  • Clean, safe, beautiful location, but not quite as advertised

    "We were really excited to stay at this Playa Hermosa Bungalow. While the place was clean and the location was beautiful there were some key things that were not as described. First of all, no drinking water was provided. This was a real bummer, as we had just flown overnight and driven from SJO and wanted to relax on the front porch with a nice cup of water. We ended up taking one of the empty 5 gallon jugs to Mas X Menos and getting it filled. I let the owner know and she made no apologies or effort to reimburse us. There is no telescope, nor long distance phone calls or a helpful property manager who will assist you with tours. For some reason, the maid did not fully make the beds, so we were without a blanket for one of them. Aaron did provide us with one of his, but it was not clean, but we made do. We did not feel comfortable asking him for anything after that point-- there was a certain vibe to him that made you feel as if you shouldn't bother him. I did let the owner know about the telescope and phone calls and she basically played ignorant. Had we known that some of the descriptive items were not available, nor accurate, we probably would not have gone with this house, as these were selling points for us. Some of other property managers were much more interactive and friendly. I would suggest renting a bungalow from them if you want to be able to feel comfortable asking questions about what to do in the area and where to go. Besides all of the "surprises" we really did enjoy a peaceful vacation. We spent a lot of the time on the front porch. There is a nice ocean view. On the back porch we spent time looking at all the birds and animal visitors. We did get to see the monkeys. We lounged in the pool and the hammocks and felt quite relaxed. Victor, the fisherman, came by our place and had delicious catches. A walk along the beach to some of the restaurants was a fun time. The Backyard has a nice happy hour going on. The Bluegrass Cafe had delicious cinnamon rolls. And, make sure you take a trip to the waterfalls: Tres Pascinas."

  • Beautiful! Great location!

    "This was our first trip to Costa Rica - and we will be coming back very soon. The bungalow's are right on the beach. It was also walking distance to cafes and a grocery store. Anna was great - she helped us with transportation to and from the airport in Tambor. My husband surfs and he was very happy with the surf. I really enjoyed the beach to the right of the bungalows. It was more private, had some great tidal pools - like bay water. Very peaceful. Directly in front of the bungalow is where the fisherman are. You can even buy their catch right there on the beach. If you're looking for heaven on earth - this is it!"

  • Dream Home

    "Casa Sophie is truly a home away from home. Our family stayed for one week, and we didn't want to come back to reality! If you're looking for a place to relax and spend quality time with family, this is the place to go. We truly had an amazing time at Casa Sophie, and we highly recommend this home to any type of family. The view from the rooftop is beautiful; the pool is absolutely amazing, my two daughters never wanted to get out of it! Playa Bejuco is a five minute walk from Casa Sophie, which is a huge bonus! This place is comfortable, peaceful, and enjoyable. Everyone there welcomed us with open arms and we truly appreciated the cleanliness and comfort of the home. Again, my whole family definitely recommends this home 2000%! PURA VIDA"

  • Perfect beach location!

    "We had a fabulous week thanks to Ivan's welcoming nature and beautiful house. For a family with teenagers it was ideal as safe swimming on our doorstep, and plenty of activities all provided through Ivan (fishing, snorkelling trip to Isla Tortuga, surf lessons, paddle boarding, quad biking through the Nicoya countryside). Other beautiful beaches within walking distance, groceries and a great choice of restaurants a short walk away. The house is just as described and all the people we met in Montezuma very friendly and welcoming. A great place to stay, we would love to return sometime."
