Recent Dominical property reviews

  • Just what we were looking for!

    "This Villa was just what we were looking for and on arrival the first thing we noticed was pictures of this Villa don’t do it justice. The property is just awesome with mouth opening views of the Ocean and jungle. We saw plenty of birds and wildlife on the property and heard the monkeys but didn’t manage to see them. The Villa is close to Dominical where there are grocery stores, bars and plenty of good restaurants. The local Ticos are very friendly and helpful people and make you feel right at home We did some excursions and the favorite was the horse ride to the waterfall which was great adventure and great value. Awesome villa and vacation we will be back next year."

  • Great view! Great location!

    "We had a great stay at Olas Hermosa. The view is fabulous and the location is central to quite a few restaurants and sights. We had a car but ended up walking to Dominical, the peninsula and the waterfall as well as walking many many times on the beach. Dave helped us get a fishing trip set up for a low rate with some other folks and helped us find lots of fun stuff to do! Manuel Antonio and Quepos, San Isidro are all very close if you have a car. A GPS is a must in Costa Rica but the driving is easy and the studio has covered parking in a gated area so no worries! The studio had a great kitchen and was very comfortable and roomy. All the comforts of home that you need, and Dave downstairs if you need something else! We had fun chatting with him and getting to know his area! We will definitely come back next year!"

  • Costa Rican Getaway

    "I never thought I'd go to Costa Rica but when the opportunity presented itself, we ended up in this beautiful hill-top house overlooking the Pacific Ocean. What a wonderful week we had! The house is bigger than it looks in these photos. It's beautiful, comfortable, and convenient to so many things to see and do. Two large bedrooms, two large master bathrooms, a big kitchen, and lots of space. The washer/dryer came in handy, too! The caretaker family is wonderful and so helpful. Lots of great restaurants nearby but we also enjoyed making our own meals, and sitting on the veranda in the evenings. Lots of pretty beaches for exploring during the day, and an easy drive to sights like Manuel Antonio National Park. It was the most relaxing vacation I've had in a long time. I would definitely recommend and definitely hope to return some day!"

  • Wonderful vacation home!

    "We spent a wonderful month at Villa Mountain Serenity and really could have spent an additional month if time had permitted. The property is very comfortable, in a great location, and was really perfect for us. Mornings always started early with coffee at poolside, binoculars in hand for bird watching, and listening to the lovely toucans who were ever-present in the mornings and early evenings. After many hot and humid day trips, we returned to the house to enjoy the mountain breezes, swim, prepare dinner on the grill, and pore over the home's numerous Costa Rican natural history books in search of something we'd seen that day. It really was the perfect retreat. Do not miss the Uvita Farmer's Market on Saturday. Although quite small, they offer wonderful tamales, breads, fruits and veggies either not available or far fresher than those found in the supermarkets, eggs, homemade plantain chips, spices, artisan cheeses, and hand crafts. Be sure to go early as they run out of the popular items. The only disappointing purchase was a bag of shrimp that turned out to be bland and mushy. The grocery stores in the area (Dominical and Uvita) are fine for meat, dairy, rustic baguettes, and most other items, albeit expensive, but the fresh produce is really lacking. San Isidro is a larger town and offers a better selection. They also have a farmer's market on Thursday(?) but we couldn't find it. The best fruit stands are found along the road from Dominical to San Isidro. Be warned, this road is quite dangerous with trucks drifting into the oncoming lane on turns. We saw several really horrible accidents and always proceeded very slowly around blind corners. Other food finds, Cafe Delicias (sp?) in Dominical sells croissants that are quite good, but cannot comment on the restaurant food as we didn't try it. Although we mainly cooked at home, our favorite restaurants were Villa Leonor in Ojochal (hearty food, beautiful beach and setting), Porque No?, Roadshack Deli, and Sabor Espanol. We found La Fogata Pizzeria disappointing when we ordered dishes other than pizza. I'd like to spend my last allowed characters in this review to thank Massi, Vilma, and all of the wonderful staff from Costa Ballena Management who made our stay at VMS so comfortable. Massi responded very quickly and professionally to all issues that arose and we only regret not getting the chance to meet him. We would return to VMS in a heartbeat, and hopefully will!"

Vacations in Costa Rica are a traveler’s dream: inexpensive yet with all the amenities you expect in the ideal vacation.

Off the beaten path you can find Dominical beach rentals nestled in the rainforest or overlooking ocean vistas which are incredibly economical even during peak seasons.

Vacations in Costa Rica Offer Unique Day Trip Opportunities

Because the area has river, rainforest, and ocean habitats, Dominical beach rentals are the ideal starting points for a variety of fun and unusual activities.
