About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bathrooms, Beach Front Property With Pool

• Now With Reliable Cable Internet 5Mbps download / 1.5 Mbps Upload.

Tropical fun, adventure, and relaxation await you and your family and friends. There are a variety of excellent surf spots starting with the beach break just past the pool. The natural beauty of Costa Rica is served up inside and out in this beautifully designed home located close to town, but far from anything you have ever seen in this area of Costa Rica. The open architecture takes advantage of the incredible setting. The home feels light and airy with great views from almost every window. Lush gardens and the sweeping sand beach are seamlessly joined by natural trees and plants.

Comfort! Each bedroom has a dedicated air conditioner, fan, screened windows and sliding glass doors. The beds, interior, and exterior furniture are excellent quality and very comfortable. Much of the furniture was built by local craftsmen. The family room, dining room, kitchen, and upstairs seating area have ceiling fans, and screened windows and doors.

Playa Dominical and the nearby coastal town of Uvita have loads of restaurants featuring local flavors and casual dining. The variety of eateries bring out the international diversity of people who have found their way to this fantastic, tropical beach town. The community of Dominical is very welcoming and the authentic Costa Rican, Pura Vida vibe abounds. There are no casinos, high rise hotels, or fancy nightclubs; but Dominical does have a great night life based on people coming together to eat, drink, dance, and socialize in the casual atmosphere of this south Pacific beach town. The place has something surprising and pleasant for people of every age.

The home and surrounding environment is very family and child friendly, designed to make it easy for people to spend time together in paradise. It is important to remember as with all Pacific beaches and resorts, young children should be supervised while playing in the ocean or pool. The beach at low tide is expansive and inviting. Sunrises and sunsets are often spectacular. You will find much of what you have dreamed of Costa Rica, right here at Caballitos del Mar (Little horses of the Sea)..

Caballitos Del Mar South sits adjacent to two other villas (Caballitos Del Mar North and Central) that were built in a similar fashion. The three villas are private and can be rented separately or, for large groups conducting weddings or reunions, they can be rented all together. And while the beach out front is public, it is rarely visited by tourists or locals. For most of your stay, you’ll have the sand and waves all to yourself. The villa can sleep as many as seven adults.

Far exceeded our expectations....

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Costa Rica so were very apprehensive about our accommodations. Much to our surprise it was exactly as portrayed in the listing. A gorgeous place with wonderful people. We went for a much needed vacation. One just for some rest and relaxation and that is exactly what we got. The people that we met were some of the best folks we've ever met traveling. The house was amazing.....very spacious and included all the amenities that you might need for a great vacation. The pool provided a great place for relaxing. The ocean just a few steps from the house was beautiful. We will be going back to Costa Rica in the very near future in hopes of purchasing a home there!

Perfect Week!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house exceeded our expectations. We had 6 people in our party and plenty of room - never felt crowded. The pool area with our visiting iguanas was so relaxing. Daily beach walks started our days, followed by must do adventures. Zip lining at Hacienda Baru was a great time, and the horse excursion up to Nauyaca Waterfall is a must. All of the people we met on our trip were so friendly - can't wait to return. I highly recommend this location if you prefer to travel on flatter land. We were constantly on the go, and as much as I loved the houses up the mountain, it was easier for us to be beach side. Favorite restaurants were Fuego (downtown Dominical), Jolly Roger (up the mountain so head up while there's daylight), Phat Noodle (downtown Dominical), and PorQueNo. Dominical is such a beautiful area and well worth the drive from San Jose airport. Costa Rica is truly Pura Vida! Randall and Mary Morgan

Best Vacation Spot Ever!

  • 5 of 5

When we booked, we thought there would be tons of houses on the beach. Wrong! These were the only three in the area. Dominical is the best place to be. Not touresty, just a laid back surfer vibe. We hung out with the "locals" and they made us feel like one of them. We visited other regions while we were there but they were crowded and full of tourists. We had the entire beach to ourselves everyday, just a few feet from our door. I would give 10 stars if I could.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here has exceeded our expectations. From the moment we checked in, we were impressed with everything. Steve met us at the property and gave us the lay of the land. We were pretty tired from travel and it was late so we ate and went to bed. When we woke up, we were shocked how close the beach and water was to the house. If your standing in the pull, you could throw a rock and hit the ocean at high tide. The house was super clean and had a well equipped kitchen that met all our needs. The beds were comfy and the property has plenty of towels. Through out the week we had cleaners and landscapers constantly perfecting the grounds and night time security. We felt very safe here. The location is perfect and close to so many things. I highly recommend this or any of the three properties on this space. We hopefully will return in the future. Thanks!

I rented this amazing property for the month of February 2017. Each week a different set of family or friends visited me here. Everyone was delighted for the house, the pool, the beach, and the view---with everything. One guest kept saying over and over, "I can't believe we can float in the pool and enjoy the sound and sight of the surf! Better than the best hotel!" And he was right. The house is spacious and has every amenity. The location is great--much better than the over-crowded and over-priced Manuel Antonio. The house is close to lots of activities and tours. Working with the personnel was easy in every way. Stephen will arrange the tours for you and, best of all, give specific directions for how to get there . Getting there isn't always easy in a country with few signs. Jorge and Cindy are

friendly and easy to like. I can't think of a thing I could suggest for change. Pure Vida!

Thanksgiving in Costa Rica was a success!

  • 5 of 5

We were nervous about spending Thanksgiving in another country with our two young children (7 and 4), but upon arrival our fears subsided. We rented a car from the airport in San Jose and the drive to the home was simple and beautiful as we got to see some animals and the mountains. When we arrived at the house it exceeded our expectations and was spacious and clean. The view from the pool overlooking the private beach was priceless and we spent most of our time there. The kids enjoyed the beach and pool daily and the adults even surfed out back at low tide. We used the kitchen several times as there is a store conveniently located a few minutes away and all cooking equipment was included in the home. There was plenty to do within a minutes drive including downtown Dominical, waterfalls, fishing, etc. Overall we had an amazing time and my 7 year old son said it was his favorite Thanksgiving break ever!
