There is grocery stores, banks, Clinics, Spas, beauty salons, pharmacies, many restaurants to choose from (we recommend sushi at Tsunami, or at Arigato), casinos, juice bars (try “Mandarina´s”, it is one of our favorite!), mail office, Gyms, Bakeries, souvenir shops… etc…

Or just stay at home and enjoy a delicious cup of coffee on your private terrace, as you watch the parrots, the toucans and the macaws flying overhead. Or maybe go for a walk, or even for a swim at the waterfall just a few minutes away on the property. You might even see the white face monkeys jumping from tree to tree!

About Chris & Mièle

We moved to Costa Rica over 10 and 20 years ago respectively. We love it here ! And we want to share it with you.

Chris & Mièle purchased this villa in 2013

Why Chris & Mièle chose Puntarenas

Our properties have a little of everything. It´s nice to be close from town but not in the middle of it. It´s also located just a few minutes from the beach. And very secure. It´s perfect to enjoy nature.

What makes this villa unique

We have a waterfall just a few minutes away on the property. Just a few minutes walk from your door step !

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Villa was spotless, quiet, tranquil and relaxing! We had the pool to ourselves the 5 nights we stayed, Macaws flying by and eating nearby were picturesque, waterfall was an added bonus! Close to town, yet far enough for the crowds. Can not go wrong with making Opera Hills Villas a must stay!

Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Chris and Miele are so nice and helpful. Miele was very responsive to messages and Chris was a great help when it came to places to eat/pick up groceries. The property is beautiful and quiet. Waking up to the sound of parrots may not seem relaxing, but somehow, it became one of my favorite sounds to wake up to. We loved that the property was tucked away from the beach, but close enough to be able to go to the beach every day. We will absolutely stay at one of Chris and Miele's properties again in the near future.

Great location, great villa!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this villa with our two young children and we had a wonderful time. The villa is well equipped, the location is calm, and only 5 minutes from the Hermosa beach. The pool is clean and pleasant. The little private waterfall is a gem! Mièle also helped us to plan our stay. Really, you will enjoy it!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

It is as nice as you can imagine looking at the photos on their site. The pool area is great and we were alone there. We have appreciated our 2-night stay in a house which was giving us a break from being in hotels. We felt at home, were able to cook and watch TV (Apple TV). Hope you'll have the chance to see parrots like we did... and we had a little lizard friend by the house too!

Playa Hermosa is one of the most famous surfing beaches in Costa Rica, producing a world class wave.

It is a beautiful and quiet beach. Between the months of July and December, it also becomes one of Costa Rica´s sea turtle nesting site. Where lucky nature watchers can see these lovely beasts; coming ashore at night, to lay their eggs on secluded beaches.

We definitely recommend having a vehicle, although it is not strictly necessary. There are many places to visit and all kind of activities to do just a short drive away from our properties.

Since this a very touristic area, you can find many activities to enjoy outdoors with family and friends.

We definitely recommend the CANOPY TOUR, it´s a very cool experience to be traveling across the jungle from tree to tree !

We also recommend ATV Tours. You can choose from a couple of hours to a full day tour. You will be traveling on dirt roads in the mountains, thru little rural towns. If you prefer to be a little more adventurous, and if you have motorcycle experience. We also own COSTA RICA UNLIMITED: The best Dirt bike tour company in Costa Rica! We get riders from all over the world. In case you might be interested to join us on the best ride of your life ;-) One thing is for sure, if you choose this activity, you will enjoy some of the most amazing views around.

If you want to walk around nature and do some wildlife viewing, we recommend 'Manuel Antonio National Park' (about 45 min south), you will see all kinds of animals, and don´t forget your swim suit, there is also a amazing white sand beach, and some very good restaurants!

Horseback riding is also a very good option. Talk to our good friend Andrea, she will be happy to take you for an astonishing ride on the beach, rivers and jungle. 100% fun Guaranty !

Restaurants / drinks and others:

In Playa Hermosa you can find a few small restaurants. We recommend VIDA Hermosa. They have the best refreshing smoothies, and a variety of delicious meals you can enjoy while you look at the ocean!

In Jacó (15 min North) you can find pretty much everything you need. There is grocery stores, banks, Clinics, Spas, beauty salons, pharmacies, many restaurants to choose from (we recommend sushi at Tsunami, or Arigato), casinos, juice bars (try “Mandarina´s”, it is one of our favorite!), mail office, Gyms, Bakeries, souvenir shops…

Or just stay at home and enjoy a cup of coffee on your private terrace, as you watch the parrots, the toucans and the macaws flying overhead. Or maybe go for a walk, or even for a swim at the waterfall that is just a few minutes walk away on our properties. You might even see the white face monkeys jumping from tree to tree!
