About Terrance McDermott
We love to travel, and fell in love with Costa Rica about 12 years ago. We appreciate the variety of environments and regions here, the friendliness of the people, and of course the sun and the warm ocean water. With our house we have tried to capture some of the history of the colonial era with all modern conveniences.
Terrance McDermott purchased this Villa in 2009
Why Terrance McDermott chose Playa Hermosa
This area of Guanacaste was designated by the Costa Rican governement to develop tourism, because of the natural beauty here and the drier, more predictable climate. The small community is focused on livablity while keeping substainablity in the forefront.
What makes this Villa unique
The awesome view and the easy walk to the beach are key, and the house is great for famlies or small groups with common areas for socializing, plus privacy. The house is deorated to reinforce the lively, tropical feeling of Costa Rica, with all of the amenities of home.

We loved it here. Terry and Frazer were great to work with. The hill to get to this beautiful home was a bit of a challenge, so a car is necessary. The pictures are pretty accurate and is a lovely home.
Our family of seven had lots of personal space in the house. The beds are firm, and the house is equipped with what you will need. There is a charcoal bbq, which we really enjoyed. We spent many hours outside around the pool area. It was nice to come home to and cool off.
The location is fantastic. Playa Hermosa is a quiet little town with some really great restaurants. There are a couple of grocery stores with everything you need and if you are in need of an ATM, it is also available. For bigger centers, Playa Coco is 10 minutes away and Liberia is only 30 minutes away.
We loved it here and will for sure be back
So nice having people like Patti and her family stay at my house. They care for it like it was their own.
Hope to see them again.
Great family vacation in Playa Hermosa
We came to Playa Hermosa (Guanacaste) for winter break with 2 adults and 4 teenage girls. This house is ideal for a large family or even 2 small families who want to have some space and privacy. The house is very comfortable and looks exactly like the pictures!
On the main floor, there is a well-stocked kitchen and living room that go out to the patio/pool area (which is very nice!) and have a great view of the ocean. There is also a bedroom, half bath and full bath on the first floor. On the second floor is a master bedroom, queen bedroom and a very nice bedroom with 4 bunk beds. The bunk room is the coolest and quietest so ideal for kids!
There is laundry and pretty much everything a family would need for an enjoyable stay.
The hill up to the house is quite steep (No joke) but you do get used to it. The beach is about a 10 minute walk and a small grocery store is about 5 minutes away.
The location at Playa Hermosa was a good home base for seeing other beach areas (Tamarindo, Playa Flamingo, etc) as well as longer excursions to Arenal and La Fortuna.
The property manager and concierge (Frazer) were very helpful.
Overall, highly recommend this property!
It was wonderful having a great family like the Anderson's stay at our home.
Everything went great. A beautiful place to stay and we would come back. We did have small issues that were handled immediately. We spent our days out of the home but upon returning we welcomed a relaxing atmosphere where we could wind down.
Beautiful! Exceeded our Expectations!!! 5 STARS
This was absolutely one of the most beautiful properties I’ve ever stayed in and we travel to Costa Rica all the time. So glad we found this hidden gem in the perfect location with everything we needed and more. Spacious and accommodating with breathtaking views. With local grocery stores and nearby local beaches, we were able to beach hop every day and enjoy Playa Hermosa which was my favorite beach. Each night we were able to entertain ourselves poolside with amazing sunsets, too. Renting a car is a must and definitely consider this beautiful home if you are staying in Costa Rica. We will be back for sure.
It’s in the heart of it all!!!
Awesome views and great place for a family!!!!
Terrance is great to work with and the team from Milagro is awesome! Very responsive to any questions or issues, and helpful is booking a day trip for us. Entire family had a great time! We’ll be back!
Fabulous house with fantastic view!
We had such a wonderful week at Casa Buena Vista. The house was just as pictured and we were as happy to stay there as we had expected to be. Our favorite times were evenings spent in the pool and grilling dinner as a family. The gift basket of items upon arrival, the security system, and the closet that locked in the master bedroom were added bonuses that we really appreciated. We did not take advantage of the concierge services that were offered as we mainly just beach hopped, but there were a few times that we needed to reach out to Frazier at Milagro and he was great to work with. I think my only suggestion for the property would be to have some extra seating in the TV area as it was a little tight for our family movie nights (and there were only 5 of us) but we managed just fine. All in all, we were sad to leave this house at the end of our stay. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.
