About the property

Next To Waterfall And Swimming Hole And Walking Distance To The Beach

This comfortable home next to an amazing waterfall/ swimming hole is just a couple blocks from the beach. A real excellent group or family value. Also located close to all the shopping and restaurants in the town of Playa Dominical but in a private location. This 2 story home has one large kitchen downstairs and one small kitchen upstairs with three air conditioned bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, full laundry room and outdoor shower by the pool. Sleeping consists of, 2 queen beds, 1 full bed, 1 single bed, and 2 full size futons. Nestled in the tropical rain forest with a blue water ocean view and sunsets in part of the year, this is in the perfect location to enjoy all the amenities of the area but be conveniently very close to home. Enjoy the sounds of the river passing by just below as you take the sun by the pool! This area is known for its concentration of birds, monkeys and all the wildlife Costa Rica has to offer. A caretaker lives in a private house on the property for added security.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

I just wish it were a little closer to San Jose, but we may go back anyway. It's a large immaculately kept house on a forested hilltop, with live-in caretaker on the grounds (who was very responsive when we called), well-equipped kitchen, and a well-maintained pool off the back porch. The landscaping (pineapples on one side!) helped create a relaxing atmosphere, as did the view over the forest to the sea, and even the gravel drive through the village to get there. Technically walkable to the beach, but we always drove. The beaches here are very nice, very flat and shallow with brown sand. Yes, lots of surfing, but lots of places safe for a 4 year old. Enjoyed our yard (with pool-side iguana), our deck (no monkeys that we ever saw :-(, the morning birdsong, the constantly patrolling vultures, our little neighboring namesake waterfall, our hikes in Corcovado (90 minutes by boat from neighboring Uvita) and Manuel Antonio (yes, small and over-commercialized, but worth the visit), the Alturas wildlife rescue facility, and a pleasant array of local restaurants, both high- and low-end. And the sunsets. And the beaches. Everyone everywhere was friendly and helpful. Really just what we needed, and the trips to and from San Jose are pretty scenic, too.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the waterfall house with 8 adults and 2 babies. It was perfect for us. We had lots of space and enjoyed the pool. We felt safe. The house is close to he little surfer town of Dominical which is amazing. We went on a couple of tours (catamaran and zip lining) which were excellent. Minor was a great help and arranged our shuttles. You will need a car to get around. I would for sure stay here again.

A Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation at Waterfall House. It was easy, enough space with living rooms both upstairs and downstairs, convenient, air conditioned, and clean. I liked being able to walk to Dominicalito Beach and the waterfall. Heard Howler monkeys in the morning. A blue morpho butterfly and toucans visited daily. A sloth hung out at a nearby tree one day. The people in Dominicalito were very friendly. It is a short ride to Dominical or Uvita to change money and get groceries as well as many restaurants, surfing, snorkeling, diving, kayaking. The only down side was the couch beds were not that comfortable, but okay. It was private and quiet. The pool and outdoor shower were very nice after hot rides or walks back to the house.

Beautiful, spacious home with an on-site caretaker who is very helpful should you need anything. The Manager, Minor is also very helpful. Comfortable furniture and a well equipped kitchen made for a very nice stay. The pool temperature was perfect and there were great views of the sunsets from the deck.

House was nice and great little pool with lots of sun

  • 4 of 5

First , I have to say Minor was very friendly and accommodating.

I had one very big disappointment that was beyond the control of the management.... there was No waterfall. It had been so dry that the waterfall was only a trickle. Unfortunately , that was one of the main reasons I chose the property. But we did hike to the Big waterfall (Nauyaca)which made up for it. . The house is very spacious the beds comfortable. Nice big kitchen with fairly good equipment but no staples ( bring your own salt sugar etc.) . A/C was in Bedroom and general living area on the ground floor. We had some minor problems with a/c which were fixed quickly. Considering we were there when the temps were in the 90s we needed it and it worked well

The Wi Fi was good even on deck outside the home. View of sunsets from balcony great! Enjoyable stay.
