what a wonderful place we really loved our stay here.
Villa Pacifica is an absolutely wonderful home for a large group. We were 15 people total (9 adults, one teen, 5 kids) and we had plenty of room. The house is kept very clean, the views and wildlife are gorgeous. Kelley was very helpful organizing travel from the airport, a rental van, excursions to waterfall/yoga/surfing/zip line. We also recommend having cooks for at least a meal or two - they are gracious and the food is delicious. On site security guard made us feel extra safe - we only wish our Spanish speaking was up to par so we could chat with him more!
Although it is a bit of a long walk, you can make it to the town of Dominical by foot (15 minutes?), also a small market to buy most food or alcohol is down the road. It's a tough little hike back up the driveway to the house - so be prepared. If you are in good shape and don't mind the heat, you will be fine!
Gorgeous sunsets, sounds of the waves crashing, iguanas in the trees, blossoming flowers all around. Villa Pacifica is a total treat.
We had an incredible experience at Villa Pacifica. The house and property are even more beautiful than what you can see from the pictures. We had a group of 16 and Kelley really went out of her way to help us book adventures, meals, transportation, etc. She provides her guests with a cell phone preprogrammed with her number, the number of a grocery store that delivers food and a few taxis. In addition she helped us get our large group booked at a variety of local adventures (ADR Adventure Park is a must) and even arranged for a yoga instructor to come to the house for a sunset class for us. Kelley truly couldn't have been more helpful.
The neighborhood, which consists of a few other upscale homes, is very quiet and felt very safe. A security guard constantly monitors the area and helps with trash disposal and other little tasks. The house also comes with the option of having private cooks come prepare meals for you. We would strongly recommend taking advantage of Tuto's services. We were consistently blown away by the quality of the food they provided, all for $15-20 per person.
Can't really say enough good things about Villa Pacifica. Will definitely be booking with Kelley again next time we're in Costa Rica!
The main picture on the listing was of a porch with red tiles..this is not the same home on the main picture as the porch is actually white tiles as shown in the extra pics in the listing. Additionally, the neighbors trees have now overgrown what view of the ocean there was. If you want to book a place near the ocean that has zero view..this is your place. The interior of the home is well kept and comfortable but could not overcome the lack of a view.
Kelley was an exceptional host, and the villa was amazing. Has literally everything I could have asked for and more. The pictures don't do it justice - as unbelievable as that seems. Dominical was just the right size town for our group. Plenty to do: surfing, yoga, highly recommend the Nauyaca Waterfall hike (Kelley can help), ziplining, couple good restaurants, etc. Kitchen and outdoor BBQ were great for large group dinners. Pool is huge. I could go on, but you get the idea.
Unfortunately we did not meet Kelly as we picked up the keys from the security guard but the cottage was as beautiful as we hoped. We had been staying in an ecolodge in the rainforest for several days so the luxurious bathrooms and bedrooms were a fantastic treat! The road is quite rough to get up to in our little hire car and the ocean view has now been overgrown by next doors plants but nonetheless a wonderful final night in Costa Rica.
We stayed for 2 nights in Vista Encantada and Kelley was an amazing host helping us with recommendations on the area. The house is perfect for 6 people with an amazing view from the terrace and pool.
Huset såväl som grannskapet var över förväntan. Belysning och ac var påslaget när vi anlände vilket kändes välkomnande.
Kelley var mycket bra och ställde upp med allt vad vi begärde, även under kvällstid.
Vi åker väldigt gärna tillbaka och vi kommer att rekommendera Airbnb.

The house was beautiful, and Kelley was a superb property manager, helping us with all manner of arrangements once we were at the property. She was available at all hours and was perpetually cheerful, knowledgeable and helpful. The one sour note was with one of her recommended chefs, Vanessa, who ripped us off mercilessly: we complained about her charges for a first meal and she came back and charged us half again as much for a second meal. Tuto, by comparison, was much superior and fair in his prices.
The property is spread out over 3 levels and provides the right balance between privacy of the spaces and a large communal area with a nice large table at which to enjoy meals together.
The magic of this place is it's location overlooking the forest and horizon - but better than this, is the designer's appreciation for allowing each room to partake in the enjoyment of the sunrise, sunset or daily sounds emanating from the forest (birds chirping, toucans visiting the trees nearby, howling monkeys).
The beds were super comfortable and all 5 family members in the house rated this a fantastic way to end a day each night - in particular after a full day of activities such as being under the sun all day or surfing for hours on end.
Dominical is a sweet little slice of what Costa Rica has to offer - still not totally whitewashed by tourism so if you do stay here keep in mind that it will be largely self-catered and the typical luxuries of more developed towns don't exist. But, why come to Costa Rica to not get away from all of that?
Beautifully put, Eduardo. Thank you.
