OCEANFRONT Romantic Hideaway !!!! Just read the reviews !!
I know this is going to sound RIDICULOUS...........but just read the (20 +) 5 STAR REVIEWS..........all in the last 12 months.....THEY TELL IT ALL.................if you want to hear from me feel free to read my description................EVERYONE LOVES THIS PLACE......THERE IS NOTHING LIKE IT !!!!!!
Private oceanfront tranquil luxury villa with vaulted ceiling, indoor/outdoor great room and a fully equipped kitchen (Roughly 900+ sq ft total ). If you want to be ON THE BEACH in an amazing spot look no further……..… this is the place for you!!!
There is nothing similar to this in the area...an Oceanfront property surrounded by rain forest (3 sides). This space is less than 20 feet to the beach…yes less than 20 feet (from your deck)...... to a pristine sand and palm filled beach that is just 15 minutes by foot (via the beach) or 2 minutes by car from downtown Dominical. Besides the owner, your nearest neighbors to the property are more than 300 ft away (think football field) on either side. Wake up and relax hearing/seeing the waves crash from your memory foam queen bed with Egyptian combed cotton sheets .....the ocean literally just steps away.
A few of the amenities: outdoor hot / cold soaking tub (with plenty of room for two), outside hot / cold beach shower / foot wash, landscaped grounds, lawn furniture, boogie boards, umbrellas, and locally sourced handmade soap. Tech items include: use of local cellular phone (you pay minutes), fast WiFi (6 Mbps internet service), SONOS sound system, ultra quiet A/C, (2) ceiling fans, and 50" LED TV…….
Like towels!?!?!??!?!?!? the villa comes with (2) over sized beach towels (4) bath towels, (4) hand towels (6) wash cloths, (2) bath robes....all 100% Cotton.
Enjoy the wildlife / bird watching right from your deck. The property has many birds, wildlife, butterflies, iguanas (partially trained to eat out of your hand by my property manager.....crazy but true), and an amazing "tiger heron" who hunts on the property most every evening.
Our tranquil stretch of beach has very few people using it due to access issues for the general public......which we do not have since we are located directly on the beach. I never thought to mention this......THERE ARE NO VENDORS TRYING TO SELL YOU ANYTHING on the Beach in front of the villa.. You can quietly enjoy the tranquil environment.....and just relax!!!!!!
This modern luxury villa was built with PRIVACY in mind. You have your own private entrance to both the villa and the beach, fenced private grounds with deck, and seperate covered grilling area (all for your exclusive use). We placed landscaping so you see nothing except native plants and the ocean from your getaway.
Maid service is available upon request (minimal additional fee if you choose the service). Guests staying 1 week or more get one midweek (1 hour for each week booked) clean by maid at NO CHARGE !!!
When it comes to activities Dominical is the place to be. Within 1 - 20 minutes of the villa there are ZIP lines, surfing, kayaking, yoga studios, horseback riding, waterfalls, hiking tours, beautiful beaches, (not nicer than ours of course), golf course (just 30 minutes) and much more all within minutes from the residence.
PLEASE do not forget we are ON THE BEACH !!!! ....you can wake up with your coffee and walk 20 ft....YES 20 ft and you are ON THE BEACH !!!!!! Read the reviews....its TRUE !
Bring your bathing suit....and your significant other !!!!
Enjoy the (25 +) "5 Star" REVIEWS all of which are under 12 months old !!!! The REVIEWS are also from almost EVERY month of the year during both the "High Season" and "Green Season"

Why Whit chose Dominical
Oceanfront to me is just one thing.....on the beach.....and this is EXACTLY what this is....20 steps from the beach. The property is very unique and regardless as to what other people say about their property there is no other property in the Dominical area that offers 20 step beach access along with a safe and swimable beach.
What makes this House unique
One of the great things about Dominical is that it is still a lazy beach town. Prices for meals and services are typically reasonable and the best part is most services and activities do not require reservations and can be enjoyed by everyone. We also have a much bigger town "Uvita" just 15 minutes to the South (over 35 restaurants) which offers pretty much anything you need at a reasonable price. ALL PHOTOS WERE TAKEN ON THE PROPERTY.........NO EXCEPTIONS....no telephoto lense or shots from other properties....we do not need to deceive you !!!!

Very comfortable in a beautiful setting!
Practically the only ones on this beautiful beach. A 10 minute walk to Dominical or a 15 minute drive to Uvita. But the 30 seconds it took from bed to beach was the best part.
