  • Beyond Expectations

    "There hasn't been a review since 2015 so I though I better write one. Looking at the pictures for Olas Hermosa when searching for a vacation place in CR I was a little sceptical if the view and place would be as nice as described. After settling I can assure you the pictures don't do this justice. The reviews from previous guests are correct - it really is hard to leave the deck (I am writing this while looking out over the palm trees sipping on an Imperial.) The studio is wonderful - everything you need to have a low-cost vacation (eating at "home" is no problem) and we were more than comfortable with three of us, even with the 36C+ heat. The beach in front of us is Dominicalito and is best enjoyed for surfing and boogie boarding at high tide (low tide exposes quite a lot of rocks but makes for nice beach combing or running). We printed out the tide table and organized our day around the tides. Other guests indicated that they could walk the beach from Dominicalito to Dominical but, looking at the rocks to the north I am not so sure how nice that walk would be. It's an easy drive but we were happiest enjoying the calmer waters at Dominicalito. We have been told that this has been one of the driest seasons ever, likely due to El Nino and there is a bit of a water issue right now. Today, if you are looking for a waterfall, Poza Azul is pretty much dry (there is a pool of water but only a trickle coming down the rocks). Instead, drive up toward San Isidro and pay the US$8 p/p to walk into Nauyaca falls - which are exactly as advertised - gorgeous and refreshing. We spotted many Toucans along the walk. Hopefully the rainy season will help replenish the water that is feeding the rivers and water table in this area. As others have reported Dave is wonderful (Deb is away in CO) and has provided us with everything to make our stay wonderful (if something isn't quite right just ask and he will take care of it) I just spent an hour this morning with Dave out on the rock outcrop on Domincalito beach swapping stories and enjoying the views that run all the way up to Manuel Antonio. We have met him almost everyday around 5 pm (beer o'clock) to share stories while cooling off in the pool. For those on their way to Olas Hermosa - you will have a great time (don't pack much more than your swim suits). If I come back to the southern cost in CR I will most definitely book into Olas Hermosa."

  • Incredible private getaway

    "My husband and I spent the last couple of days of our honeymoon here and it was INCREDIBLE! The drive up is a little intimidating at first but you get comfortable very quickly and the views on the way up make it totally worth it. Rodney was incredible with filling the fridge with necessities, scheduling whale watching and surf lessons and the beautiful flower arrangement he created for us as a "Congratulations gift". Lynne gave us every detail we needed for the area, we fell in love with this particular area after traveling up and down the coast. The house was BEAUTIFUL and so private...way bigger than expected but absolutely no complaints! We loved seeing all the critters roam around outside the house. I will definitely be staying at this peaceful getaway again very soon!"

  • An amazing experience!

    "I have been coming to visit Dominical and the Ballena Coast region for 10 years now and have stayed in quite a few homes in the area. My family and I stayed at Casa Mar y Luna for two weeks on our previous trip and enjoyed every minute of it! The house is modern and comfortable, offering some of the most incredible ocean/whitewater and sunset views in the country! Although the home is just a minute off the highway , it feels very private and you can't see or hear any neighbors below, behind or to the sides of the home. The rooms are very comfortable (4th bedroom is smaller, but nice) and the Master Suite with private balcony (the views get better as you go up) was a perfect spot for my wife and I to take refuge, while the kids played in the pool below. Most of our time was spent in the spacious, tropical outdoor patio area, swimming in the incredible infinity pool, taking in the majestic ocean views and enjoying the daily visits of monkeys and toucans in the lush stretch of jungle that comes up to the side of the patio. Jose and his wife Cecilia are very accommodating and helpful. Many of the other luxury homes I have stayed at in the past are very difficult to access (sometimes dangerous), as they are located 10-15 minutes off the highway on steep, bumpy 4x4 roads It was such a pleasure to finally stay in a home that has such easy access to beaches, surf and amenities of Dominical, yet enjoying an elevated, birds eye ocean views, privacy and cooler breezes that come with being situated up on the mountain. We will certainly be back to this home in the future!"

  • Super fun

    "Gorgeous grounds, away from everything, and so much character. We loved it here. Also, having our first breakfast groceries taken care of, umbrellas, a bag of charcoal, and a full box of dry wood for the fire pit were very nice touches. Don't miss Nauyaca waterfalls nearby! They're truly truly amazing. Before booking , you MUST know this is not going to be a luxury resort experience. There are no glass windows, only wooden panels that completely open, you pretty much live outside, in the heart of the jungle. One of the casitas has no walls at all, you're sleeping outside, with a roof over your head. It's very fun and romantic, but just to give you a sense of what it;s like, the swimming pool 8 feet away is the night home of 6 to 10 green frogs, 1 huge toad, and the cutest little baby boa (about 18 inches long). You can find them in and around the pool most nights. We found the boa chilling on the outdoor shower floor one evening. So if this doesn't sound like a fun adventure to you, you will not be happy here. A couple little things you might also know beforehand: - The beach is about 25 - 30 minutes from the house by car. - You MUST have a 4x4 to get through the 2km of rocky paths of the main road. - Wifi is slow. It works, but if you need to get work done, I found my cell phone 3G connection to be faster, so plan accordingly. - It's very difficult to get anything to dry because of humidity. One towel per guest was provided, but I wish we had a few more. - We discovered that what looked like a bookshelf between 2 doors in the main house was actually a ladder to a loft with 2 twin mattresses. Maria hadn't show that to us, or maybe I just misunderstood since I don't speak Spanish, but this was very useful since we only had one couple in our group of 6. I would definitely come back. Amazing jungle home."
