“Would not stay anywhere else and will be back”
Reviewed 3 May 2012

Villas hermosas is nestled in an edenic parcel of land on Playa Hermosa(one of the most visually stunning beaches I have been to.) The grounds are open and inviting but the impeccably maintained garden wraps its arms around you also. Tall Jacaranda trees shoot into the starry night, while travelers palms and guanacaste trees hold howlers monkeys and green lizards in the surrounding the relaxing pool. There are only 4 villas so you feel as though you have rented a private villa. Kojis sushi is 50 meters away(unreal.) Pranamar is 100 meters down the beach if you want a romantic stroll down the beach among millions of crabs at night.

Tara and Brad have a unique gift. They make you feel as though they actually love having you there- almost like you are at their house and they have thrown a weekend soiree where people are free to come and go to do their thing but if you need anything they are there. The uniqueness is that you find yourself delighted to run into them at sunset, almost hoping they will be around to spin an interesting funny story. Another thing I want to say is that my wife and I helped their neighbor take an injured howler monkey to the vet and the next day we found a bottle of wine and a thank you card in our villa- It is that touch that brings someone back.

I can't give 5 stars simply because the interior of the villas-though perfectly appointed for all your needs- I thought would be as visually stimulating and interesting as the outside of the villas. The brick dome and lighting are stellar but the surf photos on the walls don't mesh- small thing..... not a biggy at all.

We spent 8 nights at Villas Hermosas and could not have imagined having a better time. The villa was huge and wonderful - what a value! Everything was exactly as promised - gorgeous location, fantastic beaches, and ready access to lots of great activities. Brad and Tara really go out of their way to help however they can and they are truly fantastic hosts! I rarely write reviews but could hardly pass up the opportunity to wholeheartedly recommend this wonderful place. Check it out!

Sorry for the late post - wrote a review right after we got back from our vacation and then experienced an internet snafu while loading, so consequently my review did not post then! We (husband, step-son & his wife) stayed here in late January/early February and it was wonderful! Loved how small the place was, so we didn't have to share the place with alot of people. The villa's were immaculate and comfy! The pool and rancho were really nice! Loved Christy's breakfast's in the morning - she is an awesome lady! Beach was conveniently close and so beautiful! Would absolutely stay here again, in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Any of the villas would be excellent!

Santa Teresa sure has grown since the last visit in March 2009..Just had another wonderful vacation at Villas Hermosa with 12 other friends and family. We went in March again (2012), the weather was warm and sunny. Brad and Tara did a great job to make another fabulous vacation...Lots more restaurants in town..(such great food there)....its also a plus that breakfast is served every morning in the rancho, and something different everyday! from omlets, eggs to your liking, an french toast, fresh banana bread, pancakes,homeade cinnamon toast(so good), fresh oj, it really made things nice cause thats one meal ya dont have to worry about..did a two day atv tour that everyone had a blast on....went off shore fishing and we caught alot of grouper(enough to serve 14 people for two days), which we brought back and grilled at the rancho....got to see alot of great views of the beach and country. Looking forward to going back again!

Room Tip: Plan on staying longer...the first and last day are full from cabs, planes and packing.....stay as l...

Recently stayed there for 3 nights and we couldn't have been happier. The villas were great- very spacious and had top-notch modern amenities. Brad and Tara (owners) were so nice and helped us out with anything we needed. The jungle surroundings and direct beach access allow infinite possibilities for exploration and local activities. We surfed, snorkled, wined, & dined all within easy walking distance. I would HIGHLY recommend taking the ATV tour with Brad. Seriously one of the funnest things either of us has ever done. Would absolutely stay here again and already planning next trip back!
