Spacious home with spectacular view and a great private pool

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five and this home is perfect for us. The house is very spacious and clean. The pool is a good size for a private home. Plenty of room for us and our children who are 10, 12, and 15. The view is amazing as the house is located on the hillside. You will more than likely need a vehicle to head to the beach as it is a steep walk back. The kitchen is very good size and there is an outdoor grill and dining table which we put to good use. The home is very private. We enjoyed watching a family of howler monkeys in a tree about 40 yards from our pool.

Very Spacious Home

  • 5 of 5

Casa Harvard is located in a very convenient area in Hermosa. The house is very well laid out and comfortable, we were a family of 5. The kitchen is well equipped which is important to us, we like to cook our meals. We rented a car and were able to drive to several beaches. There is a common pool with slides and mini golf in the complex that we also enjoyed. The outdoor area with the infinity pool is were we spent most afternoons.

This house has all the amenities you need for an amazing vacation.

Fabulous Property !

  • 5 of 5

A friend mine had stayed at the Harvard House last December and talked about this beautiful home. Even her wonderful accolades did not adequately describe the beauty of this home and the breathtaking setting. All the rooms are very large, nicely decorated and the kitchen has everything you would need to cook there daily if you so desired. Although, we did not use it, there is a large grill on the patio and the laundry room is enormous ! The infinity pool is the crown jewel of this property ! It was heavenly to wake in the morning and go for an early swim and just gaze upon the magnificent view. And the lights on the pool at night while sitting around enjoying a glass of wine, gives you a renewed appreciation for the beauty of nature. There is a nice bar and restaurant at the bottom of the hill at Hermosa Heights and other excellent eating establishments in the neighborhood. I would wholeheartedly recommend this property !

Owner's Response: It is always wonderful to hear that expectations were met and even surpassed. I hope that "the ladies" will come back to CR soon and maybe even stay longer!

Pool and View Exceptional

Beautiful, cool, private and comfortable. Beds were better than my beds at home! Patio and grill even made staying in at night a delight. Highly recommend.

Great house / location breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

We booked another house, but due to construction going on next door, we had to move to this house. We’d seen this house on the website, but what a pleasant surprise! The pics on the website absolutely don’t do the house justice. It is located high on the hills of "Hermosa Heights" and it gives you amazing views over the bay of Playa Hermosa from the porch, pool and even every single room in the house! Important for future bookers, the pics on website show closed curtains, but if you open them you have the most amazing ocean view! While chilling in the infinity pool, we even saw 2 Humpback whales in the bay. Because of the location, the house is very private and we could even swim in less than our swimsuit! The infinity pool is big, approximately 40ft, and well maintained. The house is very well equipped and, besides an electric kettle, there was nothing we missed. Hermosa Heights is safe and has guards, but we felt extra secure because of the high-end alarm system and steel gate at the entrance door.

The caretakers, Bahia Culebra, are professional and very helpful. They arranged the move to this house, directly when we asked for it. Chapeau! Also, the fridge broke down, and the same day a technician came by to fix the problem. All and all we had a very positive experience with both house and caretakers. We will definitively come back here!

Elaine O and family

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home with amazing views. The location was great .. Close to to beaches, shopping, restaurants. My family said this is one of the best vacations they have had. They are already asking when we can return. The house is very,very nice with a great pool and a nicely stocked kitchen. The community pool, movie theatre, basketball court was a definite plus for those who travel with children. The view is just breathtaking, it really made me sit back and realize how fortunate and grateful we are to be able to take a vacation at this villa!! We would love to come back and stay at this home again. Thank you so much for a vacation full of wonderful memories!!

Missing that view......
