Property description

We are located off the main highway that runs from La Fortuna to the Arenal Volcano. You will have the private guesthouse, pool & patio all to yourself on one acre in the beautiful countryside. The owners are on-site if you need anything at all to make your stay here in Costa Rica as wonderful as possible. The Villa Hermosa is located far enough for privacy & but close-enough to the attractions when you're ready to see the sights! The view of Volcano Arenal from the pool & patio is awesome and the amount of birds we get here is impressive.

The activities here are endless here...just about anything you want to do, you can find it here in the 'adventure capital of Costa Rica'!

Attention couples!: Whether you just got married, are celebrating a special occasion or are just looking for some privacy, this is the perfect place for you! You get all of the benefits of having a private guesthouse but have the owners close by if you need anything at all. We realize everybody is different so we ask you upon check-in what it is that you want from us so we can make sure you get it! If you don't want to see us for the entire visit, we'll do our best to make ourselves 'scarce'. If you enjoy having another couple around to chat with, we'll be there...whatever style works for you we'll do our best to make your stay here outstanding!

Attention families!: If you are looking for a place that it is safe for your kids to run around without worrying about them than Villa Hermosa is a good choice. We are a private property with a gated entrance and a fully-enclosed 1 acre property. We have native plants, trees, flowers, birds, butterflies and some frogs and other things that come to visit so your kids will have plenty to see. We have a view of the volcano from our private patio & pool and it's all yours...no need to share with 100's of other people like at large hotels!!! We have many games on-site that are good for both adults and children to play which include horseshoes, badminton, soft-tip lawn darts, soccer ball, frisbees and many more!

About the area...: We are just 15 minutes from the main road that runs from downtown La Fortuna up to the National Park & Lake. We are located in a beautiful area just outside the city where you can come home to a relaxing place after spending your day hiking or repelling down waterfalls! If you want an experience that is far different than that of staying at a hotel, than Villa Hermosa is for you.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: I moved here in November of 2009 and every day I still can't believe I get to call this gorgeous place home! I've created a very fulfilling life here by volunteering with animal rescue, creating a social club and volunteering with the orphanage and safe house for girls. Having the time to give back is a wonderful experience and helping people have a trip of a lifetime is very satisfying!

Why San Carlos, Costa Rica:
I looked at many properties all over the country and they were too hot, too many bugs, this or that. This was the second to last property looked at before driving to the airport in San Jose. I heard nothing but the MOO of a cow, there was a cool breeze and I couldn't see any neighbors...SOLD! Today we've re-planted the one acre property with tropical plants and have many local animals come to visit and even chose to live here. The more I travel around Costa Rica I realize I chose the perfect place for me.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
This is in a quiet neighborhood just 5 minutes from a true 'Tico' town...what La Fortuna center was probably like about 50 years ago. People wanting to experience the real Costa Rica and aren't afraid of a dirt road (smile), this is the place! We are also just 4km from The Springs Resort & Spa...one of my favorite places to go: food, hot springs, wildlife rescue, Club Rio and rock climbing. Pura Vida!
