"My husband, two sons (18, 20) and I enjoyed a week long stay at this condo between Christmas and New Years. It was clean, comfortable, well equipped and conveniently located a short walk from the beach. The property was secure and the other residents were friendly. Corby was very welcoming and helpful with recommendations for activities. One day as we sat by the pool a howler monkey came down from the trees and we got a really good look at it. Playa Hermosa is a nice beach and not too busy. We highly recommend this condo as a perfect location from which to enjoy all the activities in this part of Costa Rica."

"Thank you to the owner for sharing your home with us. And thank you to Bernie for making sure we were comfortable. The Sunset House is in a perfect location to explore beaches and the surrounding towns. The pool is wonderful and has a spectacular view of the ocean. The location is quiet, private and felt very safe. Everything you need is available at the home. We shopped at local grocery store, cooked at the home, ate a few restaurants, went to several beaches, did a half day catamaran cruise, snorkeled and relaxed. Excellent time. The only issue was ants, which was not unexpected and with Bernie's help were not a problem Bernie was always available by phone, and he checked back in with us by e-mail and in person. Again, this home is in a great location and as a spectacular view. Our adult granddaughter was with us. The pool was icing on the cake for her. It was an unforgettable trip."

"Really enjoyed our nine nights at Casa Colinas. Private areas make for a comfortable place to host friends, as we did. The pool area is beautiful, attended by a huge, mellow iguana and a friendly young monkey one morning. As mentioned in other reviews, Eric is very attentive and having Yohanna come and cook was an excellent experience. Dennis was extremely accommodating with our arrangements.
Maybe because the house is so large, it was not quite and clean upon arrival as one might like, as I repostioned the TV and the floor thee was a bit of a mess.
We also hosted a minor invasion of fire ants and a scorpion. We took these in stride. We would not want to have heard that major pesticides were applied, so taking care of these was no problem. This can occur anywhere in CR.
There are 24 hour security patrols and the gate attendants seem cheerful.
The dramatic entry foyer is a huge solar furnace which caused us to use AC more than we would have otherwise. Could use at least one sharp knife in kitchen.
Be aware that the location is on a steep hill, which is a long, arduous walk from the Hermosa beach, but a short drive. If you have 4x4 absolutely do not miss nearby beach Playa Penca, which has white Caribbean-like sand, aqua water and nice snorkeling. Recommended."

"Our family of four stayed in the Hermosa Heights Villa for a week trip to Costa Rica. Located just 25 minutes from the airport, it is very convenient. Playa Hermosa is just down the road and you can walk if you like. Playa del Coco is just a short 8 minute car ride or $10 cab ride and it has has tons of restaurants, bars, shops, and a large beach. Playa Potrero and Flamingo is just 1.15 hours and Tamarindo is about 1.75 hours by car.
The villa is large with a great deck and view of the ocean. All amenities and A/C is included! Recommend renting a car if you want to see the coast - very easy from airport. Would stay there again. Owner is very nice and responsive and the property management team were excellent and prompt."
