About the property

Night Patrolling Guard, Private Pool, Steps to Dominical, Abundant Wildlife

Sophisticated European design for the sophisticated traveler. Clean lines with warm beautiful dark wood cabinetry and doors, stainless steel appliances add to the feeling of warmth and luxury. The entire facade of your villa is glass - enhancing your view and connection with nature. Enter your villa by the winding stone staircase bathed by the warm glow of your villa or use the new upper level parking just 28 short steps on the same level as your front door. 2 Story villa provides unobstructed 180 degree views of the pacific coast from both Master Bedroom Suites with private balconies as well from the other bedrooms and the rest of the villa..

New - just added, the 3rd bedroom now has en-suite access to the lower level bathroom adding to the convenience and privacy for guests.

Best of all, this is a private community with its own private paved road and only 2 minutes off the main highway to your front door! Private road is also beautifully landscaped and lit at night- virtually an unheard of convenience in Costa Rica.

All of this yet you are secluded in the primary forest where you will see Toucans, White-faced monkeys, sloths, hummingbirds and more right from your balcony.

Enjoy your meals in either your indoor dining room or outdoor dining area poolside by your private infinity edge pool. Take a dip in your private jacuzzi in the evening and marvel at the stars - unmasked by the lack of big city lights! Your villa is totally secluded and private from any neighbors, sitting on more than 2 acres of land and meticulously landscaped and maintained.

Near the Villa is Dominical and other beaches perfect for those looking to relax or those looking to surf. Located on Costa Rica’s amazingly beautiful South Pacific coastline, the small village of Dominical is a hidden paradise with something for everyone. There are shops, restaurants, bars, hotels, and some amazing natural scenery and adventures. Dominical is known to have some of the best surf in the country, but it also has easy access to two amazing national parks (Manuel Antonio and Marino Ballena), some breathtaking waterfalls, great rivers for rafting, and many other great natural adventure tours. With its stunning backdrop of lush green forests and palm trees, this beach is also a great place to bird watch or take a canopy tour of the surrounding locale. There are many other outdoor activities to take part in while in the Dominical area such as hiking, horseback riding, ATV tours, snorkeling trips and kayaking.

This is the Costa Rica you imagined.

Wonderful views. Superb, quiet location. Excellent accommodations. Exceptional concierge!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Villa Exotica. We spent 8 days there in April 2018. The pictures don't do the place justice. We loved the privacy and seclusion. Oscar, the concierge, was extremely accommodating with booking adventures and taking care of every detail of our stay with ease. All of the rooms were very nice and the kitchen was fully stocked - including a welcome basket of fruits. The kitchen is big enough to make meals if you don't always want to go out. The bedrooms all have fans and AC units. The whole house was comfortable even though it was 90 just about every day.

The pool area is very relaxing. We also used the grill a couple of times and it was spotless.

We recommend getting a private chef for at least one night. It was so nice to have food waiting for us upon our arrival.

You will definitely need a 4X4 to get up portions of the driveway, but most of the roads nearby are easily accessible by car. This place is only a few minutes from Dominical which is a great surfing village with neat shops and excellent food options. You can have Adobe car rental drop off and pick up your vehicle right at the house, which is very convenient!

Definitely take advantage of the services provided by Paradise Breezes. We did horseback riding, zip lining, surfing, in-room massages and a few tours. Having a concierge makes all of the difference. You will get set up with the best tours and best values - versus trying to figure it all out on your own if you are not familiar with the area.

Drive south to Uvita as well, there are a ton of cool places to explore and we only scratched the surface.

But some of our best moments and most relaxing times were spent just hanging out on the terrace taking in the breathtaking views of the Pacific. We had toucans and other birds entertain us for hours on end. It was tough to leave and come back to reality (aka Winter)!

A Perfect Home for an Unbelievable Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Overall, I'd describe this home as better than expected. A/C worked well throughout the home, furniture/beds were comfortable & in great condition, WiFi worked well enough to support all 8 of us (including 4 teens/children). The swimming pool & jacuzzi was cleaned each morning, along with the inside of the home. We honestly didn't NEED any special support or help coordinating activities from the Staff following our welcome/arrival, but I'm confident that Oscar & others would have accommodated any requests.

During our week, we were surrounded by toucans, iguana, and hummingbirds, every minute we sat on our porches/patio. While drinking coffee one morning, a troop of 40+ monkeys (Capuchin) paraded through the trees surrounding us for 30 minutes.

First time to the Dominical area, and our two families with recent comparable vacations in Hawaii, Belize, and several Caribbean islands) thouroughly enjoyed this vacation (arguably, "the best").

I would highly recommend having your own car at this property. Several beaches, restaurants, waterfalls, etc. are within a 15 minute drive, but nothing is safely "walkable". Our families had a great time taking surf lessons & renting boogie boards at Dominical beach, and HIGHLY recommend the 6 hour long "Eco-Chontales Waterfall ATV Tour" based in Dominical that heads out to The popular (and much more "touristy") town of Quepos adjacent to Manuel Antonio park is <40 minute drive from this home along the main, paved highway. We headed there twice during our week stay (once for a Park Tour & Beach day, and a return for a Catamaran Cruise), and all of us our glad that we chose the Paradise Breeze location as the base for our vacation.

