How to get to Dominical: Two commuter airlines, Nature Air and Sansa, leave from San Jose, Liberia and other towns in Costa Rica to either the Quepos Airport which is about 1 hour North of Dominical or to Palmar Sur which is about 40 minutes South of Dominical.

The drive from San Jose is 3 ½ to 4 hours drive depending on the route. The one route goes along the cost and the other is more of a mountain trip. Its 3 ½ hours if taking the mountain road through San Isidro de General. The coastal route through Jaco and Quepos is 4 hours.

Please feel free to email me or call for more information. Also please take a look at my site dedicated to the Villa and let me know if you have any further questions as I will be glad to answer any questions or help out in any way possible.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very nice place, we had a wonderful time and really enjoyed the villa. Its the best location of all the villas as its close to the ocean and not too high up the hill so you dont need a 4X4.



You can hear the ocean and sea breese but still have the privacy and security you need.



I would go back again at a moments notice

Great property in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Family of four with 2 dogs and we loved this place. Plenty of space for our family and dogs and the pictures do the place justice. You are looking at the ocean from every room. You're not beach front but it's just across the street. There's also an amazing swimming hole with a small waterfall just up the road, it even has a tarzan swing for your kids.

Unpaved dirt road getting onto the gated property, 4x4 would be best for the rainy days.

Gavin was very prompt in all communications as well.

Would highly recommend this place and would definitely stay here again.

Great stay with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Canto del Mar Villa #4 for 4 nights during Easter holidays and loved every day here. The communication with Gavin was fast and easy from the very beginning of the booking process. We were 2 adults but the place is very spacious and could comfortably sleep an entire family or group of friends. Very bright, clean with a fully equipped US size and style kitchen. The view from the terrace was our favourite part of the entire stay and we will be missing waking up to the sound of the waves and watching the incredible sunset from the villa.

It's a gated villa community and there's a guard at the entrance ramp to let you in/out during the day. I would recommend having a car not because of this property's uphill location but because of the entire region which in my opinion is not very pedestrian friendly, unless you want to walk with a flashlight at the side of the highway which we saw some people do but did not look safe to me.

That said, the only 2 things we thought needed improvement are 1) the basic kitchen supplies like coffee filters, some salt, sugar, oil and maybe basic spices - since there are already all the utensils in the wonderfully equipped kitchen having to buy all that for a 4 night stay felt unnecessary and we feel bad about food and supplies waste.

2) would be dirt road up the hill leading to the villas. Having driven across Costa Rica before arriving here we realized dirt roads are nothing new and some of them are pretty flat and even. This one, on the other hand, was really bad in my opinion. We had a 4x4 car and I couldn't believe this was the access to the villas. It is only a few hundred meters uphill but the big rocks and holes every step of the way were hard to imagine. It's probably something that all the owners should agree about but it's a pity such wonderful properties have an official access this bad.

All in all, we are giving this property 5 stars and would return anytime.

Dominical Villa

  • 4 of 5

The Villa had a great view, nice size with both bedrooms downstairs and was well secured. A/C worked great. Bathrooms downstairs both need some work, especially the tub side.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house! It was much more beautiful in real life than in the photos. The view and sunset were amazing! Great internet connection, fully stocked house with more than enough towels and sheets. Great communication with the owner. Loved the waterfall around the corner (Posa Azul) and Playa Dominicalito. Would have loved to stay longer.
