  • Amazing experience with friends at Villa Ambiente

    "This was our third time to the Dominical area and we could not have been more thrilled with our stay at Villa Ambiente. We were there from the week of February 4-11, 2017 and had 6 people total staying at the house, all adults. Let me just say, this place is large and impressive in person! Pictures do not do it justice. With 6 people, we barely made a dent in the place and felt like we did not even have a chance to fully use or explore all the areas of the property. I think the aspect I was most impressed with was the overall cleanliness. Everything was very well kept with the property, from the rooms to the kitchen area, and especially the outside pool area. No chipping paint, no worn out furniture, etc. The common areas were great for our friends to share meals and drinks, or hang out by the pool, but at anytime when someone needed a break or wanted to relax alone they could head back to their room or private patio and have total privacy. Also, there is enough separation from the pool area to the rooms, that if someone wanted to head to bed early while everyone else stayed awake, they were not bothered by the music or voices, so this is a great place if a family has children that need to go down early while the adults stay awake. All the amenities worked as expected. Internet was adequate and the wi-fi worked in all areas of the pool and rooms, some spots a little weaker than others, but overall very good for Costa Rica. Lastly, location. Because Villa Ambiente is high in the mountains, the scenery is great. Much of the ocean and coast can be seen which offers great views. The sunset views were especially nice. Most nights before dinner, we spent them sitting down at the pool bar having a cocktail before leaving. Also, due to the remote location, it offers great privacy. Very little traffic near or around the property. Because of the location, the road is quite long and rocky to access the property. If you are a frequent visitor to this area, you already know this is somewhat common, but make sure you have an adequate 4WD vehicle because it really is needed to access this Villa! 5 Stars overall! Kudos to the staff and owners. I would visit again in a heartbeat with another group of friends! If you want to see a video of the property, here is one I put together during our stay. Helps to give a much better visual of the property! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T9s7cJlRBHg&t=13s"

  • Super Home for a Great Value

    "We had a wonderful vacation in Cascada Azul and was surprised at what a nice home it was for the price. Beautiful home, fully equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, high quality linens and towels... I could go on and on. The owner was great and wonderful to deal with. The house and grounds were well cared for. When not dining out, we ate all our meals outside under the fan-filled covered patio taking in the gorgeous view. The days we spent at the villa, we were in the pool from dawn to dusk; the temperature was perfect. The beaches are fabulous and the water was clear and surprisingly warm. We have highly recommended this property to friends and relatives. Cascada Azul in Costa Rica is our new favorite destination. We will come back!"

  • Holiday family vacation

    "It's not easy to find a house with a pool on the beach but caballitos del mar is it. The house is very spacious and sits just back from the beach near Dominical. There are three houses in the spot but with some careful landscaping you hardly notice the other two. The beach is just outside of the back garden across a small flat area which we later realized is a dirt road allowing access to the beach to locals. It was clear from the description that the beach is public so we weren't surprised that there were people there and with the landscaping you wouldn't know it unless you were down on the beach. The beach is beautiful, very wide and with large rocks that allow for pools of water at low tide. The beach goes right up to the dirt road and the high tide does too, so there is never any 'soft sand', it's always the semi wet sand of low tide which is why it would have been nice to have some beach chairs. It's not really a spot where you'd throw down a towel and sit for an hour (it's too hard). But it was great for yoga on the beach, long walks and jogs. The pool is terrific, but lacks enough seating for 6 (the house sleeps 6 at least) and therefore you can't be comfortable all around the pool. The outdoor table and chairs are not at all comfortable for any length of time (they're wood dining chairs with no cushion). The ONLY down side was the lapse in comfort as above mentioned (pool and beach chairs) and for example the bedside lamps in the master bedroom don't work at all. They've been jury-rigged so that you have to get out of bed to unplug the lamp to turn it off or on. This could be so easily rectified with some folding lounge chairs or cushions and a small investment in the furnishings. The beds were comfortable which is not as easy as it sounds. It may be the first time I find that in a rental house. Neil and Stephen were great. Very reactive and there to greet us and see us off (even at 6:30 am). There are numerous restaurants around and the recommendations from Neil and Stephen were all good. The activities they organized (snorkeling, horseback ride to the falls and kayaking) were all REALLY great. They recommended we get a car service from the airport in San Jose and use Omar at SOLID car rental for our car. GREAT choice. Solid delivered and picked up the car to our door and the 3+hour drive to/from the airport was taken care of. All in all an amazing time and impressive service."
