My family personally goes down there every year to make sure house is in tip top shape. You will get your own personal concierge and my manager takes an active role and is always available and well as guests can always personally email or call me and get an instant response. Don't make the mistake of picking a home run by a management company that will not available when you need them or that looks good in pictures but is a 5-10 minute drive up a bumpy road. Villa Alegria offers an incredible value and service that is hard to beat and my family and my team always work to provide the best value to our guests!

Ocean Front, Mediterranean style Villa with dramatic views, features four spacious master suites all with ocean views. Three of the en suite bathrooms feature double showers with windows facing the Pacific and the fourth, an ultra private modern glass shower. All suites offer outside access, three of which have ocean facing glass French doors with screens and the fourth with a full wall of french casement windows to allow one to fully enjoy the breeze and relaxing sounds of the waves crashing below.

Nestled into the mountainside under plush rain forest canopy, Villa Alegría is one of the very few properties available which offers both the privacy and views you desire and the close proximity to amenities and ease of access. 200 meters (220 yards) down the mountain, you will find access to Roca Verde restaurant and beach, as well as access to the main thoroughfare which runs throughout southern Costa Rica. It is only a five minute walk from Villa Alegría or a quick two minute drive for you to dip your toes into the warm Pacific waters. Dominical Beach, a world famous surfing location, is only one kilometer (less than a mile) from the house and the beaches of Dominicalito, Playa Hermosa, and the extraordinary Playa Ventanas in Ojochal are all easily accessible by car. The elevation of the property provides the perfect balance of amazing views, privacy and access, ensuring your experience will be unforgettable!

Bask in the gorgeous Costa Rican sunshine on our extended patio or cool off in the beautiful infinity pool overlooking the ocean and tropical landscaping. You will be amazed by the wildlife! Our guests regularly report seeing butterflies, hummingbirds, toucans, coatis, agoutis, huge iguanas and even sloths in the area! Locally handcrafted benches on the covered patio are the perfect place to enjoy the spectacular sunsets and outdoor dining furniture is available for your use. Villa Alegría also features a beautiful double hammock where you can snuggle with your loved ones or relax and read a book from our library while listening to the waves.

Villa Alegría's four spacious Master Suites all have ocean views and en suite bathrooms. Three of the bedrooms are outfitted with king beds, the fourth bedroom features a queen bed and all 4 bedrooms include futons for seating or extra guests and air mattresses are also available if needed. We are a family friendly house and also offer a Pack n' Play for infants and toddlers, as well as an infant bathing tub for your use. All rooms have spacious closets and both ceiling and personal fans, along with individual air conditioning units if you prefer. We always encourage our guests to take advantage of the very special location and let the sounds of the ocean waves lull you to sleep and help us to protect Costa Rica's pristine environment by keeping energy use low, but know that even the most adventurous travelers sometimes need a break from the tropical heat!

Special amenities include books and games for your friends and family to enjoy, a personal concierge with over 10 years of experience arranging and assisting our guests' ideal vacations, washer and dryer on site, and a United States based VPN, which will allow you to access all streaming and subscription services which are otherwise blocked in Costa Rica. (Netflix, Hulu, Spotify, Pandora, etc.) If requested, owner can reassign the VPN to your country of origin during your stay so that you may access country specific internet services. The property has also recently had over $50,000 in upgrades!

The rental price include professional cleaning before and after your stay, but housekeeping services during your visit are available for a small fee. We can also arrange chef prepared meals, tours, adventures and excursions, transportation to and from the airport, and most anything else your heart desires!

Villa Alegría is our dream home and we want your visit to be just as special and amazing as our time in this beautiful country, so please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or suggestions. Pura Vida!

About Todd Harris

My name is Todd Harris, me and my wife have been lucky enough to buy our Costa Rica beach dream house. We were fortunate to give birth to our second child in July right here at Villa Alegria and it was an amazing experience. We live at this house for some of the year and will let renters enjoy this fabulous house and location when we are spending time elsewhere. We are very responsive to calls and emails and are determined to make the experience as easy and enjoyable for our special guests.

Todd Harris purchased this villa in 2014

Why Todd Harris chose Puntarenas

House is great for renters as 4 large bedrooms each with their own bathroom. House is right off main road and you can easily walk down to a secluded beach. Incredible location and views are awesome. Me and my wife and our property manager with 10 years experience in Dominical are determined to give our guests the best experience possible.

What makes this villa unique

Within walking distance to beach and main street in Dominical, yet still high enough to get amazing ocean views and hear and see the wondrous Pacific Ocean. Owners live here part of the year so house is fully equipped with comforts of home. Many books and board games here for you to come and enjoy your relaxing time and getaway with family and friends.

