About David Lozano
We visited Costa Rica and fell in love. We decided to construct a villa where our family and friends could visit and also fall in love with the Pura Vida way of life in Costa Rica.
David Lozano purchased this Villa in 2016
Why David Lozano chose Manuel Antonio

There is no question or comparison that popular Manuel Antonio – with a selective eye on Vista Hermosa as your vacation prize – is the clear choice for any serious tropical vacationer. Simply consider how thousands continue to flock to the town’s in-demand beach of Playa Espadilla and its surrounding sands each year. Manuel Antonio is situated on rolling hills, drawing tourists to its breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean, surrounding jungle, and rich pristine beaches. Manuel Antonio has managed to strike a fine balance between development and nature, maintaining plenty of its thick tropical rainforest. Even as a wide variety of tourism-based businesses have sprung up along the jungle forested hills, Manuel Antonio retains its integrity for what matters most to tourists. As you sure to discover here, there is no shortage of beautiful wildlife to take in all around this picturesque town. Manuel Antonio is perched high above the community’s enchanting national park and boasts world-class views and beaches.

Luxury Vacation At Vista Hermosa
All your vacation wishes come true for a Five Star property. The views are breathtaking with a modern and relaxed vibe!
Pampered by Chef Javier with awesome meals, there is no need to eat out, the staff will pamper you daily. Beautiful and comfortable accommodations with ocean and jungle views from each room, enjoyed a sense of complete serenity without any outside annoyances. We enjoyed relaxing by the infinity pool, walking to the private beach and had an awesome massage, also enjoyed the wildlife in the area. I would highly recommend it and can 't wait to go back.
This house could not be more perfect. There was plenty of space for our group of 20. Many of us would go on excursions during the day, which Susan the house consierge helped coordinate. We'd all meet back at the pool and enjoy the amazing views. Chef Javi was incredible and would cook the most amazing meals for us. We also had our wedding reception at the house and it worked perfectly. I would highly highly recommend this house.
Hello, Thank you for your thoughtful review and we were honored to play host for your special day. We especially appreciate your recognition of our team as our goal is to make your vacation extremely special and memorable so you do come back again and again. Congrats on your marriage and we look forward to your return visit - maybe for your 1 year Anniversary? Hope to see you soon.
Everything about Vista Hermosa Estate is wonderful. The staff goes above and beyond, and the chef is fantastic. We had two professional chefs in our group and were impressed with Javier’s skills. The house is immaculate and there is plenty of space for everyone. We had 10 adults and 5 children and it was easy enough to have privacy. The house is amazingly quiet as well, I was worried about the kids waking the other adults up, but when they were in the game room or even a closed bedroom they were not disturbing at all. The views are some of the best in the area. The private trail to the beach is absolutely beautiful, so much wildlife! We saw monkeys every day. The beach itself is a quiet spot with plenty of shade and we all just loved it. A truly fabulous place to have a vacation of a lifetime. You have the opportunity to really relax, even with young kids (our five were ages 4-7). Susan, the concierge will answer any questions you have and arrange any excursions or taxis that you need. If you want to have a vacation that is in a beautiful spot, is relaxing, you eat well, you have the opportunity for adventure, and where you don’t have to worry about a thing, look no further Vista Hermosa Estate is the spot!!!
We love hearing that your family had a great trip and enjoyed everything our villa has to offer from the very start of your trip planning to the very end. From amazing experiences to taking in all the luxury amenities, that is our aim and its always a pleasure to know we succeeded in making your trip a success. Thank you for taking the time to leave this detailed review and we hope to see you again in the future. PURA VIDA
We had a group of 12 people (6 couples) stay here recently and all I can say is that it is an unforgettable place! We highly recommend this home, the staff was amazing (Susan in particular), the food was terrific (Javi is a wonderful chef with lots of food options) and everything from the excursions set up for us to just relaxing was top notch. You will not go wrong here!
Thank you for "amazing stay" review. We are delighted to read your stay was unforgettable. We have an amazing team in place. We all work together to make your stay a memorable experience. We hope you comeback and visit us again.
The ocean view was absolutely stunning and the view of the water, will never get old. All of the Rooms have a balcony with views of the ocean. The rooms are spacious with various amenities. The staff was helpful and friendly. If you do not speak Spanish and they do not speak English Google Translate worked well for us.
Susan, the concierge, did an excellent job..she was timely on everything associated with planning of transportation, activities, spa services, and meals for the first day and breakfast for the first morning. As for the tours, we gave her 4 different excursions the day before the 1st excursion and she booked them all within hours. She also gave us a tour of the house and information on securing the house.
Javier, the Chef..what can i say..the food was Absolutely amazingly good . On the last day Javi out did himself, the Surf and Turf and all of the sides were so delicious. Can't wait to visit Vista Hermosa Estates again.
