We stayed at Villa Serena for a week at the beginning of May. It is about an hour and a half from Liberia airport at the end of the road going through Playa Carilllo. I drank water out of the taps and had no issues but there are plenty of small stores in the area to purchase food, drinks and alcohol. Hint: Purchase your hard liquor at the airport. Cheaper for some reason, I think taxes.
The home itself is sitting on a cliff about 50 feet above a small beach. Every now and then locals would use it and go sit on the rocks to watch the waves crash, but most of the time, you have it to yourself. The beach is a short walk down a moderate pathway and if you ventured out onto the rocks you get to view some wonderful sunsets. The waves crashing on the rocks was constant and the sound carried throughout the home. All the amenities in the home were high end and in very good working order including the pool.
Three of the four bedrooms were nice size with their own bathrooms, one was much smaller and would have to use one of the other baths.
We have been to CR several times and I must say that Denisse provided the most information about the surrounding area and things to do of all the VRBO homes that we have rented. This home also had the best views of our stays and the best feeling of seclusion.
Modesto and Marcia were wonderful and attentive without being intrusive.
