Oceanfront Home and Guest Cottage in Dominical, Costa Rica

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Beach House- 2 Bed/2 Baths (Sleeps 6), Guest Cottage- 1Bed/1Bath (Sleeps 4)

Oceanfront rentals at Beach House Incognito. Located just 2 kms. South of Dominical, nestled between mountainous rainforest and tropical beach, right on the Ocean. Enter and exit your oceanfront hideaway through an electric security gate that ensures your privacy.

Choose from our large 2 story beach house that sleeps up to 6, with 2 bedroom, queen sleeper/sofa, 2 bath, and 2 car garage. Or our 1 bedroom guest cottage with double sleeper/sofa, that can accommodate up to 4. Better yet, rent our entire place, giving you your very own private resort. Both beachfront house and guest cottage comes with every amenity you could desire to make your vacation a memorable one. Comfortable lounge chairs surround our large 18 by 36 pool for sun-worshippers, or if you prefer a shady spot, choose one of the numerous hammocks or rocking chairs for reading, relaxing, or a siesta.

Our beach front home is $1,500/week off season, and $2,000 high season. The cottage is $700/off season, and $800/high season. With a 3 night minimum. Our property is a lush garden with numerous flowering plants, that attract tons of butterflies, and hummingbirds. Many types of birds pass through daily, in search of their breakfast of mangoes, papayas, and bananas, all growing on the property. Our local iguanas are constantly competing with the birds, for whatever fruit is available. A cup of coffee, a rocking chair, with the sites and sounds of the Pacific Ocean, playing in the back ground, is my idea of a perfect start to your morning. It just doesn't get any better than this.

The property was absolutely gorgeous!

  • 5 of 5

Our time at the house was amazing! The beach in front was beautiful and at low tide you could spend hours exploring the rocks and all the sea life that the water had left behind in little pools. Octopus, starfish, hermit crabs galore and even turtle eggs!

The pool was used a lot more than I thought it would. Early morning swims were a great way to start the day. The pool was nice and warm and is maintained twice a week with very little chemicals no red eyes. Lots of pool toys too.

The outside barbecue area was used often as well. There are horseshoes to play and a fire pit and a nice walking path to the water.

The house stayed cool with just the fans, the beds were comfortable and the showers were hot. there was no detail missed when designing this house. The only problem was that we were all so happy and comfortable at the house, that we didn’t want to leave to tour.

Lyle was there to greet us upon our arrival and he booked us a catamaran tour, a zip line tour and white water rafting tour with Rafiki Lodge. All top notch, professional companies. There are so many to choose from and we were pleased with his bookings. Lyle also suggested nearby waterfalls, and beaches. He was very informative and great to have around. Full of local knowledge.

Little towns were very friendly and food markets have everything you could possibly want.

There were 9 of us, 3 generations and we were all equally happy. We would love to come here again!

Perfect Paradise....

  • 5 of 5

Beach House Incognito is such a wonderful place....the location is splendid!!!! Every morning I walked the beach and rarely saw another peaceful.....the pool was magnificent and we spent many hours floating & fun.....the location is close to grocery shops & banks ....prolly about a 30 minute walk into Dominical....This was our 2nd time staying here & we love love loved it again. The caretaker is Lyle & he is always around to give us suggestions on what to do & he will make the reservations for us....I would suggest a massage outside on the deck overlooking such a breathtaking was a great way for us to unwind & relax. Lyle arranged it for us....thank you Lyle...he also suggested a Whale Watching trip which was something out of this world. We got to see a mama & her baby. So sweet👍?Also, the restaurants in the area are fabulous!!!! Try Porque No & La Parcela & even go get pizza at Roca Verde....all in all, my only complaint was that I had to leave & come back home....I probably could stay there a month or two.....our stay was too short😢?

