Perfect home away from home in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We came here with 3 other families and everyone came away so impressed and to be honest, NOBODY wanted to leave and go home. I was depressed on my last day here. As you drive up the windy road to this beautiful country you get to a house on a hill with a view that is pure paradise! Our family was the first to arrive so we got to soak in all the beauty first. They even put up a Xmas tree! We met up with Vivian, who I believe is the property manager and she was a joy to work with. She was totally professional and helpful as she made every attempt to give us a lot of information about where to go, car rentals, etc. She was even willing to meet us up at the big supermarket to escort us to the house. First day we were there, she brought us a welcome cake and tamales (delicious!) on the second day. It was such a great gesture that made us feel welcome and special! Now back to the view! I was literally gasping inside and tried to keep my composure when I saw the view of the Infiniti pool and the ocean. Just totally breath taking. Each room had either a balcony or direct view of the pool and ocean. Pictures are spot on and it's even better in person!! Now the house itself is huge and luxurious. The decorations are tasteful and they really know what they are doing. The details in the ceilings with gold brick makes the house look like something from lifestyles of the rich and famous. Each bedroom had a key and safe and was really spacious and perfect! I've stayed in quite a few luxurious resorts/hotels and this by far is the best place I've seen.

So the house itself is spectacular but then you meet the on-site caretakers, Carmen and her husband Marlon who are a totally delight. They were friendly and never made us feel uncomfortable. I would totally recommend asking them to cook the local foods for you because every meal was amazing! I really enjoyed their company as well as brushing up on my Spanish. Having Carmen there to go shopping and cook for us was really convenient with a large group because we didn't have to go out and waste time at the supermarket or restaurant. It's like having your own personal cook and restaurant in the comfort of your home.

Recommend going to a waterfall, just ask Carmen as well as the volcano nearby. Overall we had a blast and enjoyed every second of the house, the beautiful people, and sites that the country had to offer.

A group of 3 families (12 total) comfortably stayed at Villa RocMar for a recent week in January 2015. The house was beyond expectation. After our many excursions in Costa Rica, the best part of the day was returning to this wonderful home. The entire staff, from the rental agent to the on-site staff, was top notch, always there to help in any way possible.

The view, and sunsets, from the pool deck are absolutely amazing, and worth every penny of the rental fee. On top of that, everything in the house is top notch, with a whole-house sound system easily pared with your own IPhone playlist, to the massive game room with pool and poker tables.

I can easily say Rocmar Villa was the most impressive vacation residence we've ever had the pleasure of visiting.

Even more impressive in person

  • 5 of 5

If you're worried about whether this place will live up to the on-line description...don't be. As impressive as this place looks on the internet, you'll still be amazed once you get there. You will enjoy sipping your morning coffee while admiring the most impressive views of any house in Playa Hermosa (and probably just about anywhere in Costa Rica), Later that day, you'll enjoy your afternoon lounging in the sun and enjoying the pool...all with that same view. Plus, Carmen and Marlon (who maintain the house) are an absolute joy to be around. Need help with anything?...just ask them. Be sure to ask about Playa Penca! Roberto's is a great place to enjoy a casual dinner and some great Margarita's on the beach.

Only 30 minutes from the airport in Liberia, this location also provides great access to all the Guanacaste beaches. Take the Monkey Trail on your way to Lola's (one of the best beach bars in the country according to Conde Naste and validated by us!) in Playa Avellenas. Talk to Herson about Monte Verde for the best zip-lining (don't settle for more local options).

Simply on of the best vacations by wife and I, and our three teen-age daughters have ever taken!

Luxurious Lifestyle

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with this place the minute we saw the pictures, but nothing prepared us for the absolute luxury of staying here. The views were absolutely breathtaking, the bedrooms were relaxing, and the rest of the house was comfortable and stylish. I especially enjoyed eating my breakfast overlooking the breathtaking view.

Carmen & Marlon were incredibly cheerful & helpful in making sure we knew how to get around. Carmen helped us book excursions and hire a chef. I wanted to bring them home with me.

We are looking forward to another trip to Costa Rica and again staying at Villa RocMar!

Absolute 10 star vacation at this posh and extravagant villa in the hills. Spectacular views from every room. My husband and I enjoyed the large pool, elegant décor and comfortable rooms. Very well maintained grounds and personable and accommodating staff. Will definitely visit again. We felt like movie stars! The quaint town of Hermosa has everything we needed and then some-fantastic beach, shops and fine to casual dining. Sight-seeing is close at hand and everyone made our vacation here a time to remember for ever. There is a master bedroom on the main floor which will come in handy for any elderly guests wishing to stay. We highly recommend this villa if you like style and quality.
