"La Joyita", the Perfect Couples' Retreat
About Gary Anderson
After vacationing in Costa Rica many times, about 10 years ago my wife and I decided this was the perfect place to retire. We never tire of the beauty and wildlife here, not to mention the gracious and welcoming people.
Gary Anderson purchased this House in 2015
Why Gary Anderson chose Dominicalito
We have seen many parts of Costa Rica and we believe this area is special. The mountains come right down to the ocean like nowhere else in Central America. The views are spectacular and the consistent tropical breezes are wonderful.

Costa Rica Getaway
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at LaJoyita. It is a great size for 2 people, private and well equipped . The views are amazing, the neighborhood quiet, and the bird watching excellent. Having a full kitchen was great - spending the day out exploring, and arriving back for sunset cocktails and a grilled dinner - priceless. We look forward to a repeat visit!
Views alone are worth it. Wonderful jungle around us. Wildlife sounds are amazing. Very nice house, stocked well with items needed to cook ourselves. Nice town nearby with plenty of food options.
Nothing but wonderful
Great, amazing place. Everything you need for a relaxing vacation and worry free place to settle in can be found here. The views are spectacular. If we weren’t around outside at the beaches and excursions, we could be found living on the outdoor deck. We will be back.
Paradise, Breathtaking, Heaven!!!
My goal coming to Southern Costa Rica was probably most different from other’s. Although I have been to CR many times this one was an exceptionally monumental one for me....My 23yr old daughter passed in July who was my only child and my angel. I’ve been struggling with this atrocity since her passing and knew I needed to get away and start the healing process somewhere on this earth. I wanted to come back to Costa Rica because I always felt that this is my happy and safe place. When I started exploring on VRBO I ran across La Joyita a most amazing and incredibly beautiful casita in the rain forest of Dominical. I wanted the amenities of the states, AC, infinity pool, kitchen etc...Out of all the villas and casitas in Costa Rica I was so fortunate and happy that I found this wonderful property. The home is impeccably clean and felt so so relaxed and comfortable being there. My healing process began automatically every morning and night hearing all the birds indigenous to Dominical. I would hear the Howler Monkeys almost every morning. Incredible! Gary and his wife were so so gracious and accommodating...Truly magical wonderful people. I’m home in the states now continuing my journey. I would come back every year without a doubt because of my incredible experience at La Joyita. Thank you so so much for opening up your home to me!!
Casita was perfect. Provided everything you would need for the stay. Very clean.
Had a great time. Lots of wildlife in the area. Must have a 4x4 to get to the property. Beautiful plants.
Great place to stay. Beautiful view!
