Paradise! Just a half hour drive from the Liberia international airport, the jungle meets the volcanic hills and a dazzling Blue-Flag beach appears: the perfectly named Playa Hermosa (“beautiful beach” in Spanish).

Welcome to iconic Casitas Vista Mar, featured on HGTV's "Beachfront Bargain Hunt”! We offer an idyllic location at the quiet south end of the beach…enjoy your view of the ocean…hear the surf…and WALK to the beach in 3 minutes!

The space
Casitas Vista Mar is a villa which houses 3 fully self-contained suites - the name translates to “little houses with a view of the sea”…and that’s exactly what we offer!

The suites are side-by-side, with each one set back from the one next to it, so each has its own private terrace overlooking the ocean! The suites are separated by cement block walls - peaceful and private.

The suites are identical in size and layout, but very different in feel. We’ve named all 3 suites after flowers: ours is “Plumeria”, named after the gorgeous flowering tree outside our bedroom window; the middle suite is named “Maracuya”, after the vibrant passionfruit flower; the end suite is “Ylang Ylang" (pronounced ee-lang ee-lang), named after the beautifully fragrant flower used in aromatherapy to promote peace.


This listing is for our own “Plumeria” suite - the other suites can also be found here on Airbnb, under “Casitas Vista Mar - Maracuya Suite” and "Casitas Vista Mar - Ylang Ylang Suite".

Over the past three years, we have completely re-imagined, rebuilt and re-furnished our villa and are proud to offer you this very special space!

The suite features a soaring vaulted ceiling - a floating staircase leads to a loft bedroom with a walk-out to a rooftop terrace.

The Plumeria suite is decorated in light airy shades punctuated by pops of tropical colour - a perfectly balanced palate that's both soothing and invigorating!

The furniture is handcrafted by local artisans, using the famous local woods of Guanacaste province. Built-in closets and cabinetry all around the bed provide plenty of space for your belongings.

High thread-count linens and plush towels are among the many details that have been carefully chosen to ensure the utmost in comfort and enjoyment. The kitchen has everything you need, right down to a blender for those classic tropical cocktails.

The huge, private covered terrace is furnished with two ceiling fans, a barbecue and a dining suite - this is where you’ll want to spend most of your time, enjoying the spectacular view of the ocean! There's a side terrace equipped with two zero-gravity chairs (the perfect spot to lounge, read...and nap!). While the rooftop terrace is not furnished, the lightweight zero-gravity chairs can be used up there as well.

Whether you prefer to keep cool by opening the windows and turning on the ceiling fans (like we do) or closing it all up and turning on the air conditioning, we’ve got you covered - we offer brand new ceiling fans and air conditioning units in all our suites.

Where you’ll be

Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste Province, Costa Rica

Playa Hermosa is one of several Pacific beach towns which are easily accessed (within about 30 minutes) from the Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport, near Liberia. It's a small town with a wonderful mix of traditional “Tico” homes, elegant villas, modern condos and boutique hotels.

The real gem is, of course, the beach- a perfect, sandy crescent-shaped beach protected at both ends by a rocky peninsula and where, in some locations, trees provide shade. Activities are endless: paddleboarding, kayaking, fishing, jet-skiing, sailing, scuba diving, snorkelling or just running / walking the beach.

This is a great recreational / lounging beach - the waves are gentler than the famous surf beaches to the south of us; the water is warm and clean; the sandy bottom is gentle on your feet; and it deepens very gradually, making it ideal for those who just want to walk in a bit to cool off, without ending up in water over their heads.

In town, we have a small local grocery store and pharmacy (the Luperon), tour operators, boat charters and even a cinema. And, despite its small size, Playa Hermosa offers a selection of restaurants to suit every taste and budget…many within walking distance from our villa!

We live in Toronto, Canada, where we work together as Realtors. We love to travel and we fell in love with Costa Rica from our first trip there. So...in 2014, we decided to find a place of our own in this beautiful country. We get away to our villa as often as possible and we may just be there during your stay!

We're new to airBnB, but we have 8 years' experience in vacation rentals - we had a beachfront condo in Florida which we refurbished and refurnished, then built a steady clientele of vacationers (many of them annual visitors). We had built it up to 90% occupancy and a 5-star rating by the time we sold it in 2015.
