Property Details

Updated: Oct 9, 2014
Luxurious Spacious Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Pools, Jacuzzi, (Sleeps 8-12)

We called our house Villa Serena as it seemed to capture the peace and tranquility of everything about it: Costa Rica, Guanacaste, Playa Conchal, the golf course, the beach, the trees, and of course the house itself.

Located in the exclusive Conchal Beach resort 'La Reserva Conchal', one of the most prestigious resorts in the Americas, it can be the base for truly great vacation.

With its beach club, spa, golf, tennis, horse riding, restaurants, concierge and travel services, and of course 24 hour security, La Reserva is the ultimate escape. It is also a perfect base for those wishing to explore Guanacaste. The amenities and services in the resort are second to none and welcoming staff will help make your vacation all you want it to be.


With 4 Bedrooms and 5 Bathrooms (the master ensuite is quite fabulous with walled garden, overflow tub, inside and outside showers, and garden fountain) the house is perfect for a couple of families. It is large enough to accommodate most needs, with 2 king beds, 2 queen beds, additional sofa beds in two of the bedrooms, and a sofa bed in the media room.


There is a fully equipped kitchen with a double oven, a large island with a 5 burner range, second sink and breakfast seating, a double fridge, beverage/wine cooler, and plenty of exquisite granite tops to prepare all your culinary delights. There is a 8-12 person extendable dining table indoors and a 10 person dining table outdoors under the terrace roofing. There is also a dishwasher to help with the clean up. If you don't fancy any of that effort, our concierge services can arrange for a chef to do the cooking and cleaning staff to take care of the dishes. Or of course you can just order in!


The main terrace area features a full outdoor kitchen for all those BBQ lovers. There is large 4 burner gas grill, sideburner, fridge, and sink, and again plenty of granite space for all the preparation.


There is a large infinity edge swimming pool, a kids pool, and a Jacuzzi, all with perfect views down onto the golf course.

The extensive covered and uncovered terracing has plenty of seating and lounging options for those not quite ready to jump in the pools.


The house has a double height great room, family room, and media room, for those keen on home entertainment. It has wired and wireless internet access throughout, TV's in all bedrooms, a stereo system running through the whole house, and a computer for those who forgot their laptops. It has a fully equipped laundry room. The house has air conditioning, but there are ceiling fans throughout for those who wish a break from the AC units.


Situated on the north west Pacific coast of Costa Rica, the area around Conchal epitomizes the heart of the Guanacaste region. With a drier climate than most of the country, the region retains much of its ranching culture. The coastal waters include some of the best surfing breaks in the country as well as world class fishing. Day trips to the national parks, cloud forests and volcanoes can round off a spectacular vacation with natures splendor, and some pretty outrageous zip-lining.

Guestbook comments from the manager

From a tripadvisor review:

The home itself is nothing short of spectacular...they truly thought of everything...The wood was beautiful and the furniture and finishing were top of the line...The pools were perfect for the 6 children ages 4-15 and it was tough to get them out to take in the other sites...Each morning we were greeted by local iguanas, anteaters, and birds...

Best: The house itself was so well laid

out and had everything imaginable to make the vacation perfect. Liled least: nothing

We were visiting Costa Rica for my sister's wedding, and rented the Villa Serena for the week. The wedding was held at the Reserva Conchal beach club, which you will have access to as a guest at Villa Serena. The beach club includes a very nice and large pool, a restaurant, gym, and private access to the beach. The staff there are very attentive, and helpful. Furthermore, the restaurant is reasonably priced and the food is excellent.

Villa Serena itself is phenomenal. The pictures here do not do it justice as the house has a great layout and includes everything that you could possibly want in a vacation home. It is also very well kept as a housekeeper comes every day to make sure things are spic and span. The house has a large grill outside, and plenty of kitchen wares if you plan on doing your own cooking. The house also has TVs throughout, and a large collection of DVDs and Wii games to entertain you or your kids. Wireless internet is also accessible throughout the house if you bring your own device, but a computer is also available for your use if you didnt!

The house is very quiet, as it sits overlooking the golf course in the back, and as one of the last Villas on a private street. The golf course is beautifully maintained and manicured, however there are very few golfers so there is nothing to worry about with disturbances coming from the golf course.

Since we were there for the wedding, we had the unique opportunity to visit with many other guests who were staying throughout the resort. We visited the smaller condos, larger condos, and even another Villa nearby and I can say without hesitation that Villa Serena was by far the best. It was a pleasure staying there and we hope to do it again in the future!

