Once you walk into Villa Playa Vista you will not want to leave. This individual private home with two-bedrooms, two and one half bath overlooks the Pacific Ocean at a unique location where you can watch the surf all day long and listen to it all night long. The beach directly below Villa Playa Vista is noted as one of the most picturesque in the area due to the cove created by the peninsula of land that juts out into the ocean and the adjoining “Tree Island” that is accessible at low tide. Further along the uninterrupted 1.7 mile palm-lined beach you see the anchorage where the local fishermen keep their boats and the rock outcroppings that give the beach its unique character.


A fully equipped kitchen will allow you to prepare some of your favorite meals using the local fresh produce and fruits. Your private pool beckons to be enjoyed and the covered terrace will provide hours of outside living, the way most of the locals spend their time with great opportunities for wildlife viewing - especially early in the morning. Villa Playa Vista was the model for this new gated community with twenty-four hour security so it sits on one of the best view spots in the development. Plenty of parking too.

The unit is perfect for two couples when the two identical master bedrooms are set up with king beds. Two twin-sized beds can be requested to be set up in one the rooms or each room can have a twin set up in addition to the king to increase the sleeping capacity. This makes for close quarters but can work well depending on a family’s needs. An inflatable queen bed is also available for additional sleeping arrangements. Rates are set for four people with a $10 per day per person for more than four people.

Internet wireless connectivity is available for your laptops or you can use our equipment at our office just 1 Km. In addition to the amenities that are listed, there are a couple beach chairs you can use for your fun in the sun, the DVD player also plays your favorite CD’s. Located only 3 Km south of Dominical you are in the heart of all the activities that there are to enjoy in the vicinity including surfing the very popular beach right in Dominical or enjoying the more gentle waves at many of the close-by beaches.

Arrangements have been made with the neighbors next door for parties that are as large as 4 couples or more if the dates of occupancy work out. There is plenty of secure parking at the villa.

Villa Playa Vista sits on a jungle ridge and so to the rear are views of the primary jungle with roads for your morning walks just outside your front door. There is even a local swimming hole with a gorgeous waterfall just a short distance away. There are beach chairs and a soft cooler you can take to the beach. We have two boogie boards you can rent for your entire visit for $10 each and also a cell phone for calls within Costa Rica at our cost.

The owners of the property also own a local real estate company and provide wireless connectivity for your use at their office only 1 Km away or you can use our PC's to catch up on your e-mail (although you may not want to). They can also arrange for reservations at many of the local activities, popular restaurants and provide directions to the beaches the locals think are the best. Car rental and San Jose lodging discounts can also be arranged. A discount for return visitors is offered for those that will want to make this their Dominical tropical home away from home. The owners welcome your inquires and are glad to answer any questions you may have regarding their property, the surrounding area and any aspect of your visit.

Ask about last minute reservation discounts and discounts for Costa Ricans and people living in Costa Rica.

Whale watching from the veranda (seasonal). Waterfalls and horseback riding. Movies in the Jungle. Local Jungle Bar nearby. Dominical 2 km away.

World class surfing 1.6 miles away and beginning surfing waves 1000 feet away. Funky to fine restaurants nearby.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We are Costa Rican residents (US citizens) and own a real estate company in Dominical. Deb and I maintain homes in Alaska and Colorado where we spend time doing a lot of outdoor activities that both places have to offer. We look forward to sharing some guacamole and margarita’s when you are here. I make killer nacho's too.

Why the Owner Chose Dominical, Costa Rica:
On Deb's first visit to Costa Rica she traveled the entire Pacific Coast and instantly fell in love with the topography here in Dominical as soon as she crossed over the Rio Baru. The people we meet that live here and visit are some of the most interesting we have met and so it is the people tht keep us here (the fact that it is still relatively undiscovered piece of paradise is not a bad draw either)

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
By being a local business owner with an office just 1 Km from the villa you will get personal service regarding reservations for activities and a source to answer the many questions you might have. We know how special your holiday is and we want you to spend your time enjoying the area, not figuring out what to do or not do.
