Guestbook comments from the owner

"Our stay in the Costa Rica Villa Ventanas was amazing! We soaked up the sun, the greenery and the magnificent views from this stunning home that overlooks Playa Hermosa. Our stay was very comfortable - truly a home-away-from-home. While the kids splashed around in the beautiful pool, we were able to sit back, relax and enjoy the scenery from the expansive patio - exactly what we needed. Every day, we explored the area, ate the local food and experienced numerous exciting adventures. Costa Rica was completely the trip of a life-time!"

Awesome Family Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I recently spent a week in this wonderful home. The description of the home is accurate and the owners were wonderful to work with. They gave us plenty of information about the home and area prior to our arrival. The property manager also met us in town and we followed him to the house where he gave us a folder of info regarding things to do and place to go. We have two children (ages 9 and 11) who loved the pool area. The town of Playa Hermosa is wonderfully small, all the locals are so friendly. Every morning I walked from the house to the beach and back, the little hill will work off any excess calories you consume while on your trip! The locals and expats that I met along my walk were very friendly. Car rental is a must. We went to several local restaurants and excursions, I will try to list and tell a little about them for those who are interested. Father Rooster's has the best Nachos and Margarita's, The Black beach there is cool, but remember your water shoes, sand is hot! Donde Johan's food was okay, could have been what we ordered, (pizza) atmosphere, staff and owner were all very nice, I would go back just for that reason. We went sailing with Ferit, wonderful day, couldn't ask for a better trip, very accommodating. (Daryl the property manager can give you his number) Had dinner on the beach at Roberto's, had great Shrimp, and drink specials. Also had dinner out last night at Ginger's our only regret is that we didn't go here earlier in the week so we could have gone there twice!! It is a tapas restaurant, so don't expect large portions but my husband and I ordered 5 different items between the two of us and ended up bringing home left overs. Went to Palo Verde National Park, Luis was our tour guide, very nice guy, tour was nice unfortunately we only saw the monkeys from afar. Bring some bananas with you if you do this tour...especially if you want to see monkeys close up. Lunch at a small local town on this tour was very authentic, worth the little extra $. After the tour they take you to watch a local make pottery..it is beautiful. I purchased a very large bowl at a expensive price, my fault for not trying to negotiate but after you sit there and watch a guy make one on a wheel and tell you how long it takes to make I had a hard time haggling now knowing what I know I would have.

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing time at your villa. The furnishings are lovely. The outdoor seating area is perfect for sundowners. The view is spectacular. Daryl is helpful and knowledgeable, having lived in the area for sometime. The owners have been over the top in working with me for my ever changing schedule. Good restaurants down the very steep hill- but walkable. Yoga close by and some beautiful 5 star resorts are just a short drive away. Thank you for a lovely wedding week.

BEST VACATION EVER!

  • 5 of 5
The home is absolutely gorgeous and the views are breathtaking. Every room was so comfortable and furnished beautifully. We cooked frequently and the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The property manager was so awesome and was always available to answer any questions we had. It was the best vacation home we have ever stayed at. You will love it here.

Something for Everyone!

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from the most wonderful week in Costa Rica. Traveling with my daughter, her husband and three boys, staying at this villa was all I had hoped for and more. The house is so well equipped! The kitchen is a dream to work in with ample counter space and stocked with everything you could imagine, opening up to a huge living area comfortable for our whole family. But our joy was in being outside on the patio, able to see and enjoy so many beautiful birds and even the howler monkies! The view was spectacular and our boys never tired of the beautiful pool. We drove to Tamarindo one day and the boys took surfing lessons at Wiches Rock Surf School. Beautiful beach followed by great lunch at the Rock! We had a great day fishing, following the property manager's advise in seeking a particular fisherman. My son in law caught a 21 lb. Jack Cervalle and everyone caught red snapper...around 40 in all, some of which we cooked that night. Another day we spent zip lining, white water rafting and playing in volcanic mud! The boys had a blast. There is so much to do in Costa Rica, it's hard to choose. The property manager was very helpful and made suggestions regarding some restaurants. Feeding three boys can be a bit daunting! The pizza at Don Johan was terrific, skip the sushi! Father Rooster in Ocotal is worth the trip. Food is great, view is beautiful in the daytime. Playa Coco has a lot of restaurants to choose from. We ate at the Zi lounge and found great burgers, terrible ceviche. Depending on the members of your party, there's something for everyone. It was a fabulous week and a joy for us, as grandparents, to see the boys excited about seeing a new species of bird or able to observe the behavior of monkies in the wild. Many of us rose with the sun each day so as not to miss anything. Pura Vida!

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
Our family had the most phenomenal stay in this extraordinary mountain-top home in Playa Hermosa a few weeks ago. We traveled with our four year old son and both sets of our parents. The house had an abundance of space for everyone; we were extremely comfortable and pampered throughout. Our son particularly loved the resident monkeys and birds as well as the shallow pool - one of two connected pools on the grounds. The house is minutes away from several beautiful beaches and many restaurants so we had plenty to do when we were not at the house enjoying the views and pools. The airport in Liberia makes travel so easy. We would do this trip again in a second. Highly recommend!

What a joy!

  • 5 of 5
The property was goregous and the listing was accurate. However, the photos couldn't really begin to capture the magnificence of the setting. The view was spectacular and the location was excellent, both in terms of accessibility to the beach and also accessibility to other places like other beaches, Rincon, Sanata Rosa, etc. Some days we'd finish with a dip in the gorgeous pool. Other days we'd finish with cocktails at sunset at the bar of the El Velero Hotel on the beach. Just a wonderful time! Rent this place if you get the chance!
