Recent Dominical reviews

  • Property's Quality Was Matched By AMAZING Owner and Property Manager

    "This is not our ordinary VRBO stay. In fact, I rarely write reviews though I value them greatly; I need to be better! All that said, we are from the western US and had a trip planned to Dominical, Costa Rica. The Thursday before our scheduled departure (just 3 days), I received a troubling phone call that due to unforeseen circumstances, our original property would no longer be available. We went into panic mode and decided we didn't need to be RIGHT ON the beach. So we opened our search up to those homes NEARBY the beach. This was the BEST BAD NEWS OF ALL TIME! We emailed Bruce to inquire about availbility. Sparing you the details, him and his property manager Tom, bent over backwards to arrange all of our details. Tom checked on us regular while we were there. Bruce checked on us via email and wanted to make sure we had all we needed. And that was just the manager side. This property is BREATHTAKING!! The jungle, the ocean, the pool, the home itself --- we use VRBO frequently, travel a fair amount --- and the combination of it all is UNSURPASSED BY ANYPLACE WE'VE EVER BEEN! As long as one understands a few things: 1 - This is the jungle, there will be bugs and geckos and things. Nothing to even worry over as long as you know they come with the territory. 2 - Houses need repairs sometimes - the AC unit went out while we were there -- which underscores the AWESOME managers -- they had it fixed PROMPTLY!!! 3 - You will not have WalMarts, or Costcos, or even a neighborhood market that you're accustomed to. That's what we wanted, though. Crowded little non-ac shops. Side of the road fruit trucks, etc. 4 - The drive up to the house is an adventure in and of itself! It's literally only 5 minutes up the dirt road -- but it is UP THE DIRT ROAD! My kids liked it better than the Indiana Jones ride at Disneyland! All part of the experience:) Summary - I wish I could give this a 10-star review. Our absolute favorite family vacation in 18 years of marriage and raising a family!!!"

  • Wonderful sunsets in Domenical

    "Perfect house for a two week getaway. Beautiful views of the Pacific from dawn til dusk, , from both the front porch and the small but inviting pool. Spacious home fully equipped. Eddy Lizard (a twelve inch iguana) and his extended family roam the grounds. We loved walking down to the beach (the hill is a challenge) and then into Domenical less than two miles away along the Pacific. The culinary scene in Domenical was surprisingly good last year and has continued to improve."

  • Exceeded Expectations! Loved your house!

    "This was a fantastic staging area for all of our adventures in Dominical Area. This was our first Trip to CR so we didn't really know what to expect. We have a local friend who recommended Polaris, The owners met him at his bar; The Rum Bar in Dominical (Stop By and ask for Fun Dave). The Goods: Beds were so comfortable, we could have slept longer each day but the jungle wanted us up! The location of the house is right in the middle of the jungle: Property line/Jungle. Full of howlers (saw one in a tree) toucans, green parrot looking birds, frogs, lizards, and spiders! The kitchen provided to be reliable, modern, and adequately stocked for cooking in (and you will want to do this! CR is so much more expensive than I thought). The pool looks small from the pictures but it was a great size to cool off in. The road up to the property can be a bit sketchy. you definitely need a rental to get here and you definitely need a 4x4. I live in Idaho and this reminds me of a forest service road. (I loved it!). Bathrooms were modern and big, like showering in the middle of the Jungle (our stay was in the Dry season but there were no water limitations here, like our second house in Manuel Antonio. Bonus we didn't realize). WiFi was a bit weak, we would lose service quite often, kind of need it if you don't turn on an international calling plan. That was about the only thing I would recommend be improved. While here we took advantage of several waterfalls close by. Several Beaches: Playa Ventana (pipa fria?), Verde, Dominicalito... Nuyaca Falls we took on horseback, that was a pretty neat way to travel! Jolly Rogers is crazy close for being up a road in the jungle! Tortilla flats in Dominical was fantastic, as was Rio Lindo Hotel bar and Pool. I don't know when we will be back to CR, but when we do, I wouldn't hesitate a second to stay here again! Pura Vida you guys!"
