PRIVATE POOL, KILLER OCEAN VIEWS, LONG OR SHORT TERM RENTAL!

Dominical Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Our extra large elevated lot provides the most private setting overlooking the ocean. The patio, with its private pool, is surrounded by the lush jungle, with resident wildlife including monkeys, sloths, lizards, tucans living in the corridor right next to the patio!! Relax in the pool, or on the patio while watching and listening to the ocean waves crashing on the beach across the street. All of this privacy, while in the comfort of a gated community of villas.

Services can be as basic or extravagant as you wish. The wildlife of Costa Rica awaits; enjoy a walk to our local waterfall and swing off the side into the natural pool. Ride zip lines through the jungle and catch a glimpse of a sloth. Ride horses through a beautiful farm setting, enjoying local breakfast along the way. Travel through mangroves to a lovely island for snorkeling, hiking, swimming, relaxing. And, of course, Dominical has some of the best SURF in the world!!

Costa Rica is a beautiful country. We love the wildlife, peacefulness and earth friendly ways of Costa Rica. You can enjoy all Costa Rica has to offer, from the comfort of our lovely villa.

The property is managed by Dave West, also known as 'Dominical Dave', who is eager to answer any questions you have plus will be able to connect you up with local tours. Even if you do not want to rent our place, ask him for his 'A Week in Dominical' document that is full of great information for any one visiting our area.

We are a family of four living in Boulder, CO. We spend lots of time enjoying the great outdoors. We love to ski, snowboard, hike, bike, run, kayak, and raft. Costa Rica provides additional adventure fun for us, zip lining, diving into water falls, and surfing!

Dave purchased this villa in 2007

We purchased our home in Costa Rica because when we retire we will spend many months a year there. In the meantime our entire family enjoys visiting. We love the people of Costa Rica and all the outdoor activities that Costa Rica has to offer, like surfing, which you can't get in Colorado. We also appreciate the emphasis on preserving and educating people about the environment.

The beach is across the street, and our villa provides elevates views and ocean sounds. Our villa is very private but has the amenities of a community, providing security and privacy. We have a private pool and access to all activities is easy!

Another great experience at the Villa!

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure to again stay at this Villa for about two and a half weeks in November (we had previously stayed there in April). We were delighted to find that several trees in front of the Villa had been topped since our last stay, taking what was already a gorgeous view and turning it into an absolutely panoramic and stunning one! Again the owner was extremely easy to work with, accomodating and responsive. We had a little bit of a bug problem one night (this is the jungle after all) but by the next morning the bug guy was there with a non toxic spray that resolved the issue for the rest of our stay. Again the Villa was super clean and comfortable!

I'm not sure about the previous reviewer's complaints. While it is in a subdivision this Villa has a greenbelt to both sides which provides ample privacy - and is a regular path for white faced monkeys. If you are out on the patio at sunrise or a bit before sunset you will see monkeys just feet away from you. The community is guard gated and patrolled so you feel extremely safe - and the road to the Villa is short and well kept (especially given the majority of mountain roads you will find in Costa Rica). We had good strong internet connection for the entire time we were there - strong enough that I was able to use WiFi calling back to the states - and the internet connection continued to function even when the Villa lost power for a few minutes during a storm due to the owner's back up batteries. The pool, like everything else, was clean - with the pool guy coming once a day to clean the pool and sweep the patio!

The Villa is walking distance to beautiful Dominicalito beach, and just minutes away from Dominical with its restaurants, market and bank. We have been to Costa Rica over a dozen times and stayed in multiple hotels, Villas, etc - and this is by far our favorite place.

Not the best in Dominical

  • 3 of 5
We had just stayed at another home we found on VRBO, and this place didn't compare. The house was comfortable enough, but nothing to write home about. While other properties in Dominical offer absolute privacy in a jungle setting, this house was surrounded by others just like it, and the development has displaced most of the vegetation. While it was nice to be able to hear the waves from the balcony, this positive was overshadowed by various negatives. The owner was responsive and helpful in email correspondence, but the on-site property manager was less than helpful, demanding our money as soon as we walked in the door, before we even had a chance to look at the contract. We didn't see or hear from her the rest of our stay, which may be a good thing. The regular internet was out, and the back-up was very spotty. We were told we couldn't drink the tap-water because the filtration system was out. There is apparently no recycling or compost in this development, so our garbage piled up quickly and we didn't know where to put it. We were sold on the pool, but ended up using it only once, as it was dirty when we arrived, and being tucked away in a corner wasn't a very nice swim anyways. Finally, we nearly destroyed our compact rental car driving up to the house, and if it had rained we would've been SOL. So a SUV or 4x4 is highly recommended.
Visit Dominical if you have the chance, but we'd recommend passing on this home, as there are much better options in the price range.

Great villa in an awesome location! Way better than any local hotels!

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure of staying at this villa for 10 days. Everything in the listing description is accurate, and the villa exceeded our expectations. Perfect location just up the hill from beautiful Dominicalito beach - and just a few kilometers away from Dominical's restaurants and market. The villa is more secluded than most others in the development, so you will feel private while still being secure within the gated community. You will enjoy the beautiful ocean views and sounds of the crashing waves. The greenbelt between this villa and the neighbors is an awesome wildlife spot! We were fortunate to see monkeys, toucans, agoutis, tons of beautiful birds....all from the deck.

Very relaxing after whale watching and surfing!!

  • 5 of 5
This was a delightful house with stunning views and the people there took great care of us. All the utilities worked perfect. The town was close and we could take a nice walk to the beach. The pool was awesome for the kids as well as my folks and the Toucans hanging out in the trees topped it all off!!!

Hang-out heaven, and surfing too

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful house was a perfect spot for us. My husband and I were meeting up with my daughter & her boyfriend, who were surfing through Central America for 5 months. We mostly just hung out and surfed, but there are other activities nearby. The house's location is great - close to Dominical, with its restaurants and surf shops (one of the boards needed repair), and convenient for exploring the empty coast south of town. Just down the hill from the house is Dominicalito beach, where the local teenage surfers were having a blast. There is also a beautiful, quintessential Costa Rican waterfall with pool that you can walk to, across the river that's by the local school. The house itself is even nicer than the photos, with a big, open living area with lots of windows, and a beautiful, outside wrap-around living area with small pool. We loved hanging out on the back deck, watching the waves below and enjoying the breezes. This is a really great place to stay if you're interested in the beautiful southern part of the central coastline, and want a special place to stay.

Pura Vida!

  • 5 of 5
We spent five lovely months at this villa. Inside it's very roomy and modern with loads of windows to take advantage of the view. The kitchen came fully equipped including a dishwasher and food disposal. The two master bedrooms are large and comfortable with great views from the balconies. The villa is very private yet it enjoys the security of a gated community. The ocean view is fantastic and the villa is close enough that you can hear the sound of the surf and even the odd exuberent shout from a surfer catching the perfect wave. We were able to enjoy and photograph a wide variety of wildlife right from the deck, including toucans, a mother sloth with her baby, iguanas, agoutis, monkeys and dozens of kinds of birds. The staff were all very friendly and more than willing to help out. We really enjoyed being able to have a quick cool down in our own private pool. When we first arrived, the road to the villa was badly washed out from heavy rains, however it was repaired a couple of months later. We do, however, recommend a four wheel drive. Once you get down to the paved highway you'll find Dominicalito beach and a handful of restaurants. 3 Km North is the surfing town of Dominical with lots of restaurants and services. 13 Km South is Uvita, with even more services including two large supermarkets and several awesome beaches including the Whale's Tail. We would highly recommend this villa as a perfect vacation home!
