About Nicole Vincent

We are a family of 5, Nicole and Carlos, and 3 girls. We love surfing and life at the beach so divide our time between San Jose and Playa Hermosa. We have an onsite manager, Diane, that will welcome you and help with any arrangements.

Nicole Vincent purchased this villa in 2011

Why Nicole Vincent chose Puntarenas

We love Playa Hermosa and have a property close by on the mountain. We've been coming here to vacation for the past 10 years and buying Casa Mia and remodeling the hotel has been a project we've enjoyed with all our heart.

What makes this villa unique

Taking walks on the black sand beach, the surfing, the magnificent sunsets, are a few of my favorite things about living here. From the deck chairs surrounding the pool or cooking in the outdoor kitchen, you can see, feel, and hear the ocean and enjoy the breeze. Our rooms are clean and comfortable but you will prefer to read a book under the sun umbrella with a cool drink in hand.The location is perfect for many different day trips, such as canopy tours or Manuel Antonio Park, where you can see monkeys and sloths.

A little piece of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Casa Mia has been my favorite getaway by far! It was perfect in every way possible. This was my first time using VRBO and let me just tell you, Nicole, the property owner was so helpful and answered every question I had and as a first timer I had several questions. My group consisted of 11 people, which was a pretty large group and everyone is still raving about what an amazing time they had. Waking up every morning to the sound of the waves was just one of the many great things that Casa Mia had to offer. This house was so clean and well kept, a housekeeper named Shirley came every day and cleaned each room and bathroom. The outdoor kitchen was one of the best features this house had to offer, that is where we spent most of our time and the private pool was another great feature as well.While staying here, there was a man named Mariano, he is the caretaker of Casa Mia. He was so helpful and answered any questions we had. Not only did he take great care of us but he even climbed up the palm trees and brought us Coconuts, not a very easy task to do, he did this each morning for 11 guests. We even had a Private chef that came out and cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner. Nicole recommended Chef Erick to us and he was incredible. He went out of his way to accommodate all of us, we had a Birthday in the group, he went all out for her special day by having a birthday cake delivered and built a bonfire by the ocean and sang Happy Birthday. I cannot rave enough about Chef Erick, he is a MUST if you stay at Casa Mia. This house is special and perfect in every way, the pictures don't do it justice, you have to experience it yourself. We are already planning for next years trip to Costa Rica and staying at Casa Mia :) Thank you Nicole, Carlos, Chef Erick, Mariano and Shirley for the unforgettable experience at Casa Mia!

Unbelievable experience

  • 5 of 5

Casa Mia was the most perfect getaway. Rented the whole place with a group of 11 friends. From the view to the best outdoor kitchen ever casa mia made our first Costa Rican adventure unforgettable. Diane took the best care of us and even ordered us pizza on several occasions. The staff is very friendly and keeps the place nice and clean. Feels like a secret getaway but only a few minutes drive to downtown Jaco. Would recommend and definitely stay here again!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 10 days at Casa Mia. We booked this villa for our wedding party and it worked out perfectly. There are a few things that made this place perfect for us. First the outdoor patio and kitchen. Being able to be outside and cook and eat was awesome. Also this time of year there is rain so this area allowed us to be outside but out of the rain. We loved being at the big table and watching the torrential downpours. The other thing that we really appreciated was having Diane the caretaker on site. She was a wealth of knowledge and helped us with excursions, making reservations, getting cabs etc. She really was very helpful. We all enjoyed having her chef friend come and cook for all of us on the patio which was a fun break from going into town. The one thing that we wished was better was the wifi in the rooms. I like to read and catch up on emails at night in bed and was unable to do that as there is only wifi on the patio. Other than that small issue, I would absolutely recommend this property.

Perfect for a group getaway!

  • 5 of 5

After working 8 days on a Mission Trip in San Pedro our group of 11 migrated to Casa Mia for some R&R. What a beautiful location right off the beach.....the outdoor kitchen off the pool was the best! Everything was clean, new and well kept. Bars and restaurants within walking distance and Diana was eager to assist us with any needs We look forward to our return!

Perfect for Family!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned to Alberta, Canada from a wonderful 2 weeks Christmas Vacation at Casa Mia! Casa Mia was the perfect choice for our family of 15, the pool and ocean provided hours of entertainment for our children and adults alike. Diane was amazing in making sure we had all the comforts of home in addition to organizing our excursions! All rooms and grounds were very clean and comfortable, the kitchen was perfect for making breakfast/lunches. CASA MIA is highly recommended to all that would love the comforts of home and lots of relaxation!! THANK YOU Diane and Casa Mia :)

Great place to go with friends

  • 5 of 5

Private and quiet place where you can enjoy your favourite drinks with amazing sunsets. There are restaurants and bars walking distance and Jaco is just around 10 mins by car. You definitely have to go if you want to privately enjoy with your friends a relaxed weekend.