Only advice to others is patience/awareness of the significant drive time from SJO (=3 "easy" hours with nice scenery... if all roads are open, and it's light out... once the sun sets- which occurs around 6:00 PM- travel progress will likely slow). One of the major highways was closed due to an accident on the day we returned to the airport- Google Maps/Waze on a cell phone was extremely helpful, and we found our way back to the airport in 4 hours on that long day. AT&T & Verizon based iPhones worked fine for us throughout Costa Rica with appropriate International Data plans activated.

Absolutely Beautiful Villa in An AMAZING setting!

  • 5 of 5

We went to Costa Rica for the first time with our entire family. We had a wonderful time! The Villa is exactly as pictured! It is beautiful and well maintained. The views out the windows are incredible and every night the sunset was breathtaking. We enjoyed the personal chef service. Christian and Chris were awesome and cooked exactly the meal that we ordered! We did the canopy zip line tour and it was so much fun! We went to the Alturas Wildlife Sanctuary. The staff was very knowledgeable and we saw many animals, as well as wild monkeys that came to visit! We did the horseback ride to Nauyaca Waterfalls. This is a must do! It is so beautiful and the ride is really fun! Make sure you bring gym shoes with you because Dominical is very mountainous and there are many uneven areas when doing any of the adventurous sports! I also brought bug spray with because of the threat of Zica. We did not see any mosquitos tho. Oscar was wonderful! He was extremely attentive to our needs and answered any questions we had, drove us to town and also helped us find a pharmacy after I took a tumble down some stairs. All the restaurants we went to were wonderful. We loved visiting the coffe shop in Dominical and enjoying the quiet of the river every morning.

I highly recommend a vacation to Costa Rica and staying at any of the villas in Paradise Breezes will be worth it. They are all beautiful and all have incrediable views! You can’t go wrong and Oscar is just wonderful and gives great attention to every aspect of your trip to make sure you have a wonderful time!

One word, Breathtaking!

The stay was amazing, Oscar was better than helpful. The views were awesome! Drive a 4X4. The beaches, food, and sites are mostly on the same road. Use Oscar for all of your bookings. Chef experience was great. Can't wait to go back!

What a wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We loved our experience at this property. We can't say enough about how peaceful and beautiful this location is for a true vacation. Everything was clean and the daily maid service kept it that way. We loved working with Oscar. He helped us plan and schedule activities and took such good care of us. In fact, when my daughter got stung by a sting ray at the beach, my husband called him and he turned on the hot tub so that the water would be really warm when we arrived (hot water really helps with the pain.) He took the time to show us a sloth and brought a large beetle over for us to see. We loved the activities he arranged for us, kayaking, zip lining and canyoning. Everything was organized well and we have no complaints! If we went back to Costa Rica, we would stay here again!

Pura Vida Style in Luxurious accommodations

  • 5 of 5

Paradise Breezes! What a place!! This is a beautiful well maintained property where we spent ten wonderful days with our family of four adults and two teenagers during Spring Break. We stayed in the luxurious Villa Exotica, a private large four bed room luxury villa with the most comfortable beds.

Villa Exotica has a high end well equipped kitchen which we used to cook several dinners in, and many of our breakfast meals. There is also a large gas grill on the pool patio where we grilled and relaxed by the infinity pool and hot tub. Groceries are a short trip down the road in Domical just outside the beach town center. There are many restaurants in the area to eat out, and we enjoyed dinner at Phat Noodle (a very funky outdoor place with a converted colorful RV as the kitchen), coffee and interesting delicious food choices at Café Mono Congo, milkshakes and cinnamon buns at Café Delicias, and the best take out pizza from Rio Lindo Hotel Pool Bar, all in Dominical.

During our stay we rented surf boards, and surfed every day at multiple beach locations depending on the wave heights. Most of the beaches are tree lined, and we purchased a hammock from a local vendor which mom spent the week relaxing in. A short drive from our villa we visited Nauyaca Waterfall, which was an amazing experience including the five mile hike from where we parked, and swimming in the natural pool at the bottom of the falls. During our hike to the falls we saw several monkeys, and two large red macaw parrots. We original planned to do the zip line and ATV tours, but our experience at the beaches and relaxing by the Infinity pool and hot tub, made it hard to do anything else.

The property is well landscaped, and right at our villa we saw several toucans, many bird species, and a sloth and her baby. Oscar (the property manager and our concierge during our stay) and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and you can tell from the day you meet them they take pride in what they do. Oscar even helped plan our trip communicating with us several times well before our arrival.

I would highly recommend this luxurious villa community to anyone planning to visit the beautiful Central Pacific region of Costa Rica, wanting to experience the Pura Vida life style. While there is much to do in the area, our time was spent mainly surfing, hanging at the beaches, and relaxing at the villa since it was so comfortable and peaceful.

Pura Vida!!

Dominical - the new hot spot along the central Pacific coast in Costa Rica. Paradise Breezes is just minutes away from zip-lining, surfing, white water rafting, deep sea fishing, diving, horse back ridding, and is surrounded by a stretch of countless beaches all along the coast, each unique in its own way with their own special qualities. At Playa Guapil, which is located directly in front of Paradise Breezes, the beach is a wide secluded beach lined with literally thousands of coconut palms. It will give you the feeling of true paradise, very private and very romantic! Playa Dominical, well known as one of the best surfing beaches in Costa Rica, with lifeguards, restaurants etc., and at Marino Ballena National Park you can swim or wade in the surf, view migrating whales and dolphins, stroll on golden sands, kayak through caves, enjoy a picnic under the the shade of countless coconut palms, or watch the pelicans and water fowl that inhabit the shorelines

Other Activities: Zip lining, whale watching (seasonal), White water rafting & more!!!!!
