Great location and wonderful host
We stayed here during the Covid19 chaos. The room and grounds were beatiful and the security was top notch. I can't express my appreciation enough to our hosts who were so supportive both during our stay and after we left. You can't get that kind of care and personal service at any tesort ant any price. Can't wait to go back and pick up where we left off. Muchas gracias Cinthya y Gary!

Perfect rental in a perfect place
I needed a long term rental in Playa Hermosa and discovered this gem - a studio apartment complete with a small kitchenette on the second floor within a half hour from Liberia Airport. I could hear the waves crashing on the beach which is only a 2 minute walk. If I wanted to eat out, there were restaurants within walking distance. The owners live on the property and were like family to me making sure I had everything I needed during my stay. I had plenty of hot water and enough bath towels for 4 people. The towels were big and soft and there were also had beach towels to use and a beach chair and noodle. In addition to the beach, I had two pools. One of my friends stayed with me for 2 weeks and we each had our own space, no problem. What amazed me the most was the weekly maid. She took two hours to clean the studio making the it sparkle. Going into Playas del Coco, a town about 6 miles from the apartment, I used a taxi. I was lucky to find such a great rental and a great location and great owners to make my stay in Playa Hermosa perfect!

Very Pleasant Hosts
Room was very nice. Comfy bed and nice linens... lots of quality towels. Small kitchen for basic cooking. Cinthya and Gary were extremely pleasant and helpful. Felt safe and secure. Beach a few minutes walk. Lovely beach and lots of beaches nearby. Flights changed and had a sister arrive a day early...hosts were extremely accommodating and set up blowup bed for the night. Grateful for that. If I Were staying longer than 4-5 nights would prefer bigger kitchen/cooking facilities. But for our short stay it was perfect!!! Thanks again Cinthya and Gary!

El Oasis Villa
This studio apartment is one of two upstairs in the villa belonging to Gary and Cynthia; there are fifteen villas in this secure development which has a tropical garden with good sized pool in the centre. The apartment we stayed in for two months (except for a few road trips) is quite large with a good bed, TV, A/C, en-suite bathroom and a small kitchenette with fridge, hotplate and utensils. Unfortunately the ceiling fan was inoperative for the duration. Gary and Cynthia are a really helpful, friendly couple, always happy to assist with local information, directions and where to shop. The Villas del Sueno hotel is across the road and has a very good restaurant with great food and service, but is a little pricey. We ate there a few times during our stay, including a really impressive set menu Valentine night's dinner dance. Playa Hermosa is small town with beachfront hotels, restaurants and a small supermarket, the beach is a short walk downhill from the apartment. The neighbouring town of Playa del Coco is bigger, with banks, large supermarkets, a casino and lots of restaurants (but at tourist prices). There is a Walmart in Liberia, which is the capital of Guanacaste province and is about a half-hour drive away. We rented a small car for the duration of our stay in Costa Rica, which was a reasonable price, but the comprehensive insurance costs were almost prohibitive. Gary and Cynthia, and the house-cleaner Hilda, made our stay in their home very memorable.

Worth it !!
This studio was perfect for our stay in Playa Hermosa. Clean, very close to the beach and the pictures are an accurate representation of the studio. The owners were very accommodating and provided answers to all of our questions. We would stay here again if returning to Playa Hermosa.

Perfect in every way.
Do not hesitate renting this studio. It is large and the owners are extremely accommodating. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this rental. It was very clean, there was a nice breakfast area, it only took a couple of minutes to walk to the beach, free wifi, linens, a pool, I could go on and on. I almost stayed in a hotel but chose this place instead and am I ever grateful! It was much better than I expected. There is a small grocery/convenience store within walking distance so if you want to buy food to keep in the small refrigerator, you can. The beach is literally around the corner. Most places are within walking distance. There are some wonderful restaurants down on the beach. The best part of this place are Cinthyia and Gary, the owners. They are such wonderful people. This was my first trip ever to Costa Rica and I was also traveling alone. Cinthyia and I emailed back and forth for a couple of weeks before I arrived and she helped ease my concerns. She helped me find tours, offered suggestions on things to do while in Costa Rica, suggested restaurants for dinner, and even helped me get back and forth from the airport as well as various beaches around Playa Hermosa. I enjoyed spending time chatting with both her and Gary. They always had wonderful advice about where to go and what to do, and are great company as well. My advice: STAY HERE. Thanks again Cinthyia and Gary! Hopefully I will see you again in the near future.

Perfect Location with Perfect Hosts
From the beginning to the end of the trip the owners have been excellent. My friend arrived around 7 am on the first morning of the trip and Cynthia was up already to give him the keys to the apartment. After I arrived and we were rested we went downstairs to chat with Cynthia about tours and she had already called and emailed various tour groups to give us options. She suggested Tico Tours (which is walking distance from the apartment) and called the same evening to book our first trip. When we wanted to find somewhere to eat she even drove us to a beautiful seaside restaurant. BTW Tico Tours is really the only way to go for trips in Costa Rica. Gary was also very lovely to chat with and calmed my fears about Costa Rican wildlife. The room is comfortable with a little balcony to walk out unto and the it was great to have a kitchenette so we could stock and prepare things at home if we wanted. Next trip,I will try to take advantage of the pool.
