2. Sprawling home with spectacular views (from USD 163)

Casa Domínguez is a sprawling Los Barriles home on a hill with three bedrooms and a hammock. The cottage, with its spacious common areas and kitchen, is all yours during your stay. The property accommodates six guests comfortably and still would be good enough for as many as eight people who are willing to share two bathrooms. You can watch TV and there’s WiFi connectivity, but the panorama outside would distract you from these without a doubt. Sunsets and sunrises are very colorful and always stunning. If you want to try out the ATV parked outside, just tell your host. Outside you’ll find a barbecue and enough space for grilling. You can drive the ATV through town and buy meat and veggies to skewer. The yard is wide enough to be used as a playground and it is all yours during your stay as well.
