Beautiful stay in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This "home away from home" was awesome! Well maintained, beautiful view, private patio and pool - perfect for our family of four. Definitely recommend renting a four wheel drive not only for the villa but for enjoying the surrounding areas. Storm and Amy were wonderful hosts and provided tons of great services including booking some tours for us and recommending places to visit and to eat. The hospitality and amenities were just what we were looking for on our long weekend away.

Great house with great location lots to do nearby.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent vacation house with great view. Lots of beaches and activities nearby along with great restaurants all within 20-30 min drive of the house. Owners Storm and Amy helped getting us info on the area and activities to do. There is also a awesome swimming hole with a waterfall within walking distance of the house. Had a great time in this laid back relaxed community that's very welcoming and friendly. Can't wait to revisit this area of Costa Rica.

Absolutely breath-taking!!

  • 5 of 5

The views from the villa were amazing. The views in real life were much better than pictures can even explain. Storm greeted us shortly after our arrival. He was very welcoming. He gave us some great ideas for excursions. I highly recommend the ATV tour, zip-lining and the canoe tour. All were totally worth it. We also visited Storms bar, Jolly Roger's. Great food and awesome staff. Wayne was so nice! I loved his dog Maggie :-)

I would return to stay at this villa for sure. Having coffee everything morning with these views is something that I could get used to. Villa was spacious, clean and was very private... and the mini pool was perfect. Thanks Storm, we hope to return again soon.

This is an amazing property. The pictures do not do it justice. It is a two story unit with the bedrooms down and the living space and pool up. You are surrounded by views of the Pacific ocean. Storm and Amy were great hosts and very helpful from the beginning planning stages of our trip to the end of our stay. We loved Dominical and did most of our travel and sightseeing from there--ATV ride in Uvita, horseback ride to Nauyaca Falls, surf lessons, mangrove kayak tour to name a few. We would come back to this property in a heartbeat and would recommend it to anyone traveling to Costa Rica. It is a magical place!

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!
