About Leticia Cespedes

Hola!! My name is Leticia Cespedes and I own Las Brisas Villa #2 in the village of Playa Hermosa. I grew up most of my life living in the Los Angeles County. I have two adult daughters and one granddaughter. I've been married for 40 years to my loving Costa Rican husband. We both work in Real Estate and currently are semi-retired. We visit several times a year to visit family, friends and of course Playa Hermosa for relaxation. I hope you are able to enjoy this lay back friendly beach town and the beach with many activities to do as much as I have over 20 years. Also, please contact me I like to give discounts to my guests!

Leticia Cespedes purchased this villa in 2011

Why Leticia Cespedes chose Playa Hermosa

My husband and I have been visiting this area of Guanacaste for over 20 years with family and friends. The reasons we purchased this vacation home in December 2011 are for the conveniences of home, peacefulness and relaxation. Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste has soft waves, warm weather and beautiful sunsets. Aside being a sleepy beach town you can still find good restaurants, bars and nice people. On the beach there are so many activities to keep you busy and have lots of fun.

What makes this villa unique

The unique benefits that you will find is the one minute walk to the beach, the ocean view from the balcony, the saltwater pool, 24/7 security and the complimentary use of the amenities at the Condovac Resort next door.

Pura Vida!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful condo. Lots of windows, clean inside and out. Took full advantage of amenities at Condovac next door. Roberto's right across the street serves killer seafood and so much. Leticia was very attentive as was Candida and the guards were very pleasant. More than enough room for my family of 7. Great stay and we will be back. Pura Vida!

Nice property with some maintenance issues

  • 3 of 5

The pros of our stay at Playa Hermosa vacation home:

The home is very spacious and very convenient to Hermosa Beach. It was clean and well stocked. The condo community it is located in was gated with 24 hour security. Costa Rica is beautiful with LOTS to do. WIfi was great in the condo. The grocery store was convenient and restaurants around the area very good.

The cons of out stay at Playa Hermosa vacation home:

When we arrived there was no one there to let us in and show us around. We were informed that we would not be allowed to check in without signing documents and getting information from "Concita". The keys were left with the Guards at the gate and they did not speak English. The door lock did not work to the main door (sliding glass door) or upstairs sliding glass door. The second bathroom shower did not work. It only dripped. There was a kitchen cabinet that was not attached to the wall and dangerously sitting beside the sink. My son almost fell to the ground when leaning on it. We brought all of these issues to the attention of the owner and attempted to find someone associated with the condo community. We heard back from no one for 4 days. The day before we left, they attempted to fix the lock and attached the cabinet. The shower was never fixed. The lock still did not work, nor did the safe that we tried to use. We were told the safe did not work for a while. The AC unit in the kitchen did not work either.

The resort that is available for use was difficult to find on our own. It is up the hill to the left, taking a shuttle. When walking there through the gates at the back of the condo, no one knew where to send us to get wristbands or that the condo was at all associated with the resort.

We rented a car (highly recommended) and discovered SO many beautiful beaches and areas outside of Hermosa Beach. I would certainly visit Costa Rica again and imagine that because it was off season, the condo was not as well maintained and staff was not available.

Owner's Response: Dear Heather, I'm happy to hear that you found Las Brisas Villa #2 to be spacious, convenient and well stocked. Although I'm sorry to hear you had difficulties not locating the property manager. I did speak with the property manager and she did mentioned she had an emergency and was at the hospital. But she did leave the keys with her helper and instructed her to hand over the keys to you. You did mentioned this to me in an email. On my Rental Agreement w/ Directions & Instructions that I give to all my Guests contains contact emails and telephone numbers with the property managers included. It states for the Guests to make a copy of the contract and to bring it along with them to Costa Rica as reference. It also includes on where and how to have access to the Condovac Resort next door. I have notified the property manager of the repairs and they are being repaired as of now. Thank you for your review as it will help me improve my place.

Great Location and Quiet!

  • 5 of 5

This property was clean, beautifully landscaped outside, and perfectly located. Indeed, it looked nicer than the pictures reflect. We debated renting other units with somewhat better views, though were very happy we didn’t have the steep hills to climb. From our patio/balcony you could hear monkeys as well as the ocean waves hitting the beach, which was about a one minute walk away. We also enjoyed having access to the amenities at the adjacent Condovac Resort. It gave our two college age children and their friends someplace to go, though we also enjoyed the adjacent complex swimming pool. Had some initial concern that one of the side sliding glass doors wouldn’t lock, though other owners I met at the pool indicated that was common for the complex. The fenced and gated nature of the property, with 24-hour security guard, allayed my concerns. Other than the hallway bathroom showerhead giving the kids some issues, everything else about the unit was great, including having wi-fi. As other reviewers have noted, the best seafood we had in Costa Rica was indeed just across the street and on the beach. Yves Malette with Costour provided our transportation needs to and from the airport as well as the Palo Verde Boat Tour, which I would recommend for 1st timers to Costa Rica. Thanks Leticia for all your help. Hope to bring the family back to explore more of Costa Rica.

In regards to the shower head and the side door I have contacted my property manager to have them repaired promptly. Also, I'm glad that you used Yves Malettes' Costour adventure travel company for your transportation & excursion needs. Yves is very responsible and a great guide. Brant, you and your family are always welcome to return to Villa #2.

Impressive

  • 5 of 5

Went for spring break. Very close to the beach. Quiet, safe area with security gate with 24 hour manned security booth. Lots of restaurants within walking distance, but if you want to really explore you should rent a car. There is a small grocery store close to the villas and much larger American style supermarket about 10 km away in Playa Coco. Lots of opportunities for chaperoned tours, they tend to be very expensive in my opinion. Overall excellent place to visit and would definitely go back.

peaceful and beautiful, great staff

This villa was perfect for us. It's a beautiful, safe property with lovely neighbors. It's just steps away from the beach and great restaurants. If we ever make it back, this is where we want to stay.

When you do decide to return, you and your family are always welcome to my place.
