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.

Carlos and NICOLLE made the stay at their villa a 10 star. They were able to answer every question we had,direct and guide on what to do and what company to do it with,transportation to the places we wanted to visit. W e could not have asked for anything more.

In addition to that the villa was perfect with the pool and we were a step away from the beach. I would recommend it to any and everyone. We had 17 people that travel with us and we would all do it again .

What isnt there to like. The home is beautiful as well as large enough to support very large groups. The only rooms to the house are bedrooms, everything else is outdoors. The beach front is incredible. There are a few good restaurants within walking distance. Jaco is only 5 minutes away and the Chef connection was even our cab service.

As advertised and above all expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

Flawless booking thru VRBO and Nicole and Carlos (owners) communicated flawlessly. Casa Mia took care of my party of 13 better than ever expected. Beautiful home and location. Air conditioning was cold for evening sleep but all other time was spent outdoors at this wonderful property. We used chef Eric 4 of our 7 days at property and his food is outstanding. Chef Eric also has a large clean van and took my family into Jaco for an awesome evening out. Eric knows different restaurant owners in area and would call ahead for us. Eric made us feel special. Housekeeping is above and beyond and Carlos (owner) was always availabe for questions about excursions etc.

We felt super safe in Playa Hermosa and locals are friendly and helpful. Carlos booked us on a private boat to Tortuga Island for less than a tour company charges. We felt special in every aspect of staying at Casa Mia!!

There are several restaurants and a small carry out walking distance from Casa Mia.

If you are looking to relax and be taken care of this is the place to stay. We stayed at Westin Playa Conchal in 2016 and this property exceeded it in every way!! Thank you Casa Mia!!

AWSOME place to stay with great views and people!

  • 5 of 5

I will start off by saying that we were a little concerned about what the place would really look like when we arrived. It was exactly as the pictures! BEAUTIFUL! Carlos was there to welcome us and give us the run down of the house. Anytime we needed (or didn't know we wanted ) something he was there to help. He set up several day trips for us, all of our transportation and a masseuse! The Ziplines were great and everyone there were very fun. The lunch was more then expected with beautiful grounds. The trip to Manuel Antonio was beautiful. The beach and lunch stop were perfect. Chef Erick cooked great meals for us back at the house and showed us some of the local foods. I would recommend using his services! He will make what ever you want. The local store has most everything you would need but if you are doing your own meals I would suggest a trip to the local supermarket. Prices for both food and beverages are about the same as in the USA so don't worry about being able to find what you need. The local bars and restaurants are great and a super short walk. We had some wonderful meals and they are very reasonably priced. I would recommend trying them all at some point. The whole area felt very secure. Never once did we feel concerned. The grounds are very nice and we spent several days hanging buy the pool and lounging in the private kitchen/outdoor area. We could have not found a better place to spend a week!! Thank you to Carlos and Nichole for ALL of their help!! You have a wonderful place for groups to come and see how wonderful of a country Costa Rica is!

Amazing time for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

I won't be able to say all I would like to say about Casa Mia!! We had a large family gathering and this home was more than perfect for us. The 8 bedrooms with on suite bathrooms, was perfect for our group. Nicole was very helpful in the beginning with the decision to choose Casa Mia, and then Carlos was there for us after we arrived at the home. He was extremely helpful with transportation, tours, reservations and general information. Even offered up rides when he was making a trip to Jaco. The included house keeper was very nice, although she didn't speak much English, we could always get across what we wanted. And the yard man was up early every morning cleaning up and getting the pool, patio and yard ready for us to enjoy each day. We hired Erick to cook for us most every night. This was amazing as we didn't have to go out to dinner. Once dinner was done, we were home and the kids could jump right back in the pool. He was also very helpful with reservations and information. The dinners were family style and he would cook whatever we wanted. There are also good restaurants/bars very close by. Loved that the home is right on the beach! The black sand gets very hot mid-day! The beach in Jaco was better for the kids playing in the water, but we spent a lot of time right at the home. We were NOT ready to leave Casa Mia and hope we can go back again soon! I would highly recommend Casa Mia for your group vacation. I have told everyone who will listen, that this was my most favorite vacation I have ever taken! (And I have taken quite a few) If you are looking for a private home, with a pool, on a quite beach, with wonderful owners and staff, large enough to accommodate your group, look no further!
