Playa Hermosa villa description

Welcome to my lovely villa that is a short walk to the beach. This is a one level, detached casita that offers privacy and security with endless on-site amenities.

The full service kitchen, with newer appliances, opens to the dining and living areas in a great room effect. A new washer/dryer was added 3/2011. Attractive living room furniture, drapes, artwork and accessories add to the warm and welcome atmosphere.

The master bedroom has a queen sized bed and a private bathroom. There is ample storage and closet space. The second bedroom has a queen bed and shares the renovated second bathroom (with walk in tiled shower) with the third bedroom, which has two twin beds

There is a large covered patio and lanai for outdoor living. There is a large table for dining and a new gas grill for your use and enjoyment. The beautiful private plunge pool is adjacent to the patio.

One of the reasons I chose to purchase in this area is it's close proximity to the Liberia airport. It is a short 20 minute drive over new roads. Once you arrive at our gated resort, there are complimentary staffed open air vehicles that shuttle resort guests around the property, to the beach, 2 restaurants, 2 large pools, (one of which has a swim up bar), the disco and sports facilities including new tennis and basketball courts.

In addition to all of the on-site amenities, there is also an optional all-inclusive food and beverage package, if you choose to partake. Otherwise, there are many shops, grocery stores and excellent restaurants to visit close by and a small convenience store on site for small meal preparation and miscellaneous items.

There are five National Parks within a couple of hours drive, including Lake Arenal( 5 hours away), which boasts a volcano, hot springs and a world class spa. Also nearby are deep sea fishing, first class scuba diving, sailing, four wheeling and zip lines for racing through the tree tops on a rigged line with a harness, just to mention a few. You can arrange these excursions through Avispas Advuenture.

I have tried to make my home away from home special and comfortable for not only my friends and family, but guests too! Please come and enjoy 'La Pura Vida.'

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: I am a licensed Realtor who lives in Hilton Head Island, SC. I have always loved to travel and had a dream to own a property in the Caribbean/Central America area. After looking at many destinations, I traveled to Costa Rica and it clicked. The country is rich in rainforets, lush vegetation, volcanoes, beautiful beaches and much more. The local people (Ticos)are friendly and welcoming. The weather is fantastic and it's an easy location to travel to. There are many non-stop flights from Atlanta, Houston, Miami, New York and other departure cities.

                      Why the Owner Chose Playa Hermosa:
                      It was important to me that my property be in a resort, gated community and I wanted three bedrooms for family and friends. The amenities are plentiful. Yoga by the pool, walks on the beach, fitness in the gym, teen discos, karaoke, bird and monkey sightings onsite and much, much more.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      For the first day of my arrival, I usually like to stay around the resort and enjoy the many amenities on site. There are 2 large pools in addition to my private plunge pool. The beach is a short walk or hop on one of the complimentary open air vehicles. After a day or two I'm ready to venture out to shop in Playas del Coco, a 10 minute drive, or to take an excursion to the rain forests. Ziplining is very popular as is horse-back riding, kayaking, turtle watches, hiking and much more. The local restaurants are terrific ranging from casual to fine dining although casual attire is the norm.
