  • Beautiful View and Great Location/Needs Maintenance

    "The view from this villa is incredible!! It is conveniently located within walking distance to the beach and short drive to several restaurants in Dominical. Wildlife is abundant as we saw several howler monkeys, white faced monkeys, and toucans in the area. The drive to the villa is steep but on a very well maintained road. The villa needs some minor maintenance. The garbage disposal wasn't working, locks on the sliding glass doors didn't lock, several light bulbs blown inside and outside, dishwasher leaked, and the sink leaked when trying to drain a full sink of water. Overall, a great stay."

  • 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."

  • 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."

  • A wonderful treat!

    "As you've read in other reviews the views from the casita are spectacular and the casita itself is clean, spacious and comfortable. Diane and Peter are very gracious hosts and they have a lot of helpful information about nearby sights and restaurants ready for their guests. Strongly suggest you plan your first journey up the road for a daylight arrival - after that the road becomes a non-issue, albeit for a 4x4. Suggest, too, that you stop at one of the two markets in Dominical before heading up the road to stock up on provisions - once at Diane and Peter's you won't want to turn around and leave on errands. It is a wonderful property and we had an enjoyable three days - we'll definitely be back."
