  • Heaven on Earth

    "The word paradise only touches on describing this magical place. This breezy house of mahogany, awash with the scent of tropical flowers, this is the stuff dreams are made of. The abundant sunshine, the private beach just steps away, the chatter of wild parakeets that wake you in the morning, the breathtaking sunsets to wish you a goodnight, the magnificent tropical storms, the overwhelming sense of peace. All this and so much more make this place a true heaven on earth. I stayed for two weeks with my 6 year old son. It was an enchanted journey that we’ll never forget. Alex and Mary were the most gracious of hosts who went over and above to make our stay unforgettable. I can’t recommend this beautiful beach house (or these people) more. This was not a vacation for us but rather a new family tradition!"

  • A DREAM!

    "The home was absolutely perfect for our family and friends to stay in! We ABSOLUTELY love Dominical and cannot wait to come back!!! The town was loaded with cute restaurants, cafes, shops and bars. We frequented Cafe Mono Congo and love it! Location wise, it would have definitely been A WALK to get to the beach and amenities, but do-able (although we drove every time). I do not think you could get up the driveway without a 4 wheel drive vehicle as our neighbors had to park at the bottom of the hill and walk up because their van wouldn't make it up. The house greeted us with LOTS of bottled water and a plate that was FULL of fresh fruit. It was extremely clean and well maintained. We were met down the road and we followed the host to the home and she showed us around and how to use everything. Left her cell number in case we had any questions or problems that arose while we were there. It was very hot and humid while we were there so the outdoor shower and dip pool was constantly in use! There was a family of iguanas who lived in the front yard and kept my girls very occupied! The view was spectacular and patio/furniture was where we spent most of our time. We will definitely come back and definitely stay here again! Without a doubt we would recommend people to stay here!"

  • Truly an Oasis!

    "Both your “Labours of Love” are more stunning than any photograph can do them justice! We stayed in both. The artful décor and design of both houses is a credit to your talent and taste. The proximity to the beach while ensconced in a lush tropical private paradise is truly Pura Vida, the best of both worlds. The shared pool and wee waterfall are a much-needed refreshment at this very hot time of the year and the ever-present iguanas and squirrels provided much entertainment. You seem to attract the right guests because both sets of folks who occupied the “other” house while we were there for five days were delightful and fun while never being obtrusive. We liked the raised open spaciousness of Del Mar but concluded that we liked Del Rio for its tucked-away privacy and front-door access to the oft-used pool. Jan, your friend and property manager, is wonderfully accommodating and knowledgeable and provided many very helpful tips about the area. Both Jennifer and I would heartily recommend your idyllic retreat to anyone wanting a taste of Pura Vida! Warmest regards, The Snowbirds"

    "Case de Sophie was an incredible get away home. For a gal that likes to cook, it was so great having such an intuitive kitchen- felt right at home! The private pool was lovely and the upstairs outdoor dining area was a real treat. From the dining hop off into the hammock to relax and food coma your way into a nice sleep. The beach is walking distance from the house. I have seen many beaches but this one stole my heart. The sand is like cocoa bean powder and the water is so clear and warm. Standing in the ocean and looking into the land you can't help but feel as if you were in a painting. The tropical trees surround the beach and the panoramic view is absolutely striking. Beautiful in the most surreal yet peaceful way. Thank you so much for this wonderful experience! The whole experience was wonderful and I surely plan to return to Casa de Sophie- a Costa Rican paradise."
