  • Beyond Expectations

    "There hasn't been a review since 2015 so I though I better write one. Looking at the pictures for Olas Hermosa when searching for a vacation place in CR I was a little sceptical if the view and place would be as nice as described. After settling I can assure you the pictures don't do this justice. The reviews from previous guests are correct - it really is hard to leave the deck (I am writing this while looking out over the palm trees sipping on an Imperial.) The studio is wonderful - everything you need to have a low-cost vacation (eating at "home" is no problem) and we were more than comfortable with three of us, even with the 36C+ heat. The beach in front of us is Dominicalito and is best enjoyed for surfing and boogie boarding at high tide (low tide exposes quite a lot of rocks but makes for nice beach combing or running). We printed out the tide table and organized our day around the tides. Other guests indicated that they could walk the beach from Dominicalito to Dominical but, looking at the rocks to the north I am not so sure how nice that walk would be. It's an easy drive but we were happiest enjoying the calmer waters at Dominicalito. We have been told that this has been one of the driest seasons ever, likely due to El Nino and there is a bit of a water issue right now. Today, if you are looking for a waterfall, Poza Azul is pretty much dry (there is a pool of water but only a trickle coming down the rocks). Instead, drive up toward San Isidro and pay the US$8 p/p to walk into Nauyaca falls - which are exactly as advertised - gorgeous and refreshing. We spotted many Toucans along the walk. Hopefully the rainy season will help replenish the water that is feeding the rivers and water table in this area. As others have reported Dave is wonderful (Deb is away in CO) and has provided us with everything to make our stay wonderful (if something isn't quite right just ask and he will take care of it) I just spent an hour this morning with Dave out on the rock outcrop on Domincalito beach swapping stories and enjoying the views that run all the way up to Manuel Antonio. We have met him almost everyday around 5 pm (beer o'clock) to share stories while cooling off in the pool. For those on their way to Olas Hermosa - you will have a great time (don't pack much more than your swim suits). If I come back to the southern cost in CR I will most definitely book into Olas Hermosa."

  • Costa Rican Dream! You would be CRAZY to pass this one up.

    "Gorgeous beach house decor, feel and location is just as described. Nestled in the jungle, yet on the beach with magnificent views and AMAZING staff. You get as much attention as you request. If you are first timers, your questions will be answered; best places to eat, exciting adventures or where to relax and unwind, how to get there, how to go the budget route, where to listen to music, see all the animals, swim in the waterfalls etc. Victor will cut down a coconut for you in the morning and Lisa or Greg will make you a reservation while you are playing in the surf. My favorites - Iguanas and geckos run all around the property, grilling our fresh tuna in the gazebo, while my husband swam in the pool. The tiny baby bat that took a nap on our window sill, the monkeys, swimming in the waterfall, the proximity of fresh fruits and fish, delicious food. What an experience!!!!!"

  • Great property--would return

    "The view is even better than the pictures and the house is extremely comfortable. Even the jungle views in the back are spectacular. There is no dishwasher, so when I return I will probably opt for the daily housekeeping service to make it more relaxing. The grill is brilliant and got a lot of use. There was a minor issue with the pool which was quickly addressed by the staff, all of whom by the way were super responsive, friendly and thorough. Lynne, the owner had a fantastic response time and was a pleasure to interact with every step of the way."

  • A wonderful vacation

    "I stayed with my two children, their spouses, and two grandchildren for 8 days in this beautiful slice of heaven. The house was beautiful, right on the ocean, and fully equipped. The check-in and check-out procedures were efficient and friendly. While the bedrooms were air conditioned, the main house was not. That did not provide any problems, but visitors who need cool spaces should take note. We used the pool a lot as an alternative to the fairly rough surf which was great for the surfers, but not so good for the children. We enjoyed walking on the beach to Dominical which was about 20 minutes away but not accessible during high tide. Taxis were inexpensive and available; however, we ended up renting a car there for better travel options. I look forward to returning."
