OCEAN VIEW COSTA RICAN VILLA WITH PRIVATE POOL!(CANTO DEL MAR)

Dominical Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-5)

Brand New ocean view villa with a beautiful bay view and a 7 minute walk to Dominicalito beach. You can hear the ocean from this mountain-side villa and enjoy the breeze from aloft! The Costa Rican wildlife is abundant, especially in the morning when the birds are singing. It is not uncommon to spot a tucan or other wildlife while sitting under the palapa next to your private pool.

Each bedroom (located on the lower level) has a queen size bed , a balcony and it's own bathroom with his/her sinks (one bathroom has a shower/tub and the other just a shower). The laundry room and a small living area is also on the lower level. The upper level consists of the kitchen, dining/living area and half bath...and don't forget the views, views, views! The wrap-around balcony and patio (complete with pool) is right outside the sliding doors on the upper level.

WiFi is available!!

Maid service is once a week and included with your stay.

Also, if you are renting a vehicle, it is advised that you rent a 4WD. The villa sits on a steep hill and most of the roads off the main highway are unpaved. Therefore, a 4WD would be best.

We are a busy family with four kids. We live in a Northwest suburb of Chicago. My husband and I work in property management for our family company. We are very proud of all of our properties but this one is our 'baby'. Of course, the kids love it, too! We bought it as an investment property and hope to use it as our second home some day. We vacation there when we can with the kids or without. We hope to make many memories at our little Villa Vista Encantada(villa with the enchanted view)!

Brittany Hudson purchased this villa in 2006

We chose Dominical after looking into Mexico, Belize and down the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica because of the 'surf' town and affordability. It really reminded me of Lahaina, Maui 30 years ago. It is very 'untouched'. You won't find a McDonald's in Dominical...at least not yet.

You can walk to Dominicalito beach in about 7 minutes and also explore the area and walk to one of the local 'swimming pools'(it's a small waterfall/pool nearby). Our management company, Costa del Sol, is located right down the road from Canto del Mar. Dave or Deb will be happy to make your reservation\ and can also help with rental cars, excursions, and tours. We love to wake up to our wonderful view and hang out on the patio in the morning. We have our coffee and watch the birds while the younger ones swim. We eat breakfast at the villa or in town and usually discuss what we are going to do for the day. Some of our favorite things to do are Nauyaca Falls(kid friendly horseback ride), whale watching/snorkel tour, surfing, boogie boarding, exploring the many beaches, going to Manuel Antonio for the day, and finding great places to eat dinner!

We had a wonderful stay. The villa was well maintained with the most amazing views of Playa Dominicalito. What a great location too; surrounded by wildlife and close to everything Dominical and Uvita has to offer-- great beaches, restaurants, and lots of Eco-adventure. We can't wait for our next visit!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. The view there is definitely one of the best! The town of Dominical is a wonderful place to visit along with all the beaches in the area. It seems there is always something new in that small town. And, I love that you can go on little adventures or just relax up at the pool all day. Hope you come back soon and stay at our villa vista encantada.
It is a special place.
Pura Vida!

We had an excellent stay at Canto Del Mar! The location was wonderful as well as the villa! Alex helped plan our excursions and provided great restaurants for us to try. Villa was very clean and the view was beautiful! We hope to return.

Everything You Could Want And More

Stayed in this beautiful home in Dominicalito during the first week of March. The house was spotless when we arrived and was everything we could want in a vacation home. The view was spectacular and the wildlife did not disappoint.

The tree on the side of the terrace where the palapa is was like Bird Central Station in the early mornings. There were at least seven or eight different species that would eat the fruit it provided. There was a troop of over twenty capuchin monkeys which went past the house one evening providing entertainment for us as well as our guests who were visiting.

The pool was small but if you want to take a dip after coming back from the ocean, it certainly cooled you down.

I highly recommend this home and will be renting it again next year. Plenty of restaurants in the area and lots of things to keep you busy.

I am so glad you got to see the monkeys!! That is always such a treat. I love how you called it "Bird Central Station" that is funny and the perfect description. I can't wait to get back down there with my family. Your review is making me really miss my little Villa Vista Encantada.
Thank you so much for your review and I hope you can make it next year.
Pura Vida~

Absolutely Perfect!

This villa provided the perfect location for my wife and my vacation to Dominical. It is in the perfect location in relationship to Dominical and the other towns around this area, and also has to have the best view in the area as well. The property manager was tremendously helpful in recommending and setting up different experiences for us, including a private chef that came to the villa and made us breakfast, lunch and dinner. All you need to do is look at the pictures to see how nice this place is, but once you walk in it you will be blown away even more!! One bit of advice, rent a 4WD SUV, you will need it to get up to the villa

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! I'm so glad to hear that you had such a great experience. It puts a smile on my face to know that others enjoy the beauty of our little villa with a view. It is a special spot in the rain forest. I think I'm gonna have to try getting a private chef next time. That sounds great! ;-)
Pura Vida!
