Lovely home. Beautiful views! Very clean and comfortable.
We enjoyed our stay at this home and had no issues. The home was clean and the caretakers were welcoming and had everything ready for our arrival. The home is updated, well maintained and everything was in working order. The views for sunset could not have been better. We enjoyed watching the sun set every night from the infinity edge pool. The water level of the pool was too low for the water to flow over the edge- but being aware of the hot, dry season I was more concerned with water conservation than the water flowing below. We felt very safe as the house is in a gated community and has a gated drive. It is up a steep hill that can be difficult to walk up. I would definitely recommend renting this home if you are staying in this region of Costa Rica!
Beautiful home. Lovely views and local coastal village atmosphere.
I guess the most important review you can make is would you go back? The answer is yes.
The view is fantastic, the home is amazing and filled with high quality hardware and construction. There are views of the ocean from almost every room, with breathtaking 25ft tall windows in the living room. The infinity pool was terrific and maintained daily. The bedding and beds, at least the 2 kings upstairs were the most comfortable Ive felt in a long time at any rental. Over head fans and AC system kept the house cool. We had a major/minor problem with they “away” programming of the thermostats that would reset to 90F but that was soon fixed by Tony and we also got a handle on it eventually. The kitchen was very well stocked and very well appointed. The outdoor grill was spotless and fully functional. The dishwasher was broken and as much as a problem as that might have been the house and view eventually made up for that after the initial bummer of not having one.
Since the owners use this house sometime during the year the closet in the master bedroom was unavailable but could be worked around.
The town of Playa Hermosa is wonderful. We stayed at the height of the Easter Costa Rican Holiday and found the beach slowly filling primarily with Costa Rican families. There are not Americanized resorts or tourist garbage that comes with it closeby. You have a feeling of mixing with everyone as a local on a Holiday. The people were friendly with a few of the typical people trying to carry your bag or take you on a tour, all polite, but forward.
The live-in keepers of this home(in a completely separate but attached residence), Tony and Yolanda were warm and a wonderful addition to make our stay as pleasant as possible. They made food recommendations, places to go, things to see. Tony helped keep everything running and tried fix anything that had a problem. The deck was swept daily, and in a word perfect. It was always a pleasure to talk to either one during our stay.
Hopefully, this home will not become an overused rental, because I believe a few of the systems would need to be replaced with frequent use and I’ve seen gorgeous homes turn into a mess because of overuse.
We also went during the end of the dry season, and it was DRY! Everything appeared dead, except the cactus and a few hardy trees. I’ve seen photos during the wet season and I don’t recognize the place, green everywhere. 15 min walk to beach, store close by.
Thanks for sharing your home!
Maintenance still an issur
There was still no hot water , and there were bathroom issues but the pool was well maintained and the views are sweet. The caretaker and his family were great
Poorly Maintained, Not as Advertised
There was no hot water in master bath (or closet). The downstairs guest bathroom was broke for 2 weeks. The pool was rarely an infinite since the pump was broken. No access to garage or separate quarters. Sleeps 8 not 10. There are only 4 patio chairs. The property was barely cleaned. The bathrooms were filled with all of the owners' toiletries (disgusting). The plumbing clogged and the downstairs filled with 2 inches of water. Oh and we had to fill the propane tank at out own expense. James was very unhelpful.
family of nine
Indeed a fantabulous (fantastic + fabulous) place to stay in Playa Hermosa. The house ( Mansion) is absolutely awesome. The view is magnificent and the infinity pool feels as if you are in the pacific ocean. The place is very secure with gated security guards 24 ×7. I would definitely go back. The owner is a great guy. Thank you james for having us.
Paradise in Costarica
This house was great! It had a backup generator and wireless internet. If we had any questions James was always available on his cell with any questions we had. We loved the music that you could hear from the resort at night so relaxing. The location was great it was close to playa coco and Ginger Restaurant which was in front of the subdivision which had great food. Be back next year!
Thanks Mark, let me know when you are ready to come back! i am glad you had a great time, the back up electric is a must in costarica!
