Villa 4 Las Brisas-Award Winner!

Playa Hermosa villa

3 bedrooms / 3 bathrooms / sleeps 8

“Paradise...check” My family found paradise ...Playa Hermosa. A very quaint town not overly run with tourist attractions. This condo was amazing. It was clean and comfortable with many fantastic amenities. We grilled out during a big football game here in the states. We swam laps and splashed around in the clean and quiet pool just feet from the condo. We were able to capture beautiful sunsets from the second floor balcony. The property staff also gave us limes and bananas picked on site that morning. A few step from the condo gets you to the ocean where the waves are crashing and the monkeys are playing over head. The on-site managers were friendly, kind, and very helpful suggesting things to do and see. The area was very safe. We all agreed we will return!

Playa Hermosa villa

“Awesome place” Our family spend a lovely week there. The property is located less than 2 minutes walk to the beach and it is very safe. Pool is great and gardens are carefully maintained. The property caretaker and guards were very courteous. The house is clean, spacious and has the basics to cook there. There is also Wi-Fi. Great view of the ocean from the balcony and easy to go to super market and restaurants. Playa Hermosa was quiet and relax during the month of august. This beach is very close to the city of Liberia and it is a great point to do day around Guanacaste, either to other beaches, volcanoes, waterfalls or rivers.

“Lovely, private, inspirational home” I stayed here with my husband, teen daughter and 2, 20 something year old kids. The house is about 20 min from the airport, 5 minutes to the grocery store and restaurants and beaches, but still very private. It is everything you would want in a tropical getaway - Clean, cool, open and welcoming. We used the whole house and found it to be very comfortable - the beds were VERY comfortable. We spent the cooler parts of the day on the patios and enjoyed the incredible, unbeatable views to the ocean. In fact, my favorite part of the vacation was spending the early morning sipping delicious Costa Rican coffee on the balcony while listening to the countryside awake. The local manager, Myra, was very helpful, accommodating and available. She was able to secure a cook for us one night so we could have the "typical" dinner - delicious. Please note: the scary looking dirt road UP the hillside led us to the house. It's a very short ascent, but you will need a 4 wheel drive, or at least a larger car to make it up - we got used to it after a couple of days, but we had a good car and got a lot of experience on dirt roads with our travels around the country during the week. This house would be great for a large gathering, multiple families or a party!

Playa Hermosa villa

“A spectacular vacation” Our vacation to Costa Rica was made special, indeed spectacular, thanks to the efforts of the people at Costa Rica Star Villas. Mar-a-Villa was luxurious, and provided our group of ten not only a wonderful "home away from home" but only a convenient base from which we could take advantage of all that Costa Rica has to offer - from scuba diving to deep sea fishing to zip-lining to river rafting and beyond. Costa Rica Star Villas provided us our own private concierge, driver, maid and chef - all of whom worked very hard to make us comfortable and all of whom contributed to our outstanding experience in Costa Rica.

“Peace of mind and close to everything...” I am a travel agent here in the country and I like to explore with the family new options so I can recommend places to clients and friends.

Pacifico - Fabulous Ocean View New 2 Bed 2 Bath

Playas del Coco apartment

2 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms / sleeps 6

“Absolutely perfect!” This has been one of the most beautiful vacation rentals I have had the pleasure of staying in. The photos don't do this place justice. I was blown away by the panoramic ocean views from the balcony and how meticulously the condo and community grounds are maintained. The furnishings are brand new and very high-end, especially for Costa Rica. The king bed is extremely comfortable with quality linens, and I'm sure the queen bed in the spare bedroom is just as comfortable, even though it wasn't used. The condo is very secure and in a gated community that is guarded 24/7 which was a nice reassurance. Pacifico is also within walking distance to everywhere in Coco that you'd need to go. I would not hesitate recommending this accommodation to anyone visiting Costa Rica. This is truly the best place you could stay in Playas del Coco, it doesn't get any better! Thank you Dave for your wonderful hospitality.

“Costa Rican Paradise” We stayed here for 8 nights to attend a friend's wedding at the nearby Westin resort. We are so glad we chose this route instead of staying in one of the bigger hotels. It was peaceful, accommodating, clean and gave us a real taste of Costa Rica. The locals were wonderful and the nearby beach and few restaurants in the area, is all you need to enjoy your own piece of paradise.

“Our trip was awesome” Our stay at Vista Hermosa was amazing. We had a fantastic time the weather was perfect the people were so friendly. The views were spectacular. There was tons of wildlife all around us, the sounds of the howler monkeys and the birds was so interesting. The house was beautiful everything one need was there. We felt like we were the only ones on the peninsula it was perfect not crowed loved being on the beach by ourselves with the iguanas, pelicans and the monkeys. The beach club was perfect and the food and service was great. We loved our stay and would definitely go back.

About Playa Hermosa

Playa Hermosa in Puntarenas, Costa Rica, is only 5 km south of Jaco. It is a mecca for surfers, where the waves can reach 13 feet. Of course, there are many other things to do if the surf isn't up! Search FlipKey for your ideal place to stay and choose from luxury villas or beachfront cabins.

About Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica

Hernán Ponce de León discovered Puntarenas in the 16th century, although there were native tribes already in the area.

Coffee has played a central role in the development of the region since it was discovered by the Europeans. In the early 19th century, it became famous for exporting it, as well as bananas.

The traditional dress in the area is beautiful. Women wear long colored skirts (golas) with ruffled blouses with different color trimming. Their hair is braided and decorated with a flower. Men wear a hat with a wide brim and white, or light pants with shirts tucked into a red belt or sash. 

