vacation rental description

Villa Solo Bueno means 'All is Well' and you will see why when you visit our little slice of heaven. Located on the side of a jungle-covered mountain almost every room in our villa has a fabulous view of the Pacific. Immediately adjacent to a green belt on the top tier of the Canto del Mar (Song of the Sea) gated community, it is safe, secure, and rich with wildlife.

Overwhelm your senses. Turn off the a.c. and open the windows and doors. Hear the call of the toucans and howler monkeys. Fall asleep to the sounds of the dink frogs and the waves lapping the shore below. Smell the fragrant aroma of the Ylang Ylang tree, inspiration for Chanel No. 5 perfume. Take a cool dip in your private plunge pool. Have some fun trying to spot our resident three-toed tree sloth, white-faced monkeys or toucans in the trees above – all commonly seen from the patio of our villa.

Area Activities: You will be amazed at the variety of adventure so close at hand. Horse back riding to secluded water falls with breakfast and lunch included; hiking, nature photography; pristine white water rafting on class III and IV rapids where you won't see anyone else all day, includes breakfast and lunch; zip lining through the jungle; ocean kayaking; exploring sea caves; snorkeling; scuba diving; and of course salt water fishing.

If you are a surfer, or wish to try it, we can connect you with surf instructors. The surf at Playa Dominical (4 km north) can get over 10' depending on swell conditions. The surf at Playa Dominicalito, a 10 minute walk down from our villa, is ideal for learning with waves to 5+ ft. depending on swell conditions. Playa Hermosa, located about 10 km south, is also very popular. Boogie boarding is widely enjoyed at these beaches, although the rip tides at Playa Dominical make it unsafe for inexperienced swimmers during low tide.

Area Birding: Costa Rica is only about the size of West Virginia, yet has more than 830 species of birds. If you are a serious birder, Costa Rica is the pinnacle adventure. The owners are life-long birders and can help you with resident guides so that you will spot many of the 350 species in our immediate area. If you are driving to Dominical from San Jose, we can also tell you where you will have a good chance of seeing the Resplendent Quetzal along the way.

One note of caution about Villa Solo Bueno - the Chestnut Billed Toucans might interrupt the occasional siesta as they communicate with each other in the trees above.

Area restaurants : There are dining options in the area to suit every pallet and budget; From funky surfer shacks that serve a great breakfast on the Dominical beach to more upscale French/Canadian, Italian and fresh seafood restaurants serving fabulous fresh food al fresco style. A list of our favorites is kept in the villa for your reference and our on-site concierge can make the reservations, if needed.

Va-Cay in Costa Rica

Review submitted: June 29, 2014   Date of arrival: May 16, 2014

A beautiful setting in Dominical sits this wonderful home, overlooking the coast. Our stay was simply outstanding with all the great excursions in the surrounding area. Our concierge, Alexandre, handled all our adventures and even provided us with our initial groceries. One of our favorite activities was the dinner prepared for us at the villa by the private chef. Our horse ride was the best ever and the zip lining was incredible.

We visited the rain forest national park in Quepos and secured a guide to take us around with his viewing scope. It was stunning and very fun to see the wildlife, but also to understand the love they have for their wilderness.

We will highly recommend this place to all our friends and hope that you will reserve this wonderful home for your stay in Costa Rica.

Paradise found in Costa Rica...

Review submitted: May 1, 2014   Date of arrival: April 8, 2014

Villa Solo Bueno was an incredible home away from home with amazing views, wildlife and amenities. From the moment we walked into the Villa, we were completely amazed at the gorgeous views, the beautiful home, balconies and wildlife surrounding us. The pictures do not do this was spotless clean, everything was new, well cared for, there were even 2 girls who came and cleaned every other day, which was totally unexpected and terrific. The guard at the entrance became our friend for our entire stay and there was also a guard walking the property at all times making us feel completely comfortable whether we were at the Villa or on our great adventures. We loved being on the balconies, morning and night, sitting and enjoying the ocean view on one side and the jungle and wildlife on the other. We loved sitting near the private pool and under the lovely palapa. From the moment we made the reservation, Catherine was so incredibly kind and helpful, enabling us to enjoy each moment we were there. From the list she sent of what to bring (very helpful) to the myriad of activities listing that she sent us, it enabled us to get the very most out of our visit. Alex and Ignacio were wonderful and helpful with restaurants, planning activities for us and helping us with anything we needed. We would go down the hill each day and explore different areas each day. It's a place you want to get lost, then find your way back, seeing beauty everywhere in all the beaches, mountains, mangroves and wildlife. Manuel Antonio National Park was amazing and we had a wonderful private guide. Bring your swimsuit to go into the ocean when you're done going through the park. Don Lulo's horseback ride and short hike to the Nauyaca Falls was awesome. Breakfast and dinner is included on the trip and the swim at the falls was a great adventure. The wildlife was unsurpassed. Just from our gorgeous balconies from the Villa, we saw howler monkeys passing through the trees, white-faced monkeys, toucans, lovely birds, poison dart was truly amazIng. You feel like you are in the jungle when you are in the Villa, yet the sweeping ocean views are phenomenal. Not only would I recommend Villa Solo Bueno to others, we will stay there again! The experience was amazing and we want to return already! The Villa is a prime choice to give you a great visit to CR. We thank you, Catherine and Charles and wish you many blessings in your wonderful Villa and we will return as soon as possible!

A wonderful getaway!

Review submitted: February 18, 2014   Date of arrival: January 26, 2014

This is a great home for a getaway that can be as relaxing or as adventuresome as you want! The home is definitely as-advertised; well-furnished, comfortable, with great views of the jungle and ocean - the pool is great for relaxing and cooling-off! We started our mornings on the veranda with great coffee and ended most days in the same spot with cocktails - listening to the sounds of the jungle, which change throughout the day. In between, there was fishing, snorkeling, beach-combing, boogie boarding and whatever else sounded like fun! The owner is extremely accommodating and helpful - available to answer every question you may have before you get to Dominical; and once you're there, you have a concierge available to give great suggestions based upon whatever activities you are interested in! A great vacation spot - a great home - a great owner! You won't be disappointed (but definitely rent a 4WD)!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway
