Brand New ocean view villa with a beautiful bay view and a 7 minute walk to Dominicalito beach. You can hear the ocean from this mountain-side villa and enjoy the breeze from aloft! The Costa Rican wildlife is abundant, especially in the morning when the birds are singing. It is not uncommon to spot a tucan or other wildlife while sitting under the palapa next to your private pool.
Each bedroom (located on the lower level) has a queen size bed , a balcony and it's own bathroom with his/her sinks (one bathroom has a shower/tub and the other just a shower). The laundry room and a small living area is also on the lower level. The upper level consists of the kitchen, dining/living area and half bath...and don't forget the views, views, views! The wrap-around balcony and patio (complete with pool) is right outside the sliding doors on the upper level.
WiFi is available!!
Maid service is once a week and included with your stay.
Also, if you are renting a vehicle, it is advised that you rent a 4WD. The villa sits on a steep hill and most of the roads off the main highway are unpaved. Therefore, a 4WD would be best.

About Brittany Hudson
We are a busy family with four kids. We live in a Northwest suburb of Chicago. My husband and I work in property management for our family company. We are very proud of all of our properties but this one is our 'baby'. Of course, the kids love it, too! We bought it as an investment property and hope to use it as our second home some day. We vacation there when we can with the kids or without. We hope to make many memories at our little Villa Vista Encantada(villa with the enchanted view)!
Brittany Hudson purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Brittany Hudson chose Dominical
We chose Dominical after looking into Mexico, Belize and down the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica because of the 'surf' town and affordability. It really reminded me of Lahaina, Maui 30 years ago. It is very 'untouched'. You won't find a McDonald's in Dominical...at least not yet.
What makes this Villa unique
You can walk to Dominicalito beach in about 7 minutes and also explore the area and walk to one of the local 'swimming pools'(it's a small waterfall/pool nearby). Our management company, Costa del Sol, is located right down the road from Canto del Mar. Dave or Deb will be happy to make your reservation\ and can also help with rental cars, excursions, and tours. We love to wake up to our wonderful view and hang out on the patio in the morning. We have our coffee and watch the birds while the younger ones swim. We eat breakfast at the villa or in town and usually discuss what we are going to do for the day. Some of our favorite things to do are Nauyaca Falls(kid friendly horseback ride), whale watching/snorkel tour, surfing, boogie boarding, exploring the many beaches, going to Manuel Antonio for the day, and finding great places to eat dinner!

Stay a while longer...
Stick around and get to learn the rythems of this area. Never dull, always mysterious and new experiences abound.
The Villa has all you need and more. Brittany is very easy to communicate with and Tokia management are quick to respond. Can't praise Olmer the concierge enough.
Have a rewarding time here surrounded by howlers, chattering monkeys and a large variety of gorgeous birds. Walk the trail and see the amazing Azure winged butterfly, fly right past you.
Pura Vida, indeed.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review Ahmed. I hope that you will stay a third time. ;)
I'm also happy to hear how helpful Olmer was and that things are running smoothly.
Amazing views and well-equipped kitchen
Property is a 5 minute drive from Dominical up a very steep gravel road (4WD required). House is comfortable and well-equipped with a nice view of the ocean and beach. View is slightly obstructed by trees, TV and dish washer didn’t work, but overall very positive stay.
Great getaway for me and my kids!
Stayed here with my kids and their friends (high school and college age) and loved it! It was the perfect location. Close to so many beaches and restaurants. The kids loved that there was a patio with a private pool to relax around and come back to after being down by the beach or out on an excursion. And, we took full advantage of the well equipped kitchen. We took turns cooking breakfast, and dinners. And, would hang out and play games at night. The view was gorgeous and I loved the bird watching in the morning while I was having my coffee. We saw lots of tucans and even saw howler monkeys right by the villa one afternoon. We loved it and will be back for more adventures in the near future!!
What a View! Beatiful and all the amenities you need, including a pool!
This villa was perfect for my daughter (15 years)and I. We loved doing activities during the day and coming back to the beautiful villa for a dip in the pool and rest or freshin up for dinner. What a wonderful place to stay while visiting the areas: Dominical, Manuel Antonio, Uvita, and Ojochal. It was wonderful! We will be back! :)
Total experience=5 stars.
We could have easily stayed longer.
Great staff, especially Raul. He is mister everything.
This house is perfect for two couples vacationing together. Lots of upstairs living space... both indoors and on the balcony with a gorgeous view. And two bedrooms, two bathrooms and laundry room downstairs. The only slight negative is that the knives in the kitchen are NOT sharp! Ha! We like to cook in our evening meal, but if you dine out that is no problem. Raul, the manager was super. We stayed 10 days and loved every minute...except when we needed to slice tomatoes!
Thank you so much for your review Susie. I guess I need to either buy a knife sharpener or get new knives. ;) I know you are a returning guest so I will have my management company look into it. Or, maybe, I will try to bring some down with me next month.
Explore the many beaches near us like Dominical, Dominicalito, Playa Hermosa, Playa Ballena (Ballena National Park),Playa Ventanas and many more! 10 minute drive to zip lining, 25 minute drive to Nauyaca Falls (this is a great horseback tour! Kid friendly! and includes breakfast and lunch). Manuel Antonio National Park and beaches are only 45 minutes away and a great place to visit for the day. The town of Dominical offers some great little restaurants and shopping and is known for great surfing for both beginners and pros. Also, there are nearby grocery stores, banks and gas stations. There are plenty of sports and activities around to keep you busy or you can just relax at the villa.
