About Nita Holmes
We both come from a strong background of art and beauty and have had the privilege of traveling and staying in some fabulous places. My husband, a landscape architect, and I could not pass up building our own dream home with a world class architect on a world class site. We designed Casa Holmes to be a place where our own family would like to return to while keeping in mind what we valued as guests while visiting new places.
Why Nita Holmes chose Coco
At the time of when we built Casa Holmes we had many sites to choose from. We choose this one because of the spectacular view with almost voyeuristic intimacy with Playas del Coco Bay while being removed enough to give our guests the privacy most of us relish. It is literally a short 3 minute walk to the beach.
What makes this House unique
The siting of Casa Holmes is extremely unique. We think its simplistic beauty creates a place to relax and reflect. Being in the landscape business locally we are continually doing things to the property to enhance our guests experience, ie kitchen herb garden, tropical gardens , and fruit trees planted. We do not pretend that Casa Holmes is perfect and yet we hope our attention to detail inside and out makes a difference to our guests experience. We want our guests to leave feeling pampered and rejuvenated from the beauty that surrounds them.

As Spectacular as it Looks!
Over the past decade, we have rented about a dozen vacation homes on HomeAway and VRBO. Casa Holmes is definitely the best of the lot. Not only is it a stunning home, but it is also very well-equipped. For example, the kitchen has good quality appliances and utensils - making cooking at home a breeze. The bathrooms have soaps and shampoos - great if you forgot to bring them. Kenia, the property manager, did a great job having the house ready and is available when needed.
The only thing to note - and this is something others have highlighted - is that the driveway is incredibly steep. This is certainly something to consider if you are traveling with folks who may have mobility issues.
Such a stunning home with world class views!
My family and I absolutely loved Casa Holmes!! The views are incredible. The home is impeccably clean. All of the rooms are spacious and set up perfectly for a family, or a few couples wanting some alone time in paradise. The entire Costa Rican experience was awesome!! We can not wait to return!
A very special thank you Nita for be so helpful and available for questions. I can not put into words how much we appreciated and loved Kenya! What an amazing house manager! If you need ANYTHING Kenya iz on top of it. She and the staff were very kind.
Thank you again Casa Holmes for making our family vacation one to remember.
Thank You and God bless
Incredible open view of the bay, and facing west for the sunsets.
We recommend this property for family or friends vacationing together in Costa Rica.
Stunning views, beautiful modern home, infinity pool.
This place housed 3 couples very comfortably: the master had a private bathroom, the downstairs studio has a private bath (views are obscured from the downstairs studio), then two other bedrooms on the main floor shared a Jack and Jill bathroom between them. The driveway is the only obstacle to considering this place to be perfect. The driveway is very steep-I highly recommend having a car so you don’t have to endure that climb twice whenever you want to do something. We loved it!
I am glad our home worked for your stay. My sister did the driveway something like 6 times in a row after walking the beach 3-4 times training for a marathon. 2 times a day is more than plenty for me.
Thanks for also pointing out that our planting has finally grown in on the studio below. We worked hard to get the privacy we wanted for the entire house but will need to ammend on our website every room has an “ocean view.” My husband and I personally like to retreat to the studio to relax or work especially if we have lots of guests.
4 minute walk to beach with a beach club that will rent out kayaks etc. Deep sea fishing, sailing, scuba diving, sunset cruises, snorkeling/picnic trips etc. leave directly from Playas del Coco beach .
