  • Best Vacation

    "Eric and Karen were excellent hosts and provided extremely useful information during our stay. The house was very nice. The beaches were beautiful and only got better as you head towards West Bay. Snorkeling right from the beach was great. So much to do, so little time. To quote my daughter, "This was the best vacation ever"."

  • perfect paradise

    "This vacation rental was a perfect fit for our group. We hosted a yoga retreat at this Villa. The layout is great. It gave everyone the option to have a private room and bathroom and each room came with 2 queen beds, with A/C. There was a large covered outdoor common area for dining and hanging out. The pool was nice. There was also a great outdoor space for us to do yoga and a quant deck overlooking the ocean for mediation. Marcela, the housekeeper, cooked 2 meals a day for our entire group of 13 people. She cooked Costa Rican meals and provided vegetarian and vegan options. The house is merely footsteps from the ocean. We could hear the waves crashing at night while sleeping, it was beautiful. Monkeys were found playing in the trees outside the house a couple time. This house has a local, rustic feel. It's perfectly located in walking or biking distance to Tamarindo and Playa Grande. I would without a doubt offer another retreat here. The property was a great size for large groups. Nova was very helpful in making sure we had everything, from board rentals to massages and airport transportation."

  • October getaway

    "My GF and I decided to escape the funky Fall weather in the Colorado Mountains and get a beach fix before ski season. This place was the answer. OK, everyone said the weather in October was always raining. Not true. Some rain but the GREEN of the land and the uncrowded quiet made up for it. It was our second visit to SW Nica. We knew this was the general area we wanted, and Hacienda Iguana was pretty much exactly it. Just modern enough, and as secure as anyone could want. Online, this 1BR Condo looked like everything we needed and it didn't disappoint when we got there. Very clean with a full sized kitchen and good appliances. Modern bathroom with a sweet glass block shower. And a provided cell phone made staying in touch with the nearby managers Seth and Lindsey especially easy when we had a few questions. Their staff was also exceptional in answering our needs at anytime. Super waves all along the beach most days didn't disappoint, even though it was the *off season*. The light sand beach (Playa Colorado) is arguably the best in the country, and even has good shelling for those who might enjoy that sort of thing. Also a nine hole golf course within walking distance. The pool right out the door and downstairs is well maintained and appreciated after a day in the ocean. We made up for the closed (only in October) restaurants by stocking up with everyday groceries on the way there with our driver, and easily arranged to return for more after a week. Inexpensive fresh fish/lobster from the small fishing village next door were the main courses for patio sunset dinners, accessed via a quick and fun ride on a rental motorcycle from NSR. Or there's some phone numbers in the information folder to call for delivery if desired. Good, funky restaurants there too, that remain open in the off season. All in all we left after 3 weeks completely satisfied and refreshed, though a little sore from surfing. Would definitely recommend this Unit for a couple wanting what we did. It's comfortable, not too small, and not too big. Perfect..."

  • Clean, comfortable, fun

    "Our family (including two kids ages 7 & 9) had a great time in Playa Hermosa. There are so many places to visit on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica and we fell in love with Playa Hermosa. The views and the beach are outstanding especially since the water is a bay with few waves; the water felt like a bath. The rental was very comfortable with A/C included which was not standard in our rentals. You definitely need a car to stay here with many things in walking distance but the distances are more than 10-15 minutes. Great restaurants around and many options for adventures. We used Tico Tours. We had a great time and did not want to leave after our week's stay."
