About Granera Family

We are a family of 5, Nicole and Carlos, and 3 girls. We love surfing and life at the beach so divide our time between San Jose and Playa Hermosa. We have an onsite manager, Diane, that will welcome you and help with any arrangements.

Granera Family purchased this villa in 2011

Why Granera Family chose Playa Hermosa

We love Playa Hermosa and have a property close by on the mountain. We've been coming here to vacation for the past 10 years and buying Casa Mia and remodeling the hotel has been a project we've enjoyed with all our heart.

What makes this villa unique

Taking walks on the black sand beach, the surfing, the magnificent sunsets, are a few of my favorite things about living here. From the deck chairs surrounding the pool or cooking in the outdoor kitchen, you can see, feel, and hear the ocean and enjoy the breeze. Our rooms are clean and comfortable but you will prefer to read a book under the sun umbrella with a cool drink in hand.The location is perfect for many different day trips, such as canopy tours or Manuel Antonio Park, where you can see monkeys and sloths.

Everything we could have asked for.

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of 18 that stayed at the house for a week. It was perfect, with lots of room for everyone. The support staff was amazing, and worked continually to keep it up to par. We hired Chef Erick to cook for us a couple days, and we would highly recommend him. The meals were excellent. There was nothing we had to do for the meal prep and clean-up at all. We were planning a wedding when we first got there and Erick had connections to bring all that planning done efficiently. He was also able to get a van to take us to Jaco, and arranged the zip lining tour. Nicole and Carlos went beyond the call of duty to make sure our stay was perfect.

There are restaurants close by, if cooking wasn't an option. Laundry was walking distance

, and the convenience store. The beach kept the bigger kids entertained for hours, the waves were quite large, and it was good for surfers, unfortunately, not good for younger kids.

Jaco was a short drive for the more major grocery trips.

All in all, this is a highly recommended house!!

Thank you to Nicole, Carlos, Erick, and our cleaning staff for making our week so memorable.

What can I say, Casa Mia was beyond our wildest expectations. Just 5 min south of Jaco in a quaint little beach side village, Playa Hermosa sits Casa Mia. Once through the gates, it opens up to an absolutely brilliant outdoor area, with an aptly sized pool as the centre piece. An incredible outdoor, covered kitchen area to the left and plenty of lounging space by the pool. Walk down the steps to a large grassy area, well kept with a fountain and access to a sensational black sand beach with crashing ocean waves, surfers etc... Carlos and Nicole were amazing hosts, arranging bus transport, plenty of filtered water and anything else we required. Chef Erick w is an absolute MUST! I feel as though we met a true friend in Erick. We hired him for the entire week for our group of 15, and he never disappointed! We got married at Casa Mia, and Catherine at Costa Rica Paradise Weddings was an absolute star, everything went off without a hitch and the beach just before sunset made the perfect location for our small party.

All rooms are air conditioned, nicely appointed, and comfortable especially seeing as though the only thing you'll be in there for is sleeping, including a nice cool afternoon nap. Sonia the cleaner was absolutely brilliant as well. She kept the place in order all week long, each morning was like a reset! If we have have a group of people back in Costa Rica again, Casa Mia will absolutely be our destination, I can't thank everyone enough for the amazing week we had. Thanks so much!

Don't pass this place up!

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely stunning! It's located right on the beach, and was very clean. My fiance and I had our wedding here, and Carlos and Nicole made sure everything was perfect. They had recommendations for things to do around the area, a caterer, and were awesome to talk to.

The location is perfect and quiet. We had a pair of macaws visit us every day, there were tons of iguanas in the yard and on the roof, and we even saw bats hanging out around the property. We enjoyed relaxing in the pool and on the beach and watching all the wildlife that was around.

We would highly recommend staying here!
