    About this property

    Villa Central Steps to the Beach, Jungle & Ocean

    Beachfront vacation home with private pool and kitchen
    • Now With Reliable Cable Internet 5Mbps download / 1.5 Mbps Upload. Tropical fun, adventure, and relaxation await you and your family and friends. There are a variety of excellent surf spots starting with the beach break just past the pool. The natural beauty of Costa Rica is served up inside and out in this beautifully designed home located close to town, but far from anything you have ever seen in this area of Costa Rica. The open architecture takes advantage of the incredible setting. The home feels light and airy with great views from almost every window. Lush gardens and the sweeping sand beach are seamlessly joined by natural trees and plants. Comfort! Each bedroom has a dedicated air conditioner, fan, screened windows and sliding glass doors. The beds, interior, and exterior furniture are excellent quality and very comfortable. Much of the furniture was built by local craftsmen. The family room, dining room, kitchen, and upstairs seating area have ceiling fans, and screened windows and doors. 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).. Caballitos Del Mar Central sits between two other villas (Caballitos Del Mar North and South) that were built in a similar fashion. The three villas are private and can be rented separately or, for large groups conducting weddings or reunions, they can be rented all together. And while the beach out front is public, it is rarely visited by tourists or locals. For most of your stay, you’ll have the sand and waves all to yourself. Each villa can sleep as many as seven adults.
    Air-conditioned accommodations at this vacation home offer private pools and coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to balconies. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and separate dining areas. Bathrooms include showers and hair dryers.
    The recreational activities listed below are available either on site or nearby; fees may apply.

          Beautiful setting for relaxation

          We rented two houses for a family reunion. The location was wonderful and the houses were just what we needed. We spent most of our time in the large pool. We had all of the assistance we needed to answer all of our questions.

          5/5 Excellent

            Excellent property and exceptional management / staff

            This is a beautiful property, exactly as described. Entire property is very well maintained with a tremendous attention to detail throughout. Kitchen is very well equipped; linens, bedding and furniture is all top notch. Kids loved the pool! Wifi worked well. Nora and Rolando were great. Steve, Josue and Claudia were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. We booked several outings through them and it was all amazing! An amazing stay!

            5/5 Excellent


              I can't say enough great things about this rental. My husband and I and one other couple stayed in Villa #2 in March. It is the only rental, along with the 2 other villas (at least that we could find) that is directly on the beach. It was more perfect than we imagined. Huge house, all the amenities we would ever need, beautiful pool (that we spent A LOT of time in) and steps away from the beach. Watched beautiful sunsets, walked to town from the beach, etc. Never wanted to leave. The property management staff were great - responsive, helpful -- couldn't ask for more!
