Overview

Property Details

Updated: Apr 9, 2015
Huge 4 Bedroom, 5 Bath, Infinity Pool, Walk to Beach and Dominical

Ocean Front, Mediterranean style Villa with dramatic views, features four spacious master suites all with ocean views. Three of the en suite bathrooms feature double showers with windows facing the Pacific and the fourth, an ultra private modern glass shower. All suites offer outside access, three of which have ocean facing glass French doors with screens and the fourth with a full wall of french casement windows, which can be left open day and night to enjoy the breeze and relaxing sounds of the waves crashing below.

Nestled into the mountainside under plush rain forest canopy, Villa Alegría is one of the very few properties available which offers both the privacy and views you desire and the close proximity to amenities and ease of access. 200 meters (220 yards) down the mountain, you will find access to Roca Verde restaurant and beach, as well as access to the main thoroughfare which runs throughout southern Costa Rica. It is only a five minute walk from Villa Alegría or a quick two minute drive for you to dip your toes into the warm Pacific waters. Dominical Beach, a world famous surfing location, is only one kilometer (less than a mile) from the house and the beaches of Dominicalito, Playa Hermosa, and the extraordinary Playa Ventanas in Ojochal are all easily accessible by car. The elevation of the property provides the perfect balance of amazing views, privacy and access, ensuring your experience will be unforgettable!

Bask in the gorgeous Costa Rican sunshine on our extended patio or cool off in the beautiful infinity pool overlooking the ocean and tropical landscaping. You will be amazed by the wildlife! Our guests regularly report seeing butterflies, hummingbirds, toucans, coatis, agoutis, huge iguanas and even sloths in the area! Locally handcrafted benches on the covered patio are the perfect place to enjoy the spectacular sunsets and outdoor dining furniture is available for your use. Villa Alegría also features a beautiful double hammock where you can snuggle with your loved ones or relax and read a book from our library while listening to the waves.

Villa Alegría's four spacious Master Suites all have ocean views and en suite bathrooms. Three of the bedrooms are outfitted with king beds, two of which also include futons for seating or extra guests. The fourth bedroom features a queen bed. We are a family friendly house and also offer a Pack n' Play for infants and toddlers, as well as an infant bathing tub for your use. All rooms have spacious closets and both ceiling and personal fans, along with individual air conditioning units if you prefer. We always encourage our guests to take advantage of the very special location and let the sounds of the ocean waves lull you to sleep and help us to protect Costa Rica's pristine environment by keeping energy use low, but know that even the most adventurous travelers sometimes need a break from the tropical heat!

Special amenities include books and games for your friends and family to enjoy, a personal concierge with over 10 years of experience arranging and assisting our guests' ideal vacations, washer and dryer on site, and a United States based VPN, which will allow you to access all streaming and subscription services which are otherwise blocked in Costa Rica. (Netflix, Hulu, Spotify, Pandora, etc.) If requested, owner can reassign the VPN to your country of origin during your stay so that you may access country specific internet services. The property has also recently had over $25,000 in upgrades!

The rental price include professional cleaning before and after your stay, but housekeeping services during your visit are available for a small fee. We can also arrange chef prepared meals, tours, adventures and excursions, transportation to and from the airport, and most anything else your heart desires! Villa Alegría is our dream home and we want your visit to be just as special and amazing as our time in this beautiful country, so please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or suggestions. Pura Vida!

About the Owner

My name is Todd Harris, me and my wife have been lucky enough to buy our Costa Rica beach dream house. We were fortunate to give birth to our second child in July right here at Villa Alegria and it was an amazing experience. We live at this house for much of the year and will let renters enjoy this fabulous house and location when we are spending time elsewhere. We are very responsive to calls and emails and are determined to make the experience as easy and enjoyable for our special guests.

Perfect house at perfect location!

  • 5 of 5
So wonderful - the house was spacious, comfortable, beautiful, with gorgeous views of the ocean. The pool was perfect for cooling off after a day of excursions, or just for relaxing next to - looking at the waves rolling in from the Pacific. I do suggest a 4x4 since the hill to get to the house is steep and partially unpaved. But you won't regret it since you can drive (or walk, by the beach) to downtown Dominical. The town is charming with a handful of restaurants, and the people are incredibly friendly. We rented the villa with another family and it was great. Todd and Marlon were also incredibly helpful in all things house and excursion related. Highly recommend this house and Dominical if you are looking for the perfect combination of comfort and adventure.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
We loved this house. It was very comfortable and well cared for. Both the owner and the manager were friendly and accommodating. We would definitely stay again! The beach across the highway from the house is nice most of the day and you can pretty much walk to anything you need. The local people are very friendly. The house felt private but had wonderful views. The space is large and open inside and the bedrooms are huge compared to others that we looked at. The bathrooms are nice as well. The patio/ pool area has terrific views and was well maintained as was the rest of the grounds. The wifi was great and had plenty of speed. Both of the men in our group needed to have access to their work and it was perfect.

Absolutely Perfect Home!

