Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Our family of 4 enjoy frequent leisure travel. For many reasons, we are always thrilled to visit the Costa Rican central coast area & our Hermosa Palms property in particular.

Why the Owner Chose Playa Hermosa:
Surreal - choice oceanfront location in the central coast's most desireable beachfront community of Hermosa Palms. Fantastic Costa Rican beauty and hospitality abounds. Close to Jaco for nightlife, dining & shopping, golf at Los Suenos and GREAT Surf. Just minutes north of the Turtle Refuge.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our combination of our own private pool, larger than average private yard, 2 car garage, outdoor pool bath, convenient outside shower, unobstructed oceanfront views, proximity to common area pool & beach, upscale furnishings, quality beds, linens, and high maintenance standards make this property the best value in the area. This comfortable home, formerly known as 'Pax a la Playa' (Peace at the Beach) is the perfect spot to call home base on your next Costa Rica trip.
