Incredible view. Down to earth owners!

  • 4 of 5

Great place to call home for our first week vacation. We arrived at night and were greeted by Storm and Amy. Very nice people and made us feel at home. The next morning we were greeted by the amazing view of mountains,ocean and beach views not to mention the spacious outdoor patio and pool. It was truly a wow factor. Fresh coffee and pineapple was a nice treat. We loved spending time on the mountain side balcony patio, BBQ, pool, Beach view with surfers what else can you ask for. Jolly Rogers is a must do. Amy and her staff made us feel like family. The food is good and plenty so go hungry and thirsty. Prices are below average for what lands on your plate. The burgers and wings are massive and the pirate bar theme makes you forget about calories. Thank you Storm and Amy we will definitely be back Pura Vida my friends! Derek and family.

What a magical view!

  • 4 of 5

We were apprehensive because of the challening drive up to the house....and it was indeed!...gravel road, lots of bone-rattling potholes, and a four-wheel drive incline! BUT SO WORTH IT FOR THE VIEW!

House is in a gated community of similar homes clustered close together but they are tiered, angled and landscaped to give each a very private feeling. We were only one couple but house could easily accomodate 2 couples ( with 2 king size beds and spacious baths with each) or a family with kids. Good A/C units in each room. Comfy beds and plenty of nice towels. Except for making coffe and tea in the morning, we did not cook, but kitchen looked to be adequately stocked.

Beautiful deserted beach just down from the house...we drove and parked beachside.....be sure to check out the waterfall and swimming hole closeby too. We fell in love with the funky village of Dominical just up the road...a hippy/dippy mix of surf shops, bars and restaurants ...great breakfast at Tortilla Flats and good Thai at Phat Noodle.

Good communication with home owner both before and during our stay.......

Best memory: sitting under our own charming palapa, drink in hand, watching the colorful paragliders sailing down from the mountain to the beach below! Pura Vida indeed!

Spectacular View in Peaceful Setting

  • 4 of 5

The view from the terrace is so spectacular. We loved sitting out there with coffee in the morning and cocktails in the evening. It is a wonderful place for spotting all kinds of birds. The location is easily accessible from the main highway (though the first few times up the mountain are a little intimidating). It is very near Dominical and its restaurants though do yourself a favor and venture further south (Ojochal has great restaurants and the beaches of Uvita and Ballena are wonderful). Two minor drawbacks - the wi-fi is woefully slow or nonexistent (but if you are coming here for the wi-fi, you are coming for the wrong reason and will miss what this place is really about). Secondly, the owners offered to book activities for us but were not very responsive. I recommend you make your own arrangements which is easy to do.

Suprised and Delighted

  • 5 of 5

After a long trip to Boston for my first visit to CR I was blessed with having had the good fortune of staying at this lovely hillside Villa overlooking the coastline Just a few minutes south of Domical. The location is perfect and the this two story villa is loaded with all the modern amenities and conveniences that one would expect of a five star resort. As a hotel operator of the Fairmont Copley in Boston I have high expectations when traveling to new locations. As it turns out the owners of this villa also are restaurant and bar operators. Be sure to visit the Jolly roger when you come to Dominical. Its a sure bet!

Map

Car: recommended

Dominical is a funky little surfing and fishing town 30 minutes south of Manuel Antonio. I have traveled extensively throughout Costa Rica and when I visited the Dominical area I immediately knew that this was the spot for me. I hope it will be for you too!
