Great property... TERRIBLE, LOUD construction

  • 2 of 5

Picture a fresh cup of Costa Rican brewed coffee, a tropical breeze running over the infinity pool, a view of the Pacific... and a loud steel saw buzzing so loudly that you can't sit outside - -all day long. While we loved the property, we were honestly very upset about the lack of transparency by the owner about the impact the construction would have on our stay. When you pay that much for a property, full disclosure should be a offered.

Corby, the property manager, tried to warn us, but the owner maintained that the construction would not affect our experience. We believed her, and were very sorry we did not cancel and change our accommodations. There are so many places to choose from, so learn from us and if there is construction going on, DO NOT STAY HERE. We had only a half an hour every day where construction wasn't happening (mon.-sat.).

The owner gave a 10% discount for our inconvenience but in our opinion, it was a token gesture and did not make up for the fact that we couldn't even sit outside on the patio because of the noise our entire vacation. Corby (the property manager) can help you find another property if you want a VRBO, as she has several properties she rents in that area. Playa Hermosa is wonderful and we would highly recommend this area.

It looks like construction will be happening another 8-10 months and possibly on another property above the house after that. Heads up!!!

As far as the house goes, it is perched up on a hill and has a gorgeous view. We had 10 people and it fit us all comfortably.

A few things to note about the house:

*the driveway to the house is extremely steep

*there is no shower in the 2nd master (just a bath - which we found strange and didn't like at all)

*the jacuzzi is not a hot tub. It is the same temp as the pool.

We love Costa Rica and will definitely be back, but will be more savvy about asking questions next time. Hope you learn from our mistake!

Casa Williams is "almost Heaven". From the time we pulled into the driveway, past the jacuzzi and the infinity pool and onto the patio, we were in awe of the magnificent view of the ocean and hillside. Once inside, we were mesmerized by the beautiful decor, artwork and amenities. We are spending most of our time on the patio enjoying the pool and watching the sun set and rise. This is the best place we could have chosen to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We are definitely coming back and telling our family and friends about our time here in Costa Rica.

Casa Wow!

  • 5 of 5

From indoors or out, the vantage casts mesmerizing views of Playa Hermosa, the rugged coastline, and surrounding hills. The house's design capitalizes on the vista, with the full-height windows and sliding glass doors, a broad shaded patio, and infinity pool, where we enjoyed much of our time. Adjoining the pool on one side is a jacuzzi and on the other, a lower-level splash deck. This spacious property is well maintained with high-end furnishings, fixtures, and amenities. The early riser is greeted with jungle sounds from the variety of birds. At the time of this review, there is nearby construction that starts after 8 AM; however, I do not find it objectionable. Playa Hermosa is less than 1/2 hour from Liberia airport and convenient to national parks and other beaches and attractions.

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Amazing views and great amenities makes Casa Williams a great vacation spot. The experience- from early contact with Rosalyn and the attention received from Corby, including having the fridge stocked for Christmas Eve- has been exceptional. That has made our family vacation even more memorable.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Williams is the best place this side of heaven. Corby the manager is very efficient and great. The home's spectacular view is amazing. The room's designs are pleasing and restorative. The patio offers so much in relaxation and recreation. Casa Williams is by far my best place to stay. I will be back!!

AMAZING in every way!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Corby was so professional and easy to communicate with from the very first inquiry. She even supplied the house with groceries upon our request for a small fee (this was so appreciated!). Secondly, when we walked into this home we knew we had chosen correctly. The pictures on the website do not even do it justice! The house was spotless, the layout was perfect for our family of 8, the kitchen was well-equipped, showers were truly wonderful, the furniture and beds were sooooo comfy, and THE VIEW....the view was the most beautiful we have ever seen!! Our family has traveled through Asia, Central America, Europe, and North America and we were in complete awe of the beauty of this place. We were not limited by not having a car, however, we all enjoy a good walking challenge; if you do not enjoy walking up very steep hills then you should probably rent a car. We walked to the beach, restaurants, and the grocery store daily. We also booked several tours through Tico Tours and they picked us up at Casa Williams and even offered to make various stops on the way back to Casa Williams for souvenirs or groceries.

You will not be disappointed for choosing Casa Williams...we are telling everyone we know about this place and already planning our trip back!!!
