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.
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
The communication with Gavin from start was very good. Few days/week before the arrival date Gavin emailed us directions. Although the photos are good, the house actually looks better in life. The views from both floors are stunning. The whole house is decorated in very relaxing color. The quality of finish is also very good. The villa is fully equipped also incl. washing machine and tumble drying. The whole house is fully air-conditioned. We haven’t seen any insects, flies or mosquitoes inside the house. As long as you keep the balcony doors closed at dark there will be no flying insects inside the house. No mosquito mesh above bed was needed and no bites experienced. The site is covered by security guard from 6am to 6pm, the security was very helpful and spoken fair English. The villa is located in estate with a number of similar villas. The villa is spacious, also the internet connection is good. Private parking next to villa. So summarizing about the house – it was actually perfect, it really was.
Getting to the villa from San Jose is via highway and standard car could be sufficient enough. I would say that you don’t need 4x4 car, it may be useful on the internal steep hill of the estate where the villa is located. The villa is located in a close distance from the highway. We were worried that it may be loud at night, but there is almost no traffic at night, so perfectly fine.
General safety in the area. Each day we were leaving the beach 30min after sunset, coming back/walking back to the villa at dark–looking at nearby football pitch with thousands of fireflies. We did shopping at Dominical at 8pm few times and no problems. We felt very safe in Dominical area anyway. The nearby beach is almost empty – during the day you can hide under the shade of trees overhanging above the beach-this means that we staid on the beach for almost all day without sunburns. The water in Ocean was the warmest I’ve ever experienced. There are lots of coconuts that you can just pick, peal and drink from. The beach is sandy with occasional rocks that you need to look for under water.
We visited local Osa Canopy & Tour Dolphin watching from local tour operator – Bahia Aventuras – both very good.
Overall I wish we could stay longer. If we go back to CR, we would love to stay again at this villa in Dominical, so hopefully it will be still available.
Me, My wife and two daughters spent five weeks in Costa Rica and started our our trip by staying a week in Dominical. This villa had everything we were looking for. The views from each room and the patio are amazing! The villa itself is decorated beautifully, the furnishing are very comfortable, and the house is clean. Gavin was helpful when needed and there were no problems during our stay, everything was taken care of before we arrived. Book a week here, you won't regret it!
The place is incredible! Rain forest just below the property with Iguanas, birds and white faced monkeys, just across the street from the beach. Gated community within walking distance to a waterfall, the beach, restaurants and a couple of very friendly neighbors.
Gavin gave excellent directions and it was an easy beautiful drive from San Jose. There is only one problem with the property.....the thought that someday you'll have to leave! The greatest vacation and sunsets ever!
The property was exactly as described. The home, in a gated community, is very comfortable for up to 5 adults. The kitchen is sufficient for everyday cooking. The best grocery is the big BM, 10-15 minutes away in Uvita. A small grill is available for grilling on patio. The pictures don't give the real view. Some of the best sunsets on the ocean. Lots of wild life that passes thru the trees below. The location in Dominical is ideal for day trips. Plenty of good restaurant choices. A car with 4 wheel drive is necessary in this area. Property management was quick to respond to needs and problems. There are several beaches that you can drive to but use caution swimming as the rip tides are dangerous on this side of the country. But if you surf, it's ideal. I would highly recommend this property and look forward to a return in the future.
The villa was just as promised in the description and pictures. It is very clean and well maintained & Gavin reacts very quickly if there is any problem. The villa is a 3 hour drive from the San Jose Airport but well worth the drive. We took the coastal route and the roads were very good. Recommend a GPS - worth the cost. Dominical is a small but quaint village and the area has many fine restaurants with excellent service, and all within a two to fifteen minute drive from the villa. PorQueNo?, Cuna Del Angel, and Villas Alturas are three restaurants I recommend highly for both the food, which was great and the view, which was extraordinary. While the beaches in the area are great, you'll have to take the half hour drive to Quepos if you want to have a Zip Line or Jet Ski experience. Worth the drive and the cost. Just make sure you get back to the villa at sunset to enjoy a glass of wine on the deck as you watch the sun go down!
