What makes this Villa unique
Villa del Mar is definitely a very unique property indeed! The Villa doesn't just have ocean views, but the most killer 180 degree ocean and coastal views all the way to Manuel Antonio! Plus the attention to details, the expansive outside living area, the high ceilings throughout with sliding glass doors leading to private balconies with even more incredible views! A fully equipped kitchen with plenty of serving dishes, and everything you will need to entertain and enjoy! And don't forget about our onsite staff, also included with your stay!

Good staff specially Mr alex
Beautiful home, gorgeous view!
We enjoyed staying at Villa Del Mar, and the small town of Dominical so much we are already talking about returning. The concierge (Richard) was very helpful and informative even when we had small issues. The house was clean and well stocked with needed items. The town is only 2 main streets, but there are great restaurants like the Fuego Brewery and Cafe Mono Congo (we are breakfast there every morning). Highly recommend Villa Del Mar for vacation!
Thanks so much! I’m so happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay at Villa Del Mar, and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
Beautiful place 1st class !
Great pool and outside living area Overall best place we have ever stayed!
Soi glad you enjoyed your stay at Villa Del Mar! It is truly amazing and I love it as much as you do!
I could live outside every day here
I would have given 5 but we had a glitch of the AC going out in a cabana. Owner was kind enough to work on some compensation even offering signifiant savings on next trip but we had a child with significant health issues so we knew we could not return soon. Home was AMAZING! Originally we were considering renting a 4wheel drive at airport and winging it but the Monkey rides were worth every cent and piece of mind because it was a significant drive from San Jose- we would have been lost in Panama. Stunning pool and porch and Alex was always up trying to help us. The monkey ride people were great support just like we had our own concierge service at our 5 star hotel. The toucans, monkeys were a treat to watch- but seeing a sloth on the trip evaded us. I recommend bringing your American food "wants" because we love to not eat out and cook but I would have killed for sweet-n-low or chipotle. In hindsight I would have packed a whole suitcase of food supplies- groceries were surprisingly expensive and food was not as reasonable as I expected. On the other hand we hit the fresh fruit and vegetable stands and had the most amazing chicken dishes, fruit drinks, and vegetables. The house is worth the drive and in 7 days we only did ziplines and the awesome 7 hour ATV ride to waterfall ( priceless) from Dominical. Amazing job with Monkey rides Richard and Estefan - it was first a "sticker shock" but worth every cent. I was more shocked on price of groceries but just something to keep in mind- just eat at restaurants when doing the awesome tours.
This is a beautiful home in a beautiful destination. We only had four short days here but we loved having coffee and watching the birds each morning, including a toucan! You can even hear the ocean early in the morning. The views are incredible and cannot be captured by pictures. We traveled with three adults and our 12 and 14 year old. Our children easily shared the room by the driveway, but it is worth noting that all three suites are in completely separate buildings. The first bedroom is right across from the front door. This room also has a small couch, so it made a perfect spot for our two kids. The second suit is in the main house on the second floor and the third suit is accessed using an exterior stairway on the other side of the the main building. The stairway also adjoins to the second floor balcony. The highest suite has sweeping views and is like being in a glass house. Having to meet the concierge at the gates seemed odd at first, but it's because there are three gates on the way up to the house that need to be opened by remotes. It's the same for check-out which I did not realize. You cannot get up or down the hill without the remotes. So you will need to coordinate your arrival and departure. We were driving from Arenal so we were unsure of our exact arrival time but it easily got worked out and the company sent someone over to meet us within ten minutes. We tried several restaurants in Dominical including Fuego Brew for dinner, Mono Congo for breakfast and Por Que No? The sunset at Por Que No was amazing! We also visited Hacienda Baru just down the the road from the house to try out zip lining (perfect for beginners) and traveled to Manuel Antonio to explore the park one morning (we were able to see sloth and monkeys at the park). We used the grill one night for dinner and had drinks overlooking the ocean each afternoon. The kids loved the wifi and the infinity pool. The house is less than 3 hours from SJO and we found it very easy to navigate the area. We had a wonderful stay at Villa del Mar.
Truly is Paradise!
The property and the staff that maintains it is amazing! Our entire stay was relaxing and stress free. You really can call the concierge for just about anything you need. I threw my neck out while there and needed a massage, but couldn't bear the bumpy ride down the drive into town. Called the concierge and they brought the massage therapist to me! They delivered our rental car, came to open the electric gate when the power went out briefly from a storm, jumped our car battery when it died...the list goes on and on. The property itself is just as amazing as the pictures convey. It is incredibly private and you are surrounded by all the scenery Costa Rica has to offer. We even saw a sloth in the driveway to the house! There was one thing I was surprised by, but I am sure it was an oversight on my part. I did not realize that all three bedrooms are essentially separate buildings on the property with different entrances. Great for couples or families sharing the home, but our young daughter needed to bunk up with my mother in law. Definitely not a negative, but something to consider for those traveling with small children. Long review short, we loved every minute of our stay and would absolutely return in the future if Rick would have us.
Villa del Mar is located in the beautiful 125 acre gated community of Paradise Breezes Phase II, just 500 mts from the beach, with the amazing views of the ocean and coast! You can actually hear the waves as you watch them rolling into shore from the bedrooms, decks, pool as well as pretty much everywhere through the property!
Villa del Mar is completely private, and you won't see a neighbor, yet close to everything!
Paradise Breezes is sprawled over 125 acres of lush tropical forest, and being on the edge of the primary forest, the property is filled with toucans, white face monkeys, sloths, colorful birds and butterflies, and an abundance of tropical flowers and plants everywhere.
Enjoy hiking through the private road that goes through the entire resort, a great experience and right outside your door! You'll be amazed at what you will find!
There are so many beaches all within minutes of Villa del Mar, each with it's own unique charm and qualities, like Playa La Guapil, located directly below Villa del Mar, where the mountain meets the ocean, and very private, where a fresh water river flows into the sea, or Playa Linda, (translates to "Beautiful beach" in English) and truly deserves it's name! There's Playa Dominical, known for it's charm and surfing competitions, and has a lifeguard, or Playa Uvita in the shape of a whale's tale, or Playa Ventanas, with amazing caves that you can actually walk through that connects the ocean with the inlet and the beach area, a great experience and must see for sure! As well as so many other beaches, all close by and all different!
