Simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Read the reviews! Each one is spot on and accurately describes Suenos.

Communication: Julie is prompt, super friendly, full of suggestions for a great stay! Provided precise directions to the house, making navigation a breeze.

House: Home away from home. Honestly. Extremely comfortable and clean. We often stayed in to cook meals even with excellent dining options down the road. Spent a good portion of the day in the pool, then patio and repeat. The kitchen has everything one could need from utensils to condiments.

Location: Can’t beat. Perfect combo of privacy/seclusion for relaxing, yet a short, lovely walk to the beach. Groceries and dining options just minutes away on foot.

Fernando: Amazing! Wonderful house manager. Again, made us feel right at home. Great communication, superb resource. Excellent surf instructor.

Bottom line: we love Suenos.

Vacation in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, Jay + I spent almost 2 weeks at this fabulous villa just steps away from Playa Hermosa. The villa was perfect for the 2 of us, but would be wonderful for a family as well. All the rooms are well appointed, spacious, and lots of closet space to unpack. The kitchen is very user friendly, and comes with everything you might need and more! We spent most of our time outside - many spots for lounging in, and out of the sun. The property is kept pristine by the cleaning, pool and maintenance staff. There is a great pizza place just around the corner, as well as the convenience/grocery store. The owner Julie, was a delight and helped us any time we needed anything during our stay. Julie helped arrange our surf lessons, and was extremely kind in answering any questions we had about the area. I can't recommend this villa enough, my only complaint is we didn't get to stay longer!! We will absolutely return. Thank you so much again!

Really lovely place. Very comfortable. Great beds. Julie is a great host and the house manager Fernando was super helpful. Rented surf boards from him and he arranged for a babysitter for a night out. Perfect stay!

unbelievably amazing experience

  • 5 of 5

This house and location are beautiful and perfect. The house itself was beyond our expectations with small touches and finishing that gave it an artisan yet natural appeal. It is secluded, however, only a short walk from the beach and everything else in Playa Hermosa. The small town itself is a hidden gem with 3 delicious restaurants and untouched natural beaches as far as the eye can see, lined with palm trees and wildlife everywhere. We saw howler monkeys, spider monkeys, pizotes, and various birds, just from the back yard view of the woods! Also, Fernando was very easy to contact and even rented us surf boards. It was a relaxing, wonderful vacation. We even rented a car near Liberia and drove down to Playa Hermosa. The drive had some rocky parts, but even as first timers in Costa Rica, we made the drive with no issues at all, and if anything, the views on the way there and back were breathtaking and unforgettable. I have returned to the states with a different perspective of life and feel that my experience in Costa Rica has taught me something. Definitely one of the best trips of my life and I look forward to returning!

The Perfect Location!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at Casa Suenos! Thank You! We loved the location, the home was in a private and quiet setting yet we could walk right out the door and find ourselves at the beach or at one of 3 great restaurants just steps away. The market was just a short walk up the road. for a bit more shopping, restaurants and night life; Santa Teresa was just 10 minutes away. We loved the modern & clean house, the porches were the best for naps and dining, and the pool is where we spent much of our time!

Cortas vacaciones

  • 5 of 5

El fin de semana pasado, teniendo a una estudiante alemana con nosotros, acudimos a una de las playas que consideramos mas bella de Costa Rica, Santa Teresa.

Nos alojamos en Sueños y fue aún mejor de lo esperado. La casa esta recién remodelada y cuenta con todo lo necesario para pasar una rato muy agradable. Eramos 5, y nos acomodamos perfectamente. Fernando nos recibió cordialmente he hizo que nos sintiéramos como en casa.

Definitivamente quedamos complacidos de volver. A Julie mil gracias por compartirla.
