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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

“We've enjoyed every minute of our stay in this house! The backyard with pool is amazing and only a few steps away from the beach. It's a public beach, but nobody's there. (Except for maybe the guests of the 2 neighbour houses) We could surf in front of the house, we had the spot for ourselves! We've also surfed in Dominical. The waves are best there, but it's nice to also be able to surf in front of the house with no people around. The house fulfilled all expectations, it looked literally like it did in the pictures. It's super complete. Like a washing and drying machine and laundry products, dishwasher and product, hairdryer, iron, barbeque, garage for the car, tv with netflix.. just all you need is there! It's very clean, and somebody comes to clean and change garbage bags and towels every day. Definitely recommend this place! It's worth your money.”

Excellent villa - perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house exceeded our expectations – it had everything advertised and more. The house was well equipped, nicely furnished and well maintained – thank you Rolando and Nora.

Stephen settled us in and organized two tours for us which were excellent – kayaking in the mangroves and snorkelling on Cano Island.

The pool was perfect - just steps from the patio door. We enjoyed the daily show as the iguanas paraded around the pool (and occasionally fell in but they can get themselves out). On our last day, we were joined in the pool by a water opossum!

The beach was lovely and we enjoyed watching the waves from our lounge chairs by the pool. We could easily walk to Dominical in 20-25 minutes at a leisurely pace regardless of the tide though it was a bit easier during low tide. There was seldom anyone on the beach by the villa. In fact, most of the beach to Dominical was sparsely populated.

We really enjoyed Dominical as it wasn’t packed with tourists – just surfers who we enjoyed watching as they surfed. The restaurants were seldom crowded and everything felt relaxed and welcoming. There are vendors by the beach but we were never hassled and felt free to wander about looking at their wares and chatting. One day a vendor pointed out a sloth in the trees just above the vendor’s stall.

We spent a day in Manuel Antonio and we were so relieved to return to the peace and quiet of Dominical after the hectic, noisy, commercial environment at the entrance to the park. In fact, we realized upon our return how safe and comfortable we felt in the Villa.

The restaurants that we enjoyed the most in Dominical were Café Ensuenos (order a batido frozen con aqua y banano – fantastic!), Del Mar Taco, and Café Mono.

The best feature of the villa was the location. We didn’t need to spend 15 minutes driving down a winding road from an isolated house in the hills to get to the beach or to services - we just walked on the beach to Dominical.

The only drawback was that we could hear traffic noise as the road is just behind the villa. However, it wasn’t intrusive because there was also sounds of the surf, birds and insects.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the villas #2 and #3. This was our 3rd year at the properties - and we will be back again next year! The location to town is perfect - no need for a car, just walk the beach or grab a taxi.

The homes are set up perfectly for a group - and the pools are great!

The caretakers did a wonderful job keeping the properties clean and addressed any questions we had.

Thank you Neil and all of your staff for making the trip another amazing one!! See you in 2019!

My family stayed here the week between Christmas and New Years. The house and setting exceeded our expectations. Being right on the beach was a huge plus for our girls. The beach was lovely, dramatic, and practically private. We enjoyed having our own house so much more than staying in a crowded resort with tourists everywhere. Our favorite tour was the Jungle ATV tour, an adrenaline rush for all. We also made the long journey to Corcovado, which was well worth it. We ventured out every night to different restaurants. My favorite was Sabor Espagnol in Uvita -- on a dirt road in the jungle. Citrus in Ojochal was already tasty, as was Por Que Non in Dominical. We also appreciated the security guard on duty at night. You need a 4 x 4 to get around. But if you have an big SUV, the parking is tight FYI. We really enjoyed our stay -- luxurious, relaxing and beautifully tropical.

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
