Overview

Dominical House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 2 kitchens sleeps 8

This beach house hovers over the breaking waves of Dominical Beach. It is perched on a hill 200 meters from the ocean on a secluded beach and is a perfect home base for beach and mountain adventures. This 3 bedroom, 3 bath, 2 kitchen home is perfectly located in one of Costa Rica's most wild and scenic areas, right between Play Dominical and Playa Dominicalito. The National Wildlife Reserve Hacienda Baru is less then 5 minutes away and the "must see" Whale's Tail National Park is about 20 minutes away. Also, the world famous Maunuel Antonio National Park is 45 minutes away and makes for a great day trip. Corcovado and the Osa Penninsula are right around the corner and would make for a great weekend trip.

The house itself is set up with an amazing covered deck that quickly becomes the hang out area for everyone. There is also an outdoor patio downstairs that is perched above the ocean. It is the perfect spot to watch the sun set into the pacific and enjoy a tasty beverage. Manuel Antonio can be seen clearly from this perch, as well as the waves crashing on dominical beach.

Both kitchens are set up with everything you need to make a healthy and delicious tropical meal.

The house is furnished with artistic and locally made tropical hard wood pieces that are a nice compliment to the clean/tiled feel of the place.

All 3 bedrooms have their own full bathroom. From the beds in each of the rooms, you can wake up and see and hear the ocean without lifting your head off the pillow. Then have a cup of coffee and walk 2 minutes down the hill for a quick dip in the pacific. That's how we like to start the day.

One of the downstairs bedrooms has 2 bunk beds as well as an ocean themed mural.

The yard has citrus trees, papayas, coconuts palms, bamboo and many flowers. It slopes down towards the main road and ocean. Birds are bountiful (especially parakeets) and a monkey has been eating the papayas lately.

Its truly a sweet little spot for relaxing and makes for a great home base for your Costa Rican adventures.

About Jane Lubbers

I first came to Costa Rica as an English Teacher back in 1998. I was fresh out of college and was interested in exploring the planet and learning Spanish. Costa Rica proved to be the most ideal place on earth for me. Its the perfect nature lover's paradise. I love the biological diversity, tropical cuisine and most all i have come to love and respect the people of Costa Rica. I have traveled the country extensively and can give advice on all Costa Rican travel plans.

Jane Lubbers purchased this house in 2010

Why Jane Lubbers chose Dominical

Although Costa Rica has many great beaches, we love Dominical the best. The town is very manageable and the house is a 5 minute drive to shopping, banks, tours, surfing restaurants, bars, night life and a national park. The house itself is not like other houses which are 15 minutes drive from the ocean. This casita is so close to everything and that just makes more beach time and less car time which I like on vacation. The mountains meet the ocean here like nowhere else in Costa Rica. You can be swimming in the ocean at Dominicalito beach and walk 5 minutes up the hill and be bathing under a 20 foot waterfall at posa azul. I also feel safe in Dominical. I like the eclectic crowd and the tranquillo vibe. Its a magical spot in the world and I feel good when I'm there drinking a pipa (coconut water) on the beach.

What makes this house unique

Being a two minute walk from a secluded beach is the most unique aspect of this home. The casita is so close to Playa Dominicalito, Playa Dominical, Hacienda Baru and Posa Azul Waterfall and swimming hole. Being so close to the ocean and having an ocean view are priceless. Also being so close to the great restaurants, grocery stores and tour operators of Dominical is very convenient. Its a superb house and location. Also, the house has a guest book that has descriptions of many activities to do in the area. That way each visitor can add his/her input and we can all learn from those experiences making our short time there more enjoyable. Its like a house journal that holds the memories and experiences of all who enjoy themselves there and want to share their stories.

Perfect spot for a relaxing beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Miramar was the perfect place to kick off our honeymoon! We spent a week there relaxing, recharging and enjoying all of the beautiful sights in the Dominical area.

