About the property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bath, sleeps 6

Breathtaking Ocean View with Private Infinity Pool.

Where will you find a villa perched in the hills above Playa Hermosa with a breathtaking ocean view and just a short distance to the beach? Only at exclusive Mariner’s Point -- a small community of luxury villas with sweeping ocean views! This location provides a quiet restful mood for relaxing in privacy and comfort while listening to the undulating sounds of the waves below. Your only thought will be “This is the life!”

Villa Ted, with its spectacular view and private infinity pool, will inspire you to return to Costa Rica again and again. This luxuriously appointed villa will leave you wanting for nothing. Relax on the spacious veranda as you grill your 'catch of the day' at the villa's “rancho” complete with built in stainless steel grill. Enjoy the view of the sparkling lights of Playa Hermosa as you dine “al fresco” on the balcony. A midnight dip in the infinity pool is the grand finale to a perfect day.

The 2400 sq. ft. villa, designed for open living and entertainment, is furnished with local artisan pieces, leather and sparkle. Stunning ocean views are seen from the living area as well as the 6 seat dining space. You will even enjoy the gorgeous view while spending time in the state-of-the-art kitchen with custom cabinetry, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, small appliances and full service for 8.

This 3 bedroom, 3 bath villa has a master suite, second bedroom with en-suite bath, and a third bedroom and guest bath. The villa very comfortably accommodates 6 guests. Each bedroom has custom Costa Rican furnishings, luxury linens and bed coverings. Baths are all spacious and beautifully appointed and fully outfitted with towels and soaps.

The large veranda, very comfortably furnished, provides outdoor living space for pure enjoyment of viewing the ocean, the mountains in the distance, and perhaps an occasional rain shower. It is a perfect place for morning coffee, while you listen to the songs of the myriad of birds that call Costa Rica their home.

The exclusive villas of Mariner’s Point, securely gated and employing a 24 hr. guard staff, has created an oasis of pools, spacious terraces and a palm frond palapa to shade you when you’re ready for a little less “sol”. You can choose the beach below or the views from one of the two pools as your sun worshipping mecca.

With it gentle waves, Playa Hermosa is wonderful for swimming, strolling the tree-lined beach path, or stopping along the way at the local bars and restaurants peppered along the way. No need for umbrellas - the beach is bordered by shade trees and sprinkled with park tables for a picnic lunch.

Playa Hermosa is an upscale community located in the Guanacaste Region of Costa Rica, and only 20 minutes from the Daniel Oduber International Airport (LIR). Activities abound including canopy zip-lining, hiking, whitewater rafting, river rides, sailing, fishing, horseback riding, surfing). Our Pacific coast area is famous for SCUBA diving, snorkeling, and world class sport fishing.

This place was unbelievable! From the confirmation to checkout, the process was very simple and professional. You had easy access to the Condo to load and unload luggage. Air conditioning made it extremely comfortable and relaxing. The private pool was fantastic. It was very quiet and relaxing. We were provided maps and recommendations for restaurants and activities. The view was spectacular! I highly recommend this location!

I would stay here again!!!

  • 5 of 5

ZINDIS is the property management which is a legit company. They checked me in several hours early because the property was ready to go. The pictures are exactly how you see it. I was told that I couldn't lower the AC under 76 degrees, but that wasn't a problem and I was never too hot. The pool is not heated, and neither is the hot tub (if that was supposed to be hot tub). But the pool temp isn't too bad (ocean is much warmer). I felt very safe here, and it was quite quiet. It was a 5 minute walk down a very steep hill to the beach. The only con I had was that for the price I'm paying per night, at least have the hot tub working with hot water.

The pictures do not do it justice. Playa Hermosa, is a wonderful town, and this is the place to stay. The house had plenty of everything that you will need. The pool is better than you could possibly imagine, and the morning shade on the patio was perfect. If you have trouble walking up hill, you might want to rent a car. We used their concierge services with Tico Tours and they were wonderful, so we didn't rent a car. I found the walk a good work out and the ocean breeze helped. Everything about our trip was fantastic! Thank you so very much.

WOW Paradise! Amazing property! Best time ever

  • 5 of 5

The property is clean. Everything in the home works. The view is spectacular. Good customer service. As good as the property looks in the pictures it is even better. Imagine having a couples massage for 90 minutes by the pool listening to the waves break. Walking on the beach, swimming in the ocean, watching the sunset while eating fresh ceviche. renting wave runners and going out in the ocean. Visiting a rainforest and soaking in mineral pools. eating the local food. This is a must stay property. If you want the vacation of your life villa Ted is the place to stay. Now that I am home I close my eyes and it takes me back to my favorite spot on earth. Just do it! you will never be the same. This should be put on your bucket list.

Stunning View!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have travelled to Costa Rica numerous times over the last 16 years. There have been a lot of changes across the country, but Playa Hermosa has remained a small, quiet village. The Villa was everything the pictures showed. The view is amazing - probably the best in the area. The pool was crystal-clear and was much used by our group (4 adults). We had a few minor issues, which were promptly addressed by the management team. The howlers were up quite early announcing their presence, but then, so was I - the others in my group were not awakened by the noise as they did not hear them inside the villa. This was a total relaxation week for us – lazing around the pool, massages on the beach and strolls along the beach. Groceries and wine were easily found in both Playa Hermosa and Playas del Coco. Dinner at Ginger’s is a must-do in Playa Hermosa – the food and service was excellent!

Playa Hermosa
Car: necessary

Explored by horseback, foot, kayak or SUP, all trails lead to waterfalls, misty crater lakes or jungle-fringed, deserted beaches… Try zip lining, canopy tours, hiking, and surfing. Costa Rica’s adventures are all top notch and are all waiting for you.


Playa Hermosa, Playa Panama, And Playas Del Coco are great places to be based out of. Playa Hermosa has one of the safest and calmest beaches in Costa Rica.  In these beach towns, you will find and ample amount of restaurants and sodas plus grocery store’s and a few pharmacies. A soda is a small Costa Rican  family run  restaurant with fresh  home cooked food at reasonable prices.

South of Playas Del Coco there are some wonderful beaches to explore for day trips. Playa Conchal, Playa Flamingo, Playa Portrero, and Playa Dante are favorites. Tamarindo and Playa Grand are about 1.5 hours south. These two beaches are wonderful for surfing.

A bit further afield is the Arenal La Fortuna area. It is about a three hour drive Playa Hermosa. At 5,437 feet, the Arenal Volcano looms large and ominous over the pastured green hillsides that surround its base. Although currently in a resting phase, Arenal remained the country’s most active volcano for the past 43 years.

Simply put, Arenal is striking. It is a picture-perfect volcano which dominates the horizon, while rivers and waterfalls tumble through the rainforest that spreads across its base. To the south, the massive Lake Arenal stands sentry to the Tilarán Mountain Range, whose jagged green spine extends along Costa Rica’s central highlands.

From Arenal you can travel to the cloud forest of Monteverde – a nature lover's paradise. The town of Monteverde is fairly small with shopping and some great restaurants Enjoy a nature hike in the Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserve then opt to visit a butterfly garden, zipline through the canopy, or go horseback riding.

Take advantage from our local concierge’s knowledge of the country and come soak up the sun. What are you waiting for?