While you're there try rondon, a spicy coconut soup. You can also buy refreshing fruit juices (naturales) on the streets. Mango, pineapple and melon juices are among the favorites. Another favorite local dish is gallo pinto—rice and black beans.

The vibrant culture, and the surfing, make for an exciting vacation!

What to do in Playa Hermosa

Surfing is the main reason for vacationing in Playa Hermosa. However, there are plenty of other things to do if that's not your thing.

Visit Carara National Park and see the crocodiles in the Tarcoles river. If you don't like large reptiles, there are many brightly colored birds to spot. The area is incredibly rich with wildlife so you may see opossums, two-toed sloths, agoutis, armadillos, pacas, great anteaters, and poison-arrow frogs (if you are lucky). You will certainly see monkeys!

From Jaco, you can take a trip to Tortuga (turtle) island. You’ll see beautiful species of parrot, but be careful of the wild pigs—they can be dangerous.

Take one of the many cruises on offer. Visit the untouched mangroves on an Eco Jungle tour. It's a great way to while away an afternoon.

Visit the Monteverde Cloud Forest Biological Reserve. This is one of the best examples of sustainable tourism in the world.

There's something for everyone in Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica.

Top travel tips for Playa Hermosa

Probably the best way of getting from A to B in Playa Hermosa and Puntarenas is to hire a car at the airport. You can also hire scooters and bikes.

Take a ferry from the city of Puntarenas and visit one of the small villages on the coast of the Nicoya Peninsula. This will give you an insight into the daily life of the people from the Puntarenas region.

The Gulf of Nicoya is worth a visit to see the spectacular sunsets. Why not take a picnic?

For an unforgettable surfing vacation go to Playa Hermosa. There's a lot to see and do and the local cuisine is excellent. You won't be disappointed. You can get off the well-beaten tourist track, or visit the bustling city of Puntarenas. The choice is yours!

Why not book your ideal rental accommodation now through FlipKey? Check out our incredible range of options and find the perfect place for you.

Very Private: La Casita, Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste
Nice

Was as advertised. Beautiful place, iguanas, squirrels and howler monkeys on the property. Darn monkeys howling at 4 am but loved it. Beach was fantastic. We were all alone on the property. Only thing I might have liked a little more contact with owners. We were a little unsure but figure it out. Thanks Linasee more
Infinity ocean view house with a private pool in gated community
Sergio B.

My friends and I were looking to get away to the beach for a week of rest and relaxation. We certainly found it at Marina's house. It is beautifully decorated and just so very comfortable!! All amenities are top notch. Some days we decided to hang by the pool....then decide to hop on the golf cart and head to beach....which is in 10 minutes by a boat on the other side coast in resort " Four Seasons". We had such a great time and working with "BeachFront" was a breeze. We will definitely be back! Thanks !! :)see more
Villa 4 Las Brisas-Award Winner!
Perfect Get-a-way!

Las Brisas is the perfect place to stay! The villa is spacious, nicely furnished, and stocked with many helpful basic supplies. I traveled with 2 other couples and there was plenty of room for all of us to relax. The villa is part of a gated communicated which is very safe, the grounds are well-maintained and the pool is also very nice! The best part is the proximity to the beach; Las Brisas is right on Playa Hermosa. There are some great restaurants within walking distance as well (Robertsons, and El Velero). I highly recommend this vacation rental.see more
Luxury at the Top! Spectacular Ocean View- Unsurpassed Luxury
Magnificient Villa with great amenities, but one problem

Mar-a-villa is a gorgeous villa with a spectacular view, a great infinity pool, and awesome living and entertaining space that includes a pool table. Six adults and 5 children spent a wonderful week's vacation in Costa Rica, having plenty of activities besides enjoying down time just relaxing. The view from the verandas and the infinity pool is beyong description as are the awesome sunsets. We encountered one problem at the villa. The conceirge staff stocked our kitchen and refrigerator with groceries prior to our arrival. They did a very good job. However, the maid assigned to our villa on a daily basis stole some of our food. it was very upsetting. The concierge staff rectified this by restocking our food and changing the maid responsible for cleaning the villa. One other small problem was that the floor of the veranda with the infinty pool was very slippery and a couple of us fell as a result. Those are the only reasons I cannot give this review 5 stars. Finally, the staff in the U.S. was great in setting us up with a driver and van for the week and helping us plan our excursions and chef for dinner nightly.see more
Villa Del Cielo--minutes to the beach and beautiful ocean views--your vacation in sunny,lovely Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica!!
Wonderful tropical Holiday.

We (family of 6) had a wonderful time staying at villa del cielo. After arriving at LIR it was a short 15 minute drive to the house. The location of the house to there airport is a big plus. Myra, the property manager, met us at the house when we arrived to give us a tour of the property. She is very knowledgeable of the area and was helpful in us getting our bearings. She mentioned all the recent upgrades that the new owner has done in the past year not to mention the beautiful local art collection. We especially enjoyed the outdoor living space with bbq and terraces with views of the ocean. The plunge pool was quite refreshing after a walk back from the beach. Hermosa is very family friendly, clean and safe. We saw lots of monkeys. Tours were close by. The zip we went on was very memorable.see more

This studio was perfect for our stay in Playa Hermosa. Clean, very close to the beach and the pictures are an accurate representation of the studio. The owners were very accommodating and provided answers to all of our questions. We would stay here again if returning to Playa Hermosa. … see more
