About the property

Two Bedrooms With Pool, Great Ocean View And Walking Distance To The Ocean & Mor

Canto del Mar is noted for having an excellent location with stunning ocean views overlooking Playa Dominicalito including a private patio pool. The expansive ocean view includes some of the best characteristics in the country looking out to Punta Dominical, watching surfers enjoying the dependable white-water playground, Tree Island in the distance and the entire Playa Dominicalito Bay. The well-maintained 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath Villa has a fully functional kitchen and dining area including a large outside covered deck for outside dinning, afternoon cocktails, gorgeous sunsets and a perfect place to remember the day as nighttime arrives. With plenty of outdoor seating and dining space plus a pass-through window from the kitchen to the patio, it is perfect for entertaining and spending time outside. Additionally, each bedroom has its own small balcony and bathroom plus there is a small common area downstairs. The two master bedroom suites are equally sized with a queen in one bedroom and two twins in the other. The Villa comfortably fits one family or 2 couples and has private parking with 24-hour security. The open floor plan upstairs with tiled floors and high ceiling includes a couple ceiling fans to augment the tropical breezes should you decide not to use the air conditioner. The bedrooms and laundry are located on the lower level separated by a small common area .

Every room has large glass sliding doors to enjoy the view and the ocean breeze keeps all rooms comfortable so that the A/C is usually not required. A fully equipped Kitchen with an electric stove, Self cleaning oven, Stainless refrigerator, Microwave, Coffee maker, and all your basic cooking pans and utensils allows for staying home to enjoy the property. With a full size washer and dryer you can pack light. If you choose to go out for meals, there are several of the finest local restaurants just minutes away. To start their day out right, many guests like to walk the beach to Por Que No for breakfast. The Villa is fully furnished and includes cable TV along with dependable cable WiFi internet. You can be in close touch with family and friends back home to torture them with photos of your daily adventures. At night the prevailing cooler breezes are constant, originating from the highest peaks in the country located inland from Dominical. The trees around the villa are visited by Toucans and the occasional sloth while Monkey’s howl in the distance. The excellent location allows you to walk a short distance to the beach, a local waterfall/swimming hole and a primary jungle hike located on the top ridge adjacent to the property. Easy directions from SJO are provided and I can assist with your transportation needs including car rental, van service and suggesting regional flight arrangements. If you have several groups, we are able to provide additional nearby villas with or without pools. May consider 4 adults and up to two children depending on ages. Ask us about discounts for reservations less than 20 days out. Our daily rates are reduced for longer stays. Want to stay for 3 months or more, let’s talk.

Relaxing Villa with Majestic Views

  • 5 of 5

Great views from pretty much everywhere, nice indoor and outdoor spaces with your own grill and private pool.

Great owner who is easy to work with. Will definitely stay here again.

Note: I recommend 4x4 for this property and to explore this part of Costa Rica.

Beautiful home with the best view!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 14 y/o son and I stayed at this villa for five days, and loved every minute of it. It's convenient to the Dominicalito beach, and close to Dominical, with good restaurants, surfing lessons, and another good beach. Dave was very attentive. We had a problem with the air conditioner in one room, and were amazed that a repair person came out almost immediately to fix it. The recommendations in the villa's binder were spot-on, and we recommend:

* Manuel Antonio, about an hour away

* Sunset Surf for surfing lessons

* Fuego Brew Co.

* Phat Noodle

* Reptilandia for snakes, turtles, lizards

* Pozo Azul waterfall

* The Jolly Roger for burgers and wings

When we return to Costa Rica, we hope the villa is available again.

Nice home; very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

Nice home; very comfortable; grill worked well; pool was fun; a/c could have been stronger in 1 bedroom - but was sufficient. Washer/Dryer did the job. A few additional condiments in the kitchen would be helpful to other guests (and a spare supply of toilet paper upon arrival). Would stay here again.

Breathtaking view!!

  • 5 of 5

The Dominicalito Beach was great and so close! We went to the beach to swim and surf everyday. We found the patio was our families favorite space to spend most days and eat our meals. Then a dip or 2 in the pool to cool off. The view from the minute you enter the front door to every room is spectacular. Really ever detail of the villa was great. Also, you can see the ocean from every room! The view of Dominicalito never got old! Watching the surfers, fishing boats, paragliders, birds and the nice tropical breeze was wonderful. A toucan came right to the tree just off the patio one morning. My son and I saw a monkey right by villa on are way down to beach the second morning. A car with 4x4 is essential, the road is very steep and rough. It was a short walk down to the beach, but the uphill return would be very hot & difficult for most. The villa complex is built on a steep hill above the main coastal highway. There are great restaurants & very nice grocery store close by. Our favorite restaurant was Roca Verde because they had live music Friday nights. It was a lot of fun for the kids and us! Por Que No was also great for sunset sitting at the bar. Best dinner by far was Ylang Ylang in nearby Ojochal. Schedule an early AM nature hike at Hacienda Baru. We saw toucans, sloths, monkeys, wild pigs, lizards, and a variety of other birds. Also, the horse ride to the Nauyaca waterfall was amazing and a lot of fun!

Owner's Response: It was great hosting Mike and his family for their visit to Dominical. As the manager of this property, one of the major benefits is being the concierge and making sure that our guests do not miss activities the area has to offer that are a good match for them. Not everyone wants to repel down a series of six waterfalls with the last one being 85 feet tall. With so many different tours and places of interest, each guest has so much to choose from and it becomes difficult to narrow it down to a few, including which places not to miss for dinner or breakfast. Mike and his family did not let any grass grow under their feet and managed to have a pretty full schedule. They were even able to sneak a few work hours in using the high speed cable internet which they said was a must before they secured the reservation. Another benefit is some of our guests spend a little of their vacation time with us when we invite them to the Secret Beach and they in turn invited Deb and I to join them for dinner at a local soda on their final night here. Meeting people from all over the world with such interesting backgrounds continues to be one of our favorite reasons for living in Costa Rica and “working” to make sure our guests have a great time. We hope they take advantage of our return guest discount we offer or anyone of their friends that mention their name. Hurry back Mike.

Car: necessary

Dominical is located on the Pacific Coast is a favorite destination for surfers and visitors searching for an genuine Costa Rican experience. Whale watching from the patio is seasonal but with a sharp eye has great rewards. Dominical is considered the gateway to the Southern Pacific region including the Osa Peninsula, documented by National Geographic as the most bio diverse region on Earth with tropical jungles teeming with exotic wildlife and foliage. Dominical is a beach town full of opportunities for surfing, nearby sport fishing, mangrove tours, white-water rafting and many other activities unique to the area. The landscape changes dramatically, as the mountainous rainforest meets the ocean for a truly visually dramatic display. It is a great place to relax and watch the view as the clouds, varying tides and even the changes in the angle of the sun provide an ever-changing panorama vista for your senses to enjoy. Highlights of the area include nearby Manuel Antonio National Park with its abundance of monkeys with lots of other land, airborne and marine life; Marino Ballena National Marine Park and Caño Island for snorkel and diving experiences
