About our home

Welcome to Villas Serenidad, your gorgeous home-away-from-home. This custom-built hardwood villa has vaulted Cathedral ceilings, ceiling fans and a spectacular view of the ocean. It overlooks a lush tropical garden, designed by our award-winning landscape designer. We are 50 meters from the surf, at the quiet Playa Negra beach; and a short (20-minute) walk or 10-minute bike ride to the funky, authentic, culturally-diverse town of Puerto Viejo.

This is the main villa, which has 3 bedrooms. The "Master" is a loft-style bedroom, overlooking the main area of the house, with views of the ocean from the bedroom. Private bath.

The other 2 bedrooms are downstairs, and share a bathroom.

While we say it can sleep 6 (2 in Master, and 2 in each of the other bedrooms), it can sleep 1-2 more on couches on the porch.

Open-air living room and dining room, which opens directly onto garden/view of ocean.

Puerto Viejo offers delicious restaurants, fun shopping, and opportunities for all kinds of activities - surfing, jungle hikes, river-rafting, zip-lines, chocolate tours, animal sanctuary, yoga classes, snorkeling, beach & jungle horseback riding, paddleboarding, kayaking and more.

We have (4) additional 1-bedroom cottages on the property. Depending on the swap, we are open to swapping several of the cottages.

Please note that we charge a management and housekeeping fee for all POINTS swaps (approximately $50 per night) Waived for classic swaps.


More about us

  1. We are a family of 4 - 2 parents, and 2 teens (a 15 year old girl, and a 17 year old boy), and a dog (but he doesn't generally travel with us unless we are staying close by). We live in Washington, DC.

  2. Our son plays Ultimate Frisbee, loves music, and is insanely neat and organized.
    Our daughter is an all-around athlete - she used to be a competitive cyclist and now plays field hockey and is taking up boxing; she loves to travel and is an adventurous eater.

  3. David owns his own marketing company and is kind of a tech-geek ;)
    Karen doesn't understand anything tech-related and tends toward being a people-person, working with women around personal growth, empowerment, etc.

Where is it?


While our place is right on the beach (only a tropical garden lies between you and the surf!), you are also a 20-minute walk (by beach) or 10-minute bike ride or 5 minute car/taxi ride from the eclectic, funky town of Puerto Viejo. PV is loaded with delicious restaurants - Italian, vegetarian, local (with a Jamaican flair), Brazilian, name it, it seems like we've got it! The town itself also offers fun shopping and great nightlife, if you choose to partake.
In and around the area are opportunities for exploration and adventure - we know amazing tour guides to take you on jungle hikes or kayak tours; horseback riding on the beach and through the jungle; an amazing animal sanctuary (The Jaguar Rescue Center); tours of cacao farms (chocolate); opportunities to snorkel, zip line,'s all nearby!
We fell in love with this gorgeous, wild, authentic area and we hope you will too!
