House lay-out: One bedroom is located upstairs and has its own bathroom. From this double bed 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. Thats how I like to start the day.
The downstairs bedroom has a double bed and ocean view as well. It however comes with an ocean mural and a private bathroom with a jacuzzi.
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.
The deck is right off the kitchen which is 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.
Its truly a sweet little spot for relaxing after an adventure.
Why Dominical? Why this House?: Although Costa Rica has many great beaches, we love Dominical the best. The town is very managable and the house is 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 claim to have an ocean view but neglect to mention they 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.
Things that are 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 special 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.
