Private villa and pool in a gated resort - fantastic ocean view!
average rating of 4.4 based on 5 reviews

great home!

  • 4 of 5

Jonathon's home was a beautiful home that was the perfect size for me and my 4 friends. The pool was great, the rooms were cute, and everything was easy to find. The closet size was perfect and there were hangers there to hang our stuff up on which was nice after being in luggage. The only thing, luckily we are smaller girls because the beds were only full size beds so if people are sharing beds that may be a little bigger they may be a little cramped. We also had wished the grill was working. There was a note left that it had been fixed, but it had not been. Have fun and enjoy your stay!

The perfect vacation spot for travelers!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful villa in a safe gated community! Playa Hermosa location is perfect for going back and forth to Playa Coco (nightlife) and all of the amazing beaches both onsite and nearby. My husband and I travel extensively and have stayed in every kind of locale and accommodation. Jon and Michelle's villa is perfect for the "traveler" interested in integrating into the Costa Rican lifestyle. The dip pool was enjoyed daily as a "Happy hour" debrief after sightseeing all morning ( we would regularly rush to get back for 3:00 pm). The villa contains all of the needed items to enjoy your stay. Groceries are easily obtained nearby and many fantastic restaurants to be enjoyed within 10 min away if you choose not to stay in! The local beach is clean and usually uncrowded, very easily accessed by the shuttle onsite. The property manager Amy is fantastic at arranging interesting tours such as a jaunt to Nicaragua... A MUST.. well worth it! We plan to go back soon. Thanks again Jon and Michelle!!

Had a Great time

  • 4 of 5

We (2 couples) stayed here for 2 weeks at the end of February and early March. While we have been to quite a few places, this was our first visit to Costa Rica and we were a bit unsure of what to expect. I have to say I was more than pleasantly surprised and it is now one of my favorite places to go. The villa was great, clean and comfortable with lots of dishes etc and a fantastic view from the pool on the deck. The owners were very easy to deal with and have a good package of information for you to get yourself acquainted with the villa and area in general. The beach was fantastic, busy enough so you didn't feel alone, but not at all crowded and lots of good food and drink right there. The shuttle to the beach ran about every 5-10 minutes and was really convenient. We took several tours with the property manager (Amy from Avipas Tours) and would highly recommend them. I would really recommend this villa and the country in general. We can’t wait to go back. Thanks!

Very clean resort, thankful that there is a shuttle running all the time as this resort is very hilly and curvy, a couple of steps out the door and the shuttle is minutes away and it also takes you down to the beach and back up to the villa about every 15 minutes. The villa is a WOW factor! The pool is so awesome to have right there on the balcony, we used it more than the resort pool area! If you like to do some of your own cooking then the kitchen here is perfect, everything one needs is there, and i would rather this type of villa than to do an all inclusive. The property manager met us at the airport and explained all we needed to know. We contacted her for excursions and were not disappointed at all! We were a 10 min cab ride to Coco where we enjoyed shopping and open air bars with good food and drinks...I would highly recommend this villa, as long as I can still get my spot next winter...a little humor!!! Costa Rica is wonderful and the location of the villa is great!!

About Jonathan Ceaser

Calgary businessman. I fell in love with Costa Rica 8 years ago on a business trip. I have been back almost every year since.

Jonathan Ceaser purchased this villa in 2009

Why Jonathan Ceaser chose Playa Hermosa

I purchased this villas for its incredible view and so my family always has somewhere in paradise to call home.

What makes this villa unique

There`s nothing better than a cold cerveza or pina colada on the deck or in the pool watching the sunset! Take a snooze in the hammock or catch some Vitamin D on the sun deck.
