We had a big group of couples and babies and all enjoyed our stay at this beach front house in Dominical. The location was perfect - close to town but secluded with practically our own private beach. The boys in the group enjoyed surfing at Dominical and Dominicalito beach and we all loved having a private pool. The caretakers and property managers were excellent and made sure we were well taken care of. I would highly recommend this house to a large group or family and hope to return some day!
My wife and I stayed here for 5 nights and it was a vacation of a lifetime. The ocean was just a few steps away and we are still amazed how warm it was. The home was very accommodating and spacious and we loved the private pool. We walked to breakfast a few times which was a beautiful 10-15 min walk on the beach. There are also many restaurants within a short driving distance. We are looking forward to our next vacation here.
Went to this great property with some family and some friends. We had kids as young as 4 and adults as old as 65. The setting is great. The grounds are well maintained as well as the pool. The beach is literally out your front door, just a few yards away. The plants and animal life around the grounds are just the kind of thing you hope to see in a tropical getaway. It is located in a quiet out of the way location with small town amenities close by. The home itself is beautifully done, well decorated and comfortable with an obvious thought for the locale. The pool was great to have when you're trying to beat the heat and the noonday tropical sun is too much at the beach. We also found it a great jumping off point for lots of local attractions and parks. It gave us the chance to have a more local and less touristy experience. We stayed for a week and created a lifetime of memories.
We rented Caballitos de Mar houses #1 and #2 for the weekend and had an amazing time. The houses are spacious, very well distributed and fully equipped. The pool and the beach a few steps away make unnecessary going anywhere else. Definitely the definition of paradise!
Playa Dominical and the nearby coastal town of Uvita have loads of restaurants featuring local flavors and casual dining. The variety of eateries bring out the international diversity of people who have found their way to this fantastic, tropical beach town. The community of Dominical is very welcoming and the authentic Costa Rican, Pura Vida vibe abounds. There are no casinos, high rise hotels, or fancy nightclubs; but Dominical does have a great night life based on people coming together to eat, drink, dance, and socialize in the casual atmosphere of this south Pacific beach town. The place has something surprising and pleasant for people of every age.
The home and surrounding environment is very family and child friendly, designed to make it easy for people to spend time together in paradise. It is important to remember as with all Pacific beaches and resorts, young children should be supervised while playing in the ocean or pool. The beach at low tide is expansive and inviting. Sunrises and sunsets are often spectacular. You will find much of what you have dreamed of Costa Rica, right here at Caballitos del Mar (Little horses of the Sea)..
