Great Place to Stay
Great Place to Stay
My family stayed in the villa during our vacation to Costa Rica. The place is very well maintained, well equipped and located in the very nice compound. It is within the walking distance from the beach and has wonderful view from the balcony. We haven't used the facilities (gym, spa, movie theater, etc) on the territory of the compound, but saw people regularly using them. The pool was very nice though, and my 9 year old son, who is not a big fan of pools when there is an ocean nearby, spent quite some time there. Russ, the owner, was very helpful and responsive. If we ever decide to return to the Playa Hermosa area in the future, staying at this villa will definitely be our first choice.

Owner response: Sergey: Your review comments are much appreciated. My goal was to make sure your needs were met during our communications and your visit. I am happy to know that you were satisfied. Hope you will return in the future. Regards, Russ
If you like quiet this is the place for you. My family of 5 stayed in this villa for a week. It is just as the pictures and reviews show. We enjoyed having the extra space and a place to cook some meals. We made use of the blow up matress which fits nicely in the master bed room leaving the living room open for early risers and late nighters.The views from the balcony were wonderful. During the week the complex was very quiet. We rarely saw anyone and had the pool to ourselves. On the weekend the pool bar/grill was open serving food and drink all day long. There was also live music from 5-7. The pool was very happening as there was a child's birthday party going on. This was also the only time I saw anyone using the minature golf. Also the Sports Bar at the front of the complex was closed down. If you stay here I highly recommend you rent a car. The owner, Russ and his property manager, Corby were very helpful and quick to answer any question or concerns we had. The nearby Ginger's Tapas Restraunt was very good. I recommend driving to Playa Ocotal . It is a beautiful black sand beach just south of Playas del Coco. Also, if you are up for an adventure we enjoyed zip-lining and hiking with Sky Trek and relaxing at the Tabacon hot springs.

Owner response: Carol; I am so glad that you had a great time during your Costa Rica vacation and that my community and villa could be a part of it. I very much enjoyed working with you to ensure your family's needs were met. Many thanks. Russ
Rather than repeat what others have said, I would recommend reading the other reviews. Based on our visit, we would say they are accurate in describing the property and its amenities. And yes, we would stay here again! One area I will comment on is the owner. When we were planning our trip we sent e-mails to several different property owners, including a few others in this same community. Russ was the first to respond to our inquiry - within an hour or so. Our subsequent e-mails to him with questions were promptly returned. The contract process was quickly executed via e-mail. When we returned home we had an e-mail from Russ inquiring about our visit and informing us that our deposit was in the mail. The check was received within a week. His property manager, Corby, was also very friendly and helpful. We didn't have any problems with our rental but if we did I'm sure Russ or Corby would have quickly taken care of the issue.

We had such a great time at this Villa. I will definitely be returning! Russ was very helpful, and when we got to the Villa, the property manager was great! She gave us information about tours and trips, and helped us to discover great things this town has to offer. Playa hermosa is so beautiful. We will definitely return to visit and stay here again. It was very nice to have our own kitchen, laundry and a pool right on the property.

My wife and I spent 10 days in this villa at the end of April. We found the home to be very comfortable and the kitchen to be well stocked with cooking and eating utensils. The unit was clean and in good condition. The view from the deck was nothing less than breath taking, especially at sunset. We used the community pool several time and found it to be clean and well maintained. The "Sports Bar" at the entrance to the property was a great place to have lunch and I am sure their dinners are very good as well although we never tried them for dinner. There are numerous excellent resturaunts in the area. I would recommend a rental car if you want to go to the beach or out to dinner, although it can be walked if you don't mind a bit of excercise! I would hesitate to recommend this property for anyone who has trouble climbing stairs. You have to climb a couple flights to get into the villa.

