  • "Best Vacation Ever!"

    "Summed up by our 6 year-old, "Best vacation ever!" This was our first trip to Costa Rica and the owner and property manager made sure we felt right at home. The location permits you to do as much or as little as you like. Playa Hermosa is idyllic. An uncrowded paradise just 25 minutes from the airport, the beach was calm and perfect for swimming. The pool was steps away from the patio. We could sit under the fans with a cool drink while our daughter swam and played just steps away by the pool. The condo itself was beautifully decorated, with high-end finishes, a well-equipped kitchen, high-speed internet and plenty of beach towels. We awoke to the sound of waves. What more could you ask for? There are several excellent dining choices a short walk down the beach. My daughter loved the food and beachy atmosphere of Aquasport. I was partial to La Casita del Marisca (get the Snapper VaraCruz style.) We were pleased to see (and frequently hear) howler monkeys right from the condo. We adopted an iguana, though we left it behind for fear of what U.S.customs might think. We were picked up right off the beach for a snorkeling trip with Captain Alphonso. A few days later, we were picked up again, this time by his brother and nephew, for a sensational half day of fishing. We took a river cruise to see monkeys, crocodiles, jesus lizards, bats, iguana and myriad other animals. We zip-lined over canyons and waterfalls. We sat by the pool with ice-cold Imperial's. We did exactly as we liked, and we were never far from Playa Hermosa. I would recommend this property and location highly. We will definitely go back - there is so much to do!"

  • GREAT place for a MEMORABLE vacation

    "This is my first review in this site. I have to state a few facts before hand. I am a world traveler due to my job and spend over 150 days a year on hotels in every continent. Likewise, our family usually takes trips twice a year to different countries around the world, always staying in houses or resorts. However, this was our first time renting a house in Costa Rica, where home is for us. I have to say that my expectations were quite low, as I had not vacationed in this area, plus I had left this trip to the very last minute, with Semana Santa (Easter week) on top, making it difficult to find any place available. However, we struck gold! We contacted David (owner) and Jodi (manager), and were able to make a memorable vacation, with the help of Gary (the local house keeper), who is a GREAT person to have a chat with and pointing on what to do locally. Location - The house is located on a mid-hilltop, with views to the ocean (less than a mile away), with lush vegetation around it (great for the monkeys that come and visit). The directions are very easy to get there, and it is centrally located to everything. Rooms - The rooms are great!!! Each with individual fans and A/C and the house with a master A/C, with multiple fans. They are large rooms, with very comfortable beds, great linens, each room with its private big bathroom and big closets! What else to ask for? Amenities - The house includes a series of perks like a FAST internet connection, Magic Jack, Roku, DVD player, 2 TV (one in the main bedroom and one in the living room) with Satellite TV, outside speakers, and large couches to watch TV... Outside - Obviously, the pool is a great attraction and it was a great one, with spectacular sunset views and just great for lounging. But the outside table, umbrella and chairs, made it the perfect location for food, drinks and unwinding.. or falling asleep in the sun tanning chairs (under a great shadow from a beautiful native tree)! Cooking - I love cooking and this is by far one of the best houses we have been to in terms of all utensils. We had great pots and pans (every size, for every style), great granite countertops, glass cooktop, great knives/cookware, and overall a great selection of plates to serve your food in, that really made it kind of special in terms of a "vacation" feel. A great dining table, topped it for family gathering. Overall - This house far exceeded our expectations, and we will definitely come back."

  • The view, the location and the quiet setting make is 5-stars

    "The Sunset House has a spectacular view, great proximity to conveniences in Playas del Coco (i.e. the nice supermarket and veggie/fruit market), and is in a very quiet private and secure residential neighborhood. We really enjoyed the pool from sunrise to sunsets (and what a sunset it is!). The kitchen is well equipped. We had some minor problems with the dish washer leaking and the Manager had that fixed. We grilled out a lot, and if you plan to as well be sure to check to see if you have a full gas tank for the grill. Ours ran out and it was a Sunday so we had to wait for a refill. The neighbor was away and their dog was left out and yelped incessantly one night through. Hopefully you won't have to suffer through that. We hope to visit the Sunset House again soon. Our three-year old refers to it as "our new house"... what more is there to say than that!"

  • 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."
