Located at Dominical beach, this fully furnished 3 bedroom/2.5 bath two story villa is located steps to the warm waters of the pacific ocean. Enjoy the expansive sandy beach with breathtaking ocean views, and experience the sunset every night just steps away. A surfer’s heaven with large waves to ride.
The villa is architecturally designed and newly constructed in 2013. The villa is fully equipped with fresh bedding, linens and towels for 6 guests. There are three queen sized beds and a pull out couch in the 2 bedrooms plus den. Satellite TV is included and high speed internet is also available. A fully appointed kitchen with stainless steel appliances including fridge, stove, dishwasher and microwave are also included. A private salt water pool with outdoor shower is also available to refresh yourself at any time you wish.
There are two 2nd floor balconies and a pool side patio with chairs, table and umbrella for sitting and relaxing to the sounds of the ocean.
Dominical beach is an exciting village full of life all hours of the day and night. There are clothing, souvenirs and artisan shops, close to 20 restaurants with excellent food and variety of ethical food types, bars, and lounges and the most spectacular sunsets.
Besides surfing and swimming and taking extended walks along the beautiful beach, you can go horseback riding, ATV riding in the mountains, go on a canopy tour or visit a nearby wildlife reserve or a butterfly farm all nearby to Dominical beach.
The town has several tour offices offering many different types of adventures. The area has some of the best deep sea fishing in the world, with record breaking catches of marlin, tuna and sailfish. There are real estate services, Spanish learning center, small supermarkets, restaurants, cafes and a church.
The town is located near one of Costa Rica's most famous national parks, Manuel Antonio and is minutes from the prestigious reef at whale’s tail in Uvita with swimming, boating, snorkeling and scuba diving. There is certainly no shortage of things to do in and around Dominical beach.
We can also help arrange any of the local tours and fishing excursions available in and around the Dominical beach area.

Roy or Marlene Epkenhaus purchased this villa in 2013
We chose to purchase a home in Costa Rica as we have holidayed in Dominical Beach on several occasions at all times of the year. We found the climate to be excellent and the weather to have been outstanding all the time. The warm waters of the Pacific Ocean continue to draw us back year after year as do the spectacular sunsets. Everyone we meet whether shopping or in the restaurants or simply strolling around were found to be very friendly. Most everyone speaks English which helps as we are not so good at Spanish!
Having a Beach Side home has always been a dream of ours. The close proximity to the Beach, Restaurants, and local stores was a real selling feature. We love our house and it is the right size for a larger family to vacation in. The design of the villa is a Costa Rica style that shows to perfection. As an environmental addition, Solar Panels on the roof provide hydro electricity back onto the electricity grid, while roof top solar hot water is provided.
During the time we rented this property it was infested with cockroaches. The owners should have known of the cockroach issue prior to our stay? We were also concerned that the upstairs bathroom was basically inoperable and the kitchen lacked cookware. We had to purchase EVERY condiment. I think the cleaning staff spent more time looking for leftover condiments than actually cleaning the house. It concerns me that the cleaning staff didn't see the 6 cockroaches in the kitchen drawer. There was a massive cockroach sitting on my son's toothbrush? it looked as though it was eating from the bristles. FYI.. we did our best to clean the stain on the coach but it is awfully hard to remove cockroach guts. There are plenty more stories but I think I have made my point. We did not appreciate the delayed response by ownership and the limited effort to assist our immediate departure.
The villa is a great place to stay, close to beach and town. Short walk to stores and restaurants. Very central for day trips to Uvita, Quepos, and Nauyaca Falls. We didn't keep a car there and used cabs for most of our trips.
Air conditioning was a blessing, and the pool was fabulous (small, but enough for us), wifi was great. The kitchen was nice (knives are VERY dull, and no sharpener that I could find). Overall, very clean.
Furniture is not very comfortable (house and patio), which isn't a huge problem since most of the time we were out and about , but sometimes you just want to kick back and relax.
Marlon, the property manager was great and very helpful.
We would definitely stay here again.
Perfect Location right on the edge of Dominical and within walking distance of restaurants and shopping and within sight of the beach. Marlon the property manager is wonderful and arranged tours for us, responded to questions and recommended restaurants and activities. The only reason it's not 5 stars is that there was a water leak while we were there which needed to be fixed. The pool is great and the property is spacious and well maintained. Dominical is a central location to many wonderful activities!
Great place for or family of 6! We spent most of our time at the beach, kids took surf lessons and we rented boards locally in Dominical. House was comfortable to stay, functional kitchen etc. If you want to just spend some time at a great beach, this place was wonderful.
The owner was great to work with, we did have some communication problems with the local property manager when we arrived, but would definately return.
Very nice, new villa. Photos accurately reflect inside and out. Nice to have AC that you can control within the bedrooms and main room. Pool very clean and kept at a good temperature. Nice alternative to the ocean. Great location for day-tripping to south to Uvita (which we did for whale watching outing one day and another day of ATV riding) and north to Manuel Antonio Park. Dominical Beach a bit woody and stony but great for wave jumping or surfing. My teenage boys spent hours wave jumping. Short walk from the villa to the beach or into 'town' (of a few shops and restaurants). There's a small grocery store at the top of the street on the main highway (walking distance from the villa). Villa is very well kept, very spacious. Could use a few more knives, forks, spoons in the cutlery drawer (to cut down on washing dishes after every meal) and there was no can opener (thank goodness for travelling with a Swiss Army knife). Great to have laundry machines at the villa (came in handy after 7 days of travelling) - and laundry soap was provided. Wifi and satellite tv nice to have. Enjoyed our stay.
Our trip was by far more than we expected. Beach was within walking distance from the home. Refrigerator was stocked with drinks as requested. Having AC, pool, and a full kitchen was great! We will definitely be back next year :)
