Beautiful property, great location
"We were two families of 4 with young adult kids and stayed in the house for 12 nights.
We had a great time in the Dominical area. Many nice beaches, not crowded. We're experienced body-surfers, and we loved the waves. We did hit a bit of jelly-fish on our first day, but it passed afterwards. The whole family (kids 18 and 20) did surfing in Dominicalito and it was great. The waves can be impressive and you have to watch out for currents, but we've seen worst in places in Mexico. The people are generally friendly (better than in San Jose). The cost of living is about the same as in Canada, but of course, we were often getting the tourist price. Many fruit stands, extremely tasty. The area is not too touristy yet - perfect for us.
The house is nice and very spacious. The view is fantastic over the jungle and the ocean. The animals are nearby; we saw white-faced and howler monkeys, as well as various types of insects and birds on the property land, including two types of toucans directly from the pool. There is a nice trail to a waterfall on the property. We took a dip in the water there.
The main problem we had with the house was that one of the main doors could not be locked. Aside from that, a few minor glitches, but nothing important. There's obviously some insects and gekos in and around the house, but it's manageable and to be expected in the wild.
You need a 4x4 to ride around or at least a vehicle high above ground to get to the property.
The Wi-Fi worked fine and the water was good. The pool was fantastic.
We had 2 people with gluten allergies in the group and managed to find stores and restaurants around that had gluten-free products.
All in all, a great adventure which we highly recommend."
