Playa Hermosa house description

This stunning, well appointed 4 bedroom home is located in the gated community of Hermosa Palms. Check the surf off the master bedroom and deck, or let it lull you to sleep after a day of fun. Savour your coffee and breakfast outside under one of the 2 covered terraces. Enjoy the sea breezes while swinging in the hammock on the roof top terrace. Have a barbecue or let someone else do the cooking and dine at a nearby restaurant.

The beach and community pool are a short two minute, 500 foot stroll away. Just carry your surf board with you. Playa Hermosa is one of the most consistent and best surfing destinations in Costa Rica. The site of the 2009 summer world surfing championships. You may also see turtles on the beach laying their eggs. Spotting the Scarlet Macaw parrots in the almond trees is a daily event, usually at 6am or 4 pm.

Your private beach home is just 7 minutes away from the town of Jaco. In Jaco you will find numerous restaurants, shops, banks, grocery stores, car rentals, pharmacies and plenty of night life including casinos.
For a real thrill don't forget the Zip lines just outside of town.
You're only 45 minutes from the world famous Manuel Antonio National Park. This park has monkeys, parrots and other wildlife. There are great eateries along the way with spectacular clifftop ocean views.

Just a 15 minute drive north you will find the 5 star Marriott Los Suenos Resort, which offers golf, tennis,shops, fine dining, spa and marina, or continue along another 5 minutes and treat yourself to sunset cocktails at Villa Caleta's. This will be unforgettable.
The airport in San Jose is less than ninety minutes away with a newly opened highway. Rental car pickup, taxi or van can be easily arranged including a driver. Just step out of the airport and let someone else do the driving.

This spectacular tropical beach community of Hermosa Palms is noted for its ideal location and friendly atmosphere. Close to the town of Jaco, yet blessed with 5 miles of uncrowded beach and endless surf. Your ideal place to decompress from life's pressures.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2007

                      About the owner: My wife and I first discovered the beauty and friendly relaxed culture of Costa Rica in 2004.

                      Why the Owner Chose Playa Hermosa:
                      We rented many condos and homes nearby and then happened to find Hermosa Palms and rent in this community. Our intention was to build elswhere, but the specatular beach life and community of Hermosa Palms quickly changed our minds.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Long walks on a mostly empty beach other than a few surfers enjoying themselves, offered more than we could ever have dreamed for.If you are a bird watcher then you found the right spot. Parrots, pelicans, hummingbirds and a hundred more species are there to see. When you need ammenities or a night out for dining its at your fingertips. No long drives just to get the basics. Your precious vacation time is left for what you want to do. Relax and enjoy your self.
