My family personally goes down there every year to make sure house is in tip top shape. You will get your own personal concierge and my manager takes an active role and is always available and well as guests can always personally email or call me and get an instant response. Don't make the mistake of picking a home run by a management company that will not available when you need them or that looks good in pictures but is a 5-10 minute drive up a bumpy road. Villa Alegria offers an incredible value and service that is hard to beat and my family and my team always work to provide the best value to our guests!

Ocean Front, Mediterranean style Villa with dramatic views, features four spacious master suites all with ocean views. Three of the en suite bathrooms feature double showers with windows facing the Pacific and the fourth, an ultra private modern glass shower. All suites offer outside access, three of which have ocean facing glass French doors with screens and the fourth with a full wall of french casement windows to allow one to fully enjoy the breeze and relaxing sounds of the waves crashing below.

Nestled into the mountainside under plush rain forest canopy, Villa Alegría is one of the very few properties available which offers both the privacy and views you desire and the close proximity to amenities and ease of access. 200 meters (220 yards) down the mountain, you will find access to Roca Verde restaurant and beach, as well as access to the main thoroughfare which runs throughout southern Costa Rica. It is only a five minute walk from Villa Alegría or a quick two minute drive for you to dip your toes into the warm Pacific waters. Dominical Beach, a world famous surfing location, is only one kilometer (less than a mile) from the house and the beaches of Dominicalito, Playa Hermosa, and the extraordinary Playa Ventanas in Ojochal are all easily accessible by car. The elevation of the property provides the perfect balance of amazing views, privacy and access, ensuring your experience will be unforgettable!

Bask in the gorgeous Costa Rican sunshine on our extended patio or cool off in the beautiful infinity pool overlooking the ocean and tropical landscaping. You will be amazed by the wildlife! Our guests regularly report seeing butterflies, hummingbirds, toucans, coatis, agoutis, huge iguanas and even sloths in the area! Locally handcrafted benches on the covered patio are the perfect place to enjoy the spectacular sunsets and outdoor dining furniture is available for your use. Villa Alegría also features a beautiful double hammock where you can snuggle with your loved ones or relax and read a book from our library while listening to the waves.

Villa Alegría's four spacious Master Suites all have ocean views and en suite bathrooms. Three of the bedrooms are outfitted with king beds, the fourth bedroom features a queen bed and all 4 bedrooms include futons for seating or extra guests and air mattresses are also available if needed. We are a family friendly house and also offer a Pack n' Play for infants and toddlers, as well as an infant bathing tub for your use. All rooms have spacious closets and both ceiling and personal fans, along with individual air conditioning units if you prefer. We always encourage our guests to take advantage of the very special location and let the sounds of the ocean waves lull you to sleep and help us to protect Costa Rica's pristine environment by keeping energy use low, but know that even the most adventurous travelers sometimes need a break from the tropical heat!

Special amenities include books and games for your friends and family to enjoy, a personal concierge with over 10 years of experience arranging and assisting our guests' ideal vacations, washer and dryer on site, and a United States based VPN, which will allow you to access all streaming and subscription services which are otherwise blocked in Costa Rica. (Netflix, Hulu, Spotify, Pandora, etc.) If requested, owner can reassign the VPN to your country of origin during your stay so that you may access country specific internet services. The property has also recently had over $50,000 in upgrades!

The rental price include professional cleaning before and after your stay, but housekeeping services during your visit are available for a small fee. We can also arrange chef prepared meals, tours, adventures and excursions, transportation to and from the airport, and most anything else your heart desires!

Villa Alegría is our dream home and we want your visit to be just as special and amazing as our time in this beautiful country, so please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or suggestions. Pura Vida!

About Todd Harris

My name is Todd Harris, me and my wife have been lucky enough to buy our Costa Rica beach dream house. We were fortunate to give birth to our second child in July right here at Villa Alegria and it was an amazing experience. We live at this house for some of the year and will let renters enjoy this fabulous house and location when we are spending time elsewhere. We are very responsive to calls and emails and are determined to make the experience as easy and enjoyable for our special guests.

