Playa Hermosa house 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!

                      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!
