Beautiful home with awesome views!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for 4 nights in January 2018. The home is absolutely gorgeous, spacious, and views to die for. Close to lots of things, but you do need a car (which we knew in advance). Edgar (property manager) was a great help and provided lots of information on surrounding activities. Onsite movie theater was easy entertainment one night. We had one small glitch with an a/c unit, but Edgar promptly took care of it. Only item we weren't aware of, is the pool gets little sun, and only in mid afternoon (at least in January). When it's 90 degrees out, the pool was "refreshing", but you need to be tolerable of chilly water. The built in Jacuzzi is NOT heated and gets no sun. That was unfortunate, as it was useless and really could be heated, even it requiring an additional fee. Would have been well worth it. But otherwise, the stay was awesome.

Amazing view, clean, helpful management group

  • 5 of 5

I'd definitely stay at this home again because of the views, the pool and comfortable bedrooms. It's a very nice home and the location is terrific. The grocery stores nearby have everything you need to cook for your family in this large kitchen. We were lucky to see some spectacular lightening and monsoon like rain in the evenings. The Zindis group staff were very kind, informative and helpful which made this stay especially welcoming. Thank you!

Stress Free Stay!!

  • 4 of 5

No worries when it comes to this house! (it is a house, not a villa) We were three couples that stayed for 6 nights. The view, the private pool, the gated community, the service from Edgar, the price are all hard to beat! The house has plenty of room, it is clean and very private. There were no problems with the Wi-Fi or any other amenity of the house. We also used the chef that Edgar recommended. The meal and the price were wonderful! Highly recommend doing it at least one night.

The walk to the beach is not a short walk, but it is fine. The beach is very quite and clean. If you have a car or if you are in good shape, you need to take the paved road to the top of the hill/development and watch the sunset from the very top undeveloped lot. The view is amazing! We took wine and enjoyed it every night.

We would not hesitate to stay here again. The highlights of the house are without question the view, the infinity pool and the covered deck that has a nice area to get some sun. Book it, you will not regret it!

Great Place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for a week with our 5 children and babysitter and loved it! You can't beat the view and it's a quiet community. There was plenty of room, linens, and towels for everyone. Very clean and there was a cleaning lady who came twice during our week stay. The pool is a great size and one of the bigger pools in the community. It was nice to hang out on the large deck that was covered so we weren't always in the sun.

We did have an issue with a toilet the first night we arrived but with one phone call someone came to fix it within 15 minutes. If we had any issues the office was just down the hill and could answer any questions and were very helpful. The grocery store is about a 10 minute walk and you can get most basics there. There is also a movie theater and the Sandbar restaurant just right outside the community at the bottom of the hill (5 minute walk). One thing we didn't try that was part of the community, was the large community pool with water slides.

If you are planning on walking to the beach, it is a little more than a mile away - it took us 20 minutes to walk with our kids and you just walk on the side of the road. If you have a car there is a good size carport and the distance wouldn't be a problem.

While we stayed here, we used Tico Tours who picked us up from the airport and took us on a few tours. They were so friendly and fantastic tours. If you are going zip lining while staying, I'd recommend Witch's Rock- about a 30 minute drive.

EXCELLENT VILLA

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 to include one senior spent one week at this villa. It was neat, very clean and we had a wonderful time. The view is amazing. It has a huge covered patio - so you can sit out there dawn to dusk and enjoy even when it is hot. The house is absolutely senior friendly with no stairs. There were a couple of issues that needed attending to, but the manager was prompt and got on them immediately. I would definately stay there again. The only minor thing is: if you are sun worshipers and like to lay out in the sun - there is only a tiny area for 3 lounge chairs squeezed together for this - because of the huge covered patio. But we found 3 pool lounge chairs inside - so we floated around the pool and got lots of sun!! Had a great time, would definately go back and stay there!!

Playa Hermosa
Car: recommended

Explored by horseback, foot, kayak or SUP, all trails lead to waterfalls, misty crater lakes or jungle-fringed, deserted beaches… Try zip lining, canopy tours, hiking, and surfing. Costa Rica’s adventures are all top notch and are all waiting for you.

 

Playa Hermosa, Playa Panama, And Playas Del Coco are great places to be based out of. Playa Hermosa has one of the safest and calmest beaches in Costa Rica.  In these beach towns, you will find and ample amount of restaurants and sodas plus grocery store’s and a few pharmacies. A soda is a small Costa Rican  family run  restaurant with fresh  home cooked food at reasonable prices.

South of Playas Del Coco there are some wonderful beaches to explore for day trips. Playa Conchal, Playa Flamingo, Playa Portrero, and Playa Dante are favorites. Tamarindo and Playa Grand are about 1.5 hours south. These two beaches are wonderful for surfing.

A bit further afield is the Arenal La Fortuna area. It is about a three hour drive Playa Hermosa. At 5,437 feet, the Arenal Volcano looms large and ominous over the pastured green hillsides that surround its base. Although currently in a resting phase, Arenal remained the country’s most active volcano for the past 43 years.

Simply put, Arenal is striking. It is a picture-perfect volcano which dominates the horizon, while rivers and waterfalls tumble through the rainforest that spreads across its base. To the south, the massive Lake Arenal stands sentry to the Tilarán Mountain Range, whose jagged green spine extends along Costa Rica’s central highlands.

From Arenal you can travel to the cloud forest of Monteverde – a nature lover's paradise. The town of Monteverde is fairly small with shopping and some great restaurants Enjoy a nature hike in the Santa Elena Cloud Forest Reserve then opt to visit a butterfly garden, zipline through the canopy, or go horseback riding.

Take advantage from our local concierge’s knowledge of the country and come soak up the sun. What are you waiting for?
