About the Property
2 bedroom villa, close to beach, great hiking & waterfalls!
Arriving at the villa, you'll be greeted with a bouquet of fresh flowers and a welcome basket of fresh local fruit. You'll feel right at home within minutes! Perhaps you want a place to enjoy Playa Hermosa’s beach and surfing, but don't want the 'hotel' atmosphere, this villa has all the comforts of home. The villa has a wonderful large pool just steps outside your front door, and a terrace surrounded by tropical flowers. So you may want to just lounge around the pool or relax under the trees with a good book. If you are interested in exploring Costa Rica's natural beauty, just a short hike away are beautiful waterfalls where you might see the gorgeous blue morpho butterflies or white faced monkeys. The Opera Salvaje area is a natural flyway for the Imperial Scarlet Macaws; their distinctive brilliant red and cobalt blue coloration can be seen as the birds fly in early morning or mid-afternoon to feed on the fruits of the trees ringing the community.
Built in Spanish Mediterranean architecture, with 15 foot high ceilings of exposed teak beams and an open floor plan, your villa has a fully-equipped kitchen, spacious living area and two master bedrooms, identical in size (both very large) with one offering a queen size bed and the other with two queen size beds. The large, walk-in shower is made of slate stone, and completely open with a rainforest showerhead. Sleep in the most comfortable pillow-top beds furnished with top quality soft linens and wake up to enjoy your morning coffee on the terrace.
As you sit by the pool and listen to the multitude of birds indigenous to this area you will understand why the neighborhood was named Opera Salvaje. The development owner, because of the many birds singing every morning, called it a 'wild opera'. The large, perfectly maintained pool is shared by only four privately owned villas.
Our neighborhood is one of a handful of neighborhoods in Playa Hermosa offering excellent drinking water because we’re on a deep well which is also filtered.
We will make any tour reservations for you! Our guests receive between 10% and 20% discounts at local tours such a the canopy zip lines, deep sea fishing, white water rafting and more.
All of Playa Hermosa restaurants and bars are within 5 minutes. The following is a list of activities, all within walking distance (meaning less than 5 minutes walking): Vida Asana, a yoga retreat about 5 minute walk from the house, in an outside palm thatch asana, with a stream running next to it. There are sessions scheduled throughout the day to fit YOUR time, and we have received great feedback from our previous guests. The neighborhood has an Olympic size swimming pool and for a small fee you can take swim lessons, or simply exercise with laps.
New mountain bike trails have been established in our neighborhood, the first in the Jaco area. Hiking is a very popular activity here; 100 yards from your front door there are numerous trails to explore to waterfalls, up mountains, into the rain forest or simply to the beach.
Los Suenos Marina with world class sport fishing is about a 20 minute drive.
h2o Adventures offers amazing white water rafting and is about 40 minute away. Canopy Vista Los Suenos, ranked one of the best canopies in the area is about a 15 minute drive.
The one hour drive to San Jose and the Juan Santamaria airport on a four-lane modern freeway makes Villa Amigos the perfect location for a quick vacation getaway.
Looking forward to seeing you soon. Pura Vida!

About: We've lived in Costa Rica for 13 years, in the same neighborhood, Opera Salvaje. We LOVE this area.
Why Playa Hermosa, Puntarenas, Costa Rica:
The home is a beautiful design, perfect for relaxing. It's close to the beach, close to hiking & mountain biking. And most important is its a very safe (guarded) and quiet neighborhood - it's nice to have the night life of Jaco close, but its great to come back to a quiet neighborhood. We especially like the large pool.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
It's a great place to use as a 'home base', you can do so many day trips and explore much of Costa Rica, while have a beautiful, safe location to return to. And the neighborhood's proximity to surfing, hiking, mountain biking, yoga studio - it really has it all!
