About the area

Playa Hermosa is central to many beaches in this area. A few miles north or south you will find Playas Panama, Playa Blanca, Playa Nacascol, Playas del Coco and Ocotal to name a few. This beach area is the closest to the Liberia airport and the conveniences to the city of Liberia (Medical, hospital, shopping, sight seeing). It is also closest to many of the popular volcano areas (Rincon de La Vieja, Miravalles, Tenoro, etc). Because of being inside the Golfo de Papagayo the waters in Playa Hermosa tend to be calmer and the entry into the water is gradual, therefore safe swimming for all ages. If you are looking for surfing, the best is less that 1 hour away. Attractions: Tours, water sports, Catamaran, hiking, SPA, plus...most people go home tired and can't wait to get back to do the things they didn't have time for.

Owner Supplied Testimonials

Perfect home away from home - beautiful view!!

Booked with Corby online, explained our needs, family with 4 almost adult kids, near the beach, airport, places to eat, etc. The home was a perfect match! Plenty of space for us to spread out, but also plenty of room for all of us to eat breakfast together and enjoy the time. Corby met us at the home, had already made sure air conditioning, pool, hot tub and other systems were working. Gave us a quick tour...made recommendations for eating, massages, local highlights. Home was well furnished with necessary supplies--paper towels, dish washing soap, coffee filters, trash bags, etc. Good security-gated plus the staff walked around making sure all was secure. Would very confidently recommend this home and leasing agent.

Terrific Time

My wife and I and our two teens (Montgomery County, MD, USA) had an absolutely fantastic time at this home (Casa Lasky) north west cost, Costa Rica. We first drove to Monteverde upon arriving in Liberia, but then headed back to the house near the coast and only 30min from Liberia airport, for a week. Corby met us with the keys at a local restaurant when we arrived. The house was beautiful as were the views from the hill overlooking Bahia Culebra ("Snake Bay"). Fantastic accommodations in a single family home with 4 bedrooms! Each with a bath, with great room with vaulted ceiling, where a full kitchen, living room space a dining area. The entire west side of the home faced the sunsets and patio and private infinity pool. Ceiling fans all around - even outside with beautiful landscaping. The entrance to the neighborhood has a security guard on duty 24hrs, but we didn't see the need. The community people were always polite, friendly and accommodating. There were many restaurants around but our family enjoys cooking together, so nearly every day we went the markets to find something else to prepare later, and used the grill every night. The veggies and fruits were the best, especially the avacados and tropicals;;; smoothies at least 2x day.

We got our exercise as well by walking up to the top of the hill behind the house to take in the views of the bay! The Bahia Culebra management run by Corby, were all so terrific and helpful. They arranged a terrific boat trip one day with snorkeling and snacks that left from the Hilton Marina where all the staff there were just as friendly and happy we were visiting. Corby also introduced us to another tour operator "Amy" of avispas adventures who came to house and arranged a wildlife trip. A guide picked us up at the house in the morning and off we went, starting with some local points of interest like the river where workers harvested the fine sand by hand and oxcart, and giant iguanas in Filadelfia. Then off to a wildlife tour on a small boat. Then wild scarlet macaws, monkeys on the river, and even a small group of bats - probably Rhynchonycteris naso lined up on a tree trunk. Birds and many crocs too! Too many photos to frame. We also enjoyed a traditional lunch in a small village on the way back. At the end of each day we just had to worry about getting into the pool and enjoying another sunset and cocktail. Fantastic time! And hope to return.

Owner's Response: It's always rewarding to know what a wonderful time our guests have when visiting Costa Rica! I'm looking forward to helping you organize your next vacation. This is one of the things that I love about Costa Rica; there are so many things to see and do, it's difficult to do in only a week. Hasta proximo vez!

Amazing home and location

We came and stayed at this beautiful home for 2 weeks end of March. Corby was awesome to deal with and any questions we had she would respond or get back to us within minutes.
The location of the home is amazing. Right up the hill from the beach, close to Playa Del Coco and Liberia. There is so much to see and do we wish we could have stayed longer!
The view from the home is worth a million dollars! The endless pool was great and very clean!
The home is laid out amazing and worked great for our large family.
The weather was amazing everyday we were there and HOT!
Access to the hotel pool and water slides was a bonus for our kids. The staff and security were friendly.
Grocery stores are close by along with the fruit stands around the area.
We saw so much wild life, our kids were amazed! Especially when we were awakened by 15 plus monkeys in the trees next to the property.

We highly recommend this home and location to anyone!

Perfect home for Family Vacation

Wonderful home with an amazing view. This is the second time I have rented this home so I knew the house would work with our large family. House is exactly as described, and checks off all the boxes for us. It is well maintained, and very clean..There is nice open space to enjoy each other's company, and also large enough to all everyone some space as well. The interior is also on a single level--which is very helpful as we have one individual who has some mobility issues. I worked with Corby Smith who is the listing agent in reserving the house. She graciously made our rental care reservations.. Could not have ask for a better person to assist with the planning process. I would recommend this house for families or couples traveling together--and Corby.

Quiet serenity with a stunning ocean view

Corby booked this home for my husband and I and the couple we were travelling with. She was very helpful with getting us set up and comfortable. As their were only 2 couples we were able to rent and pay for two bedrooms/bathrooms and still enjoy all the amenities. The outdoor space .with pool and view were the highlights of our stay. The house was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was lacking in some utensils but we managed to cook and the barbecue was well used. Costa Rica has miles of coastline and more beaches than you could possibly visit so a car was a definite necessity.

Perfect family vacation home! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★


We are 7 adults with 3 young children, coming from scattered parts of the US. . . What a lovely place to gather over the Christmaa holiday! The view from the house overlooking the bay is spectacular! We have beautiful birds that come to greet us in the morning, where we can quietly calmly eat our breakfast while the kids play in the private pool that is footsteps away. We have also been enjoying the community pool that has 2 slides, and the miniature golf course.The house is spacious and lovely. We're looking forward to an amazing adventure with Tico Tours. . .ziplining, horseback riding, hot spring, and mud bath!

Beautiful place on the hill ★ ★ ★ ★ ★


Arrival was easy, the owner was really helpful and communicative. The property was beautiful, and the location is great. It's quiet, an absolutely beautiful view, and just a nice place to stay. Playa Hermosa is a much better choice than Playas De Coco, it's a lot less touristy here. Recommend to have a car to get around, but that's about it.
