We visited with Andy and Fran in February 2013, and enjoyed excellent hospitality with great service. Besides offering a top-notch B&B, these folks will take you around the entire region, to inform you of how and what it would be like to live in Costa Rica. Those planning to retire in the near future need to go through these steps,... More

My wife, mother in law and I spent 4 nights here and had a blast. The room was great, the view should be on a postcard and a pool on top of that. This secure location is right where you can access the entire area of Playa Hermosa & Coco. Great area for food, drinks and stores. If you want... More

It was absolutely fantastic; Andy picked me up at the airport and after a short drive we were at Casa Frandy"s. The room was just the right size, and after finding a nice bottle of red wine in the ref rig, I knew I was right at home. Oh, did I mention the view; it went well with the wine... More

My husband and I just spent a week in Playa Hermosa, Costa Rica, and had the most informative, relaxing, fun filled time with Andy and Fran Browne. They took us every place that would be of future interest to us, as possible retired expats. We saw the markets, the pharmacy, the beaches, hospitals, rental homes, and so much more. We... More

We looked at a lot of places in Playa Hermosa and had a chance to meet Andy and Fran. They have a cute B&B that is first rate. Clean and well maintained in a self contained unit with a private entrance. The pool is great and the dogs are too cute. You can feel the stress leaving your body when... More

Since the mid-1990s, I have visited Costa Rica numerous times. I have travel up and down the east and west coasts and also passed through the central valley a few times. The area that I prefer the most, in this wonderful county, is Guanacaste. I like Guanacaste mainly because of its beautiful beaches, climate and location to small cities and... More

Andy and Fran are excellent hosts who love entertaining and sharing their wonderful lives. This is a Luxury place to stay on a modest budget. The rooms all overlook the Horizon pool which overlooks the Papagallo Gulf from about 500 feet elevation.

My husband and I were first time visitors to Costa Rica, and after doing some research on the perfect place to spend a week we decided on Playa Hermosa beach. Since we wanted our vacation to be extra special, and being particular about my accomodations, a friend recommended Frandy's Bed and Breakfast. We couldn't have been happier! Fran and Andy... More

This is the Best Kept Secret - From the minute we walked in, we were very impressed with the accommodations, the VIEW, the location and the warm welcome from Fran and Andy. We had stayed at a local hotel on the beach for the previous 2 days and realized we should have booked the entire time here. Located on a... More
