Property Details

Updated: May 19, 2015
3 bedroom, 2 bathroom with Ocean and Mountain Views

Spectacular ocean view three bedroom, two bath private Playa Hermosa villa for rent. This wonderful vacation rental has a fully appointed granite eat-in kitchen, oversize jacuzzi tub, and a private infinity edge pool. The inside of the villa is beautiful with the exposed teak beam open ceilings, but by far the best feature of the villa is the deck overlooking the private infinity edge pool that gives way to a Million Dollar ocean view! The villa is comfortably appointed with furniture from local artisans. Enjoy a soak in the 2 person jacuzzi, or take a dip in your private pool.

This gated resort style community is centered in the heart of Playa Hermosa and sits high on a hill to afford beautiful views of Peninsula Papagayo and the ocean beyond. The beautiful beach is minutes from the front door by walking, and there are numerous restaurants nearby. Within the development is a restaurant/bar, first-aid, grocery store, spa, mini golf, movie theater, BBQ area, nature trails with waterfall, and a pool with two slides.

Playa Coco is minutes away and provides additional dining and night life. Arenal and other volcanoes are a three hour drive (or 15 min flight) and there are numerous surf and kite-board beaches nearby.

Rest, relax and get away, or venture out for all of the activities Costa Rica has to offer. Your choice! Come enjoy our piece of gold coast paradise....

Guestbook comments from the owner

he home was beautiful. The inside was exactly as the pictures showed and the pool and view was even more beautiful than the pictures. I'm glad we chose to rent a car. It allowed us to visit the many beaches near by and check out the shopping and night life in Playa Coco. Which was so much fun.

Also all the tour trips we wanted to do where only anywhere from half an hour to an hour away. So we got to spend more time playing than driving.

Our whole trip was so amazing there is no way I could say what I liked best about it. But being able to come home to our view and pool was at the top of the list.

Great location and amenities.

We were delighted with the home. The view of the ocean was excellent. Because the house was the last one on the road, we were near lots of trees and saw many beautiful exotic birds.

We shared our trip with long-time friends and had plenty of room for everyone.

Although we did not expect to use the pool much we ended up using it every evening. We felt totally safe, secure, and at home. We could not have asked for a better vacation and would recommend Playa Hermosa to others.

The house was clean and well appointed. We located everything we needed.

What a great vacation!

Pura Vida!!!

I submitted a longer review but for some reason HomeAway did not get it or post it, so this is just a summary. Great home - clean, modern, spacious, great views, good location, close to awesome beaches and good restaurants. Laurie (the owner) was very nice and helpful and the management company was professional. Without a doubt we will go back again to this same home but in the wet season to see what the dry forest in the rainy season looks like.

My husband and I ( in our 60's), our daughter and 2 grandsons (6 & 4) stayed here for a week. The owner was amazingly helpful pre-trip with lots of suggestions for eating, sight-seeing and shopping and even arranged our rental car. Milagro Mgmt. was most helpful on-site and had a basket of goodies waiting when we arrived...after a long trip, much appreciated! We were blessed with comfy beds, air-conditioning, a washer/dryer, lots of fluffy towels, a well-equipped kitchen and stylish, casual furnishings. The boys love the water and there was no shortage...the condo infinity pool, the complex pool with waterslide and pool-side snack bar where they could sit on benches in the pool to sip their drinks not to mention the beaches. The boys loved Ginger (casual, tapas); I loved La Finisterra (awesome panoramic views and elegant dining), Father Rooster, on the beach in nearby Ocotal was fun and offered good burgers and nachos if you missed American food. North Pacific Tours took my husband and grandson out for a day of marlins, but the little guy was thrilled with his catches: skipjack tuna, jack cravalle and a huge needlefish. We did our first zip-line at the Congo Trail...finally got to see the howler monkeys (lots of big noises from small monkeys). The Tempisque River Cruise was a great day...from the capuchin monkeys who climbed aboard the boat looking for bananas, to fruit bats, to the huge croc, King Solomon, who had a good part of his snout missing. On to a buffet of traditional Costa Rican foods, probably our best meal of the trip. But, Guaitil Pottery was a bust...literally almost every piece broke by the time we got home, or leaked the first time using it. Africa Mia was open jeep ride to view about a hundred species of mostly African herbivores with zebras and giraffes who would eat out of your hand...or off your head, if you could balance a carrot there. Photo ops abound...the surf at Tamarindo, the volcano at Ricon de la Vieja, lots of beautiful sunsets. We visited at the end of the dry season so the days were sunny and hot (high 80's-mid 90's). There's no rain, so the landscape was mostly shades of brown, not a green rainforest...that comes in the wet season. The sun sets at @ 6:30 pm year round. After a busy day you are ready to wind down early and the kids go to bed much easier when it is dark. It was a wonderful vacation that we quickly made into a memory book with the hundreds of pictures we took...thank you!

The condo was in excellent condition and as advertised. Milagro rentals was very helpful in making sure everything went well. You do need a car to get around - long walk to the beach

Comfortable, clean, and spacious accommodations with a spectacular view from the relaxing front patio and pool made for a perfect vacation. The property is located in a remote enough location to feel like you've "gotten away from it all" while still only being a short drive from stores and restaurants.

I researched many hotels/rental homes before I traveled and I definitely found a gem in #HH37! Look no further, this property has everything you are looking for and more!
Our entire vacation was effortless due to the caring and professionalism of the property management company and the owner. Both went out of their way to ensure our needs were met. They arranged a airport hire car, rental vehicle, private chef, tour guide and much more. This alone was priceless! This terrific vacation rental is immaculate and beautifully decorated. It is great for families or even two couples. It has a fully furnished inviting kitchen with a granite breakfast buffet, an oversized Jacuzzi tub, an amazing private infinity edge pool and you can enjoy spectacular sunsets and panoramic ocean views from the deck.
They say location is everything! The property is centrally located and has easy access to the main roads/highways. It is a great base for exploring all that Costa Rica has to offer i.e. beaches, volcano's, boating, surfing, zip lining, shopping, dining, etc. however, a car is recommended since the public transportation is not reliable.
There are several good restaurants nearby but having a private kitchen was priceless! An outstanding recommendation was Rocio, our personal chef. She prepared a fantastic birthday feast for my mother and sister. Absolutely wonderful and her plantain lasagna rocks! She also delivers meals on the go which are convenient for road trips and picnics! The grand finale to a spectacular vacation was an on-site massage and facial provided by Spa Therapeutic. This group of lovely ladies are so fantastic and positive, we want to take them home!
Laurie, I can't thank you enough for sharing your home! Two weeks was not long enough but we plan to come back soon, hopefully it will be available! Your house holds a special place in my heart! The minute we arrived, we were home! Kudos to you for your impeccable taste and attention to detail! Pura Vida, until next time! Di Anne and family, AZ/WA/NV
