About the property

Beautiful villa on the hill with ocean view. 3 bedroom , 2 bathroom.

The beautiful Playa Hermosa located in Guanacaste is just 20-25 minutes from the Daniel Oduber International Airport in Liberia. One of the best maintained beaches in the country, Playa Hermosa, offers visitors crystal clear blue waters and gorgeous scenery, making it a very popular beach strip on the west coast. Hermosa, which means "beautiful" in Spanish, is an aptly named gray-sand beach that perches between two mountains. In fact there are two Playa Hermosas, the other being in the Central Pacific Coast near Jaco. Guanacaste's Playa Hermosa is situated between Playa del Coco and Playa Panama, Hermosa is seldom as crowded as its neighbors. It is a fabulous getaway for those seeking quality relaxation. Most visitors bring a blanket and sunscreen to soak up Guanacaste's burning sun, and due to its calm surf, Hermosa is a favorite for swimmers. To my delight, Guanacaste has its own Blue Zone – the Nicoya Peninsula!

The villa located on a hill of "Hermosa Heights" community, offering an amazing view without forgetting gorgeous sunsets. This is a lovely 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom house conveniently located in 10 minutes driving from Coco beach and 20-25 minutes driving from airport Liberia. The property located in approximately twelve, fifteen minutes walk by normal pace from one of the most beautiful and quiet beaches of Costa Rica surrounded by rich vegetation.

There two ways to reach the beach by walking distance , the right turn from the community to the beach is longer, passing "Liperon" store & then passing across a narrow road. The turn to the left side from community is shorter, this way passing also across a road passing by the bar- restaurant & pizzeria "Bocelli".

In hot the weather in a day time I would recommend use bikes or car to reach beach, will take 3 minutes. In a hot time of the day best way to wear a hat and sunglasses!

Costa Rica’s reputation as a tropical paradise precedes it and with sun, sea, and surf, its notoriety is well deserved. Though just the size of West Virginia, this country boasts a wide range of different climates, so there really is something for everyone.

The rainforests of the southern Pacific coast are warm and humid, with heavy , short rains (usually after noon & sometimes at night) in the rainy bloom season. But many expats live in homes set on the hillsides overlooking the vast green jungles and glittering ocean. At elevation, the weather is cooler than at sea level and benefits from cooling ocean and mountain breezes. Some expats here actually don’t use much air conditioning if their home was built to take advantage of these breezes.

Outside the house adorned by lush garden leading to the patio and dreamy infinity ocean view from private pool. Comfortably furnished patio creating a cozy atmosphere for relaxing evenings in a beauty of enchanting nature. Inside the villa is decorated in warm colors of calm and serenity. It is perfect for couples & families or group of friends who wishes to stay in a serene place. Down below the community a large pool with two slides have a fun for adult and kids. And a good size private pool where you will relax with your family and watch beautiful sunsets.


Perfect for swimming and scuba diving, Playa Hermosa offers amazing diving safaris and snorkeling opportunities for those who enjoy being out in the sea. With some of the best scuba diving in the country, you can also have great fun renting out kayaks, sailboards, windsurfing equipment, canoes, jet skis and water bikes from the many shops that line the beach.

This inviting villa offers 1 Master bedroom with a suite bathroom and 2 other bedrooms sharing a second bathroom. The garden plants around the house provide additional privacy from the neighboring houses. Beautifully barred windows allow you to enjoy the fresh breeze and feel very safe with open windows at night time. Each room has an air conditioner and fans for guests who prefer a fresh air. The parking space in a seconds walk from the house.

Enjoy the peacefulness of this property, close your eyes and let yourself swept away by the song of the waves breaking on the beach..

Some interesting facts about Guanacaste..

In the Northwest of the country is the province of Guanacaste. In the province are the best beaches in Costa Rica , but not all the attractions of this area of ​​the country associated with the blue and warm ocean and sandy beaches. There are also plenty of pristine rivers, volcanoes and important protected areas , such as the National Park Santa Rosa which is home to 10 different habitats, including mangroves , swamps and evergreen and dry forests . Another National Park volcano Rincon de la Vieja is a haven for many species of birds and wild animals , impressive lush , boiling mud geysers , refreshing rivers and waterfalls .

In Guanacaste very advantageous geographical position - despite the tropical climate , the rains here are rare, even in the rainy season , but the sun shines in the province and constantly maintains a temperature not lower than 23 degrees Celsius.

