cow milk, cheese & yogurt, kombucha & kimchi, nuts, grains, flours & spices plus prepared food and beautiful arts & crafts. Every Thursday and Friday there is a huge Farmer's Market in San Isidro, 1/2 hour away by car, where you will also find large well-stocked supermarkets and everything else you may need. More

This may be rustic to some - but has hot/cold water and indoor plumbing as well as the best shower (outdoors) in Costa Rica. Always hot water! The first time finding the place is a bit interesting - down a typical Tico road - winding...More

About the neighbourhood
There are simple grocery stores and restaurants in the nearby village of Tinamastes, about 2 km away. You can get all your basic supplies in Elizabeth's grocery store and if you don't have a vehicle they will deliver your shopping to the cabina by motorcycle for $2. Tuesday mornings there is a lively organic Farmer's Market in Tinamastes with locally grown organic fruits & veggies, home baked bread and pastries, goat & cow milk, cheese & yogurt, kombucha & kimchi, nuts, grains, flours & spices plus prepared food and beautiful arts & crafts. Every Thursday and Friday there is a huge Farmer's Market in San Isidro, 1/2 hour away by car, where you will also find large well-stocked supermarkets and everything else you may need.
Getting around
To best take advantage of your vacation time we strongly recommend renting a car. To access the farm a 4 wheel drive vehicle is required. If you don't plan to leave often you can take a taxi here, (about $30 from Dominical or San Isidro) and then hire taxis or a rental car for day trips. We have some locals who will drive you to the markets and around the area for good rates. There is no public transportation directly to the farm. The nearest bus routes stop 2 km away and it is a long walk (mostly uphill) on a dirt road that will be muddy or dusty, depending on the season. It's totally doable, but not fun more than once or twice unless you are really into fitness! :)