Todd Harris purchased this villa in 2014

Why Todd Harris chose Dominical

House is great for renters as 4 large bedrooms each with their own bathroom. House is right off main road and you can easily walk down to a secluded beach. Incredible location and views are awesome. Me and my wife and our property manager with 10 years experience in Dominical are determined to give our guests the best experience possible.

What makes this villa unique

Within walking distance to beach and main street in Dominical, yet still high enough to get amazing ocean views and hear and see the wondrous Pacific Ocean. Owners live here part of the year so house is fully equipped with comforts of home. Many books and board games here for you to come and enjoy your relaxing time and getaway with family and friends.

Fantastic Costa Rican Vacation - Perfect Location and Property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been traveling to Costa Rica since the early 1980's and this was the best experience yet (and there have been many, many good ones)! The Dominical location is great as it is south enough to miss the crowds, but not too far to be classified as remote.

The house and infinity pool were just fantastic - everything was in great condition, modern and well kept. We visited when the temperatures were in the 90's so the pool was used constantly. The 4 bedrooms had both fans and air conditioning that worked great. All bedrooms had very modern bathrooms that were clean and modern.

The Owner, Todd Harris was very responsive and helpful with anything that you need. In addition, the caretaker was also very helpful and spoke excellent English.

If you're in a group, this is a perfect house for you, whether a close family or several families or couples.

Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thanks Todd, Dominical does provide a unique and awesome travel experience even for those who have been to Costa Rica numerous times. It is close enough to Manuel Antonio to do any tourist activity you desire but remote enough to get a feel for the unique and beautiful jungle environment and a true local feel. I find those who have been to Costa Rica before tend to really appreciate my house and the exemplary service we provide the most! I am glad you guys had an amazing time, Marlon and I do our best to give first rate customer service and those who have been to Costa Rica before understand the difference a responsive owner and house manager can do versus management companies who have many properties to attend to. Hope you can come again! Thanks

Absolutely wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Myself and seven friends spent four nights at Villa Alegría and had a fantastic time. The home is in immaculate condition and is very close to the small surf town of Dominical. It was easy to find and felt very safe and secure. The home was absolutely as advertised and the pool and the view are as good as it gets!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Todd and Marlon were fantastic hosts and the house was even better than it looked in the photos. There were 7 of us in total and we had a wonderful time. Originally, I thought I wanted to stay closer to Uvita but really this is an ideal location and Domincal is a great little surfing village with just about everything you need. We went during rainy season (July) and while it did rain quite a bit it was mostly late afternoon and only for a couple hours at a time. The food at the local restaurants was fantastic, no problems drinking the water, and there are lots of activites to do nearby (we surfed, scuba dived, snorkled at Cano Island, went zip lining, and took a horseback ride to a nearby waterfall). Thanks again to our awesome hosts!

Owner's Response: Thanks Michael! Appreciate the kind words, Marlon and I really do our best to try the make the experience special. Many guests ask about the rainy season and it is true that is rarely rains before 2pm and that rain does produce awesome lightning off the Pacific at night and makes the area a little cooler.

Wonderful home in Dominical!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Villa Alegria! We were a familly of 7 with children form 10 to 13. The house was as beautiful as the pictures shown on the site! Everything was really clean and all you need in terms of towels for pool and beach is there. It was a great place to chill after our daily activities. We did not use the kitchen as eat out everyday but it was well furnished too. The view from the pool and the house is stunning! You can't get enough of it.

Tod was really helpful and quick to respond. He reached to us when we were there to ensure our stay was going well.

Marlon, the property manager helped us booked activities and was always available to help with we needed. Thank you Marlon for this, it has been greatly appreciated!

We had a great time in Villa Alegria and it was hard to leave.

We have seen a sloth in Manuel Antonio park as well as monkeys, it was magical! I recomend playa gemelas there for its sheer beauty.

I would advise for you to have a rental car to stay in this property as the walk to Dominical is not verry nice. If the tide is high, you have to walk along the road, down below, which is busy. Get a SUV as when it rains the steep driveway can be a challenge. Still it is concreted and therefore much better than many tracks we have seen.

I hope to come back soon to Villa Alegria.
