|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Our villa is only 20 minutes for the Liberia International airport. We are located in Playa Hermosa on the Papagayo Gulf Peninsula.
The villa has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, full kitchen, a/c, internet, BBQ, TV, DVD, laundry & is fully equipped for 6 people. We have our own private plunge pool in the terrace area.
The villa is in a gated community which is shared with an all inclusive resort. We have security service 24/7, an on site shuttle service is available to guests from 6 am to 11 pm. My guests have free access to most of the the Resort amenities such as pools (one with a sloped edge entry for the little kids), health club, jacuzzi area and wet bar, organized daily activities, Gym, Spa, and tour agency.
You can walk down to the beach for a swim, or be part of the resort beach activities. We recommend you to visit the Heliconias swimming pool, in order to be advised about daily activities for all.
20 minutes to Liberia International Airport: One of the reasons we chose to purchase in this area is its close proximity to the Liberia airport. It is a short 20 minute drive over new roads. As well, the northwest part of the country has a drier heat than the rest of the country so you don't feel the humidity like some of the other areas.
Once you arrive at our gated resort, there are complimentary staffed open air vehicles that shuttle resort guests around the property, to the beach, restaurants, to the 2 large pools, (one of which has a swim up bar), the disco and sports facilities including new tennis and basketball courts.
If you really want to be pampered you can take part in the Resort's all inclusive food and beverage packages.
Things to Do Nearby: There are five National Parks within a couple of hours drive, including Lake Arenal (2 hours away), which boasts a live volcano, hot springs with world class spas. Wind surfing at Lake Arenal is also world famous.
Take a boat tour in the Palo Verde Reserve. Here you will see many exotic birds, crocodiles, and perhaps some monkeys.
Go to Guatil and see where the local pottery is made using the traditional methods.
Also nearby are deep sea fishing, first class scuba diving, sailing, four wheeling and zip lines for racing through the tree tops on a rigged line with a harness, just to mention a few.
If you have a car you can easily do these tours on your own but if you prefer you can arrange these excursions onsite at the hotel through Swiss Travel.
The Beach: Most of the beaches in Costa Rica are darker sand beaches because of the lava rock. Playa Hermosa literally means 'beautiful beach' and it truly is. It is a great family beach, normally with gentle waves with no rip tides. The waves can be great for boogy boarding but if you want to surf you need to drive about an hour south to some of the beaches down the coast. Snorkeling can be done right from the shore or you can hire a boat to take you out for a few hours. The local Playa Hermosa Association pays to have the beach cleaned several times a week so the beach is not littered.
My late husband and I bought this property on the spur of the moment, when it was still a vision in our minds on a barren hill. The villa was completed in about 1995 and I have been vacationing there yearly since that time.
Diane MacCormac purchased this villa in 1990
Costa Rica is a hot country but the Northwest are is a much drier hear so not as humid. Plus along the ocean there always seems to be a breeze which makes it much more comfortable.
Why go anywhere else when you found Paradise.
My property is located in a Resort,which is in a gated community. This provides a great deal of security along with the benefits of having access to the resort amenities.
Esta Villa es uno de mis lugares preferidos para vacacionar, lo visito con regularidad, sus condiciones me hacen sentir tan cómoda como en casa, por que cuenta con todo lo necesario en la cocina ,dormitorios, baños, sala y terraza, así como una piscina privada que nos permite compartir en familia y pasar momentos muy divertidos.
Cabe destacar que cada ves que visito este lugar lo encuentro muy limpio y ordenado y la atención de las personas encargadas de la Villa es excelente. También el lugar ofrece mucha seguridad y estoy muy cerca de una hermosa playa caminando a 5 minutos.
Los invito a conocer esta hermosa Villa.
Beautiful property, and the setting is nothing less than spectacular. The villa inside was amazing, with a nice AC, very useful kitchen, good cable, all the amenities. The beach itself is one of the best ones in Guanacaste, ideal for kids(almost no waves, snorkel clarity). I would come back to Playa Hermosa at any time
Beautiful comfortable spacious well equipped villa - really it was nicer than my house! with its own private plunge pool, great ac, well equipped kitchen, grill, terrace, --- I could go on and on about how wonderful it is. And then just walk down the hill to the most beautiful beach I have ever seen! You just can't beat it for the price. Do not hesitate to stay at Villa Concha Fina. I will remember this vacation forever!
This Villa was beautiful! We walked in the door and the "WOW" factor hit. This Villa is exceptionally clean, it is located inside a beautiful all- inclusive resort with great restaurants, nice pools, and great staff. Diane, the owner was so helpful throughout the entire booking process, shared pictures, and included dozens of important facts about traveling in Costa Rica. This Villa has its own private plunge pool and was very well maintained. Nothing was better than ending our days in Costa Rica in our own pool relaxing to the sounds of Costa Rica. Within the resort, we were able to book various tours, drive to different beaches, and see so many beautiful parts of Costa Rice. The Villa is just 30 minutes from Liberia Airport. The property manager Diane uses, Uriel, met us on the arrival date and showed us everything. Uriel was very helpful and provided his local number if we needed anything. Between the beauty of the Villa, the availability of assistance if needed, and the sense of security a resort provides, Diane's Villa made our vacation to Costa Rica perfect. We will be sharing her information with everyone we know as the Villa provides everything a person could want while visiting Costa Rica.
I found this Villa to be very comfortable, quiet and modern. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need. Bathrooms are clean and tidy. The hammock is in the perfect spot to just lay back and forget about time. The beach is just a short walk away. Send the kids down to beach while you enjoy a romantic swim in the wrap-around pool. Sometimes I have trouble sleeping while I travel, not here. With 28 countries well traveled on a shoestring I recommend staying here! Best R&R for your Colonies!
I am booking a week for next winter.
The villa was great, only thing missing was a bedroom clock, but we weren't into time on vacation so no worries. There is a washer but no dryer, we were there in rainy season so things took a bit longer to air dry than in dry season, but we all but lived in our bathing suits so not a big problem. Everything in working order, the staff that owner has hired tended to our every need. The local driver/guide recommended was super, Herson was our best bud. The resort pools are great, don't forget to check out the sister resort, the grounds better suited for kids with things for them to do. The beach is wonderful with a nice beach restaurant just off to the left, a short walk. All the staff at the resort were great, the villa was a great location with in the resort. Shuttle service between all amenities was very helpful. Diane (owner) was a pleasure to work with , she had lots of suggestions and resources. Lap pool was cool, but refreshing. We all fought over who got to snooze in the hammock. Would love to stay there again, not sure when we will get back to Costa Rica but whoever stays here won't be disappointed.
