  • The Villa was AMAZING! Great view from the top of the mountain. You can see and hear the beach and a 15-20 minute hike down the steep road takes you down to a few good places eat and surf. There is no central AC, but that is normal for most places, but we enjoyed laying out in the hammock and opening the sliding glass doors that surround the house. A few white faced monkeys greeted us when we arrived and came back when we left. You cant be afraid of bugs either, because there are a LOT of them, and iguanas. The only thing I could complain about is that one shower was super cold or super hot and drizzled out, no water pressure. And that the road up is so steep 2 of our taxis cars stalled haha. So we just walked the rest of the way. There is only one house key and alarm so coordinating with 12 people who to hold the key was a pain, but Erica was super cool about everything and very accommodating. She gave perfect directions to the house and walked me through everything when I arrived. The house and pool was spotless! in fact, 2 people ran into the sliding glass doors face first because the glass was so clean!! All appliances, tv, fridge, washer/dryer worked and were used. There is a guard on duty every night so there was no need to worry about leaving things in the house. Overall, GREAT place to stay, everyone loved it! 10 min from Los Suenos, 5 Min fron Jaco. Awesome views, great host, clean house!!

  • We had an amazing time at Erica's! The house is absolutely beautiful and Erica was so helpful. She gave us excellent suggestions for both excursions and restaurants. We took her advice and were very happy with everything that we did. It was one of the best vacations we have had. Can't wait to go back!

  • We had a family reunion here and there were 9 of us in total. It was a gorgeous house. We arrived and it was dark and were awoken to the most beautiful sunrise and landscape. The house and all the bedrooms/mattresses were very comfortable. The pool was amazing!! We spent many days and nights chilling outside, barbequing and cooking with fresh the local ingredients. We had nature all around us every day, and as the week went on it got more and more interesting. Erica was a super host, letting us know the best restaurants, places to buy fresh seafood and helping to organize any excursions we were interested in. It was very sad to say goodbye to Costa Rica and Playa Hermosa house and I would love to come back sometime.

  • Amazing would sum up the review. It's I'd no doubt a must stay! Beautiful views, great house with an amazing pool and ton of amenities! The owner was great and met us at the house. She was available for questions and followed up quickly. Just a fantastic place for a great price. No doubt a place we will stay again when back in Costa Rica!

  • This place is simply amazing! We really did not have to leave the house due to the pool, daily monkey visitors, Macaw birds, Tucan birds and many many more. The house is in a very very secure location with a guard at the gate to let you in and out. Erica helped set our tours and even got a us a great discount on each one and arranged for us to be picked up at the house. We did the waterfall tour and i am ranking this as the best tour i have ever taken by x2. the tour was called the "Explorer" and we climbed up 10 waterfalls, yep climbed rite through the falling water and into a pool of water then up the next waterfall and so on, then we finished with a huge pineapple. Tour guilds name was Blad and his vehicle was Pepe making this a true costa rica safari. We had one person with us with a replaced hip and had one extra person from a different party that came with, she was not in shape in any way and still was able to do the tour. Food at Graffiti in Jaco is better than most of what you will find in the states, it is high end and not fast food as they say! Food at Lemmon Zest in Jaco was super good too. This is, as of now, ranked my #1 vacation. I might spend the rest of my life trying to beat it. I suggest this to everyone and anyone, go get some sun/rain/adventure. Thanks Erica!

  • We stayed at Erica's house for seven wonderful days! We had a group of six and we were all able to do exactly what we wanted, from birding to surfing to ATVing to zip-lining! Everyone walked away well-rested and with a few more adventures under their belt! Erica was a great hostess; very welcoming and accommodating!

  • We were a group of 8 who had a great time at the house. The house is fully equipped with AC in the bedrooms, an amazing pool and a bbq area. Erica showed is how things worked the first day and the adventure started there. Strongly recommend the house for a relaxing vacation and a car is a must.
