About the Owner

We are a Canadian family of four, with two small children aged 2 and 5 years old. We live just west of Edmonton Alberta. My wife and I grew up in this area and now live on an acreage on my family's old homestead. I work in the Alberta oilfield at one of Alberta's many oil plants. My wife stays at home with our children and takes care of them, our acreage, dogs, cats, wild birds, even the odd fox and deer. Like many Canadians we desire an escape during the brutal winters and Costa Rica is the place for us. Friendly people, spectacular natural beauty, great food, and tons of adventures to be found!

We spent 2 weeks at the property with our famliy and inlaws. We had 4 children under 10 in the house and had plenty of room. The itchen was great fro cooking meals at home and the soda was right next door. Rosa helped us with lots of laundry given our crew. THe pool area was well maintained and the pool was just the right size. The location was insanely cool. We could walk to the beach and only needed a car for a few days when we wanted to go out and explore. We will be back fro sure!!

Great house in Dominical

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to this area of CR. Dominical is a great little town which we enjoyed very much. The house was perfect for our two week stay. Everything was like new with a great kitchen and outside sitting space. We loved jumping in the pool after the beach walks. We had a car the entire time but did not use around Dominical at all because everything is close enough walk to. We saw lots of birds and lizards sitting out on the patio. I would highly recommend this place.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas vacation at this spacious, peaceful and modern Dominical vacation home. We were 6 adults including two 18 year-olds. We were grateful the home had such a effective air-conditioning which could be adjusted for each room, consistent and strong Wi-Fi, convenient appliances (coffee maker, large refrigerator, blender, ice maker) extra blankets, ample downstairs seating and an outside shower next to the back patio. This is a lovely place, which feels brand-new with a simple modern interior and refreshing pool and shaded seating area outback.

We were thrilled to see how close we were to the beach and the fun town with basic stores gas ATM and fun nightlife for our daughter's 18th birthday. Rosa (the rental manager) and her son, Alex, are very friendly and helpful. After living like a local for a few days, we realized how fortunate we were to stay in one of the nicest places in town.

Short walk to the beach

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay at this property! The house was spacious and in great condition. The small pool was very nice and a great way to cool off on a hot day. Rosa, the property manager, was very sweet. She brought us fresh baked muffins and checked to see if we needed anything many times throughout our stay. The property is situated just a short walk from the beach (1 minute). The best smoothies and inexpensive authentic Costa Rican food is right next door! I would definitely recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in Playa Dominical.

Had a blast!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time here. The location is great- close to beach, restaurants, shops etc. We all enjoyed relaxing in the pool- especially fun during a rain storm!
Beds comfy, well maintained unit. We had a wonderful day up at the waterfalls- loved the natural slide.
There were lots of other activities we could have done if we had more time- looks like we will have to return!

From the Owner

We vacationed at this property in March 2014 and fell in love with the area and Villa. The property manager Rosa is very knowledgable and she really made us feel like we owned the place, so we decided to buy it. We plan on vacationing there every winter and thought if we could do that along with letting other people enjoy the experience then we were making a good choice. The Villa was completed construction in 2012, and is fantastically finished. The layout allows the Villa to be great for families. The master bedroom is the first of two on the upper floor, only steps away from the second bedroom. If there is need for more guests a third bedroom on the main floor is perfectly situated and also the main bedroom has a futon. The 2.5 baths was a must for us as I am the only male in the family so the girls will be set up for 'getting ready' for years to come. Our favourite thing about it was the pool. It was perfect for our two young girls and it is so nice to be able to cool down in there whenever we wanted. The outdoor shower was awesome too, gave a place to wash all the sand out of the swimming trunks without getting it all over the Villa.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Quepos at 20 Miles Nearest Barpub : Tortilla Flats at 0.3 Miles Nearest Motorway : Hiway 34, Constanera Sur at 1 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Cafe Ensueno at 50 Metres Nearest Beach : Playa Dominical at 100 Metres Car: not necessary

This tropical paradise has everything you will need to enjoy a relaxed, stress free vacation. If the heat is getting to you take a short walk to the Pacific Ocean and cool off, or just take a dip in your own private salt water pool. If you prefer to relax and listen to the waves that is exactly what you can do from your front patio. There are many fantastic restaurants to eat at in Dominical. Only a minute walk from the villa is Cafe Ensueno, authentic Costa Rican food with the best tropical smoothies we have ever tasted. If it is a Tuesday and you are looking to eat out try San Clemente Bar & Grill. The Taco Tuesday deal is super cheap and the tacos are excellent. Or maybe pasta, sushi, or pizza? Many restaurants in town all with their own unique flair. I know the girls like to shop and there are many small shops in town with dresses, swim wear, clothes, and souvenirs. Not to mention the daily sellers that set up along the beach with all kinds of cool trinkets. There is no need to rent a car while in Dominical, everything you require is within walking distance. Our property manager Rosa will be happy to help you with anything you may want whether it be a zip-line canopy tour, a relaxing massage at the villa, a ride out on a boat to whale watch or fish, a scuba or snorkelling adventure, surf lessons or rentals, yoga and pretty much anything else Costa Rica has to offer. There are many waterfalls located in the vicinity of the villa, the closest being at Uvita a 10 minute drive down the road. We had a great time playing in the much cooler mountain waters and may have even dived off a cliff, swung on a rope swing, and slid down a fall like a water-slide. We stayed here on our last vacation and loved it so much we decided to buy the property so we can enjoy the same vacation year after year. I hope your stay is as memorable as ours, it truly is paradise.

From the Owner

There is little, if anything, not to love about this property. The pool, the views, the 'new' feeling, it all adds up and is really quite impressive. The finished details are beautiful; teak woodwork throughout, new stainless steel appliances, new comfortable beds, and the space itself gives it both function and fashion. We had looked for months on end for a vacation rental and are so happy we got it right on our first try. It really feels like home and if anything is required our property manager Rosa will take care of whatever you may need quickly and to your satisfaction. She has lived there for 13 years and knows everybody and everything you'll want to enjoy your vacation.
