The space

My villa is unique in that it is only 25 minutes from the Liberia International Airport. It is a privately owned villa within an all inclusive resort setting.

Guest access

Because my villa is privately owned, within an all-inclusive resort environment my guests have access to most of the amenities of the resort, such as the hotel pools, onsite shuttle, gym, and 24/7 security. You also have the option to opt into the resort all inclusive meal plan. The resort property fronts down to the beach.

We really enjoyed our stay and found the place to be well stocked and quite nice. Although it is a bit of a walk to the beach, the resort shuttle can make the walk quite short. The beach was absolutely beautiful and the sunsets in the evening while eating at one of the many very good resteraunts on the beach was breathtaking. Comunication with the host was excellent and we would definitely stay here again if we return to the area.

This place was exceptionally accommodating with everything you need to enjoy your stay! Dianne was responsive to all of our questions and her notebook she has in the residence was thorough and provided information for both the resort and the surrounding area. Highly recommend if you're searching for a stress free and relaxing vacation.

Diane's villa is outstanding and comes at a great value! The pictures really don't capture how cozy and nice her place is, as well as the overall beauty of the entire resort property. We were a group of four ladies celebrating a double birthday and this was the perfect location to relax and have fun. We felt safe the entire time. This is what I loved about the villa: the architecture, the variety of kitchen utensils, Wi-Fi that worked the entire time, air-conditioning in all rooms and shared space, the beautiful tropical view with lots of colorful birds, the comfortable beds, the cleanliness, the hot showers, the amount of shower and beach towels and the overall privacy. The cool plunge pool was a delicious luxury at the end of an adventurous day. Although the villa is located in a resort, we didn´t feel the need to use its amenities, but the resort is also beautiful and the staff is super friendly. As a hostess, Diane was excellent from the start providing clear, direct and accurate information in a very friendly manner. Playa Hermosa is just a 5 minute walk away and also a million times more beautiful than all of the pictures I saw. We didn´t rent a car and we really didn´t need it. Although the villa is in quiet area, it´s just a 15-minute walk from the grocery story and less than 10 minutes from nice restaurants by the ocean. Coco Beach (where you can find a more vibrant nightlife/social scene) is only a 15 minute cab drive from the villa. We went on a few private tours of the regions and our tour guides picked us up at the resort. I will recommend Diane's villa to all of my friends and wouldn´t even blink about returning to it on another vacation. It was fabulous!

The pictures for this villa do not do it justice. Diane's place was breathtaking. Exactly what I think of when going on vacation and staying somewhere aunthentic. The hotel staff was amazing as well and access to resort facilities was very much open. We had no problems aside from the hot water situation with tuned out to be just the flip of a switch.

This property was perfect. To give background details, we booked this trip as 5 friends interested in experiencing a less tourist side of Costa Rica but still have access to amenities. This provided just that. It is a 10 minute walk to the grocery store, shuttles to take you to the beach and excursion options for purchase from the Villa Sol staff, former staff that have now started their own business & book excursions on the beach. But I digress the property is perfect, Uriel the property manager met us in the villa at check-in helped us get our luggage in the house & answered any last minute questions we had. We actually took a day trip to Nicaragua per Uriel's suggestion booked through one of the former Villa workers I was referring to previously. The weather was great, the property has enough towels (showering & beach), there was ample cleaning supplies. I would definitely stay here again!! Thank you Diane for allowing us to experience such a great space. We hosted a BBQ & they complimented your decorum.

House was above our expectations. The resort it was in was pretty great as well. The house was clean and stocked with towels and toiletries. The views from the patio were pretty amazing. If you have trouble walking or are out of shape I wouldn't recommend because of the hills and distances the pool and restaurants are. All in all it was a great experience.

We could not have enjoyed our stay in Playa Hermosa more, and much of that was attributable to the attention and care that Diane put into making our stay as comfortable as possible. We booked nearly 6 months in advance, and Diane did a wonderful job of checking in to make sure we knew where to go and who to talk to in order to find our villa. The villa was exactly what we expected...incredible view from the hammock (my favorite spot), very clean and tidy, Mitsubishi air conditioner in each room (didn't expect that), great location on the resort grounds...there was even brand new furniture. All-in-all, we were extremely pleased with our stay...and even my worrying mother was at ease the entire time.

Thank you for choosing my villa Kevin, it was great having you as a guest and I look forward to having you again. Yes , my location is a great place to ease worrying mothers, nothing to worry about except relaxing. I love laying laying in the hammock in the early mornings to watch the birds, butterflies and looking at the heleconia.
