Recent Dominical reviews

  • Breathtaking View

    "I am normally not one to write reviews however we recently stayed at Bosque en el Cielo and had an absolutely amazing experience. The pictures of this home do not do it justice. We enjoyed many sunset nights in the pool and enjoyed listening to the many sounds of the jungle. We were showed where the home was located and found it a little tricky to find the next time. A 4-wheel drive car is a must and hopefully you know how to drive a standard. Lynne was very easy to work with an very accommodating. This was the best vacation we have ever been on. Thanks!!!!!"

  • Perfect

    "Loved our two week stay at our bungalow. Waking up to the chatter of howler monkeys, watching toucans fly from tree to tree, smelling the ylang ylang trees in the afternoon and having a perfect view throughout the day makes for a grand vacation. The pool was ideal. Diane and Peter were wonderful hosts, helpful and available when needed but never intrusive."

  • Awesome!!! Didn't want to leave!

    "We spent a week at Casa Mar Y Luna in late August and had a fantastic time. The house is perfectly located on a hill with spectacular views of the breaking waves along the coastline below. The house had lots of space for the 7 people in our group, with the outside deck being our favorite spot to hang out. Watching the sunset while sipping a cold drink as you cool off in the vanishing edge pool was the best way to end the day. Being surrounded by trees brought all of the wildlife right up to the house, with howler monkeys, sloths, toucans and vultures making daily visits. The house location was close to beaches, waterfalls, restaurants, sightseeing, and anything else you'd want to do in Costa Rica. The hostess, Tiffany, made the whole place even more spectacular. Her joyful personality and fantastic knowledge of all things Costa Rica were a real benefit to the property. And she knows her way around a kitchen, too. She cooked us a few delicious local meals as part of our reservation. We would definitely recommend this as an awesome rental property."

  • 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!"
