About George Peake

We love to travel, and fell in love with Costa Rica about 12 years ago. We appreciate the variety of environments and regions here, the friendliness of the people, and of course the sun and the warm ocean water. With our house we have tried to capture some of the history of the colonial era with all modern conveniences.

Why George Peake chose Playa Hermosa

This area of Guanacaste was designated by the Costa Rican governement to develop tourism, because of the natural beauty here and the drier, more predictable climate. The small community is focused on livablity while keeping substainablity in the forefront.

What makes this villa unique

The awesome view and the easy walk to the beach are key, and the house is great for famlies or small groups with common areas for socializing, plus privacy. The house is deorated to reinforce the lively, tropical feeling of Costa Rica, with all of the amenities of home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We are having a wonderful time at your Casa Buena Vista. All of our young adult children made it here for holiday festivities. The accommodations were great for our family, with everyone having their own room (we took the spacious master suite upstairs), and plenty of general space for gathering. The morning ritual became the entire family sipping coffee and visiting at the outside tables. Following your recommendations, the family enjoyed beaches, a river tour, zip lining, Sunburst Coffee, and some fun shopping for small gifts to take home.

We really appreciate your kitchen facilities. With six of us, it was very pleasant to have meals here when people returned from their day’s adventures. The local grocery and the meat market at the bottom of the hill made for easy shopping. We also discovered the grocery stores in Playas del Coco. Having a full size washer and dryer makes a big difference for this long a stay, and the maid service has been top notch.

Best sunset view ever!!!

The house was perfect! We had two families of four and it was the perfect size and unbelievably beautiful! The pool was great for cool dips in the evening and watching the sunset. I would definitely recommend this house!!!

This home was so beautiful. It was like a dream-come-true for our family. The views are just incredible out of all the sliding doors and windows. There was plenty of room for our family of six but my husband and I would love to come back with some other couples to enjoy a fun week. All of the bedrooms were nice and spacious and could accommodate several couples comfortably. The pool was a great added benefit to come home to after our many excursions or a relaxing swim after the sunset. We also enjoyed seeing the iguanas and hearing the howler monkeys from up there on the mountain. It was a quick walk to the restaurants along the beach which we frequented several times. The one arranged for a fishing trip for us then cooked our fish over two separate meals. Everyone was so friendly and willing to help. The owner was always timely in getting back to me by email and provided us with a lot of information before we came which was so helpful. We all came back raving about our vacation but especially about our spectacular home overlooking the ocean!

Beautiful home: Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

Casa Buena Vista was a perfect choice for four retired couples. The home is spacious, well appointed and beautifully decorated. Frazer, the concierge was extremely helpful, organizing tours and making great suggestions for day trips. It is well located for exploring the beautiful beaches and parks of Guanacaste, with stunning views of Playa Hermosa and spectacular sunsets! Our group was very active, so walking up and down the drive was no problem except maybe in the heat of the afternoon. We walked to nearby restaurants several evenings. Try Villa del Sueno for the music on Fridays, and Ginger's for tapas! All in all a wonderful vacation in a wonderful location!

Vacances du 1 au 22 février 2017

  • 4 of 5

Nous étions un groupe de 7, l'espace était parfait , il y avait de la place pour ne pas se piler sur les pieds, l'emplacement superbe, c'était bien entretenu... malgré un petit problème d'air conditionné qui dégageais parfois un odeur désagréable.. un peu d'aération et le tour est jouer, il y avait également le débit d'eau dans les douches qui n'était pas trop fort mais on s'en sortais. Sinon c'etait le paradis.

Le concierge Fraser nous a tres bien accueillis et a répondu à nos demandes tout au long de notre séjour.

Je recommanderais cet endroit n'importe quand ,c'est sécuritaire, bien situer.. 15 minutes de marche pour la plage en pente descendante,, on ne l'as pas fait pour remonter :-) belle plage avec quelques bons petit Resto, épicerie à proximité. Je recommande une voiture si vous voulez visiter et vous rendre aux autres plages,boutiques et autres.
