ON THE BEACH !!!! 20 Steps to SAND !!!!
Retired INTERNATIONAL Tech Entrepreneur .......living in paradise and here to make sure your stay is beyond your wildest dreams !
Why Whit chose Dominical
Oceanfront to me is just one thing.....on the beach.....and this is EXACTLY what this is....20 steps from the beach. The property is very unique and regardless as to what other people say about their property there is no other property in the Dominical area that offers 20 step beach access along with a safe and swimable beach.
What makes this House unique
One of the great things about Dominical is that it is still a lazy beach town. Prices for meals and services are typically reasonable and the best part is most services and activities do not require reservations and can be enjoyed by everyone. We also have a much bigger town "Uvita" just 15 minutes to the South (over 35 restaurants, Banks, full service grocery stores, and many additional activities) which offers pretty much anything you need at a reasonable price. PLEASE NOTE ALL PHOTOS WERE TAKEN ON THE PROPERTY.........NO EXCEPTIONS....no telephoto lense or shots from other properties....we do not need to deceive you !!!! This IS the place !

This property is wonderful. You can’t get any closer to the beach with spectacular views from your bed as well. On top of that it has about every luxury you can think of & more. Whit has thought of everything to make your stay perfect. We will be back again.
Best vacation ever!
Spectacular! The views, the beach, and all the thoughtful preparation Whit has done to ensure his guests' comfort were exceptional. The guest suite offers a full kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, and wonderful screened in covered patio with dining and lounge space. The ocean is just a few steps away at high tide. The beach is practically deserted, and Whit provide boogey boards to enjoy the ocean that is literally right at your doorstep. Great bathroom with huge shower, endless hot water, and plentiful towels. Whit has prepared a book with suggestions for restaurants and activities with super-detailed and easy to follow driving directions, which you will truly appreciate because they basically do not use addresses in Costa Rica. We absolutely loved it!
It was so nice having you ....I truly enjoy it so much when people come to Bali Hai and just GET IT !!!!! You sure did ! You are welcome back anytime !
Slightly better than Excellent!
This private getaway really does have a private beach. However, I would not recommend this property to your worst enemy because, afterwards, he will spend his life trying to be your best friend. This has been the best property we have visited.
You were so quiet I hardly knew you were there !!! Come back anytime !
Whitney was a fantastic host! Always gave us great tips and recommandations for restaurants/activities/etc. Very available to answer any questions/requests. His place is right on the beach and perfect if you need a little getaway. Thanks for everything, Whitney!
It was a real pleasure having you as guests......come back anytime. You two were so quiet we hardly knew you were there...as you said you were looking to just getaway and relax....and that's just what you did !!!!
It takes your breath away....!
Even though we looked through all the great photos on the VRBO page, nothing quite prepares you for the “take my breathe away” feeling you get when first entering Whit’s magical place in Dominical. First, you hear the roar of the ocean, then taking a step further inside you see the stunning beach itself...literally right in front of you! Truly 20 steps to the sand and the ocean beyond!
The kitchen is fully stocked with all you might need. Large, modern bathroom with a wonderful, spacious walk-in shower. A very comfortable bad, end tables with several paperbacks that guests have left. Powerful ceiling fan to use with sliding doors open..or a super quiet, and efficient, air conditioner to use with doors shut.
But, the “piece de resistance” is the large indoor/outdoor room! Whit has just recently had screens put in around the whole room...comfortable seating, dining table, a free standing hammock, and...wait for it....no bugs! On cooler evenings the sliders can be kept open to fully enjoy the sounds of the waves breaking on the beach.
In addition, Whit has prepared a thorough notebook with details of what to do and see...excellent restaurant recommendations (Por Que Non is fabulous) and general information about the house and local area. (Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary is quite special.)
For our two weeks at this jungle hideaway, we didn’t use a car rental. Instead, we walked to Dominical, sometimes on the beach, other times along the road, and often we walked to the local restaurants and sodas. We took the bus several times and used the local taxi services. For us, it wasn’t a necessity to rent a car.
Whit has thought of everything to help make the stay enjoyable...even supplies a cell phone to make local calls to taxis or make tour arrangements. He very graciously took us to the supermarket in Uvita our first night to get some groceries. Another evening, he came over, at our request, to tell us more about the area and offered more suggestions for our visit. He is the perfect host! And we are extremely appreciative of his time, his knowledge and his detailed care of his extraordinary place.
We cannot imagine a better location, environment or host than what we experienced for the past two weeks. Go to Whit’s place...and have your breath taken away.....
WOW...reviews do not get better than this......I am often apprehensive when people do not rent a car......but more and more people are skipping it and truly happy with their decision !!!
It was everything we wanted and more! Just steps to the beach gave us the choice to go on long walks or watch the waves come in during high tide. We enjoyed coffee and meals on the porch and Whit was helpful in giving ideas of places to see and restaurants to visit. Perfect week in Dominical.
