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.

traveler reviews for this dominical villa rental

Absolutely stunning !!!

Review submitted: August 4, 2014   Date of arrival: July 13, 2014

From the first day to the last, I could not stop looking out from the balcony of the house. Whether it was watching the wild life teaming through the trees in the early morning hours while sipping my coffee, or seeing the nightly lightning shows that could rival most fireworks displays, the view was spectacular. We did go during the "drier" part of the rainy season, however, there was never a time when the rain hampered our fun. It seemed that the only time we encountered rain was starting in the late afternoon.

The house is simply elegant and very relaxing. Perfect for a family of four. The drive to the house is a short very steep dirt road in a gated community but it does require a vehicle that can make the climb. Costa rica is an incredible blend of relaxing beauty and rugged terrain.


Our family greatly enjoyed the excursions we took, especially the river rafting down the Coto Brus River and the horse back trip to Nauyaca falls. The staff that work these excursions are very friendly and work hard to make the trip very enjoyable. Along with the paid excursions we found a free activity that the children enjoyed frequently. There is a beautiful water fall a short drive (4-5 minutes) from the house that you can walk down to and enjoy swinging from a rope swing into the pool at the bottom of the falls.

This was a great vacation, one that we al will remember for a long time to come. I highly recommend this to anyone who really is wanting to disconnect from their cares for a while. Although you can stay connected with the in house wifi, most of the time we chose to "misplace" our electronics.

Dear Catherine,

Sorry, I did not get back to you earlier.
We just came back from our Costa Rica vacation Sunday night.

I would like to thank you very much for letting us stay in your gorgeous house in Domenicalito. It was the perfect place for us to stay; the house is equipped with everything you could possibly need and it is in great condition. We enjoyed the beautiful view, the daily cleaned pool, friendly staff, the sloth in the tree, monkeys, birds, and other wild life, local food as well as the great beaches. My kids loved boogie boarding ad were catching waves until their tummies hurt.

We had a wonderful, relaxed time and hope to come back one day.
Hopefully you and your family had a great trip to Europe and enjoyed your stay there.

Best,
Kristin

Fantastic!

Review submitted: July 27, 2014   Date of arrival: June 11, 2014

Great location and incredible view. The villa is well maintained and appointed. It was great having maid service too! We appreciated all the tips and correspondence Catherine sent prior to our stay. Alex, the concierge, was helpful In arranging a surf lesson as well as a rafting trip for us. Our favorite excursion though was canyoning with Costa Canyoning. The guides, especially Carlos, were fantastic! We even arranged a private surf lesson with Carlos who we spent a day with checking out different beaches, restaurants and waterfalls.
