Incredible 180 degree ocean view above a picturesque beach
Villa Katarina - Dominical
Villa Katarina is located in a gated community just 2 miles south of Dominical, perched on a rainforest hillslope overlooking the one-kilometer long Dominicalito Beach, which is 10 minutes' walk away. The view of the Pacific Ocean from here is simply stunning, a totally unobstructed 180 degree panorama. And all around the villa are trails and backcountry roads where you can walk for miles while being embraced by nature.

In addition to the TV lounge another cable TV is found in the main sitting room. The kitchen is fully equipped with all modern amenities. There is a dedicated laundry room with washer and dryer.

Villa Katarina and Pacific Sunset Villa are two villas that offer the most spectacular ocean view in this exclusive 35-villa community, and together they make a great choice for a two-family vacation, accommodating up to 11 people.
The community features 24-hour security with foot patrol, gated and manned entry, which is just 200 meters from the coastal main road turnoff. The villa is easily accessed year-round; however, due to the rapid rise from sea level to about 500 ft elevation, a four wheel drive will be needed. Travel time from the San Jose international airport is 3.5 hours and from the Quepos regional airport is 40 minutes. Dominical town is a 4-km drive away, which offers a dozen restaurants and a few convenience stores. Large supermarkets and weekly farmers market are available in Uvita, about 7 miles south of the villa. Within a 15-minute drive north and south of the villa you will discover a dozen wonderful beaches, some near deserted, some popular with surfers and others attract weekenders. This is an excellent base for those who plan to visit both Corcovado National Park (2 hours) and Manuel Antonio National Park (45 minutes).