Owner response: Mark: I am glad you enjoyed your visit to my villa and community. We very much enjoy the view from our deck as well and taking leisurely walks through our picturesque community. Playa Hermosa offers owners and guests alike a very enjoyable experience. You are correct that there are two sets of outside stairs to the upper level of the villa; although it should be mentioned that a more accessible way is via the spiral stairway from the lower level to the living room above that is only about 10 stairs, making access to the upper level a bit easier. Regards, Russ - Owner

This was an ideal, fantastic place to call home for one week. The villa provided all of the essentials necessary, including cookware, many towels, individually controlled air conditioners, and best of all, a very friendly and responsible staff. The villa was within walking distance to the beach, about 15 minutes, and near great restaurants located along the road to the beach. Much better than staying at a hotel!!

We Highly Recommend This Villa!!!
We Highly Recommend This Villa!!!
Our stay at Villa Antonelda exceeded all our expectations. We traveled with 3 teens and a 9 year old and everyone was happy with the home, community and Guanacaste area. Before arriving, Russ made sure we had what we needed – managers names, office number and cell, a map and directions. Russ also helped with a company for airport transfers. The villa was clean, everything worked, was as described by the owner, except with even more amenities. We had a washer/dryer and ample supplies to cook with; a kettle, coffee pot, microwave, toaster and blender. There was a DVD player AND WIFI! There were plenty of towels, sheets, trashbags, paper towels, dish soap, laundry detergent, salt, sugar, coffee filters – all the things you don’t want to pack. We didn’t want for anything. The property is in a secure beautifully landscaped gated community with friendly staff. We felt safe at all times and enjoyed getting to know the locals. The community has two restaurants. The pool had waterslides the kids loved and a swim up bar with fresh smoothies for kids and drinks for adults. There was a playground, basketball hoop, a small minigolf course, and a cinema. The cinema folks were so nice, when we were the only guests they let us pick what movie we wanted to see. It was an easy walk to everything in Playa Hermosa (beach, restaurants, and local supermarket). Because the property is elevated, it has a beautiful ocean view, but after you walk down you do have to walk back up - just be prepared. We had no issues with this, but if I had elderly parents with me I would take a Taxi or rent a car for them. The town LOVES tourists. They go out of their way to make everyone feel safe and welcome. A few folks deserve special mention – be sure to stop by Erika’s fruit stand on road to beach for just picked produce. Her husband Mario is a Chef and if there is room you can dine at their home on their balcony – one of the most memorable meals we ever had. Bernal and guides at Tico Tours were amazing. We used them for Arenal Volcano tour, some other half day tours, and airport transfers. Marta is a local taxi driver (phone 8860-3055). She told about the area and after a few trips we liked her so much we paid for her to stay our entire last day with us. We also used Diving Safaris; if you dive, or want to learn, contact them. We had a wonderful vacation staying here and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Costa Rica.

Owner response: Pablo: We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in our villa. We also believe that Playa Hermosa and our community in particular has a lot to offer a visitor, being centrally located between many beaches and other activities, with fine nearby restaurants, a large grocery store just outside the community gate that offers convenient food and supplies, the mini-golf course, spa, movie theater and of course the wonderful pool and friendly staff. We are happy to have met your needs. Please come again soon. Regards, Russ - Owner

This villa is a very comfortable two bedroom home. Well equiped 1/4 mile (easy walk) to beach. Owner and property manager very accommodating. While I enjoyed the unit very much I would warm parents of small children, there is a circular staircase to lower level garage and laundry area that is not safe for small children. We had to improvise a gate and block the wrought iron railing. Which is very attractive but tempting for children. Playa Hermosa is very removed from urban areas, so if you are looking for a getaway this is great. Otherwise would recommend a car or being prepared to do excursions and use taxi's if you want to see Costa Rica.

Owner response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay in my villa. Sorry for your concern about the spiral stairway that leads from the upper to the lower level. While beautiful and convenient, it could be a concern for parents with small children, but I am pleased that you were able to easily block it off and eliminate the concern. Regards, Russ- Owner
