Rolling hills and mountains covered with tropical forests surround the bay and protect the beach from strong winds and swells. A reef north of the bay acts as a natural barrier, providing calm waters ideal for water sports such as swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking or anchoring your boat.
Ten minutes to the south of Villa Serena, lies Playa Camaronal, a remote beach with greyish sand and blue waters, which is a popular nesting site for leatherback (Mar–Apr) and olive ridley turtles (year round). It was declared as a National Wildlife Refuge in 1994. Its moderate to strong waves make it an ideal spot for surfers.
Villa Serena has it all!
Welcome to your own place in paradise!

Off the beaten path
Off the beaten path
We stayed at Villa Serena for a week at the beginning of May. It is about an hour and a half from Liberia airport at the end of the road going through Playa Carilllo. I drank water out of the taps and had no issues but there are plenty of small stores in the area to purchase food, drinks and alcohol. Hint: Purchase your hard liquor at the airport. Cheaper for some reason, I think taxes. The home itself is sitting on a cliff about 50 feet above a small beach. Every now and then locals would use it and go sit on the rocks to watch the waves crash, but most of the time, you have it to yourself. The beach is a short walk down a moderate pathway and if you ventured out onto the rocks you get to view some wonderful sunsets. The waves crashing on the rocks was constant and the sound carried throughout the home. All the amenities in the home were high end and in very good working order including the pool. Three of the four bedrooms were nice size with their own bathrooms, one was much smaller and would have to use one of the other baths. We have been to CR several times and I must say that Denisse provided the most information about the surrounding area and things to do of all the VRBO homes that we have rented. This home also had the best views of our stays and the best feeling of seclusion. Modesto and Marcia were wonderful and attentive without being intrusive.

Spent a great week at this home. The place is every bit as nice as the pictures and more. There are so many places to relax and enjoy the weather, but my favorite was morning coffe on the upstairs terrace. Can't go wrong. And Marcia is a great cook!

About the owner: Denisse and William lived in Switzerland for many years. Renovated and renewed several gentlemen farmhouses, and after extensively traveling around the globe, looking for the perfect place as part of living the happiest possible life, they chose the Pacific Ocean side of lovely Costa Rica.
Why the Owner Chose Playa Carrillo:
Villa Serena is a unique oceanfront jewel. The Tuscan architecture has been deployed with solid bases and unparalleled attention to detail. The architect and builder is world-renowned (Philadelphia Airport, and several high-rises on the biggest cities around the globe).
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Splendid Pacific Ocean views and impeccable finishes. The previous owner of Villa Serena is a Canadian investor who built the villa as his private vacation home with no budget restrictions. Villa Serena was built by Italian developer Sam Alibrando with high attention to detail and the highest standards of quality of construction. The location of Villa Serena is a privileged one; anyone going there just falls in love immediately after stepping out of the car. The sounds of the waves crashing against the rocks and the peacefulness of its blue ocean, the magnificent sunsets and the marine breeze, makes days at Villa Serena a magic experience that people want to repeat over and over again. Villa Serena is located near Carrillo, in a very private setting, completely away from the noise and busy streets of towns. No one can predict there is such a beautiful villa there, when entering the gravel road for the first time. The new owners of Villa Serena just turned it into a very unique oceanfront vacation rental home. And Villa Serena has it all to guarantee the best vacations one can have in its lifetime. The danger of coming to Villa Serena... is not wanting to leave when the time is over! Villa Serena is a magical Tuscan Style villa with the benefits of the majestic Pacific Ocean right out the back door!
