Your easy D.I.Y. Costa Rican vacation

Beautiful, clean, affordable accommodations very close to funky, surf-town Dominical. If you want a resort-y experience, stay further north. If you want to self-cater but still hit some great local restaurants, this is the place. Owners Dave & Deb will play concierge for you and let you in on the hits and misses of the area so you don't waste a single minute. (unless you want to waste minutes, in which case lazing on the deck or wandering along the miles of beaches in front of the house are options too) If you are a runner, D&D; will show you great runs. Just go!

Great view and Great location!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay at Olas Hermosa. The view is fabulous and the location is central to quite a few restaurants and sights. We had a car but ended up walking to Dominical, the peninsula and the waterfall as well as walking many many times on the beach.

Dave helped us get a fishing trip set up for a low rate with some other folks and helped us find lots of fun stuff to do! Manuel Antonio and Quepos, San Isidro are all very close if you have a car. A GPS is a must in Costa Rica but the driving is easy and the studio has covered parking in a gated area so no worries!

The studio had a great kitchen and was very comfortable and roomy. All the comforts of home that you need, and Dave downstairs if you need something else! We had fun chatting with him and getting to know his area!

We will definitely come back next year!

Incredible!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at this studio villa for 9 days and had a wonderful time. Dave and Debbie are spectacular hosts and we feel they have become life long friends. The apartment is spacious and clean with a wonderful big balcony providing a 180 degree view of the ocean. 0nly a 20 minute walk and we could experience a beautiful water fall pool which was like heaven on those hot days. We did not have a car but still had a spectacular time walking the beach to town or to a restaurant or just enjoying the warm waters of the ocean. One of our highlights was the horse back ride to Nauyaka falls but there is also white water rafting and many other activities to enjoy in the Dominical area as well. We will not forget our visit to this area with its beautiful beaches and less touristry atmosphere. Thanks Debbie and Dave for a great holiday

Wonderful Experience!

  • 5 of 5
My cousin and I stayed for just over three weeks at Dave and Deb's place this past summer. The studio/accommodations are absolutely beautiful and you are provided with everything you need. The view from the balcony is stunning and the beach and the waterfall (which was my favorite place by the way!) are easily within walking distance. This was one of the best vacations I've ever been on. Dave and Deb are very hospitable and make you feel right at home. So much so that I feel like we walked away with lifelong friends. Dominical is a lovely little town, the locals are friendly and hospitable and there is great surfing. There are also some fun running trails all over the jungle or you can go on a breathtaking beach run. :) We were very happy and satisfied with our stay and would recommend this to any of our friends or family in a heartbeat.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5
We found this property to be excellent. The view is amazing.Very comfortable housing the veranda is the best.The only drawback is the road noise at night.However this is compensated by the ability to walk to the beach and of course the view.It is difficult to find property in this area with the ability to walk to the beach. Usually it is 4x4 up into the hills which is not fun to do more than once a day. This property is right on the road but felt very secure. The owners and host were very helpful!!!

A perfectly wonderful experience!!

  • 5 of 5
Everything was exactly as promised! This place matched the photos and description to a tee and we lacked for nothing! The views were breathtaking! The beach is just a very short walk away and the little surfer village of Dominical is just down the road. Dominical has a little bit of everything... lazy surfer bars, little markets, live music, little stands with jewelry and gifts and an absolutely beautiful beach. Make sure you ask Dave and Debbie about "Tuna Tuesday"! Speaking of Dave and Deb, they are some of the nicest and most hospitable people I have met. They went out of their way to make our vacation a truly memorable experience.
If you like to cook the studio has everything you need. The produce is so fresh and so inexpensive. There is a fish market just down the road. We bought an entire Mahi-Mahi for $10!! There are also a wide variety of restaurants in Dominical for those not so culinary adventurous. Tortilla Flats is good for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The Rum Bar has amazing pizza. San Clemente is just a cool place to hang out.
Dave will point you to his favorite beach just down the road and will let you rent out boogie boards. The huge waves make it a blast. The studio is also fully equipped with beach supplies...chairs, mats, cooler, umbrellas. Just make sure you bring sunscreen. That sun is hot!! Make sure you check out the waterfall form the pictures. It is awesome!
We rented a very small car which was perfect except for the main road in Dominical which is extremely bumpy. If you want to go up into the jungle at all or to a really cool bar called Bar Jolly Roger you will need four wheel drive. For the most part we were fine with our little matchbox car. One thing to be aware of...everyone has to have Costa Rican car insurance which is around $50 a day. Expedia did not inform us of this when we reserved a car with them!
This was truly my favorite and most relaxing vacation ever. The beautiful views matched with the Costa Rican's "pura vida" attitudes made it a trip to paradise. If you decide to stay here you will have the time of your life!
