Best Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

My stay at Casa Ilan Ilan was nothing short of magical. From the very moment I walked in, I felt right at home. The tasteful decor coupled with the magical views were unparalleled. The rooms were so spacious and all had a private bathroom. Tons of closet space too! When we arrived there were lovely towel/flower presentations on the beds - a very nice and welcoming touch. The house is air tight, so no need to worry about little critters getting inside. Each room has a beautiful view of the spacious outdoor patio - which has a perfect view of the beach. Everyday we watched the sunset from the deck - truly magical. There is an outdoor dining area complete with a grill. The pool is great and we spent so much time just relaxing and taking in the beautiful views. The staff at Hermosa Heights is great and are very helpful. Bonus that there is a movie theater and great little restaurant right at the bottom of the hill. There is also a small supermarket just down the road with all the necessities. My time at Casa Ilan Ilan was truly unforgettable and I can't wait to come back again!!!

Gorgeous house, great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Casa Ilan Ilan for spring break this year - 4 adults, my 28 year old niece and our two girls, ages 11 and 13. The house was beautiful. Spacious bedrooms, large, very well-appointed bathrooms for every bedroom, well-stocked kitchen and abundant outdoor space. The pool was awesome. I think my 11 year old spent more time in the pool than in her bed that week, but we were all in the pool every day. Note: the jacuzzi is not heated, but you don't need it to be. The views are stunning, even in the dry season. We checked out a bunch of houses in our neighborhood - ours had the largest outdoor area and the best pool, by far!

This house is also perfectly located. Playa Hermosa is a sleepy little town, but very close to Playa Coco with its more lively (and touristy) action. We all agreed that we'd much rather be in Hermosa as a home base. The house is located within walking distance of the beach, but it is a VERY steep hill on the way up. For touring we used Mainor Lama at Tours Your Way. He was awesome!

We highly recommend Casa Ilan Ilan and plan to go back.

AMAZING pool and view!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Ilan Ilan is a beautiful home located in Hermosa Heights. It is in a nice gated neighborhood with a security guard on duty. You can't beat the view! It was so amazing to wake up to the awesome pool and beautiful ocean! The house was very clean and well stocked with plenty of towels and kitchen appliances and utensils. The staff was very friendly.

I definitely recommend having Rocio cook dinner for you! Her food was the BEST we had while staying in Costa Rica! You can see her on TripAdvisor and Facebook (Rocio's Kitchen). Ginger's in Playa Hermosa is also a great place to eat. It's kind of pricey, but very good.

Ziplining is a must! The Congo Trail had excellent tour guides and were very knowledgeable and friendly. We had kids from 6-11 years old in our group. They were nervous to try it, but after they completed the first zipline they were hooked and wanted to do all 9 lines!

Make sure you see Playa Conchal! The water is more blue than the other beaches and there isn't any's just seashells! It's very unique!

I would recommend renting a 4wd. The roads are steep and fun to drive!

Hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did! Pura Vida!

This property is AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

All the amenities you’d expect from a 5-star resort in your own private paradise.

We recently vacationed here as part of a group of 8 friends. Our stay far exceeded our expectations and we absolutely plan to visit again.

This beautiful home’s centerpiece is its large infinity pool with an expansive view of the ocean. The pool features a wading area and several built-in stools where we sat, talked and laughed in the water. The Jacuzzi is raised slightly above the swimming level and is equipped with lighted glass blocks and a waterfall that spills into the pool.

Inside, our group enjoyed gathering and chatting around the more than ample-sized kitchen island. An added feature on the main level is a beautiful master bedroom with a door-wall that opens to the pool deck.

Upstairs are more bedrooms - another lovely master bedroom along with two equally pretty guest bedrooms. As the pictures suggest, the master bath facilities are impressive and the guest baths include spacious glass showers. We were all extremely comfortable with plenty of space in our rooms and individually controlled air conditioners.

The home is centrally located only a minute or two from the pristine Pacific Ocean at Playa Hermosa, a 10-minute drive to Coco Beach and many, many fine restaurants everywhere.

All-in-all, this property is a definite winner!

A Paradise that was hard to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Our friends who have a house nearby recommended Ilan Ilan to us. It was the most fabulous place I could imagine for a family holiday. Our two adult children and their friends shared with us. We would all go back in a heartbeat. The views over the Bay of Papagayo are just as shown, only more so - magnificent! Needless to say, we spent lots of time in the gorgeous pool. The house is new, extremely clean and well- equipped, we had everything we needed. We cooked and ate many meals outside on the beautiful shaded patio area....with "the view" always in front of us. So relaxing! There are lots of good restaurants and things to do in the area. We explored deserted beaches, went diving, snorkelling, fishing (caught way more than we could ever eat!), zip-lining and mud pools etc. at Borinquen in the mountains, river cruise and to crown it all, we joined Ticos at their fun rodeo/fiesta in Liberia. We saw lots of wildlife, and even had regular visits from Beachfront's tame (abandoned at birth) Howler Monkey, Mona Lisa. I'm sure that most visitors to CR do not get to experience a Howler Monkey grinning at them and climbing all over them as we did - sweet!

Guss and Tim at Beachfront were great - very helpful even when we kept locking ourselves out of the safes!

Hint - hire a four-wheel drive if you want to explore - once you leave the main roads, you will find the roads very rough.

We were sad to leave but will be back, as will our kids. This house helped to make our holiday truly exceptional and I have already been telling out friends about it. Quite expensive - but when you can share with others it works out pretty cost-effective we think for such easy-going luxury.
