Very spacious and clean, lovely house
We stayed one week, and although the very hot weather limited things like use of the pool and patio, we appreciated the house’s spacious rooms and functional design. (Pool water got too warm each day) We only suggest upgrading bed linens and adding some lamps for softer lighting. Kept ourselves stocked with good food from a few different grocery stores and fruit stands. The nearest towns of Dominical and Uvita offer great low key experiences. House location is uphill from the village of Dominicalito, which contrasts very much with the upscale house but is not noisy. The tours we reserved through Alejandro were all well run. The tour companies themselves did overstate opportunities to see animals, fish, waterfalls, etc. Favorite restaurants were Fuego in Dominical, Buru in Manuel Antonio, Hotel Cuna del Angel near Uvita. Visited several beaches. Beautiful but some rough surf and quick drop-offs for children.
We had a wonderful stay here. Home is simple clean and peaceful.
My three sons in their 20s and I spent a week here. Everyone had space and time to relax and connect. The waterfall was quite small as it was dry season. Pool warm and relaxing. We were close to beaches ATVing and zip lining. Minor and Alejandro were very helpful. It was lovely to drive through Dominicalito to get to the house. It was authentically Costa Rican rather than a manicured resort area. There were pineapples growing by the pool. Iguanas in the trees and birds that visited daily.
Perfect for our group
My spouse and I, plus four other friends, were very pleased with the Waterfall House during our stay in the Dominical area. Minor (the host) was very responsive to our questions before and during our stay. The on-site caretaker took care of some of our immediate needs.
The house is very spacious and open. We liked the upstairs living area and balcony, and the huge kitchen and outdoor patio area on the ground floor. The pool was great for cooling off and relaxing.
The location is very good for exploring the area -- it's not too far from the main road, but still private, and it was always fun to drive through the village of Dominicalito on our way to and from the house. There's an amazing fresh fish shop in the village, and a fairly well-stocked super. The nearby waterfall is lovely, but be warned, getting there requires negotiating a steep stairway without hand rails.
We did notice a few downsides or things that could be improved. In general, there was a lack of amenities (insufficient towels, no hair dryer, only a few clothes hangers, only two working pool chairs) -- things you'd expect to find in a house by the beach. It's a bit noisy during the day -- roosters and barking dogs in the village below, and truck noise from the highway. It's much quieter and peaceful at night. You really do need a car here; the beach is more than a short walk away, and there are no taxis. The lighting in the house is not very friendly -- all harsh LED can lights.
But, all of these are minor complaints, and overall we had a great time in this house, and would certainly stay here again. Thanks and Pura Vida!
We had such a wonderful time staying at this house! The pool was great for the kids. They swam in the mornings, afternoons and even in the pouring rain some of the evenings. It was great to have it for them to enjoy after days of exploring! We had 3 adults and 2 children. Perfect amount of bedrooms for us but could easily sleep some more comfortably. We BBQed, we spent a lot of late nights on the back patio and upstairs porch listening to the very much alive Jungle! It was breath taking. The waterfall across the way was beyond beautiful, super refreshing and so much fun. We had some locals show up when we were there and they showed us the ropes. Literally. They have a super fun rope swing that we wouldn't have gotten the pleasure of playing on had they not shown up. They taught my daughter how to properly swing from it and she had a blast. Dominical is a small & cute little town and I fell in love. Uvita also has some Great eating spots!! We kept all our tours close. Horseback riding to nyuaka falls, tube floating down the Rio Baru, nature walk and beach day in Manuel Antonio as well as hitting the beach just across the way from the house watching an amazing sunset. We enjoyed the reptile park and finished with the amazing Osa canopy tour. Incredible we even got to see the cutest sloth hanging from the top of the tree deep in the jungle. Would've never seen one the way that we did without being high in the trees above the world in a zipline. We were super lucky and it was awesome! I absolutely enjoyed coming this time of year (first week of November) less people, nice beautiful days and pouring in the afternoon/evenings made everything that much more of an adventure. This stay was more than I could've hoped for and I only wish I was staying longer. I highly recommend this house. Also last but not least Minor was the property manager and he was very helpful all the way through. Super genuine when we met. Waited late for us when we arrived and made sure we found the house by guiding us to it. Thank you for everything.
My wife and I were nervous with the pictures but the place is perfect! The waterfall in back is the perfect place for the kids to cool off out of the afternoon sun. House is simple and everything you need. Backyard/patio/porch/pool is beautiful- great views- pure relaxation. 5 phenomenal beaches within 20 minute drive- from deserted to local- so many choices!
This house is where dreams come true! Ample space to get that much needed alone time you crave when often traveling with a crew. The pool views are unbeatable. We were visited by so many different types of birds, butterflies, and iguanas. Sunset here is so gorgeous you don’t even need to go to the beach. The little town has a local convenient store and the beach is a 3 minute drive and 15 minute walk down the hill and through Dominicalito. We are a five minute drive to Dominical where you find a host of restaurants and shops. It’s nice to be out of the direct hustle and bustle of the center of town. The pictures truly don’t do this house justice. Thank you so much to Minor and Rudolpho you made our experience one we will never forget! Pura Vida!
