This wonderfully appointed luxury vacation villa sits on a 650 sq.m. (7,000 sq.ft.) beachfront lot in the exclusive residential gated community of Hermosa Palms on Playa Hermosa.
Consisting of the main house and guest house, Villa La Costa is an eclectic combination of traditional and modern elements, showcased in Costa Rica's renowned Estilos y Casas magazine. Here, tiled roofs, exposed brick domes, rock walls and world art pieces – including original modern art paintings by Tico artists – blend with oversized windows, Italian marble, comfortable mattresses, high-end appliances and an open layout.
The main house boasts high c...eilings with exposed wooden beams and ceramic tile floors. The living area opens to the terrace through sliding doors and isn't far from the dining area, with seating for six. The gourmet kitchen, equipped with stainless steel appliances and beautiful cabinetry, has a view of the beach and pool. There is a storage room for surfboards.
The second-floor sun deck, as well as the covered terrace which overlooks the beach and pool, are ideal for outdoor living. These spaces are furnished for comfort whether relaxing, entertaining, or alfresco dining. The pool has a separate children's pool and the beach club’s oversize pool is only a few feet away.
The break at Playa Hermosa is the most consistent in Costa Rica, and well known among surfers. If you don’t surf, simply enjoy strolling along the long, beautiful stretch of unspoiled beach or swimming at low tide.
Hermosa town, only a 5 minute drive away, is the closest stop for restaurants, bars and groceries. Jaco has more variety, and is just 10 minutes further north. Golf and fishing are 20 minutes away, at Los Suenos Resort and Marina.
While the Villa La Costa consists of the main house and the guesthouse together, they can be rented independently for smaller groups (though not applicable during peak season). If one house is rented separately, the unoccupied house is locked off to ensure a private villa vacation.

La Costa was perfect for our family. The house was beautiful and the location was perfect. The housekeeping staff was pleasant and professional. The chef was so talented and creative. We really looked forward to our evening meals! Our Costa Rica vacation was sooo relaxing and enjoyable. Thanks to Matthew Gerber and Diana Soler for making it happen! - Debbie C., Missouri, USA

The villa is just like the pictures. The view of the waves breaking on the black sand beach is breath-taking. The living area is spacious with plenty of comfortable seating. The chaise lounge needs to be cleaned. The master bedroom is fantastic although the bed takes up a lot of the room but the bathroom area makes up for it. The queen mattress iand bed n the main house needs to be replaced. The guess house is comfortable although it appears to have more space in the pictures. It has it's own front entrance which is great if you want privacy but not so great if you have plan to have the kids stay there. The kitchen is great for cooking. It is very homey. Overall, it is a well maintained wonderful property. - Terisa M., ,
A successful, well planned trip.

We had a great time in Costa Rica! I was pleasantly surprised how smoothly all our outings went. I love the conceirge service that helped us plan activities for our group as well as all the transportation! The staff at our villa was friendly and taught us some Spanish and gave us recipies to take home. The villa is in a perfect location as it felt away from the touristy hub bub and a breath away from the fabulous beach and surf. Despite the fact it is a public beach it was never over crowded. We felt safe with all the security at Hermosa Palms. I would reccommend it to anyone! - Amy S., Nebraska, USA
A tropical paradise!

The villa was in a fabulous location, right on a beautiful beach. Playa Hermosa was an excellent balance between the busy town and the remote jungle. It was not completely remote/private, as it is in a neighborhood and the community pool is next door, but it was never crowded or too noisy. It has several good local restaurants a few minutes drive away, and plenty of activities within an hour drive. The villa itself was very comfortable, nicely furnished and decorated, and well stocked. Our party of 8 (2 families) had more than enough room between the main house, casita, and outdoor areas. The covered patio and grassy lawn were especially great places to enjoy the warm breezes and sound of the ocean and stunning sunsets. - Melissa W., California, USA
The staff, drivers, guides, chef Jose, & manager were all wonder

The location was good but the house was on the market and the furnishings were tired. i.e. broken couch leg which we notified management and had to prop up with books - Grace B., ,
Our Stay at La Costa

We had a fabulous week at La Costa in costa Rica. The house was beautiful with a wonderful patio/pool and beach front location. The community pool was right next door which gave our children endless things to do each day. We had a chef come and prepare two meals for us which were outstanding. The service was excellent and out concerns were promptly attended to. We would absolutely recommend this house to anyone!
