About Chris & Mièle
We moved to Costa Rica over 15 and 25 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 Playa Hermosa
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 from all the great activities. 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 !

Beautiful, serene, private, and clean - highly recommend
Every morning, we would have our coffee on the relaxing back patio listening to the birds and the animals sing their songs of the day with nothing but green in sight. This was our favorite spot in the house. The house was very clean and provided the necessary amenities.
The house is in a private, guarded subdivision with families who reside there and there is a communal pool. For the majority of our time at the pool, we were completely alone. Lush plants and trees outlined the pool area, making the view and the sunset a magical experience.
It's located a few blocks away from Playa Hermosa and it's a very easy drive to the main road and only a ten minute drive to Jacó, a busy surf town with lots to do.
Chris and Miele were great! Super efficient communicators, easy check-in, each check-out.
Yallah, I highly recommend you stay here, it was loooovely. pura vida.
Cozy, place with private/shared pool and awesome balcony
My wife and I lucked out and were the only ones staying in the short-term villa area, where we had the pool and grilling area to ourselves. The place was nice, clean and AC bedrooms were perfect at night. Miele was very accommodating and wen out of her way to open up our unit when we accidentally locked ourselves out! Would recommend for someone who wants to see some tropical birds during a morning walk (we saw a macaw) and have a full kitchen!
Everything we (two couples) expected as well documented on the reviews. Highly recommended for any Costa Rica stay.
Everything you need!
Great little villa! Close to Playa Hermosa but out of the fray. Comfortable and practical living and well located for all kinds of activities and day trips. Chris and Mièle are friendly and helpful in every way you'd hope.
Everything was exc!
We loved our stay here
Thank you Sofía !
Clean and comfortable
We enjoyed the property and pool immensely and it was a lovely wander to the waterfall. Good space for cooking and sleeping. Sofa was a bit hard, but who sits for long in Costa Rica?! Would recommend to friends.
Thank you Becky !
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.
