Beautiful, serene, private, and clean - highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

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.

Amazing Privacy and Experience

  • 5 of 5

The stay here was amazing! Really enjoyed the location and privacy. We were perfect distance from everything, the pool was amazing, and the small hike to the waterfall was great. We really felt as we were staying in the forest with all the wild animal noises we would hear at night. The home was great. I would suggest an AC in the living room as that is where we spent most of the time in the house and it got pretty hot so we would all just relax in the rooms instead where the AC was amazing. Beautiful place and we would definitely stay here again.

Cozy, place with private/shared pool and awesome balcony

  • 4 of 5

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!

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

I live in Miami (born in Costa Rica), I have all of my fathers family in Costa Rica so, I try to visit home every year, I came across these beautiful villas on VRBO. Read almost every review and did not see one negativereview. ( I am a strong believer in reviews; they REALLY do help travelers choose the perfect place to vacation)

These villas (I rented two) Villa Orquidea & Villa Heliconia right beside each other were EXACTLY what I wanted and was looking for. The listing description was accurate regarding the location,layout,amenities etc..We had the pool area to ourselves the whole time we were there. Beach and restaurants were just a couple minutes down no biggie. I loved that these villas are nestled right up top giving you that extra feel of privacy, close enough to beach but away from noise. I loved it. The property itself was clean and well maintained. The owners; Chris & Mièle have done a great job with it. Although I was not able to personally meet them, I did meet their son Shawn who was a sweetheart. Always just a phone call away if I needed him. He recommended a local little rancho place down the road that served authentic CR food. We visited and can say it was delicious and affordable. Waterfall was a definite bonus, I cannot say enough about this place. Excellent price, excellent service, excellent location. My family and I had a great time. Would I recommend this place to family/friends? Without a shadow of a doubt!

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!
