About Leticia Cespedes

Hola!! My name is Leticia Cespedes and I own Las Brisas Villa #2 in the village of Playa Hermosa. I grew up most of my life living in the Los Angeles County. I have two adult daughters and one granddaughter. I've been married for 40 years to my loving Costa Rican husband. We both work in Real Estate and currently are semi-retired. We visit several times a year to visit family, friends and of course Playa Hermosa for relaxation. I hope you are able to enjoy this lay back friendly beach town and the beach with many activities to do as much as I have over 20 years. Also, please contact me I like to give discounts to my guests!

Leticia Cespedes purchased this villa in 2011

Why Leticia Cespedes chose Playa Hermosa

My husband and I have been visiting this area of Guanacaste for over 20 years with family and friends. The reasons we purchased this vacation home are for the convenience of having a home near the beach, for its peacefulness and relaxation. Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste has soft waves, warm weather and beautiful sunsets. Aside being a sleepy beach town you can still find good restaurants, bars and nice people. On the beach there are so many activities to keep you busy and have lots of fun.

What makes this villa unique

The unique benefits that you will find is the one minute walk to the beach, the ocean view from the balcony, the saltwater pool, 24/7 security and the complimentary use of the amenities at the Condovac Resort next door.

Fabulous Condo Playa Hermosa

  • 5 of 5

Great location for this big beautiful condo. One block from a beautiful, quiet beach this condo had everything we needed for a great stay at Playa Hermosa - wish we could have stayed longer than the 4 nights we had left in CR! The condo pool is a delight and the grounds and condo are beautifully kept. We used the Condovac infinity pool for a great sunset view overlooking the whole bay as well as eating at the great beachfront restaurants within easy walking distance. We loved Aqua Sport Bistro especially. The open concept kitchen/living room and outside eating area made our meals a delightful experience. We will definitely be back if we're lucky enough to get back of Playa Hermosa. Thanks for a wonderful experience - Pura Vida!!

Owner's Response: That's the nice thing about Villa #2, if you want to dine-in the kitchen is fully equipped. There's also a Bar-B-Que grill and a patio table that seats 6 persons. Or if you like to eat out there are numerous restaurants across the street that serve delicious food and have wonderful views of the beach & sunsets. Hopefully when you decide to return to Playa Hermosa for a longer stay please visit Las Brisas Villa #2.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

As I’m sitting on the couch sipping my coffee, listening to the monkeys hollow and the waves crashing.. I don’t want to leave. It’s been 9 wonderful days of sightseeing, swimming in the ocean, beautiful sunset and eating great seafood.

The location of this condo is great, far away and quite, but yet close to everything. The condo is self is in good conditions. With some minor fixes it would be a five stars. Internet is not the best, couple of light bulbs are burned out, the dryer leave streaks on white clothes, air conditioner in the master bedroom is really loud, and rattled a lot makes it hard to sleep. Besides some of these minors things I would stay here again. Thanks Costa Rica for a great vacation.. Mia and family.

Owner's Response: Yes Villa #2 at Las Brisas is close enough to hear the waves at the beach and the hollower monkeys are usually next door where you can see & hear them. Regarding the repairs that have now been taken care of and I thank you for mentioning them to me. We do have a property manager on site that will take care of repairs during your stay. I would like to welcome you and your family on your return trip to Playa Hermosa.

Great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

Family of 5 spent 8 nights here after 2 nights of adventure at Hacienda Guachepelin. The villa was well appointed, very spacious and we enjoyed the views, pool, beach, Condovac and wonderful dining options. Location was great and took day trips to Playa Flamingo, Playa Coco and Llanos de Cortez waterfall south of Liberia. Wifi was an issue most days- also for neighbors but we (kids especially) would go to Condovac to get.

Nice property with some maintenance issues

  • 3 of 5

The pros of our stay at Playa Hermosa vacation home:

The home is very spacious and very convenient to Hermosa Beach. It was clean and well stocked. The condo community it is located in was gated with 24 hour security. Costa Rica is beautiful with LOTS to do. WIfi was great in the condo. The grocery store was convenient and restaurants around the area very good.

The cons of out stay at Playa Hermosa vacation home:

When we arrived there was no one there to let us in and show us around. We were informed that we would not be allowed to check in without signing documents and getting information from "Concita". The keys were left with the Guards at the gate and they did not speak English. The door lock did not work to the main door (sliding glass door) or upstairs sliding glass door. The second bathroom shower did not work. It only dripped. There was a kitchen cabinet that was not attached to the wall and dangerously sitting beside the sink. My son almost fell to the ground when leaning on it. We brought all of these issues to the attention of the owner and attempted to find someone associated with the condo community. We heard back from no one for 4 days. The day before we left, they attempted to fix the lock and attached the cabinet. The shower was never fixed. The lock still did not work, nor did the safe that we tried to use. We were told the safe did not work for a while. The AC unit in the kitchen did not work either.

The resort that is available for use was difficult to find on our own. It is up the hill to the left, taking a shuttle. When walking there through the gates at the back of the condo, no one knew where to send us to get wristbands or that the condo was at all associated with the resort.

We rented a car (highly recommended) and discovered SO many beautiful beaches and areas outside of Hermosa Beach. I would certainly visit Costa Rica again and imagine that because it was off season, the condo was not as well maintained and staff was not available.

Owner's Response: Dear Heather, I'm happy to hear that you found Las Brisas Villa #2 to be spacious, convenient and well stocked. Although I'm sorry to hear you had difficulties not locating the property manager. I did speak with the property manager and she did mentioned she had an emergency and was at the hospital. But she did leave the keys with her helper and instructed her to hand over the keys to you. You did mentioned this to me in an email. On my Rental Agreement w/ Directions & Instructions that I give to all my Guests contains contact emails and telephone numbers with the property managers included. It states for the Guests to make a copy of the contract and to bring it along with them to Costa Rica as reference. It also includes on where and how to have access to the Condovac Resort next door. I have notified the property manager of the repairs and they are being repaired as of now. Thank you for your review as it will help me improve my place.

Pura Vida!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful condo. Lots of windows, clean inside and out. Took full advantage of amenities at Condovac next door. Roberto's right across the street serves killer seafood and so much. Leticia was very attentive as was Candida and the guards were very pleasant. More than enough room for my family of 7. Great stay and we will be back. Pura Vida!