Fantastic Costa Rican Vacation - Perfect Location and Property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been traveling to Costa Rica since the early 1980's and this was the best experience yet (and there have been many, many good ones)! The Dominical location is great as it is south enough to miss the crowds, but not too far to be classified as remote.

The house and infinity pool were just fantastic - everything was in great condition, modern and well kept. We visited when the temperatures were in the 90's so the pool was used constantly. The 4 bedrooms had both fans and air conditioning that worked great. All bedrooms had very modern bathrooms that were clean and modern.

The Owner, Todd Harris was very responsive and helpful with anything that you need. In addition, the caretaker was also very helpful and spoke excellent English.

If you're in a group, this is a perfect house for you, whether a close family or several families or couples.

Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thanks Todd, Dominical does provide a unique and awesome travel experience even for those who have been to Costa Rica numerous times. It is close enough to Manuel Antonio to do any tourist activity you desire but remote enough to get a feel for the unique and beautiful jungle environment and a true local feel. I find those who have been to Costa Rica before tend to really appreciate my house and the exemplary service we provide the most! I am glad you guys had an amazing time, Marlon and I do our best to give first rate customer service and those who have been to Costa Rica before understand the difference a responsive owner and house manager can do versus management companies who have many properties to attend to. Hope you can come again! Thanks

Haven in the hills

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Villa Alegría. The house was very comfortable and spacious and is every bit as beautiful in real life as it is in the photos online, perhaps more so! The location was perfect. It is a little bit of a walk in to Dominical but you can get to the closest beach in 10 mins or so (on foot). The views are amazing from the pool area and it was quite a temptation to park yourself there all day! Lots to do in the area if you like to keep active. Dominical was also an interesting town to hang out in. Very laid back, lots of young backpackers, surfers etc. Hope to get back there some day and would love to stay again at Villa Alegría.

Modern home, very clean. All that you need for a wonderful vacation in Dominical

  • 5 of 5

Four large bedrooms each with its own bathroom, some with double showers. Also a good sized infinity pool, with outdoor shower. Outdoor dinner seating for a large group by the pool.

Beautiful view of the ocean with the sounds of the crashing waves lulling you to sleep. Large gathering area on the first floor around a well stocked kitchen. Had a wonderful time.

Beautiful Home In A Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

My family consisting of 3 couples stayed at Villa Algeria for 10 days. The home located on the side of a hill was spacious and beautiful overlooking the ocean. Every room was beautifully decorated and comfortable. The vila was equipped with everything you would need for the beach and relaxing at home. Dominical was the perfect small town for us with great beaches for surfing and plenty of bars, restaurants, and shops. If we weren't exploring the area, we were sitting in the pool at the villa which is surrounded by beautiful gardens and trees watching the sunset. We all agreed that we would go back!

January 2017

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4 couples stayed for 9 nights late in January. The weather was perfect every day - upper 80s, not too humid, bright sun and no rain. The house is very nice, and the layout provided great common areas for us to enjoy, as well as private bedroom suites for everyone to resort to. The pool and deck are awesome - we enjoyed a lot of time here, and the sunsets are great from this vantage point. The driveway is steep, but it's paved and in good condition. We had a couple of minor issues with the house during our stay which Marlon quickly addressed. We were very pleased with the level of service and attention he provided. We loved the area. Dominical and Uvita both have a relaxed vibe - everyone we met seemed happy to see us and helpful. The beaches are beautiful - during the week they are nearly deserted, with a few more locals on the weekends. Prices for everything were reasonable. We used the window bars and locks as Marlon suggested - we didn't experience any crime, and didn't see anyone who appeared threatening - actually, we experienced quite the opposite - the people we saw were pleasant and generous. We loved this place!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Marc, really happy you guys had such a great time! You are so right about the great vibe in the area and the amazingly nice people who live there. Besides the incredible scenery, the people are my favorite part of spending time down there and what makes this area of Costa Rica so special. As you mentioned, it is really one of the few places you will ever go where you can have an incredibly beautiful and scenic beach all to yourself. The issue you mentioned involved the pool pump but Marlon was able to come over right away and was smart enough to keep an extra capacitor at the house so he could fix it that night. You really don’t know what a difference having a great manager like Marlon makes until an issue comes up and he can solve it right away where as you might wait days or never get it resolved at other houses in the area. Again, thank for staying and hope to see you guys again!

Beautiful home in the perfect area

  • 5 of 5

Villa Alegria was such a perfect home for the 8 of us. Spacious with a beautiful pool and stunning views. Todd the owner was very accommodating and easy to deal with and Marlon, the concierge, made every aspect of the trip very easy. We loved the home and area and will be back!

Thanks again Todd and Marlon!
