Incredibly beautiful views in a large and lovely Playa Hermosa home

  • 4 of 5

We could not have been happier with our views and the amount of space we had in this beautiful gated community home. The owners are dividing the largest master to create a 5th bedroom which was not available at the time we were there, but that was not a problem and the master is still quite large. We were entertained by the birds and butterflies regularly drinking from the pool and large iguanas sunning on the deck. We even had a coati visit the yard. The house is not within easy walking distance of the beach, as it is about a mile away and up a very steep incline, but the location is nice and we enjoyed the quiet beaches at Playa Hermosa and Ocotal and Panama for swimming, sailing, snorkeling and fishing. We were less fond of the busy Del Coco Playa, but the town provided a good place for buying groceries. We did walk/run in the neighborhood daily and got a workout from the steep roads. We cooked several meals in the house and also brought a chef in to cook one night. (We highly recommend the personal chef option. We had an incredible meal for 4 for less than $40 per person.). We are giving a 4 star rating rather than 5 because of some disappointment in kitchen supplies and appliances. There was no dish washing detergent, very few glasses, and only a half of teaspoon of salt, no pepper or other seasonings or staples and overall pots and pans were of a much lesser quality than we'd normally use - as in much scuffed non-stick aluminum pots and pans, a blender that struggled to blend mangos and bananas and dusty placemats. However, the house is lovely, the location and price is good and the people attending were excellent.

Owner's Response: Dear Kay, Thank you for staying with us. The iguanas are quite something! The fauna is spectacular here and never disappoints. We appreciate you taking the time to let us know about the household items that are not up to snuff. The owners have already acquired new high end kitchenware which is unavailable locally. Thank you for the kind words with our chef service. It is a wonderful amenity that our future guests should be taking available of. If you would like to visit again, please let us know and we will extend you a great rate! Kind regards, The Zindis Group

Best ocean and sunset view

  • 5 of 5

Debbie and I enjoyed our time at this remarkable mountainside home overlooking the ocean. The vistas are magnificient all day long and well into the evening, with the best sunsets imaginable. Excursions to the beach, restaurants, horseback riding, zip lines or just about any activity you'd like, are easily accomplished. After all is said, the best part is relaxing at this great home, having dinner on the terrace or floating around in the infinity pool while taking in the spectacular view!

Beautiful home with incredible view

  • 5 of 5

We were privileged enough to stay at this home twice. What a wonderful view with everything you need. All four bedrooms have their own full bath and each are very spacious. There is a full kitchen and seperate dining area with full amenities. The infinity pool and outside patio are to die for with the best sunset views you'll ever see. Just absolutely gorgeous. We're happy we were able to visit Costa Rica and it's wonderful culture. We would also like to add the local Costa Ricans are wonderful and most friendly. If we are ever able to visit Costa Rica again, this is the place we are staying.

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?
