Great veiw

  • 5 of 5

The view from the house is spectacular! House is very clean & comfortable, everything just as Corby described.Take Corbys advice & ck w/ her before renting a car- you will need one. The pool is breathtaking @ sundown!!! We enjoyed our road trip to Lake Arenal & seeing the Volcana- luck was w/ us & we got to see the very top.Our advice is to put the pedal to the medal--for a beautiful view from the top. Welcome to Costa RICA!!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

We are always a little nervous renting on vrbo because you always worry that it won't live up to your expectations or that the pictures aren't accurate (and in the case of this house I was a little worried that there were relatively few reviews posted). This home lived up to everything described AND the pictures don't really do it justice at all--it's fantastic! We are a family of 6 and are staying at Casa Havard for 3 weeks. The home is spacious, well appointed (we are cooking almost every night), with a layout that is perfect for our group. It's spacious and we don't feel cramped in the least. The views are absolutely amazing--getting up and drinking coffee on the patio and looking at the ocean is heaven.

Pool is great, there is plenty of seating (both lounge and dining), and did I mention the view because it's worth mentioning over and over! You just can't get a better view.

Playa Hermosa is a great beach for kids--the waves are small and the beach open and not very busy (at least in June). Our youngest is only 6 years old so finding a beach that is safe was important and we've been to enough beaches in Costa Rica to know that many of them are just not kid friendly. There is a great little grocery store just down the road which we initially wrote off as "probably" not having enough so we went on to Playa Coco to grocery shop, only to find that our local grocery store was actually really well equipped and had great prices (not to mention the obvious convenience). You can walk to it from the house...the hill is super steep coming back, but it's a great workout and distance-wise, not very far!

Getting to the house was easy, and Corby was great in getting us settled, and doing initial grocery shopping for us so that the kids had breakfast in the morning (and we had coffee). Traffic was especially bad and they were very accommodating to our changing time and were helpful in every way!

If you've found this house on VRBO, count yourself lucky, it's a gem!

Luxury Home with Breathtaking Ocean Views

  • 5 of 5

We have really enjoyed our stay at Casa Havard. The views from the house and private infinity pool are spectacular. The master bedrooms is huge and luxurious with a private balcony with panoramic views. Our family has really enjoyed the infinity pool and relaxing on the outdoor patio. The community swimming pool with water slide has also been a lot of fun.

The large kitchen is well stocked and has all the appliances you will need. We have have loved our stay in Casa Harvard and Playa Hermosa and will definitely stay here again.

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!
