About the Owner

I have been happily married for the past 13 years. My loving wife Joan and I have one child named Charlie who is now 13 years old. I was in Commercial Video Post Production business around 28 years, I have temporarily resigned from my business so I could pursue other ventures. My future endeavors include helping better our environment, volunteer for my community and possibly get involved in health care as well as spending more time with my family. I have been on the east coast, in and around NYC my entire life. 7 years ago we went on a vacation to Costa Rica's Gulf of Papagayo, we loved it so much we purchased a condo a month later. Vista Bahia condominium/hotel (A Monarch Resort Property)of Playa Panama was a perfect place for us because of the location to and from the airport and the privacy it offers. After vacationing in this area for years we found & bought this Condo at Sol Y Mar in Playa Hermosa. It was spectacular and larger and more luxurious then the first condo we bought. We vacation here at least twice a year. I am considering moving down to Costa Rica someday, hopefully sooner than later. I love fishing, working with my hands and many other hobbies.

Out of the cold

  • 5 of 5
We rented this condo in March 2014. The condo was perfect for our group of 5. The location is amazing! You are literally steps to a beach that is never crowded. Scott was amazing to work with from our initial inquiry on. He responded to our questions quickly and did everything that he could to make our vacation enjoyable. Scott's treatment of his renters is 5 star. We arrived late at night and the property managers had been to the market for us. Our fridge was stocked with our requests and we really appreciated this service. They also put us in touch with an awesome local gentleman, Rory, that picked us up at the airport. We very much appreciated this. They also arranged our car rental for us. Our car was dropped off at our condo and picked up there as well. Again, we very much appreciated this service. Our vacation was relaxing and we really enjoyed our stay. We loved being able to walk the beach any time of the day. We walked it every day and often in the evening as well. There are a few fun little places to eat or have drinks just down the beach. If you are into more formal dinning that can be found locally as well. The condo is nicely furnished and comfortable. It was clean and well looked after. You will find everything that you need is available in the condo. The complex is very well maintained. Playa Hermosa is fairly quiet but you can be as busy or relaxed as you want to be. There is a lot to do when you drive a fairly short distance. We would recommend having a rental car. We don't usually return to places that we've been to previously but we would love to return to this one. Loved Costa Rica, loved Playa Hermosa and loved this condo.

"Best Vacation Ever!"

"Best Vacation Ever!"
  • 5 of 5
Summed up by our 6 year-old, "Best vacation ever!"

This was our first trip to Costa Rica and the owner and property manager made sure we felt right at home. The location permits you to do as much or as little as you like.

Playa Hermosa is idyllic. An uncrowded paradise just 25 minutes from the airport, the beach was calm and perfect for swimming. The pool was steps away from the patio. We could sit under the fans with a cool drink while our daughter swam and played just steps away by the pool.

The condo itself was beautifully decorated, with high-end finishes, a well-equipped kitchen, high-speed internet and plenty of beach towels. We awoke to the sound of waves. What more could you ask for?

There are several excellent dining choices a short walk down the beach. My daughter loved the food and beachy atmosphere of Aquasport. I was partial to La Casita del Marisca (get the Snapper VaraCruz style.)

We were pleased to see (and frequently hear) howler monkeys right from the condo. We adopted an iguana, though we left it behind for fear of what U.S.customs might think. We were picked up right off the beach for a snorkeling trip with Captain Alphonso. A few days later, we were picked up again, this time by his brother and nephew, for a sensational half day of fishing. We took a river cruise to see monkeys, crocodiles, jesus lizards, bats, iguana and myriad other animals. We zip-lined over canyons and waterfalls. We sat by the pool with ice-cold Imperial's. We did exactly as we liked, and we were never far from Playa Hermosa.

I would recommend this property and location highly. We will definitely go back - there is so much to do!

Loved the Playa Hermosa Condo!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved Scott's nice Playa Hermosa condo. The location was great-beachfront, poolside, close proximity to good restaurants. We snorkeled, fished, relaxed, and really had a great time. The condo was very nice, well equipped and we all can't wait to return. Thanks for sharing you slice of paradise with us.

Nice Place, Great Location, Helpful Owner

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 enjoyed our stay at this property. The condo is in a great location, very convenient to restaurants, beach, food market and lots of activities. We also loved that it was so close to the pool. We did a lot while we were there and found time to relax too. Daryl the property manager was helpful with lots of suggestions on things to do and places to eat, etc. The property owner Scott went above and beyond to help us plan a great trip. He was so nice and helpful! Playa Hermosa is a great spot and the weather was perfect every day!

Owner's Response: I am glad you all enjoyed your stay! Our location is perfect for all that you mentioned. Some guests do not even rent a car and just stay local. Our managers Daryl & Cheryl are the best, they offer a great Meet & Greet package to make everything go smooth if any guests have doubts. Thanks for the kind words, I always try and go out of my way to help in anyway I can to make my guests vacations the best possible.

Beautiful Condo in Beautiful Country

  • 5 of 5
This was our first visit to Costa Rico and the condo was fantastic. Scott made renting a pleasure and so easy. Very good communication throughout the whole process. He made plenty of suggestions to us for places to eat and things to do and they all were excellent. We were traveling with our 21 and 20 year old daughters so we had more than enough room as the condo is huge and very well appointed.
We flew into Liberia and rented a car. It is very easy to get around and the condo was about 25 min from the airport which was great. It was also very close to Coco and about an hour from Tamarindo. We felt very safe at the condo as they had a security guard on duty 24/7. There are plenty of good local restaurants that you can walk to if you decide against a car rental.
The weather could not have been better, 95 and sunny everyday. Perfect.
If you are looking to relax and enjoy a beautiful place this is it. We will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Hi Betty,
Thank you for the kind words. I am glad you had a fantastic vacation at our condo. The weather is always perfect and just being there is rejuvenating. I am glad your daughters had enough room for their privacy, it is much needed for families to enjoy themselves. Having the airport close enough to drive in minutes but far enough you do not even know it is there is a huge convenience. That was one reason we purchased in this area. Even our location is perfect for getting to other areas for tours and exploring, nothing is that far from the condo. The restaurants seem to get better and better every time we go down, I happy to hear you all loved my suggestions. Having them within walking distance is a plus too!
Having security 24/7 makes all guest feel safe, even though our area is very safe it is nice to know it is there.
If there is anything we can do for you in the future just let us know.
Have a great year and stay warm, Spring is just around the corner!
Regards,
Scott

I chose this area because this unit is directly on the beautiful, uncrowded beach of the Pacific: it is ALSO poolside with a very short walk of 100 feet directly to the beach and ocean. The condo is the only one like it, this magnificent, luxurious unit has plenty of space for large families. It was built with incredible detail. I have always been a beach person and love to fish. There is everything and nothing to do here, the choice is yours.
