About the property

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom with Ocean and Mountain Views

Spectacular ocean view three bedroom, two bath private Playa Hermosa villa for rent. This wonderful vacation rental has a fully appointed granite eat-in kitchen, oversize jacuzzi tub, and a private infinity edge pool. The inside of the villa is beautiful with the exposed teak beam open ceilings, but by far the best feature of the villa is the deck overlooking the private infinity edge pool that gives way to a Million Dollar ocean view! The villa is comfortably appointed with furniture from local artisans. Enjoy a soak in the 2 person jacuzzi, or take a dip in your private pool.

This gated resort style community is centered in the heart of Playa Hermosa and sits high on a hill to afford beautiful views of Peninsula Papagayo and the ocean beyond. The beautiful beach is minutes from the front door by walking, and there are numerous restaurants nearby. Within the development is a restaurant/bar, first-aid, grocery store, spa, mini golf, movie theater, BBQ area, nature trails with waterfall, and a pool with two slides.

Playa Coco is minutes away and provides additional dining and night life. Arenal and other volcanoes are a three hour drive (or 15 min flight) and there are numerous surf and kite-board beaches nearby.

Rest, relax and get away, or venture out for all of the activities Costa Rica has to offer. Your choice! Come enjoy our piece of gold coast paradise....

About Laurie

I run and own my own travel agency. I have traveled around the world, but I truly fell in love with Costa Rica and all of its natural beauty.

Laurie purchased this house in 2009

Why Laurie chose Playa Hermosa

Pura Vida...Costa Rica is a true paradise!

Guestbook comments from the owner

he home was beautiful. The inside was exactly as the pictures showed and the pool and view was even more beautiful than the pictures. I'm glad we chose to rent a car. It allowed us to visit the many beaches near by and check out the shopping and night life in Playa Coco. Which was so much fun.

Also all the tour trips we wanted to do where only anywhere from half an hour to an hour away. So we got to spend more time playing than driving.

Our whole trip was so amazing there is no way I could say what I liked best about it. But being able to come home to our view and pool was at the top of the list.

The property was fantastic and far exceeded my expectations! The house is well equipped and tasteful

  • 5 of 5

This place is perfect if your looking for somewhere to go relax and and enjoy some down time. The house is very spacious and accommodating. The beds where comfortable. The view was spectacular! The private pool was fantastic as well as the community pool with a swim up bar. Playa hermosa is a mellow town with a great beach

And if you are looking for night life playa Coco is only a 10 min drive down the road. I would definitely come back!!!!

Great location - wonderful hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

I can't believe I forgot to write a wonderful review for this property this past summer when we stayed! It was wonderful! There were four of us (all ladies) for a girls' trip and this property was perfect. The view and the infinity pool were the prized jewel of the property. It was centrally located in town and was a quick trip up and down a hill in the car to exit the gated community. The hospitality was fabulous - and the property manager was a quick text away and was good at responding and answering questions. He helped us book a phenomenal day out on a catamaran and answered lots of questions we had about things to do in the area! I highly recommend this spot!

A Great House with a Spectacular View

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very enjoyable four nights at the house with our two young kids. It was absolutely perfect for our needs. We were close enough to the beach that we went each day and also had lunch looking at the ocean. Then we would return for naps and spend the rest of the day by the infinity pool and soaking in the amazing view. We had a chef, Rocio, come and prepare dinner for us in the kitchen and she was also amazing, and the kitchen had everything we needed to eat meals at home. All in all, it was a perfect vacation!

A spectacular stay!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is just gorgeous! My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights and didn't want to leave. Highlights include the views of the ocean, the infinity pool, spacious living/kitchen area, and huge master suite. Very close to the beach and easy access to the main roads/highway for day trips. Laurie gave us some wonderful recommendations; Father Rooster restaurant in Playa Coco is a must.

We had a long year with my suffering through cancer treatment and a life threatening infection, followed by the sudden death of my mother in law. We needed a vacation! We hadn't ever used VRBO before but knew people who had. I searched and found this property and it looked spectacular and exactly what we needed for my husband and I, 3 daughters, son in law and two small children (aged 11 months and 18 months). It was exactly as advertised. We felt at home immediately and the home was just lovely. The limited access community gave us peace of mind and the location allowed us to do anything we wanted. We loved Playa Hermosa and spent a few days there just enjoying the sun and surf. Laurie was extremely helpful giving us suggestions for things to do and Milagro management was great!

Definitely rent a car as things aren't really within walking distance, particularly if you have children with you. We went to the jungle cat rescue place (Los Pumas) and the African safari. I recommend both! The children really loved it. Every morning we sat and watched the world awaken and listened to the howler monkeys and birds get ready for the day. Lots of parrots around. The Magpie Jays will come right up and eat out of your hands. As birdwatchers, we loved this. The kids were in awe.

We took Laurie's suggestion and went to Ginger for dinner one night. I'd recommend it! The food was wonderful. Our daughter is a chef so mostly we cooked at the house (there is a great grocery store in Playa Coco).

I just can't say enough nice things about the whole experience. Don't hesitate to rent this place. Laurie is extremely helpful and the property her family owns will certainly suit the needs of your family if you choose to go. All of the people involved were great and we had no concerns.

This was our second time in Costa Rica so we knew some things about the roads. They're not great. Driving is not a problem but some roads might take your breath away occasionally. I'd recommend using a tour company for anything mountain related (zip lining, volcano tours, canopy tours, etc) as the roads up there might leave you a touch frightened. For other things, just plan well and you'll be fine.

All in all, a perfect spot and a perfect property. Don't hesitate to book it.

This was our first time renting with VRBO in a foreign country. It couldn’t have been better! Laurie, the owner, was very helpful getting everything set up. Adobe met us as expected. Laura from Milagro showed us to the house and helped with a fishing trip. It all went like clockwork. The house was just right for the 7 of us. Everything was as pictured. The grandkids enjoyed the pool after a long day of sightseeing. It is on a steep hill and you definitely need a car to get to the beach. Went to Pinca Beach in our car. That was an adventure!

We used Sibu tours for all of our excursions. They did a fantastic job. It was wonderful to sit on the porch and watch the birds and the beautiful sunsets in the evening. Would definitely recommend this villa. Costa Rica has so much to offer. Would love to go back someday.
