  • Wonderful Playa Hermosa Beach House

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This beach villa exceeded any expectations that I had for my family when I booked it. We looked at several rentals in the Playa Hermosa area and chose this one because of it's size (4 bedrooms) and setting right on the beach. For me, it was one of those 'bucket list' trips since one of my daughters and two college age grandkids came along. The home was comfortable and bedrooms were air conditioned. My grandkids, both college athletes, wanted to watch the Olympics and Jennifer the manager arranged to install a big flat screen t-v on the outdoor living/deck area. The housekeepers, Freddy and Dalia, kept the home immaculate with daily service, which made my wife and daughter happy! The beach was only steps away and a daily highlight was watching sunsets. We did scuba diving (recommend Rich Coast Diving in Playa Coco) and zip lining (recommend Diamante) and went to different beaches almost every day. The only thing I'd say, and Playa Hermosa has this issue, is there is very little water pressure for showers, etc. Only one person could shower at a time. That said, we loved this place. Freddy and Dalia even cooked a couple meals for us and it was wonderful. They set the tables and served us out on the back lawn under the stars. We even had monkeys visit a couple days in the trees next door! Thank you for making our family trip so enjoyable."

  • Beautiful villa with an amazing view of the pacific...

    "My family and I had the pleasure of staying at Casa Camilla in February 2016. We had the idea to do a vacation rental as a family for a couple of years but were nervous about all of the moving pieces of getting all 11 of us together (4 couples and 3 small children). We had never done a vacation rental before and so this piece was a big unknown. We had high expectations and these were exceeded by both the quality of the accommodation as well as the exceptionally accommodating and welcoming owner and staff. We rented the main house as well as the studio apartment and this was plenty of room for our group. The house is just as lovely in person as the pictures appear (maybe even nicer) and was sparkling clean on arrival and throughout the stay. The ocean view from the house is spectacular and we were about a ~10min walk from the beach. We walked to Playa Hermosa most mornings with our children (2 and 4), who were thrilled to see the howler monkey family in the trees on the way every day. We also repeated the journey many evenings to enjoy dinner and a cocktail at one of several beach front walk-up restaurants. This was a fantastic spot to enjoy the sunset. We are a family that doesn't mind walking so this was a pleasure for us to have a bit of walk to the beach. Of note, the hill to the house is a bit steep and my sister, who has a 7 month old, preferred the short drive (there is lots of parking at the beach as well, so this was not a problem). It is also about the same walk to a small grocery store, so it was easy to keep the kitchen stocked. One thing I would like to note as well about the location (especially for those travelling with small children) is that was very nice to be a bit away from the beach and on the base of the hill hill as it does get very hot during the day and most times we had a pleasant breeze on the upper deck. Sam, the owner, is outstanding and makes you feel welcome in his home. True to the other reviews he welcomed us on arrival, ensured every detail was taken care of during the stay and provided excellent recommendations on local attractions. The couple that maintain the house and grounds could not be nicer. The house was cleaned several times during the day, our laundry was done each day and they were so kind to accommodate their upkeep of the house around the napping schedule of our baby and toddlers. Thank you sincerely Sam, for such a wonderful vacation experience. We hope to visit again soon!"

  • Great villa, excellent location!

    "Myself, husband and 4 year old daughter stayed July 26-August 3. We had a great time, this was our 5th trip back to Costa Rica. Although we haven't been back in 5 years we were worried about the development of Playa Hermosa. We were pleasantly surprised that little had changed, a few new buildings but nothing crazy. The beach is still as beautiful as the first time we visited. The Villa was great and had everything that we needed. We did have a problem with the AC, but was fixed very promptly. The pool did get cloudy our last 3 days, but we played in the ocean so it wasn't too much of a problem. Chris and Amy were really easy to reach and help solve problems. Very short walk down to the beach that we did everyday, my daughter liked to ride the tram so we rode that back to the villa office on the way back. If you do plan a stay buy groceries in Cocos, the snack shop for the hotel/villa is very pricey. My husband spoke with Amy from Avispas, turns out she does dog rescue and my husband is a veterinarian. We had a great time and would highly recommend this villa."

  • 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."
