"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.
What makes this House unique
Built in 2015 and newly offered on the vacation rental market, La Joyita was designed with two people in mind. It is well very appointed and has breathtaking views from every room.

We stayed at this beautiful casita for 1 week in January. As many other reviews have suggested we did our sightseeing and eating out during the day but made sure that we were back for sunset. The time period between 5 pm and pitch dark is absolutely mesmerizing and you want to sit with a glass or your favorite beverage on the terrace overlooking the pool, the mountain and the ocean. The light changes every minute and I took about 1000 pictures trying to capture the magic. Our kayak tour of the mangroves (Pineapple Tours in Dominical) was probably our highlight! Everything about this house and its location is perfect. Adam Wood, was wonderful do deal with, he always responded immediately to all questions and answered with great detail and wonderful recommendations. Thank you Adam and thank you Gary!
Wonderful time in this beautiful home and location. Would come again!
Am very happy with vacation home and location. Wonderful time.
Off the beaten path
Definitely a different experience at this place. The views were amazing.
Fabulous, safe, beautiful, monkey's, tucan's, parrot's, Macaw's. The casita felt like a home, it was fully equipped with anything needed for a pleasant stay.
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.
Other popular activities include a guided tour of an animal sanctuary for rescued wildlife - monkeys, sloths, parrots, etc. Also, ziplines and horseback riding on the beach or to a jungle waterfall/pool where you may swim. We work with a friendly and knowledgeable concierge service to provide you with assistance in booking these and many other adventures.
