About Scott Burch
I have been happily married for the past 18 years. My loving wife Joan and I have one child named Charlie who is now 17 years old. I was in Commercial Video Post Production business around 30 years, I have resigned from my company so I could pursue other ventures but still freelance a couple times per week. My future endeavors include helping better our environment, volunteer for my community and possibly get involved in health care as well as spending more time with my family. I have been on the east coast, in and around NYC my entire life. 11 years ago we went on a vacation to Costa Rica's Gulf of Papagayo, we loved it so much we purchased a condo a month later. Vista Bahia condominium/hotel (A Monarch Resort Property)of Playa Panama was a perfect place for us because of the location to and from the airport and the privacy it offers. After vacationing in this area for years we found & bought this Condo at Sol Y Mar in Playa Hermosa. It was spectacular and larger and more luxurious then the first condo we bought. We vacation here at least 3x a year. I am considering moving down to Costa Rica someday, hopefully sooner than later. I love fishing, working with my hands and many other hobbies.
Scott Burch purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Scott Burch chose Playa Hermosa
I chose this area because this unit is directly on the beautiful, uncrowded beach of the Pacific: it is ALSO poolside with a very short walk of 100 feet directly to the beach and ocean. The condo is the only one like it, this magnificent, luxurious unit has plenty of space for large families. It was built with incredible detail. I have always been a beach person and love to fish, exercise on the beach, swim and just relax. There is everything and nothing to do here, the choice is yours.
What makes this Condo unique
This is a new and modern home, a rarity on the beach in this small oceanside community of Playa Hermosa. Staying at Sol Y Mar is fun, relaxing and refreshing, and only a short distance from rafting, hot springs, mud baths, repelling and canopy tours through the tops of rain forest trees. A short distance from local surfing spots! Even the restaurants around the area are phenomenal! Our unit is on the bottom floor which is perfect for those who have mobilities issues.

We had a wonderful week on the beach. The location is superb, just steps to the pool and ocean! We were there during Holy Week and it is the busiest time of year. We never had a problem getting a pool chair or finding space on the beach. It is a very active place and we enjoyed every minute of it! Scott could not be more helpful coordinating any activity your heart desires. The restaurants in the surrounding area far exceeded my expectations. We can't wait to go back!
We are so happy to hear everyone had a wonderful week! Yes, our location is just perfect for families, literally steps to the pool and ocean. This is a one of a kind in Costa Rica. Crowds are never a problem in Pura Vida life. I have never seen it crowded since we have been going down, sometimes we have the condominium to ourselves. I take pleasure in helping guests make their vacations the best possible, once in a lifetime for some so I want to try my hardest to see they all enjoy. We love every restaurant too. There are so many to choose from in walking distance it is hard not to try each. Hope to see you back soon : )
Thank you for staying with us.
Still the best
We just got back from spring break. This is a wonderful place where we could step out right to the pool. The rooms are well decorated, a wonderful fully stocked kitchen and Scott is easy to work with. We had a great time.
This is your second visit with us and I really appreciate that you love it as much as us. It is alway nice to hear you all had a great time. As always when you want to return please let me know, I will lock in the rate from your first visit.
Have a great summer!
More than a place on the beach!
We were absolutely delighted with our stay at Sol y Mar. Our condo was clean, open, quiet and convenient. We spent a fair amount of time in the pool or ocean and added some snorkeling and a sunset cruise to our agenda. Taking side trips to the volcano, a river cruise and zip lining were easy and convenient. The 3 restaurants on the beach 200 yards away served good food and provided a short walk after dinner. There were also some excellent restaurants a short drive away. It was a great vacation.
I am so happy to hear you all had a great time and were delighted with your family vacation! I love it hear that guests love it as much as we do, I enjoy sharing the experience with others. It really is a special place. Having the convenience of restaurants and tours right at the door step is soooo nice. Hope to see you back soon.
We arrived at this beautiful home ready to enjoy a family vacation. The home was perfect in location, size and comfort. The pool leading to a beautiful beach and aqua blue sea is a sight to behold. My nine month granddaughter loved her first encounter with the sea.
