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 much 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 Puntarenas

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

Amazing Adventure

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Villa Alegria. Todd was prompt in his response to our inquiry and handed us to Marlon. Marlon is the wonderful property manager who helped us arrange transportation from the airport to the villa, guided us with our selection of excursions. Every excursion was better than the previous. We could not have been happier.

We ate dinner at Jolly Roger’s, PorQueNo?, and Tortilla Flats. We did not rent a car and made most of our meals at home.

A beautiful escape!

  • 5 of 5

We took a quick getaway just before the holidays to relax from the hustle and bustle back in the states. Mary and Todd were so helpful, providing information about the shuttle from the airport, where and who we should rent a car in, adventures we should take, and let us know they had just finished the remodel and hoped we liked it.

As we pulled up, everything was breathtaking...and then we opened the front door. You're welcomed into a grand living room, with a bright teal wall, inviting parallel couches that encourage conversation, and stunning lighting fixtures. Statement pieces tastefully dress the walls throughout the house. Decks surround both sides of the house; the back offering an escape from the sun (with a grill!), and the front follows the curve of the infinity pool, wrapping around to an outdoor shower and comfy hammock, overlooking the Pacific.

The kitchen is spacious and offers everything you'll need! We were the first to use the newly installed dishwasher, and it did help us relax even more. At first when we were told it was well water, I was worried, but it was so clean and crisp!

The bedrooms, though, were the ultimate relaxing spot. The sheets are so incredibly soft, the pillows and bed you melt into, but most importantly, you don't melt under the blankets! The comforters are light weight, and each room has a fan and a personal AC unit. We barely used the AC though; the fan was just enough.

This house made us feel like we had been welcomed into a home, but the presentation, professionalism, and cleanliness made it feel like we were at a resort. Mary and Todd notified us that there were some safety features added, provided us with all the security information and each bedroom had a safe provided.

We were excited to return home for the holidays, but it was incredibly hard to leave this beautiful home. We hope to return soon and share this amazing destination with our friends and family.

Best Vacation ever with friends on a lovely Home!!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed at Villa Allegria for 5 days and it was truly a great experience. The house was very clean upon arrival and the reservation process was simple and quick. It was more than what I expected it to be, there was a beach view which was amazing, the rooms were beautifully decorated and were very spacious; there was a bathroom in each room which is a big plus, the pool area was very nice and large enough that you can enjoy a good swim. The manager of the house was very welcoming and easy to contact if needed. Overall I was more than satisfied with the house and would most likely be returning. I would greatly recommend it to anyone planning to stay in Costa Rica.

Great vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Two families of four stayed here for a week and fit comfortably. The location is easy to get to, the views are spectacular, the house was clean and the pool was clean. The kitchen could use a little upgrade (broken knob or two), refrigerator door opens when you close the freezer (be careful). But minor inconveniences for a rental house.

Iguanas walking around, easy access to the beach across the highway in the Roca Verde parking entrance, very close to Dominical. The nearby waterfall was awesome, a bit of a workout for the amateur, but horses and car tours are available. Manuel Antonio is a nice area and only 30 minutes away.

The owner Todd responds quickly to messages making it easy to book.

Had a great time. Would totally recommend for groups and families.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review James and as I always tell all my guests I really appreciate any feedback that could help future guests and make their experience better. You are correct about the kitchen issues as we are actually upgrading this month and have been waiting for various items we had shipped in to get through customs. We did already replace those broken door knobs and also are getting a really nice dishwasher and cooktop installed and brand new high quality dishes and cookware. Also, got the door seal fixed on that fridge so hopefully will not open when you close the freezer anymore. CR appliances tend to not be as good as US ones so they have these issues now and then even though that fridge is fairly new and why I had the new dishwasher and cooktop shipped from the US. I think you get the best of both worlds in Dominical, being a convenient location for a day trip to Manuel Antonio but getting the private beach access, amazing view and local feel that you cannot usually find when you stay in MA. Look forward to you guys coming again and seeing all the improvements we are making and getting to hang out with the house iguanas again.
