We loved Villas Serenidad. We had a garden room. It was like home. Comfy and cozy. Large bedroom and bathroom. A/c in the bedroom. Outdoor kitchen and living space. Everyone was helpful and accommodating during our stay. We will be back.

This is a great location for a couple or small group to get away. The units are spacious and charming. The gardens are gorgeous, and the ocean view from the deck is divine. You’ll fall asleep to the sound of the surf then can take a quick walk along undeveloped beach and choose from a variety of yummy breakfast spots in Puerto Viejo. If you don’t feel like walking or it’s after dark, take an inexpensive taxi ride. There’s lots of interesting stuff to do in the area. If you don’t mind a muddy, moderately strenuous hike, don’t miss the Kekoldi waterfall and definitely take a night hike in the jungle with Alex at Orok Wak Kekoldi. Also consider a surf lesson with Naima at Surf Meds. If you enjoy nature and are more interested in exploring the local scene than being catered to at a fancy resort then Villas Serenidad is a wonderful spot.

Perfect location right by the beach, awesome apartment, beautifully decorated and equipped, wonderful view, super friendly hosts, not far from the center of Puerto Viejo, yet super calm. I wish I could give the place 10 out of 5 points!

Our family had a wonderful time. The three-house set up worker perfectly for our extended family group, offering space for sub-groups (cousins knocking around, siblings doing a yoga practice, my father-in-law looking for a quiet pace to write poetry) to be together. At the same time, the big open kitchen and main house living room are welcoming, comfortable places where the whole group hung out often. The main house upstairs is open with no glass windows, which allows for a comfortable evening enjoying the breeze. The photographs don’t do the property justice. In real life, it is so pretty.

The sea breeze blowing off the beach into the house is wonderful. Sitting on a stool drinking coffee in the morning or a cold beer in the evening staring at the breaking waves while overlooking the hummingbirds in the colorful bushes, the lovely tropical floral garden, and the beach is magical. Sleeping in the bedroom that is in the loft of the main house is exceptional.

The cool breeze at night with the hypnotic sounds of rolling waves provides for a wonderful night’s sleep.

The black sand beach is clean with only a few other people near the villa’s access path. Walking along the beach past the nearby hotel towards the next river that flows into the sea is fun way to explore the area.

The house is easy to find from the main road. The restaurants and grocery stores in Puerto Viejo are a 30 minute walk along the beach or a 10 minute car ride. Access to the gold sand beaches on the other side of Puerto Viejo is a quick drive and definitely an option. Each of the beaches has a different vibe.

The kitchen and dining room space in the main house can accommodate comfortably meals for our family of 12. We found the house-keeper and night watchie helpful. Security is not a concern.

Overall, the home and garden are wonderful, the beach is beautiful and there is lots to see and do in the area. Great vacation.

What can I say? We just returned from Villa Serenidad. It is the most magnificent location. The sounds of the ocean, the beautiful landscaping, the stars at night. This is what vacation is meant to be. The beds are comfortable, people there are kind and helpful. Each day we went on different adventure and the drivers could pick us up right at the gate (steps from our rental). Each day we walked along the beach into town to eat. If you stay here, take their recommendations on where to eat... so much great food. There are board games to play, which we did in the evenings. I feel fortunate to have stayed here. Steps from the ocean and the view.... there is nothing like it.

Room tip: I imagine all of the choices are great, it is a matter of the size of your party.
