ONLY 40 Minutes Paved day trip to MANUEL ANTONIO National Park Now !!!!!! Just less than 3 hours to laid back paradise from San Jose Airport.

Once you walk into Villa Playa Vista you will not want to leave. This individual private home with two-bedrooms, two and one half bath overlooks the Pacific Ocean at a unique location where you can watch the surf all day long and listen to it all night long. The beach directly below Villa Playa Vista is noted as one of the most picturesque in the area due to the cove created by the peninsula of land that juts out into the ocean and the adjoining “Tree Island” that is accessible at low tide. Further along the uninterrupted 1.7 mile palm-lined beach you see the anchorage where the local fishermen keep their boats and the rock outcroppings that give the beach its unique character.

A fully equipped kitchen will allow you to prepare some of your favorite meals using the local fresh produce and fruits. Your private pool beckons to be enjoyed and the covered terrace will provide hours of outside living, the way most of the locals spend their time with great opportunities for wildlife viewing - especially early in the morning. Villa Playa Vista was the model for this new gated community with twenty-four hour security so it sits on one of the best view spots in the development. Plenty of parking too.

The unit is perfect for two couples when the two identical master bedrooms are set up with king beds. Two twin-sized beds can be requested to be set up in one the rooms or each room can have a twin set up in addition to the king to increase the sleeping capacity. This makes for close quarters but can work well depending on a family’s needs. An inflatable queen bed is also available for additional sleeping arrangements. Rates are set for four people with a $10 per day per person for more than four people.

Internet wireless connectivity is available for your laptops or you can use our equipment at our office just 1 Km. In addition to the amenities that are listed, there are a couple beach chairs you can use for your fun in the sun, the DVD player also plays your favorite CD’s. Located only 3 Km south of Dominical you are in the heart of all the activities that there are to enjoy in the vicinity including surfing the very popular beach right in Dominical or enjoying the more gentle waves at many of the close-by beaches.

Arrangements have been made with the neighbors next door for parties that are as large as 4 couples or more if the dates of occupancy work out. There is plenty of secure parking at the villa.

Villa Playa Vista sits on a jungle ridge and so to the rear are views of the primary jungle with roads for your morning walks just outside your front door. There is even a local swimming hole with a gorgeous waterfall just a short distance away. There are beach chairs and a soft cooler you can take to the beach. We have two boogie boards you can rent for your entire visit for $10 each and also a cell phone for calls within Costa Rica at our cost.

The owners of the property also own a local real estate company and provide wireless connectivity for your use at their office only 1 Km away or you can use our PC's to catch up on your e-mail (although you may not want to). They can also arrange for reservations at many of the local activities, popular restaurants and provide directions to the beaches the locals think are the best. Car rental and San Jose lodging discounts can also be arranged. A discount for return visitors is offered for those that will want to make this their Dominical tropical home away from home. The owners welcome your inquires and are glad to answer any questions you may have regarding their property, the surrounding area and any aspect of your visit.

traveler reviews for this dominical villa rental

Jungle Paradise

Review submitted: April 8, 2014   Date of arrival: March 8, 2014

We spent a week here as two couples. It exceeded our expectations. We felt like we were tucked right into the jungle, with an amazing view of the Dominicalito beach and gorgeous sunsets every night. Being a wildlife photograph buff, I was kept very busy! We arrived in the late afternoon, and it seemed everywhere I looked I found new, beautiful birds to photograph, including the toucan and vulture sentry that watched over us most days. The sound of the cicadas was deafening at times, but did not keep us awake. The beach below was well worth a visit, something we unfortunately did not discover until our last day. We did not have a vehicle for the first few days, and that was a mistake, because it is a long, hot hike up the steep road if you go down for a walk. We were grateful for the pool. A four wheel drive is definitely recommended.
Dave and Deb were such gracious hosts, always ready to help, and we thoroughly enjoyed our day with them at their "secret beach". It was fun seeing Deb teach my 70 year old brother in law how to boogie board!
One word of caution, the steps downstairs are beautiful, but if you are like me, and don't step towards the front of each step, the rocky edge scrapes your heals. Since that's the only complaint, you can't go wrong here. We even enjoyed sharing with our friends the night a small boa came for a visit outside.
If we have one regret, having traveled south from here and then returning north again to Tamarindo, is that we did not cut our trip south a little and return here for a few more days.
Thanks Dave and Deb for making our stay so memorable.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: Thanks for the nice comments and glad you had a great time. Wish I had been there for the boa. Thanks for joining us at the "Secret Beach" and be sure to keep it a secret. We look forward to your next visit.

Honeymoon Wishes Came True

Review submitted: July 31, 2013   Date of arrival: March 29, 2013

We wanted a special place for our honeymoon and could not have wished for a more perfect and romantic spot.

We arrived at dusk having driven from San Jose and made it in good time. Dave's instructions to get in worked fine and we were soon in the private pool enjoying the first of many sunsets. The place immediately exceeded our expectations and is simply beautiful.

The villa is perfectly situated within easy reach of both Dominical and Dominicalito. You will certainly need a 4-wheeled drive vehicle to drive up the steep hill and Dave can help you arrange one. The drive is fine, despite being steep, and adds to the sense of adventure and feeling that you're staying in the jungle.

The rooms are plenty big enough and there is more than enough room for two couples. You could also stay here with children no problem; it is enough to suit everyone. The kitchen is stocked with all the things you need and there is a blender for making pina coladas. We made good use of the ice maker in the freezer and what was nice was how there was some spices and things left in the cupboards from previous guests which made it feel even more like home and mean't we didn't have to buy salt and pepper and ketchup. Not a deal breaker, but certainly very helpful.

The pool and patio outside is brilliant and the views are spectacular. The pool is plenty big enough for a cool-off and is in the sun most of the day. We would have breakfast in the morning outside and watch the tide come in, and be treated to all kinds of birds and wildlife. A five minute walk up the hill from the place will lead you to howler monkeys and some capuchin monkeys stopped by one morning on their way to a different part of the jungle.

We didn't bother with the AC apart from in the bedroom which we put on before we wanted to go to sleep. We simply kept all the windows open and enjoyed the sea breeze mixed with tropical warm air. The place is well secure and the guards who patrol are friendly. I personally never felt in any danger throughout the whole trip but it is a nice reassurance. There is a nice supermarket in Domincal which has everything you need and more besides. Be sure to stop on the side of the road and buy some fruit and make your own guacamole with the amazing avocados.

Lastly, Dave and Deb were perfect hosts and arranged all kinds of wonderful activities for us. If you are thinking of renting a place in Dominical then we can highly recommend them and this place. We will be back..

Amazing vacations

Review submitted: January 2, 2013   Date of arrival: December 23, 2012

The place is great for a party of 4 to 5 people. There is a queen and a king bed. The place is fully equipped with all amenities: swimming pool, full kitchen, AC, good Wi-Fi, TV with cable, laundry room and spacious bathrooms with hot water. The location is excellent: is at walking distance from Dominicalito beach and at 20 mins in car from Uvita. We stayed for 10 days and the place really exceeded our expectations.
