Choose a Vacation Villa Rental for Your Next Vacation to Playa Hermosa


Villa La Cima

King Summit


If you’re looking for a villa with stunning ocean views in a convenient location, then our Playa Hermosa villas fit the bill perfectly.

Playa Hermosa means “Beautiful Beach.” This aptly-named destination in Guanacaste is just 20 minutes from Liberia International Airport (LIR) and boasts the crystal clear, deep blue water of Bahia Hermosa (“Beautiful Bay”). Gorgeous white sand hugs the bay where the sea ends and the town of Playa Hermosa begins.

The town itself has much to offer. Basic conveniences such as grocery stores, bakeries, and restaurants make both short and extended stays easy. Lush greenery and natural beauty can be found throughout the town as well, making it the perfect balance of scenic and practical.

A perfect place to spend your entire getaway, Playa Hermosa is also the perfect start to a tour of Guanacaste. Nearby are several national parks and natural preserves, as well as famous Arenal volcano and other opportunities for eco adventures.

Our Playa Hermosa vacation rentals make it easy to see and do it all – with privacy and elegance.

Extraordinary Villas

Not far from the sea, the land rises up to become the hills and mountains of Playa Hermosa. Our luxury villas are perched here, where guests awake to the songs of exotic birds and enjoy their morning cup while gazing out over Bahia Hermosa with panoramic views framed by lush greenery.

In fact, our Playa Hermosa villas were designed to capture the beauty of Costa Rica at every turn. Infinity-edge pools make it feel like you’re swimming in a lagoon, our spas like soaking in natural hot springs.

While each villa has its own personality, each achieves a rarefied level of luxury that’s unmatched anywhere else. Revel in the classic beauty of Maravilla’s old-world style, the tropical elegance of King Summit, or the Romance of Casa de la Montana’s spiral staircase.

These villas are spacious and airy. Most can comfortably sleep groups of up to 12 while offering gorgeous views in each en-suite room. Surround yourself with the elegance of fine fixtures, finishes, and details. Soaring windows and ceilings allow nature to add her own bright beauty to the décor.

Most of our Playa Hermosa vacation villas have courtyard style layouts that place outdoor living at the estate’s heart and allow for incredible privacy in the main house and a separate casita or two.

Things to Do in Playa Hermosa

Not sure what to do on your vacation in Playa Hermosa? We can help you take care of that too. Just let us know what gets your adrenaline pumping (or helps you find your Zen), and we’ll handle the details.

Sea Adventures

It is said that Playa Hermosa is the best place in Costa Rica to watch a sunset. As a winner of the ‘Blue Flag’ award for high environmental standards, the beaches here truly show nature and all her glory. Enjoy her while lounging on the beach, swimming in her waters, or meeting her colorful children while snorkeling.

To really get to know the area, however, you must “dive right in.” Playa Hermosa offers some of the best scuba diving in the nation. If you prefer to stay above the water, then sailing, windsurfing, kayaking, and jet skiing are excellent choices as well.

Land Adventures

If you’ve never summited a volcano, now is your chance. Whether atop a horse or hiking on your own two feet, Arenal volcano awaits the intrepid. Other eco-adventures include exploring natural preserves and jeep tours. Cultural outings are also popular. Playa Hermosa has delectable restaurants and a thriving nightlife