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough good things about this home. It is a beautiful home! We were traveling with another family and with four bedrooms, each with their own bathroom there was plenty of privacy for everyone. The bedrooms were also spread out, so no two bedrooms are together. The views are out of this world, yet the home is close to civilization. With every bedroom having a view, we didn't have to fight over who got the best bedroom. After spending a lot of time driving around the country on crazy Costa Rican roads, we were grateful that it was only 100 feet on a dirt road to get to this home. Yes, you do need four wheel drive, but I would definitely recommend that for Costa Rica anyway. The pool was very clean as was the entire home.
We had been looking for a house on the beach, but after seeing the area, soon realized that the homes on the beach are not the highest of quality. This is probably as close as you will get to the beach, without sleeping in a shanty.
The rental price was also a great value. We had been looking to rent another home which we soon discovered was only 2 doors down and was much more expensive. Villa Alegria is a much better home as it had better views.
We were so glad we found this home and can't wait to come back!!!

Pacific Ocean view

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at this spacious, beautiful two story house which is perfect for families and groups. My favorite aspect of the house is that it is up on a hill in a very private setting with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean from most of the rooms. No matter how many days you stay here, you will remain in awe of this view! All the bedrooms are huge with ensuite bathrooms and the upstairs bedrooms have large breezy balconies. The main living area is very spacious and open with a modern kitchen and a separate laundry room (which comes in very handy since you will be going to the beach). We enjoyed the pool and large surrounding deck area for relaxing and entertaining. Another plus which you will appreciate in a foreign country, is that the home has a house manager who lives in the area and is available to assist you with arranging transportation and any other concerns. I am sure you will be delighted with your stay at this lovely villa.

WOW

  • 5 of 5
We truly had a wonderful stay at the Villa Alegria! Waking up every morning to the view of the ocean and enjoying the sunset in the infinity pool were some of the highlights of everyday we stayed there. The house is beautiful and very private. We just couldn't get enough of the large porch and watching the stars at night from the pool! Todd is really great to work with and has high integrity. He responded very quickly to our emails and was very accommodating to our needs. Marlon (site manager) was also very helpful.

I would recommend having a 4 wheel drive vehicle for the road leading up to the house. The road is concrete until the last 100 yards where it is dirt and gets steeper. We had two wheel drive vehicles and had to back up to make it the last 100 yards. To us, this really added to the experience of staying in the house. I would also recommend surge protectors for your valuable electronics as one of our iPhones got fried. We have informed Todd about this and he said he is working to install surge protectors to avoid this happening.

100% recommend Dominical! The surfing is excellent. The beaches are beautiful. There is a very good cafe just 5 minutes from the house called Cafe Delicias (across from the trapeze area). Their french toast and nachos are out of this world!

Owner's Response: I am glad you guys had a great time and thanks for providing this valuable information to my future guests.

There is actually a whole-house surge protector already installed which protects against outside surges but based on your experience I just bought and put in wall-mount surge protectors in each of the bedrooms and 1 in the kitchen and living area so that hopefully that will prevent any such problems in the future.

Our family stayed at this house for a week in March and had the greatest time. If you haven't been to Dominical before, it's hard to know that there are very few houses that are actually within walking distance to the town, and this is one of the very few. It's a nice option because even if you have a vehicle, driving in Costa Rica can be tiring and it's nice to have the option to walk to town. There are lots of great restaurants and cafes in Dominical so you don't want to miss out on that by being far away! Here we walked in to town during low tide and it was perfect.

As for the house, it is a really beautiful property with an amazing pool which is where we spent most of our time. There is no shortage of sun on the patio that's for sure! The bedrooms inside the house were great, and it was nice to have a rental house with high-end sheets and bedding because we had really great sleeps here compared to previous accommodations. The rooms are all a really big size and you can't hear any noise from elsewhere in the house when you're in them because they're well spread out.

The area is one of our favourites in Costa Rica, it has a really laid back feel but you can still find high end eateries and lots of activities to keep everyone in your group happy. If you stay here, definitely check out the restaurant PorQueNo (also within walking distance) for breakfast and dinner! Also the beach directly below the house is almost private and more beautiful than the beach located in the actual town of Dominical, it's worth checking out. If you have a vehicle, there is a 4km hike to Nauyaca Waterfalls which was one of our favourite things we did in Dominical. It's about a 20 minute drive to where you start the hike, but if you prefer a horseback tour you can book that right in town.

Overall this is a great house that is absolutely beautiful, and the location literally cannot be beat. It's either a 1 minute drive to town or a 10 minute walk. You will definitely enjoy your time here, and it will be really hard to leave when it's over! Enjoy!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review and the information you provided.

My wife is really glad that you appreciated the high end bedding she ordered for the house as we know people come down to relax and we want to make sure they feel as comfortable sleeping in our house as they do their own home.

Location

From the Owner

House is great for renters as 4 large bedrooms each with their own bathroom. House is right off main road and you can easily walk down to a secluded beach. Incredible location and views are awesome. Me and my wife and our property manager with 10 years experience in Dominical are determined to give our guests the best experience possible.
