Slide into your private pool to cool off after your day lazing on the beach or exploring Dominical's many fun activities. Then grab a cool drink to sip under your palapa to watch the day sink into the ocean while you decide to eat in or venture out for dinner. Our two-level ocean view villa has two master bedrooms, each with their own bathroom and balcony on the downstairs level along with a TV area that can sleep one or two more, and adjacent laundry room. Upstairs you'll find a classic great room with a fully equipped kitchen, dining area/living room. The views of the beach, ocean, and wildlife are amazing from the living room and the palapa/pool deck just outside your doors.
We are located within Canto del Mar (Song of the Sea, a gated community of 34 mountainside villa’s located on a hillside just south of Dominical across from Dominicalito Beach.. Parking is conveniently right outside your villa and round-the-clock security adds to the peaceful and relaxed experience. You’ll have an abundance of wildlife just outside your door or window including a variety of birds, monkeys, lizards, sloths, and more.
On our current visit (May 2017) we saw these two curious monkeys right out on our deck. https://youtu.be/aIn7NrrPW9c
During our visit in April 2016 we had both monkeys on the deck and sloths in the trees in front (one with a baby). You can see videos of these by clicking on the Youtube links at the end of this description.
You can walk to ocean and enjoy a day at the beach. Or take a drive to nearby restaurants, a grocery store, bank, and much more all within a couple of miles. You can surf, swim, or take any number of adventure tours. Our local host is David, a Costa Rica native and tour guide, and he will be glad to share his knowledge of the area ensuring you have a wonderful time, and get to do and see all the things that brought you here. He will also help you book your tours and excursions. Finally, in the evening, cool off with a drink and when it’s time to sleep, drift off with the sounds of gentle ocean waves.
Some of the benefits of our villa include the pool (not all units have them), the view (we don’t look out onto other units, or the highway), and location (being at one end of the complex provides more wildlife). Plus, while 4 wheel drive is useful depending if you will travel “off road”, you don’t need 4 wheel drive to get to our villa like you would many of the others. And the walk to the ocean and nearby waterfall is a little shorter and less steep.
Dave & Toni, the owners of Villa Sol Besó (Sun Kissed Villa), love Costa Rica and are committed to making your stay one you will always remember. After visiting many parts of Costa Rica, we chose the Dominical area as our favorite. It’s a unique part of the Central America coast where the jungle meets the ocean. Where else can you hear and see both the ocean as well as howler monkeys and six foot long iguanas? Add in world class surfing, fishing, and the world famous Marino Ballena National Park nearby. We suggest you fly into Quepos from San Jose (a short 20 minute flight instead of a 3+ hour drive) where they will bring your rental car right to where you pick up your luggage. You’ll be at your villa in an easy 45 minutes from when your plane lands!
