  • Paradise! Felt like a tropical version of Lord of the Rings' Rivendale; exquisite

    "This place is magical! Surrounded by lush wild tropical landscape, you can feel how loved and treasured this tree farm truly is. The surrounding mountains and the cloud formations that dance in the sunlight and sweep through the valley below will at times leave you speechless and zen or they just might spike a wild cord in you and make you feel like your jumping straight out of The Jungle Book haha! The hikes are plenty and the community and caretakers or the farm are quiet and friendly. A true Garden of Eden... paradise on Earth. This house will make you fantasize about throwing a party, dancing under the stars and cooking up a feast of tropical abundance! With the Ocean in sight and killer sunsets and birds galore, it is a photographers dream come true. Myriads of plants and spectacular trees will have you reconnect with nature like no where else! The privacy of each quarter and the tasteful yet simple designs of each of them are ideal for family gatherings or reconnecting with old friends. Everything you need to cook up feast after feast is there and my mouth is watering as I write this and enjoy delightful flashbacks. This place will put a spell on you! There is rafting to be done nearby, as well as canyoning, rappelling, horse back riding, surfing, diving, zip lining and fishing. All within a half hour to 40 minute drive. Pick and chose from a half a dozen splendid beaches in the Dominical and Uvita areas. Enjoy! Blisssssss!"

  • Exceeded High Expectations

    "We spent a week with our children and grandchildren in this incredible villa which easily accommodated our group of 15. Maids, which came daily, kept the place spotless. We hired Tuto and Florie to cook suppers for us. The meals, which included hors d'oeuvres, salad, and desert, were excellent and cost about half as much as we would have paid in a restaurant. Usually enough food for lunch was left over. Our kids loved the large pool."

  • PURA VIDA......

    "To put this house & this vacation into words is quite difficult,,,,,there are no words to describe the beauty, serenity, calmness, magnificence, location, amenities, cleanliness....etc, etc.....I absolutely love this place.....Last year our entire family(6 of us) rented the middle house, and loved it, so this year we decided to go back. Unfortunately it was already rented...bummer, but Federico assured me that this house is just as nice. He was so, so correcto!!!! This year we had Jennifer arrange a chef to come in, cook us a typical Tico meal. It was wonderful & so fun having someone cook in our house. Jennifer also did the grocery shopping for that dinner which was nice. Jennifer also arranged for massages in our house & that was splendid. These 2 women who did the massages were fantastic.....everyone should do this for sure!!!! We visited waterfalls nearby, walked along the beach many, many times daily, swam & relaxed in the pool, and just enjoyed the beautiful sounds of this place. I also love Jennifer's dog, and I miss her so...We found some great new resturants like ?Porque No? and Roca Verde was super good, and the restaurant at Cuna del Angel was superb. Horseback riding on the beach was breath-taking, and the snorkeling at Cano island is also a must...I could go on & on, but I think you now understand what a vacation at this place would be like.....Oh, I forgot the surfing....that was a blast!!!!! See y'all soon...Pura Vida....."

  • 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!"

Dominical Travel Tips

A Unique Vacation Awaits When You Choose Dominical Beach Rentals

Just south of the Manuel Antonio National Park region in Puntarenas, Costa Rica lies the village of Dominical, a quiet spot that still has all the amenities you expect on your Costa Rican vacation. Dominical beach rentals are comfortable, cozy, and feel like home. Kick back and relax, plan ahead to see the nearby attractions, and most of all enjoy yourself.

River, Rainforest, and Ocean Combine at Dominical Beach Rentals

Immerse yourself in a world of beauty when you stay at Dominical resorts. Several beaches good for surfing or splashing are nearby and the Rio Baru joins with the ocean here, creating a unique ecosystem which is home to sea and land creatures alike. Keep your eyes open and your camera turned on because vacations in Costa Rica are wall-to-wall experiences.

Find Economical Accommodations at Dominical Resorts

Vacations in Costa Rica are a traveler’s dream: inexpensive yet with all the amenities you expect in the ideal vacation. Dominical resorts are luxurious but not extravagant which keeps prices down and more vacation dollars in your pocket. 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. Vacations in Costa Rica include kayak tours of the caves at Marino Ballena National Park or of the Hatillo Mangrove Swamp which are excellent ways to experience the area. Dominical resorts can also allow you to arrange a horseback tour of the Don Lulos Nauyaca Waterfalls. This tour is appropriate for all ages and equestrian skill levels.
