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.
We loved Vista Encantada - in the jungle with gorgeous views and a comfortable space! The house was clean and very well taken care of. Kelley was easy to get in touch with and coordinate with. The kitchen was well equiped, water pressure in the shower was great, and overall it is a fantastic place to stay with three bedrooms. The bedroom downstairs has windows on both sides for 180 views. The bedroom upstairs has its own little porch/terrace with phenomenal views. Each of them are a great size. There was also wifi in the house.
Of note, there are air conditioning units in each of the bedrooms, but nothing in the general living space, kitchen, etc. During the day, this means it gets really warm in the house. Also, the drive up to the house definitely necessitates 4-wheel drive.
We would absolutely recommend the house for a stay!
Very nice house with great facilities. Excellent for 4 people. OK for 5.
We look forward to seeing you again.
Everything went really good. We enjoyed a lot our visit to Vista Encantada. The apartment was clean and extremely comfortable.
Kelly gave us so many great recommendations and the place was exactly what we expected. Can't wait to come back and bring a bigger group!
