Clean, comfortable, fun

  • 4 of 5
Our family (including two kids ages 7 & 9) had a great time in Playa Hermosa. There are so many places to visit on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica and we fell in love with Playa Hermosa. The views and the beach are outstanding especially since the water is a bay with few waves; the water felt like a bath. The rental was very comfortable with A/C included which was not standard in our rentals. You definitely need a car to stay here with many things in walking distance but the distances are more than 10-15 minutes. Great restaurants around and many options for adventures. We used Tico Tours. We had a great time and did not want to leave after our week's stay.

Owner's Response: Dan:
I am very pleased that you enjoyed your visit to my villa and my community. I certainly agree that there are many fine places to visit in the area and in addition many reasonably priced activities to be enjoyed. I particularly enjoy the snorkeling in the waters off Playa Hermosa beach and the beautiful underwater sights. In addition to the fine restaurants nearby, I hope you found the clean and well-stocked grocery store just a minute walk from the community entrance gate where good local foods, supplies and beverages of all types can be purchased at local, reasonable prices.

I hope you will be able to come again in the near future.

Best wishes,
Russ - Owner

Great location, clean and relaxing

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a wonderful vacation here. It is centrally located, easy to find, and it is simply gorgeous. We were able to visit several beaches, a national park, and we enjoyed the pool as well. The house is clean, well equipped, and the property manager was a pleasure to deal with. We had a slight issue with the front door, and this was resolved promptly. I recommend this wonderful home to any family who wants a relaxing, clean home to stay. Just thinking about sitting on the deck, having my cup of coffee in the morning, with the view of the ocean, makes me want to go back. Thank you Russ and Corby.

Hermosa Heights condo

  • 5 of 5
This is a large, clean home in a condo association park with a large deck and view of the ocean. The pool is down a hill about 75 meters away down a narrow road that goes past other condos. The pool is large and clean with a large deck area and two slides. The owner had a person to open the condo and she was available for questions, etc. The owner was very easy to deal with and quick to respond to questions. He even thoughtfully provides two flashlights in the unit.
Everything in the condo worked as designed. There was plenty of hot water and a large fridge. There is a grocery store in walking distance.
The condo has security day and night although I do not think crime is a big problem in CR. There is not much traffic in the condo area, so safe to walk, etc. In my experience the beach at Hermosa is safe, very slight waves, good for children. It is a 15 minutes walk away past other resorts, condos, etc. There are good restaurants in walking distance. Another advantage is that it is a short (20 -25 min.) drive to the airport, and easy to do.
I think this condo is a very good choice for a relaxing and safe place to stay in CR. I went with my wife and two adult children and there was plenty of room. If you want more excitement, Playas Coco is a 5 mile drive, and Liberia about a half hour away. I would definitely return to this condo. P.s., it was over 90 with clear blue skies every day for our week in February.

A very nice week, thanks Russ!!

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I had a very comfortable, nice stay at Antonelda. The most valued elements for us at Antonelda were proximity to beach and primary road for our daily excursions, plentiful hot water for showers( our fifth visit to the area and other previous villas were not as plumbing prepared), great towels and linens, well equipped kitchen, washer/dryer for midweek use, small ice chest and noodle floats for our use at pool or day trips, and even the careful thoughtfulness of cord switches on all lamps for easy nighttime use. The local property manager Corby was always reachable and immediately helpful to the few times we had a question or needed a little help, thank you Corby!! We believe we got a very fair deal for a fair price compared with other stays in Guanacaste over these last 5 years. Thanks Russ! If pressed to provide idea re how to make Antonelda even more perfect, our only thoughts might be a couple of soft cushioned deck lounge chairs and a grill. But regardless, we would love to return for a longer stay!

Fabulous Stay!

  • 5 of 5
We booked our stay after reading all of the other great reviews, and the villa did not disappoint! Very clean, very comfortable and well stocked / furnished. We had everything that we needed at hand. The beds were newer and comfortable, and the linens, towels, etc are of great quality. Russ, the owner, obviously cares greatly about the villa, it is highly maintained. Our favorite place to start our mornings were on the deck, watching the sun change the color of Papagayo Bay, listening to the birds, experiencing the howler monkeys. The pool was a big hit with our young kids, and is also immaculate. They had smoothies at the waterside bar. Hermosa was a great place for us to be introduced to Costa Rica, a great area of the country for us to go seek adventures and return home nightly to pure comfort. Russ and Corby (property manager) were great to work with, both very prompt and truly cared that we had the best stay possible. We couldn't ask for anything more! If and when we return, we'll certainly call on Russ and hope to stay again. Thank you for providing such a first great impression of Costa Rica!
