Tropical fun, adventure, and relaxation await you and your family and friends. There are a variety of excellent surf spots starting with the beach break just past the pool. The natural beauty of Costa Rica is served up inside and out in this beautifully designed home located close to town, but far from anything you have ever seen in this area of Costa Rica. The open architecture takes advantage of the incredible setting. The home feels light and airy with great views from almost every window. Lush gardens and the sweeping sand beach are seamlessly joined by natural trees and plants.
Comfort! Each bedroom has a dedicated air conditioner, fan, screened windows and sliding glass doors. The beds, interior, and exterior furniture are excellent quality and very comfortable. Much of the furniture was built by local craftsmen. The family room, dining room, kitchen, and upstairs seating area have ceiling fans, and screened windows and doors.
Playa Dominical and the nearby coastal town of Uvita have loads of restaurants featuring local flavors and casual dining. The variety of eateries bring out the international diversity of people who have found their way to this fantastic, tropical beach town. The community of Dominical is very welcoming and the authentic Costa Rican, Pura Vida vibe abounds. There are no casinos, highrise hotels, or fancy nightclubs; but Dominical does have a great night life based on people coming together to eat, drink, dance, and socialize in the casual atmosphere of this south Pacific beach town. The place has something surprising and pleasant for people of every age.
The home and surrounding environment is very family and child friendly, designed to make it easy for people to spend time together in paradise. It is important to remember as with all Pacific beaches and resorts, young children should be supervised while playing in the ocean or pool. The beach at low tide is expansive and inviting. Sunrises and sunsets are often spectacular. You will find much of what you have dreamed of Costa Rica, right here at Caballitos del Mar (Little horses of the Sea).

Our family has grown up often traveling together to the southern climates of Mexico, the Caribbean, and Costa Rica. We live in Santa Cruz, California and have the beautiful Monterey Bay as our back yard. All of us have an affinity to the ocean and are drawn to the warm culture, people, and lifestyle of Costa Rica. Having our own vacation paradise has been a dream, and over the past five years we worked very hard with our friends, both in the US and in Costa Rica, to bring this dream to life. This picture is of "The Boys" with mom and a couple of friends at Play Ventana, an incredibly beautiful and interesting beach 15 minutes south of our home in Dominical.
We have always loved the tropics and the beach. Our oldest son was the first in the family to visit Dominical. Our previous travels in Costa Rica were through and around the mountains, Arnal, and Guanacaste. We were looking for a place that we could be together on vacation now, and for generations to come; a place where stories would be written and told, where we could play and relax together in a low stress, interesting, and tropical environment. Dominical is a relatively undiscovered gem that is accessible, but definitely a notch off the typical tourist path.
We are able to spend time together, have fun, and relax. The pool is a gathering spot with incredible views and the natural abundance of Costa Rica. The home layout makes it easy to be together or to have some quiet time by yourself. The modern conveniences make it possible to enjoy the benefits of a a barbeque or home cooked meal in a totally unique setting. The home and gardens are visited by exotic birds and the plants and flowers are amazing and ever changing. We are able to go play in the ocean without leaving "the yard." It is right out front! We can go surf, take walks, and play games without ever having to get in a car.
