  • Homey and well appointed villa

    "My husband myself and our 14yr old son stayed at Chris's lovely villa for 10 days. I was reluctant to book a VRBO as we had a previous bad experience. This was a very positive experience from start to finish. A welcome reprieve from our long cold Canadian winter. The villa was exactly as described and more. We lived mostly on the large patio, eating all of our meals outside. The plunge pool was fabulous. We made good use of the blender for margaritas/pina coladas and the new barbeque. Separate AC in every room was a nice touch. Very quiet location at the end of the street. We used the resort pools and enjoyed having cocktails watching the sunset at the restaurant. We did not partake in the meals at the resort.. The trolley to the beach was much appreciated as it is a steep walk up the hill in 38C. We spent most of our vacation enjoying Playa Hermosa and the villa. Great beach for swimming and boogie boarding in the waves. Our son spent many hours perfecting his skim boarding. Favorite memories will be watching the sunset with 2 for 1 cocktails from Roberto's. We also had a few meals there which we thoroughly enjoyed. Look for Adolfo/Alonso (brothers) to take you out to the "island" for a up-close and personal snorkelling experience. Chris's referral to Avispas Adventures was much appreciated. Amy and her crew were very accommodating, prompt and professional. They picked us up at the airport as promised only 20 minutes to the villa. Carlos took us to Playa Grande for a day of surfing. Beautiful never-ending surf and sand. Beware there is no shade here. We also had an enjoyable evening dining at Ginger's. I would suggest to do most food shopping at Coco Beach at the new supermarket, very nice and everything you will need including inexpensive boogie boards and skim boards. The grocery store in P. Hermosa is OK for basics, we found it to be pricey. We were looking for a relaxing beach vacation and this is exactly what we had. We did not see the green/jungle Costa Rica as seen in pictures as it was the end of the dry season. We plan to go back to see the "jungle/adventure" Costa Rica we have heard and seen so much in the rainy season Thanks again Chris"

  • Perfect Family Vacation in CR

    "Great vacation and great house. The pictures did not do justice to how nice this house was for our family. Sitting on the patio in the evening having a drink and watching the monkeys in the trees is something special. Excellent staff made all our activities just right. Our concierge, Magaly, was fantastic and always available to make sure we had everything we needed. We would go back in a heartbeat. I wish I was back their now. Fishing on the boat Nai'i was a highlight. Caught as many dorado as we could eat. Great crew."

  • Heaven in Costa Rica

    "My family of six arrived in the early evening after a long drive from San Jose. As soon as we opened the doors to this magnificient home, we all were in awe! My daughter said this is a house Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie would feel quite comfortable in. I loved the privacy & spaciousness of the Master bedroom and bathroom with an additional room as a closet. We made dinner one evening using the fabulous fully equipped screened-in kitchen complete with an ice-maker, grill, and seating for at least eight persons. This room has a breathtaking view of the islands during the day and lights at night from the town below. The infinity pool next to the outdoor kitchen was our favorite gathering place! Beautifully designed. I can't say enough about the quality of the furnishings and layout of this home. I have travelled to many countries over the years, but my fondest memories will be of our time spent in Playa Hermosa and the friendly locals of Costa Rica!"

  • Great Place to Stay!

    "Had a great, relaxing and wonderful stay for 2 weeks at this well maintained, clean and beautiful villa. We did not have a car but Carlos who manages Noreen's place arranged transportation from and to the airport. He also arranged transportation and golfing for my husband to be able to play. This place has absolutely everything you could possibly need to make your stay so enjoyable. What a view of the Ocean from the deck! The grocery store, beach and a few great restaurants are withing walking distance. Jonathan, the General Manager at Ginger's arranged free transportation to and from the restaurant. Good food! Bocelli's has excellent wood fired pizza. We also went there for dinner another night and had pasta. Very good. Fishing if you like that is excellent. We went there one day and caught tons of red snapper and my husband caught a 50 lb. Amberjack. So we did cook a few days at the villa. This place has everything from minature golf, a movie theatre with up to date movies and also other plays etc. There is always something going on there. The pool is great along with the breakfast and lunch that is available there. There is also a new sports bar that opens at 5 p.m. with great chicken wings among other items to order, music and special events there also. I actually did not want to leave! Thank you Noreen for a wonderful vacation. We actually are thinking about going back next year."

Playa Hermosa Travel Tips

Picture Perfect Vacations in Playa Hermosa Beach Rentals

For anyone looking for a small beach town vacation in the Guanacaste province of Costa Rica, Playa Hermosa beach rentals will be perfect! Situated along the northwest coast of the country, Playa Hermosa resorts offer plenty of fun in the sun and surf. Located just 25 minutes from the Liberia International Airport, planning vacations in Costa Rica has never been easier when you choose Playa Hermosa as your destination!

Playa Hermosa Resorts Offer Quiet Serenity

In Spanish, “hermosa” means “beautiful” so the town is aptly named. Playa Hermosa beach rentals line the gray sanded beaches and are situated between two spectacular mountains. Surrounded by the more populated beaches of Playa del Coco and Playa Panama, Playa Hermosa resorts offer privacy and lots of quiet relaxation. The water even reflects this as the waves here are much more serene than surrounding areas, making Playa Hermosa ideal for swimming and splashing rather than surfing and sporting.

National Parks Are a Must-see During Vacations in Costa Rica

You simply cannot plan vacations in Costa Rica without a visit to some of the many national parks in the country. In fact, quite a few are located rather close to many Playa Hermosa beach rentals so the trip will not be difficult. Rincon de la Vieja National Park, Santa Rosa National Park, and Palo Verde National Park are all worth a visit. If you want to view local wildlife (monkeys, jaguars, tropical birds, and more) up close and personal, this is your chance!

Laid-back Vacations in Playa Hermosa Beach Rentals

The atmosphere surrounding Playa Hermosa resorts is very laid-back. And that is what vacations in Costa Rica should be--ultimately relaxing. The country offers the opportunity to escape it all in a lush, tropical setting surrounded by oceans, beaches, and mountains. A trip to Playa Hermosa will cleanse the mind, body, and soul, making you ready for anything when you return home!
