  • A little slice of heaven

    "Our stay at RocaMar Villas was one of the standout pleasures of our life. Situated in a small (7 units) gated compound, a very short walk to the beach and surf, this place is actively maintained, and very comfortable. As with any tropical housing, there are the routine issues to contend with (anything allowed to be hung and wet will develop mildew quickly, pay attention to the degree of cleanliness and the closure of all doors/windows to deny unwonted insect visitors, and geckos) any location this close to the equator. The nearby SuperSol mini-mart was able to fulfill most of our needs, though the drive to Jaco ($30USD roundtrip) every few weeks is likely needed. In addition there is a "good humor man," in addition to a man hawking eggs from his truck, and others similarly passing by, just outside the compound, selling fruits, vegetables, ceviche, and breads. The many hours we spent in the chaises under the umbrellas, dunking in the cooler (relatively) water swimming of the swimming pool is a delight. This quiet, private, serene facility is ideal for us with lots of opportunity to read, lounge, walk the beach, body surf, and generally unplug (though there is wi-fi and US TV available, if that's what you want) and unwind. Caveat: If you're looking for glitz, throbbing night life, para-sailing, or any of that sort of activity, they are available a short drive distant, but not locally. There are a few small-ish restaurants nearby (walking distance), and we had a LP gas fired two burner stove on our rooftop rancho, plus a charcoal grill. Speaking of the rancho - this too was a source of great serenity. We started off almost all our days drinking our morning coffees and watching the surfers, the natural beauty, of the view, the pace, the surrounding vegetation (almond trees, mango trees, and more). From our unit it was only a 20 minute beach walk to opportunities to see the monkeys and sloths indigenous to the area. As we said to each other many, many a morning: Thank you, God, for yet another day in paradise! There is a caretaker/maintenance person/font of wisdom and connections with the local area, general go-to person, living on site. The only reason I give it a 4 instead of 5 stars is that though part of the charm of the place is the seclusion, the isolation, they can be downsides as well. None-the-less, I give a hearty endorsement to RocaMar Villas for a once in a lifetime experience, and as proof, we are already making plans to return soon."

    "We loved our stay at the villa. We felt safe and enjoyed the beautiful views and sounds every day of our week stay. Early each morning, the birds awake and sing their song of the day which we recorded. We planned to compose music to their songs when we returned but their songs are so beautiful on their own. Staying at this villa, you do not feel like a tourist. The people of Dominical are friendly and accommodating. I purchased a new guitar in San Jose, played it for our stay and left it at the villa for future guests to strum. It is now the Serenity guitar of the villa. Enjoy as I did!"

  • An Intimate and Memorable Experience with the Real Costa Rica

    "We were looking forward to returning to the Uvita area again this year after visiting just south of there for a shorter time last year. So we booked 2 weeks at this wonderful home. If you want to get close to what Costa Rica is really like, the nature, the ocean views and sunsets, then this is a perfect spot to spend your time. The owners have left the property so very well equipped and there was nothing we could not find when needed over the 2 week period. The view from the patio is as good as anything we have ever seen and the daily visit by Toucans, Hummingbirds and many other colorful birds we can't name was thoroughly enjoyed. The house opens up into an indoor/outdoor structure that really makes you feel like you are in touch with your surroundings and the property itself is planted and maintained like a garden with a beautiful variety of local plants. You can tell the owners put so much into their design concepts when building this home and it is modern, comfortable and everything works perfectly. The area offers so much to do. Our highlights were the local beaches, waterfalls, walking the Whale Tail, multiple area farmer's markets and the trip to Cano Island Preserve for Snorkeling and lunch. The trip down the Sierpe River was hard to beat but the snorkeling was surprisingly good and topped off with a visit by a sea turtle as we wound up the day. Yes the road is a challenge that takes a couple of trips to get used to but with a 4x4 SUV you will soon find it to be nothing difficult to manage if you are at all comfortable off blacktop. Highly recommended and promises to be a very unique and memorable Costa Rican experience."
