Beautiful property in Playa Hermosa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in Casa Williams in Playa Hermosa and it was paradise. Views are incredible from both masters and the deck and the pool was wonderful. The house had everything we needed for our stay and had plenty of room for the 4 adults and 4 children we had. The house was clean and the beds were very comfortable. It is possible to walk to Playa Hermosa but the road is steep so we had a car to make the trips quick and easy it also helped to have a car to do day trips since everything is 30 min to 1h30min away. Cleaners came in the middle of the trip which was a nice as well. Highly recommend this property!

Beautiful home! Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5


The property is beautiful and the views, spectacular. We have not completed our stay, but already feel completely relaxed. We have never rented a home in a sun destination, and at times find ourselves extremely isolated here, but that can also be a good thing. We just need to learn to relax more!

Car rental is a must, with a confident driver to maneuver these hills. Playa Hermosa beach is a 5-10 minute drive, and the beach is okay (nice, but not the best beach I’ve ever seen), and there is no shade. We will try another beach later this week. The kitchen is well equipped, just missing a kettle. The bedrooms are comfortable., as are the bathrooms, with plenty of bath linens. There could be more seats around the tv, but we aren’t really spending much time around the tv anyway! The deck and pool are gorgeous, and shaded for the morning and part of the afternoon. Then it gets super hot! Could use another couple loungers as there are six of us and only 4 loungers.

Lastly, the weather here has been perfect, Corby has been excellent at managing our stay, and Josh at Tico tours helped us plan a perfect excursion (Palo Verde).

All in all, would definitely recommend for a relaxing, beautiful home to rent in peaceful paradise.

Beautiful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Casa Williams is perched high on a hill above the the town of Playa Hermosa with a stunning view of the Pacific Ocean. Our family of seven watched magnificent sunsets through the floor to ceiling glass doors, ate lunch on the spacious stone deck, and took nighttime swims in the colored lights of the infinity pool. The house is clean, spacious, comfortable and beautiful, with stone tiles throughout. The mountainside is peaceful and filled with flowers, colorful birds and butterflies. The house is convenient to the Liberia airport (1/2 hr drive), and is convenient for day trips to Rincon National park and zip line tours. The rental agent, Corby, responded quickly to our inquiry emails, and she met us at the property to give us the keys and helpful information. This is a beautiful vacation home.

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.
