The Perfect Spot!!

You could not ask for a better location. Private and quiet on a beautiful stretch of beach that you can have practically to yourself any time of day. Plus a nice large pool, a nicely landscaped yard, and all the ammenities you could want. It was great to meet Greg (the owner) and spend some time chatting with Alex and listening to his endless supply of travel stories. The location is a perfect spot for exploring Dominical, Uvita, San Isidro, and the surrounding area. There is no shortage of interesting places to eat (make sure to try Por Que No?, Jolly Roger's, Roadshack Deli, and Charter). Even better, get the fresh Tuna from the fresh fish "window" just down the street and grill up some BBQ yourselves. Great (and cheap) fresh fruit is available everywhere, including pineapples, cantelopes, and watermelons for $1 each, and big juicy mangoes for 60 cents. Explore the crazy dirt roads with your 4WD for some great views and maybe some wildlife sightings. We saw a troop of Howler Monkeys on an off-road excursion. Fun tours we did were the Hacienda Baru zip-lines, horseback riding to Nauyaca waterfalls (complete with insane cliff jumping for the thrill seekers), and whale/dolphin scouting with Bahia Adventuras (we saw dolphins!). The fruit and vegetable market (Thu) in San Isidro was also fun to see, as were the surfers at Playa Hermosa. The "guest house" was perfect for the two of us with a fully equiped kitchen, AC, and a great porch facing the ocean. We are already planning another two weeks at this hidden paradise. Some lessons learned from our first trip are as follows. Let Alex help you rent a car through a local company like Wild Rider. We rented through Alamo/National/Travelocity and got jerked around for HOURS over the quoted ins. rates and ended up paying more than Wild Rider's all-inclusive quote. Also let Alex book your excursions. He knows all the best providers and can sometimes get better rates. It was so helpful to have him around the property when we needed him. His "tour around town" was VERY useful, and we even saw White face monkeys at a great hill-top bar that we probably would have never found on our own. He'll show you where to find the bank, the pharmacy, the best grocery stores, and anything else you need to find, even which of the multitude of Ceviche stands to try (and you should try it!). If you go, say hi to Baggs for us...what a sweet dog :-) A true adventure and also a relaxing and educational vacation.

I am writing this review from Nosara, Costa Rica where we opted to burn up the last stint of our Costa Rican vacation.

I am not knocking Nosara, I swear (its beautiful) buuuut after the past couple weeks of bliss down in Dominical we have been asking ourselves all day long.... "WHAT the ---- were we thinking, leaving Beach House Incognito??"

Big Love to the whole posse at BHI. This was our second stay in as many years and was every bit as awesome. Nothing but good to say...

Alex (and Baggsie)... perfect, per the usual. Thank you.

If we hear another bad Jack Johnson cover tune coming from a bar here in Nosara tonight we might just be calling to see what your availabilty is for later in the week:)

Our stay at Beach Incognito

This was the most wonderful place we have ever stayed at while on a tropical vacation. The place was beautiful and well maintained along with anything we needed was taken care of by Alex on the grounds there. We had perfect weather and a fabulous time. The beach was right out in front and a pool on the grounds. We have nothing but positive things to say about this place and will definitely stay there again. There were nice restaurants nearby, plenty of things to do and see and yet we felt we had our own privacy to just get some good quality R&R. This place is a must...the place is gated so you don't have to worry about anyone bothering you and your things. We rate this with the highest ratings one could give a place. A must see and experience!

Wonderful!

What an incredible place to stay in Costa Rica! Its a perfect place to stay with a Family and I can see a couple staying in the villa next to the larger home. Being a city boy all my life....and getting to hear the ocean 24 hours instead of cars, traffic, sirens, etc.....was truly a peaceful enlightenment for me.

Their description was honest but they could add many more comforts I experienced, as for their photo's again they could have added more to show off how wonderful this property is to stay maybe even considering a video, but I think that's where the title "incognito" comes in. The property was very clean and well maintained interior and exterior. We went to many locations while staying, Domenica was for shopping and fresh fruits, but we also traveled up to the mountains to La Tarde to hike in the rain forest. We visited the Monkey Park at the Beach not too far from the property. We saw crocodiles in their natural habitat. We love the Eco-environment in Costa Rica, it proves it works.

My daughter absolutely loved it and having the pool there was perfect due to the high tides going swimming in the ocean would have been a challenge so she was perfectly fine swimming in the property pool 24hrs if we would have let her.

But more on the human nature side, Mr. Alex is such a wonderful person, he would overhear a concern and immediately give his input to make any issue easier. Due to a bad storm we had WiFi issues and immediately Mr. Alex went out to visit whomever to get it fixed and it was. I grilled some fish and Mr. Alex suggested a Banana Leaf to wrap the fish.....which by the way is on the property. He introduced us to coconut milk straight from the coconut from the property.....he introduced me to pure pineapple slices on the grill...which everyone loved. There was never a moment where Mr. Alex was not there to assist or suggest ideas or help. I enjoyed his conversations and his positive energy to remind me to relax and enjoy. Just a great guy and one of the reasons I will be going back to Costa Rica and staying at Incognito.

Thank you!

Respectfully - Francis, Kelly and Sydney

The right choice for beach front in Dominical

  • Submitted: May 22, 2013

My wife and I along with our children 9 and 16 spent two weeks at Beach House Incognito in May and I have nothing but good things to say about it. The location is superb, right on the northern end of Dominicalito Beach, which most times you have all to yourself. When the tide is right you can walk, run, explore the rocks and tide pools, or just sit under the shade of the almond trees that overhang onto the edge of the beach.

Greg, the owner is great, and Alex provides as much or as little of his services, which can include all sorts of concierge, as you wish. He is very knowledgable about the area and will gladly arrange tours or just point you in the right direction.

There are nearby markets to get groceries and Uvita, just 8km south has even better offerings. Just a bit further south is Ojochal which has more restaraunts to offer and is becoming known as a culunary hot spot. Just up the mountain is San Isidro which has a great fruit and vegetable market on Saturdays and some nice spots overlooking the valley and ocean for lunch. Just ask Alex if you arent sure where to go.

Owner's Response: I love it when families enjoy our beach front as much as I do! It's also fun being here, and actually seeing the smiles and hearing the laughter. Pura Vida. Greg, Alex, and Beachhouse Incognito
