About Robert Pratz

We built originally in this area as a Second Home and enjoy it so much we decided to make this our permanent Home. We added the Villa as a place for our friends to stay when they come and also as a vacation rental.

Robert Pratz purchased this villa in 2009

Why Robert Pratz chose Playa Azul

Scuba Diving and Deep Sea Fishing is great and all within 3 miles of shore.

Horseback riding on the beach or in the mountains is an incredible experience!

Zip Line over Forests at Miss Sky Canopy Tours is the best in Costa Rica.

Driving Rugged 'Tom Cars' thru the mountains and streams is more than fun.

Golf courses near-by are; Hacienda Pinilla, Reserva Conchal and the 4 Seasons located in Papagayo. All three courses are world-class golf courses.

Our sunsets are spectacular! You won't find a better view!

The ocean view from the balcony is breath taking!

The kitchen area is open and spacious!

Close to all but very private with incredible water views.

What makes this villa unique

Kick back and relax, or, fill your days with activities! Start your day listening to waves crashing and parrots chattering, and howler monkeys. Beach comb on the secluded cobalt sand beach, swim in an infinity pool or ocean and relax with a good book. Enjoy sunset while sipping a glass of wine on the balcony.

For the more adventurous...scuba dive, surf, sport fish, zip line, visit a volcano, walk through a rain-forest, bird-watch, golf, take a drive and enjoy the culture of the friendly Costa Rica people. The small towns of Marbella and San Juanillo are only a 5 minute drive. In each there are restaurants and mini-markets. Enjoy mountain exploring in 'Tom Cars.' If you need more excitement, the tourist town of Tamarindo is only an hour away. Pura Vida!

Our family of 7 stayed at Playa Azul for 10 days from March 1-10 2014! We had an amazing time, our children loved the pool and especially the sandy beaches where we fished, swam and had an amazing experience. Robert and Doris are exceptional hosts and took care of all our needs and directed us to some great local establishments. We will definately be returning to Costa Rica at the first opportunity!

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Playa Azul. Doris and Robert were so kind and helpful and a joy to be around. Their guidance for activities was superb. We never felt like our privacy was invaded and the use of their infinity pool and terrace was very welcoming.The house was very clean and the accommodations were more than adequate. I definitely would recommend this rental property.

Good vacation

  • 4 of 5
We rented the house for a week over New Year´s. Everything was pretty much in working order, the kitchen was fully equipped and hosts Robert and Doris made themselves available at all times.

It is important to note that the house for rent is not the one with the infinity pool overlooking the ocean. Rather, it is the one in the back, without a pool.

It is also important to note that the house has 5 rooms (10 ppl) but really lacks enough social space for everyone to hang out comfortably. Because of this drawback, Robert and Doris graciously offer their pool area and the covered porch in front of their spacious kitchen. This however, feels very awkward as we invade their privacy and vice-versa. At one point they asked us not to use this porch since they had guests (they did so gracefully and tactfully). This exacerbated the issue to the point that we used the porch only once.

The infinity pool was great.

The house is conveniently located near Nosara (Playa Pelada and Guiones) and 4K from San Juanillo.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your Review.
We very much enjoyed your visit and hope you will return again.
As always, the infinity pool is for our guest’s private use while they are here.
The 5 bedrooms will adequately house 10 persons as advertised. It was a bit of a strain for the 15 people you had and 5 cars.
We tried to accommodate you and your group by offering you extra amenities.
Our location is conveniently located between and close to many attractions, but not in the mainstream of touristy areas.
The Azul Ocean Club is in our complex and offers many additional amenities. See their website at azuloceanclub.com for more information.
Again, thanks for your visit and review.
Come back soon.

Genuine Hospitality

  • 5 of 5
It has been 2 months since our family said goodbye to Villa Hermosa & Costa Rica.
I seriously felt like crying that day! Our family was genuinely awed & intrigued by the beauty of Costa Rica but I personally was deeply touched by your hospitality. I would be quite happy to eat Doris's baked goods & listen to Robert's stories EVERYDAY! Our entire experience was truly beautiful, yes the land & the country were beautiful but I also found such peace thru the kindness you two gave our family. Our daily "chats" were the highlight of our trip & I miss you! As a mother I can’t express how much your kindness to my children ment to me. Doris, to you it may have been baking xtra banana bread or "just" a cake, to me it was SO much more! To Robert, it may have been 30 minutes in the yard with the kids & King but to me you gave them experiences that will be with them for a lifetime. We went to Costa Rica, not really knowing what to expect, other than we were going on a family adventure. What we came back with is more than I ever dreamed. The sunsets, the beach, the vegetation, the wildlife, the locals, the culture...wouldn't have touched my heart the way it did without the two of you! I have a bit of an adventurer/explorer "spirit" but being hosted by you, I was able to see so much more than just the surface beauty of Costa Rica! The "icing on the cake" for me...was Robert giving me the Passion flower at our departure! I will never forget receiving this precious gift & then going inside Villa Hermosa & telling my mom "I think I have a crush on a guy named Robert!" Lol.... Sorry Doris...he has some great real life stories & the flower pushed me to it! I'm joking!!!! But I did say that to my mom:) In all seriousness tho, Our family won't ever forget the time we spent with the two of you! We live a very busy life, in a "upscale" community. Everyday life is too full of "stuff"... Stuff that really doesn't matter. I will always look back fondly to our time with you...simple, pure beauty, minus the "stuff". Stuff that sometimes makes me short tempered & grouchy...2 things I never experienced during our very real relaxing vacation. You know people always say they need a vacation to recover from vacation, not true when we returned from Costa Rica! I find myself thinking of the two of you often & wishing I was back in time. Then I remember..."Don't cry because it's over...smile because it happened."

We were reluctant to rent this home but decided to try it. We were very glad we did when we compared it to the other cheaper rentals in the area. The owners are very helpful in booking the right things and the right times to do the things we wanted . . .Fishing, Zip Lining, Scuba Diving, and Horseback Riding made our vacation most enjoyable, Wish we would have stayed more than a week. We loved the pool, and we were able to cook amazing meals in the well-stocked kitchen. This house was worth the price tag! Appliances were in excellent condition. The children were in the pool daily. My husband and son went fishing several days and it was just a short drive to the marina. I would highly recommend this house for groups of friends or families.
