The house rules are first and most important to enjoy and relax and take in all the incredible aromas from the beautifully landscaped gardens and the solitude of the peaceful surroundings. To help you to enjoy your experience at Liquid Magic we have a few suggestions. Please shut all windows and doors when the AC is on and turn it off when leaving to help us conserve Costa Rica's precious resources. We ask that no glass is ever by the pool. We understand that accidents happen and it is easier to avoid the situation completely. A full set of plastic plates, cups, etc is available in the rancho. We have a kitchen available to our guests that must be kept clean after each use. Most of all we would like each guest to enjoy their stay to the fullest. If you have additional questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask!
The only down side to our stay was that we only had one night here! What a beautiful space Caroline and Eugene have. The room (and the massive bathroom) was incredibly clean and spacious. We loved relaxing on the deck in the hammock with our books and dipping into the pool after our surf lesson (which Caroline kindly recommended and booked for us). The breakfast was also delicious and a perfect spot for toucan watching!! Thank you so much, we hope to visit again (for longer) in the future.
Our stay at Liquid Magic Surf Resort was really a pleasure. The houses where clean and cozy. Also the region is wonderful.
Thank you Eugene and Caroline for welcoming us and for your help.
Eugene and Caroline were great hosts and the rooms were absolutely perfect. The location is up a hill, away from the street and the beach, but its remoteness makes it the ideal escape. There are tons of birds and other wildlife that can be seen from the front porch or sitting by the pool. The room itself was large and spacious, with working AC and a huge bathroom. My two girlfriends and I shared the space with no problem at all. Caroline was super friendly and shared her cell phone with us whenever we needed it (no wifi yet), called us taxis, and suggested great things to do. Breakfast was simple and fresh. We really enjoyed our time here!
All I can say is wow! What an amazing place Eugene and Caloline have. We had the most relaxing, beautiful, amazing stay. The morning breakfasts were delicious. I have never seen a cleaner pool! It was SO refreshing to take an afternoon dip in the pool to cool off. Every morning and afternoon you can here the howler monkeys, birds and animals everywhere! I am so happy Eugene and Caloline are kind enough to share this little gem in Dominical. Our spanish isn't the best, so they would always be more then helpful getting us around. I can't thank them enough for making our trip to Costa Rica perfect! I will be forever grateful!
Eugene and Caroline were great hosts and the cabin was exactly as described.
This was our first planned stop and first AirBnB experience, and was a great intro to both Costa Rica and Airbnb.
Other reviewers mention that you need a 4x4 to get here; in the dry season, I disagree. It is up a long somewhat bumpy driveway, but it's nothing that a 2WD vehicle couldn't manage. Maybe the rainy season would be different.
Other tips for the area: you pretty much need a car to do much of anything here. With a car, there's a lot of beaches and restaurants nearby, many of which have amazing perches up on the mountainside so they have great vista for the sunset. The place basically right next door (first place just south of the location) had a great deck and view, and the sea bass my wife ordered was one of the best meals we had all week. Eugene and Caroline can recommend some other places as well.
To find the place, their directions are great, but overall you really want to have a GPS. You can rent them from the car rental place at about $10/day, or bring you Garmin from home and install the Cenrut (free) maps. Cenrut isn't as good as the expensive paid-for maps, but it's way good enough to get you around. With those maps, and the GPS coordinates of your planned stops pre-programmed, you have a pretty easy time of it. This place is in the area of Costa Rica with good paved roads; other areas of the country are much more challenging, but Cenrut still has enough of them to work out.
Also note that the listing says sleeps 6 with 2 bathrooms. That's both cabins combined. The king bed cabin we stayed (which has an awesome bathroom and is great overall) has a king bed, a day bed, and a trundle bed that pulls out from the daybed, so it's luxurious for a couple, and probably sleeps 4/1 bath. We didn't go inside the other cabin, but that's probably where the other 2 people and 1 bath are.
There is a usable kitchen in the place, but it's not right in your cabin. We never used it. The cabin has a good sized mini fridge; we used that, ate breakfasts (fresh fruit, toast and coffee) at Liquid and ate everything else out.
Very enjoyable experience and we'd happily go back!
Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen! Der Garten duftet, die Brüllaffen brüllen (leiser als befürchtet), Kolibris, eine dicke Kröte, Tukane...aber erstaunlicherweise und zu unserer großen Freude keine Mücken. Die Gastgeber wohnen im Nebenhaus und wären jederzeit erreichbar gewesen. So hatten wir alles für uns und konnten doch Kontakt aufnehmen, wenn wir etwas brauchten oder wissen wollten. Wir können diesen wunderbaren Ort wärmstens empfehlen.
