Property description

Our charming 1 bedroom guesthouse is just a 5 minute walk from 'beautiful' Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste, on the first entrance road. It has a spacious feeling for a small casa, with vaulted wood panel ceiling and bi-level room separation of 2 stone steps up from the living room to the kitchen and bedroom. There are lovely wooden interior doors and molding with smoked glass Balinesian sliding doors to the bedroom.

We are situated next door to a lovely, small boutique hotel which offers fine and relaxed dining and live music several times a week during high season. We are walking distance from 3 beachfront restaurants, 5 off beach restaurants and a grocery store.

Playa Hermosa is located in a large bay and has gentle waves which is perfect for swimming and safe for children's play. The sand is firm and popular for jogging and walking. From our beach you can arrange sunset cruises, fishing trips, Diving tours, snorkling tours and kayak rental.

We are a perfect place to relax at the beach without a car, and with a rental car, a great base camp for exploring the Rincon de la Vieja National Park, and Palos Verdes National (Wetlands) Park. We are a 3 1/2 hour drive from the Arenal Volcano, and 1 hour from Tamarindo and Playa Grande, famous for surfing. We are close to two zip line attractions, and the Papagayo Marina.

Although we live next door to the guesthouse,and the Specialty Hotel, it affords privacy and security without a 'gated community' feeling.

About the owner: My husband and I moved to Costa Rica for the quiet lifestyle, wonderful perpetual summer weather, to learn Spanish and to open an art studio. We now teach several children's art classes and occasional adult art classes. This has been our retirement dream come true.

We love the beauty and quiet of this beach community, as well as the excellent amenities.