The house itself is the perfect place to relax, we spent many hours sitting on the deck watching the ocean and enjoying meals and snacks that we prepared using the fully stocked kitchen. A few other things that were great about the place - it was spotlessly cleaned prior to our arrival, the decorations were lovely so we really enjoyed the space and the curtains are nice and dark so you can really block out the early morning light if you want to sleep in (which we did!). The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to prepare meals and there is a washer and dryer for sandy beach towels. The house is set up on a hill which gives you a feeling of total privacy, but it's not so far up the hill that you feel isolated or that it is inconvenient.

There is a really useful house handbook that we referred to in planning our daily activities - the handbook has information from the house owners and reviews from previous guests. There were only 2 of us, but the house would also be great for 4 as there is another very private suite downstairs with a private bathroom.

We spent one night in a local hotel and can say that aside from all the other great points about this house, it is a great value. Super clean, comfortable and equipped with modern amenities at a much lower price than local hotels offering similar amenities. I could go on and on about how wonderful the house is - highly highly recommend this place.

Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, well-kept and had everything we needed. The walk to the beach is actually a nice little trail that's an enjoyable hike too. The owners were responsive & proactive with information, and there was a local house manager who was on call during our stay. He even called to check in and make sure we had everything we needed.

The sunset views each night were incredible. You really couldn't ask for a better view. We had a wonderful time!

Funky Beach Bungalow - Casa Miramar THE BEST!

  • 5 of 5

Holy Cannoli! This place is a rainforest paradise. I took a cab (not the cheapest way) to Dominical from the airport and arrived at dusk. The house manager met me at Plaza Pacifico and I picked up some essentials and went to the house. The internet is fast (I was able to stream videos/music) and I brought my laptop and emailed everyone to them know that I was there safe. Then I drank beers on the porch watching and listening to the ocean. I also danced to my ipod by myself on the porch because I was so excited to be there. My travel partner arrived a few days later and I had already done a bit of exploring on my own. I showed her the secret entrance to the beach, introduced her to friends I made in town, and brought her to Domi's in Plaza Pacifico. Domi's is a family run restaurant and my favorite place for lunch. Tortilla Flats was my second favorite food and they are right on the beach and the view is amazing. There is an English massage therapist I went to several times that sets up shop on the beach and does table massages at her house, I think her company is something like "Massage Ink". And Bamboo Yoga Play was AWESOME. The owner Sophia? Is amazing. This is where I started practicing yoga 5 days a week. I used Dominical Surf Adventures to go on a rafting trip. The guides were really cool and taught us a lot about the flora and fauna. My sister ziplined and loved it, but the heights are not for me. Edwin is the House Manager and lives close by and ALWAYS answers his phone. He is a great guy and will give you advice or help on anything you need. He made me feel like I had a cousin in town to help me out if I needed it. I highly recommend renting The Funky Beach Bungalow. It is around a mile or so from town and I did not have a car the whole time, because I was unwinding and wanted to be on foot for a change. You should definitely rent a car so you can check out Quepos and Mauel Antonio and other attractions/towns that are less than an hour drive from Dominical.

Loved staying at Casa Mira Mar

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I went to Costa Rica to recharge, relax, and just enjoy the simple life. We were so pleased to have found Casa Mira Mar. Edwin, the manager, was so helpful and the view was breathtaking. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend the place. If you are driving, you MUST have a 4WD or you will not make it up the hill. Thanks for sharing your place with us. The evenings on the balcony were especially enchanting!

Car: not necessary

A car is not necessary, but it is helpful. If you get one, a 4x4 is recommended for the driveway which is short but steep.

The house is less then 200 meters from the Pacific Ocean and Playa Dominical. It is 2 kilometers south of the town of Dominical. Dominical is a quiet beach town located in the South Western region of Costa Rica. The NEW paved road from San Jose allows you to access Dominical from the airport in about 3 hours.

This home is perfectly located in one of Costa Rica's most wild and scenic areas right between Play Domincal and Playa Dominicalito. National Wildlife Reserve Hacienda Baru is less then 5 minute away the 'must see' Whale's Tail National Park is about 25 minutes away. Also, The world famous Maunuel Antonio National Park is 45 minutes away and makes for a great day trip. Corcovado and the Osa Penninsula are right around the corner and would make an excellent weekend trip.

The location of Dominical is unique where the Mountains meet the Sea.

Other Activities: shopping, boating, kayaking, wildlife viewing
