Guestbook comments from the owner

"Our stay in the Costa Rica Villa Ventanas was amazing! We soaked up the sun, the greenery and the magnificent views from this stunning home that overlooks Playa Hermosa. Our stay was very comfortable - truly a home-away-from-home. While the kids splashed around in the beautiful pool, we were able to sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery from the expansive patio - exactly what we needed. Every day, we explored the area, ate the local food and experienced numerous exciting adventures. Costa Rica was completely the trip of a life-time!"

Vacation Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This home was the highlight of our vacation to the beautiful Costa Rica. After very full and tiring days out in the hot sun and beautiful beaches the respite of this home was priceless. It is set back in a safe private community but accessible to all that Playa Coco and Hermosa have to offer. Other beaches in the area are only a 20-30 minute scenic drive where you get to see Costa Rican life. The cultural experience of renting and commuting by car rather then staying on resort is unmatched. The home is beautifully appointed, well maintained and very clean. The infinity pool is how we began and ended most days. The bedrooms are spacious and equally lovely. We went with our children so we got the master but if traveling with other adults I would be satisfied with any bedroom. There are 2 additional twin beds in a first floor bedroom. We hired Rocio for my husbands birthday dinner. We enjoyed in the home and it was delicious and she made him a wonderful birthday cake and decorated with balloons and a pinata. This home far exceeded our expectations!

Incredibly beautiful home, great location

  • 5 of 5

This home was beautiful, well maintained and perfect in every way for our group of six adults. We could have stayed "home" all day just enjoying the pool, but the beach and surrounding area were great too. Great team managing the place - very helpful and responsive to your needs. We hope to return here for another visit soon.

I completely agree with everyone else who gave this five stars. Beautiful house, amenities, and location

My wife and I, our two sons, one daughter-in-law and three grandchildren enjoyed this great place. We cooked and ate there, went out to the local restaurants some nights or ordered pizza, travelled around this part of the country to the nice beaches, the Arenal volcano and hot springs, did some SCUBA and some hiking in the jungle and some zip lining. Of course, we spend plenty of time in the very nice pool enjoying the view of Hermosa and good having times with family, My wife and I went for morning walks at 6 AM most days and usually saw the same troop of monkeys in different spots around the area. The owner and property managers were great to deal with, friendly, accommodating, and responsive. We all had an excellent holiday as a result!

Beautiful home in an amazing setting!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about our stay in Costa Rica overall, however it was that much better to have this beautiful home to stay in! The view was just incredible and the infinity pool was so impressive. The adult kids never got bored when we spent one day diving as they found a way to entertain themselves all day in the house and in the pool. We didn't bother to cook meals except breakfast here, but it is fully equipped and that is certainly an option. The beds are comfortable and each bedroom has its own air conditioning unit! I will definitely be a return guest next year!

Amazing place, incredible views

  • 5 of 5

Spent an incredible week here relaxing and enjoying the area. Great food and drink near, but bought fresh fish and cooked at the house often. The house is top notch with all of the amenities you need. Best part was sitting around the pool at night watching the stars.

Awesome Family Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently spent a week in this wonderful home. The description of the home is accurate and the owners were wonderful to work with. They gave us plenty of information about the home and area prior to our arrival. The property manager also met us in town and we followed him to the house where he gave us a folder of info regarding things to do and place to go. We have two children (ages 9 and 11) who loved the pool area. The town of Playa Hermosa is wonderfully small, all the locals are so friendly. Every morning I walked from the house to the beach and back, the little hill will work off any excess calories you consume while on your trip! The locals and expats that I met along my walk were very friendly. Car rental is a must. We went to several local restaurants and excursions, I will try to list and tell a little about them for those who are interested. Father Rooster's has the best Nachos and Margarita's, The Black beach there is cool, but remember your water shoes, sand is hot! Donde Johan's food was okay, could have been what we ordered, (pizza) atmosphere, staff and owner were all very nice, I would go back just for that reason. We went sailing with Ferit, wonderful day, couldn't ask for a better trip, very accommodating. (Daryl the property manager can give you his number) Had dinner on the beach at Roberto's, had great Shrimp, and drink specials. Also had dinner out last night at Ginger's our only regret is that we didn't go here earlier in the week so we could have gone there twice!! It is a tapas restaurant, so don't expect large portions but my husband and I ordered 5 different items between the two of us and ended up bringing home left overs. Went to Palo Verde National Park, Luis was our tour guide, very nice guy, tour was nice unfortunately we only saw the monkeys from afar. Bring some bananas with you if you do this tour...especially if you want to see monkeys close up. Lunch at a small local town on this tour was very authentic, worth the little extra $. After the tour they take you to watch a local make pottery..it is beautiful. I purchased a very large bowl at a expensive price, my fault for not trying to negotiate but after you sit there and watch a guy make one on a wheel and tell you how long it takes to make I had a hard time haggling now knowing what I know I would have.
