Property description

This villa is ideal for a romantic holiday. Walk out from either bedroom to an amazing slate terrace. Enjoy your morning, sipping our rich Costa Rican coffee, while watching the scarlet macaws and toucans in nearby trees - we've even seen a sloth in the trees across the street! Relax in the beautifully tiled indigo blue pool, or sit on the lounge chairs soaking up the sun. This house is all about relaxing and enjoying. One nice feature to this house is that both bedrooms are equal in size - which is very nice when 2 couples are renting. We also have deep well water and it is filtered. You can safely drink the water here, which is very rare in this area.

In Mediterranean architecture, the open floor plan is perfect for entertaining or romantic getaways. If you like to cook, you'll love this kitchen; fully equipped with a bar separating the living room. The house is built with all local woods, the ceiling being exposed teak beams, and all work by local artisans.
Arriving at the villa, you'll be greeted with a bouquet of fresh flowers (usually cut from the flowers in the villa's garden) along with a welcome basket with local fresh fruit. You'll feel right at home within minutes! We'll give you some suggestions for grocery shopping and basic necessities, but one nice thing about this location is everything is easy to get to and safe to explore.

Local restaurants and bars, all within 5 minutes. A list of activities, all within walking distance (meaning less than 5 minutes):
There is a yoga retreat about 2 minute walk from the house, they have various sessions throughout the day.
We have an Olympic size swimming pool, for a small fee you can take swim lessons, or simply exercise with laps.
We have new mountain bike trails in our neighborhood, the first in the Jaco area.
Hiking is very popular amongst our guests, from your front door there are numerous trails to explore, including to waterfalls, up mountains, into the rain forest or simply to the beach, which is about a mile down the road.
Los Suenos Marina is about a 20 minute drive. A one hour drive to San Jose airport, this is the perfect location for a quick getaway!

We can assist you with all your vacationing needs, from transportation to zip line tours, white water rafting, and of course our world famous deep water fishing. This is sure to be your best vacation ever!

Sitting next to the refreshing pool! 02/14/2015

VRBO Bear stayed here:


Do I start with the beautiful swimming pool, the amazing location, or the thoughtful property manager, Kelie?

I’ll go ahead and announce to the world that this was the best vacation I have ever been on, and it all starts with this beautiful, well-appointed property. We arrived to an amazingly clean, very well lit and welcoming home situated at the foothills of some of the prettiest country you’ll ever see.

Looking around the house, your eyes are first drawn to the beautiful local craftsmanship of the property. The ceilings had us mesmerized throughout the trip. The house is set up in a way to let the air flow freely. Every window opens, as does every door. The bedrooms are HUGE, with comfy beds and nice linens. Each bedroom has its own bathroom with high ceilings and rain tyle shower heads. If the ceilings are not high enough, step outside, there is an outdoor shower with no ceiling! The living room was very comfortable with leather love seats. Although we didn’t watch any TV, there was a nice flat screen available. The living room really was comfortable, and we had no need to run the air conditioner. We kept the house open with the ceiling fans on, and were just fine.

The kitchen was stocked with everything necessary to produce a fabulous meal. Pots, pans, and some sharp knives were plentiful, as were dishes and drink ware. In addition, the tap water was exquisite. Honestly, it was some of the best water I have ever had. We wanted to bottle it up and bring it home with us.

We probably swam in the pool 3 times a day! The water is clean and the perfect temperature to cool off. We would come home from a morning hike or an afternoon beach trip, rinse off in the outdoor shower and ease in to the refreshing pool!

Everything about this property is well thought out. We could really tell that Kelie loves the house and wants her guests to love it as much as she does. Kelie is pretty much the best property manager ever. Kelie showed up about 30 minutes after we got settled in and went over some of the house details. She also provided us with a very handy map along with some great tips on where to buy things (Auto Mercado is a must) and pointed us in the direction of really good ceviche and a place to buy fresh fish to put on the grill. My recommendation to you, the reader of this review, is to pay attention to the glorious list Kelie provides. EVERYTHING we did on the list lived up to its review and then some. We were very impressed.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2007

About: My first visit to Costa Rica, I knew I had to have my own piece of paradise. I had this home built with surfing and relaxing in mind. To me, Playa Hermosa is a perfect retreat.

Why Playa Hermosa:
So much to do in this area. Surfing, hiking, mountain biking, fishing - it has it all.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
short distance to beach, 10 minutes to Jaco, 5 minutes to one of the most popular zip line tours in the area, horseback riding, hiking and 20 minutes to Los Suenos Marina for world class fishing. You can fill your day with activities, or simply relax by the pool. Perfect for vacations!
