Property Details

Updated: Apr 1, 2015
Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Villa Aurelia is a brand new beautiful house overlooking the Pacific Ocean in the quaint and quiet village of Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste, Costa Rica. This Playa Hermosa is one of Costa Rica's "Blue Flag" beaches for ecological excellence. This is Not a surfers beach- gentle waves lap the shoreline. You can surf at Witches Rock nearby for big wave action. The pool is 10 meters long, 2 meters deep. The furnishings are custom made for the house. This is a safe and quiet part of the "Gold Coast" of Northwest Costa Rica.

The villa has three private "suites"-each having its own private bath. One is a King suite, with a jacuzzi/hot tub as well as a shower. The second suite has two convertible twin beds-expanding to four twin beds. The third suite is a queen bed with its private bathroom.

GREAT place for a MEMORABLE vacation

  • 5 of 5
This is my first review in this site. I have to state a few facts before hand. I am a world traveler due to my job and spend over 150 days a year on hotels in every continent. Likewise, our family usually takes trips twice a year to different countries around the world, always staying in houses or resorts. However, this was our first time renting a house in Costa Rica, where home is for us.

I have to say that my expectations were quite low, as I had not vacationed in this area, plus I had left this trip to the very last minute, with Semana Santa (Easter week) on top, making it difficult to find any place available. However, we struck gold! We contacted David (owner) and Jodi (manager), and were able to make a memorable vacation, with the help of Gary (the local house keeper), who is a GREAT person to have a chat with and pointing on what to do locally.

Location - The house is located on a mid-hilltop, with views to the ocean (less than a mile away), with lush vegetation around it (great for the monkeys that come and visit). The directions are very easy to get there, and it is centrally located to everything.

Rooms - The rooms are great!!! Each with individual fans and A/C and the house with a master A/C, with multiple fans. They are large rooms, with very comfortable beds, great linens, each room with its private big bathroom and big closets! What else to ask for?

Amenities - The house includes a series of perks like a FAST internet connection, Magic Jack, Roku, DVD player, 2 TV (one in the main bedroom and one in the living room) with Satellite TV, outside speakers, and large couches to watch TV...

Outside - Obviously, the pool is a great attraction and it was a great one, with spectacular sunset views and just great for lounging. But the outside table, umbrella and chairs, made it the perfect location for food, drinks and unwinding.. or falling asleep in the sun tanning chairs (under a great shadow from a beautiful native tree)!

Cooking - I love cooking and this is by far one of the best houses we have been to in terms of all utensils. We had great pots and pans (every size, for every style), great granite countertops, glass cooktop, great knives/cookware, and overall a great selection of plates to serve your food in, that really made it kind of special in terms of a "vacation" feel. A great dining table, topped it for family gathering.

Overall - This house far exceeded our expectations, and we will definitely come back.

Nice house, well decorated, and beautiful view of the ocean from the swimming pool deck. When we arrived for the first time it was a little difficult to find the house due to not clear directions. We really enjoyed. Thanks a lot.

Vacation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
This home is convenient, well appointed, immaculate and a relaxing paradise, just what our family needed (two adults and two teenagers). The tasteful furnishings and delightful local art work added to the beauty of the home. The views from the patio/pool area are wonderful and as others mentioned the beach and restaurants are a short walking distance down the hill. We spent a lot of time on the pool patio and ate several meals on the pool side deck!
Will have to say…the most outstanding part of our stay was with Gary the concierge and care taker. Our family now has a new friend that made our trip and comfort traveling to Playa Hermosa amazing. From arranging a private chef, restaurant assistance and recommendations, zip lining and much more…Gary was there to help with a pleasing smile and helping hand when you needed him.
Restaurants - We really enjoyed Roberto's Bar & Restaurant and Ginger Tappa’s!
If you are looking for an ideal, non-crowded, relaxing, laid-back location, then this home and village is right for you! You will love this place and enjoy meeting Gary and benefiting from all his knowledge and help. We will be back for sure!

Great place, better customer service

  • 5 of 5
Villa Aurelia itself is a beautiful property with great views, a pool that is big enough to accommodate a number of people, and clean well-appointed rooms. Additionally, the caretaker Gary is incredibly helpful and responsive. There was a small plumbing issue and he got it taken care of immediately. Additionally, he invited my family and I over for a bbq party and made us feel welcome. Great house. Great location. Great customer service. We've already stayed here twice and would go back again (and again)!

Fantastic Vacation Villa

  • 5 of 5
Villa Aurelia was one of the nicest vacation proprtites we have ever rented. Not only was in furnished with incredible hand made furniture the property and house were exremely well maintained. Having the pool at your door step made lounging around a delight, not to mention the fantastic view of the Pacific. You are just a short walk to a lovely beach with a number af resturants right there.

Everyone we meet in the are were friendly and helpful even with our limited Spanish vocabulary.

Can't wait to go back again.

Activity and Interests

Great local beach. Tours to the interior are available with a great tour guide-take the river safari to see local wildlife:crocodiles, monkeys, birds and more. Visit the volcanoes, ride horseback up the mountain and take the zipline down on the "canopy tour"; or raft down the whitewater rivers. You can fish in the Pacific for tuna, wahoo or the magnificent rooster fish. Snorkeling and diving with several local dive shops is a popular activity here.