You can visit other places of interest , such as Monteverde and La Fortuna, with an impressive active volcano Arenal . In both places , you will find a wide selection of tours , including tours under the dome of the jungle , horseback riding, bird watching and hiking.

Received its name from the name of the province of Guanacaste tree ( enterolobium krugloplodny ), which grows everywhere and is one of the national symbols of Costa Rica.

For the guests who likes a grilled meal I would recommend a grill restaurant right next to the ocean on Hermosa beach. Many guests really likes this place. If you will need a crib or a chef, a maid, or a babysitter etc.. will be organized by your request. On the way from airport Liberia many a rental car places. It's easy to rent a car, and there a big choice. Next to airport you can in any time easy find the red taxi cars. The concierge with pleasure will recommend you excursions, and a tour company, if you will have questions on this subject. The management company located right down below our community.

Perfect Villa for Family or Couples Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Marina's villa did not disappoint. The amenities were awesome - especially our private pool. The location is perfect - close to all of the restaurants and beaches in Playa Hermosa and an easy drive to adjacent beaches. Steve with the Zindis Group met us late (we arrived around 9 p.m.) and walked us through our villa, a map of the local area and gave us great ideas on what to see locally. We emailed a grocery list to the folks at Zindis and they stocked the kitchen with our requests. The service was wonderful! We booked an excursion through Tico Tours (they have a desk in the Zindis Group's office) and everything was first rate. Tico Tours helped us set up a half day fishing charter with the guys who own the vessel Patron. They were wonderful and it was the highlight of the trip. An excellent Villa - clean and fully stocked. I would highly recommend this property.

Stunning location with ocean views from the master bedroom and balcony .

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Mari's villa with another couple for a week and absolutely loved it!!!! The location is peaceful and the ocean views from the balcony were a highlight for all. The villa was large and comfortable - wonderful to have two bathrooms and laundry availability as well. Mari was pleasant to deal with and always returned emails and readily answered questions and offered advice to make our stay more enjoyable . I HIGHLY recommend this location and villa as a wonderful retreat if you are looking for peace and tranquility . The beach is about 3 km away and we enjoyed the daily walk to Playa Hermosa. We hope to be back next year!

Beautiful View

  • 5 of 5

Hi, I stay in this condo some months ago but I didn't want to miss the opportunity to write about it.

The condo it's great as the photos show it, very comfortable IMO for 4 adults and 3 or 4 kids, it has a great view, the pool is amazing and also you could use the resort pool. It's well equipped and Edgar who received us was extremely servicial and helpful.

The area is beautiful, Playa Hermosa feels actually as the same beach from some years ago, with the Costa Rica feeling, with local supermarkets.

Also if you want more commercial activity, by a short drive you could find Automercado (a big supermarket chain) and Hard Rock Cafe among others.

The condo it's a short and easy drive from Liberia Airport, if you are arriving to San Jose (Juan Santamaria) I'll recommend you stay one night close to the airport and depart early because it can take 4 to 5 hours.

And the communicaion with with Lisa (the owner) was great, very friendly.

100% recommended!.

Pretty View

  • 4 of 5

The house was a nice size for the five of us and the neighborhood security was great. It was easy to have tour operators pick us up from this location. We were hoping to cook more at the house, but the small kitchen along with few dishes, cups, and cooking utensils had us eating out more than we had planned. Showers are huge and master bedroom is good size. Other two rooms are small with limited storage space. Playa Hermosa is a fairly quiet location compared to beaches farther south.

Pure Bliss and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We spent 8 days in this beautiful house for our honeymoon! We couldn't have picked a better place to start our new marriage and make lasting memories. The pictures of this house do not do the view justice. Everyone at Hermosa Heights was friendly and helpful. From the time we arrived, daily check ins, even checked on our saftey as the first hurricane in over 100 years was heading our way and mAde certain we arrived to the airport on time the next day. The house is pretty centrally located to several very good restaurants , grocery store, beach and even a on site movie theater. My husband and I chose to take tours with Mardigi Tours (which I would highly recommend) for each tour we chose to do, they were promptly waiting at our door to pick us up for the daily adventure. We took private drivers to other places we wanted to explore. We did not want to hassle with renting a car and this method seemed to work well for us. We walked to a lot of our destinations in playa hermosa which was very enjoyable (except for the steep hill on the way back to the house ;-) ) I would highly recommend this house to any of my family and friends and I look forward to staying here again on our next trip to Costa Rica! Pura Vida
