Experience Costa Rica at this stunning villa.
We live in the mountains of Colorado but our heart often wanders to Costa Rica. When we want to get away, Playa Hermosa has been the perfect spot every time! Quite, happy, easy living!
Chris purchased this Villa in 2016
Why Chris chose Papagayo
Why this property? Why not this property! Great location and amenities on a beautiful beach with the right amount of activity to keep life interesting. You might get into a deep sea fishing excursion, a cruise on the monkey trail, a bonfire on the beach, or massage by Thailen on the beach! We can't wait for our next trip, and now we can't wait to share this with you!

Wished we could have stayed longer
Check-in was super easy and location was central for us. Pamela was very easy to get in contact with and allows us to check in an hour early since condo was clean and ready. We had a rental car and explored other beaches to include Playa Hermosa. Supermarket was a three minute drive which was great for us since we used the kitchen to cook. They have a propane grill also which was great for our burgers and grilled snapper. Kitchen has EVERYTHING! They even had two coolers to take lunch and drinks to the beach. Loved the outdoor table and chairs and that’s were we hung out most of the time for dinner and cards with the kids. Pictures are accurate and really do not show how open and bright the floor plan really is. Beds are super comfy, plenty of extra linens, air conditioning does not take long to cool when you arrive to turn on; WiFi worked great, cable was a treat for my boys in the evening and we even found channels in English. Beware of the raccoons at night. We’re animal lovers and live in the country so not scared of them but make sure you lock the sliding patio door. We were warned at check in and one of our sons left the door unlocked. We returned to the door open and a momma and her two babies inside helping themselves to snacks on the table....we were more startled than them. You do have access to the resort and the all-inclusive option for $65 adult$35 child but changed our mind when we got there. Food was nothing spectacular and drinks were all local liquors. Access to the main pool and restaurant is a long walk up the hill so you want to take the shuttle. One disappointment was the resort activity area that was an attractive amenity for our kids. It closes early on Mondays and Tuesdays and is supposed to reopen in the late evening on Wednesday - Sunday’s and that didn’t happen. The resort locks the ping pong paddles and balls to the table and foos ball. Maybe have a set kept at the house with all the games to use and return would be nice.
Thanks again for sharing your home with us and making our family vacation one of the best!!
Villa was great!
First time in this area of Costa Rica and we were not disappointed. Chris was supper responsive. The villa was perfect. Bill was a perfect guide and Bryan was a perfect host on site for our excursions from ATVing to fishing. We had a little bit of rain but that didn’t stop of from Hermosa beach and Coco beach. The restaurant on Hermosa beach was amazing. I can’t belive it’s time for us to leave! Everything you need in the villa if you want to stay in and cook and grill which we did as well. We will be back. Thank you everyone!! Carrie and Jerrod
Carrie, you guys were so easy to accommodate. we would love to have you back at our little slice of paradie! safe travels to you and Jerrod.
Great locaton, nice space
We had a nice stay at the villa. It has a good location and is easy to make day trips without too much long driving. Despite the raccoon letting himself in one nite for dinner (we got home in time to shoo him out) everything turned out fine. Hope the lock has been fixed!
It was exactly as advertised
Overall wonderful location, close to CoCoa bech, clean and close to all amenities. 2 thumbs up.
Great central location to explore neighboring towns and national parks
Great beach for swimming, very well equipped suite and super comfy master bed. Would recommend this suite to those with families and those looking for a quieter holiday