This past week was the best I have ever spent in Costa Rica and I have lived here for almost 12 years. My oldest son and his family came down from the states along with two other families. Each family brought two kids with them, ages 8 and 12 so there were 13 of us in the house. The house was unexpectedly gorgeous, far exceeding everyone's expectations. The decor was very attractive and all the finish work was over the top, very impressive craftsmanship. The layout was imaginative and practical and the pool, jacuzzi, barbeque area was awesome. All the rooms were attractive, roomy and comfortable with top notch air conditioning systems. The kids pretty much lived in the pool and jacuzzi while we were there and also enjoyed swinging on the tree rope in back.There were many games to play also, including board games and wii. The sound system was great and nice flat screens were provided throughout the house. The resort has a wonderful beach club with a great white sand beach, restaurants, and bars. Shuttles are provided for people without vehicles.
When we could tear the kids away from the pool, we spent our days at the local beaches which were all within a short driving distance. Tamarindo, Flamingo, Playa Grande, and Brasilito were some of the beaches we spent time at. The kids had a great time body surfing and boogey boarding. They also took surf lessons one day at Tamarindo. We took part in several activities close by, including fishing, golfing (by the way, the conchal course is beautiful, great layout), snorkeling off a great catamaran out of Flamingo, and just generally enjoying the beach bars and restaurants. There was also a trip about an hour and a half's drive away that included horseback riding, zip line tour, mud baths and great nature sightings...monkeys, birds, anteaters, etc.
All in all, it was a fabulous trip and the people that were here will never forget it. I highly recommend Villa Serena to anyone that is looking for a richly rewarding vacation.

I am at a loss as to how to even describe our week at this incredible property. Just know that the pictures do not do this house justice. It was spectacular! Our family just had the most wonderful time enjoying the pools, the multiple tv's (March Madness basketball games were on--so it was perfect), and the beautiful yard. We highly highly recommend this house.

We hired Juan the personal chef for two of the nights to cook dinner for us and it was fabulous! Sitting at the back patio eating his delicious food was heavenly. We had never done that before and now we know how great it is...and reasonably priced. Having the maid service everyday also was a really nice thing as well--she even did all the kid's laundry everyday!

We did a tour to Arenal volcano, and although the 4 hour drive was not fun, it was so worth it. Next trip we will definitely spend a couple days staying in La Fortuna at the base of the volcano. We also did a zipling tour and a white water rafting tour. We have 5 children and they all had such a great time, whether we were just staying at the house or doing a fun tour.

Thank you Herd for being so accommodating and helpful. It was truly a memorable week. I hope to spend more time at your home soon!

We stayed in Villa Serena for 10 days in May and had an absolutely wonderful vacation. I’ve booked a few houses over the years for my family and friends, and there is always a level of apprehension that we might be disappointed. Just entering the Conchal resort we realized that this vacation was going to be great. The staff were very friendly, knew our names, knew the house we were going to, and we could see the magnificent ground and golf course ahead. But I was not quite prepared for our walk into Villa Serena. It was literally breath taking. I almost cried. The photos on the website don’t do it justice

Villa Serena is the perfect getaway home in paradise!!!

  • 5 of 5
We recently returned from a perfect vacation in Costa Rica and cannot say enough about this incredible home. Our party included three adults (me, my wife and our nanny), and two young children (our 3-year old twins), and Villa Serena was the highlight of the trip. We could have easily entertained more guests, but the home was spacious, opulent and very peaceful with our smaller party.

Villa Serena is almost impossible to describe in words, and its pictures don’t do it justice. My wife and I marveled at the home’s impeccable detailing that included exotic woods and travertine floors throughout. The home’s open-air design seems straight out of Architectural Digest and features collapsible walls that transform the main floor into indoor/outdoor living space. This design enabled us to open up the entire home and enjoy the fresh breeze and clean air. We’ve rented more than a dozen high-end homes over the years, and Villa Serena is BY FAR our favorite rental ever.

The outdoor pools and Jacuzzi were also amazing. We arrived after 9:00 p.m., and our toddlers were in the pools within minutes. They loved switching from the kiddie pool to the Jacuzzi, and then to the infinity pool, and then back to the Jacuzzi, etc. It was nearly impossible to get them out of the pools.

Villa Serena is also a gadget lover’s dream with several large-screen TV’s, Wifi access throughout the home (even outdoors), Apple TV, a dedicated media room, and a plug-and-play, whole-home audio system. Definitely bring your iPod!

The home’s location was also a huge plus. Reserva Conchal is a high-end, gated resort community, and we felt safe at all times. The golf course was fun and challenging, and it barely had any traffic in the afternoons. The home also comes with access to the Reserva Conchal Beach Club that is very close and accessible by either driving or free resort shuttle. The club has a nice workout facility, and the beach was very beautiful. However, we enjoyed the house so much that we only spent one day at the beach. We simply didn’t want to leave.

Villa Serena’s owners are very professional and responded to emails/calls immediately. I ended up having to take an 8-hour conference call on vacation, and they actually sent someone out to buy a new speakerphone to make the call easier on me. Amazing service and dedication!

We look forward to our next stay.

Fantastic Villa Serena

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely relaxing week in October - this gorgeous villa was spacious, beautifully furnished and well equipped. We loved the garden sitting room, the stunning infinity pool, the hot tub, not to mention the outdoor shower in the walled garden.
With our 3 children 14,13,10 we explored the picture postcard Playa Conchal beach, had surf lessons at Tamarindo, enjoyed stunning sundowners and relaxed dining at the many restaurants in nearby Brasilito. The nearby monkey reserve was a great trip , although we were frequently visited by howler monkeys and iguanas in the vicinity of the villa which was magical.
A great holiday, would highly recommend Villa Serena.