We are already planning our next trip & have been telling all our friends about this piece of Paradise..... The house comfortly sleeps 6, and the two super large bathrooms are big enough for at least 2 people at a time....all towels are bright & fluffy so need to bring your own....& actually you really don’t need much here but a pair or shorts, flip flops, & a bathing or 2....I often wore my bathing suit & a coverup out to dinner....

I could go on & on, but you have to see this place to believe it!!!!

Pura Vida mi amigos.....muchas gracias💋?

Great house, even better pool!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over the Christmas holiday with family at this home. We ranged in age from 1 to 63. The house could use a set of plastic dishes/glasses for easier use around the pool but that's the only negative I would say. The pool was perfect, we spent many hours in the pool area. Lyle was very helpful in booking activities in the area and calling a taxi when we needed. In hindsight we should have rented a car when at the home. We ate dinner at the restaurants to both the south and north of the home. Great food and beautiful sunsets at both. We saw monkeys at the restaurant to the south. We highly recommend Naucaya Falls. We opted to go in the open air truck on the 2 hour tour - the drive to the Naucaya Falls from the house is approx. 20min.

Great place to stay right on the beach. Lyle was great and helped us with sight seeing and local grocery store. Por Que No? Restaurant just a short walk down the beach and very good. We could not have stayed at a better place for our daughters wedding week. The house is beautiful and comfortable!!!!!! Thanks for your help Lyle!!!

Oceanfront Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My family spent 3 days at this beautiful oceanfront home. Owner Greg was our great host who stayed in his guest cottage while my family of 5 stayed in his beautiful main house. The house was extremely well furnished with all the comforts of home (internet, cable TV, a/c, ceiling fans in every room, stainless steel appliances etc..). The top floor housed the kids with a queen bed plus pullout with its own bathroom and massive balcony complete with 2 hammocks to watch the waves rolling in. The main floor had the master bedroom with a huge bathroom and newly installed double shower. The main floor opens up to another beautiful balcony complete with a large dining area which leads down to the pool area. It was great to be able to oversee the pool from either balcony or the gazebo area while the kids swam. The pool area leads into a short garden path which winds through some palm and almond trees to a wonderful beach area. At high tide the water reaches right up to the trees while at low tide there is a wide flat sandy beach with many interesting tidal pool areas for beachcombing. My kids loved exploring the very private beach area and finding crabs and fish of all types. A couple of hundred metres down the beach was a great little restaurant called PorQueNo (4th rated in Trip Advisor). Last but not least was our interaction with Lyle, the property manager and tour advisor. Lyle went out of his way to arrange local tours for us (Waterfall, River treks), find us great guides us (Manuel Antonio Park) or make restaurant recommendations. A fantastic stop on our Costa Rican vacation which I strongly recommend.

Perfect location for first time travellers to Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location for us and Greg and Lyle went above and beyond in insuring we had the best vacation ever. Close to the rugged surfing town of Dominical, seconds to an expansive and secluded beach with exquisite views. Lovely and private swimming pool. House is spacious and has the basics needed to enjoy the day hanging out at the property but close to many fantastic adventures if you want to get out and truly experience all that Costa Rica has to offer. Thanks so much for making us feel so welcome, safe and introducing us to this amazing place. We will be back.

About Gregory Miller

I came exploring Costa Rica in 1989. My friends and current neighbors Richard and Diane, owners of Coconut Grove Cottages, ask me if I would consider buying land in Costa Rica. Soon we were owners of a 200 acre farm. We would come to this isolated beach, drink coconuts and learn from Amancio, whom the rocks out front are named after. Before you knew it we had a home, and soon cottages slowly came out of this Cacao field. Coconut Grove quickly became popular, with few vacancies. I wanted my own place, and soon we were no longer partners, just friends and neighbors. I built Beach House Incognito in 2008, and now can come and go, when my freedom allows it. We currently spend about 5-6 months a year here, with the other time spent at our home in Florida. Most folks in Florida, go north for the summer. We on the other hand head south, to our most incredible beach here in Dominicalito.
