Welcome to Whale Watcher Villa, a pristine vacation home located in tropical Costa Rica. The property is situated between the towns of Dominical and Uvita in the country’s southern Pacific zone, where lush jungle canopy backs right up to the sea. You will need a 4×4 vehicle to navigate a short dirt road that leads from the coastal highway to the house.
Featuring four bedrooms, including the aforementioned double masters, and four-and-a-half bathrooms, Whale Watcher Villa can accommodate a maximum of eight guests. The house and swimming pool are suitable for children. There is a gated entrance to the property and covered parking for two cars and additional space for more vehicles.
Each of the four spacious bedrooms has an en-suite bathroom, air-conditioning unit, television with Netflix, and a king bed. Best of all, gone are the days of someone being stuck with a sliding door facing the garage because every bedroom at Whale Watcher Villa has a significant ocean view. One of the bedrooms is located on the ground floor (no stairs) within close range of the infinity pool & deck. The remaining three bedrooms, including the two master bedrooms, are on the second floor, with the sunset deck above that.
The kitchen is stocked with plenty of high-end cooking equipment, and there are indoor and outdoor dining tables for eight guests. The indoor/outdoor dining areas are totally integrated and allow for seamless transitions from the kitchen to the barbeque and pool deck.
Activities wise, there are a ton of cool things to do around Dominical and Uvita. Surfing, river rafting, kayaking, zip-lining, and riding ATVs are extremely popular with the high-octane set, while hiking, birding, horseback, and mangrove tours put you in the thick of the jungle. From Whale Watcher Villa, it takes less than 15 minutes to drive to Dominical or Uvita. There are at least a dozen different restaurants in both towns, from world-class dining options to ceviche stands along the seashore.
By foot, it takes 12-15 minutes to walk from the property to a completely uncrowded beach that is ideal from the low-to-mid tide, before the water creeps too high onto the rocks. There is rarely anyone on this beach, making it kind of a secret, local gem. Wildlife is also very common at the property, from white-faced and howler monkeys to a variety of birds, sloths, frogs, and other wacky creatures that can cross your path at any moment. Have your camera handy!
Whale Watcher Villa is a magical place located in a part of the world that remains enchanting, uncrowded, and well, pretty Pura Vida, as the locals say. During your stay, the YouGetHere Property Management team is only a phone call or email away to assist with tour reservations, in-home chef and massage options, as well as any home maintenance issues that may arise.
Because when it comes time to take that well-earned tropical vacation, it’s nice to know all the boxes have been thoroughly checked.

"This house is exceptional, don't let the pictures fool you, they don't do it justice. Each bedroom rivals the next, the infinity pool is much larger than it seems and unlike a lot of other homes we stayed in, it's quite close to the main road but far enough away to have privacy and a great view! Perfect proximity to Uvita and Dominical making it a great home base. The only issue we found was that we never wanted to leave! We'll definitely rent with Neil and yougethere.com every time we come to Costa Rica. Their hospitality is top-notch. Thank you for a wonderful stay! Thank you for the hospitality. Our host was exceptional and the space was incredible. Definitely our favorite house so far and we look forward to booking directly through you the next time we come."This house is exceptional, don’t let the pictures fool you, they don’t do it justice!January 28, 2021
"Neil's house is absolutely amazing. Every room is so beautiful and has an even better view. Every single room. My friends and I really enjoyed the view from the pool. We even had the opportunity to see a family of monkeys. Dominical is a beautiful town. Has a lot of cool dining spots just south of this location. Also the waterfall. The most beautiful we've seen. We loved staying here. Thank you Ismael for the wonderful hospitality. My friends and I appreciated you staying late to check us in."House is absolutely amazing!January 18, 2021
"As amazing as the photos are on the Airbnb, it actually is even better! I know, it doesn't seem possible, but it's true. So clean, fantastic pool, amazing views, great seating indoors and out. Each room as a suite was ideal for adults all traveling together and so comfortable. The stars were amazing at night while relaxing by the pool. The kitchen has all you need to make meals or just drinks in the blender. Neil and his staff were very attentive to anything that we needed and we very much appreciated that. The location is great as well, we have young adult children that enjoy Dominical and we love all the good restaurants around Uvita. This is our favorite area in Costa Rica, we have been more than 10 times. We saw toucans every day in the trees at the house, many butterflies, and one morning monkeys swung through the trees."As amazing as the photos are on the Airbnb, it actually is even better!January 18, 2021
My family and I had an absolutely amazing time at the Whale Watcher villa. We were there for about two weeks in December, spending most of it 'working from home'. The WiFi was exceptional in all areas of the house and the bedrooms were spacious and well designed. The highlight of the house was the huge infinity pool overlooking the ocean. We would spend most of our time there, diving into the deep end, swimming laps, and listening to the sound of the waves. Outside of the outstanding pool, the amenities of the house were carefully thought through. The bathrooms (all bedrooms had en suites) were comfortable, the kitchen well stocked, and the outside furniture a perfect fit. The house was heaven within the paradise of Costa Rica. Yougethere itself had *amazing* customer service. The company's owner, Neil, graciously helped us throughout our stay in Costa Rica, even after our stay wit...Read More

Jonathan, the property manager was always a phone call away, putting all his energy into making our stay as comfortable as possible. If you find yourself booking a trip to Costa Rica, make sure to book through this amazing company (and try to get the Whale Watcher villa if it's available!!).Read LessThe house was heaven within the paradise of Costa Rica!December 5, 2020
