Casa de la Montana is an intriguing vacation property for a family/group size ranging from 6-10 people. The Casa is located in an upscale community of Playa Hermosa on the Gulf of Papagayo, five minutes north of the little town of Coco and twenty five minutes from Liberia International Airport. This Casa aptly earns its name because in Spanish the words Casa de la Montana mean (House on the Mountain) and, sitting on top of one of the highest points in Playa Hermosa, the panoramic views of the sparkling blue waters of the nearby Gulf of Papagayo are incredibly dramatic.
Casa de la Montana is comprised of a main casa and a smaller casita totaling approximately 8,000 square feet of living space. This property in total offers five suites (three in the main casa, two in the casita) that can accommodate up to 10 guests. Each suite offers bathroom facilities, air conditioning, ceiling fans, and outstanding views as outlined in the grid below. The main casa, in addition to its three bedroom suites, features a gourmet kitchen with black granite countertops and high quality appliances; great balconies with comfortable conversational seating areas; a dark blue infinity pool accessed from the lower level; a BBQ area; and a comfortable interior TV, living and dining area featuring large windows that embrace the amazing panoramic ocean views. Special note must also be made of the Casa"s master bedroom: it is literally fit for a king with an amazing, huge master bath and chandelier...very inviting! The Casita, in addition to its two suites, has its own kitchen and living/tv areas perfect for the younger set.
Housekeeping is automatically included at Casa de la Montana. Additionally, transportation, adventure, and food catering packages are also available upon request to make your stay as hassle free and exciting as possible. And, at all times, our local representative will be at your service to facilitate your stay in any way you choose!TripAdvisor property ID 3657318...Read more

Villa is laid extremely well. Pool is amazing with amazing view. Kitchen and living room are all open and gave our group of nine plenty of space to spread out. Two things that would have made it better. The hot tube would not get warm and upstairs ac only worked in two of three bedrooms.
Star Villa's concierge service was amazing. Came to the house to help organize activities. Always available via text, email or phone call. Set up everything we wanted and even had a cake aboard our sunset sail for my mothers birthday.
We are sorry to hear about your problems with the air conditioning and spa. The villa has a jetted spa as part of the pool but not a hot tub; none of our websites or emails mentioned anything about there being a hot tub; sorry for that confusion. As far as the air conditioning, we thought we had explained the central air system with one temperature being set for all rooms. Apparently, one person adjusted the air to a higher temperature and that might have made the other rooms feel warmer as well. We wish you had let us know during your stay about these issues so we could have helped while you were in country. Pura Vida and come back to see us soon!

Our trip to Costa Rica and the Star Villas was beyond perfection! The property itself was beautiful and well maintained by Vidal. He took care of our family in every way possible. Vidal went above and beyond what was necessary, from carrying our groceries in to making coffee and cutting up fresh fruit, he was fantastic! Blair also played a huge role in trip. He took us wherever and whenever we wanted to go. Grocery shopping, picking up dinner, referring us to great restaurants he took his job to the next level. Blair was so kind and thoughtful! One day we were in town and my niece fell and sprained her ankle. Blair was so kind and helpful. He found a doctor that came right to us, took us to get crutches and medication, and helped make Miranda comfortable. He was genuinely concerned about her!
Ariena handled the concierge services with great detail and ease! She made our dinner reservations, airport transfers, canopy tours all without blinking an eye!
You have a great staff at Star Villas and we look forward to a return trip to Costa Rica as soon as possible.
“Amazing home with great hospitality for a perfect vacation!”

We all enjoyed our trip very much. The Casa De La Montana was most luxurious, spacious and unbelievably beautiful. The house is well maintained, gorgeous spacious bedrooms with spectacular views, refreshing infinity pool, and absolutely stunning views from the patio and the balcony on each floor. We loved to sit on the balcony, sip coffee in the morning and enjoyed the ocean views. We even saw several monkeys from the pool. By the way, the infinity pool was fantastic. We also used the Jacuzzi almost every night. Vidal and Lisech, the housekeepers, were so gracious and courteous to all our needs. Vidal was incredibly helpful to show us around town. We specially loved the trip he took us to visit his hometown and deeply touch when his father shared his fruits that he grows in the garden with us. We love their little girl and miss them already. We even miss their dog.
Thank you so much for letting us staying at this 5 stars home. The local people are so friendly. Hopefully, we can come back to this beautiful country one day soon.