The bedrooms and baths are spacious and the kitchen is well appointed. The outside patio was where we chilled out before dinner. The outdoor fans helped a lot.
The location is awesome. From the beach, just steps from the meticulously maintained pool, you can walk no more than 10- 15 minutes to five very good restaurants with varying fare.
The most appreciated aspect of this home is the gentleman owner, Scott. Before we left, Scott provided his own "travel brochure" outlining the best of costa rica. Restaurants, tours, don't miss sights and even the name of a great tour guide, was provided by him. Every question, no matter how mundane, was promptly answered. We were welcomed as friends. BRAVO to Scott. Thank you!
If you want a quiet place, accesible to the wonders of costa rica, this is the place for you. Enjoy.
Don't miss the Sunset!!!!
Thank you for all the kind words! I must say it sounds like you enjoyed it as much as we do. It really is a beautiful home and area we are in. I try my hardest to give every guest as much attention as they need to insure a fantastic vacation. I enjoy helping other so it comes easy to me.
Amazing Family Vacation at Sol Y Mar 3C
I would first like to thank Scott and his family for allowing us to use their wonderful condo. We appreciated the generousity of allowing for an early check-in as our flight arrived at 7am and with 2 kids made the transition very easy. We were a party of 6. All the information provided before we left and while we were there was appreciated and very helpful in planning our vacation.
The check in staff through Zindis group was great to work with and we even used their services to book an excursion to Palo Verde Wildlife Jungle Tour.
The location of this unit is perfect and we believe on the best beach in the area. Close to everything you need and great restrauants just a short walk down the beach. The sunsets were amazing, the pool was great for the kids and the unit was perfectly equipped.
One of the best decisions we made was to work with Scott's friend and local Ariel. Scott was gracioius enough to arrange a meeting on our first day and from there we made our arrangements. Ariel took us snorkeling and fishing on 2 separate occasion and both trips were amazing. We seen lots of fish snorkeling and my son caught his first fish ever a nice size tuna. We wanted to see tortuga's and Ariel deliveried with a little travel through the ocean. The fishing was one of many the highlights of of our trip. We also used Ariel as our personal guide to Ricon de la Vieja where we did ziplining, horseback riding and river tubing. We can not say enough about Ariel and we would highly recommend using his services as much as possible.
Overall this was an amazing owner to work with and an amazing spot. Would recommend this unit and spot to anyone looking to visit Costa Rica without hesitation. We might have to go back as there was several things we did not get complete on our list and this would be the place to stay.
Thanks again Burch family. Pura Vida!!!
You are certainly welcome! I am happy to hear you all loved it as much as us. My managers try to help out in anyway they can to make my guests stays perfect. I will let them know you liked their services. I will tell Ariel you enjoyed his tours, he loves to hear that. He tries so hard to make my guests enjoy every minute.
If I can do anything for you in the future just let us know.
Have a great Spring!
Great place in a great location.
This is very nice condo unit in a quiet, secure location. Suitable for families or several couples. Best unit of the complex, directly adjacent to the pool with a great beach view. Nice large covered patio with BBQ. The owner was very helpful with advice on nearby restaurants, tours, activities, etc. We were well prepared for our arrival. I recommend fishing with Ariel (friend of the owner) and dining at nearby La Casita, which is on the same beach, an easy walking distance away.
I am happy to here that you all had a great time and loved the condo. We think that too, the location, size and placement of the unit is perfect for families. No hassle of walking to the pool or beach or lugging things down stairs. Ariel does an excellent job showing all my guests a great time on the water, he loves it when guests mention him, I will let him know you enjoyed it so much.
La Casita del Marisco is the best on the beach right now. We always go there twice. They are getting so busy they actually said they couldn’t prepare our fish we caught one day. I understood so we went to Roberto’s to have it cooked up. The next night we came in earlier and they hooked us up.
If there is anything I can help you with in the future, just let me know. I lock in the rates for returning guests.
