Roy or Marlene Epkenhaus purchased this villa in 2013

Why Roy or Marlene Epkenhaus chose Dominical

We chose to purchase a home in Costa Rica as we have holidayed in Dominical Beach on several occasions at all times of the year. We found the climate to be excellent and the weather to have been outstanding all the time. The warm waters of the Pacific Ocean continue to draw us back year after year as do the spectacular sunsets. Everyone we meet whether shopping or in the restaurants or simply strolling around were found to be very friendly. Most everyone speaks English which helps as we are not so good at Spanish!

What makes this villa unique

Having a Beach Side home has always been a dream of ours. The close proximity to the Beach, Restaurants, and local stores was a real selling feature. We love our house and it is the right size for a larger family to vacation in. The design of the villa is a Costa Rica style that shows to perfection. As an environmental addition, Solar Panels on the roof provide hydro electricity back onto the electricity grid, while roof top solar hot water is provided.

Fantastic stay, felt like home

  • 5 of 5

Property was perfect. Very spacious, with plenty of room for two couples. All the utensils necessary for cooking and updated appliances. Easily walkable to the beach and close to town. Marlon is an excellent caretaker who was extremely responsive to our needs. I will definitely stay at this property again when I come back to Dominical.

Awesome house with all the amenities and close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Roy's place in Dominical in May 2017 and had an amazing time. The house is a very short, less than 5 min walk to the beach. The house was fully stocked with all the appliances and kitchen items you need. The internet was fast and reliable and the cable tv had more channels than any other place I've stayed at in Costa Rica. My favorite part of the house was definitely the pool and outdoor patio in the backyard. It was really nice to relax in the pool after a long surf session and sitting outside on the patio was great. There is a ceiling fan outside in the patio which helps keep it cool even in the hot, humid weather. The check-in / check-out process was smooth and effortless, and Marlon (the property manager) was very responsive to all of our needs and did a great job in getting us acquainted with the house when we arrived. There are several restaurants within walking distance of the house and the grocery stores and main part of Dominical are about a 10 minute walk. The area is super quiet and relaxing and if you're looking for a nice, comfortable place to stay which is super close to the beach, this is the perfect spot.

One tip about Dominical, the stores and restaurants in town are quite expensive so it's actually worth it to rent a car so that you can drive to nearby towns (Uvita, Quepos) to do your shopping if you're going to stay here for more than a few nights. The 2 grocery stores in town are pretty limited and have very few fresh meat and vegetable options so having a car gives you a lot more options on grocery shopping and places to eat. The restaurants in Dominical are not that special either so it's nice to have ability to go to other places nearby. The roads in Dominical are good and you can get by with a compact car even in the rainy season.

Fabulous Awesome exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Our family was thrilled. 6 adults. The Villa is beautiful, immaculate, comfortable and lots of space. The backyard is amazing. We spent hours in the pool. Pleasant surprise to have a security guard every night. The concierge responded immediately to any questions. Very knowledgeable and a pleasure to deal with. A 5 minute walk to the beach, restaurants and shopping. I'd go back in a heartbeat. Loved it!

This house is perfect for a family. Great location, walk or bus everywhere. The pool was very refreshing and the kids loved it. Nice new kitchen. Bring a knife sharpener though! We will be back.