This place is everything that has been said in the other reviews and then some! We plan to return here every year, but concerned that if word gets out, we won't be able to. This place is easy to find, close to everything, yet so private. You can't get any closer to a private beach than this! This is THE perfect get-away for two. The best restaurants are nearby or go to the grocery store and cook. The kitchen has everything you need and a grill is just outside on your patio. Whit was an awesome owner/host. Tell him what you want and he will steer you in that direction. Our best Air B&B experience yet (and they have all been awesome). We will be back and we will stay longer.
wow. this place. We had an awesome stay here!!! What a piece of heaven!
The welcome. After a looong travel day from Toronto, and arriving late in the evening (thanks Whit for accommodating our arrival time!) we were welcomed by Whit with wine, a couple of beers and coffee for the next morning. This touch was just the first of many that make Whit such a wonderful host.
Whit also takes time to sit down with you and chat about what you want to do, where to eat and has great recommendations and advice.
The bed. We were pretty tired when we got there, and the bed was so comfortable!
The beach. It is unbelievable. Perfect sand, fun crabs, great waves! and you really can't get closer. We miss the sound of the ocean! We wished we had a couple of extra days just to spend at the beach and at Bali Hai.
We absolutely loved it here. The geckos that greeted us in the morning, and said goodnight when we turned off the lights :) the location - perfect for getting to all the things we wanted to do, the early morning coffee on the beach, the privacy, the birds, the "magic door", the cleanliness.
Thanks Whit for an absolutely perfect place to celebrate our 10 year anniversary.
Perfect! Very comfortable. Whit is a great host. We did the beach, ate verywell, and did lots of touring. Renting a car a must, esp 4WD.
So great meeting you too.. .I assume that the reason you stated "esp 4 WD" on the need for renting a car being important was for the activities.....you chose.....obviously it is not necessary to get around my property. Have a safe trip !
We, my husband and I, had a lovely time at Whit's rental propertyIt is the perfect place
My husband and I loved Whit's rental property. In fact it was probably the best place we stayed in our 10 days in Costa Rica. It was quiet, except for the sound of the ocean, well cared for. and yes, right on the beach which was completed deserted most of the time. Whit was the perfect host giving privacy but available for information and suggestions for new comers like ourselves. At his suggestion we took a tour of the Mangroves further south and it was teriffic. He knows where to shop and which are the best restaurants in the area. We feel lucky to have found Bali Hi and would highly recommend it
So happy you enjoyed your stay.......Just love the tranquility of the place. Come visit again soon !
Extremely Rare Beach Location
What can you say about staying at a beautiful beach location in Dominical Costa Rica besides "wow"!! Direct beach access is very rare in this part of Costa Rica, I know as we've been coming to this area for the last 5 years. We "took a chance" that this was the real deal and we're glad we did. The accommodations were excellent. Clean, modern, not at all like most rentals in the area. Most have to deal with water pressure issues or no water at all, toilet limitations, excess bugs, and the worst internet in the world! Not really, just really bad internet for those whose need it for business. Whit had a 6 meg DSL hardline brought in and it works perfectly. While some may not care, we have to conduct business via the internet, even while on vacation, and for us it was a real treat to get our work done in a timely manner. This particular beach location is also one the safest in the area. No rocks to stumble over while walking out to the surf, no undertow, like the one directly in front of the business area in Dominical making this one of the safest places to swim. Everything about this rental is different than almost all the others. Nice furnishings, comfortable bed and bedding, great water pressure, thoughtful ambient lighting outdoors, I really could go on and on, because there is much more to say. If you like sunsets, this is one of the best locations. A lot of beautiful homes in Costa Rica just don't have the sunset to look at because of location. We had spectacular sunsets there. There is one other VERY important consideration while looking to find a place to rent, vehicle's. While almost all rentals in the area are on the mountain side of the Highway, Whit's home is on the beach. Therefore, there is no need for a 4 wheel drive SUV, which can save you a bundle of money and time. (Some of the rentals we've had took 15 minutes or more to "get to," going up steep and rutted roads which can be scary for some. And last but not least was the owner Whit. Again, having dealt with multiple "property managers" in the area it was nice to deal with the owner. Whit had an ease about him that will make you feel at home the minute you arrive. While he's there for any and all requests, and will happily accommodate them, he can also "disappear" and not bother you. He has great respect for your privacy which we appreciate. And finally, if you are a couple looking for romance in the best location in CR, this is it!! Enjoy!!
WOW!!! No one will ever believe I didn't write that myself...........ja ja .....I am especially proud to receive such a review from guests who travel here regularly....as I already mentioned.....you are welcome here anytime!!!!
Any activity you can imagine involving eco tourism. By car there are over 20 activities within 1 - 15 miles (waterfalls, horseback riding, surfing, zip line, boogie boarding, nature hikes etc.....)
