  • Perfect Family Retreat in Playa Hermosa

    "We had a wonderful time staying at Chris' unit in Villas Sol! At first, my husband was a little disappointed that the unit didn't have the view offered by many others advertised on VRBO in Playa Hermosa. However, we quickly realized that our unit's proximity to the beach was far more important and convenient than if we had rented a villa with a view as those units were all located up a very steep hillside! The unit itself was very clean and spacious and had all of the amenities we needed. The patio was perfect for playing board games, dining al fresco or simply reading and/or napping on a chaise and the small pool was ideal for our use with two small children ages 5 and 2. They LOVED it!! Plus, if we wanted to go socialize and play around in a bigger pool, there was that option also with the other two resort pools! Being in the complex itself made us feel safer and it was nice knowing that if we needed ANYTHING (especially having small children with us) there was always 24 hour staff that could assist us. Another great thing about being a part of the resort was that they offered great tours, as well as car rentals. I highly recommend getting shuttled into Villas Sol (preferably by Liberia Shuttle-Javier is great!) and renting a car from the resort. As it turned out, it was actually CHEAPER to rent from them than it was to rent near the airport AND it was much more convenient. Playa Hermosa itself was so peaceful with very few people on it at any given time. It is definitely not the 'mill' that Playas del Coco or Tamarindo are where you have people begging for money or trying to sell you things at your every turn. I think we were approached maybe twice to buy something the entire week we were in Playa Hermosa. As for restaurants, we favored Roberto's! We found it to have the best location, delicious food and a wonderful waitstaff!! AquaSport was also another fun spot a little further down. And if you rent a car, you MUST find Father Roosters! It's kind of tucked away in Playa Ocotal, but once you find it, you'll love it! Good food (although a bit on the pricey side), great entertainment and waitstaff and spectacular sunsets! Just a really unique place! All in all, we had a fabulous time while staying at Chris' unit and HIGHLY RECOMMEND it!! She, too, was a gem to work with and made everything very simple and stress-free. We can't wait to return to our newly found paradise as soon as possible!"

  • Location, Location, Location!!!

    "A group of 10 of us, ranging in age from 10 years old to 74 years old stayed here for an amazing week. This house may have the best location in Playa Hermosa, as it is right on the beach, and less than a 2 minute walk to multiple restaurants. Literally, you walk out of the gate, step 30 feet down the path through the grass, and you are right on the beach. It doesn't get any better than that. The house itself is huge, with plenty of space for multiple families. Upstairs is the master suite and one gigantic bathroom, along with a small bunkroom as well. There is a sitting area, and a covered patio upstairs, and then there are three bedrooms with attached bathrooms downstairs. The multiple living areas are large, and well laid out, and the pool was great. Coconut and mango trees throughout the property, as well as a family of howler monkeys that like to hang out in the trees. The kitchen has two refrigerators, and there are more towels and linens than anyone could use in a week. This is a walled compound, and is very safe, and the caretaker lives right on the grounds with his family, Andre and his family were great, very unobtrusive, but helped us with anything we needed. Individual AC units downstairs and a very strong AC unit upstairs. The compound is located right next door to Roberto's. The beach is very nice, and the water by and large is very calm. Just down the beach was some amazing snorkeling, and you can take snorkeling trips right off of the beach, where we saw an amazing array of fish. In fact, the snorkeling was much better than we anticipated that it would be. Playa Hermosa is not a huge party area, which was fine for us. Playa Del Coco was about 10 minutes away by car, with a number of large grocery stores, nightclubs and restaurants. We found, however, that pretty much anything we wanted to eat we could walk to from Villa Daquiri. We were down during a school break, and even so, it was not very crowded at all. An added bonus was the fact that it was about 25 minutes from the airport to the beach. As far as activities were concerned, we did multiple snorkeling trips and a fishing trip, leaving right from the beach in front of the house, as well as a zip lining excursion that was less than 30 minutes away. This villa is comfortable, convenient, close to restaurants and right on the beach. A great place from which to explore everything that Costa Rica has to offer. Overall, it is very highly recommended by our group."

  • Amazing, peaceful, elegant, relaxing and beautiful!

    "I can't say enough about how wonderful this vacation home was for our family! We are a large family and wanted something special for spring break this year. ( Special doesn't even come close!) The home (villa) was constructed with amazing attention to detail , incredible architecture, beautiful design and is very comfortable! The beds were very comfortable as well and it is has everything you need and more! The infinity pool is truly spectacular and the and breathtaking views are even better than the photos, and we spent most of our time outside ! (there are 3 levels with amazing furniture!) Our kids appreciated the amazing stereo system to play their music all throughout the house, and LOVED playing pool! The kitchen is top notch, fully appointed with everything imaginable. We loved visiting 3 different beaches....all within 5-15 minutes by car, rented jet skis 5 minutes from the house, shopped in Playa del Coco (10 min away) and found everything very accessible. We rented a car from Avis (the closest rental agency to Liberia airport) and then it was a quick 20 min to the villa. Last but not least....the man who takes care of the home and the grounds, Vidal, is just a delight, and really helpful for anything you need. It truly is as beautiful as the photos show, and I would highly recommend it, and will certainly return again!"

  • Paradise on the Beach

    "The Blue Villa was unreal. The location is right on the south end of Playa Hermosa Beach and is absolutely beach front, best sunset views we've ever had. The house fit our 8 guest perfectly (4 adults and 4 kids 7-13 yrs old). I could not have designed a better layout if I tried. We spent most of the time on the back deck and in the water. One unexpected surprise was Freddie the property caretaker. He lives right onsite and was invaluable in helping us with everything from showing us how all the appliances work to helping us fix our paddle board pump. The whole stay was perfect and we will be back again."
