The villas are located about 1km south of Dominical, Puntarenas, Costa Rica between the Costanera Sur (Southern Coast Highway) and the ocean. We were fortunate to find property in the Maritime Zone, which allows us to build close to the ocean, but with restrictions to protect the spectacular Costa Rican environment. The three villas, owned by two close families, are virtually identical. This makes Caballitos del Mar ideal for multiple families that want to vacation together, yet have separate accommodations.
Each home has three bedrooms and either three or four bathrooms, has two stories, and is approximately 2,200 sq.ft. (200 m^2) of living space. Each villa has a pool, laundry facilities, a full kitchen, and lots of ceiling fans to keep the air moving. The bedrooms are air-conditioned, although it's not necessary for most of the year. The three bedrooms are arranged for maximum privacy, either for a large family or multiple couples or friends traveling together. Two of the bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms, and one has a full bath just across a landing. The homes face the ocean and it's a 30 second walk to the semi-private beach.
A single family or group of friends can stay in one of the villas, but what really makes Caballitos del Mar special is the ability to host weddings, yoga retreats, family reunions, and anniversaries by reserving two or three of the homes simultaneously (schedule permitting). Up to 21 people can be accommodated, and everyone will have the same high quality of accommodations, regardless of which villa they call their own.
